To prepare for the end to Disney’s The Owl House, I’m doing a series of deep character dives into my favorite characters and how they’ve grown.

As Eda comes to grips with her loss of power and the possibility that King and Luz might leave her one day, a face from her past shows up to recruit her into a rebellion against Emperor Belos.
So, I went ahead and watched the new episode of The Owl House on the DisneyNOW App on my phone hours before it would air on TV. I’m glad that I did, because I would need the extra time to process what I just saw. Heck, I’m still trying to process everything! But that’s not going to stop me from writing a review of what may be the biggest episode thus far. If you haven’t seen it yet, then turn back now, because this will be filled with spoilers. Spoilers, and tears, because this episode gets very sad as a witch loses a teacher.
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.
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.
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?
The last episode of The Owl House taught Luz that she must be patient in learning the art of magic. Now we get to see her relearn that lesson as she sneaks into the Boiling Isles version of Hogwarts.
I’ve seen a lot of great stories that revolve around a special Chosen One meant to fulfill an important destiny. I think, from a cultural perspective, they’re meant to make everyone feel special and capable of being a chosen one. However, the last few years of TV seem to be going in the opposite direction, acting like prophecies and chosen one’s are bunk. Now The Owl House is following that route in its second episode. An episode which, I may end, seemed like a step down from the premiere.
