As much as I hate the idea, seeing the posters for “Eclipse Lake” have me somehow semi-preparing for this Hunter x Luz - Luz x Amity love triangle some people seem to want. I really hope that doesn’t happen 😡
For a more realistic theory though, we don’t actually know how Amity’s opinion towards the Emperor’s Coven has changed since “Agony of a Witch” and “Young Blood, Old Souls”. I mean there is her mentor, Lilith’s fall from grace and there is the attack on Lilith, Eda, Luz and King by Emperor Belos. I imagine this has likely shook Amity’s faith in the system but nothing has yet shown a change in heart regarding the Emperor’s Coven. She is still the nerdy straight A student, etc. Some may sight “Escaping Expulsion” as contradicting this but Odalia’s only evidence to claim Amity is being distracted seemed to be the photo, nothing else.
I’m this episode though we know this an Amity centric ep with her helping find an ingredient for Luz’s portal. The episode description says they aren’t the only ones on the trail though.
We know based on the posters, Hunter is in this episode. The new head of the Emperor’s Coven. It is safe to assume the Emperor’s Coven is on the same quest. The coven that was gonna be Amity’s entire future and she is gonna come face to face with it’s new head.
This is gonna be an interesting opportunity to see where Amity’s loyalties now lie.
While Hunter is tied up here, I can’t quite tell if she is the one to actually do it as it appears there is someone else here. Kikimora maybe. Whoever Amity is up against though Eda and King appear to be on side. This suggests to me Amity’s side is now clear and her loyalty to the Emperor’s Coven no longer exists. That her friends and chosen family are far more important to her.
I think we are definitely in for an interesting episode come Saturday.
