Last week on The Magicians, I witnessed a great moment in television history, as Eliot (Hale Appleman) prepped for a duel with the King of Loria by singing “One Day More” from Les Miserables, only my favorite Broadway show of all time. Eliot fought with a magic sword until magic “pooped” out. Margo (Summer Bishil) made a deal with the fairies to restore the wellspring in exchange for Fen (Brittany Curran) and Eliot’s child. Eliot found out he can have a husband too, so decided to marry the king and unite the kingdoms. Julia, Kady, and Penny (Stella Maeve, Jade Tailor, Arjun Gupta) kidnapped Reynard’s son, who showed up, almost killed Q (Julia’s fault), and got him back. Q (Jason Ralph) freed Niffin Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley).

Last time on The Magicians, the whole gang decided to rob a bank because… money. The bank had magic wards to get through. Margo (Summer Bishil) led the charge, and it took bees, a literal disco ball, and Eliot (Hale Appleman) dying (not totally) to get the gold. Julia’s (Stella Maeve) baby was exorcised at a price and Fillory filled its coffers.

Spoilers for tonight’s episode below.

Last time on The Magicians, Quentin (Jason Ralph) tried to summon Niffin Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley), first via interpretive dance, and then with a spell with her dad. That failed as did the attempt with her mother. He discovered that Alice isn’t dead, just living in the tattoo on his back. Prince Ess from Loria kidnaped the castle once Margo (Summer Bishil) rejected his order of giving him half the wellspring and then marriage. She slept with him and mulled the offer until Penny (Arjun Gupta) showed them that it was a trick. She declared war on Loria. Julia found a woman who also had Raynard’s baby because of rape, and she chained Julia up. Kady (Jade Tailor) saved her and they stole the creature, a Haxenpaxen, who was chained too shielding the lady’s whereabouts. Once gone, Raynard found her and killed her.

Last week on The Magicians, it was the showcase showdown for the Beast (Charles Mesure) and Reynard (Mackenzie Astin), and everything got totally messed up… except for one super heroic sacrifice by Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley). Marina (Kacey Rohl), Julia (Stella Maeve), and the Beast got Reynard right where they wanted him, but then Penny (Arjun Gupta) swooped in and stole the beast (and Julia by accident). Marina was left alone with Reynard, and he literally chewed her up and spit her out. Back in Fillory, Ember (Dominic Burgess) took a dump in the wellspring, and the gang fought the Beast. Alice let herself be consumed so she could kill him, and Quentin (Jason Ralph) had to release his fire demon on her to prevent her from destroying Eliot and Margo (Hale Appleman, Summer Bishil).
