It’s hard to outrun a supernatural vampire hunter, which seems to be what the Salvatores are learning on “The Vampire Diaries” Season 7. After last week’s trip to New Orleans, Stefan (Paul Wesley) is still on the run. He and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) will search for ways to stop Rayna (Leslie-Ann Huff) in episode 15 of the CW drama, but they quickly realize that their options are limited.
Stefan and Valerie (Elizabeth Blackmore), pictured below, will look for a magical herb that can keep Stefan hidden from the hunter. In last week’s crossover with “The Originals,” Freya (Riley Voelkel) used something similar, but she apparently didn’t have time to create more than a small jar of the mix before the younger Salvatore skipped town.
Damon won’t let his brother do all the work though. He comes up with a plan to take out Rayna, but it won’t get off the ground. “At The Armory, Bonnie (Kat Graham) makes a shocking discovery about Rayna that brings Damon's plan to a screeching halt,” the synopsis teases. They’re running out of ideas, and Damon is going to be frustrated. In fact, it seems like he is ready to leave all this drama behind.
“As the season's middle chapter draws to a close, Damon's desire to take himself out of the game ramps up as he races to complete unfinished business with Stefan and Bonnie,” the summary reveals. It looks like viewers can expect the show to make a time jump soon. At the beginning of Season 7, “The Vampire Diaries” started their flash-forwards with Damon waking up in a coffin three years in the future, asking if Elena was awake yet. In the trailer for episode 15, titled "I Would For You," it seems like he is getting ready to go into the box soon. Watch the trailer for “The Vampire Diaries” Season 7, episode 15 below:
Also catching up to their future timeline are Stefan and Caroline (Candice King). The two will have a chat this week while Caroline is presumably still in Dallas with Alaric (Matt Davis) and the twins. The conversation “leaves Stefan questioning their future together.” The flash-forwards have already revealed that Caroline is engaged to Alaric, so Steroline shippers know it’s only a matter of time before the couple splits. It looks like Stefan will move on too. A sneak-peek video from episode 15 shows some sparks between him and Valerie. Watch the clip at Zap2It.
Elsewhere, viewers will see Matt’s (Zach Roerig, below) hatred of vampires rise to a new level. The cop wants to “truly take a stand against the vampires of Mystic Falls.” But he’ll have to find a way to do it without getting himself killed.
“The Vampire Diaries” Season 7, episode 15 airs Friday at 9 p.m. EST on the CW.
