The Vampire Diaries season 3 ended with Bonnie doing a spell to save her friends, and that meant putting Klaus in Tyler’s body. The end of the season itself saw Bonnie doing some powerful magic. Could that lead to her becoming the next evil of the show, becoming a bit reminiscent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Willow?
Vampire Diaries Season 4 Spoilers
Julie Plec talked to E! Online about what could be coming up for Bonnie: “To be truthful, a lot of debates go on in our [writer’s] room about whether to take Bonnie to the dark side and the biggest thing that prevents us from doing that is not wanting to feel like we’re following Willow’s journey.” While they would have to tread very carefully to prevent that if they so chose to follow that path, they could find a way to make sure that an evil Bonnie is not at all like an evil Willow.
Bonnie does seem to be getting to the point where she could choose to go evil or not, and according to Plec, “She’s tapped into some darker stuff…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.” So for now, it seems like it’s something that could happen. It at least seems like something they’re going to need to address at some point in The Vampire Diaries season 4. While there are some things that can be ignored and pushed into the background, Bonnie doing darker magic is not one of them.
While everyone is going to be focused on Elena’s transition, what Bonnie’s doing with magic could easily be pushed aside. If they do turn to her to try to figure out how to make Elena human again, could that be something that puts her over the edge? It is shaky ground, and it’s possible that everyone could miss what’s going on with Bonnie until it’s too late. On the other hand, Bonnie could see what the darker magic is doing to herself and stop it before it’s too late, if the writers so choose to not follow the Willow route for her magic.
