'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's 10 Biggest Changes From Part 1 to Part 2 (PHOTOS)
Sabrina Embraces the Darkness
Apart from her relationship with Warlock Nick Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood), Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) let the safe side fall away as she embraced her "wild" side. Between enjoying some alcoholic beverages and doing the dark lord's bidding, Sabrina ventured further down the path of darkness than we could have imagined in Part 1. Luckily deep down she's determined to keep the balance between her mortal and witch side in check, and that isn't likely to change anytime soon.
For fans of Harvey (Ross Lynch) and Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) all hope was basically lost when it came to their relationship in Part 2. Instead Sabrina formed a bond with dangerous warlock Nick Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) while Roz (Jaz Sinclair) and Harvey turned to each other in Sabrina's absence. By Part 2's end it doesn't appear that any of what happened will be changing anytime soon so let the new ships prevail in the meantime.
Sabrina's Growing Power
In Part 2, Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) doesn't hesitate when it comes to using her powers. She becomes so powerful in Part 2 that she appears to be immune to death. But all the magic in the world hasn't made this witch power hungry and we appreciate that.
The Mortals Join the Action
Calling this trio — Roz (Jaz Sinclair), Harvey (Ross Lynch) and the now Theo (Lachlan Watson) — mere mortals may be an understatement considering some of their abilities and gifts despite not being witches, but they played a bigger role this go around. Rather than kind of helping, these three literally stood at the "gates of hell" to help their friend Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka). Especially Harvey, who was apprehensive about Sabrina after learning about her witch side was more than eager to help.
Aunt Zelda's Personality Problem
In Part 2, Zelda (Miranda Otto) marries Father Faustus Blackwood, but her usually blunt approach is replaced with a Stepford Wives
-like demeanor after their honeymoon. Viewers soon learn that she was under a spell, but even so it was hilarious to see Zelda in a new light for a brief time before returning to her good-old self.
Aunt Hilda Has a Boyfriend
As fans saw at the end of Part 1, Dr. Cee (Alessandro Juliani) wasn't exactly human, but what was he then? Possessed by an incubus. Something that didn't bother Hilda (Lucy Davis) when she propositioned her coworker. So the quieter Spellman sister embraced romance and we... well, love it.
When Witches and Warlocks Get Freaky
Part 2 ramped things up in the risque department as the holiday known as Lupercalia rears its head at the Academy of Unseen Arts (coinciding with the mortals' Valentine's Day). Needless to say, it's basically one big orgy-encouraging celebration that we're not sure we signed up for...
Sabrina Does "Masquerade"
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
took a note from its CW cousin Riverdale
and embraced the musical with their song and dance number of Phantom of the Opera
's "Masquerade" during Sabrina's "coronation." The spectacle brought a lot to the table — dazzling choreography, gaudy costumes, and solid vocals. It has us wondering what the show was like before it and when will they make a full-on musical episode?
Mrs. Wardwell Has a Change of Heart
Whether you call her Mrs. Wardwell, Madame Satan or Lilith (Michelle Gomez), this otherworldly being changed her tune majorly by Part 2's end. Why? Lilith wants to be Queen of hell, Sabrina doesn't and so they agree to work together in order to topple Satan's (Luke Cook) plans for them both. While she was introduced as a sort of antagonist in Part 1, she exited Part 2 as an ally. The hell-dweller even resurrected the real Ms. Wardwell (Sabrina's favorite teacher at Greendale high).
The Dark Lord's Less-Scary Appearance
After appearing as an animalistic monster figure throughout Part 1 and some of Part 2, the Dark Lord (Luke Cook) unvieled himself to be not too harsh on the eyes. Of course, the personality could use some sprucing as Satan's intentions and tone can't be fixed with a better-looking outward appearance.
