The Vampire Diaries: Should Katherine Die?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

SPOILER ALERT: The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 10 concluded with Katherine collapsing down a flight of stairs, her life very much at risk.

DOUBLE SPOILER ALERT: The trailer for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 11, which airs January 23 and marks the show's 100th installment, makes it clear:

Katherine is still alive.

But she's on the verge of death and the TVD fan base seems split.

Some viewers are sick of a character who has been used as a storyline device far too many times, while others believe Katherine is the funniest, most entertaining resident of Mystic Falls at the moment.

Where do you stand on Katherine? Do you hope she lives in the new year? Sound off below:

If Katherine dies i don't think i would watch TVD anymore


plz don't kill her


if katherine would die ... i dont think i would continue watching TVD


plz,plz,plz,plz,plz,plz,plz,don't kill Katherine. I'm a great fan of her .


If she dies, the show dies... not just for me, but for many others too. They would lose a lot in terms of ratings and sassiness that she brings to the show. And they should stop using the "Nina Dobrev is exhausted" excuse, it's her job, she gets paid A LOT to do it, so I don't feel like it's right of her to complain.


Option #3: Katherine is great, BUT it's time for her to go.




third alternative she goes into a hot girls body as a traveler she must not stay in Elenas body

@ newuser

Or she uses Elena's body!!!! Omg

@ Katerina27

i wonder if i'll love her just as much if she goes into someone else's body. i always considered her the hotter, prettier, smarter, stronger, more confident, generally better version of elena.


Please do not kill Katherine!!!!! Everything about the show all goes back to Katherine. She's everything good and bad and all the in between. She's the female Damon. I love her.


Katherine is the BEST character on this show at any given moment. I never tire of her. If she were killed off, a part of the show would die with her. She's important and I think it would be an epic mistake they wouldn't recover from if they went that way...


No way should she die. She's sexy yet vulnerable at the same time. Did you see how HAPPY she was during those moments with Stefan? Seriously Stefan at least she actually APPRECIATES you. If I was Stefan I'd be on that all night and would never get off. Witty, hilarious, strong, sexy, yet vulnerable. In short, she is easily the best character atm.
