The Regina George-esque leader of a bewitching trio known as the Weird Sisters.
A student at the Academy of Unseen Arts and the de facto leader of a trio of witches known as the Weird Sisters. Beautiful and cunning, Prudence nurses a deep, personal, and possibly life-threatening grudge against Sabrina.
Prudence is the illegitimate daughter of Father Faustus Blackwood. Her mother, who remains unknown, threw herself into a river after Faustus refused to marry her. Following this tragic event, Father Blackwood took Prudence with him and raised her as his own; which unbeknownst to Prudence, was due to the fact that she was his daughter. She grew up along with Agatha and Dorcas as an orphan in the Academy of Unseen Arts. She always looked out for them because Agatha was always overly enthusiastic while Dorcas lacked confidence and had the tendency to stammer. After her Dark Baptism and initiation into the Church of Night, she became a student at the Academy and was put through the Harrowing. At some point, she met Sabrina Spellman, who she began bullying due to her dual nature of being half witch and half mortal.
Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas, a trio of teenage witches better known as the Weird Sisters appear in the woods after hearing Sabrina Spellman summon a familiar. Having eavesdropped on Sabrina, they now know with certainty that she’s going through with her dark baptism and transferring to the Academy of Unseen Arts. However, as far as they’re concerned, Sabrina being the half-breed that she is, is not welcome. Prudence warns Sabrina to stay away from the Academy as she wouldn’t want what happened to her mother and father to happen to her. Dorcas and Agatha add that it would be tragic should the accident that took their lives also befalls Sabrina. The Weird Sisters then place a curse on Sabrina. Almost instantly, Sabrina’s nose starts to bleed.
After learning the names of the boys who harassed her friend, Susie, Sabrina went into the woods to summon the Weird Sisters and ask if they'll help her get revenge for Susie by helping her mess with four mortal boys. The surmise that Sabrina summoned them to remove the curse they had previously placed on her, but they would only do so if she pledged not to attend the Academy. Sabrina explains that the curse has already been reverse, but she was still willing to strike a deal. If they help her teach the boys a lesson, then she won't attend the Academy. Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha agree. However, Sabrina strikes this deal with her fingers crossed behind her back.
That night, Sabrina (dressed in a similar fashion to the Weird Sisters), Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha approach Carl, Billy, Ed, and Seth outside a convenience store. They were hoping the boys would join them for a party in the mines. While they recognized Sabrina from Baxter High, they asked where her friends attend, presumably Riverdale High School, but Prudence simply states that it's a special school. Sabrina, Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha take the boys to the Greendale Mines, what some call "The Devil's Doorway." The mines run so deep that one shaft takes you down to hell. The girls lead the boys into the mines, though the boys start to regret their decision almost instantly.
Sabrina, Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha undress, quickly followed by Carl, Billy, Ed, and Seth. The girls have cast an illusion spell on the boys to trick them into hooking up with themselves. The illusion fades once the flash from Sabrina's camera goes off. Sabrina tells them that the pictures will be posted all over school if they hit Susie or any girl ever again. When Billy becomes aggressive, Prudence takes charge. She cuts off the lights, and she and her sisters transform, taking on a ghoulish appearance, consisting of gray-green skin, glowing eyes, and black-rimmed teeth, causing the boys to run in fear. Salem watches from outside as the boys come rushing out.
Back inside the mines, Sabrina finds a steel cage with four birds inside sitting on the ground. Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha took the boys' boyhood. Until Sabrina releases the birds, Seth, Ed, Billy, and Carl won't be rising to any occasion. Dorcas believes that a few weeks of impotence might teach them better manners. Prudence then states that Sabrina might be more suited for the Academy than they initially thought. They know Sabrina lied, but they helped her anyways because they enjoy tormenting mortal boys. Sabrina didn't want to leave with her friends still having to deal with the boys. Prudence questions why leave at all if she cares about her friends. Sabrina explains that with the visit from Father Blackwood, she wasn't sure she had a choice in the matter, which came as a surprise to the Weird Sisters. Prudence tells Sabrina that singing her name into the Book of the Beast is an even exchange. She gives up her freedom in exchange for power. However, Sabrina wants both.
Sabrina sprints through the woods in her mother’s white wedding dress. As she passes under the threshold, her once white dress magically turns black. Sabrina passes through the blue flames and arrives at her baptism, where Hilda, Zelda, Father Blackwood, Prudence, Dorcas, Agatha, and many others are in attendance. Hilda and Zelda present Sabrina for her unholy baptism. They disrobe her as part of the ceremony. Madam Satan watches from the shadows as Sabrina kneels. Father Blackwood smears blood over Sabrina forehead and read Sabrina her rights and demands her loyalty. However, when it comes time to sign the Dark Lord’s Book of the Beast with her blood, Sabrina backs out after realizing that she would have to give up her free will. She takes off running after seeing her parents, Edward and Diana, in the shadows, telling her to run. Father Blackwood orders the coven to get her.
Sabrina attempts to escape but she becomes entangled in magical possessed vines, though she manages to narrowly escape. Ambrose and Salem are sitting on the porch as Sabrina comes screaming for help, with the coven not far behind her. Father Blackwood demands Sabrina’s signature, but she refuses. She believes that there’s another path for her, similar to that of her mother and father’s. When Father Blackwood orders Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha to take Sabrina, Ambrose informs them that a circle of protection rings the house, and no witch save for a Spellman may cross it. Any unwelcome witch that tries shall burn. With that, the coven retreats. Little did they know, Ambrose was bluffing. Zelda and Hilda brush right pass Sabrina and head inside.
The Weird Sisters attend Sabrina’s Trial. As she has been sued for breaking her promise, of signing the Book of the Best, Sabrina hired the mortal Daniel Webster as her lawyer. During the trial it’s revealed by Zelda, that Sabrina’s father Edward Spellman signed Sabrina’s Name in the Book of the Beast, when she was three days old. However Hilda reveals on the last day of the trial that Sabrina’s mother Diana Spellman baptized her in the Holy Mother Church of Greendale, much to the shock of the entire coven. After a short break Father Blackwood announces that due to conflicting contracts, baptism, and breeding, the Hellbound Court of Greendale decrees that Sabrina shall retain her mortal life on the condition that she also attend the Academy of Unseen Arts, as well as weekly Black Mass. Sabrina accepts the court’s decision. With a ruling in effect, the court restores full power to the Spellman family.
On Sabrina’s first day at the Academy of Unseen Arts. Faustus Blackwood takes her to choir class where his wife, Constance Blackwood, is teaching. Lady Blackwood asks Sabrina to sing a few verses for her, after she does Lady Blackwood comments that Prudence finally has some competition. Later the weird sisters join Sabrina and Nicholas Scratch at lunch, Prudence gives Sabrina a hard time for having a mortal boyfriend and running from her Dark Baptism. Nick offers to walk Sabrina to her next class and Sabrina accepts.
Sabrina wakes up in the middle of the night in the Witch's cell. The Weird Sisters have put her in there for the Harrowing, a witch tradition. Sabrina has to survive the night. The next morning the Weird Sisters open the door and find Sabrina shaking. She turns around and smiles at them. She introduces them to Salem who'd snuck into the cell in the middle of the night to protect and comfort her.
After a shower and a phone call with Harvey, Sabrina goes to the dorms and finds that Salem is missing. She asks the Weird Sisters where they've hidden him and gets into a fight with Prudence. Father Blackwood interrupts the fight and tells Sabrina to come to his office. He is holding a pet kennel revealing that the reason Salem is gone is that he was informed about Salem.
Prudence enters the office with Stolas she says that he spied on them, in the girls shower Father Blackwood tells her that he will take care of the bird.
Sabrina is taken again from her bed and left in a field by the Weird Sisters. They told her that if she turned around she'll die.
The Weird Sisters take Sabrina to the tree where they are going to hang Sabrina. Instead, the children end up hanging the Weird Sisters. Sabrina tells them that there will no longer be any harrowing before having the children release the sisters.
The next day Prudence is called into Father Blackwood's office. He yells at her for being bested by a hedge Witch without any formal education. He tells her that the Dark Lord wants her at the academy but he never said she shouldn't suffer while being here.
inside Sabrina's dream, her witch life and mortal life are fused together. The Weird Sisters are cheerleaders who mock her, and Nick is a football player who flirts with her. Harvey proposes to Sabrina. On the day of the wedding, Sabrina tells Harvey that she's a witch. He seems to accept it but later, at the ceremony, Harvey starts to choke her. He asks her why she had to tell him that she was a witch. He shoves her into an Iron Maiden torture device and seals her inside. The Batibat appears and offers to let her out if only she'll tell it the spell to release the seal. Sabrina says that she won't and is left to scream in pain at being trapped and bleeding from the sharp spikes inside of the device.
Ambrose dreams of having to do his own autopsy. He gets called upstairs by Hilda because Faustus Blackwood has come to see him. As he makes his way upstairs, he runs into Ms. Wardwell who tells him that she's in the wrong nightmare. Father Blackwood tells Ambrose that the hex that keeps him in the house has been broken and that he's finally free. He's given a bag of money and told that a car outside waits for him.
