The Owl House Season 2 Reviews: Escaping Expulsion or Hooty is a Disney Princess
Tumblr media
Hello all you happy people and welcome back to my coverage of the Owl House.. and to my pride month reviews.. and to my nightmare your going to feel like you belong. The last one isn’t relevant I just always wanted to say that.. isn’t that right Freddy?
Tumblr media
Yeah he’s ready for the summer.. and to kill a lottttt of teenagers So anyway we’re into week two of new Owl House and back on the Lumity train again just in time for pride with an episode featuring a karen, arms deals, hooty as a disney princess, attempted murder, cat blobs, ice blobs, parentally allowed child kidnapping, and my boy. So join me under the cut for a full reviewcap with spoilers. 
Tumblr media
So we open this children’s show with an arms deal....
Tumblr media
Yeah it turns out Amity’s parents run their own company Blight Industries: Her mother Odalia...
Tumblr media
Okay okay that was unfair.. her occupation is to serve as hype woman to sell arms to people and generally market the horrifying weapons her husband cooks up, Odalia being in the oracle coven and Alador being in the abomination coven like Amity. Which is sketchy as all hell. No she’s an asshole in her PRIVATE LIFE, bullying Amity over slipping grades and using the necklace amity wears to berate her at any given time telepahtically. Lest you thought the whole willow thing was a silp up or she’d have some hidden depths. No she’s throughly a monster and she’s easily tied for the biggest monster i’ve seen this week.. and keep in mind my review yesterday had me dealing with this guy
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
So you’d THINK one domestic abuser would trump the other but nope, their both extremely wicked, shockingly evil and vile. 
Anyways Amity is demonstrating for their parents Abominaton... and while I THOUGHT magitek was just a thing belos has turns out it’s at least commonplace enough that The Blights make a living off it. The sales go up as Amity does a fight with it and puts on a good show.. until her grom photo slips out and the monster nearly destroys it. Amity procedes to tear it and her mothers’ profits a new asshole and Odalia, incensed decides to blame her friends on it and plans to do something about it. 
Tumblr media
So while we wait for that bomb to go off it’s time for School before School as Luz is teaching the Clawthrone Sisters about Glyphs, how she’s only found four as well as how you can manipulate them to do diffrent things by changing them slightly, explaning how Luz can change what the Glyphs do sometimes. I do appriciate the hard work put into the world buliding and how the magic functions here and it’s very clear Dana put a lot of thought into this. 
The Sisters also act how you’d expect: Lilith is an overly studious teachers pet and Eda just wants to be done with this and is carving Glyphs into her desk.  But enough with teaching two 40 something women how to do stuff, Luz has to get to her school.
So naturally for this show the two plots dovetail off and since our main plot is a tad more serious let’s go ahead and get the shenanigans out of the way
The Shenanigans:
So while Luz is off at School and then trying to get back into school and then trying to fight for her life,  more on that in a minute, Eda and Lilith try practicing their Glyphs: Eda fails at it because, being impaitent to get back at full power, she keeps trying to speed up the process and instead just keeps failing at getting her glyphs down right. In contrast Lilith is much more patient and methoidcial, and thus takes the time to learn from the ground up much like Luz did. What’s intresting is while Luz shares Eda’s impulsivness, her learning style is still far more like Lilith's having clearly taken the time to learn how to use each glyph and alter them and play around with them. 
This does make sense though: Eda’s ALWAYS had tons of power and little patience and thus could simply wing that mother and succed while LIlith had to practice and study to be as good. Eda dosen’t lack Technqiue mind you: as we saw in her fight with LIlith and her menotring Luz in wild magic, she DOES have knowledge to back herself up, but she prefers to learn by experince, finding out things for herself and experimenting.. something the Glyphs just aren’t as conducive to. The reason Luz diddn’t follow her mentor here is Luz never had a bunch of magic to play around with: she ONLY had her light glyph for most of season 1, so she had to learn to play with that and make THAT special, likely learning how to alter it as  a result. So when she got the other three as the season went on, she likely took after it the same way and picked them apart to properly master them. Eda has all the power, Luz had to work with what she got and was more importantly GREATFUL for every scrap. It’d be like if you had a team of eliite, maxed out fully trained pokemon in say gen 3 then had to jump over to 7 where several of those pokemon are missing, several moves are gone or radcially changed, and you have a whole new typing to deal with. 
