"I see dead ex-girlfriends." That's what we wish The Vampire Diaries' Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) would say in a hushed whisper every scene.
Everyone's favorite brooding younger brother has been front and center with his Sixth Sense storyline. From that first chilling stalker ghost in his house to sweet interactions with murdered ex Anna, seasoned Vampire Diaries fans like us should have known being brought back from the dead has some quirky side effects. And shady exes coming out of the woodwork are only the beginning, McQueen tells us...
When last we saw Jeremy he was teamed up for some fun buddy-cop gig with Katherine (Nina Dobrev), but does that mean they are on the same side now? Don't count on it, says McQueen: "Katherine usually has some sort of bad intention, and I think she is usually up to something. With my ring I'm like a never-failing blood bag, so I feel like me being around her is never all that good for me." That's probably a good assessment of the situation if you ask us.
Are Jeremy's problems just of the ghost variety or is it mo' ghosts, mo' problems? Vampire sister lookalikes trying to drink your blood, ghosts, girlfriend hauntings—add in the first day of school and you have a real party. Shocking right? We didn't think these kids still went to school, either.
We aren't going to have to wait forever to find out why these ghosts are visiting Jeremy. "We start to see the intentions of the ghosts," promises McQueen. "In [episode seven] you start to see the consequences of all the craziness that has happened." We like consequences.
So what else can we expect? Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jeremy will skip into the sunset right? Not quite. "I'm starting to deal with my human relationships, family, my girlfriend, and also these ghosts relationships and how they're starting to affect each other." Does that mark the Bonnie-Jeremy romance as doomed? McQueen explains: "Bonnie and I really care for each other, but every time there is something from the past brought into it [that] kind of complicates things."
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
