The Magicians (S02E13) “Little Cakes”

The episode begins with Ember giving us a run down about the creation of Fillory from season 1 to now. Giving his own spin on things you see that yeah Ember is a huge jerk (he didn’t let Martin back into Fillory because he was uncomfortable looking at Martin after he was molested; poor Martin!)….

The Magicians (S02E12) “Ramifications”

Julia carried Alice’s shade from the Underworld and helps Quentin and Mayakovsky bring Alice back to human form. Niffin Alice is needless to say less than pleased but they manage to bring her back but the human Alice is also less than thrilled to be back in one piece. Alice stays with Mayakovsky to recover…

The Magicians (S02E11) “The Rattening” Review

Julia and Quentin track down the Ancient One who will help them cross over into the Underworld if Quentin gives up the button he uses to go to Fillory. Reluctantly Quentin agrees so the Ancient One (who has sort of an attitude) says they have until morning to come back before she eats their bodies….

The Magicians (S02E10) “The Girl Who Told Time”

Remember when Dean Fogg said that they tried to take down the Beast 39 times (40th time’s the charm I guess)? We open with one of the Alternate Universes where Julia attended Brakebills. Not only was Julia incredibly gifted but she was a favorite of Dean Fogg. Now in the current (terrible) universe Dean Fogg…

The Magicians (S02E09) “Lesser Evils” Review

The niffin is out of the bag as Quentin is taken downstairs to a cage next to a guy who has the worst kind of STD that turns him into a werewolf. Makes herpes look like a mosquito bite. Penny and Kady spring Julia from Fillory jail (bad idea) while Eliot and Margo deal with…

The Magicians (S02E08) “Word As Bond” Review

Julia’s shade or soul was knicked or cut out during the exorcism. Julia seems fine but Kady and Quentin aren’t so sure. She’s too giddy and ready to wreak havoc: finding Dana and Reynard’s baby and use him to banish Reynard. Too bad Martin’s dead or else the two of them would have had a…

The Magicians (S02E07) “Plan B” Review

Quentin is being haunted by Alice. It’s tough trying to find a book in a library and look normal at the same time while your niffen ex girlfriend screams obscenities in your face. Alice wants to be free but Quentin wants to help her get back into human form. Seeing that Quentin won’t budge, Alice…

The Magicians (S02E05) “Cheat Day” Review

I’m going to review this episode by story line just to save time. Penny doesn’t get into much trouble today but his hands are still giving him problems. Although the White Lady regrew Penny’s hands he finds that he can’t do magic though he can still teleport. Dean Fog directs Penny to his old pervy…

The Magicians (S02E04) “The Flying Forest”

Quentin lost part of his arm during his fight with the Beast so Margo and Eliot take him to a centaur healer. Margo and Eliot have a kingdom to run so they can’t stay for when Quentin wakes up. Eliot leaves him a note with a box of Alice’s things. Julia puts Marina’s body on…

The Magicians (S02E03) “Divine Elimination” Review

Each episode is getting darker! Quentin, Alice, Margo, and Penny head back to Fillory to find Elliot sitting on his cursed throne (that was cursed by Martin the Beast). He starts to become paranoid and the other crowned kings and queens of Fillory start to plot to kill each other as well once they sat…

The Magicians: (S01E12) ‘Thirty-Nine Graves’

The emotions pill did some damage last time with Quentin having some extra fun with Margo & Elliot and Alice walked in. In this episode Penny unaware of the situation ends up being in the midst of all the tension. And he pulls this awesome question.    Refusing to tell him what exactly happens, he…
