The Originals (2013–2018): Season 2, Episode 8 - The Brothers That Care Forgot - full transcript

Rebekah is on the run with baby Hope.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
Previously on "the originals"...

I assume i have
the misfortune

Of speaking to my mother.

I have come to heal
our family.

She'd prefer to place us
all in new bodies.

Take the body
of a mortal

And all be happy again.

It is time you bring

There's no need
for this.

My sons have taken
quite the liking to you.

Proud werewolves
on a witch's leash.

I hope those rings
you're wearing are worth it.

You're gonna like
me, davina claire,

And i'm gonna let
you pretend a while

That you don't

When he wakes,
he'll make his own decision.

You declared
war when you came
after my family.

You don't understand.

Slap them
on a witch,

Can't do magic as
long as they're on.

Kidnapping. Rather
unpleasant way

To begin
a family reunion.

Well, wait until you see
how we end it.

We arrive
into this world as innocents,



It is the job of our parents
to nurture and protect us.

Unfortunately, our own parents
failed miserably

At even the most basic
of parental tasks,

But we are not beholden
to the past

They created for us.

Today, a new future awaits.

Forget your animosity
toward elijah and myself,

And instead join us
against she who truly

Deserves your ire...
our mother.

Do this, and we will
welcome you with open arms.

But if you continue
to oppose us,

A denial of pastries
will be the least
of your concerns.

If you all you wanted
was my allegiance
against mother dearest,

You should have said so,

Save me a night
shackled to the wall.

This was niklaus.

My recommendation
was to remove

Your limbs one
by one until
you comply.

Heh. We've... we've
no desire to torture you,

Provided you vow
to stand beside us

As brothers.


Does that word even
apply to us

After all these
centuries of betrayal,

And is loyalty to you
ever really rewarded?

If so,
tell me niklaus,

Where is
our sister rebekah?

She was blindly loyal
to you for a thousand years,

And now nowhere
to be found.

Where did
our sister go,

And how did she escape
your vile machinations?


You think me vile?

Well, what then,
do you make

Of the one who
cursed us?

She was trying to
make you mortal again,

And you both
refused her.

Only proves
how far you've fallen,

But i expect rebekah
will have a different response

To her proposal.

See, unlike
the two of you,

She always did cling
to her humanity.

off limits, too.

You pursue her,
and you will suffer.

Do not let him
goad you, elijah.

Neither he nor esther
will find rebekah

Unless she wants
to be found,
and she does not.

Esther is quite

She's been searching
for rebekah

Since the day
she returned.

I imagine it's only
a matter of time.

I enjoy a good
bloodletting as
much as anyone,

But our brothers
have power,

As well as knowledge
of esther's plans.

We need them alive.

Can you imagine what
they would do
to rebekah, to hope?

Rebekah has been

By powerful magic.

Focus on the task
at hand.

We need to persuade
our brothers.

I'm through
with persuasion.

Has the earth shifted
on its axis,

You needing
restraint from me?

It's me.
I have the baby,

And we're on the run.

Esther found us.

We're safe for now.

I've lost her
bloody starlings,

But i have no idea
where to go.

Tell her
to head west.

I'll call hayley.

Do not tell hayley.

Esther's too smart for that.

The only advantage
that we have is that

She thinks
the baby died.

Text me with plans.

Go. I'll take care
of kol and finn.

Splendid, and in your
hands, i assume they'll
be dead by nightfall.

I will show restraint.
Hope needs her father.

What she needs, what...

What we need are allies
to help us defeat
our mother.

Finn and kol must be
turned to our side.

Without their help,
there will be nowhere
left for hope to run.

Klaus, you child.

I have waited months

To see my daughter.

I can wait
one more day.


Do whatever it takes
to keep her safe.

I give you my word.

Wolves are
freaking out.

They know it had to
be an insider

Who took down
vincent last night,

Seeing as no one
could have been
anywhere near him.

Anybody suspect
it was you?

