[Scene: Manor. Dining room. Paige is sitting at the table. The table is covered with drinks, cookies, chips and other snacks. Phoebe walks in holding a hot water bottle against her tummy.]
Phoebe: Ooh. Any idea what this meeting’s all about?
(Phoebe sits at the table.)
Paige: Oh, probably something to do with the kids.
Phoebe: Why, did something happen?
Paige: Oh, I’m sure they’ve gotten kidnapped by the latest demon or something.
Phoebe: Paige, that is so not funny.
Paige: You get so emotional when you’re PMS-ed.
Phoebe: And you get mean.
Paige: I do not get mean. I’m above it all. Nothing happens to me.
(Piper walks in.)
Piper: All righty then!
(Paige is startled and orbs out and back in.)
Phoebe: Oh, right, nothing happens to you. You’re above it all.
Paige: Fine, I get a little jumpy.
Piper: And I get a little pissy, so watch it.
Phoebe, Paige: We know.
Paige: The good news is we all get over it at the same time.
Piper: As long as we don’t kill each other in the process, which brings me to what we need to talk about.
Paige: Ah, that sounds serious. That calls for ice cream with three spoons.
(Ice cream orbs in in front of Paige.)
Phoebe: Ah-ah-ah! Personal gain.
Paige: I know, but screw it, it’s too good.
(Paige puts a spoonful of ice cream in her mouth.)
Piper: Anyway, I’ve been wanting to tell you guys something for a while. Um, I just didn’t know how to say it.
Phoebe: Oh, my god, are you pregnant again?
Piper: No, this is not a good thing. Do you guys remember Zola, the Elder who disappeared?
Piper: Well, he didn’t disappear. He was killed. Leo killed him.
Phoebe: Leo killed him?
Piper: It was an accident. He didn’t mean to. I mean, he was tricked.
Paige: You might want to tell that to Zola.
(The light bulbs in the chandelier above the table smash.)
Phoebe, Paige: Oh!
(Piper storms into the kitchen. Phoebe and Paige follow.)
Phoebe: Hey, hey, what was that?
Piper: I was angry.
Paige: Uh, yeah, but you blew it up without even looking at it.
Piper: Well, our emotions are tied to our powers so apparently I’m feeling a little weird.
Paige: Well, okay, but…
Piper: I was just hoping for a little understanding, that’s all.
Phoebe: I know. We’re sorry. It’s just, we’re not big fans of the Elders right now.
Paige: I mean, plus it’s not like Leo could really hurt anybody anyway. We don’t believe that he could actually do that.
Piper: Well, unfortunately the Elders don’t think that way. And if they can prove that he did do it, they won’t think he did it by accident.
(Leo orbs in.)
Leo: Sorry to interrupt, but I have to tell you something that you’re probably not gonna like.
Paige: Did you kill anybody else? I’m sorry.
Leo: You told them?
Piper: Well, I had to. It affects them too.
Leo: More than you know. They want to assign you a new Whitelighter because of it.
Leo: They’re getting more suspicious about what happened. They want to make sure you’re protected.
Paige: Protected from what? You?
Piper: They’re out of their minds.
Leo: Still, he’s gonna be sent here tomorrow.
Piper: Well, I hope I don’t blow him up.
Leo: Piper, you can’t blow up a whitelighter.
Phoebe: Why not? She blows you up all the time.
Piper: Look, we have enough people orbing in and out of here on a daily basis and we don’t need another.
(The toaster blows up.)
Leo: Got it.
(He orbs out.)
Phoebe: That was a great toaster.
[Scene: Park. Danny, the new Whitelighter, is there meditating in the air. Leo orbs in.]
Leo: You know, you probably shouldn’t be doing that out in the open.
Danny: Oh, please! Nobody’s here. It’s midnight. Besides, I would’ve sensed if anybody was coming.
Leo: You didn’t sense me.
Danny: You’re an Elder. Or at least you used to be.
Leo: You know, I just here to tell you that maybe you don’t want to go by the sisters’ house tomorrow. Just a friendly warning.
Danny: Oh, yeah? Did you warn Zola, too, before something happened to him? You see, the word’s out, Leo. Nobody knows which side you’re on anymore, which is precisely why I am going to the sisters tomorrow. It’s a dream job for any Whitelighter. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to prepare myself.
(Leo orbs out. Danny hears rustling in the bushes near by.)
