Rebekah (Claire Holt) isn’t afraid to get physical on The Vampire Diaries. Just last week she showed a grubby concert-goer who was boss when he dared to touch her golden locks. (Please enjoy the GIF below.)
In a clip from Season 4, Episode 18, “American Gothic,” the Original sister is showing her tendency for violence once again. She’s run into Katherine (Nina Dobrev), and it seems the doppelganger has been busy compelling an entire town to like her. “It’s really more sad than funny,” Bex tells Kat.
The feeling of dislike is mutual, and Katherine is dubious when she learns that Rebekah wants the cure for herself, so she can have a normal life again. “Are you really that dumb or just naturally blond?” Ms. Pierce snarks.
It seems Rebekah is willing to let that little joke slide, but when Katherine reminds her that the cure will only take away her immortality and not “everything else you hate about yourself,” the older vampire decides she’s had enough.
She easily crushes a few bones in Kat’s hand when the Salvatore brothers show up, breaking things up before any real damage is done. Something tells us the fight is far from over, though.
