In Farewell to Storyville, Rebekah is frighted by the storm which is keeping her awake Klaus who is right next to her promises to keep her safe and gives her an knight piece to be brave. She stood for Klaus to Mikeal and also tried to kill him on Klaus behalf, but failed. Elijah knew about it and kept it a secret.
In Long Way Back From Hell, Klaus states that he was once beaten half to death by his father,because his father was so sure that he had stolen his blade. Weeks later, Rebekah confesses to him that she took their father's blade.Klaus was always against the idea of Rebekah wielding with blades Rebekah carved her name into the cave, despite Klaus' plead. Klaus threaten to tell their father, which really didn't seem to scare Rebekah. When Rebekah finished up carving, she was about to hand Klaus the blade, but he made a rude comment and she slapped the blade into his hand, leaving a cut across his palm.
In Ordinary People, Klaus was sword fighting Elijah, when Rebekah and Henrik ran over to watch them. Klaus won against Elijah, but the victory was short lived when Mikael took Elijah's sword and demanded to fight Klaus. Mikael ended up tripping Klaus with his sword, then harshly pointed it at his neck.
Klaus held Henrik's lifeless body in his hands as he called for Esther. Elijah and Rebekah heard Klaus shouting and ran outside. When Esther saw what happened to Henrik, she pleaded the witch Ayana, to save her son. Ayana informed them that the spirits wouldn't give them a way, and that Henrik was dead.
Rebekah and Klaus woke up together after Mikael had killed them. Rebekah noticed the blood on her nightgown, and became worried. Klaus started to comfort her, but Mikael came in and demanded they both feed to survive. Klaus tried to protect Rebekah from Mikael, but Mikael pushed him out of his way and forced her to drink.
Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah were burning the white oak tree, when Rebekah caught the scent of blood from two men passing by. She followed the men, until she attacked one and fed off his neck.
Klaus stuck around to help Rebekah bury their mother's body. Rebekah promised Klaus she'd never turn her back on him. Elijah over heard their convention, and promised Klaus the same. The three of them promised each other they'd stick together, always and forever.
In The Five, Klaus and Elijah both watched Alexander, as he publicly killed a vampire. Elijah told Klaus that he should take this as a hint, and hide his vampire sins more carefully. Klaus didn't seem to care about what Elijah said, and focused his attention to Rebekah, who walked arm and arm with Alexander.
Alexander was a vampire hunter, that Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah all wanted to know more about. They all shared a meal with Alexander, as they listened to him talk about his brotherhood. Both Elijah and Klaus asked him questions, which Alexander seemed to be fine answering.
When Rebekah awoke from her short slumber, Klaus was in the corner of her room, waiting for her. Rebekah wasn't aware of what happened, nor was she aware that Klaus killed Alex. Klaus then asked Rebekah what him had promised her. Rebekah didn't give him an honest answer, and Klaus grabbed Rebekah by the dress, and screamed his question at her.
Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah were all on a little boat floating in the middle of the Mississippi River, when a few sailors came aboard their ship. All but one of the sailors were killed, as Rebekah and Elijah told the story of their family. Klaus overheard Rebekah, and interrupted the story.
In The End of The Affair, Rebekah met a vampire named Stefan, and started a relationship with him. Rebekah and Stefan both feed off the same girl, made eye contact, then kissed. Klaus pulled Rebekah away from Stefan, insisting that it was time to go. Stefan stood up, facing Klaus, before Rebekah tried to pull him back. Klaus remembered hearing Stefan's name, and made a smug comment about his hair.
Rebekah and Stefan all shared a table and discussed Stefan and Rebekah's relationship. Just as Klaus began to question Stefan, a man walked up to their table, demanding that Stefan tell him where his wife was. Stefan played a few tricks with the man, which made Klaus laugh. Stefan seemed to have met Klaus' standards, and they didn't have any problems after that.
Stefan and Klaus were drinking together when they both looked over and saw Rebekah talking with another man. Klaus warned Stefan that though Rebekah likes him, Rebekah is crazy and will one day leave him.
Rebekah and Stefan were dancing together, while Klaus was sitting alone drinking. Suddenly there were gun shots and glass breaking everywhere. Klaus finished his drink, and stood up. He pushed through a crowd of people, in search of Rebekah. Rebekah was hiding behind the bar with Stefan, when she realized what was happening. She stood up, and Klaus grabbed her arm. Rebekah dropped her necklace, and Stefan went to pick it up when Klaus flashed in front of him. He compelled Stefan to forget about Rebekah and him, then he flashed out.
Rebekah refused to leave without Stefan, and Klaus became frustrated. Klaus told Rebekah to forget about Stefan, and that they needed to leave right now. When Rebekah didn't move, Klaus asked her to pick between him or Stefan. Rebekah picked Stefan over him, and Klaus daggered her.

