#TheOriginals starts with Aurora and Aya talking. Aya says give me the gun and I’ll give you what you want. Aurora says she has what she wants. Aya says Elijah is her sire so she can’t let her kill him. But Aurora says killing Elijah is the only way to end her brother’s torment.
Aya says we can end the sire lines ad she asks for a piece of her hair then calls in the witch Cynthia to guide her. She sees Tristan who hugs her and says he missed her. Aurora says she failed him but he says it’s all right. He says this is horrific.
He says Aya’s witches made a place and put his mind here so while his body drowns, he can read and relax. Aurora says she will burn the world and drain the oceans to find him. Tristan says he believes it. She says they have front row seats to a show.
Freya isn’t happy to hear from Elijah that he daggered Rebekah. They talk about how now they worry about friend and foe. She says they have few friends. Then Klaus walks in with Stefan and introduces him as an old friend. That worries Freya.
Davina tells Marcel that she’s almost ready to work the unlinking spell and Marcel says what if it kills him. He says this is precarious since they’re using Jackson’s heart. Davina says she needs to save Marcel and Josh then Kol.
Freya looks at the mark of the phoenix sword. Stefan tells Freya he dated her sister work. She says great story and then says the Huntress is dead but will regenerate. He says the wound is a beacon. He says it’s been a rough week.
Freya puts paste on him and says that will mask the signal. He asks why she’s bum rushing him out the door. Klaus tells Elijah that Marcel is the friend betraying him. Freya tells Stefan about the Strix, Elijah’s crazy ex, and the sire line spell.
Klaus says they will come for them once the sire link is broken. Klaus tells Elijah he can use Aurora’s head as a foot stool. Hayley calls and Elijah takes it. He says the crescent wolves found Aurora. A wolf pads up to the house where Aurora was. Hayley morphs and goes inside.
Hayley looks around and then Klaus and Elijah are close by. Hayley spots a door then finds Lucien desiccated in the closet. Klaus and Elijah find Aya and she’s got Aurora’s gun. Elijah says there is justice to creator being destroyed by creation.
Hayley wakes Lucien who says get Klaus out of here. Cynthia the witch chants and Klaus and Elijah wake in Tristan’s mind palace. Aurora says the funny faces he makes when he’s surprised. Tristan says it’s good to see them both.
Klaus asks why they are there. Aurora says it’s representational magic. Klaus says find what represents them and they get out and Tristan says try it but the Strix coven is working on breaking the binding spell that holds the vamps to sire lines.
Tristan says their fates will soon no longer be tied. Aurora says then Aya will use the white oak to kill them once the sire lines are torn away. Tristan says they will die alone. Klaus looks around at the objects in the room. There are paintings, ninja swords and then Aurora holds one to his neck.
She laughs and says they are definitely not his. He spins and puts one to her neck. He says when he’s free he’s going to cut her in half. She asks about Cami. Elijah paces and Tristan says Aya designed the room so that should help him.
Tristan says he’s there because his people love him and Elijah is there because they loath him. Tristan says they begged them to lock themselves away until the prophecy passes and Elijah says spare me the deadbeat dad lecture.
Tristan says he should be grateful for the years he spent compelled to play him. Tristan says if anyone is foolish enough to fight for him, they will die. Marcel tells Hayley they can’t trust Lucien and says he didn’t know they were going to take Klaus and Elijah.
She rants about Jack’s heart and he says that heart saved her life. Lucien says they have to stop an execution. He says Davina is in over her head and says Aya will test the desiring spell by firing into Klaus’ heart and that means Lucien and Marcel both can die.
Lucien says if Davina fails, both of them will die with Klaus. Stefan walks in and says make that three of us. Aurora taunts Nick and shows him a carving and says maybe this little white knight represents you. Aurora says it’s nice to see how he protects those he cares about – the few of them.
She brings up Cami and he threatens her. Aurora keeps taunting him and says the king is the greatest and weakest piece on the board. She says when the sire link falls, they will race to put white oak in his heart.
Aurora says his family will let him die because they’re his eternal burden. Stefan looks at blueprints and Lucien argues with them. Lucien says these vamps are seven times his age. Marcel says the Strix from all over are flying in to guard it.
Lucien says he’s the leader and call a meeting. Hayley says Freya figured out how to get them out and just needs a power source. She says she needs to channel Lucien since he’s the oldest vamp around. Lucien babbles and Freya snaps his neck with magic.
Marcel asks how the three of them keep all those vampires occupied and Stefan says just get us through the front door. Stefan and Hayley are in the trunk of Marcel’s car and she looks at a pic of Hope. Stefan says she’s cute and asks if she’s why she’s there.
Hayley says yes that’s why she’s in a trunk with a stranger and doesn’t want her to grow up without a father. Stefan says depends on the father and says his brother had to protect him from theirs. Hayley says she never understood the brother bond til she met Klaus and Elijah.
