Is Bonnie a goner? Is Caroline becoming an orphan? Scope out the potential victims & share your predictions.
Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) giant arms aren’t the only surprise guests coming to Mystic Falls on the Dec. 13 winter finale of The Vampire Diaries — we’re also getting a visit from our old buddy Death! Someone’s biting the big one this week, and thanks to EW.com, we can narrow down the list of potential victims to six.
>> Bonnie (Kat Graham): If I’m being honest, there’s usually one point every season where I genuinely think Bonnie could die. Besides the fact that she’s barely been seen all season, she has no idea her powers are being manipulated by the evil Professor Shane (Dave Alpay). I’m hoping she sticks around, though, because the very idea of “Evil Bonnie” leaves me tickled.
>> Liz Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre): Mystic Falls’ fearless sheriff is always putting herself in harm’s way, which means there’s always a good chance she could — pun intended — bite the bullet. Plus, this show is all about turning its characters into orphans, and Caroline (Candice Accola) is already halfway there!
>> Carol Lockwood (Susan Walters): Having a werewolf for a son has always made Carol a target in Mystic Falls, but now that Tyler (Michael Trevino) is plotting to take down Klaus (Joseph Morgan) once and for all, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Original uses Tyler’s mom to send a message to all potential rebel hybrids.
EW.com includes Jeremy, Matt (Zach Roerig) and Tyler on its list of potential victims, but I think it’s safe to cross those three off the list. Michael has tweeted about working on future episodes, Jeremy seems too integral to the central story line, and Matt — in my opinion — will always be “dying” but will never actually die.
Personally, I think it’s a 50/50 toss-up beween Mrs. Lockwood and Sheriff Forbes.
Like my grandmother always says, I’ll “eat my hat” if I’m wrong — which I hope is an old-timey saying, and not reflective of my grandmother’s literal taste for hats.
