Emerald City S01E03 Recap: Mistress -- New Mistress

Dorothy sleeps on Toto, until a shot wakes her up. She wakes, searching for Lucas, and finds him shirtless on the beach. She doesn't think he should have her gun. He doesn't think anyone should. When someone is killed with a gun, they have to work on it. Killing with a gun is too easy. He's just one man with a sword, but even many aren't as terrifying as her with the gun. He gives her back the gun, and they head back towards the road. The Circus heads off, and they notice an uproar. It's over the death of the Witch of the East, she was murdered, and the weather mourns. Wizard guards block the road.

Tipp is still worried over waking up a girl. Jack thinks that they should continue on, to find more medicine, and turn her back into himself.

Lucas worries over what he should do. Dorothy doesn't want him to butcher anyone. Lucas sees the guard heading right for them. Dorothy holds tight, and tells Toto to stay put, but he doesn't. She exits the car to find him, and Lucas grabs her, hiding her away in the bushes as the Wizard guard makes it to the car. They want to find Dorothy and kill her.

The Wizards wants to know how the trio were able to get so high up. Anna tells him that some believe that they flew. He heads for a closer look. She tells him that they're doing a ritual for suicide. The trio of witches float up and then off the edge, and their necks snap before they hit the ground, their bodies levitating even in death.

Dorothy wonder why the Wizard wants to kill her. Lucas wonders if she's more dangerous than he is. Dorothy knows where they should head, to the witch's castle. She knows the Wizard isn't the answer. She came on a tornado, she hopes she can leave on one.

The Wizard is a little traumatized over the latest events. Elizabeth goes over the beast's history, and they don't have much time before the beast kills them all soon. In private Anna contradicts the other. She has other ideas, easier ones that will explain where the suicidal witches came from, and what he beast is really up to.

The Witch of the West has a visitor.

Dorothy tells Lucas about her life back home, and how she found out that her parent's weren't really her parents. A guard thinks that Dorothy and Lucas has come to loot and steal, but they haven't. When Dorothy puts up her hands to defend herself, the Witch of the East's gauntlets appear on Dorothy's hands. He asks if she is his new mistress, and Dorothy takes up the claim. As she lowers her hands the gauntlet's disappear.

Tipp and Jack finally arrive at their destination. They head into town and straight into an inn for grub, but she doesn't like it. Things are too different. She just wants to get the medicine and get back to normal. Jack heads off to get her the medicine. A barmaid suggests that unless Tipp wants to make money off her boobs, that she should cover up. Tipp heads to the restroom, and after a little dilemma on which bathroom to use, gets a good look in the mirror. She doesn't like what she sees.

Sullivan shows Dorothy and Lucas around her new home. Sullivan asks about his former Mistress, if she passed peacefully. Dorothy tells him she wasn't there, but she believes she did. Dorothy asks to be taken to the cyclone. Sullivan is glad to hear that she's come to settle the elements before it ripped apart the castle. He takes Dorothy to cleanse herself in preparation, and directs Lucas to the servant's quarters. But first, he disarms Lucas, and Dorothy urges him to do what he's being asked. Lucas gives up his sword, and tries to talk some sense into Dorothy.

The Witch of the West gets a dressing down over the suicidal girls practicing magic that the Wizard has banned. She's not up for his threats, and she notices the Wizard's new companion. She's familiar with her, she knew the girl's mother intimately, as did the Wizard.

Dorothy purifies herself, and comes out looking every inch the mistress of the East. She's ready to settle the weather, or put her plan into motion. Dorothy comes face to face with the cyclone, the lake and whatever is swimming below the surface. Sullivan doesn't understand why she doesn't use the elements to get to the platform. Dorothy taps into the power at hand, and walks across the water, unleashing her power, and calming the cyclone. She disappears with it.

The Wizard goes out after Anna. He tells her he was born Frank Morgan, not the Wizard. Anna knows he harnesses lightning and Giants. The Wizard tells her the truth. He was a nobody, he worked hard to became the wizard because he denied it. The past doesn't define a person, nor their parents. He tells Anna that what matters is who she wishes to be, and how hard she's willing to work for it. Anna asks what her mother looked like, and the Wizard admits he doesn't remember. Anna is glad.

Tipp and Jack head to an apothecary for more medicine. Tipp doesn't know what was in the bottle, only that her guardian made it. The apothecary isn't sure he can replicate it, but he's willing to try.

Dorothy doesn't find herself where she's expecting. In the middle of an icy river, there is garbage strewn about. She pulls a shirt with K Chapman embroidered on it.

Anna interview's West's girls. Everyone does a little poppy, but the dead girls like old men, and helped them rise to the occasion. The Wizard chats with West. She's innocent of the crime that he's investigating. She's a cardinal witch, one of the last of her kind, and she's glad that he banned magic. She has all this power, and yet she was helpless to save others. To keep the beast away.

The Apothecary has bad news for Tipp. The medicine she asked for is banned, its actually magic. Her turning into a girl, is actually because the magic portion wore off. This is what she really is.

Anna gives the Wizard her findings. The magic did not come from West. She believes it came from the beast. The Beast will rise, and she thinks that it is coming for the Wizard. Furthermore, she knows that the Wizard doesn't have control of the Giants, that maybe he never did. She thinks that its in The Prison of the Abject, which is why he allowed to be reopened. She promises to keep his secrets, from even Glinda, but the Wizard has other ideas. She ends up in prison.

Dorothy returns and the cyclone comes back with her, and worse than ever. Dorothy cannot calm the store. Sullivan tells her that she was not suppose to bring back any revenant articles. She went to the wrong place. The item belonged to her mother. Sullivan realizes that she isn't who she claimed to be. Sullivan draws his sword, and takes Lucas hostage for some answers. She's not the new mistress, and she's sorry. Dorothy tells him that she lied, and East killed herself. Sullivan lets them make their escape as the cyclone begins ripping apart the palace. Dorothy admits that Lucas was right, she more dangerous than he is. Her mother was in Oz. Lucas thinks they should seek out the Wizard, but he wants Dorothy dead. Lucas asks what its worth. Dorothy heads to the yellow road, to seek out the Wizard.

Elizabeth advises him to animate the stone giants before they all burn. The wizard watches the snow fall. Anna does the same from her cell. The wizard may have just realized Anna knows more than he thought.

The wizard guard looks at new signs.

Tipp doesn't respond to Jack. Tipp can't believe the truth that she's just learned. Everything she knew, was wrong. Jack doesn't want to believe it. Tipp thought if he could get clear, he could find a life, but she knows different now. She was stolen, and yet she's still here. Jack shows her the Emeralds that he stole so they can stay together. Jack kisses her, and she loses it. Of all people, that was a huge betrayal. He doesn't know why he kissed her he says, but Tipp isn't listening, and when she pushes Jack, he falls below to his death.
