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.
Stranger Things Season 4: Nancy Wheeler Owes It To Herself to Give Steve Harrington a Chance
It seems almost silly and trivial to prioritize romance when the world — specifically, Hawkins — is being taken over by a disturbed and power-hungry creature from the Upside Down, but it’s such a human emotion to value and champion love even in the darkest moments when everything looks bleak.
As Stranger Things continues to prove, love, in all of its shapes and forms, trumps hate every time. And Nancy and Steve? They love each other. They might not know it yet or simply aren’t ready to admit it, but there are some strong feelings there that deserve to be explored, especially in light of a possible end-of-the-world scenario. Ask yourself, if not now, when?
Stranger Things Season 4, through all of its darkness, found a light with Nancy and Steve. Hero hair aside, Steve underwent massive character growth from your stereotypical and shallow jock to a father figure, caretaker, and most importantly, a man who knows what he wants. Steve and his voluminous Herbal Essence commercial hair ran towards danger countless times for the greater good and for his friends. Steve’s emotional glow-up wasn’t lost on Nancy either, as she took notice on several occasions, and at times, found herself taken aback by his newfound maturity. As some people pointed out on Twitter, Season 4 Steve Harrington just hits different.
Yes, he’s portrayed as a ladies’ man, but on the inside, Steve is a softie with a mad crush and a dream of having a real relationship with the right one. He acknowledged the progress he’s made since season 1 and how much he’s grown in the swoon-worthy speech to Nancy that further drove him into heartthrob territory with audiences while proving to Nancy that those butterflies she’s been feeling whenever he looks at her aren’t just a result of an unexpected trip to the Upside Down. Steve Harrington told Nancy flat-out that he was to have six kids (six nuggets, to be exact) with her, and if that didn’t convince her that he’s top-notch boyfriend material, I honestly don’t know what would.
I wouldn’t have blamed them if they took advantage of the moment and used the “apocalypse” excuse to sneak in a passionate kiss, but that’s the other point — despite his desires, Steve never made a move on Nancy because he respects her and their friendship. He knows that she’s with Jonathan, and he’s not going to cross that line even if they might never get a chance to pursue these feelings again. At least not without Nancy making a move and giving him the go-ahead.
Deep down, Steve cares about Nancy as a friend. He proved it not just with words, but also with his actions as he stood by her when Vecna put her in a trance. He could’ve left the Upside Down at any point to save himself, but he would never leave her there. And, in turn, Nancy proved that she would risk it all for Steve when she jumped into the water and swam into the Upside Down to go after him. She’s always had a soft spot for Steve, but now that he’s become a man worthy of her, there’s no denying the attraction.
There’s also a love and understanding between them that has provided for a solid foundation that would be helpful if they were to pursue a romantic relationship.
Stranger Things benefited from the love triangle this season, in particular, as it kept tensions high and provided a personal escape for the characters, but it also cannot be dragged into the final battle. The bottom line is that Nancy and Jonathan can’t string each other along as Steve continues to pine Nancy — it’s not fair to any of their very deserving characters.
One might argue that Jonathan has always been the underdog so he deserves the girl, but even that’s starting to change as Steve grows into his own and figures out his real connection to Nancy that’s only intensifying as time goes on.
This brings me to Jonathan. I know it isn’t entirely his fault that he wasn’t by Nancy’s side when the fight against Vecna began, but it speaks volumes that he was on the other side of the world. The reason Mike was with Eleven when it mattered is because he willingly made the trip to go see her. Neither Nancy nor Jonathan chose to visit each other despite being apart for so long. The chance was there, but they both decided to stay put and deflect.
There was a time when Nancy and Jonathan were the right choice for each other, but there’s nothing left between them but a forced relationship that continues because it’s comfortable and safe. The spark between them barely has a pulse. When they were finally reunited at the end of the season, it didn’t seem like a romantic relationship but two friends who care about each other. And that’s the thing — they’ll likely always love each other and feel a connection through shared trauma, but they are not in love with each other anymore.
They aren’t on the same page anymore, no matter how much they hope to be. They want two different things out of life, but they’re refusing to come to terms with the fact that their paths are taking them in opposite directions. Nancy wants to excel in college and make something of herself, while Jonathan didn’t even apply. The worst part is that they both know that time is running out on their relationship, so they are avoiding the hard conversations. Neither of them has the heart to tell the other the truth.
Even if nothing happens between Nancy and Steve in the upcoming season, in the face of the unknown and a potential apocalypse, Nancy and Jonathan owe it to themselves to be honest about their feelings and go after what their hearts desire. I’m not sure what that is for Jonathan at the moment as he seems pretty lost about his future, but for Nancy, I think that definitely involves six little nuggets with Steve Harrington somewhere down the line.
