Finally, Bonnie is with Elena and Jeremy at the Salvatore Boarding House. Jeremy is wondering why his mark isn't growing and Bonnie says that it will take time for Kol's line to die. Damon appears, free of his compulsion as Kol is killed and Stefan arrives with Silas' headstone. Moments later, Jeremy's mark grows, allowing everyone to see it.
In Into the Wild, Bonnie arrives at the island where Shane claims that the Cure is along with Stefan, Elena, Damon, Jeremy, and Rebekah. Bonnie takes pictures of Jeremy's tattoo which also tells the story of Silas and Qetsiyah, who was in love with him. Qetsiyah made Silas immortal and when she found out he made his lover immortal and not her, she freaked and killed his lover. Then she buried Silas and made the Cure for immortality, which she buried with Silas in hopes he would take it and die.
Bonnie comes to Shane and tells him that she doesn't see a spell in Jeremy's tattoos, after studying them. He tells her that he will help her access Expression once she needs it and that he needs her to stay in control.
That is when he tells Bonnie that his wife was a witch, who died trying to use Expression.
This angers Bonnie and she yells at him, "You taught me the same magic that killed your wife!" Shane says that the upside is that he knows the warning signs and can keep it from consuming her. Damon has entered Shane's tent at the point and states the obvious: "The downside is you turned her into a time bomb that only you can dismantle." Shane tells Damon that he knows once they find the Cure, he will try and kill him, but Bonnie has to keep him alive so that she can stay alive.
Sometime later, during the night, Jeremy is abducted by a strange man, leading Bonnie to do a locator spell to find him. She lights a fire and she follows its trail into the woods, the wind blowing around her, hearing voices as well. Bonnie later finds Shane, with Silas' headstone, which he stole earlier, and Jeremy bound a gagged. He introduces Bonnie to Massak and that if she tries to escape, he will ensure that she never find her way back. He says to the three, "So the gang's all here. Silas awaits."
In Down the Rabbit Hole, Bonnie, Jeremy and Shane arrive at the well where Shane claims Silas is. Massak claims that he will not go any farther and Shane gives him Silas's Headstone, which is not actually needed to open Silas' tomb, just to pay Massak with. They proceed their journey into the well where Bonnie promises Jeremy that she won't let Shane raise Silas and she will kill him if he tries to hurt anyone. Bonnie begins a spell which "vacuums" up Jeremy's Hunter's Mark (meanwhile, another hunter of the Five, Galen Vaughn, has his own tattoo disappear as well). She successfully opens up the passageway, also causing a cave in, which causes Shane to break his leg. When he asks Bonnie and Jeremy to help him, they refuse, and advance into the passageway.
Suddenly, Sheila Bennett appears and tells her granddaughter that they have to raise Silas and feed him so that she can be brought back. Jeremy realizes that it isn't her Grams at all and tells her that it isn't real; that it is Silas and he is getting inside her head. Later, the two find Silas, frozen in a vampire state. Bonnie says that in order to get the Cure, Silas has to be fed their blood, as it is in his grip. That is when Vaughn appears and stabs Bonnie, where she falls onto the cave floor.
Katherine Pierce suddenly arrives (disguised as Elena, who she attacked earlier) and saves Jeremy from Vaughn, who was about to kill him. "Elena" is actually revealed to be Katherine when she calls Jeremy a brat for insisting that she save Bonnie first before getting the Cure. Katherine slits Jeremy's wrist open and feeds him to Silas, who grabs Jeremy, giving Katherine an opening to grab the Cure, and with that, she takes off. Silas then snaps Jeremy's neck and Bonnie watches from the cavern floor, unable to do anything, as she is dying.
In Stand By Me, Bonnie awakens in the forest and realized that her wound has healed. Shane/Silas came up and told her that he found a few revival herbs nearby to heal her. Bonnie asked him how he is healed and came to know that it was Silas who fixed his broken leg. Shane mentioned about Jeremy's death, that he was there when Silas awoke and, in order to gain strength he needed to feed on Jeremy.
Bonnie grieved about his death and was angry at Shane, Bonnie overwhelmed by tears got uncontrolled power over Expression made the fire grow. Shane/Silas told that Silas can help her bring back Jeremy.
