Rule number two, toast to the glory of her impending death. Rule number three, if you come across something that's worse - which you will - repeat rules one and two. She pretended to be buried in a tomb for 145 years while I waited for her lying ass.See more »

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Katherine is dying, but Nadia come up with the plan to put Katherine's mind into her own body. She gains the help of the others, by threatening Matt's life, and makes a deal with the Travellers. In an episode of twists and turns, we become accepting the death of Katerina Petrova; however, that is not what Julie Plec and the writers had planned for Katherine Pierce. Returning cast members for the 100th episode include: All current Main Characters Joseph Morgan as Niklaus Mikaelson Daniel Gillies as Elijah Mikaelson (Illusion) Claire Holt as Rebekah Mikaelson Kayla Ewell as Vicky Donovan Sara Canning as Jenna Sommers (Illusion) David Anders as John Gilbert (Illusion) Bianca Lawson as Emily Bennett
