The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Katerina"

by at . Comments

Katherine came across like an evil chef on this week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, relaying to Elena just what ingredients she needs in order to placate the world's most powerful blood sucker.

Yikes, huh?

With so much insight into this character's background, and so many ways in which it affects the present, our staff had a lot to discuss in this edition of The Vampire Diaries Round Table. We invite readers to chime in on the following topics...

What was your favorite quote/scene from the episode?
Matt R: Probably the sight of Katherine hanging herself. I had never considered one turning into a vampire via suicide in such a manner, but it made it clear just how manipulative and selfish Katherine can be, as the fact that she used Trevor and Rose came to light in that moment.

Steve M: I could choose any one of Ian Somerhalder's line delivers, but I loved this quote: "If you're setting me up in anyway, I will rip your heart out and shove it own your throat. Something I'm very good at."

Gabrielle C: I really loved the ending of this episode. We got to see the soft side of Katherine while she looked at the picture of her parents. She was always selfish, as her quasi motto states ("Better you die than I"),  but she obviously possessed a soft side at some point.

Do you believe everything Katherine shared?
Matt R: Yes, because I have faith in the show's writers and producers. It's fine to paint this character as a liar, but at some point, she has to be truly coming clean or else viewers will just tune everything she says out. The folks behind the series are likely aware of this and chose this episode to have Katherine finally reveal her evil hand.

Steve M: What reason would she have to be lying about wanting to college Elena, Tyler and company? I can't see any advantage this suppose lie would give her, so I'll assume it's the truth.

Gabrielle C: I want to... but nothing adds up. In the season premiere, she turned Caroline and gave Stefan/Damon a message: "Game on." She then used Caroline as a minion. Now, all of the sudden, Caroline was changed so she could be used as the vampire to be sacrificed. Seems like Katherine will say anything.

Is Luka working with his father?
Matt R: Definitely. It's a good warlock/bad warlock thing. The father gets too forward, the son apologizes, earns Bonnie's trust and then... I have no idea. Afraid to see what will happen from there.

Steve M: Because I don't know, I'll answer this question with one of my own: does Elijah really need a witch, as he had Slater call and claim to Rose? Can a warlock not be used to break the curse? Might he be deceiving Dr. Martin in some way himself in order to eventually use him as part of a spell? Okay, I guess that was three questions.

Gabrielle C: I don't think so. I doubt he knows anything about what his father is up to.

Which was the most impressive Nina Dobrev portrayal: as Katherine in 1490, Katherine in 1492, Katherine in present day or Elena in present day?
Matt R: We only got a brief glimpse of it, but Katherine in 1492. Think about it: the actress was playing the doppleganger of her current character, who was pretending to be British. That's like a copy of a copy of a copy. My head hurts.

Steve M: A tie between both present day versions. Why? Because so much of the episode was spent with Elena speaking ti Katherine and vice versa. This means Dobrev was often acting opposite a green screen, and doing an amazing job at it.

Gabrielle C: Katherine in 1490. Excellent acting by her in all four portrayals, but in the 1490 flashback she really looked heartbroken, and it was great to see Nina speak in her native language!

What actor should play Klaus?
Matt R: I made this joke in my review, so I think I still need to go with Mel Gibson. What creature would not be scared of him at this point?!?

Steve M: Charlie Sheen. Give Klaus some drugs and swipe his expensive watch and viewers will see an ancient vampire on a serious rampage!

Gabrielle C: I'd love to see Chace Crawford join this cast. I'm sure he could do evil well.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6: How Will Elena Cope?

What can viewers expect from The Vampire Diaries Season 6? SPOILERS AHEAD!

In the book, Klaus has blond/white hair and electric blue eyes. I for one think that Klaus should be played by Jensen Ackles from Supernatural, he's perfect for him. This video is what really made me choose him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
I promise after you watch this you will want no one but him to be Klaus, he's legit perfect.

Luka & his dad are shifty & up to something. Can he just hurry up & go away. I was rooting for Jeremy & Bonnie to get together, they're so cute!

I thought Klaus was somehow romantically involved with Katherine before she found out about his true motifs to her. If that's the case, Klaus should be somehow older but should look younger for his age. And my choice would be Milo Ventimiglia, or Luke Mably.

@Shannon...Gary Oldman is the bomb. I absolutely love him. He plays dark, psychotic characters so well. Also, he already has vampiric credentials. He played Count Dracula in the 1992 film directed by Francis Ford Coppola "Bram Stoker's Dracula." It would be great if they can hire him, but I don't think CW can afford him. Also agree with those who suggested James Marsters.

I can't wait until episode ten. I bet the cliffhanger will be eating away at fans untill the show comes back from the hiatus. I hope luka isn't involved I agree with most of you that say Bonnie should be with Jeremy or someone nice not evil and cheating. I can't wait to see what happens with Katherine and Jeremy when he asks for the moonstone and Katherine replies: come in and get it. I'm sure he will go in and get it because he has the ring on but what if Katherine attackks Jeremy and turns him while in the tomb so he can't get out!? Omg maybe that will happen. I can't wait-to find out

Zachary Quinto should play Klaus.He could do evil very well and I think he's perfect for this part.

i thought i liked the end of the episode when elena cries. nina dobrev did that so welllll!!!!!! I LOVE THIS SHOWWWW

Alexander Skarsgard should play Klaus. And so the vampire hotness trio of the TV world would be complete :P Of course, that isn't possible so I guess James Marsters would be an equally amazing candidate.

As Klaus I can see f.e. James Marsters, he has a really good english accent plus he used to play bad vampire(and was hot) plus he's older and only way I can imagine Klaus is a older, but sexy and having something hypnotic in the eyes man :-) I don't know whom they choose, but I hope it won't be a young actor(at least 35-40 years old).