In Save My Soul,
In Exquisite Corpse,
In City Beneath The Sea, The two had no interaction with one another. But Rebekah refused to un-dagger Klaus, even after finding out that Klaus is innocent, that he did not kill Aiden. Unbeknownst to Rebekah, Dahlia used her magic to un-dagger Klaus, he turns against Rebekah, because well she did not dagger him, or allowed Hayley to tried to take Hope away from Klaus, she did nothing to stop these events from happening, which makes Rebekah just as guilty as Elijah.
In Fire with Fire, Rebekah discovers that Klaus has been un-daggered and panics, as she knows he is planning to cruelly punish his half-siblings for their treachery - so Rebekah calls Camille - believing that since Klaus has an affection towards her that he might listen to her intercession on their behalf. As Rebekah and Elijah struggle to figure out how Klaus had managed to release himself from the gold dagger - Freya explains that it was Dahlia's doing and that it was all part of her plan; that she had killed Aiden, hoping that the blame would fall on Klaus and cause the family to divide so as to win his loyalty and willingness to support her cause. Rebekah refuses to believe this allegiance - stating that Klaus would never align with Dahlia - and would kill anyone who tried to take his daughter away from him - to which Freya coldly points out that it was Hayley who was trying to take their daughter away from him this time - not Dahlia.
Rebekah finds out the hard way that Freya had been right. This revelation comes about when a compelled Marcel neutralizes her with shackles and after Klaus had compelled Gia to kill herself in the sunlight before Elijah - then stabbing him with Papa Tunde's Blade and apparently killing Camille. Horrified by her half-brother's actions - she asks him if he has lost his mind to which Klaus responds that his mind is quite clear and that he decided to purge it of treacherous barnacles. He further recalls what Elijah had done to him, and he had reciprocated it, ten-fold. He then goes on to threaten Rebekah, telling her that if she ever betrays him, he would apply the same equation to her.
Klaus then compels Marcel to kill Rebekah if she tried to escape the compound, (in killing the body of Eva Sinclair). When Dahlia asked Klaus for his blood for the purpose of finding Hope - Rebekah begs him not to help Dahlia - a plea which Klaus ignores.
Rebekah tries in vain to outwit the rules of Marcel's compulsion. If she was to leave - he was compelled to kill her. She then comes up with a theory; that this was all part of Klaus' plan and that if she killed herself, that she would simply return to her original body, (she surmises this on the grounds of their familial bond in that no matter how angry he was with her - he would never want her dead). Marcel is sorely reluctant to test this theory and attempts to convince her not to go through with her planned suicide, however, to Marcel's surprise - Rebekah quickly grabs a blade and jabs it into her neck - taking her life - all in an attempt to prevent Dahlia from claiming Hope.
In Ashes to Ashes, Rebekah is slightly furious with Klaus for his actions, especially when she finds out that he had the Crescent Curse reactivated, condemning Hayley to the body of a beast (a wolf), however, Rebekah is willing to help Klaus, in the hope of defeating their heinous aunt.
When Klaus comes face-to-face with Rebekah, they are still angry with each other but are still civil towards each other, she is slightly cold to him by pointing out he manipulates everyone around him, however, he is unfazed by what she says, and falsely states that if Rebekah had listened to him, he would not have had to force his half-sister to be a pawn in his plans. Ignoring the fact that his plan would not have worked, if he had not been daggered.
He further states the following; "We're no strangers to disagreements on the battlefield, but we also have a very long history of doing whatever it takes to win the war".
After Dahlia is defeated once and for all, Klaus celebrates his victory over his late aunt with Rebekah, she leaves New Orleans in order to find a way to bring back Kol, but not before pointing out Elijah's absents and that Hayley is cursed to be in her wolf form except during a full moon, although Klaus is hurt by what Rebekah says, he quickly brushes it off, as Klaus feels no guilt or remorse for what he did to Elijah and Hayley, do to their roles; Hayley tried to take Hope away from him, and Elijah helped.
It becomes clear that Rebekah's relationship with Klaus has become strained again; do to the fact that Rebekah did nothing to stop Elijah from daggering Klaus, and did nothing to stop Hayley from trying to take Hope away from him. And Klaus forcing her to go back to her body and give up a chance to bring her brother back.
Rebekah: "Don't be an ass."
Klaus: "Father will not like you handling the blade."
Rebekah: "If I want to wield a blade, I shall wield a blade. Father need not know."
Klaus: "He will find out. He always does."
Rebekah: "That is because you always tell him."
Klaus: "I cannot help it, he frightens me."
Rebekah: "He frightens us all. That is why we stick together as one, always and forever. Right, traitor?"
Rebekah: "Here. You finish it and I'll help mother with the meal."
Klaus: "Yes. Go tend to dinner, leave the blades to the men, little sister."
Rebekah: "It's just a little blood. Be a man about it."
