With only three episodes left, The Vampire Diaries is bringing back all those characters you never thought you’d see again, including Kelly Donovan!

The CW has released new photos from the series’ penultimate episode, “We’re Planning a June Wedding,” in which Matt’s mother makes an appearance. Kelly Donovan — who was originally written as a succubus — hasn’t been on the show since season 1, but her return could have something to do with the importance of Matt’s family in this season. But more importantly, what’s this wedding, you ask?

Based on the title, it certainly looks like Stefan and Caroline’s dream wedding, but the episode description states that it’s planned in order for Stefan and Damon to “lure a dangerous enemy out into the open.” Here’s to hoping there’s still a bit of romance.
