The Mikaelson brothers are back and still getting themselves into trouble, but who is really shocked by that? Still, they are incredibly easy on the eyes, so at least there’s that.

Poor Cami. She has no idea that she is pouring her heart out to Finn Mikaelson via Vincent the witch’s body. And she just keeps going on about the two men who were unique, also known as Vampires, with whom she shared feelings for. Still, she made a good point when she said that she sees good in Klaus despite all the bad he’s done and clearly there are lingering feelings going on there.

Live and Let Die

Meanwhile, Davina and Mikael are in the backwoods of the Bayou hiding out from Klaus, who now knows his father is alive and well, thanks to the little witch. Since they have nothing better to do than hide out, Mikael decides to train Davina to fight rather than constantly run away and hide. Little do either of them know, Klaus is on his way there to put both of them down. Of course, he isn’t alone, as Cami has taken it upon herself to make sure the original vampire doesn’t kill her friend Davina. However, while dancing with Cami (weird), Klaus gives her the slip and heads up to find Davina and his father alone.

In order to prevent sending children off to war, the werewolf army leader works with Elijah, Marcel, Hayley and Oliver to ensure the children are safe. Unfortunately, Vincent has also been working with the wolves, but not to get the children, to get Elijah, and he and Oliver are suddenly surrounded. Together, they take down the wolves, but Vincent shows up and captures Elijah, leaving him at the mercy of his mother. But hey, at least we know Oliver is on Team Good now!
