Heh, well, now I see why Lilith was so hung up on the Dark Lord even though he acted like a bag of dicks all the time. DAT ASS! Between his cockiness and wearing a jacket without a shirt underneath, he was giving me a bit of a Damon Salvatore vibe.
I'm glad they eventually gave him a robe because I was thinking about what it would be like when he had a scene where he had to sit down. I was imagining him getting up and having brocade imprints on his ass cheeks.
I know I'm supposed to root for Sabrina and the Spellmans which means against the Dark Lord's plan coming to fruition, but part of me kind of wanted Sabrina to become the Dark Lord's queen just because it was clearly chapping Blackwood's hide to even think about bowing to Sabrina and I would have enjoyed watching him swallow his anger and disgust every time he had to obey her.
When Blackwood had everyone at the academy drink out of the goblets, I suspected that he was having them drink the Kool-Aid but I wasn't sure if the show would be willing to kill off the Weird sisters (because really, we know the rest of the students and coven are expendable, character-wise). Good to see Blackwood was a misogynist to the end, calling Sabrina a whore for no other reason than to be a misogynistic asshole. And of course he continues to be a manipulative dick to his own daughter. Thank goodness Prudence FINALLY realized just how horrible he was and stopped being loyal to him.
I liked when Sabrina asked Lilith why she did the Dark Lord's bidding because I felt like she was truly trying to understand. Lilith was surprisingly candid. But I didn't like that when Lilith said that it was all she had ever known, Sabrina accused her of being weak. Let's not victim blame anyone who's been in an abusive relationship, Sabrina. And this isn't just your average run of the mill abusive relationship either - it's with an all powerful (fake) god. How would Lilith ever escape him when he could find her anywhere?
I did like that when the Dark Lord said he had waited for a consort, Sabrina suggested Lilith. Lilith looked pleasantly surprised that Sabrina tried to give her what she wanted and then quickly stung when the Dark Lord said that Lilith knew her place as his servant.
I was confused as to why Melvin was still being so obedient to Blackwood, especially since he was one of the people who Sabrina brought back to life and he seemed interested when Sabrina talked to him about her father's teachings. I guess he was one of those people who just went along instead of making waves.
Ha, loved the Bianco Del Rio shout out! And as if that weren't enough, Phantom of the Opera! Thank you, show. You know how to make me laugh and hit my pop culture faves.
Lilith putting on the crown reminded me of Ursula putting on King Triton's crown. I'm glad she managed to resist cackling evilly. I was surprised that she gave Sabrina her with powers back.
I'm glad that everything is good between Harvey, Roz, Theo, and Sabrina now so they can be the new Scooby gang.
Or at least pay Bianca Del Rio some royalties!
The show already got renewed for S2 back in December. S2 will be 16 episodes, split into two parts.
Netflix's original order for the show was for one season with 20 episodes. The first part of the season (episodes 1-10) was released first, then the Christmas episode, and then the back nine (the ones that were released a few weeks ago), all of which are considered S1.
Because both S1 and S2 are each split into two parts, some articles initially erroneously reported that the show had been renewed for S3 and S4.
