The relatively quiet and suburban town of Mystic Falls had never anticipated the raging battles that have now enveloped the residents, both new and old. Lives are being risked and lost, friendships and loves are tested beyond their limits and the few humans are beginning to pick up on the strange activities being covered up around their very homes. Klaus is willing to go to any risks to get his message across to Stefan and anyone associated with him and Esther further develops her plans to get rid of her children once and for all. With the unexpected return of Jeremy Gilbert to town, sides are taken and extremes are reached. When you're on the brink of losing a war, who will you turn to? When you could lose the ones you love at any given moment...who will guide you home? Mystic Falls can never be the same again.
