Gabby Douglas guest stars on The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries meets The Flying Squirrel

The Olympians take over! America's medalists from the London Olympics keep popping up all over television. This week, Gabby Douglas makes a guest appearance on The Vampire Diaries.

The Vampire Diaries meets The Flying Squirrel

The all-new episode of The Vampire Diaries looks like it's going to be a good one! It's time for the annual Miss Mystic Falls Pageant, and the town is aflutter in preparation. All while dealing with all the usual vampire/witch drama, of course.

On the pageant front, everyone is teaming up. Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline are helping April decide which dress to wear. Meanwhile, Tyler and Hayley are working on a "secret project." The Vampire Diaries crew has been pretty hush-hush about what's in store for Gabby Douglas' role. Is it possible that she'll be in the pageant? Could she be Tyler and Hayley's project? We may be completely off base on those guesses, but we SheKnows girls can dream, right? Who wouldn't want to see The Flying Squirrel all dolled up?

During all of the pre-pageant scurrying, Elena's boys have their own things going on. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) are working on "projects" too. First, Damon is still leery of Professor Shane. What exactly is he up to in Mystic Falls? When Damon tries to coax (the newly single) Stefan into helping him figure out and confront Professor Shane, Stefan refuses. He's working on something else with the creepy and untrustworthy Klaus.

Tension between the brothers continues to mount, especially now that Elena is single again.

Everything will finally come to blows during the pageant (of course). Damon will confront Professor Shane with his suspicions. We'll also find out that Jeremy may have waited too long to call attention to his slightly disturbing dreams when we discover their source during the big event.

Will we be right about Gabby Douglas and Tyler and Hayley's top-secret project? What will Damon find out about Professor Shane? And, most importantly, can any good come out of Stefan working with Klaus?

You'll have to tune in to find out! The Vampire Diaries' new episode, "My Brother's Keeper," airs Thursday at 8/7c.
