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!
