Sabrina Morningstar may have made the ultimate sacrifice to save the cosmos on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 5 when she agreed to go live in a parallel universe, but it didn’t stop the other cosmos from blowing full steam-ahead at the Mortal, Celestial, and Infernal Realms on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 6.
Ambrose suggested that it might take some time for things to adjust back to normal, but they soon realize that they have other issues as another eldrtich terror presents itself.
The latest one brings the dead back to the land of the living. One could say that zombies now exist in Greendale!
The Spellman family realizes it when Zelda’s beloved familiar, Vinegar Tom, returns. While Zelda is thrilled, Mambo Marie informs her that this signals the thinning of the fabric of life and death and means “the Returned” is upon them.
She warns them that while seeing familiar faces once thought to be gone forever may seem comforting, caution must be exercised as they are not as they seem. She suggests making the dead feel welcomed and urges against reminding them of their untimely death. Otherwise, bad things will happen.
Hilda checks in on Lilith who seems fine as she clings to baby Adam. But when Hilda mentions how quiet baby Adam has been lately, it’s evident that my assumption in the episode 5 review was wrong – she did, in fact, kill the child to spite Lucifer.
And now, Lilith seems to be going crazy as she holds a doll in his place and seems to hear the cries of the babe.
At Baxter High, Harvey, Roz and Theo get ready for band practice when they have a tense confrontation with a new band called the Stoned Philosophers.
Riverdale fans may recognize “Tobey” and his friends as Stonewall Prep’s Bret, Donna, and Joan. Yep, the same trio that went after Jughead and caused him to fake his own death! We may not have a full-on crossover, but you have to appreciate the little easter eggs.
Tobey and his friends are just as prickish as Bret and his crew, which is honestly so fitting.
Harvey, much like Jughead, refuses to back down and challenges the group to a Battle of the Bands. He decides to practice in his garage where he stumbles upon a sweet guitar and begins playing on it. (Somehow, he’s never seen this guitar before.)
His playing opens the fiery gates of Hell and revives a once-dead punk band looking to raise hell.
When Harvey’s father sees him playing the guitar, he scolds him and tells him to put it down immediately.
Harvey has a brush in with Satanic Panic lead by none other than Ross Lynch’s brother and fellow R5 member, Riker Lynch! Yet another welcome cameo! This final season is really outdoing itself!
Satanic Panic “takes out” Tobey’s band in a bloody massacre. Bret and Donna kind of had it coming.
Mambo Marie confronts the avatar of death, Lazarus, and challenges him to a game of Senet. To win, one must move all of their pawns to the end of the board to find peace in the afterlife. If Marie loses, the dead never return to the graves and both the living and dead suffer endlessly. So clearly, a lot is riding on this “friendly” board game.
Sabrina stumbles upon her late father, Edward, in Zelda’s office. Zelda prevents Sabrina from telling who she is and reminds her niece that it’s their job to “keep him comfortable.”
Despite the fact that seeing the dead rise from the grave is an omen of the terror, which ultimately brings them closer to the void (the end of all things), Zelda is blissfully happy that she’s been given a second chance to reconnect with her brother.
Lilith continues to be plagued by the sounds of a baby crying and begs Adam to forgive her.
She eventually summons Caliban and informs him that she wants to end her life. While he admits that he’d gladly help her carry out the task at hand, he can’t because she’s been cursed with immortality. She begs him to fetch her the Spear of Longinus, which will allow her to end her misery, and he obliges.
More dead show up in Greendale – Dorcas at the Academy and Mr.C’s late mother, Mrs. Kosgrove, at the bookstore.
Back at Baxter High, Harvey notices that the Stoned Philosophers dropped out of the Battle of the Bands and were replaced with Satanic Panic, a band he recognizes from the “original” battle in school that Mrs. Curtis showed them.
When they come across the new band, one of them tells Harvey to “say hello” to his old man, which causes Harvey to confront his dad about being in a bad. Mr. Kinkle admits he joined a group when he was approached “talent scout” who offered him fame for a human sacrifice… more specifically, a virgin girl.
He says it felt “like the actual devil,” which is accurate considering the scout was Lucifer himself.
He explains that while the rest of the band eagerly took the deal, he quit. And when homecoming queen Peggy Lou was found stabbed in the woods the week of the battle of the bands, he told her father that he thought the band may have played a role in her death. The next day, the band didn’t show up to school and by lunch, they were found burned to death in the woodshed where they practiced. Peggy Lou’s father confessed to burning them alive.
