Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Series Finale Recap – Sabrina Saves the World (4×08)

Sabrina Spellman always had one duty: to save Greendale from supernatural evils. 

Over the course of four seasons, Sabrina put her life on the line countless times to save her Aunties, Ambrose, Harvey, Roz, Theo, Nick, and the rest of the coven. 

Sabrina was the heroine and savior on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, so it’s only fitting that the series finale honored that, even if a Sabrina-less reality is a hard pill to swallow. 

The final episode begins with Mary Wardwell reading The Eldritch Gospel to the congregation; she’s basically narrating the sequence of events in the finale. 

It’s two days before Halloween, which means it’s two days before Sabrina’s 17th birthday!

After a movie-night with her mortal friends, which is basically code for an all-couple’s makeout sesh, Nick gifts Sabrina and early birthday present – a locket that will always allow him to find her. 

They continue hooking up in her room as Sabrina Morningstar crashes through her mirror and shuts it behind her to trap the Void. As you’ll recall, she’s just outran the Endless and the Void on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 7. 

She tells her twin that she came back to warn them that the end of all things was on its way to “destroy everything.” Sadly, before she’s able to reveal any more information, she dies leaving Sabrina distraught and filled with guilt.

Headless Faustus feels the coming of the Void and orders his body to stand up and rejoin his head. He then reaches out to Mary for her help sewing it back into place, who, at this point, just does whatever he says without questioning it. 

Sabrina and the team brainstorm ways to stop the Void as they prepare Sabrina Morningstar for burial. 

The RO-Cosmos have vanished, which means that they’ve officially been consumed by the Void. The end is near!

As everyone rushes to the Academy, Sabrina stays behind at the Mortuary to spend some time with her late twin. As she looks for a way to destroy the Void, the Trinket Man shows up and offers her an exchange: Pandora’s Box for the Imp of the Perverse. Considering how dangerous the Imp was on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 4 Episode 4, it’s probably best that it’s back where it belongs. 

Pandora’s Box, on the other hand, sounds rather promising as it once contained all the evils and terrors of the universe. 

However, trapping the Void is basically a suicide mission for Sabrina, who is told she’ll have to open it from inside the Void in order for it to be effective. This also means that the box may also suck her in too.

Knowing that everyone would try to stop her if they knew that she was planning the ultimate sacrifice, Sabrina writes a goodbye letter to all her loved ones. 

The saddest part of the episode, though, is how upset and hurt Salem is by Sabrina’s selfless decision. She tells him that he’s been a good boy, orders him not to follow her, and turns the mirror to stone once she crosses over.

When she enters the Void, it’s not at all what you would imagine the “end” to look like. There’s literally a wall that says “The Void” along with planets floating around as if they were art installations. Honestly, it looks like Sabrina waltzed into some hipster art show in New York. 

Salem makes a break for the Academy to inform them about Sabrina. Since the Void won’t let up its grip on her, the family decides to bring her soul back and place it into Sabrina Morningstar’s body. It’s a sound idea and while they are successful in their spell, they pull her back before she’s able to suck up all of the Void into the box.

When Sabrina awakens in Morningstar’s body, she swears she has to finish what she started, but Ambrose informs her that the Void has disappeared from the Observatory. 

“It seemed to have worked,” everyone assures her, but Sabrina remains skeptical. Out of sight doesn’t always mean out of mind, and that’s definitely the case here. 

Lilith learns that Sabrina has taken over Sabrina Morningstar’s body and uses it as a chip to get what she wants. 

She trades that piece of information in exchange for her freedom (and powers) by informing Lucifer that his daughter, the Queen of Hell, has died.

Lucifer is so outraged that the witches are using Sabrina’s body as a vessel for Sabrina Spellman’s soul, that he promises to give Lilith whatever she wants. 

Caliban is also outraged, and the duo vow to claim Sabrina’s body for the royal burial it deserves. While their desire to bury the Queen makes sense, neither stopped to consider that Sabrina Morningstar actually liked Sabrina Spellman since they were technically one and the same. She wouldn’t have wanted this, but again, that doesn’t stop either of them as they spell a handful of miners, including Harvey’s dad, to build a legion of demons to stand against Sabrina.

Meanwhile, Sabrina wakes up on her 17th birthday and while she attempts to make the best of it, she notices that things have begun to disappear. First her alarm clock is missing, then her food, and eventually, the cake with candles that she’s about to blow out for her birthday.

Before anyone can even figure out what’s going on, the witches are summoned by Lucifer and Caliban, who are waiting outside with Harvey’s demonic dad in tow. 

Lucifer confronts his “false daughter” who admits to taking Sabrina Morningstar’s body. She agrees to pay the price and even surrenders her powers to him, but when the miners approach her, they begin disappearing. 

Lucifer is shocked by her godlike powers and believes it’s proof that she must be destroyed. 

Back in Hell, Lucifer plots Sabrina’s demise and ignores Lilith, who grows impatient that he isn’t restoring her powers and decides to take it from him by stabbing him with the sword and drinking his all powerful, celestial blood. Lilith is just full of surprises. 

After she gets Lucifer’s powers, she banishes him from Hell by casting him to the Mortal realm in a brilliant twist that gives Lucifer a taste of his own medicine. 

Back in the Mortal realm, Harvey interrogates Sabrina about what she did to his father.  The more stressed out she becomes, however, the more people begin to disappear. 

Ambrose asks everyone to keep calm and does a body scan on Sabrina, which reveals that her body is completely empty. 