Shane even said that three massacre is needed in order to use her Expression and only 24 been completed,12 more to be killed. Bonnie, who couldn't think of killing 12 more innocent people ran away before she tripped and fell over Jeremy (A illusion created by Silas). Bonnie did the resurrecting spell but it was not real. She later made up her mind saying she will do it.
Bonnie came to know about the other side was purgatory for Supernaturals was created by Qetsiyah in order for Silas to take the Cure and die ending up in other side with her for all eternity. Bonnie told to Elena, Caroline, and Matt back in Mystic Falls that she needed to complete the Expression triangle in order to gain enough power. She mentioned about dropping the veil between this side and the Other Side, so all supernatural creatures have access and they can all see Jeremy, Alaric, Vicki and everyone that they ever lost.
Bonnie was dropped at her home by Matt who insisted she needed to take rest. When she was about to open the door Silas/Shane came asked if she told her friends and she said they are unwilling to help, he told her they are just afraid. She inquired to Shane/Silas if the 12 people died in Young Farm were humans and aren't supernaturals. Shane/Silas said their sacrifice was unnecessary and they found peace and moved on. Silas/Shane said to Bonnie that they are going to work together in this.
In Because the Night, It turns out that Bonnie is fully aware that Silas is hogging Shane's form, and he brainwashes her into attempting a massacre of 12 witches - the final sacrifice necessary to complete the all-important expression triangle. The head witch of the coven she tricks believes that Bonnie wants to be cleansed of expression, and the ceremony itself is pretty standard - flames and Bonnie's eyes creepily turning white. Stefan arrives just in time to warn the witches about Bonnie's true intentions, but to his horror the head witch prepares to slay Bonnie, fearing that after Silas's intervention she's too far gone to be saved. The witch took out a blade and prepared to stab Bonnie then, because if Silas has her she’s lost. Stefan tried to stop her, and she gave him a massive headache.
Klaus and Caroline appeared, and Klaus said they couldn’t stop the witch now because she’s linked to the others. Klaus is more than willing to let Bonnie die - but Caroline can't stand for that and rushes forward, stealing the head witch's dagger and turning it on her. Little does she know that Bonnie has already linked the coven, and Caroline can only stand back in horror as each witch slowly falls to the ground, dead. Caroline just murdered 12 people and completed the expression triangle - now all Silas needs is the cure.
When Bonnie wakes up, Stefan's surprised to discover that she remembers nothing since being in the cave, forcing him to tell her once again about Jeremy. Stefan attributed the memory loss to the witches’ work on her mind. Your heart sunk when it became clear that Stefan would have to tell her that Jeremy was dead.
In Pictures of You, Bonnie was visiting Jeremy's grave to say goodbye and something better than her last words to him, "We did it." Jeremy appeared and told her to wake up. She'd been dreaming and set the room on fire. Next, Bonnie was with Caroline telling her about her dreams of Jeremy/killing time while shopping for prom dresses. Caroline, Matt, and Bonnie are going together as friends. Elena and Rebekah showed up and Bonnie noticed that there was something different about Elena. At prom, Elena is mean to Bonnie telling her that she was a walking reminder of all the tragedy in her life.
Silas, in the form of Jeremy, shows up and says he needs to help Bonnie before she hurts herself. But Bonnie says Silas just wants to bring down the wall and release all the monsters. Bonnie warned the Salvatores and she was announced Prom Queen as Matt was announced Prom King.
After Bonnie and Matt took their yearbook photos, Rebekah warned Matt that Elena was up to something regarding Bonnie. She could have been a tad more specific, right? Strange. Elena followed Bonnie into a special beaded-off VIP section and prepared to bite her. But Bonnie worked her magic, bringing wind and smashing some lights. She ran out. Bonnie start car alarms in the parking lot and scream at Silas to get out of her head as he awkwardly shouted "Control! Control!" at her. Bonnie succeeded in getting Silas out of her mind, and then Elena swooped in and bit her. But Bonnie's neck healed and Elena projectile-vomited the blood back up. Bonnie rose and started making Elena's bones break. Damon and Stefan stopped her from killing Elena.
