Jake will make his first appearance next week, when he comes into town to attend his brother Nick’s wake. But other than providing some much-needed eye-candy, how will Jake fit into the now-broken Circle?
“There is no easy answer,” Andrew Miller admits to E!, “But mythology-wise, Chris Zylka's character will contribute to the idea of what a bound circle is in a surprising way.... Nick's death will cause reverberations within the circle, but it will bring in new complications from outside the circle, from outside of town, and that will be embodied in the incredibly body of Chris Zylka! He's coming to town because of Nick's death, but because he's coming to town, the circle will get messed up.”
Uh oh, we don’t like the sound of that! Is Chris going to go all demon-worm on us?
“He's going to shake up Adam (Thomas Dekker) and Cassie (Britt Robertson), he's going to shake up Diana (Shelley Hennig) and Faye (Phoebe Tonkin), and he's going to shake up Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and Faye. He's going to shake up everyone because he has a history with all of them that will really change up the dynamic of our circle. We'll discover that Adam has a very specific and angry past with Jake, and we'll get into their relationship. The second that he rolls back into town it's going to be a problem for Adam.
Poor Adam. Better pop in some Elliott Smith to get your head in the game, buddy.
