Klaus and Elijah vamp-speed toward her, but she uses her magic to block them using a wall of fire.
Genevieve continues the pain infliction spell to prevent Hayley's interference. Just as Monique is about to sacrifice the baby, she's hit with the Devil's Star, which embeds itself in her stomach. Her body becomes covered in cuts, and she coughs up blood before falling to the ground. Klaus and Elijah turn around to see that Marcel was the one who saved the baby. Before they can say anything, Marcel vamp-speeds to the baby, and then vamp-speeds away with it, Klaus follows after him.Later, Elijah and Hayley are shackling Genevieve in one of the tombs to get information from her, Genevieve then tells them that Esther is behind the plan to kill the baby, Hayley and Elijah just glare at her, Genevieve begins to bleed from her eye, she starts to choke up blood. Hayley watches her for a moment before sighing and stabbing her in the stomach, Hayley walks out of the tomb, as Elijah follows her with his look.
Later on their house, Elijah and Klaus are talking about Hope's security and Hayley intervenes, Hayley takes the decision to send they baby away from them to protect her, she says that they must first make New Orleands a safe place for the baby, Elijah disagree but comes to accept when Klaus tells him that they will make the baby pass for dead. Later, in the nursery, Hayley packs up the baby's bag with the letter she wrote to her. Elijah helps her lift the baby out of her cradle and into her arms. Hayley looks away as Elijah gently sticks the baby's finger with a pin to release a large drop of blood. Reluctantly, Hayley kisses the blood off of her finger to complete her transition.
Hayley and Elijah are seen together at an altar made for the people killed by the war and they try to make that the people think that the baby was among the dead, when Hayley approaches to the baby's space, she begins to mourn and Elijah reaches his hand to her.
"Don't. Don't say it. You know, ever since the first day that I met you, I have felt everything for you. And all this time, you were never able to say how you feel about me."
In Rebirth, Elijah is packing up Hope's nursery when Hayley finally returns home, she enters the room surprised and mad for what Elijah is doing, she ask him, what he is doing, Elijah says to her "welcome back", because apparently now she doesn't return too much to her home, Hayley upset, says to him that she doesn't need a caretaker because Hybrids are invincible and again, she ask to him what he is doing, Elijah says that as they have discussed, their illusion needs to be flawless and that months have passed so it's the appropriate time to clean, Hayley even more mad said that she and Klaus hold their heads up high and say that they are ready to try again, Elijah tries to talk but she interrupts him, she is mad that Francesca Correa is still alive, as Francesca was the one who tried to kill Hope, Elijah promised to her that she will have her vengeance, then Hayley looks at him and she takes the things that Elijah have in his hands and says that until then, Hope's nursery is her room, and she will tell him when it's appropriate to clean it out. Hayley, upset, moves out of the way so Elijah can leave the room, then he looks at her and leaves the room.
Later, they are reunited with Klaus, talking about their plan to kill Francesca and her clan.
After killing Francesca, Hayley has just returned home and is frantically destroying Hope's nursery, completely overwhelmed by her various emotions. Elijah hears the commotion and runs up to see what is going on, Elijah tries to grab her arms to settle her down, but Hayley backs away from him, Elijah looks at her worried. She says to him that she killed Francesca and that after that, she doesn't feel better and that she doesn't feel anything. Elijah looks at her and says that it's perfectly natural given what she is experiencing but Hayley desperately screams that nothing about her is natural.
Elijah tries to calm her down, by saying that as a hybrid, she will begin to experience feelings with a greater intensity and that it will take time to master control. She shakes her head and starts to cry, she says that she doesn't want to live like this and that she hates it, she start to talk about when she was living with the Crescents in the Bayou, she finally understood the purity of being a wolf, the nobility and now that she killed eight wolves and Francesca who was her own people she doesn't feel noble and that she acted no better than a, she makes a pause and then Elijah is saddened by finished what she will say, a vampire.
She starts to talk in whisper, she says that everything has changed and not just for her, she walks towards him, and says that she saw the way he looked at her before and, she see the way he look at her now, that she was a mother and now she is a monster. Elijah looks at her with sympathy and continue in silence, she says that things are different now and that he can't tell her that they're not. She waits for him to say something, but he remains silent. She leaves the room, Elijah tries to stop her but she doesn't stop or turn back. Elijah stands in the nursery alone and thinks about what has happened.
In Alive and Kicking, Elijah returns home to find a puddle of blood on the floor of the courtyard. When he examines the puddle, he sees a trail of paw prints that eventually turn into human footprints that lead to a dead woman's body, propped up against the fountain. More footprints lead Elijah to the bathroom, where Hayley is taking a bubble bath. Another body is propped up against the wall next to the tub, Elijah arrives and stops at the bathroom door, Hayley ask if he come to check up on her, and Elijah says that she had an eventful evening.
Hayley tells him that she was having a crappy day, so Klaus took her out to the Cauldron and that they ran into some witches. Elijah steps over the body and enters to the bathroom, Hayley rolls her eyes before standing up in the tub, naked and covered in bubbles. Elijah, unamused, reaches for a towel and hands it to Hayley, though he doesn't avert his eyes on her body, Hayley says to him that what she did is no worse than anything Klaus has ever done and Elijah tells to her that he would hope that she would hold herself to a higher standard than Niklaus, Hayley mad says that now that she is a hybrid she has a werewolf temper to go with her new appetite. And, the witches who tried to kill her baby are worth nothing more than food, Hayley puts aside Elijah and returns to her room to change, Elijah just looks at her leaving the bathroom.
Later, Elijah is looking in the balcony at Hayley and Klaus talking, he seems to be sad for their situation. Then, when Klaus leaves, Hayley is talking to two people and Elijah comes down the stairs about to leave his home, he says to her that they both, referring to her and Klaus, have their hands full. Hayley turns to him and ask him if he were just leaving, he says to her that to be perfectly honest with her, the presence of all of them here, it's a little much. Hayley remains in silents looking at him, and then he says that perhaps it's for the best and that she should be with her kind, he leaves, and Hayley stay looking at him dismayed.
In Every Mother's Son, in the courtyard, Hayley is munching on an array of fruit and other breakfast food when Klaus comes down the stairs to join her, Hayley thinks it was Klaus who did it but he denies it, then she says that they have Elijah to thank. Elijah joins them in the courtyard and he says that it wasn't his doing, when Hayley ask, where did this all come from, the silver lid on the platter starts to rattle, startling Hayley and Elijah. Klaus looks uneasy when he lifts the platter, which releases two starlings that fly up toward the ceiling. They all look puzzled and nervous, Klaus reaches for the invitation and opens it. It reads, "Dinner, Your Home, 8PM", Klaus realizes that it is a invitation from their mother.
Klaus is talking about Esther with Hayley in his room, Hayley says to Klaus about her intentions to kill Esther and Elijah enters the room, Elijah tells her that she will do no such thing because Esther's a master in the art of possession and that they must decipher her intentions before she finds a new host. Klaus and Elijah agree to attend the dinner with their mother, then Elijah leaves. Hayley rolls her eyes, Klaus mocks the tension between Elijah and Hayley and then he leaves too.
Later, Hayley meets with Elijah and Klaus at their home and tells them, that Lenore is being held captive in the Quarter and that Oliver is with her, she says that she will go and get her to do the spell but she needs Klaus' necklace. Elijah is concerned about her and tries to say that he doesn't like her plan but she interrupts him and tells him that he doesn't get to ignore her for days and then suddenly act like he is concerned for her, she says that just for once, he will trust her that she'll do something and it will get done. Elijah looks as though he's about to speak, but shuts his mouth at the last moment. Klaus sighs and pulls the necklace out of his pocket and hands it to her. She takes it, Hayley gets ready to leave, but Elijah stops her, she will start discussing because she thinks that Elijah is still disagree but he cuts her off, telling that is something else, he tells her that a disciple of Marcel's was instructed to fetch another ingredient and that she should ask for Gia, Hayley just says "Okay" and then she leaves, once she's gone, Klaus walks towards Elijah and finally ask him what's going on with them both, Elijah says that nothing and that she's stronger, that's all that matters.
