The long hiatus is over! It was only two weeks, but we’ve missed The Vampire Diaries.
The show returns in style tonight, April 18, with Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You.” It’s Mystic Falls High School’s prom, but Elena (Nina Dobrev) isn’t feeling very emotional. She doesn’t even want a date to the dance.
However, both Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) show up on her doorstep — keeping their plan to flip her humanity switch under wraps. She’s gone over a week without killing anyone, and they want to keep up the “no murder” streak. Whether or not she actually does in some of her classmates, Elena is particularly nasty in this episode.
Caroline (Candice Accola) has two dates as well. She, Matt (Zach Roerig), and Bonnie (Kat Graham) are making it a friend prom. Rebekah (Claire Holt) also makes it to the soiree without being daggered, though there’s a catch with her attendance.
There will be lots of interesting dance pairings, and we hear Bonnie — after being Shane’s and Silas’s plaything all these months — gets some badass moments.
Fill your punch glass and don your corsage! It’s prom night in Mystic Falls.
