The Vampire Diaries season 7 will return with another interesting episode this week on CW and the official description of episode 18 reveals that Damon Salvatore is determined to save his younger brother Stefan's body and soul after the Phoenix Stone was destroyed by Nora and Mary-Louise.

Vampire Huntress Rayna has caused a stir in the Salvatore brothers' lives and now Damon looks up to his old friend Alaric to retrieve his brother's body and soul before it is too late. After the Phoenix Stone debacle, Stefan's body is under the control of a ruthless vampire and the trailer of the upcoming episode shows the vampire trying to strike a deal with the elder Salvatore brother in order to save Stefan.

"I know you won't leave me alone until you get your brother's body back. So do me one small favour, and we both get what we want," says the vampire who has occupied Stefan's body.

Here is the full synopsis of episode 18 titled One Way Or Another:

Determined to capture an escaped vampire named Ambrose, who may be the key to getting Stefan (Paul Wesley) back safely, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) heads to Memphis with Alaric (Matt Davis) in tow. However, reluctant to step back into his former vampire hunting ways, Alaric makes his unwillingness to participate clear, while revealing the truth about the past three Damon-less years of his life. Meanwhile, in the psych ward, Bonnie (Kat Graham) meets a young woman named Virginia (guest star Aisha Duran), who provides her with some valuable information about why The Armory may be after her. Finally, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) takes matters into his own hands when he learns some devastating news from Rayna.