So Eda naturally pulls an eda and gets frustrated both with her lack of progress and with Lilith showing her up, having upgraded to doing an ice scuplture of her new BFF Hootie and giving him a crown, thus dubbing him Princess Hootie now and forever. So Eda tries to combine a fire spell and an ice spell to make an ice blast.. and instead creates a weird ice thing that looks a lot like a snom without a face, that nearly absorbs the whole house. Eda ends up calling for Lilith’s help with Lilith dispelling it and us finding out how after the fact via flashback: Lilith discoverd something new about the glyphs: The reason there’s only 4.. is that their essentially the building blocks of all magic, something even King comments on because he’s smarter than i give him credit for, and thus can be put one after another like a sentence to do more complex stuff, with Lilith pattenting the title glyph combo for the technique. So in theory and with enough practice they can be used to make any spell from any of the dicisplines. Eda finally agrees to buckle down and learn the hard way: with actual effort. 
I like how once again the subplot advances the story and worldbuilding instead of just being some wacky shenanigan sidelining eda and king. Here we learn the four spell types luz learns are the foundation of magic, further showing both why Belos was a liar.. and why he’s so against wild magic. If anyone else found out magic works at all like this his entire spiel will be shown as fraud: after all why would the covens be split up the way they are if MAGIC isn’t naturally split up that way? Questions for later.
Tumblr media
Now Back to the Good Part: 
So Luz returns to Hexside for the first time since the season 1 finale worrying things won’t be the same and they aren’t just not because of the ceremony, her friends are cool about that: no... the real change is Gus hit witch puberty, and this is taller and has a deeper voice now. The reason for this is simple: Gus’ actor’s voice changed during the production of season 1 and apparently required pitching down. So rather than replace him like way too damn many cartoons, even great ones like Hey Arnold, Gumball or the Loud house, tend to do, they just .. let him hit puberty. 
It’s something I wish more cartoons would do: just let the characters  get older and if you can’t just pay for the pitch shifting dammit. You can afford it. Better than changing voice actors multiple times if you last a while. 
Anyways, Amity is also happy to have Luz back for obvious reasons and even baked her a pie. 
Tumblr media
A fairy pie.. which is filled with still live faires all crammed in there...
Tumblr media
But Luz is polite about it and takes Amity’s pie.. and there’s no way in hell they didn’t choose pie on purpose.
But the good times are interuptted when they get called to the principla’s office... and Odalia not only helps with the calll but is there and is indeed such a petty, vindictive bitch that she’s having the three who aren’t amity expelled, also chastiszing Amity for going back on their deal even though said deal was garbage and so are you Odalia. As for how she can do this...
Tumblr media
I didn’t know going in and the most I know going out is she runs some kind of children’s fund and bump’s hands are tied. Maybe she’s the school’s top donor.. maybe she has photos of Bump having sex with a body pillow of a dalmation man. I don’t know but I hope i’ts the latter. 
Point is our heroes get thrown out and Luz confronts the blights, mostly odalia. I get the distinct impressoin Alador isn’t even aware of things half the time enough to abuse his kids and just let’s his wife do it because he wrongly assumes she knows best. Or he enables her. I don’t know pick your form of toxic co-depdency i’m tired and this review is incredibly late. 
Odalia shrugs it off.. then whips out her endgame, giving Luz a card and telling her she’ll undo it, “A blight never breaks a promise”, if Luz agrees to a little deal. Terms and conditoins are at the manor. She certainly won’t do anything evil...
Tumblr media
Luz opts to try plan A first, i.e. sneak back into the school. This fails again and again, though we do find something intresting out: Bump LIKES the kids. Yeah it turns out he enjoys Luz’s shenanigans and is bored without her. It’s probably why he was willing to let eda simply work Luz’s way back in: he figured correctly Luz, much like her mentor, would inject some needed chaos into his boring ass life. Without them he’s miserable. 
So Willow and Gus are dragged off by their parents and ravens and groudned.. though I assuem they retracted it once they found out their kids literally did nothing wrong and were victims of white privlage. Look all three characters ejected from school are people of color, this can’t not have been intentional. 
Luz talks to Amity after school, with Luz nicely NOT blaming amity for not standing up to her mom: she gets she’s a victim of abuse and this isn’t Amity’s fault and it’s okay she can’t. Amity begs Luz not to go with plan “Go fall into her mom’s clearly evil trap” but with no options and this being her fault to a degree, Luz has no choice. 
