Vampire Diaries Sneak Peek: Season 5, Episode 16 — Bonnie Tests Liv’s Power (VIDEO)

We haven’t seen much of newbie witch Liv (Penelope Mitchell) so far on this season of The Vampire Diaries — in fact, she only randomly turned up in a college class just a few weeks ago. We already know that she’s thirsty for Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), but from the looks of this sneak peek of Season 5, Episode 16 (“While You Were Sleeping”), she’s getting on Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) last nerve.

In the clip, we get to see a bitter Bonnie interact with up-and-coming witch Liv. Bon-Bon is thumbing through a book of spells (a lot of good that will do her) while Liv is freaking out over the witchy things she can put on her résumé, talking up how she locked a vampire in a dorm room with a nifty invisible spell.

The two witches are just hanging out in an empty restaurant, with spring break to blame. Bonnie decides to get passive aggressive and test Liv’s powers. She spreads out a line of powder on the counter and says, “Set it on fire. Just a simple fire spell.” Cue up the Latin!

After about five unsuccessful tries, Bonnie speaks up. “That’s weird,” she says. “I guess your résumé still needs a little padding.”

Harsh, Bonnie! Don’t scare your pupil away. Jealousy doesn’t look good on you, girl. After all, at least she’s performed magic this season…

What do you think will happen between Bonnie and Liv? Why aren’t Liv’s powers working? Hit the comments and speculate!

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
