CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA “Chapter Sixteen: Blackwood” review

Synopsis

Tensions rise as Zelda and Father Blackwood’s union draws near. Amid the chaos, Sabrina greets a familiar vision and Ambrose uncovers a dark truth.

Review

We’ve reached the point in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 which, if it were a network show, would be called a mid-season finale. In all honesty I felt like I was watching a season finale though.

The series slams its foot on the gas and moves at breakneck speed with a wedding, a murder and a funeral all in one episode. There’s so much to take in that I felt slightly bewildered on my first watch. But ultimately this feels like an incredibly rewarding episode which had me gasping on moving on to chapter seventeen.

There’s a palpable tension between most of the leads here. It’s worth noting that Harvey, Theo and Roz are entirely sidelined in this episode. Interestingly having them not appear helps the episode to feel a little more free. It has cemented that, at least with Roz and Harvey, that their stories have been slightly shoehorned in amongst the dark storylines.

But to be fair without any connection to the human world the series might feel a little less amiable to general audiences. Having that anchor does ground the show in reality and allow the magic to feel a little more… magical.

The wedding of Zelda and Father Blackwood is a typically gothic affair. Visually this is one of the most striking episodes of the series overall. A huge compliment considering it features little of the unique cinematography which many claimed to be headache inducing in Part 1.

It was also thoroughly enjoyable to see the series put its leads in such precarious positions by the episodes climax. With Sabrina now very much on the outside at The Academy of Unseen Arts, Zelda unhappily married and Ambrose… well we won’t spoil it for you but things aren’t looking good for the Spellman clan.

I sincerely hope the next episode doesn’t start with a reveal that all of this is Zelda’s vision of the future during a tarrot card reading!

But in all seriousness “Chapter Sixteen: Blackwood” is by far the best episode Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has produced to date.

Verdict

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina takes a hugely gothic turn with this equivalent mid-season finale. The show has begun to move towards edge-of-your-seat territory as the show leaves almost all its leads in a precarious position going in to the second half of the season.

This is strong stuff and I can’t wait to see where it goes next!

CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA “Chapter Fifteen: Doctor Cerberus’s House of Horror” review

Synopsis

Sabrina, Theo, Roz and others attempt to navigate the lines between fact, fiction and fate when a mysterious stranger sets up shop in Cerberus Books.

Review

Coming off the back of the excellent “Lupercalia” episode I wondered where Chilling Adventures of Sabrina would go next. Of anything which I had expected an episode delving deep into the psyche of the lead characters for a “what if?” style episode was not top of the list.

That being said “Doctor Cerberus’s House of Horror” does warrant some interesting results. It feels a little like watching a live-action version of a classic “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons.

The setup is interesting, this mysterious lady turning up who just happens to have no money and be a tarot card reader. It feels fishy from the start and the final twist in the tale is delightfully evil.

Sabrina’s glimpse in to the future is a great callback to an early episode of the Melissa Joan Hart series. Seeing Sabrina avoid being the glamorous assistant to Nicholas Scratch’s magician was an interesting spin on what we saw in the 90s. Once again the show plays heavily on gender politics with some serious back-and-forth on just who is in charge.

Admittedly Roz has a rather forgettable sequence and Harvey has a disturbing storyline ripped straight from a contemporary horror movie. At this stage I’m beginning to find their characters a little tiresome. Not because they aren’t good characters but because the series is struggling to find reasons to keep them relevant with Sabrina still spending the majority of her time at The Academy of Unseen Arts.

Once again it is up to Theo to steal the limelight from his friends. Seeing Theo get to explore being a “real boy” for a short period had a good old tug at the heartstrings. It’s ultimately heartbreaking to see that dream ripped away from him but I thought an interesting analogy to bring in the gruesome Pinocchio style references.

There is, ultimately, a feeling that this episode leans towards “filler” if you dwell to long on the daydream aspect of the storyline. The reveal of the mysterious tarrot card reader does at least bring the show back in to its long running arc but I can’t help but feel it was all setup to push the characters into certain trajectories for the future.

Verdict

With this episode Chilling Adventures of Sabrina takes a “what if?” twist and goes a little of piste for a moment. It provides an interesting insight into a number of the characters but also shine a light on how easily they can be manipulated.

An entertaining watch but perhaps the most “filler” of the initial five episodes of Part 2.

CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA “Chapter Fourteen: Lupercalia” review

Synopsis

Love and lust sweep through Greendale as Harvey surprises Roz with a sweet gift, and Sabrina explores a romantic ritual… and her feelings for Nick.

Review

Remember that episode of Buffy where she and Riley got stuck in his frat house and the sexual energy charged the house and made everyone crazy? Well this episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is lusty but it’s definitely not THAT lusty.

“Lupercalia” is instead an exploration of much more of the magical mythology behind the series. Though there are some mixed results this is definitely one of the most interesting episodes in there series to date.

On the positive side it explores the mythology without pushing it to become to comedic or too dark. Though it will undoubtedly be too dark for some more conservative members of the audience that is more because of the implications and the imagery. There’s nothing overtly explicit which goes on in front of the camera.

This episode also does a great job of exploring the power sharing of men and women in sexual relationships. Whilst there are moments which feel like they are representing an antiquated view of gender politics the ultimate act of the episode, the hunt, see’s the women in red riding hood garb chasing the men who are the wolves.

It certainly takes great steps towards positive, powerful representations of women even if the story is overtly sexual in nature.

This all ties in well with the story of Theo (Lachlan Watson) which is playing out at Baxter high. In this episode he takes great strides towards solidifying his male identity by coming out to his father. When I first watched this episode I felt the scene didn’t feel monumental enough given the subject matter. On second watch I realised exactly what this scene was trying to achieve.

