Chapter four – Witch Academy: Sabrina takes a weekend trip; Father Blackwood poses a pivotal question; Roz and Susie stage an impromptu — and unnerving — sleepover.
Kiernan Shipka…Sabrina Spellman
Ross Lynch…Harvey Kinkle
Lucy Davis…Hilda Spellman
Chance Perdomo…Ambrose Spellman
Michelle Gomez…Mary Wardwell
Jaz Sinclair…Rosalind Walker
Tati Gabrielle…Prudence Night
Richard Coyle…Father Faustus Blackwood
Miranda Otto…Zelda Spellman
Gavin Leatherwood…Nicholas Scratch
I love Ambrose in this episode. Especially the part where he’s talking to Hilda about how much he likes Luke. He’s actually so cute and obviously, he’s very charming. There’s never enough of him in episodes if you ask me.
Best Supporting/Obscure Character
Dorcas has one line in this episode that is so hauntingly deranged I have to give her best supporting character. It’s so weird though how Abigail who plays her was not a series regular but Adeline who plays Agatha was.
I love the choir scene, mostly because it’s our introduction to Nick and oh boy do I love Nicholas Scratch.
The harrowing scenes are both very unsettling but the one where Sabrina has to look at the tree all night and a beast is imitating people she loves is something else.
SUSIE: The Fly is about body dysmorphia.
HARVEY: Isn’t it about a guy who turns into a giant fly?
I mean he isn’t wrong, but in this context, Harvey is a huge idiot. Who I don’t hate, but I don’t like him with Sabrina. Which has nothing to do with this line, but I feel like I have to say it every time I mention him.
FATHER BLACKWOOD: That won’t happen with your niece. Only the weak-willed fall prey to the Acheron’s fascinations.
The only nice thing he has ever said about Sabrina. I don’t know whether it was genuine or not, probably not.
AMBROSE: I’m not proud of it but I was arrested for trying to blow up the Vatican.
I’m not sure why I find this line so funny, he’s telling the truth. It sounds like it should be a joke though.
Final Thoughts and Fun Facts
This is actually one of the darkest episodes of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. There’s never a moment where suspense isn’t building or there’s not an uneasy feeling to a scene. Usually, there’s a bit of comic relief to ease the mood, but not in this episode.
Harvey and Sabrina were so cute in the first few episodes and to begin with I really liked them together. But then Nick comes along and suddenly I don’t care for Harvey any more.
I love how this episode sets up the next one. Although the next one is a filler, but you know what I actually love filler episodes sometimes. Shows should bring them back, people love more content.
