The ancient prophecy said that when Cair Paravel's four thrones were filled with 2 sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve, it would not only be the end of the White Witch's reign, but also of her life. Period. So I agree that whatever the hag and werewolf were hoping to call up, it would not have been Jadis, although it probably would have been something vile.

Whether Jadis or someone or something else, she or it would most certainly have been thoroughly evil!

I assumed so too, after all the hag confidently asserted, "Whoever heard of a witch who really died? You can always bring them back!" This suggested to me that the knowledge to perform such dark magic had been handed down by subsequent generations of Jadis's supporters. It was quite clear that Nikabrik and the werewolf were also not only aware of such magic, but believed it to be possible. In the film the reference to the necessity for blood from a Son of Adam explains why it had not been done before.

This is something I cannot understand. How could someone as questionable as the witch of Endor call up a holy prophet like Samuel?

She didn't. She merely furnished the occasion. She doesn't have that power only God does. That, by the way, is entirely the explanation of the footnote I was referring to in my Bible although it is also my viewpoint.
