I Will Not Bow
THE AFTERLIFE WILL SHOW ME A GOOD TIME- Aurora and Lucien Castle reconnect in the face of the threat Tristan poses. Kingston approaches Mikael with an offer to join the senator's inner circle. Elijah's trial begins, with Alana and Callie on edge for more than one reason. Elijah begins training the newest members of The Strix. Lucien gate-crashes an engagement party as a diversion for Aurora, who quickly finds herself alone with her brother. Freya and Davina bond over their shared darkness and work together to free Kol, Finn, and Banks, whom Tristan has captured. Elsewhere, tensions with Christabella come to a head as she makes a dangerous gambit.
