During the night, the Dark Lord appears in Sabrina's room, telling her that it is time for her to make her dark devotions to him. She tells him that she will not do what he wants her to do. He answers that he warned her, when she signed his book, that she can not deny him. After Sabrina asks him what he wants, Satan orders a surprised Sabrina to steal a pack of gum before leaving.
The next morning, Sabrina tells her aunts and Ambrose that the Dark Lord visited her during the night. Zelda is upset to discover that she slept throught the Dark Lord's visit. She tells Sabrina that the task he asked her to perform is a sacred obligation between her and the Dark Lord and that doing such a task would prove her dedication to the Path of Night. Zelda then tells Sabrina that she must perform the task or suffer the consequences, such as bad things happening to her and those around her.
Sabrina enters a local store and heads to steal a pack of gum, as tasked by the Dark Lord. Ms Wardwell appears and stops her from doing it, telling her that it is not like her. She offers her money to pay for it, which Sabrina refuses, saying she does not want the gum anymore and leaves the store. Ms Wardwell casts a coin look over her shoulder at the Dark Lord, seated at a nearby table.
At the Academy of Unseen Arts , Zelda arrives Faustus Blackwood 's office just as Sister Shirley Jackson exits. The two witches are unhappy to see each other and Shirley leaves.

He tells her that he wrote a new adaptation that Sister Shirley did not approve and asks Zelda to be the new co-director and elocution coach to the production, which she accepts.
At Baxter High, students are told that they will be working on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The teacher tells the students to find a partner and pick a scene to present to the rest of the class. Harvey stares at Roz who looks up at him and giggles. He asks her to be his partner, her playing Juliet and him Romeo. Roz accepts, but seems recalcitrant to the idea, because there is a kissing scene. She then has a vision of her and Harvey sharing a passionate kiss. Returning to reality, Roz asks Harvey if he has talked to Sabrina. He answers that they have not talked in a while and that they are still figuring things out.
At the Church of Night, Zelda rehearses with Nick and Dorcas, while Sabrina watches. Prudence sits by Sabrina, telling her that she must be jealous that Dorcas is playing the romantic lead opposite Nick. Sabrina answers that she is fine.

Watching the rehearsal, Sabrina whispers that Dorcas is a terrible actress, as the Dark Lord appears, telling her that the role should be hers. He suggests that she pulls a pin holding a rope with a sand bag hanging above Dorcas. Sabrina pulls the pin and the sand bag falls on Dorcas. It turns out that it was just an illusion; the pin is still in place. Sabrina starts repeating "I won't do it" out loud, with the others looking at her, asking who she is talking to. She answers that she was talking to no one and they all leave for lunch.

Sabrina tells her aunt that the Dark Lord made her choke because she has not done what he asked to do. Hilda confides to Sabrina that the Dark Lord tasked her after her own baptism and that nothing happened after she did it. She then asks Sabrina why she is resisting him. Sabrina answers that "if [she] says yes to this one thing, it'll be harder to say no the next." Hilda suggests to Sabrina that it would be easier to resist the Dark Lord's influence if she goes back to be with her mortal friends.

They start reading their lines which leads them to kiss.
Later, in Harvey's bedroom, they kiss passionately on the bed. Sabrina unbuttons Harvey's shirt and discovers claw marks on his chest. In shock, she asks him what they are, but Harvey cannot see the marks. Sabrina climbs off of him saying it was a mistake for her to forget what she was.
