‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4, episode 11 preview: Why Bonnie’s father is arriving

Kat GrahamEver since we first heard that Bonnie’s father was going to be making some sort of visit on “The Vampire Diaries” season 4, there have been all sorts of questions that have come up as a result. What’s one of the most prominent ones? Let’s just say that revolves around what role this man is going to have after being pretty much absent for much of her entire life.

The CW has just released their first official synopsis for the hit show’s January 17 return “After School Special,” and it suggests that Bonnie’s daddy dearest is going to immediately take on an important role in the town of Mystic Falls. This is not the only thing that is set to happen in this eventful episode, though, as we will learn about Rebekah’s next move after “waking up” and just what Damon and Matt are going to be working together on to the surprise of everyone:

“Appearing unexpectedly at Mystic Falls High, Rebekah (Claire Holt) wastes no time trying to force Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) to answer her questions about the search for a cure, leading to a bombshell piece of information from Elena. When Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) father, Rudy Owens (guest star Rick Worthy, ‘Supernatural’), accepts the role of Interim Mayor, he makes it a priority to protect his daughter, who isn’t at all comfortable with the role he suddenly wants to play in her life. Professor Shane (guest star David Alpay) continues to encourage Bonnie to believe in her powers, but he soon finds himself in danger when he reveals too much to the wrong person. Later, Caroline does her best to comfort Tyler (Michael Trevino) after a violent confrontation. Meanwhile, at the lake house, Damon and Matt (Zach Roerig) train Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), trying to raise his game as a hunter, but Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is impatient with their progress and intervenes to speed up the process.”

Hopefully, Bonnie will not spend so much time with Shane that she gets to explore this relationship with her dad, which is refreshing mostly in the sense that it is something relatively new for the show that we have not seen before.
