This week the witches go with a cold open that sets up the two main plots for the night. In one scene Wendy is sitting bound in a chair within a magic circle while Ingrid tortures her (We are guessing this is not “our” Ingrid; we are later proved right). In the other scene, which turns out to be a dream sequence, a night spent taking inventory at the bar turns into some hot and heavy action for Freya and Killian, but then Freya wakes up next to Dash. Love triangle juxtaposition action!
After last week’s episode whose theme seemed to be “ghosts gonna ghost,” this week we turn back to the ongoing theme of “people always kill us.” With that, on to the recap!
We open with the big reveal…Joanna and Baldy shifter were good friends back in ye olden times. However, she knifed his ear off because he turned in her girls for doing witchcraft, for which they were burned at the bad special effects stake. However, we don’t stick around these interesting parts long enough; we go right to modern day lesson time during which we basically learn that everyone should be careful with their magic. Shocker!
Mixing it up a bit, this episode begins with a dream sequence. However, it takes a solid three or four minutes for anyone in the audience to actually realize it’s a dream since it seems more like a series of disjointed scenes of the witches four. Freya wakes up next to her fiancee, goes to get a glass of water, and ends up sexing up Killian. Ingrid and Wendy read some tarot cards on the kitchen table, discover Ingrid is going to die, and Ingrid watches her hands turn white for what was really an unnecessarily long time. Finally, Joanna has a lot of intense staring with her shifter. But then they all wake up!
We open this episode right where the previous one left off: all of the witches are having some serious issues. Ingrid found out she is a witchy woman, Freya is trapped in a painting, Joanna is in custody for a murder the shifter who looks like her committed, and Wendy is dead. We feel Wendy got the short end of this deal.
But never fear! Ingrid pretty easily locates her mother’s secret stash of magic stuff, and the magic chest opens when Ingrid says “open.” She appears to be as surprised by this ease of entry as we are. However, it is all good because in the chest is the family grimoire, in which there is a resurrection spell that Ingrid promptly uses to resurrect her aunt Wendy. We’re pretty happy with this development given that we are also Wendy fans.
