'The Magicians': Fen stands her ground and saves the day, entire fandom rallies behind her
After four seasons of being overlooked, Fen lets her friends and fellow High Kings know that she's not to be taken for granted anymore
Spoiler alert for 'Be the Hyman'
Between morality switches, regretful pig people, resurrected pervert ghosts, accelerated pregnancies and the return of two extremely horny gods, there is a lot to keep track of this episode, but one moment is the highlight — Fen (Brittany Curran) stands up for herself, in a moment that's been a long time coming.
Things are growing increasingly dire on 'The Magicians', and it is starting to look like the only way to save the Multiverse is to destroy Fillory. While most magicians start making plans immediately, the only actual Fillorian resident of the group stands her ground, refusing to be taken for granted anymore.
Fen has been overlooked for nearly four seasons now, fans note. "WHEN WILL THE WORLDS STOP UNDERESTIMATING FEN!?" cries out one fan on Twitter. "I absolutely LOVE when Fen comes in to save the day. She's so underrated & I want so much more of her in every episode" writes another viewer.
Fans seem united in the opinion that Fen ought to be more appreciated than she has been. "YESS FEN! I was desperately hoping that she'd call them out for constantly dismissing her until they need her," says this supportive fan. "Fen has been there for them since day 1. They should appreciate her more," writes another.
It's Fen who manages to save the day, as pocket dimensions slowly erupt, she manages to pick up the final one before it's lost. "I'm wise!" she declares, a moment that the fans celebrated.
"I’m just living for @BrittanyCurran's emotional journey with her faith and agency this week. What a great ambassador for Fillory," writes a fan. "Fen deserves so much more credit for all she brings to the table, like girl you did that, you’re gonna be the one to save fillory. you’re gonna save your home," says one viewer.
"@BrittanyCurran is utterly fantastic in this episode. I mean, she is all the time, but this is a phenomenal showcase for Fen," one fan tweets.
Brittany Curran herself, who is one of the stars live-tweeting with fans every week, spoke about the moment and what it meant to her.
"Yesss Fen! YES!!! It's one thing to stand up to your enemy, it's even harder to stand up to your friend. I was so proud of Fen in this moment, everyone even clapped in the tableread! Made me feel like Fen's really appreciated."
The next episode of 'The Magicians' airs on March 25 on Syfy.
