A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 2
Our adventures continue! Our present day matriarchs are concerned about our witch and vampire. Did they make it? And back in time, Matthew's past is both a help and a hindrance to their cause. Mary Sidney? Helpful ... maybe? Father Hubbard, hindrance, definitely(!) ... probably(?) As viewers, do we even really know at this point?! Susanna and Goody definitely seem helpful, so we can hang on to that as a tentative fact . . .
Anyway, we fall deep into medieval intrigue. Diana's powers, though potent, they remain perplexing! Matthew's past is definitely darker in the viewer's eyes, and perhaps even darker than he remembered. In the end, through Matthew's anxiety (brought out by Cecil and Hubbard; 'he's gonna tell my Dad!'), we are left wondering about the patriarch of the de Clermont family: Philippe. What does he have Matthew doing for him in Tudor England?
Thanks to Michelle Gutierrez for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy.

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
