‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5, episode 10 video: The best Nina Dobrev – Katherine peek yet

What's next -The Vampire Diaries” airs its fall finale on Thursday night, but before we make it to this episode actually airing, we are going to get an opportunity to find out some more details on a very different sort of subject: How Katherine is going to try to keep herself feeling young.

What we primarily appreciate about the sneak peek video below more than anything else is just how it embodies a certain sense of fun. You never get the feeling that lives are in jeopardy at every turn, or that Katherine is even someone who has done terrible things in her life. Instead, Nina Dobrev plays her like a lost / confused young woman, absolutely terrified of having something terrible happening to her. She has been alive for hundreds of years, but this is the first time since very early in that has she actually felt a legitimate need to be afraid of her life. The rest of the time, she knew that it would take a serious arsenal to be able to take her down and put her six feet under.

Now, she has hired Matt (Zach Roerig) to try and be her personal trainer, and this leads to all sorts of great situations. Katherine is hardly in the best shape possibly, which probably comes from there not being nearly as much of a need for her to be during her days as a vampire. She’s not used to having to work hard in this capacity to get what she wants, and spends more time here whining then actually working out. Granted, she could probably get way more done if she just runs into Stefan again, at least based on what we saw from the two of them in this past episode…

What do you think is going to happen long-term for Katherine on “The Vampire Diaries”? Do you think she’ll go the way of Amara, or be a permanent part of the series in the same way that Elena is? Share below! Also, click here to see a lengthier video preview for the episode.
