The Witch Who Came in from the Cold – Episode 5
Intel Log: Episode 5 – The Golem
Gabe enlists Jordan’s help in digging up a grave. Lead by the hitchhiker, Gabe insists digging up the grave will help him find the Golem. Jordan is afraid of getting caught and insists the Golem is nothing but a myth. However, the more they dig, Gabe’s reactions to the hitchhiker and magic become more severe. (Eighteen hours earlier) ANCHISES continues to be mentioned by Americans. A surveillance mission by Josh and Gabe in the square is thwarted by the local police, who won’t let them “fix their car.” Gabe has an episode that Josh reports to their boss, Frank, who informs Gabe that his spells, if not medical, are a problem and he needs to get them under control because he is out of chances. Tanya is dismayed by the information Gabe shared with her in the last episode and decides to see for herself. Sneaking onto the barge, she confirms what Gabe told her and uncovers something that now has her questioning both the Ice and Flame. In a flashback, Jordan’s connection to Gabe is further revealed, having begun in Cairo and not Prague. We now know where and how Gabe inherited the hitchhiker. Back at the graveyard, Alestair arrives to help Jordan and Gabe escape police, but soon realize there is something much more sinister they need to flee.
Episode 5 of The Witch Who Came In From the Cold , The Golem, is full of action and provides a lot of information about more complex connection between characters than we have seen thus far. The description in the writing brings this episode to life. With all that happens concerning magic, the way this episode is written allows you to easily visualize what is happening. There was some back and forth in time with this episode, but it was well done and did not distract from the story. At this point in the series, the story continues to flow, inform, and entertain seamlessly. The pace is such that it is not so rapid or scattered that you get lost in the story nor so slow that you lose interest.
Catch up on episodes 1-5 and get ready for episode 6 next week. I know I can’t wait!
