With the TVD writers on lockdown, no spoiler-y details are spilling just yet on what’s to come in Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries. Thus, our imaginations are working overtime, picturing what the vamps, werewolves, and humans of Mystic Falls are up to while we wait out the hiatus.

One of the things we’re most curious about is where Katherine has run off to, and what she’s going to do now that Klaus and Stefan are primed to tear the world apart. She loves Stefan (and is undoubtedly stoked to see the return of The Ripper — let’s face it, she’d probably love to join him in tearing out a few throats), but there’s bad blood between Ms. Pierce and Klaus. On the other hand, we’re sure Katherine has had enough of playing nice in Mystic Falls. What’s a bad-girl vamp to do? You tell us!
