The Originals 3×20 “Where Nothing Stays Buried” begins with Kol sitting in the bar, holding Davina. Marcel walks in and he’s so mad at Kol. Marcel goes to Davina and she looks pretty dead. Kol tries to explain, but Marcel is still mad. He starts punching Kol and Kol just lets him. He’s too busy hurting over the loss of Davina. Marcel is sick of the witches and they are going to bring Davina back.

Klaus is watching out over the city when Hayley comes to tell him shes been reading his father’s journals about the wolves. Hayley wants to make the arrangements for Cami’s death. Klaus just wants revenge.

Meanwhile, Vincent is working on a way to take away all of Aurora’s serum. Freya has been working on a way to finally kill Lucien. Vincent tries to explain that he can’t help kill Lucien with only his magic because the Ancestors were the ones mastering the spell.

Elijah shows up and wants an update. Freya is wearing herself down. Elijah is getting worried about her. At the bar, Vincent, Kol, and Marcel want to help Davina somehow. Marcel goes to get Freya to help.

At Lucien’s, he’s getting all dressed up. He’s got the new head witch. He isn’t being too helpful so Lucien decides to kill Rebekah. At the Mikaelson’s…Kol is wanting their help but Elijah is iffy about it at first. Klaus shows up and goes to help Kol get cleaned up.

Vincent stays with Davina to watch over her. He talks to her, he truly does care for his young friend. Vincent vows he won’t leave her dead. Freya is more than willing to help Davina. Freya needs an Original to channel their energy. However the ancestors give a warning signal to leave things alone. They also hint that Rebekah is next.

Klaus is furious. The family is at a lost at what to do. Klaus wants Elijah to stay with Kol and keep things safe while he goes to get Rebekah. Klaus goes into town, but Hayley stops him. She makes it clear she’s going with him.

Meanwhile, the Mikaelson’s work to get Davina back. Vincent works to bring Davina back as Freya works to block out the Ancestors. They put her some place safe, it’s in the crypts. She’s walking around and the ancestors start going after her. The Ancestors work hard to get to Davina but Freya isn’t giving up. She and Elijah are holding strong. They do the spell and she comes back. She however, can’t leave that circle in the Mikaelson living room.

In the bayou, Hayley is trying to talk some sense into Klaus. Klaus is still quite bitter. At the Mikaelson home, Davina explains how the Ancestors made her feel. Kol explains what the Ancestors stone was for. It’s not looking good. Kol gets a call from Vincent and promises Davina that she’ll be resurrected soon.

Freya wants to use Davina as a ground to steal power from the Ancestors. Freya explains the severity of her new plan, and Elijah doesn’t want to do it. In order to kill Lucien, they’ll have to kill Davina.

In the bayou, Klaus gets a call from Elijah. Elijah told him Freya’s new plan. Klaus doesn’t want to chance Davina’s life so he tells them to come up with another plan. At Lucien’s, they’re getting closer to finding Rebekah. In the bayou, Hayley keeps pushing Klaus to let out his feelings a little. Klaus tells Hayley she needs to be honest with Elijah…to stop wasting time.

Vincent goes to the cemetery, he goes to ask the new regent what’s going on? Vincent tries to talk some sense into the new Regent. Vincent and Kol knock out the Regent. In the car, Hayley is worried that Elijah doesn’t feel the same way, Klaus gets a call from Elijah and gives the phone to Hayley. Their vehicle is then rammed by a black SUV.

Elijah and Freya know they are out of time. They make a quick decision, they have to use Davina. Davina talks to Marcel and reassures him that she’s not a kid, her decisions are her own. Marcel is feeling guilty and she thanks him for saving her and always being there for her.

Freya goes to Davina and breaks the spell as Davina and Marcel fight to try to save her. Meanwhile, Freya works to steal the Ancestors magic, leaving Davina alone to the Ancestors. Freya feels justified, but Elijah is quite worried.
