INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- FOYER- MORNING. Leaves are everywhere as it is silent in the Halliwell manor. It is deathly silent. In the dining room, DR. GRIFFITHS lies hanging out of the window with blood dripping out of his right ear. But he’s not the only in a similar position.
Inside of the sunroom lies PRUE HALLIWELL and PIPER HALLIWELL. Prue has blood pooling from behind her head and right ear. Her younger sister, Piper, has blood leaking from her nose and left hand.
A dark blue and black wisp appears, disappearing just before a skull appears and then the Angel of Destiny stands in front of Prue and Piper.
Angel of Death: Come…
Sparkling white lights leave Prue and move towards the Angel of Death. They quickly disappear, leaving Prue standing in front of him with confusion on her face as she looks at the deathly angel before her.
Prue: What happened? What are you doing here?
Angel of Death: You know why I’m here.
She shakes her head frantically as she looks down to see her body next to Piper.
Prue: No. I’m not dead.
Angel of Death: But you are Prue. Accept it so that you can move on to the afterlife.
She looks at him in anger as she shakes her head.
Prue: I don’t think so.
She waves her arm around in an attempt to TK him away, but he doesn’t move an inch. He simply sighs in disbelief.
Angel of Death: I thought that you learned last time that you cannot fight me, Prue. I am inevitable.
Prue (getting into her fighting stance): Well, I’m not going with you anywhere.
Bright blue and white lights appear, alerting Prue and the Angel of Death. As the lights dissipate and leave Leo standing above Prue’s body and Piper, the Angel of Death looks at him in disbelief.
Angel of Death: This cannot be.
Leo bends down and places each hand over the sisters. Golden lights emit from each hand and they shine on the two sisters.
Prue: That’s right. Leo, come on.
Angel of Death: This isn’t right. You’re not supposed to be healed.
Piper’s wounds slowly begin to heal as Leo gives a relieved sigh, just before frantically looking back at Prue’s body which has yet to be healed. Just as Piper is completely healed, Prue’s wounds begin to heal as well.
The Angel of Death quickly reaches towards Prue, but she steps backwards away from him.
Prue (declaring): It’s not my time yet.
Piper opens her eyes and looks up in confusion before realizing she is on the floor.
The Angel of Death shakes his head at Prue with concern on his face.
Angel of Death: I am going to find out what is going on. And when I do, I’m coming back for you.
Prue looks at him in worry just as he disappears within a dark blue and black wisp. And then it disappears as well. Not a moment after, shining white lights appear on Prue and she disappears within them. The lights travel to Prue’s body and enter into her.
As Piper begins to sit up, she looks between the pieces of wood next to her and Leo.
Piper: What happened?
Prue slowly opens her eyes and lets out a groan. Piper looks at her in concern.
Piper: You okay?
Prue sits up as she looks at them in worry.
Prue: I don’t know. But where’s Phoebe?
Leo stands up before reaching his hands out to them. They grab his hands and slowly stand up.
Leo: We got to get down to the Underworld fast.
Piper: What? Why?
Leo: Phoebe’s down there.
Prue and Piper look at him in confusion.
Leo: I’ll explain there.
He grabs their hands and they disappear in bright blue and white lights.
INT- UNDERWORLD- CAVE. The dust-covered cave is lit up by a dozen or so candles that sit on a small altar as PHOEBE HALLIWELL, who has a tear-dried face, stares at the altar. Behind her stands her demon boyfriend COLE TURNER. No words are being spoken as they both hope that her sisters Prue and Piper were saved by Leo.
At the entrance of the cave, three demons shimmer in, quickly alerting Phoebe and Cole who turn around at their sudden presence.
Demon #1: Okay witch…your time has come.
Phoebe slowly nods her head before turning to Cole.
Phoebe: Are you sure Prue and Piper were okay?
Phoebe nods her head before a tear falls down her face.
She turns back to the demons and nods her head.
Phoebe: I’m ready.
Demon #1: Good.
The three demons look at each other and smirk before looking back at Cole. Phoebe looks at them in worry that they’re about do something just before Cole places his hand on her shoulder.
He quickly grabs and hugs her, causing her to hug him back as she is in terror about what is to come for them.
Unbeknownst to her, Cole smirks at the three demons before pulling out an athamae and stabbing Phoebe in the stomach. She gasps at the sharp pain and lets out a loud cry as Cole pulls the knife out of her. He unemotionally lets her body drop to the ground with her face colliding with the ground, breaking her nose.
Cole delicately takes out a black cloth from inside his robe and wipes the blood off of the athamae.
Cole: Now…tell the Source that the witch… (she transform into KLEA from the Brotherhood)…is dead.
She shimmers out with her red eyes showing as the three demons smirk at each other and look at Phoebe.
INT- UNDERWORLD- CAVE. Just as the three demons step towards Phoebe, bright blue and white lights appear in the cave. As they disappear, they leave Leo, Prue, and Piper.
The three immediately notice Phoebe lying on the ground with a pool of blood under her and the three demons approaching her.
Prue TKs one of the demons into another one. The third demon runs towards them just as Piper extends her wrists and the demon freezes.
Piper: Leo. Go heal Phoebe!
Leo rushes towards Phoebe. The first demon stands up and runs towards Prue who TKs him away again.
Leo pulls Phoebe over and sees the bloody hole in her stomach from the athamae wound. He places his hands over her as the golden light emits from his hands and onto her. As the second one runs towards Piper, she extends her wrists again, but this time the demon blows up.