The episode's final moment brought us our first look at Silas' real face. Bonnie had sought him out. He was hiding in the dark because Qetsiyah had made sure no woman would love him if he wouldn't love her. She'd disfigured him.In She's Come Undone, Caroline was trying to call Bonnie, and finally she answered the phone. Caroline asked her if she could come over to help her will turning Elena's humanity back on, but Bonnie said she wasn't going to forgive her that quickly and told her she needed to study for the final exam. Bonnie hangs up as Katherine sits down across from her at the table and picks up a menu. Bonnie told her she needed her help by giving her Silas' tombstone. Bonnie wanted Katherine to help her but at first she refused, but then Bonnie told her that if she helped her she would give her what she always wanted, freedom. Bonnie didn't give her much details in case Silas got in her head and found out about them working together. Later, Silas kept attacking Caroline and told her that he wanted her to find Bonnie. He even threatened her that he would kill her mother, so Caroline called Elizabeth Forbes and told her to go home and lock the doors, and Caroline soon arrived home with her. They were in the living room trying to call Bonnie when she finally arrived. Caroline went to talk to her, and at first she didn't unlock the door since she was afraid that she was Silas. Then Liz walked in behind Caroline, but Bonnie quickly told her that that was not her mother. Bonnie opened the door with her magic and went in and Caroline went running to help her mother who was unconscius in the living room due to Silas attacking her. Silas told her that she was wrong thinking that she could hide from him, but Bonnie said that she wasn't. Silas told her that she better not betray him, and she said that she wouldn't, but told him not to hurt her friends. Silas ordered her to leave the house immediately, and she left, and Silas followed behind her.
Bonnie was later seen at the diner again talking to Katherine. She told her that if she helped her, she would talk to Qetsiyah to learn the spell she used to turn Silas truly immortal, and she would do it on her. Katherine told her that they had a deal.In The Walking Dead, Bonnie is sat in the forest with her legs crossed, when Katherine hears voices and starts to ask Bonnie why there here, Bonnie tells Katherine that if she wants to be truly immortal she needs to drop the veil and talk to Qetsiyah. Then Katherine asks why their in the forest, Bonnie points to her right and says "A few miles that way 12 Hybrids were killed at the Lockwood cellar, she then points to her left and says "A few miles that way 12 humans died at the young farm, then she says "and this is the site where 12 witches were killed". Bonnie explains to Katherine that there standing in the expression triangle and that she needs to channel all the energy from Silas' Tombstone, then she says "once that happens, I can drop the veil inside the three points and just long enough to get what i need." Then Katherine asks her "what exactualy is it that you need", Bonnie replies "Silas has done nothing but unleash hell on earth, now he wants to torment my friends he's evil and in 2,000 years only one person has been able to put him down"Katherine replies "Let me guess Qetsia" Bonnie explains that if she can contact her she can ask her how to do it, and then tells Katherine to 'hand' her the rock. Katherine then explains that she's not letting Bonnie flood Mystic Falls with dead supernatural creatures so that she can ask not one but two favors, and that shes's taking her business elsewhere. Then Katherine finds out that Bonnie has linked them and that their with eachother for the day because Bonnie doesn't want Silas getting into Katherines head and finding out she doesn't need a full moon to drop the veil.
Bonnie and Katherine are walking towards the Lockwood Cellar, and Katherine says to Bonnie that she'll be staying up on land rather than in the cellar, Bonnie says to Katherine "You obviously don't know how this works" and as Bonnie starts to walk down the stairs Katherine is forced to follow, as if an invisible force is pushing her against her will. Once in the cellar Katherine explains that she is a vampire and that she can kill her, Bonnie then says "Whatever happens to me happens to you, do you really think I want you here?" Bonnie then starts to use her magic and the weather goes all heptic, and the power goes out.
Then Bonnie and Katherine are at the Young Farm and Bonnie says "12 humans died here, they died in vein for Silas", then the lights go out at the farm, and Bonnie tells Katherine that she linked the final 'hotspot', It's time to drop the veil."Bonnie and Katherine are at the centre of the triangle, which is underneath the school. Bonnie tells Katherine that she is ready and that the stone contains the calcified blood of Qetsiyah, one of the strongest witches in the world.
While Bonnie has hold of the rock Qestiyah's blood starts to seep out, then Katherine asks Bonnie whats going on and Bonnie tells Katherine shes channeling the expression triangle. Then all the candles light and Bonnie says to Katherine, "It's done, the veil's down."
