Patrick discovers missing football talent Cody Ellis' body in a wood, the victim of a black magic sacrifice. This points to local self-declared Wiccan witch, Tamzin Dove, who put a death spell on him for allegedly torturing her cat. Other murder leads are Cody's fist fights in the team and with school coach Dieter, who has a history of inappropriate corporal punishments, but claims Cody was 'mad'. Outstaged kid-brother Brad Elkins leads Patrick to more secrets. Written by KGF Vissers

Anti-wiccan hatefest that should be burned
26 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not know if the rest of this series turned out to be any good, because this episode made me want to punch Simon Baker. Not only is it an hour-long attempt by the writers to see how many religious epithets they could work into the dialogue, but it contains blatant lies against Wiccans. We do not cast death curses, ever. We do not cast mind control spells. We do not educate children in our ways without parental permission, because that is how Christians spread their religion. And we NEVER do magick for the sole purpose of showing off. The only thing that saved this episode from destroying the entire series was the fact that they chose NOT to make the Wiccan the killer. If the writers had made a similar episode concerning a Christian, the show would have been shut down. Why are we any different?
