Elijah is hoping he can get Klaus to share his plans with him, but Klaus tells him that he hasn’t been able to trust his brother since Esther got into his head. Klaus believes that Freya might not have given them reasons to distrust her, but that does not make her worthy of Klaus’ secrets or loyalties.
Aiden sneaks into the Mikaelson compound to steal the witch-power-muting chains. Klaus enters the room just after Aiden stuffed them into his jacket, but he doesn’t seem to suspect anything. Aiden tells him he’s after a special stuffed animal for Hope. Klaus appreciates his loyalty, but warns that his life is worth very little if his trust has been misplaced.
Aiden takes the chains straight to Davina to see if she can transfer their magic to a smaller object, something they can use to hide Hope’s powers. Josh is, understandably, concerned for Aiden’s safety if/when Klaus figures out what he was really doing at the compound. Davina is likewise concerned, but Aiden tells them to leave that to him. Elijah goes to Freya to discuss her earlier ultimatum. Elijah wants her to work with him, Klaus, and Rebekah to take down Dahlia. She is resistant, but eventually seems to relent as long as Elijah promises to not let Klaus be their undoing.
Dahlia approaches the threshold of Hayley’s hideout. They have a little chat about how this is most unfortunate for Hayley, but Esther made this bargain with Dahlia and she expects people to live up to their word just as she lives up to hers. (Let’s ignore how Hayley has never actually promised Dahlia anything, so who’s word is being broken?) Dahlia is also so kind as to remind Hayley that little Hope will not even remember her mother, so this will be a virtually painless separation for the infant. Dahlia reminds Hayley that nightfall the following day will arrive sooner than Hayley can imagine, and she should say her goodbyes to Hope.
Cami and Klaus go get a bite to eat at a nearby cafe and discuss more of the Mikaelson family dynamic. Klaus shows no remorse for killing Mikael and Cami clearly wishes he would.
Aiden and Josh have a cute little moment where Aiden tells Josh that he loves him. Josh senses a disturbance in the force, and Aiden spills. He’s going to go tell Jackson about his spying for Klaus, and then he wants Josh to meet him in two hours so they can run off and start new lives together. Josh stops him and kisses him, telling Aiden that he loves him, too.
Marcel visits Davina. He wants to see if she’d be willing to hand over the anti-Klaus dagger for them to use if things go south against Dahlia. Davina tells him that Kol gave it to her for her protection, and she’ll be the one to decide if it gets used.
Aiden hands the necklace over to Jackson, and tells him about his double agent status. Jackson hits him, but then makes sure that Aiden knows he will always be a part of the pack. He tells him that when it came down to it, he stood by his pack.
Hayley is fed up with listening to Klaus. She is ready to run, and when she tells that to Klaus and Elijah, Klaus insists that he knows what Freya was planning and knows how to defeat Dahlia.
We then see Aiden picking up flowers, happy as can be. He hears Dahlia’s whistling and she draws him under her control and into an abandoned alley. She scratches up his face and rips out his heart. Aiden is dead and she is hoping that it will jumpstart the war.
Josh and Davina find Aiden dead in the alley. Josh frantically tries to feed Aiden his blood to heal him, but it’s no use. Aiden’s gone.
We then hear Jackson yelling as he enters the safehouse carrying Aiden’s body. He accuses him of killing Aiden, which we know he didn’t do, but Klaus embraces the accusation. They begin to fight, and Elijah stops it. He promises to keep the wolves there and keep Hope and Hayley safe until Klaus can put his plan into action. Davina arrives at Marcel’s loft to deliver the anti-Klaus dagger and tell him she wants him to put Klaus down.
Jackson loops the magic necklace around Hope’s wrist, and Hayley begs Elijah for help. She tells him that they cannot run from Dahlia and hide from Klaus at the same time.
Cami confronts Klaus about killing Aiden. He admits to her that he didn’t kill him, but it works better for him if they all believe him guilty. He knows no one will believe her, so he doesn’t worry about it.
Klaus enters his room to find Elijah there. Klaus cannot believe that his brother allowed Hayley and Jackson to run. Elijah and Klaus begin to fight and the fight ends when Elijah drives the dagger into Klaus’ heart. As Klaus begins to dessicate, Rebekah and Freya step into view.
