I think this episode does a great job uniting the mortal world and the witch world. Before this episode, the stories felt unbalanced, and IMO, the Greendale High stuff was a lot less interesting than the witch stuff. But this episode did a good job of pulling Sabrina's high school friends into the supernatural part of the story.

I'm torn. I love me my Michelle Gomez being deliciously evil, but I'd also love if gay guys wouldn't be killed in shows all the time. Plus it would have been nice for Susie to have an uncle who can understand her in some way.

Also seemed kinda unnecessary from a character standpoint to kill him. Why would Probablylilith waste time and energy on going back and killing him?

Ah hah, a prophecy! I knew it.

Probably something about a half witch, half mortal who will have the power to cast out demons and bring about the end of the world, yada, yada, yada.

I got the feeling that it was so that Michelle Gomez could further isolate and torture Sabrina. Sabrina breaks the rules and uses some big magic to a save, but instead of feeling like a triumphant badass, she feels like a defeated failure. And instead of confiding in her Aunts or Ambrose, she's run back to the warm embrace and guidance of Michelle Gomez. It strengthens the trust Sabrina has for Michelle Gomez and sets up for her come running to her in the future if some other magical problems comes up.

 

On another note, that whole thing about Sabrina's dad creating the exorcism rite is probably a lie right? So did it come from Satan himself? Or did Sabrina's father know about the prophesy and that his daughter The Chosen One would have to perform the rite and wrote it for real?

Lilith killing Jessie made Sabrina feel like a failure with the added bonus of making Sabrina go to her for advice. Sabrina now trusts her. She's doing a better job getting Sabrina under the Dark Lords spell by making her think she's making these choices. That's why she's the mother of demons. 

I have to agree with most that Sabrina's human life is boring and I'd rather spend more time at Goatwarts with the witches and warlocks. 

I'm confused does Sabrina only go to school there on the weekends? Do they have classes 7 days a week? Or is it some magic spell where she repeats her week twice once at human school and once at witch school? I guess since it's the church of night they can have classes at night.

During the exorcism, when Sabrina called on Lilith to intervene, wouldn't that have had some effect on Ms. Wardwell if she were really Lilith? 

It would probably have a positive effect since Lilith asking all those famous Witches to help her would probably get a better response than some unknown half-witch asking for their help.

I'm not sure what it says about me that I was kinda digging Jesse Putnam's look in the scene just before he's killed, but there you go.

WTF? Roz's father told her that her grandmother went blind because she didn't have enough faith? Yowza.

Sometimes the dialogue on this show is so stupid. Sabrina just interrupted and sidetracked class to discuss the Apophis demon and was told by Faustus that witches can't perform exorcisms, so Nick approaches her after class and asks if she wants to "talk about whatever's on her mind?" I guess I could give the writers the benefit of the doubt and assume that they're trying to make Nick look like a moron. When he said he was down with sharing, I actually said UGH out loud.

More ridiculous writing: Aunt Zelda says, "I refuse to put the safety of my niece in the hands of a spinster schoolmarm and a British batwit. They'll get her killed." That makes no sense because at the time that she said it, she had already let Sabrina leave the house with Hilda and Miss Wardwell to perform the exorcism so she had in fact explicitly put Sabrina's safety in their hands.

How is Sabrina managing to attend classes at both Baxter and the Academy? Did she get Hermione's time turner?

I already didn't trust faux Miss Wardwell, partly because I know that she hasn't told Sabrina the full truth about who she is and killing the real Miss Wardwell. That alone made me think she was still hiding a lot of things from her. But seeing her kill Uncle Jesse (which kept making me think of the Dukes of Hazzard) and going on about the Dark Lord's grand design, I was like HA, I KNEW IT!

The previous episode reminded me of Buffy but this one with prophecies and talk of the apocalypse did too!

I liked that this episode brought together Sabrina's mortal world with her witch world. She's inching closer to assembling a Scooby gang.

