Tread carefully! The Vampire Diaries spoilers from TVLine below.

Well, this is interesting news! The Vampire Diaries may be bringing one of its deceased characters back from the grave — permanently.

According to TVLine, one of the ghosts who’s headed for Mystic Falls might get a chance to stay in town for good. Silas has been working to drop the veil between the mortal world and the Other Side. If he succeeds — and judging by the synopses for Season 4, Episode 22, “The Walking Dead” and Season 4, Episode 23, “Graduation,” he does — then the dead supernaturals will be free to wreak havoc on the living.

We’re not entirely certain who’s coming back, but now that we know someone’s sticking around, we can’t wait to find out.

Alaric (Matt Davis) is one possibility, now that Matt Davis’s show Cult was canceled. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) needs his drinking buddy!

Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) is another likely candidate. Elena (Nina Dobrev) has proven she’s no good at life with her lil’ bro gone.

Lexi (Arielle Kebbel) has been a frequent guest star. Maybe she’ll get an upgrade?

Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) might be resurrected — just in time to join his siblings in the spin-off? A dead Original is due back in Mystic Falls.
