Secret Circle Producer Explains Episode Shocker, Looks Ahead

by at . Comments

THE SECRET CIRCLE SPOILER WARNING: Stop reading right now if you have yet to watch last night's episode. Seriously. Cue up the DVR and/or go read our review before delving into an interview with executive producer Andrew Miller.

Why? Because he's about to go into depth about the shocking development that went down on "Wake."

So... wow. Nick is dead. Why did writers make this decision?

Miller tells E! News it was all about "establishing the stakes" of this world.

"The reality is, we had this show about a group of people connecting with one another in order to achieve great things," Miller said. "It felt like you couldn't fully understand what that meant without breaking that connection somehow."

And break it the series most definitely did. But in a permanent manner? Might we see Nick again, considering the supernatural basis of The Secret Circle? "There are no plans for that," Miller says.

How will the remaining five members of the coven react to Nick's demise? As you might expect, Miller says it will hit Melissa "harder than anybody" and even affect her friendship with Faye.

What about the now-broken circle? Keep a close eye on the introduction of Chris Zylka's Jake, Miller says, who comes on board next week as Nick's older brother. Look for him to "shake up" pretty much every relationship, while contributing "to the idea of what a bound circle is in a surprising way."

Adam won't exactly be Jake's biggest fan, either.

What did you think of Nick's death?

This was awful! I liked this guy. I saw potencial in a pretty hot triangle between him, Melissa and Faye! I mean this serie is interesting but I need characters on a show who I love to hate. I always love the underdogs the most, so since I'm not all too far into this serie I'm gonna stop watching now! But thanks to the writers for not misleading the viewers!

I totally agree with Nick's death. I had nothing against this character but it's clear that we don't want the show to end ok every week. It's great not to be use to the stories. It's not only for shocking you guys, it's for the story. I'm sorry for those who loves Nick.

Nick is dead. . .i'm sad cause I'm hoping they can do a lot better to that characters storyline. I'm reading the books and I kinda hope we can see more developed for the next episodes. . so it will not be cancelled. . .

Also, in the books, all the characters except Cassie are born in the same month, each a day or two apart. So the whole older brother thing tore that mythology apart....I hope they stick with the book mythology. Gosh, the books really are amazing =/ with TVD, I didn't really care for the books but with TSC it's the other way around!

Nick was definitely one of my favorite characters from the book. I feel like he had so much more potential on the show than he was allowed and I didn't like the way he came off. It was completely different than in the books. Just like they portray Diana as this clingy girlfriend when in the books she's strong and so good that Cassie can't help but like her & not want to betray her. In the show, Cassie does it more out of her own conscience and not really about Diana. So the show takes a lot of liberties and if Jake ends up personifying the real character of Nick, then I'll be happy. Cassie needs the Nick of the books right now. As for the boy girl ratio, in the books a full circle was 12 members so there are 5 guys and 7 girls, I believe.

Should have been Adam.
