Chapter five – Dreams in a Witch House: A mysterious demon wreaks havoc on Spellman Mortuary. Sabrina goes rogue and puts her own powers to the test.
Kiernan Shipka…Sabrina Spellman
Ross Lynch…Harvey Kinkle
Lucy Davis…Hilda Spellman
Miranda Otto…Zelda Spellman
Chance Perdomo…Ambrose Spellman
Michelle Gomez…Mary Wardwell
Jaz Sinclair…Rosalind Walker
Tati Gabrielle…Prudence Night
Richard Coyle…Father Faustus Blackwood
Justin Dobies…Tommy Kinkle
Gavin Leatherwood…Nicholas Scratch
I’m changing the format slightly for this episode as both Zelda and Hilda are my favourite characters in chapter five.
Hilda reading a smutty romance at the start of the episode is what won her best character of the episode. The way she says “saucy” cracks me up.
It’s so cute when she’s excited about a man liking her in the nightmare. It makes me a bit sad because it’s not real and is happening to torment her, but it’s fine because she meets Dr Cerberus soon and they are freaking cute.
Zelda is an absolute savage in this episode, obviously is the sleep demon who’s made her that way, but I kinda love it. The way she says “vile” when Hilda asks her what she thinks of a cardigan is hilarious. She’s so nonchalant sitting there eating chocolates. God, I love Zelda.
The dream sequences are completely messed up, but in the best way possible. This episode is quite disturbing but it’s quite interesting to see the deepest fears of the Spellmans.
Best quotes and one liners
HILDA: Witches couldn’t solve it, but a half-witch could. Oh… Oh, that’s marvellous, isn’t it Zelds?
ZELDA: Yes, it’s divine that Sabrina’s duality almost got us killed.
ZELDA: What about that nice, handsome warlock, Nicholas Scratch?
Final thoughts and fun facts
I remember being so confused when I watched this episode for the first time. I didn’t realise then that this was a bit of a filler episode, which surprised me because shows don’t do that anymore.
The fact that Sabrina’s nightmare was Harvey asking her to marry him is hilarious in hindsight. I know the idea of marrying him isn’t the point of the nightmare, it’s that he doesn’t accept her for who she is. But I prefer to think that it is.
The aperture effect they use to film this show is genius because it really adds to the unease. But imagine the effect it would have had if it was just used in this episode. It would really sell the whole nightmare feeling. I’m glad they use it for every episode though, I love it.