When Esther takes possession of the body of Lenore, she offers Hayley a better life with a new body, after Elijah and Klaus arrive to see if Hayley is fine, Elijah throws a threat to Esther if you dare to hurt Hayley but Esther tells him Hayley is free to go, then by order of Klaus, Hayley goes.
Later at the Mikaelson's home, Elijah, Klaus, and Hayley are in the courtyard, processing all that they've learned this evening. Elijah ask Hayley besides the offer of rebirth, what else did Esther say to her, Hayley says that she doesn't know that she blamed the two of you for what happened to Hope and her. Klaus stops pacing and stares at her, he ask if she was thinking of taking her offer, Hayley can't meet Klaus or Elijah's eyes, Klaus gets mad and Hayley says that she lost her daughter and when his mother offered to her a wipe the slate clean, it is normal that she was tempted. Then she turns to Elijah and thanks him for his help, in a bad tone, she says that she's sorry because it takes her being in danger for him to even talk to her, Hayley leaves very upset, Elijah looks as though he's about to stop her, but Klaus calls out to him, and ask Elijah to stay with him.
In Live and Let Die, the Crescent wolves staying at the compound are congregated in the courtyard when Elijah enters, screaming Klaus name, Hayley marches into the room upset and tells him that everyone in that house has supernatural hearing, he ignore her advise and ask her for Klaus, she sarcastically tells him that she isn't his wife, so. Elijah annoyed tells her that the city is under siege by an army of beasts following his deranged mother's every command and that considering it was her people who just declared war on his kind, now's not the best time for her particular brand of sass. Hayley tells him that Klaus left and that she can't help him to find him, she is is about to leave but stops and turns to him, she tells him that those "beasts" that he is referring, they may be under Esther's control and that they're her people. So, if he hurt them, his bitch mother will be the least of his problems. Then she turns to leave, Elijah stands and stares as she walks away, looking unhappy.
Elijah is trained with Gia, and have a very close encounter, they stare each other for a long moment and then Hayley enters saying Elijah's name, she seems to be jealous about the scene that she saw, she tells him that they need to talk, and then Aiden enters who has come for his help. Later, Elijah, Gia, Hayley, and Aiden have been joined by Oliver, Josh, and Marcel. The werewolves explain their dilemma, they all agree on a plan to rescue the teen wolves. Then, the wolves have been rescued, Gia is worried because they abandoned Elijah, Hayley says she worries about many things that are about Elijah, but she knows that he can take good care of himself.
In Red Door, Elijah is captured by Esther, she is forcing him to have dreams. In his dream, a girl with long, wavy brown hair and wearing a long, white dress frantically runs for safety toward a red door at the end of a hall. Elijah, shirtless and covered in blood from head to toe, slowly stalks her as she whimpers in fear and desperately tries to open the door. When the girl turns around, it is revealed that she is Hayley, who looks back at Elijah in sheer terror and continues pounding on the door to no avail. Elijah finally grabs her by the arm and turns her toward him, but it's no longer Hayley, it's Tatia. He grabs her by the hair and turns her neck toward him before vamping-out and feeding on her as she cries in protest. After Elijah awakens, she offers him to have a human body to also have a better future with Hayley, she tells him that they could have a child like the one that Hayley lost, Elijah doesn't want to hear, and she says it's about time that Hayley will become one of his victims as his others lovers Céleste and Tatia.
Later, Elijah is still weakly hanging by his wrists in the crypt, kneeling on the floor, getting ever weaker as Lenore/Esther continues to taunt him, suddenly, Hayley vamp-speeds into the crypt, biting her neck and viciously feeding on her before she falls to the floor. Hayley looks up at Elijah, blood smeared across her face, she tells him that she would have ripped her heart out, but she would have just body jumped. She walks toward Elijah, who slumps over weakly in relief as she attempts to break his chains. However, Esther's spell prevents the chains from being broken. She ask him how do she get these off, and he says that the doll, up there, break it and that she's using it to bind him. Hayley reaches up and rips down the doll before tearing it in half.
She then breaks the chains binding Elijah's wrists and kneels before him to check on him, She tells him that he need to feed but he turns away from her, telling that he can't, she tells him that he is weak and she bites her wrist and offers it to him. Elijah anxious tell him that he can't because he crave her and that his hunger, could overwhelm him. He gasps, trying to control himself, and looks at Hayley's bloody wrist with longing, she caresses his face and tells him that she isn't afraid. They stare at each other for a moment before Hayley leans forward and begins to kiss him. They start making out, both still kneeling on the floor. After a moment, Elijah begins to have trouble resisting her blood. Hayley notices his discomfort and leans back, moving her hair to the side so she can expose her neck to him. His vampire face comes out involuntarily when he sees her pulsing carotid artery, and immediately bites on her to feed.
Then it is revealed that it was all a dream, that Esther is allowing him to have. Back to the dream, Elijah's lip begins to twitch as we return to his dream. He has just stopped feeding on Hayley, and looks at her for a moment. Hayley pants in pleasure, but Elijah is still hungry, and his eye veins darken as he begins to feed on her again. Hayley holds onto him tightly, letting him continue. Esther watches Elijah dream, while Finn looks over at her, concerned.
In Wheel Inside the Wheel, after freeing Elijah, Klaus takes him to their home, leaving Elijah in Hayley's bed, then she enters to her room looking at Elijah worried for his state.
In Chasing the Devil's Tail, Elijah is still unconscious in Hayley's room, Klaus is trying to get into his mind but Hayley interrupts him and asks what is he doing, he tells her that he is trying to enter Elijah's thoughts to wake him. He gestures to Elijah, who is still sleeping fitfully and that Esther's locked him out. Hayley walks over to Elijah, noticing a flower petal-shaped wound on his neck.
Klaus knows what that is and tells her that he will go to in looking for a cure, and that she should stay there with her wolves and mind the fort.
Hayley says that she will rather rip her mother's head off but Klaus serious tells him that Esther already got to her once and that, what would happen if Elijah were to wake and find her a victim of her madness? Hayley remains in silent and then she promise that she won't go after her. Then Klaus leaves and Hayley turns back toward Elijah and approaches the bed to talk to him, she tells him that she has learned a few things from her mother and that she won't go after her, that she will go after everything that she loves.
After finally waking Elijah is talking with Klaus, suddenly, Hayley and Marcel appear in the doorway, Elijah look at her in a sweet way, she smiles and tells him that is good to see him vertical, and tells to him and Klaus that she and Marcel left a gift for them in the ballroom, Hayley and Elijah look at each other and then leave the room, the gift is Kol and Finn captured.
In The Brothers That Care Forgot, Camille and Hayley are talking about Jackson and then Camille says that Jackson knows about Elijah, referring to his relationship with Hayley, Hayley says that since she is a hybrid, she and Elijah barely spoken, she will keep talking but then remains in silent, Camille knows what she would say and ends the sentence for her, saying that he is still under her skin, Hayley looks at her knowingly and seems to agree with her.
Later, Hayley is standing on a street corner near the compound and holds her phone in her hand, unsure of what to do. After a moment, she dials Elijah's number, Elijah is sitting alone in a booth and pulls his phone out of his jacket pocket when he hears it ring. When he sees that it's Hayley, he smiles to himself. He then notices a man sitting at the bar, staring at him as his phone continues to ring. Unnerved, Elijah ultimately ignores the call. Hayley sighs and rolls her eyes when the call goes to voice mail, and she hangs up without leaving a message, looking disappointed.
In The Map of Moments, Elijah is sitting on the porch with Hope, who is sitting in a baby seat. In the yard, Rebekah is setting up firewood, they are talking about the bonfire tradition, suddenly, Klaus and Hayley's black SUV speeds down the driveway, and Klaus barely has time to park before Hayley rushes out of the car and sprints toward Rebekah, Elijah and her daughter.
She stops in her tracks as soon as she sees her, as though she can't believe her eyes. Rebekah and Elijah both smile at her as Klaus catches up with them, and Elijah handing Hope to Hayley, he just smiles to her. Hayley hugs Hope, behind her, Klaus is too overwhelmed to move.

