What was New York City like in the ‘70s? We’ll soon find out on The Vampire Diaries

Damon (Ian Somerhalder) will be our tour guide, according to what Julie Plec tells Entertainment Weekly. The show will flash back to the bell-bottom era, but don’t expect a disco inferno.

Based on some casting spoilers, it sounds like the scene will be a little punkier. “Damon relives a time in his life in the ’70s when he was not so well behaved,” says Julie Plec.

Ah, Damon’s misspent eternal youth.

Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon, and Rebekah (Claire Holt) will also road trip to modern day NYC.

We’re not exactly sure what they’re doing there, but our guess is searching for the villainous Katherine (Nina Dobrev) — and hopefully buying some of those “I <3 NY” shirts for everyone they left back in Mystic Falls.
