Last time on The Magicians, the whole gang made it to Fillory, fulfilling Q’s lifelong wish. Q and Julia (Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve) went via 1942 following a young Jane Chatwin (Rose Liston). After marveling at the beauty, they ended up in the books saving her from a trap. They ran into old Jane Chatwin, who poofed them to a modern day Fillory (which looked like a desolate forest-y slum). There they reunited with the rest who had found the right fountain, and set out to retrieve the specialty god-killing knife they ordered 74 years ago. The knife was still there, but the price was marriage of his daughter of the real king… who turned out to be Eliot (Hale Appleman). Except… nobody could hold the knife – not enough power. They found Ember (Dominic Burgess) who gave them his magical power semen. Blech… And as a favor, he lifted the fog of Julia’s memory. Turns out, she was raped and her friends were killed by Reynard the Fox (Mackenzie Astin). Marina (Kacey Rohl) helped her clean it up. Alice drank the semen (blech), and they confronted the beast, who quickly killed Alice, Eliot, and Margo (Summer Bishil), and sliced off Penny’s (Arjun Gupta) hands. Julia put the knife to the Beast’s (Charles Mesure) throat, wanting to deal. She saved Q but took off with the Beast!

Spoilers ahead for tonight’s episode!

Last time on The Magicians, Julia (Stella Maeve) tried to use her womanly wiles on Pete (David Call), so he would help her find another witchy group. Quentin’s (Jason Ralph) father was diagnosed with cancer and refusing treatment, so Quentin tried to find a magical cure via the use of an enchanted puppy who died anyway (noooo!!!). Everyone was trying to find a mentor. Eliot and Margo (Hale Appleman and Summer Bishil) wanted Alice’s (Olivia Taylor Dudley) aunt, but in the end all their machinations and ass-kissing failed. Penny (Arjun Gupta) accidentally traveled to Fillory, where he saw the Beast and a girl chained up.

Last week on The Magicians, Quentin (Jason Ralph) spent most of the episode pissing off the women in his life. First, he told Julia (Stella Maeve) she wasn’t good enough to get into Brakebills (ouch!). Then, by trapping Alice’s (Olivia Taylor Dudley) brother Charlie in a niffin-box (because he’s a niffin), thereby preventing her from ever getting him back. Alice leaves the school. But before all that, The Sorting Hat aka the magic specialty examination, labels the kids – Penny (Arjun Gupta) is a Traveler, Alice can bend light, and Quentin can do nothing… for now. They go live with Eliot (Hale Appleman) in the physical cottage (Alice for all of one day).
