Spoiler-Free Review of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Part 4 on Netflix: Ends the Way it Should

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“Cheerleader by day…Queen of Hell by night.”

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 4 premiered on Netflix on December 31st 2020 with eight final episodes available to stream now. The series stars Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, and Miranda Otto. Each episode runs for approximately 55 minutes. 

It was bitter sweet to discover that this would be the final season of the bewitching darker take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch and I was worried that the show would not be able to wrap everything up to our satisfaction. Either way, I knew we would be jam-packed with dark spells, rituals, and sacrifice along the way for Sabrina Spellman and the rest of our beloved characters.

Here is the trailer:

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 4 packs a punch with a dark and twisted new threat on Greendale, but is eight episodes truly enough to give this show a proper conclusion? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

CAOS part 4 1

Darker with sci-fi horror.

While the earlier seasons of CAOS dipped into more of a bubble gum pop type of horror, the final season doesn’t hold anything back. There is more gore and more stomach-turning moments which actually had me cringing on more than one occasion. It helped that we got several well-placed mentions of classic movies like Alien and The Evil Dead thrown in for good measure, but I was pleasantly surprised by this darker turn, which worked in the show’s favor.

Supporting characters get to shine.

We’ve been getting hints along the way about Rosalind’s potential and we finally devote some time to her character, along with several others. While we couldn’t spend too much time on everyone, I thought that the show made a valiant effort to allow each and every character and every relationship a chance at some type of closure or growth. 

Cameos done to perfection in episode 7.

There will be no spoilers in this review, but I am sure you are already aware of the cameos that will appear in the final season. That being said, I was really happy with episode 7 and I thought that the way everything done was beyond brilliant. They could have easily gone down a cheesier, quicker route and instead they presented us with something truly unique that kept the plot going. 

The Cons:

CAOS part 4 3

Rushed and slightly chaotic.

I get it. There was a lot to cover in just eight episodes, but there was so much overstuffed into this season. I appreciate that the writers were trying to tie up loose ends, but I also thought that some moments of fluff were pointless because the plot was actually really good and captivating on its own.

I also thought that the second half of part 4 was much stronger than the first half.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

I am a huge fan of this series and I thought that the writers really tried their best to give this show a proper sendoff. There were moments that had me terrified, laughing, and crying my eyes out, but I am satisfied with the conclusion and after so many letdowns this past year from series finales, CAOS earned my respect by sticking to a proper conclusion.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (part 4) in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Part 3 on Netflix: Spellbinding Perfection

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“Here’s to Sabrina Spellman!  Cheerleader by day, Queen of Hell by Night!”

Hell looks good on our girl Sabrina Spellman, played brilliantly again by Kiernan Shipka. 

In the midst of all of the dark and twisted spell-casting, there is still room for some fun bubble gum pop moments featuring cheerleading, Riverdale Easter Eggs, and romance.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3 premiered on Netflix on January 24th 2020 with 8 new episodes (55-60 minutes in length).  It stars Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Ross Lynch, and Michelle Gomez.

Part 3 starts off with a bang, as Sabrina is desperate to find a way into Hell to free her boyfriend, Nick.  With the help of her mortal friends, Sabrina crosses paths with some new foes along the way.  Sabrina is destined for the crown, but is quickly challenged again and again.

Her loyalties are tested, but where does her heart truly lie?

Parts 1 and 2 were absolutely fantastic, but can Part 3 measure up?  Let’s find out…

The Pros:

We dive deeper into a magical world filled with history, wickedness, and mystery.

The show seamlessly submerges us into a world with dark magic wedged into every nook and cranny of history.  We learn about Dante’s Inferno, vampires, banshees, voodoo, Pagan gods, and more.  While it may initially seem like this is quite a lot to cram into 8 episodes, each adventure worked so well with the plot, luring us in that much more.

New and interesting characters.

The show already has a large cast with amazing characters, but some of the new additions really added to the charm of the show.  But let’s not forget about Lilith aka Mary Wardwell, who continues to be a phenomenal scene stealer.

I also really appreciated the time spent toward developing some of the other characters, specifically Theo and Prudence.

