If there’s one character who left us most intrigued during The Originals series premiere, it was the young witch Davina (Danielle Campbell). The mysterious spell-caster is Marcel’s (Charles Michael Davis) secret weapon and, apparently, being held captive by him. So how exactly does such a little doll end up working for a scrapper-turned-tyrannical-king-of-the-Big-Easy and doing his bidding?
Though Davina looks delicate, she’s anything but. She’s powerful and helps Marcel keep tabs on local witches who try to perform magic in secret. As for why she doesn’t use her abilities to break free from Marcel’s grasp, we will find out soon enough. In fact, it seems as though the show’s fourth episode, “Girl in New Orleans,” will focus more on Davina and her back story.
Take a look below at the official synopsis for The Originals Season 1, Episode 4 (which is set to air on October 22 at 8pm ET on The CW) for further details!
With the annual Dauphine Street music festival around the corner, Davina (Danielle Campbell), itching for a night out, convinces Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) to let her attend. Marcel cautiously obliges but asks Cami (Leah Pipes) to keep a watchful eye on Davina. Agnes (guest star Karen Kaia Livers) convinces Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to visit a mysterious doctor in the bayou where she makes a shocking discovery. Meanwhile, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) takes a special interest in Cami, who reveals some alarming information about her past, and a determined Rebekah (Claire Holt) is on a mission to get to the bottom of a recent strange encounter involving Elijah (Daniel Gillies). Daniella Pineda also stars.
Do you think Marcel is blackmailing Davina or is she suffering from Stockholm syndrome? Or perhaps she considers her isolated shack home? Post your thoughts in the comments!
