bonnie's family reunion!

The connection between Caroline and Klaus was undeniable on last week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, but until this coffin business is settled, something tells us love isn't going to come easy for the baddest vamp around -- or ever.

bonnie's family reunion!

Bonnie can't take a snooze anymore without dreaming up creepy visions of Klaus and his coffins -- yeah, we're pretty sure she has the answers in her subconscious somewhere.

Lo and behold, Bonnie's mom is making her witchy entrance on The Vampire Diaries new episode, "The Ties That Bind," to help her daughter figure things out, but it might not be the happy reunion we think it will be.

This is going to bite, but we have to say it: With Bonnie's mom Abby on the scene, it feels like Mystic Falls might be getting one step closer to figuring out Klaus' Achilles' heel -- a.k.a. the fourth coffin -- and we're kind of miffed about that because we do not want to lose this hybrid.

TVD doesn't bring in a new character (Bonnie's mom) for giggles and after watching Klaus and Caroline's shocking, yet awe-inspiring interaction last week, we want to give "peace a chance" and see more of crazy-town Klaus' delicate side -- not kill him.

Check out a preview of "The Ties That Bind" and then watch the full episode of The Vampire Diaries Thursday, Jan. 19...

The CW officially teases "The Ties That Bind" as the following: "Bonnie (Kat Graham) believes her recurring dreams about Klaus' (Joseph Morgan) coffins will tell her how he can be killed. The dreams also lead Bonnie to a reunion with her mother, Abby (guest star Persia White, Girlfriends), whom Bonnie hasn't seen for 15 years. At Abby's 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. Tyler (Michael Trevino) turns to an unexpected ally in his quest to regain his free will. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is intrigued by Alaric's (Matt Davis) new friend, Dr. Fell (guest star Torrey Devitto), and Klaus continues his bitter negotiations with Stefan (Paul Wesley) over control of the coffins containing his family members."

We want to hear from the fang-fans, what was your take on the scene between Klaus and Caroline last week on The Vampire Diaries?

Is there a future for the hybrid and the vamp?
