A Love Pentagram and a New Brother! 6 Teases for Witches of East End Season 2

Darkness is rising on Witches of East End.

When viewers last saw the Beauchamp women, they had defeated Penelope (Virginia Madsen), but the fight had only just begun. First, Joanna was left fatally poisoned, and her death also triggered the power within her sons, Dash (Eric Winter) and Killian (Daniel Di Tomasso), which surfaced during their death match over Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum). At the same time, Ingrid (Rachel Boston) was forced to open the portal to Asgard — the magical realm they originally came from --  leaving the door wide open for any enemy whom Joanna (Julia Ormond) and Wendy (Madchen Amick) left behind to seek revenge.
