Klaus Gives Davina a Special Gift on Tonight's All-New Episode of 'The Originals'

Klaus Gives Davina a Special Gift on Tonight's All-New Episode of 'The Originals'

Davina (Danielle Campbell) looks super nervous next to Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in this still from tonight’s episode of The Originals.

In “The Big Uneasy,” Genevieve (guest star Elyse Levesque) asks Elijah (Daniel Gillies) to allow her coven to publicly celebrate a traditional feast day, where members of the community offer the witches gifts in return for blessings. Monique (guest star Yasmine Al Bustami) and Genevieve disagree over what the ancestors want from them, and Genevieve reveals her plan to build the witches power.

When Elijah focuses his attention on restoring their home to its former glory, Klaus accuses him of doing it only to impress Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin).

Next, Klaus sets a new plan in motion by finding Cary (guest star Jesse Boyd), a werewolf from his own line, and sending him off to find a missing piece of family history.

Marcel lets Thierry (guest star Callard Harris) in on his new plan to rebuild his power, but Diego (guest star Eka Darville) has his own ideas about the future.

At the Feast of the Blessings, Monique and Genevieve try to use the ceremony to teach Davina a lesson, but Klaus intervenes and gives Davina a surprisingly important gift. While Hayley struggles to decide where her loyalties should lie, the ceremony explodes into violence.

'The Originals' Interview: Nathan Parsons on Jackson's Deal with Klaus & Future with Hayley

'The Originals' Interview: Nathan Parsons on Jackson's Deal with Klaus & Future with Hayley

With each faction trying to strengthen its authority under this seemingly ill-fated treaty, things are only beginning to heat up in the French Quarter on The Originals.

While the witches are tapping into their ancestry, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) is off working with Thierry (Callard Harris) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) attempts to restore his home to its former glory.

Meanwhile, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has his own plan at play, temporarily teaming up with Jackson (Nathan Parsons) to find out more about his family line and give the pack more power than ever.

JJJ caught up with Nathan to talk about Jackson’s alliance with Klaus, his relationship with Hayley, and more. Check it!

The Originals airs TONIGHT @ 8PM on The CW!

JustJaredJr.com: Jackson has aligned himself with Klaus, at least for the time being, to serve both their interests. How far is Jackson willing to take this?

Nathan Parsons: Jackson will only do something if it’s right for his pact. He’s not afraid of dying, and to become a werewolf you have to kill someone, so they’ve all done that. There’s a line and a boundary, and that moves a little further in their situation because of everything they’ve been through and Marcel has done to them over the years. The line has been really pulled back there, so what Jackson is going to do is really whatever it takes. At this point, they’re out in the Bayou. It’s not healthy, it’s not safe, there are kids out there being raised in shacks and in tents in the swamp. These are kids are nephews of Jackson. This is his family and his life, so to have the opportunity to move all of that to New Orleans where he feels they belong, who knows how far he’s willing to go. I think he’ll do pretty much anything.

JJJ: Does he really trust that Klaus will hold up his side of the bargain? Jackson knows he has his own agenda, for sure.

NP: I think Klaus is only always going to have his own motive. You can never trust him. You can never trust a vampire in general. On the one hand, the pack could protect his child. But is this just another ploy for Klaus to get more power? Does he want to create a werewolf army now? I don’t think Jackson would be willing to let his people get turned into machines. But he is offering something pretty powerful and maybe we’ll play along for a little bit, but if he wants to use us that way, to become some half-crazed army, then no. I think that’s going to be a big pot of contention if that is the case.

“In ending Rebekah’s journey, we opened up a lot of room in the final chapter of the season, which is really exploring all these different factions we’ve introduced along the way: the witches, the werewolves, the humans, Klaus playing all sides, and now Elijah stepping into that leadership role to keep some semblance of peace,” EP Julie Plec shared about what’s next on the show.

She added, “You’ve got a lot of people who all want the same thing — control of the quarter — trying to play a dicey game of backstabbing and manipulation that won’t end well.”

Claire Holt on 'Originals' Exit: 'I Made a Life Choice, Not A Career Choice'

Claire Holt on 'Originals' Exit: 'I Made a Life Choice, Not A Career Choice'

Claire Holt steps out for The Originals panel during the 2014 PaleyFest held at The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday evening (March 22).

The 25-year-old actress was joined by her former co-stars Danielle Campbell, Leah Pipes and Phoebe Tonkin.

“It’s ludicrous,” Claire recently shared about the made up reports of why she exited the show. “I want to be very clear that they didn’t run out of material, I wasn’t pushed out, I wasn’t fed up with Rebekah, I didn’t quit mid-season, there was no drama, there was no rift between cast members; it really came down to the fact that I completed my initial commitment and made a life choice, not a career choice.”

Claire continued, “This show has been so amazing for my career, and I’ve had such unbelievable material, it was just never my intention to be away from home this long. It was a tough choice that I didn’t fully make it right up until the end, because I was enjoying myself so much. But three seasons later, I realized I hadn’t been home to Australia in years, I hadn’t seen my family, and I hadn’t spent time with the people I loved…but I want to make it so clear that this show has such a special place in my heart. I am so glad I was able to do The Originals, and I want to be a part of that family for a long time. I am simply looking at this as a temporary absence.”

FYI: Phoebe wore a Camilla and Marc dress, Saint Laurent heels and JewelMint jewels. Leah wore Alice and Olivia pants, a Mason top, Helmut Lang jacket and Saint Laurent shoes. Danielle wore a Sachin + Babi shirt, Zara skirt and Alice and Olivia shoes.

There's A Moon Over Bourbon Street on 'The Originals' Tonight

Phoebe Tonkin shares a dance with Daniel Gillies in this new still from The Originals.

In “Moon Over Bourbon Street”, after accusing Klaus (Joseph Morgan) of doing nothing while their control over the Quarter crumbles, Elijah (Gillies) makes a move to take matters into his own hands. He receives an intriguing offer of support from Francesca (Peta Sergeant), a beautiful woman from a powerful New Orleans family.

In an attempt to bring the warring factions of the city together, the Mikaelsons throw an extravagant party, where Klaus offers Jackson (Nathan Parsons) a tempting deal, Elijah and Hayley (Tonkin) share a dance, and a violent fight comes to a surprising end.

Finally, even as Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) works on a new path to power, he continues to help Cami (Leah Pipes) deal with her Uncle Kieran’s tragedy (Todd Stashwick).

“Moon Over Bourbon Street” airs TONIGHT, March 18th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW. 15+ pics inside…

Tonight’s episode of The Originals was Claire Holt‘s last as a series regular on The CW freshman series, JustJaredJr.com can confirm.

According to our sources, the 25-year-old Aussie actress will not be returning to the show in the near future, but the door remains open for her to reprise her role in guest appearances if everything lines up. Though, nothing is in the works as of right now.

In tonight’s (March 11) episode, titled “Farewell to Storyville,” her character Rebekah drives off into the unknown after she was set free by her brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan). She also said goodbye to her love Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and told Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to take care of her niece.
