The Originals - Julie Plec Interview

Thanks to Lily for the heads up.

Warning: Do not continue reading the following article unless you've watched The Originals' Feb. 4 episode, "Crescent City." Spoilers ahead!

And yet another witch bites the dust!

After the tragic death of Davina (Danielle Campbell), The Originals killed another New Orleans witch on Tuesday night's episode: Sophie (Daniella Pineda), who was killed by the niece, Monique, she worked so hard to resurrect all season long on the CW drama. Rough twist, girl!

But another witch also got our attention during "Crescent City": Celeste (Shannon Kane), who finally revealed herself to Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and proved just how powerful she, Bastianna (Shannon Eubanks) and Genevieve (Elyse Levesque) are, kidnapping Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) by episode's end after Elijah chose to save Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) instead of his siblings.

A lot went down in this episode, so we got scoop from executive producer Julie Plec on what's ahead for the Original siblings after they messed with the wrong witches and how Jackson (Nathan Parsons), Hayley's new werewolf love interest, will factor into her relationship with Elijah...

Death Sticks: "It seems so yes," Plec confirmed of Sophie's death being a permanent one. "I think that in this particular case, the witches having taken their vengeance against a non-believer, I don't think there's much of a hope for her to recover, given that more often than not, you need witch intervention to have a second chance at life," she explained. "So I think that this may be the end of Miss Sophie."

Original Woes: Plec teases that the next episode is "actually really crazy" as they do something theshow has never done before.

"We go outside of the Quarter and we put Rebekah and Klaus into a trap situation in a creepy, horrible, messed up sanitarium from back in the day, and Genevieve, just basically working between the two of them, enacts her revenge," she says. "We'll learn why Genevieve's revenge is so specifically targeted towards Rebekah and what exactly she's going to do to make Rebekah suffer as much as possible."
And yes, there will be consequences for Elijah after he decided to save Hayley over his brother and sister. "There's a guilt attached to that, there's a shame attached to that," Plec says. "There's a logic attached to it, of course—when in doubt, save the baby. But it definitely drives him very hard to rescue his siblings in the next episode and to try and pull the family back together, even as it's under assault."
