Were you too busy looking for signs that it’s really spring to watch The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 17, “Because the Night" last night? (We hear a few states are expecting snow this weekend...) Well, you missed vampires in the city!


It’s OK. The episode is available on The CW’s site or you can get it from iTunes here. So why should you watch it? Well, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) head to New York City for some fun. Of course, Damon hasn’t totally forgotten about the cure, and he has some schemes to get info.


Let’s see. What else can we tell you? There are some flashbacks to Damon in eyeliner. And 1970s version of the elder Salvatore certainly had a lot of fun — of the sexy variety. There’s also some fun cartography scenes between Caroline (Candice Accola) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan).


If all that wasn’t enough to convince you, we don’t know what will! Get thee to The CW and watch on. How else will you be ready for next week’s road trip to... Pennsylvania?
