First Look: The Vampire Diaries' 1940s Trip Means Salvatores in Uniform, [Spoiler]'s Return!

We think you’re going to really enjoy this gallery: The Vampire Diaries flashes back to 1940s New Orleans in the Dec. 6 episode (The CW, 8/7c), and we’ve got a sneak peek at Stefan and Damon as World War II GIs — and the return of a much-missed character!

After Stefan shares a suspicion about Elena with his brother, the two head to The Big Easy to investigate. They need to find someone who can remember what happened during their last jaunt there in 1942, which involved Stefan’s pal Lexi (Arielle Kebbel), a flame of Damon’s, Charlotte (Madeline Zima) and some very handsome uniforms.

Check out the gallery below, and then hit the comments with your thoughts.

  • That is so not fair. 1940s Soliders, definitely the sexiest uniform area… and I mean damn.

  • I bet this ep will have some of the most screen shots ever. Come on, Salvatores in uniform.

    Can’t wait to see what Damon’s “heartbreaking decision” will be? I’m afraid it’s going to be related to the suspicion about Elena or for some reason Damon is forced to pick between Elena & Stefan.

  • It’s sort of unfair, the brothers can have whole Elena free episodes but when was the last time Elena was free of the brothers? I stand by assertion that if Elena was Damon/Stefan for a 3-4 episode story, it would do wonders for her character and the show.

    • THIS WHOLE SERIES is about her. Every single storyline ends up being connected to her somehow. So I think thats why they try to have arcs or branches of storyline where the primary focus is on someone else but connected to Elena somehow.

      Case in point: Last season the episode called The End of an Affair was about introducing Rebekah, revealing Stefan/Klaus previous friendship and the origins of the ripper however at the end it all tied down to the necklace, which was in whose possession? Elena. Everything ends up being connected to her anyways.

  • Mehn am so Team Salvatore now……and please you guys shouldn’t try making Damon τ̅☺ ever choose between Elna ans Stefan….because he sure will choose Stefan and that will spoil the movie…..Elena should find another LOVER, if possible.

  • Yay! I wanna see this episode! And Lexi is gonna come back!

  • Every time I see Arielle Kebbel, I think “Oh look its Katherine Hegel”. Speaking of look alikes associated with Vampire Diaries, I know Revenge will eventually be looking for a son for Conrad Grayson played by Henry Czerny. If by some miracle Ian Somerhalder becomes available, he could easily pass as Czerny’s long lost son.

  • Team Stephan all the way. Does no one remember how in the begining damon could care less if elena died or not? How many people hes killed? How he only ever thinks of himself? Even when he is doing something good its only for his best interest? He deserves notjing hut eternity alone.
