We finally got a glimpse at the person terrorizing the Beauchamp family… even if we still no clue who they are.

The Beauchamp ladies had a lot to learn on the Oct. 20 episode of Witches of East End. Wendy (Mädchen Amick) taught the girls what they’re truly capable of; Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) learned about her fiancé’s deep, dark secret; and I think we figured out who’s going to die as a result of Ingrid’s (Rachel Boston) resurrection spell.

Too Hot To Handle

As usual, Freya attempted to keep Killian (Daniel di Tomasso) at arm’s length; and as usual, she failed with flying colors. Having Killian as her new co-bartender certainly didn’t help her emotional struggle, though it did help her get in touch with her inner-witch. It turns out that her feelings for him trigger an intense power surge!

Then came Dash’s (Eric Winter) little bombshell: He was engaged before he met Freya, but it all fell apart when guess-who came into the picture! Dash told Freya he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Killian was planning to hit on her — so clearly, he has not been watching his own show.

(Side note: I love me some Dash, but there’s no denying the chemistry with Freya and Killian. It’s one of the consistent highlights of the show for me.)

Ingrid & Adam’s First Worst Date

Speaking of fighting feelings, Ingrid and Adam (Jason George) finally went on their first date, but it took a turn for the worst when Ingrid ‘casually’ brought up her mother’s murder trial. To be clear, there’s no casual way to bring something like that up. Adam told her she wasn’t taking the situation “seriously” enough, which was pretty much the final nail in that date’s coffin.

As if her night wasn’t rough enough already, Ingrid returned to the library, where she cast a spell to find out who would die as a result of her curse. She’s convinced it’ll be her, but the more Adam sticks around, the more I can picture a big ol’ target on his head.

That kiss we saw at the end of the episode? That was the kiss of death, my friends.

Name That Shifter

Meanwhile, Wendy convinced Joanna (Julia Ormond) to go on the offensive and stop the shifter before it strikes again. This required Joanna to make a list of her enemies, and once she factored in her past lives, the list was basically endless.

We finally got a glimpse of the man behind the shifter at the end of the episode, but since we’ve never seen him before, it’s anyone’s guess as to who he is.

Any theories, HollywoodLifers? Drop a comment below!

Ok, did anyone see tonights episode?! I maybe wrong, but did anyone see the scar on Penelope’s back when see hugged freya ( The same spot where Joanna cut Athena in the flashbacks ) Anyone have a feeling that she maybe athena reborn and not only that but Archibuld or however you spell his name is the shapeshifter?? Which also means Killian and dash would be decendents, not to mention grandfather!!!!

I love the series so far and thinking about it I’m wondering if the sister wendy can really be trusted she showed up exactly as the shifter to help as she said but everytime she gets involved something worst happens. Dash is suspicious as well, he has access to every aspect of there lives and is too intent on keeping freya away from killian whom she is drawn to.

in the pilot episode, Joanna is looking at a painting when Dash walks up behind her. Says it’s a painting of a Mr. Browning… archibald? anywho, Dash says that guy originally built Fair Haven. Joanna obviously doesn’t like the man. Also, When Wendy & Joanna are talking of possible enemies, Wendy says, you said someone bought Fair Haven maybe it’s him…to which Joanna says she tested Dash and he was merely human/mortal. I think these all connect. Possibly the shifter is this Browning guy.
