Vampire Diaries Burning Question: When Will Katherine Be Discovered?

The Vampire Diariesbody-possessing Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev) may be good at playing Elena Gilbert, but it’s only a matter of time before her loved ones figure it out, especially with Katherine throwing herself at Stefan every chance she gets. How long until Katherine is discovered?

We kinda, sorta hoped Katherine might be able to hold out a little longer, but we think Katherine’s possession of Elena is nearly at an end. In the synopsis for the next all-new episode (Season 5, Episode 14: “No Exit”) we learn: “After a heart-to-heart talk with Nadia ( Olga Fonda), Matt (Zach Roerig) enlists Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) help to protect Elena, leading to a violent confrontation.” It certainly sounds like a whole bunch of people will soon be on to Katherine!

Now, as you may recall, the last episode of The Vampire Diaries ended with Matt realizing that Katherine was possessing Elena’s body a la that time Gregor did it to him. If Nadia were are cut throat as her dear old mom, she would have cut Matt down then and there, but they shared a threesome in Prague and sob stories about their terrible mothers in Mystic Falls, and she just can’t do it. Also, Matt has puppy dog eyes. We think Matt might find a way to escape Nadia’s babysitting routine long enough to get word on to his friend. Either that, or Tyler comes looking for Matt, as he already has suspicions that Nadia is up to no good. Either way, the truth will out.

If Matt and co. doesn’t figure it out, then we think Team Steroline might. The synopsis tells us: “When Stefan tries to comfort a dejected Caroline, their conversation leads to a horrifying realization.” We think this may be the moment the besties put two and two together to figure out Katherine is possessing Elena’s body a la the time they figured out Elena was sired to Damon. See, these two make a good Elena-related detective team!

In the following episode, it sounds like the cat is finally out of the bag. The synopsis reads: “Stefan, Caroline, and Matt come up with a desperate new plan to save Elena’s life.” Sorry, Kat. We think the gig may be up!

Do you think the gang will figure out Katherine’s ruse in the next episode? Even if they do, will they be able to get Elena back? Sound off in the comments below!

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, February 27 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