In blatant terms: Sabrina has become the Void. When the coven brought her soul back into Sabrina Morningstar’s body, they sucked some of the Void into her as well. As a result, she’s manifesting properties of the Void.

Worried about becoming too powerful, Sabrina zaps herself somewhere far, far away. 

The coven realizes they have to finish what Sabrina started by trapping the Void in Pandora’s Box. 

Nick says he can locate Sabrina with the locket he gave her for her birthday, but since her body floating around in space, he needs help breathing out there. Ambrose suggests the Weird as an oxygen mask. Who knew a terror could come in handy?

While Nick is out roaming time and space to find his girl and the box, the others embark on a mission to find Sabrina and the Void within her. 

Sabrina exiled herself to the Mountains of Madness where Faustus Blackwood approaches her. Since he’s obsessed with the eldritch terrors, he offers to help her control the world devouring power.

Without much of a choice, Sabrina agrees under the condition that he’ll teach her to contain it, control it, and tell her where the others have disappeared. 

Two weeks later faithful travelers arrive on the Mountain of Madness. They reveal themselves to be Prudence, Roz, Agatha, Ambrose and Salem, the familiar that led them to his master. 

They’re shocked to see “the Priestess of Nothingness” emerge for her daily feeding; she’s dirty, weak, and using canes to walk. 

Faustus informs them that Sabrina has taken a vow of silence to control the Void because any sudden movement will make things disappear. 

The Weird Sisters tap into Blackwood’s mind to learn of his diabolical plan. They learn that he’s not here to help Sabrina, but instead, plans to find the rest of the Void, bring it down to Earth, combine it with the Void inside Sabrina, break her down, rip it out of her then consume and wield the power himself.

Sabrina is well aware of Blackwood’s intentions to sacrifice her, but she doesn’t care to leave with them because it’s too dangerous. 

The Weird Sisters begin a spell to control Sabrina into leaving and as she resists and grows stressed, she swallows Prudence and Roz.

She begs Ambrose and Agatha to leave immediately and assures Ambrose she’ll see him at the end.

Back at home, Ambrose tells the Aunties that Sabrina used telepathy to tell him when to come back – during the Winter Solstice when Blackwood intends to enact his plan. 

As timing would have it, Nick arrives from space with Sabrina’s body and the box.

Three days later, the coven arrives at the Mountains of Madness to extract the remainder of the Void inside of Sabrina using Pandora’s Box.

They find Sabrina on the sacrificial altar and stop Blackwood as he’s about to stab her. They convince him to change his mind by offering him Pandora’s Box along with all the other eldritch terrors that they’ve collected. 

Blackwood’s greed gets the best of him, per usual, and he quickly learns the box is a phony which blows his eyes out. Nick also takes great pleasure in knocking Faustus out.

Sabrina is glad to see them, but informs them that they have no choice but to complete the sacrifice. She explains that she stuck with Blackwood to get a crash course on the Void, which revealed that she’s basically been absorbing the people that she’s made disappear. 

Good news: they are still alive. Bad news: they’re inside of the Void a.k.a her.

To get them out, they have to cut her open and open the gateway, go inside, and bring them all out alive. They also have to bring the terrors inside of the Void to get rid of them forever. 

And, most importantly, Nick is tasked with going inside and using Pandora’s Box to trap the remainder of the Void while also making sure to shut it before he’s pulled in forever. 

Theo and Robin hold onto an unbreakable rope to ensure that everyone finds their way back out. 

The Aunties and Agatha remain by Sabrina’s side as they cut her open and she begins bleeding out. As the others complete the world-saving mission, Sabrina gets very cold and begin seeing images from her childhood. 

As more time passes, she says goodbye to all her loved ones one-by-one. 

She dies saying goodbye to Nick as he exits the gateway having successfully closed the box and destroyed the Void.

His celebration is short-lived as he realizes his girlfriend died to save them all.

“She can’t, she’s Sabrina,” he says, which pretty much echoes how the rest of the fandom feels, but then again, with all of Sabrina’s near-brushes with death, this was almost unavoidable.

The Aunties hold a funeral for both Sabrina Spellman and Morningstar, who was often one and the same: cheerleader by day, Queen of Hell by Night.

A statue of Sabrina is also erected at the Academy next to Hecate to thank her for her bravery and selflessness. 

Now, if you’re an avid watcher of the show, you’re probably waiting for that “gotcha” moment where everything is reversed and the coven finds a way to bring Sabrina back, but sadly, it never happens. 

Hilda tells Zelda that she and Mr. C will move back to the Mortuary because “Spellmans have to stick together.” They attempt to imagine a world without their niece, and quite frankly, it’s impossible even for us mortals. 

Prudence pays her father a little visit and does what she should have done a long time ago – she takes a chainsaw to his body so that she can scatter him to the four corners of the Earth so that he’ll never cause trouble again. He’s immortal, after all, so creativity was a must.

And then… the final scene. We see Sabrina, dressed in white, reading in the “Sweet Hereafter.”

A voice asks her if the seat next to her is taken and she realizes it’s Nick. He informs her that the undertow in the Sea of Sorrows got the best of him. 

“We’re together here… forever and ever,” he tells her. “That is a plus,” she responds as they kiss for all of eternity. 

And well, the audience is left with the comforting fact that Sabrina got her happily ever after; she’s finally at peace and with the love of her life. 

Nick and Sabrina truly were #endgame.

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.
