My question while watching at this point was whether or not Fogg knew or if he was fooled by his own spell. The one exception in the main group is that of Eliot, who has actually been taken over by the Monster from Castle Blackspire, as seen at the end of the last season. Margo falls asleep at her desk and dreams of Fillory. Follow the new season along with me in my weekly reviews and come chat with me on Twitter at! Fogg urges her to continue with her studies, and regales her with a story of when he classified Julia as a Knowledge student in another timeline. Showrunners Sera Gamble and John McNamara have little to fear, as it was just announced yesterday that the show is renewed for a fifth season, to the joy of all fans. But our Alice is stubborn and resistent.
Kim sits down to take the entrance exam. Even worse, they are double crossed in the end by Dean Fogg Rick Worthy , after his side deal with Head Librarian Zelda Schiff Mageina Tovah and Irene McAllister Jaime Ray Newman. Quentin has already learned how to appease Eliot — by playing games with him. Janet, who is actually Margo, also receives a warning from Ember that there are dangerous things in Fillory for the High King to fix. Professor Lipsen and Dean Fogg complain about lack of magic supply the Library allows them. Janet, a bitchy editor at a fashion magazine, wakes up in her office and opens a door to another world just like Quentin did in the pilot when young Jane Chatwin visited him in his dream to warn him. Meanwhile, Alice Olivia Taylor-Dudley is locked up in the library for breaking her deal with them.
As usual, The Magicians has drafted in quality to portray these alter egos in some shots, and many of these actors will be well known, such as Neil Grayston Eureka , Agam Darshi The Sanctuary , and Leanne Lapp iZombie. In short, things be crazy. We also see Alice shove a cockroach in her mouth for an inexplicable, hopefully to be explained later reason. For the good of society, of course. Our protagonists are living their lives on Earth sans memories and the knowledge of magic.
Kady notices that every time she or the hedge witch mentions magic something short circuits around her. You may know him as Santa, but he prefers to be called Nick. Aaaand of course our favorite bad girl Marina makes an appearance, introducing herself to our humdrum group of confused identities and puzzlement. I also work publicity for WhedonCon, a convention celebrating the works of Joss Whedon. The Magicians has always been adept at keeping us on the edge of our seats.
Things literally blow up around Sam and Janet as the truth comes out. How will Margo get back home? Each character, for instance, has both a new personality, and a witness protection type spell that has been cast over them, changing their appearance. Before moving to Los Angeles after studying theater in college, I was born and raised in Amish country, Ohio. As Janet goes around wearing the eye patch with every little ounce of confidence as Margo did, Sam finds her and shows her the comic book that seems to be the story of their fake lives. The most interesting thread is the Sam, Janet, Hansel, and Isaac story, which starts off as separate elements and then merges together, giving a good jumping off point for some mystery solving. Viewers are in the dark about the problem in Fillory, and the episode just felt like half of a whole to me. .
We had all predicted Marina! He urges Alice to keep her head up, to never lose hope. Zelda encourages Alice to embrace all that the Library has to offer. Join me next week as I continue to recap The Magicians, here on Geek Girl Authority. Yes, Santa Claus is a magician, and this is now cannonically true. Two, if the glamour was so strong, how did the monster find Quentin? Back in her office, Janet bosses around her assistant Sophie, asking for an eye patch as her fairy eye makes her see weird colors, and demanding Sophie to buy Fillory and Further for her, but the assistant seems to have trouble with that simple purchase.
Ember then zaps her to Fillory proper. At the tail end of last season, our intrepid questers had managed to turn the supply of magic back on, but at great cost, with each of them in some way paying a price. Margo wakes up in one of the forests of Fillory, utterly confused as to how she arrived there. Dean Fogg has rebooted the game; in a way, turned back the clock for the 41 st time. He believes he failed his responsibility to protect her in the past so he will not let her out of his sight this time around.
But slowly, Kady starts to come to some questionable conclusions, and interestingly, every single time she comes close, things start getting fucked up. She explains to the latter that Janet is also in the comic book. Before moving to Los Angeles after studying theater in college, I was born and raised in Amish country, Ohio. I want it to be universally known that Santa Claus is a magician who wound up in Library jail for attempting to steal a risky spell from the Poison Room. Suddenly, Marina 23 Kacey Rohl steps out of the shadows and offers her assistance.
After Zelda leaves we hear another prisoner talking aloud to Alice. She tells Alice that she has singled her out for rehabilitation, not punishment and that she cares because she sees her great potential. Of course, he knows that Kim really is Julia. Definitely not their best season premiere, but a solid episode that does its job. Meanwhile, Alice is sequestered away inside her cell at the Library.
Thankfully, the Library was able to hastily pull Alice back from the brink of death. Suddenly, Margo is reeled back into the throne room at Fillory. However, Zelda later discovers Alice has slit her wrists and is slowly bleeding out on her cell floor. Kady hopes to track down the elusive author and shake them up for information. Only, an even more intriguing turn in the tale… when Dean Fogg looks through his three-colored glass, we see a blurry image of Julia, where the blonde newbie was a minute ago.
