Elijah later tells Klaus and Rebekah this and informs them that this makes Sophie more dangerous than anyone else as she will fight to the death for the life of Monique.
In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, Elijah tries to have Davina unlink Sophie and Hayley as the deal they made is void because of the tactics she used to get them to New Orleans in the first place.

Hurts my family and lives. No one."
In Après Moi, Le Déluge, when Davina starts losing control of her powers, Elijah goes to find Sophie and brings her back to the abattoir to ask her about what's going on.
