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.
When Is Season 3 of ‘Ginny and Georgia’ Coming Out?
Ginny and Georgia centers on the heartwarming yet extremely complicated bond between a mother and her daughter after they put down roots in a New England town.
With so many compelling storylines and incredible characters of all ages, it’s no wonder that the coming-of-age drama has become a fan favorite among Netflix audiences.
The second season of Ginny and Georgia premiered on Jan. 5, 2023, which means that a third season is likely far off, especially considering Brianne Howey, who plays Georgia, just announced her first pregnancy, which will possibly delay filming.
View this post on Instagram
Of course, Netflix has to renew the series for a third season. As of March 28, 2023, it has not given the show a green light for additional episodes.
Fans shouldn’t be too worried, however, as a renewal is very likely considering the show’s performance, the rabid fan base, and the fact that season 3 ended on such a cliffhanger—Netflix knows that fans will be clamoring for another season to see how the situation resolves itself.
As for a premiere date, well, there isn’t one just yet. Until the series is renewed and production begins, it’s a bit too difficult to come up with a date for new episodes. The season could likely arrive in February 2024 if we’re looking at the previous premieres for both seasons 1 and 2, which both debuted at the start of 2021 and 2023, respectively.
But with Howey’s pregnancy thrown into the mix, that could delay things a bit, and it wouldn’t be the worst thing if the series returned during the summer when there’s a lull in content and fans are seeking out something to binge-watch and get invested in.
Either way, when Netflix makes an official decision, you’ll be the first to know as we’ll update this article accordingly!
Until then, you can gear up for the final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Riverdale, and Firefly Lane!
Who Is Rhys Montrose on ‘YOU’ Season 4?
YOU Season 4 introduced a plethora of new characters as it revamped the series with a murder mystery format.
*Warning – stop reading if you haven’t finished YOU Season 4 – Spoilers Ahead *
The shakeup made sense considering Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) uprooted his life following the fiery events in Madre Linda that killed Love Quinn and started over in London, assuming the identity of Professor Jonathan Moore.
Rather quickly, he got pulled into an elite group thanks to his co-worker and neighbor, Malcolm Harding (Stephen Hagan), who was the season’s first victim. Joe/Jonathan naturally despised Malcolm’s group, though he did find Rhys Montrose (Ed Speleers), an author running for Mayor of London, to be a bit of a kindred spirit. They came from the same broken background and shared many of the same views.
As the first half of the season unraveled, Joe sought out advice from Rhys on a handful of occasions, engaging in plenty of long heart-to-hearts with him, so it was kind of shocking when it was revealed that Rhys, as audiences have come to know him, was never real.
Rhys Montrose existed, yes, but he was never friends with Joe, nor was he the Eat the Rich Killer. The version of Rhys that Joe bonded with was a hallucination conjured up by his subconscious to protect himself and eliminate his darker, more deranged thoughts.
For much of the season, we saw Joe desperately trying to set himself free from Rhys’ grasp. At first, he saw him as public enemy #1, who somehow figured out Joe’s real identity and roped him into a murder spree by threatening to frame him for the deaths if Joe refused to participate.
However, once Joe realized that Rhys was a figment of his imagination, he began to look for ways to silence the evil little voice forever, while also trying to figure out a plan to cover up the death of the real Rhys Montrose.
Joe was tasked with killing the mayoral candidate, who he assumed at the time was the Eat the Rich Killer, by Kate’s (Charlotte Ritchie) father, Tom Lockwood. When he arrived at Rhys’ secret countryside hideout and tied him up, he was infuriated that Rhys claimed not to know who he was, nor would he admit to kidnapping Marienne (Tati Gabrielle). Eventually, Joe’s rage and anger took over, and he “accidentally” killed Rhys, which is when fake Rhys showed up and revealed that Joe was having a semi-psychotic break.
In the end, Joe’s suicide attempt ensured that his hallucinations were forever gone, though he did embrace the darkness he was trying so hard to snuff out, making him more dangerous than ever.
As for the real Rhys Montrose’s killer, he pinned it all on poor Nadia (Amy-Leigh Hickman), a fan of Rhys’s from the beginning, who flew too close to the sun in her attempts to bring down Joe Goldberg. If only she just listened to Marienne’s advice.
A huge congrats to the YOU team for pulling off yet another jaw-dropping twist, and to both Badgley and Speleers for completely immersing themselves in their dual characters.
