The Vampire Diaries “The Ties That Bind” Summary

PERSIA WHITE GUEST STARS AS BONNIE’S MOTHER — Bonnie (Kat Graham) believes her recurring dreams about Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) coffins will tell her how he can finally be killed. The dreams also lead Bonnie to a reunion with her estranged mother, Abby (guest star Persia White, “Girlfriends”), whom Bonnie actually hasn’t seen for 15 years.

At Abby’s far, remote farmhouse, Bonnie and Elena (Nina Dobrev) meet Jamie (guest star Robert Ri’chard, “One on One”), the young man Abby took in years earlier. Bonnie’s sudden appearance catches Abby off-guard, but she does her best to explain the past and her reasons for what happened.
