The end of the mid-season finale of The Originals (Season 1, Episode 9: “Reigning Pain in New Orleans), Davina Claire (Danielle Campbell) brought her witchy powers to Team Human (aka Cami). But do those powers include the ability to off an Original? We think the young witch has everything she needs to take our favorite anti-heroes out.
The grimoire. Elijah probably should have bit more cautious with those pages from his mother’s spell book, aka the grimoire. After all, Esther Mikaelson was the witch who created the Original vampires. One would suppose that, if she had the power to create them, she would also have the power to undo and/or kill them (see The Vampire Diaries, Season 3). Elijah is smart enough not to hand over that particular spell, but now that Davina knows that the grimoire exists, she might be able to get her hands on the pages she needs to take Elijah, Rebekah, and Klaus out.
She’s growing more powerful. The way we see it, Davina is only growing more powerful as she gets closer to the day the Harvest has to be performed by. Following that date, the witches of New Orleans will supposedly start losing their magic until it is gone completely, but right now, Davina is all magic, all the time. We’ve already seen her use lesser magic on the Originals (i.e. throwing Rebekah out of her attic, and wiping her memory of its location). We can only imagine what she will be able to do more the more powerful she becomes.
Cami can help. Though Cami might not have any magical abilities of her own, she was privy to the details of Klaus’s life — his strengths and weaknesses — as his “devoted stenographer.” Because he was compelling Cami to forget everything he told her, Klaus likely didn’t spare any details in the telling of his life story. Knowledge is power, and any information Cami can relay to Davina about the Originals’ weaknesses may help her work out the Original problem.
The white oak ash daggers. Last time we checked, Rebekah had hidden the white oak ash daggers to keep Klaus from using them — or, at least, she had all but one. At the time, there was still one in Elijah’s chest. When he was revived, did Davina keep the dagger or did Elijah? If it was the former, the Originals have got a serious problem on their hands. Who’s to say Davina can’t use her powers to increase the potency of the white oak ash daggers? Or, better yet, grow a new white oak tree? Legend has it that only wood cut from the white oak can bring death to an Original, which is why the Mikaelsons burnt the tree down and only a teeny, tiny bit of its ash remains.
If Davina found a way to grow another, then all immortality bets are off.
Do you think Davina will work out how to kill an Original? Do you think she might already know how? Sound off in the comments below!
The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
