‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 3: who will learn Jeremy’s secret first?

This is going to be tough.

While Jeremy’s ability to speak with the dead is going to remain a secret at first, there is one member of “The Vampire Diaries” cast who is going to find out the truth about what is going on pretty early — and be fairly affected as a result.

(Warning: the following contains spoilers for season three.)

Speaking in a new interview, executive producer Julie Plec confirms that Zach Roerig is going to encounter the supernatural world rather early — and it ends up being rather emotional thanks to an opportunity to talk with his late sister:

“Matt is one of the first people to learn Jeremy’s secret, and one of the loves of Jeremy’s life visiting him from beyond the grave is Matt’s sister Vicki, who he never really had complete closure with. So he is gonna have, with Jeremy, an emotional journey in this supernatural world as he learns that his sister’s out there and contactable and tries to convince Jeremy to help him get the closure that he’s needed.”

It has also been hinted that this “I see dead people”-esque plot is going to reach its climax in October, and we will finally return why Jeremy has been specifically granted this power — and what the spirits of the past want with him specifically.

“The Vampire Diaries” season 3 is set to kick off September 15 on The CW — stay tuned, as we’ll have plenty of news before then.