So she goes to Castle Doom Blight Manor to go make a deal with fuckface. Naturally the deal is simple Luz take Amity’s place at the demonstration and then dies horribly fighting their best creation after a night of taking severe punishment so odalia can cut out the heart of Amity’s rebellion. and Luz and Co are back in the game. There will also be cake. 
So Luz goes to this very obvious trap and spends the night getting hit in the face with weapons from impoblizing goo guns that at their highest setting turn into flamethrowers, to crossbows, to other fun merch. 
Meanwhile Amity returns home to find her parents left without her and left a note:
Tumblr media
But one look at the abomination butler, which Luz later made look like a cat and she realizes exactly what happens and just sighs. She knew what she was getting into falling in love with this noble dum dum. She’s just numb to it. 
Meanwhile Willow’s dad are trying to make sure she gets a good edjumacation and prepare her for tommorow> Willow however finds Gus and Amity at her window as Luz is in trouble.. with Gus adding an “Again”. He’s also just used to it at this point. Willow sneaks out and adorably one of her dad’s notices.. btu let’s her go getting this is important. Awww. I like her poppas and I like that we finally met them: they seeme nice and the grounding was likely redacted once they found out WHY she was expelled and now simply want to help her be the best her she can be. Awwwwwww. 
So while our heroes try to sneak in and stop Luz from dying tonight, Luz faces the final demonstration: an improved Abomination that won’t stop till their target is eliminated.. .so yeah Odalia planned to kill luz this whole time just to get her daughter’s grades up. 
Tumblr media
So yeah we get a horrifying scene of Luz TRYING to hold this thing off which is esentially like putting 90′s era (cartoon or comic your choice) Jubilee alone up against the juggernaut. It’s not that our lady hero isn’t badass, it’s that she’s CLEARLY out of her league here and can only stall for so long. 
The rest of our heroes meanwhile argue about how to get in: Amity just wants to brute force it and Gus.. wants to conjur a sexy lady guard, to which Willow quips “this isn’t a 40′s cartoon gus!” Okay okay stop. 1) Gus you didn’t stop to consider these guards might be gay or in the case of any actual lady guards straight. 2) The Guards turn out to be abominatoins mostly so do abominations even have a concept of gender? 3) I love the implicatoin the boiling isles also has cartoons and i’d love to see them. Like staby, the goblin whose always stabbing people and watches slowly while they bleed out or mouthface, the mouth that’s always screaming and eating things while it never stop’s screaming and of course Blinky.. hit it sniggles!
Thankfully Eldtric and Emira come by and offer them an easier option: they just give them the robes all the participants are wearing because no one wants ot be idenitfied buying weapons, it’s the first rule of illegal arms dealing
Tumblr media
So our heroes infiltrate and while Gus and Willow are captured like.. minutes after they walk in...
Tumblr media
Amity spots Luz about to die and decides to finally tell her mom to go fuck herself in the most Disney friendly fashion she runs up on stage, destroys the fucking necklace of emotional abuse, and declares no one harms “her Luz”.  Luz then blushes, finally openly returning Amity’s feelings. Either she just finallyr realized the really obvious given there’s nothing subtle about “My Luz” or she happens to find crushing a monsters hands with powerful magic attractive. What am I saying..... it’s clearly both. 
So the two team up with Amity giving her mom a long and cathartic speech about how she won’t let her control her, how Luz, Willow and Gus, who I wasn’t aware she even knew existed, made her a better person and take a hard look at herslef and she’s going to keep seeing them no matter what. She and Luz tag team the blob monster, and also blush together which AWWWWWWWWWWW. Their both into it now. it’s so fucking cute. So Amity makes her mom a deal, her mom will back the hell off and undo the explusion, or Amity will destroy the only thing she truly loves: her profit margin. Odalia reluctantly agrees, Luz and Amity take a dive, and the sales meter Odalia has set up explodes with profits. 
Tumblr media
Odalia naturally wants to go back on the deal right away and go even harder on Luz...
Tumblr media
But Alador finally notices his wife is the spawn of satan, and while that’s part of what he loves about her he tells her to simmer the fuck down: She agreed to it and he’s holding her to that.. and more importantly while Amity’s grades have slid.. that dosen’t matter. She’s STRONGER now, having easily bested their strongest creation simply on adrenaline. So the idea of her daughter being succesful sates the beast and Luz head shome.
At home Luz is prepared to clock out only for Lilith to have made a sculpture of her for extra credit:
So she gives everyone gold stars and goes to bed.
