Storyline

The apothecary initially isn't wiling to help the strangers, until she recognizes Lucas's blade as mark of a wizard's guard knight and invites them in apologetically. While they heal Lucas, Dorothy discovers the boy kept in captivity, leading to a fight and a fire in the house, from which Jack and Tip escape, but soon find the lack of medicine has scary effects. Guard captain Eamonn's knight companions fear the quest's dangers and his methods enough to plot killing him off and seek the credit alone, but find he already dealt with one of them. The Wizzard opens the temple at Oz for the surviving witches to properly bury their sister and inherit some of her magic, but denies them privacy and Glinda duly curses the other's failure to pull the ritual off well.

Episode 2
1 July 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Despite a dark opening episode which does not relent in this second episode, you have to hand it to director Tarsem Singh who enlivens the visuals and costumes. He certainly tries to make this less like a Game of Thrones knock off despite the intentions of the various producers and network heads.

Dorothy and Lucas follow the yellow road through the mountains with Eamonn and his men in pursuit who takes his treacherous men to the cesspit of the witches. These men openly and loudly plan to revolt against Eamonn but there is nothing wrong with his hearing.

A lavish funeral is held for the wicked witch of the east, the wizard allows a temple to be unsealed for the ceremony and the use of magic.

Lucas is injured and Dorothy needs to find an apothecary as Lucas needs penicillin. They find a village and are directed to a house with a country witch, Mombi and her 'son' who she gives regularly doses of medicine and has him locked up.

Mombi notices that Lucas has a uniform and sword that signifies that he is part of the wizard's guard, a man who has had a violent past and we see him unleash his rage later in the episode. Dorothy is left unsure just who is her new travelling companion.
