Season 2 episode 7 of "The Royals" will take its fans back in time. The latest episode in E!'s original scripted series focuses on the lives of the royals in a manner that's intimate and sans judgement. To be sure, the episode will include some heartwarming moments between Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley) and her daughter, Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park). This certainly is a rare moment in the show's history so far and while this gives fans something to be happy about, Prince Liam will delve into a mission that is both dangerous and life threatening.

According to the synopsis for the upcoming episode, Prince Liam investigates Domino. This motivation to find his late father, King Simon's killer, surfaces after he finds a woman at his birthday party in season 2 episode 6. The young royal remembers her from the night he found the domino necklace dangling on his neck.

In the promo for season 2 episode 7, he finds a crucial clue and asks her what it means. However, she remains unresponsive and it remains to be seen if she can help the prince.

The upcoming episode titled "Taint Not Thy Mind, Nor Let Thy Soul Contrive Against Thy Mother" is directed by One Tree Hill actor James Lafferty. In a recent interview with E! Online, he said that season 2 episode 7 preoccupies itself with revelations. Although he didn't mention what details these new truths will reveal, the director said that the episode will leave audiences shocked.

Furthermore, Lafferty said that the latest episode will also focus on the back story of certain characters. This perhaps is a reference to Queen Helena and Alistair Lacey's relationship.

He said, "Every episode of 'The Royals' sort of has that, you never really know what you'r gonna find out. You never really know what cliff you're gonna be left hanging on," reported E! Online.
