Vampire Diaries Season 8 Video: Bonnie Joins the Fight to Save Damon and Enzo

A new, slightly longer trailer for The Vampire Diaries‘ final season has arrived — and this one’s chock-full of Vitamin B(onnie)!

The video, released by The CW on Monday, finds Stefan leading Bonnie on a search through the woods, before she formally declares, “I’m in.” Elsewhere, Damon and Enzo continue to raise hell, while Stefan and Caroline go at it like there’s no tomorrow.

During a recent chat with executive producer Julie Plec, TVLine learned that Bonnie will have a “pretty unlucky run of trying to get her magic back” at the top of Season 8. In fact, “she’s a bit at the point of giving up.”

But given that this isn’t Bonnie’s first time at the magic-free rodeo, I have a feeling the Bennett witch will figure out a way to secure her powers before the series ends. (Unless, of course, the loss of her magic allows for Elena’s early return. #Loophole!)

Speaking of Elena, CW president Mark Pedowitz recently confirmed that “there are discussions going on” to get Nina Dobrev back for at least the final episode. “We’d love to have Nina back. She was great for The CW. She was integral for The Vampire Diaries.”

Hit PLAY on the (mostly) new trailer above, then drop a comment with your hopes for TVD‘s final season.

    So how many innocent people will be killed by Damon this season? These characters have killed and killed innocent people again and again and some how think that they are still the good guys. I see Bomnie still is getting the shaft.

      Wow it is nice to know that even though the show is ending the fan wars never do first off since they are vampires there really isn’t an end game or a true love here. Stefan thought Elana was his true love and Caroline referred to tyler as her’s several times so they seem to change true love often (personally i always wanted steoline back in season 1 but once they put them together they were completely forced and boring and that has nothing to do with klaus or klaroline at all) from my POV it doesn’t seem like the show had much faith in that pairing JP said she envisioned that since season 1 or 2 but it took her 6 seasons when everyone was gone for her to do them which makes me think she had zero faith in it.
      Since it is the last season she really isn’t going to care about pairings unless it will help her ratings all that doesn’t matter but i think she plans to give both pairings what they want for starters she has already said that she is going to move TVD cast over to TO next season and she is going to use that as a selling point for the network. We also know that IS,KG and PW are done once TVD is over which is why it is cancelled and the only character that would generate enough fans will be candies so i have very little doubt CK will move over to TO i am sure we will hear about it once TVD ends.
      As for this season i think the first part of the season will be heavy steoline with them happy and dates ete ete but i don’t see it lasting to the end there has been several hints that something happens to tear them apart maybe the stress of what happening or some new girl that enters that has set her sights on stefan or stefan’s inability to put caroline first whatever it is the writing for steoline is definitely on the wall and by the end of the season i see them done for good. I am kinda thinking they may kill the salvatore’s off at the end.
      That doesn’t mean klaroline is a go i think JP is smart enough to bring caroline on for other reasons other then klaus i do think she will play the will they won’t they card for as long as she can but eventually i think klaroline will happen just not in TVD if klaus is in any part of TVD finale it would have to be a FF scene since at point klaus is in a wall and when TVD ends it will be two years behind TO so i think when we see some of the MFG in NOLA they would have two years to get over whatever happens in the end but that is just my opinion based on what i have seen and heard.

    They’ll troll Bonnie, Kat, and her fans to the very end. I’m glad TVD is finally ending. Set all these actors free.

  5. Zac says:

    Bonnie looks so hot…I’m glad they finally put her in a promo. smh

  6. luvi says:

    Steroline all the way there is no other like them true love at it’s finest……..klaroline is dead and will never be revived..

    • Billie says:

      steroline all the way to death, yes! Can’t wait for them to buried and gone. Any other ship is better than sterosnooze.

