Ichabod and Abbie learn that a powerful Warlock who was responsible for the Salem witch trials had escaped from purgatory following the demise of Moloch, and is attempting to change the past with the Grand Grimoire. They learn from Katrina that the man was responsible for the death of a woman he believed loved him. She tells them that the witches coven had banded together and banished him to purgatory for his actions. With Katrina's help, they confront the man but he escapes after overpowering her. Katrina ponders the Warlocks comments about submitting to the dark side to become more powerful and decides to leave the Warlocks capture to Ichabod and Abbie. Ichabod and Abbie enlist Irving to help fight the Warlock and Ichabod suggests that they use elements against him, realizing that Katrina's elemental magic had an effect on him. They are able to track him down and electrocute him, Ichabod then attacks the man viciously before being pulled away by Abbie. Meanwhile, while Abbie and Ichabod look for him, Irving takes the Grimoire and snaps the neck of the Warlock who then vanishes. Irving then gives the Grimoire to Henry who responds with familiarity to him.
