Dahlia shows Klaus where she was in captivity and explains she used dark magic to keep Esther safe. Klaus doesn’t care about her past.

Dahlia wants to help calm Hope’s magic down by taking her under her wing so she can learn how to control her magic.

Elijah and Marcel are looking at Klaus, wondering what to do. Elijah thinks Klaus should stay daggered until Hope is safe.

Cami brings them coffee. Vincent says the coven wants to join them as their leader. Cami tells him she would like him to use his magic for good by helping with the decoy.

Marcel calls Hayley and tells her Klaus is innocent of Aiden’s death. Freya is trying to find Hayley and Hope as Elijah tells her to go to the battlefield. He’ll then bring her Hope.