It absolutely normalises the conversation of gender identity. Whilst Theo’s father struggles to understand what he perceives as his daughter as saying, by downplaying the scene it feels a lot more natural and more subdued rather than dramatic and over the top.

As we move towards the valentines dance at Baxter high we continue to see the Theo identity develop and it certainly does a lot for gender politics and relationships to see Harvey behave like he would with male friends around Theo rather than still treating him as Susie.

The relationship between Roz and Harvey is my weakest point of the season so far. It feels a little forced given the two are grieving the loss of Sabrina, who is barely around now that she attends The Academy of Unseen Arts. I’ll give it a few more episodes to develop but overall it feels like a way to try and keep the characters relevant whilst Sabrina is away.

Verdict

Another great episode for Sabrina. Though it will undoubtedly be uncomfortable for some to watch if you look below the surface the series is trying (and succeeding) to tell some really important stories about our contemporary culture.

8/10

CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA “Chapter Thirteen: The Passion of Sabrina Spellman” review

Synopsis

A sinister guest visits Spellman Mortuary. Theo faces a cast of cruel critics, and Roz and Harvey pursue an extra-steamy school assignment.

Review

It’s time for the Dark Lord to make good on his promise to come to Sabrina when he needed her.

Back when Sabrina signed the Book of the Beast it felt like a moment of desperation for the character. With her world falling apart around her, albeit by the manipulations of Lillith (Michelle Gomez), she felt she had no choice. When the Dark Lord told her he would come to her when he needed her it seemed like there were consequences of her actions to come.

Now that moment is here in an episode which seeks to explore an even darker side of many of the series characters. Whilst Sabrina struggles to do the Dark Lord’s bidding she speaks with her nearest and dearest who all eventually relent and explain to her exactly what the Dark Lord had asked of them in the past.

Of course this is just another trial for our heroine who is clearly being setup for big things in the future. Though we don’t know exactly what all our characters are being manipulated towards you can see there is a puppet master at work somewhere in the background.

Whilst all of that is incredibly interesting to see, particularly Sabrina flirting with a less innocent side of her personality. It’s Lachlan Watson’s Susie/Theo who really tugs at the heartstrings in this episode. Watson has done an amazing job of toeing the line of gender identity throughout the show so far.

But not its time to tackle the issue head on as Susie tells her friends that she would now like to be known as Theo. It’s a watershed moment for the character and for TV in this genre. Though it has never shied away from difficult topics such as identity and sexuality this is perhaps one of the first examples of tackling this storyline head on with what is potentially a younger audience.

It’s sure to anger some who feel the storyline is unnecessary but given the shows nature for portraying very contemporary issues which teenagers face it feels perfectly placed if you ask me!

Verdict

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina continues its solid second batch of episodes by daring to tell stories that many series would balk at the idea of. The series writing continues to solidify itself and prove this show knows how to handle its subject matter confidently.

7/10

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka as the titular witch. The series also stars Michelle Gomez as Mary Wardwell/Madam Satan, Jaz Sinclair as Rosalind Walker, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle and Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood.

CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA “Chapter Twelve: The Epiphany” review

Synopsis

As Sabrina prepares for a spellbinding showcase, Susie embraces a series of new beginnings, and Ms. Wardwell finds greater purpose at Baxter High.

Review

The first batch of episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina worked as an excellent introduction to the world of the show. Whilst its storyline meandered through the world of the occult its unique cinematography and strong characterisation are what carried it to a successful conclusion.

This episode acts as a reintroduction following the holiday season special. Its 55min runtime is brilliantly dedicated to re-contextualising the show, taking it to even darker territory than we have been before.

Given the events of Part 1 it feels natural for Sabrina to move to The Academy of Unseen Arts. Not only does it allow the series to explore more of its occult nature but it gives Sabrina a chance to act out a little more.

In the vein of shows like Buffy, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is looking to its dark side for analogies for the trials and tribulations of being a teenager. This episode specifically picks up on her breakup with Harvey (Ross Lynch) and puts her on the path to hooking up with Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) who is clearly being setup as her gateway to the world of witches and warlocks.

All of the successful elements of Part 1: Father Blackwood, the Aunties and of course Lillith return.

We’re still none-the-wiser on what Richard Coyle’s Blackwood is really up to. His is truly a long game and it’s testament to strong writing that over ten episodes in they haven’t fully revealed his motivations and managed to keep the character compelling.

It’s equally great to see Lillith given a little more to do outside of her quest to interfere with Sabrina. She is now Headmistress of Baxter High and meddling with mortal lives. It’s a source of great frustration for her that the Dark Lord is keeping her in the mortal world when Sabrina is no longer attending Baxter High but it’s clearly going to be a point of great interest to see her meddling with Harvey, Roz and Susie.

Speaking of Sabrina’s best pals they don’t have as much to do here. With her separated from them it’s going to be interesting to see how they factor in to the on going storylines of the season. Given this is more of an ensemble show I’m sure the writers will find a way to keep them interesting even whilst Sabrina is away at the Academy.

The highlight of Sabrina’s home life remains Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda. She is absolutely excellent in this show. I thought her comedic gold couldn’t go much further than it did in Wonder Woman but her portrayal of Hilda is so much more. She remains funny, loveable and heartwarming throughout. She easily steals every scene in which she appears.

Verdict

“The Epiphany” is a strong return for the sophomore run of the show. Its characters are stronger and its storyline feels better defined. This is definitely the first step in the show moving from its introductory phase to finding its stride.

8/10

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka as the titular witch.
