She may have served her purpose as a villain for most of the time she was onscreen on The CW’s supernatural series, but it can’t be denied that Katherine got things done. There’s a reason she survived over 500 years even though she was being hunted by an Original vampire the entire time: She was smart, she was logical, and she was efficient.
Unfortunately, that meant Katherine had to step on more than a few people to stay ahead of the game, and that caught up with her on her deathbed. Instead of going quietly into that good night (a.k.a. passing through Bonnie), she was violently sucked out of this world and thrust into a darker existence that we’re calling The Dark Side (as opposed to the lighter Other Side that all other supernatural souls have gone to).
So while Katherine is going to be suffering for her sins, what better way to honor her departed soul than with a supercut of all her best moments?
Watch Katherine’s best moments below:
