We are REALLY looking forward to this episode for four reasons: 1) Lexi. 2) New York City. We love when the gang gets a chance to go somewhere besides Mystic Falls and Elena should have plenty of people to snack on there without being noticed. 3) Elena is going to be rocking a fierce new hair do in the big Apple. Work it girl! 4) Our beloved Klaus is in it. No further explanation needed there.
A few things we’re not so excited about? Well, for one, the fact that Rebekah is in NYC means she may have ruined a perfectly romantic getaway for Damon and Elena. Lord knows they need some time alone. Although, now that Elena has no humanity, she may not be into the whole romance hoopla anyway. She does, apparently, have a “secret agenda” that impresses Rebekah. Yeah… that can’t be good. The fact that Rebekah’s in NYC also means that she’s not with Stefan. We were really wanting to see their relationship go a little further. Who knows? Maybe it still will.
This episode will air Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 8:00pm Eastern on The CW. It was directed by Garreth Stover and written by Brian Young and Charlie Charbonneau.
