The Magicians recap: Season 2, Episode 9, “Lesser Evils”, Aired Mar. 22, 2017
And we thought Julia and NiffinAlice were tough nuts to crack. Our two most reckless Magicians have nothing on those mercurial fairies that strike that craziest of bargains with Margo. Although it is tough to top trading your bestie’s unborn child to stop a war, Julia does her level best to do just that in her latest attempt to get at Renard. Julia throws her best friend to the wolf…or rather fox lurking at the gates. She does it in hopes that Quentin will loosen his hold on NiffinAlice who might be powerful enough to take down Renard on her own.
Meanwhile, Penny and Kady have their hands full trying to protect Dana and Renard’s newfound demi-god son. Apparently, Julia doesn’t care whether the young Senator lives or dies, as long as she can harness his powers to take down her rapist. In Fillory, war has begun only the kingdom’s reserve of soldiers are in short supply (Thanks, Jules).
Listen in as Brad and Cort discuss the wildest twists and turns of the episode. What will Eliot say when he finds out about Margo’s deal with the fairies? How cool and creepy did they look? Also, Eliot, Fen, and Margo’s impromptu musical!!! What an unexpected delight. How much darker can Julia possibly get? Also, is this the first ever case of sexually transmitted lycanthropy?
