Best Character of the Episode
Ambrose is in this episode quite a bit and I really, really love him. I feel like he is such an underrated character. His relationship with Sabrina is super cute as he’s quite protective of her and I love it.
Best Supporting/Obscure Character
I mean it has to be Prudence right? She’s absolutely iconic in this episode and I can’t wait to see more of her in the later episodes.
Zelda killing Hilda with a hammer will always be funny, well unless you don’t know about the Cain pit. The same thing is mentioned in the original Sabrina series which is obviously a lot lighter so I love how they did it here.
Sabrina and the Weird Sisters working together to teach the football players a lesson will always be iconic. You really start to see Sabrina’s darker side and I love it. Obviously, she isn’t a bad person so she tells them to stop before it goes too far. But the Weird Sisters are twisted in the best way possible.
HILDA: He’s a bit dramatic, isn’t he? Father Blackwood?
Understatement of the century. He is absolutely the most dramatic character in the entire series and honestly, a lot of bad things wouldn’t have happened if he did exist. Big hate for Father Blackwood.
AMBROSE: Where’s Aunt Hilda?
ZELDA: She annoyed me, so I killed her and buried her in the yard.
I love how blasé Zelda is about this and how Ambrose doesn’t even question it.
FATHER BLACKWOOD: While the blood moon still shines, you must sign the Book of the Beast.
SABRINA: I will not. There is another path for me, just as there was for my father and mother. A third way. And even if there isn’t, my name is Sabrina Spellman, and I will not sign it away!
The delivery of this line from Kiernan is perfect. I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t sure I would like Kiernan as I watched Sabrina growing up and I’m named after Melissa Joan Hart so I have a special connection with it. But I actually love her Sabrina so much and I prefer Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
With the Halloween party, there are a lot of options to choose from, but the moment when Sabrina appears on the stairs wearing her mom’s wedding dress is actually quite emotional. So I have to choose the wedding dress, especially when it turns black when Sabrina arrives at her dark baptism.
Best Musical Moment
I’m going to include a clip of the moment as it’s really fun and me just talking about it won’t do it justice.
