The Salvatore brothers’ love lives are nothing if not complicated, but Nina Dobrev says things are about to get more twisted than ever, thanks to one of her three doppelganger characters intervening. Katherine apparently has a “lingering love for one of the brothers that we learn more about as episodes progress,” Nina recently told HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine. “Almost like Elena has chosen, Katherine has chosen, and we see that unfold.”
So, Katherine’s back on the Salvatore bandwagon? I guess that means she’s gotten over Elijah (Daniel Gillies), which is probably for the best, since he’s all about Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) these days. But the question remains: Which Salvatore does Katherine have her eye on? Is she fantasizing about bath time with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), or would she prefer to join Stefan (Paul Wesley) 0n a romantic Ripper rampage?
Let’s take a minute to consider how this could all play out.
Is Katherine In Love With Stefan?
This seems to be the more likely of the two, especially considering Katherine and Stefan’s history. On the second season premiere, shortly after their sexy encounter, Katherine told Damon, “I never loved you. It was always Stefan.” She hammered that point home on episode 216, informing Damon that she chose to save Stefan’s life over his.
Katherine has also alluded to a Stefan fetish in season five, most notably on the season premiere when she invited him to join her in the bathtub. Granted, she didn’t know that he was actually Silas in disguise, but that just makes it all the more romantic.
My only suggestion to Katherine, if she does decide to pursue Stefan, is not to go swimming with him — as he tends to let his girlfriends drown.
Or Is Katherine In Love With Damon?
While Katherine has never tried to hide her feelings for Stefan, the way Nina’s quote is worded makes me wonder if Kat isn’t switching sides. After all, Katherine already chose Stefan — multiple times — so if she’s making a new choice, Damon would certainly be the likely candidate.
The only snag with this, plot-wise, is that it wouldn’t be as exciting. I mean, Damon is clearly head-over-heels in love with Elena, and he kind of hates Katherine. After all this time, would he really dump Elena for her?
In my opinion, the more exciting outcome would that Katherine is still in love with Stefan — and now that he’s single, tries to go after him! We’ve already seen shades of jealousy from Elena over Stefan’s relationship with Tessa (Janina Gavankar), so just imagine how she’d feel if he started hooking up with her doppelganger.
