TVLINE | Were you at all concerned that fans would feel like Damon was choosing Bonnie over Elena?
That was my thought, too, that Bonnie would be feeling really crappy about this, but then we talked in the writers room about it.
Bonnie’s so strong coming out of Season 6; she really became a woman this season.
For her to go back on all of that didn’t feel like the story we wanted to see.
TVLine spoke with executive producer Caroline Dries immediately after Thursday’s bloody (so many deaths!
) and heartbreaking (#Goodbye Elena) hour for the scoop on what’s to come.