(Something growls. Then three black wolf-like creatures jump out of the bushes and attack Danny. Danny falls to the ground and screams as they maul him to death.)
[Scene: Manor. Kitchen. The fire alarm beeps. Smoke is coming out of the oven. Piper and Leo walk in.]
Piper: Oh, no. (She walks over to the oven.) Oh, no, no, no, no, no. That’s the second batch. (She opens the oven and pulls out burned muffins.) Could you turn that thing off?
Leo: Uh, I’ll get the ladder.
Piper: Oh, forget it.
(She blows up the fire alarm.)
Leo: Hey, what is going on with you guys?
Piper: Witches with PMS. Look out. Great. Now not only am I exhausted but I’m starving.
(Phoebe and Paige walk in.)
Phoebe: Oh, I’ll see your exhausting and starving and I raise you bloated. (She sees the burnt muffins.) Oh, no, no. That is so sad.
Paige: Hey, no weeping. You promised.
Leo: Have you guys seen the new Whitelighter yet?
Paige: No, Leo. You probably scared him off.
Leo: No, that’s the thing. I didn’t scare him off. He should’ve been here by now. I’ll be right back.
(Leo orbs out.)
Piper: Better not be with that Whitelighter.
Phoebe: Did anyone else have weird dreams last night?
Piper: No, you?
Phoebe: Yeah, and they were really violent and like painful.
Paige: Hey, you wanna go somewhere with me?
Paige: I have to go over to Agent Brody’s place and, uh, try to snoop around. Find out if he’s a demon or not.
Phoebe: You think he’s a demon?
Paige: No, I don’t. But Piper does.
Piper: I don’t know what he is, but more importantly, we need to find out what he wants. We have enough to worry about around here without having to worry about him too. So can you go with Miss Jumpy here and make sure she doesn’t orb out in front of him, just in case he is a Fed and nothing else?
Paige: I can control myself.
Phoebe: I can’t go anyway. I have to go to work.
Piper: I thought you weren’t going back in for a couple of days.
Phoebe: I’m not, but that’s when Les leaves and I just — I have this feeling that he’s pulling away from me.
Paige: Hey, maybe he’s pulling away from you because he’s, uh, I don’t know, leaving.
Phoebe: That might be true.
Piper: Okay, would you please just be careful around Brody? And we’ll talk about Leo moving in when I get back.
(Piper leaves the kitchen.)
[Scene: Magic School. Four Elders are standing around Danny trying to heal him. Leo orbs in.]
(Odin walks over to Leo.)
Odin: Where have you been?
Leo: With the girls. Why, wh-what happened? What’s wrong with him?
Odin: You don’t know?
Leo: No, I don’t know. Wait, you think I did this?
Odin: We don’t know what to think, except that he was supposed to report to the Charmed Ones and you didn’t want him to.
Leo: So that makes me guilty? How do you know a Darklighter didn’t do this?
Odin: Does that look like a Darklighter did that? You were the last one to see him, Leo. Just like you were the last one to see Zola.
Leo: It wasn’t me.
Odin: No? Then who was it?
[Scene: Manor. Wyatt’s room. Piper is standing at the doorway.]
Piper: Have a nice nap. Sweet dreams.
(She closes the door and walks down the hallway. Phoebe and Paige walk up to her.)
Phoebe: Hey, could we talk to you for a sec?
Piper: What about?
Paige: Well, it’s about Leo, you know, moving back in.
Piper: Is there a problem?
Paige: Well, you know we love, love Leo, but, uh…
Phoebe: Are you sure this is a good time for this? I mean, like you said, it’s really crazy. So much is going on.
Paige: Yeah, you know, Zola, the Elders.
Phoebe: Agent Brody.
Paige: And, um, he does hear voices.
Piper: We all hear voices sometimes.
(Piper starts walking down the stairs. Phoebe and Paige follow.)
Paige: Yeah, we might hear voices, but we don’t see little floating heads going along with them.
Piper: All the more reason he should be here where he is safe.
Phoebe: But what about the boys?
Piper: What about them?
Phoebe: Well, aren’t you afraid they’ll be in danger?
Piper: From who? Leo? That’s ridiculous.
Phoebe: No, not from Leo. Whoever’s after Leo.
Paige: Have you thought it through?
Piper: Look, I just want my family back. Isn’t that enough?
