  • Quotes (6)

    • Rebekah: You know, I don't know what I want more, to find out we're saved or to find out it's all right to kill you.
      Elena: This isn't my fault. I wanted to get rid of Klaus. At one point, so did you. I didn't know that your mom was planning on killing all of you.
      Rebekah: Do you think I wanna spend what could be the last few hours of my life having idle chitchat with a girl who literally stabbed me in the back? Of course not. But for some reason, everybody seems to want to bend over backwards to save your life. Which is incredibly annoying, but makes you the perfect hostage. So why don't you sit down and shut up before I ruin everything by ripping your head off.

    • Elijah: All my talk of virtue. When it suits my needs, I kill, maim, and torment. Even today, I terrorized an innocent.
      Rebekah: Elena is hardly innocent.
      Elijah: And I used your hatred of her to get what I wanted. Wielded you like I would a sword. My sister.
      Rebekah: You did it to protect us, Elijah, and rightly so. We deserve to live. We are better than they are.
      Elijah: Are we? Mother made us vampires. She didn't make us monsters. We did that to ourselves.

    • Elena: I wish there was something I could do to help.
      Elijah: You know, one thing I've learned in my time on this careful what you wish for.

    • Elijah: (voiceover, as Elena reads his letter) Elena, today I did things I abhor to protect the one thing I value most, my family. If anyone can understand it, it's you. Your compassion is a gift, Elena. Carry it with you, as I will carry my regret. Always and forever, Elijah.

    • Caroline: So what do you want to talk about?
      Klaus: I want to talk about you. Your hopes. Your, your dreams. Everything you want in life.
      Caroline: (laughs) Just to be clear, I'm too smart to be seduced by you.
      Klaus: Well, that's why I like you.
