Roland is back to his old tricks.

The Equalizer is the seventeenth episode of the second season and the fourty first overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


Roland the Troll returns, still determined to win Sabrina's heart. However, now he is the Equalizer, in charge of balancing things out in the universe. He begins to stalk an annoyed Sabrina, taking something from her when she takes something away from anyone else. Roland puts a spell on Harvey making him not go to the Valentine's Day dance, which annoys Sabrina. After Sabrina accidentally "steals the heart" of a guy named Ken who Valerie's interested in, Roland uses his authority to steal Sabrina's heart, making her fall madly in love with him. The now lovestruck Sabrina leaves to get married to Roland in the Other Realm, upon which her heart will be sealed and she'll be transformed into his true love permanently. She begins to make him "ecstatically happy" and she also says "I love it here, I love this moldy home, I love Roland". When Roland was told to return her heart Sabrina said "No I don't want it back, I want my Rolly to keep it forever and ever."

Desperate for Valentine's Day dates, Zelda and Hilda summon Cupid, only to discover that he is depressed and has lost his belief in love, until Hilda makes him laugh and is aghast to discover that he is now Mr. Kraft's rival for her reluctant affections.
