Never count Katherine out. For much of the 100th episode of "The Vampire Diaries," she was on her death bed, ready to go at any time. Her daughter, Nadia, had a plan that could allow Katherine to take over someone else's body. So while the gang was reminiscing all the ways in which she ruined their lives, Katherine was planning the next one.
She convinced Elena to be there in her final moment, and it was then that she completed the spell that would allow her to switch bodies with someone. Just like that, Katherine was in Elena's body, while Katherine's body simply expired.
When her daughter called to ask if it worked, Katherine replied, "Of course it worked. I’m Katherine Pierce. I survive.”
The episode ended with her doing her best Elena impression in the mirror. Something tells us things are going to get crazy in Mystic Falls!. Of course, according to the Traveler possession, Elena is still in there, too, so it's going to be the battle of the doppelgangers inside this one doppelganger body.
"The Vampire Diaries" heads into its next 100 episodes, Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
