As the war turns, the people of Agg Town forge weapons to help protect the city from intruding threats. Reign is leading an all out attack against Nail's menions with Lycaon's aid and Solomon and Bonnie use a sacrifice to open the gates to push the forces back to the renewed Other Side.
The group explores the restored Fall’s Church, but they are still sad that Damon, Stefan and Elena have died. Nadia is reunited with her family, which has hired Caleb Smallwood to work on their yard. He says that he’s Tyler's cousin and that he’s been staying with Tyler’s parents since Tyler “ran away.”As the friends leave to pick up Alaric and his friend, Dr. Celia Connor, at the train station, a rose that had appeared at Elena's doorstep cuts Bonnie. The blood pouring out of it spells "Celia" on her arm. At the train station, Celia is almost killed when her scarf gets caught in the train door, but Stefan saves her by ripping the scarf. The shreds spell "Meredith." Meanwhile, on the Dark Moon, Damon crawls out of the mountains of liquified ash. Sage finds him, helps Damon remember who he is, and lets him use the Mystical Elevator to return to Fall's Church. Up to this point, Damon has appeared to everyone in dreams. Reign sees him in his mirror one night, and he tells him that the energy from Inari's Star Ball gave him life. Katherine goes to the cemetery to visit her parents and sees Caleb, Mason and Marshall (in wolf form) who have also lost thier parents.
Vale shows up and throws Caleb against a tombstone out of anger for trying to foil his plot. The two fight as Katherine and the others escape. Later, Bonnie knocks down Mrs. Flowers' knitting, which spells "Bonnie" on the ground. She tries to do a spell to contact Solomon, but ends up in a coma after being overcome by darkness. When Margarette tells Reign, he investigates by letting the darkness take him. His consciousness ends up on the Dark Moon where Damon is. Marshall takes Margarette to the Lockwoods' shed, and they see that Caleb had collected many photos and newspapers about them. They detail both realities - of the events that actually happened and everyone's fabricated memories. Stefan and Elena conclude that the Guardians just changed these, but Caleb can see some of them for what they really are because he is supernatural. He is descended from werewolves and possesses some witchcraft abilities as well as some of the others. Mason and Katherine take Nadia to go shopping, but Nadia sees people from high school and becomes jealous that they have normal lives. Darkness overtakes her, and she passes out after Mason notices a shopkeeper's hair flowing in the shape of the name "Matt." Mason takes Meredith and Matt to the Lockwoods' house to confront Caleb. Matt faints out after he thinks about Tyler's popularity. Caleb says that he deduced that the group of friends was behind his contradicting memories and gave Katherine the rose, hoping to get closer to her so that he could find out where Tyler went.
At the boarding house, Mrs. Flowers says she believes that a phantom that is feeding off of jealousy may be the culprit. They perform a spell to summon the phantom. Meanwhile, Katherine meets Bonnie and Solomon in the land of the flowers that can hold special spells. Matt also arrives, and Katherine tells them to look for the way out, which they find. They see Sage and Drake in the nexus room and run to the Dark Moon, where Damon and Reign are battling misty blue figures. They all start fighting them, and suddenly they end up in the garage of the boarding house. Damon says that the creatures are of the original phantoms, which are much more powerful than an ordinary phantom. The original phantoms were trapped on the Dark Moon by the guardians, but Kat and Marg destroyed their prison, and the phantom of jealousy followed them to Fall's Church. The phantom tells everyone why they should be jealous of others, pitting Stefan and Damon against each other in a brutal fight. As the rest of the group admits their jealousies and casts them away, weakening the phantom, Bonnie and Solomon make the brothers reconcile. Reign throws a candle at the phantom, setting it on fire, and Marg reaches into the creature's core and pulls out the rose inside, destroying the phantom. Reign gives Marg his blood to heal her burns due to her magic temporarily ran out as the fire department arrives to put out the fire. Everyone then looks forward to the future.
