‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season: 7 Episode 7 Recap: “Mommy Dearest”


The gang flashes forward yet again (three years later) to what looks like a rescue. Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) drive frantically to a news studio where Caroline (Candice Accola) apparently works. Disheveled and frightened, Damon walks into an empty studio to a loop of Caroline breaking her broadcast to warn Stefan.


Back to the present, Stefan plans to confront Lily (Annie Wersching) over her knowledge of his unborn child whom Julian (Todd Lasance) terminated to avoid Lily retuning back to her children. Valerie (Elizabeth Blackmore) is confident that Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Jo’s twins are still alive and are inside Caroline. After one failed pregnancy test, Caroline assumes Valerie’s is playing games because she feels threatened by her.Photo: CW


Matt tries to rescue the innocents harbored at the Mystic Falls high school. His theory on the matter is that whomever left them is prepping them for a mass slaughter. Since there appeared to be no evidence of bite marks (just evidence of empty food containers and saline drips), this person has a more organized plan then what they’re used to. In order to save these innocents, the only way to break their compulsion is through magic.


Caroline reluctantly asks Valerie to help. For someone who has proved on several occasions that she isn’t evil, Caroline still feels she is hiding something. Valerie finally informs Caroline that the only reason she knew the spell used to saved the twins is because he used it before to save her own child. Once she put two and two together, Caroline’s wall between her began to drop down dramatically. Enzo (Michael Malarkey) finds himself in a duel between him and Julian. However what he does not know is that Julian’s life is linked to Lily’s.

No matter how much Lily informs her sons of the truth, Damon refuses to believe that her selfishness was a con to save them.  Knowing the outcome of his mother, Damon then runs off to find Julian and kill him. Caroline and Alaric get an ultrasound, as they are still left under the impression that she is not pregnant. Valerie later steps in remembering that for the protection of Caroline and the twins she had been cloaked. After she reversed the spell, boom! Instant twins!

Lily finally realizes what her sons have already been trying to tell her. Once she discovers that Julian had no intention of protecting her life, she teams up with Stefan and Damon to take him down once and for all.
