Look Who's Returning to Mystic Falls...

by 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 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.

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.
