secret-circle-louis-hunter.jpg "Secret Circle" fans, you're in for a treat. John Blackwell isn't the only fallen witch returning from the dead before the end of the first season.

Zap2it has exclusively confirmed that Nick ( Louis Hunter), who was killed in a surprise twist in the fifth episode back in the fall, is coming back to Chance Harbor! Of course, he's not quite the same bad boy with the heart of gold who we mourned last year. Death by drowning, apparently, can change a guy.

"We are thrilled to have Nick back, but he's not the same person as he was before," executive producer Andrew Miller tells us. "The Circle is stunned, but those closest to Nick, his brother Jake and girlfriend Melissa, find themselves on opposite sides as they struggle with how to deal with his unnatural return."

Given how well we've gotten to know Jake ( Chris Zylka) since Nick's death, we can't wait to see how these two interact as brothers, and what Nick's return means for Jake's place in the Circle.

When Nick died, fans of L.J. Smith's book series on which the show is based were shocked -- and, in large part, pretty displeased. Who knew the writers had this up their sleeves?

Drop us a line in the comments below and let us know your thoughts on this shocking twist, and be sure to tune in to "Secret Circle" Thursday night at 9 p.m. EST.
