|Davina Claire (Danielle Campbell), the girl whom Marcel gave Elijah’s body, is bored in her house while staring at Elijah’s desiccated body in the coffin. When Marcel enters the room (now the attic of the house), he finds her drawing Elijah’s body rather than doing what he asked and is disappointed. Davina tells him that she doesn’t really see why anyone has to die as Elijah seems very expendable as he is. Marcel replies that what can kill Elijah can kill Klaus in case he’s to be dangerous in the future. Davina suggests Marcel infiltrate Elijah’s mind with his vampire abilities as he must be aware of some sort of weapon, but refuses to have any blood on her hands. She looks at a portrait on the wall she drew of Jane-Anne’s dead body, which Marcel confirms to be the case, much to Davina’s shock and sadness. She tells Marcel that she thought the death-sentence would be just a way to keep the witches in line, not actual reality and feels increasingly guilty for Jane’s death as she was the one who told Marcel the witch did magic, which lead to Marcel brutally killing her.
Marcel calms her and reminds her that they deserved it, Jane-Anne more than anyone. He leaves after telling her that Lenore will be coming by later to make sure no one can find Elijah’s body.
Back in the Mikaelson Mansion, Hayley has noticed Elijah’s disappearance and demands to know from Klaus what happened. When he does not tell her, she journeys to the Quarter, where she stumbles upon a witch that realizes she’s a werewolf and Hayley asks the witch if she has any wolfsbane, which she gives her. Hayley has decided to kill the baby and be rid of the Mikaelsons once and for all. When a vampire, Diego, sees her and the wolfsbane, he rounds up some vampires who rush to kill her, but, oddly, she manages to fight them off with more-than-lycanthropic strength, killing a few and snapping the neck of Diego.
Elsewhere, while in a school cafeteria, Davina is distracted and does not hear what her friends, Josh and Tina McGreevy, are saying and then sees another boy, Tim (Simon Nessman), walk into the room. Tim is one of the school’s heartthrobs whom even Josh is into, but Tim keeps mostly to himself and his art and has only known to talk with Davina. Tim decides to join them for lunch on the day, much to Davina’s joy.
Klaus in the meantime, talks to Sophie Deveraux about finding out the reason why witches cannot do magic, which leads to the witch elder, Agnes, telling Klaus that he will learn in time and that he should rather have Marcel give him the information he wants.
Hayley is chased further into the woods by more vampires, and trips on a root. But before they can kill her, several werewolves rush in and kill them first, saving Hayley and the baby. The werewolves disappear, leaving Hayley to rush further away from the Quarter.
Klaus sees Camille (who insists to be called “Cami”) and rekindles their earlier conversation, asking for her advice: is it wrong to do something for your family, even if it hurts them, to protect them and Cami answers that sometimes tough love is completely necessary, she would know. When pressed on what she means, Camille shrugs it off, saying she just remembers a family member who needed a firm hand.
Marcel is spying on them and is interrupted when Thierry pops up. He informs him of a female wolf in the Quarter that was powerful enough to kill a bunch of his men. Troubled, Marcel orders one of his men to keep an eye on Cami: he doesn’t want her hurt, while he also tells Thierry he wants the wolf found and murdered. Klaus overhears the conversation, too, notices him leaving and compels Cami to slowly but surely, like Marcel. He then goes home, where he does not find a missing Hayley and panics as he heard Marcel’s order.
Davina goes home and she decides to open Elijah’s coffin and studies his body before she touches his temples, concentrates and then seemingly enters his mind.
Davina finds herself in Elijah’s memories a thousand years ago right after his father had driven a sword into his heart. She wonders nearby to where Finn’s dead body lies bleeding out. Davina asks herself who did this to him, but before Finn can answer, she is pulled away by a newly-vampiric Elijah, who pins her to a tree and demands to know who she is and what she’s doing in his mind, only for Davina to overwhelm him with her magic and pop out of his mind, rising from her body. Gasping, she realizes an African-American woman in the room: Lenore Mona (Sonja Sohn).
Hayley finds herself at the town boarder and as she crosses, she begins to cough uncontrollably, blood flowing out of her eyes, mouth, nose and eyes as she begins to die only for Klaus and Sophie to show up and Sophie’s pulled back into the boarder by Klaus, who is enraged that she would leave town with the baby. Hayley heatedly replies that she was trying get away from the danger that Klaus put her in by impregnating her, excuse her if she wanted to get away from him. Klaus strangles her only to be calmed by Sophie, who reminds him she’s pregnant with his child. Klaus, realizing how wrong it was for both her and the baby, genuinely feels bad, relieved he can hear her heartbeat and the baby’s.
Back in the attic of Davina’s place, Lenore chants a cloaking spell over Elijah’s body as Davina watches. Once done, Lenore asks Davina what’s wrong with her, entering the mind of a Mikaelson is dangerous for her: A. She’s too young to be in a vampire’s mind and B. even if she found the weapon that could kill them, she might take years to process that kind of information as Elijah has lived thousands of people’s lives. Lenore asks Davina if she’ll reconsider letting her teach her to control her powerful magic and Davina refuses, saying she’s under control and barely even once to be a witch, when Lenore presses the issue, Davina’s power flares and the whole building shakes as well as the woods surrounding it.
