How do you know that, we've only seen three other witches in her generation, and she never went one on one with any of them in a fair fight.
Yes, with Expression she is extremely powerful, but she's never gone against another witch in a fight on her own merit.
Well,considering she is the only witch ever known to unite her al types of magic together,I would say she is pretty powerful.
Yeah, except she died. Given what Sheila said about it being against nature, all the other witches were probably smart enough to know that they wouldn't survive the attempt.
Rather than Bonnie dying because she combined three magics, I think its more like the Nature found balance by Making Jeremy alive but instead keeping Bonnie dead. And, isn't that the very thing Damon is trying to do now? So, I don't think Bonnie died because she overused expression, but just because she challenged the Will Of Nature.
^She challenged the will of nature before and didn't die. Remember when Liz shot Jeremy? After Bonnie died, Sheila even said "I'm sorry Bonnie, the magic, it was too much" This is a dead give away that Bonnie died from overuse.
The title of this thread should be changed to "Did you know, Bonnie is one of the most powerful witches "we've seen" in her generation" We can't just declare she's the most powerful. Back in Damon's day, there was a witch in NO that was trying to use expression, for all we know there could be hundreds of witches that are trying to achive this power or already have it.
Here's what I think and its my personal opinion. Back then, when Jeremy was shot by Liz, Bonnie had Jeremy's body and Jeremy was wearing The Giblert Ring. And Bonnie was just trapping Jeremy's spirit and bringing him back from death. The witches said there would be consequences but never said Bonnie was going against The Will Of Nature. However, in the later, Bonnie had to bring the whole body of Jeremy, twisting the events of Reality, cause you know, Jeremy's body was long gone. People knew Jeremy was dead and it had been a while. So, maybe the time factor and all that stupid Body factor must have some effects, not just entirely magic!! Again, its my opinion.
Bonnie wasn't the one who did the spell to ressurect Jeremy, she asked the ghosts of the 100 dead witches to do it (well, more precisley give her the power) she just directed it, but it was their power. The fact that they were willing to do it indicated that it wasn't against nature.
And again, we have never seen Bonnie go against any other witches of her generation, the only one I remember her facing was Esther in trying to track down Elena, and Esther beat her. We can't just assume that Bonnie's the strongest.
What do you think?
