Yesterday Kat Graham was making her rounds chatting with the news sites. Here, she talks to E!Online, Zap2It and EW. I’m sure there will be more to come.
We’ll soon meet Bonnie’s mother, and Kat tells us she’s “like a kid in a candy store” to be getting this backstory. “[Bonnie’s] mother was out of her life for 15 years and…her father didn’t really want to be involved in any of this mess. They’ve still yet to introduce him so them bringing in the mom before the father is for a specific reason and it really makes sense for the storyline and what they need right now.”
Mysterious! So how is Bonnie’s friendship with Elena progressing?
I think the foundation of their relationship is solid, but you will start to see some serious bumps come along where Elena is forced to make decisions based on the facts at hand, and maybe not necessarily the repercussions — and the repercussions might be Bonnie. There are going to be a couple of bumps, and I don’t know how deep those bumps are going to go or how high. You are going to see happy and sad, which I think is normal, but there are going to be certain instances that have never happened before that are going to happen this season with Bonnie and Elena.
”There’s going to be some unanswered questions that Bonnie’s gonna have: Why did you leave me, or why did you disappear? What made you disappear? Where did you go? Why were you not in my life?” Graham says. “A lot of those questions will get answered and you will find out where her mom’s heart is and why she has to come back into Bonnie’s life. And that whole thing will surprise you, too, because it’s not what people think.”
