A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 3
There is so much happening in this episode! Our bargain basement Philippe (Father Hubbard), accepts Matthew's confession and plea for forgiveness -- and Father Hubbard is willing to take it (with the offer of a good word to Philippe). Diana visits Mary Sidney in her lab, and learns that there may be a path to the book that both her and Matthew seek! Where does this path lead? It leads to John Dee and his vast library.
As we follow this long and winding path with Diana and Matthew in the past (which eventually leads to our introduction to QE1 & Gallowglass), we must remember that in present-day things are continuing to happen in our timey-wimey sh*tstorm! We visit Domenico, Gerbert and Emily to see what they are up to, and what that adds to the larger story.

* 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?"