Who Dies On ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4B?
Stranger Things Season 4 was quite a bloodbath as Vecna brutally claimed a handful of victims in his plan to take over Hawkins.
The body count included a handful of pivotal and core cast members that will forever leave a mark on our hearts.
Dr. Brenner – When the FBI came in guns blazing, Brenner tried his best to get El to safety. But the truth is, she wasn’t even supposed to be there. If he simply allowed her to leave when Dr. Owens insisted, she would’ve been on her way to help her friends fight Vecna. Also, there definitely wasn’t a solid contingency plan in place in the event that the FBI did find their secret hiding spot.
In his last moments, Brenner assured El that he loved her and always meant well, but it’s hard to really believe any of that when he pushed her to her limits, shamed her, treated her like nothing more than a lab rat, held her against her will (in hopes that she’d understand), and even put a dog collar on her in order to mute her powers. Brenner was definitely not a friend. And in the moment where they say goodbye, El realizes what true love is when she sees her friends sacrifice everything to come and save her. Papa never came from a place of true love — it was all self-serving and manipulation masked as love. It’s unclear if Dr. Owens survived or if the FBI took him out simply because he betrayed them. If they did, I bet they’re regretting it now.
Eddie – Eddie is a fan favorite, so his time on the series was limited considering Stranger Things has a track record of killing off the lovable, new guy. After a really metal guitar solo in the Upside Down, Eddie took one for the team and sacrificed himself to stop those bats from digging into his friends. It was a redeeming moment as Eddie proved he wasn’t a coward as he “didn’t run away” this time. I only wish he held off a little longer so El could do her thing because he could’ve been spared!
Max (kind of) – Max was marked this season, and it’s unfortunate. Everyone in that group is brave, but Max, in particular, risked it all in hopes of defeating Vecna and stopping his plan. She allowed herself to become his target — the bait that lures him while everyone works in the background to slay the monster. Eleven tried her best to help Max when she could no longer stay in the light and run from Vecna’s wrath, but it wasn’t enough. Vecna got his grip on Max before El could regain her strength. And even after she broke his hold on Max, the damage had been done as her bones snapped and her eyes were glossed over and bleeding. She died in Lucas’s arms, a hero that only a few will ever truly know about. As far as death’s go, it one was the most heartbreaking next to Eddie’s. But then, Max came back to life. Her heart stopped beating for a full minute before it restarted in what doctors call “a miracle.” We know, however, that Eleven used her powers to resuscitate Max. Unfortunately, the injuries were intense and she’s now in a coma. It’s not known when she’ll wake up, if ever… and the battle for Hawkins, and the world, inches closer. For this reason, Max stays on the list.
Jason also died in a gory scene, but honestly, there was nothing more satisfying than seeing him burn in half right after he tried to kill Lucas. The ego on that dude was next level, so he had it coming. Also RIP Chrissy, Fred, and the 22 and counting other souls that died in the mysterious and seismic earthquake that unexpectedly hit Hawkins. A natural disaster it was not! Not to mention all the Russians who fell victim to the Demogorgon and the Demodogs…. they, too, had it coming,
Fans React to Chilling Netflix Doc ‘Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey’
The latest true-crime series on Netflix that’s gripping/disturbing audiences everywhere? Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey.
The four-part series is based on the polygamous religious section known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS). It examines the rise of leader Warren Jeffs, who, at one point (prior to his arrest), had about 69 wives, some as young as 12.
If you find the synopsis disturbing, you’re pretty much on the same page as viewers who recalled feeling quite “traumatized” and “sic” after watching the show.
Here are some of the tweets and reactions about Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey:
just finished “keep sweet: pray and obey”. I don’t have the words. need everyone to try and watch this, it’s so sickening.

I thought the new season of Stranger things season was dark… then I watched Keep Sweet; Pray and Obey and it made me physically nauseous lol. I hope Warren Jeffs gets beat up in prison every day for the rest of his life
— Brax (@byu_homer) June 9, 2022
Well, all I can say after watching that, is that the women who escaped from the FLDS and have built new lives for themselves are incredibly brave and deserve a heap of cash from all the millions held by the ‘church’. #KeepSweetPrayAndObey
— Ian McClellan (@ianmac67_SE) June 9, 2022
I nominate Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey for horror movie of the year

#keepsweetprayandobey documentary on Netflix is crazy. The things that happen in society under the name of religion and faith is just filthy.

If you told me Heaven was a ranch in Texas where I had to do chores and make lunch for a bunch of old dudes, I’d be making accommodations to reach Hell as soon as possible. #keepsweetprayandobey #keepsweet
