The Owl House  Season #1 Episode #18: Agony of a Witch

Synopsis: On a school field trip to the mysterious Emperor's Castle, Luz strays from the group and into danger.

[Open on the Emperor's Castle. Cut to a flag bearing the sign of the Emperor's Coven. Wild Witches are being brought across the drawbridge on a paddy wagon, most hidden in shadow, the ones we do see looking resigned to their fate. Something explodes out of the castle's chimney. Lilith is watching the procession from atop the castle walls, then turns and heads inside. Cut to Lilith approaching a stained glass window of Emperor Belos, robed witches bowing at his feet while a Hand of the Titan reaches for the sun behind them.]

I haven't forgotten what you've promised me. I will bring you my sister, Emperor Belos.

[behind Lilith] Then why the delay?

[turns around in surprise] Kikimora!

The Day of Unity is fast approaching, and other teams have bound many rogue witches to covens, and yet The Owl Lady still roams free. Are you... protecting her?

Rest assured, Kiki. I have everything under control. [snaps fingers and guards approach upon command] Today, we capture Eda, once and for all.


[Cut to the Owl House, where Hooty is fast asleep.]

[snoring] Hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot...

[from bushes outside of the house] Good. That infernal house demon is asleep. [beckons at the guards as they ready their weapons] Surround the house!

[The guards go off in different directions.]

Sleepwalking...sleepwalking [wakes up] Sleep-hooting!

[Hooty slams his face into the ground, popping up behind Lilith.]

Hiya, Lilith! Peek-a-hoot! [smashes Lilith into a tree]


[The guards charge.]

Sorry! Eda doesn't like trespassers, but I'm always here to make new friends! Hoot! [bonks guard on the head and wears guard armor] Oh! Look at me! I'm a person now. Wobbly, wobbly! Ooh, blackout! [punches other guard] Hoot hoot! [throws guard armor away] Hoot hoot! Bye, friend! Ooh! I feel like dancing! [shakes body to hit the guards] Hoot!


[Lilith grabs her staff and stands. Hooty is bobbing in front of a tree. Lilith takes aim and fires.]

I did it! [bends down and dodges Lilith's spell] Oh hey! Look, it's a bug!

[The spell slices through the tree, which falls toward Lilith. She just misses it, then collapses on the ground.]

Aww! Just an old leaf! Well, that's good too. [eats leaf; making loud chewing noises]

[From inside The Owl House: Eda, who is wearing a yellow scarf, watches Hooty fighting the guards through her binoculars.]

Hooty! Ah, you're a thorn in my side [takes sup of tea as a coven guard is slammed into the window] but you always dig your way into my heart.

[Luz is intrigued by what's brewing in Eda's cauldron.]

Ooh, magic 'sghetti. [tries to touch it]

Hey! [magically slaps Luz's hand with the spoon] That 'sghetti is Witch's Wool. It repels powerful spells. [holds up some of the wool] Every witch worth their salt has a cloak made from this stuff.

[stares at the wool adoringly] I'm worth salt... I want cloak!

[Luz tries to grab the cauldron but Eda pulls it away from her.]

Easy, kid! With the Emperor's goons at my doorstep, I need this for protection. They have really stepped up their attacks lately.

[stares at her intensely] I think I finally understand why the Emperor wants you so badly. [jokingly] He's got the hots for you, doesn't he?

[fingerguns] Uh, but no. Emperor Belos wants to control all wild magic through his coven system. He ordered my capture years ago because I refuse to fall in line.

And he won't stop until he's got you... [droops head]

Awww, don't sound so worried. I'm a master escape artist. The only thing that can slow me down is my curse, and that hasn't bothered me for weeks! [feathers pop out from Eda's arms] Uh oh...
