Good Witch, Season One Episode Three – ‘Do the Right Thing’

Saturday, March 14, 2015

Continuing with the adventures of the mother-daughter pair that is Cassie and Grace Nightingale, Hallmark Channel’s third episode gives this "witch-y" (only in the best sense) duo a conundrum that might not involve solving other’s problems. Instead figuring out their own hearts. The fun run and annual Heritage Ball are in full planning mode, but before we get to that, Cassie (Catherine Bell) first has to bring their runaway, Ashely back to Middleton. A series of events led by Brandon reveals that she's a reluctant witness on the run though with Brandon (Dan Jeannotte) and Derek (Noah Cappe) now aware how important she is to a certain federal case, they are hoping to find her before things spiral out of control. Elsewhere, Mayor Martha Tisdale (Catherine Disher) is in a tizzy over their ball venue falling through, which leads to the relocation at Grey House. A flurry of plans are set into motion as Cassie navigates “fake dating” - Ryan, and Grace (Bailee Madison) has her own boy troubles.

Though I really want to talk about some of the specifics of this episode – because oh my gosh – I shall refrain. Seeing as the third episode premieres tonight, I don’t intend to spoil a single thing. As with every installment of Good Witch (whether it’s a movie or TV show), I thoroughly enjoyed this third episode. It seems like there should be an unwritten “rule” somewhere that the third episode is where things begin to really get lively. Many shows have followed this kind of pattern, slowly beginning to form their characters and directions, and this show holds true with this latest episode. It’s setting of the stage for what else is likely to come in later scripts, particularly where the would-be, will-they-or-won’t-they romance comes into its own.

With exception to one or two, I love all of the characters and am quite fond of Ryan though with the way things are shaping up, I suspect he might become a kind of “unneeded” character where the writing is concerned. But let's not dwell on that since nothing thus far is making me doubt any of the enchanting charm of this original series! It’s going to be full of some fun surprises I’ve no doubt and between the mystery of what Cassie will pull out of her hat next, there is plenty of enjoyment to be had.
