Earlier today, TVGuide.com posted an interesting article highlighting 11 promising pilots that may-or-may-not make it to air. Among them was the CW’s SECRET CIRCLE, a new series based on the popular book series of the same name that revolves around a young girl (LUX’s Britt Robertson), who after losing her mother moves to a new town and discovers that she is a witch.
According to TVGuide.com, the series, which is executive produced by THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Kevin Williamson, “has the same dreamy atmospherics as that show over in Mystic Falls, but has the advantage of just one brand of supernatural being.” According to us, it spells doom for Bonnie (Kat Graham) during what is sure to be one helluva bloody VAMPIRE DIARIES season finale this Thursday.
Not only is Bonnie in a relationship with Jeremy, who through no fault of his own has a history of falling for girls who quickly end up six feet under (See: Anna and Vicky), SECRET CIRCLE — which by all accounts is a virtual lock to join the CW Network this Fall — is all about those spellbinding witches. And what better way to ensure fans of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES don’t find themselves saying “been there done that” at say 9PM on Thursday? By quietly suggesting that writers Williamson and Julie Plec tone down that particularly aspect of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES by having Bonnie die a hero while saving the life of her best friend Elena. Agree, disagree, post away.
