A rival wolf pack puts more pressure on the Rusakova family by making a bold move against Jessie in hopes of pushing Pietr beyond the cure. Realizing the impact of Pietr's change, Alexi rushes to find a permanent solution to the life sentence lycanthropy brings in hopes of also remedying an unexpected side-effect that may finally destroy the relationship between Pietr and Jessie. Unsatisfied with his role in the pack, Gabriel is determined to be rid of Pietr permanently. Meanwhile, at Junction High, the company's meddling with the school food may have stopped but it doesn't mean things have gotten easier--it is still high school. With the enrollment of the rest of the pack's pups, new bonds are made and tested. But Dmitri's influence is far-reaching and even pacifist Gareth must make a dark decision or risk the destruction of everything he holds dear.
