‘Vampire Diaries’ Season 7 Spoilers: Will Bonnie Bennett Get a New Romance?
This breath of fresh air for our favorite Mystic Falls witch will come in the form of a new romance (sorry, Jeremy Gilbert!), who is teased as someone new yet familiar. It sounds like he’s from the troubled Virginian hamlet and that he’s a good guy so maybe, and we’re going out on a limb here, it’s Matt Donovan?!
All the speculation aside, co-creator Julie Plec tells TVLine this relationship “will make a lot of sense” even though it comes “out of nowhere” when the show jumps ahead three years in one of the two futuristic storylines. That would make our Matt theory true!
We’ve longed for Matt to find love for quite some time now and it sounds like it’ll finally happen in Season 7. Julie previously teased the pitch for Matt’s love interest as not knowing if she’ll be good or bad yet and though we don’t think this exactly applies to Bonnie, as she’s always been on the side of the heros, maybe she’ll switch things up this season.
Another reason we (unfortunately) don’t think Bonnie will end up with Matt is that we know she’ll be “back on the bourbon wagon” with Damon and Alaric Saltzman as their “uninvited chaperone.” Perhaps she’ll find love while out on the town with them?
Either way, it’s about time Bonnie — and Matt — got a substantial love interest that doesn’t bite the dust or leave town right when things are heating up. Seriously, this show can be a real buzz kill sometimes!
The Vampire Diaries Season 7 premieres Thursday, October 8, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
