On last week’s awesome episode of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, we saw Vicki morph into a vampire. So how does she fare in her new incarnation? Well, this behind-the-scenes photo—taken from the upcoming Halloween-themed episode airing on Oct. 29—serves as a little peek.

In this shot, Vicki (Kayla Ewell) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) are at Mystic Falls High’s Halloween bash. Elena’s channeling her inner nurse, and yes, Vicki is looking rather vamp-ish here, but The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec assures that “it’s just a costume” at this point—no one else knows yet about her true transformation into a blood-sucker. “Elena and Stefan’s whole goal,” she continues, “is to make sure that nobody else knows what’s happened to her.”

But it’s not that simple, of course—and the nature of Halloween doesn’t help. “The school does an awesome haunted house Halloween party, where the parking lot is decorated and the whole interior hallway of the school is this cool, creepy haunted house,” Plec tells EW. “And all the action of the episode culminates there when you’ve got people in vampire costumes running around. You’ve got monsters and demons and, as everything with Vicki comes to a head, as she fights off her urges to feed, we’re in this haunted house and we’re at this Halloween party, and the s— hits the fan, as they say.”

In essence, actually being a vampire and being dressed as vampire, might be too much for Vicki, even though she looks rather pleased in this particular photo. “It’s being in such extreme sensory overload that has an impact on her,” Plec adds.

So, Vampire Dairies-watching PopWatchers, how do you feel about Vicki as a vamp? Do you think she can control herself in what seems to be this out-of-control Halloween bash? Does she have the self control to hold herself back from feeding?
