While siblings of TVD were having heart-to-hearts with each other (Elijah & Rebekah, Rebekah & Klaus, Damon & Stefan) at the end of “All My Children” episode, Bonnie had to go through another heartbreak.
Bonnie had to go through a lot since season one. In season one Bonnie found out that she had magical abilities and soon after that she lost Grams, the only person who could guide her in the twisted witchy-voodoo world. In season two she had to put up with the fact that her best friend (meaning Caroline) is a vampire, she cast a spell on herself to imitate her very own death and tried to take down the creepiest vampwolf of all times and then lost her connection to the dead witches’ powers. In season three she had a relationship drama with Jeremy, had to clean the ghost mess and had a dramatic storyline with her mom. Until she was turned into a vampire.
Bonnie literally was left with no family when Grams passed away (her dad can hardly be called family). She found her mother and then they could bond. Bonnie could have a hope for having a family (read: have a mom once in her life). But no, Abby was turned. Without discussion.
The most awful thing about it is that Damon was the one to turn Abby. Damon was the protector of Bennett lineage. Basically he had to make sure that Bennett line of witches lives on; that was his deal with Emily. But Emily broke this deal, she betrayed Damon, so basically Damon doesn’t owe her anymore. Anyway, Bennett line lives on (in the form of Bonnie). However, it does seem really inappropriate that Damon was the one to feed Abby his blood and snap her neck. I’m not making excuses for Damon here.
Another terrible thing here is that Abby had to be turned so that Elena could live. Abby was turned because of Elena even though this connection is sideway. It can parallel with 1x14 where Elena actually makes Bonnie and Sheila let Damon and Stefan out and the spell they used caused Sheila’s death. Elena was somewhat the main reason it happened. She insisted on letting Damon get Katherine and on letting the Salvatores out. So, basically Bonnie lost two family members she cared about because of her best friend even though Elena didn’t know this would happen to Abby.
Don’t hate on Bonnie for not letting Elena in. I can’t even imagine what she must be feeling like.
“Somehow she’s always the one who gets hurt.”
When Caroline said that, I thought “Yeah, right, but Elena always tries hard to keep Bonnie out of it, especially in this season”. This time Bonnie signed up for it all by herself (well, Stefan insisted but Elena had no part or voice here).
I just feel like the history will repeat itself. Bonnie will stick to Caroline and abandon Elena because Elena is the reason all of it is happening. So, it’s better for Bonnie to stay away from Elena. Again. If this happens, then I don’t really get their “friendship”. Bonnie is seriously damaged now but accusing Elena is not an option, really.
