The Originals Season 1 Episode 8: "The River in Reverse" Quotes
I bowed down to you, brother, to make up for daggering you for the greater good of our plan to reclaim our home. I looked the other way, sister, while you repeat the same cycle with Marcel, falling again for a man you shouldn't be with while he controls the empire that we buit, that he took. Now I make no excuses for past sins, but in the one momeny when you two could have chosen to stand by me, to believe in me, to believe that my intentions for my own child were pure, you turned against me to side with my enemies. I wanted our home back, and now I have it. So I'm going to live there and the two of you can stay here together and rot.Klaus
