A Discovery of Witches - Season 1, Episode 5


So much happens! Ysabeau spills the tea on Matthew's past, we get to see vampires hunting, we watch the Congregation plotting (together and against one another!), and we learn how Matthew actually feels about Diana. There's other things thrown in there like the Knights of Lazarus, mating, suicide, and schmexy science-y stuff. Our wary hearts are eventually gifted with the reunion of Matthew and Diana! And then, CLIFFHANGER!


From the press release:

Gillian pays a heavy price for her disloyalty to Diana, but not before news that vampires are studying witch DNA reaches Knox. The fall-out threatens the fragile equilibrium between creatures and the focus is on ending Matthew and Diana’s relationship whatever the cost. Agatha treads a careful line of democracy at the Congregation, but Nathaniel continues to instigate daemon direct-action. Ysabeau relies on shock tactics to expel Diana until Matthew returns with breathtaking news about Diana’s DNA. Diana and Matthew are finally united in love, only for the unexpected to happen.

* 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?"
