"Of course it worked, I'm Katherine Pierce."
In true Vampire Diaries fashion, the milestone 100th episode ended with a huge twist. Just moments away from death, Katherine (Nina Dobrev) decided to use the Travellers' spell on her doppelganger Elena allowing her to live another day.

Death, love, heartbreak, flashbacks, body switches, resurrections — a lot has happened in 100 episodes of The Vampire Diaries.
When the CW series premiered in September 2009, viewers were introduced to protagonist Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), a journal-writing high school teen who had just lost her parents. Soon she fell for Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley), who she thought was the brooding new guy in school. In reality, he was a century-old vampire captivated by her, a girl who looked exactly like his one-time love, Katherine Pierce (Dobrev), who is also a vampire. Stefan had also just returned from his hometown of Mystic Falls where he reunited with his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) after spending decades away.

Our top moments of the week:
12. Most Brutal Setback: After nearly dying trying to save a baby from a fire in the fall finale of Chicago Fire, viewers are surprised to see Casey alive and well and acting like nothing ever happened. His physical wounds may have healed, but the emotional toll is brutal. Moments after helping a hostage escape from a robber during another fire, Casey takes the bad guy to task and punches him to a bloody pulp. Yeah, that's definitely not part of the job description.
11. Safest Ending: On the buttoned-up season -- and likely series -- finale of the low-rated Hostages, Ellen saves the president's life and...

Damon Salvatore is heading down a dark path — and he might destroy his relationship with Elena along the way.
In what was an eye-opening episode of The Vampire Diaries last week, Elena (Nina Dobrev) learned some of the history behind the Augustine vampires, including the fact that her boyfriend Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was locked up and tortured for five years. While his anger upon escaping was certainly reasonable, Damon revealed his revenge was to kill every generation of Whitmores, with the exception of one person per family, which also happened to include Aaron (Shaun Sipos)'s parents and aunt. In the final moments of the hour, Damon found himself alone in the cell while Elena was trapped in the lab alongside Damon's former cellmate, Enzo (Michael Malarkey), who had been presumed dead.

The Vampire Diaries comic book
Get ready for a whole new way to feed your Salvatore addiction, folks! Starting Thursday, DC Comics will begin releasing chapters of a digital comic based on The Vampire Diaries. "The first issue is going into the mythology behind vervain," previews Colleen Doran, who's writing the tales on an alternating schedule with fellow comic-book contributor B. Clay Moore. "I've always wondered how they got all of the vervain out of Mystic Falls...it's a really common plant, what happened? Since there's never been an explanation, I came up with one."
