Despite things taking a downturn for the brothers Salvatore (double fail, boys), Because the Night was wildly entertaining, and perhaps my favorite Lexi flashback ever? Quippy lines, twists aplenty, and fabulous hair — with a kickass soundtrack to boot. Bring on the night…
Previously on The Vampire Diaries, Damon, Elena and Rebekah were in a New York state of mind. Bonnie, on the other hand, was in some other state of mind, and that didn’t really work out very well for anyone. Before you buckle up for tomorrow night’s episode, catch up on Because The Night (EP417) with some recaps.
Here’s Arielle with this week’s TVD Rehash!

THIS POST IS A STICKY. KEEP SCROLLING FOR NEW POSTS.
Flashback time! Damon and Elena head off to New York for a break from the angst of Mystic Falls, an appointment with a hair stylist (looking sassy there, Ms Gilbert!), and to have a good time seeing the band Dead Sara performing live. As for the flashback, we can look forward to Damon partying 70s-style, interesting 70s fashion, and an always-welcome appearance from Lexi. Enjoy!
Once you’ve seen the episode and shaken yourself back to reality, swing by here to rate the new episode of The Vampire Diaries. All discussion about the episode is welcomed and encouraged in the comments of this post.

Quick guide to the poll: Dum dum dah dah dum. Dum dum dah dah dum… have a big, red apple for a trip to the Big Apple. Be mindful, though. Those things tend to be poisonous in supernatural shows.
5 apples = LOVE, 1 apple = MEH.

On this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite at TV Guide, Ian Somerhalder talks about Damon in the 1970s and his relationship with Lexi, as well as his feelings toward Elena at the moment: “Damon gets another side of Elena that really solidifies that he’s not a fan of her current state.”
