‘Tis the season of merriment and miracles and — let’s face it — Mystic Falls has plenty of them! (Miracles…not merriment that is). In honor of all the scary close-calls that ended well, and the release of one of our favorite new books The Probability of Miracles, we’re celebrating with a week honoring the best Vampire Diaries miracles. And today’s #miraclesweek award goes to….Katherine Pierce finally confessing that she is capable of loving someone other than herself.
Don’t get us wrong — we adore Katherine’s sass. After all, despite her conniving, bitchy ways, girlfriend knows that all a vampress needs in life is a good dance beat, as many lovers as there are weekdays, a killer pair of pumps and a ripe neck to bite into.
However, Kat is selfish. She hates sharing her pints of blood almost as much as she hates making her diabolical plans public. And when it comes to risking it all to save an innocent person’s life (ahemElenaahem) Katherine is usually the first to blurt out “Take them, not me!” Katherine’s safety and welfare come before anyone else’s. (Obviously.) As Stefan revealed to Elena in Vampire Diaries season 2, “Katherine doesn’t care about anybody but herself. She never has. She’s incapable of love.”
That’s just how Kitty Kat rolls…or does she? Because, in an episode appropriately titled “Memory Lane,” Miss Katherine uttered four shocking words we never thought she’d ever cough up: “I love you, Stefan.” (Followed by even more endearingly mushy proclamations, “We will be together again, I promise.”)
So there you have it — a cold-hearted, blood-sucking vamp queen is more than capable of love. And that’s what we, in Mystic Falls fanland, like to call…a miracle!
