According to the Inquistr, Chris Wood is joining Supergirl this upcoming season! Wood played the resident bad boy turned heretic turned decapitated hunk, Kai, on The Vampire Diaries. TVD‘s executive producer Julie Plec mentioned the writers have been brainstorming ways for Kai’s return to Mystic Falls. I’m not sure if Wood being cast in Supergirl will be an issue, but let’s stay positive. We all lowkey want Kai back. Even if he was a tad psychotic.
Wood’s Supergirl character has not yet been revealed. However, he is slated to be a series regular. Wood could potentially still reprise his role as Kai. A few scenes here and there or a part of an episode is all we’re asking for. It’s even on my Christmas wishlist.
Kai entered the world of The Vampire Diaries when he crashed Damon and Bonnie’s BFF prison world grocery bonding experience. Since then he’s been a lovable pain in everyone’s arse.
Now, let’s talk possible Kai return theories. There’s not much leeway with his death so, I think flashbacks and Alaric are the key. Ric will probably be researching Jo’s family history for the twins. He needs to help his kids control their power and explain why they’re so special. Also, The Armory might have files on the Gemini Coven.
TVD loves diaries which isn’t a shocker. Alaric could find an old diary and flashback to Jo and Kai growing up. I’m assuming they had at least a few good times. Sure, Kai murdered his family (twice), but he had a rough childhood.
Another way he could return is through home videos. It’s cheesy, I know. Ric will want his children to know their mother and what better way than with hilarious home videos? Imagine Kai following Jo around blowing bubbles in her face. If anyone at The Vampire Diaries writing room needs help with ideas, I can be of service.
Even if there is no Kai reprisal, Wood will still be on our TVs thanks to Supergirl. The superhero drama is moving to The CW this Fall. Supergirl will be joining the ranks of Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. It’s basically a DC palooza.
