Episode 8 recap
Episode 8 explained to viewers how Elias had duplicated himself in order to attend the trip to Scotland alongside Chise while also not allowing her to rely on his presence. The two then encountered an each-uisge, which is a water horse that drowns and eats humans. Elias warned Chise of this as the two departed and headed back to camp, where night fell.
The next morning, Chise and Lucy spoke about why the former wanted to be friends with Philomela. The two then went about their day performing various activities, as a creature with one eye was shown rising out of the nearby ocean that night. The same night, Lucy went to go to the bathroom but had her magic drained by something.
Chise woke up and went to look for her upon realizing she was missing, eventually finding her and a giant beast known as a nuckelavee. After meeting up with Rian Scrimgeour and securing Lucy’s safety, Chise was able to use the each-uisge to trick the nuckelavee into being submerged in freshwater, its weakness. After successfully escaping the each-uisge as well, the two reunited with their peers as the episode ended.
What to expect (speculative)
The Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 episode 9 is expected to begin with a focus on Lucy’s recovery, providing an explanation for how her magic power was drained. With Elias claiming that the nuckelavee was likely not responsible for it, it’s unclear how it occurred. However, it probably has to do with the book that was shown having its pages flipped through as Lucy walked through the forest at night.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 episode 9 will also likely explain what happened to Chise after she was grabbed underwater by the nuckelavee before it died. With her dragon’s curse arm seemingly transforming after being influenced by an unknown voice, it could be a sign that Chise’s condition is worsening.
