Lately it seems as if Bonnie (Kat Graham) only has eyes for her spirit tea-pusher, Professor Shane (David Alpay). But in a sneak peek for Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 9, “O Come All Ye Faithful,” the witch and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) have a tiny moment. 

In the video, Jeremy is chopping wood in his tank top. Because, of course. We don’t know why his deprogrammers (aka, Bonnie and Shane) let the hunter around wood, because it’s just handing him the tools for making vampire-killing stakes. When Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) pull up to the GIlbert cabin, where Jeremy’s “treatment” is taking place,” the Five’s newest member gets all clenched and hostile.

“They shouldn’t be here,” Jeremy tells Bonnie. She explains that Elena and Damon are there to help. “Do you trust me?” she asks, as she slips the ax out of his hand. He says he does, and she leads him inside.

It’s almost like the old days... except Shane is waiting in the cabin. We know Jeremy is barely hanging on to scraps of his old life, but maybe Bonnie, the one who brought him back from the dead, will keep Jeremy from going over the edge?
