Several characters in “Home Improvement,” the identity of this week’s funnier-than-normal episode of The Magicians, cope with some idea of home. First, there’s Fen, who does something she will go for her fatherland, even if that means the present process of back-breaking yard paintings for the prophet in her desires. There’s additionally Alice, who should visit her mother to solid a region spell for Zelda, the Librarian who has her personal home-related preference to find her daughter inside the mirror realm.
Then there’s a pregnant Poppy (a recurring individual played by Felicia Day), who’s expanding her personal domestic — first by stealing dragon sperm to inseminate a dragon egg and then embracing the human infant developing inside her. Home for the group is a fickle aspect, something so flittering it’s difficult to keep directly to, yet something so effective that it drives our characters to head to top-notch lengths to maintain (or push away). Fen’s idea of home is arguably the most uncomplicated.
Ultimately, the maximum challenge. Fen is a toddler of Fillory: her entire existence has been committed to protecting her home in the United States of America. This dedication drives her to go on a quest (with Margo coming along as her wing female) to discover the purveyor of her prophetic goals. This same dedication reasons her and Margo to get conned through a woman pretending to be the prophet, although fortuitously, the handiest fee to them for doing so is some hours of menial exertions.
Less fortunately, however, while Fen subsequently confronts the actual prophet in a dream (a dream wherein she’s transported Margo and Josh, no much less), the cat-like creature tells Fen that her future lies with usurping High King Margo. Meanwhile, Alice should face a home she’s run away from — she needs her mom, Samantha, to cast a spell. But the two have never gotten alongside, and their rift has grown into a chasm because her father died.
Alice’s resentment causes their first attempts to forge the spell to fail, and it’s only when two Librarians show up to arrest Samantha’s buddy Carol (who sells unlawful attractive-time voodoo magic) that they admit that they love each other differently. However, they don’t like each other very a whole lot. Love is all that’s wished, though, and the spell works, permitting Alice to meet her give up her cope with Zelda. Zelda holds up her stop of the bargain: to lose Alice’s new buddy Sheila from the Library’s clutches.
Sheila is under the influence of alcohol, the Library Kool-Aid, and becomes a junior Librarian. Alice is distraught; however, they appear at the fence at the Library at the end of the episode. Maybe Sheila is right? Perhaps the Library will be a new home for her. However, the weirdest storyline revolving around the home concept this week belongs to Poppy and her infatuation with dragons. Quentin and Julia negotiate with Harold, the herald of the dragon of the East River (puns, as usually abound in The Magicians)
about trading for one of the stone organs Eliot-Monster is collecting. As a fee for the stone, Harold sends them on an assignment to recover a vial of blue liquid that a person stole from the dragon’s hoard. That person turns out to be Poppy, pregnant, and camping in the Physical Kids Cottage at Brakebills. As we noticed in earlier seasons, Poppy is a dragon fanatic: she’s even written dragon pornography!
The gang unearths out that she’s inseminated a dragon egg (that blue elixir she stole turned into dragon sperm), and the to-be-born dragon has ensorcelled all who contact it, including Poppy Quentin, and, when he attempts to steal it, Penny 23. Given her former god fame, Julia is immune from the egg’s powers, and they and Kady run back to the East River to trade the dragon egg for the stone organ Eliot-Monster wishes.
