Endora comes bearing news to Samantha about which she doesn't yet want Darrin to know: Samantha's father, Maurice, is coming by for a visit since he heard that Samantha had gotten married. Samantha receives the news with mixed feelings. On the one hand, she is happy to see her father again. On the other hand, she knows that he will have a fit when he learns that Darrin is not a warlock, but a mortal. That news has the potential to be dangerous as Maurice has a temper, and may use his witchcraft to destroy Darrin. As such, Samantha does whatever she can to keep Darrin away from the house during Maurice's visit, and keep the news that Darrin is a mortal from Maurice. But can Samantha achieve these goals, let alone keep the two apart forever? Written by
