A Vampire Diaries Reunion, First Look: Elena and Isobel

at . Comments

On tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries, David Anders debuts as Elena's uncle, John.

But we've got even more exciting news regarding Elena's family: she'll soon be reunited with her birth mom, Alaric's wife Isobel.

While the circumstances surrounding this meeting are unclear for now, the appearance (which takes place on episode 21) of Isobel as a recurring character shouldn't come as a shock. The show hired Mia Kirshner, a well-known actress, for the role.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: Somewhere along the way, you decided I was worth saving. I wanted to thank you for that.
Elena: You're welcome.
