We already knew the history of the titular characters on “The Originals,” The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” spinoff, but the first few episodes of the new series have done an excellent job of filling us in on the origins of the show’s other main characters.
Tuesday’s (Oct. 29) episode, “Sinners and Saints,” we’ll finally find out why Davina (Danielle Campbell), the tiny but incredibly powerful teenage witch, has so much power inside of her and why the witches and vampires are fighting over who gets to care for her.
Campbell tells Zap2it she’s heard quite a few theories about how her character has so much strength. “I’ve heard people say she’s a demon witch, which was interesting for me,” she says. “Everyone thinks I’m this evil little girl, and I totally get it. I feel like after they see this week’s episode they’re going to totally love her and understand why she feels this way.”
Last week, we learned all about Cami (Leah Pipes), the token human who’s caught the eye of both the immortal vampire/werewolf hybrid Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and the reigning unofficial vampire king of NOLA, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). “Personally, I’m fine with either one,” she tells Zap2it of Cami’s romantic prospects. “I really think she’s not in the place to be in a relationship right now, so hopefully she stays independent.”
Tuesday, we’ll learn how Cami’s sad story intertwines with Davina’s, and why Davina must choose sides too. Spoiler: It involves murder, ancient magic, and possible new alliances. So, you know, just another Tuesday on The CW!
Stay tuned to Zap2it after the east coast airing of “The Originals” for more from Campbell and Pipes about what’s to come.
“The Originals” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
