The third of the eldritch terrors – the Weird – has arrived in Greendale on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 3. 

This terror came directly to Faustus Blackwood, who eagerly offered up his own body to host the Weird One. Unfortunately, the entity wasn’t interested because it had its eye on another… Sabrina Spellman, who it deemed stronger than Blackwood.

You know that had to bruise his ego. 

Mary Wardwell suggested a Trojan horse in order to get close to Sabrina. A corpse containing the entity is delivered to the Spellman Mortuary. 

Despite the threats facing Greendale, Sabrina is more  focused on romance as she does a spell to essentially grow her own boyfriend that’s sweet and sensitive like Harvey and powerful with a dash of danger like Nick. 

I couldn’t help but chuckle at the fact that the “Grow a Boyfriend” is actually something you can purchase at an actual store. Magical powers not included.

Also, Sabrina may be an all-powerful witch, but she’s also relatable. After going on two bad dates, she realized it’s a waste of time when she can just make her ideal man. A true icon. 

Ambrose holds a seminar to prepare the coven for the terrors to come, but well, he doesn’t seem to know much about how to stop them. All Ambrose is really able to divulge is that they are inhuman, unkillable, and world-destroying, which doesn’t exactly elicit confidence. 

On the plus side, he shows the coven Harvey and Roz’s prophetic clues about the six additional terrors to come so that they can prepare, remain vigilant, and report any strange disturbances and manifestations.

Of course, this begs the question how two mere mortals were able to see and draw the images. While Harvey chocks it up to Roz’s sixth sense, Mambo Marie becomes intrigued and believes there’s more to the story.

She appears at Roz’s home later that day to inform her that she is no cunning woman but a Weird woman, better known as a witch, who is crucial to helping the coven fight off the terrors. 

Roz isn’t convinced, but a visit from Nana reveals that the voodoo Queen is right. Since the Walker women were god-fearing Christian women, they couldn’t exactly refer to themselves as witches, so they embraced the term “cunning women” instead. 

Mambo Marie emphasizes that they need Roz’s powers to help defeat the eldritch terrors. 

Roz eventually visits the Academy and proves her skills by correctly guessing all the cards in a deck while blindfolded. Prudence is shooketh.

Roz’s arrival comes at the right time as she also warns the ladies that the king’s from hell are coming for Lilith’s baby. 

Remember on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 2 when Sabrina Morningstar told Sabrina that Caliban was marrying her for the right reasons? Turns out, Sabrina was right to be skeptical because he put on a good act. 

With the Queen of Hell and Lucifer Morningstar off touring the nine circles of Hell, Caliban plots his reign and does a spell to speed up Lilith’s pregnancy as he “won’t have his title threatened by Lucifer and Lilith’s bastard.” Ego-driven and power-hungry, much?

Lilith realizes something is wrong and escapes to the mortal realm where she begs Aunt Zelda to help her deliver her baby. 

Aunt Zelda gathers the coven, who shares Lilith’s pain and helps her deliver “the perfect little devil.” Media often portrays catty women turning on each other, so it’s a powerful scene that shows how supportive women can be when they come together. 

Caliban is upset that Lilith got away, so he sends the king’s to fetch the baby so he can kill it. The coven once again bands together to protect baby Adam from Caliban’s wrath. Aunt Zelda then offers Lilith permanent shelter. 

Lucas Hunt, a new student arrives at Baxter High, and partners up with Sabrina. He asks her to dinner, but she immediately shuts it down. Roz questions why she won’t give such a good looking guy a chance, and considering the Grow a Boyfriend is still “growing” in her bathtub, Sabrina changes her mind.

During the date, she gets super personal and explains that she’s been feeling quite lost in life as she doesn’t understand where she fits into the grand scheme of the universe. Ugh, being 16, am I right?

While the date ends with a promising kiss on the cheek, Sabrina later finds herself in the tub as Lucas manifests himself as the Weird. 

The next day in class, Sabrina hears a high-pitched sound while attempting to dissect a squid. 

Lucas offers to take her home. The two begin hooking up when he pushes her off because her tonuge feels really weird. When he takes a look at it, he flees quickly as Sabrina realizes her tongue resembles a slimy octopus. That’s bound to ruin the mood. 

Ambrose explains that she’s turning into a squid-human hybrid as her body hosts a parasitic entity resembling an octopus aka The Weird, which hopes to use her body to attack the Earth. 

Ambrose does a full-body scan to find that the octopus is inside her intestines. While they need to act quickly, it becomes evident that trying to cut Sabrina open will only kill her. Their only option is to make Sabrina’s body inhospitable by draining it of water so that the octopus won’t be able to survive. 

The process is dangerous as draining the body could cause her organs to shut down. 

Nick assists in the process because he’s worried about Sabrina, but everything goes smoothly as she throws up the octopus.

