This recap of The Bastard Son & the Devil Himself season 1, episode 3 contains spoilers.

You know how some people talk or walk in their sleep? Well, Jessica changes shape into hers. Lying next to Kieran, who she obviously spent the night with despite the fact that he seems to have seen her smile at Hazel’s death, she transforms into the blood witch she shot, snoring loudly, then coming back to herself with a smile. Kieran doesn’t seem confident in his choices, but we’ve all had weird one-night stands, I guess.

The Bastard Son & the Devil Himself Episode 3 Recap

But it’s a double dose of bad news to start this third episode. As we have seen in The bastard son and the devil himself episode 2, Rowan, Kieran’s father, is dead, as is Nathan’s Gran, both because of Soul, who nevertheless blames Marcus. He personally shows up to retrieve Nathan as he decided to take the child and use him to care for Marcus now instead of waiting for him to complete his training.

But Marcus ambushes the convoy in the form of an eagle Ceelia spotted in the previous episode, killing everyone in the car in front and leaving only Nathan, Jessica, and Soul alive. They manage to get back to London in a stolen car, where Soul calms Nathan down, ties him to a bed, and tattoos magical symbols on his chest and finger using a long needle and the bottle of blood that he collected from Rowan. The spell is called a witch’s bottle, black magic, and forbidden because of the terrible things it does that must be done to cast it. As the second soul departs, Nathan breaks free from his restraints and escapes. As he exits, he is accosted by a security guard who is then torn to pieces in a stunning visual effect by Annalise’s power.

Naturally, we return to Nathan defeating Niall to explain how Annalize got to this position. We see her witnessing this assault, questioning Soul about Nathan’s whereabouts, frolicking with a classmate, speculating what his power might be before his gift ceremony, and then finding out what it’s all about. quite by accident by causing his pet rat to explode when he bites her. We see – again – a more controlled version of it plaguing David when he encounters her in the car. Through some research, Annalize learns that this power is called “decimation” – basically, tearing people into as many pieces as possible (the explainer artwork looks exactly like what happened to the security guard earlier).

Speaking of this security guard, Steve, we also see that Annalize knew him personally. We see her decimate it again – man, that visual effect rules – and then pick up where we left off, with Nathan and Annalize fleeing from Jessica.

With the chemistry between Jay Lycurgo and Nadia Parkes Crackling immediately, they try to catch up on everything from Soul’s forbidden spell prophecy to the map on Nathan’s hand that Mercury drew – they ask this map for help and it begins to contort itself to guide them. somewhere. Without better options, they follow.

The map leads them to a door hidden behind a wall in an apartment building – the equivalent of Platform Nine and Three-Quarters from this show, I suppose. Inside the apartment is a rather laid back stoner named Gabriel, who works for Mercury. Nathan needs his family’s blood before his Giving Day, which Gabriel seems pretty sure Mercury can provide since she keeps blood samples from all the witch families, and he even suggests she might be able to. changing Annalise’s power, since Steve’s decimation made her fearful of herself. Nathan and Annalize have to undress in the bathroom so Gabriel can clean their clothes, and they almost had sex until Gabriel interrupts them.

Before long, Soul and a few Council henchmen blow through the apartment. The only escape is to jump out the window while biting on a magic orb, though Gabriel only has two, so he tries to leave Annalize behind, especially when he finds out she’s Soul’s daughter. But she refuses to take no for an answer, and all three end up collapsing out of the tower window, presumably on their way to Paris.
