Sorry to say, but someone we know and possibly love will die in Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 9, “O Come All Ye Faithful.” We’re not sure if it’ll be a major player or if there will be some loophole (we can hardly think of a character who hasn’t died and come back to life at least once), but we’ll speculate on some of the likely suspects before Thursday, December 13.

Aw, Matt (Zach Roerig). He’s such a good kid, what with his job and his football and his high school shenanigans. Some may say he’s boring, but he’s trying to earn his keep around his supernatural friends. Give the guy a break!

He even moved in with Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), concerned his bro might do something crazy like stab his sister. What a guy! But that’s why we’re worried about him.

See, Matt is barely mentioned in the synopsis, and Jeremy gets taken to the Gilbert cabin to get de-hunterized. Would Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Elena (Nina Dobrev), and Bonnie (Kat Graham) need to take such drastic measures if something dramatic hadn’t happened? The kid nearly murdered his sister, and all they did was send him to his room for a timeout!

Back when Connor (Todd Williams) was the Five’s rep, he had no problem stabbing April (Grace Phipps), an innocent human. Maybe Jeremy will tire of being babysat by Matt and snap his neck?

Ugh, that image is too upsetting. We can’t think about it anymore. Pull through, Matty!
