Why Does Jeremy Gilbert See Dead People?

at . Comments

Jeremy Gilbert sees dead people. Dead ex-girlfriend people, to be exact.

That's all we know about the concluding event on The Vampire Diaries' May finale - and that's all Jeremy will know when we see him again on the September 15 season three premiere.

"We’ll see that he still hasn’t had any success figuring out what it is that they want, or understanding even what it is that they are," producer Julie Plec teases to EW.

Poor Jer

Plec adds that Jeremy won't have told anyone what's going on, which causes Elena and company to wonder why he's acting so strange. Is he on drugs? No, Plec laughs: "He’s just trying to figure out why the hell he’s being haunted by his dead girlfriends.”

Kayla Ewell has said Vicki
is back for revenge, while Plec previews the possibilities of more deceased characters returning:

“We’re gonna have some fun with Vicki and Anna and start to really reveal the secrets of why they’re here, what they want, and who else they have access to from our past."

When might it all come to a head, in the shocking, suspenseful, OMFG-type way that only The Vampire Diaries can pull off? Producer Kevin Williamson hypes an October episode as “the climax of the haunting of Jeremy" and adds:

"Are they there for good? Are they there for bad? It will once again be another twisty story. It’s gonna take a lot of turns and also involves some unlikely participants.”

This thing that is happening to Jeremy i don't think it has anything to do with powers so here is my theory. Jeremy dies and in hopes of bringing him back to life Bonnie consults dead witches for help because she loves him, spell is ruining the balance of nature so it only brings him half back... he is stuck between the dead and the living so he can see and talk to ghost but also talk to living i wont be surprised if he starts to disappear every so often!!


Is Jeremy seeing dead girlfriends or dead (staked) vampires? Jeremy dated both Anna and Vickie but they were also vampires.


I hated the show for leaving this on such a cliffhanger! It's made me so desperate to find out what's going to happen next! I'm so glad Bonnie brought Jeremy back to life, but the witches did tell Bonnie that there will be consequences.. Could the dead ex-girlfriends be part of the consequences? I think Bonnie's got some competition.


i LOVE jeremy!!! i'm so grateful he's not dead. as for his dead girlfriends' i guess that answers the question about whether jenna will resurface? I liked anna, not really sure about vicki but interested to know what happens from here and how it will effect Bonnie/Jer's relationship.

@OMGQT I wonder if Jeremy's new powers are exclusive to just vampires... Even so, they are so many 'ghost vampires' that Jeremy can talk to.. e.g. Aunt Jenna... You just gotta love TVD and other Sci-fi/horror genres as they allow many characters to just come back in a blink of an eye...

The season 3 premiere is coming big and amazing for its arrival. Jeremy is in for a surprising turn as he sees Vicki and Anna back for revenge. I would probably say that they take down the bad vampires with Jeremy and help. If they kill people for their own purpose, that's going to be another story. Who knows what they'll want to do and that's to find out on September 15. I'm sooooo excited for its twisitng but amazing arrival. XD


I am really excited about this storyline, i loved both vicki and anna and i am glad they are 'back' . I think this can get really interesting in a lot of different ways !!




so glad TVD found a way to bring the dead ones back. I loved Anna, is it possible that her mom Pearl could come back too? I love love love PEARL! And Lexi? How about Rose?

I'm so excited! I can't wait for the show to come back.
