“We’ll Always Have Bourbon Street.” Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 8 has such a nostalgic title. It almost makes us long for the days when things between Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and Stefan (Paul Wesley) were slightly less complicated. Ah, well. Break out your war bonds. It’s time for a spoiler-filled trip to the 1940s! 

There are flashbacks! Uniformed Salvatore alert!

We’ll see an old friend in the ‘40s.

And Damon’s old girlfriend.

Elena is still recovering from her night with Damon the next day at school.

Things between them are about to get “complicated.”

The Salvatores decide to test Stefan’s theory about the sire bond.

But is there a cure for her sire bond? And how does it work anyway?

Meanwhile, Caroline is deciding how to support Tyler’s new hybrid-bond-breaking venture.

The hybrid is starting a revolution! It’s very heroic.

Finally, the writers of the episode, Charlie Charbonneau and José Molina have some fun info.
