Mayfair Witches Spoilers: Season 1 Episode 1

Searching for Mayfair Witches spoilers? While Alexandra Daddario's appearance as Rowan Fielding is usually appreciated, she seems to go through the motions here merely. She's a surgeon who lives on a yacht and always argues with the hospital administration because she's always correct and won't shut up about it.
We learn early on that she was adopted by Erica Gimpel, who portrays Ellie, her mysterious adoptive mother who is dying of cancer. Rowan has been kept in the dark about her background. After a couple of unintentional deaths in which she "imagines" a blood vessel exploding within the skull or heart of whatever affluent male she's unhappy with, we can safely assume that it has something to do with witches.

About half of "The Witching Hour" takes place in flashbacks, so we learn about Rowan's upbringing through his mother, Deidre, and from the supernatural antagonist Lasher (Jack Huston). Deidre, a young woman, falls pregnant after being tricked into it by her creepy uncle Cortland (Harry Hamlin). She is then forced to put the kid up for adoption to Ellie, who is told that Deidre's identity must never be disclosed.
When Rowan starts to worry about her newfound abilities, Ellie calls an agency in New Orleans and assigns the man in charge of Rowan's file, Ciprien Grieve (Tongayi Chirisa), to investigate. The simplicity with which everything comes together doesn't give me high hopes for the next seven episodes of this series, which hasn't shown anything to suggest it will be rich in surprises.

We haven't read the books, but we were able to piece together the clues that the pilot episode was presenting as the mystery about half an hour before we came to each reveal, and if we squint just so, we can see the skeleton of the entire season laid out before me. It's possible that Daddario, or at least her portrayal of the role, may save the day.
She's mostly good, but in this adaptation of Mayfair Witches, she's a girl-boss avenging angel who enjoys spending her time on a yacht with a few drinks, some casual sex, and blowing off the heads of arrogant men who, at least in this version of the story, have all deserved it.
Perhaps we will have a more interesting turn of events in the future if it turns out that she is mistakenly rupturing the carotid arteries of people who aren't overtly wicked. This seems to be moving in the same direction as the novels, where Rowan can choose who survives and who dies, albeit so far, we've only seen the "death" part of this power manifest, and even then, in a way that's beyond her control.
