As per usual with The Vampire Diaries, there were many gasp-out-loud moments in Season 3, Episode 6, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Tyler (Michael Trevino) feeding on that girl? Caroline (Candice Accola) will not approve of that meal. And speaking of diets, Mikael (Sebastian Roché) said he doesn’t eat things that are alive. And with that, he took a chunk out of Katherine (Nina Dobrev).

We all know that Kat’s a survivor — she’s managed to elude Klaus (Joseph Morgan) for centuries, after all. So was the vampire hunter who is a vampire just taking a reviving sip of his undead alarm clock or is Katherine really dead? Her hand looked pretty limp at the end there, but come on. This is Kat has nine lives, right?
