The curse of the Aglaeca continues to plague the Drew Crew as they attempt to find a way to stop their inevitable deaths.
But despite figuring out what led to the Aglaeca’s death on Nancy Drew Season 2 Episode 2, they are no closer to figuring out how to stop the curse.
Worst of all, they now have concrete proof that the Aglaeca will come to claim their souls just like she did for Mac and the 1975 crew.
On the plus side, they also know there’s a way to break the curse. But first, they have to find Fox, the sole remaining member of the 1975 crew that’s still alive.
Discovering the sea shanty definitely helped them get a better idea of the tortured spirit they’re dealing with. The Aglaeca, aka Odette Lamar, definitely has a reason to be a vengeful spirit after what happened to her on the ship pioneered by a Marvin descendant.
And despite Mac’s attempts to kill Nick, who he thought was his black bartender friend Buddy, he did provide the group with some necessary insight along with a brand new lead.
Though, I will say that I wasn’t a fan of Mac’s thinly veiled racism. The series could have found a better reason to have Mac want revenge on Nick other than the spirit being drawn to Nick because of skin color. Why couldn’t we just say both Nick and Buddy worked behind a bar?
After learning that Mac was after Buddy to get the 45 recording, the Drew Crew was able to piece together that Mac wasn’t the only one who died as a result of not paying the Aglaeca’s blood toll. And it was a sweet touch to add in the previous ghosts we’ve seen before, like Rita from the N’orester, as the 1975 crew. I love when things come full-circle.
But how did AJ survive? And why couldn’t he save his friends?
Since he continues to visit their graves, he still feels guilty about his survival. Maybe helping Nancy and her friends will help alleviate some of his guilt?
In the same vein of making amends, Nancy and Nick definitely took some steps in the right direction with their parents. I guess nearing doomsday will help you gain a new perspective on life.
While Nancy hasn’t forgiven Carson completely, she acknowledged that she’s open to a path of healing thanks to Ace.
As a side-note, Ace continues to be the character that I love the most. He’s such a good, honest, and pure soul! And even though there isn’t any romantic tension between him and Nancy, there’s an unspoken love there, so I often find myself rooting for them as a couple.
Ace went out of his way to help Carson when everyone else turned his back on him and listened to his side of the story, and sometimes, all you need is a helping hand and someone to listen.
As we all thought, Carson’s actions may have hurt Nancy, but he was coming from a place of love and protection. He didn’t want to hurt her with the truth, but he was also scared that the truth might ruin their perfect family. Therefore, it seems inevitable that Nancy will stay upset with him forever.
He was just a man trying to what he thought was the best thing for his family.
Nick’s mother blew into town at the worst possible moment. She wanted to convince Nick that he should return home to Florida where it’s safe. Nick was adamant about staying put because Maine is a great and safe town, but I don’t think any of them really did a good job at selling the narrative, especially when she was clued into the spirits that were trying to kill him.
She was a little too chill about the whole “a ghost is trying to kill me thing. Even if you’re a spiritual person, actually seeing the supernatural in real life is enough to send anyone running for the hills. But not mama Nickerson!
Personally, I’d tell my son to pack up his things and come home immediately if I saw him being thrashed around the bar.
But then again, Nick is an adult, and he does have a good head on his shoulders along with a good group of friends. Sure, they may be a group of friends who puts him in danger at every turn, but still, they have his back.
Isn’t it funny when you should be more afraid of the dead and unsettled spirits than the living?
Nick and his mom got some much-needed closure at the end (though he never told her that he might not survive more than 3 days) and she was even able to acknowledge just how great George is as a girlfriend.
George is such a badass who not only acknowledges her flaws but owns them. When it comes to good role models, she’s it.
Too often, shows get boggled down with an unnecessary love triangle, but in this case, they’re made it very clear that George and Nick are it for now.
They even got Nancy’s blessing, although, finding out from your exes mom isn’t the best. Then again, she didn’t seem too surprised because as I’ve said before, it’s pretty obvious that George and Nick have a thing for each other.
Nancy was supportive, as we expected her to be, and that makes it easier for everyone to move on. Also, isn’t it nice to see healthy exes versus toxic ones? No hard feelings, no bad energy, just love and friendship all around!