Rebekah says they have to write wishes for each other to burn for luck on the bonfire, Hayley rushes inside of the house for paper. Rebekah, pleased, turns to her brothers and smiles smugly.

Then, for the safety of Hope, Klaus says that the photo has to be burned, Hayley and Elijah look at each other, both visibly sad, and Hayley takes a good, long look at the photo before reluctantly throwing it into the bonfire.
Later in the night, Hayley walks into the living room, where Elijah is sitting by the fireplace, and stops in the doorway, she says that Hope is sleeping and that is a quiet now that Rebekah and Klaus are gone. She pauses, and star to talk, she says that they didn't get to say their wishes. She ask to Elijah if she can tell him her wishes, Elijah looks at her quizzically. She says, that it's a hope and that hope is that he'll understand what she have to tell him, Elijah looks confused and ask what is that, Hayley starts talking about how she figured out a way to release the wolves from the witches and that they could control their turning without the rings, and bring peace to their home so that Hope could return to them. Then, she say that there's a catch and that she have to marry Jackson. Elijah is completely stunned speechless, she explains to him about the ceremony, Elijah turns toward the window, and Hayley walks closer to him, she says to him that she know that them haven't been close recently but that he have to know that the marriage isn't about Jackson, that doesn't love Jackson but at the same time she couldn't marry him and still be involved with Elijah. Hayley looks overwhelmed and then she turns to leave, but Elijah rushes after her and grabs her by the arm to turn her toward him. He reaches around her waist and pulls her toward him so he can kiss her passionately, a kiss which Hayley returns.
After a moment, he pulls away and says to her "Marry him" Hayley is surprised about what Elijah says, he brushes a lock of hair off of Hayley's face and take her face in his hands then he starts to talk, he says to her that the only way that the city will be safe for Hope's return is if she have unified her people, and if he have unified his own, he says that she need to do whatever is and bring her daughter to home again, that is his wish for her.
Hayley slowly reaches up and caresses Elijah's face with her hand. They stare at each other for a long moment before they both lunge for each other and start kissing even more passionately. Elijah picks her up and wraps her legs around his waist before vamp-speeding them against the bookshelf, where he pulls off Hayley's jacket.

After a moment, Elijah appears in the doorway and watches them silently for a moment before knocking on the door to get her attention. When Hayley sees him, she smiles, and he watches her as she stands to her feet. He is entranced by her beauty and tells her that she is perfect, then he hesitates for a moment and says that he understand that the arrangement is important for her cause, and he will do nothing to dissuade her from it but he would be remiss if he didn't tell her, at least once, then she quietly cuts him off and tells him to don't say it. She starts to talk telling him that she knows, ever since the first day that she met him, she have felt everything for him and that all the time, he was never able to say how he feels about her and that she understand it but unlike him, that can't say how he feels, Jackson does and she thinks that she can be happy with him.

Hayley and Elijah's conversation is interrupted by Rebekah, who rushes over to them.
In Exquisite Corpse, Elijah and Gia, who are dressed up in cocktail attire again, are standing in Josephine's living room with Hayley. She seems to sense the budding relationship between Elijah and Gia, and keeps clearing her throat awkwardly, which does not go unnoticed by either of them. After an uncomfortable silence, Gia finally speaks up, she says that she is going to find Josephine, Hayley smiles falsely as Gia leaves, and once she's gone, she clears her throat again and gives Elijah a significant look. He can't help but smile bashfully in response as they wait for their hostess.
Hayley sarcastically says that now she knows why he didn't answer her calls. She pauses a beat and sits in a chair, she asks if Gia have to come with them, Elijah sits next to her, telling that Josephine LaRue can be rather recalcitrant and that she is enamored with Gia's musical prowess and cavalier spirit.

He hands her a robe, and she puts it on before giving Elijah a big hug. She stares him and asks him how is Hope, he says that she's safe and well, according to Freya. He hesitates for a moment, he touch her face and hair with his hand and promises to her that by whatever means necessary, he will release her from the curse. Hayley looks at him and tells him that she want to him to make her another promise, she says that she can't let Klaus be the only thing that Hope knows and that she need him to be there for her, because Hope needs him.

Elijah walks into the room, and Hayley returns to packing turning her back to him, they start to talk and Elijah holds out his hand, which has a set of keys on a key ring hanging from his index finger, telling her that they will be very comfortable.

In A Walk on the Wild Side, Elijah is in the middle of his own workout at the new gym Marcel has set up at St. Anne's church, when he turns around, he sees that Hayley has entered the room with a small card in her hands.

She waves the invitation in the air and gives Elijah a look as he walks over to pluck the invite out of her hands to read it for himself, Elijah continues to skim the invitation, which reads in full "You are cordially invited to an evening of exquisite excess. The Davilla Estate, 7041 St. Charles Avenue. Midnight," along with Tristan's personal note at the end that Hayley read aloud, Elijah says to her that it isn't of her concern, Elijah starts to walk past Hayley, but she grabs him by the arm and stops him, Hayley says that it is, Hayley then vamp-speeds them both over to the cage, where she pins him to the chain-link wall by the throat, she says that he need to cut the protective macho crap and tell her what's going on because she is part of the family too, Elijah, who looks surprised by her tenacity, spins them so he is now pinning Hayley against the wall by her wrists and ask her what do she want to know.

