Uses of Magic
To Conjure Rodin
(Cast by Zelda Spellman)
- We can't fix Hilda but someone else can,
- Send us an expert like Rodin.
- This is the second season finale to end on a cliffhanger; the first being "The End of an Era."
- This story is concluded in the seventh season premiere.
- This is the final appearance of Beth Broderick as Zelda, David Lascher as Josh, and Trevor Lissauer as Miles.
- This is the last episode in which Caroline Rhea (Hilda) appears as part of the main cast, however she returns as a "special guest star" in Soul Mates. Zelda will reappear in the following episode, being portrayed by a child, and in the series finale, in the form of a candle.
- David Lascher's character Josh Blackhart was originally meant to play a big part in the final season, however he wanted to move on from the show after this season. Due to this, the end of season six and the season seven story were changed to accommodate the introduction of Aaron Jacobs.
- Unusually, no family members other than Sabrina and Zelda are seen at Hilda's wedding (on-screen). Although this could be explained by how short notice Hilda's wedding was.
- This is the second and final appearance of Will.
- It is believed that if Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick had stayed, Season Seven would have involved Hilda and Zelda giving up their powers and attempting to lead completely mortal lives. Therefore still sticking to the plot of Sabrina taking care of herself and her own magic and also accommodating the upcoming budget cuts (less special effects). It is unknown if Hilda would have still gotten married.
- Harvey reveals that he's still in love with Sabrina.
- This episode marks the final appearance of the coffee house.
- This episode marks the final appearance of the labtop, fitting for Zelda's final episode.
- In their emotional goodbye, Sabrina and the aunts reference the times when they crossed swords with pirates, looked at time shares in hell, ski'd on mars, rode the rollercoaster on the rings of saturn, and when they rescued her from the volcano.
- This is the only time that we see Hilda's bedroom in the series.
- This is the second time Hilda has been engaged. She was previously engaged to Drell, but was stood up on the big day.
- When Rodan rebuilds Hilda, he leaves her appendix unattached. What we learn in Present Perfect means that Hilda is now a perfectionist.
- Hilda tells Will concerning her mood ring, "If you're lucky, it'll be green" as well as using it as evidence that he had betrayed her after kissing Zelda. However, violet is usually the mood ring color associated with passion and romance.
- In this episode it is revealed that if a witch is separated from her soul mate, she turns to stone and falls to pieces. However, we later learn that Sabrina and Harvey were soul mates all along, yet Sabrina hadn't fallen to pieces before this episode despite several break ups with Harvey. Perhaps, it didn't work because she didn't know about it.
- Perhaps this is because Sabrina and Harvey were meant to end up together and Hilda and Will were too, so being permanently separated turns a witch to stone - Sabrina was destined to end up with Harvey, so it didn't affect her.
