Okay, people, on this day one year ago, we saw the ending to two awesome shows. One of them was an animated cartoon, while the other was an adaptation of the life’s work of a guy that’s dragging his heels on finishing his work. Rather than talk about the ending to Game of Thrones since there’s enough hate for that, I wanted to talk about the end to the other good show on May 19th, 2019.
I actually debated on whether or not I should review this episode now or wit for it to premiere in the West. However, I realized that you should never look a gift horse in the mouth and enjoy that we got a new episode of The Owl House. An episode that sees Luz take the next step in her magic training in a good old fashioned magic boot camp.
It’s mid-season finale time for The Owl House, and with no word on when the other episodes come out, the show has to stick the landing. The show’s already given us great moments and big mysteries, which I have been avidly keeping track of. In “Escape of the Palisman”, the writers touch on a recurring mystery in the series. In addition, they set up a new one alongside it.
Over the last few months, I’ve covered a lot of fan fiction revolving around Star vs. The Forces of Evil. It’s my way of dealing with the need I have for more Star vs. content because, despite enjoying the finale, I was left wanting more. Lucky for me, a lot of the fan fics I find end up being pretty good. However, I don’t think I’ve found a fan fic quite like Royal Secrets by BlackWolfWrites.
So despite being banned from Hexside, Gus sneaks Luz back in so she can impress his club. Meanwhile, Eda tries to make amends for her past at school.
Ah, the body swap/life swap scenario. It’s a trope so popular, it has its own page on tvtropes.org. When two or more characters think the other has it easy, they swap places for a while. They then realize the hardships they each deal with, learn to appreciate their lives, and make up. I’ve seen it done many times in cartoons, to the point where it no longer has the same appeal. As a result, this week’s episode of The Owl House, while funny, didn’t fully hit the mark for me. But was still funny.
Amity’s been in a lot of episodes of The Owl House so far. While at first she seemed set to be the jealous rival to Luz, we’ve seen there’s a lot more to her. So, as I do with a lot of characters I like, I’ve started analyzing her personality, and what I’ve found has been interesting. However, this episode ultimately gave me a clearer look at what makes her tick.
After taking a break last week for Valentine’s Day, The Owl House is back and ready for more supernatural hi-jinks. So far, the show’s done a great job of establishing its lore and character backstories: the Emperor’s Coven, Eda’s curse, and the show’s take on magic. However, I think that is the episode that begins to really connect everything together. And it does all that while making me think of the film Monster House.
When Gus and Willow tell her of Bonesboro’s annual Covention, where students can learn all about the Covens they can join, she begs Eda to go. They end up going, and we get another piece to the puzzles of Eda’s past and the world of the Boiling Isles.
In what may be the best episode yet in the series, Luz and King are trapped in the Owl House on a rainy day with a mysterious intruder hunting them. Can the two manage to defeat this creature? And will Luz finally use magic?
So, after months of waiting and building of hype, is The Owl House everything that I wanted? Yes and no, but mostly yes. I know I said this about Amphibia, but The Owl House is also the next Gravity Falls.

So I was browsing through Twitter when I saw Alex Hirsch post this image of this Christian news site warning parents about the Owl House and saying how its teaching kids about witchcraft. So I decided to write about why it’s alright for people to be considered weird in this world.
