The Originals Season 4 will not return until next year. However, small spoilers are being released already. Fans are also speculating on what will happen with their favorite characters. Viewers were upset when Cami and Davina died in The Originals. Cami’s death is permanent, but is there a possibility that Davina could return? If so, how would it affect Marcel, and could it lead to Klaus Mikaelson being forgiven and woken up from his agony-induced coma?
Warning: The Originals Season 4 spoilers are ahead.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Danielle Campbell spoke about Cami’s death. It seems that Leah Pipes will not be coming back, but what about Davina? If she were to return to The Originals in Season 4, how would it affect Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis)? Could it lead to Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) being forgiven and being woken up?
According to Ecumenical News, Davina’s return to The Originals could affect Marcel and Klaus’ storyline. As fans recall, Marcel lost it when Davina died. They tried to bring her back, but were unsuccessful. As a result, Marcel decided to make Klaus and the Mikaelson siblings pay the ultimate price. However, Freya (Riley Voelkel) came up with a spell to tether their lives to Klaus’. As long as he stays alive, then they are safe from death, but are stuck in a dreamscape. However, if he loses his life, then Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic), Rebekah (Claire Holt), and Freya will die, too.
Right now, Marcel believes that the Mikaelsons are dead. It was teased in an interview following the season finale of The Originals that Marcel will figure out they are still alive.
“Very soon after the end of our finale, because the Elijah line of vampires won’t drop dead, Marcel is bound to figure out that Elijah is still alive,” The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci told TV Line. “And when he does that, he’ll think, ‘Maybe Kol’s not dead either. Or Freya.'”
This could cause Marcel to get angry and confused. However, the whole reason he waged war against the Mikaelsons was because of Davina’s death in The Originals. If she were to return, he could forgive Klaus, thinking he’d suffered enough, and wake him up. What are the chances that Davina could come back in Season 4?
“It’s hard to say for sure,” Danielle Campbell told TV Line prior to the season finale. “A lot of it depends on story arcs and availability down the line, but I think it’s going to be up in the air. [The producers and writers are] still going to be figuring out the next storylines once they return for the next season, so it hinges on what’ll happen a few months from now. But never say never!”
Since The Originals is a supernatural TV show, anything is possible. Davina is a fan favorite. and viewers were devastated when she died. In an interview following the shocking deaths of Cami and Davina, the executive producer explained why they made the decision to kill Danielle Campbell’s character.
“We certainly didn’t want to do it,” Michael Narducci told Entertainment Weekly regarding Davina’s death. “We love the character and we love Danielle [Campbell]. Freya and Elijah realize that the family may suffer more loss if they don’t hijack this power that was meant to bring Davina back and to protect her from the ancestors. It’s just this idea that the choices we make have consequences and thematically, the whole season is about the Mikaelsons will put family first, family above all, always and forever. And that’s not necessarily going to result in justice or fairness or heroic behavior.”
As far as how Davina’s death will affect the storyline in The Originals Season 4, Narducci gave a little teaser.
“There’s a tectonic shift in the alliance between Marcel and the Mikaelsons,” Narducci told EW.
“Marcel is changed. Throughout this season, [he] has had opportunities to be loyal to the Mikaelsons and opportunities to betray the Mikaelsons — and he’s always come through. And despite that, this is how things have ended for him. He’s just realizing that it’s systemic — this betrayal, this treachery. The Mikaelsons will take care of each other no matter what and he is not someone inside that circle of protection. And just at this moment when he’s looking at them with new eyes, an opportunity has come into play that would change forever the power dynamic. That, to me, is one of the most exciting things about this entire season, the idea of a Marcel who is no longer beholden to Klaus and a second-string power level to Klaus. Marcel has a very difficult choice ahead of him.
Regarding Klaus waking up, the executive producer also gave some hints on how that would happen.
“I don’t know you should assume that the Mikaelsons are the ones that get Klaus out,” Narducci told TV Guide. “Maybe there’s some other person that’s going to get Klaus out. Maybe Klaus will get himself out. Maybe someone is going to decide that there’s a big problem in the world and Klaus Mikaelson is the only person that can help us deal with it.”
What do you think is going to happen in The Originals Season 4? Will Davina return? If so, how will it affect Marcel and Klaus?
