The Vampire Diaries to Introduce...

at . Comments

It was a question we asked on the season three preview edition of The Vampire Diaries Round Table: Which member of Klaus and Elijah's family do you next want to meet?

And while it may not have been the response of any of our panelists, The CW has now provided answer: The brothers' mother is coming to town!

Klaus at the Bar

We'll soon meet Esther, insiders confirm to TV Guide, the mother of the Original family. Look for her to pop up in a flashback that dates back centuries. Described as "strong and as fierce," the character's intentions will be to protect her loved ones at all costs.

No word yet on the exact date on which Esther will debut, or if the role has been cast. Got any suggestions if not? Share them here and/or in our Vampire Diaries forum!

UPDATE: The role has been cast!

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

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.

Damon