Hayley is in Rebekah's old room at the compound, where she's searching through a stack of clothes she's laid out on her bed for an outfit for The Strix's party and muttering to herself under her breath. Hayley is searching a Rebekah's dress, Just then, Elijah enters the room from behind her and smiles. He's already dressed in his tuxedo, though his bow-tie is still hanging loose and untied around his neck, he says "May I?", he searches through the pile of dresses until he finds a bright red taffeta gown with open shoulders and hands it to Hayley, who smiles sheepishly as she ducks into the attached bathroom to change into it, Elijah tries to avert his eyes while she gets dressed until she finally comes out in the dress, which fits her perfectly, he sees her with admiration, he says that he take it that her husband is fine with tonight's little adventure, Hayley looks uncomfortable as she smooths out the skirt of her dress, she says to him that Jackson's cool because he knows that she can handle herself. Elijah gives her a significant look because he is not talking about that, she says that she knows about what he means. Both of them look awkward for a long moment until Hayley changes the subject, she asks what exactly she is walking into tonight and Elijah mocking says, that only the most dangerous and influential congregation of vampires the world has ever known.
Hayley and Elijah arrive to the party and stop in the doorway as they take in the environment. Their arrival seems to have generated a lot of attention, as many of the guests are staring at Elijah curiously, which unnerves Hayley. She asks why are they all staring at him and he says that is because he is kind of a big deal around there. Hayley's eyes widen in realization as they head toward the bar across the room. She asks to him if all them are part of his sireline, Elijah tells her that most of them and tells her a bit of their story.
Hayley and Elijah are dancing together in the middle of the ballroom while they talk, Hayley asks where is Tristan, Elijah gets distracted by the sight of Marcel with Aya across the ballroom before he can reply. Hayley, seeing the concerned look on his face, frowns. She asks what is wrong, Marcel turns his head and realizes that not only are Elijah and Hayley there, but Elijah is staring at him. Marcel looks over at Aya with a tense expression, Hayley asks to Elijah, what is Marcel doing there and he says that it's not a party but an initiation. Just then, a row of caterers with trays of champagne flutes walk into the room and tap their glasses with butter knives to get the attention of the party as Tristan, dressed in a fine suit, makes his arrival to the gathering known, the initiation for Marcel had started, Marcel looks down at his hand and realizes that his daylight ring has vanished from his right middle finger. He frowns worriedly, not knowing what to expect. While Hayley suddenly turns to Elijah and say quietly in his ear, Hayley looks shocked and worried at this sudden turn of events. But Elijah hold back her arm in a comforting manner while keeping his eyes on Tristan, as if telling her to wait and see what happens next.
After the break, Elijah and Hayley are once again standing at the bar and discussing these newest developments. She says that those vampires are ancient and asks to Elijah how is Marcel supposed to beat one of them. Just then, Tristan appears behind them to join their conversation, he turns to address Hayley personally.

In the morning, Elijah has just returned home and is standing on the balcony outside his bedroom, which looks across the street to the Kenner apartment. After a moment, Hayley walks out onto her own balcony which faces him. Like Elijah, Hayley is still in her gown from the party, and both look exhausted as they begin to speak to each other. Though they're talking at normal volume, their vampire hearing allows them to hear each other perfectly. She says that she finally got Hope to sleep, she also says that she will have to explain that family to Hope someday and that she will not lie to her, Hayley says that she will start her story with "Always and forever", Elijah smiles at her for those words.

In The Other Girl in New Orleans, at Hayley's insistence, she helps Elijah and Freya interrogate Tristan to try and find information out about the Strix's secrets and plans for the Mikaelson family. Especially since the sirelines are in danger, Elijah is more than curious to try and pry the information out of Tristan, no matter what the consequences of what happens to Tristan. Elijah even allows Hayley to bite Tristan and try to torture the information out of Tristan, but this doesn't work and Tristan escapes when Marcel, Aya and the Strix bust him out of the Mikaelson Compound. Later, Marcel promises to give Elijah any future information regarding the Strix's plans and secrets now that Marcel was in the upper hierarchy of the Strix's details.
Hayley later comes home to her husband and Hope Mikaelson celebrating Thanksgiving with Mary Dumas. Jackson begins to question her about her loyalties, which Hayley argues back saying that their safety was her number one concern that night.

Meanwhile, a newly-in-transition-Camille O'Connell assists the Mikaelsons by playing as Aurora to lure Tristan into a magical trap. When Tristan is trapped in a shipping container, he is forced to say last goodbyes to Hayley before he is to suffer an eternity of drowning as a vampire. Elijah stands protectively behind Hayley as she walks up to the entrance of the shipping container. Elijah stays silent with pity for her as Hayley bitterly tells Tristan that she hopes that he remembers her face for all time as he drowns alone for eternity. Tristan glares at them before Elijah lets Hayley shut the container door on Tristan. Elijah continues to watch over her as the rest of the Mikaelsons make sure that Tristan is taken care of.
In Wild at Heart, Elijah and Klaus discuss and argue about what they are to do with Cami's new status as a vampire and her unpredictably new personality. Hayley surprises the brothers by emerging from a room. Elijah notices how tired and depressed she looks, due to mourning over Jackson, and shows pity for her. Hayley tells them that she was the last person who saw Cami before she left the Mikaelson Compound with Klaus' toy from centuries ago (which holds White Oak Ash that could kill the Originals). Elijah and Klaus are slightly pleased when she updates them on Cami's whereabouts. Hayley then asks them if she could stay with Hope in the Mikaelson Compound for a few days. Hayley explains that the apartment reminds her too much of Jackson before his death and Elijah gladly welcomes her back to the Compound.
In Dead Angels, Hayley enters a room where Elijah is in and they begin to discuss Cami's whereabouts. Elijah tells Hayley to let Klaus worry about Cami and that they should focus on the problems dealing with the Strix. Elijah then mentions Aya and Hayley immediately suggests they kill her. Elijah argues against that offer and Hayley wonders why, but Hayley immediately figures out that Elijah and Aya had "a thing" centuries ago. Hayley reacts disgusted and jealously to this information and Elijah begins to tell her about his past with Aya, which is shown as a flashback. Elijah also admits that he was forced to abandon her and the newly-formed Strix being Mikael, his father, was chasing him and the Mikaelsons down at the time. After Elijah tells Hayley his story with Aya, Hayley grumpily asks him what he plans to do in order to distract Aya. Though not immediately revealed, Elijah distracted Aya by trying to reclaim his right as leader to the Strix, which Aya was his opponent against.

Hayley and Stefan fight off whoever is protecting Aurora and they successfully capture who is needed for Freya to conduct a spell to save Elijah and Klaus from being trapped in another realm of reality with the de Martel siblings. Freya later successfully brings Elijah and Klaus out of a mind-trapped world, also known as Representational Magic.
In An Old Friend Calls, Marcel confronts Elijah about members of the Strix going missing and Elijah claims that he has no idea what is happening to them. Later, Elijah discovers that Hayley is the one killing dozens of Strix members. Hayley explains that killing certain members of the Strix (also only the members who organized Jackson's death) was from her and that was her way of coping with Jackson's death. She also explained to Elijah that she felt like she owed Jackson to find the ones responsible for his death. Shortly afterwards, Marcel confronts them both and Elijah lies to Marcel about not finding out who was killing the Strix members yet. Although unsaid, Hayley was grateful to Elijah for covering for her and they later burn the completed hitlist in the Mikaelson Compound's fireplace. This was Hayley's way of burning out the last of her plots for vengeance against those responsible for Jackson's death. During this moment, Hayley admits her love to Elijah, but she promises not to pursue him in respect for Jackson.

Later, Hayley is seen in a car with Klaus and their baby, Hope. Hayley mentions that she has nothing left in New Orleans, which most likely references to Elijah and Hayley's relationship and Jackson's death. Klaus, also recently rejected by Cami, explains that they have more things in common than they realize, which may reference to their very complicated love lives. Elijah watches Hayley leave with Klaus and Hope and Freya remarks that the Compound is going to be silent for awhile. Elijah gruffly agrees as he walks back inside the Compound after Hayley's car is out of sight.

