On Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 5, the three realms – the Celestial Real, the Mortal Realm, and the Infernal Realm – are on a collision course with each other. 

And it’s all because of the Sabrinas.

The series has warned multiple times about the unknown dangers of two Sabrinas existing at the same time, and finally, the danger presented itself in the form of th fifth eldritch terror. 

However, when the episode kicks off, Sabrina and Roz are dealing with very mortal problems as newly elected student council co-presidents. 

Sabrina also learns that Nick Scratch has transferred to Baxter High in hopes of showing her just how serious he is about making a relationship work this time around. 

He confronts Sabrina after she’s been avoiding him since he professed his true feelings for her on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 4, but Sabrina has her reasons – she was hurt by Nick’s actions on season 3. He explains that he could never fully commit because he didn’t spend time in her world, but transferring to her school will allow him to do that. 

Sabrina informs him that she simply needs time, and Nick informs her that he’s willing to wait. 

I know Nick did some pretty horrible things (sex addict, anyone?), but how can you not love him? And he seems to be genuine about his desire to make things work this time around. 

Ambrose and Prudence direct their focus to questioning Faustus Blackwood’s severed head about the upcoming terrors. 

As expected, he’s not interested in sharing his vast amount of knowledge with his “enemies.”

Hilda grows concerned over Lilith, who hasn’t left her room with baby Adam for days. Her concern intensifies when she realizes Lilith’s plan is to stay cooped up in the room until Adam’s 16th birthday when he’s old enough to challenge and defeat his father for the throne. 

She already waited a millennia, what’s another 16 years, right? You have to admire her patience.

Over in the Infernal Realm, Sabrina Morningstar and Lucifer have returned from their tour of the nine circles of Hell and she realizes changes must be made because the current system just isn’t working. She decides to implement a new rule that would release souls for lame sins. A true Queen. 

Everything comes to a screeching halt, however, when an Earthquake is seemingly felt in Greendale. 

Billy and Lizzie, who were enjoying milkshakes at Cerberus Books, end up in Hell along with the “Welcome to Greendale” sign, while other monuments and stalagmites from Hell end up in Greendale. 

Ambrose explains that the occurrence is almost “geological” and “tectonic.”

When Harvey finds a demon rock in his room, Ambrose and Sabrina realize that the Infernal realm is pushing into the Mortal realm. 

Ambrose explains that it’s because two Sabrinas should not exist simultaneously. With both the realms at stake, Sabrina and Ambrose realize it’s time to come clean to Aunt Zee, but the crew from Hell beats her to it. 

And it’s safe to say, Aunt Zelda isn’t pleased with her niece in the slightest. Even Ambrose bears to brunt of Zelda’s wrath for knowing and helping Sabrina cover it up.

Meanwhile, Theo encounters a hobgoblin named Moth, one of Robin’s (Puck’s) friends, in their room in the middle of the night. 

Moth spells Theo back to sleep, but the next day, Robin confesses that it wasn’t a dream. He informs Theo that the friend came to warn him that bad things are coming and to convince him to leave the Mortal Realm for the Fay Realm.

He suggests that Theo come with him and leave this mess behind, but after much thought, Theo says he cannot, which prompts Robin to say that he’s also staying. 

Back at the Academy, Nick confesses his feelings to Sabrina (again), but since he isn’t privy to the fact that there are two of them, he’s actually pouring his heart out to Sabrina Morningstar. 

She’s much more enchanted by Nick’s apology than mortal realm Sabrina and how can you not be? He says he can’t undo the biggest mistake of his life!

“I’m the other Sabrina, you’ll find out soon enough,” she tells him. 

Prudence fetches Roz for a special mission related to the eldritch terrors. Can you believe Roz actually attempted to use the “I have to go to school” excuse? Girl, the world’s are colliding, I think you can skip a day of classes. 

Instead, they pick up Faustus’ maggot-infested corpse and bring it to the Academy, where Prudence begins to torture it since he can still feel pain despite being severed from his body. 

As the coven + the crew from Hell brainstorm a way to save the realms from crushing each other, Nick provides an idea, one that’s crazier than two Sabrinas. 

