Abby: David, stop hovering and come in. David: I can't sleep downstairs with that head. Abby: You could go home. David: I'm not going to go home and leave you with that head. I'm a nice guy.
[S6E14] Head Games
Well, well, well! Things are definitely coming to a head. We learned the biggest secret of all last episode. We found out that Hannah and Sam had a sexual relationship the resulted in a child name Frank. Looking back over the last 6 season, and season 1 in particular, Sam did treat Frank like crap. But we never really knew where that animosity came from. Was Sam angry because Frank existed and he was a reminder of that time they spent together. He was tormented by it to an extent but he was also not a good guy. I mean he did have Frank kill Lila to cover up the pregnancy. We will probably never know because all we are learning about Sam is after he died.
The banker enters the office to see the many changes Michael has made to the office, including replacing Stanley Hudson with an attractive young man and having Dwight pose as the branch HR representative. The second ruse is exposed when Toby returns to his desk, however. Pam also pretends that she is conducting international business and says hello in as many languages she can think of, while Andy claims that they are now the official paper supplier of the NFL. The banker asks Toby about any misconduct in the company (for example, time wasting), and after every question, several flashbacks are shown from previous episodes regarding the topic being discussed. Toby is very vague during the questioning and then admits to the documentary crew in a talking head that he doesn't want to lie, but "I don't want to tell the truth."
Piper has enrolled Wyatt in a preschool, but he is unwilling to play with the other children. As Piper speaks of her worries with Phoebe and Paige, Wyatt orbs back to the manor. The sisters orb after him and find that a door has appeared next to the manor's stairs. The door opens and a man calls for help; the Headless Horseman appears behind him and chops off his head. His head can still speak.
The head says his name is Sigmund and explains that the rest of him at Magic School. He says Gideon needs help. Leo orbs in and Sigmund recognizes him. Leo says that Magic School is supposed to be protected from evil. The sisters and Leo go through the door, with Sigmund's head with them. Leo says that Gideon was his mentor and had advocated his and Piper's marriage before the rest of the Elders. The sisters, Leo and Sigmund's head meet with Gideon, who says the students had been pulling pranks and finally one conjured the Headless Horseman, who is cutting off teachers' heads. He believes the guilty student is influenced by a demon. Gideon tells the sisters that they can find what they are looking for on the grounds of Magic School.
Piper and Leo are watching Wyatt, who is being much more sociable here than at the non-magical preschool. A mother comes in and describes her near-miss with the Headless Horseman. An alarm sounds, and the Headless Horseman appears and cuts off Piper's head.
Paige orders her students out the door and into the manor. She says that one of them is responsible for the Headless Horseman. The students argue among themselves. The door opens and the Horseman rides out. It cuts off no one's head, but runs out the conservatory door. Gideon offers to help Paige find the Horseman; no one outside would be protected and would be killed if beheaded. They find him and Gideon opens a door, returning the Horseman to Magic School, but a mortal killer has been killed.
Chris claims that the demon was able to scan for evil and could possibly find out who was going to turn Wyatt. Gideon says that he had promised that Magic School would never cause harm and that he now must close it. Paige talks him into changing his mind. The students in the manor suddenly freeze and an unseen figure grabs Piper's head. Paige and Gideon conclude that one of the students did this and is not actually frozen.
Inside Magic School, the Horseman attacks again, and cuts off the heads of Paige and Phoebe.In the manor, "Paige" comes out of the door and urges Leo to orb the other students away. Once Gideon is alone, "Paige" morphs into Zachary and attacks Gideon. Zachary feels that he's being held at magic school against his will and being kept from his family and friends.
The Charmed Ones' heads say a spell and vanquish the Horseman. When he explodes, the sisters are made whole again. They convince Zachary to let Gideon go by explaining the similarities of their having to deal with magic in their lives and his.
I write about TV shows like House Of The Dragon, The Witcher, The Rings Of Power, Stranger Things, Yellowjackets, Severance and many others. I also cover movies, video games, comic books and novels, largely in the fantasy, science-fiction, horror and superhero genres. Some of my favorite video games to play and write about include Dark Souls, Elden Ring, Call Of Duty, XCOM, Mass Effect, Titanfall, The Witcher and many other action, RPG and shooter games. My favorite films include Braveheart, Tropic Thunder, Arsenic and Old Lace, Schindler's List and far too many others to list here. I often discuss the \"pop culture wars\" and how shifting cultural values impact our art and entertainment. I prefer deep conversations and debate to shouting matches, and welcome readers from all walks of life and all religious and political backgrounds to join in this conversation. Thanks for reading!