Zelda is reading to the children about the false god and Adam and Eve when the Weird Sisters appear. They tell her that The Dark Lord will be coming to dinner at her house tonight. She tells Hilda and decides to roast a child in his honour.
Having discovered that name of the demon. Who is possessing Jesse Putnam is Aphophis, Sabrina asks Father Blackwood at the Academy of Unseen Arts about the demon. He tells her that the only way to get rid of it is to perform an exorcism but witches aren't allowed to do that as that is a Catholic Rite which is taboo in all of the Churches of Darkness. Sabrina reveals that her friend’s uncle is being possessed by a demon, Apophis. What if this brings unwanted attention to the witches of Greendale? Blackwood replies that it’s not a concern, as possessions involving Apophis rarely last long. Apophis is a parasitic demon, also known as the Devouring Worm. He’s feasting on Jesse from the inside out. If he’s alive, he won’t be for long. After he’s done feasting, he’ll just jump into another host, usually a body that’s already come into contact with Aphophis. Sabrina becomes more concerned about her friends and asks if there is another way to get rid of the demon, to which Blackwood replies that there isn’t for tenacious demons such as Apophis.
The Truth about her origins
At the Academy of Unseen Arts, Prudence tells Dorcas and Agatha that she has been chosen to participate in the Feast of Feasts. Sabrina asks her how she can be so happy that she may or may not be sacrificed. Prudence tells her that there is no greater honor. Dorcas and Agatha say that it would be the first time that an orphan would be Queen.
At the selection ceremony, Sabrina interrupts before Zelda can grab a piece of paper from the box. She tells the coven that she will be representing her family instead unless Zelda wants to admit that this whole thing is barbaric like her brother declared. Zelda relents and lets Sabrina choose. Sabrina chooses the paper and burns it but Prudence ends up being chosen as Queen.
That evening Prudence arrives at the Mortuary with a duffle bag. Ambrose is clearly smitten with her. Prudence asks Sabrina for a milk bath and some macaroons. Sabrina is forced to wash Prudence as she lays in the bathtub. Sabrina tries to convince Prudence to escape but Prudence is honored to be their sacrifice. Sabrina asks what if there is nothing after death and Prudence says she feels sorry for her because she doesn't have any faith. After the bath, Prudence goes and takes Sabrina's bed as her own. Sabrina sleeps on the floor.
That night Sabrina gets woken up by a noise. She heads up to Ambrose's room and finds Prudence, Ambrose, Luke, Dorcas, Agatha, and Nick having sex. Nick invites Sabrina to join them but Sabrina rejects the offer and leaves. In the morning, Prudence is sitting on the porch when Sabrina walks out. Sabrina tries one more time to convince her but Prudence is sticking to her answer. Sabrina goes to leave but Prudence asks where she's going and Sabrina says to Baxter High. She invites Prudence to come along with her and Prudence accepts after Sabrina tells her there will be boys she can torment.
Sabrina introduces Prudence to her friends claiming that she is her cousin who is visiting for Thanksgiving. Susie tells them more about Dorothea and that she helped a group of women escaping religious persecution in Scotland, and Prudence says that they learned about her at the Academy and that Dorothea was a true ally to those women a hero to the marrow. They ask Harvey what he found out and he tells them about the land grab. Prudence begins to attack him verbally because he's a descendant of the Von Kunkles who stole that land from the witches who founded the Church of Night. Sabrina quickly grabs Prudence and drags her out of the library. Prudence asks Sabrina how she could think that she would find the meaning of life at her school as her friends don't even know that she's a witch. She is also upset that Sabrina’s beau is a witch hunter. Sabrina tells her that Harvey isn’t a witch hunter but Prudence replies that she and her sisters have a very simple philosophy when it comes to witch hunters: kill them before they have the chance to kill us. Sabrina tells Prudence that if she lays a finger on Harvey, she will tear her to pieces, Prudence says that Sabrina should save it for Feast day. Sabrina says that Prudence is deluded, Ms. Wardwell interrupts their fight and says that they shouldn’t be catty bitches she then asks Sabrina to introduce her to Prudence. She takes the two of them to her office.
In Ms. Wardwell's office Sabrina says that she knows that the Feast is witch tradition, but wants Miss Wardwell to talk some sense into Prudence, and tell her that the Feast has no purpose not if the cost is precious life. Prudence says that the reward is eternal glory in the Dark Lords Heart, she then asks who Miss Wardwell is and why are they talking to her about their witch traditions, Sabrina tells Prudence that Miss Wardwell is a witch who got excommunicated from another coven. Prudence is surprised that Sabrina expects her to take advice from an excommunicate Sabrina says that Prudence shouldn’t be a snob and that Miss Wardwell is incredibly learned, Miss Wardwell tells Sabrina about the research that she did and that even though Prudence doesn’t want to take advice from an excommunicate. There is someone she should meet a witch who rejected the crown of being Queen. That she lives deep in the Greendale woods in Moon Valley. Prudence says that she'll go with them to meet her if she can bring the other Weird Sisters.
In the woods, Sabrina, Ms. Wardwell, and the Weird Sisters arrive at the witch's home. Her name is Desmelda. Sabrina asks why she ran from the Dark Lord. Desmelda tells her that she ran from her High Priest and that she was younger than she was when she participated in the Feast of Feasts. She fled into the woods because her High Priest tried to rape her the night before the Feast. Prudence asks what this has to do with her. Sabrina tells her that it isn't the Dark Lord asking her to do this but Father Blackwood. That he is only human and that he can have faults and be wrong about this.
Prudence tells Sabrina that Father Blackwood doesn't have an agenda and that he is like a father to her. Sabrina says that's what makes it so insidious. Prudence tells her that she wants to be Queen and asks why Sabrina can't accept that. Suddenly, they hear a gunshot and Desmelda tells them to leave. They find a dead deer which was also a familiar. They make a circle around the deer and use string to make a pentagram over it. They become invisible just as Harvey and his family arrive at the site. Seeing that there isn't a dead deer they continue to keep looking. Prudence, upset by the kill, declares "Once a hunter, always a hunter." Sabrina tells her Harvey's not a hunter but Ms. Wardwell notes he certainly looks the part. Prudence agrees by stating his whole family is witch hunters. Agatha and Dorcas want to kill him for murdering the familiar. Prudence agrees by telling Sabrina that instead of letting Sabrina drag her all over the world she'll spend her last moments flaying Harvey alive. Sabrina tells her not to and that Harvey isn't a killer. Prudence asks why her faith in Harvey is so different than Prudence's faith in the Dark Lord.
Sabrina goes to the Academy to warn Prudence that it wasn't Father Blackwood who was out to get her but Lady Blackwood. Sabrina asks if it's possible that she really is Father Blackwood's child. Because if she were then Lady Blackwood would see her as a threat. Prudence tells her to stop but Sabrina keeps going on about how Lady Blackwood had to hurt her first. Prudence asks if she has any proof and Sabrina says no but that Lady Blackwood was the one who had been holding the box at the selection ceremony. Prudence asks what they would do if she entertained the idea. Sabrina tells her that every Queen deserves one last feast.
Sabrina welcomes Father Blackwood and Lady Blackwood into the house. They sit down with the Weird sisters, Zelda, and Sabrina to have dinner. Hilda is in the kitchen making dessert. Ms. Wardwell is having a glass of wine when the doorbell rings. It's the pizza guy with her pizza. She tells him to bring it inside and closes the door behind him. Sabrina brings out dessert in which Hilda has added a truth potion. After everyone has a slice, Sabrina asks Father Blackwood why he reinstated the Feast of Feasts. He says that the Dark Lord showed him a revelation and that he was commanded to return to the old ways. Sabrina tells Prudence that she hopes she enjoyed her last supper. Everyone around the table tells Prudence that they're going to miss her--except Lady Blackwood. Lady Blackwood reveals that she enchanted the box to choose Prudence as queen. She says she did it because the Weird Sisters are Father Blackwood's bastards and that makes them a threat to her children.
Prudence asks Father Blackwood if he is her father and what happened to her mother. He reveals that he is her father and that her mother threw herself into the river after he refused to marry her. Agatha and Dorcas ask if they are also his children and he says no: They are just orphans. Prudence admits that Sabrina was right. Father Blackwood says that they must summon the coven and draw for another queen. Sabrina suggests that they could just not have the Feast of Feasts. Prudence asks if she can wear her beautiful dress and sit on the throne of skulls.
They attend the Feast of Feasts ceremony where Prudence sits upon the throne of skulls. Father Blackwood walks in and begins to tell the coven that there will not be a Feast of Feasts but another witch named Mildred steps up, slits her throat and falls before the altar. The coven look to Father Blackwood for permission and after a moment of suspense, he gives it to them, much to Sabrina's horror. The witches begin to attack the body and tear it apart as they eat.
