Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Good Witch is a pseudo-magical drama series that has been a staple of the Hallmark Channel since 2015. It follows the continuity of a series of Hallmark TV movies called The Good Witch that aired from 2008 to 2014.Cassie Nightingale (played by Catherine Bell) is a very good-natured and helpful woman with mysterious intuitive powers, seemingly passed down to her through the Merriwick family line. She was an adventurer in the past, having traversed the globe and experienced just about every world culture and landmark that is worth seeing. Now she makes her home in the small town of Middleton, which is where the origin of the Merriwick family began. She runs the Grey House Bed and Breakfast, where she lives with her daughter Grace and Grace's grandfather George, who acts as the building's handyman. She is also the proprietor of a small shop in town called the Bell, Book and Candle. At the start of the series, Cassie has recently lost her husband Jake, who was Middleton's police chief before his passing.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The first episode also introduces Dr. Sam Radford, who has just moved to Middleton from New York City with his son Nick to be the town doctor and to get Nick away from a troublesome history in the big city. The Radfords move into the house next door to Grey House, and Sam and Cassie strike up an instant friendship despite their philosophical differences.Other principle cast members include Stephanie Borden, the owner of the Bistro Cafe in town, Martha Tinsdale, the boisterous mayor of Middleton, and Abigail Pershing, Cassie's cousin and fellow possessor of Merriwick magic.A rotating selection of semi-regulars have come and gone over the course of the series, such as Cassie's stepson Brandon and his wife Tara, Cassie's stepdaughter Lori, current chief of police Derek, real estate agent Ryan, Sam's receptionist Eve, Martha's husband Tom, Sam's ex-wife Linda, and various brief love interests for Cassie, Stephanie and Abigail.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

Reality Ensues: Love doesn't conquer every problem automatically. However, it's possible to overcome just about any obstacle through a combination of The Power of Love and open, honest communication. Sometimes, two people who want to be together will find that they just don't work out. If you keep talking a lot and develop laryngitis, then ignore your doctor's advice to rest your voice, it will give out. Nick starts wanting out to study abroad in London. At first, he's all for it, but then realizes that living in a foreign country means more than just getting away from your dad. It means being in a different time zone, different culture, different weather patterns...he eventually decides to stay in the States.

Batman Gambit: Cassie is an absolute master at these (though she's always well-intentioned). Abigail's quite good as well, while Grace is an up and coming student. Martha pulls one on her two interns, Grace and Luke, in 5x07 by assigning them to compete and see who can write the best history of her family. When they work together instead, she reveals that they passed, because it was actually meant to be a team-building exercise.

Character Development: Nick comes to love Middleton and its small-town charm, also becoming more thoughtful and mature. Though she was always more mature than Nick, Grace learns that even though one can have a lot of insight into someone's character, that doesn't always mean they'll welcome your advice. Sam learns to accept magic and have faith in things he can't measure, as well as becoming a better father to Nick.

Good Witch Versus Bad Witch: Abigail started out as more of an antagonistic bad witch, only wanting to use her abilities for selfish gain or to stir up trouble and constantly clashing with good witch Cassie about how to raise Grace. Abigail later received Character Development when she realized how good it felt using her powers to help people, though she still plays a more rash and outspoken Foil to Cassie, and is willing to be a little more overtly manipulative than Cassie would be.

Opposites Attract: Cassie and Sam are perfect foils for each other, with Sam as the analytical/practical one and Cassie being a "think-outside-the-box" type. She's an idealistic dreamer, and Sam starts out not believing in anything other than what he can see, touch, and measure. He's a physician, and she recommends alternative medicine. They often (though playfully) clash over even small things like coffee(Sam) vs. tea(Cassie). Despite this, their attraction for each other is apparent very early on, and they do have very similar values. Eventually they fall in love and get married.

Parental Bonus: Cassie mentions to Sam that she "woke up this morning thinking of" him. In context, it refers to how she no longer wakes up thinking about Jake, but it does raise certain (ahem) implications. In series 2, Tara says that having a baby will mean giving up her figure for nine months. Brandon smirks and says both of them will be giving that up. He follows this up with Shutting Up Now.

Posthumous Character: Jake's life and death play a fairly important role in Season 1, and to a lesser extent in later seasons.

Laser-Guided Karma: A positive example. At the end of Season 1, it's noted that Cassie's old landlord helped her to retain Bell, Book, and Candle in part because she helped his granddaughter a while back.

Demoted to Extra: Brandon and Tara fall out of focus in later seasons, only appearing in a few episodes in seasons 4 and 5 each, with Lori disappearing altogether after season 1. Chief Sanders, at first Martha's Number Two, also falls victim to this.

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
 Good Witch / int_c33ba0a8
comment
Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Lori was a semi-important character in Season 1, living at Grey House and often acting in the Big (Half) Sister role for Grace. Then in Season 2 she simply stopped appearing in any episodes (she's mentioned in 2x09 as being "on assignment in LA," whatever that means). In Season 5, it's briefly mentioned she is working abroad and can't attend Sam and Cassie's wedding.

Shout-Out

Shout-Out: In 2x03, Eve says to Sam, "What's up, Doc?" George encourages Derek Sanders to act like "Columbo" and references his "one more thing" catchphrase, though the latter doesn't know who that is. Prince Henry is said to come from the island of Cordonia. In 5x10, Cassie quotes David McCullough Jr: “Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.”

 Good Witch / int_d7fc9fd0
comment
Vitriolic Best Buds: Abigail and Stephanie grow into this. They can barely hold a conversation without snarking (especially in the first few seasons), but when the chips are down, they really do care about each other. Grace and Nick become this, and so (a few moments of Ship Tease aside) it's unsurprising that they end up being step-siblings.

Sarcastic Devotee: Police Chief Sanders to Martha Tinsdale. He's incredibly devoted to helping her, but he'll also happily throw in some snark or tell her that a plan just isn't feasible. To a somewhat lesser extent, Eve serves as this to Sam. She's his secretary, but not afraid to offer snarky suggestions when necessary.

Heel–Face Return
 Good Witch / int_f9892096
comment
Heel–Face Return: Sam's ex-wife Linda Wallace has a multi-episode arc in Seasons 1 and 2, showing her to be manipulative and controlling. She attempts to force Nick to come back with her to New York, essentially setting up Sam as the bad guy for not letting Nick go. When that fails, Linda decides to stick around, meddling in their lives and getting jealous over all the time Sam spends with Cassie. She leaves with no real resolution, convinced that Sam and Nick are both "against" her and claiming she has to hurry back to New York for her job. When Linda finally returns to Middleton for Nick's graduation at the end of Season 5, she is much more genial. She is concerned about Nick moving so far away for college, but it is revealed that she feels guilty about not being there for Nick and that the further distance will make it worse. By the end of the episode, Linda enjoys the graduation party along with everyone else, she and Sam are said to have gone in together on a nice graduation gift for Nick, and Sam even agrees to let Nick stay with her over the summer before he starts college.
