[Open on the Owl House living room, where Eda and Owlbert are playing a card game with Luz and King watching. Eda shuffles her hand, and the eyes on the cards look up at her. Owlbert, wearing a green visor, narrows his eyes and hoots.]

Eda:
Watch closely, Luz. Hexes Hold'em is the most tricky game on the Boiling Isles. Any proper witch knows how to play.

Luz:
Oh boy, cards! The paper rectangles that old people think are fun!

[Eda puts a card down on the table. Lightning comes from the cards, sending Owlbert flying for cover behind the side of the table. The cards all stand and roar. Owlbert's surge forward and attack Eda's, making Owlbert smirk.]

Eda:
Now when it looks like the deck is stacked against you, that's when you break out the wildcard.

[She holds up a card with a tower on it. It glows green, and Owlbert's cards disappear in a flash of fire. Fiery letter spelling out "WINNER: EDA" appear and disappear over the table. Owlbert hops back on and hoots at Eda, his wings extended.]

Eda:
Woo, I win! In your adorable owl face. Ah, I love the feeling of victory; it feels...fluffy? [feathers are growing from her arms]

Luz:
Uh, Eda? It's happening again!

Eda:
What's happening again?

King:
Your curse is returning!

Eda:
[yelps]

[THEME]

[Cut to the inside of a chest as Eda opens it, Luz on one side and King on the other.]

Eda:
Oh boy.

[All of the bottles in the chest are empty.]

Eda:
This is terrible. I'm out of elixir.

Luz:
Uh, last time this happened, you turned into this thing. [holds up her phone, a picture of the Owl Beast on screen]

Eda:
I know I should be repulsed, but that look is fierce.

Luz:
Eda!

Eda:
You're right, you're right. We need to head to the market.

Luz:
Market! [stands and starts to leave]

King:
[follows her] I'm stealing everything that's not nailed down!

Eda:
Before we go, would anyone like to play one more hand of Hexes Hold'em? [pats her pocket] Hey, where are my cards?

Luz:
[handing the deck to Owlbert] Take these and fly ahead. She'll have to follow us.

[He does]

Eda:
[running after him] Owlbert, you sore loser, gimme back my cards!

[Cut to the Bonesborough sky line as a winged demon flies past. Cut to the market, where Eda bangs on a metal grate.]

Eda:
Hey, open up, Morton!

Morton:
Uh, ju--...just a minute!

[King leaves Eda's side to sit next to Luz on a bench.]

Luz:
Is there anything better than people watching in the Demon Realm?

[Three witches are standing at a bus stop as a giant egg rolls up to it. The egg cracks, revealing a featherless bird that screeches. It flies away. The witches enter the egg, one of them closes it, and it rolls off as Tiny Nose runs up.]

Tiny Nose:
Wait, wait! Aw, dang it.

Luz:
The curse of tiny legs.

King:
I know the pain.

[loud footsteps]

Tiny Nose:
[screams and runs]

[A witch waves his hand, and a cart with a large demon on it follows him. Luz walks up to Eda.]

Luz:
Whoa, that is one ominous parade.

Eda:
That's no parade. Those are demon hunters.

[The demon growls and bucks. The two demon hunters pushing the cart pull its ropes to pin it back down. It tries to bite at the first demon hunter.]

Eda:
Dangerous nomads who capture and sell the most powerful beasts.

[The first demon hunter traces a spell circle, creating lightning in his hand. He grunts as he shocks the demon unconscious. He turns and looks at Luz.]

Luz:
[gasps]

Eda:
...Which I'm about to become if you don't open up, Morton! [continues knocking on the grate]

Morton:
[opens the grate] Sorry, Eda! I was up all night poison tasting and for some reason I don't feel great.

Eda:
I'm all outta my juice, pal.

Morton:
Oh, gee. Lemme see what I can do.

[Morton ducks down and digs around, rattling bottles. The demon hunters continue on, revealing Willow and Gus, looking dejected, behind the demon.]

Luz:
Willow and Gus! [runs up to them] Heya, friends! Wait, what's wrong? Who hurt my babies?

Willow:
Them.

[She points to a food stand. Skara and Cat are laughing while Amity is staring at a potion and Boscha is watching them.]

Willow:
Amity's having a moonlight conjuring and invited everyone but me.

Gus:
And she keeps posting about it on her Penstagram account.

[Gus summons his scroll, open to Amity's Penstagram post of her and her friends posing.]

Luz:
"It's conjuring night! No dorks allowed"? What a jerk! [scowls for a second] What's a moonlight conjuring?

Willow:
You spend the night at someone's house, telling stories, playing games...

Luz:
Like a slumber party! We have those!

Willow:
[pulls out a book] Then you bring something to life with moon magic!

Luz:
[pauses] Like a weird slumber party!

Willow:
Gus and I have never been to one. You need at least three people and--

Luz:
I'm three people-- I mean, we're three people, and we're way better than them!

Boscha:
[laughs as they all approach] Sorry you couldn't get an invite to the conjuring, Willow. [looks at Amity] Only real witches allowed.

Amity:
[sighs] Leave her alone. It's not her fault she was born without talent.

[They all leave.]

Willow:
[growls, grows several vines from the ground]

Luz:
Whoa. [slaps the tallest vine, hugs Willow] Don't waste your time getting thorny over them. 'Cause we're gonna have our own moonlight conjuring.

Gus:
Are you serious? This was on my bucket list. [pulls it out and checks it off] After owning a real human bucket!

Luz:
That's a really weird thing to want, but I appreciate your enthusiasm. I'll go tell Eda.
