Four years into her reign, Ashley Valentine finds herself still reeling for answers about her husband and son's gruesome murders. While she is struggling to move on and pick up the pieces of her life, she finds love in the most unexpected place, and the arms of her husband's long lost half-brother, Jeremiah. While Ashley is oblivious to the relation, and her connection with Jeremiah grows stronger, she is ready to take the big step of bringing her daughter, Amira, home until a text sends her world right back into turmoil. At that point, Ashley decides to unleash her alter ego, Calypso, for one last try at finding Dalton's killer; even if it kills her. Struggling to find out what happened to his best friend, Brandon soon discovers that while focusing on Dalton and Ashley, he has let his own relationship with Shay fall apart. While Shay becomes increasingly jealous and suspicious of his relationship with Ashley, he finds himself making drastic moves to get back the peace he once had. While Brandon finds himself making some tough decisions, he finds that the threats aren't over, and realizes not everyone has his best interests at heart. When lines get crossed, lies get exposed, and paths cross, both Ashley and Brandon find themselves asking the exact same questions: Who killed Dalton and Trey, and why?