Meanwhile, Hilda’s meeting with Mr. C’s overbearing mother doesn’t go exactly as planned, but she tries to make the best of it.
Sabrina tries to connect with Father Spellman and tells him she’s his grown-up daughter. He denies it since his baby girl is barely two months old.
When he says he needs to connect with his wife, Sabrina informs him that she died. Then, she tells him that he’s been dead for 16 years, which brings out Edward’s ugly side as he informs her that he’s not her father because her father was a goat.
Edward goes on to say some hurtful things about Sabrina being an abomination and never wanting her because of the deal Diana made with the devil.
He tries to kill her, but Zelda steps in. Sabrina explains that maybe Edward is right because they didn’t really know each other since he passed away when she was just a baby.
At this point, all the undead spirits begin to show their ugly sides. Dorcas asks Agatha if she stabbed her and then tries to kill her in return before Prudence interrupts.
Hilda is attack by Mr. C’s mother who calls her a “whore” and tells her she’s not worthy of her son.
The solution is to keep the undead trapped until Mambo Marie beats the terror.
Harvey and the Fright Club have another run in with Satanic Panic, who reveal that they’ve captured his old man. Once they win the battle, they’ll send him to hell to take their place.
Theo summons Robin as they need him for their performance.
Sabrina pays Lucifer a visit and asks him to stop Satanic Panic, but he doesn’t have the power to do that. However, Lucifer informs her that even if he did, he wouldn’t help and promises to give them the ability to inflict hellfire if they win.
Sabrina is fed up and gathers Nick and Prudence to resurrect Peggy Lou, who also wants revenge for being killed. In her words, it’s time to fight hellfire with hellfire.
Meanwhile, Caliban brings Lilith the knife. As she’s praying to Hecate for the strength to end it, Zelda finds her and informs her that Lazarus has arrived.
The Battle of the Bands begins and it’s as silly as it is incredible. Both bands do a pretty impeccable job. Obviously, the Fright Club’s “Time Warp” being the clear winner.
But then, Dark Mothers enters the battle – with Sabrina taking charge and mesmerizing the crowd before brining out the bloodied prom queen who unleashes her wrath on Satanic Panic and sends them back to hell where they belong.
Harvey’s father is freed and Nick erases his memory so it will be nothing more than a nightmare.
Lilith begs Lazarus to bring back her son, but since she’s unable to produce a body, he refuses.
When he wins the Senet game and declares the living and dead forevermore intertwined in their suffering, Lilith stabs him in the back.
Mambo Marie is in disbelief since Lazarus is an immortal, but Llilith informs her she used the same sword that was used to kill the Nazarene.
Marie is grateful and promises Liilith she will be rewarded in some way.
Zelda is thrilled that they defeated the terror, but the celebration is short-lived as Mambo reveals her true nature – her name is Baron Samedi, a powerful Haitian Loa, a diety to the spirits of death and rebirth.
Since her job has been completed, she must go back to the underworld.
She promises Zelda she will be there for her when her time in this life is over, but Zelda feels betrayed.
Mambo Marie comes to collect Dorcas to go to a better place, though she doesn’t want to leave. She whispers something into Agatha’s ear and kisses her goodbye, which lifts her curse of insanity.
Agatha asks Prudence what Dorcas could have possibly forgiven her for as Prudence comforts her and promises to fill her sister in on what happened when the Pagan’s blew into down.
Theo apologizes to Robin for making him leave and selfishly asks him to stay. However, he’s not mad at all and informs him “that’s all I ever wanted.”
Lilith continues to hear her child’s voice this time calling her “Mama” and pinpoints it to a voodoo doll.
Mambo Marie returns all the dead to the ground from which they came from.

‘Elite’ Season 4 Review: New Students, New Mystery, Same Scandalous Drama
The wait is almost over.
On June 18, Elite returns for its fourth season, but aside from a few new faces and a new principal hellbent on making a difference, things at Las Encinas haven’t changed much at all.
In fact, things are more dramatic than ever.
The premiere of Elite evokes the same feelings as the start of the school year — there’s a rush of excitement for what’s to come.
The series indulges in more of what has made it such a success: scandal, parties, threesomes, love triangles, intrigue, crime, and sex. So. Much. Sex.
I always forget just how many vivid sex scenes there are until I get pulled into a new season, but I’m very quickly reminded.
The first day of school for Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Ander (Arón Piper), Rebeka (Claudia Salas), Cayetana (Georgina Amorós), and Omar (Omar Ayuso) is bittersweet. While they may be getting another shot at repeating their final year, their classmates Carla, Lu, Nadia, and Valerio have moved on to bigger and better things. It’s a bummer to lose such a great group of characters, but you almost don’t feel their absence when the new crop of students takes their place, flips the world upside down for current students, and simultaneously ushers in a brand new mystery.
