On Kol OOC and Kolvina
I still don’t understand why people think Kol falling in love and caring for Davina is totally OOC. As others have pointed out, he has always been the outsider amongst his siblings and has rarely had anyone on his side at this point. When he died the second time around only Rebekah and Davina made a solid effort to bring him back..that was it. Klaus and Elijah barely mentioned him and I don’t think Freya mentioned his existence until the last episode. (Also not sure why she never thought about helping Rebekah find a spell to bring him back..) Right there you have it. Davina focused all of her energy on finding a way to bring Kol back and he knew that. It was made clear that she was doing everything possible to help and save him. Even months after he died, she was relentless. She did it. She was the one to bring him back. She IS the one that is always there for him. She’s providing the love, support, and trust he’s never really experienced.
I also think it is made clear that this experience is new to him. He needed Freya to confirm for him that Davina “did right by him.” It was like he was unsure what to do in this type of relationship. When he had to decide to stay and help his family or go back to Davina that night he recognized that his loyalties had to be split. He would help his family but not at the expense of Davina’s happiness. She did right by him and he realized he had to do right by her. That this is how a relationship works. Give and take.
And the age situation…people…Elena and Caroline were both 16 when they hooked up with Stefan and Damon in the 1st season of TVD…Davina is at least 18 at this point. Probably 19. She seems younger because the entire cast of The Originals and the storyline is based on older characters. TVD revolved around the life of a 16 year old girl, the originals is revolved around the lives of 1,000 year old characters. This cannot be used as an arguing point.
Yes Kol is/was a crazy phsycotic vampire but that doesn’t mean he can’t fall in love! Just a few examples of “bad” vampires that have fallen in love on this show1) Season 1 Damon
2) Ripper Stefan
If they can all fall in love, Kol can too. Let characters develop. He obviously still has problems with his dangerous nature but it isn’t farfetched to say Davina is changing him and helping his character become a more complex addition to the show. If you want him to stick around for the long run you can’t expect him to go around killing everybody in sight with no consequences and no remorse. Even Klaus and Elijah would not accept that behavior at this point. He can’t be the same Kol from The Vampire Diaries if we want him to be on the show in the long run.
