‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 7 spoilers: How will Lily cause trouble for Ian Somerhalder’s Damon?

tvd -When the seventh season of “The Vampire Diaries” premieres on The CW on October 8, we are going to see what is for the most part a very different sort of Mystic Falls than anything that we have seen to date. After all, the town will have been taken over by Heretics, with Lily Salvatore leading the way.

Family drama seems to be very much a theme of this show, and by the time the second episode of season 7 rolls around on October 15, let’s just say that we could end up seeing politics become very important as Damon has to figure out how to work alongside his mother in a less-than-welcoming way:

“When an impulsive decision by Damon (Ian Somerhalder) threatens to unravel a carefully negotiated deal between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Lily (guest star Annie Wersching), he has no choice but to make amends with his mother before things spiral further out of control. However, Lily remains one step ahead and carries out a harsh plan that hits Damon where it hurts most. Elsewhere, after returning to Whitmore Collage, Alaric (Matt Davis) turns to Bonnie (Kat Graham) for help with a mysterious and potentially dangerous artifact he has obtained, while Matt (Zach Roerig) is forced into making a risky life or death decision. Meanwhile, Caroline (Candice King), who finds herself a pawn in Lily and the Heretics’ plan for retribution, uncovers a shocking detail about Stefan’s past.”

We feel like this synopsis is further proof that Candice Accola has formally changed her name professionally now that she is expecting, and it may also suggest that Alaric and Bonnie are going to get an interesting arc this season. Could he be the love interest that we’ve been hearing about for her? We know that it may be a character we’re already familiar with, so we are not ruling it out for the time being.
