The glamorous clothes. The handsome GIs. The supernatural drama! If the eighth episode of The Vampire Diaries aimed to pleas with its nostalgic vignettes of love and war in the 1940s, then it certainly succeeded. Not only was the evening packed with suspense about the whole “sire bond” mystery, but Lexi returned in flashback scenes, Tyler became a hybrid ruler (in a scene very reminiscent of Simba’s ascent to power in The Lion King), and the Salvatore brothers shared so many heart-rending glances and conversations that we cried ourselves a river. Another aspect we loved? The breathtaking tunes!
