Stefan learns more upsetting facts about Valerie in TVD season 7 premiereCW

Vampire Diaries season 7 is getting interesting with each episode as the battle between Damon and Lily is intensifying. The sustained fight between the heretics and Bonnie Bennett, Alaric Saltzman, Caroline Forbes and Stefan Salvatore has gone so bad that it seems that one of them would certainly not make it to the finale.

Also, a lot of things are happening between Stefan and Caroline, due to Valerie's mysterious past with the younger vampire brother. According to the synopsis, the next episode will reveal more details about the Phoenix stone. Bonnie will warn Alaric about the danger of the stone, as he is planning to revive Jo by using its magical powers.

Unaware of Valerie's evil plans, Steroline will dig deeper into her past and try an unravel some bitter facts. The elder Salvatore, meanwhile, will realise that it is time to say final goodbyes to Elena and would try and move on.

Here is the official synopsis of TVD season 7 episode 5 titled Live Through This:

After realizing the downward spiral he was on, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) decides he's going to turn over a new leaf and that his actions moving forward will do right by Elena. Lily (guest star Annie Wersching) prepares for the arrival of a special figure from her past, while Enzo (Michael Malarkey) stands by not sure what to expect. Elsewhere, at Caroline's (Candice King) urging, Stefan (Paul Wesley) comes face-to-face with Valerie (guest star Elizabeth Blackmore) and learns some upsetting details about her past, while Enzo and Bonnie (Kat Graham) find themselves at odds when they're forced to fend off a violent threat. Finally, when Bonnie learns some disturbing information involving the Phoenix stone, she is forced to confront Alaric (Matt Davis).