YOU Review – Best of Friends (406)
Just when you thought you figured out where the season was headed, YOU pulls out the rug from under you yet again.
I’m definitely starting to feel the whiplash that Joe/Jonathan must be feeling right about now.
Things have gone from crazy to crazier rather quickly, as Rhys unveiled his true plan—along with how Joe is involved—while Joe came out victorious in front of the elite group once again, and all while a new suspect started piecing things together and realizing that Joe knows way more than he’s led on.
While Joe spent numerous hours trying to figure out a plan to get close to Rhys, Rhys just appeared at Joe’s place one night without so much as lifting a finger. Joe may think he’s the invisible one in the city, but for a man who’s so well-known and loved, Rhys seems to get around without anyone noticing.
And he made the rules of the game very clear—either Joe finds someone to frame for all the deaths or he goes down as the Eat-the-Rich killer, which isn’t exactly ideal. A little incentive goes a long way, so while Joe tried to distance himself initially, he couldn’t shake the desire for self-preservation and took the bait. He took the task rather seriously as it was either kill or be killed; he knew someone had to go down for it, but it had to be the right person.
With time running out, he genuinely began to consider Connie, but despite being an irrelevant character, he couldn’t justify pinning it on someone who was struggling with addiction and trying to turn their life around. Connie wasn’t a threat to anyone, except for maybe himself, so Joe couldn’t justify destroying his life.
But Dawn, well, she fell right into his lap. The few times we saw her snapping photos of the elite, and focusing on Joe–including when she spotted him at Rhys’ mayoral rally—I was convinced that she recognized him from his previous life. And that seems to be what the series wanted me to think so that they could pull a fast one on us because when Dawn pulled Phoebe aside to a “safe room” to keep her protected from the killer, it was revealed that Dawn was just an obsessive stalker who was connived that she was friends with the elite, Phoebe in particular. Dawn was a threat to a lot of people, so Joe took advantage of it. He framed her by planting Simon’s ear in her belongings, and since no one would ever believe a word she said over Phoebe’s accounts of what happened, Dawn couldn’t prove her innocence. Plus, she made an ideal suspect since she was at nearly every single event where a murder occurred as she was stalking the group. I mean, it couldn’t have been any more perfect if Joe had tried to plan it himself.
However, his heroics did raise some questions from Nadia, his student and the lover of all murder mysteries. She noticed that Jonathan seemed to be at the center of every single scenario, oftentimes being championed as a hero, though he’s not actually connected to any of these people in any meaningful way. It’s a dangerous thing to play detective, especially when you’re setting your sights on Joe Goldberg. Jonathan seems to like Nadia, but if she threatened him, I don’t think Joe would hesitate to take her down. Self-preservation is his M.O., remember?
Once Joe thought he finally got Rhys off of his back by framing Dawn, he decided to give into his desires and pursue a relationship with Kate. Honestly, Kate makes some really poor decisions, starting with just accepting Jonathan for who he is now and promising never to ask questions about his past. She wants someone to see her for who she is in the moment so badly that she’s letting logic take a backseat. Why would someone want to deny their past so badly unless they did something truly unforgivable? Kate wants to shed her past because of her connection to her father and she thinks that makes her and Jonathan equal, but they are not the same.
By the time she realizes the truth about who Joe is, it might be too late.
As for Rhys, did Joe think he was really going to get rid of him that easily? Rhys has always wanted a friend to help him get to the finish line so to speak. He believes that they are the same, so he wasn’t going to just let Joe slip away.
And while his motive wasn’t evident at first, he seems hellbent on taking out those who don’t deserve their success and wealth. The three victims, Malcolm, Simon, and Gemma, all threatened his mayoral run in some way, so they were taken care of, and now, he’s setting his sights on the ultimate villain–Kate’s father. She may have a complicated relationship with her tycoon dad, but I don’t think Kate would ever want to see anything bad happen to him, let alone at the hands of the man she’s in love with.
However, Rhys doesn’t seem to give Joe much of a choice as he still holds all of the cards. One might think that Joe could just handle this in the same way he always does, but well, you can’t just try to kill a killer. He’d see that coming from miles away. Joe needs to be strategic and deliberate in his plan, so for now, he has to play along. I, for one, am curious to see what all the hubbub is about Kate’s father–is he really as terrible as she makes him out to be?
As for Rhys, what is the catch? Fans were disappointed with the first half of the season since his reveal as the killer was obvious—and his motives, including his desire to kill Kate’s father–are exactly shocking or game-changing. What are we missing?
