Were you too busy groaning over your obliterated March Madness bracket to watch The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 18, “American Gothic" last night? (There goes our money for the office pool.) Well, you missed a doppelganger showdown!


It’s OK. The episode is available on The CW’s site or you can get it from iTunes here. So why should you watch it? Well, we just told you! Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Katherine finally come face-to-face. You know you want to find out why the vamp vixen decided she just had to have the cure — and was willing to kill Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) to get it.  

What else can we tell you? Caroline (Candice Accola) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) share many scenes together, and he is shirtless in most of them. Oh, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, another dashing vampire shows up in a fine suit.

If all that wasn’t enough to convince you, we don’t know what will! Get thee to The CW and watch on. How else will you be ready for Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You”? It’s all about prom!
