Marcel and Rebekah grew concerned when the reemergence of someone they once knew threatened to expose secrets they’ve kept buried for nearly a century. Elsewhere, Sophie was shocked when a discovery was made at the cemetery, but she soon realized things may not be as they seem. With the full moon looming, Hayley let Rebekah in on her plan to throw a party for her werewolf clan, but things took a dangerous turn when uninvited guests arrived. Meanwhile, Cami was conflicted when she made a difficult decision involving the safety of Father Kieran, and Elijah found himself facing his own dilemma when he had to choose between Hayley and his siblings. Finally, when one of his plans failed, Klaus took drastic measures in the Cauldron, resulting in dangerous repercussions that affected everyone involved.
On tonight’s episode When Rebekah finds herself locked up in the sanatorium where she worked in 1919, she realizes a witch named Genevieve (guest star Elyse Levesque) is back to seek revenge and to reveal dark secrets that would destroy Rebekah if exposed. A distraught Elijah turns to Marcel and Hayley for help when one of his decisions puts Klaus and Rebekah’s lives in danger. With time working against them, Marcel realizes he may hold valuable information that could lead them to Rebekah and Klaus, but revealing it will almost certainly result in deadly consequences.
