I know you want your wife back. I'm sorry I'm not her. I wish I was. She was a lucky woman. You would have been an amazing husband.
Florence to Alaric in Best Served Cold

Florence was a vampire trapped in the Phoenix Stone. The spirit was possessing Jo Laughlin's body before she died.

Early History

Florence was a vampire that was stabbed with a metal sword by Rayna and died. Since then, her spirit was trapped in the Phoenix Stone.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series

Season Seven

In I Carry Your Heart With Me, the vampire spirit is resurrected in Jo Laughlin's body at the end of the episode.

In Live Through This, it's presumed that the vampire spirit is possessing Jo Laughlin's body when she lashes out at Alaric, ending up escaping his grips with a gun.

In Best Served Cold, it is revealed that she is dying because her vampire spirit wasn't fit to be inside a human body. She later dies and makes peace with Alaric. It is also revealed that she believed her name to be Florence.


Even though Florence had amnesia and was initially scared of Alaric and lashed out at him, she eventually trusted him as he helped her adapt to the strange world she didn't recognize as she didn't see the 21st century evolved due to being trapped in the stone. Florence proved herself to be kind and emphatic as she cared for Alaric's cut hand and didn't blame him when she was dying, expressing sympathy for his loss suggesting she faced something similar to his situation.

Physical Appearance

It is unknown what Florence's true appearance looked like, but since she was in Jo's body, she took her appearance.