In The Feast of All Sinners, Rebekah makes Elijah notice that if Kol doesn't show up in time for the ritual, Hayley will have to take his place, which means that Elijah will have to part ways with her as well. Elijah refuses to let this happen not because of his relationship with Hayley, which he is willing to sacrifice for Hope, but because Klaus, Hayley and Hope must remain together. Later, Elijah tries to apologize to Hayley for what happened inside Freya's pendant. He tells her that even if he can't stop being who he is, he also can't stop loving her, and he asks her what she wants him to do. Hayley replies that she needs him to bring Hope home. After Hope has been successfully brought back in the Abattoir, Hayley decides to talk to Elijah before it's too late. She tells him that what happened in the pendant doesn't take away what they had but Elijah interrupts her saying that he knows that their love story is over. He also tells her that they were doomed and that the best thing he can do for her is disappear. Then they kiss. After the ritual, they briefly look at each other and then Elijah leaves, knowing that he will never see her again.
In What, Will, I, Have, Left, Elijah and Hayley have a brief reunion just outside New Orleans. With his memories gone, Elijah was positive he needed to protect Antoinette Sienna’s adoptive brother from Klaus and the rest of his former family, which included Hayley. When Elijah showed up to the house that Hayley’s werewolf side was binded in, he briefly glanced at her before rushing to save an incapacitated Roman. Hayley, while being held at the throat by Greta Sienna, whispered Elijah’s name in hopes he would help her and Hope get away from the Sienna’s. However, she shortly realized that Elijah did not remember Hayley and was not going to help her out. Hayley decided her sacrifice herself to save Hope and Klaus, and killed Greta in the process, by vamp-speeding into the sunlight, which burnt Hayley and Greta to death. Elijah watched, with Klaus watching too and nearly in tears, as Hayley’s body burned in the sunlight. Although Elijah does not regret saving Roman for his new fiancée and losing Hayley in the process, he still looked perplexed as Hayley’s body burned.
In The Kindness of Strangers, Elijah finally regained all his memories and was very shocked, guilt-ridden and devastated upon remembering Hayley's death, falling to his knees and crying uncontrollably. He later visited Hayley's grave during sunrise and was visibly saddened.
Elijah: "Relax. If you open your mind to me, I can show you."
Elijah: "In the beginning, our family was human... A thousand years ago, now."
Elijah: "That is, however, until one night, our youngest brother was killed by our village's greatest threat."
Elijah: "Men that could transform themselves into wolves during the full moon. Our family was devastated, none more than Niklaus. Desperate to protect the rest of us, our father forced our mother to call upon her black magic in order to make us stronger."
Elijah: "Thus, the first vampires were born. But with this speed, this strength, this immortality, came a terrible hunger. No one felt this hunger more than Niklaus."
Hayley: "I'm Hayley, by the way. You should probably know my name if you're gonna tell me your whole life story. I mean, I know yours. Your family is legendary. Your brother is a notorious psycho... who I slept with. Classic me."
Elijah: "I cannot excuse his behavior, but you must understand, when our father hunted him – hunted us – for centuries, every time we found a moment of happiness, we were forced to flee. Even here, in New Orleans, where we were happiest of all. Not long after Niklaus broke the spell which prevented him from becoming a hybrid, he defeated our father. I thought this would make him happy. He was angrier than ever. I wonder if perhaps this baby might be a way for my brother to find happiness. A way to save him from himself."
Elijah: "Yes, it should serve our purposes. It's a sanctuary from our business in the Quarter. Right now, you are the most important person in this family. You need a good home. So I'm curious... in all this time, has anyone asked you how you feel?"
Hayley: "About having a miracle baby with a psychotic one-night-stand?"
Hayley: "I – I was abandoned when I was born and my adoptive parents kicked me out the second that I turned into a wolf. So... I don't really know how I feel about being a mother because I... I never really had a good one."
Elijah: "I will always protect you. You have my word on that."
Elijah: "You know, I do hope my siblings were hospitable to you, in my absence."
Hayley: "In your absence, as you like to call it, which is a way-too-polite way of saying that your brother put a dagger in your heart... I have been attacked by French Quarter vampires, I've had to live in a house with a secret dungeon full of coffins, and I was nearly murdered by witches who are convinced my baby is Lucifer."
Hayley: "Oh...milk. They've been fine. Your siblings are weirdly protective, I know I have you to thank for that."
Elijah: "I'm just happy to see that you're in one piece. So, back to the murderous witches. I have some concerns."
Hayley: "They're evil. And, my life is still magically linked to Sophie Deveraux, which is not comforting."
Elijah: "Yes, I think it's time we took care of that little problem."
Rebekah: "I am all for it. As soon as they're unlinked, we get to leave this crap town. Who do we have to kill?"
Elijah: "[sighs] Perhaps I was too willing to condemn him. In the thousand years that we have been together, my brother has committed numerous unspeakable acts. But, then again, so has Rebekah. So have I."
Hayley: "So did I, the last time I was in Cabo. [Elijah stares at her, confused] We've all done bad things. It's just, most people die before the list gets embarrassing. But, don't for a second compare yourself to Klaus."
Hayley: "It's like a freaking hot box in here, I'm gonna get some air."
Elijah: "She died because of me. Because I cared too deeply for her. I had allowed my brother to slip through my grasp. I loosened the reigns while Celeste consumed my every moment. I had abandoned him in the name of my own happiness. Celeste payed the price."
Hayley: "I don't get it. (She shakes her head.) Why are we here? Why are you trying to put together your family when it's so clear that one part of it is broken?"
Elijah: "To me, the very definition of the word "broken" suggests that something can be fixed. I have a whole eternity to accomplish one single task: My brother's salvation. If I surrender this, then tell me what value would I be to my family, to myself, to ... to your child?"
Elijah: "Please, Hayley. You've seen what happens."
Elijah: "Come, we mustn't linger. We'll get you some place safe."
Hayley: "No, you don't have to worry about me. I'm fine. I've been deemed under protection by the almighty Klaus. It's the werewolves who need help. He ordered a wolf hunt as some jacked-up peace offering to Marcel's crew. You have to help them."
Rebekah: "Out in the bayou? Do we look like a bloody vampire-rescue-squad? I think you should be grateful we came to save you!"
Hayley: "Listen. Rebekah. All my life, I've wanted to know who my real family was, and just as I find out that they're out there in the bayou, Klaus orders them killed. You wanna help me? Help my people. Please."
Elijah: "You don't have to eavesdrop. I keep nothing from you."
Hayley: "Yeah. Well, I don't want to keep anything from you either, and if you're going out to see Sophie, then there's something that you should know. She called me and asked me for a favor. She promised me that she would help break the curse that Marcel put on my people in exchange for some information. And I didn't think anything of it, but then Davina started doing those pictures of Celeste..."
Hayley: "Sophie wanted to find Celeste's remains, so I went through your journals, and I found out where you buried her, and then I told her. I know it was stupid and it was snoopy, And I... I should have just asked you... Please say something. Please."
Elijah: "She wanted to be left in peace. When a witch's remains are consecrated, that power fuels the rest of their community. Celeste did not want her remains to be found. She made me promise to bury her where she would not be found. You not only violated my privacy, you have broken my promise to her."
