Look Who's Returning to Mystic Falls...

at . Comments

The last time Vampire Diaries viewers saw John Gilbert, he was handing Jeremy his magic ring and heading out of Mystic Falls because Stefan told him to skedaddle.

But we have it on good authority that this character will return to town on the show's second episode of 2011 - and he'll bring a key piece of information with him: how to kill Elijah.

Uncle John Gilbert

Based on a recent Nina Dobrev interview, Elijah will approach Elena on this week's midseason finale and offer her some kind of deal.

What will it be? Are you excited for the return of John Gilbert? Comment away below and/or in our Vampire Diaries forum!

this might be interesting on how to kill ejiah but it also means elena will be seeing her biological father again -- john


This is awesome! I LOVE how absolutely mean and horrible John is to everyone. He is the perfect asshole!


If it means that he has the information to kill Elijah, I'm definitely looking forward to that. John's a good character to have around because he carries a lot of information and history with him.

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
