Vampire Diaries season 7
Lilly reunites with her dead boyfriend Julian by using the red Phoenix stone in TVD season 7 premiere CW

The Vampire Diaries season 7 took a creepy turn in the previous episode when Alaric uses the Phoenix stone to bring Jo back to life, unaware of the fact that her body is actually hosting the soul of a very old vampire who was locked inside the magical stone. As a result Jo has no memories of her past.

The same thing happened to Oscar, who was revived by Damon using the same stone. Valerie later tells him that he did not bring Oscar back to life but instead stuffed his body with another vicious vampire soul.

In the upcoming episode, titled Best Served Cold, Lily will reunite with her long-lost boyfriend Julian after bringing him back to life using the Phoenix stone. She also refers to her sons as her 'enemies' to her boyfriend.

The episode will also focus on Alaric, who is jumping with joy after getting back the love of his life. But there are chances he will realise his mistake of using the red stone and find out that Jo is not his love but a vampire soul who made her body his home.

Here is the official synopsis for episode 6 of TVD season 7: "The After being reunited with her former love Julian, Lily hosts a dinner party to introduce him to Damon and Stefan and to declare peace between her family of Heretics and the residents of Mystic Falls. Damon and Stefan find themselves at an impasse when they realize they have differing views on how to handle Julian's arrival. At the party, Bonnie Bennett and Matt Donovan uncover a strange mystery involving some unsuspecting residents, while a devastating revelation causes Alaric Saltzman to reach his breaking point."

The series will soon introduce a powerful character Rayna, who is a vicious vampire hunter who returns to Mystic Falls to seek vengeance. Her return can be expected during the fully fledged three-year forward track that is now being shown for a minute or two in each episode.
