“The Vampire Diaries” season 5 aired a heck of an episode Thursday night in “500 Years of Solitude,” and one that contained twist after twist that you may not have seen coming. Still, to us the biggest shocker was learning that in the end, Katherine found a way to survive yet again. The twist now is that she is trapped in Elena’s body, which gives this quite a strange “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide” sort of situation.
So where do we go from here now? Well, let’s just say that the episode title “The Devil Inside” makes so much more sense than it ever did before. Katherine once again has a life, but the twist here now is that she has a body that could be predisposed to living forever once again after having to try to sweat it out as a human. You can take a look at some more details about this installment courtesy of the synopsis:
“When Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) brings Damon (Ian Somerhalder) a gruesome present and insists that they bond by committing an act of revenge, Damon makes an effort to do the honorable thing. After finding himself in awkward and confusing conversations with Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda), Matt impulsively decides to throw a party, where Caroline (Candice Accola) makes a stunning confession to Elena (Nina Dobrev), then has to face the consequence of her actions with Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Tyler (Michael Trevino). Aaron (guest star Shaun Sipos) does his best to make amends for his family’s past misdeeds and start a new life for himself. Finally, Elena suddenly finds herself in a life-threatening situation with only minutes to figure out how to save herself.”
Basically, both this and the promo below suggest to us that things are only going to continue to be messy the rest of the way, at least until this whole body issue is completely taken care of.