We close the episode with lying ass bitch and husband happy with their profits.. until Golden Guard shows up. The Emperor had eyes in the crowd and WAS gneuinely impressed with the abomatons and is buying out the whole stock out from under the current buyers, and funding research.. but warns the two Belos frowns on personal armies, basically saying “Sell this crap to anyone but us and i’ll kill you. :) “ So now Belos has a private army better than his actual army.
Tumblr media
Final Thoughts:
While I still consider Separate Tides the better of the two this episode was not bad at all. IT had good pacing, world building, and a subplot that felt like it helped further the series instead of wanting to get back to the good stuff. It was a solid episode and had some great Lumity content and i’m here for that especially since they dialed down how Amity acted and instead used the episode to enrich her character more, while still giving the shippers what we wanted without overdoing it and making it seem like things escalated way too fucking quickly. Luz also finally openly reciporcates which.. about fucking time honestly.
Next Time: We finally get back to watching these episodes week by week as King’s shenanigans somehow result in an island trip for Luz, Lilith and Hooty.

The Clawthorne Sisters
Ok I've talked about this with @edasnest and @preciseprose a couple times each I'm pretty sure, but Escaping Expulsion's glyph lessons really drives home for me how neither Lilith nor Eda have ever really grown up from who they were as teenagers, but for entirely different reasons.
We see this in YBOS when Lilith quickly gives into her 'childish urges' to make faces right back at the owl beast, and in WILW when, instead of completing her job, Lilith agrees to a grudgby match of all things, to decide Eda's fate.
Even all the way back in Covention, Lilith pre-cheats to get 'back' at Eda, who she 'knows' is going to cheat- and then how she absolutely explodes when Eda keeps rhyming taunts at her (truly sibling behavior...). -- I think it's totally likely that both of them had their maturation stunted because of the duel for the Emperor's Coven spot; Not to say that neither of them ever grew up at all after that, but they're still both petty and overly competitive, they set each other off (mostly Eda setting Lilith off, tbh) over the smallest things. -- In Eda's case, I think that she probably stuck around Hexside/their parent's home for a little while after Lilith cursed her. You know, when she still had hope it was a temporary thing.
At some point, she got scared, couldn't stop transforming in her classes, decided to push people away, and struck out on her own to protect the people she loves.
She was probably between around 15 during the duel (she looks around Luz's age), and if I had to bet, I'd say she probably didn't stick around for more than a year before she figured out the curse was there to stay.
Obviously you have to grow up somewhat to be able to protect yourself and survive in the world when you strike out on your own, but after losing her support system and becoming an outcast in a society that doesn't care about her at best and is actively out to hurt her at worst, she probably decided 'forget the rules, I'll do what I want!' and stuck with that philosophy to this day. -- Lilith on the other hand...
If Eda was 15, that would make Lilith 17 or so. At 17 years old, Lilith cursed her sister and was entered into a state sanctioned cult, likely fawned over as a prodigy child, and probably indoctrinated heavily with little outside influences other than whatever issues she was made to take care of as the Emperor's Enforcer.
I mean, at any age, someone telling you how amazing and powerful you are, handing you various elite privileges, likely taking care of just about your every need, getting your face put up on posters, and everyone around you emphasizing how whatever you're doing is furthering the Titan's Will (your world's god?)?
You're doing amazing, don't need to change anything, why would you ever try.
Lilith is a perfectionist, she needs order, rules, structure (probably has Eldest Daughter syndrome...). The EC provided all of that and more.
Now in S2, Lilith is somewhat adrift, looking for that acceptance and structure wherever she can get it, and in EE? She puts it on Teacher!Luz.
Luz is giving her structure -Here are 4 glyphs, practice them like so
Luz is giving her focus -Follow this person's orders
Luz is giving her back her magic -Lilith doesn't know who she is without it
It's not the worst thing in the world for Lilith to mmm...respect(?) Luz? Especially not after how she treated her before. But the statue she gave her at the end was weird, and Luz wasn't comfortable with it. And it's a huge change in Lilith's opinion from Covention when they met, or AoaW when Lilith 100% appeared to be attempting to kill Luz just to get Eda back.
From a complete dismissal to respect bordering on veneration is an enormous jump that Luz might be further uncomfortable/suspicious of (and rightly so, imo).
I'm hoping that they'll cover it more in Echoes of the Past, digging into King's backstory at the same time as showing us what Luz really thinks of Lilith now that they're on the same side.

