In the bayou, Klaus has gone looking for Hayley. Hayley tells Jack she can't tell him her secrets because it isn't safe for him to know. He tells her he has a secret, too, and it has to do with her parents and their death.

Rebekah visits Cassie and reveals her plan to channel Freya's power in order to break out of the asylum, but she gets distracted by a new witch in the house who is enamored with the television. Freya is the new witch.

Davina awakes in Kol's lab where he's moving forward with his plan to create a dagger that will work on Klaus. Just before they start the spell, Davina gets a text from Aiden informing her that Josh and Marcel are still missing. Finn has them and he's starving them in order to get Marcel to talk.

Hayley tells Klaus she's on the fence about telling Jackson their secret but believes it would be a good idea. Telling Jackson and going through with the wedding would give them an army of wolves to protect Hope so that they can bring her home. Klaus doesn't want an army of wolves to protect her. He wants to do that himself. He tells Hayley she cannot marry Jackson and she becomes firm in her resolve to go through with it.

Aiden takes some of Josh's personal items to Kol and Davina. After Kol snarks a bit he and Davina channel their powers to find Josh and locate him at Lenore's bodega. Aiden tries to leave on his own to rescue Josh and Davina won't let him. She insists that she and Kol help him rescue Josh.

Back in the bayou, Hayley and Klaus continue to argue about their child and plans to save her life.

After telling Hayley he trusts her more than she knows, he snaps her neck saying it's Jackson he doesn't trust.

Finn has awakened Marcel and tied him up with vervain-soaked ropes. Finn reveals to Marcel that what he wants is Klaus' secrets because he believes that secret is Klaus' weakness. Marcel holds out and endures Finn's torture while taunting the elder Mikaelson brother. 

Freya visits Rebekah's room after lights out and wants to know why Rebekah is there. Rebekah begins to tell bits of the family story to the girl, who asks why she and her family fight instead of standing together. Rebekah asks Freya to come along with her as she tries to break out of the asylum. 

Klaus returns to the cabin to speak to Jackson, who goes outside to meet his adversary in battle. Klaus tells Jackson he hasn't come to fight but to kill Jackson. 

Marcel convinces Finn he doesn't know Klaus' secret just as Kol arrives. After stabbing Marcel in the hand with a dagger, Kol begins trying to win favor with Finn, telling him about the dagger he's forging for Klaus and promising Davina's loyalties to Finn in his quest to destroy Klaus.

Rebekah goes looking for Cassie and can't find the Harvest girl. She does find the unlocked bedroom upstairs and the body of the elder witch.
