As previously reported, The Vampire Diaries isn't through with 1864.
The series will flashback to that time period again this winter, as viewers meet Damon and Stefan's father Giuseppe, played by James Remar.
That same February 4 episode - titled “Children of the Damned” - will also mark the return of Emily, Bonnie's great, great, great, great grandmother and Katherine's handmaiden.
The character is played by Bianca Lawson (pictured), who has also appeared on shows such as The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Bones. For now, she's only booked for that one installment.
