'The Vampire Diaries' Mikael: Meet Sebastian Roche's vampire who hunts vampires




In the final moments of last week's doozy of a "Vampire Diaries" episode, Katherine (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) broke into a crypt and woke up a very cranky vampire.


This is actually our second time meeting Mikael, played by "Supernatural's" Sebastian Roché -- he's the vampire hunter police chief with the wooden bullets who crashed Klaus and Stefan's party in the 1920s.


First of all, his name is spelled Mikael, a fact that producers kept under-wraps initially, just as they kept the spelling of Rebekah's name a secret. The old-world spellings certainly betray the ages of the vampires in question.


It remains to be seen for sure whether Mikael is an Original vampire. There's a notable absence of a white-oak silver dagger in his chest when Katherine opens the tomb. However, he is wrapped in chains, and has clearly dessicated without being able to feed on blood, so it's likely that he was never killed by a dagger or a stake -- just stuck in the tomb, as the 1864 vampires were in Season 1.


The general consensus is that Mikael may be the Original father -- that is, Rebekah and Elijah's father. We know that the Original dad had quite a temper, since he killed the werewolf who fathered Klaus. But is his temper dangerous enough that he would hunt his own children? Remember, Klaus wasn't the only one on the run from Mikael in the 1920s. Rebekah feared him as well.


We know that Mikael was entombed by a witch in the Pickett wing of the largest cemetery in Charlotte at some point in the 1990s. Given that this is "The Vampire Diaries," we have to assume that there's some significance to that time frame... and our first thought is that Elena, the first viable doppelganger in five centuries, was born right around then. And how convenient that at the time of his capture, Mikael was in the Southeast United States, the birthplace of the doppelganger.


Of all the gin joints...


This is pure speculation, but we'd guess that if Mikael's grudge is truly against Klaus, and if he really wants to give Klaus a terrible, horrible, no-good very bad day, killing the doppelganger just might be on his checklist. After all, Elena hasn't had any kids -- unless she and Matt had a very exciting freshman year -- so we can assume that the doppelganger bloodline ends with her.

According to plec it can't lol :D


Elena always has to be at risk of GETTING DEAD, lol. Again and again and again, as an useless object. :)


Every villain and good guy has to care about her and base their goals around her :P


god i miss days when villains could care less about main character.


Ala btvs, when a common reaction the main character would get from longterm villains was bassically going all "who are you, bug, lol?" and continuing to do whatever they were doing that does not involve main character even.

Yeah, have to say this whole "everyone wants/needs to kill Elena thing" has been done, they need to find another way to revolve the plot around her (if it has to) without it being about her impending death.

They should stop revolving plot around her. period.


IT DOES NOT WORK. Even if you put a cardboard  upon church altair it is still damn cardboard.

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: 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.
