The Vampire Diaries' Bonnie Bennett is back from the dead! But it isn't without consequences.
Last season's finale saw the Bennett witch (Kat Graham) bring Jeremy Gilbert (Steven R. McQueen) back to life, but in the process, she lost her own. After keeping her death a secret for a few episodes, it finally came out, leading her friends on a mission to bring her back. A few spells, deaths and crazy doppelgangers later, Bonnie is back — but as the new anchor that binds the other side. As part of it, she must also feel the death of every supernatural being, which, of course, she has yet to tell those around her.
It ain't easy being Bonnie Bennett.
The Vampire Diaries' resident witch has gone through a lot in her life, which culminated in her death in the Season 4 finale. But while she seemed rather content with being on the other side, the death of her father and the realization that she's pretty much powerless has slapped Bonnie back to reality. So where does she go from here? And how long before the secret of her death is too much to handle? Kat Graham shares some teases for what's to come.
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 got off to a running start with a fast-paced premiere that set up Elena's upcoming internal struggle with Stefan's torturous summer. Meanwhile Damon strives to keep everything in Mystic Falls under control, Bonnie refuses to reveal her death and, most of all, Silas sets off on his incredibly villainous path of destruction while trying to track down Katherine and her now-cure-laced human blood.
Read on to find out what happens when the summer ends and the death, destruction and drama that was on hold picks up again.
