In the pilot episode, strangers Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) and Darrin (Dick York) meet one another by bumping into each other several times. They fall in love and get married.

Samantha tells Darrin she's a witch and proves it. Darrin is shocked, but realizes he loves Samantha and cannot give her up, and he tells her he wants her to become a suburban housewife and refrain from using magic. Later at a dinner party, Samantha uses her powers to get back at Darrin's condescending ex-girlfriend Sheila (Nancy Kovack).
