Road trip! After having a really rough go, poor Elena () is finally able to get some R&R in the Big Apple with her boo, Damon (). Flashbacks and vampy times ensue. Damon's obviously had some dark days, but we're hoping that this episode's look back to his life in the 1970s will have him enjoying the Studio 54 days. But - surprise! - his hedonism is most likely counteracted by Lexi (). I can never really tell if she's helping or ruining everyone's fun.
Meanwhile, BFFs Stefan () and Caroline () want Klaus () to help them find Silas. Trust issues, obviously.
Other than that, Bonnie () has no idea what's going on and struggles to keep her grasp on reality, while moonlighting as a wayward pop star.
