What's better than seeing two extremely handsome immortal brothers? Flashing back to their grunge days in in a past decade, that's what.

Prepare to swoon, Vampire Diaries fans. Not only does our favorite blood-sucking series return Thursday, Oct. 2 for their sixth season, but we've snagged an exclusive sneak peek at one of this fall's most highly anticipated moments: A Salvatore flashback to the 1990s coming up in episode four!

ETonline was the first to exclusively report that TVD fans would be traveling back to the decade of flannel shirts and jelly sandals, and now we've got even more scoop about why this flashback will be so important. Adding to the awesome, this is the very first photo that proves that Damon will return to Season 6—at least in a flashback. (You’re very, very welcome Ian Somerhalder fans.)

Our '90s time-jump will take place in episode four, which airs Oct. 23, and although we're thrilled to see the Salvatore brothers reunited, we're weary of the "tumultuous time" the episode logline reveals: "When Damon and Bonnie realize that uncovering a time in Damon’s past may provide clues to finding their way home, Damon is forced to relive one of the worst days of his life." Yikes!

Meanwhile in the episode, Stefan is stunned when an unexpected visitor shows up, Elena struggles with post-Damon life, and fans can get excited for a bromantical Alaric and Jeremy moment.
