“The Originals” executive producer Michael Narducci has given his response to the burning question that happened in the third season’s mid-season finale episode: Is Cami O’Connell (Leah Pipes) really gone in the CW TV series? Narducci also teased on the other storylines that will be explored when “The Originals” Season 3 returns in January 2016.

Spoiler Alert: This feature contains major “The Originals” Season 3 spoilers.

In “The Originals” Season 3 mid-season finale episode, Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) woke up with Cami’s lifeless body next to him. The person responsible for slashing Cami’s throat out of jealousy is none other than Klaus’ ex-girlfriend Aurora de Martel (Rebecca Breeds).

Pipes posted on her Twitter account @leahmariepipes that “The Brave Bartender” character that she has been portraying for the past couple of years will be missed. The 27-year-old actress also expressed gratitude to the fans who loved “The Originals” character Cami O’Connell.

In an Entertainment Weekly (EW) interview, Narducci explained that fans of “The Originals” love to follow the lives of the fictional characters so the story that they are telling shows the characters respond in their greatest despair. “We have to believe that there is hope and there is love and there is family and there is the devotion that we have to one another as spirits and human people,” Narducci told EW.

Additionally, Narducci recounted the Bible verse about light and darkness that Cami recited at the grave of her twin brother. “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness will never overcome it.’ That is a core aspect of who this person is, and it’s something to keep in mind,” Narducci teased.

Narducci revealed that the Klaus-Cami or “Klamille” relationship in the CW TV series developed slowly. Narducci further shared that co-executive producer Julie Plec is the person to be credited for the pairing’s tragedy in “The Originals” Season 3, episode 9 titled “Savior.”

“Julie felt very strongly that the tragedy of what we do in this episode would make a fantastic episode for the midseason finale. It just so happened that that horrific moment lined up perfectly with the moment of romantic realization for these two people,” Narducci explained.

Meanwhile, Narducci shared that solving a portion of the prophecy was the main intention when Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt) asked her older brother, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), to dagger her in “The Originals” Season 3 mid-season finale episode. However, Narducci teased that the upcoming episodes will determine if Rebekah and Elijah’s plan is going to play out exactly that way.

As for Vincent Griffith (Yusuf Gatewood), Narducci shared that “The Originals” witch character is becoming a really strong force in the third season of the CW TV series. Narducci also thinks that Vincent has good principles and a sound moral judgement.

However, Narducci teased that the upcoming episodes of “The Originals” Season 3 will determine if Vincent is a friend, a foe or part of the prophecy because his principles and sense of justice may put him at terrible odds with the Original family. Narducci also shared that Finn Mikaelson (Casper Zafer) is the leverage that Tristan de Martel (Oliver Ackland) has over Vincent so the Finn-Vincent or “Finncent” storyline will be explored when “The Originals” Season 3 returns with episode 10 titled “Ghost of the Mississippi” on Friday night, Jan. 29, at 9/8c on the CW Network.
