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

To help any who are confused by the treatment of Gaelic in this episode: When Tamzin Dove refers to "the Cowan" she is saying "cubhann" which means "narrow minded" in Scots Gaelic. This should not be confused with the English "coven" (a group of witches - i.e. the opposite!) which may, by a roundabout route, come from a related linguistic root. See more
