Hold your horses, Jeremy fans. This doesn’t necessarily mean Bonnie (Kat Graham) has managed to raise her former boyfriend from the dead. TVD is keeping a tight lid on what goes down with Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) little brother. TVLine hints Steven might not even return as Jeremy at all.
Here are some possibilities: Silas could impersonate the recently deceased high schooler. The ancient immortal has proven himself to be a successful shapeshifter already. Or that veil between the worlds could come down and Alaric (Matt Davis), Lexi (Arielle Kebbel), and many more departed supernaturals could join Jeremy. Then there’s always the flashback route.
Either way, it’s likely that any glimpse of Jer — or someone that looks like him — could prove instrumental in getting Elena to snap out of her no-emotions phase. It’s clear the Salvatores haven’t managed to flip her humanity switch again, but seeing her baby bro might stir some feelings.
Whatever happens, we’re glad to have Steven back on our TVs again! Do dead supernaturals wear tank tops?
