Nancy Drew Review – The Spellbound Juror (3×11)

Isn’t it such a relief that Nancy Drew is onto Temperance Hudson?

It was a bit concerning that Nancy couldn’t see through Temperance’s shady act, but it was only a matter of time before she caught figured it all out. Nothing gets past Nancy. 

It was a coincidence that Ryan Hudson just so happened to be auctioning off pieces from the Hudson estate, which included a briefcase belonging to Charity Hudson. In that briefcase was a letter to Beckett’s mother detailing the very plan to prevent her mother from unleashing holy hell on Earth to reunite the pieces of her soul. 

From there, it was simply a game of who could figure out who the Copperhead’s next victim was first. 

Admittedly, the Drew Crew did much of the heavy lifting with Nick figuring out that the victim was part of the trial he was serving jury duty for. 

In order to protect the Copperhead’s victim, Bess leaked the news that Carson Drew and DA Dawson were dating, which apparently is big news on Horsehoe Bae’s Twitter. Why is that name so genius?

The romantic news forced the judge to sequester the jury, but that was only a temporary fix.

The Drew Crew figured out that the victim was Lev just before he began displaying symptoms of the Copperhead’s trance. 

When he was dismissed, it was up to them to find him and protect him from the Copperhead’s wrath. 

Here’s the thing though — either the Copperhead gets to the victim and destroys their soul or Temperance does and gets what she wants. 

There’s no good solution here. 

Nancy and the crew thought they found it, but once again, Temperance outsmarted them. Why do they all keep forgetting she’s a powerful witch that has years of experience? Not to mention she’s been planning this for a very long time. She’s had time to think through every potential flub.

Lev was taken into police custody, but when dealing with the supernatural, that doesn’t mean much. Temperance was able to use her powers to knock them both unconscious. 

And she sent Nancy a note to celebrate her win — the of the hanged which stands for sacrifice. 

Nancy understood what it meant immediately, and thus, the battle for the soul of Horseshoe Bay (and Charity) wages on. 

After Temperance put the hex on the children at Nick’s youth center, you would think that would’ve been a focal point of the episode, but instead, he invested all his time to stop the Copperhead. 

It was nice to see Nick right in the center of the action without being tied to George or Nancy. He jumped into the case all on his own and proved that he has what it takes to handle things.

It’s only a matter of time before his friends find out about the whole ordeal with Temperance. 

Seeing Drew and DA Rosario square off was also a welcome change of pace. We know Carson is a lawyer, but we rarely see him at work. It’s nice to see his cases connect to the current events of the episode. 

And I’m really digging the idea of George becoming Carson’s assistance and pursuing a career in law. 

She’s always been bound by her home life and upbringing, but she has what it takes to carve a new path for herself. 

Not to mention that having her work with Carson directly connects him to the supernatural storyline. There’s plenty to explore here for the writers. 

George and Nick might be hurting from the break-up, but they are embarking on exciting new paths that may one day lead them back to each other as fully realized partners. 

Elsewhere, Bess took the role of Ace’s wing-woman to heart. Their friendship is so pure, and I’m convinced she’s one of the only people who fully understands the real Ace.

When she realized that he didn’t tell Nancy about his feelings, she kept pushing him to come clean and take a leap of faith. 

Ace explained that he didn’t think he was good enough for Ace, which was heartbreaking. He is so much more than a dishwasher, and Nancy has never cared about Ivy educations and any of the other stuff he was bringing up. 

Plus, it’s not like Nancy has it all together herself either. 

She didn’t go to college, she also works at the Claw as a waitress, and she’s working without pay as a neighborhood liaison. 

While there’s nothing wrong with any of those things, it’s not fair for Ace to put himself down in the way that he was. 

If anything, they are connected by their shared passion for solving crimes, keeping the town safe, and all things supernatural. 

Eventually, Bess convinced him that he needed to shoot his shot regardless of Nancy’s new relationship with Park. It’s not like Ace to be afraid of a little competition. 

And then he did it — he finally told her. 

I was like a school girl squealing on my couch when he just laid it all out there. “I have feelings for you.” Ace — a man that does not mince words. 

Nancy looked like her soul left her body for a second. I mean, she was frozen in place without any idea how to react. 

And who knows what would’ve happened if Ryan Hudson didn’t interrupt them. Seriously, dude, read the room. 

I was truly expecting Nancy to just leap into Ace’s arms, but understandably, that likely won’t happen for at least a few more episodes as she’ll likely be conflicted by his confession. 

She seems to really have a thing for Park, but I doubt he’ll be around for much longer. Once they crack the case of the Frozen Heart’s Killer aka the Copperhead, his time in Horseshoe Bay is over. 

I think Nancy just has to come to terms with the realization that Ace feels exactly the same way she feels. She’s also equally as scared to pursue something with him not only because it puts their friendship on the line but also because she doesn’t think she’s good enough for Ace. 

They both have to figure out if these feelings are worth acting on and risking a friendship over. 

But if George and Nick can remain cordial, I think love is always worth a shot. 

And, at the very least, it’s all out there in the open now. What a relief. 

What did you think of the episode? Are you happy Ace told Nancy the truth?

Were you surprised Temperance pulled a fast one on Nancy?
