Now that Shane is dead and Silas is masquerading as the manipulative professor, Bonnie has been scaring us more than usual. But, is The Vampire Diaries resident witch really willing to go all Willow and bring back every evil supernatural creature just to reanimate the small handful of good ones?!
“Well, she could. She’s at a fork int the road, and that is definitely one of the prongs in the road,” says executive producer Julie Plec. “Definitely, we haven’t seen the height of intensity of Bonnie’s storyline yet. This Shane/Silas person has an enormous amount of control over Bonnie. Shane as a human, Professor Shane, with no supernatural abilities whatsoever, was able to get such a strong hold on Bonnie that she came to believe she couldn’t control her own magic without him. Now that you add a supernatural component to that, it becomes really extreme and really severe.”
“Because we were the first people cast — myself, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin — it’s easy to assume that it’ll be a love triangle with Haley and the two brothers, but it’s something so utterly different,” Morgan says, adding, “That would be a cheap shot to have a carbon copy of The Vampire Diaries, which [the spin-off] really isn’t.”
Elena will do just about anything to find the cure, and that includes going to first base with [spoiler].
