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?

Inventing Anna Series Premiere Review – Who the Hell Is Anna Delvey? (1×01)

Published

on

Inventing Anna Series Premiere Review Episode 1 Life of a VIP

From the creative mind of Shonda Rhimes comes Inventing Anna.

It’s the story of Anna Delvey that you’ve likely heard before, but with Shondaland’s exclusive twist on it.

Delvey, real name Anna Sorokin, was a faux socialite who scammed New York’s high society, including hotels, banks, Wall Street, and elite friends.

The Russian immigrant posed as a German heiress in an attempt to steal millions of dollars from the wealthy. 

But despite having Sorokin’s name in the title, the first episode of the Netflix limited series hinges heavily on Vivian Kent, the ambitious journalist who landed the tell-all interview with Delvey. 

Anna Chlumsky (who you might remember from the ’90s My Girl fame) is a powerhouse in the role as she sets her sights on Delvey/Sorokin (played by Ozark’s Julia Garner) in order to revive her career.

Kent has been banished to “Scriberia,” a corner of the office where she’s convinced journalists go to die. After coming upon Delvey’s upcoming trial, she sniffs out a case and tries to convince her bosses — Paul and Landon — to cover the story. 

Unfortunately, neither of them seemed particularly moved by her spiel as they insist she covers the women of Wall Street’s #MeToo plight. 

Kent, however, doesn’t feel compelled to bully these women into telling their stories for clickbait and pursues the Delvey story instead. 

The more she digs, the less she knows. 

Delvey is an enigma who seemingly crafted many personas while schmoozing with New York’s upper echelon. 

Eventually, Kent is able to convince the editor of The Manhattan (the show’s New York magazine) to let her roll with the story. 

It’s unclear why her editor, Paul, has it out for her, but the series seems to purposefully leave Kent’s background vague throughout the episode. 

All we know is that something went wrong, a little boy was involved, Google will remember it forever (the internet never forgets), and that’s she’s desperate to revive her career, a feat she hopes to accomplish before she has her baby girl. When she realizes that it might not be possible, she has an entire breakdown at the gynecologist’s office during the ultrasound, which, as a woman trying to juggle a career and motherhood, is all too relatable. 

And then — she gets the absolute motivation to convince Delvey to reject the plea deal being offered and fight for her reputation as well. 

In an intense meeting where Kent levels with Delvey, she convinces her that she deserves to have her story told. 

But that’s not what ultimately persuades Delvey. As a journalist, you want something from your subject, but in order to get it, you also have to know what your subject wants. So, in exchange for her story, Kent promises Delvey the one thing she wants more than anything: fame.

After all, Delvey herself claims that the persona she made up is a “masterpiece, bitches,” while the friends she conned note that she was a “legend” and “icon.”

In that pivotal scene, it seems as though Kent has fully tapped into why Delvey concocted her scheme in the first place. While she claims to be a businesswoman who wanted to secure a loan for an exclusive club she wanted to open up, Delvey was obsessed with the high life; the exclusivity of being an “it” girl.

Kent tapped into the vein fueling Delvey’s motivations this whole time — even from the depths of Rikers. 

While the series is based on a true story, it’s definitely not an accurate depiction of what really happened, but that’s neither here nor there because the episode is wildly entertaining and keeps you hanging on to every single delusion Delvey divulges. 

Much of Kent’s background — even if vague at times — is presented, while there’s just enough of Garner’s Delvey, with her intense accent, to hook you into coming back for more. 

Though neither would admit it, Delvey and Kent have one thing in common — the need to prove themselves, which makes this profile something that’s in both of their best interests.

And it’s even in the interest of Delvey’s lawyer, Todd, who also wants to prove himself as an ADA. 

Todd, played by Arian Moayed, is definitely battling some insecurity issues. He even tells his wife, a powerful attorney working at her father’s firm, that he feels inferior to many of their friends. He may be defending the world’s biggest con artist, but somehow, he’s the one feeling like a fraud while Delvey remains adamant she’s not the criminal they are painting her out to be. 

At times, you almost feel for Delvey and start to believe her story, only to realize that her act is one big manipulation tactic. It also becomes harder to empathize with her when she calls Kent out for looking “very poor” and “very, very fat.” However, those moments paint a vivid photo of the kind of things Delvey prioritized, even while spending time in one of the most dangerous prisons. 

All of this likely proves that Garner has nailed the role of the woman who was able to manipulate some of the smartest people in the city. 

Of course, while much of the back-and-forth dance happens between Kent and Delvey, there’s an incredible supporting cast. 

Todd faces off assistant DA Catherine McCaw played by Westworld’s Rebecca Henderson. 

Rhimes takes care of her own as Scandal’s Katie Lowes and Jeff Perry; Lowes plays ex-Vanity Fair picture researcher and Delvey’s bestie Rachel DeLoache Williams, while Perry is Kent’s fellow journalist.

The Bold Type’s Alexis Floyd as Neff, an employee at the hotel Delvey stayed at who assists Kent with her story, while Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox will appear as celebrity fitness trainer Kacy Duke.

Inventing Anna has all the makings of a Rhimes hit series, so strap in for the ride because from the looks of it, Delvey is just getting started as we take a peak behind the curtain to figure out what exactly led up to this very prison meeting. 

And we can’t wait to see where Garner takes this role as the trial ramps up, which leaves all of NYC’s finest quaking in their boots.

After all, did you ever imagine that Ruth would become the moral heartbeat of Ozark?!
