TVD thoughts, non-spoilerish
Am I the only one that remembers how in early Season 2, Katherine could 'rip (either Salvatore) to shreds and get her nails done at the same time'? Because from the way Damon and/or Stephan have been manhandling her post-hiatus, it looks like if the TVD writers have forgotten.

I have noticed. I wonder if it is partly because of Kalus' control over her.

My friend said she was acting more like Elena in the episode where Klaus was in Rick's body and making her stab herself.

It's started from when she gets out of the tomb: remember the slapping hand scene with Damon that ends with him on top of her? Or later that night when she tries to seduce him and he throws her out of his bed literally? Contrast that to Katherine after she walked into town and how both brothers had to come at her in the "Kill Kat" episode and even then it was with difficulty? That's what was so appealing about her: she was not only way craftier than they were, she was also physically stronger and now afraid to throw people around when she felt like. Nowadays... not so much. I wonder if it isn't a deliberate tactic to play up some future Katherine/Damon or Katherine/Stephan possibility... turning the love triangle into a love square. Of course, to make it realistic, they'd have to make Katherine vulnerable - emotionally and physically. /sarcastic

I was reflecting on that the other day actually. Katherine feels way less threatening but I don't think it's a deliberate move. I think that's because they introduced more powerful vampires, aka the Originals. I think Katherine has been shown as weak ever since Elijah compelled her into staying in the tomb as if she were a mere human. i think they shouldn't have mixed up the two stories so soon. It makes Katherine look weak.

I don't think it's because of the future love triangles. Remember when she threw Stefan in the bushes so easily when she tried to escape in 2x17? That was just three episodes ago. No, IMO Kat has been undermined by Elijah and Klaus who are the real deal and make Kat look like an angry kitten compared to them...

I agree that Elijah and Klaus have definitely served to put Katherine's strength in perspective, so to speak. But in this case, Katherine appears weak even to the Salvatores, which shouldn't have anything to do with the Originals: after all, Elijah's compulsion over her broke with his death. She should still appear to be more powerful than the vampires younger than her and she did appear to be more powerful than Isobel - but both Salvatores have pushed her around post-hiatus in ways they didn't even come close to at season's opening.

I think the writers have forgotten everything but Damon's manpain. (I'm pretty sure they've also forgotten the bit where Damon is eagerly taking "How to be a Good Vampire And Effective Killer" lessons in the one flashback.)

Oh haven't you realized it, yet? Damon was compelled to go along with all those things. He's just in denial when he tells Stephan in Season 1 that he was never compelled by Katherine. Are you up to speed yet? Because a certain scene in 1x21 makes me more convinced that my theory about Katherine's emasculation (:P :P) is true.