Rebekah: "Here we go."
Klaus: "Do you want another dagger in your heart?"
Klaus: "I didn't say anything."
Rebekah: "I hated you when I learned you killed our mother, but I realized how after a thousand years together as a family, you're the only one who never left me."
Klaus: "Aren't we a pair."
Rebekah: "I have something to do. What do you need from me for this spell?"
Klaus: "Just your blood and your blessing. Where are you going?"
Klaus: "Hello brother, I thought you were dead, so pleased you're not."
Rebekah: "You left me."
Klaus: "I only had time to save one of you and you can't be killed. Rest assured, I had a worse day than you. I think it's time to move on, and find some more werewolves."
Rebekah: "So you can create your hybrid family? You don't know anything about family."
Klaus: "Well, I know how easily they can be silenced with a dagger."
Klaus: "Drop them."
Rebekah: "I mourned you! My heart broke thinking I'd never see you again."
Klaus: "Drop it!"
Rebekah: "You want your family, here's your family."
Rebekah: "I'm not eating until you apologize."
Klaus: "For which indiscretion? There have been so many."
Rebekah: "You broke my neck."
Klaus: "You threw away Elena's blood so I can't make any more hybrids."
Rebekah: "Because you took me for granted."
Klaus: "That's what big brothers do, sweetheart."
Klaus: "I mean it’s pathetic really, isn’t it? How she continues to hand her heart to any man who shows her a hint of affection. You think she would have learned by now from the endless cycle of disappointment and deception."
Rebekah: "But I haven’t. Instead I stayed with you and let you leech every moment of happiness from my life."
Rebekah: "Go right ahead. Laugh at the girl who loved too easily. But I would rather have lived my life than yours, Nik. No one will ever sit around a table telling stories about a man who couldn’t love. Do it. Look me in the eye and do it, you coward."
Klaus: "Well then, I think you need a lesson in how to properly dagger a sibling."
Rebekah: "Burn in hell."
Klaus: "Well, I apologize for breaking up this sordid little tryst, but I do have some urgent business, or have you forgotten our paranoid brother Kol is running around with the White Oak Stake and homicide on the brain."
Rebekah: "He tried to kill me last night. I didn't forget."
Klaus: "Yes, well, unfortunately he seems to have absconded with my set of daggers."
Klaus: "Kol's irrational fear of Silas has pushed him off the edge. We need to put him down before he does anymore damage, now I know you have the last dagger and I know you seem to have some White Oak ash, so hand it over'."
Rebekah: "Mhm and leave myself unprotected? You can file that request under no chance in hell. Begone by the time I have showered, lurkers aren't welcome here."
Rebekah: "Got it, thanks."
Klaus: "Actually, it was me."
Klaus: "You sound so surprised, little sister."
Klaus: "Maybe I finally realized, the longer I stand in the way of what you want, the longer you'll continue to hate me. Perhaps I want my sister to finally know happiness."
Rebekah: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me a hundred times."
Klaus: "No more fooling, no more games. I hope you get to live and die as you wish."
Rebekah: "So do I."
Klaus: "An update on our search for the elusive cure."
Rebekah: "Let's just say that things have gotten complicated. In fact, why don't you speak to one of those complications?"
Klaus: "Well, that was poetic."
Klaus: "So it doesn't trap him there when he dies. He wants to reunite with his lost soul-mate. You of all lovesick fools should applaud his devotion."
Rebekah: "He will open the floodgates for every supernatural being that has ever died."
Klaus: "When you're sick and dying and you beg for my blood, I will laugh in your face and compel you to forget me."
Rebekah: "She was dying and I acted with human decency. You can't get more human than that."
Rebekah: "Why is it so hard for you to let me be happy?"
Klaus: "Because your happiness comes at the expense of my sanity. Because I refuse to entertain you another one of your whims. Because you are bored, and you're looking for a reason to matter. Thankfully, I don't have to waste anymore breath fighting you on the subject."
Rebekah: "I remember everything."
Klaus: "It's not gonna happen, sister."
Klaus: "If we turned every man you dropped your knickers for, then human beings would cease to exist and we'd had no bloody food".
Klaus: "Well, he wasn't good enough for you."
Rebekah: "No one was ever good enough for me, Nik. You made sure of that."
Klaus: "Oh, and welcome home, little sister."
Klaus: "I love my sister, but she lacks fortune when it comes to men."
Klaus: "They come and go for her, but I am the constant."
Klaus: "She's my family."
Klaus: "Go near Rebekah again, and you never will be."
Klaus: "Let me spell it out for you, shall I ?"
Rebekah: "It's okay to care."
Rebekah: "It's okay to want something."
Klaus: "If you don't like it, there's the door. See if I care."
Klaus: "Well, it's about time. I was bored waiting, but I so did want to see your face, and it is indeed priceless."
