Apocalypse Then Recap

Wilhelmina sits at her desk, and Myrtle comes in and says that she's there to meet the founders, Mutt and Jeff. The receptionist refuses, saying that Myrtle has no business there. Myrtle sarcastically agrees and tells Wilhelmina to take her to her employers. She wonders how Myrtle got past security, and Myrtle demonstrated by casting a similar immobilization spell on Wilhelmina and wiping her memory.

Mutt and Jeff are determining which Outpost they'll stay in. Michael wants the Miriam android in Outpost 3 with her SSD wiped so she doesn't remember that he's the Antichrist. Myrtle comes in and looks at the maps of the Outposts. Mutt grabs a weapon and Myrtle forces him to drop it and has him say that Outpost 3 is at the former Hawthorne School. She tells the founders that they'll accept an offer from Mr. St. Pierre Vanderbilt to buy four tickets and put him in Outpost 3. She casts a spell to kill them and leaves before they die.

After Myrtle tells the other witches about the coming apocalypse, she informs Coco that her father will be purchasing tickets to get into Outpost 3. Coco will take Mallory there, and they can't cast tempus infinitum until Mallory is ready. To keep Michael from sensing Mallory, Cordelia and Myrtle will place Coco and Mallory under an identity spell to make them forget that their witches. Coco will demean Mallory to make her doubt herself and suppress her natural powers. The senior witches have modeled Coco's new personality after Madison. Coco's family won't join her at Outpost 3 to make sure that her family doesn't expose Coco for who she really is. Coco says that her parents and brother deserve to live more than she does, and Cordelia tells Mallory that her powers will emerge when they're ready. The witches gather and Coco says that Mallory is her best friend and is sorry for what she says once they lose their memories. They hug, and Cordelia casts the identity spell.

Later, Madison poses as Coco's Uber driver and takes her to Gallant's studio. As the two women get out, Mallory sees a bus advertisement for Dinah. In the salon, Gallant greets Coco and says that her afternoon is spoken for. Coco pays him double and Gallant says that he can't work while Mallory is there. Irritated, Coco tells Mallory to get her her macchiato. Brock is at the next chair and says that Gallant can't improve on perfection.

Madison goes to the cabin and tells them that Dinah is a talk show hostess and figures that she sold her soul to the Devil. Myrtle says that they have to clear the rot, but Cordelia tells them that they can't alert Dinah to their plans. She figures that their identity spell is more powerful than anything Dinah can penetrate, and she want Dinah safe and sound until they're ready to make her pay.

Miriam reveals her gun hand, and Cordelia blows her up with a spell, blasting Michael to the floor. Michael stares at Miriam's severed head, and Madison picks up Miriam's gun and shoots Michael with it. Myrtle goes to Michael and admires his hair, pulls off a piece, and gives it to Mallory to locate a time and place early in Michael's life. Cordelia says that they have to find a place to cast the spell before Michael recovers and finds them, and Madison tells her that she'll hold him as long as she can. As Mallory runs, Brock stabs her in the stomach and says that he should have been on the plane. Myrtle incinerates Brock with a spell.

Cordelia tries to breathe life into the dying Mallory. Marie tells Cordelia and Myrtle to get Mallory out of there while she holds off Michael. She casts a barrier spell, but Michael plunges his hand into her stomach. Coco stabs Michael in the back, and he turns and finishes yanking Marie's heart out of her chest. He eats it and snaps Coco's neck, then pulls the knife out and goes to find the remaining witches.

Mallory apologizes to Cordelia, who realizes that Mallory isn't strong enough. Myrtle tells Cordelia that they're fucked, and Cordelia says that she loves her. She walks out and confronts Michael, who says that he was always going to win. Cordelia tells him that he's been led by the hand the entire way by his father and by the warlocks. She dismisses Michael as a pathetic little boy who couldn't kill her, and Michael says that he let her survive so he could kill her himself. Cordelia tells him that she'll get to watch him die but she won't find it satisfying. She summons Michael's knife to her hand, says that her sisters are legion, and stabs herself in the heart.
