Plus, Joanna comes face to face with her shifter enemy — well, one of them anyway!
Fate finally reared its ugly head on Witches of East End‘s Oct. 27 episode, claiming the victim of Ingrid’s (Rachel Boston) resurrection spell. But perhaps the most tragic part of all: It was exactly who we all thought it was going to be, even if the episode did pull a bit of a bait and switch at the last minute.
Worried that Adam (Jason George) would pay the penalty for her witchy crimes, Ingrid ended their dinner date before they even started eating. After all, if she didn’t let herself love him, he couldn’t be the loved one she would lose. This plan seemed to work, until a post-date stroll with Barb (Kellee Stewart) ended with Ingrid having to rush her to hospital. At this point, Ingrid was sure that either Barb or the baby — or both — would end up dying, but alas, they were both spared.
Adam came to the hospital to check on Ingrid, and the moment she gave into her feelings for him… boom! Barb and the baby were fine, and Adam was bleeding out on the pavement. Even if we all figured Adam would die as a result of Ingrid’s spell, I still watched that scene with my jaw on the floor. I can’t wait to see what this loss will do to Ingrid.
Meanwhile, Joanna (Julia Ormond) attempted to get one step ahead of the shifter by forcing a vision at the site of Bill Thatcher’s murder, but when she set her plan into action, she was caught off-guard by the shifter — who turned out to be her old ‘pal’ from the 1600s.
As he died, he told her that he wasn’t the shifter who previously tried to kill her — so I guess there’s another crazy a-hole on the loose in East End. Any guesses?
Guess Who’s (Not) Coming To Dinner?
Per the request of her future monster-in-law, Freya (Jenna Dewan Tatum) used a spell to bring Dash (Eric Winter) and Killian (Daniel di Tomasso) closer together — for dinner, at least — but after seeing Freya and Dash together, Killian decided he couldn’t handle it. You know, because Killian can barely handle getting out of bed in the morning. Why are the beautiful people always the most troubled?!
Anyway, Freya was left to have a super-awkward dinner-for-two with Penelope (Virginia Madsen), who regailed her with stories of the Gardner boys’ history. Basically, she just confirmed what we already knew about Killian: very beautiful, very troubled, very good at piano.
Wendy Gets Lucky
The only Beauchamp woman who had a relatively good night was Wendy (Mädchen Amick), who found herself in the arms of her hunky new neighbor (Freddie Prinze Jr.). By the way, in case you’re wondering where Freddie’s been hiding these past few years, I’m pretty sure he’s been locked in a gym. Oh my.
I’m a little confused as to why Wendy stole one of her neighbor’s butterflies — the “enchanted” one, of course — and injected it into Bill’s wife’s brain. What’s that crazy cat lady up to?!
HollywoodLifers, are you bummed about Adam’s death? Do you think the shifter is someone we know? And what’s really going on with Freddie Prinze Jr.’s character? Drop a comment with your thoughts!
