We may have to wait until the new year for new episodes of The Originals — aka the winner of E! Online’s Fall TV Obsession Tournament — but at least we have some scoop to tide us over until 2014.
At the end of the mid-season finale (Season 1, Episode 9: “Reigning Pain in New Orleans”), Davina ran away from Klaus and Marcel and headed to Cami’s place seeking refuge. But where does this leave the teenage witch? She’s now hiding from the witches and the vampires — will Davina be forced to choose a side?
"January and February bring us some big episodes,” executive producer Julie Plec told E! Online. “A big move in the witch community, a life-altering choice made for Davina, and an attempt to complete the Harvest."
Sophie is obviously leading the charge when it comes to completing the Harvest. The former cynic is on a mission to complete the witchy ritual and bring her niece back to life. Despite her absence in the past few episodes, Sophie Devereaux is coming back with a vengeance when The Originals returns. With Agnus dead and gone, will Sophie ascend her own throne?
Meanwhile, Davina will be hiding out with Cami, but will Sophie be able to convince her to complete the Harvest? We don’t think it’s likely for stubborn Davina to give in that quickly. However, if the Harvest is completed, the witches will regain their power and become a much bigger problem for Klaus and Marcel’s vampire regime. Perhaps they’ll even team up with Hayley’s werewolf family in the bayou, because let’s face it: the only way they’re going to win this war is with a few alliances.
With vamps, witches, and werewolves vying for power in the Quarter, we’re not exactly sure where this war is headed, but we know it’s going to be epic.
Catch the next episode of The Originals on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
