A romantic relationship between Bonnie the witch and Damon the vampire shouldn't be ruled out, as actor Ian Someralder feels that things might get spicy once Bonnie is rescued from where Kai has her trapped.
Talks of a romance between Damon and Bonnie, the characters essayed by Somerhalder and Kat Graham respectively, gained traction shortly after the first few episodes of Season 6 aired, as fans were quick to note their sizzling on-screen chemistry.
"There's an extraordinarily thin line between love and hate," Somerhalder told TVLine. "Due to the fact that these two hated each other, and had so many connections … it only seemed appropriate that they would be given a chance, due to the dynamics of their relationship."
Where will that put Elena, who had to compel away memories of Damon from her mind when she thought he was dead? A section of fans want her to rekindle her romance with Stefan, especially now that she no longer feels the passionate love she once harboured for Damon.
A love triangle between Elena, Stefan and Caroline is also a possibility if Damon and Bonnie get together.
Meanwhile, the next episode will see Elena and Damon establishing a connection with Bonnie, and from the looks of it, Elena's attempts to rescue Bonnie might go haywire. A TVGuide spoiler suggests that Bonnie will have a breakdown in the coming episode, and bets are on Kai sabotaging Elena and Damon's attempts to rescue the witch to let himself out.
Here's the official synopsis of the episode titled "I Alone": "Damon (Ian Somerhalder) finds himself in hot water after he carries out a plan that requires Alaric's unwilling participation. When Elena (Nina Dobrev) shares some hopeful news with Jeremy about Bonnie, she is caught off guard by his reaction. Liv helps Damon and Elena with their plan to get Bonnie back, but when things take an unexpected turn, she's left with a difficult choice to make. Elsewhere, Matt takes matters into his own hands when Enzo's actions cross the line, and Kai's existence continues to be a dangerous threat."
