The Vampire DiariesBonnie (Kat Graham) may be dead, but that doesn’t mean she’s done fighting evil in Mystic Falls. In the Season 5 premiere, Silas killed Bonnie’s father (aka the mayor) in front of her ghost eyes, and she could do nothing to stop him. Kat talked to The Hollywood Reporter about Bonnie’s mission moving forward. (Hint: Silas better watch his immortal back.)

"You can become weak by something or you can become empowered by something and she says, 'Whatever Silas wants, we can't let him have it,'" Kat said. "She's turning this around on Silas. Bonnie is a character who isn't easily weakened by circumstances and she's somebody who probably will want to avenge her father."

We think it’s good that Bonnie finally has a project. It’s been pretty depressing to watch the ghost witch struggle to deal with her own death. Will this new mission perhaps score Bonnie a bit of non-Jeremy character interaction? Maybe! Kat teased that she will have scene with Jesse. How exactly will Ghost Bonnie interact with the college guy who has the hots for Caroline? We’re not sure, but we’re dying to find — as long as it doesn’t actually include Jesse dying. He seems so nice.

The moral of the story, though: Bonnie is still a force to be reckoned with — even from the “Other Side.” Kat said, "I don't want people to lose hope in Bonnie because they think that she's not useful. She's dead but she's not gone … There's still some interesting things for her to work out, while on the other side."

How might Bonnie go about fighting Silas, and how will she interact with currently-alive Jesse? Share your theories in the comments below!
