He's on his way back, Vampire Diaries Fanatics. And he's bringing his broom.

Daniel Gillies reprises his beloved role of Elijah on tomorrow night's "American Gothic," joking with me over the phone today that he returns to the Tvd picture because his character knows "sh-t is about to hit the fan and Elijah is sort of like a janitor."

"Or maybe a disgruntled house maid," he said. "It's never a little mess, is it? He's always picking up after Klaus and Rebekah."

Where has this Original been since fans saw him last?

"I think he's been waterskiing," Gillies laughed. "He must enjoy base-jumping, right? In a full suit, of course… wouldn't you imagine, if you were a vampire, that extreme sports would be amazing?"

In all seriousness, however, Gillies could not reveal what Elijah has been up to, but he could tease that the "contention for the cure" brings him back into our lives. »
