  • The Witches' Council want to find out if Adam is a mortal or a warlock.

    6.0
    It's time for young Adam to be tested by The Witches' Council to see if he has magical powers or not. If he proves to be merely mortal, it is decreed that he will be taken away from his parents and sister. Maurice, unsure whether or not his beloved grandson is a warlock, imbues Adam with some powers so that he is able (Maurice hopes) to fool the council into believing that he is magical, even if it turns out that he isn't.



    Happily for everyone concerned, Adam is indeed deemed to have magical powers wich he is able to show without any magical assistance from his grandfather.



    The episode is somewhat repetitive as we have been there and done that several times throughout the seasons with different characters but it's a nice episode given that we are able to see that both Samantha and Darrin's children are magical like their mother.moreless

    • If Adam is a warlock, he doesn't display it in the quasi spin-off Tabitha series, featuring an adult Tabitha and Adam Stephens. However, in the animated cartoon special Tabitha and Adam and the Clown Family, he definitely shows that he inherited Samantha's powers, albeit grudgingly.

    • It is never fully disclosed if Adam is a true warlock or his powers are the result of grand-daddy Maurice's refusal to have a mortal grandson.

    • This episode completed filming on August 5, 1971. A rerun of this episode aired on July 1, 1972, the last time that Bewitched was ever broadcast on ABC in primetime.