The new mystery anchors the story, and like in seasons past, it plays out with flashbacks that lead up to the fated moment.
However, unlike in previous seasons, we find out pretty early on who is at the center of the mystery with the how remaining the big question mark.
But there’s no question about whether the Blanco family is involved.
As Ander tells the investigator, the toxic family’s arrival “tainted everything.”
Benjamin (Diego Martin) is the extremely rich new school director. He comes in like a bulldozer with big plans to rehabilitate Las Encinas and its reputation after a tumultuous few years that led to two student deaths. He begins his reign by setting his sights on Samu and Omar, who he doesn’t believe belong at the elite school.
It’s honestly surprising anyone wants to send their children to get an education there at this point.
Benjamin doesn’t waste any time making changes, but with his focus solely on “discipline, excellence, and achievement,” he fails to realize that his family’s arrival brings the bulk of the drama.
Immediately, you begin to wonder how Benjamin plans to fix a whole school if he can’t even control his own children — Ari (Carla Diaz), Patrick (Manu Rios), and Mencia (Martina Cariddi).
Benjamin has a fraught relationship with his youngest, Mencia, who has brought the family pain in the past and continues to rebel and defy her father at every turn.
She has a genuine connection with new girlfriend, Rebeka, but the relationship stirs up even more problems for Mencia as Benjamin disapproves and thinks Rebe is a bad influence considering her mother’s reputation as a drug kingpin.
Little does he know, Mencia has gotten into a world of trouble all on her own.
While Rebe’s relationship with Mencia grows into one of the purest this season, following Samu’s betrayal last season, she’s understandably closed off and cautious with her heart.
Ander and Omar are still going strong but find their relationship is tested in unexpected ways when they invite Patrick, Benjamin’s son, into the fold.
Patrick knows the power he wields over them and intentionally meddles in their lives, but there’s also much more to him than meets the eye.
Ari is Benjamin’s star child who respects and listens to her father, but to her peers, she’s the resident mean girl who is oftentimes uptight and has a chip on her shoulder.
She catches the eye of both Samu and Guzman, which fractures their budding friendship. These two have always fought over women, but last time, Samu was being protective over his best friend, Nadia, who Guzman is still dating when the season commences.
Nadia appears only via video chat from her New York apartment, and their relationship allows the series to explore the trials and tribulations of a long-distance relationship that’s tested as temptation lurks right around the corner for Guzman.
While Guzman stands a chance with Ari based solely on social class and standing, Ari and Samu connect unexpectedly in an academic setting.
Who will the love triangle favor in the end?
Additionally, the school has attracted the youngest royal heir in Europe, Prince Philippe (Pol Granch). The series flips the classic “princess and the pauper” narrative to “prince and the pauper” as he connects with the school’s janitor Cayetana, making all of her fantasies come true.
But as the saying goes, “be careful what you wish for” as this fairytale quickly turns into a nightmare when it’s revealed the prince has a dark secret, and Cayetana’s past secrets with the late Polo and Valerio come back to haunt her.
Overall, you know exactly what you’re getting into when you press play on the fourth season. The writers have managed to deliver yet another incredibly intoxicating season about a group of lost souls looking for a purpose and tapping into the extreme lengths they’ll go to numb their pain.
Elite hits Netflix on Friday, June 18 with eight brand-new episodes.
*This review is based on the first four episodes of season 4 that were available to the press*
WATCH: Mel and Jack Talk Starting a Family in ‘Virgin River’ Season 3 Trailer
There’s plenty of baby talk going around in the Virgin River Season 3 trailer!
Netflix dropped the trailer for the upcoming drama on Friday, June 11 and it doesn’t waste any time answering the question on everyone’s mind: does Jack survive?
It’s quite an obvious answer considering there is no show without Jack, but if it’s been keeping you up at night, the good news is that he does.
Of course, that doesn’t put the question of who shot him to rest. (And we have some theories you can check out right here!)
As he recovers, he’s blessed to have Nurse Mel by his side.
With their romance finally heating up, the nosy locals in town begin asking questions about their future — is marriage in the cards? And what about babies?
Mel’s history will definitely come into play, especially as it was always her dream to have a child. But Jack is a new father to twins (at least we think they’re his) with his ex Charmaine.
Luckily, Charmaine is no longer hung up on him as she’s found a new man who is there for her and the kids!
