The episode begins with Mathew coming to the Oxford library, searching for Diana, no doubt. He doesn’t find her and instead sees many supernaturals there, also waiting. He goes to meet Diana outside her apartment and offers that rather going to the library, he takes her elsewhere for the day. Gillian walks up, desperately wanting to explain about Knox. She gets snarky about Knox and tells her that she shouldn’t be with ‘that’, pointing at Mathew. So, obviously, she’s been brainwashed. That’s enough to push her to go with Mathew.
Diana and Mathew go to Mathew’s home. The place is spacious and a remnant of different time periods. Mathew explains that he doesn’t stay in one place for very long, which is a given because people would notice how he doesn’t age and he doesn’t want to give away that he’s a vampire. During Diana’s exploration of the house, she gets to know Mathew. He’s French and he lost his father a long time ago which stuns Diana.
Meanwhile, Satu comes to the congregation in Venice. In this building, all three supernaturals have their division of archives. It’s here that they work together to remain a secret from humans. She’s officially playing with the big dogs now.
Diana is browsing through some of Mathew’s books. He asks her if she used a spell to call the book, but she tells him no. She’s never been good at spell casting.
Diana’s aunt Emily is seen casting a spell. Before she gets too far the housecat meows, coming outside onto the porch. Turns out she was only trying to check on Diana and discovers that she’s with Mathew and it makes both of the aunts nervous.
On the grounds, Diana and Mathew still talk about her magic. She’s perfectly okay not practicing, but he thinks otherwise. All of this interaction between them is getting us all excited! It’s obvious how much they like each other and the way they take the time to get to know one another is incredibly swoon-worthy.
In a little convenient shop, we’re taken out of that bubble and suddenly shaken as a pregnant woman named Sophie is sketching the alchemical symbol that Diana saw in the Ashmole book. After her shift, she comes home to her husband, Nathaniel, who’s created a chatroom for Daemons to have a place to connect. She shows him a picture in a book of a queen which resembles a figurine that’s been in her family for generations, and we’re curious as to what it means.

Diana receives a call from her frantic aunts about Mathew and she’s exhausted with them. She doesn’t feel like she’s in any danger with him. Her aunts remind her of the stories she used to be told about vampires but still she’s not worried.
The next morning, Marcus is waiting for Diana outside her apartment and he’s as perky as ever and makes a deal with her. She wants to know what Mathew likes, and Marcus will help, but only if she helps in the lab.
Back in the congregation archives for witches, Satu is doing some research. Most of it is blacked out. It’s discovered that what’s she’s looking at is the file on Diana’s dead parents. She performs a spell to reveal the blackout and Domenico whisks in to snatch it out from under her fingertips.
At the lab, Diana has conceded to Marcus’s deal and is giving blood for them to research. Mathew intervenes quickly and is the one to take her blood. We can’t help but smirk at totally catching his greediness to tend to anything dealing with Diana.
At the congregation, Domenico and Gerbert discuss Diana Bishop. Domenico wants Mathew brought in and questioned in regard to Diana.
Meanwhile, Nathaniel and his wife are visited by his mother, Agatha. She notices that they’re studying alchemy (just like Diana). Nathaniel’s chatroom to connect Daemons is being shut down and he wonders if it was her. She denies and before an argument can break out Matt’s wife breaks in with a little figurine, saying she’ll need to give this to someone who’ll truly need it. While it seems strange, it’s obvious she has a deep feeling that it’s important, but for reasons unknown still.
Now, we still don’t know very much about Daemons yet, but this is a start! It’s fantastic to finally see a glimpse of them on the show.
Miriam confronts Mathew about Diana. He’s becoming attached to her but, hey, we’re not complaining! However, it seems everyone is up in a hissy about crossing-dating. Understandable since it’s forbidden by the sacred covenant. We love the entire forbidden love so we are behind team Mathew and Diana.
As she’s getting ready for dinner with Mathew, there’s a knock at the door. It’s Knox. Luckily, Mathew shows up before things get too tense. And he’s brought much-needed wine.
As dinner progresses, Diana asks him, after he so delicately describes the smell and taste of the wine, what she would taste like. The question makes him freeze. He already wants to know the answer to that as well, but he doesn’t want to harm her in like that. The tension between them grows more and more as they are so close we can hardly breathe.
It’s at this moment when we’re already screaming for them to kiss that they do. It’s brief and he doesn’t seem to reciprocate it. He leaves her there after thanking her for dinner.
Juliette has been released from her imprisonment with a mission to go find Mathew. We can only imagine it’ll be uncomfortable, awkward, and dangerous.
The next morning, Diana is still playing the dinner out in her head. At her door, an envelope is dropped off and inside are photos of her dead parents. She shows them to Gillian, disgusted saying that Knox sent them to her. She’s determined to deal with him herself. At this point, there’s no hope for Gillian to get Diana’s friendship back.
Mathew comes looking for her at her apartment. The door is cracked. He looks around inside, wondering if somebody might’ve broken in and notices the photos on the coffee table.
At the library, Diana finally asks for the Ashmole 782. As she waits for it, Knox shows up along with a handful of other witches, including Gillian. Creepy. Shaun, the librarian isn’t liking the look of this and tells them to leave, but Knox casts on him, knocking him unconscious. Bad move.
Diana reacts with a strong spell that whips through the library, knocking Knox back. It becomes too powerfu–even for her. Mathew having sensed her using magic, comes to her aid, calming her down and ending the spell.
Marcus comes by later to check on them and sees Mathew tending to her as she rests and packing a small suitcase. Mathew wants to seek vengeance for the attack on her and the photos sent to her, but Marcus gets him to rethink it. Is it worth endangering their family? Mathew decides to take her to his mother’s estate and admits that he’s never felt so protective of anyone.
In the last few minutes of the episode, Diana awakes in the early hours of the morning. He tells her about how witch wind hasn’t been summoned in centuries and that she must leave Oxford for her protection. Then, what we’ve been hoping for since Mathew left her after their dinner, he kisses her, and we are under the spell of #Bishmont.
