We have already heard a little bit about the casting of David Alpay to play the role of Professor Shane on the hit CW show, and while we still do not know that much about the man himself, Kat Graham tells E! News that is going to allow her character to be exposed to some things that she has not quite been exposed to before:
“Bonnie’s going to meet someone who’s going to have a huge impact on her future. That’s really exciting … [He]’s going to take her down a different kind of road. We’ll see how that plays itself out.”
By the time that season 4 really gets going, hopefully we get an answer to a question that just about anyone and everyone who loves this show wants an answer to: is Shane going to be a driving force for good in Bonnie’s life, or something else entirely? We imagine that it is going to be tough for her to have to suddenly deal with the fact that two of the people she loved the most in her life are now members of the vampire world, and it could cause her to go over the edge; as a matter of fact, you could even argue that Esther has already sent her down that road based on what happened with Alaric at the end of last season.
Do you think that seeing a darker side of Bonnie would be a good thing, or do you have some of your own theories as to what Shane’s contributions are going to be on the show this season? We want to hear some of your thoughts below! If you want to check out some more scoop about season 4 (and you know you want to) via a new fang-tastic video, you can do so over at the link here.
