Behind the Scenes

  • This episode marks Danielle Campbell's final appearance as a series regular.
  • This episode hit the series lowest point in viewers to date with 0.79 million.
  • Our set decoration team always works to make our world feel as authentically New Orleans as possible, which means there are lots of lovely details that don’t necessarily make it to the screen. During Cami’s second line funeral — in addition to the dancers, mourners, musicians and tourists — there were our ubiquitous fortune-telling stands, complete with candles, crystals, and tarot cards, which is how I ended up getting talked into divining Daniel’s future between takes. For the record, he is the King of Wands, a “natural born leader,” and a “visionary.” He did not disagree with this assessment.
  • The S.W.A.T. team Kinney enlists to take down the witches at the bodega was comprised of very real S.W.A.T. people — and our action-loving director Jeff was pretty much a kid at Christmas when they arrived on set. Needless to say, they were a bit of an intimidating bunch — at least at first (they’re all actually very nice guys!). However, we’re pretty sure there was less goofing around than usual around that night.
  • Also to be filed under things that were very, very real: the cockroaches in Vincent’s old house. Apparently we got a bit lucky with the ones that climbed up the wall… turns out, cockroaches don’t respond to verbal commands all that well, and they pretty much do as they please. Go figure. Personally, as a former New Yorker with a bit of insect phobia, I’m hoping that next time we can locate some tiny, realistic roach robots. *Shudder*
  • There are few things in production as challenging — and mildly disorienting — as true night shoots, especially when you’re in a new and far-flung location. For two nights in a row, the entire production worked from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. to get the pivotal bridge scenes between Klaus, Marcel, and Elijah, which is how a bunch of the crew ended up celebrating a good day of shooting with a nightcap in the lobby of our hotel… just as all the other guests were starting to line up for their pancakes.
  • Davina’s big hero moment — ultimately her revenge on the ancestors — was, in part, inspired by the movie Terminator 2, when the character of Miles Dyson (also known as Olivia Pope’s dad!) manages to hold on just long enough to blow up the Cyberdyne labs. Of course, we’d like to think that Davina’s sacrifice was equally heroic, with just a *touch* more romance thrown in for good measure. [Note: I’m crying as I write this.]
  • The title refers to the part of the episode when Kol remarks "Give 'em hell, Davina Claire".

Condemned to an unknownable hell. And what's your excuse sister? Were you so overcome with guilt at what you did that you couldn't bring yourself to indulge in whisky and finger food? Or were you just too busy desecrating more dead? Is this to be your hobby now?"
Freya: "When Lucien died, he was convinced the Prophecy would still unfold. I need to know if he was right. These are the remains of his Oracle Alexis. Hers was a power I barely understood. But now that my own strength has been augmented by the Ancestors, I can try to channel her, forecast as she did and find out if Lucien was right or we can finally put this nightmare behind us."
