Unhappy Bonnie Bennett!
God! A very sad episode. Can Bonnie ever be happy?
At this point, I don’t think so: TVD has vowed to make Bonnie the saddest character in all of TV land: whenever it appears she’s close to happiness, something terrible comes along to rip it away, leaving her reeling in pain as she’s still expected to sacrifice everything for her friends. (Do you remember all her many sacrifices over the years, most notably the ones of season 4 and 5 finales.)
Though it makes for a compelling story, it’s very sad: Bon-bon is one of the most loved characters on The Vampire Diaries, she deserves some happiness.
TVD’s eighth and final season has really upped its game in story-telling since it resumed the second half of the season; episode eleven continued on the stride of this roller-coaster of awesomeness.
Cade, the devil, is in town, and everyone’s beginning to feel his heat. He set Stefan free, and put him on an assignment. He later revealed to Damon that he gave his brother the same options as he did him – Kill one hundred guilty strangers, or kill the woman your brother loves. Unlike Damon who’s humanity caused him to choose sanely, Stefan instantly opts to kill Elena, who’s body is timely in the possession of Bonnie and Enzo in a far away land, because according to him, Elena has always been coming between them, and killing her will cause Damon to finally give up on him.
Matt as usual is always complaining about the effect the choices the supernaturals make, affects the humans. (I suspect before the series finale, Matt will be involuntarily turned to a Vampire, and he’ll refuse to complete the transition process. Talk about dying for your belief. Ha ha!)
Now, this is where things get interesting.
Stefan arrived the house Bonnie bought with her Dad’s money, and rips Enzo’s heart from the back, in one of TVD’s most heartbreaking scene in all its eight years.
Bonnie is devastated. She knowingly injected Stefan with the cure she just recovered from Elena’s body (which was supposed to be used in defeating Cade.)
Stefan immediately fell to the floor, and Bonnie ran to cry by Enzo’s lifeless, desiccated body. She lets out a psychic scream.
This psychic scream connects in story-telling to what was said at the start of the season, that Witches and Sirens operate on frequencies that are almost same: that’s why the Siren’s tuning-fork was able to affect Bonnie when struck.
– I think, Stefan’s blood might be drained to get hold of the cure, if Cade is to be defeated. Unless there is a weapon existing that we do not know of yet.
– This might be it for Bonnie. After this, I do not think she can take anymore. The psychic scream also fits the explanation that was given as the origin of Cade’s power. Could Bonnie and Cade go head to head with the same magic variation?
– As a human, how is Stefan supposed to complete his deal with Cade, and how is Caroline supposed to live a happy life with him, if he survives the ripple effects of his recent actions?
And finally, who is worse? Damon for killing Tyler, or Stefan, for killing Enzo. Comment below.
Rinzy’s rating: I give it a 4/5