Just as the first demon stands up, he looks over to notice that Leo is still trying to heal Phoebe. He conjures an energy ball and throws it at Leo.
Prue TKs the energy ball back to the demon and he blows up. Piper extends her wrists at the final demon in front of her and the frozen demon explodes.
Piper lets out a small sigh of relief before realizing that Leo is supposed to be healing Phoebe. Prue and Piper rush to Leo who is looking down at Phoebe with a frown.
Piper: Leo, what’s the matter? Why aren’t you healing her?
Leo: I-I can’t heal the dead.
Prue and Piper look at him in fear as they both drop down to their younger sister’s body.
Prue: Come on, Phoebe! Wake up!
Leo looks up at the entrance of the cave in worry.
Prue covers her eyes as tears begin to flow down her pale cheeks. Piper cradles Phoebe’s body and rocks herself back and forth with her.
Leo looks back up at the entrance of the cave again and grabs the sisters. As two demons walk in and spot them, Leo, Prue, Piper, and Phoebe’s body disappear in blue and white lights.
Demon #1: We’ve got to tell the Source they’ve got the body!
The second demon shimmers out, followed by the other demon.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- PARLOR- MORNING. Leo, Prue, Piper, and Phoebe’s body appear in blue and white lights.
Leo immediately spots Dr. Griffiths’ body hanging out of the window. Just as he is about to take off towards him, Prue holds out her hand.
Prue (staring blankly away): Don’t bother. He’s already dead.
Leo: How do you know?
Prue: I…I just know, okay?
Leo looks between her and Piper and he shakes his head as he tries to figure out what to say or do.
She leans down to her as Piper continues to cradle Phoebe’s body.
Piper shakes her head as tears fall down her face.
Piper: Phoebe’s gone.
Prue shakes her head as tears roll down her face as well. Prue grabs Piper and Piper cries into his shoulder. Prue rubs Phoebe’s cheeks as she looks at her now deceased sister.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- PARLOR- NOON. It is now 12:30 P.M. A police camera’s flash goes off as the parlor and dining room is now a crime scene. Police officers, criminal investigators, paramedics, and the coroner is there. Phoebe’s body lied amongst the wreckage by Shax in the sunroom in order for everyone to believe that this, along with being stabbed, was how Phoebe had died. Dr. Griffith’s body lies in the same manner left by Shax’s attack.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- LIVING ROOM- NOON. Piper is leaning on Prue’s shoulder rocking herself as a young Latino inspector, Inspector Damian, is writing in his notepad.
Prue: We brought the doctor here because we really wanted him to see my brother-in-law. He feels kind of sick.
Inspector Damian: Your brother-in-law… (To Piper) which is your husband?
Piper (Staring at the sunroom): Yes.
Inspector Damian (letting out a long sigh): Did you see what the killer looked like?
Prue (Remembering how she, Piper, and Leo arrived to Phoebe too late to see who killed her): We didn’t see him.
Inspector Damian: You didn’t?
Prue: N-No… (Pausing to remember the “story” her and Leo came up with)…We weren’t here when this happened. We were at the store. We were on our way home from the store and we came home to see…P-Phoebe…
Inspector Damian (Looking at Prue in confusion): Okay. I find that a little weird.
Prue looks up at the inspector in wonder on how their “story” has a flaw in it.
Inspector Damian: You came home from the store, but yet I don’t see any groceries anywhere. So…aga
Prue looks away as she realizes the small yet important flaw in their “story”. Now, both sisters aren’t looking at the inspector and he notices this.
Inspector Damian: Is there something you two aren’t telling me?
Darryl walks up to Piper’s side and looks at Inspector Damian in disbelief.
Darryl: Damian…I think you should let them grieve before you start questioning them.
Inspector Damian: But we need to know who did this.
Darryl: Damian… (He holds back from saying anything else, letting his colleague know that he knows this family personally.)
Inspector Damian nods his head and waves his hands in the air in defeat.
Inspector Damian: Okay. But rest assured, I will find the monster who did this.
Prue and Piper both look up at him when he said “monster”. He walks away from them as they look at each other.
Prue: Piper…Go upstairs and---
Piper: No…I don’t want to leave Phoebe.
Her eldest sister slowly nods her head just as Leo walks into the room.
Prue (To Leo): Stay here. I have to go upstairs.
Leo nods his head as Prue stands up and walks out of the room. He sits down next to Piper and holds her in his arms just as she begins to shed tears again.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- ATTIC- NOON. Prue walks in and quickly but quietly shuts the door behind her. She makes her way to the Book of Shadows and she opens the BOS and begins turning the pages. She stops as she sees the “To Summon a Spirit” spell.
INT- UNDERWORLD- CAVE. Flames blaze from a fire as a woman with a golden dress, The ORACLE, steps forward to the hooded and devilishly winged SOURCE OF ALL EVIL, who stands holding his sword to the ground. The flames of the fire light up his devilish appearance as the Oracle bends down on her knees and bows down to the evil before her.
The Source: Oracle…
The Oracle (Standing up and looking at the Source): Your liege…I have seen something that you will be interested in. It involves the Charmed Ones.
The Source: The Charmed Ones are dead.
The Oracle: Not all of them.
The Source: One gone ends the threat. Of course, if you had foreseen that a white lighter was going to save the other two witches, they’d all be gone. (He raises his sword to her neck.) Be grateful that I do not end your life right now.
The Oracle: Yes, but then how would you see into the future without me?
The Source: Have you forgotten about the Seer?
She rolls her eyes and looks away in anger.
