Hocus Pocus Season 2 Plot
In 1653, Reverend Traske sent Winifred Sanderson out of Salem because she refused to marry John Pritchett, which was against church rules.
Winifred doesn’t want to start losing her sisters Mary and Sarah, so she runs away along with them to a near the area forbidden forest.
Becca and Izzy go to Gilbert’s magic shop, where he gives Becca a candle again for ritual they do every year on her birthday.
When the girls brighten the candle, they discover that it’s another one that has a black flame. Because of the full moon and neither girl has ever been with a boy, the candle brings back the Sanderson sisters.
When the sisters close the gap to the girls, they see a campaign flyer for Mayor Jefry Traske, Cassie’s dad and a descendant of Reverend Traske.
Winifred decides that they will kill him with the Magicae Maxima spell and get back at Salem.
Izzy and Becca are locked in the basement, and the sisters leave to find Traske, whose blood has been needed to finish the spell. They make Gilbert get the other things they need.
The girls get away and visit the Traske house to tell the mayor, whereas the sisters go to the city’s Halloween funfair and use magic to get people to assist them in locating the mayor.
In the meantime, Gilbert digs up Billy Butcherson, who’s been awake since 1993 but buried since then. He requires Billy’s head again for spell, but first he tricks Billy into helping him get the other things he needs.
Before Mayor Traske gets home, the girls find Cassie and trap this same sisters in a salt circular pattern in Cassie’s garage.
The 3 teens make up, but their time together is cut short when the sisters sneak out of the circle and take Cassie for using her blood instead.
Becca as well as Izzy follow people to a forbidden forest, in which Gilbert has already gathered the ingredients. It doesn’t take long for Izzy and Becca to figure out that Becca is a practicing witch.
The sisters did some of the spell and got stronger, but Becca took their attention away so Izzy could save Cassie.
Becca convinces this same book that it doesn’t have to answer to Winifred, so she and the book run deeper into the forest.
The book shows them an alert about Magicae Maxima spell, which says that whoever casts this must give it up what they love most.
The girls concur to tell Winifred what the spell will cost, but they are too late. Winifred becomes all-powerful, and Mary and Sarah turn to dust.
Winifred starts to feel hopeless, so she asks the teens to use one‘s new powers to just save her sisters.
Even though Becca, Cassie, and Izzy can’t save them, they form a coven and cast a spell to bring them back together. Winifred happily fades to be with her sisters again.
The boys join Gilbert and the girls. When Billy realises that every one of Winifred’s spells have indeed been broken, he starts to fade away. He is happy to finally go to his eternal rest.
The girls decide to find a new home for Book and walk out into the night, just like the Sanderson sisters, to keep practising their magic.
As they end up leaving, a crow flies over them that looks just like the one Mother Witch turned into.
