The ‘Witches’ ended their first season with two — possibly three — big deaths, and an even bigger arrival.
Freya’s (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) wedding day finally arrived on the Dec. 15 season finale of Lifetime’s Witches of East End, and the ceremony went off without a hitch! No, seriously, no one got hitched. Of course, Freya and Dash’s (Eric Winter) aborted nuptials were hardly the most surprising twist of the hour.
During one of Penelope’s (Virginia Madsen) classic kidnap-and-torture sessions, she revealed her true identity to Joanna (Julia Ormond), as well as the truth about Dash and Killian (Daniel di Tomasso). It turns out they had powers, but Penelope — excuse me, Athena — borrowed them when they were babies.
Freya also received a heartbreaking little surprise about Killian, when Victor (Joel Gretsch) told her that she had loved him once before. Possibly several times, actually. He believes Killian, just like Freya, is reborn time and again — and every time, his soul is led to hers.
Things got super-bananas when Wendy (Mädchen Amick) and Joanna killed Athena, thus awakening Dash and Killian’s powers, and restoring Freya’s. And when I say “super-bananas,” I mean “super-tragic,” because Dash ended up murdering his brother, then shipping his body out to sea!
And then there was Ingrid’s (Rachel Boston) library buddy Mike (Enver Gjokaj), who decided to crash Freya’s wedding with an unexpected date: his handgun! He demanded that Ingrid open the door to Asgard, which she did — you know, because of that gun I mentioned.
But the joke ended up being on Mike, as his body disintegrated the moment the door opened. The episode ended with Ingrid, Wendy and Joanna looking horrified, as a man entered their realm. I assume the man was Frederick, Ingrid and Freya’s long-lost brother, but I guess we’ll have to wait until 2014 to find out!
HollywoodLifers, are you fully recovered from that season finale? Do you think Killian is really dead? And who was coming out of the door at the end? Drop a comment with your reviews and thoughts on the Witches of East End finale!
