As the Mikaelson family drama continues to unfold, Cami (Leah Pipes) not only finds herself in the middle of it, but she’s now volunteering her help!
JJJ caught up with Leah, who of course plays New Orleans’ resident badass human, to get the scoop on what we can expect in the next few episodes.
Is Cami in serious danger? And with everything going on, is romance in the French Quarter a lost cause? Check it:
JustJaredJr: We heard Cami mention it last week briefly, but what are her main motivations behind wanting to help take down Finn? Is it guilt about Klaus’ baby or is it something else?
Leah Pipes: It’s kind of a family legacy that she feels is her duty to take up. She realizes she has the power to make sure justice is served in New Orleans, and if she walks away from that power, she may regret it and look back and go, “I could have helped my friends and I was a coward not to.” So it’s her honor and sense of duty that’s keeping her around, and wanting to take care of Finn.
Cami’s guilt for Klaus’ baby not being alive is one example of why she needs to do this, but who knows how many people will die if she doesn’t fight the good fight. She has an arsenal of weapons and so much information, and if she leaves it, it can end up in the wrong hands. And that’s on her.
The Originals airs TONIGHT, November 17 @ 8PM on The CW!
