At Hayley’s motion, Elijah unbuttons and unzips her dress and then leaves.
Elijah comes home and puts Davina’s sketches together as Hayley watches with anxiety. They soon realize that the sketches form a larger image, which turns out to be Celeste Dubois, Elijah’s former love.

When the harvest ritual is over, Hayley asks Elijah if he is ready to forgive her but he says it's not that easy. She admits she was wrong for what she did. Confused, she questions why he can't forgive her. Elijah states that she should know since he showed her his mind when they were in the bayou. He asks if she had any idea what Celeste means not meant, to him and asserts that love is rare and that he had only found it twice. Hayley responds, “I know what a promise means to you, Elijah', but you made it 200 years ago. I live in the now. If I feel something, I act. If I want something, I take it. I won't choose the dead over the living, so why are you? I'm sorry, Elijah.” As Hayley is about to leave, Elijah grabs her arm and pulls Hayley very close to him and they almost kiss.

Hayley notes that it took a supernatural threat for him to come close to her, which showed that he was keeping his distance from her prior to now.

In the compound, Elijah is worried and tells Hayley that Rebekah hasn’t been picking up her phone. He believes it had something to do with Rebekah conspiring against Klaus. This leads him to confront Thierry who reluctantly confesses she was desiccated by the docks. Wanting to help, Hayley asserts that she’s coming too and promises she won’t leave Elijah’s sight.
At the docks, they find Rebekah’s desiccated body within a circle. Because of the convoluted spell, Sophie tells them on the phone that they need a potent ingredient or mystical binding agent to break the spell. Elijah realizes they can use the blood of Hayley’s child as an agent because it’s a quarter witch. Hayley agrees and allows Elijah to bite her wrist to draw the blood onto the magic boundary line.

Marcel informs them that this is a riddle can needs to be solved in order for the tattoo to disappear. Marcel and Elijah then recognizes one of the names on the list, Annie La Fleur and leaves to the village she used to live. In a phone conversation, Hayley tells Elijah to ask Marcel about Brynne Deveraux, a name on the list who was part of Sophie's bloodline that put the curse on her family. Hayley then apologizes for puting Elijah in his predicament after he chose to save her life. Elijah tells her there was no other choice and hangs up.
At the Abbatoir, Elijah questions Marcel about Brynne who recalls that she cursed the werewolves for him. Marcel then confronts Elijah about why the Crescent werewolves were at the plantation with Hayley. This upsets Elijah who warns Marcel not to touch Hayley or he will end his life. Elijah then discovers that every name on his body signifies a witch who killed herself with the exception of Clara Summerlin. The tattoos from Elijah's body finally disappear. Elijah returns back at the compound were Hayley is and reveals that she was right about Brynne. Hayley informs Elijah and Marcel that Clara was a nurse and shows them an old picture of her. Marcel then realizes that Rebekah and Klaus are at the sanatorium and confesses it's because of what Rebekah and him did to the witches. Elijah leaves to rescue his siblings while Hayley knocks Celeste out with a shovel.
In Le Grand Guignol, Hayley and Eve threatens Celeste, who they had tied up, with a shotgun. Hayley demands Celeste to undo the curse on her werewolf clan. Unexpectantly, Celeste agrees without hesitation and claims she likes Hayley. Celeste then makes a mystical green potion and gives it to Hayley, saying it will break the curse during the next fullmoon. At that moment, Elijah appears and tells Hayley not to trust Celeste. Hayley tells Elijah to help her or to move aside. Elijah takes no time to snatch the antidote from her and vamp-speeds away, taking Celeste with him.
Celeste points out to Elijah that if he prevents H
ayley from breaking the curse, Hayley will hate him for it, but if he allows it, there will be a good chance, she will leave him to be with her family. Celeste happily notes that either choice will ruin his relationship with Hayley. Knowing this, Elijah returns to where Hayley is and decides to give her the cure. Hayley hugs him for helping her and Elijah returns his affection by giving her a gentle kiss on her forehead. Elijah seems to silently acknowledge that Hayley would most likely choose her wolfpack over him and tells her, "I wonder if they have any idea how lucky they are to have you."
The Originals Season One
(Three witches come out, standing in formation around Hayley, the pregnant werewolf girl. Elijah watches her with interest, while Hayley seems a bit confused and really irritated.)
Elijah: " Relax. If you open your mind to me, I can show you.
(Hayley allows Elijah to touch her head. They close their eyes.)
Elijah: " In the beginning, our family was human... A thousand years ago, now.
(Elijah shows her a part of his past. Open their eyes and Elijah speaking after returning to their visions)
Elijah: " That is, however, until one night, our youngest brother was killed by our village's greatest threat.
