The Vampire Diaries to Welcome a New Gilbert: Who is Samantha?

at . Comments

Forget the details. The devil will soon be in Mystic Falls.

According to E! News, just as one Gilbert is leaving town - Jeremy, of course, who this Vampire Diaries clip proves will at least show up in "Our Town" - another is scheduled to arrive.

A series source says Samantha Gilbert will stop by in the near future, describing the character as kind and warm... but also in possession of a "devilish side." What might cause is to be unleashed? And who the heck is Samantha Gilbert? Both good questions. Let's tune in and find out, shall we?

Meanwhile, the same insider says Stefan will soon use Elena as his "ultimate weapon" in his fight against Klaus.

What might that mean? Based on the promo above, which makes it clear Thursday's episode will center on the battle between these two enemies, we may find out in just a couple days.

UPDATE: Julie Plec says we will not meet Samantha in the present day. She'll show up via flashback.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
