While everyone celebrates Katherine’s death and says she’s deserving of this fate lets take a moment to reflect shall we?
Katherine once was human. She had family. She had innocence and she was happy. She made the mistake of getting knocked up, lost her child and was shunned because of it. As a human she had the unfortunate encounter with Klaus and Elijah. People say she was so awful for lying to Trevor and manipulating in order to turn, you’re right, what a bitch, how dare she feel the desire to save herself rather than serving her neck straight to Klaus on a platter, how dare she want to live, what a bitch.
Even turned though Katherine knew the consequences of her actions and had to run because of it. She was always on the run. Over the years she met up with the Salvatore brothers and caused some damage. How she toyed with them was wrong, but they knew what they were getting themselves into, especially Damon.
Damon can hate Katherine all he wants, but Katherine gave him the ability to love, she showed him that with the right person you could love so strongly, so powerfully and allow it to consume you. Sound familiar? He found that with Elena.
Yes Katherine has done deemed worthy class act bitch acts, but it’s always been in order to survive. Running 500 years from Klaus, centuries old but never really even living. Everything she did was to survive, and if casualties laid in her wake, it was nothing but simple collateral damage, at least in her eyes.
Does it annoy me that she pretty much body swapped with Elena to live and pretty much try to hop on Stefan’s dick? Yes, I would have accepted it more if she had done it to finally get that real chance with her daughter. I still feel the writers of the show did this to make us hate her to the point were we wouldn’t flinch over her death.
Sending Katherine to hell still has me shaking my head, because I’m trying to understand what was so wrong on her part that she wasn’t deemed good enough for the other side. Kol and Lexi were able to make it to the other side but Katherine wasn’t? Last I checked you’re sent to hell even if you kill one person, one person mine as well be hundreds because it’s still just as bad and just as sinful.
Katherine didn’t choose herself this time, she chose her daughter, she had been given the opportunity to run, but she didn’t she chose her daughter. Katherine chose death thinking she’d be going to the other side with her daughter, but instead she’s sent to hell. Yes people are saying she will own the place, but this is hell, or the Dark Dimension, Katherine will end up losing a part of herself because day in and day out she will be tortured, beaten, harassed, and she will lose her damn mind. Katherine was terrified when Damon locked her in the tomb, now she’s locked up again, in total darkness and with no hope.
I am not happy with the way the writers chose to do this. Katherine has been a core character and her exist was wrong. Why couldn’t they have ended it with her and her daughter walking off to the other side together, finally starting their lives, instead they send her straight to hell and ax her off completely.
Katherine Pierce deserved more.Don’t fret though because when the Mystic Falls Gang die aka the Vampire’s they’ll be joining her, and if the Originals somehow end up dying it’ll be a reunion of sorts, I bet Klaus will even be reunited with Mikeal considering he’s the monsters that even monsters are afraid of.
I watched that entire speech and to me everything she said to everyone excluding Damon was her sly way of saying I brought entertainment to the party and though you hate me I made your lives better.
Tyler: Pretty much her saying he would have been a nobody after all Katherine had the werewolf curse enacted because she needed a wolf. Tyler was just at the start your regular run of the mill jock/asshole who enjoyed using the word douche.
Caroline: Katherine telling Caroline she’s better as a Vampire and I agree because during the first season Caroline was your typical cheerleader only focused on popularity and being Queen Bee, she only cared about herself, and now look at her.
Matt: Gave him a compliment about being the good by, but did it in her usual flirty nature
Jeremy: Just shows how much she still desired family, probably missing her sister, but once again she ended it with an insult to him.
Stefan: Yes she said she loved him, yes she said his love was real but no it wasn’t she compelled him in 1864 not to be afraid. Love is loving that person fully, not just one part of them. She ripped away his choice. Her love for him sure it was real, but her speech were was the part were she said sorry I was so obsessed with you to the point I body swapped with your ex in hops to lure you into bed?
Damon: When Katherine turns her attention to Damon she stays in her place, her gaze trained on him as if they are having their own showdown. Katherine herself knew Damon could be the one with the dagger because she’s well aware of how many times she’s hurt him.
