I was never naive enough to think that I was your light, but there is light in you. All that anger, the cycle of abuse that Mikael began, you can end it. You have to, so you can be the light for your little girl. For Hope.
Cami to Klaus

No More Heartbreaks is the nineteenth episode of the third season of The Originals and the sixty-third episode of the series overall.

Summary

THE RACE TO SAVE CAMI — Following a violent encounter that has left Cami's life hanging in the balance, Klaus is forced to rely on his family and allies to find a cure as he keeps a watchful eye over Cami at the compound. With time running out, Freya turns to her arsenal of spells, while Vincent and Marcel head to Cami's apartment to gather a crucial ingredient.

Finally, Davina confronts Lucien and learns some heartbreaking information that will change her future with Kol forever.

Plot

Camille bite 319.jpeg

Camille wakes up the next morning, sees the bite mark on her arm, and painfully realizes she's going to die. Lucien is, of course, nonchalant about the whole thing and tells Camille her days were numbered the day she caught Klaus' interest. She looks through her belongings for a weapon and finds the Devil's Star, throws it at him, and gets away.

At the compound, she pleads with Klaus not to be angry or fly off the handle. He smells her blood and pulls up her sleeve. Camille tells him she loves him, and faints. Klaus carries her inside, telling her he'll say "I love you" tomorrow.

She wakes up. Hayley sits with her. Klaus person a healing salve made from motherwort and white willow bark; Freya says it's a thousand-year old recipe that will ease the pain and dull the symptoms, but it won't take away the infection. Elijah and Vincent arrive; Klaus bets Lucien's blood can cure her, and since there's blood in Camille's apartment from when she sliced him, Vincent goes to retrieve the blood because Lucien wouldn't be on the lookout for him. Hayley joins in, saying that perhaps Hope's blood might help.

Davina shows up at St. James Infirmary, upset that Kol didn't say goodbye or tell him that he got back. Kol tells her he starts to desiccate if he leaves New Orleans, and it isn't safe to be around him. Davina is sure there's a way to undo the curse. Marcel calls Davina on the phone, telling her what happened with Camille.

Klaus regrets not killing Aurora, but Camille is now not so hung up on revenge. She's angry at what Aurora did to her, but that anger is not her—Camille used to help people like Aurora, and she won't let Aurora take that away from her.

Camille asks Klaus to write her will. He owes her that, since she was his stenographer. To Davina, she'll give everything in her closet, just nothing too revealing. To Josh, her records. To Vincent, her books and all of Kieran's files. To Elijah, an old game of Trivial Pursuit. To Hayley, and eventually Hope, her dark objects. When she gets to Klaus, he can't take it anymore.

Vincent uses magic to lift Lucien's blood off the floor and into a bowl. He nearly doesn't make it because The Ancestors don't want him using magic.

Davina meets Lucien, putting up a barrier spell and knocking out everyone in the bar with her magic. She wants Lucien to tell her how to help Camille. At first, he just tells her trivial facts about himself. He finds her persistence annoying, and walks across the barrier, telling her he can do so because the Ancestors are on his side. He also reveals the Ancestors have a plan to shut her up for good. She continues to ask about helping Camille, just when Vincent arrives with Lucien's blood at the compound, and he says there's no loophole or cure to his bite. He allows her to leave, as she isn't his to kill; the Ancestors have something else in store for her, something Kol knows about.

Klaus and Camille spend the rest of the day in her mind, walking around a version of New Orleans from her memory and being happy. The conversations turn emotional as they start talking about her imminent death.

Davina confronts Kol about the Ancestors. They put the curse on him to kill Davina, but he's been fighting it. Kol tells her there's another way—daggering him. The first thing he did when he came back to life was track the White Oak ash and dagger to make sure Klaus wouldn't stick it in him the second Kol started to annoy Klaus. He always hated it when Klaus daggered him, but now it's the only option.

Camille is still not healed. Freya suggests putting her into another body, but Elijah says Camille would never want that. They shouldn't deny her the dignity of choice, and she should have the dignity to die as she would want.

Klaus conjures up the night they met. He tells her he loves her, and Camille knows she doesn't have tomorrow to live. She is dying, and she finds she can't go without being scared. Klaus reassures her that she didn't fail, either with him or in life. As her body begins to desiccate, Camille tells him to end the cycle of abuse Mikael inflicted on him, to be the light in Hope's life.

Vincent, Freya, and Hayley say their final words to Camille (the way everyone did to Katherine when she died, and the way the Mikaelsons did for Finn before scattering his ashes).

Freya and Vincent are determined to unmake Lucien, as it was her blood and his magic that made him what he is now. An earthquake shakes the city. It stops, just as Kol appears behind Davina and feeds on her. When he is finished, he realizes what he's done and tries to heal her, but to no avail.

Trivia

  • Lucien revealed that his bite has no cure.
  • Kol was briefly neutralized for the sixth known time, he revealed that he stole a White Oak Ash Dagger from Klaus after his resurrection.
  • Freya revealed that her pendant was crafted by Dahlia, and that only the souls of the Mikaelson Family can be put there.
  • Davina is killed upon The Ancestors successful intervention by getting Kol out of desiccation.
    • As of this episode, The Sisters coven is now extinct with Davina's death.
  • Vincent is seen still using Ancestral Magic when he used their powers to collect Lucien's blood in Cami's apartment.
    • However, he is closely monitored by The Ancestors and they reduce his usage of their power.
    • This can also subtly imply that Vincent is not shunned but merely impeached as a Regent.
    • In Where Nothing Stays Buried, Van Nguyen confirms that he has been shunned.
  • Camille and Davina were the second/third deaths of the original five female leads with Sophie being the first to die in Season One, leaving only Rebekah who is no longer a main character but still alive though currently daggered. After this episode this leaves Hayley as the sole remaining original female lead character in the show since Always and Forever. Note: Freya was promoted to the main cast at the start of this season.
  • There are now only 2 female leads, Hayley and Freya, left on show with the deaths of Cami and Davina in this episode. This is similar to the parent show The Vampire Diaries which also has only 2 female leads, Caroline Forbes and Bonnie Bennett, after Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) was placed under a "Sleeping Beauty" spell by Kai Parker.
  • This is the last episode to feature Leah Pipes as part of the main cast.

Behind the Scenes

  • This episode's voice-over is done by Leah Pipes. This is the only episode in which this occurs.
  • "The final Klaus-Cami scenes, set in the French Quarter's Jackson Square, were shot in Madison, Georgia, which is over an hour away from Atlanta. We were shooting in front of a beautiful, historic inn where there was a wedding party celebrating. We were trying desperately to finish the scene before lunch without taking a meal penalty (we ended up taking four). Leah was giving it everything she had and it was an exquisite, heartbreaking performance, with tears streaming down her face take after take. And then as we got in tight, a large gathering of festive folks started to exit a nearby reception hall, and literally every five seconds someone new would shout out, hooting and hollering. At one point, Leah politely stopped and asked to wait it out, knowing that the footage was unusable and, regardless, that it was impossible to stay in the moment and be authentic given the noise.
