(S01E09) "Do you remember what happened to Gloria that day? Because I do. We both have our secrets, Bun. I'll keep yours if you keep mine." - Darryl
Well, darn. As I mentioned last week, Eastwick keeps getting better and better. This week's episode was the best yet! Funny, dramatic, good characters, and some tense action at the end. And the best part is that the witches are finally realizing their powers and using them for good. If the series continued, we might see that they'd be tempted to use their powers for more nefarious purpose.
We also saw Darryl get a little more evil-ish with Bun. It made me realize that perhaps he's not the gadabout town guy who just loves women and being a big-shot. Then again, maybe he's not as bad a guy as I think (see above quote).
When Darryl appeals to Kat about healing Greta, he says, "I know powerful women, and you are an extraordinarily powerful woman. In fact, you may, be the most powerful of all."
He also tells her she can control it and use it to do incredible things, and that she has to accept her destiny. "You have the power to perform miracles," he says. You get the feeling he'll help these women build up their powers, and then maybe use them for not so good purposes.
Other things that could happen if Eastwick continued:
- Joanna and Max getting together.
- Jamie helping the witches after learning more about his mom.
- Roxie connecting with her mom (ok, we got some of that tonight).
I really loved the last few minutes, with the witches all working together to find Mia, pull her out of the ice, and bring her back to life. Also, the scene where Kat realizes she needs an emotional connection to the person in order to heal her, so Darryl starts telling her about Greta.
Great show! Are you sad to see Eastick go?
