Witches are reigning in New Orleans. Need a recap of the previous episode? Click HERE!
Celeste was a powerful witch, just like Davina but had an unfortunate death and now has been coming back to New Orleans in the form of Davina’s drawings. But what is the meaning of her drawings? As Elijah, Klaus and Hayley are talking about the “all powerful”, Davina is enraged with Marcel throwing a fit, but as she continues to throw things at him she pauses and starts throwing up dirt and stones. The house shakes as well as the whole town.
Rebekah goes to check on her and tells her that she told her to go easy on causing havoc. But Davina insists that it is beyond her control. Elijah knowing that this is a witch’s problem decides to go to them, not until Hayley informs Elijah of what she has done to protect her family. So apparently as we know from last episode, Hayley went through Elijah’s journal to find out where Celeste’s remains were to tell Sophie. Elijah hurt by what Hayley has done tells her that Celeste asked him to hide her remains where no one could find her and never disturb her. Now Elijah’s promise to Celeste is broken and we know that Elijah’s promises are everything.
Sophie, who only cares about her niece, thinks that she must gather more power and must complete the Harvest. With Davina holding all the power, terrible things will happen. Wind, water and fire among other disastrous Earth shattering events will proceed and then it could be goodbye New Orleans. Sophie’s warnings are not taken lightly but Davina and her power are strong and convincing them gets a little easier. Davina’s death is said to complete the Harvest, where the other sacrificed witches will be resurrected, all the witches will regain their power and thus the Originals will lose their power over them. Not wanting to lose the empire they built, Klaus and Elijah go out to talk to certain people on their list.
Rebekah, still on her plan to win over New Orleans goes to Sophie to enlist her on her team. When it comes to it, witches will have their power and Rebekah will have her witch to take control. But could this happen? Davina must be sacrificed but Marcel is too invested in her to let that happen. While he has flashbacks of the day he saved Davina he says that he is done listening to Klaus, kills some vamps and takes Davina with him.
Elijah goes to the graveyard while Sophie tries to resurrect Celeste. Turns out that Celeste was Elijah’s one true love who we had found out about when he was delusional from Klaus’ bite. The night gets intense as time is running out. Davina is nowhere to be found, the Earth is shattering, but she is safe in Marcel’s arms who tells her that no one will hurt her. Father Kieran has no idea where they could be either, to Hayley’s surprise she finds a clan of ware wolves at the church where Klaus takes her. Surprised that Klaus would help out wolves, she discovers that they are part of Klaus’ clan. They share the same blood and so does the baby that is in her. As he leaves he gives her some advice, to just apologize to Elijah, he is a master of forgiveness. Wow, nice one Klaus, looks like there’s heart in there.
On the witches side it seems that they can’t bring Celeste back and they are losing time. As they tell Elijah that there is no other way he stops and tells him that there is one other witch who could provide the power. His mother. Elijah goes to Rebekah and Klaus to tell them the plan and then it’s time to say hello to dearest momma. Clever Rebekah knows the right person to go to to find out where Marcel could have taken Davina. Thierry knows exactly the correct spot and Rebekah seeks them out. Phase one, rain, starts to pour and the beginning of Davina’s terrible disaster begins. The Originals and Hayley along with Father Kieran unite to bring back their mother and finish the Harvest. Rebekah tells them that Marcel will bring her to them.
Davina on the other hand knows that her time has come. She takes herself to be sacrificed. As her throat gets slit, the rains stops. The girls are all laid down and the reaping begins. Sophie does the ritual but for a moment nothing happens. And nothing ever happens. The girls are not resurrected and it’s the end. Davina is dead and Marcel is torn. He has lost his friend, his family and the one person he cared about. Hayley and Elijah walk the streets of the town and she apologizes to him. Though it is hard for him to forgive her she tells him that she lives in the now. As she walks away Elijah grabs her and for an intense moment we all pray that he will grab her and give her the best kiss ever…but he doesn’t. He just gets close enough to want it, but backs away. So now Klaus and Rebekah ponder the loss of the tween witches but wonder one specific thing.
Where did all the power go? Rebekah starts to think, since four girls died, where and who has it now?
Something must be up though, a strange man appears out of the graveyard, the witch is making some strange concoction and other witches are entering New Orleans. As they all gather around, they ask what this is all for, the witch says first of all call me by my real name, “Celeste”! OMG!!
