"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 continues next week with episode 10, "Fifty Shades of Grayson," and on Friday, Dec. 6, the CW released a new sneak peek teasing Katherine (Nina Dobrev) getting some help as she tries to postpone the inevitable.
As this season of "TVD" has shown, after Elena forced the cure down Katherine's throat, Katherine hasn't exactly been enjoying humanity. Dr. Wes (Rick Cosnett) gave her the diagnosis of, well, old age, as the years are catching up to her and her body is dying. To make matters worse, she can't even be healed by vampire blood anymore because her body rejects it. In this next episode, she turns to Matt (Zach Roerig) for help until she realizes Nadia (Olga Fonda) might be the one who can solve her problem.
The "Fifty Shades of Grayson" clip to the left shows Matt helping Katherine get back in shape, and while he tries to be encouraging, she knows she's not exactly Miss Athletic. However, she hopes that by getting back in shape, she can prolong her death, and when she can't hear something he says, she worries she's going deaf and begins panicking. You have to feel kind of bad for Katherine, but really, human Katherine has been so amusing this season.
"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. What do you think of this episode 10 clip from "Fifty Shades of Grayson"?
