The scene switches to 24 hours earlier, with Rebekah and Klaus at the breakfast table. Klaus asks about Marcel and Rebekah says that she hasn't seen him. Rebekah tries to play innocent but Klaus accuses her of giving him the devil's eye. Rebekah says that she is afraid to voice her opinion for fear that Klaus will bite her. Klaus defends his actions by stating that Elijah made inflammatory comments about his intentions towards his child. Klaus tells Rebekah that his preferred method of punishment for her indiscretions is the dagger. Rebekah replies that there is something fundamentally wrong with Klaus before leaving.
In the bayou, Haleigh is taking care of a very sick Elijah, in a cabin, in the swamp. Haleigh has gone through the bible which was left for her, with an entry which may refer to her. Elijah points out that he will soon start to hallucinate and become unstable and so suggests that Haleigh leave him there. Haleigh declares that she is not leaving Elijah like this. In the woods, a woman with the same birthmark as Haleigh watches the cabin.
Back in the quarter, Marcel makes his way into the bar and introduces Tyler to his vampires. Marcel informs the vampires that by staying to hear what Tyler has to say, they are signing up for battle. No one leaves and Tyler begins to talk about Klaus and his hybrid abilities. Tyler tells them all about Haleigh and her pregnancy. Tyler then speaks about Klaus turning a group of werewolves into hybrids, as well as how they broke free of Klaus's compulsion and were slaughtered. Rebekah enters the room and all the vampires turn and stare at her. Rebekah tells them that the baby will allow Klaus to sire more hybrids, which means that vampires won't stand a chance. Rebekah adds that Klaus is a crap individual and that the last thing he needs is to sire a superior species. Rebekah then snaps Tyler's neck and says that they are not going to harm the baby because Klaus is the one they are putting a stop to.
Klaus is dictating his memoir to Camille and complains that his siblings are as deceitful as his parents ever were. Camille asks what the point is of writing this because all Klaus repeatedly says is that everyone is out to get him. Camille adds that she wonders if Klaus trusts his own reflection. Klaus replies that if the daggers weren't missing, he would put one in each of their hearts. Camille tells him that he is the architect of his own misery. On the desk, Klaus finds a paper with a weird sign and Camille tells him that it is a tattoo design.
Rebekah and Marcel are down in the garden with Tyler and they decide to keep Tyler locked up until Klaus is taken care of. Rebekah then asks where they are going to put Klaus and Marcel says a that picked out a spot in the back, where Klaus will reside for 52 years. Marcel has picked this number to match the years Klaus had Rebekah daggered in the 1800's. Rebekah reminds Marcel that he let Klaus keep her daggered. Rebekah suggests that Davina should put the odds in their favor but Marcel believes that they cannot risk getting Devina involved because she has less and less control over her magic recently. Rebekah says that they are going to need Marcel's best warriors and Marcel assures Rebekah that what they are doing is nothing Klaus hasn't done to Rebekah or Elijah repeatedly. The two kiss.
Back in the swamp, Elijah screams in pain and Haleigh goes rushing into the cabin. When Haleigh puts her hand on Elijah's head, she gets a vision of Celeste. Elijah tells Haleigh that he thought that she was someone else and is shocked that he allowed her into his thoughts. Haleigh says that it's fine and that she is taking care of him. Elijah sits up and says that they are being watched. When Haleigh heads outside, she sees the woman but the woman takes off quickly.
Klaus heads to a garage where he meets up with Josh. Josh then heads to Marcel and reports that Klaus wants him to steal a dagger. Josh believes that this is a test and adds that Klaus knows that he is working for Marcel now. Rebekah calls Klaus a bastard, quickly realizing that Klaus means the dagger for her. Marcel tells Josh to calm down because if Klaus knew, he would have ripped out Josh's spine by now. Marcel instructs Josh to say that he couldn't get the dagger but that he saw it on Marcel.
Josh then reports to Klaus that Marcel is clearing out the compound for a date. Klaus tells Josh that when he runs New Orleans that there will be a permanent daylight ring for him. Klaus however warns that if Josh ever betrays him, he will spend the rest of his eternal life in agony wishing for death before leaving.
Kiernan is sitting in prayer when Klaus shows up. Klaus brings up Camille and that he has been compelling her. Klaus says he does so for Camille's protection because she won't leave things be. Klaus suggests that if Camille keeps digging, she will discover about vampires, and witches and eventually go so far that she will get herself killed. Klaus believes that Camille needs to leave because New Orleans will be the death of her. Though Klaus has been compelling Camille, he believes that it needs to be her choice to leave the city. Klaus admits that has not allowed anyone else to talk to him the way that Camille does. Because Klaus smells war in the air, he believes that Camille will be the innocent victim if she does not walk away. Finally Klaus says that if Camille does not leave of her own free will, he will be forced to compel her to go.
Haleigh is still playing nursemaid and Elijah has a flashback to Celeste sitting in the bathtub. Celeste reports that Klaus has been challenging the gentry to duels, as though they have any chance of winning. Elijah says that he tired of sacrificing his joy to temper Klaus's mischief and asks Celeste to cast a spell to put Klaus in his place. Celeste says that it would take 100 witches to put Klaus in his place and adds that Klaus only ever listens to Elijah. Elijah agrees that Klaus does need some discipline and he kisses Celeste.
Elijah awakes and asks Haleigh to leave again because he is flooded with torturous memories. Haleigh asks if Elijah doesn't like people taking care of him and Elijah responds that there are consequences for people who care. Haleigh again affirms that she is staying and Elijah asks about the person watching them. Haleigh says that the woman might the one who left the bible last night. Elijah points out that Haleigh came here to get information about her family, not nurse a sick vampire with a fever. Once again Haleigh affirms that she is staying.
