the vampire diaries 100th episode promo 'The Vampire Diaries' 100th episode promo: Let's all toast ... to Katherine's impending death?

Thanks to the just-released promo for “The Vampire Diaries” upcoming milestone — the 100th episode! — we know that Katherine survives her fall-finale-ending heart attack. But unfortunately for our favorite sassy survivor, her days are numbered.

That’s right: Katherine’s dying, and there’s nothing our group of ragtag vampires, witches, and humans can do to stop it. So what do they do? They drink, of course, throwing underage laws to the wind.

In the promo, Damon, Elena, Jeremy, Bonnie, and Caroline toast to all the terrible things Katherine’s ever done to them — she has killed more than one of them successfully and attempted to kill the rest unsuccessfully, after all — while Stefan sits by Kat’s side, sugar coating how everyone feels about her impending death. But wait, last we checked Nadia had an idea of how they could save Kat’s life … will she be able to save her mother before time runs out?

Zap2it was on set during filming of the 100th episode, and while we’re sworn to secrecy about many things, we can reveal the episode is going to be one shocking, dramatic hour filled with nostalgic and game-changing reveals. Be on the lookout for interviews with the cast and show runners in the week leading up to the big episode’s airing in January.

Watch the promo for the milestone episode below:

“The Vampire Diaries” 100th episode airs Thursday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
