After last night’s game-changing episode of The Originals (Season 1, Episode 5: “Sinners and Saints”), we’re not sure who can be trusted in the French Quarter! That being said, we are desperate to learn even more about teenaged witch/sacrificial lamb Davina Claire (Danielle Campbell). What did Danielle tell Just Jared Jr. about her character’s motivations?
“[Davina] has a view of everyone kind of installed in her head just from what she’s heard and what she already experienced,” Danielle says. “She has these views for a reason and a betrayal of trust that happened along the way with certain characters. She’s kind of growing as a normal teenager and also as this girl who has this immense power, which she’s starting to understand and figure out how it works. So she’s kind of getting tossed in this war of whose side she should be on and just kind of growing up in general.”
The big question is: which side will she choose? Will she hold up her end of the bargain with Elijah, whatever that may be? Will she stay loyal to Marcel, the vampire who saved her from having her throat slit in “The Harvest”? Or, will become an independent agent, seeking power and independence for herself? This show has gotten seriously intense, and we love it.
Furthermore, is there another “betrayal of trust” in Davina’s future? It seems that, whichever path she chooses for herself, she will be betraying someone - whether it is the witch community that raised her; Marcel, who saved her; or Elijah, the “honorable” vampire who promised her the means to learn how to control her immense power. If The Originals is anything like its source material, The Vampire Diaries, the spin-off will pull an epic plot twist to Davina’s storyline we never even considered. Bring it on, show!
