The Originals Spoilers: Rebekah Is “Fighting For Her Own Survival”
After last night’s epic episode of The Originals, we’re wondering what the aftermath of the failed completion of the Harvest Festival — and Davina’s (Danielle Campbell) death — will have in store for the other supernaturals in the Quarter. Since a lot happened in Season 1, Episode 11 (“Après Moi, Le Déluge”), we’re sure Rebekah (Claire Holt) is going to have to scramble to adapt to the loss of the teenage witch.
Showrunner Julie Plec spoke to TVLine about what’s next for the snarky vamp. “Rebekah’s been very much on the offense for the last few episodes,” she began. “As a result of these witches having returned, the whole family, Rebekah included, find themselves on the defense.” The “witches” Julie is referring to are no doubt the powerful elders Celeste revived in the last few moments of the episode. Spoiler alert: they look like bad news bears.
“It definitely throws a wrench into her intentions of building allies and plotting against Marcel and Klaus, because she’s actually fighting for her own survival,” Julie continued. “It changes up that dynamic in a really interesting way.”
Yeah, we have to regretfully admit that Rebekah is probably going to have to put her revenge plans on the back-burner and side with the men in her life to survive this witchy problem. Looks like Davina was a key piece of the diplomatic puzzle going on down in New Orleans. We hope she returns!

The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
