Do Juliette and Calliope unite?

Over the course of 'First Kill,' we saw Juliette and Calliope go against all odds to be together. Even at the risk of being disowned by their families, the teens chose one another. However, towards the end, Juliette turned Calliope's brother Theo into a vampire while trying to help him die with dignity. This throws Calliope off completely, and she vows to find a way to kill every single legacy vampire, including Juliette. They are both seen storming away in tears after the argument, Juliette by car and Calliope on foot, and only time will tell whether they reconcile or not.

What happened to the Fairmonts?

After Noah's gory death, some of the concerned mothers band together and form a vigilante group of sorts to curb the monster menace in Savannah. They also end up targeting Sebastian Fairmont publicly, going so far as vandalizing his property for seemingly being lenient towards the monsters. While Elinor Fairmont is arrested by the police under suspicion of being a serial killer, Margot and Sebastian are left with just 2 days to produce Margot's late mother at a clan meeting. The finale sees them pondering over ways to handle the situation. 

What became of the Burns?

With Calliope falling in love with a vampire and Theo being turned into one, the Burns were continuously marred by obstacles throughout 'First Kill.' The monster hunters were also under scrutiny for not performing as per the expectations of the Guild. The series finale showed the family being torn apart as Jack and Apollo Burns plotted to slay Theo given that he was no longer human. Talia Burns, under the pretext of bidding farewell to Theo, frees him and leaves him with Oliver Fairmont. 

Why did Oliver return to Savannah? What did Theo find in his backyard?

'First Kill' ended with Oliver taking in Theo and revealing his grand scheme to him. The estranged son of Sebastian and Margot Fairmont takes Theo to his backyard where a motley crew of monsters is seen waiting. Oliver goes on to confide in Theo that he came back to Savannah for the sole reason of ruining lives. 

All episodes of 'First Kill' are available for streaming exclusively on Netflix.
