Halt! Don’t read if you haven’t seen The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 23, “Graduation.”

It may have taken a little longer than normal for us to get this Vampire Diaries poll together because we were half sobbing from sadness, half desperately trying to come to grips with what happened. Bonnie (Kat Graham) is still dead, Stefan (Paul Wesley) has a doppelganger — and it’s Silas — and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) is now human. Wow.

For a while, the cure bounced around between Damon (Ian Somerhalder) — who wanted Elena (Nina Dobrev) to have it — and the baby vamp — who tried to give it to Stefan. Being the good guy he is, Stefan (not his evil twin, Silas) let Elena keep it to do with it what she pleased.

Instead of ingesting it herself, Elena jammed it into Katherine’s mouth just as her doppelganger was about to murder her. Doppelgangers. They’re the worst.

Elena told Katherine to enjoy her human life, but we didn’t get to see much beyond that. If anyone has a lot to adjust to when it comes to going from vampire to human, it’s the centuries-old bloodsucker. It will certainly be interesting to picture Kat without her compulsion!

Do you love where this story is headed, or do you prefer Lady K with her fangs?