(Returning to the visions and then Elijah talk again)
Elijah: " Men that could transform themselves into wolves during the full moon. Our family was devastated, none more than Niklaus. Desperate to protect the rest of us, our father forced our mother to call upon her black magic in order to make us stronger.
(Returning to the visions and then Elijah talk again)
Elijah: " Thus, the first vampires were born. But with this speed, this strength, this immortality, came a terrible hunger. No one felt this hunger more than Niklaus.
(Returning to the visions and then they open their eyes)
Hayley: " I'm Hayley, by the way. You should probably know my name if you're gonna tell me your whole life story. I mean, I know yours. Your family is legendary. Your brother is a notorious psycho... who I slept with. Classic me.
Elijah: " I cannot excuse his behavior, but you must understand, when our father hunted him – hunted us – for centuries, every time we found a moment of happiness, we were forced to flee. Even here, in New Orleans, where we were happiest of all. Not long after Niklaus broke the spell which prevented him from becoming a hybrid, he defeated our father. I thought this would make him happy. He was angrier than ever. I wonder if perhaps this baby might be a way for my brother to find happiness. A way to save him from himself.
(Sophie enters the vault.)
(Hayley and Elijah are in a huge, white house. Hayley pulls a sheet off of a crib, coughing because of the dust.)
Elijah: " Yes, it should serve our purposes. It's a sanctuary from our business in the Quarter. Right now, you are the most important person in this family. You need a good home. So I'm curious... in all this time, has anyone asked you how you feel?
Hayley: " About having a miracle baby with a psychotic one-night-stand?
Hayley: " I – I was abandoned when I was born and my adoptive parents kicked me out the second that I turned into a wolf. So... I don't really know how I feel about being a mother because I... I never really had a good one.
Elijah: " I will always protect you. You have my word on that.
(stomps through the kitchen and into the living room to clean up the mess)
Elijah: "You know, I do hope my siblings were hospitable to you, in my absence.
Hayley: " In your absence, as you like to call it, which is a way-too-polite way of saying that your brother put a dagger in your heart...(looks up to see Elijah bringing a bowl, a spoon, and a bag of cereal to the counter) I have been attacked by French Quarter vampires, I've had to live in a house with a secret dungeon full of coffins, and I was nearly murdered by witches who are convinced my baby is Lucifer.
(Elijah smiles sympathetically as he pulls orange juice and milk out of the fridge, pours Hayley a bowl of cereal, and then fills it with milk)
Hayley: " (notices the milk) Oh...milk. They've been fine. Your siblings are weirdly protective, I know I have you to thank for that.
Elijah: " I'm just happy to see that you're in one piece. [smiles] So, back to the murderous witches. [hands her the bowl of cereal] I have some concerns.
Hayley: " They're evil. And, my life is still magically linked to Sophie Deveraux, which is not comforting.
Elijah: " Yes, I think it's time we took care of that little problem.
Rebekah: " I am all for it. As soon as they're unlinked, we get to leave this crap town. [drags the dead girl's body across the kitchen floor] Who do we have to kill?
(Hayley runs as fast as she can through the woods, Tyler's knife still in hand, and stops to hide behind a tree. As she catches her breath, she hears someone approaching. She braces herself, readies her knife, and turns to attack, but it's just Elijah. He holds her hand steady to protect himself.)
Elijah: " Forgive me! I thought you were in danger, it appears I was mistaken. [smiles]
(Hayley sighs in relief and dives into Elijah's arms. The two hug for a long moment before Hayley eventually pulls away)
Hayley: " You will not believe the crap day I'm having.
Elijah: " [sighs] Perhaps I was too willing to condemn him. In the thousand years that we have been together, my brother has committed numerous unspeakable acts. But, then again, so has Rebekah. So have I.
Hayley: " So did I, the last time I was in Cabo. [Elijah stares at her, confused] We've all done bad things. It's just, most people die before the list gets embarrassing. But, don't for a second compare yourself to Klaus.
(The two stare at each other intensely. After a long moment, they both look away awkwardly)
Hayley: " It's like a freaking hot box in here, I'm gonna get some air.
(Hayley leaves to walk out onto the porch. When she gets outside, she finds a Bible laying on the corner of the porch. She picks it up and begins to flip through it. After a few moments, Elijah joins her outside)
(Hayley is outside the hut by a lake, Elijah is groaning with pain. Hayley goes in and sits down on the bed and lays a hand on his foreheadand in the Elijah's memory A woman, Celeste, is sitting in a bathtub, Elijah enters the room. And return to the present time)
Elijah: " She died because of me. Because I cared too deeply for her. I had allowed my brother to slip through my grasp. I loosened the reigns while Celeste consumed my every moment. I had abandoned him in the name of my own happiness. Celeste payed the price.
