“Beauty and the Beast” is giving Vincent a blast from his past in the form of a mentor played by Christopher Heyerdahl. The prolific genre actor will join the show for episode 14.

Heyerdahl’s character is Dr. Nicholas Markus, a doctor at Vincent’s former hospital and the Beast’s one-time mentor (as reported by TVLine). Dr. Markus and Vincent (Jay Ryan) will meet at St. Benjamin’s Hospital when Vincent tries to save a person there. Whatever happens between the two men could spell the end of Markus’ career.

Familiar to fans of many genre series, Heyerdahl has appeared on shows like “Hell on Wheels” (playing the Swede), “Supernatural” (as Alastair), “Smallville,” “Stargate: Atlantis” and “Sanctuary.”

“Beauty and the Beast” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
