Hi,
Since you are looking at the difference between A and D.
The only difference in the two is " use of had"...
Had is ofcourse used to indicate an earlier event when compared to a later event.
Here originally itself suggests an earlier time.

Also the part after BUT talks of two different time intervals and correctly uses HAD

But the OA is D. I thought the same way as you said. Picked A over D.
