Davina wants to attend the Dauphine Street Musical Festival, but Marcel wants her to stay home for her own safety. She pouts and stamps her tiny feet and makes his blood boil. Like, almost literally makes his blood boil, to show him she could really hurt him if she wanted. Instead of being furious at her little tantrum he's like, "Aw, kids are so cute!" He agrees to let her roam free for this one night, as long as she sticks close to Cami. This suits Klaus just fine, since he's got Cami compelled to do his bidding.
Since Davina is still refusing to hand over Elijah, Rebekah uses the internet to search all over town for every building that looks like what she remembers of the teen witch's loft. This eventually leads her to St. Anne's, which was also recently the site of a terrible slaughter. A young aspiring priest killed several people and then himself, with no apparent motivation. It turns out this guy was Cami's twin brother, and the reason she came to NOLA in the first place. The important thing is that Rebekah finds Elijah, but he tells her not to rescue him because he's learning about Davina while she experiments on him.
While at the music festival, Davina confesses she has a crush on a boy she knew from school before she was suddenly pulled out of classes. This boy plays the fiddle at the festival and unwittingly becomes a pawn in Klaus's game. Under Klaus's compulsion, Cami arranges a meeting between Davina and the boy. It all seems very sweet until Klaus shows up and nearly kills the boy. In exchange for Davina's grudging allegiance, he heals the young fiddler with his magical hybrid blood. Amazingly, this isn't the most dickish thing Klaus does in the episode, oh no! He makes Cami forget most of what her brother did so that she can focus all her attention on working against Marcel. Klaus cries about it, but whatever. It's still pretty awful.
Meanwhile, one of the witches convinces Hayley to see a backwoods doctor for a prenatal exam. The baby appears to be perfectly healthy, for being an unholy hybrid whateverthehell. But it turns out that the witch and the doctor are conspiring against Hayley for some reason, and sic a bunch of mysterious evil dudes on her. Who or what are they? Nobody knows yet. All they know is that someone – or something – even more mysterious helps Hayley kill them all. Stay tuned for the full weecap.
Marcel walks into a church that's been cordoned off with police tape while Klaus's VO tells us his theory on good and evil. (It's all relative.) Upstairs is the loft where Davina lives and conducts her witchy experiments on a prone Elijah. So far, they seem to consist mostly of treating him like a pincushion. "What some call 'evil,' I believe to be an appropriate response to a harsh and unfair world," he says, as we transition into his office.
He's been talking to Cami, who is in his doorway looking like she shopped at a polygamist compound's garage sale. Seriously, the denim vest and curtain dress is just… what the hell, Cami? "No offense, but I'm not sure I follow why you've invited me here," she says. "Because I enjoy your company," he says, "and I sense you have the capacity to understand someone of my complexity." Instead of laughing in his face, she listens as he basically recaps the first couple of episodes for her. Do the writers just not trust the weekly intro to catch up new viewers? Because the dialogue is simply replete with exposition. "I don't believe in evil as a diagnosis," she says after listening to his spiel. She says he has a fear of abandonment. He's also a narcissist and a psychopath, but she kindly doesn't mention that. He says he wants to hire her to help him write his memoirs, which seems okay to her until he starts talking about vampires and witches. She freaks out, of course, so he compels her to calm down. It's better than Xanax, baby. The memoirs will have to wait; first he wants to talk about Marcel.
Speaking of that handsome devil, he's surveying Davina's handiwork. "Sucker's resilient," he says over Elijah's body. "He's like a cockroach in a suit." He's there to take Elijah back to his siblings, but Davina isn't through with her science-fair bug project. She changes the subject: "Tonight's the Dauphine Street Music Festival. I wanna go." Marcel points out that there are witches all over Dauphine Street that want to get their hands on her. She continues to plead and he continues to refuse, saying it's for her own good. As he turns to leave, she gives him a reminder of her abilities, heating up his blood just by focusing on it. Sweat beads up on his brow. At first he looks scared, then he laughs and gives in. "You going alone is too dangerous, but I'll introduce you to a friend of mine that's gonna be there." Davina bounces with happiness. Yay, tantrums!
Cami is hard at work at Rousseau's when Klaus walks in. "How is it that when you come up to me now," she whispers, "and no one else is around, I suddenly remember you just told me you're a vampire and you're mind-controlling me?" He smiles -- amused and proud -- as she goes on: "And then you leave, and I go back to thinking you're just some hot guy with a cute accent and money to burn?" His eyebrows go up at the "hot guy" mention. "That's how compulsion works, love," he says. She would like to talk about the science behind it, but he would rather talk about Marcel. She tells Klaus that he's bringing "a girl he's mentoring" to the festival tonight. He wants Cami to talk to the troubled girl. Klaus, realizing this is Davina they're talking about, insists Cami do as Marcel asked.
