'The Secret Circle' Scoop: Melissa's Possession Has A Major Impact On Nick

Get the scoop on Melissa & Nick from Jessica Parker Kennedy, then watch a clip from this week’s ‘Secret Circle’!

It doesn’t take a psychic to know the Oct. 13 episode of The Secret Circle is going to suck for Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy.) Now that she’s possessed by Heather’s little demon, it’s up to the remaining five circlers to yank it out of her without doing too much damage. But Jessica tells HollywoodLife.com that this week’s episode will change everything, including Melissa’s future with Nick (Louis Hunter.) That’s assuming, of course, they even have a future to speak of.

“Melissa’s about to go through a bunch of crap,” Jessica admits. “It’s a big test for her, and there’s a good arc for her character. … I think the way she handles the situation is surprising. It’s very telling in terms of her feelings for Nick.”

Yeah, let’s talk about Nick. Jessica jokes that Nick has a “James Dean image,” but it turns out the two might have more in common than just their pouty looks and shared affinity for leather jackets. Fans are abuzz with speculation that Nick will be [POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT] killed off during this week’s episode, based on this new promo image in which Nick is replaced by Chris Zylka‘s Jake, who makes his first appearance on the Oct. 20 episode, suspiciously titled “Wake.”

If things do end up going south for Nick — and by “south,” I mean literally six feet under — it sounds like Melissa will be able to count on her ol’ buddy Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) for support. I know what you’re thinking: Faye’s a total bitch, and a terrible friend to Melissa. I agree. But Jessica tells us that despite their differences, Melissa and Faye have a real connection.

“They have a really innate bond,” Jessica says of her and Phoebe’s characters. “They’re best friends, and though they often don’t see eye-to-eye, she’s her dearest friend. You’ll see a push and pull between them, with Melissa trying to pull rank, but I feel in my heart that they’re going to be friends for life.”

So what do YOU think will happen tonight? Will Nick live to see another day, or will the circle be in need of serious repair come Friday morning? Watch this preview of tonight’s episode, then drop your thoughts in the comments section below:
