Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West Volume 4, Chapter 2, Part 7 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • The kids are up to their usual antics of gossiping and being cruel to Liir.
  • They all tell Liir that Auntie Witch is his mother.
  • Liir seems confused by this idea.
  • Then the kids break into Auntie Witch's rooms and try to get Chistery to spill some secrets.
  • Chistery can only speak random words, not sentences, so they get little out of him.
  • "Watch Witch," said Chistery, playing with his fingers. "Which wretch which?" (4.2.7.17).
  • Elphaba comes back and throws them all out of her room.
