With one bad omen after another, why are none of these witches running for the hills or at the very least using their brains??
Disclaimer: The first time I watched this episode, I did so through a haze of cold medicine and delirium. Sorry if it’s a bit loopier than usual.
How has Ingrid still told no one about her run in with crazy pants Mike? How can Freya keep ignoring sign after sign after sign that she shouldn’t marry Dash? For that matter, why is Joanna so desperate to see Freya marry someone she knows has a 50/50 shot at being her daughters’ destroyer? I tried to keep track of all the bad omens we got. Hopefully I didn’t miss any… the veil ripped, the rain, the dead crow (how hilarious was that scene where Athena summoned those birds?), the groom seeing the bride, and the bracelet clasp breaking.
Mike is such a creep. Every time he was on camera I was nervous for Ingrid and worried about where he's hiding his axe this time. I can see why the actor has a following on this site. Kudos Enver Gjokaj, you've got superb acting skills.
No wedding bells for Freya and Dash. It turns out we were all right in assuming Dash was the destroyer. This show has shown a tendency of beating the viewer over the head with certain facts. Making things like Freya’s soul mate/destroyer debacle and the shifter’s identity so blatantly obvious to us that the plight of the characters can get sort of lost.
Is Killian dead? I did not see that coming. Poor Freya, she finally figured out who she belonged with and now he’s gone. It was interesting to me that when Dash attached him, Killian seemed a smidge confused about being thrown around by his brothers’ powers, but not surprised that his brother would attack him. I guess he did tell Freya that Dash would destroy her so there must be a history of violence of some kind, but how sad is it that he didn’t even seem to get angry? I hope Killian isn’t dead. It seems like such a waste of potential story lines. The hopeless romantic in me got all mushy thinking about Killian choosing to get reincarnated so he could fall in love with Freya over and over again.

Wendy drinks milk. Like a cat. Ha.
Athena is definitely dead. Her charred toe literally made me laugh out loud.
It’ll be an interesting twist if Freya choosing Killian is what turns Dash evil and thus making him her trickster.
Crazy pants Mike got what was coming to him, didn’t he? Ingrid tried to warn him.
All Ingrid had to do was touch the wall to open the portal.
Looks like we’ll be going to Asgard next season. Or is Asgard coming to East End? Either way someone was coming through that portal once it was opened, and I can’t wait to find out who it is. Frederick? Grandpa Beauchamp?
Dash: (to Freya) “I knew you wouldn’t come unless I tricked you.”
Get it? He tricked her, because he’s the trickster? This couldn’t be more on the nose.
Joanna: (to Freya on her wedding day) “I want you to make your own choices, to honor your own wisdom, and do what feels right to you. That’s how I know I’ve done my job.”
What a lovely thing for a mother to say to her daughter. So much so that I hope I remember to say it to my children (should I ever have any).
Joanna: “So you sent Dash to spell Freya?”
Athena: “Oh no. He doesn’t have powers. He’s actually in love with her. It’s very annoying.”
I will miss Athena's over-the-top conjuring, spelling, and hamminess.