(A bunch of flowers in a vase sitting on a table at the bottom of the stairs blow up. Paige orbs out and orbs back in.)
Phoebe: What is going on with our powers lately?
Piper: I don’t know, but it’s getting awfully expensive.
(Leo orbs in.)
Leo: What happened?
Phoebe: That’s a good question. I’ll be with Leslie. We’ll talk about what we were talking about later.
Piper: No, there’s nothing else to talk about.
Paige: You want me to cast a spell and clean up?
Piper: No more magic unless we have to.
Leo: We might have to. I found out why the Whitelighter didn’t show up. He was attacked.
Piper: By a Darklighter?
Leo: No, by me. At least that’s what the Elders think.
Piper: Oh, you’ve gotta be kidding.
Leo: I was the last one to see him.
Piper: Well, obviously not. Maybe the Elders are setting you up.
Piper: Well, what? They haven’t exactly been your greatest allies lately.
Leo: I’m more concerned that it has something to do with you guys. I mean, he was gonna come here and be your Whitelighter, your guide. You know, maybe somebody doesn’t want that.
Paige: I’ll go check the Book of Shadows.
Piper: No, I’ll do it. You should go find out about Brody. For all we know, he could have something to do with this.
(Paige heads for the front door.)
Leo: Listen, I’m sorry, getting you into all this.
Piper: It’s not your fault. Let’s go prove it.
[Scene: The Bay Mirror. Phoebe’s Office. Les is there reading the paper. Phoebe walks in and looks over his shoulder.]
Phoebe: Since when do you read horoscopes?
Les: Since I decided to make “Conflicted in Castro” my last letter. She, uh, doesn’t know if she should stay with someone, worries that their signs might not be compatible.
Phoebe: I didn’t know you believed in that stuff.
Les: Well, I don’t, but I know you do. I’m just channelling the boss here.
Phoebe: Hmm. Let me see. (She takes the paper.) “Expect the unexpected when the mystical second blue of the year rises over the next three nights, and mars in Aries, romance can flourish.” Hmm. Sounds promising.
Les: Well, for her maybe.
Phoebe: What is that supposed to mean?
Phoebe: Les, something’s wrong. I know it is, and I’ve been feeling it for the last few days.
Les: Funny. I’ve been feeling the same thing from you.
Phoebe: Okay, so do you want to talk about it?
Les: What is there to talk about? I’m moving away, you’re coming back to work and that’s it, isn’t it?
Phoebe: Well, it doesn’t have to be.
Les: Doesn’t it? I mean, what are we gonna do, fly back and forth and see each other?
Phoebe: You’re only moving to L.A.
Les: Yeah, but then after that I’m moving back to Philly.
Phoebe: So we’ll work something out.
Les: We barely see each other here. How are we gonna do it long distance?
Phoebe: Wait, we see each other here.
Les: Only when you don’t bail on me at the last minute, which you do all the time. I mean, admit it. (The intercom beeps.) Yeah.
Voice From Intercom: Editorial is waiting on your copy.
Les: Alright, alright. (to Phoebe) I gotta do this.
Phoebe: Okay, so when do you want to talk?
Les: I don’t know. Uh, how about tonight at dinner?
Phoebe: I can’t do dinner tonight. But I can do breakfast tomorrow, and then maybe dinner and then maybe breakfast again.
Les: I’ll hold you to it.
[Scene: Agent Brody’s Apartment. Agent Brody looks out his window and sees Paige’s car parked on the street with Paige sitting in it. He smiles and grabs his keys.]
[Cut to Paige’s car. She sees Agent Brody leave his apartment. She crouches down and orbs out.]
[Cut to Agent Brody’s Apartment. Paige orbs in.]
Paige: Definitely a bachelor.
(The door opens and Agent Brody walks in.)
Agent Brody: Hey. (Paige orbs out and back in.) Whoa.
Paige: Guess the secret’s out.
Agent Brody: Can you do that whenever you want to?
Paige: Yeah. And apparently when I don’t want. Piper’s gonna kill me.
Agent Brody: I won’t tell her.
Paige: Thank you.
Agent Brody: Not as long as you tell me why you broke into my apartment.
Paige: Blackmailing. I knew there’d be something.
Agent Brody: Let me guess. You don’t believe that I’m really a Federal Agent. You came here to find out if I’m a demon or something, right?
