Phillipa is a fearsome master of polymorphy—the power to change into an animal. In her case, she changes into an owl, a form which has many uses in terms of spying. With at least three centuries of experience under her belt, she is not an enemy you’d like to make.

What do you think of Clare as Philippa? Are you excited to see the sorceress come to like in season two? Let us know in the comments below or in our forum!
