The Choice, or the problematic treatment of Stefan Salvatore
I realize that at this point, talking about the TVD season finale and the countless things that went wrong with it would be a bit repetitive.
To be sure, the episode had some good parts, too. I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy some aspects of it that were handled well, namely, Matt and Rebekah’s adventures, the Klaroline resolution and the Stefan/Silas subplot.
But the bad outweighed the good by a landslide.
For a while, I thought the bitter taste in my mouth was left by Bonnie Bennett’s rushed and underwhelming departure. I thought my vitriol was caused only by the disregard shown to her character.
Then, slowly, I realized why I was still angry.
dammit this tag is giving me hope
and i refuse to go through that again
cuz i know i’m setting myself up for disappointment
even if kat graham is gonna be a regular in season 5, you just know they’re gonna screw it up somehow
last year they kept telling us bonnie is going on a different journey
now the whole “we’ll get to see her more in her own life”
notice a trend?
i can’t take any of these spoilers seriously
they’re super ambiguous bullshit
for example, i read damon’s living with jeremy now, but you know what? i’m not expecting any bamon interaction because we’ve had foreshadowing all year and we got nothing
i’d like to think damon and jeremy might find a way to bring her back
but i feel so jaded that i’d rather she stayed dead than for her to go back to being the sacrificial lamb
idk, i’ll keep checking the bonnie bennett and bamon tags for development, but i won’t be tuning in for season 5
3. Bonnie will still factor in to the storylines. Jeremy didn’t exactly get a free ride back to the land of the living. Bonnie sacrificed herself in order to bring him back for Elena, and now she’s trapped beyond the veil — invisible to everyone, except for Jeremy.
It’s certainly a tragic loss, but don’t worry, Bonnie fans. Kat Graham will still be a big part of the show. “Here’s what I’ll say about Bonnie: I haven’t personally seen ‘Being Human,’ but I do know that they have a ghost character that operates pretty successfully on that show,” Julie says. “This is not the last we’ve seen of Bonnie. If anything, she will be right there in the middle of story next season, just with a few new complications.”
i can’t do it
i can’t sum up the sheer anger and disappointment i feel
no words or gif can do that
honestly, just let bonnie rest in peace
i swear, she would be better off
making her cling to jeremy, the boy who will go on with his life and eventually let her go
making her visible only to him
that’s not just stupid writing
that is downright cruel
but even crueller is saying that “she will be right there in the middle” next season
because that means exactly what we’d all been dreading
she will come in from time to time and give jeremy some advice on some spell or some witchy stuff no one else understands
and that will be her fucking job
i am done
i. am. done.
oh good i can finally walk away from this show.
i was expecting something like that to happen between stefan and silas.
this could have been pretty interesting.
except, oh wait, it wasn’t done to develop stefan or silas or show a new side to either of them.
nope, he’s trapped underwater and silas is identical.
so, this was clearly written by a delena fanfic writer.
get stefan out of the way, get bonnie killed and have elena and damon suck faces all summer.
terrific job, tvd
the only thing i’m gonna follow is how your ratings drop
Death Can Wait, I Need to Graduate: After her shocking death in last week’s episode, Bonnie the ghost is on a mission in the finale, to bring the veil back up…even if it means crossing over to the other side for good. “It’s a bittersweet journey for her and she has to prepare to make that sacrifice knowing that it will be the thing that separates her from her friends forever,” Plec says. “But in the midst of it all there’s graduation. [Laughs.] And there’s her friends together and she’s going to make damn sure she doesn’t miss that!
You cannot be fucking serious.
She has to prepare to make that sacrifice knowing that it will be the thing that separates her from her friends forever?!
Bonnie is spending this episode preparing for a sacrifice.
That’s what we have to look forward to.
For fuck’s sake, she’s been doing that since season 2.
Has she ever really taken a break? Has she?
Oh, she won’t miss graduation.
That’ll definitely make up for every other damn episode where she was relegated to deus ex machina.
If Julie isn’t trolling again, this means that once she brings the veil back up, she’ll be gone.
And unless Damon Salvatore ends up on the other side with her, struggling to get her back, season 5 will be a no-show for me.
in fact, I’ll just say TVD got cancelled after too much stupid.
about that second webclip
Bonnie still thinks of Elena as “her best friend”?
Someone should let her know Elena doesn’t give a rat’s ass about her right now.
If anyone should get that title, it’s Caroline.
And I hate that, since Katherine threatened to kill Elena, Bonnie’s in “saving the doppelganger” mode yet again.
I mean, Jesus, she’s literally died and she’s still more concerned about Elena?!
What are they gonna do, make her die twice just so she can sacrifice herself again?
I really, really hope that won’t be Bonnie’s sole purpose in this finale.
Cuz if that’s the case, heads will roll.
about that sneak peek (4x23)
so unless I’m getting this wrong, Bonnie hasn’t told Caroline, or anyone, about being dead.
I’m sure Caroline would’ve had a bigger reaction on the phone, otherwise.
my question is, how long is she gonna keep up the act?
I mean someone’s gonna figure it out, sooner or later.
and who is going to discover the truth?
who is gonna find her?
something isn’t right here
so this is what’s written in the summary for the finale: “Bonnie’s plan leads to the closing of the veil.”
that would mean that all the ghosts go back to…not roaming the Earth, including Jeremy and her.
So, then, how the fuck is she going to college with the girls?
cuz last time I checked, it takes a special something to see ghosts and interact with them.
Last season, Jeremy and Matt were the only ones who could see them. Or am I missing something here?
There was a rumour earlier last month that one ghost would be resurrected for good.
And even though these articles claim the season will end with Bonnie being dead, I tend to be suspicious. I don’t think she’ll be staying dead.
If she closes the veil, she’s coming back. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it cuz I’m still in denial.
I’ll be in my bunk, reading Bamon fanfiction and living in my tiny “i-cant-deal-with-this-right-now” bubble
nothing left to do