The Oracle: I have not.
The Source: Besides, without the Charmed Ones to worry about anymore, I may not need to see into the future.
The Oracle: Mmm. Well, my liege…you may want to keep me around a little while longer.
The Source (lowering his sword back to the ground): Have you foreseen something?
The Oracle: Yes… Even though your assassin succeeded in killing the doctor, the woman…she still survives.
The Source: Send my assassin after her. And this time, make sure you foresee anything or anyone that can save her or stop it.
The Oracle nods her head before bending down and bowing to the Source once again before disappearing in a golden ball of light.
INT- SOUTH BAY SOCIAL SERVICES- BOB COWAN’S OFFICE- NOON. A TV shows a reporter, ELANA DOMINIGUEZ standing in front of the Halliwell Manor as the headline “Murders in Quiet Neighborhood” goes across the screen.
Elana: We have yet to get any more info on who may be a suspect in the murders of Phoebe Halliwell and David Griffiths, but we will keep you informed as soon as we are given any new information. This is Elana Dominiguez.
The TV turns off as a frowning young woman, PAIGE MATTHEWS, is looking down at her boss BOB COWAN, who is sitting at his desk.
Paige: I can’t believe it.
Cowan: I know Paige…
Paige: I knew both of them, Mr. Cowan. They didn’t deserve for that to happen to them.
Cowan: I know…it’s sad. I don’t know what we are going to do.
Paige: Well, I think I should maybe go check on her family. Let them know my deepest sympathies and was a great friend. I mean, I am trying to be a social worker.
Cowan: Were you close with them?
Paige (shaking her head): No, but I was friends with Phoebe. Well, I was before she graduated. After she graduated, it’s like she was never able to hang out. She was always busy doing something else.
Cowan: Okay, but you should let her family grieve on their own for right now. Maybe in a few days you should go by and check on them.
Paige lets out a deep sigh before nodding her head.
Paige: And what about Dr. Griffiths’ family? I mean, he has been trying to get his son and daughter back whatever way he could. And now… (Frowning at Mr. Cowan) they’ll never get to see him again.
Mr. Cowan (sighing): Listen, Paige. I know that this is terrible for you right now. You should take the rest of the day off. Go home and get some rest.
Paige slowly nods her head, knowing that she has a lot on her mind. She slowly opens the door and walks out of her boss’ office.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- ATTIC- NOON. Lit candles are standing on the floor in a circle as Prue stands at the BOS.
Prue: Phoebe! Please come down here, Phoebe! I want to talk to you…No. I need to talk to you. Please…
She takes a long sigh before reading the spell.
Prue: Hear these words, here my cries, spirit from the other side, come to me I summon thee…cross now the great divide.
Slowly, sparkling white lights appear in the circle of lit candles, giving hope to Prue that she would see her younger sister’s lively face again, but instead she is greeted by her transparent grandmother, GRAMS.
Prue: Grams. I called for Phoebe.
Grams: I know sweetie…but right now, I can only come to you.
Prue: Why? Where’s Phoebe?
Grams: She’s where your mother and I are.
Prue (nodding her head): How is she?
Grams: Your mother and I are helping her through this.
Prue: Yes, but how is she?
Grams (shaking her head): I’m not allowed to tell you, just like you’re not allowed to see her…for right now anyways.
Prue steps back in disbelief and rolls her eyes.
Prue: Are you kidding me? Piper and I’s sister is dead and we can’t even see her spirit?
Prue and Grams turn to look at Piper walking into the room with disbelief on her face.
Grams: Piper, honey---
Piper: Why can’t we see her? Why can’t we see Phoebe?
Grams: Well…because seeing Phoebe right now keeps her alive to you and that…keeps you from moving on and continuing your destiny.
Prue rolls her eyes again.
Piper (frantically shaking her head): What are you talking about Grams? (She walks around Grams and to Prue’s side.) It’s over, it’s done. Phoebe’s gone and---
Grams: You may not understand it at this moment…but you will my darlings. Just remember…there is always a reason for everything.
Prue and Piper look at her in disbelief just as she disappears in sparkling white lights. Prue quickly starts flipping through the pages of the BOS again.
Piper (Looking at Prue in confusion): What are you doing?
Prue: Looking for a spell to bring Phoebe to us. Maybe a different spell will bring her instead. (She looks up to the door and waves her hand, TK-ing a dresser in front of the door.
Piper: What was that for?
Prue: In case someone tries to barge in, we won’t have to worry about exposure…again.
Piper nods her head just as Prue stops flipping the pages and is on the “To Call a Lost Witch” page.
EXT- SOUTH BAY SOCIAL SERVICES- PARKING LOT- NOON. Paige walks out of the building, with her blue jean purse over her shoulder. She walks towards her green BMW and opens the driver’s door. She gets in and puts her purse in another seat. She buckles herself and starts her car.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- ATTIC- NOON. Prue and Piper stand above a small table that has the BOS, a knife, and a bowl with herbs and other ingredients needed for the spell.
Prue: Okay…you ready?
Piper nods her head as the two look at the spell in the BOS.
Prue/Piper: Power of the witches rise, course unseen across the skies, come to us who call you near, come to us and settle here.
Piper picks up the knife and hands it to Prue.
Piper: Your go.
EXT- SAN FRANCISCO- NOON. Paige starts to reverse her car out of her parking spot. She switches gears and starts driving down the parking lot. Just as she reaches the exit, she puts on her right-turn blinker.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- ATTIC- NOON. Blood drips from Prue’s finger as she holds it above the bowl full of ingredients for the spell.
