“In grace and beauty and sheer fascination, they were alike. But where Katherine had been a white kitten, Elena was a snow-white tigress.”—The Struggle
After re-reading about the frightening encounter with Katherine in The Fury, we couldn’t help but think back to this quote from The Struggle. You could say that Katherine and Elena’s battle in The Fury was kind of a cat fight (literally) but when Elena first formally meets Katherine, we thought: Wait, who is supposed to be the “white kitten” here? Katherine certainly wasn’t.
If you can’t recall, Katherine makes her entrance in exactly the way Elena was previously described—as a white tigress … a terrifying white tigress. This might just be ANOTHER example of how in The Vampire Diaries “Nobody is what they seem.” What do you think Katherine is really up to?
