Danielle Campbell Returning To 'Originals' For One Episode

AHHHHHH!!! JJJ is freaking out over this news of Danielle Campbell coming back to The Originals.

Although it’s only one episode, we are stoked about this because we seriously miss Davina!

According to EOnline, Davina will be back in the May 12th episode called “Voodoo in my Blood.”

In the episode, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) travel to the ancestral world after being summoned by the ancestors, and while there, they come face to face with Davina.

She’s the one person who holds the secrets to stopping the Hollow, also known as the creepy evil force that’s taken over New Orleans.

Eep! We can’t wait!

Daniel Gillies To Direct Episode of 'The Originals'

Daniel Gillies To Direct Episode of 'The Originals'

Daniel Gillies is the next star to step behind the camera on The Originals.

Talking with ET, the actor, who plays Elijah, opened up about the opportunity.

“It was something that I had wanted to do and it was something that I had seen Joseph Morgan do in the season before, so I was immediately and violently jealous,” he shared. “I thought, ‘Well, I’ve got to do that.’

Daniel adds, “And then Charles [Michael Davis] got signed up and I thought, ‘Well, if that hack is going to do it, now I’ve got to jump in.’”

So, who’s the worst to work with as a director? “I would say me. I’m just so resistant to direction.”

“I didn’t realize what an a**hole I was to direct until I directed me and I was like, ‘Oh! This is why everyone has got a problem with me!’ Like, I’m the worst,” Daniel says.

“Why am I contesting every line? I’m like, ‘Oh, my character wouldn’t say that,’ and then I had to come back to the monitors and yell at me.”

The Originals' Phoebe Tonkin Dishes On Hayley's Main Priority - Her Daughter Hope

The Originals' Phoebe Tonkin Dishes On Hayley's Main Priority - Her Daughter Hope

Things are getting very serious on tonight’s all-new Originals.

Desperate to save her daughter, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) turns to Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) for help uncovering information about the mysterious force that has set its sights on the children of New Orleans.

“That’s what’s so terrifying about the big bad of the season is that they don’t really know much about it,” Phoebe shared with EW. “They don’t know why it’s here; they don’t know what it wants, and once it starts to feel like maybe this is something directly affecting or directly targeting Hope, that’s when everything gets serious.”

She adds, “Once you’re talking about protecting a 7-year-old who doesn’t understand her powers yet or anything, that’s when the stakes become very high.”

Tune in tonight @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW to watch!

Hope's Safety Concern No. 1 on 'The Originals'

Hope's Safety Concern No. 1 on 'The Originals'

Things are getting really intense on The Originals and right now, the only thing that matters, seems to be Hope’s safety.

The Mikaelsons and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), of course, will stop at nothing to protect her, which is why the Hayley/Elijah romance is on hold for now.

Executive producer Michael Narducci told TVLine.com, “It’s the height of selfishness and irresponsibility to not put [Hope’s] needs and concerns first. I’m not saying Hope is an obstacle to anyone’s happiness — far from it, since she’s the source of their inspiration and possibly their redemption — but she’s going to be the center of a lot of what’s going on moving forward.”

Phoebe added, “Not only does she have a mother and father who are willing to do anything to keep her safe, but this little girl also has all these very protective aunts and uncles,” she explains. “It’s a nice thing to see all these grown adults who are just completely devoted to this young girl.”

The Originals airs Fridays @ 8PM on The CW.

'The Originals': Hayley & Elijah's Romance Has Been Put on Hold For Now

'The Originals': Hayley & Elijah's Romance Has Been Put on Hold For Now

If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the great Hayley and Elijah romance to happen in the next Originals scene you see, you’re going to be disappointed.

While we know that their relationship was going to be filled with a bit of drama this season, actress Phoebe Tonkin admits that the entire relationship has been put on the back burner right now.

“As much as Hayley is happy to have [Elijah] back, her priority is still Hope’s safety,” she reveals. “She can’t focus on a romantic relationship that might become too time-consuming.”

Hope is all Hayley is focusing on right now.

“As her daughter gets older and becomes a little human being, Hayley becomes even more protective,” Phoebe adds. “So that’s her focus, to protect her kid.”

Hayley & Freya Just Can Not Get Along Right Now on 'The Originals' - See What Phoebe Tonkin Says About It All

Hayley & Freya Just Can Not Get Along Right Now on 'The Originals' - See What Phoebe Tonkin Says About It All

You will definitely feel the friction between Hayley and Freya on tonight’s episode of The Originals.

Phoebe Tonkin, who plays Hayley, has opened up about their dislike for each other on the show right now, saying, “They’re both very pivotal in the men’s decisions, and sometimes Hayley and Freya have conflicting opinions.”

She continues, “They’ve both been starved of family for so long, in their respective ways, that they feel very protective of their family. They just don’t necessarily see eye to eye on how to support or advise their family members.”

So, will they ever move past it all? “I think you’re going to see a little bit of that kind of conflict, in the next few episodes.”

Phoebe adds, “That’s something that we do explore, and that’s really nice to have. Freya and Hayley didn’t have much to do with each other last season, so it’s really nice to play with that, this season.”

Tune into The Originals TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Charles Michael Davis Opens Up About Making His 'Originals' Directorial Debut

Charles Michael Davis Opens Up About Making His 'Originals' Directorial Debut

Charles Michael Davis got behind the camera on this season of The Originals.

He is making his directorial debut with episode 7, which will likely air in late April/early May.

“I’ve been shadowing since Season 2. The experience was good. It was very involving,” Charles told Collider.com. “I used to play Poker, and it’s like any game that you play where you just don’t want to get up and leave the table because you’re so involved.”

He added, “It was great directing the cast members and to really see, from the other side of the camera, how they operate, what really works to serve the story, and how they bring that to the table, in their different styles. It was a really, really, really great experience.”

JJJ was actually on set back in season three and ran into Charles shadowing a director on set of Containment at the time. We can’t wait to see all his hard work play out on screen!

The Originals airs Fridays @ 8PM on The CW.

Is Charles Michael Davis' Marcel on 'The Originals' Corrupt By Power?

Is Charles Michael Davis' Marcel on 'The Originals' Corrupt By Power?

Don’t underestimate this handsome devil — The Originals Marcel has a lot of power.

“Let me put it to you this way – there’s no supernatural demon that is resting inside Marcel and corrupting and making him lose his mind,” showrunner Michael Narducci recently shared about Charles Michael Davis‘ character in season four.

He adds that his story arc this season is “not an addiction metaphor; it’s not a possession metaphor. Marcel is the same Marcel he has always been, for better or for worse.”

“He is, for all intents and purposes, as strong and as lethal and as dangerous, and as immortal and indestructible as any of the other characters in this series because of what happened to him at the end of last season,” Michael says. “So then, the question becomes, is he corrupted by having that power? Is he going to become arrogant? Is he going to exercise compassion? That’s the journey that I’m interested in exploring as Marcel.”

Tune in to tonight’s new episode called “No Quarter” @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
