Someone who can make Stefan smile has arrived at Mystic Falls, much to Elena's dismay. Next week on "The Vampire Diaries", Arielle Kebble who claimed her fame through her starring role as Lindsay Forester on "Gilmore Girls", has put on fake fangs to become Stefan's oldest vampire friend.
On his birthday, Stefan is surprised by a visit from Lexi, one of his oldest friends. Still upset by the events at the Halloween haunted house, Elena does her best to stay away from Stefan, but Lexi gives her some unsolicited relationship advice.
Asked by Los Angeles Times what kind of impact that Lexi will have on the show, producer Kevin Williamson said, "She's going to come in and stir things up in a good way. I don't want to give too much away, but she has a really great character, a really exciting role. We just watched that episode actually. It's very scary, but also an really emotional episode."
Also in the episode called "162 Candles", Elena and Jenna are surprised by a change in Jeremy's behavior. At Damon's insistence, Caroline tries to get his medallion back from Bonnie. Finally, Damon's offer to help Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) has sudden and tragic results.
