I always smile whenever “The Vampire Diaries” does their themed school dance nights. Geez, have they ever gone well? I say they’re just gluttons for punishment.
Executive Producer Julie Plec echos that sentiment in her weekly Producer’s Preview. “Do Not Go Gentle” in her words, “There’s a lot of crazy stuff in this episode that’s really, really, really bad.” I hope she means a good bad. She usually does!
From what is shown here and in the previews, Elena takes Stefan to the dance, which I’m sure will be a very sore spot for Damon, Tyler and Caroline are still on the jealously kick but this time Klaus shows up to make it interesting, and Bonnie shows up with Jamie to the dance and sees that Jeremy is back. Love triangles galore! Plus Not!Rebekah is working with Not!Alaric to wipe out all the vampires. Oh yes, the dance is the perfect setting for that kind of mayhem.
The official synopsis per The CW:
WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER – Alaric finds an unexpected ally to guide him on his dangerous new path, while Damon and Meredith (guest star Torrey Devitto) try to figure out what their next move should be. At the school’s 1920s Decade Dance, Bonnie asks Jamie (guest star Robert Ri’chard) to go with her and, at Caroline’s suggestion, Elena asks Stefan to be her date. Caroline is pleasantly surprised when Tyler shows up at the dance determined to sweep her off her feet, but Klaus does his best to come between them. The dance takes a deadly turn when Damon and Stefan realize they need the help of Matt, Jeremy and especially Bonnie to undo a spell that could prove devastating for everyone. Josh Butler directed the episode written by Michael Narducci.
Here’s the Producer’s Preview:
Here’s the preview photos. This looks like it’s going to be one very busy night. Out of all of them, I think Jeremy and Matt are having the most fun.
Happy episode everyone! Only two more until the season finale.
