‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4 spoilers: More on Daniel Gillies, meeting true Silas

Daniel GilliesReady for some new “Vampire Diaries” scoop? Well, we are getting closer than ever to seeing Daniel Gillies finally return to the show as Elijah, and it is only a matter of time until he is around in a full-time capacity so long as The CW picks up “The Originals” (which seems close to a sure thing as long as the pilot is decent).

So what does Julie Plec have to say about the actor’s return? While she is not dishing many concrete details about what is coming up for him in a new chat with TVLine, she does at least explain that we are going to get a sense of what he has been up to in his absence from Mystic Falls:

“It’ll be fun to have him back in our Mystic Falls universe … We finally get a sense of what he’s been doing during his whole absence from our world.”

In addition to that, we have some bonus scoop! Plec says that eventually, the show is going to cast an actor to play the part of Silas after he has bounced around in a few different forms as of late … similar to how they promised to eventually cast Klaus after he did not exactly show up within his own body at first. There’s no word as to whether or not this will happen during season 4 or during the already-announced season 5, that is still to be seen.

Do you want to hear about how “Vampire Diaries” fans managed to convince Plec and the producers to give Michael Trevino one more appearance this season? If so, be sure to head on over to the link here. Sadly, there are no new episodes of the show airing on The CW until Thursday, March 14.
