Lily Salvatore has been confirmed as a mainstay of The Vampire Diaries season 7, but details on what the manipulative Salvatore mamma will be up to are still pretty thin on the ground.
All we know so far is that Annie Wersching will have a recurring role and that her heretic vampires will play a major part in whatever mischief she will make in Mystic Falls. Those who are hoping that Lily's motherly instincts will kick in might be disappointed though, she is pegged to be a major antagonist for the season by The Wrap.
I'm pretty excited to see how Lily Salvatore develops, especially considering how Damon and Stefan will be in the spotlight now Elena is resting in her 70 year slumber.
In a previous interview with Digital Spy, Wersching teased that she was 'onto Damon's lies' and I can't wait to see if she has a unique insight into her son's evil ways as he regresses to a darker place. Not to mention exploring the Ripper connection that Lily shares with her younger son, Stefan.
