The official synopsis for the next episode reads:

When Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) receive a cryptic invitation to dinner from their mother Esther, who continues to inhabit the body of Harvest girl Cassie (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss), they find themselves preparing for the worst. With the help of a new witch named Lenore (guest star Sonja Sohn), Klaus, Elijah and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) attempt to stay one step ahead of Esther, but things quickly take an unexpected turn. While Elijah finds himself reluctantly teaming up with Gia (guest star Nishi Munshi), a newly-turned vampire, Hayley is faced with an enticing proposition about her new status as a Hybrid after a startling encounter with Esther. Finally, Esther reveals a shocking secret about Klaus' childhood and unveils her ultimate plan for her children.

"It's definitely a family reunion full of surprises," showrunner Julie Plec teased in a promo video.

"This episode is really in a way the family reunion that we've been promising. It's Cassie literally inviting her children to join her for dinner."

Esther's backstory, including the fact that she lost two of her seven children, will be unveiled in the episode. In addition, viewers will get to see actress Alice Evans reprise her famous guest-star role, reported Latin Post.

"This will be the big episode where Esther is going to make her modus operandi clear to her sons," executive producer Michael Narducci said.
