The Originals: 5 Character Dynamics We’d Like to See
The Originalsis a show still in its infancy, but we’re eager to see new character dynamics explored as it heads into the second half of its inaugural season. Don’t get us wrong, we love the scenes with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) — but we’re gunning for some more unexpected interactions between the characters. Here are the five character dynamics we’d most like to see happen on The Originals!
Davina and Sophie
We’ve technically seen Davina (Danielle Campbell) and Sophie (Daniella Pineda) in the same scene together when we learned more about the witch community and the Harvest in Season 1, Episode 5 (“Sinners and Saints”), but we’ve yet to see them interact in present-day. Something tells us that with all of the Harvest talk being thrown around the upcoming episodes’ synopses, our wish will soon be granted — and we can’t wait. Davina was BFFs with Sophie’s niece, and we’re guessing these two have a rich backstory. Plus, anything that can humanize Sophie as a character right about now would be much appreciated.
Um, we pretty much want to see Elijah (Daniel Gillies) interact with all of the characters on this show, but we’re somehow most intrigued by this dynamic. Cami (Leah Pipes) hasn’t had as much interaction diversity, but we think that’s about to change now that she’s teaming up with Davina. We think Cami and Elijah would be interesting to see as a duo because they both operate with a strong sense of principle. We’re not sure if these two will ever be on the same side, but we imagine they would respect one another regardless.
Father Kieran and Davina
Father Kieran and Davina should totally be BFFs at this point considering Davina has spent most of the season so far holed up in the church’s attic. Have these two had some off-screen interaction? Because we would love that! Besides, Davina could always do with an upstanding character looking out for her and, though we’re not really sure why Father Kieran has so much power, he seems to.
Hayley and Marcel
This character interaction was teased when Marcel went to the Mikaelson’s plantation to meet the mysterious woman they had hiding away, but we haven’t actually seen these two have a real conversation. Now that they’re under the same roof, we’d like to see that happen. Especially given that Marcel totally has a thing for Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) current BFF, Rebekah (Claire Holt). Perhaps he could go to Hayley in search of some advice on how to approach his former flame? From the looks of this sneak peek, he can use all of the help he can get.
Josh and Cami
There is a serious dearth of nice people on this show, which is why they totally need to stick together. With Davina and Cami now joined forces, we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time before Cami meets Davina’s new BFF, Josh, and Team Nice People is formed. We think Josh and Cami will get along as well and as quickly as Josh and Davina have, which is good because Team Nice People needs all of the edge they can get if they hope to take on the considerably larger Team Mean People.
