Last time on The Magicians, Julia and Quentin (Stella Maeve, Jason Ralph) made it to the Underworld via dragon, and spent some time with the real Richard (Mackenzie Astin) and the dead hedge witches to find where the shades were kept. They found Julia’s shade… and Alice’s too. They escaped taking the Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) shade also. Penny (Arjun Gupta) teamed up with his teen supervisor, Sylvia (Roan Curtis), to get into the Poison room. Senator Gaines (Christopher Gorham), horrified by his father, teamed up with Kady (Jade Tailor). After King Idri (Leonard Roberts) and others were turned into rats, Eliot threw Margo (Hale Appleman, Summer Bishil) in the dungeon because of the fairy deal, then got kicked out of Fillory for introducing democracy. Margo went to fairy land to rescue Fen (Brittany Curran).

Last time on The Magicians, Penny (Arjun Gupta) got his first task, to retrieve a way overdue library book. The borrower had advice for Kady (Jade Tailor) and put a spell on the card, so another librarian killed himself rather than be forced to open the “Poison Room.” Eliot (Hale Appleman) was acting like “Groomzilla.” Margo (Summer Bishil) confessed to Fen (Brittany Curran), who told her to fix it before being kidnapped by the fairies. Quentin took drugs and saw Julia’s shade in a vision, who asked him for help. Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) helped Julia and Q (Stella Maeve, Jason Ralph) talk to another version of Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) who knows about shades (they have all lived and died 39 times). She told Q that they are in the Underworld and they need an ancient one, a dragon, to get there and come back.

Last week on The Magicians, I witnessed a great moment in television history, as Eliot (Hale Appleman) prepped for a duel with the King of Loria by singing “One Day More” from Les Miserables, only my favorite Broadway show of all time. Eliot fought with a magic sword until magic “pooped” out. Margo (Summer Bishil) made a deal with the fairies to restore the wellspring in exchange for Fen (Brittany Curran) and Eliot’s child. Eliot found out he can have a husband too, so decided to marry the king and unite the kingdoms. Julia, Kady, and Penny (Stella Maeve, Jade Tailor, Arjun Gupta) kidnapped Reynard’s son, who showed up, almost killed Q (Julia’s fault), and got him back. Q (Jason Ralph) freed Niffin Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley).

Last time on The Magicians, Julia (Stella Maeve) had no shade and therefore no limits. Quentin (Jason Ralph) barely saved her from Reynard (Mackenzie Astin) because of her lack of judgment. He plopped her in Fillory for Margo to watch her (as if she did not have enough to worry about). Margo tried to reason with the trees to no avail, so Julia blew them up. Margo (Summer Bishil) threw her in a dungeon. Eliot (Hale Appleman) finally woke up after a kick ass speech from Margo to Fen (Brittany Curran). Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) took Q’s body for a spin for a Niffin escape. She was told to free herself from Q for the answers. Penny (Arjun Gupta) declared his love for Kady (Jade Tailor) and sentenced himself to a life of servitude to help her. He went into Q’s head and saw Alice who tried to kill him.

Last time on The Magicians, the whole gang decided to rob a bank because… money. The bank had magic wards to get through. Margo (Summer Bishil) led the charge, and it took bees, a literal disco ball, and Eliot (Hale Appleman) dying (not totally) to get the gold. Julia’s (Stella Maeve) baby was exorcised at a price and Fillory filled its coffers.

Last time on The Magicians, Quentin (Jason Ralph) tried to summon Niffin Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley), first via interpretive dance, and then with a spell with her dad. That failed as did the attempt with her mother. He discovered that Alice isn’t dead, just living in the tattoo on his back. Prince Ess from Loria kidnaped the castle once Margo (Summer Bishil) rejected his order of giving him half the wellspring and then marriage. She slept with him and mulled the offer until Penny (Arjun Gupta) showed them that it was a trick. She declared war on Loria. Julia found a woman who also had Raynard’s baby because of rape, and she chained Julia up. Kady (Jade Tailor) saved her and they stole the creature, a Haxenpaxen, who was chained too shielding the lady’s whereabouts. Once gone, Raynard found her and killed her.

Last week on The Magicians, it was the showcase showdown for the Beast (Charles Mesure) and Reynard (Mackenzie Astin), and everything got totally messed up… except for one super heroic sacrifice by Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley). Marina (Kacey Rohl), Julia (Stella Maeve), and the Beast got Reynard right where they wanted him, but then Penny (Arjun Gupta) swooped in and stole the beast (and Julia by accident). Marina was left alone with Reynard, and he literally chewed her up and spit her out. Back in Fillory, Ember (Dominic Burgess) took a dump in the wellspring, and the gang fought the Beast. Alice let herself be consumed so she could kill him, and Quentin (Jason Ralph) had to release his fire demon on her to prevent her from destroying Eliot and Margo (Hale Appleman, Summer Bishil).
