‘ leading players — including a fan-favorite couple — and it all begins on Thursday’s midseason finale (The CW, 8/7c).
Midseason Finale: Bonnie’s Blue Christmas, Stefan’s Big Reveal & More
The first big shift happens between Stefan and Caroline, who bond over an unfortunate bit of news.
“Their friendship has been through a lot this season, and [Stefan] decides that not only does Caroline need to learn something she doesn’t want to learn, but that he’s the one who should tell her the news,” executive producer Caroline Dries tells TVLine. “What we’ll come to see in the next few episodes is that their relationship will be shaped by this.”
But because miracles often emerge from tragedies, Dries adds that Stefan will “earn Caroline back as a friend and their relationship will become a little more dynamic and interesting and layered.”
Post Mortem: Inside Rebekah’s Midseason Finale Twist
Also undergoing a major change over the next few episode is Bonnie, who Dries promises will “become more of a badass” in 2015, though she’ll have to endure a pretty blue Christmas first.
“Bonnie, who’s one of the strongest women on our show, will prove that she’s not going to be down in the dumps,” Dries explains. “She tries to make the best of things, and it will help shape her into the character she’s going to become starting in the 2015 episodes, where she’s going to harden a little bit.”
fans: What bad news do you think Stefan has for Caroline? Is “badass” Bonnie a
thing? We’ll have more even more scoop Thursday morning, but for now, drop a comment with your thoughts below.
Please no romantic Steroline! Let them just be friends!
I feel like how are you friends with someone after you have confessed your feelings to them. It will always be weird. We can also let the Bonnie and Damon friendship stay!!
I know how you feel. I loved their friendship but thats ruined now,
Why can’t they give Caroline a storyline that makes her into a badass. Every SL she has had revolves a guy. I’am tired of that crap she deserves better than that.
I loved caroline until s4. They made her too nosy.
lt stinks they can’t give Caroline a non-relationship story
I am glad there are others out there that do not want Steroline! I too prefer them was a friends and only friends.
The bad news for Caroline is pretty obviously going to be that they can’t bring Bonnie back and that she’s stuck on the other side.
i for one am VERY HAPPY about the direction they have taken Bonnie this season. She’s not pining over Jeremy. She’s making things happen! She’s gotten so much of her agency back and she has been a way more dynamic character again.
Boo Steroline.. It’s too late for me to start caring about Bonnie now..
So someone (mostly Liz) have to die for Steroline to happen? Wow the writers have reached a new low
Who is Liz? And I didn’t read about anyone dying.
It was already spoiled that someone will die and my guess is that its either Tyler or Liz (Caroline’s mom) and this death will be used to push for Steroline
Oh her mom. Haha. I mean in reality she has survived a lot longer than I would have thought possible. I mean who knows maybe it will be someone else.
Yay! Stefan and Caroline need to be together! Everyone else who I know who watches this show agrees-these two need to happen.
Looking forward to bad ass Bonnie in 2015. Her story arc this season has been fantastic! She deserves some love and happiness without consequences for once.
No love! Let one woman on this show not have a story focused on love.
I hope Bonnie get back together with Jeremy or find a bad ass witch and Damon and Elena get back together and get marriage and thing hope to Damon
Yes honoring must be done! how else can the delena diaries continue!
I imagine the big thing he has to tell her is that her Mom is dead, leading her to drop her walls and let him comfort her as a friend, which could lead to her wanting comfort and love and to feel alive which might lead to Stefan saying he has feelings for her or kissing her. So overall like this article says they will become friends again, he will have helped her through a horrible time, and the kiss or admission of feelings will why its described as: “their relationship will become a little more dynamic and interesting and layered”.
As for Bonnie, i imagine her being badass and not blue is that she comes back, Jeremy tells her he thought she was dead and so in grief he banged ever woman in a 300 mile radius who was attractive…she then confirms they are over, and instead of a new love interest instantly popping up for her character, they make her resolve to be strong, to be independent and to be a badass.
Barf @ Steroline. Stop forcing this ship.
LMAO. Totally agree too. The writers will do anything, including kill another character to make this train wreck of a romance between Stefan and Caroline happen. Thank God DVR has a fast forward function. Sorry “shippers”…just not jumping on that weird, chemistry-less bandwagon with all y’all.
I think the only people who actually don’t like stefan and caroline are the people who read sites like this. And Twitter and real life has a bigger following.
Are you serious, that is absolutely idiotic thing to even think. Some people don’t like them because they don’t fit and they are better as friends, that Stefan has never had any romantic feelings for her and now all of a sudden.
The fact that you are equating Twitter to real life???. You can make anything trend with a group of girls at a sleepover with electronic devises. People tweet the same thing over and over and you think that is real life. Get over yourself.
Hahaha way to get all worked up. I wasn’t saying Twitter is real life considering I don’t even have Twitter, real life as in all the people I talk to who watch it and don’t ever read this articles happen to like them.
Twitter isn´t a good indicator of anything really
Steroline sounds like fun.I mean we’ve always known one of them would have a thing for the other.its just sad Stefan is being a jerk.I hope bonnie comes back out.ALIVE of course.can’t wait to see what happens to Delena.lol.
Steroline’s really won me over this season. LOL, you know a ship is good when it works up people passionate enough to actively hate on it, ha ha. Seriously though, favorite romantic storyline on this show in YEARS.
I think its quite obvious theyre killing Caroline’s mom. What would work better though is if they used it to bring her and Tyler back together, since Klaus murdered his mother.
