I doubt the writers will risk the ire of the Delena shippers at this point by hooking Bonnie to Damon in any way that is not entirely platonic. But I kind of wish they would. As far as I’m concerned the sire bond and the Damon-as-Dexter plot are both far more damaging to what Delena means to me than Damon having feelings for somebody else - in the right context, of course. So… they may as well go for it?
They won’t though and I’m fine with that too. As much as it would be nice to shake things up I also wouldn’t enjoy seeing a guy come between Elena and Bonnie at this point - nor would I enjoy seeing Bonnie graciously bow out of the first damn plotline she gets let into. So perhaps it’s best that the writers keep things platonic between her and Damon.
But it has to happen - something has to happen between them. You don’t die and go who knows the hell where together and not bond.
There has always been great potential there for Bonnie to influence Damon. One of the most interesting things about her to him, I would imagine, is that she has had this incredible power for so long and has not been corrupted by it. I think in the context of how hard he struggles to be good when it’s so easy to be bad, he would be kind of intrigued by that. Elena may be compassionate but she isn’t exactly moral the way Bonnie is.
Besides, they are going to need each other right now. Wherever they are they are experiencing loss the same as the people they’ve left behind. When I think about how that sense of loss/relief/fear/comfort caused them to have that magic little hug on the island in season 4 I know there is going to be more to come in season 6.
Just watched it and I’ve gotta say I did not enjoy it. I’m going to try not to prejudge because it’s rarely what writers do as opposed to how they do it that matters.
However. I couldn’t help being smacked in the face by the fact that this one time Bella Swan did things that nearly killed her so she could hallucinate her sparkly smack of a boyfriend.
And I worry.
If the trailer had focused a little more on her accessing both Damon and Bonnie in this way as opposed to Damon only I might worry a little less. So here’s hoping the trailer is just skewing Elena’s grief to appeal to the shippers and things will feel more balanced in-show.

WELL at first we were freaking out but then we googled her costar and then we were freaking out in a different way so. Trying to reserve judgement and not judge books by their naked covers.
