Witches in uniform are tasked with saving the world in Freeform's new series Motherland: Fort Salem. Set in an alternate America where witches made a deal with the government to fight for the country in return for ending their persecution, the series focuses on a trio of young witches Raelle (Taylor Hickson), Abigail (Ashley Nicole Williams), and Tally (Jessica Sutton) who must work as a team to survive training at Fort Salem.
The series from Claws creator and executive producer Eliot Laurence follows the young women as they hone their powers of magic to defeat a common, mutable enemy that is staging terrorist attacks.
Motherland establishes its queer credentials early in the pilot episode when Raelle meets the mysterious and compelling Scylla (Amalia Holm) and sparks immediately fly. Before the end of the episode, the women have cemented a fiery physical relationship, although it's soon revealed that Scylla is not all that she appears to be.
The latest episode, airing Wednesday, sees the arrival of male witches, in particular, a witch with whom Scylla has a past. In the exclusive clip below, Raelle and Scylla finally meet up to discuss the male witch's suspicious death.
Motherland: Fort Salem airs Wednesdays on Freeform.
