If you thought Vicki's return to the "The Vampire Diaries" was going to be a peaceful one, guess again. While death may have tamed her, Casper the Friendly Ghost she most certainly is not.
Yesterday we caught up with Vicki's real-life alter ego Kayla Ewell to chat about her guest appearance on "The Glades" (airing Sunday at 10 p.m./ 9 C on A&E) and talk inevitably turned to our favorite CW series and, more specifically, how Vicki has changed since joining the after-life and how her return will affect Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).
"Did death reform her? Of course it did. But it didn’t change her completely," Kayla said. "I’m still going to be a little bit of the trouble-maker, and I kind of just don’t know any other way to be."
So what do Vicki’s trouble-making ways mean for Bonnie and Jeremy’s budding relationship? When we spoke to Kat recently, she told us that the return of Jeremy’s exes may bring out Bonnie’s possessive side and, judging from what Kayla told us, that may not be a bad thing.
"Vicki and Anna, they’re going to put up a fight. They’re not going to leave quietly. And so that’s definitely something that’s going to affect Bonnie as well because they’re finally happy and in love and, as always in television, there’s never really a happy ending," Kayla said. "Someone has to stir it up, and Vicki is definitely stirring things up." Naturally.
Bonnie isn't the only one impacted by Vicki's return though. Kayla said that Vicki will be tending to a lot of unfinished business now that she's back in Mystic Falls, especially where her brother is concerned.
"There’s unresolved issues with everyone, and the writers are doing a really good job addressing pretty much all issues that have been unresolved," said Kayla. "They're going to explore the brother-sister relationship between Matt and Vicki a lot too because they were brother and sister and then all of a sudden Vicki dies and then Matt doesn’t have any resolution."
Kayla added that Vicki's return will also bring Matt and Jeremy closer together.
"Matt and Jeremy, they go on a journey together and they kind of bond over it," she said. "It’s a bonding experience for the two of them and then it’s a bonding experience for Vicki and Matt and Vicki and Jeremy."
Fans can expect Vicki to stick around for a significant chunk of season three, and if Kayla has her way, she won't be leaving without wreaking some major havoc.
"What I really, really want and hope they do is a giant catfight between Bonnie and Anna and Vicki because there are so many magical powers at work," she said. "I don’t even know where to begin to write that scene but I know that if anyone can do it Kevin and Julie can do that."
An epic battle between Vicki, Anna and Bonnie? Count us in!