Katherine then tells Bonnie to hurry up, Bonnie tells Katherine that she can't reach out to Qetsiyah while Katherine is breaking her concentration every 5 seconds. Katherine then tells Bonnie that she can hear someone coming and that Bonnie needs to un link her while she stalls then, Bonnie says no so but Katherine asks for some slack which Bonnie gives. While Elena is torchering Katherine, its also hurting Bonnie until Caroline and Stefan come and Caroline tells Bonnie to unlink her. Caroline then asks is Bonnie alright and Bonnie replies "Yes, now that I unlinked her." Caroline then ask's what is she doing down here Bonnie then tells Caroline that she is waiting for Qetsiyah. Then Caroline tells Bonnie that she may be waiting a while. Then Caroline dissapears and Silas appears and tells Bonnie Qetsiayah isn't coming. Bonnie then says to Silas "But I saw Caroline...How? I thought you couldn't get inside my head." Silas then tells Bonnie that's what he wanted her to think and he could make her see whatever he wanted her to see. Then he asks Bonnie is he really a disfigured monster, Stefan then appears and says "Of course not, a monster is what I wanted you to see.", Stefan then disappears and Caroline appears and says "That's the beauty of all this, you have no idea who I am." Caroline disappears and Stefan appears again and says "Or what I look like. Then Silas appears and says "Or how deep I am inside your head." Stefan appears and says "You thought you were more powerful than me?" Caroline appears and says "I'm stronger than you can imagine, I defeated the hunters curse in minutes You thought that you could betray me? You can't I will always be one step ahead." Bonnie then tells Silas who is posing as Caroline to stay away from her, Silas says "Gladly after you finish the spell, then when the veil is dropped completely the I can take the cure and die, I just want to pass on Bonnie I'll even let you kill me, I'll be out of your life for good" Bonnie replies "But every dead creature will be roaming the earth" Silas says "well if you don't help me, I'll be roaming the earth" Bonnie replies " I was never going to drop the veil". Silas walking towards Bonnie says "I'm curious what was your plan, pow-pow with Qetsiyah, brainstorm ways to put me down , Qetsiyah's not coming she wants me on the other side with her for eternity" Silas then turns into Alaric and says "that sounds familiar, maybe Damon can convince you" "I won't let you" Bonnie says before Silas cuts her of mid-sentence by saying "You won't let me what?" Bonnie then starts to gasp for air as Silas says, "You feel that Bonnie, the air thinning barley enough to breath?"
Bonnie is grasping for air when her grams appears and says "Bonnie, this isn't real Bonnie, feel the air in your lungs break through" Bonnie interrupts her by saying "Silas." "Would Silas try to save your life, now breath child, there" Shelia says. Bonnie gets up to hug Shelia and says "I was so worried about you" Shelia replies by saying "I know, but I'm ok, I've been watching over you". "I messed up, I'm sorry" Bonnie says, "you can still stop Silas" Shelia says encouraging Bonnie, "I can't Qetsiyah was able to immobilize him so he couldn't feed and get into peoples heads, I can't do that I don't know how to do that I don't know how to put him down" Bonnie replied. Sheila tells her, "You can do that, expression is a manifestation of your will, you can do anything, I don't like it but sometimes there are no choices, but you are strong enough, you can do this".
Bonnie walks in on Damon strangling Silas who has taken on the form of Alaric. She says, "I may not be able to kill you but I will stop you." Then Bonnie starts to use magic and Silas starts to find it hard to move as Bonnie says "I will make the blood clot in your veins, I will make ever bone muscle and joint in your body turn to stone, you won't have power over us anymore." Silas starts to walk away but soon can't walk anymore and stops as Damon asks "What the hell is happening" Bonnie replies "He can't hide behind his mind control anymore he's becoming his true self." As Silas stops and turns to stone Damon asks, "Who might his true self be?" Bonnie replies "I guess we'll never know."
"We need to get rid of Silas' body", Bonnie says and Damon replies "Well there's a slight problem their Medusa, even though you turned him into stone, if he gets one more drop of blood hes back to his old mind tricks." Stefan replies "So, lets do what we were going to do to Klaus drop his body in the middle of the ocean."
