Now that we’ve gotten the necessary origin story out of the way, this week Witches of East End, ‘Today I Am a Witch’, got to get down to some actual magic. Ingrid and Freya now know the big family secret and, although they currently suck at actually being witches right now, they’re going to give it a good go nonetheless. Cue backfiring incantations!
Wendy and Joanna are at odds over whether they should teach the girls witchcraft or not and, as the show is essentially about witches, we’re not in suspense about who will win the argument. While Joanna compiles a list of potential enemies that may help to uncover the identity of their opponent (she’s done some nasty things in the past), Wendy attempts to show her nieces how to skim a stone across water with their minds. Freya doesn’t do so well, but Ingrid is a natural.
Freya isn’t good at anything really, at that includes staying faithful to her fiancé. I know this is TV land but most people would have enough self-control to stay away from their fiancé’s brother, especially when they’re as obvious and slimy as Killian. Maybe I’m meant to find him as irresistible as Freya but, with what we found out this week, I’m still team Dash. Even if the full story incriminates him just as badly, Freya’s better off keeping herself to herself for a while. With them working together, however, that’s definitely not going to happen.
Ingrid’s love life is going much better, and that probably means that Adam isn’t long for this world. Let’s face it, this show is not entirely unlike Charmed, and the normal, charming boyfriend dying at the end of the first season because of something the family did worked a treat back then. Adam is our Andy Turner, and I’m prepared to like him just so I’ll shed some real tears when he feels the effects of Ingrid’s resurrection spell consequences. Enjoy your second date, guys, it might be your last.
