Darrin is worried about his parents' impending visit as it will be the first since Tabatha started using witchcraft. It is even worse timing as Samantha and Darrin find out Tabatha is at a stage called "wishcraft" where anyone she wishes to be near her will automatically appear, that person who seems to be Darrin more often than not. For support in dealing with Tabatha, Samantha calls in a reinforcement in the form of her mother. Having Endora in the house with his parents doesn't sit well with Darrin. As such, Samantha and Darrin get into an argument about the issue, which in turn raises Endora's back not only regarding Darrin, but Darrin's mother. In this in-law feud, it's Mrs. Stephens Sr. that may need more convincing than anyone that everything is AOK between Darrin and Samantha than what the two can say or do in front of her.

Darrin's Parents are coming for a visit while Tabitha is going through the stage of involuntary "wishcraft".
6 May 2006 | by dale_brown57See all my reviews

This episode is hilarious as Samantha and Darrin try to hide baby Tabitha's budding witchcraft from Darrin's visiting parents. Mrs. Stephens believes that there is something wrong between Darrin and Sam and that they are having a fight. Trouble ensues went Endora tries to meddle and make trouble for Darrin. Figuring she would teach him a lesson for making Sam cry, she makes it rain on him until he apologizes. Mrs. Stephens thinks that she is losing her mind(With a little witchery help from Endora and Sam). It all comes out nicely in the end. You simply must watch to see how it all turns out. It's funny and heartwarming as Mrs. Stephens learns that things aren't always what they seem. You'll get a kick out of it, too.
