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.

@whateva and Fruit Salad, no I definitively do give credit to some of the other cast members like Paul who was amazing this season, Nina does a great job as Katherine, Matt Davis was great as Klaus in s2 and then Evilric, but it terms of consistency, Daniel and Joseph always deliver a great performance whereas as the others sort of are good in one episode and then just average in the next...Look, take it as I just think that they have more to offer :)

@Amie I agree that Daniel and Joseph are among the best actors in the show, but you've got to give some credit to the others. Nina was an amazing Katherine, Paul breaks my heart, and Matt Davis has had so many faces, vengeful husband, friendly alcoholic, Klaus!Alaric, Evil!Alaric, I'm gonna watch Cult just for him. That being said, the others aren't terrible - they're just not as good. Ian's eyes makes me want to strangle something.

@ amie I agree that it Joseph and Daniel who are talented but I was thinking in terms of who from the first season cast and based that Paul has the best quality of work. For the females Sara Canning was the most talented which is why it sucks how underused Jenna was.
Also, yes Elena lost Jenna but her ass clearly was not upset as her and Jeremy got over it by the next day and were having a picnic and movie in the town square, so for me Elena's reactions to lost don't hold weight. And Bonnie was starting to care for her mom who was only there to help Bonnie out, Elena hated both John and Isobel when they died and still was allow to blubber about them for two seconds.

what the hell are you talking about all 3 girls have gone through lose how can u say bonnie has gone through more and no one cared for her she lost her mom big deal she didnt even know her and she didnt even really lose her not like caroline losing her dad who she acturally loved or elena with her parents and aunt jenna anyways i do think that even if other shows like buffy went to that dark place with willow it made her character grow i think it would be really hard for bonnie not to be tempted with the dark side after everything it would be interesting to see how dark she will go before the people that care for her can help her even ian character lol tring to help her you know he cares and get over it the fact that its not like the book they have said tons of times they have taken it their own way no reason getting mad about it not being exactly like the book

Amie

The biggest sin of TVD has been making Elena a boring 'nice' girl, when they could have given her the spunk of the Elena in the books. THIS so much! Thats why I don't believe in the "love triangle" on this show, now the books - that was the real deal!And not only that, the whole dynamic of the show is different too because of what the main character represents, which leads to people not enjoying the main plot and not having any interest in DES.
