The Episode begins at the Bent Elbow. While Freya is working she explains the Tarot Reading her Mum gave her the night before to Ingrid. "One man is you're Soulmate. The other man is your destroyer". Freya reveals that she believes Killian is the destroyer. Freya heads over to a table to give an arguing couple their drinks while Ingrid follows. The drinks are potions which make the couple apologetic to one another. The couple rekindle their romance as Freya and Ingrid look on. Ingrid and Freya smile at each other. "My life maybe in shambles. But atleast I can make someone else happy" Freya says as she goes back to work behind the bar.
At Fair Haven, Penelope sets aside a vase of black roses, she chants a spell whilst sprinkling water over on to them which turns the roses into White Roses. She writes a letter for Freya and seals it, grinning to herself afterwards.
Joanna is sitting by the window at home as Wendy walks in. She has the box containing the Serpens Clavem. Joanna tells Wendy to she needs to show her something but she must not get angry. Wendy replies "ok" and Joanna opens the box. Wendy immediately gets angry. Joanna explains that she took the key from Archibald. "Why would you keep that Snake? It's seductive and corrupting and poisonous, you and I both know what it does to people. Why would you keep it?" Wendy asks. Wendy realizes that Joanna has kept it in order to go back home. Joanna says she will not get rid of it as it's her only connection with her home.
At the Library, Ingrid meets with Barb. Barb says there is a guy here that wants to check Ingrid out. Ingrid explains that the guy is Mike, the one who helped her in the Civil War Isle. Mike waves. Barb tells Ingrid to go and help him. Ingrid helps Mike with his researching.
Killian Arrives for his shift at the bent elbow and tries to speak to Freya but she ignores him. Eventually they argue over Dash. Freya is pissed that Dash left her and isn't talking to her. "You destroyed my life" She tells Killian. She tells Killian she thinks that he thinks this whole thing is a game to him. Freya storms off. Amy walks up to the bar, she overhears the conversation and is not impressed. She planned to surprise him at work.
Joanna paints a canvas while Wendy tries to reason with her about the Serpant. She wants to destroy the Key but Joanna doesn't. Wendy tells her she knows that she wants the key so she can see Frederick in Asgard again. Joanna doesn't want to talk about him or Asgard. Wendy walks away, As she walks over to the table she hears a voice coming from the box which contains the Serpants Clavum. Wendy opens the box and stares into the snakes eyes. She is mesmorized. She reaches out to touch the snake but it jumps onto her arm. Biting her and wrapping around her hand like a bracelet. Wendy screams in pain.
Joanna races over to help Wendy, "What the hell happened?! Did you look in it's eyes? You know you're not supposed to look in it's eyes!" she yells. Wendy is in agony. Joanna tries a spell to release the snake. "Demetes Serpents!" she says but nothing happens. Wendy says she needs something stronger. Joanna goes to get the Grimoire to find a spell to release the serpent. Wendy stops her, telling her to look. Black poison rushes through her viens. Joanna tells her to stay there. Wendy closes her eyes as the poison reaches her brain, when she opens her eyes again, her pupils turn black.
Amy talks to Killian, she tells him to stop lieing to himself. She knows he likes Freya. She kisses him goodbye and walks out.
Mike places a pile of books on the libary counter, Ingrid is impressed that he went through them so quickly. Barb is impressed too. Barb tells him she doesn't have any more books on East End's history. He tells them both that he is looking for information on the Occult and Witchcraft. Ingrid questions why and tries to change the subject. Barb reveals that Ingrid does Witchcraft an that she cast a fertility spell on her. Ingrid says the spell was fake, probebly written by an Eleven year old boy. "There's no such thing as Witchcraft" she tells him. Mike wants to talk to her more about it but she says she is busy. "Maybe later?" he asks. Ingrid agrees and goes back to work.

"I miss it too but it's not the same place anymore" Joanna says. Wendy tells her that she wants to open the portal. Joanna tells her no, they must not open the portal. "If that portal opens we have no idea what may come through from the other side!" she yells. Wendy walks across the hallway but Joanna teleports in front of her, blocking her path.
