Katherine';s appearance will throw a wrench into the love triangle between Stefan, Elena and Damon, and the other residents of Mystic Falls must choose sides as they fall victim to a new breed of danger. New and unexpected friendships will be forged, allies will become enemies and hearts will be broken.
In traditional Vampire Diaries fashion, the finale of season 2 offers plenty of twists and turns, topped with a few cliff hangers for fans to dwell on until next season, the most intriguing of which will be the role reversal of Damon and Stefan.
Missing in action this week was Matt Davis's Alaric, although hopefully that will be rectified soon. There is so much tasty goodness packed into the episode that it seems unappreciative to complain about one character being absent.