Bonnie lets Elena and Jeremy know that she’ll give them some before she has to put the veil back. Inside the cave, Bonnie is placing candles around as her Grams tells her it is time to put the veil back up. Bonnie reveals that she will put the veil back up after she brings Jeremy back from the dead. Sheila tells Bonnie that Jeremy's death was the will of Nature. Sheila warns her that, "There is no magic in this world strong enough to challenge it." Bonnie tells her that she has every magic, the spirits, expression, and the "darkness". Bonnie then attempts to cast the spell as Sheila warned her to stop. Bonnie then collapsed to the ground. After a while, Bonnie came to and stood up. Sheila eventually touched her shoulder. "I'm sorry, Bonnie. The spell, it was just too much," she said. Bonnie turned to see her body was still on the ground. The episode ends with Bonnie's death.
Graduation finally arrives. We see Bonnie calling Caroline to tell her that she needed to wait until that night to have enough power to raise the veil again. Bonnie suggested they cancel graduation, but Caroline was having none of that. Bonnie wasn't ready to tell anyone that she was dead -- they'd been through so much, she said. Grams just told her to make sure she said her goodbyes before it was too late. When Bonnie went to school, Katherine popped up at the school demanding the immortality that Bonnie promised her, and threatened Elena's life. Bonnie was about to crush her skull but stopped when other students walked in the hallway and Katherine bolted.
Bonnie and Caroline were already there when Matt showed up. Then Elena and Stefan followed. Caroline couldn't believe they'd all made it. Bonnie teared up but still said nothing about her death. She didn't even tell her father, who presented them with their diplomas, the truth. She just thanked him -- for everything. When Bonnie sat down, Kol appeared in the seat behind her. Kol told Bonnie about his army of angry ghosts and no one noticed her sneaking off with him. Kol didn't want the veil to come back up -- he wanted it down so he could live on this side. She took him down to her body, and said that's what she wanted, too -- but you can't always get what you want. She trapped him in that room.It was time for the veil to go up, so Jeremy wrote Elena a letter before coming to look for Bonnie. He wanted to be with her when she sealed it. He eventually told her there was so much he wanted to say to her but nothing seemed right. She told him not to speak. Instead, they kissed. When the veil was up, Jeremy gasped for air. That's when Bonnie knew: The spell that had killed her had worked. He was alive. He was so happy, until he realized he couldn't feel her hands on his face. Then knew she was dead. She made him promise to tell Caroline and Elena that she was staying with her mother for summer. She told him she'd be okay -- she had Grams, who was there to walk off with her hand-in-hand, and the other witches.
Human/WitchAt the beginning of the seriess, Bonnie was an upbeat and positive person. However, as the series goes on, and Bonnie begins to suffer the losses of people close to her, (most notably her Grams and Jeremy) she begins to become a much more serious person. Throughout the series, Bonnie remains a strong person, who was loyal to her friends, even though there has been tensions between her friends. While Bonnie has become friends with Stefan, she remains barely cordially with Damon, though there have been implications that the two care for each other deep down. Bonnie's biggest defining trait, as well as her greatest weakness, is her loyalty to her friends. Multiple times throughout the series, Bonnie willingly taps into dark powers in order to save the people she cares for, despite knowing the consequences. She believes that it was her duty to help those close to her, despite whatever it may cost her, a trait that every single member of her family has warned her on at some point. Despite her strength in the face of loss, all of the tragic events that have happened to her and her friends has worn on her, most evident with Jeremy's death, where she was pushed to the point of agreeing to go through with a plan to destroy the veil between the realm of the living and the supernatural dead just to bring Jeremy back, despite the fact that doing so would also resurrecting every single supernatural creature that has died, however she was also arrogant, believing that she could take out, two very powerful immortal beings, like Klaus and Elijah, underestimate's what they both are capable of doing, even threatening her cousin Lucy, forgetting the fact, that Lucy is more powerful, and experience then she is.
Bonnie was a beautiful young woman with brown skin, olive green eyes, a heart-shaped face and black hair that has changed throughout the seasons (from wavy to straight). Her style was described as being gypsy chic with a bit of a hippie trend and dresses in a casual manner with nice tops and jeans, but on special occasions will dress up even more. She usually wears very little make up and likes accessories. She was approximately 5'2" (160 cm) and has a nice physique. She was also seen wearing necklaces, earrings, bracelets and trinkets sometimes.