No, not yet,
but they're gonna
figure it out,

Which pretty much
means i'm screwed

Unless we come up
with a plan.

Call a meeting,
the whole pack tonight.

If they're so scared,
now's the perfect time

To convince them
they need to ditch esther.

She gave them
moonlight rings.

Well, those rings
make you slaves.

No. They make us

We were exiles

But now we run
the city.

The vampires are
scared of us,

And no one,
including me is just

Gonna walk away
from that because...

Set the damn meeting.

So are you gonna work
on a rousing speech

Or just get day drunk?

Little bit of both.

Jack, it's 10 a.M.

You know, for months,
i wrote down every
single word ansel said,

The entire history
of our people.

If only i'd know he was
klaus' father,

I would have asked him
a hell of a lot more.

You know, i was up
all night looking
through this,

Trying to find
something, anything

That will help me
figure out how to get

The people back

Let me guess...
no such luck.

Nothing viable.

And now ansel's dead

Along with ollie,
so forgive me

If i need a beer
because right now,

I can use all the help
i can get.

I screwed
up, you guys.

I was with kaleb
last night,

And he took
the white oak stake
when i was asleep.

I... i'm sorry.
I never should
have trusted him.

Kol doesn't have
the stake.

Klaus does.
Matter of fact,

Klaus has kol, too.

What? How is that

D, i'm the one
who took him.

I saw an opportunity,
and i wasn't gonna
pass it up,

And trust me...
we are all safer this way.

Not kaleb.
Klaus will kill him.

His name isn't kaleb.
It's kol,

And klaus has had
a thousand years
to kill him,

And he hasn't,
so worry less about him

And more about yourself.

All right. This guy
is not your friend.

He wants to use you
to get his own way.

You don't know him
like i do.

I know him better
than you do.

Now i'm sorry i had
to go behind your back,

And i hate lying to you,
i really do,

But believe me,
this is for
your own good.

I got to take care
of some business, all right?

Stick with josh.

Everything's gonna
be ok.

Elijah's off
his bloody rocker.

We need to get out
of here.

Are you gonna help me
or what?

If you were a little
more clever,

You would recognize
that there's

Opportunity in our
current circumstances.

Opportunity to what,
get a beating?

Gentlemen, i apologize
for keeping you waiting.

Good news is i have
returned with an old friend,

Someone who wants
to say hello.


How's it going, fellas?

Ah, you again.
You ever get bored

Of getting bullied
by my brother?

Oh, i volunteered
for this.

- Did you?
- Yeah. The way i see it,

You have it coming.

First, you messed
with davina.

Now i hear you want to
drag rebekah into all this.

Uh-uh. Not happening.

Well, i'd prefer you
both to join me
against our mother,

But i'll happily settle
for one or the other.

Either way, if you
continue to defy me,

Your lives will be reduced
to an unending sequence

Of agonizing torture.


Which is it to be?

I've got to say i'm
gonna enjoy this.

Out of the whole
twisted family...
sit down...

You are the one
that i like the least.

Yeah? Well, there's
a pretty young lady

Who disagrees
with that opinion.

Then let me make myself
perfectly clear.

You go near davina,
and i'm gonna cut off
parts of you

That you'd rather keep.

Ahh. More threats.

How bloody

Thing is,
klaus needs me,

So that backs
you into a bit of
a corner, doesn't it?

Well, until we get
rid of your mom.

I wonder what
happens then.

Well, klaus might not
need me when mother's gone,

But you might.

Come on, marcel.
You were king
of the city once.

You really think he's
just gonna give it
back to you?

You always got
an angle, don't you?

You see, individually,
we can't do anything,

But together, well,
klaus wouldn't
stand a chance.

Probably not,
but then i'd have
to trust you,

And i don't.

At least with klaus,
i know exactly
what i'm getting.

I thought you had
more fortitude, marcellus.

You disappoint me.

Nobody cares
for your opinion.