It's really odd. Unless they skipped ahead to Friday/Saturday (whenever Sabrina goes to the Academy, since last episode specified she was going to be gone for three days but a weekend is only two), then Sabrina randomly went to the Academy on a Tuesday. What, does she attend classes after school or something? I guess that makes a bit more sense than Sabrina just attending classes on the weekends, if she had to attend at night as well. 

I thought this was marginally better than the last episode. I did like them integrating the mortal and witch worlds better. I did kind of enjoy the exorcism scene.

I am definitely aware that she was playing Sabrina from the start. Using her dead father as a means to get Sabrina to trust her was never going to end well. She seemed to realize, once she was caught, that she needed another way in with Sabrina and getting Sabrina to trust her as a witch was the way to do that.

No surprise that Wardwell is playing everybody, especially Sabrina, and little questioning occurs. If Sabrina had pressed harder, she may have seen the holes in Wardwell's lies. Zelda seems to be less than trusting, so maybe she can catch on to the lies. Seeing as it took me roughly the first half of the season to even like Zelda, I'm hoping this is the start of her redemption.

So I´m still wondering what the show is supposed to be about. The last two episodes were a lot like Buffy´s ordinary monster of the week episodes, but without most of the humor and cast chemistry. The first four were more serialized but with no real threat. Which I think is the biggest weak of the show so far. First they introduce all these big conflicts and then nothing. Sabrina refuses to sign the Book of Damned and the next day the life goes as usual. Hilda is excomunicated from the Church of Damned  and next day the life goes as usual. I´m glad we finally see Sabrina being more proactive and finding solutions on her own, but that´s it. Both Harvey and the warlock boy are boring as hell, her friends side stories formulaic and flat, and the worldbuilding terrible. Even the sitcomy Other Realm from STTW seemed to have more clearly definied rules and logic than the Church of Damned.

People said the show gets better after the few first episodes so I continue watching, but so far I still wait for something to really grab me on and force to binge the rest.

I did chuckle when Sabrina called upon Anne Boleyn's help 

Somewhere, Thomas Cromwell is "told you so-ing"all over the afterlife. 

The exorcism scene was pretty cool, and I enjoyed the The Exorcist homage when they walked up to the house to get their exorcism started. That was good, and I appreciate that they're combining the magical and human world more now, and drawing the two parts of the cast more into the same plots. The magical world and dark Hogwarts is defiantly the most interesting part of the show, but taking the mortal world out kind of hurts the whole premise of the show, with Sabrina being a moral/witch hybrid. 

So Hilda decides the best way to help Ambrose, who is getting all depressed with his century long house arrest, is to give the guy he likes a love spell. Oh yeah, thats certainly going to go well, and not create any problems whatsoever. I still want to know what exactly Ambrose did to get him locked up in the house for so long. What do you do to piss off your demon worshiping magic coven that much? Accidentally say "bless you" when someone sneezes? Try to hit on the Dark Ones favorite demon offspring? 

 Not Miss Wardwell is so full of crap, I dont buy anything she says. The witchercism was certainly created by the Dark Lord as part of his plan, which has something to do with a prophesy, which has something to do with Sabrina and her parents.

Susie's got a lot of nerve to be all judgmental about the hospital her dad wants to send Jessie, given that she's the one who literally tied him to a bed and then locked the door to his room because his mere existance made Roz uncomfortable. "I want make sure that it's okay." Even if all it has is Jessie not trapped and helpless to save himself in the event of a fire, it's a step up from your house. Plus, who watches that poor man during the day, when Susie is at school and her dad's at work? What happens if he has to go to the bathroom? The hospital would have doctors, nurses, orderlies, therapists, medication, plans for treatment, regulations about patient care, regulations about patient rights, inspectors who come by and make sure that, you know, for example, patients aren't tied to beds and locked in rooms 24 hours a day, with only an untrained teenager to check up on him at meal times.
