Henry Parrish is back! Can’t say I’m surprised, and I groaned a little at the thought that he would return all docile and asking to build a relationship with mommy and daddy–but no, he’s still EVIL! However, what did surprise me was that our beloved Irving is now working with Henry–when and how did this happen??? I hope they fill us in on this in an upcoming episode, because right now Irving’s storyline is the most interesting thing going on in the show (and it pains me to say that because you know I love Team Witness).
So what exactly is going on with Ichabod and Abbie? Well, after house shopping with no money, our charismatic duo hop on their next case: A few people die via blood boiling. Clearly it’s a wizard! Abbie, you’re very nice to try and include Katrina since she’s supposed to be a badass witch, but we’ve learned quite a few episodes ago that she needs to go back to witch bootcamp.
It turns out the culprit is another person from the past–Katrina’s family’s past, to be exact. A warlock who hid under the guise of a reverend, a former friend of Katrina’s grandma, is alive, and he wants the Grand Grimoire and a one-way ticket back to his era because he “accidentally” killed the woman he was
stalking pining after.
In a final confrontation with Katrina (who should’ve been whooping butt), he blabbers about her magical abilities and a darkness within her.
Aha! So, we are going to see an Evil Katrina.
Bad guy gets away because she couldn’t stop him, and Team Witness is left looking like “da fuq?”
Irving finishes him off in the end, but I was disappointed that we didn’t see a proper witch-wizard showdown. Until next time…
