What Happens in the ‘Vampire Diaries’ Season 7 Midseason Premiere? (PHOTOS)
That’s exactly what we’re getting when the CW series returns — on a new night — for the Season 7 midseason premiere episode titled “Hell Is Other People” when we delve into the eldest Salvatore brother’s personal nightmare.
“After finding himself on the wrong end of Julian’s plan to avenge Lily’s death, Damon awakens to find himself trapped inside the Phoenix Stone, tormented by a traumatic experience from his time in the Civil War and forced to face his darkest demon in order to get out,” the synopsis reads.
“On the outside, Bonnie is in a race against the clock to get Damon out before the effects of the Phoenix Stone take over and leave him changed forever.”
Executive producer Caroline Dries has described the episode as a concept episode that’ll have Damon in most scenes if not all of them.
“The episode plunges the audience head first into a not-so-typical Damon mess. It’s a grueling, frustrating, at times even a little hilarious examination of one of our favorite and most damaged characters,” Caroline told Entertainment Weekly. “Turns out that in the murk of Damon Salvatore’s psyche, redemption isn’t easy to find.”
Based on what we’ve learned about the episode and the horrific photos that we’ve seen, it looks like Ian Somerhalder is about to deliver his best TVD performance yet.
The Vampire Diaries Season 7 midseason premiere airs Friday, January 29, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
