The latest episode of “The Vampire Diaries” (TVD) Season 7, Episode 3 had everything rolled into one – a flashback, a flashforward, an origin story and even a pregnancy! Read below for the full recap:
It turns out, “TVD” fans, the Heretics are not the only people to watch out for this season, Julian seems to be a very dangerous ally and foe that Damon and the gang should definitely watch out for. A flashback to 1863 showed Julian’s first appearance in the life of Lily because it was the time when she was about to leave for Europe.
However, before Lily left with Julian she asked Valerie to check on Stefan and Oscar to check on Damon. Oblivious by that time, Stefan was devastated thinking that he was the reason his mother died. On the other hand, Damon was rebellious but luckily Oscar got through him.
Going back to the Stefan-Valerie story, which is really interesting and a revelation this episode, Stefan loses his virginity with her and he was totally falling for her but Valerie couldn’t stay much longer. Julian had to pull her away because they are leaving and Valerie somehow made a promise to Stefan that she will come back for him. Oh and Valerie told this story to Caroline.
When Valerie left she sent him letters telling him to wait for her and Stefan did but she never came back for him. Valerie really didn’t want to go to Europe anymore now that she’s met Stefan but if she doesn’t, Lily wouldn’t go as well, so she had no choice but to leave. Julian had to take her amulet of witch power and had to beat her so hard – and in turn, killed a Salvatore baby. YES, SHE WAS PREGNANT WITH STEFAN’S CHILD!
It’s been 150 years and Stefan claims that he’s not mad at Valerie for not returning but somehow those expressive eyes show us that it bothers him. He went back to the bench where he used to wait for Valerie and Valerie showed up. She sat beside him and told him the story of how she would always go to that spot in her 1903 prison world. She also told him how Julian told Lily that she was robbed and beaten and found her like that. Lily healed her with her blood but she didn’t want to live anymore so she took some meds and drowned herself in a bathtub and that’s when she became a heretic. In fact, she was the first of her kind.
When Caroline was freed, she asked Stefan if he still has feelings for Valerie but Stefan said that things have changed. While all of these shocking stories and revelations are happening back home, Bonnie, Damon, and Alaric were chasing Oscar. Damon wants to trade him for Elena’s coffin and at the same time, Bonnie wants Oscar to take away her X visions. Oscar doesn’t need to be captured, anyway, because he’s pretty much up for cooperation.
It was until Oscar asked for the Phoenix stone and that’s when Bonnie realized that Alaric didn’t destroy the stone. So they went for Oscar, knocked him out and retrieved the Phoenix stone. Bonnie warned Alaric that Jo’s spirit may not be around anymore, but Alaric took her to the morgue and shows her Jo’s body.
Damon called Lily to tell her about Oscar and said to give him back Elena and he would give her son back.
