The Originals Burning Question: Will Celeste Reverse the Werewolf Curse?
One of the smaller developments in last night’s epicly creepy episode of The Originalswas Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) revelation that Celeste was the witch who cursed her werewolf clan 20 years ago. This led to Haley plonking an unsuspecting Celeste over the head with a shovel and presumably dragging her off to ensure that she reverse the curse on her beloved Crescent clan-ers. But is it really that easy? Will Celeste reverse the curse?
Yes, she has no reason not to
From what Marcel said in last night’s ep, the only reason Celeste cursed the Crescent clan of werewolves in the first place was because they had pissed him off. If this is the real reason for the curse, then we see no reason why she wouldn’t agree to reverse it — especially if it will piss Klaus off. The witches even seemed to be working with the werewolves in last week’s episode to lure and subdue Rebekah. Did Celeste already make a deal with them: help us capture an Original, and we’ll reverse the curse on your clan?
No, not without something in exchange
Though Celeste might not have any reason not to reverse the curse. She also doesn’t have any reason to help. She didn’t become an evil and powerful, body-jumping witch by just doing powerful spells out of the goodness of her heart. If Hayley wants her help, we’re guessing Celeste will want something in return. It will probably involve hurting the Mikaelsons, and we’re not sure if Hayley will go along with it. Though the Crescent clan is her family, so are the Mikaelsons. She’s already gone behind Elijah’s back once in an attempt to help the werewolves, and he was not happy about it. Will she do it again?
No, she can’t do it
Though Celeste may have been possessing Brin Devereaux’s body when she cast the curse on the Crescent clan, we’re still not sure if that means she is the one who can reverse it. Does the fact that she was possessing a Devereaux’s body have anything to do with it? Might Monique actually be the only one who can perform the spell needed to free the werewolves from their unnatural cycle? If so, bummer. The teenaged witch doesn’t seem interested in doing anything unless it results in the betterment of the witching order.
