1. The War Has Just Begun

He is then hugged by Jack and he asks for Shawn's whereabouts. Jack tells him that Shawn is with Julia Turner (Claire Holt) at the diner and Evan says he'll be back. Shawn and Julia are talking about Shawn going to Stanford University. Evan then comes into the diner and greets his brother. Shawn then tells him that he is still pissed at him and Evan says "Look, I'm sorry I didn't come to Mom's funeral, but I'm here now." Shawn tells him "You shouldn't have come." Shawn and Julia then leave Evan by himself. Evan then runs into an old friend named Audrey Jones (Crystal Reed). Evan and Audrey then start talking about how they use to play together when they were little. Audrey asks if he is going to the party tonight and he says he'll think about it. Evan, Shawn and Jack are eating dinner and Shawn then gets up to go to his room to eat. Jack tells him to sit down but he says "I won't sit down with him. He wasn't here for mom's funeral so why is he here now." Evan says "I wished I was at mom's funeral but I couldn't make it so don't blame it on me." Shawn then leaves to his room and eats up there. Julia tells him that he should sneak out to go to the party and Shawn says he is going now and will see her there. Shawn then opens the window and makes it out. Evan goes upstairs and finds Shawn gone. Jake Wilson (Brenton Thwaites) and Aiden Murphy (Logan Lerman) are filming the party and they see Shawn. They talk to Shawn about him going to Stanford. Evan comes to the party and sees Shawn. He tells Shawn that they need to talk but Shawn tells him off. Shawn then starts drinking beer and Evan sees Audrey. Evan then walks up to Audrey and taps her shoulder. Audrey says he finally came and Evan tells her that he thought she would be here so he decided to came. Audrey and Evan both smile and it skips to Shawn who is drunk. Julia says he needs to get home and he throws up. Evan then grabs Shawn and takes him home. Evan puts him to bed and he goes to bed. The morning after a mysterious power outage, swarms of invading North Korean paratroopers and transport aircraft attack the city. The two storm out of the house and Shawn witnesses an F-16 shoot down a Korean transport plane while they leave in a pick-up truck. Their father tells them to flee to their cabin in the woods while he helps the townspeople. They are later joined there by Jake, Aiden, Audrey, Cody (Connor Jessup), Maya and Gio Cortez (Bianca A. Santos and Diego Boneta), Mason Parker (Daryl Sabara) and Wes Turner (Mason Dye) . Tensions build as the group try to decide whether to surrender to the invaders or resist. North Korean soldiers, under the command of Captain Lee (Rick Yune), bring Sergeant Miller and Mayor Murphy (Gale Harold) out to convince the group to surrender, but Captain Lee executes Sergeant Miller after he refuses to cooperate and actively encourages them to resist (or die trying). Evan intends to fight and the others agree to join him, calling themselves the Wolverines after their school mascot. After acquiring weapons, establishing a base in an abandoned mine, and being trained by Evan, the Wolverines begin a series of guerrilla attacks against soldiers and collaborators. At night, the Wolverines decide to rescue Julia. With everyone doing their own job, Audrey, Cody and Shawn get Julia, Evan, Wes and Mason make a bomb, and Jake, Aiden, Maya and Gio shoot any guards who come by them. Evan is preparing a bomb and Captain Lee and the soldiers run in a hallway. Shawn, Audrey and Cody rescue Julia and Shawn hugs Julia. Captain Lee and the soldiers try breaking down the door with a log. Shawn, Audrey, Julia and Cody open the window and they each go out the window. Shawn looks at the door and it opens. Shawn jumps out and Evan blows up the building. Some of the soldiers are injured but Captain Lee is fine. The Wolverines then celebrate at the cabin. Evan then says "Tomorrow we are going to take them down because we are the Wolverines.
When Maya is kidnapped by Captain Lee this causes more trouble for the group. The only way to get her back is if the Wolverines surrender."