Prue: Blood to blood, I summon thee…
She squeezes her finger and more blood drips into the bowl.
Prue: Blood to blood, return to me.
A slight wind begins to pick up and the two sisters turn around to notice the flames of the candles slightly moving. After a few moments though, the slight wind is gone and Piper shakes her head.
Piper: For a second there…I thought it would work.
EXT- SAN FRANCISCO- NOON. Paige is about to make a right turn until she notices a moving truck with the name Halliwell’s Moving Company driving down the street.
Paige gazes at the truck as it goes past her line of sight. She slowly begins nodding her head just before she turns on her left blinker and makes a right turn, driving down the street.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- ATTIC- NOON. Piper begins to walk around the table and towards when she hears a crashing sound. She turns around to see the small table flipped over with the BOS, bowl, knife, and all of the ingredients scattered across the floor. Prue looks down at the BOS and then turns to a chest across the attic. She waves her hand and the trunk opens.
Prue waves her hand upwards, causing the BOS to rise and then she waves it to the left, TK-ing the BOS away and into the trunk, closing it with a slam.
Piper quickly makes her way to Prue and hugs her. Prue takes in the hug and hugs her sister back.
Prue: I’m done.
Prue: These powers…they’re not a blessing… (They release each other from their hug as Prue wipes a tear coming down Piper’s face.) …they’re a curse.
She nods her head, just before she TKs the dresser away from in front of the door.
Prue (after letting out a sigh): We can’t do this anymore, Piper.
She and Piper hold each other as they walk towards the door. Piper opens it and walks out, followed by Prue who turns around and takes one long look at the attic. Then, she closes the door and continues behind Piper.
INT- HALLIWELL MANOR- SITTING ROOM - AFTERNOON. There is no one left downstairs, besides Leo and DARRYL who are standing near the spot where Prue and Piper once lied and where Phoebe’s body lied before the coroner took her body away for autopsy.
Darryl: Good thinking putting Phoebe’s… (Not wanting to say the word “body”)…you know…down in this spot. You made it look like she really died here.
Leo: Well, if I hadn’t gotten here in time, it would’ve been worse.
Prue (walking towards them): What do you mean?
Leo and Darryl turn around to Prue.
Leo: Where’s Piper?
Prue: She went to lie down.
Darryl: Listen Prue…Phoebe was… (Not finding the right thing to say.) She’s…I’m so sorry.
Prue nods her head at him just before the sound of a door opening catches their attention. Then the sound of a door closing happens just before they start walking towards the sound. They quickly see VICTOR, the Halliwell sisters’ father, rushing in with worry, fear, concern, and pain evident on his face.
Victor: Prue! Piper!
He rushes to her and hugs her as she hugs him back.
Victor: Oh dear god, Prue. I’m sorry. I can’t believe this.
Victor: It’s okay. I’m here now.
Victor: Leo, what happened?
Victor: Tell me why my baby girl is gone!
Prue (slowly breaking her and Victor’s hug): He tried, dad. He couldn’t do anything.
Victor: But isn’t that what whitelighters are for? They’re supposed to heal people!
Leo: I cannot heal the dead!
Victor looks away from him and shakes his head. Silence fills the room before Victor looks towards the stairs.
Victor: Is Piper upstairs?
Prue: Yeah. She’s in her room getting some rest.
Victor: I’ll go check on her.
Darryl pats Leo’s shoulder in wonder.
Darryl: You okay, man?
Leo: Yeah, it’s just a lot is going on and I don’t like that Victor is blaming me for not saving Phoebe.
Prue: Leo, he’s just angry and doesn’t understand why this happened. And he’s not alone.
The doorbell rings before Leo can respond to her. She walks towards the front door with Leo and Darryl wondering who is at the door.
Prue opens the door and looks in wonder at the sight of Paige standing at the door.
Prue (Trying to understand who Paige is): Hi.
Paige: I’m know that this is a very bad time and it’s only been a few hours, but…I just wanted to give you my deepest sympathies.
Prue (after nodding her head): Thanks.
Paige: You’re welcome.
An awkward silence occurs as Paige tries to figure out what else to say while Prue studies the young woman in front of her.
Prue: Have we met before?
Paige: No…I mean, I don’t think so. I’ve seen you before at your sister’s club…Piper, isn’t it?
Prue: Yeah. Did you know Phoebe?
Paige nods her head and slightly smiles.
Paige: Yeah. We were friends. She and I were in the same psychology class.
Prue: Phoebe loved psychology…she had a passion for it.
Paige: Yeah, she definitely did. She was always trying to get the best grade in class.
Prue (looking at Paige in confusion): Really?
Paige: Yeah, she was so competitive and the class brain. I always wanted to be as smart as her.
Prue: Wow…I never knew that.
Paige looks at her in confusion before Prue tries to explain to her what she means.
Prue: What I meant to say was I didn’t know Phoebe was super-smart in psychology. I mean I knew that she was well in it, but not the class brain well.
Paige: Yeah, but she was so friendly and everyone loved her.
Prue nods her head just before she closes her eyes.
Paige (looking at her in confusion): Are you okay?
Prue: Uh… (She opens her eyes and looks at Paige in wonder.) I don’t know.
Wind quickly picks up and Prue and Paige turn to see a mini tornado fly into them, carrying them through the manor and into the dining room table. Leo and Darryl cover their faces from the leaves blowing around them and the strong winds.
