From ‘Let’s start a petition’ to ‘I don’t think I can keep watching,’ fans of ‘The Secret Circle’ are mourning the loss of Nick Armstrong.

Even though I knew going into the Oct. 13 episode of The Secret Circle that Nick (Louis Hunter) was going to die, nothing could have prepared me for the flood of emotions I felt watching him go — and watching his fellow circle members react to the tragedy. And I clearly wasn’t alone, as dozens of outraged commenters took to HollywoodLife.com‘s recap of the episode with their own sentiments of sadness, frustration — and in one case,  dreams of a shirtless ghostly future.

Many fans believe Nick had serious potential and were looking forward to seeing him mature, not only as a person, but as a love interest for Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy.)

Chloe 24 writes: “Characters like Nick (think Damon from Vampire Diaries) are always huge fan favorites, because they can be developed over time and grow into better people.”

Tristin adds: “I wanted to see nick and mellissa become a actally couple :(”

But the most intense outrage of all seemed to come from fans of L.J. Smith‘s original Secret Circle book series:

A. Knight wrote: “Fans of the original books, like myself, should be royally ticked. I mean, I loved Book Nick, and I was really starting to get into TV Nick + Melissa. … If they keep killing off members of the circle then I don’t think I can keep watching. :(”

Despite their collective sadness over Nick’s sudden departure, however, some fans remain hopeful we will see him again someday:

Verybookish ponders: “Maybe they’ll bring him back as a shirtless ghost.”

Considering this is a show about witches, and it’s on The CW, I’d say that’s a very good possibility.

This is so messed up! How could they kill him off in the 5th flipping episode? Not only that but he was starting to open up to Melissa! They could have been SO good together. Now i think they will replace Nick with his brother Jake, i don’t think i like that. BRING NICK BACK, NOW!!!!
