Going Retro: The Vampire Diaries Photos from "Unpleasantville"

at . Comments

As previously teased, The Vampire Diaries will head back to the 1950s on its January 28 episode.

Elena, Stefan, Damon and company will attend a retro-themed school dance on that new installment; although, as the photos below depict, Damon won't exactly trade in his all-black outfit for a jean jacket or rolled-up white t-shirt.

Other Vampire Diaries cast members get into the spirit, though. Click on the pictures below for a sneak peek at the episode "Unpleasantville," including your first look at Sean Faris in the role of Ben...

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
