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

by 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.

I complain about this show because I have the right to express my opinion and no amount of 12 year old fangirls will stop me from doing that!

I really want klaus love interest to be Katherine she said so herself there is such a fine line between love and hate ; )

Maybe the secret weapon has something to do with Stefan turning elena into a vampire and what not! OMG i can't wait! so excited.

@marija you are so right. i hate people that complain about this show. no one is making you watch it. i dont think haters can do a better job. so shhhhh!
Anyway, i love this show and everything about it, (except klaus haha)
cant wait for the new episode.

Just watch the show and stop complaining about every little thing.
For me it will be interesting to see Klaus with a love interest. It will show everyone that Klaus is capable of more then just wrecking havoc.
And yes it is sad that Jeremy is leaving, i love Jeremy's character and to see him go while another Gilbert is coming into town, its just not right.
All we can do is just watch the show and enjoy it.

A new character because we don't have enough of those already? JP is really ruining this show, isn't she? Replacing a regular with a guest star is too low, even for her. I feel sorry for the actor that played Jeremy. Portraying a supporting character really equals unemployment on this show. The regular cast gets 2 min of screentime every 5 ep while guest stars come and go every damn ep. And what the hell does a villain need a love interest for? The house he wants to build to live happily ever after in is too big for him? Is he cold? Why doesn't he buy a bloody radiator then?

And Plec said that Klaus will have kind of a love thing (don't know how to call it, it makes me cringe at the thought of my poor Kläuschen) with someone WE ALREADY KNOW.
(*Don't let it be Elena, dear God, please*)

"kind and warm... but also in possession of a "devilish side."
Lol, that's pretty much how they described EVERY character on this Show.

I hope Stefan and the new girl get together

I don't want another freaking Gilbert, I want Jeremy to stay. I swear, if this Samantha turns out to be Klaus' love interest I may have to throw myself off a cliff. Especially considering she's most likely human. Could you imagine Klaus with a human love interest? LOL. Try not to break your new toy, Klaus, sweetie. And why does every character need a love interest? And why do we need to bring in useless new characters to steal screen time away from the characters we already love? I can't with this show anymore, I just can't.
