Hey! Minor Vampire Diaries spoilers for Season 4, Episode 18, “American Gothic” here!
If you’ve seen the sneak peek photos, promos, and videos for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 18, “American Gothic,” then you know we have two very special guest appearances: Katherine (Nina Dobrev) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies).
Obviously one has the cure, but the Original’s presence in a small Pennsylvania town is a bit more baffling. Regardless, executive producer Julie Plec is very excited for fans to see the episode.
“Not to completely discount my musings about expectations, but this Thursday's TVD is in my top ten all time faves. #thebitchisback,” she tweeted. Oh, she better not be talking about Elijah like that!
But Katherine might be out-matched this time. Normally she menaces her doppelganger Elena (Nina Dobrev), but the new vampire has Original backup in the form of Rebekah (Claire Holt). Let’s just say the blond bloodsucker is less than impressed by Kat. Plus, without her emotions, Elena isn’t exactly quaking in her new boots at the thought of running into her former tormentor.
If we’re headed to a showdown, Kat vs. Elena and Rebekah, who do you think will win? Bex has the strength, but we’ve never been ones to doubt Katherine’s cunning.
