That is the big question and once again we discovered a deeper betrayal that marked the history of the doppelgangers. We met Qetsiyah, who returned back from the other side. In the end, she had a surprising story to tell.
FateThankfully, Stefan is back, but he got caught up in Quetsiyah's business with Silas. She revealed that the fates of the doppelgangers are forever entwined, which means that outsiders like Damon or her were always supposed to watch the people they love with someone else. It definitely planted a seed of doubt in Damon's head. To be honest, I'm not really a fan of the whole concept of star-crossed lovers, which is why the story of a jealous lover seeking revenge is not exactly very interesting to watch. It also puts a negative spin on Stefan's and Elena's history together, because they seem to be drawn to each other not out of their own choices and free will, but because of destiny alone. The same would apply to Katherine and also Tatia, who had a child with another man (probably another Stefan lookalike). We will see how Damon will take this news in the future.
HighlightsKatherine was particularly delightful to watch and her interaction with Elena changed slightly, especially after Elena saved her. Her stint with humanity might just work out.
