In a kerfuffle between Tabitha and Adam over the doll, Tabitha performs a little witchcraft to make the doll fly through the air, the flying doll directly in front of Darrin's mother. Unable to hide the fact that a doll actually did fly through the air, Samantha has to come up with a quick explanation. What she tells her mother-in-law is that she must have some supernatural powers associated with the passing down of the doll, that such powers are probably fleeting, and that it best either not to tell anyone for fear of being labeled crazy or to flaunt the powers while she has it.

Samantha Finds A Way
16 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tabatha seems to have made Darrin's mother puzzled by making the antique doll fly, which leaves Samantha with a problem to fix that eventually leads to another problem after each strategy. Darrin's mother keeps thinking she has supernatural powers after Samantha's first trick and eventually has trouble. Anyway, I like how Samantha eventually manages set things in a working order. I was even more pleased to see how Samantha tried to keep Darrin happy after her mother cast a spell near the end. I even hope that Samantha's mother does not come over for quite some time since the two of them looked rather nice together at the very end of the episode.
