I couldn’t totally tell if I was being entertained by this episode. I’m gonna say no because it’s taken me a week to write this. I have to review Sabrina in stages like getting oral surgery. They root canal you- Sabrina Season Opener, They put bone and hardware up into your gums – mid-season Sabrina, and finally you get a new fake tooth and it’s over- Sabrina Season Finale.
If it weren’t the live tweet sessions with Lisa, I would’ve lost it long ago. Those banter sessions make the show pretty fun; it’s a shame that the writers and directors can’t achieve that on their very own. In that same vein, if Harvey gets to be any more boring, he’s just going to be recapping his favorite scenes from “How it’s Made” on the Science Channel. Hey Sabrina, you know what’re swell? Diving Helmets!
At least in this episode, Sabrina didn’t have to find anything. FFS, every episode has been
I miss Nick. But, Sabrina the Town. NIIIIIIIICK! Sabrina wait….
NO, I’ve to find Judas’ silver, a stop sign, and an Easter basket and have it back at the rec center by Midnight!
Meanwhile courtly intrigue, Caliban is proposing to Sabrina to be his Queen of Hell and he’ll prove he’s on the up and up by making a crappy spell to turn Roz back from stone. To do this, Harvey has to give up the thing he loves most – his 19th Century Danish Coin Collection. He actually had to kiss Roz and it would make her not want to have anything to do with him anymore. They should’ve just had Harvey try express a fully formed thought- she would’ve rolled her stone body the hell out of Greendale lickity split! The kiss didn’t work because he supposedly still loves Sabrina. Instead, they just capture Circe and she changes everyone back from stone. Oh well.
Hilda is super-gross and nearly full-on spider. She puts a glamour on and decides to hang out with Dr Cee. Unfortunately, she losses her glamour and he sees all of her spiderness. He does what any fiance would do and gets her some fast food. Why not? While he’s gone, she eats a guy who must be 90% balloon, given the blood splatter. When he does return, Hilda corners Dr Cee, has him fertilize her eggs (somehow yeech), and kills him. Hilda tells her sister to come and bring a gun and Zelda kills Hilda. Afterall, Zelda used to kill Hilda once a month; so, Zelda puts Hilda in the resurrection plot device out front and waits for Hilda’s return.
Lastly, Lilith seduces father Blackwood so that she will have a Satan baby to keep Lucifer from killing her. Why not?
This episode was not terrible, but not great. It kind of made me sad for Hilda and the actress herself because she rarely gets to show any range. In this episode, we find out that she has a broadway quality voice. Oh well, Lisa’s got the next one. Tag, you’re it!