Okay Okay Okay
I was trying to add the timeline of the 2 new eps to my vague timeline of the show that I went thru and did a while back
But I have no idea how long the second ep occurs over
Initially I thought 2 days, starts at night with the little Blight Industries Show, the next morning we get the scene at The Owl House and that day the rest of the ep happens ending that night after Luz’s turn at the Blights presentation
BUT, at the start Odalia says there will he another show in a Week to showcase their new tech, which implies there's a whole week between the opening scene and the closing scene .
It Could work if the only plot was the main hexside plot with Luz, you could argue they tried all this stuff over the course of a week and if probably believe you. The B plot and final ending scene, not so much
I feel like trying to say that plotline lasted more then maybe 3 days max is pushing it. Like sure they could have some a bunch of stuff in between that we didn't see but it just doesn't feel reasonable that they could drag that out to a whole week, especially seeing as at the end they make it seem like Luz has Just come home after their lesson with her

"I have good news and...strange news? Good news is that Miss Camila Noceda will be recovering sooner than we had once thought!! The odd news is hard to explain but I will try...I believe that after saving Eda from the parasite and splitting the curse with her, Eda and Lilith's magic bile sacks have mutated into being able to use not only their universe's magic but other universes versions of magic as well...!"
Dr. Isabella Joyce, while explaining to Luz within the camp on what had happened and caused Eda's magic to become that strong for that period of time during that huge fight.

Is Lilith being the teacher's pet to Luz the funniest thing ever?
It's a lil weird, but definitely funny- especially since Eda apparently gets jealous of it and tries to compete...with a regular ice ball. Vs a literal sculpture of Luz.
Luz looked a bit uncomfortable when Lilith did it, but loosened up when Eda joined in lol. Gotta love that sibling competitiveness!

Lilith seems desperate for approval, and honestly the statue at the end with the gold star cuddling was cute but worrying. Your thoughts?
Definitely agree re: cute but worrying due to desperation for approval.
I'm hoping that it's not a thing that carries on throughout other stuff (and fades away with Luz being the teacher soon...) because I could easily see it getting into the 'do you forgive me yet, sister?!' side of things, with Lilith becoming completely overbearing while trying to be 'helpful'. Given Luz's expression when Lilith gave her the ice statue, I don't think Luz would enjoy it much either!

Escaping Expulsion
Up too early for this ep too, but my mom actually sat and watched part of it with me! I got surprise fanart of one of my Palisman Au ficlets once (printed it out, it's still on my wall. there's actually TWO!), bragged about it to her, and she......wanted to read it? Told her if she actually watched the show for context then maybe but it hasn't really happened so far. (If I'm honest, the one I'd want her to read is The Angst for an opinion on it from a mother's perspective)
Eda and Lilith really never did grow up, but for totally separate reasons
Eda really wants to be able to do magic again, hence the attempted speedrun
Lilith, who needs Structure and is a perfectionist
Essentially confirmed that there's only four (4) glyphs! I still think there could be more of them for special things- maybe a portal glyph in particular- but that might be it.
Luz might not have seen ANY of her friends from Hexside for around two weeks? (1.5 weeks at Separate Tides, + at least three days of Luz teaching glyphs).
Amity bringing in the fairy cake is cute, much less of a disaster lesbian than I thought. Still a disaster lesbian tho, she can't even look Luz in the face.
She keeps her grom picture NOT in a pocket like a reasonable person, but in her SLEEVE. Is it there for ease of access? So it won't get folded? Is she HIDING it there bc of potential pocket searches? Is she just a dramatic gay? (to that last one: yes.)
Amity really is her father's daughter; She's got his eyes and his hair, and his coven track.
I hate the gem and its implications so so so much. We knew Odalia was a control freak from when Dana told us she makes Amity dye her hair but I honestly did NOT expect it to get to this level.
Amity's performance in school has 'fallen'- how much. Like. Odalia is a control freak so it could just be from 'A+' to 'A', but maybe Amity really is having her grades suffer from just looking at Luz all class period? We don't know. I want to know.
I DO actually believe that it's not 'personal' to Odalia. Luz (& Co) could have been anyone that distracted Amity and she'd still want to teach them a lesson. Specific thoughts re: how Odalia sees people: Assets or Obstacles.
Proof that people know Luz's name isn't 'The Human' when Odalia announces it over the intercom.
