TV Review: The Owl House Season 3 Episode 3 Watching and Dreaming

The finale episode of The Owl House, “Watching and Dreaming” aired this past Saturday, April 8th.

The finale episode of The Owl House, “Watching and Dreaming” aired this past Saturday, April 8th. It begins where “For the Future” left off with Luz, her friends, her mom (Camilla), Eda, Lilith, and King about to enter the archives. But Luz’s friends get magically pulled away from her and she wakes up in what appears to be some kind of nightmare. As we can see in the trailer, the Collector is playing games with Luz and her friends.

But I want to avoid spoilers so instead of the plot so, I’m going to focus on the general themes and feels. Yes, feels, a classic word in fangirl terminology. You know, like that feeling you get when you’re favorite tv show is ending? The trailer really leaned into the bittersweetness of this episode. It’s great that we got a conclusion to The Owl House, far too often tv shows (especially LGBTQ+ ones) get canceled before being concluded. But – although Disney’s cartoons typically only have three seasons, this season was only hour-long “special” episodes released about once every three months. That’s kind of crazy if you think about it. Disney canceled this wildly popular show because “it didn’t fit their brand” aka it was too gay:

But I digress, I think that Dana Terrace managed to conclude the plot. Considering how many plot threads were set up in the earlier seasons, that’s impressive. I ended up being really happy with it and thought that each character got their proper ending. Okay so that’s a slight spoiler, but did you honestly think that this children’s cartoon was going to have a sad ending? There was an ending for one particular character that I thought was particularly poetic. Also there was a quite long scene with smooth animation, and I loved much of the designs in Watching and Dreaming. I give it five out of five shooting stars. So what are waiting for? Go watch it. You can watch it on Disney+ or watch it right below from Disney’s YouTube channel. Byyyeeeeeeeee!
