Dahlia sends a message to Hayley, revealing she knows where she is. Dahlia waits outside of the house, in a park, and kills all the werewolves who are watching Hayley.

Rebekah talks to Marcel about Klaus and Freya. Meanwhile, Freya works on her plan by herself. Elijah gives her the knife Klaus used to carve the wooden chess pieces for him and Rebekah when they were younger. He wants Freya’s help. She agrees, as long as he promises that Klaus won’t “undo them.”

Cami comes to talk to Klaus and suggests a walk for some fresh air.

At a safe house, Dahlia watches Hayley and Hope as Hayley vows to harm Dahlia. Dahlia attempts to persuade Hayley to give up Hope.

WAYWARD WAYS – Setting the stage for a bloody showdown, Dahlia (guest star Claudia Black) gives Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) a deadline to turn over baby Hope. Elijah (Daniel Gillies) attempts to convince Klaus that they need to work together in their fight against Dahlia, but Klaus forges ahead with his own dangerous plan, leaving everyone concerned about his next steps. Meanwhile, when Hayley realizes their chances of outrunning Dahlia are slim, she devises a risky plan and enlists Aiden’s, guest star Colin Woodell, help.
