Rebekah and Kol leave town. Vincent tells Marcel about his ex-wife Eva Sinclair and the secrets about why what is going on might be his fault. He tells Marcel about the magic they used and how Eva became possessed and started taking children for sacrifices. Detective Will Kinney tells Vincent that there are three other children missing as well. Marcel and Vincent find the children before it’s too late. Vincent does a spell that cleanses the children except there is a fifth child who wasn’t with them. Marcel discovers the mysterious person using the magic is going after Hope Mikaelson.
Vincent gets Marcel to agree to let them come back to New Orleans so he can do a cleansing spell on Hope. Marcel makes him promise that no one will find out the Mikaelsons are back in New Orleans and to make sure Hope doesn’t get hurt. Vincent sends a note to Hayley telling them he can help Hope.