Klaus just wants to
know what you're
up to.

Tell me everything,
maybe you'll get
to live.

If not...


For the record,
yes, i knew what

Marcel was up to,
and you can hate me
if you want to...

I don't hate you, josh.

I'm just sick
of worrying about you

And marcel,
and most of all,

I am tired
of klaus always being
in the middle of it.

You know, every time
i try to stand up to him...

It hasn't worked
out so well.

Yeah. Well, failure,
party of two.

You seem to be
doing all right.

Uh, yeah, except that
every werewolf in town
is trying to kill me.

Well, except for
the superhot one that
i'm sort of dating,

But that's got its
own problems, though.

It's kind of
a, uh, romeo
and romeo thing.

And how hot
is this romeo?


Pretty hot!

Definitely worth
the drama.


Invite him over.

Yeah. I want to
meet him.

Come on. Do it.

Do you think our mother
is even the least bit

for your well-being?

She knows i don't
need rescuing.

Hmm? Ehh.

You can toy with me
all you want, niklaus,

But you've had

To kill me.

But i didn't,
did i?

Finn, i understand
your devotion to her.

She must have clung
to you with desperate need

After our sister
freya died,

Making you believe

It was your responsibility
to care for her

Always and forever, hmm,

A burden which you accepted
without question

Because you were
a good son.

Small children lack
the capacity to question

Their parents,

But you're a man
now, finn.

Is that the extent
of your argument?

I'm a man now,
so i should join
your wretched cause?

Is it not better
to join me

Than spend the remainder
of your mortal life

Aligned to a woman
who always manipulated you?

Brother, i offer you
the opportunity
to free yourself.

Side with me,
and i will give you

The life she never
once offered,

A chance to choose
your own path.

The choice is yours,

You want to stop
playing mountain man

And explain why you kept
this from me?

Why don't i jog
your memory?

"the werewolf's power
can be traced back

"to the myth
of the unification

"a ritual that bestowed
certain unique abilities

Onto every member
of the pack."

Do you believe this?

I didn't at first,

And then ansel
swore he saw it
with his own eyes,

And then he dies,
and i find out he's

Resurrected from
a thousand years ago,

Which means he was
alive to see it.

How did i not know
about this?

You didn't grow up
out here.

Every kid grows up
hearing the stories.

Back in the day,
werewolf bloodlines were
all distinct, right?

Some had speed,
some had strength,

Some could sense enemies
from miles away.

Now to evolve, you
would perform a ritual.

A shaman would marry
the alphas of each

And then the special
abilities of each

Would be inherited

By everyone who
in the ritual.

See, after a few
centuries, everybody had

The same abilities,
so alpha marriages
became political.

They became about power,
about territory.

But i have
a unique ability.

Because i'm a hybrid,
i can control when i change,

So if this mystical
marriage thing works,

Then our people get
my power,

And they can ditch
the rings,

Which means esther
no longer has a hold
over them.

Jack, this is exactly
the answer that we've
been looking for.

Let's find a shaman,
we'll say some vows.

Hell, we'll make it
a party.

It ain't just a party.

If the vows
ain't honored,
it doesn't work.

It's got to be
a real marriage
in every way

For the rest
of our lives.

Are you up for that?


Didn't think so.

Hayley, hey.
What's up?

I need a favor.

Are you sure
you're ok?

Yeah. I must just
be coming down
with something.

I'm sorry to drag you
out of bed for this.

Please. You just
discovered an ancient
marriage ritual

With pretty drastic
supernatural and
personal implications.

The least i could do
is get out of bed.

So this is everything
i found in my uncle's
files about

Werewolf ceremonies
and rituals.

Mostly it sounds like
old folklore and fables.

But i'm guessing
you're not here looking
for some kind of proof.

I don't know what
i'm looking for.

Not to pry,
but does jackson
have any answers?

He doesn't even want
to talk about it.

He doesn't even want to
put me in this position.