Bonnie visited her grandma on the weekends. When Bonnie didn't know what was happening with her powers she went to her for help. Grams explained the history first and also taught her spells. When Bonnie and Elena were kidnapped, Grams got Stefan to save them both. Grams also helped open the tomb, so that Damon would leave town. After Grams and Bonnie opened the tomb, Grams lied down and because the spell took so much out of her, she died. Bonnie was devastated, took a few weeks off from school after her funeral. Since then Bonnie has taken witchcraft more seriously. After the veil between the living and the dead is broken, a vast group of spirits return to Mystic Falls, including Sheila Bennett. After she reveals to Bonnie that the balance of nature has been offset, together, Bonnie and Sheila perform a spell that would destroy The Original Witch's Talisman. Before her departure, Sheila gives words of encouragement to Bonnie, reminding her of her strength, and how proud she is of how far Bonnie has come. When Elena was transitioning into a vampire, Bonnie tried to pull her human spirit from the other side but she was stopped by Sheila, who warned her of the dark magic she was using and to stop messing with nature. When she continued to do so, Bonnie watched her grandmother die right in front of her. Then can now presumably stay together on the Other Side after she told Jeremy that she could stay with grams and she left holding her hand.
Lucy seemed to be Katherine's friend. She appeared in Masquerade. She is a witch and also Bonnie's cousin. She linked Elena to Katherine, in order to protect her. After Bonnie learned that she can trust Lucy, she handed over the moonstone. Lucy suffocated Katherine, and after that gave Bonnie the moonstone and left town soon after. However, before she left she told Bonnie that she was a good witch and that she needed to continue to fight. She also reassured Bonnie that she would see her again.

Powers and Abilities
Bonnie is most notably the most powerful Witch in her generation. She is capable of performing spells without some of the most important reagents to gain the desired effect. Bonnie's only known limitation as of late is dependent on her emotional status and confidence in her abilities (Though with a lack of proper magical control). Her magical strength is equal to, if not greater, than her ancestor Qetsiyah, the co-creator of the Immortality Spell with Silas, The First Vampire. Bonnie is the only known witch to ever unite all of magic in a single spell, though the use of it over-exerted her and she died. Along with her exceptional prowess as a Witch, Bonnie also possesses the more common Witch abilities (And a few unique) of:
- Channeling: The act of channeling or drawing other forms of energy and power by focusing on celestial events.
- Conjuration: The act of calling, commanding, or summoning an element, object, person, or spirit already in existence.
- Elemental Control: The act of controlling and manipulating the elements of air, earth, fire, water, and weather.
- Mind Control: The act of controlling and manipulating the minds of humans. (Similar to Compulsion)
- Mind Stunning: The act of bemusing and rendering someone unconscious.
- Pain Infliction: The act of creating and inflicting excruciating pain upon another person, especially vampires.
- Precognition: The act of foreseeing future events and happenings.
- Spell Casting: The act of changing and controlling events by magical influence.
- Telekinesis: The act of controlling and manipulating the movements of objects and persons.
- Witches Brew: The act of brewing and concocting supernatural elixirs and potions that contain mystical properties.
- Healing Factor: Bonnie was able to quickly heal herself after being bitten by Elena.
- Petrification: As part of her Expression powers, Bonnie was able to desiccate a powerful creature such as Silas, a warlock and the first vampire, turning him into stone.
- Uniting Magic: Bonnie is capable of using Spirit Magic, Dark Magic, and Expression in tandem to perform a spell.
- Ressurection: She, along with Emily Bennett and Esther, are the few witches known to be capable of defying the will of nature and returning someone who had died back to life. Though in Bonnie's case it costed her own life.
Weaknesses and Vulnerabilities
- Fear: A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the condition or feeling of being afraid could cause a witch to temporarily lose their powers.
- Overuse Of Magic: The excessive use of magic could lead a witch to death from over-exertion. Inevitably, it was this that caused her initial death when uniting the three magics.
