It was more than a little surprising to see Bonnie (Kat Graham) save Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in The Vampire Diaries Season 3 finale. Of course, she had pretty good reasons, right? If she hadn’t performed her witchy woo on Klaus’s body, then Alaric’s (Matt Davis) Original staking would’ve been pretty tragic.

Of course, Bonnie wasn’t able to go blabbing the secret to everyone in Mystic Falls, but in Season 4, her friends are going to learn what the witch did. The good news? They aren’t going to be mad. In an interview with The VRO, executive producer Julie Plec pointed out that Bon-Bon is pretty much a hero. “I mean, Bonnie basically effectively saved Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter, and the heavens in one fell swoop,” says Plec.

Caroline (Candice Accola) might need a minute to process the repercussions of Bonnie’s spell, Plec acknowledges. The blonde vamp is convinced Tyler (Michael Trevino) is dead, and she spent what she thinks were his last moments with her most hated Original. Yet, if Bonnie hasn’t pulled the switcheroo, all the vampires we know and love would be dead. “They should throw her a parade,” says Plec.

Let’s hope Caroline remembers that while she’s gargling and rinsing because she made out with Klaus in disguise.
