  • Antagonists: The Hollow and her Followers.
  • Freya and Keelin steal some of Marcel's venom.
  • Freya gives Keelin a moonlight ring to strengthen her in their quest to weaken or kill Marcel. At first the ring was spelled so Keelin couldn't take it off. Freya altered it later so Keelin can remove it.
  • Vincent realizes that the Hollow wanted them to find its followers and the abducted children.
  • Hope tells her father not to look at the blue light, which he tries to do but seems to have failed to do. Hope has a dream where she finds him and sees his eyes glow blue just before she wakes up.
  • Hayley and Marcel learned from Lara that witches aren't the only ones that the Hollow has allied itself with but werewolves as well, namely, the Crescent Wolf Pack. She tells Marcel that even the powerful "Beast" will bow before it.
  • Vincent transfers the sacrificial anchorage spell to Elijah and had Hayley stake him, temporarily killing him to save Hope and the other kids.

Keelin: "I guess I feel asleep working. You get any?"
Freya: "I just woke up from a five year nap."
Keelin: "You going somewhere?"
Freya: "New Orleans. Hope is still sick. Klaus asked me to see what I can do."
Keelin: "Great, as long as you're stepping into a war zone, see if you can get your hands on Marcel's venom."
Freya: "Klaus did say that Marcel would be occupied. We can enter his home, steal whatever we need and leave before anyone notices."
Keelin: "Okay, you want me to help you rob the most deadly vampire on the planet? I will past."
Freya: "You're worried about a fight, allow me to even the odds. Stone is kyanite. It's been spelled to grant you total of your werewolf nature, even during the full moon."

Elijah: "Let me see what I can do."

Vincent: "Now this thing is dark, it's angry, it's very powerful."
Elijah: "Is a force my family and I are here to erase. I would violate everything sacred under the sun in the name of rescuing my niece. And right now, according to you, you are facing two evils. Wouldn't it be nice to have one of those by your side?"
