Where’s Sabrina’s Twin On The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina certainly became addictive to watch despite it’s dark and odd deviations from the original sitcom. The original, Sabrina the teenage witch show featuring Melissa Joan Hart show showcased a young teenage witch just having whimsical and light-hearted adventures. But just as how CW’s Riverdale took a dark turn on Archie’s comics, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina did the same. Though, by introducing witches and warlocks they adopted more of an American Horror Story vibe. The reaction of the cast of the original to the reboot is quite a hilarious one! Despite a lot of obvious differences between the original and the reboot, in terms of visuals and story plot-line, the one thing they both share might be the existence of Sabrina’s twin. It’s something that we got to see in the sitcom. And what The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina hinted at it in a very spooky fashion.
Hint of Sabrina’s twin on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
One terrifying scene which you definitely would remember from the reboot is that in the very first episode. Sabrina is in the bathtub washing off a curse the three sisters of the witch world cast on her. During her bath, she’s suddenly transported into the middle of the woods. To figure out what just happened, the young witch goes further into the woods. Following the sounds of weeping babies, Sabrina comes across a blanket. After lifting it up, she sees this truly horrifying picture:
The pictures shows the feet of two babies; one healthy and cooing, the other unhealthy and crying. This was definitely hinting at twins but it wasn’t clear whose twins the show was poking at. The entire first season didn’t mention anything in regards to any possible sibling Sabrina might have except for one scene in the 9th episode.
In “Chapter Nine: The Returned Man,” Sabrina travels to a mortal limbo to rescue Tommy Kinkle. During her time there, she sees her mother who utters these words:
“They took my baby after the baptism.”
If Sabrina is still here then she must be obviously be talking about Sabrina’s twin. One should also acknowledge that the family of Sabrina Spellman in this reboot is one with a myriad of dark secrets. Sabrina’s father sold his daughter to the dark Lord in exchange for marrying her mother. And the mother got her secretly baptized in a Christian Church. Yeah, and we though we had family issues…
But all this begs the question: Was there a twin on the original Sabrina The Teenage Witch?
Yes! Remember the Evil Twin on Sabrina the Teenage Witch
In fact, the revelation of Sabrina having an evil twin was a major plot point for the first season. In order for Sabrina to obtain her witching license she has to figure out a family secret. It’s similar to how the modern Sabrina has to solve that puzzle her father made to be able to learn more magic in the Academy of the Unseen Arts.
The original Sabrina finds out the dark secret that there’s always a twin in the Spellman family and unfortunately one is always good and the other always evil. Now, remember the chilling scene in the reboot when the modern Sabrina follows the weeping babies?
It All Clicks Together!
So folks, we’re probably going to find out about Sabrina’s twin in the next season. However, there’s no official news that any of the show creators or cast has given us as of yet. But it would undoubtedly be interesting to see how they introduce the twin and what traits they give her. Maybe, the show creators will add another twist and keep the modern Sabrina the evil one?
However, the modest and humble nature of Sabrina in Kiernan Shipka makes it really hard to imagine her as being evil. She’s the protagonist that we can all root for as we know our hero is going to do whatever it takes to bring down the Dark Lord himself. The determined Kiernan doesn’t portray a naive witch either. Her character knows full well how everyone gives their blind faith and unflinching loyalty to the Dark Lord. So, it’s going to be incredibly hard for her to take the big boss of evil but she’s more than determined for it. And with the twin being introduced, it’s not too crazy to assume that Sabrina’s twin will be a major hurdle as well. Who knows? Maybe the two sisters will end up fighting the Dark Lord together!
Let’s see what happens next in season 2! We’ll keep you updated on any news we find on the mysterious twin.
