The Owl House  Season #1 Episode #17: Wing It Like Witches

Synopsis: To get back at Boscha for tormenting them, Luz and the gang challenge her to a Grudgby match.

[Open on Boscha in her bedroom, which is filled with various trophies. She looks into her mirror.]

You are talented. You are a star. You may be hated, so long as you are feared. Most important of all, you are a winner.

[Boscha rips off a page of her calendar before walking out the door, revealing the whole month has been marked “Grudgby Season”. Cut to Boscha walking through Bonesborough dribbling a grudgby ball, passing several mesmerized onlookers.]

Old Woman:
There she goes, captain of the Banshees. Off to win another championship for Hexside.

[to her child] Why can’t you be more like her?

[Breathes in deeply with an annoyed expression]

[Boscha approaches Hexside, with a banner reading “Go get ‘em, Banshees” magically unfurling over the school. Skara, Amelia, and Cat form up behind Boscha.]

Alright, girls. You know the drill. Captain goes first. [enters the school] Hello, Hexside! Your star has arrived. Groveling line starts here. [looks around] Something’s not right. Nobody’s here!

[Laughing from a distance]

[Boscha peers around a corner, spotting a crowd of students gathered around Willow, who is holding a potted plant.]

Hexside Student:
No way!

Potions Student:
Do me next. Do me!

[Willow uses her magic, the plant sprouting a fruit looking like the potions student’s face. The student takes it.]

Potions Student:
Welcome to the world, little buddy. You’re the coolest, Willow.

Aw, shucks!

Oracle Student:
Yeah, Willow rules!

[walking past with her posse] Wow, she has to make friends out of plants. How sad.

[entering] Oh, please! You know, I used to be like you, Boscha, obsessed with status, challenging my competition. But I grew up. When will you?

[The crowd of students laugh.]

Oh, this is not gonna fly.


[Cut to outside of Hexisde. Eda and Luz fly in on Eda's staff.]

My first Grudgby season! I’m so excited, I have more school spirit than the school spirits!

[Camera pans to a ghost holding pom-poms.]

Why do I even bother? [groans and floats away]

Ah, Grudgby season is the best. You know, I used to play, back in my gory days.

You mean “glory days”?

Well, that too. I was unstoppable on the field. I had the best moves and the best cheats.

Cheating isn’t anything to brag about. How do you know you were any good if all you did was cheat your way to victory?

Ugh. What do humans know, with your goody-goody attitude? If “cheaters never prosper,” why was I the star player?

Well, can’t reason with crazy. [pulls a sleeping King out of her hood] Bye King, you little snoozers.

[Luz kisses King's head and puts him on the staff as he wakes up. Luz leaves. King scurries into Eda's hair.]

Ugh. Eda, when was the last time you cleaned up in here? [He throws a bag of onion rings from Eda's hair, then pulls out a rat] Get your own scalp, buddy. This one’s taken. [throws the rat]

All this talk of Grudgby has me feeling nostalgic. Whaddya say you and me take a little trip down memory lane?

Hard pass.

That’s the spirit.

You mean me?

Ugh. Come on! [flies away]


[Cut to a history classroom within Hexside.]

Over 50 years ago, Emperor Belos appointed a head witch to each coven. [Continues talking]

[to Gus and Willow] I can’t wait for Grudgby season to start! I’ve studied up on all sorts of magical sports. Like this. [holds up a DVD case] “Good Witch Azura 2: The Field of Deadly Fates”. A classic underdog tale.

[taking the DVD case] Azura challenges Hecate in the smibbitch championship. But will she risk it all by taking a chance on the deadly Thorn Vault? [opens case]