The mini tornado dies down and disappear leaving Shax stalking towards them. Paige looks up from on the floor and gazes at Shax in terror. Darryl quickly pulls out his gun and points it at Shax. He begins shooting at him, causing Shax to groan in slight pain at the bullets entering him. Paige manages to stand up as Prue does the same.
Shax turns to Darryl and Leo and begins to throw his arm around, preparing to launch an attack on them. Just as he is about to attack, he bounces back from an explosion but it only makes him step a few feet away. Prue, Paige, Leo, and Darryl spot Piper on the stairs with her hands extended.
Shax turns back to Prue and Paige and quickly throws his arm around, sending a blast to them which Prue instinctively TKs back at him. He groans in pain as Prue steps backwards.
Prue: Paige! Run!
Paige runs into the sunroom as Prue does the same. As Paige opens the door and runs outside, Prue runs back into the sitting room and faces Shax.
Prue: Piper! Try again!
Before Piper can do anything though, Shax turns back into a mini tornado and flies out of the manor, closing the doors behind him.
Everyone looks at each other in confusion for a moment before Prue begins to have a face of fear.
Piper: Why did he just attack us and then leave out of nowhere?
Prue: Because he’s not after us! He’s after her!
She takes off back into the sunroom and runs out of the door.
Piper rushes behind her sister, followed by Leo and Darryl.
CUT TO: EXT. PRESCOTT STREET ALLEY- SHORTLY AFTERWARDS
(PAIGE runs down the alley, before she slows down, finally stops, needing to take a breather. But just as she leans against the concrete wall, the wind begins to pick up again causing her to take off running again.
However, the winds pick up even quicker and the mini-tornado appears before her, freezing her in her tracks in terror. She steps backwards, covering her face as leaves blow everywhere as the mini-tornado dies down, leaving SHAX smirking evilly at her.)
PRUE (o.s): No!
(PRUE, PIPER, LEO and DARRYL come running around the corner.
Shax pulls back his arm as Prue pulls back hers, but Leo grabs it.)
LEO: No! You’re outside!
Shax releases his blast to Paige, causing her to cower in her arms. But just as the blast is about to reach her, the blast freezes in mid-air. Paige uncovers her arms, realizing that she is not hurt and sees that Shax is also frozen in place.
PRUE: Come over here!
(Paige turns around and rushes towards the others. Just as she reaches them, the blast unfreezes but Prue TKs it right back to Shax. The blast only causes Shax to step backwards a few steps.
PRUE: Piper, freeze him!
(Piper extends her wrists and Shax freezes in place once again. Everyone sighs in relief but then Shax begins to adjust and move throughout Piper’s freezing.
PIPER: Okay! He’s adjusting!
PRUE: We need to get out of here!
(Everyone, including Paige runs in the opposite direction as Shax is adjusting. Just as they are out of his sight, he unfreezes completely. He looks around in confusion and anger before transforming back into a mini-tornado and disappearing.
INT. HALLIWELL MANOR- SITTING ROOM- AFTERNOON.
(Piper walks in with a glass of water in her hand and hands it to Paige who is sitting on the couch next to Prue. Leo and Darryl stand across from them.
PRUE: Are you okay?
(Paige starts drinking the glass of water quickly, not missing a beat. Just as she finishes her water, she starts shaking her head.
PAIGE: No. I am not okay. Someone just tried to attack me, someone who is apparently a demon and is after me for some odd reason!
PIPER: Okay, easy…It’s okay. We’ll protect you.
PIPER: Prue, she’s an innocent. We can’t just ignore an innocent…Look I know that right now we would both rather be grieving but we can’t right now. We have to save her.
(Prue looks away from her sister as she thinks about it.
PIPER: Phoebe wouldn’t want us to not save an innocent.
The eldest sister slowly looks back at Piper as she realizes that she is right about that.
PRUE (Nodding her head): Okay… (Turns to Paige) You have to stay here.
PAIGE (in shock): What?! Are you kidding me?! I can’t stay here!
(She stands up and walks around the couch, causing Prue to walk around the other side and step in front of her.
PRUE (in disbelief): Did you not hear that a demon is after you? I mean, you saw that demon with your own eyes and you saw what he could do. And you don’t want to be protected?
(Piper walks over to her eldest sister and the young woman as she tries to find a way to calm them both down.
PIPER (To Paige): Look, can you let us save you, please? And after that, you can leave and you don’t have to worry about us ever again.
Paige exchanges looks between Prue and Piper.)
PIPER: But please…let us save you.
(Paige looks at Piper as she is deciding what she should do. She soon nods her head and Piper sighs in relief.
Piper: Alright… (Looking between Prue and Paige) Before I go check the Book about Shax, does anyone need anything to drink or eat?
PAIGE: I ate earlier (walks towards parlor).
PRUE: I’m not hungry (walks towards the steps and up the stairs).
Piper (shaking her head in disbelief): Okay. We’ll worry about drinking and eating later!
(Leo walks up to her as she lets out a sigh. He looks down at her, feeling the exhaustion that Piper has.
LEO: Are you okay?
PIPER: I am not even remotely okay, Leo. (Tears begin to form in her eyes.) I just lost my baby sister! And we haven’t even gotten a day to mourn her before evil found its way back here.
(Leo reaches and pulls her into a hug, which she accepts. Before many tears fall down her face, she breaks their embrace.
PIPER: Okay…can you go check with the Elders about this? I mean, I know she’s an innocent, but there’s only so much protecting we can do against Shax now that we don’t…(Pausing for a moment) …have the Power of Three.
LEO (Nodding his head): Okay. I’ll be back as quick as I can.
