'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' season 2: New poster confirms speculation that a love triangle is brewing
The latest poster for 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' shows Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) sand'witched' between Harvey Kinkle and Nicholas Scratch
The much-speculated love triangle on 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' got an apparent confirmation after Netflix released the first poster for season two of the show.
The poster for the second season — which for some reason is being called 'Part 2' — features Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) sand'witched' between Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) and Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood).
While this confirms the love triangle that was teased in the first-look pictures of the season, the poster has more or less confirmed what may happen in season two.
Sabrina, who got an ultimate makeover after signing the Book of the Beast in the one-off special episode 'The Midwinter's Tale' and now flaunts silver hair and dark makeup, is seen clenching a mysterious book in the poster. The hardcover antique book of magic features a pentacle sign with a third-eye right at the center of it.
Since season one revolved around the teenage witch's refusal to sign the Book of the Beast, season two is bound to be about the aftermath of her signing the book of Satan. Her dark makeover emphasizes this darkness as she's becomes an even more powerful witch.
One of the first-look photos showed Satan standing behind Sabrina while she looked geared up to burn down Baxter High. The caption teased "Break up with your boyfriends. The Dark Lord has other plans."
The instant takeaway is the fact that it mentioned "boyfriends" and not "boyfriend." Even the poster caption reads "double, double, boys and trouble." However, the book remains the focus, since it is very much symbolic of the devil who now owns her, after she signed the 'Book of the Beast.'
The mystery as to why and how Sabrina's parents died still needs to be answered. If the speculation that they did not die in a plane crash but because Sabrina's warlock father fought Satan is true, then season two can see Sabrina in conflict with her god. Will Sabrina burn down Baxter High, as the pictures teased? The poster emphasizes Baxter High in the backdrop with only the word "Bax" visible. The background of the poster boasting the color scheme of red and black are the high school lockers which look stained with blood. "High school is such a witch," the poster states as three main protagonists take the center stage.
What the poster confirmed is that Sabrina has fully embraced her witch-side with Nicholas Scratch by her side. It also confirmed the love triangle because the trio is all it features. However, Sabrina clings on to her mortal side with the presence of Harvey Kinkle, who cold-heartedly rejected her Christmas gift last season. Seems like things haven't ended just yet.
The poster can be interpreted as calm or chaos since Nicholas Scratch had earlier suggested that it makes sense for Sabrina to have two boyfriends, one for her human side and another for her witch side. Fans have suggested the possibility of a "trouple," so maybe there won't be the anticipated- conflict. But, then again, what's a drama without conflict?
Season one, which earned 91 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, is currently on Netflix, while season 2 drops on April 5 on the streaming site. Part 2 contains 10 episodes and the show has been picked up for 16 more episodes that will serve as Parts 3 and 4.
"I loved the first half of the first season. I think the second half is even more ambitious. It’s a little sexier, it’s a little scarier. I’m just really excited for people to see it. Lots of romance, lots of horror. It’s really good. I’m really excited about it," series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a recent interview.
