We’ve been waiting for weeks for Bonnie (Kat Graham) to pop open Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) fourth coffin. (Why does that sound so dirty?) We got our wish in Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 13, "Bringing out the Dead." All it took was some help from her mother, Abby (Persia White) and… Wow. Look who have here. Mama Original, back from the dead! Basically, finding out who Klaus had been carting around for a millennium only left us with more questions than answers. Why has he been lying this whole time? How will his 1,000-year-old mom adjust to modern-day life? What the heck is going to happen next week?
We’re pretty excited about this twist, but we’re also a little bummed the coffin didn’t contain the original doppelganger. There were so many amazing theories postured about who was in the coffin that the revelation was bound to be bittersweet.
