Get those tissues ready "Vampire Diaries" fans because it looks like we may have to bid farewell to yet another Mystic Falls resident.
According to E! Online, a character is being killed off, and it's going to be the real deal (in other words, they won't have a magic ring bringing them back to life!). Now, we're not completely surprised at this development. After all, "VD" loves to keep things interesting with unexpected deaths, and the writers don't shy away from axing beloved characters either (did we mention we're still not over the death of Anna?). Which leaves us wondering, who's next in line? Here are three prime candidates:
Mason Lockwood (Taylor Kinney): The new werewolf in town had a pretty decent shot of sticking around until he made an enemy out of both Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley), while getting romantic with Katherine (Nina Dobrev) (bad news all around!). The boys are already determined to get rid of him, and Katherine...well, Damon put it best, "She's Katherine." Mason is probably extremely expendable in her book. Of course, we're not counting him out just yet. There's still a lot about Mason that we don't know, and we doubt the writers are ready to end that story so quickly. Also, he's really, really good looking and we really, really like gawking at him every week, so please writers, take note. Chances of death? 25%
Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning): Aunt J has made a comeback of sorts this season by getting back together with Alaric and hanging with good pal Mason, but that doesn't mean she's sticking around. When we caught up with Sara last month, she hinted that darker times lay ahead. At the time, we didn't think it meant that her character was being killed off (come to think of it, she probably didn't either), but now it makes so much sense. After all, the death of Aunt Jenna would seriously affect Elena, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and, of course, Alaric (Matt Davis) making for an interesting storyline. Speaking of Alaric, we speculated months ago that he'd have a new lady in his life, a.k.a Vanessa (Courtney Ford), the grad student who made moves on him when he and the gang went to visit Duke. At the time he turned her down, but if Jenna's gone, we're guessing Alaric's going to need a shoulder to cry on. Chances of death? 65%
Bonnie (Katerina Graham): The girl may have tons of spells at her fingertips, but somehow we doubt that it's going to protect her from the wrath of Katherine. Kat's already tried to kill Bonnie once, and we certainly wouldn't be surprised if she did it again and this time, succeeded. No need to get too alarmed though Bonnie fans, we actually think it's pretty unlikely that Bonnie will be the one to go. After all, Mystic Falls needs its witch... Who else will make it possible for our fave vamps to stroll in the sun? Chances of death: 10%
There you have it, "Vampire Diaries" fans. Our guess is that Aunt Jenna will be the next character exiting Mystic Falls. Share your guess below!
