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?
CW Spring Schedule—’Walker’ Premiere Date Announced, But Where Is ‘Superman & Lois’?
The CW is gearing up for its spring TV season—and April showers are clearly going to be bringing back many highly-anticipated shows by fans.
With plenty of CW originals going on the chopping block last year, two survivors, Walker and All American, finally have airdates for what will likely be their final seasons.
All American Season 6 will be gracing TV screens on Monday, April 1 at 8/7c (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke), as Walker returns with Season 4 on Wednesday, April 3!
Two surviving shows that are visibly absent from the lineup, however, are All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois.
It’s unclear why the shows are being held back, but the hope is that they will now mark the network’s fall TV season.
As for new shows, Walker will be joined by crime drama Sight Unseen starring The Originals‘ Daniel Gillies.
There’s also no word on a second season for The CW’s Sullivan’s Crossing starring Chad Michael Murray, Scott Patterson and Morgan Kohan, though it seems the series will be debuting in April in Canada, so fingers cross a fall return is possibly stateside.
Here’s the full lineup for The CW spring 2024:
MONDAY, APRIL 1
8 pm All American (Season 6 premiere)
9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere)
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3
8 pm Walker (Season 4 premiere)

It’s Happening—’Wizards of Waverly Place’ Is Getting a Sequel With Selena Gomez
In the words of the Wizards of Waverly Place theme song—yes, please.
Deadline exclusively reported that Disney is reviving its hit series, starring Selena Gomez. The network has ordered a pilot for a sequel to the teen show that ran from 2007 to 2012 on Disney Channel.
And there’s definitely something to be more excited about because it’s set to be executive-produced by original stars Gomez and on-screen brother David Henrie.
That’s not all! Gomez will reportedly guest star the pilot episode to reprise her iconic role as Alex Russo, while Henrie will be a series regular in the role of Justin Russo.
Rounding out the new cast will be Janice LeAnn Brown (Billie), Alkalio Thiele (Roman Russo), and Mimi Gianopulos (Giada) who will play Justin’s wife and kids.
The series, hailing from the writers and producers of Raven’s Home (another spinoff of an early Disney Channel show, That’s So Raven, that found a second life) Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, will kick off with a mysterious incident as WizTech, where Justin works after surrendering his wizard powers to lead a human life.
However, Billie soon arrives as a powerful young wizard seeking training and guidance, forcing Justin to get back to magic to save the Wizard World.
Henrie confirmed the news on social media, sharing a photo of the pilot episode and captioning it, “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back! 🪄”

Gomez also took to her Instagram Story to share a throwback photo with Henrie, writing, “We’re back.”
It’s unclear if other members of the original cast who played Justin’s parents and brother—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, and Jake T. Austin—along with Alex’s bestie Jennifer Stone will reprise their roles.
But this is something worthy of celebration for all the millennials who grew up with the Russo family!
‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding
Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!
The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.
The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year.
She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.
“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.
Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed.
“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”
With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.”
Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.
They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.
As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception!
“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said.
Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”
Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”
Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!
