“You never know,” Julie teased about a possible Bamon hookup in Season 6, “but what we did want to do is we wanted to service the Bamon relationship from the books and at least give those two characters an opportunity — that we never thought we'd have frankly cause they never liked each other, and for good reason — to bond and get close and to be comrades. So it will start there, and it may never go any further — that's not the plan, but you never know."
In summary: it’s not “the plan” to have Bamon hookup, but it could happen. We really respect this answer because it is indicative of TVD’s willingness to change “the plan” if something is or isn’t working. This flexibility and self-awareness is what makes great shows that last, and is the reason why we are still excited about the upcoming season after a somewhat lackluster Season 5. TVD is so unpredictable, sometimes it even surprises the writers themselves!
