Stephen makes a surprise visit to a viewer's house: they have won a Tricky TV contest, and the grand prize is that their mother will be Stephen's assistant for the show. Mrs. Drew is initially nervous, but agrees to take part. The first order of business is to get her a proper costume. She is briefly hidden behind a cloth, and when it drops she is wearing a sequinned bikini, fishnet tights, and high heels. Next, Stephen has her lie on a long table, and makes her float into the air, then vanish in a puff of smoke. Later he takes to the high seas for some pirate-themed magic. Mrs. Drew reappears in a treasure chest, only to be clapped in irons, and locked in a barrel full of swords. Stephen gives viewers magic tips in the Secret Circle. Finally, Stephen asks Mrs. Drew to help him with a dangerous closing illusion, "The Slicer ": locked inside a tall cabinet, she's sliced into nine pieces in front of the amazed audience.
Did You Know?
Stephen's volunteer assistant really was unprepared: she didn't know her children had entered the contest, and she only rehearsed the costume change. The other illusions were performed live, and the nervous look on her face as she climbs into "The Slicer" is real. See more
