Katherine's secret takeover of Elena's body isn't a secret any more. Caroline and Stefan put all the clues together, but what can they do about it? In "Gone Girl," they will call on their friends -- minus the vampire-sucking Damon likely -- to find a way to bring the good girl Elena back. Can she be saved?

"They know!" Katherine's time in Elena's body looks to be almost over. Or, is it? In order to try and save Elena, Katherine has to be be stabbed with the Traveler's Knife or so they believe in the above clip.
Can they get Katherine to come to them? Looks like she can't stay away. Who will kill Katherine? I'm not sure she'll ever truly go away. Perhaps, she'll jump into another body. Whose body? Nadia's?
"Gone Girl" sneak peek
"She is brilliant." Yep, Katherine outsmarted them. Stefan lays it all out for Damon. His actions in response to "Elena" breaking up with him were for nothing. Katherine tricked him and his life is once again destroyed because of her.
There's a plan! Can't wait to see what that is.
