Aunt Jenna lives! OK, well, not really. When Klaus killed Aunt Jenna in Season 2, our hearts broke for Elena and Jeremy — after all, she was the only family they had left. But it looks like Aunt Jenna will make a surprising return in The Vampire Diaries' 100th episode!
ETonline caught up with the TVD cast at the 100th episode celebration in Atlanta on November 9, and star Zach Roerig spilled the beans on Jenna’s return. “You’re going to be very impressed and happy about some of the folks that come back to town,” said Zach. “For example, the girl to my right, the very talented and lovely Sara Canning.”
However, Sara stayed mum on the big surprise. “I can’t say, of course… but it’s really nice. Whatever the reason I’m here [in Atlanta] for, it’s just really nice to be considered part of the family and to be back with this wonderful cast… it’s so nice having everyone back together. It’s pretty surreal.”
Of course, no one is ever really dead on TVD, but shockingly, this would be the first time we’ve seen Aunt Jenna since her death. In Season 3’s epic episode, “Ghost World,” Anna mentions that Jenna found peace in the after-life and therefore, never experienced The Other Side. (If she found her peace with Alaric is still TBD.) So we’re wondering what would bring Jenna back to life. Could TVD be doing an alternative reality episode? Or will there be another flashback to a time when things were much, much simpler?
We’ll have to wait and see, TVD fans, but for now, let’s celebrate Jenna’s forthcoming return to Mystic Falls!
