Storyline

Preparing for her father's monthly visit, Sabrina anticipates the teenage trauma of introducing her father to her boyfriend (actually, Edward and Harvey do reasonably well), but isn't prepared for the teenage trauma of meeting your divorced father's new girlfriend, an attractive supernatural lawyer named Gail. Initially hostile, Sabrina is persuaded by her aunts to see reason and tries to make amends by asking whether Edward and Gail plan to get married. When they simultaneously answer "Yes" (Gail) and "No" (Edward), Gail furiously dives into Sabrina's magic book. Written by Arturo Domínguez

A Tale of Gale
9 September 2018 | by paulmdowlingSee all my reviews

The matching choker Sabrina wears with her monochrome vanilla yellow pants and shirt is really arresting. Did she buy the whole outfit together? Was the discovery of the choker a happy co-incidence or did she really spend some time hunting it down?

If you watch old episodes of intervention a divorce in someone's childhood occurs in 80% of the episodes. This gives you some idea of how traumatic it is for a child to experience. Yes; parents can do a lot to mitigate this and many parents really try but its almost impossible for children to see their parents as two separate people who lead their own separate lives before forming a unit. They see something whole breaking a part rather than two separate pieces disconnecting. The evidence of trauma can be seen in Sabrina's reaction to her father's new girlfriend.

Its always strange to me when STTW mixes more dramatic themes into it's magic universe. There's nothing funny about domestic violence and there's certainly nothing funny about imagining how it goes down in the other realm.

This is isn't a bad episode by any means but its just a little, I don't know... stuffy.
