Mystic Falls works fast. The town probably assumes its elected officials could die at any minute, so they likely have a list of people who are ready to serve as backup for each position. 

A lot of them were probably taken out in the Town Council explosion, so they’re bringing in someone we haven’t seen before: Rudy Hopkins, aka Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) dad.

Julie Plec tells TV Guide,He's been caught up to speed and filling in the blanks of information that he knew or didn't know over the years so now he's playing both the role of concerned mayor for the town and concerned father for his daughter.”

Of course, the witch isn’t exactly pleased when her dad becomes involved in her comings and goings. We wonder if this has anything to do with her new friend Professor Shane (David Alpay). It seems like Rudy finds the teacher as shady as Damon (Ian Somerhalder) does.
