You are the reason your family is alive. You bought them the time they needed and now they've woken up.

No Quarter is the second episode of the fourth season of The Originals and the sixty-eighth episode of the series overall.


NOW THAT WE ARE AWAKE — After being cured and woken, the Mikaelson siblings join Hayley in an effort to rescue Klaus from captivity – even if they must face Marcel in the process. Meanwhile, Klaus' demons materialize in unexpected ways as he suffers from the effects of the Tunde Blade, and Vincent investigates a haunting that will prove to be much more sinister than he could have imagined. Elijah also appears.

  • Antagonists: Marcel Gerard and Sofya.
  • Marcel learns that Hayley has woken up Elijah, Rebekah, Kol and Freya. As well having a cure to his Beast venom, and that they are coming for Klaus.
  • Klaus tells his hallucination of Cami that he doesn't want Hope to end up like him or be the kind of father to her like Mikael was to him.
  • Klaus is rescued by Elijah and the others. Klaus sees Hope for the first time as she's sleeping but tells Hayley to let her sleep.
  • Both Klaus and Marcel have managed to remove Papa Tunde's Blade from their chests. Klaus removed it from inside of his body while Marcel pulls the blade out before it completely enters his body. This makes them the second and third characters, respectively, to accomplish such a feat after Mikael.
  • Klaus tells Marcel that he's won and that the Originals will never set foot in New Orleans again. Marcel lets them go but he tells them that for the rest of their lives they'll know the only reason they're alive is because he showed them mercy.
  • Kol doesn't kill Josh because Davina liked him and even helps Josh out with his new boyfriend.
  • Vincent encounters a dark entity in an abandoned house and realizes he may be responsible for the new threat to the city that could kill everyone in New Orleans. He calls Marcel but gets voicemail instead, but he tells him to call back as soon as possible.
