Kenzi asked her Aunt Ludmila to help invoke Baba Yaga. Witchcraft by humans was not presented, although Kenzi and Bo (both drunk) talked about casting several spells on Dyson to punish him for being, in Kenzi's words, "a dink".
The human witches performed several magical spells, among them was the manipulation of weather and pyrokinetic abilities to create a "five-pointed star" of fire on the ground. They were capable of reading Bo's powerful aura, and with possession of a magical talisman necklace, they invoked and controlled a Fae spirit called a Duppy.
- Witchcraft (also called witchery or spellcraft) is the use of magical faculties, most commonly for religious, divinatory or medicinal purposes. This may take many forms depending on cultural context. The belief in and the practice of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today. The concept of witchcraft as harmful is often treated as a cultural ideology providing a scapegoat for human misfortune. This was particularly the case in the early modern period of Europe where witchcraft came to be seen as part of a vast diabolical conspiracy of individuals in league with the Devil undermining Christianity, eventually leading to large-scale witch-hunts, especially in Protestant Europe. Witch hunts continue to this day with tragic consequences. Since the mid-20th century Witchcraft has become the designation of a branch of modern paganism. It is most notably practiced in the Wiccan and witchcraft traditions, some of whom claim to practice a revival of pre-Abrahamic spirituality.
- In Macbeth, Act 4, scene 1, 44–49, by Shakespeare, the second witch proclaims as Macbeth approaches, "By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes." Episode 2.01 is titled Something Wicked This Fae Comes.
