Mayfair Witches Season 1 Episode 5 Recap – Who Dies in “the Thrall”?
Who dies in “The Thrall”? Mayfair Witches Season 1 Episode 5 Recap initially featured on Ready Steady Cut.
Spoilers are included in this summary of Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches Season 1 Episode 5, “The Thrall.”
The Thrall is the first episode of Mayfair Witches that I would describe as being genuinely interesting, at least in the way it plays with the concepts of Laschers influence and Mayfair magic, especially that associated with the family house. You can say a lot about Mayfair Witches, and I have over the past few weeks. We spend a significant amount of time there in the most recent episode, though in a purposefully nebulous way that for once adds something to the hour rather than making it tedious. As you may remember, Episode 4 ended there after Carlotta attempted to kill Rowan and unintentionally skewered Ciprien.
Mayfair Witches Season 1 Episode 5 Recap
What is S Going on In the Past?
In a moment, we’ll arrive. But first, the opening flashback, which I don’t mind talking about this week because it seems to be congealing into a pertinent context. As anticipated, it appears to be describing how the notion of state-sanctioned misogyny disguising itself as witchcraft spreads throughout a community. Assisting a mother in delivery whose husband is horrified to discover his infant boy has webbed fingers is Suzanne and her sister. The new parent attributes this to Suzanne and her tonics. It isn’t difficult to see where this is all leading when the king’s witchfinder shows up later with a warning about rooting out witchcraft in their towns. But just to be sure, the angry man’s glare lingers on Suzanne long enough to make everything crystal apparent.

How Does Lasher Try to Control Rowan?
Anyway, as previously stated, Lasher, who is attempting to keep Rowan at Mayfair House, conjures up a dream state in which the current episode’s mayhem takes place at first. This time it shows up as Rowan and Ciprien in bed having a romantic breakfast routine that lasts for what feels like days. Both don’t remember how they got there. Neither can recall how Ciprien sustained the stabbing wound in his side, which is becoming worse.
He starts to exhibit the early symptoms of sepsis, and Rowan swiftly concludes that he is, in any case, dying. However, since all of the doors and windows are locked, there is no way to leave the house. Although Rowan arranges a deal in exchange for Ciprien’s freedom, Lasher prefers that Ciprien die in the house and leave Rowan behind, so she does so in spite of Ciprien’s objections. Ciprien is whisked to his residence by magic, leaving Rowan and Lasher behind.
Who Dies in Mayfair Witches Episode 5?
The time Lasher spends with Rowan is split equally between an effort at seduction and a demonstration of the range of her power. He appears to also want her to want him, to dance with him, and to eat cake with him, which Rowan initially rejects. He wants her to understand that via her ability, she may manifest whatever she wants. but just at first. The issue with power is that it’s alluring, especially for someone like Rowan who finds herself suddenly in need of many things to defend or exact revenge on. Lasher is manipulating her by enabling her to act in this way. She asked him to save Ciprien, and he did. He is enabling her to exact revenge for how Carlotta handled Deidre and the entire murder attempt last week by introducing her to Carlotta. How can a girl refuse? Following Rowan’s use of her powers on her, Carlotta ends up falling to her death from the balcony.
Does Ciprien Survive?
After Lasher returns Ciprien to his apartment, he is able to call on the Talamasca for assistance, which allows him to stay alive. The strange magical rituals they do around him succeed in healing him, but they also reveal to his sister that he isn’t actually in the FBI or CIA, so she is compelled to hide because she is there. This will likely put Ciprien’s job in jeopardy in the road, but for now, he’s more interested in going back to the Mayfair mansion to try to save Rowan again since it’s worked so well for him the prior times.
Rowan has, of course, already escaped the house on her own. But the much more challenging challenge turns out to be releasing oneself from Lasher.