Bump????? Was so unexpected??? The man is fending these kids off at every turn. With tears in his eyes? A photo album of their moments together??? He was probably simultaneously relieved and heartbroken when Eda dropped out!!
ONE OF WILLOW'S DAD'S HAS A NAME!!! We have closed captioning on for our tvs, Disney supplies half decent captions unlike SOME channels, and when Gus and Willow's dad's called, they supplied the name GILBERT. Beard Dad = Gilbert! I hope this is actually canon and it wasn't just someone randomly adding a name to differentiate the Mr. Parks
Thank you, Mr. Porter, for using your reporter voice to announce Gus being grounded.
Honestly the Parks are super (over the top maybe) caring. We don't even know if they're in the plant coven, but here they are both dropping their jobs to help Willow when she gets expelled
Them deciding to homeschool her implies to me that she can't/they don't want her going to Glandus or St. Epiderm's, and there might not be other options...
Chaotic Student Eda trying to speedrun learning glyphs by just slamming them all together, though it probably wasn't totally random experimentation; apparently there's different spell fluids in a witch's bile sac??
how do you combine glyphs I need to know
Luz: I'm here to appeal to your hearts, Blights! Odalia: No <3
Despite Separate Tides I think Luz is still feeling like a burden here, hence why she goes to Odalia solo to get her friends reinstated
Abominations have organs, according to Alador's schematics in the bg (Odalia donated her heart to science)
A Blight always upholds their end of the bargain. <- a bluff and also a control tool.
Amity goes to get Gus first, despite having known Willow longer. And then just wants to bullrush the place. ...given her apparent skill level when ripping apart the first abomination bot, this seems like a partially feasible plan.
Appropriate plans for Willow and Gus' personalities too; Root system! Cautious, takes time! vs Lady Guards! Flashy, requires some showmanship!
Ed and Em are (mostly) bros and apparently Amity can make a deadly weapon out of the notes they stuck to the back of the cloaks. Amazing.
Although it's not personal, Odalia IS still willing to take Luz out; She is A Distraction. Alador...less so. Is he not into the spectacle of it? Does he know that taking Luz out (whether that means straight up killing her or just knocking her out) would turn Amity against them? Sir what are your motivations I would like to know.
To anyone saying Luz gets her crush in this ep, ding dong, you are wrong, she's been Interested for a while
Amity's top student badge is WELL earned (or...her parent's bots are horrible, which is also possible), she's able to take out a literal specialized battle abomination out of gayness concern for her bff who makes her a better person
Of course Odalia could've stopped the fight. Amity breaking her gem to cut off the mental communication was so powerful
Also it plays into my B!Amity thoughts (did I ever publish/post those??)
Alador smiles and appears interested while watching Amity fight the bot/talk back to Odalia. Again, I ask for his motivations esp when he stops Odalia from calling 'all the authorities' (which I'm not sure I believe she'd do tbh). Does he care about Amity and her happiness and just uses Odalia's own words and Amity's power growing as a way to convince Odalia to stop messing with her? Is he stopping her because her power is growing and it was more useful not to upset her? Hello???
GG walking in is why I don't think Odalia would've called 'all the authorities'. Odalia is afraid of him and Belos. I could see her calling someone up to snitch on Luz and Eda- but I don't think she'd want to call more attention to Blight Industries and the Blight family tbqh. At the very least, she would wait until the evidence of the 'private sale' was hidden away
Belos doesn't want anyone building a private army; The Blights absolutely see the writing on the wall re: Belos and his iron fist, but I'm not sure in exactly what way. You don't have regular private sales after hours while trying to hide your identities, u kno?
Lilith is an attempted teacher's pet, and Eda wants attention too.
Eda not questioning Luz's beat up appearance (she had to have gone on fighting stuff for hours) tells me that Luz probably comes home messed up often enough for it not to be a thing to question? (She does have many misadventures after all) Or else she was just way too into the glyphs to notice, which is also possible.

I can't wait for Rayne to appear. I already want someone to write a fic where by the time Luz shows up on the Boiling Isles, she and Eda are already married, and when Eda brings Luz to the Owl House, Rayne is all 'Eda, babe, TELL me you did not kidnap a child from the human realm!'
