Find out how Klaus and Elijah defeat unlikely foe Aurora in The Originals 3×13 “Heart Shaped Box” episode!

The Originals 3×13 “Heart Shaped Box” begins with a sunny day in New Orleans. Klaus is choking someone, searching for Aurora. Elijah and Freya find Klaus just before breakfast. Marcel enters and is quite sassy with Klaus. Klaus is picking on everyone, desperate to find Freya. Klaus isn’t trusting anyone at this time. He’s being quite rude to Marcel.

Freya goes to work on a locator spell to find Aurora. This time, it worked. However, Aurora finds Freya first.

Davina is at the Stricts hideout, working on things. Aya goes to ask what she’s doing. Davina tells Aya she needs Kol back if she wants the spell to work. She needs Kol to find the missing piece to the spell. Aya thinks about it for a moment then goes to a chest. She pulls out a hand of glory. Aya tells her that if Kol gives her the information that they need then she’ll make sure he stays permanently.

Hayley is out in a park sitting when Klaus goes to see her. Klaus tells her he’s sorry for her loss. However, Hayley isn’t feeling like people really care. He offers to keep her busy to keep her mind off of things. Klaus wants Hayley to watch over Cami. Hayley agrees to it.

Klaus gets a call, Elijah is at Freya’s and tells Klaus that she’s missing.Aurora of course left clues behind for the Mikaelsons to come find her. Marcel goes to visit Davina. He tells Davina he’s on her side. Marcel tells Davina he trusts her, and that they need to stick together. He made a promise that he’ll help her get Kol back as soon as this is over.

Eljiah and Klaus meet up and go over the clues. Klaus is mad and on a mission. Meanwhile, Freya wakes up with Aurora watching over her. They’re in a little house in the woods. Freya has no magic right now. Freya pulls a gun out and shoots Freya with a white oak (I’m assuming) bullet.

Cami is at her house, and Hayley comes to visit. Cami warns Hayley to text next time or she’ll get hurt. Hayley doesn’t pull any punches with Cami and calls her out on all of her drama. Cami is being very aggressive.

Klaus and Elijah are in the woods walking, searching for Aurora. They decide to split up. They make a promise that Aurora dies today. Elijah goes to search the house. It seems to be empty. Elijah finds the White Oak bullets. Klaus is walking in the foggy woods and finds some flowers. Freya is buried alive.

Aurora shows up and points the gun at Elijah. He asks about Freya. Aurora is quite cocky. Klaus is digging up graves. Aurora has many of them planted around the woods. Freya asks for Finn’s help, he answers by soaking the flower with blood so that Klaus can find Freya. Elijah and Aurora talk for a bit. She wants Klaus to show up so he can “watch Elijah die”.

KLAUS FACES OFF WITH AN UNLIKELY FOE — A VENGEFUL AURORA (GUEST STAR REBECCA BREEDS) MAKES HER MOVE – Determined to make her ultimate move against the Mikaelson brothers, Aurora (guest star Rebecca Breeds) uses Freya (Riley Voelkel) as bait to lure Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) into a dangerous trap.

Meanwhile, Marcel, Aya and the witches are eavesdropping on Davina and Kol’s conversation. Davina is trying to piecing everything together. Kol tells her that someone has to die to do this.

Klaus searches through the woods for Aurora. She shoots him but misses his heart. Klaus uses a road sign to stab Aurora in the stomach and flees.

Hayley is quite sore when Aya shows up. Hayley and Aya start fighting but Aya is quite strong. Marcel shows up and help Hayley. Aya and Marcel argue, but she agrees to give him time to figure things out.

Later that night, Cami is resting in her bed. She wakes up with a six pack of beer and a note by her bed. Elijah, Hayley and Klaus fill each other in on the days events. They need Hayley or Jackson’s heart. They have to dig up Jackson and get his heart.

Davina wakes up, where Kol is watching over her. He begs her to let him go. Kol tells her to kiss him before he goes, they kiss and he’s gone just as their lips touch.

Klaus, Hayley, and Elijah get to Jackson’s grave. It’s already missing. Elijah promises they’ll find whoever did this. Klaus promises to return the favor.
