|“||One thing we can agree on, this delicate, little theatre between us does need to reach a conclusion.||”|

Throughout The Originals Series
In For the Next Millennium, Cami walks into the club, Lucien seems intrigued by Cami, and when he notices Cami looking at him, he stares back at her curiously. He continues to listen to Klaus and Cami through another room.
In You Hung the Moon, Cami thinks that Lucien is the one that is killing humans in the quarter and researches information about him.
In I'll See You in Hell or New Orleans, Kinney bought Lucien to an interview room at the police station and questioned him on the recent murders. Lucien grew bored with the conversation and compelled Kinney to bring in Cami, who had been watching through the one-way window. Vincent and Cami quietly accused him of the murders but Lucien denied it, telling telling her that if she knew him, she'd know that they were alike, having all been caught up in the Mikaelsons' lives. Lucien told Cami and Vincent the story about how Tristan scarred him a thousand years ago. Just as Lucien was going to tell Cami, who was trying to frame him, Klaus entered the room, so Cami left.
In The Axeman's Letter, Cami and Vincent followed Lucien, knowing they were following, Lucien pulled Cami aside, Lucien questions her that she didn't know what type of person he was, but she was about to find out, speeding away but leaving a victim bleeding out with facial wounds carved in his mouth. Cami is later seen being arrested for the crime by Detective Will Kinney.
In Beautiful Mistake, Lucien knocked Kinney out after he had arrested Cami and he took her hostage, telling her that she had a big day ahead of her. Lucien bought her to his penthouse and revealed that he compelled Kinney. He asked that she help him find a specific dark object, a medallion, that he believed was in her possession, hidden within her stash. When Cami remained uncooperative, Lucien had Kinney inflict pain on himself as a motivator for her to help him. Lucien remained persistent on his search, making a deal with Cami that he'd heal Kinney and then she'd have to show him where it was. She pulled out a skull and said it was the only place where it could be. Lucien picked it up, only to feel a wave of great pain, the dark object hurting him. Lucien regained his footing when Cami tried to attack him and demanded she tell him where it really was, ordering Kinney to slit his throat. To save her friend, she handed it over to him.
Lucien compelled Kinney to forget everything never be able to solve the investigation and to dwell in his inability to solve the case. He threatened to compel Cami as well and reminded her that against vampires, humans would always lose.
In Out of the Easy, Lucien told Cami that he had been invited to Thanksgiving at the Mikaelsons. Lucien continued to text Camis friends to make them think she was okay, stalling until the vervain was out of her system. He bought in a vampire of his who was assigned to watch Cami when he was gone. However Cami escaped the Vampire by cutting of his finger and taking his daylight ring. Only to be abducted by Aurora who seemed jealous of Cami, when Lucien mentioned her name.
In No More Heartbreaks, Lucien gloats about Cami's impending death as Cami regains consciousness from Lucien's deadly bite. Cami later escapes from him using the Devil's Star. However, with no cure for her lethal bite, she died hours later at the Abattoir.
In Where Nothing Stays Buried, Cami's death was avenged when Klaus killed Luicen.