(He disappears in bright blue and white lights before Darryl walks up to Piper.
DARRYL: I think I better get back to the station. Make sure that Inspector Damian doesn’t look too much into your case.
Piper: Case…right. (She drops her head in sadness.)
(She looks back up before reaching out to hug Darryl, followed by him hugging her back.
DARRYL: I’m sorry, Piper. (He releases her from their hug.) I’ll check on you and Prue later. Stay safe.
PIPER: Thank you, Darryl.
(He nods his head before walking towards the door, leaving Piper looking at Paige from afar who is watching TV.
EXT. UNDERWORLD- CAVE.
(Flames appear and as they disappear, they leave The Source of All Evil, along with his sword, standing before three demons who are on their knees.
THE SOURCE: Speak…
DEMON #1 (Standing up): We are here to report that there is a magical force brewing right now.
THE SOURCE: What does that have to do with me?
DEMON #1: The magical force is strong...very strong. We can sense it.
THE SOURCE: What is it?
Demon #1: We sense the return…of the Power of Three.
(The Source stares at them for a moment before he holds his hand out and a golden ball appears next to the demons. As it dissipates, it leaves the Oracle immediately bowing down on her knees.
THE ORACLE: My liege…?
The three demons turn around in shock to see the Oracle.)
THE SOURCE: Has my assassin killed the woman yet?
THE ORACLE: No. He tried to, but the other two Charmed Ones are relentless.
DEMON #2: OTHER two Charmed Ones? So we sensed right that the power of three has been reconstituted.
THE SOURCE: Not yet. I have sent my assassin after the one who can reconstitute the Charmed Ones.
THE ORACLE: And your assassin will not fail, my liege. I have not foreseen his vanquish.
THE SOURCE: No…I will let him know that plans have temporarily changed. I shall have someone else be sent after the girl, someone she would least expect.
(The Oracle bows down to her knees again, before disappearing in a golden ball of light.
THE SOURCE (Looking at the three demons): Keep sensing. I may need you later.
(The demons bow down on their knees once again before standing up and walking towards the exit of the cave, leaving the Source watching them exit.
INT. SAN FRANCISCO POLICE STATION- NIGHT.
(Police officers talk and walk all around the station as Darryl is sitting at his desk staring down at his coffee. Suddenly, the coffee shakes and Darryl looks up to see Inspector Damian leaning against his desk with a smirk on his face.
DAMIAN: Someone sure is thinking hard about something…or someone. Your wife?
DARRYL (shaking his head): No. I can’t stop thinking about…Phoebe.
Inspector Damian nods his head and looks at Darryl.
DAMIAN: I know you were close to her and her family, Morris. It’s sad what happened to the woman and the doctor. It’s fortunate that the other three weren’t attacked as well.
(Darryl looks up at Inspector Damian in confusion.
DARRYL: Other three? There are only two sisters left.
DAMIAN: Right. I was talking about the brother-in-law too.
DARRYL (slowly nodding his head): Okay…
DAMIAN: Well, I have to leave now. I have to go out and get some things done before the end of the night.
DARRYL: Okay. Well, see ya Damian.
DAMIAN: See ya Morris.
(Inspector Damian turns around and walks towards the exit as Darryl looks at him, having a strange feeling about the man.
INT. HALLIWELL MANOR- LIVING ROOM- NIGHT.
(The rain pours outside of the window and wind is blowing the bushes against the windows as Piper walks in holding a tray of tea and soup. She sets it on the table in front of Paige who looks from the food and up at her in disbelief.
PAIGE: I told you. I’m not hungry.
PIPER: You said you ate earlier and earlier from earlier meant that you ate this morning. So eat up.
(Paige slowly leans down and grabs the spoon. She tastes the soup and chews with a smile.
PAIGE: Wow… (Between chews) this is amazing.
PIPER: Thank you.
PAIGE: I’ve never tasted soup this good.
PIPER: I just put something together to get my mind off of...today.
Paige gives her a frown as she sets her spoon down. She turns to Piper with a sympathetic smile.)
PAIGE: I don’t think we formerly met. (She extends her hand to Piper.) I’m Paige Matthews. Also, I’m an assistant social worker.
PIPER (shakes her hand): I’m Piper Halliwell. I own P3.
PAIGE: I know, I’ve been to your club. It’s pretty great.
PIPER: Thank you.
PAIGE: You’re welcome…and with me currently working to be a social worker, if there’s anything you need, you can just give me a call.
PIPER: Thank you. (She gives a slight smile to Paige, feeling a strange sense of comfort from her conversation with Paige.)
(Bright blue and white lights appear next to them and when they disappear, they leave Leo standing above them. Piper and Paige both look up with the latter shocked at his entrance.
PIPER: So? What did the Elders say?
LEO: Well, they don’t know anything about her and they don’t know why the Source would send Shax after her. For now, they want you to protect her as best you can.
PAIGE (frustrated): Is that seriously all “they” had to say?
(Leo looks at them, anxiety clearly on his face, making Piper point her finger at him.
PIPER: Leo…what is it?
LEO: There’s something else that I found out.
PRUE (walking into the room): What is it?
(Prue walks over to the others with her arms crossed, wondering what Leo has found out.
PAIGE (To Prue): Hey. Listen, um, I’m sorry for earlier. I didn’t mean to be so---
PRUE (To Paige): Don’t worry about it. (To Leo) What were you saying?
LEO: So…there is a rumor going around “Up There” and in the Underworld that the Charmed Ones can be reconstituted.