Nancy continues to make Detective Tamora suspicious, and honestly, he should be. If I were the town detective, I’d question why this group of teens was at an abandoned orphanage in the middle of the night and why they “happened” to stumble upon a skeleton.
If she keeps popping up on his radar, it might not end well for her.
What did you think of the episode? Are you ready to move past the curse of the Aglaeca? Or are you invested in the mystery?
And will helping the Aglaeca in order to break the curse unearth some new intel about the Marvins?
Here’s When ‘The Santa Clauses 2’ Will Return to Bring You Holiday Cheer
Ho ho ho—it’s a Christmas miracle.
Tim Allen is gearing up to jump back into the Santa suit as Disney+ announced the premiere date for the second season of The Santa Clauses.
The Santa Clauses 2 will hit the streaming service on Wednesday, Nov. 8, airing its first two episodes of the six-episode season.
Episodes will then air weekly leading up to the Dec. 6 finale!
While there was some hesitation from fans of the original film franchise when it came to the TV spinoff, the first season of the series was positively received with viewers wanting more Christmas magic from Scott Calvin and his jolly family.
As for what’s to be expected from season 2, Allen’s man in the red suit will face off against a new foe, Magnus Antas, known also as the Mad Santa, played by Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet.
Per the synopsis, Mad Santa reigned during the 14th century and is now trying to reclaim his spot at the North Pole, which we know the Calvins will staunchly protect against any danger, disaster, or threats.
Stonestreet isn’t the only heavy-hitter joining the series, however, as comedian Gabriel Iglesias will star as Kris “Kringle” Moreno, the owner and operator of a Christmas-themed amusement park called Santaland,” while 30 Rock’s Tracy Morgan will bring his comedic chops to the Easter Bunny role. And lastly, Marta Kessler will appear as a “take-no-prisoners gnome” known as Olga, who is also Magnus’ sidekick.
So much for that retirement Calvin dreamt up in season 1, right?
In addition to all the new drama, Calvin will also be training his son, Cal, played by Austin Kane, who is set to take over the family business, though, personally, we’re still on Team Sandra (Elizabeth Allen-Dick).
Also returning in their series regular roles are Elizabeth Mitchell as Carol aka Mrs. Clause and Devin Bright as Noel, while Matilda Lawler, Santa’s chief of staff and Noel’s love Betty, will reappear as a recurring guest star.
Liam Kyle as Gary, Isabella Bennett as Edie, Sasha Knight as Crouton, Ruby Jay as Riley, Mia Lynn Bangunan as Pontoon, and Laura San Giacomo as La Befana, the Christmas Witch will also grace the screen.

Will There Be a Season 4 of ‘Only Murders in the Building’?
With just a few episodes left in the third season of Only Murders in the Building and the action ramping up, fans are wondering whether we’re about to reach the end of the road with Mabel (Selena Gomez), Charles (Steve Martin) and Oliver (Martin Short), the dynamic murder-mystery-solving-podcasting trio.
It would be a shame to wrap up a series with a cast that has such a genuine bond and chemistry, however, one has to wonder how many murders three people can endure without it taking a toll on their mental health.
This season alone, it seems like they’re over death taking such a strong hold over their lives, but then again, getting to solve the unsolved mysteries and helping those wrongly incarcerated get out of prison is important work.
As for writing, Hulu has not given word on whether it will renew or cancel Only Murders in the Building. This means Only Murders in the Building Season 4 is not guaranteed, and it can go either way, however, it does have plenty working in its favor. Each season, there’s a better and more star-studded cast, leaving fans wondering how the series can top itself.
There’s also plenty of buzz and interest in the show, along with rave reviews, including Emmy wins and nominations. The writers continue finding new and fresh ways to expand the storyline, with season 3 roping in potential suspects outside of the walls of the Arconia (though the murder does still happen there) through Oliver’s Broadway play.
There are so many reasons for Hulu to give the series a green light, however, we may have to wait a smidge longer as it’s impossible currently due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike. The strikes have halted production on most shows, and that extends to any talks of renewals.
Until an agreement is reached between the union and the studios, we likely won’t get any information about the show’s fate, unless there was an agreement for a fourth season in place prior to the strikes.
If there are any developments, we’ll update this post quickly and accordingly.
