For one of McMann & Tate's longest held and most lucrative accounts, Darrin is now dealing with Terry Warbell, who he has just met. She is the beautiful twenty-four year old daughter of the company's president. Darrin has to break an anniversary luncheon with Samantha to deal with Miss Warbell, who seems more interested in Darrin personally than professionally. Although Samantha is disappointed about lunch, she trusts Darrin. Endora, however, doesn't. In spying on Darrin and Miss Warbell, Endora finds something rather odd about her. Meanwhile, an elderly confused woman is wandering around Morning Glory Circle. Samantha and Endora eventually learn that that elderly woman is the true Miss Warbell. They surmise that the young woman with Darrin is really a 500 year old Crone of Cawdor, who switched bodies with Miss Warbell for 12 hours. Using Miss Warbell's body, the Crone's mission is to be kissed by a mortal before the end of that 12 hours, in order to switch ages with the kisser ... Written by Huggo

The Crone of Cawdor Lived For Another 25 Years!
31 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

A 'bewitched' client, Terry Warbell, a young 24-year-old, is taken over by the Crone of Cawdor, an ancient old woman who must get a kiss before midnight to become young again, and she has Darrin in her sights.

Amusingly notable episode once again for the working together of Endora and Samantha, this time largely engineered by Endora.

Check out Endora portraying a busy-body woman who works in the fabrics industry and realizes Terry Warbell knows nothing about the biz.

Also has some bits with Gladys Kravitz getting incredibly close to witch shenanigans when Terry Warbell shows up at her door as the old crone.

Speaking of the crone, Dorothy Neumann, who plays the part, would live almost thirty years later before passing.
