In Pilot, he appears in the form of Meredith's mother Gabriella.

In Say Anything, Meredith invites him (thinking he is her mother) to a catch-up dinner. Silas accepts. He later taunts Juliette, promising to hurt Meredith for the sake of it.

In All Through The Night, Meredith and Silas have their dinner and Silas leaves satisfied. Later, Juliette informs Meredith that Silas was there and not her mother, leaving Meredith infuriated.