(Prue and Piper look at each other in disbelief and look back at Leo with the same faces.
PRUE: Leo, that’s impossible.
LEO: And…I’m not finished. It’s being said that Paige…is a Charmed One. (Looking at Paige) And that’s why the Source sent Shax after you.
PAIGE: The Source? The Source of what?
PRUE (after sighing): …of all evil.
PAIGE (shaking her head): No. I can’t deal with this. I just can’t!
(She turns around and starts walking away.
PRUE: Paige, wait! Piper, freeze her!
Piper extends her wrists, but Paige just stops and turns around to them in frustration.
Prue, Piper, and Leo just stare at her in shock.
PIPER: She…s-she didn’t freeze. That means she’s a…
(Paige shakes her head and rolls her eyes.
PAIGE: I am not a witch! I am just a normal person with a normal life!
LEO: But you are a witch, Paige! You have to be! Otherwise, Piper would’ve been able to freeze you.
PAIGE (being stubborn): Maybe there’s another reason why she isn’t able to freeze me.
PRUE: Unless you’re a demon.
(Paige rolls her eyes at Prue.
PIPER: Prue…remember what Grams said earlier? She said we’re supposed to continue our destiny.
LEO: Grams? You talked to Grams?
PRUE (beginning to catch on to what Piper is thinking): You think Grams---
PIPER: She had to.
PAIGE: What are you talking about?
PRUE: Our grandmother…I tried to summon Phoebe to me, but she came instead and she told us that we couldn’t see Phoebe---
PIPER: Because it would keep us from continuing our destiny.
Leo looks at them and nods his head. )
LEO: Then the rumor must be right. (He looks at Paige with slight amazement that the Power of Three can once again be intact.) She is your sister.
(Piper begins pacing around the room as Prue shakes her head.
PRUE: I don’t believe this.
PAIGE (Looking between Prue and Piper in shock.): I...I-I have s-sisters.
Prue and Piper both look at her just as Leo looks up, hearing jingles.
PIPER (quickly noticing Leo looking upwards): They’re calling you? Right now?
LEO (nodding his head): I have to answer them, Piper. They may know something about this.
PRUE: You’re right. Go.
(Leo disappears in bright blue and white lights, leaving Paige once again mesmerized. Silence fills the room as Piper decides to stop pacing and sits down. Prue eyes Paige with an angry glare whilst Paige rolls her eyes at her.
PAIGE: Do you have something to say?
PRUE: Other than you can’t be our sister, no. Not really.
PIPER (attempting to stop the two from arguing): You guys…
PAIGE: What makes you think I want to be your sister?!
Lightning cackles, followed by thundering which leads to the power going out in the manor.
PRUE (throwing her hands in the air.): Great!
PIPER: Prue…calm down.
(Her eldest sister lets out a long sigh before nodding her head and running her hand through her hair.
PRUE: Okay…I’m…I’m sorry, Paige. I’m just a little---
PAIGE: I know…I’m sorry too. I know it’s been a VERY rough day, more so for you two. But can I go now?
PIPER (shaking her head in disbelief): No…no we can’t let you go out there in that weather.
PAIGE: So what? I’m going to have to spend the night here?
PIPER: No, just until the weather calms down.
PRUE: Actually, it’s supposed to rain all night so…I guess I should get you some cover. You can sleep in my bed.
PIPER: Where will you sleep, Prue?
PRUE: I will sleep down here. But right now, I need to go check the circuit breaker. Piper, come with me. I need someone to hold the flashlight for me.
(Piper looks at her in confusion.
PIPER: You can use your powers, Prue.
PRUE: Piper…I told you I don’t want to use my powers anymore…please…
(As she turns around and continues walking, Piper lets out a sigh.
PIPER (To Paige): Stay here, okay?
(As Piper takes off behind Prue, the new youngest sister looks around in wonder. Just seconds after the two disappear from her eyesight, she hears the shaking of the front door’s knob. Paige starts stepping backwards and lowers down to the floor, hiding herself on the side of the couch. The front door opens and the sound of shoes hitting the floor makes her almost gasp, but she covers her mouth with her hands.
Paige peeks around the couch and looks up to see Inspector Damian looking around with a smirk. She notices his black gloved hands as he walks towards the sitting room. Just as he is out of her view, Paige sneaks around the couch and stands up only to scream as Inspector Damian steps right in front of her. He grabs her by the neck, causing her to gasp for breath.)
DAMIAN: You pathetic witch… (Chuckling) you’ve made this too easy for me.
(Paige eyes Inspector Damian in fear as her left hand manages to touch the lamp on the end table next to her.
Paige: I’m not… (trying to catch her breath)…a witch.
DAMIAN: I mean, I am so glad that the Source assigned me the task of killing you. Wouldn’t want you stopping his plan, now would we?
(Paige wraps her hand around the lamp and quickly collides it to Inspector Damian’s head, causing him to release his grip on her throat. She hurries towards the sitting room while holding her throat just as the lights and power in the house cuts on.
PAIGE: P-Prue! Piper!
INT. HALLIWELL MANOR- BASEMENT- NIGHT.
(Prue, closing the circuit box and Piper, holding a flashlight, both look up in wonder and confusion
Then, they take off towards the stairs, in fear of what is happening to their new-found sister witch.
INT. HALLIWELL MANOR- SITTING ROOM- NIGHT.
(Paige is about to reach the dining room before Inspector Damian shimmers in front of her and throws her onto the steps of the stairs. He attempts to stand over as he forms an energy ball in his hand. Paige quickly kicks him in between his legs, causing him to bend down in pain and his energy ball to dissipate. He grabs in between his legs and groans in pain as Paige stands up.
