The Vampire Diaries: Witch Way to Go with Bonnie?

by at . Comments

The residents of Mystic Falls have already had to deal with Alaric Saltzman going from heroic history teacher to evil supernatural slayer.

Will they soon need to brace themselves for another journey of a local favorite to the dark side?

Asked about storyline for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, executive producer Julie Plec told E! News last week that a lot of debate is raging over Bonnie's future on the show.

"She's tapped into some darker stuff," Plec said, referring to the spell Bonnie pulled off to bring Jeremy back to life. "I don't know which way we'll go with her in season four. Do you go down a road even though people did it really well, do you really want to do that? Or do you ignore what other people did and do it because it's right for the character? I'm interested to see where we land on that as writers."

Plec's concern, interestingly enough, stems from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and how that series dealt with the character of Willow.

Where do you think TVD should go with Bonnie? Ponder the possibilities, leave a comment and then weigh in on what actor should come on board as Bonnie's father.

Turn her evil, have us watch that in first two episodes, and then have Elena rip her heart out. :)

Its hilarious on just how much of this show could have been more enjoyable if Elena was closer to her book-version. Sadly writers decided to go bella-swan route and the result was a huge misogynistic mess. Their reasoning for NOT using that elena? "Oh we did not want a lead who is selfish and has real flaws so we made mary sue instead".

then turns his attention to our "heroine" Elena, intent to kill her for killing his daughter! Oooh lol! :)
sorry, that would require writers having actual balls in adding some gray into the characters. So far they have shown us that they will NEVER advance any plotlines and will tiptoe at the same place for years. While it is true that the actress that plays Bonnie, Kat Graham, isn't a regular Meryl Streep when it comes to acting, she is one of the most gorgeous cast on the set of TVD, apart from Ian Somerhalder and her acting has improved over the last three seasons.
sorry, but even in the mediocrity of acting that is TVD(the top being C.Accola) Kat Graham comes quite low.

@elena isn't that special - While it is true that the actress that plays Bonnie, Kat Graham, isn't a regular Meryl Streep when it comes to acting, she is one of the most gorgeous cast on the set of TVD, apart from Ian Somerhalder and her acting has improved over the last three seasons. On another note, the writers should adapt a little bit of the significance of the Bonnie character in the book and integrate it to the movie. The show is getting very boring because of Elena's constant meddlesome ways and fickle mindedness. Unfortunately, the writers can't do much because she seems to be always confused, even in the book. Her character is sometimes self-centered and then selfless, then she's onto Stefan later she's thinking about Damon. Same old, same old.

After Elena accidently kills Bonnie, Bonnies father could then appear as one real badass vampire hunter! He gets rid off all the originals in like two episodes (something the salvatores couldnt do in a full season!), then turns his attention to our "heroine" Elena, intent to kill her for killing his daughter! Oooh lol! :)

Bonnies a plot device. She should either leave town and never come back or get killed off. Kill her by having Elena be her first victim, she accidently kills Bonnie and has to cope with it.
Nah the writers wouldn't do something like that to their mary-sue because it requires character development. lol

hope the writer should stop killing her love once!make her some actions...

Best way for Bonnie is to die. She's not around that much and when she is, she's just a worthless Plot Device! C'mon you can't even give her a House for 2 seasons and her life revolves around this show's precious Mary Sue Cardboard.
This is SO true! Couldn't agree more. And if the writers don't dare to kill her off, they should at least let her leave town (forever). With Jeremy. That would be perfect! Yeah; I know. But a girl can be dreaming, right?! ;-)

To be honest I never liked bonnie, I can't stand the actress, and her 'story' isn't a story at all. underdeveloped and I have to agree she's a plot filler...a bad one at that! She's just there to make things happen, to fill in the crappy plot. I think they should turn her into a doppelganger, witch, vampire-werewolf, hybrid vampire hunter, ripper with a split personality who can tap into the spirit world and give a sub plot of a spirit world disaster, bring some of her ancestors back into town, as indestructible evil forces who are trying to take over the world, hook her up with oh so loyal stefan OR.....Simply kill the waste of space off and start again with a hotter, better actress (a black one, otherwise we won't have any black people on the show and that's not nice).

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
