When Hepzibah, Empress and High Priestess of all witches and warlocks, comes to observe the first and only marriage of a witch and a mortal, her visit includes all the "trappings" of royalty, including transforming of the Stephens home into a replica of Buckingham Palace, complete with four servants, a trumpeter, and a pair of Russian wolfhounds. Constantly referring to Darrin as "the mortal," she generally makes life very hard for him and Samantha. Yet, the result of her study will either be her approval of the match or the dissolving of the marriage&something that she will achieve by simply dissolving Darrin! As Darrin struggles to make a good impression, Hepzibah and Samantha "pop" in at his office. However, when Samantha casts a spell to save a very important client from the High Priestess' wrath, it ends up making Mr. Hitchcock very attentive to Hepzibah, and makes Hepzibah more attracted to mortals than ever before. Hepzibah's decision to drum her out of the witches' world instead of dissolving Darrin in postponed when Samantha tells Mr. Hitchcock that the High Priestess will be in Salem the following weekend. So, when Hitchcock makes plans to be at the Witches Convention, too, Samantha wants Darrin to attend in order to give them more time to prove that a witch and a mortal can live happily ever after. © 1969, renewed 1997 CPT Holdings, Inc.
