Are you in an “Empire State of Mind”? The Vampire Diaries is heading to New York City, and, to quote Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) state of mind, it’s the city that never sleeps. So who’s in the most deadly danger in Season 4, Episode 17, “Because the Night”?

 

Ostensibly, the reason for the road trip is to get the newly emotionless Elena (Nina Dobrev) out of Mystic Falls, where her reckless snacking is sure to get her noticed. But Damon also wants to track down Katherine (Nina Dobrev) and the cure.

 

Elsewhere, Bonnie (Kat Graham) is still having trouble discerning fact from fiction. It probably has something to do with the fact that Silas looks like Shane (David Alpay). The witch wants to do the right thing, but she has the creepy immortal whispering in her ear. It’s probably too early for Bonnie to start murdering people for his final sacrifice, though.

 

Frankly, we think some NYC-ers might be in the most danger. Elena’s flipped humanity switch has nearly led to the death of a random motorist, an unknown cheerleader, and Caroline (Candice Accola). That willingness to kill escalated pretty fast, and we’re not sure Damon can keep an eye on Elena and her insatiable hunger the whole time...

 Do you think Elena will kill again?
