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

Did You Know?


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. (Non-Americans - see what happened there: route/root! OK, it wasn't all that clever!) See more »


When the agents first go see Tamzin Dove, all the cars are driving on the left side of the road instead of the right, and the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the vehicle, thus the shot was clearly mirrored/reversed. See more »


Tamzin Dove: Killing spells are secret. But this is a public binding spell and it's similar. What's your name?
Kimball Cho: What's it to you?
Patrick Jane: Kendall Cho.
Kimball Cho: Hey!

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?
