Starting over, in theory, it's simple. You put the past behind you, take what you learned, and begin again. But it's not as easy as it sounds; moving on means letting things go. Things that are: familiar, safe, things that matter — it's not that easy. Someone once said 'you can't go home again'. I hope like hell they were wrong.
Hope's voice-over

Main Cast

Recurring Cast

Guest Cast



  • Antagonists: Malivore (indirectly), The Necromancer
  • Sebastian was sold to a group of pirates by his parents when he was eight years old. The pirates were later revealed to be vampires and Sebastian eventually became known as "Sebastian the Merciless".
  • Hope moves back into her old room, which she now shares with Alyssa Chang.
  • Sebastian meets Hope for the first time in this episode.
  • The Necromancer plans to kill Hope as he fears her power.
  • Chad is revealed to be the second hooded figure.
  • Kym is employed as a new intern in Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted.
  • This episode contains a continuity error. Sebastian reveals in That's Nothing I Had to Remember that he was desiccated during the time of the Roanoke colony circa. 1585 — 1590. However, Dorian remarks that Sebastian has been desiccated for 483 years. As the timeline is currently 2028, therefore he would've been desiccated around 1545.
