How lovely is our favorite, fake half witch? Sabrina seems to take Wardell’s story to the nominal value: that Wardell is a witch who was Edwards “acolyte” (hmm) and is “caring” Sabrina to commemorate Edward’s wishes ( oooh-kay ) and that she and Edward joined herself because she was omitted from her own klaus, the shadow of Shadow, after falling in love with a mortal and engaged throttle! ). “There I was a witch without a covenant, with no one understanding my situation.”
Father Blackwood wanted to use brutal power, remember? Making Sabrina do as the dark Lord demands. But Witch Wardell showed it wisely as a kind of tactic that would inevitably fail with someone as hard as Sabrina. Her story of falling in love with the mortal is so on-the-nose I can not believe Sabrina does not look through it. For anyone whose entire M.O. is to question how things are done, Sabrina is not so knowledgeable about asking questions at these pressing personal times. When do you think she will find out this witch killed the real Wardell?
Sabrina is not interested in having a nice supernatural chaperon. Ambrose offers to make all the teeth fall out, but Sabrina is not interested. Points for loyalty and creativity, though.
Unfortunately for those of us who find the founding gift at Greendale to be the fastest advancement part of this otherwise luscious, wonderfully spooky series, much time in this episode is dedicated to Sabrina’s mortal friends and their brush with the demon who owns Uncle Jesse’s body . If it was not necessarily clear to all of us, Rosie is afraid of her blindness, Suzie is afraid she is a “disgust” to not carefully check the girl’s sex box, and Harvey, in a kind of metatreatment, is afraid that he to be afraid to do it in this dangerous world and to be worthy of Sabrina’s love.
Harvey confesses in Sabrina that he saw the demon from uncle Jesse’s uncle’s uncle’s uncle. Sabrina gas lamps Harvey thinks he’s crazy. Honestly, rude! Do not Sabrina eventually want to come to Harvey about her identity? Half witch, whole hypocrite, no? Sabrina immediately denies Witchell in the corridors because she is not interested in “more half truth”, which is so pot-cold-the-cauldron-black, right?
Sabrina tells his aunts about possession, which gives us this great Zelda line: “Mephistopheles, save us from the melody drama of a teenage eve.” Witches are not involved in mortal business, and in any case they do not exorcism or care about people’s fate.  For the benefit of anyone who knows better, Sabrina astral projects in Uncle Jesse’s room, where the demon tricks her into the tank, she told her name (it’s just an anagram for “ice cream” that I have to recognize is beautifully smart for someone who assumes he lives in hell and can never eat cold candy) before she hits Sabrina’s throat and tries to own her too.
On her return to the common realm, Sabrina gives Ambrose and figures she deals with a higher demon than she expected. With the relaxed air of someone who has not thought of anything else for days, Sabrina goes: “Perhaps I can ask Nicholas Scratch.” And then she can handle it to Harvey’s house, feeling all guilty of how completely Nick is (I guess) and to apologize for being so dismissive of his batshit cloning theory earlier. She suggests that they take a field trip to the mines together for clues. Harvey Balks: “You can break your ankle. A demon could eat you!” Thanks Harvey, to just cover all sorts of possibilities there.
I do not mean to be so hard on our heroine here but again, it seems that she should give things about ten minutes of thought before she only talks about doing them? Have a brainstorm session? Is she really dressed for mining? Sabrina finds this stone with a worm carved into it, divided into half, ten bidding tablets, and she finds Witch Wardell, who followed her. If any of these tunnels really appear make dig all the way to hell! While Sabrina is busy to find this catch, Harvey is curled up in the fetus’s position with an extremely chill panic attack. Sabrina tells him that it only turns out to make him “the bravest” and they kiss, probably because she tries to silence the voice in her head telling her would not it be better with Nick? HMMM ??
In magic class, Sabrina holds interruptions and asks for exorcisms. “Exorcisms is a Catholic ritual as male priests call on false ] God,” Blackwood says to her, trying to desperately make her shut up and not succeed. Sabrina warns everyone that if the word of the demon comes out, it’s just a matter of time before the covenant risks exposure. Blackwood does not buy this, plus he does not care. His philosophy is like “live and live,” only in this case it is more “live and let the annoying mortals die”.
Who approaches Sabrina by class but NICHOLAS SCRATCH. “Do you want to talk about it?” Praise Satan!
Nick calls Sabrina a rebel, and she clearly says she has a boyfriend. And here things get very interesting, because Nick is all, “Yes, but you also have two natures. You go to two schools. Why not date two guys? I’m down to sharing.” WHY NOT , SABRINA. This is future liberal want! Sabrina’s eyes make a cartoon doll out of her head. She is not not interested.
Unfortunately, we have to leave this explosive chemistry behind it’s time to execute illegal exorcism. (Not before Sabrina threatens his aunt Z with “If I can not get help from the Night Church, I get help from the Catholic Church on the way!” I love it.)
Wardell informs the aunts that Edward wrote a rite so witches could perform exorcisms. Moster Hilda is down, because she has already been exempted and therefore is completely uneven to give. Moster Z tries to sit this round, but her concern for Sabrina’s safety wins the day, as you knew it would do. There is wind and flashing light and very shouting ” SISTERS, INSURANCE ON OUR SAFETY “, and even some bold names come out like witches here – Hi, Anne Boleyn!
The demon is this rough, bloody, slug-looking thing that will slithering back to hell. Sabrina is coming home and lives there, because she is grounded. “A deadly punishment for disturbing mortal business,” says Zelda aunt. Witch Wardell has managed to win Sabrina’s confidence, which should make us all very nervous. (She also murdered uncle Jesse and made it look as though he died of natural, demon-adjoining heart failure.)
And aunt Z and H avoids brutal punishment from Father Blackwood by exceeding the fact that the Earth’s son Zelda is the only one who can assure him that his wife Constance will surely deliver the twins as she is pregnant.
Sabrina still feels like a failure. “How will I ever surprise the dark lord?” She asks, and I think: Good Satan, Sabrina, stop telling all your master plans!
Running mysteries: Witches must be pregnant for thirteen months ?! What will happen to Luke and Ambrose now when Hilda spiced Luke’s coffee with a little love drink? What does the apocalyptic prophecy say? Why do all Wardell say “Wardwell” and force me to check IMDb 10,000 times per set to make sure I do not spell this very important name incorrectly?
