"The Magicians has done something I have never experienced on a show before: It gave me a chance to grieve," says Beth Elderkin, adding: "Speculative fiction has a way of helping us understand ourselves because it allows us to explore complicated, real experiences in a safe space...Likewise, watching this scene where characters used magic to express their mourning, singing out the feelings they may never be able to say out loud, broke me. Because I’ve done the same thing. My grief was echoed in their grief, creating a cycle of mourning. Back and forth, over and over. I’m still feeling it, even now. They never leave you."
