Sorry, Jeremy, but Bonnie is getting a love interest in season 7! Kat Graham revealed in an all-new interview that Bonnie’s new man is someone ‘everyone knows and loves.’ Get all the spoilery scoop, and make your predictions now!
Could this be the season of Bamon?! Big changes are ahead on The Vampire Diaries in season 7. Bonnie Bennett is going to have a new man in her life, and he’s going to be a familiar face. Is it Damon? Matt? Enzo? Kat Graham is spilling all the details about the “crazy” new season.
“It really surprised me who they ended up putting Bonnie with, but I was super stoked,” Kat told our sister site TVLine. “It’s someone that everyone knows and loves, so it’s super fun.”
Bonnie’s sort-of mystery man will be revealed in the fifth episode of the seventh season after a flash-forward. For those of you who are hoping Bonnie’s boy toy will be Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig), you’re going to be out of luck.

“Matt’s a very nice guy, but I don’t know if the Bonnie that’s finally back — or the Bonnie that’s been hanging out with Damon Salvatore — is anything like the sweet Bonnie from Seasons 2 or 3 who would even be good for him,” Kat continued. “She gets involved in some crazy stuff, and even some dark stuff, this season. But I love that Matt is so beautifully human, and I like that they’ve always kept him human… even though Bonnie does something to him early on in the season that’s a little creepy and could go terribly awry. Other than that, they have a great relationship.”
Okay, so this leaves Enzo (Michael Malarkey), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Alaric (Matt Davis). While there are people out there who ship Bamon, we have a feeling Bonnie’s not going to be breaking girl code with Elena (Nina Dobrev) — at least this season.
So we’re down to Enzo and Alaric. Honestly, we would totally be down for an Alaric and Bonnie romance because that would be hot, but everyone Alaric’s been with has died. So Bonnie will likely be steering clear. And then there’s Enzo. He’s the guy you love to hate. He’s super sexy and keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. Let’s face it — Bonnie and Enzo (dubbed #Benzo) could have a pretty epic romance.
The Vampire Diaries season 7 premieres Oct. 8 on The CW.
