Fans of the Secret Circle book series were allegedly surprised when original character Nick died just five episodes into the television series, claiming that his character was an integral part of the books’ story. It also shocked just-TV viewers, who saw Louis Hunter (Nick) primarily featured in all of the series’ promotional material. This blogger, personally, was annoyed that the crystal wasn’t used to bring him back to life… seeing as that was a plot device that was used in the second episode. And then again twice since then. And has been the centerpiece of the parents’ story since the show’s inception.
Well surprise! It appears that Nick will be resurrected. According to Zap2It, Nick will make his return on the series soon (date TBA, apparently) and won’t be the same character we got to… uh, see killed?… in the fall. Nick’s return will have great ramifications for his brother Jake, who has somewhat taken his place in the Circle, and his girlfriend (uh, f— buddy?) Melissa. The series producers claimed that Nick’s death was needed to show the other characters that they were living in a dangerous world with real repercussions. Does Nick’s resurrection just undo all that?
More so, does this mean Nick can truly be in contention for The Other Blackwell Child? Uh oh!
