Good Witch “Together We Stand” Review (Season 1, Episode 7)

Good Witch Together We Stand Episode 7 30

“Oh the weather outside is frightful!”

That is certainly the case for the residents of the quaint town of Middleton in the Hallmark Channel series Good Witch as they are hit with the worst snowstorm of the season, impacting all of the characters in various ways, trapping them in the library, Grey House and the Café Bistro.

At Grey House, Cassie and Sam are dealing with the complications of Bryan’s mysterious illness that fell the man shortly after they returned to town because of his wife Eve actually not feeling well. The fact that she is quite pregnant would give anyone pause, but Bryan’s condition is actually very fretful even for the well-trained doctor.

At the Bistro, Abigail is actually pulling a “Nightingale” duty (pun intended, sort of) of her own for rival Stephanie, helping the café’s owner after her inadvertent slip and fall. Perhaps we have all misjudged Abigail’s intentions, but then again, we shouldn’t underestimate someone who freely admits that she is “uncontrollable”.

Thankfully, Brandon showed up, albeit a bit disoriented, at the Café where Abigail is actually able to treat his head wound and make sure that he doesn’t fall asleep because he, more than likely, sustained a concussion in that car accident.

As the situation with Bryan worsens at Grey House, the teens stuck at the library – surly Nick, concerned Grace and anxious Anthony – are having their own set of problems, although not as serious. They are having their own pseudo-Lord-of-the-Flies moment over being stuck there with little to no food as well as no access to the internet. What would those kids do – or more specifically Nick – if he lived in any time before the creation of the internet when you actually read books at the library, sigh?!

The storm eventually lessens, allowing an ambulance to show up at Grey’s House just in time, stopping Sam from having to operate on Bryan in the house instead of the hospital; Stephanie and Brandon making their way to the hospital as well with Abigail by their side and Derek being able to “rescue” the kids at the library.

But while the snow storm may have moved on, the town of Middleton is being visited by yet another storm: that of Linda, Sam’s ex-wife and Nick’s mom, who claimed that she couldn’t come for a visit. It would seem that she could make the visit and that will, assuredly, create a whole different kind of storm that the little town might not be prepared for.

Let’s also take a moment to talk about Ryan and this new developer he is working with: Ben Jones and his newly revealed daughter Frankie who is Ryan’s new “partner”. That’s going to make things a little uncomfortable for Ryan. And, how about finally getting to see Martha’s husband, Tom? I know some fans were thinking that he would never be seen, but there he was right by his wife’s side during the storm while the mayor of nearby Blairsville, Darryl Blankenship, nearly takes her spotlight away.
