Motherland: Fort Salem’s fourth episode ‘Hail Beltane’ starts off on the morning of Beltane.  The troops are still reeling from the tragic events from earlier that morning, but that doesn’t stop their more primal instincts from celebrating the feast of Beltane.  The threat of a Spree attack is looming, but General Alder believes that celebration must continue as Beltane is among the most sacred of the holidays. Tally, a virgin, is really looking forward to it.

The story so far:

Last week’s ‘A Biddy’s Life’ shows a more playful side to the witches’ competitive nature as they prepare to take part in the rituals of Beltane. The soldiers are encouraged to mingle and male troops are brought in for the celebration. The girls are told that “mingling” with the men can only help amplify their powers.  Tally, Raelle, and Abigail are all finally sharing enthusiasm about something, even though Raelle is bothered by Scylla’s mysteriousness. Tally meets a guy named Gerit and they immediately make a connection. Abigail and Libba try their best to show up each other by publicly insulting each other’s families. The eve of Beltane is brought to a close by more than one tragedy.

Reeling from the tragic events, Raelle is weakened by her efforts to try and save a life and is extra vulnerable to her emotions. She does not have much time to work through her feelings though. It’s been said that the unit can only succeed together and Tally needs Abigail and Raelle to give their all to Beltane so that she can lose her virginity. Despite the melancholy events from last week’s episode ‘A Biddy’s Life’, this episode is lighter and less intense, but it is definitely the sexiest. After a group dance where the witches lure in the object of their desire or desires, depending on their tastes, the day of dancing turns into an evening of very loud, public sex. Younger viewers may want to cover their eyes because there is some content parents may find objectionable.

Motherland: Fort Salem is a show about war, which can lead to some pretty intense storylines. ‘Hail Beltane’ balances the intensity with fun as the awareness of a threat is always present, but the festivities are used to strengthen them in the fights to come. Funny and full of spectacular magic effects, ‘Hail Beltane’ is a thoroughly enjoyable episode that goes a long way to adding dimensions to Raelle’s character.