Agent Brody: The best way to find out is to test my blood, isn’t it?
Paige: Funny. For a guy who claims he’s not a demon, you sure do know a lot about them.
Agent Brody: No, I know a lot about witches. I know a lot about you. So go ahead. Forensics kit’s right there. I’ve got nothing to hide.
(Paige picks up a knife and a vial. He holds out his finger.)
Paige: May I?
Agent Brody: You may. (Paige stabs the tip of his finger and the blood drips into the vial.) If that’s o-positive, you owe me.
Paige: I don’t owe you anything.
Agent Brody: I don’t have much time, Paige. None of us do. Look, if I’m right, there’s a new threat coming, a new power unlike anything that you’ve ever seen before and you’re gonna need my help to stop it.
Paige: How do I know you’re not the threat?
Agent Brody: I don’t want to hurt you.
(Paige orbs out.)
[Scene: Manor. Attic. Piper and Leo are there. Piper is looking through the Book of Shadows. Leo is pacing across the room.]
Piper: I give up.
Leo: We’ve gotta be missing something.
Piper: The only thing that attacks a Whitelighter is a Darklighter. That’s it.
Leo: But he wasn’t shot with a poisoned arrow. He was mauled.
Piper: What do you mean mauled? Like by an animal?
Leo: I don’t know. Whatever it was, it’s gotta be supernatural. Otherwise he would’ve orbed out. Plus, there’s gotta be more than one of them. He was so messed up.
Piper: So we’ll set a trap.
Leo: A trap?
Piper: With the crystals. We’ve done it before.
Leo: But what are you gonna use to lure the demons?
Piper: A Whitelighter, if that’s what they’re after.
Leo: No way. The Elders would never go for it.
Piper: Look, nobody’s gonna get hurt. We’ll set the trap for whoever or whatever it is before they attack. If we don’t find out who’s really doing this, they’re gonna keep blaming you. This could exonerate you for everything.
Piper: I’ll go get the boys ready. You should take them with you to magic school.
(Piper leaves. The creature head floats through the attic.)
Creature Head: You can’t be saved. You’re a danger to them all.
[Time lapse. Attic. Phoebe, Paige and Marcus, a whitelighter, are there. Paige is making a potion. It explodes.]
Paige: Whew! Well, that ought to do it.
Phoebe: That ought to do what, burn down the house?
Paige: Remember, we don’t know what we’re up against, so I just, you know, thought I’d throw in the works.
Marcus: Wait, you’re not ready yet? You’re still working on the vanquishing potion?
Paige: I’m refining it.
Marcus: But you called me down here an hour ago.
Paige: Because we don’t know when they’re gonna attack.
Marcus: You mean maul me.
Phoebe: Alright, you know what? For a Whitelighter you are really wimpy.
Paige: (whispers) That’s why they sent him.
Marcus: I heard that.
Paige: Relax, will you? Please, we’re not gonna let anybody hurt you.
Phoebe: Hey, where’s Leo?
Paige: He’s at Magic School so he has an alibi for when they attack.
Phoebe: And when they do attack, all we have to do is trigger the crystals, right?
Paige: Well, theoretically, but that’s why we have backup.
(Piper walks in.)
Piper: Did you test Brody’s blood yet?
Paige: Yeah, he’s not a demon.
Piper: Well, that officially makes him tomorrow’s problem. How’s it going in here?
Marcus: The sitting duck is still sitting.
Phoebe: Grumpy. Very grumpy.
Paige: Yeah, well, remember, it’s almost midnight, and that’s when things get very exciting around here.
Phoebe: Especially with the blue moon rising.
Paige: Wait a second. That reminds me. Something I read in the Book about how if there are two blue moons in one year that seems to only happen every fifty years.
Piper: That doesn’t bode well.
(Paige walks to the window and sees the blue moon rising.)
(Suddenly, Piper, Phoebe and Paige change into the black wolf-like creatures that mauled Danny.)
Marcus: What the hell?
(They attack Marcus and scratch him. He kicks them off and traps them in the crystal cage.)
[Scene: Manor. Attic. The girls are laying asleep on the floor inside the crystal cage. Phoebe wakes up.]
Phoebe: Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up!
Piper: What? Where are the boys?
Phoebe: The boys are fine. We’re not.
Paige: Keep it down. (Piper sees Marcus. She hits Paige on the leg.) Hey!
