The Witch Who Came in from the Cold – Episode 7
Intel Log: Episode 7- Radio-Free Trismegistus
Tanya and Gabe appear to have more parallel lives and problems than either of them realize. Gabe visits a hedge witch to find out what elemental hitchhiker is living in his head. Turns out mercury is the element of the hitchhiker’s choice. The question now is if knowing this will help Gabe. Later, Alvarez witnesses Gabe have an “episode” with the hitchhiker and seems to accept Gabe’s explanation. Can he be trusted? Sasha, Tanya’s boss, still has her radio, and it comes to light that not only is he a threat to her at the KGB, but he has ties to Flame. Desperate to achieve their goals, Tanya and Gabe continue to begrudgingly turn to each other for help. Gabe wants the hitchhiker gone, and Tanya wants her radio back. While setting up a plan during a clandestine meeting in a graveyard, Gabe sees tension between Tanya and Nadia and perhaps opportunity. Will be interesting to see. Plan to get the radio which appears to work- they think. Mercury, Flame, Ice, KGB, CIA, ANCHISES, hitchhikers, and transistor radios. Once again, all is not what it seems.
After a week without magic, this episode comes back with a magical bang. Episode 7 of The Witch Who Came In From the Cold brings Tanya and Gabe playing on the intensity between the two characters and leaves readers wondering which direction these two may take. Friend or foe, they know they need each other, and seeing each one use the other is intriguing. Trust is a huge issue in this episode as well. Characters you never thought would work together are, and other characters who appeared to be merely sideline characters are more deeply involved in the magical plot than first thought. It will be very interesting when Fire and Ice are fully explained and if all of the agencies (CIA, KGB, Fire and Ice) will ever end up colliding.
Catch up on episodes 1-7 and get ready for the rest of season one of The Witch Who Came In From the Cold.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
