[Open on the Owl House living room, where Luz is reading from The Good Witch Azura 5 to King.]

Luz:
" 'Azura,' Hecate began. 'Our paths have crossed only in battle. But today I stand before you seeking an ally.' " [sighs]

King:
Luz, you're getting all swoony again.

Luz:
I can't help it. Azura is able to befriend everyone. Even her biggest rival. I wish I had that kind of power.

King:
Rivals are meant to be annihilated not befriended. Now keep reading. I've been sucked into your awful fandom.

Luz:
Okay. "Suddenly the door swung open."

Hooty:
[swings the door open] Ding‐dong. Ding. Hoot! Hoot!

King:
The book has come to life! Burn it!

[Luz goes to the door and finds a basket.]

Luz:
Hmm?

[Cut to the kitchen.]

Luz:
Eda, you got a package. It looks like a gift basket.

Eda:
Probably an offering. Ah! Being the most powerful witch in the Boiling Isles has its perks.

[King, a bib now tied on, grunts as he pulls a blanket off the top of the basket, revealing a snoring baby bat.]

King:
[rubbing his paws together] Mm. Fresh meat.

Luz:
No, not eating that.

Eda:
Witches eating babies is so 1693. What is this?

King:
There's a note. [grabs it] "Take care of my child till morning. Yi Yi."

Eda:
Nope. Babies are awful. Not happening.

King:
"You will be handsomely rewarded. X‐O‐X‐O‐X‐O‐X. Bat Queen."

Eda:
Bat Queen?

[King pulls a few snails out of the basket. Eda's eyes widen.]

Eda:
Reward?

Luz:
Who's the Bat Queen?

[King sniffs the snails.]

Eda:
She's the wealthiest demon on the Boiling Isles. Get in with her and you're set for life. [takes one of the snails] So, we keep this thing alive for a few hours and we get paid. Pfft. Easy.

Luz:
Our greatest adventure yet! Learning about love and life through a child's eyes.

Eda:
Not you. You have to return the books I checked out from the library.

[Eda summons a pile of books, which Luz catches.]

Eda:
[to King] I don't want her getting a cut of the loot.

King:
Good thinking.

Eda:
Now, let's take a look at this little darling. [fully takes the blanket off]

Baby bat:
[screeching]

Eda:
Argh!

King:
Oh, boy.

Eda:
On second thought maybe we could use your help!

Luz:
[halfway out the door] Well, I better get to the library! Got to go! Bye!

Baby bat:
[screeching continues]

Eda:
We got this, right?

[The baby bat flies out of the basket and into Eda's face.]

Eda:
Whoa! [audibly falls]

[THEME]

[Cut to the streets of Bonesborough, where Luz is struggling to walk with her load. She passes Tiny Nose, carrying a book as big as Luz.

Luz:
Huh? Whoa.

[Watches Tiny Nose pass, nearly drops her books. She catches them and continues on for a few steps until she sees the library across the street.]

Luz:
Whoa!

[Cut to the inside of the library as she enters. The book pile glows green and begins floating forward.]

Luz:
Huh?

[Each book flies through a red spell circle.]

Librarian #1:
Late.

[beeps]

Librarian #1:
Late.

[beeps]

Librarian #1:
[grabs the last book] Coffee, grass and bloodstains? These are Eda's, aren't they?

Luz:
Huh. That was a crazy night.

Librarian #1:
[sighs] I'll put them on her tab. [summons a scroll and writes on it] By the way, we're closing early for the Wailing Star meteor shower.

[Gestures to a framed picture of the Wailing Star.]

Luz:
Ooh. What's that?

Librarian #1:
You're in a library. Read a book.

[His scroll rolls up and disappears.]

Luz:
I am in a library. I will read a book. [runs off]

Librarian #1:
Shh!

[Cut to a banner reading "Demon Decimal System DO NOT FEED." Luz rounds the corner and walks up to the growling card catalogues, feeding one a gumball.]
