Will Bonnie go Bad or Bad-Ass?

Throughout the six seasons of The Vampire Diaries we have seen a lot of our beloved characters go through some really terrible traumatic events, but of all the victims in Mystic Falls Bonnie Bennett had to be the most afflicted. Somehow, Bonnie always seems to be coming of the worst and it usually ends in her death... Again.

From offering as a bargaining chip for another life, to having it took from her by the laws of the universe, Bonnie Bennet's stream of bad luck didn't end there. At the end of season five we thought we were saying a tearful goodbye to the witch as she was claimed by an over powering light. But oh no. Bonnie, actually die? No, of course not. Instead she was subject to torture and became the play thing of a psychopathic witchy-wanna be from the Gemini coven. Although born a witch Kai the psycho guy, could not wield his own magic and had to harvest magic from another source- and who else was better than good old Bonnie.

Hoever more recently we seen her return to Mystic Falls, and good old loving Bonnie just doesn't seem the same. And her calm collective personality has been shown to crack! The psychological scars of her time in the 1994 prison world has shown to have caused serious damage to her. Bonnie was always known for her moral attitudes, actions and beliefs and as much as I hate to admit often a little bit of a martyr. But that isn't the case anymore. As we seen recently Bonnie stabbed Kai Parker, her tormenter and torturer, several times and left him to bleed out in 1904 and second prison world created by the Gemini Coven. Although many may believe that Kai deserved this betrayal, we recently seen him gain human empathy and emotions and actually seek out penance for his actions prior to absorbing elements of Luke's personality- again I do not want to talk about that, I wasn't okay with how that went down...

Wit Kai trying always for forgiveness since gaining these emotions Bonnie was not phased by this change in him and sought only revenge. She could not give him her forgiveness and left him to die in 1904. Little does Bonnie know that Kai found his way to the vampiric family of Lily Salvatore left behind in the 1904 prison world, whom we have just found are VAMPIRE WITCHES.

Like Kai, unable to use magic without a source, now as vampires they have an unlimited source of power by channeling themselves. And as we last saw Kai was being, for lack of a better word, 'eaten' by them. I'm presuming, as the seasons almost big bad, that Kai will become vampiric and seek revenge on the morally ambiguous Bonnie Bennet. But hey, if not, she's still going to have to deal with a group of super-vampires.

Having seen this darker part of Bonnie it is possible that if her psychologic issues are not established and treat her mental state may decline and her actions may cascade from this point on. And using stabbing someone to death as a starting point, it could get pretty nasty, pretty quickly. Leaving Kai showed us the moral battle raging within Bonnie and that ultimately the darker part of her psyche won. Seasons ago we seen bonnie using dark magic and slowly becoming a dark character- could this be coming full circle?

Putting herself at ease believing that Kai is forever imprisoned in the 1904 prison world Bonnie has murdered a potentially innocent being- now that Kai has emotions he may not have done such actions if he had them to begin with. However now Bonnie will either become a one track mind in regards to what is right and what is wrong or snowball into a revenge seeking Uber-Witch. With the season focusing on just how psychologically tormenting her experience has been I firmly believe that Bonnie Bennet will no longer be the girl we've known and loved for six seasons but a violent and powerful being fuelled from her pain.

I just hope she gets through it.

But if Kai does come back, or at least when the outcasts of the Gemini coven do, I think this new Bonnie could defiantly give them a run for their money. I suppose we will just have to wait and find out!

Goodbye Elena: Nina Dobrev officially leaving The Vampire Diaries

It's official! And from the horses mouth too! Nina Dobrev has announced that season six, the current running season, of The CW hit television show, The Vampire Diaries will continue without her. The show was given the green light for season seven earlier in the season and it seems the series is going all steam ahed without the beautiful Dobrev.

Mere hours ago Dobrev posted a picture of herself along with executive producer, Julie Plec, on Instagram stating:

"I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be a human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger, I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and theres still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family."

