Margo and Eliot have decided to move full steam ahead with their plans to use the Fairy Queen’s eggs as bargaining chips, leaving them at Brakebills with a fellow student to watch over them. Upon the High King and High Queen’s return to Fillory, they hatch their extortion plan, manipulating the Fairy Queen into a deal that would unearth the fairies presence to all of Fillory. Unfortunately, their plan is foiled by none-other than Fray, who reveals where the eggs are. The Fairy Queen gives the High King and his wife an ultimatum: return the eggs or their daughter dies. Fray's overconfidence gets the best of her, forcing the Fair Queen to reveal how little she thinks of the human girl. Emotionally rejected, Fray reveals that she is not the daughter of Eliot and Fen. This upper hand had by Fillory’s royalty doesn’t last very long, however, when the Fairy Queen finishes out her deal just before she drops Margo and Eliot into a firey mob of Fillorians.

Meanwhile, Penny and Kady attempt a reunion (and a break out) after Quentin and Poppy reveal that a Library creature and a friend of Kady’s can help them—or rather Penny—get to the Underworld to retrieve the lost key. Once they get Kady out of the hospital using disguises and a fire alarm, she goes to Harriet for help. But Kady hasn’t repaid her last debt, and so to make the score even, she must meet a dangerous demand: robbing The Library. Meanwhile, Alice was saved upon the return of Eliot, Margo, Quentin, and Poppy, but now she must face the reality that she could lose magic again after Fogg reveals she has to give it back. Julia, on the other hand, must come to terms with her responsibility for it. As Alice goes to dire measures—including getting bit by a magical creature—to preserve her recently acquired powers, Julia digs deep within herself to find ways to protect Alice before she nearly kills them both.

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 7 Quotes

The Fairy Queen: In exchange for my babies, you want my bathtub?
Margo: You collect toes and eyeballs and you think that’s weird?
The Fairy Queen: Pardon me, but I’m a bit taken aback by this sudden curious act of extortion.
Eliot: Funny, we were taken aback by the floaters on spikes on the side of the road.
Margo: We thought you’d be alarmed by that, too, given you forced us into that alliance. So what’s it gonna be? Your bathtub? Or do we start making fairy and goat cheese omelettes.
The Fairy Queen: It’s a strange deal, even for me.
Margo: Right. I should be more specific. You’re giving your bathtub to the entire population of Fillory. We’re gonna make a fondue fountain out of it. It’ll be fun.
The Fairy Queen: And since I’ll have a deal with all Fillorians, everyone will then be able to see us.
Margo: I suppose you’re right.
Eliot: No more shadow puppeting. Just straight puppeting from now on.

Eliot: What if she doesn’t take the deal? Then what do we do? Or, what if she takes the deal and then it’s all out war?
Margo: Stop it. It’s going to be fine.
Eliot: We could cut our losses. We could head back to Earth and regroup. We could finish the quest, restore magic, and then maybe revisit this when we stand a fighting chance.
Margo: You and I both sacrificed a lot for Fillory. And now we’re just supposed to hand over the kingdom to the Albino supermodel? Bitch took my eye.
Eliot: Hey, I don’t wanna leave. But what if we’re making things worse?
Margo: There wasn’t a blood test to tell me to be High Queen. I chose it. And I have had to fight for every shred of authority. And no offense, but you can’t understand because it was handed to you.