Elijah: "No. Do you have any idea how rare love is? In a thousand years, I have found it but twice, and when I have, I have honored it."
Hayley: "I know what a promise means to you, Elijah, but you made it 200 years ago. I live in the now. If I feel something, I act. If I want something, I take it. I won't choose the dead over the living, so why are you?"
Hayley: "Yeah. Morbid, I know. I was just thinking, we never figured out why she drew those pictures of Celeste. Anyway, I'm just killing time now that I'm on vampire lock down."
Elijah: "Whoever did this, we will deal with them. It won't be long."
Hayley: "I'm not worried. Just think it's kind of funny that it took some big, supernatural threat for you to even come into the same room as me."
Elijah: "I do apologize if you feel neglected. I have been occupied. My siblings are in some quarrel. Niklaus remains agitated. You'll recall that even our slightest interactions seem to infuriate him."
Hayley: "So Klaus is a dick, and you want to be a good big brother. So we can't hang out. That sum it up? I get it, Elijah. It just seems like a really crappy deal."
Elijah: "Céleste forced me to make a choice between yourself and my siblings and now she means to mock that choice, taunting me with a childish game. The longer the game, the more they suffer. To find Klaus and Rebekah, we need to solve this riddle. The solution lies somewhere in these names."
Marcel: "The name next to Sabine… Annie La Fleur, she's the witch that was shunned from her coven just over a year ago. Never knew why but I can find out."
Hayley: "Ask Marcel if he knows anything about a name on that list, "Brynne Deveraux". Sophie said that it was her family's bloodline that put the curse on the crescent wolves, but Céleste said that she was the only one that could break it. If Brynne Deveraux was actually Celeste when she cast the spell, then maybe Celeste can still break it."
Elijah: "Diego, sit. We are not dividing the city. We're establishing boundaries."
Hayley: "No, Elijah! There is not gonna be a peace if the werewolves are excluded. They want a seat at the table. And if they don't get one, I can guarantee that you will all regret it."
Elijah: "Do you have any idea what it took just to get those people in one room together?"
Hayley: "No, actually, I don't because I didn't even know what you were doing out here until someone else told me. Tell me something, Elijah. Did you leave the werewolves out because of me?"
Elijah: "I excluded them because they no longer reside in the french quarter. My immediate concern is to end the mounting conflict here. Now I can assure you once this treaty is solidified it will expand to include your people."
Hayley: "And until then, I should tell them what? Sit, stay, roll over? I would prefer that you remove yourself from the process altogether."
Elijah: "Hayley, are you absolutely certain that you shouldn't return to the compound?"
Hayley: "You think the baby belongs there? You think that's where she'll be safe?"
Hayley: "What's stopping you? Kill him. Go ahead, Elijah. Do it. I mean, it's not like he doesn't deserve to die. I mean, it was Oliver who handed Rebekah over to the witches so they could torture her, but then again, wasn't it Diego who led a werewolf massacre last month? And the witches cursed the wolves, while the humans stood back and let it all happen, so when you think about it, everyone here deserves to die."
Hayley: "What's the deal with these moonlight rings? Oliver's trying to set a revolution every five seconds, people are scared, angry, and frankly, I'm tired of stalling."
Klaus: "It's a day of peace, Hayley. Try and enjoy it. And, in the meantime, with all manner of unknown enemies conspiring against our family, you'll move back in with us."
Hayley: "Awesome! Then, we can do that thing where you lock me in the tower, I escape, there's drama, and then you two both realize I'm very capable of looking after myself."
Klaus: "The rings are in progress. I will live up to my word. We will find and punish whoever launched the attack on the bayou, and you will return to the compound for your own safety! But, right now, I'm gonna finish this bottle, and the next, in the hopes of drowning the demon who has chosen today to haunt me. Cheers, Mikael. Impeccable, Freudian timing."
Elijah: "I understand he risked his life to save his friend. He's a good man."
Hayley: "Yes, he is. Elijah... there's something that I need to tell you. My family... wanted me... I was supposed to be betrothed to Jackson. I wanted to tell you sooner, I-I just didn't know how, it's this insane custody--"
Elijah: " No, no, you don't have to explain it. I understand the need to make sacrifices for one's family."
Hayley: "Come on, Elijah. For once in your immortal life, can you just not be so noble?"
Elijah: "All of your scheming, the enemies that you have made every single day of your miserable life-- what results did you expect? That your child would be born into a happy life? That the mother would be alive to know her daughter? That we could live and thrive as some- as some sort of family?"
Klaus: "That was your fantasy, brother, not mine!"
Elijah: "No, brother! This was our hope. This was our family's hope. And now she is gone. Do you understand? I let this person in. I let her in! I don't let people in! You knew this. You've taken her from me! I needed her, and you've broken me."
Klaus: "You can tell your niece how much you cared for her mother when we save her."
Elijah: " We've passed through here twice already. We're running out of time."
Hayley: " I don't care about me. I'm gonna go find our daughter."
Hayley: "There's a third option. I grew up in a warzone. My parents thought they could protect me. But, in the end, they were slaughtered, and I spent my childhood alone and unloved. I made a promise, to my baby, and to myself, that she would not grow up like I did. That she would grow up safe, and loved. And yet, here she is, on her first day in this world, with a grandmother who is bent on sacrificing her, and a-a mother, who has to drink the blood of her own baby to survive transitioning into a hybrid. And I'm the one who loves her the most."
Hayley: "I think the only thing to do is... send her away, while we stay behind and clean up the mess that we've made."
Elijah: "No! This is insane. You heard Genevieve-- so long as she lives, that baby will be hunted."
(Flashback to earlier, when Hayley killed Francesca by biting her neck and feeding on her to death)
Hayley: " Francesca looked me in the eye and begged me for her life as I tore her apart. But I don't feel better! I don't feel peace! I don't feel anything.
Elijah: " It's perfectly natural given what you're experiencing--
Hayley: " Nothing about what I am, Elijah, is natural!
Elijah: " [trying to calm her] As a hybrid, you will begin to experience feelings with a greater intensity. It will take time to master control.
Hayley: " I don't want to live like this, Elijah. I hate it! When I was living with the Crescents in the Bayou, I finally understood the... purity of being a wolf... the nobility. [beat] I killed eight wolves tonight before I got to Francesca. Eight of my own people. What's noble about that? I acted no better than a...
Hayley: " Everything has changed. And not just for me. [she walks toward him] I saw the way you looked at me before. And, I see the way you look at me now. I was a mother, and now I'm a monster. [Elijah looks at her with sympathy] Things are different now. You can't tell me that they're not.
(She waits for him to say something, but he remains silent. She leaves the room)
Hayley: " I was having a crappy day, so Klaus took me out to the Cauldron. Wouldn't you know, we ran into some witches!
Elijah: " [sarcastically] So, would you like me to remove your leftovers?
(Elijah steps over the body and enters to the bathroom, Hayley rolls her eyes before standing up in the tub, naked and covered in bubbles. Elijah, unamused, reaches for a towel and hands it to Hayley, though he doesn't avert his eyes on her body)
Hayley: " Oh, don't judge, Elijah! What I did is no worse than anything Klaus has ever done.