    • Hallie says:

      There is no such thing as a dead ship on this show unless all the actors are gone so never say never do you really think they put that phone call in the crossover for nothing or have caroline go track down after how many seasons of never even mentioning them they were planting the seeds for when they need them they have no desire to let the fans forget about klaroline
      I had high hopes for steoline and i wanted them back in the beging but it never happened and now they are forced and boring but i don’t see them lasting i think they are the beginning of the end and come on there is no true love on this show both stefan and caroline have referred to other people as true love people fall in and out of love all the time and add on they live forever there is no such thing in there world.
      As for klaroline if that happens it will be a long time from now and not on TVD problaly on the originals no way JP doesn’t use that to her advantage now that the vampire diaries is done and she no longer needs caroline on TVD it is almost a given she will move her over. There is no way she won’t try and get the klaroline fans or the caroline fans to watch TO do you really think they killed cami off for no reason pls.

  7. Bob Wood says:

    We already Know they are trying to get Nina back, what’s there to discuss, she made a promise to return, she needs to keep it, its that simple, if she does not she will lose many fans perhaps even work.

    • Jen says:

      If she doesn’t wanna do it they’ll blame scheduling conflicts and use the fact she did 1 line of ADR in LA last season as proof she totes WANTED to come back bc she’s sooooo grateful to TVD and the fans but soooo sadly was tooooo busy. Most of the fanbase would buy it bc they’d want to and the remainder would find a way to make her refusal Nikki and Ian’s fault. She wouldn’t lose anything by refusing tbh.

      • Syd says:

        LOL All of this. I’m hoping she doesn’t come back, tvd hasn’t been right since KW left in s3. I’m just watching the finale to see how much more Julie can screw this show up.

      • Mila says:

        Agree with you Jen. I’m with Nina about the Elena character, she only liked Elena in the earlier seasons and her fav character was Katherine. So if she came back I’d only want her to play Katherine. Elena grew to be such a weak character that’s why so many could care less if she came back. The only reason why shippers care if she comes back is for their ship obviously. Sad that a female lead was reduced to being a guys play thing.

    • Hallie says:

      First off we don’t know what the promise was all we have is JP word there was a promise and her not being able to return would not lose her any work that is ridiculous Nina came back for season 7 which means she is willing to come back so unless she has a conflict and can’t she probably will but it will more then likely only be a small scene with her waking up.

  8. Steff says:

    I’m glad they got a clue and Bonnie’s in the promo now. Happy to see they remembered that Stefan and Bonnie know each other. Bonnie’s face is mine when I think about s8.

  9. Vampie says:

    I agree with some here. Julie is trying to get Nina back for the finale. I mean how could not Nina be in the show finale, she was one of the main actors of it and had a super important role. I hope they also bring Jeremy and some of the former -still living- characters for the finale.

  10. Bonnie+StefanRememberEachOther says:

    I guess it’s nice they remembered Bonnie exists. KW has only been back for 5 seconds and we’re already getting Stefan-Bonnie scenes again. Imagine how different this show would’ve been if he’d stuck around after season 2.

  11. TVDFANATIC says:

    I feel as if Stefan and Bonnie never get one-on-one scenes together, the only thing they bond of is Caroline and Damon. I need more Stefan+Bonnie scenes!!

  12. Amy Hoang says:

    If i had to take a guess I’m guessing Sybil is human but with the privilege of living a long time and is not supernatural. Though i do wonder where people get she’s lived way longer than Silas time since Enzo’s father founded the Armory unless that meant the vault was already there before the building was built. Anyhoo my guess is she’s not the villain unless somehow she’s a conjoined twin since people is saying she has a sister. Would make a good twist. Good during days bad during nights. I mean by far we haven’t seem to see the vault and her during days only been during nights.

  13. Jackie says:

    I have been an avid TVD fan for seven seasons and I have got to say that the Steroline ship is sooo boring I could nap. The only love interest for Caroline that felt genuine was the Klaus struggle. There was actual chemistry and heat between them. The feels came through hardcore like the actors actually felt a little ache themselves. I really hope Caroline is transitioned to TO to bring her spunk to NOLA and to Klaus’s broken heart.
