Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) is part of a dark plot twist in Sabrina season 2...
WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW
Ever since the first season of CAOS came out in October 2018, fans have been obsessed with Nick. Gavin Leatherwood's character starts out as one of Sabrina's classmates at the Academy of the Unseen Arts but quickly becomes so much more. In season 2, Nick takes on a much bigger role as he rivals Harvey for Sabrina's attention. However, there is a massive Nick twist at the end and viewers are heartbroken by it.
Will Nick be in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 3? Is he the devil?
In season 2 of CAOS, Sabrina officially breaks up with Harvey because she is worried that her life as a witch could put him in danger. There are still some unresolved feelings between the two of them but, for the most part, Harbrina is over. Harvey and Ros then start dating and Nick suddenly takes centre stage in Sabrina's life. And, given how much Nick appears to care for Sabrina, people really ship Nabrina.
And this is why the twist is so devastating. In the CAOS season 2 finale, we learn that the Dark Lord asked Nick to get close to Sabrina and be nice to her in a bid to manipulate her. He tells Sabrina that he never meant to hurt her and that he did not know the Dark Lord's agenda (to kickstart the apocalypse) but Sabrina tells him that it doesn't matter. Ultimately, he's hurt her and broken their trust.
Things get even more emotional as the episode unfurls though. In a bid to make amends for his wrongs, Nick helps Sabrina, her friends and her family try to trap Lucifer in an Acheron (a small magical puzzle that acts as a prison). This fails and, as a result, Nick offers to imprison Lucifer in his body. He says: "I love you Spellman. You taught me how to love," and then he sacrifices himself.
Of course, everyone is absolutely losing it over the twist...
Nick literally sacrificed his life for Sabrina, thinking she’d never forgive him and said “I love you” and “you taught me how to love” I CANNOT IM SO DEPRESSED UGHHHHHH #CAOS pic.twitter.com/Ix4hjVFvMw— Kristen 🥃 MAYBE A QUICK BATHROOM BREAK (@shippyfangirl) April 7, 2019

anD THEN YOU SACRIFICED YOURSELF FOR SABRINA'S LIFE OMFG I'M STILL CRYING #CAOS
#CAOS Nick loves Sabrina for who she is. HE SUPPORTED HER THROUGH EVERYTHING. HE DIDN'T EVEN BLINK AN EYE WHEN SHE ASKED HIM TO DO SOMETHING. SUPPORTED HER IN OVERTHROWING THE PATRIACHY AND HE SACRIFIED HIMSELF FOR HER— 𝘫𝘢𝘴𝘮𝘪𝘯 (@sxlfshwoman) April 6, 2019
Nick Scratch is the epitome of man goals
The season then ends with Madam Satan taking Nick, with the Dark Lord trapped in his body, into Hell. It seems like Nick is gone forever and Sabrina is distraught but all is not as it first appears. In the final scene, Harvey, Ros and Theo ask Sabrina what they should do next and she says: "So it might be impossible and it might get us killed... let's go to Hell and get my boyfriend back."
In other words, we're 99.9% sure that Nick will star in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Part 3 and the season will likely focus on Sabrina, Harvey, Ros and Theo working together to bring him back from Hell. As it stands, Netflix and CAOS's creators are yet to confirm anything about Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Part 3 but we shall update you as soon as they do.
