There's one more vampire out loose on the streets of Mystic Falls--And it's Alex Gilbert's sister, Elena! After thinking she was actually dead, Alex finds out the truth about her older sister, and that the Gilbert Girls are both vampires now, Alex just now recovering from having her free will taken away, and then feeling abandoned, shied away from everyone and everything that made her who she was, but after dying as a vampire and being brought back to life because of her link to Klaus and Elena becoming a vampire, she doesn't think she has a choice except to go back into her old life--with with a Petrova family curse looming over their heads, threatening not just their whole lives, may be it romantic, emotional or physical, but their best friends and family too. Maybe that's why they were cursed with two blessings of the Salvatore Boys, and then being torn apart. They were cursed from the start, and now they know why, but can Alex and Elena be there for each other forever when it's hard for anyone of them to know how they truly feel? Is it all just the curse, or the sire bond, or is it something more? Who will they end up with, and who will they know who are their true friends in the end?
