He finds Hayley as she is torturing and beheading another vampire, several more bodies are lying on the ground. Hayley reveals that she has a list of all the vampires who were responsible for Jackson's death and it is clear that she wants to kill all of them.

Meanwhile, Cami and Hayley attempt to rescue Klaus. Hayley is about to tear Aurora's heart out as Klaus warns her that she has already drunk the same serum Lucien used to become more powerful, thus leaving Hayley no choice but to spare her life.

Nothing but an ordinary vampire once more, it is easy for Klaus to kill him by ripping his heart out.

|Give 'Em Hell Kid||1 - Marcel Gerard (as a vampire)||Vincent Griffith and Marcel Gerard|
|By chanelling Alexis's prophecy, Freya and Elijah realise that the threat they face is in fact Marcel, who blames the Mikaelsons for Davina's death and has taken the serum extracted from Aurora's body and plans to use it on himself. Klaus is trying to make amends with Marcel but Elijah turns up and makes Marcel reveal that he has the serum with him. Laying out how unfairly the Mikaelsons have treated him and everyone around them, Marcel threatens to take the serum. Knowing the prophecy foretells that Marcel will be their downfall, Elijah rips out his heart before he can drink the serum and Marcel's body falls into the river.

Meanwhile, Detective Kinney brings Vincent to a crime scene in St. Anne's fight gym which is littered with the corpses of dead Strix vampires. Vincent presumes that Marcel is behind these murders. One of the Strix is not quite dead yet and attacks Kinney so Vincent drives a stake through his heart.
During the confrontation at the Mikaelson compound, Marcel bites both Kol and Elijah, condemning them to die from his lethal hybrid-like poison. Freya manages to save her and her brothers by putting them, along with Rebekah, into a deep sleep and linking their lives to Klaus', leaving Hayley enough time to find a way to save all of them.
