Mayfair Witches said goodbye to one of its witches on Sunday.
The penultimate episode of the season was a nail-biter as Rowan (Alexandra Daddario) enacted a plan to save Tessa (Madison Wolfe) after being kidnapped by a group who were against witches.
Despite some hope that Tessa would escape her predicament, she died in the closing moments after being shot by Keith (Ian Hoch).
In an exclusive interview with TV Fanatic, Madison Wolfe revealed she was shocked while reading the episode.
“We were filming episodes five and six, and I didn’t get episode seven until right before we started shooting that episode,” Wolfe tells TV Fanatic.
“Honestly, my reaction was similar to so many of our audience members because, as you said, I’m reading it, and I’m like, ‘okay, she’s good. She made it.”‘
Despite being sad that Tessa had to die, Madison was excited because she had never died on-screen before.
“I knew I was gonna have fun filming it, so I was okay with it,” she said with a laugh.
Tessa’s final arc was heartbreaking because we witnessed her growing concerns about violence towards witches throughout the second half of the season.
Madison said that Tessa was driven by her passion for helping her family.
“The main thing is helping her family, standing up for the women in her family, especially her fellow witches, and protecting her family’s legacy.”
“I think she feels a real responsibility for that,” Wolfe adds.
Madison added that Tessa being chosen as the interim designee made her feel like keeping everyone safe was down to her, but the star recognizes
