What would a trip into Damon Salvatore’s subconscious be without a visit from a few (mostly) friendly faces?
The CW on Monday released several new shots from Friday’s episode of The Vampire Diaries (8/7c), appropriately titled “Nostalgia’s a Bitch,” featuring the return of two beloved characters: Sheriff Forbes (played by Marguerite MacIntyre) and Tyler Lockwood (played by Michael Trevino).
As you probably recall, Caroline’s mom lost her battle with cancer back in Season 6, while Tyler lost his life by Damon’s hands — er, fangs — earlier in Season 8.
Here’s Friday’s official episode description for context:
THE RINGING OF THE BELL — Sybil enacts revenge on Damon by putting him in a catatonic state. Caroline and Bonnie enter Damon’s mind and run into familiar faces from the past, only to discover Stefan is the key to Damon’s fate. It’s a race against time for the bell as both Sybil and her sister Seline jockey for its control.
Keep in mind, Tyler and Sheriff Forbes are only the characters The CW wants us to know about ahead of time. There’s no telling which other familiar faces (*cough* Kai) Caroline and Bonnie might encounter during their trip to Damonland.
