What happens at a bachelorette party stays at the bachelorette party...right? Not if you're on The Vampire Diaries!

Jo (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) and Alaric's (Matt Davis) big day is fast approaching, and there can't be a wedding without the requisite bachelor/bachelorette parties. And according to series star Kat Graham, that means there's going to be a lot of nudity heading our way on the CW supernatural drama.

Oh, what a time to be alive!

"The bachelorette party I'm really excited for," Graham tells E! News. "There's lots of shirtless awesomeness happening. It's really ridiculous. I'm sure there's going to be many .gifs of it made. You'll enjoy it!"

But there's more than just fun, games and nudity coming up on The Vampire Diaries. Now that Bonnie has made her way back to real life after spending all that time on her own in the 1994 prison world, she's come back a changed woman. Graham has really enjoyed getting to play that character evolution this season.

"I'm just playing myself now, really," Graham tells E! News with a laugh. "It's been really great because I get to work out my own stuff within the show and I've had a really empowering year myself with a lot of changes. I'm hoping that comes through in the acting and everything I put into the show. I love the development and playing a character who's at the end of her rope and who tries to give herself another chance and put herself first, I think more women should do that!"

And Graham reveals that this fierce, independent Bonnie is here to stay...and that means everyone else needs to watch out!

"She has a bit of temper, so it really depends on who is pissing her off. Caution: Damon!" Graham says. "It's not going to take much for her to stand up for herself now. You'll see Bonnie use her magic in different ways soon, sometimes in a very threatening way and sometimes as her defense."

But just because Bonnie may blow up at Damon (Ian Somerhalder) from time to time, that doesn't mean their friendship is going to take a hit. These two are BFFs for life now!

"I don't think their friendship will be affected," Graham says. "Damon knows that Bonnie really, truly knows him now, and he can't pull one over on her. If anything, their friendship is stronger now because he respects her more. She calls him out on his s--t which I think is super important."

And that's going to come in handy in tonight's episode, when Bonnie makes it known that she has some concerns about Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon's plan to each take the cure for vampirism.

"Bonnie wants the best for Elena and calls out Damon for his selfishness," Graham teases. "She wants her best friend to have the life she wants. She wants her to have a choice. Things are going to come to a head for sure."

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
