The One With the Word

00Ep. 49

SON ch 23

Diana has just miscarried, and Matthew is a Mess™. We all examine our feelings and reactions to both characters in this episode. We also gather around with the witches to watch Diana cast her forespell! You were wondering about the episode title? Well, with this ritual a new creature emerges. How does this relate? F*cking Firedrake -- sound familiar? See what we did there? That also happens to be "the word" to get into our Facebook group. We caught ourselves trying to be clever! Please enjoy our splash back into the chapters; we certainly did!

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?"

A Discovery of Witches - Season 1, The Binge (feat. Renee Rozniatoski)

Season 1, Ep. 9

ADOW S1 - The Binge!

(SPOILER ALERT! Book spoilers throughout this episodes!)

All Souls Discussion Group Moderator, Renee joins us from Facebook’s largest group for delving into the All Souls Trilogy, its expanding list of books, and its television show. Administered by Deborah Harkness, this group is what we consider the epicenter of the fandom's origins. Renee's daily interaction with the group allows her to share unique perspectives when it comes to parsing this story, therefore we thought she'd be a perfect fit for talking about the TV series story arc. This is also our first episode interacting with Discussers this year! Yay! We missed you guys! A very long episode; take it in bites, but enjoy every one.

A Discovery of Witches - Season 1, Episode 6

Season 1, Ep. 6

ADOW S1E6


Matthew needs to find Diana ... and so does Baldwin. Their motivations clash in a vampiric display of will. Meanwhile, somewhere in a crumbling castle, Diana has to stave off a determined ('sadistic' is more accurate) witch from getting her secrets. Gerbert is skulking about hoping to get his own time with Diana, and this brings us to alarm because we know what he does to witches (Meridiana, anyone?)! Join us as we watch these events unravel! Also? Hello Sigasmund. From this episode on, you are no longer nameless. We shall call you "Siggie," OK?!


EPISODE 6

From the press release:

Satu brutally tortures Diana in Gerbert’s isolated castle ruins. Matthew, now sworn to hunt down and kill anyone who tries to harm Diana, attempts a daring airborne rescue mission with Baldwin in tow, but they are too late to prevent Satu invoking dark magic in a bid to open up Diana and see the magic inside her. As Diana is forced to confront the idea that she might have been spellbound, she wonders what kind of monster she is. When Sophie confesses that she is a daemon born of witches, this news of cross-species offspring leaves Agatha reeling as she ponders the implications for all their lives.
