Rebekah watches them from another level of the garage, then has a flashback to fencing lessons with young Marcellus. "I'm gonna marry you some day," Marcellus says, beaming. "I would never marry someone who couldn't best me in a duel," she says. They fence again. Time passes. Marcellus grows into a fine young man, emphasis on the "fine." He leans in to kiss Rebekah, but is interrupted by an angry Klaus. In the present day, Marcel zips up to Rebekah. "Come to teach me another lesson?" he asks, looking none too happy to see her.
He's hurt because the Mikaelsons left him behind when they fled their father. Rebekah says they thought he was dead. Wouldn't it have been easy enough to make inquiries? Rebekah says she's looking for Elijah, but Marcel says he doesn't want to get in the middle of their family business again.
Flashback to Marcel explaining himself to Klaus. "I like her, and I think it's mutual, but I haven't done anything about it." What a modern way of speaking these 19th century people have. "And you won't," Klaus warns. "Men come and go, but I am the constant." He threatens that he'll never turn Marcel into a vampire if he goes near Rebekah again. Dude, you have an unhealthy attachment to your sister.
"Even after all this time, you're still scared of him," Rebekah says in the present day. "If I find out you know where Elijah is, you needn't fear Klaus. I'll kill you myself." Marcel seems unmoved by her threat, and leaps over the edge of the parking garage and onto the street far below.
Establishing shot of the city at night. (Hey, it's Arnaud's! I've been there. They have Pushy waiters and excellent crème brûlée. No vampires. Overall, I recommend it). Marcel breezes into the pub to whine to Klaus about not telling him Rebekah was in town. He thinks she's the one who killed his guys, but Klaus doesn't think Beks is in the habit of hanging out in biker bars. With Klaus listening in, Marcel gets a phone call about the new wolf in town.
That would be Hayley, who's currently sitting in the park and working up the courage to drink her special herbal tea. Before she can take a sip, three vampires descend upon her. She stuns one of them by throwing tea in his face. Argh! It's so warm! Rebekah appears out of nowhere and kills the other two.
They bring the vampires back to Maison des Originaux, much to Klaus's displeasure. "I had a plan, and your little nighttime stroll put it all in peril!" Rebekah doesn't believe he has a plan. "Nobody's seen you do a damn thing!" So he explains his plans thus far, which have been taking a while to execute because Marcel's hench-vamps ingest vervain and can't be compelled. He did, however, kill those two tourists, knowing that Marcel would turn them in order to replace his fallen hench-vamps. Then, before Gay Best Friend had any chance to take vervain, Klaus compelled him to spy on Marcel for him. Just in case that didn't work, though, he also compelled Camille into dating and then spying on Marcel. Now he's going to take the one surviving vampire from the park, drain him of vervain, and compel him to do his bidding.
