In season two we meet back with the characters as they try to move on from various events. Payton tries to focus on school in the midsts of her break-up with Jason, while Justin tries to get the mysterious girl out of his head. Seth and Claire's relationship remains going strong with them enbarking on Junior Year. However, a new dimension in their relationship occurs when Seth goes into transition and we get to see a different side of Alyssa.
In the second season, we see a new dynamic and a heavy weight on the Silverstone sisters appear. The long-lost brothers of both Payton and Jason causes a lot of pressure on their relationship, and Claire discovers first-hand the reality of dating a vampire. Meanwhile we discover more about Alyssa, who is trying to keep the lid on a large amount of issues that could potentially be catastrophical if they were all to come out. At the same time, old familiars show up in Waterfall Creek and in her grieving process, Mila makes some mistakes that could effect her friendships.
Claire awakens and the teens of the town try to get the events of the past weeks behind them while preparing for the new school year - their senior year. Mike starts attending college in Florida, and keeps an eye on Mila, who has moved back to Europe because of what happened to Katie.
Justin and Seth start training again for the new schoolyear, and Justin asks about Claire, revealing he still feels guilty for not remembering the stuff Alyssa erased. When he asks about Alyssa next, Seth explains she is complicated. That's when a car rolls up to the school parking lot, revealing Alyssa in it. She walks up to the guys, and announces she is going to attend senior year at SJBS.
Right away, her pressence proves useful when there is another vampire attack. She manages to get Justin to safety, but when left alone with the attacker, Claire freezes and Seth has to take her away. Before he gets away, Alyssa is able to see the face of the attacker.
She asks Claire to do a spell, determining if the attacker and Alyssa are genetically linked, to confirm her suspicion. However the spell turns out differently, and reveals that Claire and her attacker are the ones that are genetically linked. This causes for Claire to look for answers in her family history, and her aunt Lucy reveals that the only answer could have been that Claire's father had a son before he met Lillian. When Claire wonders out loud who this guy, her supposed half-brother, is Alyssa answers, saying his name is Liam.
When Payton finds out about this, she is faced with her worst nightmare, as she doesn't do well with mentions of her father. Lauren and Nate start to notice that she gets isolated and stops attending class. One night, going over memories of when her parents were still alive, Payton breaks down and ends up calling Jason, telling him she needs him, and Jason drives to Portland. Payton lets him in and allows him to hold her until she is calmed down. Afterwards, Payton asks him to stay in Portland, but Jason says he can't because he is to blame for the attack in Waterfall Creek. When asked why, Jason reveals that the attack was ordered by May Miller, his former lover and his brother's current paramore. He predicts May might attack Waterfall Creek more, and states he has to be there to help James. Payton begs him to stay, but Jason ends up leaving, ordering Lauren and Nate to keep a close eye on her.
Claire eventually agrees to Alyssa's attempt at a truce offering, and she informs Liam how they're all connecting, telling him that he is the Silverstone's half-brother. To this, Liam freaks out and tells Alyssa that she is lying, to which Alyssa confronts him with the fact that he specifically was sent out here to kill them. This forces Liam to realize that he was sent on a suicide mission by the people he trusted. He tries to return, to talk to his people and get his mom out if needed be, but Alyssa states that it's too late and that by failing the mission he turned himself into an outcast by the Millers, just like her.
Meanwhile Payton deals with Jason leaving and Liam showing up by getting Lauren and Nate to train her more, so she can go to Waterfall Creek and help if the Millers decide to attack. However when Payton still needs more distraction she goes to the streets, and starts killing vampires, making a name for herself.
Eventually, Alyssa catches news about this and she takes a roadtrip to Portland with Justin. Once arriving in Portland, Alyssa gets Payton to stop the streetfighting, revealing she is no longer subtle and the vampire community is starting to notice. Justin overhears Alyssa and Payton talk about the fact that they can't be with the person they want to be. Liam then shows up behind Justin, and notices his sister and Alyssa so upset. He then walks in, offering himself for Payton to take out her anger on, which she does. In the end, however, she is not able to kill him because he is her brother after all, and the runs away frustrated.
We see flashbacks of the beginning of the summer, where Seth confronts Justin about his abscence, causing Jason and Payton don't go as they prepare for Payton's college in Portland. Then suddenly, Payton has to face one of her biggest triggers when a son of her father shows up, who happens to be a vampire. The pressure proves to much when Payton snaps and she and Jason break up. As he takes off, Claire and Seth make the best attempt to comfort Payton upon their preparations for a new year of school. However, those get put on hold too when Seth appears to be in transition. Claire gets offered the ultimate distraction by competing for Junior prom queen, while everyone else is far from celebrating anything. Payton tries her best to distract herself by training and connecting with Liam in Portland in the first quarter of the season, while Jason also goes through transition in Canada. Payton's help gets inlisted eventually, and Jason is able to make a recovery from the bad cold-turkey attempt.
We get introduced to several town events in the second quarter of the season with the Debutante Parades, as well as Alyson and Dylan's wedding in the mid-season's finale. When Payton and Jason reunite, it quickly shows that neither but mostly Payton is not ready to be with him again. Meanwhile, Mila makes a bad call of judgement and sleeps with Pierre, Payton's cheating ex boyfriend. It strains her and Mike's... something, but they eventually come clean about their feelings for one another and they travel to Europe together at the end of the school year, when they graduate. The beginning of July also marks a new page in Alyssa's book, a darker one this time. After a bold move to show her mother she has spunk, she seeks comfort in Matt, and old friend of hers. He takes advantage of her weaknesses and poisons her, shutting off her humanity and making her do horrible things.
NOT CHRONOLOGICAL : Liam returns to his duties as Claire's guardian, arranging all the paperwork for his little sister. Seth's task is to distract Claire in the meanwhile, and he does so by helping out with the house as much as he can.
The first stone to the new path she takes is layed out when the elders demand a magical gathering. Unlike in season one, this time it's witches and wizards only. The renovation of the Silverstone House causes for a massive gathering of witches and wizards, friend and foe. Neither Jason, Lauren and Claire are happy with what they see, caused by the hand of the elders. When it appears that Liam did not get an invite he makes his displeasement towards the elders clear.
