‘The Originals’ season 3 premiere reaction: On Davina’s big decision with Hayley

Originals -Going into the season 3 premiere of “The Originals,” we were assuming that Hayley was probably going to be someone who was forced to stick around in wolf form for at least a couple of episodes. Curses in this world, after all, are not always easy things to break.

At the same time, we figure that part of what you have to reconcile here is that you want to use Phoebe Tonkin as much as you can given that she is a series regular, and the idea of not really getting to see much of her in the early going is depressing. Maybe this is in part why we ultimately saw Davina help her during the season 3 premiere Thursday night … albeit with a price that she does some of her bidding.

In further explaining the motives of Danielle Campbell’s character to The Hollywood Reporter, Julie Plec had the following to say:

“Davina, having taken Marcel’s advice perhaps a little bit too much to heart, really needs an assist in dealing with the witches that have shown their disrespect to her. She wants to make a point and she wants to make it loudly, and she’s going to use Hayley to help her do that.”

While this may be the position that Hayley finds herself in during the early going this season, we cannot imagine it staying this way forever. After all, this is a show where almost everything for everyone is in some sort of near-constant state of flux.

Stay tuned; we imagine that we’ll continue to have more updates on “The Originals” over time!
