HERO TIME — When a group of unwelcome visitors descends upon the Salvatore School, Hope leads the charge to keep her friends safe. Meanwhile, MG uncovers a secret about his mother and Josie finds herself in a dire situation. Alaric, Lizzie and Rafael also appear.
- Antagonists: Triad Industries, Veronica Greasley, Burr, Ryan Clarke, Headless Horseman, and Malivore (indirectly)
- Triad uses Alaric's contingency plan to disable magic at the Salvatore school by using a dark object that was created by the Travelers.
- Ryan misdirects Triad by making them believe that the final key to unlocking Malivore is the Chalice of Arimathea and that is at the Salvatore School.
- Instead, it's a knife stored in a Triad warehouse where they store supernatural artifacts.
- Ryan reveals to Landon that he's to be, as he puts it, a "meat suit" for their father so he can procreate to create a new species.
- Hope learns that she is the loophole that can stop Malivore from returning to golem form as she is a tribrid, a being with the blood of a witch, a werewolf, and a vampire. She sacrificed herself by jumping into Malivore. This selfless act erased her from the collective consciousness.
- Hope has Alaric burn everything connecting her to the Salvatore School including a journal kept by Landon.
- Due to her status as the loophole, the Malivore mud bullet doesn't affect her, her blood healed Josie's wound and she's the only one that remembered about Seylah.
- However as we seen in I'll Never Give Up Hope, she isn't able to destroy Malivore for good, since she hasn't activated her vampire side. Besides, she's still "toxic" to him and every time she'd used magic, he tried to expel her out. This gives to us that the only way to her destroy him for good, is for her to die and activate her vampire side.
- Rafael uses Hope's reverse kyanite ring and becomes trapped in his wolf form. After Hope sacrifices herself and jumps into Malivore, there is no currently known way to reverse the ring's effects since Hope is the only one who can turn him back.