I love how even though we've barely gotten a full profile from Rayne let alone seen them in-show we all agree that A.) this is definitely Eda's ex crush and/or partner and B.) Lilith was very jelly of them in high school

tiny nose has a name, but what that name is is apparently a spoiler
sarah-nicole has a dog that kept interrupting the stream (not that anyone complained lol) and she scolded her in spanish at one point
sarah-nicole was also an emo kid who listened to my chemical romance, simple plan, etc religiously
luz, tiny nose, and lilith say trans rights
king was intentionally designed with a heart on his nose
the above was found out when dana vaguely alluded to a character with a heart on his nose and sarah-nicole grabbed the season 2 poster and spent like three solid minutes trying to figure out who it was (interjected by dana saying "thats not a heart. do you not know what a heart looks like?")
cissy was wearing a bad girl coven t shirt and she and everyone else apparently buy fanmade merch all the time
related to the above, sarah-nicole has a king plushie
sarah-nicole has to drink a LOT of coffee in order to voice luz
the whole cast idolizes dee bradley baker and sarah-nicole actually fangirled when she found out he voiced owl eda and other critters in the show
they also love tati gabrielle and think that she's the sweetest (this just made me very happy)
cissy unironically loves the "good luck with puberty" line because she had a really rough time in middle/high school (all three of them kinda talked about being picked on in school actually, especially SNR, which made me sad)
dana's favorite luz line is "I'm calling applesauce on this business baloney!" (though "talk to the glyph, witch!" is up there too)
one of cissy's favorite lilith lines was calling hooty a "bird worm" (her other favorites are spoilers iirc 👀)
the cast members actually booked the roles in 2018
one of the reasons dana can draw hands so well is because she was apparently made fun of for having "long, spidery hands"
sarah-nicole's favorite anime is sailor moon and she geeks out whenever the show references it
that's all I remember but I might edit with more later lol

Have you all ever had a crush on someone from another world and wanted to show how happy you are to see them that you make a Fairy Pie?
Tumblr media

Tumblr media
I present the Fairy Pie! Perfect to show you care to someone!
Tumblr media
This was a tough one Im not gonna lie 😭 it is filled with ground beef, cranberries sauce, nuts, and a mix of spices!
Tumblr media
For the pie crust I used a basic recipe to put it together. Then made my attempt at a lattice 😅 is now a good time to say im not a baker
Tumblr media
Unfortunately, I can not eat this because I have a mild allergy to cranberries (and most other fruit) but I had 3 people sample and surprisingly they all loved it?!? I’m still confused on that one! So if you have a crush and they like pie tell them that Owl House gave you the idea!

My reaction to Escaping Expulsion.
Amity, your mom sucks.
Did the curse made Lilith lose some of her braincells? Her being excited is weird to watch, I don’t care if it’s adorable, it’s weird.
Oh, WOW. Gus went to puberty. Good for him.
Every time I see Odalia, I hate her more.
More Lulu and Hootcifer PLATONIC moments. (Why do people ship these two?)
Good job Gus, you stopped Luz from making a deal with the devil.
Aww, so Principal Bump does care about his students.
Dang, Luz. At least ask Amity out before proposing to her.
Titan dammit Luz, you’re only going to get hurt.
I love how Amity immidieatley knew that Luz was her replacement just by looking at the abomination.
Willow’s parents quit their jobs for her? That’s sweet and also depressing- HOP POP IS THAT YOU?!
Okay, Willow’s green dad is cool. Like he saw Gus and didn’t even bother to scold Willow or tell his husband.
I feel like that part where King gets sucked into ice is a foreshadowing.
The twins helping the teens while also trying to prank them. Sibling energy.
Can someone give Luz a break? First, she has to deal with her self-blaming for Eda losing her magic and job, (and possibly suicidal) And now her body is probably broken from all of the abominations.
Okay, WOW. Are Luz and Amity really not going to wait to ask each other out? Like seriously that line ‘Stay away from MY Luz.’
Alador is actually kind of cool despite being a neglectful pare- nevermind he’s just as bad as Odalia.
It’s a bit too soon to say that there are no more glyphs right? Also Lilith you’re trying way too hard.
So the gang has to deal with an abomination army. They just can’t catch a break.

Okay, I just need to say one more thing: Luz’s teacher-student dynamic with the Clawthorne sisters is freaking A D O R A B L E (especially when coupled w/ the latter two’s competitive sibling energy). I mean, the way Lilith pretty much hugs her extra credit star at the end of the episode- frickin’- HHHHHNNNNNNGGGGGGGGHHHHH- 🥺🥺💝💝💖💖
