Claire, Seth and Justin embark on the final years of highschool but they get joined by an old friend when Alyssa returns to town and as a surprise she has enrolled in SJBS too. Another new student is Chris Saphire, Justin's younger brother. As soon as the first week, Chris gets in trouble though and Justin is forced to use his charms on Anna, the cheerleader who discovered Chris' mischief. This forces Alyssa to think about why she came to the town. She thinks about this while talking about designer clothes with Claire.
When Fall Fest arrives, Justin attends with Anna and Alyssa attends with Douglas despite Seth's best efforts to get the two of them to attend together. It takes many more weeks of matchmaking (and a breakup between Justin and Anna after a mere 3 weeks of dating) untill Alyssa and Justin finally seem ready to have their happy ending with one another.
But their happiness after their first kiss is shortlived, as Alyssa gets information about Liam's whereabouts. The information comes at a prize that Alyssa can't pay and she helps out The Dawsons instead of going with Thomas, despite the prize it takes. Jason and Payton arrive at the location But instead of just Liam they also find Mila in captivity as she has been for the past months. After Mila's rescue, she leaves town to deal with the trauma in her own way. Meanwhile, Alyssa tries to prevent Payton from doing something to Liam. Alyssa tells Liam to leave town and never come back. When Liam arrives at the Millers he is seen as a disgrace, and he is forced to leave and live on his own. Meanwhile Alyssa also decides to turn her back on the Millers, as she chooses for Justin.
Even though Alyssa had expected this to bring issues, she was unprepared for the fallout. More than once she is attacked for being a betrayer, and they have to do their best not to reveal vampires to the rest of the world. Alyssa considers joining the Dawsons, but she decides she has to handle the consequences on her own. But when the people who hate her go after the families of the people she loves, she feels more weak than ever.
After the events of the midseason finale, Alyssa tries to be there for Justin but he shuts everyone out. Alyssa wants to take revenge at the Millers for crossing that line, but she realises soon enough that she can't. Meanwhile Payton cracks under the weight of the grief. She relies on Jason to keep her in a good place. It's a proces of weeks, but ultimatly most of the people recover from the attack on their family.
However the meaning of family shifts soon enough, when Payton is revealed to be pregnant. Payton's pregnancy and Justin's pending depression are very distracting factors for Claire, but she doesn't have to carry it on her own with Mike stepping in to help Justin through finals and with The Dawsons taking of Payton's care. Alyssa also suffers, and surprisingly Dylan is one of the people to remind her what life is all about. Family.
Ultimatly graduation does come, and Claire sees a light at the end of the darkness for the first time since last spring. She starts making plans to go to California, while Justin gets taken away to his aunt and uncle's in Wisconsin. Alyssa stays behind to help out her best friend who is now a soon-to-be father. Her pressence proves usefull when the Anconi decides to step in.
When they attack, they are beaten by the smarts of Payton, who has now regained her powers in order to protect her unborn child. They are victorious on all accounts but one when two lone vampires decides to be heroic and attack a litle while later. Nate is able to protect Payton with his life, and when the Anconi find out they demand justice for the two vampires by claiming another live. Lauren sacrifices herself instead of Alena, and so both Lauren and Nate die protecting the child.
After this tragic loss, Alyson and Dylan move away. James and Elisabeth too realise how limited their protection is. With half of the Dawson coven now gone, the Dawsons come across very weak and May Miller wants to find out what all the fuzz is about. Alyssa is able to prevent a full-on attack, but May is able to get close enough to find out the reason of al the drama and she sets up her plan to break the Dawson-Silverstones.
Halfway through september Alena Lillian Lauren Dawson is born. Elisabeth's medical knowledge saves Payton's life, while Alyssa's focus and clear mind were of big help during the delivery. Seeing as Justin seems to be happy when he holds Alena for the first time, Jason and Payton ask Justin and Alyssa to be the godparents.
