Klaus is now holding court in his new home. Even as he gives his speech, the vampires around him clearly give him hateful glances. He has humans slit their wrists and fill goblets with blood. We then shift to Rebekah and Marcel, where she informs him that because he ambushed Klaus, that Marcel must give Klaus the illusion of his loyalty. Marcel believes that Klaus won't trust him and Rebekah suggests that if he plays the part, Klaus will forgive and trust. Back at the diner party, Marcel joins in on the toast, as Diego looks on in disgust. Later, Marcel explains to Diego that though he had the loyalty of his vampires, letting the battle continue against Klaus would have meant that they all would have died. Marcel tells Diego to follow his lead and promises that this isn't over. At the party, Klaus tell them that his intentions are to celebrate what they have moving forward. Diego asks about Haleigh and Klaus tells them that they must respect her because she is carrying his child. Klaus assures them that he will not use his child's blood to create hybrid and to prove this, Klaus then announces plans to let the vampires hunt the werewolves in the bayou. This is to stand as evidence that Klaus plans to create no more hybrids. Haleigh looks on in horror because Klaus is talking about slaughtering her family.
Elijah and Rebekah look on as Klaus has movers taking things out of the house. Rebekah is not impressed and so Elijah reminds her that they have wounded Klaus deeply. Elijah leaves saying that he wants to make sure that Haleigh won't suffer for their mistakes.
Klaus is now dictating to Camille what recently happened between him and Elijah. Camille wants to know why Klaus still needs her because he now has control over the quarter. Klaus replies that he still needs his memoirs written. Marcel enters and also questions why Camille is there and Klaus informs him that she knows they are vampires and has been compelled to forget when she leaves. Marcel realises that Klaus compelled Camille to date him. Camille then shows Klaus the picture she found of him and Marcel and argues that Camille's sanity is not a joke. Klaus compels Camille once again to forget before dismissing her.
Haleigh wonders through the compound when she is stopped by Diego. Elijah makes short work of Diego and Rebekah makes her appearance. Elijah asks Haleigh to leave with him and she informs him that she is safe as per Klaus's orders but the werewolves are in need of help. Rebekah asks if they look like a vampire rescue squad. Haleigh pleads because she has always wanted to know who her real family is and begs for Rebekah and Haleigh to help her people.
Marcel and Klaus are talking and Marcel suggests that diplomacy goes a long way with the human faction. Klaus is looking at Camille's photo and adds that there are things he needs to confess. Klaus tells the truth about Thierry and says that he can return to the compound at Marcel's discretion. Klaus then brings up Joshua and admits that he was compelled from the beginning. It seems that Klaus wants Devina to move to the compound and so he tells Marcel about Devina's deal with Elijah. Marcel leaves reminding Klaus that the meeting is in an hour.
Camille is now back home and finds a note on the mirror saying "believe nothing Klaus tells you." Camille then finds another note telling her to look in her bag. In the bag she finds a recording device and plays a recording of Klaus dictating his memoirs.
Marcel has gone to see Devina about moving to the compound and she declares that she cannot leave the attic. Marcel then reveals that he knows about the deal with Elijah. Marcel says that she is safest with them because the witches are still trying to kill her. Klaus makes his appearance and Devina asks if this is Klaus's idea. Klaus makes it clear that while she is devoted to Marcel, Marcel is devoted to him. Klaus reminds Marcel that they have a meeting to attend downstairs. Marcel asks Devina to trust him before leaving.
Klaus and Marcel meet with Kiernan and the rest of the humans. The mayor tells Klaus that they want to make sure he is aware of how things work in the city. Kiernan clarifies that he wants the city to stay safe. Kiernan then brings up rules like no feeding on the locals and no untoward attention. One man suggests that if they break the rules, the vampires will answer to him. Klaus makes it clear that the council will take whatever scraps he offers and be thankful.
In the bayou, Diego is leading the hunt, when Elijah and Rebekah make an appearance. Rebekah threatens to rearrange his face and Elijah makes it clear that this particular clan is not to be touched. Diego agrees to leave saying that there is nothing there. Rebekah declares their job done but Elijah is not finished. Elijah finds Eve and declares that they are not there to hurt her. Eve makes it clear that no one finds them unless they want to be found.
Klaus and Marcel sit down for a drink and Klaus suggests that Marcel is disappointed by his lack of diplomacy then adds more than anyone, Marcel should need no reminder of the human capacity for cruelty. Klaus's phone rings and he learns that the factions have reached a decision on his terms. The window explodes exposing the vampires to sun and they burst into flames. Bullets rain down on the restaurant. Later, we see charred vampire remains and Marcel blames Klaus for what happened. Marcel informs Klaus that the people who died belonged to him and if he is going to run the city, this better mean something to him. Klaus admits that he under estimated the faction and asks how he should respond. Marcel suggests that they go kill them all.
Eve shows Rebekah and Elijah a map of the swamp and adds that the werewolves born here will be fine. Eve shows where the newcomers are and adds that the weres might not know where to hide. Eve argues that they need to live and informs the siblings they need to see for themselves.
Devina finds Josh hiding in the garage and Josh says that he is stuck there until it gets dark. Josh admits his role in the failed bid to attack Klaus. Devina promises to hurt Klaus if he hurts Josh. Haleigh appears saying that if Devina could actually stop Klaus, she would have done it already. Haleigh denies being Klaus's wife and declares herself the pregnant werewolf. Haleigh says that she is just another one of Klaus's prisoners and points out that it would suck if Klaus found out that Josh is still here and suggests that they can all look out for each other.
