We are here one more week! Chapelwaite 1×05 “The Prophet” is the episode where everything heats up, long-buried feelings and secrets begin to come to light and the Boone family’s past becomes more real than ever. Time for review!
Here we go!
Chapelwaite 1×05 “The Prophet” begins by treating the consequences of what happened in the previous episode. Loa is talking with Charles and for the first time we see Loa express her feelings about everything that is going on. Jakub promised that she can see her mother again and that promise, for a little girl who has just lost her mother is something very tempting. She misses her, it hurts that she is no longer there and wants to see her again.
Besides, it hurts Loa to see how, apparently, her father turned the page in such a short time. She saw him, she saw the way he looks at Rebecca and she feels… she feels that her father is replacing her mother with Rebecca and that she will, overnight, take her mother’s place and she doesn’t want to. She doesn’t want anyone to do it. For Loa, her mother is still there, with her, everywhere and it hurts her to see that her father doesn’t feel the same and that makes her doubt … it makes her doubt that he loved her as much as she always thought, as much as she loves her.
Charles tries to make her see that no matter what happens – or doesn’t happen – with Rebecca, she will never be able to replace her mother and she would never want to. Here, he’s acknowledging his interest in Rebecca but he knows that both would respect the place of the kids’ mother and not rush into anything … only Loa doesn’t see it that way. She has seen how they look at each other and it hurts a lot that her father is considering letting another woman into his life. And it’s completely normal for her to feel that way.
It doesn’t mean that Loa doesn’t love Rebecca, she loves her very much but she’s afraid of forgetting her mother, of betraying her, if she accepts that another person takes her place in her father’s life and in her life too. Everything gets complicated when she finds out the truth about Rebecca and her book. Loa feels betrayed, disappointed that she had come to appreciate Rebecca and love her…and the worst thing is that no one believes her.
Honor is reluctant to believe it at first, how could she if the only thing she has received from Rebecca has been understanding, love, advice, affection… but yes, there is no doubt. Everything is a big lie. Rebecca never really cared for them, they never mattered to her, they were only a means to an end. How could she be fooled? How could she trust her? Honor, like Loa, feels stupid for having trusted her.
But the truth is that nothing is like that anymore. For Rebecca it started that way but, as we said in episode 1, the Boone family got under Rebecca’s skin and now she cares for them and she loves them, including Charles. That tormented and good man entered her heart without her being aware of it and now, her destiny is inevitably linked to the Boone family, although no one believes her right now.
We hope they do, we hope it’s not too late for the Boone family to forgive her.
As this happens, Charles comes face to face with his past in Chapelwaite 1×05 “The Prophet.” Jakub waits for Charles to tell him about what is happening and tells him a story about madness, undead, vampires, and an enchanted book. A chilling story … it seems that no matter how hard Charles tries to escape his family history, he won’t be able to.
Those who appear dead are alive and Charles is the only one who can break the curse. All this seems crazy, a story that makes our hair stand on end but, at the same time, we cannot wait to completely unravel and find out everything that is behind it. But now we are concerned that Jakub told Charles not to fight that darkness but that endangers the kids, right?
That is, Charles is starting to become violent and he doesn’t want to harm his family, he wants to protect them and if he lets in whatever is possessing him he will not be able to protect them … although it is the only way to end all this forever. It is not an easy choice …
That final scene … what happened to Loa? She can’t be dead, she can’t be dead! We need her to be okay and to know what happened from the moment she ran away because whatever it is, we’re sure it’s got to do with Stephen and Jakub Boone. And so, with our hearts on edge, Chapelwaite 1×05 “The Prophet” ends.
On the other hand, when I think I can’t love Able and Honor more, Chapelwaite 1×05 “The Prophet” comes to show me how wrong I was. Able offers to stay at Chapelwaite with Charles and help or protect him from whatever it comes. His head tells him to get away from Honor and the Boone family but his heart just can’t get away from Honor… so he’s with her the only way he thinks he can.
Able continues to believe that a relationship between them is impossible but separating from her is not an option and less when he feels that she and her family may be in danger or involved in a disturbing family history that they know nothing about, so he’s there, right by her side, in the only way he can, the only way he feels he has a right, the only way Able believes it will be safe …
What he doesn’t know is that nothing will be. That hug that they have given … neither of them wanted to let go and let the other go and Honor is worried about him. She doesn’t want anything to happen to him but Able would give everything, even his own life, to keep her safe, that’s why he stays at Chapelwaite. That’s love.
I want these two to finally forget their conventions and let themselves be carried away by what they feel. In addition, we believe that Charles already realized what is happening between them by that look he gave them when they were saying goodbye … what do you think? How will his reaction be?
Here ends our review of Chapelwaite 1×05 “The Prophet.” We will be back soon with the review of episode 1×06. Stay tuned!
