After a lengthy hiatus, The Vampire Diaries Season 5 returns with a new episode tonight.

It looks to be an interesting return installment, with Katherine out to seduce Stefan and Damon out to resist feeding on Enzo.

But before we look too far ahead, let's take a look back, shall we?

This is a series that has excelled at flashing back to old day (sometimes really old days) in order to surprise viewers with new character information. How did Damon get turned? How did Rebekah come into the picture?

Go back and watch The Vampire Diaries online to relive some of these great installments and see if you agree below with our ranking of the Top 9 Flashback Episodes in TVD history:

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.
