The Originals Spoilers: Davina Is “Tired of Being Used as Everybody’s Pawn”
One of our favorite scenes in the last episode of The Originalswas the moment in which Davina (Danielle Campbell) stood up to Monique’s bullying and showed her frenemy just how much magical ability she still possesses. And it sounds like Davina’s independence will continue in the final five episodes of the season. Danielle spoke to TVLineabout Davina’s choices moving forward, and just whose side the teenaged witch is on.
“In the next couple of episodes, you’ll see she’s not allowing it anymore,” Danielle said in response to a question about her frequent role as supernatural pawn. “She’s been lied to and deceived way too many times. She’s tired of being used as everybody’s pawn. Josh sat her down in the last episode and was like, ‘You’re a witch. You need to harness your powers,’ and she listened to him. She’s starting to find her place in the coven and create new allies for herself.” Yes, bring on more Badass Davina!
As for her loyalty, though Danielle said Davina will be hanging with her coven for the foreseeable future, that doesn’t necessarily mean her allegiance lies with the witches: “I wouldn’t say she’s loyal to the coven, but she doesn’t really have a choice right now. She’s still going to do what she believes is right, but she’s also learning how to be a witch, and right now the only way for her to do that is through her coven.” We love that Davina is smart enough to not only try to figure which side she wants to support, but to take her time in doing it. If we’ve learned anything from this show so far, it’s that rash actions will get you killed (unless you’re an Original).
Which side do you think Davina will choose? Do you think she’ll be able to step out on her own as a player rather than a pawn? Sound off in the comments below!
The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
