The Vampire Diaries returns to the CW tonight with the whole new episode. On the last episode Elena’s new outlook had everyone concerned, leading Stefan and Damon to agree that going back to the normal routine of high school would be the best thing for her. Caroline was pleasantly surprised when Elena decided to rejoin the cheerleading squad, but her pleasure turns to shock when Elena’s behavior proves dangerous and she proceeded to eat the other team.
Not giving up on their search for the cure, Damon and Rebekah worked together until his unwanted advice caught her off-guard. Did you watch last week’s episode? We did, and you can get up to date before tonight’s show, here!
On tonight’s show realizing that Elena needs some time away from Mystic Falls, Damon takes her to New York City, where he lived and partied hard in the 1970s. When Rebekah also shows up in New York, she’s impressed with Elena’s secret agenda. Flashbacks reveal Damon’s hedonistic life in the underground club scene and a complicated encounter with Lexi (guest star Arielle Kebbel).
Meanwhile, Caroline and Stefan try to convince Klaus that it would be in his own best interest to help them track Silas down, and Bonnie struggles to keep her grasp on reality and do the right thing. Garreth Stover directed the episode written by Brian Young & Charlie Charbonneau.
The Vampire Diaries Season 4 episode 17 “Because The Night” airs at 8PM tonight on the CW.
