Thanks to TV Guide I have a few spoilers to share for "The Vampire Diaries". It was spoiled earlier that David Anders will return to Mystic Falls to reprise his role as John Gilbert in episode 13, "Daddy Issues". Now it looks as if Isobel, Elena's Biological mother, might be returning as well, plus news on the Damon/Bonnie front.
Any chance Isobel (Mia Kirshner) will return on Vampire Diaries? — Heather
NATALIE: Yes! Elena's malevolent-hot birth mother will be back to share her wealth of vampire knowledge. Maybe. "Isobel has a lot of information and will continue to be useful for that information," executive producer Julie Plec tells us. "Where she is right now, what she's doing and whose side she's on — those questions start to get asked very soon." (She's also not the only birth parent returning to town.)
Will Damon and Bonnie grow closer?
Vampires and witches are notoriously enemies, but in Season 2, Bonnie (Katerina Graham) and Damon eventually teamed up to fight the bigger fight. The question is whether or not they will take it a step further and develop the close bond they do in the novels. Plec understands that theirs is a relationship important to book fans, but says, for now, they'll just remain frenemies. "The fun we have with them right now is [going] from two people who have absolutely no respect, admiration or love for each other, whatsoever, but because they share a common goal and share common loves, they come together and are willing to put their differences aside and work together."