Since both realms have magnetic fields, he suggests reversing the polarities so that they repel each other. Or, as Hilda says, take a playbook from the Sabrinas and “Parent Trap” the realms. The episode featured plenty of fun Disney references that were likely interjected to lighten the mood.

They begin the spell of unmeshing the realms and it’s working… that is until Ambrose realizes that they realms are like conjoined twins. Going any further would mean that they could destroy both in the process.

He orders everyone to stop the spell at once. 

Soon after, it begins hailing pearls outside, which reveals that Heaven is being dragged into this whole mess and falling on top of both the realms. 

An angel of the highest celestial order, Metatron, arrives at the Academy to help restore order in the chaotic mess. 

The angel bears a solution to save the cosmos: one Sabrina must die. Yeah, that was the solution everyone was kind of avoiding. 

When they explain that they can’t choose, the angel provides an alternative solution: the two Sabrinas can merge into one single entity. 

No one is impressed with that option either as the Sabrinas have two distinct souls. It’s unclear what a merge would mean for them. 

Still, Sabrina and Sabrina Morningstar figure that since they started this mess, they have to end it by taking responsibility for their actions. 

They agree to the merge and ask the angel for one final day to wrap things up. They get six hours. Sabrina Morningstar decides to spend some time with Sabrina’s friends. They play hooky and reunite the Fright Club for a rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”

Meanwhile, Sabrina takes care of matters of the heart by forgiving Nick and hooking up with him before it’s too late.

Hilda informs Lilith that Lucifer is at the Academy and tries to help her hide, but Lilith admits that she “can’t keep running.” 

Hilda hides baby Adam while Lilith confront Lucifer. He informs her that he will be taking his son back to Hell. She hopes that telling him about Caliban’s plans to have her killed with help her argument, but Lucifer could care less because he doesn’t care about her.

Moth pays Theo a visit and informs him that he’s ruining Robin’s life. “He belongs with us,” she tells him before explaining that staying in the Mortal realm weakens him.

Theo realizes the selfishness of his actions and tells Robin to go. It’s a heartbreaking goodbye, but one they both know is necessary. 

Ambrose fixes a telescope for Sabrina’s classmate and when he looks through it, realizes that things are much bleaker than they initially imagined. 

He interrupts the merge of the Sabrinas just in time to inform them that three new realms are approaching in a collision course with their own. 

These are the next eldritch terror – the Cosmic – which promises their extinction.

Lucifer deems it strange that their “celestial friend” didn’t know about the threat and realizes that the angel did, but kept it from them.

The angel confesses that if she had been honest, they would never agree to a merge as it only had about a 56% success rate. 

Both the coven and the crew from Hell come together to snap her neck and put an end to the merge.

Ambrose refers to Harvey Kinkle’s sketch to explain that the three duplicate realms are approaching their own and they are being pulled by the existence of two Sabrinas. 

He suggests that they could avoid the crash by sending one of the Sabrinas to the eldrtich cosmos as a sacrifice. 

Which Sabrina will go? The two agree to make a decision using rock, paper, scissors. 

Sabrina takes Sabrina Morningstar, who walks through a wormhole in the mirror. She then comes out on the other side in a room that looks just like Sabrina’s.  

The major difference? Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda are played by Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick aka the original Aunties from Sabrina the Teenage Witch! The parallel universe even has a studio audience laugh track.

Honestly, this is the best cameo ever and such a sweet nod to fans of both shows! 

The fun is short-lived because back in the mortal realm, Lilith invites Lucifer to her room for a feast. She reminds him he once cooked her a special meal in which he served her beloved Adam’s head on a platter. 

The blood in the room insinuates that she “freed” her son by murdering him and serving him on a platter. Since the babe isn’t shown, my guess is that Lilith faked it to save Adam from his father. At least, I hope so.

However, Lucifer doesn’t take to her actions lightly. It seems like he can’t take what he dishes out! 

As punishment, he curses Lilith with humanity, strips her of her powers, and banishes her to remain on Earth as a mortal. 

Meanwhile, Sabrina can’t stop thinking of her twin, and when she sees a falling star, she wishes that everyone is spared from the terrors to come.

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming series “The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window.”

 

What’s It About?

