Season 2, Ep. 11
S2 BonusJane Tranter, co-founder of Bad Wolf Productions, and the British super-producer behind the likes of “His Dark Materials,” “The Night Of,” “Succession,” and (listed last, but certainly NOT regarded least) “A Discovery of Witches,” agreed to a sit-down with us; we discussed all sorts of things regarding the production of ADOW Season 2.

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 10 (Season Finale)

Season 2, Ep. 10
S2E10Jean calls this episode a prologue to Season 3, and it is, but it does manage to tie up Season 2 sufficiently enough for us. We say goodbye to Goody, the coven, Susanna, Father Hubbard, Pierre, Françoise, Jack (!), and Gallowglass in 1591. AND there is the "Hello/Goodbye" to Diana's Dad, Stephen Proctor!Meanwhile, we are getting a glimpse of what the couple will be greeted with when they return to their modern lives - Ysabeau, Marcus, Miriam, Sarah, Emily, Nathaniel, Sophie, Agatha, and Phoebe examine the problems they are facing, and ponder possible solutions going forward. Gerbert and Domenico are fighting for their own power in destructive ways. Peter (we have a few choice words to say about him) is planning a solo raid on Sept-Tours. Satu -- well, she offered her help. It's not her fault that Peter is too stubborn to accept it! Come to the good side, Satu! And then there is Herr Fuchs ... aka Benjamin (!!!)This episode runs long because we had a lot to discuss in the Spoiler Zone. Those of you who enter it, you'll understand why!Thanks to all of our NEW Patrons for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy.Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E10Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 9

Season 2, Ep. 9
S2E9Where shall we begin? Let's start at the end: Heart vein! Kit and Louisa's botched revenge! Queen Elizabeth I! Walter Raleigh shows himself to be useless! A house raid! Meeting a weaver's familiar! William Cecil (Lord Burghley) is an an a$$hole! Kit tests Matthew's patience! A baby?!! Is Goody is on death's door?! Matthew puts his foot down! Ashmole 782! Needless to say, many events occurred in this episode, and putting a neat synopsis together was a little hard this time around. No worries, we break it down further in The Spoiler Zone (for those who don't care about book spoilers), as this TV episode diverges from the book quite a bit!Thanks to Aimee Sund for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy.Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E9Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!

Season 2, Ep. 8
S2E8Diana studies the "Book of Death" with vigor, but she's not getting the answers she wants, and as a result, we aren't getting a lot of information either! So, let's go back to the future to try to get some news from the home-front.Emily is still calling up the dead, Sarah busts her, and is rather pissed about it. Ysabeau scraps some more with Gerbert, while him and Peter are still scheming to rule the world. Baldwin and Marcus can't see eye-to-eye, so Marcus goes one way, Baldwin seemingly goes another! Phoebe decides Marcus' story is worth knowing, so we get to observe a proper courtship! And to top it all, Margaret decides to join us on this earth, and with that, the attention of the Congregation becomes an issue. *INTRIGUE!*Thanks to Jennifer Wood for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy...Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E8Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 7

Season 2, Ep. 7
S2E7After departing France, Sept-Tours, and Philippe de Clermont, we feel road-weary -- but the initial reason for this trip was to go to Bohemia and retrieve Edward Kelley and Ashmole 782. The Queen DID give her orders, so off we go.We are met with a ruler who encompasses all of the deadly sins, Emperor Rudolf II. The machinations involved to soothe his cravings and get what Diana and Matthew need are draining, but our star-crossed lovers seem to believe it's worth it. Is it? Maybe. Probably. Anyway, that's what episode 7 of A Discovery of Witches is about, and our episode 7 review attempts to slog through all of the troublesome trials and tribulations with the Bishop-Clairmonts.Thanks to Kristen Shuck for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy...Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E7Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 6

Season 2, Ep. 6
S2E6Philippe de Clermont doesn't suffer fools lightly. Right now, he's got a couple of fools to deal with in his own house: Diana and Matthew ... yeah, we said it! We play the empathy game, put ourselves in Philippe's shoes, and see that these two star-crossed lovers are gonna make a mess if they don't alter their course soon! Like a weaver, Philippe's got a whole bunch of knots to tie. Diana's loyalty: check. An epic sword fight to lower the temperature: check. Matthew dealing with his blood rage: check. A witch added as an official part of the family: check. A wedding: check. A party? CHECK! Also, consummation ... CHECK. Done and dusted! Daemons crying like babies? Also check.Thanks to Debbie Hopper for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy...Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E6Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!
