Flashback to a Mad World rendition of the first time Elena met Stefan. It was eerie, reminiscent and odd and it was quickly revealed as Elena having a dream. That was the main theme of the episode. Elena and Stefan having dreams of each other, flashing back to old memories. Heck these dreams aren’t just occurring at night, but also while Elena is awake and doing things. Dreams of a completely different life one where Elena’s parents never died.