Prudence finds her sisters huddled together. She asks what they're doing and they say they are praying for her.
The Betrayal of a Sister
At the Academy of Unseen Arts, Nick asks Dorcas and Agatha if they've seen Sabrina. They tell him about the tragedy at the mine and how there's going to a funeral but that they are burying an empty casket. Prudence overhears them talking to Nick and becomes suspicious of their actions.
Sabrina summons Prudence in the woods. Prudence asks what she wants and Sabrina says revenge. She explains what Dorcas and Agatha did. Prudence again asks what she wants. Sabrina says that Prudence owes her since she saved her from Constance Blackwood. She wants her help because she has a plan to bring Tommy back.
Sabrina and Prudence go to the Academy of Unseen Arts. Sabrina confronts Agatha and Dorcas. Prudence reprimands them for acting without her permission. Sabrina says that one of them is going to die so that Tommy can live. The sisters tell Sabrina that she doesn't have the guts to kill them. Prudence says that she does. She asks who the mastermind was and Dorcas quickly sells out Agatha. Sabrina tells Prudence to bring them both to the woods. Nick asks if he can come along and watch. He asks what time and Sabrina tells him midnight in the clearing in the woods near the creek bed. Nick points out that she needs a book of the dead. Sabrina says that she'll get one.
Sabrina and her entourage arrive at the clearing. They draw a pentagram and stand around it as they recite the spell. They get to the stage where they must sacrifice Agatha. Prudence asks if she's sure and Sabrina says she has to be. She pulls the knife back and slits Agatha's throat. Now they must wait thirteen minutes for Agatha's soul to leave her body. After that, they take her to the Spellman graveyard and bury her. Ambrose comes out of the house and yells for Sabrina. He reprimands her for using this type of magic. Sabrina is stubborn and says that what's the point of being a witch if she can't help the ones she loves. Ambrose tells her that she crossed a line this time. Suddenly, Agatha's hand shoots up through the dirt just as Sabrina planned. Sabrina says as much but Ambrose tells her that those are infamous last words as he walks away. Agatha pulls herself out of the ground. Prudence tells her that actions have consequences and that what she did could've revealed their existence. Prudence says that she is never supposed to take such action without her permission.
Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas are praying when Prudence notices that something is wrong with Agatha. Agatha begins to throw up dirt.
At the Academy, Father Blackwood gives Ambrose a familiar named Leviathan. He welcomes him to the academy and leaves both him and Luke in his office.

Prudence, Nick, and Dorcas tell them everything and how it's all Sabrina's fault. Blackwood goes to kill Tommy to restore the balance but Zelda tells him that she'll do it because Sabrina is her responsibility.
Blackwood tells Prudence and Dorcas that they must end Tommy because he doesn't trust that Zelda will do it. Nick overhears this. Prudence and Dorcas go to Harvey's house but Nick stops them by driving stakes through their footprints. Prudence and Dorcas cry out and Nick says that they are going to stay here until the Spellman finishes fixing this.
Sabrina leaves and Harvey goes to grab one of his guns. As Sabrina walks away from the house she, Prudence, Dorcas, and Nick hear the gunshot.
At the Academy, Sabrina talks to Nick. He asks her how things are going with Harvey and she tells him that he's devastated. They have broken up. Nick can't believe she really loves Harvey. That's the one thing he envies about mortals, they can give themselves to each other. He says witches are bad at love because Satan wants them to love him alone. Suddenly, the statue of the Dark Lord that they're standing in front of starts to bleed.
At the Church of Night, Father Blackwood says that the Dark Lord is angry with them but then Ambrose and Luke storm into the church. He tells them that it's not the Dark Lord but the Greendale Thirteen. That tomorrow night, during the witching hour, they will release their Crimson Avenger and it will go forth and kill every firstborn in Greendale. Father Blackwood tells them not to worry that they'll just hide at the Academy since it's magically protected. Sabrina worries about the mortals but Father Blackwood tells her to let them go to their false god. He reminds everyone that they have to be at the Academy at midnight or else.
Zelda gets summoned to the Academy Blackwood has summoned her there. Zelda is angry for having been taken away from her family but Blackwood tells her that Constance Blackwood is in labor. Zelda demands that Prudence helps her.
Lady Blackwood continues to go through labor. One of the babes is pushed out but something is wrong because Zelda doesn't show the baby to Lady Blackwood. Lady Blackwood tells Prudence and Zelda that her children must be preserved no matter what.

At the Academy of Unseen Arts, Sabrina meets up with the Weird Sisters Prudence, Dorcas and Agatha and seeks their help with a séance. She learns that they are free that night and that Nicholas Scratch has gone on a holiday to the Unholy Lands. The Weird Sisters agree to help and Sabrina promises to leave her window unlocked.
Back at the Spellman's house, Sabrina brings her mother's white dress for the séance with the Weird Sisters. Agatha summons Diana Spellman's spirit. Sabrina asks the spirit about the circumstances of her death. The spirit says 2321 and Sabrina recalls that was the flight number of the crashed plane that her parents died in.

Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha gather with the rest of the student body for the election for Top Boy. One warlock chosen to serve as a liaison between students and faculty. Nick is nominated. Sabrina offers to contest the election on the grounds that she had signed the Book of the Beast. She calls for all students regardless of their gender to have a voice. Nick nominates Sabrina and is seconded by Prudence. As part of the Top Boy selection, Father Blackwood announces that the candidates have to take part in three challenges at the Desecrated Church: the Inquisition, the Boil and Bubble, and the Conjuring. This will be followed by a vote.
Following morning, with the beginning of a new cycle, Prudence asks Father Blackwood if she can take up the Blackwood name and stand for Top Boy. However, he wouldn't allow for it. Sabrina and Zelda visit Father Blackwood to request a postponement due to the demonic attack, which is why Zelda has given her a witch-whistle and blinding powder. Father Blackwood refuses to grant Sabrina's wish, but gives her time to compose herself. In private, Prudence offers to help Sabrina get through the Inquisition.
As the the Inquisition commences at the Desecrated Church, the Weird Sisters telepathically wire the answer to Sabrina from the Academy's library, resulting in a victory for Sabrina. The Weird Sisters also attend the Conjuring test, during which time Sabrina and Nick accuse Father Blackwood or a member of the coven of sending high demons to attack her. And as proof, they summon the Plague Kings to get answers.
At the Desecrated Church, Zelda rehearses with Nick and Dorcas, while Sabrina watches. Prudence sits by Sabrina, surmising that she must be jealous that Dorcas is playing the romantic lead opposite to Nick. Sabrina answers that she is fine. Prudence thought she broke up with Harvey so she could be with Nick. Prudence reminds Sabrina that last is a emotion, not something to be embarrassed of. Sabrina tells her that Nick is just a friend and moves to sit on the side of the stage.
Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas rush over to help to Sabrina after she chocked on a apple while rehearsing with Nick for the play. The following day at the Desecrated Church, Nick and Dorcas continue their rehearsal as Prudence and Agatha watch on. Zelda interrupts and tries to speak, but a frog pops out of her mouth, much to Prudence and Agatha's amusement. She holds the frog and asks the students which one of them did this to her. Prudence tells her that the frog is Sister Shirley Jackson's familiar.
At the Desecrated Church, before the entire coven, Prudence, Zelda, Hilda, and Father Blackwood included, the students play The Passion of Lucifer Morningstar, with Ambrose playing God, Agatha playing Stolas, Nick playing Lucifer, and Sabrina playing Lilith. Afterward, the witches and warlocks celebrate at Dorian's Gray Room. Prudence and Ambrose, attracted to each other, get closer. She remarks that he was very convincing as the False God. She asks if she makes him want to convert to which he replies that he's always been a polytheist.
In celebration of the upcoming Lupercalia, witches' version of Valentine's Day, Prudence, Dorcas, Agatha, Sabrina, Nicholas, and Ambrose attend a party at Dorian's Gray Room. Sabrina watches as Ambrose kisses Prudence and asks if Luke would approve. Ambrose explains that Luke's out of town on a mission for Father Blackwood.
Lupercalia is pastoral festival started by Roman witches under the reign of Caligula. The festival consists of three events: the Matching, during which one is paired with a random warlock. The Courting, where the two spend the night in abstinence. And the Hunt, a run through the woods which culminates in a frenzy of orgiastic carnality. As the Courting ceremony commences, Ambrose briefs the couples, himself and Prudence included. hey will go into the woods and disrobe and anoint themselves under the moonlight, absorbing the potency of Goddess Selene. Ambrose says abstinence is encouraged in anticipation for the powerful release that concludes Lupercalia, but he is not opposed to couples having sex. As Prudence passes out anointment baskets with items inside such oysters and figs, Father Blackwood warns the couples to stay on the path due to the dangerous creatures in the woods. While making out in the woods, they hear the howl of a wolf and decide to leave.
