Katherine Pierce has gone to Hell — or at least The Vampire Diaries' version of the dark side — and she's not coming back.

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.
Paul Wesley has played several reincarnations of his Vampire Diaries character, from sensitive Stefan to Ripper Stefan and various shades in between. But at the start of Season 5 (Thursday, 8/7c, The CW), Wesley takes on his biggest challenge yet by playing two characters — a physically destroyed Stefan and his immortal and manipulative doppelganger Silas.

How long can Bonnie keep her death a secret?
On the Vampire Diaries season premiere, summer is over which means Bonnie (Kat Graham) will have to find a new excuse for not being back from traveling. But the former witch can't bear to tell her friends the sad news about her demise, which means she — and Jeremy (Steven McQueen) — plan to keep up the ruse. But will it be long before even Jeremy is tired of telling the lie?
A threesome! Swoon-worthy Silas! 5 teases from The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 premiere
One threesome, two bubble baths, a few deaths and a sly, yet surprisingly swoon-worthy, Silas? Judging back the craziness of the Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere, fans are in for one heck of a (sexy) season.
The show picks up with everyone well-aware that the carefree summer is coming to an end and the next chapter of their lives is about to begin. Confirming what Ian Somerhalder recently told us, Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) are nothing short of adorable (and horny!). Caroline (Candice Accola) is as Type-A as ever while preparing her dorm, Bonnie (Kat Graham) is still pretending that she's away for the summer so her friends don't have to deal with her death ...
If the newest villain on The Vampire Diaries seems a little familiar, it's because he's a lot like an early version of Damon Salvatore, Ian Somerhalder says.

"Silas doesn't give a sh--," Somerhalder says in the video interview below from TVGuide.com's visit to the show's Atlanta set. "He's like Damon in Season 1. [He thinks,] 'I am almighty, all-powerful, I will mess you up. This is what I want. I'm going to kill everything in the wake if you screw this up for me, but I'm going to toy with you a little bit.'"

Now that Elena has professed her love for Damon on the The Vampire Diaries, the big question is: How long before Damon messes it up?
"One of the big obstacles [for them], especially for Damon, is to make sure he doesn't f--- it up because he has a tendency to do that whether he means to or not," Nina Dobrev tells us in the video interview below from the show's Atlanta set. "He's going to try to be on his best behavior and Elena is going to embrace him, but she knows who he is and sometimes that comes to the surface and reminds her. But they'll try to figure it out because love prevails and they want their love to conquer all. They have gone through so much to get to where they are now. If they didn't keep fighting for it, it would be a shame."
