  • FOUND YA, KATHERINE

    The Vampire Diaries "American Gothic" Review: Pennsylvania Double-Dutch

    The hunt for the cure has spanned the northeastern Atlantic corridor this season, traipsing from the magical forests of Canada to the urban jungle of New York City to, this week, the Creamed Corn Capital of the Keystone State.

  • Episode Summary

    Elena and Rebekah take off to track down Katherine and end up in a small town in Pennsylvania, where Elena has an unexpected run-in with Elijah. Stefan and Damon worry about Elena and try help her, but her behavior makes it clear that she doesn't want their help. Damon doesn't know how to react when Stefan reveals a startling new plan. Back in Mystic Falls, Caroline reluctantly agrees to help Klaus, who now recognizes Silas' powers.

      Seriously, I hate the bad Elena!!! She totally needs to take the cure, I can't stand this character anymore!

      I love Klaroline moments, Klaus and Karoline were made for each other!

      Kathrine and Elaija together??? Oh I wanna see this happening!
    • one of the best TVD episodes

      Positively one of the best TVD episodes. so much character development for Kat, Elijah,Klaus and Rebecca. Nina dobrev was AMAZING, she played 3 characters here, "Kat, dark Elena, and Elena trying to be kat. people complaining about no action , HELLO?? TVD neva has any physical action. its all about the intense moments and dialogue, and this episode amazed. hope this isn't the last we see of KAT and Dark Elena.



      however!!! NO BONNIE again WTF??, why do they not care about this Character?, its messed up!, maybe its because she's the only visible minority character too that i feel this stinge more than everybody else. but i have come to notice a general disregard of African american characters throughout the CW shows. i honestly think they should right her OFF if they don't care about her this much. Kat graham is a beautiful talented actress whose character is always the "Key" to ALL their storylines and yet she can't even have a descent backstory, love story or crisis of conscious story. its dispicable TVDmoreless

      Definitely one of the seasons best episode with great scenes between Klaus and Caroline, the doppelganger duo with rebecca as a special touch on the caking and Elijah is back, one of my favorite characters of the show. This show was awesome and the ending was even more amazing! I love the new bad-ass Elena. :)

      American Gothic was a perfect and very entertaining episode of The Vampire Diaries. I really enjoyed watching because the story was well written and full of character development. I loved how Elena and Rebekah made Katherine comply to their demands. Itwas awesome when Elena took Katherine's place to meet an important friend. Klaus has major problems and Caroline played a great part in helping her. Katherine was genius as usual. Nina was magnificent in both roles. I liked the ending and how everything played out. I look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless
