Lucifer taunts Sabrina through Nick

Sabrina visits Nick in the Academy's dungeon. She notices his clubbed foot and realized that her father has taken control of Nick’s body. Sabrina reminds Lucifer that he’s bound in Damascus steel and circled in salt, preventing him from escaping. She demands to talk to Nick. Lucifer pretends to allow Nick to regain control, which Sabrina is aware of and therefore asks to see his tongue. She points out that a forked tongue is a dead giveaway for the devil. She repeats her request, and this time, the Dark Lord allows Nick to surface. Sabrina promises him that she’s going to find a new prison for the Dark Lord. Nick pleads with her to hurry as she can’t hold on much longer. As Sabrina leaves, she unknowingly breaks the salt barrier.

Zelda enlists in Hilda’s help with running the Academy. However, Hilda had plans to see Dr. Cee, not that Zelda is concerned, as they have an assembly.

Sabrina searches for grimoires on the subject of soul transference in the Academy’s library. She asks Cassius for help and tells him to hold the book for her until she returns.

If she fails, she’ll lose the throne to Caliban, and he’ll declare war on earth. Sabrina will escort the souls by hand and a path to Hell will present itself. Her first soul to collect is that of a man named Robert Robertson. Should the need arise to use force, Sabrina is being accompanied by the Infernal Bailiff.

Sabrina goes to Harvey, Theo, and Roz for help in dealing with Jimmy Platt

Sabrina enters Harvey’s garage to find him, Roz, and Theo rehearsing. She interrupts to call a Fright Club meeting, during which time she informs them of her duties to drag souls to Hell. She reveals that Jimmy Platt, the ice cream truck guy is up next. They don’t tell her what he did, and so Sabrina is forced to figure it out on her own. However, she called the meeting because dragging Jimmy to Hell, assuming he deserves it, could be the key to saving Nick. When Sabrina finally drags Jimmy’s soul to Hell, it’ll leave behind his freshly dead body, which if they move fast enough, they can use as a new prison for the Dark Lord. Sabrina’s relying on her friends to follow her in the Spellman mortuary hearse to collect Jimmy Platt’s body after Sabrina takes his soul.

Sabrina, Harvey, Roz, and Theo tail Jimmy Platt’s ice cream truck in the Spellman mortuary hearse. Harvey is having second thoughts, but Sabrina assures him they must go through with it. When they see Sabrina walk away and Jimmy’s body slump dead, that’ll be their cue to steal the corpse.

Jimmy refuses to return to Hell with Sabrina

Sabrina approaches Jimmy and tells him that she’s come to collect. However, he informs her of his extension fee. Seven more years of life in exchange for an innocent soul. As soon as he finishes his shift, he’ll cut the little girl’s heart out and eat it. Sabrina is in disbelief and has no intention on extending Jimmy's contract. She’s brought the Infernal Bailiff as back up, however, no one knows where the little girl is but Jimmy. So, if Sabrina tries to take him to Hell, the girl will die. He gives Sabrina the ultimatum of either accepting his extension or leaving him alone.

Sabrina returns to the hearse to inform Harvey, Roz, and Theo that Jimmy tried to offer her a child sacrifice in exchange for an extension on his contract. And Sabrina can’t just take him to Hell because he’s keeping a little girl trapped somewhere. Sabrina vows to personally burn Jimmy Platt’s soul herself, but first she must see her father.

Mangled and dying, he called out to his false god to save him. Lucifer got there first. He offered Jimmy a simple standard deal: another seven years for his soul. He agreed and since then Lucifer has been giving him extensions. However, he only required an innocent soul. Children was Jimmy’s predilection. Sabrina refuses to offer him any more extensions, but she can’t drag him to Hell because he has a little girl tied up somewhere. Lucifer warns Sabrina that if she doesn’t bring Jimmy Platt to heel, then she’ll lose her throne to Caliban, who plans to expand into Sabrina’s realm.

A creature known only as the Deep One rises from the water and gives Faustus some kind of large, transparent egg. As payment, Faustus offers the creature two sacrifices. Prudence charges Faustus with a sword. In the time it takes her to reach him, he’s killed the Deep One and turned his attention to Prudence. He disarms and knocks her to the ground. With Prudence’s life in jeopardy, Ambrose grabs the egg and threatens to destroy it. Faustus begs him not to. He’s spent 15 years inside a temporal church of his own making, purifying himself to wield magicks they couldn’t possibly fathom. While it’s been 15 years for him, it’s only been a month for Ambrose and Prudence. With the Dark Lord dethroned and the pits of the abyss unmanned, the old ones are returning to reclaim the Earth, and then the eldritch terrors, Blackwood claims. He lowers his guard and pleads with Ambrose to return the egg. This provides Prudence with the opportunity to knock him out from behind.

Sabrina takes notice in the basket of pinwheels sitting on the table. Mrs. Anderson explains that Lucy collects them and that she had one with her when she disappeared. As Mrs. Anderson searches for a picture, Roz touches Lucy’s pinwheel. Using her cunning, Roz sees Lucy approach Jimmy’s ice cream truck just before he kidnaps her and stores her in what appears to be a freezer. Mrs. Anderson returns with a photo.

Before leaving, she compels Mrs. Anderson to get some rest and forget that she and Roz came by.

As she’s about to finish him off, the two teenagers whom he was offering up as sacrifices plead with Prudence not to kill their father. Prudence realizes that the sacrificial teenagers are her siblings, Judas and Judith, formerly known as Leticia. Meaning Father Blackwood was telling the truth about higher magicks of time and space.
