Vampire Diaries Recap: Bonnie & Hyde
Fortunately, that disturbing dismemberment was merely a dream sequence, one of several Bonnie experienced as she struggled to fight Rayna’s curse on Friday’s Vampire Diaries. Caroline and Enzo each gave it their best shot, entering Bonnie’s brain to locate the curse’s off switch, but neither achieved much success.
For better or worse, it was Damon who eventually woke Bonnie from her reluctant slumber by attempting to convince her to give up and let Elena come back. (I know that sentence was complicated, but what isn’t on this show?) Little did Damon expect, his plan worked out too well — there’s a first time for everything, I guess — and he replaced Caroline as Bonnie’s No. 1 target.
What transpired couldn’t have been more bittersweet: Yes, we got to watch Damon deliver a beautifully heartfelt speech to Bonnie (“I believe in you, and I love you the same way Elena loved you. If you kill me right now, it’s not your fault. I did this to us. But, please, forgive me), but it came at the expense of Damon nearly being staked to death. Were it not for Deputy Sergeant Sheriff Donovan’s quick-thinking, and even quicker trigger finger, Stefan’s brooding brother might not have lived to see next week’s finale.
Of course, it’s anyone’s guess what the aforementioned finale has in store for Mystic Fall’s finest, especially with Damon and Enzo planning to re-open the Armory.
