The Expanse’s fifth season is inching closer to its finale, and this week the show narrowed its focus, spending most of its time on one especially heartbreaking storyline.

The Expanse's Steven Strait on Holden's Evolution as a Leader

Roald Dahl’s The Witches was terrifying as both a novel and as a high-camp ‘90s horror-comedy. It presented, quite frankly, a world full of child-hating witches whose sole purpose in life was to exterminate young people.
