Who knew that Joanna’s season-finale mantra “this ends now” would translate into a series cancellation for Witches of East End? According to Aunt Wendy’s loving fans and countless supernatural die-hards, hardly anyone expected the show to be axed.
Disappointed fans have launched a campaign to save the show, complete with hashtag (#RenewWitchesOfEastEnd) and online petition, which Channing Tatum has even reportedly signed. Even Witches of East End book series author Melissa de la Cruz is talking with show producers to see if she can incorporate the season 2 storylines into her next spinoff series. This gives fans a bit of hope for closure, especially since we were left with so many cliffhangers. Here is a roundup of all the season/series finale questions that demand answers.
Ingrid learns that the Beauchamp women have extra special powers and dear old grandpa is itching to steal them. Freya is the traveler, Ingrid is the key, Joanna is the dagger, and Wendy is the bridge. Do these unique gifts have something to do with Asgard? Perhaps Ingrid is the key to the Asgardian door, Freya is the transportation, Joanna is the brute force in case they run into trouble (likely), and Wendy is the bridge to get back home. More importantly, will they bring Thor back with them? Everyone knows he loves humans.
Detective Raven is onto Dash. She presumably stole Archibald Browning’s dark and twisty journals that Ingrid reconstituted from ashes. Raven knows that Archie was dabbling in some pretty sick stuff, and she wonders how Dash could be so comfortable living in the middle of all the weirdness. Does Raven know that Dash has powers? Does this make her naughty freak flag fly? Is she a member of the supernatural world or just a groupie? Your guess is as good as mine.
What to Expect
In other cliffhanger news, INGRID IS PREGNANT! It could be Dash’s baby. It could be the ‘Mandragoras. Should we make up a word for the half-human and distant cousin of the blue people in Avatar? Are we going to have to wait for the birth to see if it has rage issues or a tail? Inquiring minds want to know.
Stock Up on Vervain
A season finale wouldn’t be complete without the possible death of a main character. Poor Freddie drew that short stick. A dagger in the gut is a hard way to go, but it’s even more creepy when the murderer leaves a lovely message written in blood next to the body: “Death to witches.” Earlier Freddie healed himself from a stab wound affectionately delivered by his deranged grandfather. Could Freddie heal himself again? That’s a mighty big pool of blood around his listless body. Is he really dead? And who is the witch hater? Perhaps a vampire clan? Will they have hot bodies and glisten in the sun? I could get behind that.
Say You, Say Me
We also learned that one of Freya’s gifts is to recognize Killian’s soul when it’s in another incarnation. This should come in handy since Dash used the evil magic he memorized from the dark and twisty journals to SWITCH BODIES WITH KILLIAN. Setting Killian up for a murder Dash committed is definitely not a lesson in brotherhood, but to then suck face with his soul mate who quite literally just woke him up from the dead using true love’s kiss? That’s just uncool. How long will it take for Freya to figure out that Killian is really Dash? We may never know.
The Beauchamp women throw down with Daddy Dearest and he vanishes, leaving Tommy’s shell of a body dead on the ground. Full of guilt and in a moment of completely selflessness, Aunt Wendy transfers her last life into Tommy’s body. Her necklace turns black. Aunt Wendy fans everywhere scream in protest. Moments later, she wakes up in a sea of fire. A figure emerges from the shadows to deliver a single line: “Good to see you again, sister.” Spoiler alert: The sister is not Joanna. Second spoiler: We may never know anything about the secret Beauchamp who lives in the underworld.
What are your theories behind the season 2 cliffhangers? Do you think Witches of East End has a shot of coming back for season 3? Would you like to see the Beauchamps travel to Asgard? Are you pumped Hot Tommy is alive again?