She say they hurt each other but are also vicious protecting one another. He shows her a pic on his phone of Caroline and Hayley says she snapped her neck once and Klaus had a thing for her. Stefan says she’s toughened up since then.
She asks if Caroline is why he’s there and he says they both have their reasons. Marcel pulls up and they wave him through and open the gate. He drives inside. Tristan plays the violin and Aurora says look at them and asks how can a woman love either of them.
Marcel tells her if the spell goes wrong, Aya will kill Klaus and he and Josh will both die when they do it. Davina says Klaus had his turn and reminds him he was the one who wanted her to break the sire link two years ago and now she has.
Davina says he protected her by having her shunned and she knows he’ll always protect her even if she hates him for it. Davina says he deserves to be free of Klaus and says they all do. She says trust me so I can do this.
She tells Marcel he’s the only family she has and asks if they’re in it together. She says she can do it, no doubt if he’s with her. Marcel sighs. Stefan tells Hayley that his life is in her hands and says let’s make this count. He pulls the clay off his Huntress wound.
Rayna walks through the woods then stops and turns the other way. Davina says she’s ready and Marcel says take your time but Aya presses her to hurry and says they’ve all waited long enough. Davina says the unsired heart will charge the water.
They have Klaus and Elijah floating in the pool. Lucien wakes and asks if she had to tie him up. She says it will hurt. She even vervained the ropes. She says it’s going to take both their power to break into the prison and bust it open.
Lucien flirts and says they just need a cheap motel and some wine and says go ahead. She starts chanting and Lucien writhes in pain. Freya walks into the jail and says find what represents you. Klaus and Elijah’s necks are cut in real life and in the prison too.
Freya says – it’s starting. Rayna runs for the house and the vamps at the gate turn at her approach. A guard tells Aya they have an issue. Elijah tells her the chess pieces that represent them. Aya and the guards go on high alert but Rayna is on a killing spree in the house.
Aya recognizes her. The Strix attack. Elijah says it’s kings or knights. Freya says decide. Marcel says they have to get Elijah and Klaus out now and he’s knocked back by magic. Aurora says she’s glad she gets to watch them die.
Klaus says the women – the queens – and Freya grabs them and crushes them. Elijah comes to and starts killing witches. Klaus is awake too and comes at Davina but she holds him in the air with magic. Freya says Davina is breaking the link.
She’s working it and Klaus’s vampires begin to burn. Freya watches Lucien in torment. Elijah jumps in the pool to retrieve Klaus who says he felt them leave. He says his sire line is broken. Aya has killed Rayna for now. She comes into the room and Elijah tells Aya they are connected despite what she’s done.
He says he can’t let her hurt his family and she can’t hurt him anymore than she has. Aya says she stood by him and says he betrayed and abandoned them. He says he failed her and won’t forgive himself but can’t forgive this.
She says if your life was chained to a man despite your devotion, what choice would you have but to break free. She says end it. He points the gun at her and his hand shakes. She says end it Elijah. She says end it or I will take that gun and kill you.
A stake drives through her chest and Hayley is there holding it. She says that’s more mercy than Jack ever got. Elijah is stunned. Aya is dead. Tristan and Aurora are in his mind palace which is breaking. Tristan says it’s collapsing.
He tells her there’s so much left to say and she says she can’t lose him again. He says he loves her then begins to choke on seawater. She holds him and cries. Then Aurora wakes sobbing and Klaus is there. He says welcome back.
She’s sealed in and he says Freya did this. He says she made him realize what a monster he’s been and he should have done this sooner. She says he can’t leave her there. He’s bricking her up but she begs him to kill her.
He says he won’t give her the mercy and says the fish will eat Tristan while the worms eat her and says know it was me that took everything from you. Davina wakes at Marcel’s place and she’s mad. She says she asked him to do one thing – believe in her and choose her.
Davina says he didn’t. Marcel says he’s always on her side. He says something the things you want aren’t worth the price you pay. Davina says tell yourself that and says enjoy your freedom. She storms out. Stefan waits in the cemetery for Klaus after he bricked her up.
Klaus asks if Stefan will do the right thing by her and Stefan says he loves her and he knows Klaus did once too. He says he will always do right by her. Klaus thanks him. Stefan grabs his bag and says he should thank Hayley and says she cares about him for some reason. He says do right by her.
Klaus is choked up but says he’s never better. He shakes Stefan’s hand and calls him old friend then says take care of yourself. Stefan takes off. He asks what’s wrong with Freya and she says he just needs rest and he asks where the energy he lost go to.
Davina comes back to her church attic and then unstoppers a vial she took of Klaus and Elijah’s blood. She has Kol’s ashes and pours the blood into it then chants. The wind blows then Kol is there in the flesh. He laughs and says he never doubted her for a second.
