We’re finally getting more details about the mysterious famous relation named Samantha Gilbert. TV Guide reports that Lindsey R. Garrett (Revenge) has been cast as the gossipy girl, but don’t worry, Elena (Nina Dobrev) doesn’t have to transform Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) teen cave into a guestroom: Samantha is only set to appear in one of Vampire Diaries’ patented flashbacks.

In a late-February episode titled “1912,” we’ll meet Samantha, who has been described as sweet with a bit of a sassy streak (run in the family, much?). We’re guessing that title offers a hint as to the flashback’s era, which means more period hair for Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley). (That must be why Ian was sporting that wig last week.) According to TV Guide, both brothers will spend some time with Sam — could this mean yet another Salvatore love triangle?
