Sheila to Bonnie in Home

The family relationship between the Witches, Bonnie and Sheila Bennett.

Sheila was the one that introduced Bonnie to witchcraft, due to this her father despised the relationship between the two. Sheila still looks out for Bonnie from the Other Side. However, since the Other Side's destruction, the two haven't seen each other again since their heartfelt goodbye scene. Sheila will always love Bonnie and is proud of Bonnie's accomplishments.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series

Season One

During the first half of season 1, Sheila told Bonnie about being a witch and helped her through it. At first, Bonnie didn't believe her, and joked about it with her friends. But, as her powers progressed she became scared, nervous and came to her Grams for help. Sheila agreed to help her, and taught her the witch craft ways and most of the do's and don'ts. Sheila used her powers along with Bonnie to open up the tomb beneath Fell's Church in which the vampires from 1864 had been sealed by Emily Bennett. Both found it draining, and Sheila told Bonnie to hold in there and keep going. Sheila later dies at that night from overload of magic leaving Bonnie depressed and as result, going through a personality change that made her more serious. She started to hate vampires, blaming them for her gram's death instead of the real reason; that her grams wasn't strong enough to do the spell.
