The Vampire Diaries Season 8 will not air on The CW network for quite some time. However, there are already details on what fans can expect. One has to do with Kat Graham’s character, Bonnie Bennett. Will viewers see this TVD star going through more emotional trauma? Julie Plec revealed what she hopes happens with Bonnie in Season 8.
Warning: The Vampire Diaries Season 8 spoilers are ahead.
On the Season 7 finale of The Vampire Diaries, Bonnie was saved. However, in a bizarre and terrifying twist, Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) ended up having his mind taken over by a sinister creature. He was not the only TVD character to be possessed, though. Enzo (Michael Malarkey) also was taken over by the monster in the Vault.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the last thing viewers saw was Damon and Enzo hanging bodies upside down in a warehouse. On the news, it was reported that more than 60 people had vanished. Bonnie, along with Caroline Forbes (Candice King) and Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) were trying to track their vampire friends. As Hall of Fame magazine noted, the exact nature of the creature will not be revealed until Season 8.
Needless to say, Bonnie will be going through a lot in Season 8 of The Vampire Diaries. Not only has she lost her magic, but Bonnie has also lost two people she cared about. Damon was her best friend, and Enzo was her lover. How will she handle losing so much and will Bonnie feel guilty about Damon and Enzo’s situation?
“I don’t think she should feel guilt. All these predicaments—the circumstance is so out of her control, and she did everything that she could to fight it, so I don’t want to see her wallowing in any kind of guilt,” Julie Plec told E! News. “I do, however, think she is in a terrible emotional place, because two of the people she loves most in the world are in a bad spot, and she doesn’t have the equipment to fix them or to help them. It’s going to be tough for her to get through the next chapter.”
Bonnie has been through so much on The Vampire Diaries that fans are hoping she doesn’t have to go through any more pain. However, Damon and Enzo being taken over by the monster is going to have an effect on her.
As for other TVD Season 8 spoilers, Stefan and Caroline, known to fans as “Steroline,” will be together. It was revealed that the couple will get a few moments of happiness before the next obstacle comes along. For those hoping Caroline and Klaus would reunite, Candice King said there is no chance of that happening.
“They weren’t even together! I have not seen Joseph [Morgan] in so long,” Candice King told TV Line regarding the chance of “Klaroline” happening. “Everyone else has worked with him, and all we’ve done is a phone call. It’s just hilarious in the social media world. I think it’s going to be more interesting for them to never be in the same room. It would never work, ever.”
It was recently announced that both Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder plan on leaving The Vampire Diaries after Season 8. Even though it was stated that the next season will be the last, The CW president hinted it may not be the end. Could fans be looking at Season 9 of TVD? Viewers will have to wait to find out.
What do you think will happen with Bonnie Bennett in The Vampire Diaries Season 8? How will she deal with Damon and Enzo’s predicament? What exactly is this creature and can the possessed vampires be saved? Or will this be how Ian Somerhalder exits TVD?
