Guess who’s back?
The myth, the legend. The baddest bitch of all, she’s back. Can you try? I am excited already.
TVD S05 E15 saw us saw goodbye to a fan favorite character, and now she’s back to wreck havoc on the citizens of Mystic Falls for the remaining two episodes of the series. My beloved Katerina Petrova a.k.a. Katherine Pierce is back. Remember my article on TVD’s Hell? Click here to read it again.
How did we get here?
Remember the weapon Damon spoke of that could actually kill the Devil? It actually worked. They killed the Devil. More appropriately, Stefan stabbed the Devil in the heart and he exploded in flames.
Cade had wanted Damon to choose between Stefan and Elena, whom he’d prefer to save. This scenario’s one I’ve always wondered what would happen should the day ever come. Everyone knows Damon loves Elena, and that he also loves his brother. It gave me chills when Damon preferred to kill himself than either of them, shows how much Damon has come as a character – from selfish to selfless.
When it was time claim his soul, Cade had to battle it out with Bonnie who wasn’t ready to say goodbye to her best friend. Truth be told, Bonnie would have lost that fight had Stefan not stepped in to Stab Cade to death. The psychic blast from Cade’s death jumped Damon’s soul back into his body.
Now, Kai had told the crew that killing Cade was going to destroy Hell with him, and that was something the team was willing to do… sacrifice all the souls there just to get rid of Cade and his claim of their loved ones souls (Stefan and Damon.) It happened Kai lied (typical Kai); killing Cade let the next in line in the hierarchy of evil to ever walk the face of the earth but now occupying Hell – Katherine – to take over, and as Kai said, she’s coming to take her revenge on them for what they did to her. PS: Kai got locked up for trying to kill Josie and Lizzie (Alaric’s daughters).
By my calculations, Katherine has been gone for 6 years (3 years between season 5 to 8, and the 3 years time jump the show made); to be next in line after Cade to a place as horrible as Hell solidifies Katherine as indeed one of the greatest villains to ever grace the TVD world. Cade has been an immortal and ruling Hell since 4,000 B.C, Katherine had a lifespan of 500+ years, and a death-span of only 6 years, I’ll say she’s done well for herself.
What does Katherine’s return mean for the living?
With only 2 episodes to go, and Elena expected in the next episode (E15), Katherine doesn’t really have much time to cause mayhem, but I am certain she’ll make her mark be felt. Stefan’s about to get married to Caroline (E15 judging by the promo), I don’t think Katherine being Katherine would let that happen since Stefan is the love of her life, a feeling jot reciprocated. Elena is billed to return and if there’s something TVD had thought us it is how much Katherine hates her doppelganger for cheating her off everything good in life, so Katherine should have fun for a little while trying to mess up Elena’s life.
I don’t think Katherine will have a happily ever after story like Elena is expected to, something tells me she won’t be on Earth for long; so it’s either she remains the Queen-B of Hell, only momentarily coming to cause havoc on this plain, or she she is sent into the world to freely live life to her terms (least probable), or she is killed again (looks most probable), time will tell how it’ll go. Meanwhile, let me celebrate the return of my number 1 character in TVD land. This final season has been wonderful in terms of fan service and wrapping up the various story-lines, I just hope they do justice to the final episode.
TVD returns next Friday, March 3rd, 2017 on The CW.