While Hayley is sleeping, Klaus realizes that Hayley healed much too fast and wonders how she was able to outrun vampires and also that Jane-Anne’s spell was quite clever: she bound Hayley and the child to New Orleans: that was the third part of the Threefold Enchantment. Sophie confirms this and the fact that Hayley’s body is now full of Klaus’s child’s blood, it healed Hayley, saved her life, but warns him that if Hayley had stayed out of NOLA any longer, she would’ve died and she’s glad he got to see first-hand that the witches weren’t bluffing.
The same night, Hayley finds Klaus in the study and tells him that she’s sorry about trying to run off with the baby, and confesses that she did want to kill the baby to be rid of him, but she realized that Klaus gave her a gift, something she’s wanted for a long time: family. This makes Klaus confess about Elijah and why he did it: to protect him. Hayley asks where his body is and he reveals he does not know, but once the city is his, he will. Klaus warns her not to leave the house or else she’ll be killed as one of Marcel’s men know about her face: Diego.
A couple of days later, Davina and Marcel talk about how the witches and Klaus have been following suit, but there's a werewolf in town capable of killing a group vampires on her own, so asks Davina if she can find her. Davina refuses, saying she just wants to be normal. She asks if she can go to the Quarter for a thing that her friends will be attending on the weekend and Marcel refuses, telling it’s not safe.
Klaus seeks out Diego and compels him to forget how the wolf he saw the day before looked.
After getting bored reading Elijah’s diary in which he describes one of the loves of his life: Celeste Hélène-Marie Dubois, a beautiful witch who lived in the French Quarter in the days when they established their stance in New Orleans, Hayley sees a werewolf in the pool area of the mansion and rushes after it, leaving the mansion in the process.
Elsewhere, Davina solely decides that since Marcel tricked her and killed Jane-Anne, she gets to call a couple of friends over to the house to party with her and invites her friends Josh, Tina and Tim over.
Marcel meets with Klaus to discuss the terms of his staying in New Orleans: Klaus can do anything, kill any witch, but humans are off-limits as the rules are you can drink from them, but you have to either turn them or heal and make them forget as a way of maintaining their food, a strategy Klaus loves. He asks Marcel what his secret weapon is once more and Marcel tells him that it is something that is stronger than anything he’s ever or will ever see.
After setting up, she decides to open Elijah’s coffin and studies his body before she touches his temples and re-enters his mind.
Hayley ends up in the Quarter where Tina, who sees she’s unhappy, decides to invite her to a friend’s small get-together. Wanting a distraction, Hayley accepts.
Davina finds herself in the exact same room but watching her own unconscious body laying on the ground next to the coffin. Elijah stands across from her and says, “Hello, Ms. Claire.” before she asks, “how’re you —?” And before she can answer, downstairs Josh arrives and is worried about Davina’s whereabouts as he knows nothing of her true identity. She asks where they are and Elijah says they’ll have time to talk later until Davina wakes up.
Hayley and Tina drive in the same car and Tina asks her if she’s new in town, to which Hayley answers that she was born here, but never knew her parents or any of her family. Tina mysteriously tells her, “Don’t worry, you will, soon.”
Davina rushes downstairs where hears music and sees her friend Tina dancing and Josh keeping Hayley company in the living room. Josh is surprised to see her and asks where she’s been and she lies, telling him that she was lost in a portrait. Davina is glad to see them, but wonders where Tim is and they tell her that he called for a rain check, much to her disappointment. When Hayley shakes Davina’s hand when they greet, Davina is seemingly afraid and pulls her hand away from the wolf’s grasp, much to Josh and Tina’s confusion.
Marcel goes to the Quarter to warn Sophie not to tell Klaus anything about “the Harvest”, only for Sophie to tell him that she has no dealings with the Mikaelsons. Marcel answers that he knows everything that happens in the Quarter and that he knows that Jane-Anne was given to the witches for consecration from the now-dead Elijah Mikaelson, much Sophie’s surprise. He warns her that if she does tell anyone about the Harvest Girls, he will not be pleased, a conversation that Klaus overhears.
Davina and her friends are bored and Hayley says she is intruding and should leave, but Josh and Davina insist she stays and they decide to do a séance for fun. Tina brings an Ouija board and places it on the table. Tina, Josh, Hayley and Davina place their fingers on each side of the board and Josh directs Tina to call on a ghost. Before she can, the front door opens on its own. Josh is excited and asks if the ghost has just entered and the house or if it was here all along. The arrow at the center of the board shifts to the letters "N-O.” Davina is shocked it worked and Tina is frightened, telling them she has a bad feeling. Davina asks if any of them know the ghost. Answer: Y-E-S. When Davina asks who the ghost is, Josh reminds her that the next person has to ask and so, Hayley repeats her question, the arrow moves to H-A- before the windows explode and they decide to stop it. Josh is the only one not frightened and continues to ask what its name is, the ghost starts with E and then L and then I, seeing Elijah’s desiccated apparition near the table, Tina shouts, “shut it down!”. Davina, too, sees Elijah and hurries to ignite the board into flames with a word “ignis!” which Hayley overhears with new, much enhanced hearing. Tina asks if anyone else saw the “ghost” and everyone denies it, including a lying Davina.
