After The Vampire Diaries season 2 finale, so many questions arose when Bonnie Bennett brought Jeremy Gilbert back from the dead and, as a consequence, the ghosts of Vicki Donovan and Anna popped up to haunt the living hell out of their ex-boyfriend. Jeremy seemed so traumatized over the experience and viewers were wondering what this crazy twist meant for the Mystic Falls crew.
However, after TVD episode 3.05 “The Reckoning” aired on October 13th, the truth came out —Jeremy isn’t all that special. Apparently, anyone in Mystic Falls who dies by natural means and comes back to life can! So, without further adieu, let’s welcome the newest addition to the Ghost Whisperer’s Club…Matt Donovan!
As swoonworthy as Mister “Blue Eyes” is, he made a very reckless decision on “The Reckoning.” Matt decided to take his life by wrapping weights around his waist and jumping into the school’s swimming pool. To be fair though, he was doing it under dire circumstances (aka help his friends out by figuring out a way to defeat Klaus.) Also, he did call Bonnie to asked her to revive him via her witch powers. When she informed him that she couldn’t do that kind of magic anymore, he told her to use CPR. Then, he plunged right in.
Luckily, Bonnie was able to rescue him in time so viewers didn’t have to bid farewell to another beloved Vampire Diaries regular. (Bonnie should win a hero’s Medal at this point the way she’s always saving everyone.) Moreover, due to his few lifeless minutes, Matt can see ghosts too, including his beloved sister Vicki.
It’s great that Matt and Vicki have reunited because goodness knows that boy can use some happiness in his life…but conflict could arise. Why? Because Vicki is looking for a way to come back and Anna is trying prevent her from doing so. Jeremy, who was torn between his two exes advice, took the smart path and shut them both out. However, Matt might not be so quick to dismiss his sister, especially now that she’s in his life.
Will there be trouble now that Vicki has access not only to Jeremy but her brother Matt? If so, what does this mean for Mystic Falls? Leave your Vampire Diaries season 3 theories below!
