Vincent: "That is so, Marcel. I just saw what you did back there, with all the bodies and the bloodshed man, left for anybody to find. Reminded me of somebody else's handiwork. And I was hoping that you were different, man, but I'm starting now to think that you are just as dangerous as Klaus Mikaelson."
Marcel: "I did what was necessary."
Vincent: "No, you didn't Marcel. That's what the problem is, man. You don't do what's necessary. You do what you want to do, consequences be damned."
