Sabrina Takes a Step Back To Help Her Friends and Family in ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Part 3, Episode 6 Recap
Spoilers through Episode 6 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ahead.
In the last episode, Sabrina and Nick were at a dramatic end, Hilda’s spider-affliction was getting worse, and the hedge witches had just shown up. You’d think that things were heading further into high gear, but Episode 6 takes a little bit of a break from the action. It’s definitely the calm before the storm, but makes it a little hard to get through.
Things are not resolved with Nick and Sabrina, of course
Ambrose discovered that Nick’s blood was full of a sludge substance leftover from Satan being in his body. Because of this, it was causing Nick to act impulsive, aggressive, and say some very hurtful things to Sabrina. However, the end of the last episode did leave things on more final note between them. Even though he apologized, they’re not together, which leaves matters pretty prickly between them.
Prudence picks up on this and points out that Nick never thanked Sabrina, which is something she hadn’t noticed up until that point. Later in the episode, it all comes crashing down on Sabrina, and she puts her foot down with Nick. He gives her attitude all episode, even viciously calling out Caliban hanging around Sabrina. Of course, that’s all in a way to help Roz (and possibly get Sabrina on Caliban’s good side), but Sabrina points out that Nick doesn’t really have a right to be mad. She calls him out for saying she lied when she didn’t. And then hits with a low blow when she mentions that Nick lied to her constantly when he wasn’t cheating on her.
This last outburst seems to strike Nick with the truth, and he’s at a loss for words. Caliban, on the other hand, thinks it’s hot as hell.
Drama arises when they try to help Roz
Speaking of Caliban, he just waltzes right into Harvey’s garage, offering help to Roz who is still solid as stone. For anyone else, the help would be greatly appreciated, however that is not the case here, for obvious reasons.
Regardless of his ulterior motives, he introduces the Pygmalion spell to the group, and Sabrina decides it’s worth a shot. Pygmalion is a Greek myth, but also the name of the book My Fair Lady was based on. The original myth gets Sabrina a little worked up, and Caliban actually shows he might care for her. As much as the Prince of Hell can care for someone, that is. It is hard to keep a clear head when faced with someone who looks and sounds like Thor, but Sabrina’s doing a pretty good job of it. When things get a little too chummy between Harvey and Sabrina, you can see why. Which Caliban also calls out.
The hedge witches used their power to flow through Sabrina to coerce Circe into bringing Roz, Dorcas, and the jocks back at the Carnival. Robbin proved that he’s on the Fright Club’s side, not the pagans,’ which is great for his budding romance with Theo.
Zelda and Hilda are gone, but for good?
Zelda and Mambo Marie clash heads in regards to the practices they do, but Prudence stands by her decision to ask Mambo Marie to come. In the end of this episode, the voodoo priestess is talking sweetly to the twins, and Prudence reveals she hopes she can undo their brainwashing.
There were two major deaths in this episode, despite it not having a lot of action or high stakes. Zelda was forced to kill Hilda, because of her spider-ways, which had her kill a Serpent and possibly do the same to Dr. Cee. However, she’s buried in the plot of land that was able to bring her back countless times before.
But we don’t know if she’s 100 percent back yet, because it ended with Zelda’s death. Father Blackwood/Lucifer convinced Ms. Wardwell that the Spellman’s are all witches and the reason behind Adam’s disappearance. She shoots Zelda in a rage, and it’ll be interesting to see how (or if) they’ll bring her back next episode.
Right before that shot, Sabrina was doing an untethering spell with a candle for Nick. But Salem, the wise black cat, suggests adding Harvey. Sabrina begrudgingly agrees. There’s going to be more than just lovers’ heartbreak next time. Not to mention the Old Ones and Lucifer are still on the loose.
