The expectation for the 4th season of The Dark World of Sabrina (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) it was quite high! After all, the central character of the series has been a favorite of the public since the 90s and the Netflix revival brought different aspects to the Greendale family.

However, unfortunately, it seems that part 4 left something to be desired in many ways and constructed a narrative, at least, confusing. Check out our full review below!


Review of part 4 of Sabrina’s Dark World

The season’s narrative starts off interesting. Sabrina split into two personalities: Sabrina Spellman, who remains in the mortal world, and Sabrina Morningstar (or Morning Star), the Queen of Hell. The meeting between the two seems promising when, early on, their mortal version needs to go to Hell to ask for help from their daughter version of Lucifer. But, in fact, the conversations between the two Sabrinas are just a reflection of the confused content of the rest of the season.

In this final part of the series, Greendale must deal with the Eight Entities that bring different plagues and dangers to the planet. They are presented with each new episode, forming a complete arc until reaching the most dangerous of all. Amid all this, Ambrose goes from being one of the most interesting characters in the series to becoming a mere narrator. Now, he just seems to serve as a kind of teacher who explains about the dangers, but never taking part in the action.

In fact, the same aspect of disinterest seems to take over Sabrina too. Its mortal version seems to have regressed in all the learning of the last seasons. After all, she makes beginner’s mistakes that spoil the character’s growth arc.

Likewise, one of the aspects most anticipated by the fans was the return of Sabrina’s aunts and the original Salem from the 90’s series. Unfortunately, seeing the talking cat was not as exciting as we expected. In a way, it’s as if the producers were more concerned with “playing” references from the original version of The Dark World of Sabrina than to cohesively fit them into the episodes.

Finally, we have the end of the series, which was the opposite of what was expected. But there is no denying that it, perhaps, was the most interesting fact of the season. After all, Sabrina has always been willing to risk her own life to save her family and friends. Therefore, the outcome could not be different. To save Greendale, she must open the famous Pandora’s box in a cosmic space known as The Void.

Although she knows that she will not be able to return from there, Sabrina decides that her sacrifice is necessary to save everyone. Soon, she teleports and manages to suck The Void into the box, preventing it from dominating Greendale.

While fans would prefer Sabrina to remain alive after all the battles against the Entities, her death was an unusual but real way to end the Netflix series.

In addition, the loss of the main character refers to one of the main lessons of the series: we cannot escape our destiny. Then, the little witch would not be able to live her normal life as desired, since that would mean the sacrifice of the city she loved so much.

In general, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina it was still one of the best series on the streaming platform, even though its final part may have disappointed a little.