- Main article: Bonnie McCullough
Bonnie McCullough is a main female character of The Vampire Diaries book series. She is an 18 year old psychic human girl (who is also said to be a witch) who is from the small town of Fells Church, Virginia. Bonnie is best friends with Elena Gilbert, Meredith Sulez, Matt Honeycutt and Stefan Salvatore. Bonnie is the only person within the entire series to develop a deep, strong, tender and genuine relationship with Damon Salvatore. Bonnie was born on September 8, 1974 (1992 in the present version) in Fells Church, Virginia. She is of Scottish American descent and she is descended from ancient Celtic Druids (pronounced Droo-ids). She has witch ancestry and she possesses psychic powers, which developed and became immensely powerful and strong over a period of time throughout the course of the series. Bonnie has a Scottish grandmother from Edinburgh, Scotland, who is a psychic witch (like herself) and whom she was very close to. She has one older sister named Mary McCullough, who is a nurse and who is two to three years older than her. It has been mentioned in the novels that Bonnie might possibly have another sister other than Mary, although this is not certain and has not been confirmed so it is assumed that Bonnie only has one sibling. Bonnie has slowly learned to control her strong abilities as a psychic, although her powers often become much too overwhelming for her to handle at times. Bonnie's psychic abilities are hereditary according to Bonnie, and she says that the psychic powers always skip a generation. Bonnie's grandmother has the psychic (witch) abilities, but she says that her mother doesn't possess them. Bonnie has also dabbled in the art of witchcraft successfully and she had done this when trying to help Elena find Stefan when he had gone missing in The Struggle.
Physically, Bonnie is described to be a small, petite girl with deep, large brown eyes, a heart shaped face, long strawberry red-gold hair (which is curly permed) and very fair skin or complexion, which is said to be highly translucent and opaque. Bonnie's physical appearance is often described to be innocent, dainty and childlike. Initially, in the very beginning of the series, Bonnie comes off as kind hearted and caring, but she is not seen to be very bright, scholarly and intelligent at all. In Dark Reunion, Bonnie begins to dabble in the art of witchcraft, and successfully pulls off a summoning ritual to call Stefan back to Fell's Church, then successfully manages to help Stefan communicate with a ghost!Elena by various means. At the end of Dark Reunion, Bonnie is the one who screams about the unfairness of their tragic fate, which triggers Elena's return from the afterlife. It is unknown if Bonnie's strong and powerful powers played any significant role in making this happen, or if it was just a matter of lucky timing (it was the night of the summer solstice, when ghosts were said to be prone to returning to Earth anyway). She slowly realizes that she isn't as dumb as she believes herself to be (and, as a result, as she's convinced everyone else she is), and that she's actually rather resourceful, useful, needed and loved by all of her friends. Although Bonnie's characterization generally appears to be light-hearted, bubbly and sweet, Bonnie is deeply fascinated with and drawn to darkness and unconventionality, especially with death. Bonnie frequently talks about, fantasizes about and romanticizes death, especially her own; constantly talking about her Scottish grandmother's prophecy that she would be young and beautiful in her grave, and she is going to die romantically. She is fickle, idealistic and flighty when it comes to the opposite sex.
Bonnie is described to be highly flirtatious and coy. She has a habit of chasing boys, therefore, this has made her look somewhat flighty, ditzy, unstable and even promiscuous when it comes to the opposite sex. She has had numerous boyfriends, crushes and infatuations whom she doesn't seem to take seriously at all due to her fickleness, flightiness and her inability to commit to a stable, long-term romantic relationship. Bonnie has shown some interest in Matt Honeycutt. She begins to develop a relationship with Matt (especially in Dark Reunion), although Matt is still very much in love with Elena. Matt has been seen to be very protective over Bonnie, especially where Damon is concerned, and he appears to have a brother-sister, best friend or platonic connection with her. She has a pleasant and easy-going connection with Matt. Bonnie has a very deep, strong, indescribable and undeniable attraction and connection with Damon Salvatore. She deeply and strongly cares about him (unconditionally) and is indescribably and undeniably drawn to him. Damon has saved her life on various occasions throughout the course of the series and because of it, Damon is seen as Bonnie's hero and protector. Damon has shown to be fiercely protective (sometimes overly protective) of Bonnie even though he won't and can't admit it to himself (for whatever unexplained reasons) and he is always there for her whenever she is in trouble of any kind. Bonnie is Damon's "weak spot" although Damon constantly and repeatedly tries to deny it throughout the series. By the end of the original series, Bonnie had become significantly more mature, grounded and serious; focusing on the more important issues and problems at hand rather than about the opposite sex and chasing boys. She even surprises herself a few times with her own insightful, helpful contributions to the fight against Klaus. Bonnie, who is a powerful psychic with supposed witch ancestry, is often greatly overwhelmed by her powers, and attempts to repress the true extent of them without very much success.
