In order to get the plan to find the cure moving forward, Klaus deliberately puts Matt’s life in danger to motivate Jeremy, but the young hunter is furious. Jeremy decides to take on some of Klaus’ new vampires, but Damon steps in to stop him and then both of them are surprised to discover that Kol has already decided to do the honors. Kol is firmly against anyone finding the cure and he will do everything in his power to make sure that it remains hidden. Elena steps in and tries to broker a deal with Klaus in order to keep her brother safe, but when a new danger appears, Elena comes up with her own plan for Jeremy.
