The Originals: Tangled Up in Blue

After discovering interesting news about someone in Marcel's inner circle, Klaus and Rebekah come together to attempt to unravel Marcel's empire from within in spite of Elijah's concerns. They enlist help from Sophie, who is reluctant to get involved for fear of the wrath of Marcel's secret weapon, Davina. Rebekah sneakily invites an oblivious Cami to a huge vampire party thrown by Marcel, managing to anger Marcel in the process. Elsewhere, Hayley learns from the witch Sabine that the supernatural creatures of New Orleans are reacting to the potential existence of a hybrid baby.

Episode Quotes
Rebekah: I cannot believe that you disposed of those vampire without me, you know how I love to set things on fire.
Klaus: Was I supposed to leave them in the front yard to rot? Besides, they were my responsibility. They attacked the helpless pregnant girl who is carrying my child.
Rebekah: Oh, I am so moved by your new found sense of fatherly duty towards the werewolf carrying your hybrid bun in her over.

Klaus: Oh to be young, and in love, in a city where witches and vampires are at war. How very tragic.

Klaus: You hardly know him...and yet you miss him. What is it about my brother that always inspires such instant admiration?
Hayley: He was kind to me.

Camille: I'm beginning to think your sister's a bit of a bitch.
Klaus: It's as though she invented the term.
