|Episode Guide Transcript|
A TRIP TO THE ASTRAL PLANE MAY MEND FENCES- After a sneak attack from Dahlia, the siblings find themselves in a hellish dreamscape that responds to their emotional states. Klaus' anger and paranoia manifest themselves in vicious ways, much like Freya had previously prophesied. Elijah's own fears are personified by nightmarish versions of Alana, while Angelica faces her insecurities about her relationship and Finn confronts his own demons in the form of Esther. Angelique is alternately harassed and comforted by apparitions of Dahlia, and Cami. In the real world, Joanna has a harrowing confrontation with Christabella.