Some of the new villains prove to be quite formidable, constantly putting our girl Sabrina Spellman to the test, which provides us with a lot of edge-of-your-seat moments and exciting twists.  More please!

Lots of fun.

Even though Sabrina is now the Queen of Hell, she still decides to try out for the cheerleading squad with Ros.  We get some fantastic musical numbers that gave me a 90’s nostalgia along with some crafty Riverdale Easter Eggs, which is known as the murder capital of the world.  Where’s vigilante Archie when you need him?

I thought that this poppy fun feel really balanced out the darker elements of the show, giving me a Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe while still casting its way toward its own magical identity.

The Cons:

None.  Well, I guess if I need to pick something, it would be that I wanted more episodes. 

Parts 1 and 2 featured 16 episodes split up into 8 at a time.  Parts 3 and 4 will follow the same format.  We will get the next 8 episodes on July 3rd 2020, which is a long time to wait to catch up with our favorite witches!

So am I in or out?

Of course I’m in…100 percent and more!  This show gets better and better.  Countdown until the next witching hour!

If you aren’t watching this show yet, I absolutely recommend it.  It is so much fun and the characters are bewitching…even without the magic.  Enjoy witches!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 8: “You Didn’t Deserve That”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 8, we were reminded that one doesn’t always get what he or she deserves, but we need to keep fighting one day at a time even if we can’t always tip the scale back to make things truly right.

Please note major spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Our Father, Who Aren’t in Heaven,” Dean comes up with a plan to find Chuck’s weakness.  Meanwhile, Adam finally returns, the new Queen of Hell is revealed, and Eileen tries to work a case of her own.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 8 are:

5

“No, I’m saying he has a weak spot.”

Dean may be on to something here even if he doesn’t know what an Achilles heel is.  He thinks that they can use the Demon tablet to find out Chuck’s weakness, but they need someone who can read it.

Donatello makes another welcomed appearance, but things get tricky when Chuck begins to talk through him, reminding the Winchesters that Chuck/God is always watching.

4

“You could do worse.”

The will they-won’t they vibe continues between Sam and Eileen and Dean takes a moment to tell Sam that he can be happy with her.  Sure, they have both tried the family life before, claiming it wasn’t for them, but Eileen gets the hunter lifestyle and would be a welcomed addition.

Although this might be tricky now that Chuck/God has just lured Eileen and Sam into a parking lot alone.  What are Chuck’s plans for Eileen?  Will Sam lose Eileen again before he gets a chance to tell her how he feels?

I can’t wait to find out!

3

“Hello boys.”

After traveling to Hell to find Michael, the boys run into the new Queen of HellRowena.  They are clearly in shock to see Rowena again, but she feels right at home being dead and I have to say that she makes a pretty bad ass queen.

That being said, I sort of felt like Rowena’s re-appearance on the show took away from her sacrifice.  Rowena’s sacrifice really helped her character reach its peak and now she’s kind of right back where she started again.

And if we can see Rowena again, where the hell is Crowley?

2

“I will help you.”

After Castiel shows Michael the truth about Chuck/God, Michael agrees to help them.  He explains that there is a spell to weaken Chuck, but they need the nectar from the Leviathan blossom in order for the spell to work.

And of course, this nectar can only be found in Purgatory, so it looks like Dean and Castiel will be making a special trip back there.

This should give us some more cameos and adventures along the way.  Next stop, Purgatory!

1

“You didn’t deserve that.”

Adam finally makes his return on the show and Dean and Sam learn that Michael does allow him to have control here and there.  I guess being locked away in a cage for so many years can get really lonely.  Sam and Dean apologize to Adam and tell him that they were wrong and he didn’t deserve that, but I’m not sure one can truly accept an apology for being banished to rot away in Hell.  Family…you gotta love them.

Either way, I was glad to see Adam back on the show because I often used to feel like the writers just sort of abandoned his story completely and moved on, so I thought this was an important connection for the final season.

Overall, the episode felt slightly transitional and I am more interested in Chuck/God’s deadly adventures at a casino, but it looks like Sam will be getting up close and personal with him when new episodes return on January 17th.

Stay tuned SPN family!