He's a good, decent guy,

If those even
exist anymore.

And i'm assuming he
knows about elijah.

Elijah and i have
barely spoken

Since i became
a hybrid,

But still he is...

Under your skin.

Ahem. Well, there's
no right answer
to this.

You just have to figure
out what's best for you,

And think long and hard
about your decision

Because you're the one
who's going to have
to live with it.

No pressure.

Hey. What's that
on your back?

Nice music.
Girl's got taste.

Oh, please.
That was my call.

She wanted puccini.

Ha ha ha!
You must be aiden...


Werewolf traitor.

I'm sorry. That was
a dumb joke.

Uh, hey. I was gonna
go order some food.

Do you like thai?

Uh, sure.


That wasn't planned
at all, was it?


Hey. You ok?

The "werewolf traitor"
thing, is there

More trouble
with your pack people?

Guess we'll find out
soon enough.

I actually called
a meeting tonight

For hayley and jackson,
so one way or another,

It's all coming
to a head.

You know, those people
look up to you.

I mean, trust me.
I've seen you in action.

You're a badass.

So just go in there
and tell them
what's what.

I'm not the alpha.

No, but jackson is,

And the pack respects
both of you,

So if you stand
with him,

They will listen.

One thing i learned
from marcel...


Loyalty sends
a powerful message,

And hey, look.
If you get nervous

Or, like, need
a vote of confidence
or whatever,

Just remember
that, uh...

I think you're
pretty amazing.

I'm a little
surprised we don't
hear clapping right now.

Yeah. Totally.

Hey, davina.

You can
come down now.


We can deep doing this
as long as you want,


I can kill you now
and turn you into

A brand-new
baby vampire.

Go on. Do it.

My mother's got plans
for me whether i like
it or not.

If i die, she'll just pop
me into another body,

Not that my family
will care that much

If the death was

What are you
really up to,

Hmm, and what's it
got to do with davina?

You're afraid i'm gonna
break her little heart.

That's downright paternal
of you, marcel.

Easy, marcel, easy.

Let's give kol
a little longer
to decide

Before we lop off
his head, hmm?

Comments like that...

He already thinks
that you don't care.

Is that so, brother?

You only daggered me
a dozen times.

You always cared more
for marcel than you
did for me.

Well, i didn't realize
i'd hurt your feelings.

Well, that's the thing,
isn't it, nik?

You don't know squat
about me.

Ah, but thanks
to marcel,

I know all i need to.

You're desperate to be
a part of this family,
aren't you?

All of your mischief
was just attempts
for attention.

You know, the truth
is, kol, you're right
to feel slighted.

I mean that.
You're right,

But perhaps there's
still time

To make it up to you.

You have reached
the voice mailbox of...

Tell me...

Has there been anyone
out of the ordinary
here today?

Just you.

Oh! I am so sorry.
Let me...

That's quite
all right.

Thank you.


I told you to
clean yourself up...


That if you were clean,
no one would know

What you are
or what you've done.

So, brother,

Ready to embrace
your new life of freedom?

I'm already free,

You're aware our mother
cares nothing for you?

Niklaus, i assure you,
my mother loves me.

She loves all
of her children.

We would not exist
without her sacrifice.

Do you even know
the truth,

That she was barren,

And she grew so
desperate for a family

That she begged one
of the most powerful

Witches in history
for help,

Her sister dahlia.

Of course, dahlia's
price was high.

She agreed to make
our mother fertile,

But in exchange,
she sought

The firstborn
as sacrifice.

Having no
other choice...

Our mother gave away
our beloved freya.

Our sister died
of plague.

Esther gave her away.

Think about that, the pain,

The grief.

If you what you say
is true,

Than death is far too
delicate a fate for her.

She loves us more
than you realize.

And is love the reason
she wanted my child dead?

She was trying
to protect you
from dahlia's curse.

What curse?!

Dahlia demanded
the firstborn
of every generation.

