The Magicians Season 1 Episode 9 (S1E9) Review: I was watching “The Magicians” in spite of a series of boring episodes just with the hope that the unique concept of the show would be someday completely presented to its full potential. And the producers did that with the last episode. (see: Balakrishna To Break His Silence On 100th Film.)
Episode nine of the series aired on fourteenth March with title “The Writing Room”. James L. Conway should direct more number of episodes of the show, who finally gave direction to show with multiple plots which were nothing but chaos until now.
The Magicians Season 1 Episode 9 (S1E9) Review
This episode emphasized the fact that magic cannot fix everything even more than the previous episodes and did so in a much more tragic manner. It is perhaps the best episode of the series yet. (check: Super Tuesday Primary Election Results.)
The beginning of the episode features Julia, who feels dejected for losing her lifelong friendship with Quentin, and is trying to cope up with the guilt of her misdeeds. She has recovered enough to leave the rehab center, and Richard encourages her to use the same spell which she used on Quentin on others for good. She is in a dilemma when Richard tells her that Keira, her patient would have to be killed after treatment.
Meanwhile, Quentin and his classmates have to undergo a depressing experience in their search for a way into Fillory. Penny points out that the sixth Fillory book was written not by Christopher Plover but by Jane/Eliza. According to her, Plover didn’t do a fair job with the story, and Jane wanted to set a few things right. Quentin, Alice, Eliot and Penny go to Plover’s estate to search for the key to Fillory themselves.The Magicians Season 1 Episode 9 (S1E9) Review
The estate is now a haven for children’s literature. Quentin and others get hold of some clues which indicate that Plover’s sister Prudence had a death certificate made for him, to rid him of suspicion in the disappearances of the Chatwin children.
The Chatwin kids ended up in Fillory — and Penny discovers that Plover was trying to learn traveler magic so as to visit the realm himself. We do not if Plover was successful in transplanting himself into Fillory, but what does become clear is that his house is haunted.
In a series of visions of the past, Penny and Quentin learn the truth behind the Fillory books. The incident shocks Quentin to him to quite a degree, shattering his entire perception of the world.
