Following the conclusion of the first season, Eda’s sister Lilith (Cissy Jones) had left the Emperor’s Coven, lost her magic and taken on half of Eda’s curse as penance for putting it on her in the first place. She was at her lowest point and wanted to make it up to Eda further by gathering the ingredients to concoct a potion that would allow Eda to spy on the Emperor. And, much like other residents of the Owl House, she found Hooty to be an annoyance. That is until he came to her rescue in acquiring honey from fire bees. From that moment on, they became fast friends: joking with each other, hanging out together, and even becoming pen pals when Lilith left the Owl House to reunite with her family. If that’s not friendship goals, what is?
In “Keeping Up A-fear-ances”, we finally got to meet Eda’s mother (Deb Doetzer), who has been working on finding a cure for Eda’s curse without much success. However, that wasn’t the big part of this episode. No, it came in the last few seconds, where we got a glimpse into Luz’s home in the human realm and found that her mother, Camila (Elizabeth Grullon), hasn’t been missing her since she’s been trapped in the Demon Realm—because she’s already there?! That’s right, someone who resembled Luz (dubbed “Creepy Luz” by the fandom) was in her house, and Camila was none the wiser. We had gotten hints of the double in the previous season when it was shown that Camila had been getting physical letters from Luz (the real one had been texting her through the portal until she had to destroy it), but this was the first time we saw her in the flesh and ominous shadows.