The series focuses on the heartbroken lead who lives everyday the same way — staring out her window and watching life pass her by while she sips her wine. 

All of that is flipped upside down when her handsome neighbor moves in across the street and she witnesses a murder… or does she? Does someone want her to forget? Did she imagine it? Are they the hallucinations?

We’re already totally invested. 

 

Is there a Trailer?

When Does It Premiere?

The show hits Netflix on Friday, Jan. 28, 2022!

 

Is There Going to be a Second Season?

While it’s crafted as a limited-series that doesn’t necessarily mean that a second season is out of the question. After all, Big Little Lies was also a limited-series. Never say never!

5 Biggest Moments on YOU Season 3: Who Died, Who Survived, and What’s Next?

Published

on


The wait for YOU Season 3 is finally over!

On October 15, Netflix dropped the next installment of Joe Goldberg’s adventures. 

Only this time, he was joined by his partner-in-crime, Love, and their new bundle of joy, baby Henry. 

The murderous couple moved to Madre Linda for a fresh start, but despite Joe’s insistence that “everything would be different” this time around, they fell into old patterns fairly quickly and left a trail of bodies behind that would eventually lead to the demise of their fictitious happily ever after. 

You can read the spoiler-free review here! 

1. RIP to Those Who Didn’t Make It

Murder is the name of the game when it comes to Joe and Love. Their list of suspects this season included Natalia, who was the catalyst for all the disturbances in the town defined by tacky athleisure. But, let’s be honest, if it wasn’t her, it would’ve been someone else. Joe has a delusional obsession with finding “the one.”

While watching the season, there was no shortage of potential victims. Anytime the residents of Madre Lina were in a strange setting with Love or Joe, you found yourself wondering: “when are they going to die?”

Surprisingly, most of the victims belonged to Love, whose impulsiveness did no one any favors. After killing Natalie, she bludgeoned anti-vaxxer Gil and locked him up in the glass cage that they rebuilt in the bakery’s basement (also Natalie’s final resting place). While Gil technically killed himself after learning that his wife paid to get their delinquent son into university (looking at you, Lori Loughlin), Love and Joe used it as an opportunity to frame the poor guy for Natalie’s murder and made it seem like the result of a torrid love affair. Wow, they’re good at this. I shouldn’t be this surprised, right?

Joe’s only victim was Ryan Goodwin, Marienne’s narcissistic and druggie ex… but he kind of deserved it.

2. Those Who (Surprisingly!) Survived

To survive a brush with Love and Joe at their worst is, well, an incredible feat. Not many can live to tell that story, but influencer Sherry, her buff husband, Cary, and Theo, an impressionable college student with a terrible relationship with his father, Matthew, also Natalie’s husband, all did. 

Sherry and Cary suggested that Love and Joe try to “hack their love life” by sleeping with them. Unfortunately, Love’s jealousy issues took over, and when she accidentally blurted out that she killed Natalie for Joe, Sherry and Cary didn’t stand a chance. It was touch-and-go-there for a bit as Cary accidentally shot and grazed Sherry’s ear, while she intentionally shot him in the leg. Eventually, she found a key and managed to get them out of the cage alive and well. And in true Sherry fashion, she and Cary ended up turning their story into a best-selling book. 

Theo was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. He found Sherry and Cary in the cage just as Love arrived at the bakery. He tried to convince her that he didn’t believe what they said about her, but she knocked him out and pushed him down the stairs. However, when Joe went to clean up her mess, he realized that Theo was still alive. Since he promised not to say a word, Joe drove him to a hospital and let the poor kid live. His only sin was falling in love with the wrong woman! 

Marienne also survived, but it was also touch-and-go for her. Love had it out for her, and the only reason she made it out of the Quinn-Goldberg household in one piece was because of her sweet daughter. Fly free, Marienne!

3. Joe and Love’s lovers

Joe and Love may have been on the same team, but they were simply trying to make a failed marriage work. Love’s insecurities got the best of her, and when she found out about Joe’s brief rendezvous with Natalie, she felt “wanted” by college kid Theo. She loved that he saw her and craved that attention, which she wasn’t getting from Joe. It was a disturbing relationship, and one she tried to put an end to many times, before convincing Joe that she needed to seduce Theo in order to find out what evidence Matthew had against them. 

