It’s been weeks and we’re still not over the death of teenaged witch Davina (Danielle Campbell) on The Originals. Now that one of the other sacrificed witches has risen from the dead, what are the odds for our girl Dee? Will Davina return?
The Monique factor
In the last episode, Davina’s bestie, Monique Devereaux, busted out of her tomb and into the lives of the French Quarter residents. She was one of the four witches to be sacrificed in the Harvest and, presumably, was resurrected when Papa Tunde — one of the three witches Celeste resurrected once she had stolen the Harvest’s power for herself — died. Presumably, this means Davina has a shot at resurrection if and when one of the other alive-again witches bites the dust. Question is: When she returns, who will she be? She not only will have lost some of the awesome power she wielded before she died, but may be brainwashed into helped Team Celeste like Monique seemingly was. Monique is so devoted to Celeste’s cause that she killed her own aunt. Now, we didn’t know her before the Harvest, but that sounds like some witchcraft manipulation to us.
What Julie Plec has to say
So, what does the top brass have to say about a potential Davina resurrection? Well, executive producer/television god Julie Plec talked to TVLine about how the Harvest worked, saying: “The mythology of the Harvest is that these four witches pass into limbo, waiting for their magic to spread back to the Earth. After their magic is spread back to the Earth, then they would be resurrected. What we saw at the end of the episode is that their magic was, basically, hijacked. If you follow the logic of the mythology to its magical conclusion, then it’s possible that we haven’t seen the last of these girls. But we’ve got to get rid of these nasty hijackers first.” Sounds promising to us!
Danielle’s appearance at PaleyFest
Have you heard the news that The Originals are sharing a PaleyFest panel with The Vampire Diaries? Well, they are, and guess who will be amongst the cast members announced to attend? Danielle! Sure, we suppose it would be possible for her to attend as a previous cast member, but that would be kind of weird considering its a pretty crowded panel as is. We think her presence at PaleyFest is a pretty good sign our favorite witch will be back sooner rather than later!
Do you think Davina will return? Why or why not? Share your theories in the comments below!
The Originals returns on Tuesday, February 25 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
