This week’s f*ck boy is a magical one indeed. He’s a member of the Church of Night and attends The Academy of Unseen Arts with other gorgeous warlocks and witches. Oh, yes. We will be talking about the infamous, powerful and pleasurable Nicholas Scratch.
Let’s get you acquainted if you don’t know who this fine, gentleman is. Nicholas Scratch is a warlock on the Netflix original The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. This new version of Sabrina’s world is heavily steeped in darkness, Satanism and delicious depravity so it only makes sense that the men of this show are devilishly stunning.
Nick was only a reoccurring character for the first and second parts of the show but becomes Sabrina’s friend while she was still with Harvey and a love interest after their relationship ended.
Now, to say that he’s popular among the witches and warlocks of his academy is an understatement. There isn’t moment when we see him school, that there isn’t someone practically drooling after him when they should be focused on their studies or protecting the school from…any threat really.
There isn’t much we know about Nick before his life at the academy besides knowing he no longer has any family and his jealous familiar but he seems to enjoy orgies, participating in one with Prudence Blackwood, an antagonist of the show and other magical students.
He was also in polyamorous relationship with Prudence and her weird sisters, Agatha and Dorcas. He ended the relationship in fear of the mind control magic the sisters use, not knowing if what they all had was real or not. He also offered to “share” Sabrina while he was trying to woo her even though she was in a relationship to her long time, mortal boo, Harvey Kinkle. We stan polygamy in this house but c’mon man, she’s committed.
Nick’s f*ck boy behavior hits us in full force when we learn that he was ordered by the Dark Lord, aka, the Devil, aka, Lucifer, aka Sabrina’s BIOLOGICAL FATHER to get close to her and guide her down the path of night. Bad Nicky!
She’s understandably upset but is already in too deep girl, and she in love with him. Eventually she forgives him after making a massive sacrifice by becoming Lucifer’s prison, proving that he does genuinely loves her but doing so left him trapped him in hell.
Sabrina and the squad rescue Nick and frees him from Lucifer. But he’s going through a lot. He was trapped for months with the Dark Lord torturing him, so he’s depressed and suffers from PTSD, which is rough, but as Sabrina tries to understand he grows distant and spends a lot of time in a Warlocks’ only club ran by Dorian Gray, yes the Dorian Gray, called Dorian’s Gray Room.
There a back rooms in this club that allow warlocks to live out their darkest fantasies, fantasies as in the magical, BDSM, adult sexy times. Which he indulges in, behind Sabrina’s back. It’s one thing after the other with this one folks. One fateful day while looking for her boyfriend, she pushed her way through the club and catches him in the act.
We understand that you were going through a lot, Nick but to cheat on the girlfriend who was trying to be there for you is not a good look, my friend.
His cheating not only affected their relationship but also, I think, made her more insecure about her virginity. Sabrina being “pure” is a through line in the show. She was going to sleep with Harvey but doesn’t then with Nick but doesn’t. She’s is okay with waiting until she’s ready and there is nothing wrong with that. Which is something she had discussed with Nick.
For him then, to cheat so egregiously was basically a slap in the face after him claiming to be content in his sexless relationship with his own girlfriend.
Nicholas Scratch is a mess but here is his profile.
What are we going to do with Nicky? The last and final part of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be dropping to Netflix at some point and I kind of want him to redeem himself. I think the show should end with Nick and Sabrina happy even if they don’t end up together. And let’s pray that the writers don’t mess with Harvey and Roz or Theo and Robin because they are everything!
