Be careful! The Vampire Diaries spoilers for Season 4, Episode 22, “The Walking Dead” below!

Do you know what’s ironic? Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) tried to warn everyone about Silas, saying that awakening the ancient immortal would bring about hell on earth. But would anyone listen? No. And now it’s happening — and the dropped veil has allowed the youngest Original brother to return to Mystic Falls.

In the promo video for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 22, “The Walking Dead,” Kol shows up. “Greetings from the dead,” he says, cheekily. Bonnie (Kat Graham) must have lowered the veil between this world and the Other Side. Hm. Is he one of the malevolent spirits who shows up to wreak havoc on the town, or is the Original just stopping by to see his siblings?

Kol can’t be too happy that Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) killed him. Of course, the hunter is now deceased himself, so that only leaves the baby vamp whom he can seek vengeance upon. Maybe Jer will slip through from the Other Side, too? It’d be kind of fun to see those two ghosts have an ethereal battle.

There’s a rumor that one of the spirits might manage to come back permanently. Do you think it will be Kol? If so, he could join his siblings on The Originals... We kind of shudder at the thought of that beautiful monster being an uncle, though.