As the girls prepare for the hunt, Agatha tells Prudence about her plans to have sex with Melvin, whom she believes to be a virgin. Dorcas reveals that she already had sec with Melvin during the night of the Courting. Prudence tells the Weird Sisters to prepare for the hunt. Sabrina says she is coming, but has to gather her berries of phylaxis. Later, Ambrose briefs the witches and warlocks about the Hunt. Nick, Melvin, and the other warlocks stand in a group to Ambrose's left, dressed as wolves, while Prudence, Agatha, Dorcas, Sabrina and the remaining witches, dressed in red hoods, stand to his right. As part of the Hunt, the witches chase the warlocks through the woods. The Hunt begins, and Prudence hunts Ambrose down and has sex with him.
The Weird Sisters appear in Sabrina's vision. They flirt with Nick at the Academy, much to Sabrina's discomfort. Prudence asks Sabrina if they are taking part in the Academy's talent show. Nick explains that they hold a talent show each year to blow of some steam. He tells her that he is thinking of being a magician this year and asks if Sabrina would like to be the magician’s assistant. Prudence offers to lend her some fishnet stockings. Nick tells her to shut up, but Prudence responds that she was not the one who killed his familiar Amalia and didn't fulfill Lupercalia tradition by having sex.
The Weird Sisters attend the talent show hosted at the Desecrated Church. For Nick's second act, he picks Prudence and asks her if she has traveled beyond the astral realm into the feared Other Realm. He asks if she will dare to venture there. Nick places her inside the cupboard and chants an incantation. Nick opens the door and finds that she has disappeared. He asks if she can hear him. Prudence says she doesn't like it and tells Nick to bring her back. He chants an incantation but she doesn't reappear. Prudence panics and tells him that something is troubling here. Sabrina panics but Prudence reveals that this was all a trick and that she bi-located.
For his third and final act, Nick calls for the bravest lady in the room. Sabrina volunteers for this trick. Nick asks her if she has experienced true weightlessness and tells her to trust him. Nick uses a magic trick to levitate Sabrina into the air. However, he struggles to control his powers due to the Weird Sisters' interference.
Prudence also appears briefly in Zelda's vision with Ambrose, following Zelda's wedding. She asks them about the whereabouts of Father Blackwood, and they tell her that he is inside his office.
The Weird Sisters enter Father Blackwood's bedroom as he's shaving. His body covered with ritualistic tattoos. They shared a dream. Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas informs him that with the Anti-Pope's visit and Father Blackwood's marriage to Zelda, she feared delaying it. The Weird Sisters hold hands and tell him that they saw an altar, a coffin and much bloodshed. They warn him to beware of the Spellmans, claiming they will be the undoing of the Blackwoods. Blackwood dismisses their warning and claims that the Spellmans are at his mercy. He orders them to go to bed and dream no more of blood. Agatha and Dorcas take leave, but Prudence stays behind and asks if Zelda will take his name. Blackwood confirms this is the case. When Prudence asks if Sabrina will be a Blackwood, Father Blackwood accidentally cuts himself with his razor blade. Father Blackwood vows that Sabrina will never be a Blackwood before sending Prudence to bed.
Prudence visits Zelda and asks her to petition the High Priest to grant her the Blackwood family name. Zelda is reluctant, but Prudence reminds her that she helped her to deliver the twins and kept Leticia's existence secret. Zelda says she will speak to the High Priest but can't guarantee any promises.
The entire Academy gathers to welcome the Anti-Pope. As he is guided into the lobby by Father Blackwood and Zelda, Prudence speaks with Zelda, but she apologizes as her father won't budge despite her efforts to give Prudence the Blackwood name. Father Blackwood then introduces Nick to the Anti-Pope. When Prudence asks her father if he is going to introduce her and the Weird Sisters, Father Blackwood introduces her as Prudence Night, describing her as one of the "gutter orphans" the Academy fosters.
That night, Prudence attempts to stab her father in while he slept. However, the two are startled by a Dorcas' screams. Zelda demands to know who is screaming. Father Blackwood, Zelda, and Prudence enter Enoch of Antioch's chambers to find that he has been hacked to death. Blackwood strikes down two of the Judas Society stalwarts guarding him. Despite Zelda and Hilda's pleas, he tries to strike down Ambrose who manages to teleport to safety. He orders the others to find the traitor.
Father Blackwood demands to know why Prudence would try to commit patricide. Realizing that her ambitions knows no bounds and that he needs the support of his family, he makes her a Blackwood. Henceforth, she shall be known to all as Prudence Blackwood.
At the desecrated church, Father Blackwood officiates over the funeral of the Anti-Pope and announces he will conduct his own marriage to Zelda. Hilda accompanies Zelda down the aisle as Prudence takes stand at Father Blackwood's side. Blackwood offers a blood sacrifice to the demons of marriage and lust: Astaroth, Furfur, Hathor, Ishtar, Saleous, Uvall, and Vassage. He and Zelda drink the blood of a sacrificed being. Blackwood reads their marriage vows. However, the wedding is interrupted by the ghosts of Edward and Diana Spellman, who denounce Faustus Blackwood for murdering them and the Anti-Pope. Blackwood sees through Sabrina and Nick’s trick and removes their glamour. Sabrina denounces Father Blackwood as a fraud and accuses him of murdering her father and the Anti-Pope. Ambrose appears and tries to kill Blackwood, but Prudence magically restrains him. He is then subdued and captured by the other Judas Society boys.
Father Blackwood announces that he and Zelda, formally known as Lady Blackwood, will be escorting the Anti-Pope's remains to the Vatican Necropolis. He and Zelda also plan to have a honeymoon abroad. Blackwood tasks Prudence with overseeing the Academy and protecting their family name. Prudence replies that he can rely on her.
Several days have pasted since Zelda and Father Blackwood left for their honeymoon. Sabrina tries to enter the Academy, but her hands are burnt due to her expulsion. She bangs on the gate. Prudence opens the door and reminds Sabrina of her expulsion. Sabrina demands to see her cousin Ambrose. Prudence refuses because Ambrose allegedly murdered the Anti-Pope and tried to kill her father. Sabrina believes Ambrose is innocent. Sabrina appeals to Prudence as a friend, but Prudence counters that Sabrina only uses her and the Weird Sisters. Sabrina reminds Prudence that she saved her life at the Feast of Feasts, but Prudence counters she had selfish motives and that they were merely allies of convenience.
Ambrose is working out in his cell when Dorcas enters with his gruel rations. Ambrose requests something more succulent and rubs his body against Dorcas. Prudence tells Ambrose to get away from her sister, shoving Dorcas to the ground and her to drop the tray of gruel. She chides Dorcas for her infatuation with Ambrose. Ambrose tries to flirt with Prudence, but she denounces him as a traitor and tells him that he will rot in this cell until he provides a confession. Ambrose says he has spent 75 years under house arrest and that it will take more to break him. Prudence allows the Infernal Bailiff to rough Ambrose up.
Prudence denies Hilda access to the Academy as she wishes to bring a plump chicken for Ambrose. However, Hilda offers the chicken to Prudence and the Weird Sisters in exchange for allowing her to visit Ambrose. But Prudence says her father won't allow it. Hilda implores Prudence to let her visit Ambrose, but she remains impassive. Prudence eventually concedes. Prudence allows Hilda to spend time with "Ambrose",who in actuality to Agatha in glamour. Prudence then leads "Hilda", who is actually Dorcas, into Ambrose's cell in hopes of getting Ambrose to confess to killing the Anti-Pope. However, both Ambrose and Hilda see past their tricks.
Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha torment Ambrose by throwing him the bones from Hilda's succulent chicken. While going through the bones, Ambrose finds that one of the bones has a hidden key.
The Weird Sisters have gathered the students in the lobby. With their help, Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas tell the students that tonight they are collecting their energies to enact a spell of compulsion. She enlists their help on forcing Ambrose to confess to the murder of the Anti-Pope. The witches and warlocks begin chanting in unison. Ambrose escapes his cell and warns the Academy that the witch-hunters have come. Prudence orders the other witches and warlocks to hide while she and the Weird Sisters face the intruders. Jerathmiel and Mehitable enter the lobby and demand that the witches and warlocks come out of hiding.
Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas emerge from hiding and use magic to force the two witch-hunters to their knees. She tells Jerathmiel that the pain in his head is his brain atomizing into sand and Mehitable that the pain in her chest are her lungs hardening. The Weird Sisters tell the witch-hunters that they are no ordinary witches but they are the daughters of the Church of Night, the "Three-In-One." However, Mehitable and Jerathmiel call upon the heavenly choir of the Nine Principalities to give them victory over the witches, causing the Weird Sisters to bleed from their eyes and ears. Mehitable and Jerathmiel tell them that they are no ordinary witch-hunters, but they are angels.
