7 best scary adventures of Sabrina episodes
by netflix The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina seen Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) defeat any threat to Greendale with the help of his family, friends and other members of the coven. From the horrors of high school and teenagers to the devil himself, superbly performed by Luc CookThere were plenty of opportunities for Sabrina to use her magic to make the world a better and safer place… or at least to try to do it.
Same minds as The CW’s Riverdale, Sabrina can really boil down to a coming-of-age tale complicated by magic and the possibilities it brings. It is dark, although often light. He’s bursting with magic, but still manages to stay grounded (most of the time). God knows how the show would have grown with such an incredible cast and interesting characters / relationships if it hadn’t been abruptly canceled when filming for the final season was already underway.
We have compiled a list of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina episodes that must be watched every time you revisit the series as they feature the best aspects of the series. Nullifying the list of 36 enchanting episodes to just 7 was a difficult task, but these are definitely the choices that will leave you spellbound and wanting more …
1. “October Country” (part 1, episode 1)
The start of Sabrina Spellman’s poignant story begins shortly before she turns sixteen, as she is on the verge of becoming a full-time witch, leaving her mortal life behind. But that’s easier said than done, because leaving this life means never seeing her beloved boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle (Ross lynch), or even his best friends. “October Country” presents a very different and darker take on the Spellman witches than the one seen in Sabrina the Teenage Witch featuring Melissa Joan Hart. It’s a mystical entrance that introduces an entirely different world and leaves you completely immersed in the dark and enchanting life of Sabrina.
2. “Dreams in a witch’s house” (part 1, episode 5)
A visit from the sleep demon, Batibat, leaves all Spellmans at death’s door. They are all trapped in their own world, confronted with horrific events and brutal truths. It’s a big moment of change for these characters, but more importantly, “Dreams in a Witch House” gives viewers a different take on Madam Satan (Michelle gomez), who actively tries to protect Sabrina while wearing the face of her favorite teacher, Mrs. Wardwell, which leads her to expose herself as more than just a mortal. It’s fun to see how Madam Satan tells the story and uses this opportunity to her advantage, but this episode is also a fantastic dive into Zelda (Miranda Otto) and Hilda (Lucy davis) complicated brotherhood.
3. “Witch hour” (part 1, episode 10)
After skipping her dark baptism and a season of magical misadventures, the situation in Greendale worsens when Madam Satan evokes Greendale 13, effectively bringing the End Times to town. The Spellmans must then find a way to save their city, proving that witches and mortals aren’t as apart as they would like to believe. “The Witching Hour” is a great episode showing the strength of the Spellman family when united, while detailing how devoted Sabrina is to those she loves and what she is willing to lose to save them. There is also a lot of fun magic on the screen, giving a glimpse into the power of the witches in this show. Plus, this is another big episode for Madame Satan, as her hold on Sabrina grows stronger and her devious cunning continues.
4. “Mephisto’s waltz” (part 2, episode 10)
After a season of Sabrina’s adventures as a full-time member of the clan following the completion of her dark baptism, she is confronted with the fact that Lucifer Morningstar is her biological father when he arrives in Greendale. In order to save the world, Nick makes a giant sacrifice, proving his love for Sabrina, while Lilith takes over as Hell Queen. “The Mephisto Waltz” deepens the tradition and magic of the show and places the characters in unfamiliar positions to shake things up in the future. Also, the arrival of Lucifer was long overdue, but what happens when he arrives is completely unexpected.
5. “The Hare Moon” (Part 3, Episode 4)
“The Hare Moon” tests the coven in an unexpected way when witches are robbed of their magical abilities by Lucifer, causing them to begin to age and weaken them as their fight with the pagans comes to a head. This episode is quite entertaining for Aunt fans, as Zelda’s new role as Headmistress leaves her in charge of finding new ways for witches to practice their magic, and Hilda is cursed. Ending reliance on the Dark Lord to provide passage for the witches is a risky move, but it really works to the show’s benefit, with an emphasis on the ‘girl power’ aspect of things.
6. “The Eldritch Dark” (Part 4, Episode 1)
After creating two versions of herself, one remaining the Queen of Hell with Lucifer and Madam Satan, it doesn’t take long before Sabrina Spellman and Sabrina Morningstar are reunited. But, that’s because our Sabrina, Sabrina Spellman, is alone. She’s outside after her run over the previous eight episodes, which saw her embrace her power and almost take a very different path. In the end, she chose, once again, to stay in the mortal world with her family and friends. Then Nick (Gavin Leatherwood) broke up with her. So what’s the next step? It’s an intriguing new start for Sabrina, as she begins her life anew… with some special moments and a little bit of fun magic.
7. “The pervert’s imp” (Part 4, Episode 4)
Alternate reality episodes are always fun, and “The Imp of the Perverse” is no different. The Pervert, one of the Eldritch Terrors, is used by Father Blackwood (Richard coyle) to make him the emperor and ruler of all living things. But, when our Sabrina and Roz (Jaz sinclair) are unaffected and immersed in this new world, they are forced to try and appeal to the side of their loved ones who are buried deep within. First, the episode shows how strong these relationships are and who these characters have become after four seasons. It’s an interesting world with such a terrible, horrible man in charge.
It’s hard to pick just seven, but they are arguably the best The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has to offer. There is so much going on for Sabrina and her company that in the end it really came down to the use of magic in each individual episode and the interpersonal relationships that determined whether or not the show would be successful. Personally, I think the series ended way too early. Part 4 had arguably some of the best stories from the whole series, and it’s a shame we don’t get to see more of Greendale.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is currently streaming on Netflix. Additionally, don’t miss Shipka as Sabrina in an upcoming episode of Riverdale Season 6!
