The actress — who is coming off an arc as Bill’s great great great granddaughter (and lover!) on True Blood — will play Alice, a cute, cool and artsy “downtown girl” who is something of a comic book aficionado. She runs into the guys at, where else, the comic book store.

Ford is slated to first appear in the Oct. 27 episode.