The Weird Sisters, along with the rest of the witches and warlocks are taken captive by the witch-hunters and locked up in the desecrated church. Prudence, Dorcas, and Agatha, are tied up and are to be burned at the stake. He tells them that God will forgive their sins if they vow to accept Him as their Savior. He adds that their bodies will be consumed and purified by the fire of righteousness. When Elspeth refuses to denounce the Dark Lord, Jerathmiel slits her throat. Sabrina arrives and he shoots her down with arrows. Presumably killing her. Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas are distraught. He then turns his attention to Melvin and kills him. Jerathmiel is about to burn the Weird Sisters when Sabrina suddenly awakens and starts to levitate. She demands that the witch-hunters convert to Lucifer's faith. Sabrina summons fire with her hands and forces Jerathmiel and Mehitable to their knees. After Jerathmiel and Mehitable have uttered the prayer, Sabrina burns them alive.
Following the destruction of the angelic witch-hunters, the witches and warlocks return to the Academy. Harvey carries an unconscious Sabrina back to the Academy of Unseen Arts. He is followed by the Weird Sisters, Elspeth, Melvin, and the remaining liberated students. Sabrina awakens, pulls the arrow out her chest, and miraculously heals Ambrose.
Prudence enters the cafeteria with Dorcas and Agatha and mocks Sabrina as she preaches her father's teachings and philosophies. Prudence says that mortals hate and fear witches and is astounded that Sabrina expects witches to be with them. Sabrina counters that her father married a mortal. Prudence disagrees. Knowing that she is unable to convince Prudence and the Weird Sisters with her words, Sabrina uses her powers to cause rose petals to fall. Prudence is frightened and asks Sabrina how she is doing this.
Father Blackwood returns from his honeymoon to deal with the aftermath of the attack with the Council. Methuselah announces that due to their heroic efforts in combating the angels, he allows Sabrina and Nick to continue their studies at the Academy of Unseen Arts with full privileges. As for Ambrose, he will be executed per witch law and custom. Sabrina and Hilda protest that Ambrose was being controlled by his familiar which Father Blackwood gave him. She thinks that Ambrose was puppetered into committing murder. Methuselah gives Sabrina and Hilda 24 hours to present the familiar or Ambrose will be executed by guillotine. After Sabrina has left, Prudence gains permission to speak and observes that Sabrina loves her cousin and will do anything to save him from execution including performing a miracle. Methuselah warns that if Sabrina uses her powers to interfere with tomorrow’s execution, the Council will take lethal action against the girl.
Prudence visits Ambrose in his cell and taunts him, however, Ambrose thinks Sabrina will save him. She asks him what he knows about Sabrina's miracles and clarifies that she is asking for herself. Prudence confides that seeing Sabrina come back from the dead made her cry. Prudence asks Ambrose what is Sabrina. Ambrose tells Prudence to ask her for herself. Ambrose admits that he is frightened. Prudence tells him not to be frightened because he lives with honor and will die with it. She bids him "may Satan keep you."
At the desecrated church, the Church of Night have gathered for the execution of Ambrose. Due to the lack of new evidence, Methuselah orders that Ambrose's execution to proceed as planned. The Infernal Bailiff drags Ambrose before the guillotine and places his head in the block. The executioner lowers the blade but is instead beheaded by a killing spell. Ambrose laughs. Blackwood asks Prudence how Sabrina did it, but Prudence says that Sabrina did not move or blink. It is Hilda who is holding a pair of pruning shears and a decapitated poppet. Before long, the Dark Lord appears. Lucifer chastises him for degrading the coven with his pettiness and orders Ambrose spared before disappearing. Methuselah declares that Ambrose is reprieved and orders his release.
Prudence asks her father about the new strict rules at the Academy such as an evening curfew, no unchaperoned incantations, and no enrollment in the higher, darker magics. Blackwood confirms this is correct. Prudence points out that these new rules only apply to the witches and not the warlocks. Blackwood replies that the witches should focus on the more feminine magics of herbalism and fertility. Prudence asks if the Dark Lord revealed these tenets to him. Blackwood confirms that the tenets are his, claiming that they are derived from his many years of Satanic scholarship. Prudence asks if these rules apply to her. Blackwood asks Prudence to be his strong Left Hand and to help the other girls understand and accept the Blackwood Doctrine and their "vital place" in the Church of Judas. He tells her to do that in return for being exempt from the strictures, adding that the Blackwoods are exempt from these restrictions. Blackwood kisses her and Prudence departs.
Elspeth is dragged to Father Blackwood's office by several members of the Judas Society. They tell Father Blackwood that she tried to abandon the Church of Judas and seek out the "Apostate" Sabrina. Blackwood demands her execution but Zelda asks if it is wise to martyr this girl. Prudence supports Zelda and says that executing Elspeth would provoke an uprising. Blackwood agrees but orders the Judas boys to throw Elspeth into the Witches' Cell. Elspeth is dragged sobbing into the cells. Blackwood orders that she also be starved. He orders Zelda and Prudence to take their leave
At the Witches' Cell, Zelda brings Elspeth a basket of food and tells her that she will find a way of getting her out. She reassures Elspeth that not everyone subscribes to Father Blackwood's draconian gospel. Prudence catches them and denounces Zelda as a traitor, warning that Zelda will be spending her last days here once she tells Father Blackwood. Zelda warns that they will all end up in the dungeon. but Prudence claims that she has Blackwood's name. Zelda replies that so does she and says that Blackwood's only wish is to subjugate them. Prudence replies she is a Blackwood by blood, but Zelda argues that she helped her to hide Leticia. Zelda tells Prudence that she knows the truth of her father’s barbarism before walking out.
Zelda enters the room, asking Blackwood how she may be of service. Also present are Prudence and two Judas boys. Prudence steps aside and Father Blackwood is shown with Leticia. Blackwood denounces Zelda as a traitor and demands to know how long the Caligari spell has been broken. Blackwood is furious with Zelda for lying to him by claiming that baby Judas consumed his twin. Zelda begs for the babe but Blackwood refuses. Prudence responds that Blackwood is her father. Zelda uses magic to summon a knife and threatens to slit Prudence's throat. She demands that Blackwood let her and Leticia go. Blackwood flatly tells her to kill Prudence because he has his legitimate daughter in his hands. He vows that Zelda will not be leaving the Academy at all. Zelda lets Prudence go and drops the blade. Blackwood orders the boys to take her away.
Prudence has dinner with her father and asks him about his plans for Baby Leticia. Blackwood responds that he plans to rename her Judith. Believing that her twin birth is destined for greatness, he says that Judith will have the best of everything including her own private tutors. He says that she will have her Dark Baptism at the age of sixteen. Blackwood also plans to marry Judith to her brother Judas to ensure the purity of the Blackwood bloodline. After dinner with her father, Prudence breaks into the Witch's Cell to set Zelda free as she was right about Faustus. Zelda offers Prudence and Leticia asylum at the mortuary, but Prudence is unwilling to leave Judith, Dorcas and Agatha behind. Zelda vows to go to the Council to end this lunacy.
At the Academy of Unseen Arts, Prudence approaches Dorcas and Agatha for their help. They reject being called sisters, seeing as they don't share the Blackwood name. When Prudence reveals to them of her plan to kill Faustus Blackwood, she gains their attention. How they will do it since he won’t let them get close, they ask. Prudence replies that they won't need to and shows a red ribbon. The Weird Sisters sing and dance around a statue of Father Blackwood while holding the red cloth in a triangle. Blackwood leaves his office and finds the Weird Sisters in the lobby. He tells Prudence that the Dark Lord has summoned him and that she must attend.
After being reprimanded by the Dark Lord, Father Blackwood packs his bag. Prudence inquires about this, he tells her to pack a suitcase for the twins and to bring only necessities. Prudence asks why they should run from the Dark Lord. Blackwood angrily responds that he will not bow down to a Spellman whore. Hence, they will be leaving Greendale by nightfall. What of the rest of the coven, Prudence asks. Blackwood reveals that he has poisoned them at Communion. Horrified by this, Prudence rushes to the Desecrated Church despite Blackwood's warning that leaving him now means leaving the twins forever. Taking a last look at her half-siblings, she vows to kill her father wherever he goes. She arrives at the Desecrated Church to find Agatha and Dorcas choking on poison.
Prudence teleports herself and the other Weird Sisters to the Spellman household. Prudence begs Zelda, Hilda, and Ambrose to help her Sisters and reveals that Blackwood poisoned the entire Coven. She tells Zelda that they are still alive and are at the Desecrated Church. While Hilda and Prudence attend to the Weird Sisters, Zelda and Ambrose teleport themselves to the Desecrated Church.
Afterward, Ambrose asks Prudence how her sisters are. Prudence thanks Hilda for saving their lives. Ambrose tells Prudence that Father Blackwood used them by exploiting their desire for a father. He says that Blackwood blinded them to the family that they already have. The two hold hands.
Prudence and Ambrose embark on a quest to hunt down Father Blackwood. Before leaving, Prudence beheads Blackwood’s statue. She tells Ambrose that her father won’t be easy to hunt down and to kill. Ambrose vows to seek his true destiny as a witch, something shared by Prudence.
