According to the latest E! Spoiler Chat, producers are casting for actors to come on board as Grayson and Miranda Gilbert - Elena's adopted parents, who raised her as their own after John Gilbert took girlfriend Isobel to his brother's for delivery assistance - and there's a twist:

The guest stars will be required to take scuba lessons, which likely means we'll be taken back to the car accident off the bridge that took Grayson and Miranda's lives and which, unbeknownst to Elena at the time, represented the first contact between Stefan and his future love.

The Vampire Diaries returns with a new episode on March 15, an installment that will flash a lot further back into the lives of these beloved characters. Are you ready to travel to 1912?

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.
