FYI: We are not okay. We went from marveling at Katherine
Fierce Pierce’s sassy prowess and remarkable resourcefulness to being a bit repulsed by her obsession with survival. Honestly, just when we think she can’t possibly ruin poor Elena Gilbert’s life anymore than she already has, we are gravely mistaken. In the course of just one TVD episode, not only did Katherine maneuver her way into Elena’s body permanently, but she also turned Tyler against Caroline by blurting out the news that Care Bear had sex with Klaus, literally tore out the heart of the Traveler who helped her complete the passenger ritual, and stamped all over Damon’s love and affection. In fact, Miss Pierce shredded the poor guy’s soul to bits and then strutted away with a naughty smirk plastered on her imposter face. Thanks to her, we are in desperate need of Matt Donovan hugs, chocolate, and some melancholy tunes to curl up to as we weep the night away. Luckily, whether you want to wallow in misery after Tyler broke down in front Matt, stew in anger over Katherine’s deplorable actions, or bask in the sweetness of Stefan and Caroline’s friendship, The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 12 soundtrack features the perfect song that caters to each of your moods.