Elijah: " I would hope that you would hold yourself to a higher standard than Niklaus.
Hayley: " I'm a hybrid now, and I have a werewolf temper to go with my new appetite. And, the witches who tried to kill my baby are worth nothing more than food. Excuse me.
(Hayley scoots past Elijah and returns to her room to change)
(Hayley is talking to two persons and Elijah is coming down the stairs about to leave home.)
Hayley: " [frowns] Then, where did this all come from?
(The silver lid on the platter starts to rattle, startling Hayley and Elijah. Klaus looks uneasy when he lifts the platter, which releases two starlings that fly up toward the ceiling while the three reflexively duck. They all look puzzled and nervous)
Hayley: " [cuts him off] No. You don't get to ignore me for days and then suddenly act like you're concerned, Elijah. Just, for once, please, will you trust me that I'll do something and it will get done?
(Elijah looks as though he's about to speak, but shuts his mouth at the last moment. Klaus sighs and pulls the necklace out of his pocket and hands it to her. She takes it)
Hayley: " [sarcastically] I'll check his calendar... Wait, no. Not his wife, so...
Elijah: " [annoyed] Hayley, this city is under siege by an army of beasts following my deranged mother's every command. Now, considering it was your people who just declared war on my kind, now's not the best time for your particular brand of sass.
Hayley: " [unamused] Klaus left a while ago. If you want to find him, I can't help you. If only there was a magical device that people used to call people? I don't know, I'm out of ideas. Good luck.
(she turns and walks away, but stops and turns back at the last moment)
Hayley: "Oh! One more thing, Elijah-- those "beasts" that you're referring to? They may be under Esther's control, but, like you said, they're my people. So, if you hurt them, your bitch mother will be the least of your problems.
(She turns to leave. Elijah stands and stares as she walks away, looking unhappy)
(Elijah and Gia are training, Gia has her hand into Elijah's chest and grabs his heart. Hayley enters the apartment and is horrified)
Esther: " You must be afraid that-- that loving you will destroy her! As it destroyed Celeste. Tatia. Take my offer. Both of you. In new bodies, you will be alive again! You could give her a child, to replace the one she lost.
Esther: " I'm afraid we've just begun. You will hang here, remembering. Every atrocity you've hid behind that door will emerge to haunt you. And, as you grow weaker, you will be ripped of your strength, your will, your hope. And, as you rot here, alone, you will reconsider my offer. A new life. A way to be freed of your demons. A chance at peace.
(Suddenly, Hayley vamp-speeds into the crypt, biting her neck and viciously feeding on her before she falls to the floor. Hayley looks up at Elijah, blood smeared across her face)
Hayley: " [flips her hair back] Huh! That's about enough of that, don't you think? I would have ripped her heart out, but she would have just body jumped.
(She walks toward Elijah, who slumps over weakly in relief as she attempts to break his chains. However, Esther's spell prevents the chains from being broken)
Hayley: " You're weak. [she bites her wrist and offers it to him]
Elijah: " [anxious] I can't! I crave you. My hunger, it could overwhelm me.
(He gasps, trying to control himself, and looks at Hayley's bloody wrist with longing)
Hayley: " [caresses his face] Look at me. I'm not afraid.
(Then she start to kissing him, Hayley notices his discomfort for the blood and leans back, moving her hair to the side so she can expose her neck to him. His vampire face comes out involuntarily when he sees her pulsing carotid artery, and immediately bites on her to feed. Then is revealing that the past scene was just a dream that Elijah was having.)
(Elijah is still unconscious in Hayley's room, Klaus is trying to get into his mind but Hayley interrupts him. After knowing what's happening to Elijah, Klaus will find a cure and Hayley wants to help.)
Klaus: " [serious] Stay clear of her. I mean it, Hayley. She already got to you once. What would happen if Elijah were to wake and find you a victim of her madness?
Hayley: " [reluctant] I won't go after her. I promise.
(Klaus looks at her for a moment before turning and leaving. Hayley turns back toward Elijah and approaches the bed to talk to him)
Hayley: " [quietly] I've learned a few things from your mother. I won't go after her. I'll go after everything that she loves.
(After After finally waking Elijah is talking with Klaus, suddenly, Hayley and Marcel appear in the doorway, Elijah look at her in a sweet way, she smiles)
Elijah: " [laughs] I suspect Niklaus would rather choke on the ashes.
Hayley: " [confused] What are you all talking about?
Rebekah: " Well, before we light it, we write down our wishes for each other to burn for luck! It was Kol's favorite part when we were kids!
Klaus: " It's further evidence as to why we should ignore it!
Hayley: " Hope's first bonfire season. I like it! [She smiles] We're doing it!
(Hayley rushes inside for paper. Rebekah, pleased, turns to her brothers and smiles smugly)
(Hayley walks into the living room, where Elijah is sitting by the fireplace, and stops in the doorway)
Hayley She's asleep. [Elijah looks up at her] It's so quiet, with Klaus and Rebekah gone. [She pauses] So, we didn't get to say our wishes. Can I tell you mine? [Elijah looks at her quizzically] It's a hope, actually... that you'll understand what I have to tell you.
Hayley: " My wolves. I think I figured out a way to release them from the witches... They could control their turning without the rings, and bring peace to our home so that Hope could return to us. But, there's a catch... I have to marry Jackson.
(Elijah is completely stunned speechless)
Hayley: " It's a, um, mystical ceremony, and-and an alpha bonding ritual...?
(Elijah turns toward the window, and Hayley walks closer to him)
Hayley: " Elijah... I know that you and I haven't been close recently, but... you have to know that this isn't about him. I don't love Jackson, but... at the same time, I couldn't marry him and still be involved with you. [Hayley looks overwhelmed] I don't know, I should just--
(She turns to leave, but Elijah rushes after her and grabs her, they share a passionate kiss, after a moment, he pulls away)
Elijah: " [brushes a lock of hair off of Hayley's face and cups her face in his hands] Listen to me-- the only way that this city will be safe for Hope's return is if you have unified your people, and I have unified my own. Now, Davina will eventually lead her witches, and whatever that girl may be, she is no enemy to your child. Do what you need to bring your daughter home. This is my wish for you.
(Hayley slowly reaches up and caresses Elijah's face with her hand, they start kissing passionately and apparently end up having sex]</nowiki>
Hayley: " Uh, no. I mean, I was just thinking that if we're going through with this marriage, I wanna do it right, and I wanna be honest with you. [Jackson looks at her nervously as Hayley takes a deep breath] The last couple of days, when I was gone? The truth is... I was with Elijah.
Klaus to Elijah: " Everyone knows you're in love with her. But, Hayley has a duty to this family, and so do you.
(Hayley is with Hope in her room, after a moment, Elijah appears in the doorway and watches them silently for a moment before knocking on the door to get her attention. When Hayley sees him, she smiles, and he watches her as she stands to her feet)
Elijah: " You look perfect. [He hesitates for a moment] Hayley, I understand that this arrangement is important to your cause, and I will do nothing to dissuade you from it. I would be remiss if I didn't tell you, at least once--
(quietly cuts him off)
Hayley: " Don't. Don't say it. You know, ever since the first day that I met you, I have felt everything for you. And all this time, you were never able to say how you feel about me. And I get it-- you can't just be the guy who says how he feels. [She looks down at her engagement ring and wrings her hands nervously] But Jackson is. And I think that I can be happy with him. [Elijah looks at her with tears in his eyes, and silently starts to cry] And I just wanna be happy, Elijah. So, whatever you're going to say to me... [She shakes her head] Please don't say it.
