Season seven of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES finds those closest to Elena Gilbert striving to redefine themselves in the wake of losing her. Some recover, while others slide back to their darkest selves. Lily takes advantage of this rocky emotional terrain and works to drive a wedge between her sons, even as she loses control of her volatile family. As the Heretics take up residence in Mystic Falls, Matt (Zach Roerig) will stand up for the humans, while Bonnie’s fighter instincts harden as she spends more and more time with Damon. Alaric hits rock bottom before finding new hope in an impossible supernatural mystery—which could either be his salvation, or the ultimate test of Stefan and Caroline’s love story. And looming over all the present-day suspense, flash-forwards to three years in the future will show glimpses of a horrific supernatural threat with profound consequences for our heroes and Mystic Falls.
