'Witches of East End' finale: Death, fate and the door to Asgard in 'Oh, What a World'
Ingrid, Freya, Wendy and are OK though. Really stressed, but fine.
Oh, and someone opened the door to Asgard.
If you need a little more when it comes to status updates for the characters of "Witches of East End," here are a few details.
Penelope: Being a villain never ends well when it comes to season finales, unfortunately for Penelope. It looks like she had the upper hand for awhile -- what with poisoning Joanna and stealing magic from Freya, Dash and Killian -- but Joanna and Wendy prove to be the winners. Unless Penelope somehow withstood a giant furnace, the mean lady is toast.
Mike: He may feel vindicated when Ingrid opens the portal to Asgard, but the triumph doesn't last long. Poor (but deserving) Mike is incinerated like a Nazi in an Indiana Jones movie by whatever is about to come through.
Joanna: Although she is still walking around at the end of the episode, Joanna may be a goner. Penelope tries to kill her nemesis using an IV of that death root. Even though Penelope pre-deceases her target, the poison still might take.
Killian: Mere moments after getting powers back from his burned-up mother, Killian gets knocked out and maybe killed by Dash. The whole Cain and Abel thing gets rough when super-powers come into the picture, doesn't it? Whatever the case, Killian is last-seen floating out to sea on his boat.
Healthy and unhappy
Ingrid: After Mike forces her to open the portal to Asgard (which is down in the Gardiners' basement, in case anyone was wondering), Ingrid just gets to be horrified at the results. She'll probably have to pay in Season 2.
Dash: Angrily confronting one's brother shortly after receiving witchy powers rarely ends well. Poor Dash doesn't know how he maybe-killed Killian by waving his arms, and he obviously feels bad about it. Not so bad to avoid covering his tracks though ...
Wendy: Penelope tries to strangle the cat lady, but it's much harder to kill Wendy than that. This is good, since the witch is down to her last life.
Unhappy and clueless
Freya: Having just realized that Killian is her one true love and called off the wedding to Dash, Freya rushes down to the docks (starting the car with newly returned magic in the process). But Killian is gone -- possibly for good.
Just plain clueless
Victor: Somebody had better clue this guy in stat when "Witches of East End" returns. The poor man has no idea of what's going on.
Resolution to any of these issues will have to wait for Season 2 -- expected at some point in 2014.