(Elijah looks devastated, but nods in understanding before leaving the room without another word. Hayley looks sad and guilty)
(Elijah is walking down the hall upstairs when Hayley approaches him from behind. Elijah, sensing her presence, stops, but doesn't turn around)
(Elijah and Gia, who are dressed up in cocktail attire again, are standing in Josephine's living room with Hayley. She seems to sense the budding relationship between Elijah and Gia, and keeps clearing her throat awkwardly, which does not go unnoticed by either of them. After an uncomfortable silence, Gia finally speaks up)
(Hayley looks embarrassed and guilty for her words, but remains silent as she squeezes Hope protectively)
Elijah: " Now, gather what wolves you have. With Vincent by her side, she will strike with considerable force.
(Hayley and Gia are talking)
Gia: " [walks toward them with Hope's music box in her hand] Elijah says you and your kid have more than one enemy. If someone manages to make it through that dog-show outside, you and the baby run, I stay and stall them.
Hayley: " [confused] You don't even know me. Why would you put yourself in harm's way for us?
Gia: " [pauses for a moment] I don't have to know you-- I know Elijah, and I know what you mean to him. :'(Hayley looks uncomfortable)
Hayley: " [awkwardly] He... talks about me with you?
Gia: " [laughs nervously] No... but, I'm not blind. It's pretty obvious you had the guy all bent out of shape. Look, after you guys got married, we started hanging out. He was just so... wound up. [Hayley looks guilty and stares at the floor] I guess it must be tough to spend a thousand years being the shoulder everyone else leans on. Maybe he... just needs to live his life for himself, for once.
(Hayley, Elijah, Rebekah, Freya and Klaus are talking about Dahlia)
Hayley: " Well, if she was watching us, she would know that we have our own army.
Elijah: " She also knows where we are. And, given the immense nature of her power, we simply do not know what to expect from her. What we need is to create a new stronghold. Something that Dahlia knows nothing about. A sanctuary from any witchcraft.
(Elijah has finally arrived home after helping Josephine and Marcel create the new safe house, and he is very unhappy to find out from Hayley and Rebekah that Freya has left)
(Elijah has just made it to the safe house, where Hayley is updating him on what happened)
Hayley: " Of course I tried to call you, Elijah! But since Dahlia was able to take down both Klaus and Mikael, I'm guessing that a cell phone tower was a piece of cake.
Elijah: " [unhappy] And where were the wolves who stood guard?
Hayley: " [frustrated] Getting their asses handed to them by Dahlia, just like Klaus did.
(Klaus arrives just then and joins them in the jazz club, Klaus starts to discuss with Hayley and Elijah intervenes.)
Elijah: "" Both of you, please-- we're playing into Dahlia's hands.
Klaus: "" Not doing as I say plays into her hands! While you two have been kow-towing to Freya and devising ways to flee with your tail between your legs, I've been forging a new path. I know what Freya was planning, and I know how to kill Dahlia.
(Elijah, Hayley, and Klaus are still arguing at the safe house, Jackson enters to the house, Hayley and Elijah turn to look at Jackson, who comes in with Aiden's body over his shoulder, after a fight, when Elijah sees Klaus strike Hayley, he jumps into the fray and lunges between Klaus and Jackson, pushing each of them backwards with an arm)
(Klaus turns and walks away, leaving Elijah alone with Hayley and Jackson)
(Jackson wraps the bracelet Davina spelled around Hope's wrist as she sleeps in her cradle and stares at her with worry. An exhausted Hayley finds him a moment later and comes to check on him. After a moment, she turns and walks over to Elijah, looking furious)
Hayley: "" [angrily] Nice job today. First Klaus kills Aiden, and then you defend him?
Hayley: "" [lowers her voice to a whisper] Well, if you do, then let us leave.
Elijah: " [whispers back] If you went to the Bayou, I can't protect you from Dahlia. Or Niklaus.
Hayley: "" We have a way to keep Hope from doing magic. Dahlia won't be able to track us down. [Elijah looks stunned by this admission] Jackson knows every inch of the Bayou-- he can protect us. And, I know that Marcel will help us get out of the city. The only thing standing in our way is you.
Elijah: " Must we proceed with this nonsense? From what I understand, you didn't exactly fare well against my brother.
Jackson: " [smiles] There's a difference between you and Klaus-- you can't kill me. [Elijah side-eyes him] You're waiting for the day I die so that you can take your immortal place beside Hayley, and if you kill me? You lose her for good. She'll never forgive you.
(Elijah glares at him until he senses Hayley approaching them with Hope)
Elijah: " [emotionlessly] We have another plan. Rebekah and Davina found a way. If we can replicate Hope's magic, we can lure Dahlia into trap. [Hayley nods in understanding] After which, I'll kill her myself.
(Elijah, who has been glaring at Jackson this entire time, finally turns so he can face Hayley)
(Hayley looks back at Jackson, who doesn't seem to like this plan, but after a moment, Hayley turns back to Elijah and nods again)
Hayley: "" I'll give you her blood. I'm trusting you, Elijah.
Elijah: " And when we know Hope is safe, you can return to where she belongs-- with family.
(Jackson becomes even more unhappy upon hearing this statement, and continues to glare at Elijah)
(Hayley leaves a voice message to Elijah)
Hayley to Elijah: "" Elijah, I’m calling to say goodbye. Hope and I, we cant be part of your family anymore. All Hope’s life her family has tried to destroy her. That can’t be my little girl’s story. Family is supposed to love you. Even if she is free of Dahlia’s first born curse, Hope would still be Klaus’ daughter. She’d inherit a thousand years of enemies. All his anger and rage. I don’t want Hope to be a Mikaelson. All the pain that comes with that name. She doesn’t deserve that. Elijah I... goodbye.
(Elijah is near tears, and looks as though someone has just punched him in the stomach. Rebekah looks sad for everyone involved, and hesitates for a moment before speaking)
(Elijah is waiting outside Hayley's old shack in the Bayou when, after a moment, Hayley, naked and slightly dirty in her human form, comes to join him. He hands her a robe, and she puts it on before giving Elijah a big hug)
(Elijah walks into the room, and Hayley returns to packing)
Hayley: "" Jackson's gathering the pack to tell them to go back to their families... what's left of them.
(She anxiously clears her throat and runs her hand through her hair, keeping her back to Elijah so he doesn't see how overwhelmed she is. Elijah holds out his hand, which has a set of keys on a key ring hanging from his index finger)
(She pauses for a moment, and they stand awkwardly until Hayley continues)
Hayley: "" You know, there was a moment at the bonfire last year when I thought we would be okay. That Hope could be raised by a real family. For the first time, I was happy. I hate Klaus for taking that away from me.
(Elijah, not knowing what to say, pulls out a red velvet jewelry box and hands it to Hayley)
Elijah: " These belong to you. I recovered them after you turned.
(Elijah turns and walks toward the door, but before he leaves, he stops, though he's too self-conscious to face her)
Elijah: " [emotionally] I thought only of you. Every day, I fought for your return, and...
(He pauses, struggling to find the words he wants to say]
Hayley: "I saw things, Rebekah, in his mind. Not just memories, I saw... His impulse his natural instincts and I think maybe that's who he is at his core."
Rebekah: "And that scared you. You're afraid that Hope will see that side of him."
Hayley: "I worry that she'll see that I'm okay with it. What am I teaching her if I allow her to grow up in a place where we trap our enemies in dungeons and retaliate against threats by killing whole neighborhoods I... I don't want her learning to become that."
(Rebekah places her hand on Hayley's before leaving)
