This A Discovery of Witches for 3×07 is going to be a little different than the rest. Because before, we’ve divided these bad boys up into three sections, breaking down different aspects of the episode. But there’s one theme that we can’t stop thinking about that lived and breathed through this episode and that made us realize how far Diana has come, how much she’s grown, and how proud of her we are.
Everything that Diana did in A Discovery of Witches 3×07 was a culmination of everything that’s she’s been through these last 3 seasons. So, no. Benjamin didn’t really matter and neither did Satu. They were just pieces in a game of chess that she had slowly but surely mastered through hard work, training, and patience. And their destruction looked easy but it probably wasn’t for Diana.
Our heroine has an immense amount of power within her. And we bet that it took everything within her not to explode with power when she found out that Matthew had been kidnapped, that Benjamin was involved, or that Satu was there waiting for her. Instead, she took the slow route and set a steady pace so when she faced her foes she could conquer them while protecting those that she cares for the most in her life.
The way she destroyed Benjamin was masterful and her channeling her power in a pointed and well throughout manner. Also, it looked pretty badass. What really impressed us is how she couldn’t kill Satu, even after the pain that this witch has inflicted on her. Instead, she bound her, stripping her of her power and pulling an Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender. It was truly a power move that showed her mercy but also her ability to carry down punishment on those that have wronged creatures in general.
Even when she was rescuing Matthew, like the baddie she is, you could tell that it was taking everything in her not to tear the world apart. Because this is Matthew, the love of her life, her partner, and the father of her children. But her training, her patience, and her love for all creatures and humans alike pulled her back and grounded her. And again, it’s the culmination of the love and hope she’s experienced these past few seasons that have led her to where she is now and the conclusion that she has nothing to fear when it comes to embracing who she is.
Finally, the world-changing movements that Diana made for her love, her family, her friends, and all creatures of the world. She could’ve taken power, there’s no doubt about that. But she didn’t. She made a plan and delegated power to the most capable person because that’s what good leaders do and what Diana has become for herself, those who love her, and those who have watched her grow into the brilliant woman she is now.
Now, this isn’t the final time we’ll be talking about Diana Bishop, Matthew Clairmont, or the family they’ve created. But for now, this is where we sign off and say goodbye to A Discovery of Witches and everything this world has given us these last couple year; including the lessons learned, the loves gained, and the people that we’ve met along the way.
