Spoiler: This post contains plot points from the May 6 episode of The Originals.

After an hour-long attempt to resurrect Davina failed, The Originals said goodbye to the young witch we met three years ago. (Whether she’ll be back is another question.)

Regardless, EW spoke with star Danielle Campbell about some of her favorite memories from her time playing the teenage witch.

On her favorite Davina-Marcel moment: [It’s] one of them when she’s dying. It was season 1 when she sacrificed herself and they were in the train crate and she was telling him that she understands. I thought that moment between the two of them was beautiful. That episode was so fun to film: We had fire, we had rain cranes, we had everything. It was a massive episode.

On Davina’s transformation from the pilot: What I’ve loved from playing her is I started the show when I was just 17 so now I’m 21, and I’ve gotten to grow with her. You’ve seen her go through so much and she’s so much stronger now. At the very beginning, she was this scared little girl in the attic and now she’s been a regent, she’s gone through torture, she’s died, she’s come back — she’s just taken on so much. She’s a real leader; she’s strong and she cares about people. And people who are on her side who she trusts, she will do anything for them. She’s always had more power than an average witch. She can handle so much and I thought that was something really cool about her character.

On her favorite Davina story to play: Season 2 was a lot of fun because there were a lot of big discoveries for Davina. She became more witty; she was kind of the outcast. You saw her being her own person and that’s when she first met Kol, so that was an interesting introduction. So season 2 for Davina was a big switch and was really fun to play.

The Originals airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
