I hate Julie Plec but you’ve got to admire her slick..ness. I mean lets examine for a moment all of the major complaints Bonnie fans have had during the duration of the show and all the way they’ve been “solved” with this “twist” in the finale:
1.) Bonnie doesn’t get enough screen time! Well now that Bonnie is a ghost the only logical character that can see her is Jeremy. This means that Bonnie will likely get the same amount of screen time and be in about the same amount of episodes (maybe less) and no one can really complain because she’s a ghost! She’s a ghost and other than her trying to make things work with Jeremy there is no real reason to give her a major arc or character development. This actually kills 2 birds with one stone because Jeremy can get just as little screen time as Bonnie seeing as his main objective will be her in season 5.
2.) Bonnie is a plot device. Not anymore because ta da! Bonnie is no longer a part of the plot. See what happened there? I’m sure that there will be loop hole after loop hole to get around the need for another witch, and who knows maybe in season 5 in a twist no one saw coming April Young discovers that she’s been a witch THE WHOLE TIME.
3.) Bonnie never gets to do anything “interesting.” Um, have you seen Being Human? Like the most interesting character on that show is the ghost girl and Bonnie is following right in her footsteps! Of course she won’t be as well written, and she’ll be totally derivative in the worst ways, but we’ve seen the ghost arc done in an interesting way so that solves that.
4.) Bonnie is still a freaking Virgin! Well..Her main goal in season 5 will be to change that. Maybe she will and maybe she won’t, but we’ve at least acknowledged that she should!
5.) Bonnie and Jeremy had no closure. Well we can acknowledge, once again, that a lot needs to be said, but instead of saying ANY of those things we’ll brush it off and give you a kiss! I mean yeah we gave Delena their millionth speech saying the same damn thing: Damon’s not good enough for elena, he’ll never change not even for her, he loves her and he’s sorry, Damon is a bad person but Elena loves him anyway- I mean jessh we’ve heard that speech a million times! But we needed it again in the finale so instead of Jeremy saying all those things that needed to be said, we’ll just acknowledge that it needs to be said and move on. Smooth move.
Whatever. I know Bonnie’s role will be even smaller in season 5 than it’s ever been and I also know that Julie has effectively cut off any legitimate reason we have for wanting a dead character to get more development. It won’t be any better or worse than it’s been for the past 4 years even with the incredible chance they have here of making this storyline interesting! If this were any other character I would be genuinely excited about seeing them try to navigate life and love as a ghost, but since it’s Bonnie Bennett, it won’t be anywhere near as interesting as it could or should be.
What TVD finale should have been :
The scooby gang + the others : Bonnie are you dead?

I love Jeremy and I love Beremy, but please don’t tell me that Bonnie’s whole purpose for season 5 will be to screw her ex boyfriend. I will side-eye so hard and I am a HUGE Beremy fan…
They make better friends than Bonnie and Elena IMO.
Those poor angels. Stefan & Bonnie are true heroes of the show. They both deserve so much better.
I would suggest these two have comfort sex, but the minute they do, Damon will start sniffing after Bonnie; you know he likes his girls with the scent of Stefan on them…it’s canon.
