'The Secret Circle' Key Comments: Fans Are 'Devastated' Over [Spoiler]'s Death!

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.

I stopped watching after that because any series that kills off one of the most popular book characters five episodes in to their FIRST season is clearly in the hands of complete lunatics.

Honestly, the product they’ve given us so far isn’t strong enough to pull that kind of stunt and all it’s done is confirm my (sad) suspicions that this show isn’t really worth getting invested in.

Someone in charge clearly doesn’t know what they’re doing and that makes me nervous.

I’m out.

do people honestly only watch programs to look at attractive people? for real i’m face palming at all the comments about how people are no longer going to watch this show because an undeveloped character, played by an attractive male, was killed of a quarter of the way into the first season… So much for plots, acting, and writing… No wonder there are so few substance shows catering to this particular demographic.

So few of these book to tv adaptation play out like the written series…mostly none do…yet the storylines can still be strong and interesting. I don’t really miss his character. He was an attractive guy but… he didn’t really add to the plot presented in any necessary way… I don’t see how “the show is ruineddddd!1212111″ tbh… The show is just beginning…

If you were a fan of the original series though (which I am), you would be very upset that Nick died, even if it was a crappy TV version of the character. I’m not a fan of this show and don’t watch it. The show was awful to begin with and I can only imagine where it will go from here.

Meh, the actor isn’t really anything special.

Keep in mind that the ones most angry are the book fans which kinda throws your logic out of the window.

LJ Smith didn’t write a hot set of pecs…she wrote a character.

The writers might have effed up that character (and casting tbh) from the get go but instead of taking the character development route they er, kill him off and bring him back under a different name.

See where I’m going with this?

Shock tactics + undermining the majority of your fanbase is the quickest way for an audience to lose faith in the people in charge.

I’m done with this show now that they’ve killed off Nick in the fifth episode. He was the most interesting character.

We should’ve known this show was going to suck after seeing the pilot. It is nothing like the books! What happened to the secret members like Debra and Suzanne, Faye’s sidekicks. Debra was Nick’s cousin who ended up backing up Cassie and defending her after Nick and Cassie started dating. And what happened to the Henderson twins? If you are going to make a show based on certain books maybe you should actually read the books! I’m extremely disappointed in this show!

What the heck? I’ve read the books and Nick is my favorite. Book Nick was like Damon of TVD. I was actually starting to like him and Melissa together and what did they do? THEY FREAKING KILLED HIM OFF. GAH, I’M FUMING RIGHT NOW >.<

UGHHHH BRING NICK BACK! It’s like killing off Damon Salvatore for the Vampire Diaries! See because Adam = stefan and Nick = Damon. I totally loved that and now I’m outraged, if they don’t bring him back I’ll stop watching. At least I’ll still have TVD Where they don’t KILL OFF MAIN CHARACTERS.

What. The. Hell.
What did they DO?! He was a character from the book- AN ORIGINAL! And they KILLED HIM OFF?
BULLSHIT.
Okay but maybe – MAYBE – they are going to bring in another character that was in the books that wasn’t originally on the show to step in for him. I’m OUTRAGED but let’s face it – I don’t think any of us could stay mad at Secret Circle fore long.

this is the stupidest move ever. By killing a member of the circle it defeats the purpose of the show “the secret cicle”, without one member its hardly the circle its supposed to be. It makes absolutely no sense. Uhhhh….Nick was too good a character to kill off. The series are completely ruined for me.

Well I’m definitely not watching the show anymore. Nick was my fav character and a major part of the books. So unless they bring him back I just don’t think I can watch another episode.

I think the faith of the show was lost when the show writers decided to not fallow the plot of the book. It’s a dam-shame I love the story. :<
