Welcome back Nancy Drew fans! It has been a long time. We’ve missed you all and this show so much. We honestly didn’t know when or if it would come back on, but we are glad it did. We also have something to watch on Wednesday nights!
The premiere episode of season two, “The Curse of the Midnight Wraith”, picks up hours after the season one finale and we loved that! Nancy and her friends are troubled (as they should be) that the Aglaeca will kill them next. Basically, the creature plans on plucking them off one by one. So, if they want to survive and live to tell the tale they better think fast and get their asses in gear. Time is freaking ticking! That ghost is hungry and ready to eat a tasty redhead. We have a lot to unpack in this episode of Nancy Drew’s “The Curse of The Midnight Wraith,” so let’s dive in shall we.
Why Are The Cops Always On Nancy’s Ass?
Nancy cannot throw a stone into Horseshoe Bay without a cop wanting to arrest her for something. We would be so tired of that if we were her. This episode was no different, but honestly we didn’t catch the cops name because WE DON’T CARE! He just seemed like an ass. The entire purpose of his role was to tell Nancy that he had his eyes on her because he thought she was suspect. But we suspect he had some other intentions as well. EWWWW!
All Nancy is ever trying to do is solve, the mystery and this time her life and the rest of the scooby gangs lives are in danger. She ain’t got no time to be answering police questions about a girl they found in the woods, #vomitemoji.
The Bobbsey Twin(s)
We never thought we would see the famous Bobbsey Twins in Horseshoe Bay, but like now, we have really seen everything! We have to admit, we’ve never read any of the books growing up, but we still know who they are nonetheless.
On Nancy Drew, they are thieves who also do a little bit of sleuthing on the side. The male Bobbsey “Gil” is an asshole, but he’s cute and maybe kind of into Nancy? We got that vibe. Did anyone else get that vibe? Lets hope he returns some more this season. His sister meanwhile is in the hospital thanks to the wraith in the woods, but we think she’ll pull through.
“Damn! The Bobbsey twins are hardcore.” That’s a direct quote from George and it’s so true. Gil’s ass stole a mirror from Nancy’s bio dad, Ryan, that can help defeat the Aglaeca. How did Gil get into Ryan’s lodge? How did he know which mirror to steal? These are the questions we had, and now we want those damn twins to join up with the Scooby Gang and defeat all the ghosts in town dammit!
Its All Bess’s Fault Really
None of this would have happened if it weren’t Bess posting on Twitter that Nancy needed help defeating a sea monster and that a “mysterious” mirror was the key. So, if Nancy herself couldn’t find the mirror, how in the hell did Gil? Again, who knew that a woman in Ryan Hudson’s family would have been the first sacrifice to the Aglaeca? Not us, and by then we were utterly confused.
Who can Nancy trust? Her birth family is freaking conniving and ruthless. Her grandfather tried to kill her before she was born. Her birth mother jumped off a cliff on the night she was born, then came back to haunt her 19 years later. Shit gets real in Nancy’s world.
We will say that Ryan had no idea about the mirror; otherwise, I think he would have helped Nancy locate it. We do feel like he has the potential to be a good person. But honey, that grandfather! Oooh weee! He is not to be tangled with. What made us chuckle is when Ace noticed some similarities Nancy has with her grandfather. Like the fact they are both bossy, drag their friends into danger, they are smart, cunning, and they both cross their arms and twitch their fingers when angry. Good job Ace! Ace is kinda salty with Nancy right now and it’s causing some un-needed tension in the group, so we pray that gets resolved soon.
Just Sing A Sea Shanty and Everything Will Be Fine!
Alright guys, show of hands who knew that the mirror itself would not defeat the Aglaeca? That you had to break it and find the hidden note inside? We were like, wait a minute! Why the hell is Nancy breaking the mirror!?! WTF? You almost died girl and now you are breaking the mirror that is supposed to save you?
We came unglued until she read the note hidden side, which basically states the only way to kill this sea demon is the sing an old sea shanty. But what is the name of this song? Alexa, play sea shanties of the 1800’s please. Seriously guys. Come on! That’s what we screamed at our television.
We can’t even imagine everyone going down to the sea and singing and holding hands. We are actually kind of looking forward to it, truthfully. Someone in that group has to be able to sing right? If not they will all die, horrible gruesome deaths. Nancy girl, you in danger!
