A war of the witches! Steroline cuddle session! Tom Avery getting his syrup on! Oh, and roasted Travelers. (Shudder.) Clearly, from Enzo snapping Stefan 2.0’s neck to Markos making his grand appearance, The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 17 was chock-full of drama. Better yet? It was also teeming with amazing music that helped amplify each intense scene.

Dive in below to tune into this week’s TVD playlist, based on songs from “Rescue Me”!

Shake” by The Head and the Heart: Plays at the beginning of the episode, when Elena wakes up and realizes a. she and Damon had mind-blowing sex post breakup, and b. she needs to get ready for a conference with Jeremy’s guidance counselor, Mrs. Douglas.

Do I Wanna Know?” by Arctic Monkeys: Plays when Elena and Damon argue in the school hallways. He presses her against a locker and confesses that he’d kiss every square inch of her body right then and there, even with the whole minivan-driving population Mystic Falls listening to their passion-fueled romp.

Girls Chase Boys” by Ingrid Michaelson: Plays while Tom Avery gobbles down waffles at the diner and Caroline imagines him choking on them so that she wouldn’t have to kill him.

Weekend Warrior” by Eytan and The Embassy: Plays when Damon indulges in a “breakfast of champions” at the Mystic Grill with Matt and Tyler.

Walking Backwards” by Leagues: Plays during Jeremy’s conversation with Liv at the Mystic Grill (when Matt and Tyler try to eavesdrop). She tells him all about the witches versus the Travelers — aka the ugly stepsisters.

Far from Yesterday” by Amy Stroup: Plays at the end of the episode when Stefan and Caroline cuddle at the junkyard, Bonnie leaves Jeremy a voicemail, and Damon respects Elena’s decision to move back to Whitmore College and wishes her safe travels.