Had your child lived,
she would have
paid the price,

And if anyone had
tried to protect her,

Dahlia would come
and destroy us all.

Look at you.

So big, so perfect.

I can't imagine the joy
of spending every day
with her.


Quite lovely.

Feels so human.

Yes. Some would argue
the most human
of experiences.

I know i have to give
her back to hayley
when the time is right,

But she's made me
realize how much

I want that child
of my own that i know

I can't have.

A lovely dream.

Unfortunately, it's one
that's just beyond our reach,

Considering the curse
of our existence.

Seems esther's attacking
with her usual fervor.

Yes. Mother tortured
me for days with memories

I thought i'd buried
long ago.

Then she made an offer

To make us all
mortal again.

You see, sister,
mother believes that

By placing us
in new bodies

We could then reclaim
some kind of purity,

Even begin families
of our own again.

And i have to confess,

This invitation,
however cruel the delivery,

Had a certain kind
of... Appeal.

You needn't worry.

We're safe.

Looks like this
little one needs
her diaper changed.

Here, my love.

I'm done leaving
messages, elijah.

To say this is urgent
would be a gross understatement.

We need to speak

I was wondering whether
you'd show up.

I'm afraid i'm not
done torturing your
darling kol.

You best run along
while you still can.

I'm not going
anywhere, klaus.

D, today is not the day.

Actually, i think it is.

Looks like it's just
you and me now.

I know you're angry
and scared,

But we are a pack,
no matter what.

You've been checked
out for months.

Why should we
listen to you?

he's the alpha.

You got a problem
with that?

I want to hear
what jackson has to say.

This is a pack meeting.

You're not one
of us anymore.


I am still a wolf,

And i didn't need
any magical rings

To control when or how
i change.

You want the same?
Then sit down, shut up,

And listen.

You forget yourself.

You're not as powerful
as you once were,

Harvest girl.

Doesn't mean i can't
still kick your ass.

Such hubris,

And from one
who bleeds so easily.


You talk such
a big game,

But you couldn't even
kill mikael when you
had the chance.

He was right
about you, you know?

You're weak.



It's impressive.

What exactly did you
do to him?

Channeled dark objects,
turned my blood to poison.

How did you get free?

Oh, it's a long story.
Better question is

If he's not dead,
then what are you gonna
do when he recovers?

We have an hour,
maybe less,

Enough time to chain
him, bleed him,

Dump him in the river.

That's a bit harsh,
isn't it?

Since when do you care
what happens to klaus?

Kol is with us now.

We're gonna be going
up against esther,

Assuming klaus is

Look. Nik... he's
a pain in the ass,

But, well, she's
a problem for us all.

Klaus is the problem.

I don't give a damn
what happens to esther.

Well, i sure do.

Should i even ask?

Cami, you should go.
It's not safe.

No kidding. I woke up
with puncture wounds

All up and down
my spine and no idea

How they got there.

According to my
uncle's files,

They're a part of
this ancient spell,

And i don't know
about you guys,

But when i see
and "spell"

In the same

I think esther.

You all need help,
and you know it.

Now whatever it is
that you think of me,

I was born a crescent.

I'm the last
of the labonair line,

Which makes me
an alpha.

Jackson is your alpha.

Now i don't know how many
of you bought the story
you grew up with,

The unification myth.

Well, it is all true.

Which means if jackson
and i get married,

Anyone with the guts
to turn up to the ceremony

Has as much control
over their wolf form
as i do.

Hayley, what
are you doing?

What needs to be done.

This isn't just
about uniting our pack.

It's about forming
a new community.

This ceremony
will change
everything for us.

It will give us
the strength we need
to defend ourselves.

Then and only then
will we finally
have peace.

The choice is yours.

Keep the rings and be
somebody's bitch,

Or be part of the greatest
pack that ever lived.

I'm in.

Yeah, that's mum's
work all right.

She must have wiped
your memory.

