TVD 3.22 Alternate version, in which Katherine spies on Mystic Falls.
Katherine had left Mystic Falls for a while but she had eyes there. She had compelled people to repport to her every move in the cursed town. So when she learnt about Alaric being turned into a super vampire she knew she had to do something. Klaus life at stake meant hers and the Salvatores lives were in danger. The solution was simple she had to take down Elena, but she was so far away from Mystic Falls, no time to pack, she left right away and ran as fast as she could.
When she finally arrived she was exhausted and found Damon next to Alaric’s dead body. She didn’t know for sure they were safe but it was too late to do anything anyway. She just remained hidden while staring at Damon, thinking that if she had to die he would be the last person she sees.
Her phone vibrated and she picked up “Elena is in the hospital, she is alive”. If Alaric was dead and Elena was alive it could only mean one thing, Elena was a vampire. How would Katherine compete with Elena forever for the affection of Damon. After everything she did, she knew Damon hated her, yet she had never really stopped loving him, she was just too proud to admitt it.