New Orleans. Faustus Blackwood has taken up the companionship of Ms. Dubois. Once inside, Ms. Dubois removes her glamour, revealing herself to be Prudence. And behind Faustus stands Ambrose. Prudence demands to know where to find Judas and Judith. Should he refuse to answer, Ambrose assures him they can extract the information from his corpse using necromancy. Faustus pleads with Prudence, but she stabs him with her sword, killing Faustus. Unfortunately, who she initially believed to be her father was merely one of his Judas boys wearing a glamour.
No matter how close Prudence and Ambrose have gotten, Father Blackwood has managed to elude them at every turn. Ambrose recalls that Faustus is a master of the mystic arts, and they were merely his students. Everything they know about witchcraft, he taught them. Prudence proposes they use a different type of witchcraft. A form he didn’t teach them.
Prudence and Ambrose enter a voodoo shop in search of real "hoodoo vodou magick", where they make the acquaintance of Mambo Michele Marie Le Fleur, who upon first glance, recognizes them as real witches, as opposed to tourists. She introduces herself as Priestess of High Haiti, daughter of Tiano people, faithful to Guinee. She makes one thing clear; that she doesn’t do "watered-down New Orleans vodou, hoodoo bullshit." They’re in a Haitian house, and the vodou practice is a way of life. She refers to them as New England witches. Prudence and Ambrose explain that they need her help in tracking down someone. Mambo Marie informs them that they’ll need a world map and something that belonged to Blackwood. Prudence offers her blood as she is his daughter.
Prudence and Ambrose use blood magick to perform a locator spell on Father Blackwood. Prudence cuts her hand with Mambo Marie’s knife and bleeds onto a map, which indicates that Father Blackwood is in Scotland. Loch Ness, to be exact. Prudence and Ambrose then proceed to have sex.
Prudence and Ambrose have traveled to Scotland in search of Father Blackwood. Ambrose explains that the Loch Ness lies atop a powerful rift along the Earth's ley lines. Aleister Crowley himself once harnessed its energies for his own higher magick, which could warp the fabric of time. Prudence demands blood for the pain her father has caused her, and Ambrose assures her she will have it soon enough.
Prudence and Ambrose finally catch up to Father Blackwood near a river whilst he’s in the middle of a summoning ritual. Faustus, unaware that Prudence and Ambrose has tracked him down, calls upon the watery guardians of the west to rise. 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.
Prudence and Ambrose are at odds on what to do with Blackwood. They’ve circumnavigated the world in search of him, so Prudence wants to get through with killing him, however, Ambrose has questions for Faustus, such as what was he doing in Scotland and what did he mean by the old ones and the eldritch terrors. Ambrose wants to take Blackwood and the egg back to Greendale for interrogation, and then he could answer for his crimes in front of the entire coven. Prudence is hellbent on revenge, ignoring any reason Ambrose could possibly have to spare Blackwood. 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.
Ambrose and Prudence teleport home with Father Blackwood as their prisoner, presenting the Spellmans with a new prison for the Dark Lord.
Prudence and Ambrose show Judith and Judas to their room. Ambrose assures them that they’ll be safe and entertained. Prudence promises to check in on them from time to time. Ambrose performed a living-doll spell to ensure that they won’t realize the passing of days nor feel hunger or pain. As for the egg, which Ambrose has placed in his fish tank, he intends to wait it out to see what happens. Prudence and Ambrose then start kissing.
At the Academy, Zelda discuss a leadership opportunity with Prudence. She wants to designate her Prefect of Students. Her duties would be administrative as well as teaching. Melvin interrupts to inform Zelda that Gerald is dead. She suspects it was through the Dark Lord’s influence, but Agatha and Dorcas inform her that Gerald tried to fly, but he fell instead. Prudence then looks over to Elspeth, who appears to have caught a cold. Zelda orders that she be taken to a warm bed. She also says that henceforth, there is to be no unsupervised flying.
Zelda, Hilda, Ambrose, and Prudence convene to discuss the Church of Night’s current state of crisis; a warlock dead and coven members stricken with fevers and weaknesses. Zelda appears to be getting sick as well, which is a great worry for Hilda. Zelda suspects that they may be under attack, perhaps from another coven. Hilda recalls the Council mentioning a loss of potency. Until they know more, it will be business as usual. Hilda will tend to the ill. Distract them so that they don’t start asking questions. Zelda states that they must stand together, and they will prevail.
Zelda returns to the classroom to find Prudence, Agatha, Dorcas, Melvin, and Elspeth reading "Buxom and the Beast." Elspeth explains that it’s a witchy romance novel written by Hilda, which loosely reflects Hilda’s relationships with Dr. Cerberus, and Zelda’s means to end it.
The entire coven gathers in the Greendale woods and sings as tradition would require for the Hare Moon. They form an aisle, which Sabrina walks down the middle of while holding the hare. She then walks the hare into the woods to pardon it. There, she crosses paths with a mysterious group wearing strange masks. Sabrina returns to find that Nick has joined them. However, she is being followed by the mysterious group wearing masks.
The Church of Night is confronted by Pagan witches who are looking for somewhere to celebrate their holiday as well; Ostra. Zelda and Hilda invite Pan, Circe, Nagaina and the rest of their coven to join them. Elspeth asks if they should say a prayer of thanks to Lilith, much to Pan’s surprise, who questions why they wouldn’t pray to their Dark Lord. Zelda tells Elspeth that no prayer is necessary. Pan explains that his coven prays to others.
Dorcas is bitten by a snake and falls to the ground. Nagaina takes her leg and sucks the venom out. Nick returns with the snake after cutting it in half. Nagaina is enraged, referring to Nick as a murderer and explaining that it was the snake’s home they invaded. With that, Pan, Circe, and Nagaina decides to take their people and leave. Zelda agrees, stating that they were there first. Pan retorts that the pagans were there first, before the false god. Before the Dark Lord, the old gods reigned, and the pagans worshiped them. Now, something has happened and their time has come around again.
They gather to discuss their recent run-in with pagans. Zelda asks Nick what does he have to say for himself after killing a snake in front of Nagaina. Ambrose points out that they probably worship snakes. Nick is unapologetic. Zelda informs the coven that pagans are not to be trifled with, especially not while they’re without powers. Hilda suggests sending an offering to make amends. She asks Nick to give them her Moon pie, but he refuses, exclaiming that he’s done enough to protect the coven and storms off. In his place, Zelda asks Dorcas to take the pie. She agrees and Prudence offers to send Melvin and Agatha with her, but Dorcas turns down the security. Prudence sends Agatha nonetheless.
The coven, save for Nick, Agatha, and Dorcas, apply the sacred oil all over their exposed body as the moon peaks. The coven lays down on the ground and forms a circle as Hilda explains why they honor the Hare Moon. It’s light will shine on them, and they will reclaim their power. Hilda looks to the moon and asks that it bless them with its gifts and energies. They offer their bodies in exchange for their magicks multiplying in the spirit of the Hare. They holds hands to seal the circle and their skin glows blue. The moon suddenly darkens above the Church of Night. Ambrose remarks that an eclipse would be impossible at such a time, leaving Zelda and Hilda to conclude that they’re under attack by the pagans. The moon bath won’t work under the eclipsed moon. Zelda orders Sabrina, Ambrose, Prudence, Melvin, and Elspeth to gather their belongings and return to the Academy, even with that meaning leaving Nick and Prudence’s sisters unprotected and lost in the woods. Zelda explains that once the coven has fortified behind their walls, only then will they plot their counter-attack.
The Church of Night reconvenes in the dormitory, where they will sleep together so that everyone is protected. However, they discover that their beds are infested with snakes. Melvin then informs the coven that the pagans are outside. They open the Academy’s doors to find Pan, Nagaina, Circe, and the pagans hidden within the fog. Pan warns them that their time is over and that the old gods are returning, as well as the old ways. He tells them to either bow and pray to their gods or be killed. They have three days to decide. The pagans disappear, leaving behind a crazed Agatha and a petrified Dorcas.
Ambrose watches as Prudence establishes a psychic connection with Agatha to determine what happened to her. Prudence describes Agatha’s mind as a raging storm without any focused thoughts. Ambrose warns Prudence against reordering the thoughts. She only needs to slow them down. Inside Agatha’s mind, Prudence sees the great god Pan, who’s been moonlighting as Professor Carcosa. Agatha was driven insane by his very gaze. Ambrose explains that the great god Pan is amongst the oldest of the pagan monsters. He is madness personified, and his very gaze engenders insanity in witches and mortals alike.
Ambrose takes a tuning fork to Dorcas to hopefully detect some form of energy beneath the stone. The fork reverberates, meaning that deep within the stone, there is life and that Dorcas could possibly still be alive. Their energies are depleted to almost nothing. They must find a way to amplify what they already have, and there may be a way in their backyard. Stonehenge; a circle of ancient stones that have been used to collect and amplify energy for millennia. There's a circle of stones in their woods around the altar they used to perform their rituals where Sabrina was almost baptized. No one’s ever seen it because the circle of stones is underground. But if they use the last of their energies to bring them up, then they may be able to restore power to the coven.