Not the first time
that's been done

By a member
of this family.

What does it mean?

It's a byproduct
of a preparation spell.

Preparation for what?

To make her a vessel.

He means esther
prepared your body

For someone
to jump into.

Likely herself.
I mean, knowing mother.

Where's vincent?

Why me out of everyone
in this city?

Because you're perfect...

Healthy, beautiful,
smart, and alone.

No one would question
any personality changes,

And as i discovered
from our sessions,

Niklaus would never
allow you to be harmed.

Fix this.

Do something
to stop it.

I can't. Only
my mother can.

I will step in front
of a moving truck

Before i let your mother
take over my body.

She wasn't preparing
you for herself, cami.

She was preparing
you for rebekah.

Well, she is all sorted
and ready for an adventure.

Aren't you, luv?

It's difficult to
believe we were all
this innocent once.

We mustn't let the world
ever hurt her.

You're right.
We mustn't.

How long do i have?

Well, now that
esther knows where
she's hiding,

Not long.

The only way to stop it
is to stop her.

Then let's do this.

Marcel's a vampire,

You both are
powerful witches.

Esther's stronger
than anything
i've ever seen.

We go up
against her,

We're gonna
need klaus.

No. No. We can do
this without him.

I'm never gonna say
this again,

But marcel's right.

We do need the bastard.


I know this is
asking a lot,

But please.

What did you do to me?

All you need to
know is that i
beat you again.

And yet you relented,

Which means
you need me.

Did i really lose?

I'm sorry i sprung
that on you.

You know, i always
thought it would be me
popping the question

Instead of being the one
put on the spot.

Are you sure you
want to do this?

Are you?

Look. I know you're
only doing this to
help our people,

But i promise i will be
a good husband to you.

Hayley marshall,
will you marry me?

No ring?

Heh heh.

Quite nice of you
coming to my rescue
like that.

You know, it's a good
thing you didn't
actually steal

The stake from me,

Or i'd have been
the one torturing you.

That mean you
trust me now?

Provided you're not
busy concocting

A new paralytic to use
against me,

I'd like a word
with my brother.

Well, to be honest,
i can't stand being
around you anyway.

For the record,
didn't know a bloody thing

About mother's plan
for cami, i swear.

Well, i think i can
judge for myself

Which of her schemes
she would entrust to you

And which she would not.

I believe this
was finn's task.

And where, pray tell,
is he now?

He's waiting
uncomfortably for me

To return and deliver
his punishment.

Pass the beignets,
would you?

Now it's only a matter
of time before mother

Gets bored of waiting
for you to let us go.

Well, finn at least.

Don't expect she'd care
if i never came home.

A mother cares
for her children,
a monster does not.

Once you accept
she is the latter,

You'll stop expecting
the former.

And despite what you
might think, kol,

I did mourn you
after your death,

And i did attempt
to avenge you.

I would do nothing less
because we are brothers

Always and forever.

Excuse me.

Where have you been?

Nik, it's me.
Something's wrong.

Elijah slaughtered
a dozen people whose
only sin was

Their terrible taste
in food.

I mean, when have you
known him to kill

When he can
otherwise compel?

It's the kind of act
that will draw

Our mother's attention.

Her torture must have
affected him more
deeply than i realized.

Where is he now?

I broke his neck
to keep us safe,

But i have no clue
what to do next.

Do you recall
where we dined

The christmas after
we fled mikael?

Of course.

Go there now.

If you enjoyed
last night's activities,

Then you're in
for a treat.

Klaus, listen to me.
Our mother...

Not another word.

No more fairytales
about witches an curses.

If it's a fairytale,
then why do i see fear
in your eyes?


Bring it in.


No, niklaus.

Oh, don't worry, brother.

I made some air holes,
small ones.

Aah! Aah!

Klaus, have you
seen elijah?

There's something
i need to tell
you both.

You can tell me
on the way.

What? Where are
we going?

To see our daughter.