And I think we’ll see Bonnie being less selfless and more selfish now. Me thinks she’ll kick Jeremy to the curb and follow her heart to Damon and put that before her friendship with Elena. Also, i want to see her reveling in her magic again. She’s been so long without it.
I thought I would be sad that about Tyler with a new girl but I like Liv and him. And I got over that ship when he kept leaving her behind anyway. I think Stefan and Caroline are cute because they built up to it. Just like Damon and Elena. As far as Bonnie and Damon I wouldn’t buy it. She has always hated him and now they are in a friend’s spot. Plus I love Jeremy and her.
Bonnie has always been badass, and the writers still treat her like crap anyway.
Elena’s had the hardest life, Bonnie has been the most selfless, yet for reasons I don’t understand, Caroline seems to be the fan favourite? Cool.
With a potential romantic pairing between Stefan and Caroline and hopefully an exploration of a romantic relationship between Damon and Bonnie there won’t be any Salvatore men left for Elena to throw herself at. Which makes me wonder, which of these formentioned pairings Elena will try to break up in 2015.
Don’t they get it? There are not so many people who want steroline.. think that the stelena/klaroline/bamon fandom is way more bigger. Since the moment that steroline became a thing fans have been begging to keep them as friends.. But no do they ever listen? Hope bonnie becomes a lot more selfish maybe that wil draw her closer to damon.
I think it will draw her to him. Bonnie’s earned the right to be selfish, and NOBODY’S more selfish than Damon. That makes them very much compatible people.
There not supposed to listen to ur request. If they listened to idiotic fan request the show would be ruined. If you want it ur way so bad then u write a script and see if they air it how bout thet
The Sheriff dies as plot device to get those two together.
Badass Bonnie is there for 2 episodes then goes back to the background with no storyline, until she dies again in the finale.
I’m pissed that they are killing Liz off so Steroline can happen this is awful. I’m super happy about Badass Bonnie, she can start being her own woman and stop catering to the Gilbert family like their slave.
You know I am tired of people thinking it’s just to further Steroline. I mean really Liz has been close to death for years. And maybe they planned on killing her off all season anyway and it just happens that Stefan is there for Caroline, you know his friend.
I’ve got to say that I’ve been hoping for Liz to die for years. She’s not around enough to be a fully formed character, and her death could have been used to REALLY develop Caroline and add a new dimension to her character. I think it bothers people that EVERY time this spoiler is hinted at, it’s used to indicate that Stefan is going to use this tragedy to get with Caroline. They never tease anything about Caroline developing or changing or going dark etc. It’s ALWAYS about how this tragedy will serve the Steroline story. So yeah, they’re killing Caroline’s mother and making it all about her love life. Which is wrong and pretty disgusting.
Very excited for Bonnie to become a little more selfish and this season has been great for her! Her character should be front and center and not as a plot device!
Well, thanks for the heads up! No reason for me to watch TVD for the rest of the season.
If being badass gets Bonnie out of her hell in the premiere, then I’m all for it. Otherwise, I just hate the writers’ take on Bonnie as everyone has been stating a plot device. Is Jenna going to be in the flashback part of the episode, please say she is Andy!? I would think she is since it’s taking place in the first season is it not?
Yay for Bonnie, eww for steroline. Bonnie needs to start caring abour herself and not her “friends”.
Yes that’s how I feel about Steroline too. Reminds me of when they tried to pair
Rachel with Joey on Friends. Hopefully, I will feel differently depending on the writing. I just hate that I know Stefan will never love Caroline the way he did Elena. She was always second choice.
What the hell makes u think that. Ur obviously a stelena shipper
Yes!! Maybe Bonnie will FINALLY get the storylines she deserves…..
I really hope so, too. A big YES for Bonnie, the badass witch! She is the only female character that has evolved because of all her trials and tribulations! She and Damon have the best dynamic on the show!
No more sacrificing you and your entire family for those people Bonnie!! You show them!! And I really, really hope Steroline never happens.
Maybe Matt is goibg to die. On previews it shows him being tossed in that van, by Enzo, which causes me to eonder if Enzo turned Matt just to drive him into Mystic Falls.
Finally some Steroline movement!!! I never shipped them before this season because of how blind Caroline was about Stefan and how he was always so self-righteous and condescending toward her. They were tolerable as friends because they really do love each other but the dynamic was just really lopsided. This season Caroline has finally seen that he isn’t Mr. Perfect and she chose to put herself first in her own life and Stefan has decided to step down off his pedestal, so I actually want to see them as a couple. It’s time for both of them to have an adult relationship with a real foundation of love and respect.
For Bonnie, I hope if she makes it out of this alive, she comes back a true badass witch. If she doesn’t, I hope she gets killed off for good. Her repeatedly coming back to life sl’s have become boring and her constant witchcraft failures are ridiculous at this point. How can we take her seriously when compared to all the other witches we’ve seen on TVD and TO who actually ARE amazing and competent?
Please don’t do this. Friends are very important. And sometimes it doesn’t come out well in the end. Besides can’t mix oil and water. Or make mountains out of mole hills.
I love the dynamics of a growing romantic relationship between Caroline and Stefan. I’m very happy the TVD writers are going in this direction and away from the love triangle. As for Bonnie Bennett, she is the heroine of this show. It most certainly is not Elena Gilbert. I would love it if Damon realizes he has feelings for Bonnie that are deeper than friendship. As for Elena Gilbert, I hope the writers can make me like her again and “sorry … not sorry” I really do miss Katherine Pierce.
