Vampire's, being all cold n' that, don't sweat. The human fans of The CW's The Vampire Diaries are sweating. PROFUSELY. It's gonna be a long summer until fans get a taste of the new season in the fall, and see what's been happening after the cliffhangers of Season 4.
One question we wanna know is: will 's Lexi be back?
Now we can be certain that Kebbel's claims at the 2013 ATX Television Fest of a potential spin-off sitcom (SITCOM!?!?!!?!) for her and Alaric () were a one big fat jokey quib, it's whether Lexi will appear in Season 5 that's hot on the lips of fans.
Yes, her veil storyline seemed pretty wrapped-up at the end of Season 4, but since she's a kickass best friend of Stefan (), it would be great to fit her in. And Kebbel herself had this to say in an interview with zap2it:
"It's important for me to let the fans know that they have truly helped to keep Lexi alive. I love the character deeply, and [executive producer] Julie Plec loves the character, and we are doing the best we can to continue keeping her alive.
"The exciting thing about Lexi is that you never know when she's going to pop up ... but she absolutely can. And most likely will. We've had some talk [about Lexi possibly appearing on the upcoming spinoff 'The Originals'], but that's uncharted territory, so they're still figuring out how they want to handle that."
This sounds promising. Especially with the new Klaus-centric spinoff to factor into the equation - I highly expect we will be seeing the ghostly bloodsucker on AT LEAST one of the two shows this fall.
What do you guys think? Eager for more Lexi? Or think it's time for the deceased bloodsucker to lay down the ghost? Sound off in the comments below!