Meanwhile, Joe developed an obsession with Marienne, a whip-smart library manager who gave him a job and slowly began to fall for him. He saw a light in Marienne, who, as a Black woman, was failed by the system multiple times, and wanted to get custody of her daughter from her abusive ex and local news anchor, Ryan Goodwin. While Marienne’s feelings towards Joe were reciprocated, they were a byproduct of his manipulative charm. Joe knows how to prey on a vulnerable woman to get what he wants. 

Thankfully, as mentioned above, both of Theo and Marienne survived, which is a new one for romantic partners in the series. Though, the season did end with Joe going to the depths of the Earth to find Marienne, so maybe she isn’t in the clear after all!

4. Survival of the Fittest

One could argue that Joe and Love were each other’s victims. Their relationship was toxic for the get-go, and no amount of marriage counseling was going to fix it. If Love hadn’t announced her pregnancy at the end of season 2, Joe would’ve killed her on the spot. They were both alive because of Henry, and thus, thought that staying together for the child was going to somehow make all of their problems disappear. 

But it didn’t. Their resentment for each other grew as they lied and manipulated each other. They never trusted each other, and the relationship was solely codependency. I do think Love wanted to make a marriage with Joe work, but Joe, despite being a murderer himself, couldn’t see Love as anything more than a monster.

Thus, he looked for any out that he could find. When he set his sights on Marienne, he envisioned a brand new family with her and attempted to “protect her” from Love. In doing so, he was also protected himself. It definitely seemed as though Love’s murder attempt blindsided him. She admitted that she killed her first husband, James, with the same aconite used to poison Joe. 

However, Joe was always one step ahead of her because he took an adrenaline pill right before, which counteracted the poison. And he should breathe a sigh of relief because if he hadn’t, Love would’ve killed him with a butcher’s knife. 

Their relationship was survival of the fittest — be or be killed. And when she approached him, he stabbed her with a syringe full of the poison he made previously as he anticipated this very moment. 

After the poison stopped her heart, Joe cut off two of his toes (the worst part of the season, I’ll admit) and wrote a letter detailing Love’s murder-suicide. No one ever “found” Joe’s body, but since they found the toes, they assumed he died in the fire set by Quinn prior to killing herself. He made her out to be the true villain and escaped from Madre Linda unharmed… well, minus two toes.

5. Goodbye, for now, Henry

What about baby Henry? Well, he no longer has to pay for the crimes of his parents. While the fact that Joe killed Love and framed her for a murder-suicide was messed up, out of the two of them, he was clearly the more stable one. Throughout the season, Joe prioritized being a good father because he didn’t want baby Henry to end up like him. Everything he did, in a twisted way, was to secure the child’s future. 

He knew that Love would never change and needed to be stopped because she would take them both down, which would ensure that Henry would end up in the system. Since he was placed in the system after his mother abandoned him, it was Joe’s biggest fear, and a future he did not want for his son. Therefore, his choice to give up Henry to Dante and Lansing, a good couple who were trying to adopt, was the most selfless thing he’s ever done. 

Sure, it was also a bit selfish because he wanted to pursue Marienne, but still, he made the best choice for baby Henry and ensured that he would have the possibility of a good future. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters. 

YOU (L to R) PENN BADGLEY as JOE GOLDBERG in episode 307 of YOU Cr. JOHN P. FLEENOR/NETFLIX © 2021

In the End… 

After putting an end to Love — “she must be stopped” — and giving away baby Henry to Dante and Lansing, Joe threw on his invisibility cap, said adios Madre Linda, and bonjour Paris. 

Will he say “hello you” to Marienne once again? And even if he does, how will he explain all that went down? He’s good at talking his way out of things, but they also found his toes at the scene of the crime. Marienne may think she attracts toxic men, but she’s levelheaded; she knew when to get out, so she’d never fall for  or believe anything he said. 

With a fourth season of YOU secured at Netflix already, we know that Joe will keep on keepin’ on and feeding into his delusions. Until his thirst is satiated, he’ll scour the world for Marienne. Or maybe he’ll give up and find a new obsession. 

Unfortunately, the world will never be safe if Joe is around.