Rumours have spread like wildfire through the internet this morning with different interpretations at to what this news means to The Vampire Diaries, however the only facts that we have at the moment is that Dobrev is leaving, Micheal Trevino, who plays Mystic Falls' beloved and hottest werewolf Tyler Lockwood, will be leaving with his co-star. Finally, that Plec will change the focus of the show from Elena, to the Salvatore siblings.

It feels like that moment when Sarah Michelle Gellar wouldn't renew Buffy for an eighth season all over again. Delena fans certainly won't be happy to hear this news.

Yet, now Julie Plec, the series' writer and executive producer can steer the show in any direction she feels necessary. This could potentially open up thousands of potential storylines, that may have been otherwise dismissed. It's really quite exciting!

Nina Dobrev has given the successful supernatural show six strong years, having played an abundance of characters, died several times, become a vampire, lost her humanity, found it again, burnt down her house, and seen far too many people she cared about die. Elena clearly deserves a break from Mystic Falls' run of supernatural bad luck and I'm sure Dobrev could do with a few weeks off after all that!

In less than twenty four hours we've lost two of the hottest stars and characters from The Vampire Diaries. So with that we wait for the season six finale to hit in May, and wish both Nina Dobrev and Micheal Trevino farewell. 


Star Trek: Into Date Night

Only a few days ago British Netflix honoured us with Star Trek: Into Darkness. Uploading the incredible sequel to Star Trek (2009), giving a different interpretation to the well know story of 'The Wrath of Khan', a superior war criminal with dangerous strength and intellect, striking fear into the hearts of all those involved in Star Fleet's operations. Those who boldly go where none has gone before.

With this in mind I decide to have a date night with my boyfriend Nick, to celebrate Netflix's uploading of Star Trek: Into Darkness. So being all witty, I decided to call this night, Star Trek: Into Date Night!

With candles lit and the oven heating up I followed these five simple steps to making Star Trek: Into Date Night Happen...


Parasocial Relationships

First of all what is a Parasocial Relationship and where do we find them?

Basically, a parasocial relationship is a one-way or non-reciprocal relationship with a character or persona. This is therefore the psychological term given to the attachment of 'fans' to characters or celebrities. These relationships can be formed with television characters, video game characters, literary characters or even real people.

Just about everyone with access to different forms of media have established parasocial relationships; from your favourite children book characters, like Harry Potter to your favourite characters on Netflix originals, obviously Piper Kerman, they all fall under the umbrella term of a parasocial relationship.

The most famous case of parasocial relationships in pop culture is the forming of the fan base the brown coats. These are the avid fans of Firefly, the Joss Whedon television programme cancelled after only one season. These fans petitioned and met regularly at conventions and shin digs in order to raise awareness of the loss of their favourite television show. Ultimately this led to a successful blockbuster film Serenity being made, picking up where the last show left off. This captures just how extreme parasocial relationships can actually become- which is amazing considering they are only enforced by one person. It also showcases the implications of these relationships, as actors jobs were apparent again along with an entire work force used to create a large blockbuster movie.

So now if you're watching TV, reading a novel or comic and think wow! They're my favourite character, well now you know why. You have a strong parasocial relationship with the character in question.


Newcastle Comic-Con: The first Great Geek event in the North-East

This weekend saw Comic Con arrive in Newcastle at The Metro Arena with tickets from as little as £8 per day, per adult. The North-East of England is slowly growing it's dominance in terms of Geek Culture, however up until now, event wise, it was pretty poor. Although the city holds two impressive comic/popular culture stores, Forbidden Planet and Travelling Man, this comic-con was the first to really offer something to the popular culture table: And take it from me it was epic!

Fiends, Jedi's, Hero's and villains all made their way to the stadium. I, however, chose to go for a more subtle look, a power ranger, pre-morphed... I thought that was a nice enough little quirk for losing my Comic-Con virginity...
