Aiden: You really think there's a way out up here?
Josh: Nope. Not a chance. One of the vamps even tried climbing over the roof. No dice. But I figure as long as we're trapped here in the witch bubble of doom, we might as well make the most of it.
[to Elijah] Your mother really did a number on you boys, didn't she? Did it ever occur to you that I am less interested in fixing your problems and more interested in forgetting my own? I mean I'm basically in a supernatural witness protection program because your psychotic brother, who I might add I practically had to seduce, wants me dead. So, yeah. Booze and board games is pretty much where I am right now.Cami

It has been said that all love begins and ends with she who gave us life. A thousand years ago my mother turned us into monsters yet still she claimed to love her children even as she vowed to destroy us. The noble Elijah, tormented by long buried, shameful secrets. Kol, the wily troublemaker, out for no one but himself. Finn, the devoted acolyte, his love all too easily warped by our mother's sick hate. Fierce Rebekah, willing to risk everyhing on the chance that she might one day find happiness. And me, the bastard child, my mother's greatest shame. Now finally we have defeated her, giving her the choice she never thought to give us, to live on as one of the monsters she created, or suffer the slow, agonizing death she so deserves.Klaus

They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.Klaus
We were innocent once, Elijah. This bloodlust was forced upon us by our parents, turning us from prey to predator. We are the demons lurking in shadow. We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. But not for my child. Not for Hope. In her story, we are the knights in shining armor. Without you by my side, I don't think I can survive my own love for my daughter. I need you. I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you. Only together can we defeat our demons and save our family.Klaus
