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.

]: If Luka turns out to be evil, I will be kinda happy because then Bonnie'll hate him, and Jeremy will be happy! lol He was so jealous at the end of the episode, it broke my heart. ):

i would like to point out that Luka has all the same letters as Klaus...

Avatar

if i could chose anyone to play klaus...Sebastian Stan or Taylor Kitsch. Both are damn good actors in my option. (the covenant). Also, yes I believe Luka is working with his father and he had better not get too close to Bonnie...because I want her with Jeremy. loved this episode just as much as i do all of the episodes

Van-ayson

yes julian mcmahon shoud play klaus wait I want to see Zachary Levi be evil this time!!!

1. The look of the Damon opening the door for Elena hours after his confession, was sad.
2. No, Doppelgangers always hunt down those who they resemble, making it clear that Katherine has some sort of agenda that involves Elena.
3. Certainly, but are being forced to work with Elijah, as the witch who was assisting Katherine.
4. Katherine in 1490.
One more question. Why go home after becoming a vampire (in a place that was driven out and took his daughter)?
5. I do not know.

That guy Dave Williams from Desperate Housewives, Edie's ex whom was the big season 5 mystery, he and his evil eyes would flourish in the role.

@k1ko: Zachary Quinto would be perfect! I just love him as a villain :-)

I pictured a teenager playing Klaus. Although Julian Mcmahon would be perfect.
