Check out TV Guide’s Keck’s Exclusives “first look” from The Vampire Diaries flashback episode 2.09 “Katerina”, where we will find out how Katherine became a vampire back in 1492. Julie Plec also confirms that the December 9th episode will definitely lead us into the holiday hiatus, and we’ll see Tyler’s transformation. Thanks to @tvdnews for the heads up.
“We find out how she became a vampire and what led her to become the person she is today — a selfish, maniacal woman who only looks out for herself,” says Nina, who was born in Bulgaria and speaks Katherine’s native tongue. How she’s turned is a big secret, as is the identity of a new menace we’ll meet from the same era, who will journey to present-day Mystic Falls.
