The conflict at the center of the first episodes of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina—whether Sabrina, played by Kiernan Shipka, would choose the Path of Light or Path of Night—is settled. At least it appears to be from the two-minute blood-filled trailer for part two of the show that Netflix released on Monday. The trailer begins with Sabrina’s aunt Zelda remarking that “something is different about Sabrina,” which is certainly true, but also certainly an understatement: This time around, the teen can be found using her powers to, for example, snap necks.
Instead of hints at any potential Riverdale cameos—though Sabrina does, at one point, don a very Cheryl-like red leather jacket—the trailer offers scene after scene of gore. Let’s take a closer look to decode what’s ahead for Dark Sabrina.
Sabrina might just pull a Carrie.
The trailer ominously begins with Sabrina apparently gearing up to set Baxter High on fire, seeing as she’s accessorized her Mary Janes with a metal can full of what just might be kerosene or gas, and the next thing she does after pouring it out is light a match.
There will be blood.
“We’ve heard reports of levitation, slaughter of demons, resurrection of witches. How does a first-year, half-mortal student manage that?” Father Blackwood asks Sabrina, leaving out a few of her other misdeeds. (At one point, she can be seen snapping two boys’ necks.)
Blood, meanwhile, is everywhere, from a bath Sabrina takes to the high school floor to a human heart held up to Sabrina’s face to her cousin Ambrose’s injured chest. There’s also a bloody axe, carried by Sabrina’s classmate at the Academy of Unseen Arts, Nick Scratch, which brings us to the fact that…
There’s still time for smooching amid all the mess.
When he’s not carrying said bloody axe, Nick can be found kissing Sabrina—who, in turn, can also be found kissing Harvey Kinkle (played by Ross Lynch), aka her ex. Drama!
Thankfully, he’s not among those Sabrina can be seen kissing, though she does come face-to-face with him at the trailer’s end.
High school gets even scarier.
Baxter High’s school board has found a new principal: Sabrina’s teacher Ms. Wardwell, who, little do they know, is actually Madam Satan (and, apparently, a singer: According to the show’s creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the season will conclude with “an amazing musical number” involving Madam Satan, Sabrina, and more of the cast).
