It’s never good when veins start to run black with blood. (We learned that from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) But Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 1, “Growing Pains” was a different animal entirely. Bonnie (Kat Graham) pushed the limits with the spirits — first while trying to help Elena (Nina Dobrev) come back from vampirism and then by putting Klaus (Joseph Morgan) back in his body. The second time, the dark magic seemed to strike back.
Bonnie’s Grams (Jasmine Guy) appeared to the temporarily dead witch, warning her against messing with such spells. In order to save Tyler (Michael Trevino) from Klaus’s claws, Bonnie defied her Grams and bowed to the OV’s wishes. But using that dark magic had consequences. “You made your choice; now they’re taking it out on me,” Grams cried as her veins protruded grotesquely. “What’d I do,” Bonnie sobs once her grandmother disappears.
So, what do you think will happen to Bonnie now? Has she been infected by the dark stuff? Have the spirits cut her off? Is the witch destined to follow in Willow’s path?
