Elena helps Damon relive his 1970s glory days when ‘The Vampire Diaries’ returns. (Plus, an old friend comes back!)
What’s a girl to do when her brother dies, her house burns down, and there’s an ancient evil fast approaching? Party! (Duh.) On the March 21 episode of The Vampire Diaries, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) decides that Elena (Nina Dobrev) needs “some time away from Mystic Falls,” so he whisks her away on a trip to New York City, where the couple gets a lot more than they bargained for.
I’m talking about a surprise appearance from Rebekah (Claire Holt), who unexpectedly joins the duo in their travels. According to The CW’s official description of the episode, Rebekah is “impressed with Elena’s secret agenda.”
Oh, and did I mention flashbacks to Damon’s life in the ’70s also include the return of Lexi (Arielle Kebbel)? And that Damon and Lexi’s encounter is “complicated?” Get excited, kids!

While Damon and Elena are galavanting in the big city, the rest of the Mystic Falls gang is back home, trying to figure out what to do about Silas. Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) spend the episode trying to convince Klaus (Joseph Morgan) to help them track Silas down, while Bonnie (Kat Graham) is off in her own little world as she “struggles to keep her grasp on reality and do the right thing.”
