Previously on The Originals: The Mikaelsons decided that enough was enough and opted to create a truce between the rivals of their city. Not completely trusting that their enemies would give up the hunt, Klaus and Hayley asked a witch to cast a protective spell over Hope. The spell had unforeseen side effects though and as a part of the protection it aged Hope seventeen years. Now the Mikaelsons are dealing not only with lurking suspecions but also with a baby that is suddenly a teenager.
Previously on The Vampire Diaries: The attack of the heretics on Mystic Falls was swift and vicious, forcing the residents that survived the initial attack to flee. They only knew of one place they'd get the help they needed despite some disagreements. The timely intervention of an angel residing in Mystic Falls ensured that the sleeping spell over Elena was broken with no damage to either Bonnie or Elena. The entire group is now attempting to blend in at New Orleans and is working on starting over there.
Previously on Supernatural: During the fight for Heaven, several souls managed to escape or were pushed back down to Earth. Although things in Heaven have stabilized now, the angels opted to allow a few souls to remain on Earth, those that they felt still had a purpose to fulfill. Meanwhile, Sam and Dean Winchester are dealing with some serious issues of their own. In an attempt to take a break and go back to semi-normality, the brothers decided to investigate some strange reports coming from The city of New Orleans.
Previously on Teen Wolf: The Beacon Hills group has managed to survive Deucalion and his Alpha Pack. They also managed to make it through the fight with the Nogitsune. For the moment, things seemed to be quiet - a regression to the mean. However, seemingly out of nowhere came a spree of deaths.
Just as Scott's pack was about to begin investigating, a visit from Lydia's wandering aunt, Grace Ryder, interrupted their plans. Grace revealed to her young niece that she wasn't the only surviving banshee in the family. Rather, Grace led an entire coven of banshees, and were looking to take her with them, away from Beacon Hills. She warned Lydia of an oncoming storm. Only death awaited those who stayed in Beacon Hills. With the deaths of many supernatural creatures escalating, Lydia urged Scott and the pack to run, but Scott was stubborn. This was his home, and he wasn't about to abandon it! Upon further investigation, it seemed to be a consortium of hunters, though little more was known about them. Select members of the pack noticed a unique tattoo on the forearms of the group but before any further investigation could be done, the pack was cornered and nearly killed , driving Scott to finally take the advice of the banshees and leave, the pack in tow.
Allowing Lydia to lead them, they ended up in New Orleans, Louisiana, with a wave of death looming before them and trailing behind. Will they survive?
We are set post Season Six of The Vampire Diaries, Season Two of The Originals, and Season Ten for Supernatural. We're set mid-Season 4 with Teen Wolf.

Last time on Escaping Our Shadows…
There was a strange increase in the supernatural population in the city of New Orleans. These creatures reigned in from all over the world. There had been a strange aura looming of the town ever since the birth of the youngest Mikaelson, but there was also a threat that had come not long after. Many had no idea why they had been drawn here. Others took to the hills before even questioning why. Many evil groups descended upon the festive city. Taking as many lives as they could in the process. One group of rabid werelions led by one very angry werelion fell fast at the hands of a few local cats. A necessary fight that informed the world that not only did were-creatures exist, but they weren’t only wolves, they came in different species. A long line of secluded species was now brought into the light.
The next group, the only group that had been able to corner their enemies, were The Knights of the Order. An organization of hunters, whose mission was to wipe out a large population of supernatural beings in order to restore a balance that put humans back in charge of their lives. The families that ruled the organization sent out groups to clear out the most populated towns, Beacon Hills and Mystic Falls being a couple of them. This caused both Scott’s pack and Elena and her friends to flee their homes. The Knights had also planned to bring on as many other hunters as they could find. This included the search of the Argent family, which had once been part of the system before removing themselves after taking on a new mission in life. The Winchester brothers, along with several other solo hunters were also in their sights. It had seemed that the Knights were so desperate to recruit these hunters, they stooped as low as brainwashing one to help convince others. It was a good plan until, well, it wasn’t.
It was a sad time for everyone when they learned that the Knights were only pushing them to the real battle grounds. Fortunately for the groups, the Mikaelson family had recently brought on a new family member, Hope. She was strong on her own, but with the extra help of her new friends and the groups banning together they were able to lessen the enemies’ numbers. However, this did not stop the few that wanted nothing to do with the Mikaelsons and their way of working. Individuals like Marcel Gerard wanted to battle the Knights on their own. Marcel had even taken it upon himself to find a way to get stronger. After searching high and low he found that he could become a creature that not even the Mikaelsons could defeat. It all started with Lucien Castle being given an enhanced version of the immortality spell that had turned the Original Family into vampires. With this information and knowledge that he could not fall from power, Marcel too became an upgraded original, even stronger than the Mikaelsons.
Since the Knights had retreated before he could return, Marcel turned his anger on the only people he knew he could ruin, the Mikaelsons. The majority of the family had fallen from his incurable bite, while Hope was whisked away against her will and Hayley tended to the bitten, Niklaus was the last to see Marcel’s new strength. He was knocked from his throne by the new beast and forced to face all his living sires and enemies as they were the jury to his fate. A ruling for him to suffer for an eternity by the Blade of Tunde was cast on him. This left the city and all in it to Marcel’s reign.
Four years have passed in the Big Easy since these events took place. For many, that is quite a long time; for others, it seems like only yesterday. In that time, there was never a dull moment. Marcel’s seat as king had been threatened on many occasions, though none were able to tear him down. That is, until a coven of black magic witches rose from the shadows with a secret weapon. They kept this weapon hidden until it finally came time to remove Marcel from power. Hope Mikaelson made her reappearance, allying herself these new witches. With the coven’s help, the young girl strengthened her magic, delving deep into the darkness. With this new expertise, she was able to overpower the false king and take him as her captive.
Hope now wears the crown of New Orleans, but her trials are far from over. She still searches for her father, who has been very well hidden by the stubborn former king. The witches stirred as the Ancestors whispered the dangers of this coven coming into to power from the Ancestral Plane. An air of unease settles over the city, as many realize they may soon be under attack, once again.