Zelda and Hilda discuss their current dilemma regarding the pagans. Should they surrender, it spells certain doom for the coven. But with their powers waning and the Academy's defenses all but eroded, they stand little chance of defending themselves against the pagans' might. They wonder what Edward would do. She then recovers and reminds Zelda that in a time like this, Edward would call on other witches for help, such as Dezmelda. He'd send out a distress signal to other wayward witches. A summoning spell to assemble the disenfranchised hedge witches. Zelda doubts they have the power to enact such a ritual. However, Ambrose and Prudence interrupt to inform her that they could use the stones buried beneath their clearing to amplify their energies to enhance a distress signal. With a fortified coven, they might stand a chance against the pagans.
Sabrina arrives just as Ambrose, Prudence, Hilda, Zelda, and the remaining members of the coven prepare to summon hedge witches for help against the pagans. Ambrose informs Sabrina that Nick is fine. He’s even applied leeches to suck the toxicity out his body.
Their powers are depleted and their pagan enemies are closing in. Sabrina, Ambrose, Prudence, Hilda, Zelda, and the coven will use the very last of their natural magicks to call upon the wayward witches to join them as they stand within a circle of ancient stones. Together, they have the power to amplify their energy to broadcast their message. But it is up to them and their psychic intention to set them in harmony. As the Church of Night sends out a distress signal to any wayward witches, Agatha interrupts the summoning ceremony and breaks one of the stones in half with a sledgehammer. She then turns her attentions to Dorcas, but Prudence tackles Agatha and puts her in a choke hold as she explains that the Dark Lord freed her. With Agatha having interrupted the summoning ritual, Ambrose is doubtful any witches received their request for help. Melvin then arrives to inform the coven that the pagans killed Elspeth. Surrender was never an option. The pagans want to kill the Church of Night for their blood.
Gryla points out that the Church of Night has always turned their kind, hedge witches, away. For centuries, they've had to brave the wilderness alone. She questions why she should help them. Zelda explains that their numbers are depleted. Their magicks non-existent. They need strength, and if the wayward witches agree to help, the Academy could be their home too. They could make a new coven together. Mambo Marie admits that there is wisdom in what she says. Better to be united for what is coming. As for the Dark Lord, he’s still at large but trapped in a flesh Acheron, with his strength muted. Zelda asks that the witches stand with them against the pagans when they come in three days. She tells Pesta to poison the soil around the Academy so if any pagan touches it, they'll shrivel with disease. As for sleeping quarters, Zelda has arranged for them to stay at the Desecrated Church and tells Sabrina, Prudence, and Nick to prep it.
Prudence confronts Nick and Sabrina as the three of them prepare the Desecrated Church for the hedge witches. They reveal that they’ve broken up and are only friends. Prudence tells Sabrina that her mortal side is showing and that heartbreak isn’t a good look for witches. She offers to make the pain go away with a cord-cutting spell. All they need is two candles joined by one wick, and whatever emotional ties Sabrina has with Nicholas will be burned away for good. However, Sabrina hopes that they're breakup is temporary and that they will get back together. Prudence says that Sabrina and Nick were a mismatch from the start. She asks if Nick ever thanked Sabrina for saving his life and helping him get clean, which he didn’t. Sabrina turns down Prudence’s romantic advice and leaves.
Prudence assists Mambo Marie as she teaches the coven a Haitian dance of protection. However, they are interrupted by Zelda, who is not pleased nor is she amused. Zelda calls Prudence into her office to scold her. Prudence informs Zelda that Mambo Marie is no stranger. Prudence and Ambrose met her in New Orleans. She helped them find Blackwood. It was Prudence who invited Mambo Marie to Greendale. Separate from the summoning. She just happened to arrive at the same time as the hedge witches, but she is certainly not one of them. They are in the fight for their lives against the pagans, and if they’re going to survive it, they’ll need to adapt, Prudence explains, after having witnessed Mambo Marie’s magick firsthand. She doesn't get power from the Dark Lord, she gets it from somewhere else, and if they could learn where, maybe they too could gain power. However, Zelda is stuck in her ways. Never in the history of the Church of Night has an outsider been allowed to lead a ceremony. Prudence accuses Zelda of only inviting the hedge witches because they can't challenge her status. Zelda explains that Mambo Marie is Catholic.
Mambo Marie interrupts and apologizes if Zelda was frightened by her ceremony. She promises that the only spirits she invites in are the ones she knows and trust. Her mèt-tèt told her, long ago, that something was coming. Something very old and very evil and that if she could summon her courage, she might play a role in helping to beat it back. Zelda admits that she’s wary of newcomers but is in no position to refuse help and asks her to stay, as their honored guest.
Sabrina returns to the Academy with Caliban, where she asks Prudence for Ambrose’s whereabouts. There, she is confronted by Nick, who accuses her of moving on with Caliban. Sabrina explains that he’s only helping her save Roz and that she’s never lied to Nick, unlike him, whose lied to her constantly, that is when he wasn’t cheating on her. Even Prudence chimes in to add that Sabrina is right. While Sabrina is sorry for what he endured, she tells Nick that he’s neither a martyr nor innocent. And if he ever disrespects her again, then he can forget about them being friends.
Circe is taken to the Academy where she is bound in chains and held at gunpoint by Sabrina, Harvey, Ambrose, Prudence, Theo, and Robin. Sabrina demands that she return Roz and Dorcas back to flesh. If she refuses, they’ll just cut off her hands. Circe submits and turns Roz and Dorcas back to flesh. Prudence embraces Dorcas. The Same goes for Harvey with Roz. Robin then tells Circe to turn Billy, Carl, Martin, and Eric back into humans. Circe informs Robin that Pan and Nagaina will kill him for betraying them. As the boys are turned back into humans, Prudence compels them and leads them out of the Academy.
At the Academy, Prudence informs Ambrose, Dorcas, Theo, Robin, Roz, Harvey, and Sabrina that the Circe is in the dungeon and the boys are back home, none the wiser. Harvey welcomes Robin into the Fright Club and tells Roz that she’ll never lose him.
At Prudence and Ambrose’s behest, Mambo Marie teaches Judas and Judith the way of Hatian Vodou, such as how a mèt-tèt is a guardian spirit that watches over them from the moment they are born. They each have one, as everyone is worthy of its guidance. Prudence and Ambrose look on from the edge of the room, where Prudence admits that while she may have invited Mambo Marie, she came for her own reasons. Until they’re revealed, Prudence wants her to teach them her ways.
The gunshot fired by Mary Wardwell echoes throughout Spellman Mortuary. Sabrina and Ambrose find Zelda bleeding out on the floor. Ambrose runs for help as Sabrina stays by Zelda’s side. He returns with Prudence and Mambo Marie. They take Zelda downstairs into the embalming room and remove the bullet. They’re going to need great strength if they are going to save her. While Zelda remains alive, she is stuck in limbo, Mambo Marie explains. All they can do is burn the violet candles and wait to see if Zelda can find her way back. They are startled by sudden loud wailing.
Prudence, Sabrina, and Ambrose find a banshee, otherwise known as the wailing woman, lurking outside the mortuary. It’s an omen, meaning at least one member of the Spellman family is going to die soon.
Prudence, Sabrina, and Ambrose recount the current obstacles they are up against, including the encroaching pagans, Zelda trapped in limbo, and Hilda buried in the Cain Pit. Ambrose thinks that he knows of a way to gain power, though it won’t be easy. Ambrose found a siphoning spell. If they can get the hedge witches into the center of the stone circle, they can take their energy and replenish their coven. Unfortunately, with the hedge witches being older and few in numbers, the siphoning would likely kill them. Sabrina suggests that they find another way. Unless Sabrina knows of a more nubile coven to bring into the circle, they don’t have any other options. Sabrina claims that while it may be the very definition of an unholy Magdalene, she believes that she already belongs to another "coven." The Baxter High Ravenettes.
Sabrina and Roz take Lizzie and the Ravenettes to the Academy, where Ambrose and Melvin wait to perform the ritual. Prudence arrives in search of Dorcas, but no one has seen her. Sabrina, Ambrose, Prudence, and Melvin begin chanting in Latin as Roz, Lizzie, and the Ravenettes perform their flash mob routine. The ritual goes as planned, leaving the Ravenettes weakened and tired. Faustus arrives through the secret door with the pagans. Sabrina closes the door, and the Church of Night and Ravenettes take each other’s hands and teleport to safety.