Klaus: "It's 1887, Rebekah. You've been daggered for 52 years."
Klaus: "But you, dear sister, need a lesson in what you can and cannot take from me."
Klaus: "I did what I had to do."
Rebekah: "And our home is worthless without family."
Rebekah: "You know how I love to set things on fire."
Klaus: "Was I supposed to leave them in the front yard to rot?"
Rebekah: "Well, that's a lie. I only killed eight."
Rebekah: "Do you want to hear the part that will please you the most?"
Klaus: "Do tell."
Rebekah: "She's in love with someone in Marcel's inner circle."
Rebekah: "Guess who it is."
Klaus: "Right hand man type, favors silly caps."
Rebekah: "Two points for you."
Rebekah: "Told you, you'd be pleased."
Klaus: "Little sister."
Klaus: "Killing a vampire for example. That would be unforgivable."
Klaus: "He's the brother, actually."
Rebekah: "My queue to leave."
Rebekah: "Well, tonight was an epic failure."
Rebekah: "You what?"
Rebekah: "You failed us."
Klaus: "You always did lack faith."
Rebekah: "I have all the faith in the world that you'll get what you want, Nik."
Rebekah: "You always do."
Rebekah: "No matter what it costs the rest of us."
Rebekah: "You disgust me."
Klaus: "Please sister, tell me you're not still at it with the internet search."
Klaus: "Like looking for a needle in a rather large pile of needles."
Klaus: "What do you mean, she's missing?"
Rebekah: "There's blood and bodies everywhere, someone's ripped this lot to shreds and there's no smart-aleck pregnant girl."
Klaus: "Keep looking. I'm on my way."
Rebekah: "I don't know."
Klaus: "What do you mean, you don't know? And who killed her attackers?"
Rebekah: "I don't know. I had an arrow in my back."
Rebekah: "Lovely. Maybe her cousins will know where she is."
Rebekah: "What is all that dreadful hillbilly ruckus in the background?"
Klaus: "According to the dreadful signage, it's Big Auggie's Bayou Bar."
Klaus: "I'll handle it, but I'll need a distraction."
Rebekah: "I'm on my way."
Rebekah: "Isn't this like old times? Just how drunk are you two?"
Klaus: "Skating on the razor's edge. I'm gonna use the loo. Back in a tick."
Klaus: "That was fast work, Rebekah. Where's Marcel? In there, touching up his lipstick?"
Rebekah: "Credit me with some taste, it's filthy in there. Where'd he go?"
Klaus: "He didn't tell you he was leaving?"
Rebekah: "No. Do you think he realized we were stalling him?"
Klaus: "No. Unless... he was stalling us."
Rebekah: "Nik, finally. What–"
Rebekah: "Well, I suppose I'll go fetch the rubbish bin, because she's staining a two hundred-year-old carpet."
Rebekah: "Poetry about poisoned apples from dead trees. Looks like someone's worried about impending daddyhood."
Klaus: "Nonsense. Elijah's back. In his presence, all problems turn to pixie-dust and float away."
Klaus: "More importantly, who put him in charge?"
Klaus: "I thought you were leaving us."
Rebekah: "We both know this family can barely function without me."
Rebekah: "Daggering, biting, deserting. Does your wickedness ever end?"
Klaus: "My "wickedness" is self-preservation."
Klaus: "And I wouldn't have to go to such lengths were I not presented on all sides with ignorance and treachery."
Klaus: "Don't expect to be leaving town anytime soon."
Klaus: "You're my family."
Klaus: "You can tell me all his secrets, like how did he find us here?"
Klaus: "Huh, any idea about that, little sister?"
Klaus: "You think I don't know about your engineered run-ins all over the Quarter?"
Klaus: "I know you've had private chats with him."
Klaus: "Just tell me what secrets he's confided to you."
Klaus: "Is he plotting against me?"
Rebekah: "My poor brother, so paranoid."
Rebekah: "He's not plotting against you, he simply thinks you're in a quarrel in need of making up."
Klaus: "Perhaps we will."
Klaus: "After all, you know I'm capable of forgiving those who disappoint me."
Klaus: "As soon as they've seen the error of their ways and suffered for them."
Klaus: "You'd do well to remember that."
Rebekah: "You never let me forget."
Klaus: "Hello, sister."
Rebekah: "She looks like her mother.Maybe there is a God after all."
Klaus: "Well, she has a hint of the devil in her eyes.That's all me.You'll need a witch you can trust to cast a cloaking spell."
Rebekah: "I'll get one."
Klaus: "No one can ever find her."
Klaus: "This city would have seen you dead, but I will have it your home, and every soul who wishes you harm will be struck down. Just as sure as my blood runs in your veins, you will return to me. In spite of our differences, Rebekah, there is no one I would trust more with my daughter's life. Be happy sister."
