The Owl House  Season #2 Episode #3: Echoes of the Past

Synopsis: King's delusions of grandeur lead Luz, Lilith, and Hooty to a dangerous new island.

[Open in the middle of a mystical forest, during a boiling rainstorm. A small, furry creature peeks out from a log when, then hides back in when a hooded stranger runs past. This stranger runs into a ruined building to seek shelter from the boiling rain and pull their hood down, revealing themself to be a younger Eda, with shorter ginger hair. She looks at her cape, annoyed that the rain had burnt holes in it. As she starts to walk further in, unbeknownst to her, a pair of glowing yellow eyes appear from a crevice within a pile of fallen rocks.]

[Eda wanders further into the ruins, past a cluster of stacked rock formations, when a shadowy figure runs past in the foreground, startling Eda.]

Young Eda:
[brandishing her staff] Who's there? Reveal yourself!

[Cut to a perspective view from this mysterious figure, approaching Eda from behind. Eda turns around and gasps.]


[In the present, Luz is at the Owl House. She is studying and experimenting with glyphs in a notebook.]


[She starts drawing a glyph, but scribbles it out. She makes a frustrated grunt. King dives through, tumbling books over.]

Luz, I need your help! I think Francois is trying to start a rebellion.

[Pan to the couch, covered in King's plushies. Francois, his pale pink bunny, is sitting in the center on a pillow. After a beat, a jagged dagger with a red gem on the hilt falls out from behind him.]

In a minute, King. I'm getting so close to figuring out this glyph combo.

It's always glyphs and portals with you these days. What about King?

Why don't you ask Lilith for help? She was in the Emperor's Coven. She has more experience with unruly mobs than anyone.

[Lilith is kneeling at the desk, extremely focused on drawing a glyph with a red paintbrush. She's bent over, eyes only a short distance from the paper. Her hair is messy and the whites of her eyes are huge, with tiny irises.]

[giggling giddily] Watching the ink dry is the best part.

[King grunts in disapproval.]

[giving Lilith a mug] A fresh cup of tea for my favorite cup of tea. That's you, Lulu.

[Lilith smooths her hair, and her eyes are back to normal]

Well, Hootsifer, you truly are a gem. [pets his head] How do you always know what to do?

[whispering to Luz] What's going on? Is Hooty blackmailing her?

Oh, I think they're actually friends. Isn't that nice? [closes her book and stands up, holding a glyph] Okay, this will work for sure. Now you see me...

[Luz slams the glyph to her chest and vanishes. King gasps. Lilith looks up. Luz reappears.]

Luz: you don't. Oh, I guess it only lasts as long as I hold my breath. Still pretty cool, huh?

[King rushes and clings to Luz's leg.]

Don't ever do that again!

[Lilith stands up in amazement.]

Do that again! How ever did you accomplish it?

[shaking King off her leg] Well, since you guys discovered that we can make new spells by combining glyphs, I've been experimenting. I got the invisibility idea from your history books, Lilith.

[Lilith stands up and begins walking to the side]

Fascinating! As the lead historical scholar of the Emperor's Coven, my aid could be very helpful in--

[Lilith stumbles over the tower of King's plushies, toppling them.]

An ambush! Men, defend your ruler!

[King tosses a nearby plush at Lilith. Hooty blocks it, and dramatically falls into Lilith's arms.]

I'm done for, Lulu.

Hootsifer, this is make-believe.

Ah, to die in your arms. Avenge me.

[Hooty droops and sticks his tongue out, his eyes becoming X's. King tosses another plushie at Lilith's head.]
