'The Originals' Season 1 Theories on Witch Deaths, Klaus & Rebekah, and What It All Means

The Originals had another huge week with its most recent episode "Crescent City" on Tuesday night. They're taking no prisoners so far this season with their latest huge kill, Sophie Devereaux at the hands of her beloved niece Monique, and then there's the drama that Elijah chose Hayley over his family. So what are the implications of bringing such major twists and character turns so early on in the series? Show runner Julie Plec gave E! the scoop on what to expect for the rest of the The Originals' first season — but it's in between the lines of Plec's "scoop" that we're really interested in.

The witches are wreaking havoc on the French Quarter right now, Klaus and Rebekah are in a tight spot and in for a rude awakening, and things are about to get seriously complicated for Hayley (remember that arranged marriage?). So, more or less, we're scrambling to find out what the consequences of last week's episode are for the rest of The Originals' season. That's where Plec comes in —E! asked the show exec some pointed questions about where the season is going and we're going to dissect her answers so you don't have to.


What This Means:

So Sophie is definitely gone. Monique branded her a non-believer and judging by how damn evil and bent on Quarter-domination that Celeste is, she's probably not the forgiving type. But Plec didn't say anything about Davina — which means that she could still come back! Yay, Davina! By saying "in this particular case" Plec isolated Sophie's death from Davina's earlier in the season. If we take that and run with it, the show runner might be implying that there's hope for Davina to return. I mean, Celeste did bring Monique back — the rest of the Harvest girls could be next.


What This Means:

Klaus knows something that can hurt Rebekah. If Genevieve's true target it Rebekah why would she bother wasting her time between the two? Is there no one else Celeste could spare to torture Klaus exclusively? And speaking of Celeste, she's the one that really wants Klaus to feel pain so she should be the one tormenting him. The only logical reason for Genevieve to be "working between the two of them" is if Klaus knows the way to break Rebekah.


What This Means:

He's probably going to get daggered — or at the very least, he's going to face a hell of a lot of trouble once Klaus and Rebekah are safe again. We all know how Klaus feels about trust and as far as this season's shown, Rebekah has a serious issue with trust as well. They're not going to take kindly to being left to the witches so he could save Hayley. We get the baby motive, but there's going to be a huge family rift.


What This Means:

Hayley's going to hit a wall with her feelings. Her and Elijah have been entertaining the idea of taking their relationship further for a long time — but now she's got the fate of her family to consider. She'll also grapple with the idea that she was essentially held prisoner when this all started by Klaus. Hayley's also going to rebel against Elijah if he tries to stop her from breaking the curse on her family. She made it clear when she rushed to stop the vampires from massacring the werewolves in the Bayou that she's siding with her real family no matter what. Arranged marriage or not, her and Elijah are going to be as good as over if he tries to interfere with her werewolf family.
