WARNING: If you haven’t watched “500 Years Of Solitude” I wouldn’t suggest reading this just yet!
It’s been a long day and a very long life for Miss Katherine Pierce. You might be like Elijah and Klaus and know her as “Katerina Petrova” as she’s been alive for over 500 years. Besides the originals, she’s the second oldest female vampire that has arrived in Mystic Falls. She’s been there twice in her life. She’s a fighter, and always been ever since the almighty Klaus has been after her. There’s a reason why a lot of people would hate her. Now she’s dying of old age after Silas sucked the cure out of her. Oh yeah, you didn’t know that? Yeah, Elena and Katherine fought over it in the boiler room and Elena stuffed it down her throat. She’s had a rough few weeks lately.
After Katherine suffers from a heart attack, Stefan takes her back to the Salvatore house and she spends her last day being sedated thanks to Sheriff Forbes, but something happens before all of that. Matt and Jeremy find a very drunken Damon asleep next by a bottle of booze. He gives them the “good news” as Stefan gives Caroline, Elena, and Bonnie the good news too and they play a quick game of “name what awful thing that Katherine did to me” and that’s when the one liners kept rolling out and they were awesome to say the least! Anyways, Nadia comes walking in and spoils their fun by knocking out Matt and stuffing him in the safe that Stefan was stuffed in at the beginning of the season. So everybody goes looking for him and Stefan and Elena go with Nadia to “volunteer” for some sort of travelers spell to make Katherine’s spirit transfer over into Nadia to keep her alive. Well, as everybody went out, Damon was left with Katherine with whom he wants to kill. He’s just having an awful day after breaking up with Elena and now his other ex is dying, but instead of killing her, he haunts her in her memories. Yes, I mean that as in flashbacks!
She goes back to the memories of she had her baby girl and when Klaus slaughtered her family shortly after she turned into a vampire. Well, we had some surprises in between those flashbacks and let’s just say some originals make it back to the scene. Caroline and Klaus have a “moment” if you want to call it that. Plus, Matt gets saved by another hot blonde, anybody know who I’m talking about? That’s right, Rebekah makes it back to rescue her old lover from the summer. Plus, Caroline might’ve found out that Bonnie and Jeremy slept together. Anyways, back to Stelena, I mean Stefan and Elena. They get ambushed by a bunch of travelers and they chant and take some of their blood. I’m still confused about that honestly. In the mist of all this, Nadia and her friend Mia head back to the Salvatore house and find Katherine heavily sedated and seeing some familiar people like Aunt Jenna, Uncle John, and Elijah.That was such a sweet moment too, but Damon of course ruins it once again. Nadia breaks Damon’s neck and gets to hear a mother-daughter speech of the centuries. I almost cried during the beautiful speech too. Damon awakes in the middle of it and hears the conversation. Nadia and her friend leave and that’s how that scene ends.
Well, after Elena and Stefan get back. Things get a little bit slower and Stefan goes to Katherine’s side and talks to her sweetly, unlike Damon. After that, everybody comes back to the house, Bonnie, Jeremy, and Matt are sitting and talking about Bonnie’s secret part of her life as she can see spirits but also feel them crossover. Well, that’s when Caroline walks in and then the next thing you know Matt’s sister Vicki, who was killed in the first season. Bonnie gives Matt a message from her, also a character that I was actually wondering about, Tyler comes back in the most awkwardest time of Caroline’s life as of right now. Think about it for a second, it’ll come to you. Plus, another character comes in as Damon makes his entrance to get another drink. Yes, even Alaric makes an appearance as well. After that, I was basically bawling my eyes out. I couldn’t help it. In the final scenes, Bonnie sees Katherine’s spirit but Katherine is pushing herself to stay alive after having the drugs in her system all day long. Elena talks to her in her last few moments and actually says she forgives her, but then as Katherine acts like she’s dying for real, she grabs Elena’s head and says the chant that Nadia taught her before she left and Katherine’s now in Elena’s body. Are you confused even more now? If you are, you obviously haven’t been watching all of the episodes to actually see the differences between them.
So tonight’s episode was the best. I’ve had my fair share of favorite episodes too, but seeing all of these characters that we’ve basically grown to love over the last few years, it’s just unbelievable! Especially the fact that they brought back Joseph Morgan, Claire Holt, Daniel Gillies, Sara Canning, Daniel Anders, Matt Davis, Kayla Ewall, and Michael Trevino in one episode. The tears and laughter I did throughout the whole episode was so worth it. At the beginning of the season, I didn’t I’d get back into the series again. I was more into “The Originals” than I was with TVD. I was really disappointed in a couple of the episodes, but tonight I was pumped and I fully enjoyed the surprises that they put together. I just wish we could have more episodes with these characters considering both Bonnie and Jeremy can see them too. I just miss them and I didn’t know how much until tonight I guess. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. If you watched it, what was your favorite scene and one liner? Who was also your favorite character to come back tonight?
