The Vampire Diaries' 100th episode, called "500 Years of Solitude", aired recently. In it, Katherine (Nina Dobrev) appeared to have given up on life as she lay on her deathbed. But, in the final moments of the midseason premiere, Katherine decided that she wasn't letting go just yet...

Working with Nadia, Katherine decided that she wanted Elena's young body, and simply went into Elena, which seemed like a very The Vampire Diaires kind of thing to do, and potentially a helluva lot of fun.
Now, Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec has been talking to THR and revealed some tidbits about what's in store for the CW show. She said:
In the beginning, we're reminding the audience that Katherine used to just be a human girl who accidentally got pregnant -- and losing that baby, or having it taken away from her, was the catalyst for the rest of her life and the very thing that turned her into the person that she is. Coming off something so intense and learning that she's going to die, we loved that idea of kicking off the episode with what felt like a celebration.
When asked whether or not Damon let go of the power Katherine has over him, Plec replied:
Damon thought he was punishing Katherine because she deserved it and when all is said and done, Damon got a little bit of a lesson in an ugly vengeance and came across the other side realizing that he just needs to let go and move on. Her death gives him that opportunity. Unfortunately, he doesn't realize that she's still kicking, that he's still around to make his life as miserable as ever.
And when questioned on the big twist at the end, taking Elena's body, Plec commented that:
All I can say is if Katherine Pierce has her way, Elena Gilbert will never surface again, but it's a little complicated. We'll have to see how it plays out... Things are going to get really tricky. She's going to shake a lot of things up. She's going to do some damage. It's not going to be pretty, the tornado that is Katherine, but it's going to be a lot of fun.
