“… Because I’d rather let you down once then let you down for the rest of your life. And I hope it’s the happiest life because you, Bonnie Bennett, are an amazing woman, mediocre crossword player, and my best friend. With great love and respect, Damon.”
Seriously, is anyone actually surprised? Of course he died. I knew he would since S8 started. He was just some random-ass, irrelevant character that only got any significance paired up with Bonnie … and in a fucking flashblack episode at that. You think Bonenzo was going to get a happily ever after, written that way? Lol no.
If Enzo comes back in the finale? It just means Enzo died so Bonnie could be put through completely unnecessary grief for plot. It symbolizes hatred of her character. Bonenzo symbolizes hatred of her character. Everything on this show symbolizes hatred for her character and you are naïve to think otherwise.
You think Bamon’s going to happen now? Lol no. Because Damon belongs to the sacred Elena and Bonnie’s just meant to serve Elena. God forbid you pair her with a male lead or pair her with ANYONE. Canon ships (Bonenzo, Beremy) or potential ships (Bonkai, Bamon), JP fucks them all up because to her Bonnie ain’t good enough for ANYONE.
Bonnie never gets to be happy. JP is a racist, obsessed fangirl that goes out of her way to make sure she has the worst of everything. She was depowered for nearly all of S8 for no goddamn reason and gets it now conveniently when the plot demands it. Because Bonnie has never been a character for Plec. Bonnie is a plot device. A sacrificial lamb. If she dies for DE and reunites with Enzo in the afterlife or gets some fucked unrequited love for Damon and then dies for DE, I wouldn’t be surprised by any of this. I don’t care what bullshit we heard about Bonnie getting a “unpredictable happy ending”, knowing Plec, it’s going to be unsatisfactory.
Bonnie Bennett deserves everything. She deserves the world. She deserves it all and will get nothing because this is Plec’s world. Expect nothing else.
I find this absolutely disgusting that they had the nerve to tweet this because this tweet literally summarizes what they see Bonnie as, a WOC who constantly loses her life to protect her white counterparts.
Let me make this clear. Bonnie Bennett is not indentured to anyone, she has risked her life and put others before her too many times, and the fact that yall constantly make her lose everything confirms how you view women of color on this show.
The writers knew Nina was leaving TVD early season 6, if they really wanted to build Stelena to be endgame they could’ve done it when Elena got Alaric to compel her memories away and Damon was trapped in the prison world (while simultaneously building Bamon. 😒). So that interview where they said that Stelena could’ve been endgame but wasn’t because Nina left sounds like bullshit to me and I don’t believe it for a minute. Don’t blame the actress for your bad writing and planning.
How Elena and Stefan could possibly be endgame in the finale, aka my “sired soul” theory...
Elena in 4x01 spent her last dying breaths as a human to tell
Stefan that she loves him and how he is the best choice she ever made.
does one go from saying all of that and simply fall out of love so quick?
(Without having to say it was due to bad writing or fan servicing, because if I
was a DE fan I would be pretty pissed off at the way they brought them
together.) Be warned this is kinda long!
Well what if when Elena was transitioning into a vampire (during
the first few episodes of season 4), her human soul was slowly being replaced
by a new vampire one created by the sire bond and this new soul is basically a
reflection of the desires of the soul to whom she was sired to aka Damon. She
still appeared to be in love with Stefan the first few episodes but it also
seemed like her old self was slowly fading away along with her feelings, (basically
all her good qualities which made her who she was). What if the sired soul made
her more like Damon and obviously made her do Damon-like things? Because let’s face it Elena from season 4 on wards was a completely new character/person.
The reason why
this could have happened was because firstly Elena never wanted to be a vampire and also maybe and probably more likely because when she died
at the end of season 2 John gave Elena his soul, a soul that replaced Elena’s
so that when she woke up it would be as a human and not a vampire (as that was
what John had wanted). So when she died at the end of season 3, her soul which
John gave her didn’t want to accept the transition into a vampire hence a new vampire
sired soul was born, giving her basically new and all the annoying qualities
that Damon had.
This could explain how her feelings for Stefan never got
heightened, because deep down in Damon’s soul he didn’t want Elena to be in
love with Stefan. He wanted Elena to love him instead. Elena said she still
loved Stefan, but she was not actually in love with him. Wouldn’t that be basically
just how Damon feels about his own brother, right?
Otherwise it just wouldn’t
make sense from a story pov, not a shipper’s but a story pov how Elena just
kinda forgot this strong built relationship she had with Stefan.
Now here is my opinion on the only way I see Stelena possibly as endgame based
on all of this because I wouldn’t want the vampire Elena to get back with
Stefan, especially after all the shit she put him through (that would be so selfish and
Stefan deserves much better).
When Elena took the cure, she didn’t appear
to have any significant changes to her character she was just a human again right (although she did kinda flirt with Stefan at the wedding)? However Elena was only a human for a few days/weeks (few episodes, just like in the
beginning of season 4) before Kai cast the Sleeping Beauty type spell on her.
So what if after all these years while Elena was in that coffin (cause we have no idea what happened in her mind during all this time), her human soul slowly came back, the same soul which was very much in love with Stefan even after testing the waters with Damon (who I personally saw as a metaphor for temptation/being greedy)?
And when she wakes up the last thing she remembers clearly is telling Stefan that she chose him (whilst she was transitioning) but her memories of them as a couple as they were slowly breaking up are fuzzy/blurred because that wasn’t actually her.
Then Stefan realises that Elena 2.0 was never the girl he fell in love with but just a walking reminder of her and that his Elena from seasons 1-3 would never hurt him/break his heart like new vampire Elena did.
After this Stelena then have one of their epic reunion hugs and just stare at each other like they can’t believe they are in each others arms again and they finally kiss and slowly slip back into their old feelings/lives. Oh and Stefan takes the cure and is human again too.
And basically Damon all along had never been with Elena but has been in a weirdly twisted relationship with a version of himself essentially in the vessel/meat suit (had to use the spn references) of old Elena. It’s kinda disturbing but that’s kinda the only explanation I have for ‘who the hell was Damon dating then if it weren’t Elena?’. Plus his reaction could be funny!?
As for SC to not be a thing anymore, I hope Klaus comes back for Caroline and reminds her of this moment and boom no more sc wedding or a divorce.
But yeah that’s mainly my opinion/theory for a human Stelena endgame if I could write it! :)
I seriously can’t with DE endgame. This ship single-handledly ruined this show and Damon and Elena’s characters. I hate Delena more than I ship Bamon and that’s saying something. Like dear god let this relationship END in the finale please. If tvd has to go out with a dead Stefan, a shitty ending for Bonnie, AND a DE endgame …