The next day at school, Sabrina begins channeling the Weird during class and orders everyone to kill themselves to become nourishment for The Void. 

For some reason, Lucas isn’t affected by the spell bares witness to all of it. When Ambrose realizes what’s happening, he books it to the school and Sabrina to fight it by reminding her that she’s stronger than the Weird. When he’s unsuccessfully, he puts her under a spell and brings her home.

Sabrina is in a dream trance when she comes face-to-face with the Weird as it informs her that she was the strongest host and also the most vulnerable one. 

Upon waking up, Ambrose informs her that despite their procedure to rid her of the octopus, she’s still being puppeteered by the Weird as it attached itself to her cerebellum (her consciousness).

Since Sabrina wants to be free of the Weird, Ambrose suggests infecting her brain with every disease known to witch and mankind as to make it inhospitable. 

This is a bit more dangerous than draining her body of water as Ambrose tells her she has to have a stronger will than the Weird. 

Nick is on-hand once again, and when Sabrina begins struggling to sing her mantra, he helps guide her by singing along with her. It may be the cutest moment of the whole series, and I’m not sure how Sabrina didn’t fall back in love with Nick in that exact moment. 

After defeating the third eldritch terror, Sabrina learned that Lucas transferred to Riverdale High, which honestly, makes sense but also might not be that much better for him in the long run. Riverdale is just as crazy as Greendale!

Sabrina then confronts her inner-demons of loneliness and realizes that she needs to learn how to be alone and figure out who she is without a man. We’re here for a mature Sabrina.

Roz realizes she can’t tell Harvey that she’s a witch, but agrees to join Mambo Marie and Prudence in observing the realms for significant disruptions due to the coming of The Void via the eldritch terrors.

Despite pushing back initially, Prudence accepts Roz and declares the three of them the new “Weird Sisters.”

Faustus Blackwood is not concerned that the Weird failed because the next terror, the Perverse, is his favorite.

“The eldritch terror shall serve Blackwood,” he declares. 

Considering that Sabrina and co. are three for three in defeating the terrors, maybe he should be a little more worried? 

What did you think of the episode? What was your favorite moment?

Everything We Know About 'Christmas With You' Star Freddie Prinze Jr.

Freddie Prinze Jr., the ’90s heartthrob, is back on our TV screens in Netflix’s newest holiday rom-com, Christmas With You. 

In the film, Prinze Jr. stars as a Latino single father, Miguel Torres, who teaches music class at his daughter Cristina’s (Deja Monique Cruz) school when his path unexpectedly crosses with Angelina (Aimee Garcia), a burnt out popstar looking for her next Christmas hit.

The actor, who starred in hits like She’s All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer, admitted he felt pretty nervous getting back into the swing of things, but thankfully, it seems to be paying off as the film is being well-received by audiences for it’s heartwarming and important message. 

And now, we’re answering some of your burning questions about the leading man!

 

What Ethnicity is Freddie Prinze Jr.?

Since Prinze Jr. stars as a Hispanic father, the question of his ethnicity has come up quite frequently. The star reportedly embraces his Latin ancestry as his paternal grandmother was Puerto Rican, from Boquerón, so he is fluent in Spanish. His mom is of Italian descent, along with German, English, and Irish.

 

Does Freddie Prinze Jr. Have Kids?

Prinze Jr. shares two children with his wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar—13-year-old Charlotte Grace Prinze and 10-year-old Rocky James Prinze. 

In fact, the actor told TODAY that his return to acting has a lot to do with his daughter, stating, “My daughter has taken an interest in acting and performing, dance and things like that. So both my wife and I wanted to take a more active role to show her the way, so to speak, because we have very different processes (with) the way we deal with success and failure, rejection and acceptance and all those things.

“We wanted to give her an opportunity to see that it’s not just being famous, limousines and millions of dollars and all that. It requires a lot of sacrifice and a lot of hard work, time away from the people you love,” he added. 

 

Freddie Prinze Jr. Age

Since many of us grew up watching Prinze Jr. in the ’90s and early ’00s, we still think of him as this teen actor, but the truth is that he is 46 years old.

 

Freddie Prinze Jr. Wife

As mentioned before, Prinze Jr. wed his Scooby-Doo co-star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in 2002. In fact, the couple met on the set of 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer, but didn’t start dating until a few years later in 2000. 

They recently celebrated their 20th anniversary together, with Gellar sharing a sweet photo from the nuptials in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Instagram.

Virgin River Season 4 Episode 1 Premiere Review – All Is Not Calm In This Scenic Town

Virgin River Season 4 Premiere - All Is Not Calm In This Scenic Town

All is not calm in this scenic town, but you already knew that? 

