The Vampire Diaries Promo: "Isobel"

by at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries has a difficult task ahead of it next week:

It must follow up on "Blood Brothers," the episode many consider to have been the best of the season. That includes this reviewer, and you can read why RIGHT NOW.

Next Thursday's new installment is titled "Isobel," which sums up the hour's focus. It's all about Alaric's ex-wife and Elena's birth mother. Why is she in town? What does she want? And will Elena be heartbroken by their first meeting?

Based on the promo below, we can answer those questions for now with: I don't know, I can't wait to find out and, unfortunately, yes.

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