Prue and Piper run into the dining room and Prue quickly TKs Inspector Damian away into a cabinet. The two run in to see Paige standing up on the steps. )
PRUE: You okay?
PAIGE: He was choking me, but y-yeah. I’m okay.
PIPER: Inspector Damian?!
Inspector Damian quickly stands up and forms an energy ball in his hand. Piper quickly extends her wrists and Inspector Damian freezes.
PIPER: Okay! We’re good, we’re good!
(He begins to unfreeze as he adjusts to Piper’s freezing. The three women look at him in shock.
PIPER: Okay! We’re not good, we’re not good!
Prue stands in front of Piper and Paige as if to shield them when Inspector Damian unfreezes.)
PRUE: Piper. Paige. Get upstairs!
Piper grabs Paige’s hand and pulls her up the stairs with her as Prue watches Inspector Damian completely unfreeze.)
DAMIAN: You know the Source only ordered me to kill the new witch. But I guess I can kill you and your other sister too, bitch.
(Prue quickly TKs him into the grandfather clock and he falls to the floor, struggling to stand up. Prue quickly hurries up the stairs.
INT. HALLIWELL MANOR- ATTIC- NIGHT.
(Piper and Paige just rush in with Piper turning around and looking out of the attic, hoping for Prue to come up the stairs. Paige looks at her in fear.
PAIGE: What do we do?
Piper looks over at the trunk across the room and points to it.)
PIPER: Open that trunk and grab the Book out of it! Hurry!
Just as Paige takes off towards the trunk, Piper turns to see Prue hurrying into the attic.)
PRUE: Okay! I fended him off, but he must be strong. I threw him into the grandfather clock, but I don’t think that’s gonna keep him down for long.
(Paige is looking down as she is pulling the Book of Shadows out of the trunk. She stares at the triquetra on the cover with a “wow” expression on her face.
(Paige snaps back from mesmerizing the BOS and turns around to Prue and Piper. She walks over to them and hands the book to Prue.
PAIGE: What is this?
PIPER: It’s our book of spells.
(Prue grabs the BOS and hurries to the stand with Piper and Paige behind her. She sets the Book down as she begins flipping through the pages at a speed her younger sister Piper hasn’t seen since their first year of being witches.
PIPER: Is there a spell in there for him?
Prue begins to quicken her pace as she looks in disbelief.)
PRUE: He’s not in the book!
PAIGE: Oh god! What are we gonna do?
(Prue looks around, hoping to find something that would help them defeat Inspector Damian. As she looks around, her eyes land on the Spirit Board which lays on an end table.
PRUE: We have to say the Power of Three Spell!
PAIGE: What’s that?
PIPER: If Leo’s right, then the spell should work!
(Suddenly, the door explodes as an energy ball dies out from hitting it. The young women turn their heads as pieces of the attic door fly everywhere.
Inspector Damian walks into the attic with a smirk on his face just as Prue reaches her hands to Piper’s and Paige’s. Piper accepts Prue’s hand, but Paige looks at Prue in uncertainty.
PRUE (To Paige): Trust me!
(Paige decides to trust her new-found eldest sister and takes her hand. The chandelier on the ceiling of the attic shakes above them, causing the young women and Inspector Damian to look up. A light blue light emits from the chandelier and illuminates the young women.
(He quickly conjures an energy ball and throws it towards the three women. Though the energy ball bounces off of the light and towards him. He ducks as the energy ball hits the hallway outside of the attic.
PRUE (To Paige): Say this spell with us!
Paige nods her head as at this point, she is willing to get rid of Inspector Damian any way necessary.)
PRUE: The Power of Three will set us free!
PRUE/PIPER: The Power of Three will set us free!
PRUE/PIPER/PAIGE: The Power of Three will set us free!
Inspector Damian shakes his head as he looks at Paige with a smirk.)
DAMIAN (To Paige): You think I’m the only one out there who’s going to come for you?! There are more evil beings out there worse than me!
PRUE/PIPER/PAIGE: The Power of Three will set us free!
DAMIAN (To Paige): You will not last long, witch! The Source will avenge me! He will make sure you are all dead!
PRUE/PIPER/PAIGE: The Power of Three will set us free!
DAMIAN: You will all die!!!
(He blows up in a fiery vanquish, leaving behind nothing. Paige turns her head away from the sight as Prue and Piper stare on.
Slowly but surely, Paige turns back to the spot where Inspector Damian once was.
PRUE: The Power of Three…
PIPER (sighing in relief): It worked.
(Paige takes in a deep breath and then lets it out. Prue turns to look at Paige as she knows what this means.
PRUE: You’re our sister.
PAIGE (Looking between Prue and the spot where Inspector Damian once stood): Who was that?
PIPER: Apparently a demon who was pretending to be an inspector.
PRUE: Boy, wait until we explain this to Darryl.
Paige begins walking away from Prue and Piper before they look at her in confusion.)
PAIGE: Paige? Are you okay?
PAIGE: No! I’m not okay! You’ve turned me into a witch!
Paige turns around and runs out of the attic as Piper attempts to stop her, but Prue reaches out and grabs Piper.)
PRUE: No Piper…she needs time.
PIPER (Letting out a stressed out sigh): Yeah, well so do we.
(Prue looks away to see the dark blue and black wisp across the attic. She watches it in fear as it disappears, knowing that Death is not far from them.
