First Look: Vampire Diaries Flashes Back to 1912 With Damon, Stefan and Cassidy Freeman

The Vampire Diaries is delivering one of its quintessential flashback episodes on March 15 (The CW, 8/7c), and we’ve got a sneak peek at the time-trippy, circa 1912 hour featuring a very tough guest turn from Cassidy Freeman.

The Smallville alumna’s beautiful vampire, Sage — who also happens to be a boxer —  will reveal how Damon came to be the bad boy vampire we know and love today. But she’s not the only new face we’ll be meeting. The sure-to-be juicy episode — co-penned by executive producer Julie Plec — will also introduce newcomer Lindsey R. Garrett as Elena’s distant relative and Mystic Falls founding family member Samantha Gilbert.
