has dropped hints about what will happen when Uncle John returns to The Vampire Diaries
reports that John (David Anders) will be back in Mystic Falls by February and Canning explained that her character Jenna will be unhappy about his comeback.
"We've seen to what degree already John affects Jenna," she said. "We know they've had a past relationship. We know that he's making trouble for her in terms of guardianship of Elena and Jeremy. He just kind of irks her in every possible way."
However, Canning explained that John's return will also put pressure on Jenna's relationship with Alaric (Matt Davis).
"In the first season, that was a lot of, 'Oh, he's got a dead wife', or so Jenna thinks, and he was dealing with Isobel returning as a vampire," she said. "It's just been a shenanigan of a relationship from the get-go. But now they've kind of got a nice thing going, and I think they're really crazy about each other. But the major thing is the secrets that Alaric is a part of that Jenna is oblivious to."
She continued: "I don't think John is going to make their relationship an easy thing. He's got his own motives. He may need to use Alaric in some of those motives. So we will see."The Vampire Diaries
returns on January 27 at 8/7c on The CW.
