If Bonnie's PTSD was legit
In my Bonnie 1994 trauma post, I explained why I thought Bonnie was given PTSD, because Plec hates Bonkai.
Bonnie has been hurt physically and emotionally multiple times, but it had to be Kai who gave her PTSD. Of course it had to be someone who only cares for Bonnie and puts her first….
She made it clear she would rather be isolated in her own part of the world, ALL ALONE than have Kai for company, yet she somehow gets angry at Kai for leaving her alone?
That’s like telling someone you don’t want a glass of juice and then getting angry at them for not pouring you a glass of juice.
Let’s address all of Bonnie’s symptoms:
Flashbacks of Kai hurting her, but no flashbacks of Damon, Enzo, Elena, Katherine, Klaus, probably more hurting her.
Anxiety at seeing Kai’s face at the rave, but no anxiety over seeing the faces of all the people who have hurt her before they became her friends, with exceptions for those who still remain her enemies.
Now so we see flashbacks, anxiety attacks, and her breaking apart in front of Damon.
But because Damon needs his mom back, those symptoms conveniently disappear so Bonnie can work with Kai to help Damon and company get Lily back.
It doesn’t work that way. If you wanted to go the Bonnie Kai PTSD route, then you need to keep it consistent.
Bonnie’s PTSD symptoms should have made the idea of being near Kai difficult for her, in which you would have had to come up with another way to get Lily out of 1903.
But it was just convenient to temporarily get rid of Bonnie’s symptoms, am I right?
