The magic returns in “A Budding Romance,” the season three premiere of “Good Witch.” The enchantress Cassie Nightingale (Catherine Bell), along with the residents of Middleton, wait with anticipation as the rare plant, the Middleton Merriwick, readies to bloom again for the first time in decades, promising the most magical year of all. Martha (Catherine Disher), devises a strategy to let the world know Middleton houses the one-of-a-kind Merriwick, escorting a curious botanist from the University to the botanical gardens to study its wonder.
George (Peter MacNeill) accidentally reveals Sam (James Denton) and Cassie’s not-so-secret secret they are officially together, causing Grace (Bailee Madison) to feel hurt as she wasn’t told first. A cryptic text from Nick (Rhys Matthew Bond) leads Grace to think he plans to ask her out, but she worries that this could complicate their friendship. Later in the botanical gardens, it is discovered someone cut a stalk off the Merriwick and as it declines, it appears the plant is not alone in being affected.