Sabrina, Ambrose, Prudence, Melvin, and the remaining members of the Church of Night teleport to Pandamonium. Sabrina tells Ambrose, Prudence, and Melvin that her father is no longer bonded to Blackwood. Lucifer and Lilith arrive and inform Sabrina that the Plague Kings have called for the third and final challenge. It’s up to Sabrina to retrieve Judas Iscariot’s 30 pieces of silver and secure the throne of Hell for the House of Morningstar. However, Sabrina would rather attend to her aunts. Ambrose and Prudence tell Sabrina that they'll deliver the effigies to Hilda and Zelda and protect them from Blackwood until they recover. The power siphoning might have worked, but Ambrose fears it is only temporary, and with a war brewing with the pagans, they’ll need power, which Sabrina could gain in winning the Unholy Regalia. Lilith reveals that she’s pregnant and that Sabrina has a little brother on the way. Sabrina tells Ambrose and Prudence to protect her aunts while the rest of the coven stay hidden in Hell.
Ambrose and Prudence return to the mortuary, where they inform Mambo Marie that the effigy is infused with life force. With any luck, its power will transfer into Zelda. Mambo Marie informs them that it is no longer a matter of Zelda’s physical body needing healing. It’s her soul that must find its way back. With the Academy under the control of Father Blackwood and the pagans, Ambrose fears that they’ll be coming there next. He asks Mambo Marie to watch over Zelda as they protect the house. He then orders Prudence to stay inside and protect the inside while he holds the perimeter against the banshee and Blackwood.
Inside the Spellman house, Prudence is on guard. She follows the sound of Agatha’s laughter. She finds Agatha with a knife in hand, covered in Dorcas’ blood. Agatha charges at Prudence with a knife, and Prudence is forced to kill her, stabbing Agatha in the abdomen with her sword. Agatha tries to warn Prudence that Blackwood is near, but she fails to get the message out, allowing Faustus to sneak up from behind and stab Prudence.
Ambrose rushes back inside to find Prudence bleeding and dying from her wounds. Ambrose holds her tight, as she reveals that Blackwood is inside, and he’s looking for Judas and Judith, among other things. Prudence tells Ambrose to stop him. And so, Ambrose lays Prudence back on the floor and teleports away. Prudence, in her dying moments, places her hand over Agatha’s.
Sabrina teleports into the embalming room to warn Ambrose, Prudence, and Mambo Marie that Blackwood is on the way to kill them. Sabrina insists that they leave or else they’ll all die. Sabrina, Ambrose, Prudence, Mambo Marie, and Zelda relocate to Dorian's Gray Room. Sabrina tells Prudence that the hedge witches are locked in the Desecrated Church. If she brings them to Dorian’s, they might be able to bolster Zelda’s strength. Ambrose questions how Sabrina knows all of this, but she can’t tell him. Sabrina the leaves in search of her friends
Sabrina returns to Dorian’s, where Ambrose, Prudence, Mambo Marie, Gryla, Pesta, Sycorax, Dezmelda, Mother Hubbard, Melvin, and the coven have gathered. Zelda awakens with the knowledge of her to repower the coven and defeat the pagans. Zelda then asks about Hilda, who hasn’t resurrected from the Cain Pit. Zelda saw the future, and Hilda lives to be an old crone. Zelda will use what she learned in the next life to drag her back into this life.
Zelda returns to the Cain Pit, where she buried Hilda, and with the help of Sabrina, Roz, Pesta, Dezmelda, Gryla, Mambo Marie, Sycorax, Mother Hubbard, and several other witches, call on the triple goddess Hecate. The wind suddenly stops blowing and Hilda’s hand rises from the dirt. After digging Hilda up, Sabrina, Zelda, Ambrose, Prudence, Theo, Robin, Nick, Melvin, Roz, and Harvey discuss the pagans and just how they intend to stop them from implanting everyone in town with the Green Man’s seed. Hilda suggests using an enchanted lullaby to put everyone to sleep. However, Robin explains that in that case, the pagans will get seeded and offer themselves up. Also, they still need their virgin. Along with Harvey, there’s still Ms. Wardwell, who Zelda recalls shot her. Sabrina will track down Ms. Wardwell while Zelda, Hilda, Ambrose, and Prudence perform an enchanted lullaby to put the entire town to sleep.
After stopping the Pagans from resurrecting the Green Man, Ambrose and Zelda catch up to Pan, who transforms in front of them as his gaze is madness incarnate. However, before they can be driven insane, Prudence stabs Pan with her sword, killing him.
Prudence teleports to the Spellman house to inform Ambrose that they found Dorcas butchered in a cupboard at the Academy by Agatha’s hand. She can’t help but think that if she had killed Blackwood in Scotland when she had the chance then all this calamity could’ve been avoided. But Ambrose wouldn’t allow her to. Prudence blames him for the death of her sister and leaves.
Prudence finds Nick on the Academy's doorstep. Without her sisters, Prudence has never felt so alone. Nick can relate to her feeling of loneliness. Prudence joins him on the step and rests her head on his shoulder.
Prudence has flawless dark skin, and short wavy bleached bone white hair to contrast with her dark skin. She also has luscious lips and dark brown eyes. She is a girl of tall stature with a slim figure. Her attire consists of a lace-collared dark purple dress with black tights and shoes. In addition, she wears dark makeup to accentuate her dark witchy persona. Underneath her human appearance, she has a more ghoulish appearance, consisting of gray skin, glowing green eyes, no nose and black-rimmed teeth.
Prudence can be arrogant, proud, ambitious, cruel, and vicious, as well as intelligent and cunning. But she is also capable of compassion and kindness. Due to her upbringing, Prudence has a hard time expressing simple pleasantries. She is the leader of the Weird Sisters, and as such, believes in order and balance. After discovering that Agatha and Dorcas plotted to kill Harvey and Tommy Kinkle, she aligned herself with Sabrina and punished Agatha for her wrongdoing. Despite this, Prudence shares her sisters' hatred for the Kinkle family, as they are descendants from known witch hunters, to which Prudence holds a great amount of disdain towards.
Prudence also has a long-standing rivalry with Sabrina, consistently attacking her over her dual nature of being half-mortal and half-witch, referring to her as "half breed". In spite of this, Prudence has shown her will to put their differences aside to work with Sabrina on multiple occasions, such as when they punished several football players for their behavior towards women and tricking Constance Blackwood into confessing that she enchanted the ballot box to favor Prudence as Queen of the Feast of Feasts.

Prudence has a close relationship, with her sisters, Dorcas and Agatha. The three witches grew up together as orphans in the Church of Night. The three sisters look down on Sabrina Spellman for being half-mortal. Prudence has no qualms about punishing them, if they do something wrong; for example, killing mortals without Prudence's permission. Despite this Prudence cares deeply about her Sisters as she got worried when Agatha got sick, and was devastated when Father Blackwood poisoned them going so far to beg the Spellmans to save them.
When Ambrose started working at the Academy of Unseen Arts, Prudence began a temporary affair with him during the Lupercalia, while his boyfriend Luke left the country on behalf of her father. After the strange death of Luke and the imprisonment of Ambrose in the Witch's Cell, Prudence was his ruthless overseer.
They had despised each other for a long time, but her attitude toward Ambrose began to change for the better when he decided to stay at the Academy to warn the witches about the witch-hunters' attack instead of running away and saving himself.
Later, Prudence begs Ambrose and his aunties to help her Weird Sisters and reveals that her father poisoned the entire Coven. When they and the coven were saved, Ambrose asks Prudence how her sisters are and tells her that Faustus Blackwood used them by exploiting their desire for a father and he blinded them to the family that they already have. The two hold hands.
After defeating Lucifer, Prudence and Ambrose embark on a quest to hunt down Father Blackwood. Before leaving, Prudence beheads Blackwood’s statue and tells Ambrose that her father won’t be easy to hunt down and to kill. Ambrose vows to seek his true destiny as a witch, something shared by Prudence.
Prudence and initially seemed to despise and look down on Sabrina for being half-mortal, evident by their numerous encounters, such as when she, Agatha and Dorcas put a blood curse on her, to convince her not to come to the Academy of Unseen Arts and put her through the Harrowing, a cruel hazing ritual at Academy. However, their relationship isn't always so antagonistic. When Prudence is selected as the Queen of the Feast of Feasts, Sabrina tries to convince her to decline the opportunity. However, Sabrina’s efforts are hindered by Prudence's suborn faith in the Dark Lord. Prudence also teams up with Sabrina to punish Agatha for killing Tommy Kinkle and gladly agreed to help Sabrina with her Seance. Despite this, Prudence doesn’t think that she and Sabrina are friends, as Sabrina only talked to her and her sisters when she needs something from them.
Prudence has a great amount of respect for Zelda, for her devoutness to the Dark Lord and the Church of Night. She helps Zelda hide Faustus Blackwood's daughter Leticia to protect her. After Zelda marries Father Blackwood, she became Prudence’s stepmother. In that time, Zelda showed Prudence how Father Blackwood was a ruthless misogynist who would let her die if he had to.
A far cry from their counterparts who despise Sabrina for her mixed heritage alone.
Prudence is comparable to Cassandra, a character in the animated series Sabrina's Secret Life. Like Prudence, Cassandra is a witch who has a rivalry with Sabrina Spellman, and who is blood related to a high authority figure in the witch community.
