A Vampire Diaries Reunion, First Look: Elena and Isobel

at . Comments

On tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries, David Anders debuts as Elena's uncle, John.

But we've got even more exciting news regarding Elena's family: she'll soon be reunited with her birth mom, Alaric's wife Isobel.

While the circumstances surrounding this meeting are unclear for now, the appearance (which takes place on episode 21) of Isobel as a recurring character shouldn't come as a shock. The show hired Mia Kirshner, a well-known actress, for the role.

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.