After this incident, Tina and Josh decide to head home as it is late and Hayley offers to stay behind and help clean up. Once alone, Hayley asks Davina if she is a witch and Davina accepts this. Hayley says she thought witches couldn’t do magic in New Orleans and Davina says it’s true, they can’t, because otherwise, Marcel will kill them. Davina asks her what she is and Hayley tells her. After Hayley asks why she risked doing magic Davina begs her not to say anything to anyone about her because “they would come for me”.
Later, Hayley comes home, only to find out that Klaus has been waiting for her and after argument in which she demands to know what he did with Elijah, and Klaus tells her that he was a liability, but he will not have her and the baby in the line of fire and asks where she was and she lies saying that she was digging up information on her parents. He tells her that he’s been doing digging of his own and he’s heard the whispers of the Harvest and he tells her to invite Sophie over tomorrow.
Back in the attic, Davina is alone with Elijah’s body and completes his portrait and then pulls out the dagger in his chest and sticks it back in. Marcel enters the room and asks who she was with and Davina lies, telling him no one.
Hayley is caught reading up on Klaus and Elijah’s history with Marcel in Elijah’s journals, in which she learns that Marcel was actually the descendant of African slaves and his own mother was one. His conception by a European (or White man) was forbidden and he was shunned, keeping him a slave who was tortured by his European masters. Klaus, taking pity on him and seeing him as a kindred soul, freed him by killing his task master and raised him alongside Rebekah, Elijah and Kol. Rebekah became his secret lover once he was old enough, until Klaus forced him to choose between Rebekah and immortality, choosing the latter, Klaus daggered Rebekah and put her to rest for 52 years, which fragmented Klaus’s relationship with Rebekah and with Elijah.
Camille is at a meeting with her uncle, Kieran, who is happy to see her. They have a casual conversation until she asks, “how is he?” and he says that “he” would be much better if she went to see him.
That night, while Davina draws, she turns to see Elijah standing behind her. She is at first startled and when Elijah takes a step toward her, the mirror shatters. Elijah grins, telling her that he won’t harm her. She eyes the coffin and realizes he’s really awoken.
Cami and Kieran enter the Fleur-de-Lis Sanatorium and asks to see a Sean O’Connell, who is in one of their rooms. They find the room, in which a blond boy lays on a bed with his eyes to the roof, his body pinned with a straitjacket. When he sees Cami, he smiles and says, “C-C-Cam-y? Are you really here?” when Cami goes to hug him to confirm her presence, Sean closes his eyes happily welcoming her back before saying, “now I can take you to hell!” and bites into her shoulder hard enough to draw blood. Kieran calls the doctors, who subdue a fitting Sean and he leaves with a terrified Cami.
A day later, Sophie and her friend Sabine have come to where Klaus and Hayley live and Klaus demands to know what the Harvest is. The two witches are surprised he’s even heard that word and Klaus admits to spying on Sophie and overhearing her conversation with Marcel. Sophie refuses to say anything of the matter and that it is “witch business”. Klaus, losing his temper, tells her that he can’t help them if he doesn’t know what Marcel’s secret weapon is and if he doesn’t learn the secret of why the vampires know when witches are doing magic. Sabine and Sophie are adamant. Hayley, who was quiet the entire time, asks “who’s Davina”. Fear immediately encases their gazes. Even Klaus is surprised at Hayley’s sudden voice. Sophie asks where she’s seen Davina, and Hayley presses her to answer the question. Defeated, Sophie and Sabine explain the Harvest: a ritual the Nine Covens of NOLA do every three centuries to renew the Ancestral Power of New Orleans Witches. Sophie had always found the Harvest to be a myth, but found that it wasn’t. Eight months prior, Sophie learned from her sister that the community was rather moving forward with the ritual. When Klaus asks why he’d never heard of it, she admits because it always seemed like a myth. They are interrupted by Marcel, who calls Niklaus to get his help: he’s meeting an informant werewolf who may know who the person who killed Diego’s group is.
In Davina’s mansion, Elijah is given blood by a curious Davina. When Elijah asks her why she is fraternizing with a vampire and standing against her family, the witches, she tells Elijah that 8 months ago, the Elders of her coven gathered girls with potential for great power and prepared them, claiming that their participation in “the Harvest” would bring prosperity to their families. She was among them, but she learned that all they actually wanted was more power. [c.f. Sinners and Saints#Plot for the story of the Harvest].
