Executive producer Julie Plec explained the Harvest mythology to TVLine: “Look, the mythology of the Harvest is that these four witches pass into limbo, waiting for their magic to spread back to the Earth. After their magic is spread back to the Earth, then they would be resurrected. What we saw at the end of the episode is that their magic was, basically, hijacked. If you follow the logic of the mythology to its magical conclusion, then it’s possible that we haven’t seen the last of these girls. But we’ve got to get rid of these nasty hijackers first.”
So, if the Harvest is completed within the allotted window, then there’s a chance Davina and the other young witches will rise from the dead as planned. Sounds good to us! As epicly awesome as Davina’s death scene was — and as affecting her death will be on the other characters on the show, namely Marcel — we’re not ready to lose this character. In many ways, she humanizes this show with her desires to be a regular teenager with a regular life. If her character does return, it will be interesting to see if her goals are the same. Presumably, she will nowhere near as powerful, which will change her role in the show, but not necessarily diminish it. We’re eager to see who Davina is without such terrifying power.
Do you think Davina will come back from the dead? Do you want her to, or do you think it will diminish the stakes of the show? Sound off in the comments below!
The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
