The penultimate episode of The Magicians: Season Two (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) finds Eliot banished from Fillory; Quentin and Julia have broken Alice’s shade out of Underworld; Josh found himself high-fiving an Eliot who was suddenly not there); King Idri and a good many Fillorians are rats, and Senator Gaines has reached his limit with his dad.

The Magicians (Syfy, Wednesdays, 9/8C) continues to delight with an episode that our protagonists back on their heels in light of new revelations. Meanwhile, The Beast sings – really, really well (and quite annoyingly).

Hotel Spa Potions opens with a shot of what looks like sugar-frosted Cheerios drifting through space, suggesting that no matter what we might be expecting, that’s not what we’re going to get.

This week’s episode of The Magicians (Syfy, 9/8C) is entitled The Strangled Heart, which is appropriate because this is the episode where the show finds its heart and soul after seven episodes of slowly and carefully (for the most part) building our familiarity with the core characters.

Literally, this week’s episode of The Magicians (Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C) finds Quentin back in a very familiar – yet strangely different – environment: the hospital we saw in the premiere.
