Much like the Spanish Inquisition, Katherine (Nina Dobrev) shows up on The Vampire Diaries when she’s least expected — usually doing the old switcheroo with her doppelganger, Elena (Nina Dobrev). Just as suddenly, she’ll disappear. The last time we made her acquaintance, she was helping bring down Mikael (Sebastian Roché) in Season 3, Episode 9, “Homecoming.” So when will Kat hightail it back to Mystic Falls?

Not anytime soon, according to an E! spoiler. According to the site,” there are currently no plans to bring the vampire vixen back to Mystic Falls anytime soon. While Katherine undoubtedly wants to steer clear of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his Original brethren, we’re taking that spoiler with a dash of salt, since we’re sure the bad girl will find a reason to swap places with Elena at least once before Season 3 is done, and it wouldn’t do to ruin a twist so far in advance.