Hayley: " I don't get it. (She shakes her head.) Why are we here? Why are you trying to put together your family when it's so clear that one part of it is broken?
Elijah: " To me, the very definition of the word "broken" suggests that something can be fixed. I have a whole eternity to accomplish one single task: My brother's salvation. If I surrender this, then tell me what value would I be to my family, to myself, to ... to your child?
(Hayley lays her hand upon Elijah's.)
Elijah: " (shaking his head) Please, Hayley. You've seen what happens.
(Elijah holds her hand. After a moment he leaves the car.)
(Rebekah comes along, kicking down two other vampires who were hiding around the corner)
Elijah: " Come, we mustn't linger. We'll get you some place safe.
Hayley: " No, you don't have to worry about me. I'm fine. I've been deemed under protection by the almighty Klaus. It's the werewolves who need help. He ordered a wolf hunt as some jacked-up peace offering to Marcel's crew. You have to help them.
Rebekah: " Out in the bayou? Do we look like a bloody vampire-rescue-squad? I think you should be grateful we came to save you!
Hayley: " Listen. Rebekah. All my life, I've wanted to know who my real family was, and just as I find out that they're out there in the bayou, Klaus orders them killed. You wanna help me? Help my people. Please.
Elijah: " You don't have to eavesdrop. I keep nothing from you.
(they continue walking.)
Hayley: " Yeah. Well, I don't want to keep anything from you either, and if you're going out to see Sophie, then there's something that you should know. She called me and asked me for a favor. She promised me that she would help break the curse that Marcel put on my people in exchange for some information. And I didn't think anything of it, but then Davina started doing those pictures of Celeste...
(Elijah stops and Hayley is worried about his reaction)
Hayley: " Sophie wanted to find Celeste's remains, so I went through your journals, and I found out where you buried her, and then I told her. I know it was stupid and it was snoopy, And I.. I should have just asked you... Please say something. Please.
(Her eyes fill with tears and Elijah looks at her puzzled)
Elijah: " She wanted to be left in peace. When a witch's remains are consecrated, that power fuels the rest of their community. Celeste did not want her remains to be found. She made me promise to bury her where she would not be found. You not only violated my privacy, You have broken my promise to her.
Elijah: " No. Do you have any idea how rare love is? In a thousand years, I have found it but twice, and when I have, I have honored it.
Hayley: " I know what a promise means to you, Elijah, but you made it 200 years ago. I live in the now. If I feel something, I act. If I want something, I take it. I won't choose the dead over the living, so why are you?
Hayley: " Yeah. Morbid, I know. I was just thinking, we never figured out why she drew those pictures of Celeste. Anyway, I'm just killing time now that I'm on vampire lockdown.
Elijah: " Whoever did this, we will deal with them. It won't be long.
Hayley: " I'm not worried. Just think it's kind of funny that it took some big, supernatural threat for you to even come into the same room as me.
Elijah: " I do apologize if you feel neglected. I have been occupied.My siblings are in some quarrel. Niklaus remains agitated. You'll recall that even our slightest interactions seem to Infuriate him.
Hayley: " So Klaus is a dick, and you want to be a good big brother. So we can't hang out. That sum it up? I get it, Elijah. It just seems like a really crappy deal.
(Hayley gives Elijah her wrist. He bites it drawing blood. They walk towards the magic circle together. Elijah holds out Hayley's wrist and lets the blood fall on the magic boundary line. It starts to fizzle and deteriorate. Elijah is able to get through. He picks up Rebekah and takes her out of the circle. He reaches for Hayley's hand, and then he speed vamps out of there with Rebekah and Hayley.)
Elijah: " Celeste forced me to make a choice between yourself and my siblings, and now she means to mock that choice, taunting me with a childish game. The longer the game, the more they suffer. To find Klaus and Rebekah, we need to solve this riddle. The solution lies somewhere in these names.
Marcel: " the name next to Sabine…Annie La Fleur, she’s the witch that was shunned from her coven just over a year ago. Never knew why but I can find out.
(Elijah is walking down a busy street on his cell phone with Hayley explaining what happened to Annie La Fleur.)
Hayley: " Ask Marcel if he knows anything about a name on that list Brynne Deveraux. Sophie said that it was her family's bloodline that put the curse on the crescent wolves, but Celeste said that she was the only one that could break it. If Brynne Deveraux was actually Celeste when she cast the spell, then maybe Celeste can still break it.
