Then went to search for her, with the help of his friend Elijah, who was watching the Sanderson sisters' house, he then found Emily being lured by the youngest Sanderson sister, Sarah, with her singing. Thackery then told Elijah to get his father and the town elders while he went to try and save his sister. Thackery then arrived at the Sanderson sisters' house, he saw the witches had Emily, intending to use her for a sacrifice for a potion that will make them younger. After Thackery sneaks into the house and the Sanderson sisters succeed at making Emily drink the potion, Thackery tries to save her and he knocks over the cauldron where the entire batch of the potion is in, spilling it on the floor, the oldest of the Sanderson sisters, Winnie, uses a spell to restrain him. After the Sanderson sisters succeed at draining the life out of Emily, and becoming younger they intended to make another batch of the potion and Thackery's life but he insults the three by calling them hags.
