Kat Graham Q&A: Welcome to The Other Side

at . Comments

It really is true, Vampire Diaries fans: Bonnie is dead.

The Season 4 finale revelation was not a fake-out, Kat Graham says in a new interview. Bonnie truly has taken a trip to The Other Side.

"The show starts where it left off," the actress tells The Hollywood Reporter of The Vampire Diaries Season 5, adding with emphasis: "Where the only person that can see her is Jeremy because he can see dead people."

Bonnie Up Close

Expect to see an unusual, tight bond between Bonnie and Jeremy due to the former's state, considering she'll be cut off from everyone else in Mystic Falls.

"She loves her friends and family and she can't connect to them, and it creates an intimacy relying on one person as your connection to the one thing that matters the most to you," Graham teases. "It's a really beautiful thing to see. She only has him at this point."

We can also expect the series to take us somewhere new this fall, somewhere that has only been discussed in the past: The Other Side.

"That's something new for the fans. They'll be able to see that side that hasn't been explored yet," Graham says.

The Vampire Diaries Season 5 kicks off on Thursday, October 3 and Graham adds that she truly has no idea if Bonnie will ever be resurrected.

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
