Sorry Harvey Kinkle, warlock Nicholas Scratch makes for a better love match for Sabrina in part 2 of 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'
Harvey Kinkle and Sabrina Spellman may have been a legendary couple once, but 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' changed it all.
The witching hour is upon us again and it's only witchier than the last.
After Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) signed her name in the 'Book of the Beast,' she acknowledged her witch-side more than her human side, and even let go of her mortal friends at the end of the season, including her boyfriend Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch).
As we saw on the original series 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch', Harvey Kinkle and Sabrina Spellman were ideal couple goals and the then-Harvey had comparatively fewer issues accepting that Sabrina is a witch. They even got their 'happy ever after,' as the series wrapped up with Sabrina and Harvey riding off on a motorcycle to the song ‘Running’ by No Doubt.
Cut to 2019, 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' (CAOS) has made it crystal clear that the new Netflix series is not reminiscent of the 1996 sitcom, or even the comics for that matter. The showrunners pitched the new Sabrina show as a crossover between horror films such as 'The Exorcist,' and 'Rosemary's Baby.' So of course, the expectations weren't hooked to Melissa Joan Hart's Sabrina and season 1 of CAOS, which premiered last Halloween, established that.
Now season 2 is bound to push the boundaries a bit further, and what better way than to debunk the idea that Sabrina and Harvey go together like winter and sweater than with another love affair for our teenage witch. In the world of witches and warlocks, nothing goes as planned. The adversities met by Harvey and Sabrina in the new adaptation dissolves them as a couple, but incoming is another man so perfect for Sabrina the teenage witch. The warlock named Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) is everything we needed when it comes to the teenage witch's conflicted life as a half-mortal, half-witch.
The new Harvey Kinkle has more issues with Sabrina being a witch, but the warlock doesn't, instead, he is fascinated by her.
The apparent love triangle has been teased a couple of times, but here's why we think Nicholas makes for a better boyfriend to Sabrina than Harvey.
Sure, Harvey is sweet and charming and all but does he have what it takes to be a powerful witch's boyfriend? Will Harvey be able to assist Sabrina the way Nicholas can on her journey to attaining the greatness, especially if she has to fight the Dark Lord some night?
The suave warlock is not just an average warlock. He is a brilliant warlock, excelling in all crafts of wizardry and just as Sabrina, is opposed to the archaic and barbaric practices of the Church of Night. Calling the 'Feast of Feast,' a practice of cannibalism, Nicholas called the ritual "bonkers" and openly expressed that the Dark Lord is a jealous lord. So they pretty much are on the same wavelength. Added to that, they make an aesthetically appealing couple, especially now that Sabrina has got a makeover and she's flaunting a silver bob and dark lipsticks.
Their chemistry together is fiery, but what about love? Witches don't dabble in that sort of human emotion, right? But in season 1, Sabrina gives a glimpse of what love is to the warlock, who identifies as polyamorous and even enjoys an orgy with Prudence and Ambrose. "Witches are aces at passion and lust but when it comes to love, not so much," he tells Sabrina. But what we know for sure, he is only growing fonder of the half-witch and briefly suggested she should date him for it only makes sense to have two boyfriends for her dual nature.
And also, not to forget, how Nicholas showed he truly cared about Sabrina when he stepped in to protect Harvey from the wrath of the Greendale 13, who would have definitely killed Harvey and his father at their unguarded house.
All these show that the warlock is capable of so much love, maybe Sabrina's mortal side will help him find that in the coming season.