However, if you didn’t know what to expect when Virgin River Season 4 returned to your screens, you probably didn’t anticipate the first episode to kick off with a very pregnant Mel walking with Jack. You assume you’re getting a glimpse of what’s to come, but suddenly, Mark, very much alive, comes their way as a debate erupts over who the father of the child actually is.

Thankfully, it’s just a nightmare (though, Mel might see it as a dream), and a peek into Jack’s current mental state when it comes to how he’s coping with the pregnancy news. 

It doesn’t take long before the series dives right in where we left off dishing out the expected dose of drama, feel-good moments, and that gorgeous, picturesque scenery. 

 

Mel

Mel and Jack arrive at the doctor’s office where she’s classified as a high-risk pregnancy because of her previous stillbirth. Jack continues to worry about Mel throughout the episode, which isn’t helping her since she doesn’t want to make a fuss about it. She informs him that when she was expecting with Mark, they did everything by the book and still lost a child, so her plan is just to live her life this time around and hope for the best. It’s not an easy thing to accept, but who can blame Mel for not wanting to worry when anything can go wrong regardless?

A new doctor blows into town, and since he’s a young, good-looking man, it stirs up a lot of gossip! Not only is Dr. Cameron Hayek a looker, but he’s also a great guy! But he’s no competition for Jack, even if the town’s people are hoping for some kind of love triangle strictly for their own entertainment.

Jack asks Mel not to tell her sister, Jo, about the baby as he wants to keep it a secret for a little longer, but Joey knows something is up when she calls Mel. When breaks the news to her, she informs her that she’s not sure who the father is. Either way, Joey is thrilled and knows this is what Mel has always wanted. 

 

 

Jack

Jack continues to worry about Mel throughout the episode, which isn

 

 

Hope

Anette O’Toole is back as Hope, but this isn’t the snappy and spunky woman we’ve come to know. Hope is recovering from a traumatic accident that led to a brain injury, so she’s not feeling like herself. Everyone is kind of tip-toeing around her as she deals with her new reality, particularly when it comes to Lily. Hope asks Doc if Lily is mad at her because she’s not returning her calls. Her brain blocked out the information that Lily passed away, and Doc does his best to avoid the topic at all costs because he doesn’t want to inhibit her recovery in any way. When Lizzie volunteers to take care of Hope, she accidentally reveals that Lily is dead. Once she realizes Hope doesn’t know, she panics and calls Doc who comes to inform Hope that she knew about Lily’s death and was actually on her way to the funeral when she got into the accident.

 

 

Doc 

As Doc deals mostly with Hope’s memory loss and recovery, he’s shocked to hear that there has been a young man looking for him claiming that he’s his grandfather. Obviously, since he had no children, he doesn’t really believe it. But at the end of the episode, Denny arrives on his doorstep and informs him that Rose Miller gave him Doc’s information. Doc recognizes Rose’s name immediately, but he also thought she died 49 years ago. The fact that he remembers how many years have passed means that she meant a great deal to him. Will Rose somehow be involved in the series?

Charmaine

Her appearance is brief, thankfully, but she does divulge that she’s expecting boys, a secret she’s conveniently keeping from Jack. I just feel bad for the kids because she clearly doesn’t value Jack as their father and is going to make being in their lives as hard for him as possible. 

 

Preacher

Preacher doesn’t have much action in the first episode, but considering the nature of his storyline, I’m sure it will change soon enough. He’s worried that he hasn’t heard back from the PI about Vince after he kidnapped Christopher. He considers taking the whole thing public but decides against it because he doesn’t want to spook Vince into hiding. Eventually, he’ll slip up and they’ll be able to find Christopher safe and sound. Hopefully. 

 

Brady

Brady is in jail, which is quite a scary place to be when you’ve betrayed a whole gang and are responsible for the raid that landed them all in prison, including Jimmy. He keeps trying to reach out to Brie and even requested a bail hearing, but things are moving pretty slowly. Jack suggests that maybe Brady was framed. He notes that Brady is a lot of things, but dumb isn’t one of them, so the chances of him driving around with the gun in his Jeep are slim. 

 

Brie

Brie goes on a job interview as she hopes to stay in Virgin River and make a life for herself here. After everything that transpired between Brady and Jack with the arrest, she chooses to ignore her former lover’s calls from prison. Will she eventually hear him out and let him explain his side of the story?

 

Hope is still in such a fragile place — how will she react to the news that Doc had a son and is a grandfather? Gossip travels fast in town, so it’s best if Doc tells her before she hears in the same way she found out about Lily.

Who do you think the father of Mel’s child is? It’s such a unique situation, and she’d likely be happy with either outcome. How will her pregnancy affect the storyline moving forward? Is the new doctor hitting on her or is he just super friendly?

Is Charmaine out of line? Will Brady survive in prison?

Stranger Things Season 4: Nancy Wheeler Owes It To Herself to Give Steve Harrington a Chance

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.