But I never got to say what I needed to say to you
Even after this she pauses for a moment, watching his expression and her expression softens for a moment.
Katherine’s tone is not taunting, it actually sounds sincere as if she’s finally allowing herself to be honest with him for a change.
I’m sorry that I turned you
I’m sorry that you didn’t get to die as a forgotten nobody on a bloody battle field
This right here is what makes Katherine’s speech to Damon more personal then her’s to Stefan because she is saying in her own way she’s not sorry for turning him, she’s not sorry that she didn’t let him live the rest of his life as a human who later would die and shortly be forgotten. Katherine say something in Damon that sparked her interest and made it worthy of her wanting to turn him.
That your father didn’t get to live another day being disgraced by you
Once again this shows how well she paid attention to Damon. Katherine knew how much of a disappointment his father viewed Damon as, just as her father did with her. She know’s what it was like as a human to be looked down upon.
Damon I’m sorry that I gave your life purpose
Before Katherine, Damon was just another Southern Gentleman, someone stuck in a boring routine, stuck on a merry go round thinking that’s what he’d be doing until death finally greeted him. Katherine changed his life, she brought and showed him an entirely different world. Yes Damon loves Elena, but Katherine was the one who he first learned to fully love, who he was consumed by. Katherine was the one who showed Damon that with the right person you can have something and feel something as powerful as that.
I’m sorry that you are who you are because I’m the one who taught you how to love
Katherine Pierce was the woman that ignited the flame in Damon Salvatore to the point were over the years he didn’t allow himself to get attached to other women, because he didn’t feel passion, drive and desire with those other women, until Elena finally came along, he felt that and more and that’s why he allowed himself to once again feel that, and that’s why time and time again he has such a damn difficult time walking away.
Damon does give a simple nod of his head, his expression you can see in his eyes he’s trying to let her words sink in, but he won’t admit shes right so instead he does his usual Damon-ness and tells her I’ll see you in hell, which logically speaking is what show happen because he’s just as bad as she is.
Without Katherine, Damon would have died on the battle-filed or some other meaningless and non important death as a human. Without Katherine, Damon would have never encountered Elena. Without Katherine, Damon wouldn’t be the person he was and has become.
Sorry I haven’t been on, not feeling all that great. I have a couple of questions in inbox regarding the episode I’ll get to those.
No, I did it once and I didn’t find it as thrilling as I thought and hoped it would be.
Also I told you I called it saying it would be Stefan daggering Katherine and she’d say her cliche I love you crap, boom. Is it crazy to say she sounded more sincere in her speech to Damon?
It amuses me when the psychotic SK fans feel the need to butcher DK to the point of re-blogging. I know this couple well, and if the writers had a clue of what they were doing with Katherine they would have dived deeper into the rs of her and the Salvatore brothers.
I’m writing a book, well no lets not call it a book because I’m not publishing it, but it’s pretty much an in-depth look on their time in 1864, ending with her “dying” and starting up again with her return. It’s how I believe things should have played out, and no, that does not mean I suddenly brush off her feelings for Stefan, it’s the exact opposite.
Can you imagine if the scene had been in DK’s favor
"I’m sorry for what I put you through, but I’m not sorry for loving you those 145 years Damon because I did….you always said everything out of my mouth was a lie but you didn’t pick up on this one’
Then she’d give a back story that would make all our heads spin, she’d now be standing in front of him
"so what’s it going to be Damon, kiss me or kill me, we both know you’re NOW only capable of one.”
It must be wrong of me to want a verse where Damon is dead, sent to hell considering it is Damon and he runs into you know who…..
Oh come now stop with the tears of sadness, so the bitch had a fleeting moment of sincerity and now suddenly that means I’m suppose to give a crap.
I really can’t understand why all the long faces when I said see you in hell I meant it, I’ve done my bad deeds, my fair share of sins I’m definitely not going to be greeted by the big guy upstairs when and if I do meet my demise. Safe to say pretty much everyone in the Justice League of Idiots excluding Matt has killed one or two people, last I checked that’s worthy enough of sending you straight to hell. In retrospect I suppose you could say we’ll all be uniting in hell, hopefully they have alcohol.
