Thursdays 8:00 PM on The CW

From the last show;

Elana: "What does the Petrova bloodline have to do with Klaus?"

Katherine: "It's really teadious but, the curse was bound by the sacrafice of Petrova blood. Witches are crafty with their spells. The doppleganner was created as a way to be able to undo the spell. Once the doppleganner reappeared the curse can be broken."

So a Petrova was sacraficed for the original curse. This makes Katherine and Elana descendants, doubles, doppleganners of the original Petrova which was sacraficed. Which is why the human Elana is the only one that can now be sacraficed to break the curse.

And they want to break the curse so they can walk in the sun. Right?

The timing sucks and setting is off.(enlighten me if im wrong). So an aztec shaman cursed the vamps and wolfs, the curse was bound by the sacrifice of a petrova(obv the origional katherine/elena). My question, how did someone from eastern europe end up all the way in latin america. Vanessa Monroe said the spell was made 600 years ago(i assume she's counting from presentday 2010) which it would have been in 1410, but the aztec empire did not reign until 1427.That doesn't make any sense to me...aah. so confused.

You are right, the whole Aztec thing cannot work. Katherina turned herself in 1492 the year Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas. There was no travel between Europe and the Americas before that, so it could not have been the Aztecs (even though they were big time into human sacrafice). You will notice however that Katherine kept saying witch when she was telling Elana the story, not shaman or Aztec. I think the writers have realized their timing and geography was wrong and they are trying to correct it now.

The werewovles does´n't die, if Elena dies. :P The curse is about something else. If the vampires break the curse, they will could walk in sun. If the werewovles breaks the curse, they doesn't have to turn every single full moon, they will turn whenever they want to.

I dont understand either why Elena haves to die. Maybe it is because she is a PETROVA doppleganger??

1) It was an aztec shaman who put a curse on vampires and werewolves but in order to do so he had to sacrifice Petrova

2) The shaman did it because werewolves and vampires were dangerous, they pretty much reigned over the humans and killed them

3) Katherine is not the original Petrova, she's a doppelganger. Klaus was looking for her before when she was human to break the curse by sacrificing her but she turned into a vampire.


Yes Elena has to die because she's a Petrova doppelganger and as I mentioned Petrova was sacrificed to seal the curse therefore her doppelganger aka Elena has to be sacrificed to break it.


Hope this helps! :)

the curse works like this the shaman had to sacrifice a vampire, werewolf, and human from a particular bloodline the petrovas.  The moon stone was used to bind the werewolves to the moon limiting their transformations  to the full moon, and he used something like a blood stone or a sun stone to bind the vampires to the sun damning them to walk in darkness.

Here is what can happen you can free the werewolves by sacrificing the petrova doppleganger, a werewolf and a vampire and the moonstone or the vampires can be set free by doing the same with the sun stone but both cannot be set free.

The doppleganger has to be killed to break the sun curse not the moon curse

This is the deal with the whole sun and the moon curse. There are two ways to break it.


The first way is if the vampires break the curse they will get to walk in the sun with or without a ring forever. Leaving the werewolves to have to be slaves of the moon. In other words having to turn on every full moon.

The second way is if the werewolves break it. They will get to turn by will, or if they want will never have to turn again. Leaving, the vampires to be slaves of the sun. In otherwords never being able to walk in sunlight again.


Both ways require ingridents like in every spell. A witch, a werewolf, a vampire, a doppleganger, a moonstone. If one acquires all these they will be able to break the curse. The reason Katherine had all these things was so she could hand over all the ingredients to Klaus so she could please him and be free. She had Bonnie as a watch, Mason then Tyler as a werewolf, Caroline as a vampire and Elena of course as the doppelganger and of course she had Mason get the moonstone for her.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
