In The Casket Girls, the Casket Girls Festival is in full swing, with marching bands and people in costumes dancing around the streets. Davina is wearing a masquerade mask and an antique wedding dress to disguise herself as she walks hurriedly down the main street with Cami in tow. They're trying to find a way out of the city unfortunately the witches such as Céleste know that Davina isn't with Marcel as he's doing a search party with Klaus and Elijah to find his ward before the witches do. Klaus threatened Davina's friend and compelled him to drink poison once Davina was found and he offered her a slip.
At St. Anne's Church, Camille and Davina are hiding from the vampire search party Suddenly, the front doors of the church burst open as three witches dressed all in black and led by Céleste storm into the church. They chant the incantation to a spell as they march toward Davina. Their spell is so powerful it telekinetically throws Cami backward, knocking her out. Davina throws her arms out in front of her, and the church's foundation begins to shake. Davina levitates the witches high into the air, and Céleste looks at Davina in fear before Davina violently flicks both of her wrists, snapping the necks of all three of the witches. As soon as Davina drops them to the ground, she rushes over to Cami, who is lying unconscious behind her. Cami remains motionless.
