lauralia answered your question: Do I recap the episode now, or have we all almost…
Katherine took the cure - can she actually just to back into a vampire again?! Or does the cure prevent that? Confused if she can - wasted!
I don’t know if she can,
this whole cure storyline makes me want to go find the nearest bottle of vodka.
Though for Kat to turn back into a vampire, she’d need to die with vamp blood in her system (again) and go through the whole transformation again. There’s not a single vampire in MF willing to do that for her, so I think she’s going to be stuck human for a while.
Which is gonna be interesting ;-)
destinedtofly: I’m just not comprehending what’s going on with this doppelganger business anymore.
And here’s where the mystery of me comes full circle. I created the immortality spell 2,000 years ago. I can never die, so nature needed to find a balance, and version of me that could die. A shadow self. A doppelgänger . -4x23
The curse was bound by the sacrifice of Petrova blood. Witches are crafty with their spells. The doppelgänger was created as a way to be able to undo the spell. Once a doppelgänger reappeared, the curse could be broken. -2x09
I’m trying to think of a way I can try and explain this without confusing everyone even more. Personally, I think the mythology that gets involved in this story is the most difficult for everyone to comprehend just because there’s so much lore to try and understand.
Doppelganger’s are created to be able to undo a curse. With Esther’s spell that she used to turn her children into vampires, she used the blood of Tatia. It was the blood of her doppelgangers (Katerina and Elena) that could ultimately break that curse/create the hybrids/whatever it was, I get a little fuzzy on those specifics…
In the same manner, when Silas created the spell to become immortal, there needed to be a way to break that spell, which would be the blood of his doppelganger, Stefan.
caramelcorretto: Maybe you could write about Elena’s speech, i.e. “worst choice she’ll ever make”? Because I didn’t like that :/
You would rather die than be human, and you expect me to be okay with that?
[ I didn’t say you were supposed to be okay with that. I just said that I’m not sorry, but you know what I really am? Selfish. Because I make bad choices that hurt you. Yes I’d rather die than be human, I’d rather die right now than spend a handful of years with you only to lose you when I’m too old and sick and miserable and you’re still you. I’d rather die right now than spend my last few years remembering how good I had it, and how happy I was because that’s who I am Elena and I’m not going to change, and there’s no apology in the world that encompasses all the reasons that I’m wrong for you.]
Fine. Then I’m not sorry either. I’m not sorry that I met you, I’m not sorry knowing you has made me question everything, that in death that you’re the one that made me feel most alive. You’ve been a terrible person, you’ve made all the wrong choices and of all the choices I have made this will be worst one, but I am not sorry that I’m in love with you.
I can already tell, every time I re-watch this speech, I’m going to get emotional. Ugh. Anyway…
When Elena says “of all the choices I have made this will be the worst one”, she’s not really saying that she’s going to live to regret loving Damon and that she’s making a mistake loving Damon.
The way I interpret this speech is that Elena isn’t oblivious to Damon’s flaws; she knows what a horrible person Damon is, and that’s a good thing. Damon Salvatore is a vampire. He’s not meant to be character of moral, and Elena seeing that now means that she accepts him for who he is, for who they are.
Damon says he makes bad choices that hurt her, which is where I think the “worst choice I’ll make” comes from. She knows that being with Damon things aren’t going to be perfect, that he’s an emotional person and reacts on that emotion and that will occasionally hurt her, but she’s accepting that.
She’s accepting that because she loves him.
(I really hope this makes sense)
Am I right in thinking every single person on the show has died at least once?

This is so beautiful, Steffie!
stefan and elena might have a history. but damon and elena have a journey.
history is something that belongs in the past, whether good, bad or a mix of both.
a journey is a continuous adventure, always evolving and changing. a journey is projected toward the future.
FYI I will staunchly defend against anyone who says Damon deserves what he gets tonight/has it coming or any Damon negativity. By the same token, if I see anyone saying Elena doesn’t deserve Damon/Elena’s a “bitch” or any Elena negativity expect the same treatment.
They might be at odds right now, but both are understandable on different levels, so no I won’t take any anti-Damon or anti-Elena comments lightly.
