The Vampire Diaries :: Season 2, Episode 9
Elena and Katherine bond over a history lesson and Bonnie discovers a new witch is in town. Find out what happened on the latest episode of The Vampire Diaries.
This week on The Vampire Diaries fans learned more about Katherine’s complicated past and why the “originals” are chasing after her. Curious about the truth behind Katherine’s story, Elena visits her in the tomb and bribes her into sharing her tale. The episode features a flashback to Katherine’s family, circa 500 years ago, as Katherine tells Elena why she is in danger and how she can get help.
Katherine (aka Katerina) met the original vampire, Klaus, and became friends with him until she realized what he wanted – her blood. Rose and Trevor became traitors when they tried to save Katherine from the evil Klaus, and have been on the run ever since. Instead of waiting for Klaus to kill her, Katherine took things into her own hands, tricking Rose into giving her blood, and then killing herself. Once she was a vampire, she was of no use to Klaus. Now Elena is Klaus’ only hope for breaking the curse.

However, the episode also revealed that Elena is not the only one in Mystic Falls who is in danger. In order to break the curse Klaus needs the blood of a Petrova doppelganger (Elena), a witch (Bonnie), a werewolf (Tyler) and a vampire (Caroline). Elena becomes more depressed than ever as she realizes there really is no hope for her family and friends.
Unfortunately, Jeremy and Bonnie’s relationship took one step forward and two steps back in the episode. Jeremy goes out on a limb and invites Bonnie to hang out after school, but is interrupted when a new student – Luca – joins their conversation. Luca and Bonnie seem to have an instant connection, and Jeremy is less than thrilled when they run into him again at the diner. Bonnie sits down with Luca and his dad for a quick chat, and quickly realizes something is not normal. Surprising, it turns out Luca is also a witch. Even more surprisingly, Luca’s dad is involved in Klaus’ master plan to kill Elena.
The Vampire Diaries is taking a quick break but will be returning December 2. Is Elena in too deep? Will Bonnie realize that Luca’s family is going to cause trouble? Stay tuned to find out!
