Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Is Bonnie Headed to the Other Side?
As the Anchor, Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) is intrinsically connected to the Other Side. Though we mostly see her hanging with people on this side of the veil on The Vampire Diaries, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a responsibility to the people in supernatural purgatory. With the Other Side set for destruction, how far will Bonnie go to protect it and its inhabitants?
According to TV Guide, whatever the Travelers have planned doesn’t just mean the destruction of the Other Side, it means the destruction of ALL magic. With stakes like this at play, it sounds like Bonnie might go to great lengths to help those in danger. The news outlet teased that “perhaps Bonnie is headed to a new world — and she won’t be alone.” Does this mean Bonnie might be faced with a hard choice: stay in Mystic Falls with her loved one and let those on the Other Side die forever or leave her loved ones behind in the hopes of saving those supernatural souls who depend on her? Man, that would be a pickle.
It certainly sounds like this new chapter of Bonnie’s life — and the Other Side’s existence — might be happening. According to Paul Wesley: "[The finale] definitely establishes new parameters in the environment we'll be shooting in Season 6. They reset things in a way, and the writers have the ability to now change the circumstances and locations of where the show takes place." Is this new environment further exploration of the Other Side? Bonnie has always had a bit of a savior complex. (Not to mention the unfortunate habit of finding herself in a position in which only she can save the day.) This arguably might be the greatest sacrifice she has ever made.
