Okay spoiler tag till it airs.
The Phantom and the Sorceress
It was a pretty good episode. I am a big fan of Team Magic, so episodes that focus on them I am going to enjoy. I was excited for a moment we saw Della for a moment, one of the things of my wish list is for Della to interact with Violet and Lena. When well that happen? They both lack a positive female role model.
So the Phantom Blot, I like that he has a sympathetic backstory, you can understand the reason for his rage. All things being equal, Phantom vs Magica, I would totally be on the Phantom's side.
Gladstone in this episode, he is the most Gladstone as he as been in the whole series, closest to the comic book version than he has ever been. Obnoxious, lazy, contempt for Donald, this is the Gladstone I know.
This was a big turning point in Lena's arc, new design, complete freedom from Magica, if she still needs a magic teacher, I wonder if that is how Poe gets involved. The fans are divided on Lena's new design, personally I am fine with it, it will take me time to get used to it, she looks a little too much like Bride of Frankenstein, but I am sure I will get used to it. '
Great episode, can't wait to see what they do next.
I loved this episode!
The dislike for Lena's new design in parts of the fandom is quite surprising to me. I think she looks amazing in her powered-up form. Frank Angones has already confirmed on Tumblr that Lena only takes this form when she draws upon the full extent of her magical potential, so those who do not like this design needn't worry.
