Bonnie became a powerful witch in ‘The Vampire Diaries’, but what influence would she have on its spin-off ‘Legacies’? Read on to find out.
Two years ago, when ‘The Vampire Diaries’ (TVD) concluded, fans were left wanting more. And that’s when its spin-off show ‘Legacies’ was released on Amazon Prime narrating the tale of our favourite Mystic Falls with the next generation of Damon, Elena, and Caroline in a whole new avatar.
- How Bonnie’s return to Mystic Falls might affect the Salvatore School?
- Will Enzo be back as well?
- Is Kai secretly in love with Bonnie?
- When will ‘Legacies’ Season 3 be released?
Fans found solace in the many traces of TVD in ‘Legacies’. For example, Salvatore mansion has been turned into Salvatore School for the young and gifted supernatural teenagers.
Also, mentions of many original TVD characters in the spin-off can be heard, and one of them is Bonnie Bennett. Last but not the least, Kai— the infamous villain who won the fans’ hearts when he first appeared in TVD in season 6.
Though ‘Legacies’ has been renewed for the third season, there are mysteries around Bonnie’s appearance to the show. Here are our theories.
Did Kai really die? What would Bonnie’s return to Mystic Falls mean?
Well, we saw Bonnie, the powerful Bennett witch, in the ending of TVD, who recreated the prison world with the help of Caroline’s twins, Josie and Lizzie, and her Bennett blood, and trapped Kai. But, in season 2, we saw that Kai finally escaped the prison world.
In the season finale, “You can’t save them all”, he dies via decapitation by Alaric Saltzman, who wanted to take revenge of his wife Jo’s (also Kai’s sister) death. Just like that. No grand fight. No hunt. No climactic scenes. Even in Kai’s own word, the death was ‘anti-climatic’.
Kai, after terrorizing Mystic Falls for 20 episodes in TVD and successfully escaping the prison world, dies so simply—it is just plain unbelievable for the fans. Keeping aside the fact that Kai has been working for the Necromancer, who is working with the main villain of the series, Malivore, Kai’s anti-climatic death leads fans to theorize that it is nothing but a trap to bring Bonnie back to the Mystic Falls—because we all know that if there is anyone Bonnie hates the most, it’s Kai. And, in this supernatural world, death doesn’t matter, anything can happen here.
If Kai really returns in Season 3, we might finally witness the real climax and drama we have been waiting for—an explosive conflict between Kai and Bonnie.
Will Enzo be back as well?
We certainly hope so. The great love story of Lorenzo AKA Enzo and Bonnie didn’t see a happily ever after in TVD. He was killed by Caroline’s husband Stefan. But anything can happen in this supernatural world. Although Kat Graham, who plays Bonnie, is unsure about returning to this character, actor Michael Malarkey is enthusiastic about playing Enzo again if presented with a chance.
While promoting ‘Project Blue Book’ Season 2, reminiscing his time in the TVD, he told ET, “This show has put me on the map. I hadn’t worked in the States until I’d done this show. It has given me an extraordinary platform that will shape my future”. He added, “I think Enzo has been through so many shifts and changes. It’s been an excited character to play. I think my business with Enzo isn’t done yet”.
However, actress Kat Graham, during her summer TCA press tour in 2018, said, “I have spent eight years playing this character [Bonnie]. But I don’t feel like reprising a character that took almost 10 years of my life. I’m very grateful and I spent eight years playing this character, but I’m not interested anymore”.
That was two years ago. Time can change people’s mind, we never know. We do want a positive closure to Enzo and Bonnie’s love story, don’t we?
Is Kai secretly in love with Bonnie?
Out of all characters, if anyone has the most experience in how to handle Kai and his cruel betrayals and games, it is Bonnie. And strangely, Kai seemed to like Bonnie in his twisted way and admired her for her intelligence.
But, that didn’t stop him from trying to kill Bonnie. Now that Kai is dead, what would that mean for Bonnie? Will a new type of love story unfold? We might get our answers in ‘Legacies’ Season 3.
When will ‘Legacies’ Season 3 be released?
Although there isn’t any official announcement or comment on the release date of season 3, we can expect the new season to broadcast sometime in October 2020 like the previous two seasons.
