Similar to the first season and Christmas special, there’s a lot to unpack from Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: Part 2. Throughout this, I’ll be breaking down everything that you need to know about the season and it’s ending.
This is full spoilers ahead, so if you haven’t had a chance to watch the show yet and don’t want to know what happens then I highly recommend that you turn off now.
With that out the way let’s get into my breakdown of Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Part 2.
Sabrina Part 2 Plot Synopsis
Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina picks up in the aftermath of the events of Part One. Harvey and Sabrina are now broken up and the titular character has a lot to deal with after signing her name into the book of the Beast.
That was a pretty life-changing moment for her that comes full circle by the ending of the second Part and showcases just how much she has lost due to the choice in the first season.
This season is all to deal with identity and in the way that she gained a new one at the end of Part 1, she ends up losing it by the end of Part 2.
So what are the big twists and reveals of this season?
Well the first big one centres around Nick Scratch.
Nick’s True Purpose
Ever since his introduction he’s created a pretty big love triangle between Harvey, himself and Sabrina. This season, Sabrina seemed to fall pretty head over heels for the character but by the end we learn that Nick is actually a servant of The Dark Lord that was sent to make sure that she submitted to his will.
It’s a big reveal but it doesn’t mean that Nick is complicit in the whole thing as it becomes clear that he has real feelings for her and he attempts to betray Satan and join her side.
Nick has a pretty big role to play going forward which ill get into later.
Sabrina’s True Father
Another shocking twist comes when Sabrina learns from Satan himself that her father is not Edward Spellman.
Whilst her mother is still Diana, she actually learns that she is the child of The Dark Lord himself, Darth Vader, sorry wrong thing.
All in all, this means that she’s not only half human half witch, she’s actually part human, part witch, and part Satan, thus meaning that she is the forbearer of The Apocalypse.
Pretty shocking stuff right. Well while most would probably embrace their dark destiny, Sabrina actually fights against it and vows to take down Satan, no matter what it takes.
Is Nick Satan?
Sabrina attempts to trick Satan by faking a ceremony of submission to him with the help of her aunts. In this, they attempt to imprison Satan and it appears to work for a brief moment.
However, the antagonist escapes as apparently, no Prison can hold him. This doesn’t stop the group from trying one more trick though and Madame Satan manages to briefly hold him for a second which is when Nick steps up and sacrifices himself.
Nick realises that Satan can actually be held in a mortal body and thus allows Satan inside him. He’s then laid out unconscious and Lilith takes him to hell where she takes over the position as Queen of The Domain. Because she finally gets what she wanted, which is to rightfully be the Queen Of Hell, Madame Satan restores all of Sabrina’s Witch abilities and allows her to remain free on the surface world.
Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: Part 2: Ending Explained
In the end she drops the possession over Mary Wardwell and wipes her memory so that she has no recollection of the actions that she carried out in Greendale, though it seems like she may too be dragged back into the fray.
Though Sabrina celebrates, it’s clear that she feels like shes lost her entire identity after the reveal of her Satanic origins. Add the loss of Nick to this and it’s clear that the character can’t really class this season as a win.
Still, she refuses to be defeated and by the final few scenes, the group proclaim that they’re going to journey back to hell and bring Nick back.
Season 3 Predictions
Obviously, this sets up a lot of possibilities for Season 3 and I can definitely see the group journeying to hell to rescue the character but in the process also having to free Satan once more.
The fact that Sabrina now doesn’t really have an identity means that she will be eager to prove herself and I think going ahead she will carve out a persona that is a complete opposite to the one that we saw at the end of Season One.
She’s been on a huge arc over the past two Seasons and I think that going forward she will try and distance herself from some of the decisions that ultimately cost her in the long run.
Similar to Prudence and Ambrose, she is now out for revenge on those who wronged her and is willing to do whatever it takes to get the life that she deserves without any compromises.
Overall I had a lot of fun with Part 2 and the show just seems to be getting better and better. Everything slowly feels like it’s falling into place and the creative team seems to be fully adept at dealing with the aesthetic that the show doesn’t always need to have a happy ending.
I can’t wait for Part 3 and this is one of the best Second Seasons that I think Netflix has put out.
So, what did you think of Part 2 and where do you hope that the show goes in the future? Comment below and let me know and if you enjoyed this video then please like it and make sure you check out my full break down of Pet Sematary which will be linked at the end.