Piper: Hey, yourself. Look!
Paige: Oh, my god. What happened to him?
Phoebe: I think we’re what happened to him.
Paige: What are you talking about?
Phoebe: We’re in the cage, that’s what I’m talking about. I think we trapped ourselves.
Piper: No, we didn’t, did we?
Phoebe: I think that dream I had was real.
Paige: So you’re saying that we did this to him?
Phoebe: Do you have a better explanation?
Paige: That is crazy.
(Paige tries to step out of the crystal cage and she is knocked back onto the floor.)
Phoebe: As you were saying?
Paige: Okay. What does this mean? We’re demons?
Piper: No, we didn’t turn into demons, Paige.
Phoebe: We turned into monsters.
Paige: I know we all get a little testy this time of month, but that’s ridiculous.
Piper: It can’t be that. It’s gotta be something else.
Phoebe: Like what, the blue moon?
Piper: We gotta get out of here. This is crazy. Paige, try to orb one of these crystals away.
Paige: Crystal. (A crystal orbs out, through the glass window. A cat meows outside.) Blue moon?
(They stand up.)
Phoebe: Bright side, the Elders can’t blame Leo anymore.
Piper: No, now they can blame us. You gotta take him to magic school and find someone to heal him.
Paige: How do I explain that?
Piper: Well, tell them that we got knocked out, and whatever you do, stay calm and don’t turn into anything in front of them.
(Paige orbs out with Marcus.)
Piper: We gotta find a way to stop this from happening again.
Phoebe: I can’t do that now because I have to go meet Leslie for breakfast.
Piper: Oh, come on!
Phoebe: I know, but if I don’t show up again he’s never gonna talk to me again. Gotta go.
Piper: You better be home before the moon rises. And stay away from red meat.
[Cut to Magic School. Paige, Leo and the Elders are there. The Elders are healing Marcus.]
Odin: I thought you were supposed to trap them.
Paige: It kind of caught us by surprise, you know?
Odin: Did you see what they looked like? Were they demons?
Paige: It was night.
Odin: We have to find out who did this and vanquish them before they attack us. I’m ordering a lockdown on all Whitelighters until we catch these beasts.
Paige: Beasts. That’s a harsh word, don’t you think?
Odin: At least you’ve been exonerated. I’m, uh, sorry I doubted you.
Leo: So am I.
Odin: We have a lot of healing to do, Leo, I admit, but forgiveness must prevail if we’re to work together. Now, this new power that we’re sensing, it is coming closer and it’s more threatening.
Paige: Okay, new power. What new power?
Odin: We don’t know exactly, but if it is responsible for this attack, Elders could be next. Help us, Leo.
(Odin orbs out.)
Paige: Okay, I have to find Agent Brody.
Paige: Because he talked about that new power thing, so he must know something about it.
Leo: Alright, but be careful. Watch out for those beasts.
Paige: About those beasts? That would be us.
Leo: What are you talking about?
Paige: Those funky powers, the sharp fangs, the claws, we’re the ones who’ve been attacking the Whitelighters. Something is transforming us. It may not be this blue moon thing after all. I have to go.
[Scene: Outside a Cafe. Leslie is sitting at a table. He looks at his watch, finishes his coffee, and starts to walk off. Phoebe runs up to him.]
Phoebe: Leslie! Hi! I am so sorry, but I’m here now. Things got a little wild back at the house.
Les: Phoebe, it’s a quarter to ten.
Phoebe: I know, and I would’ve called but I-I just… (Leslie walks away. Phoebe follows.) Leslie, please. I said was sorry.
Les: Yeah, I know you are. You always are.
Phoebe: Don’t be mad at me. Come on, I really wanted to be here. I did.
Les: Let me guess. Something came up, right?
Phoebe: Yes, something came up.
Les: But you can’t tell me what it is, just like you never can.
Phoebe: Right, and it’s not because I don’t want to…
Les: It’s complicated. Yeah, yeah. I know.
Phoebe: Would you stop finishing my sentences, please?
Les: Well, why not? They all end the same way. Look, I’m sorry. It’s just, I’m frustrated. I guess I didn’t think I was gonna like you this much.
Phoebe: Yeah, I know the feeling.
Les: I gotta go to work. Wouldn’t want to be late on my last day.
[Scene: Agent Brody’s apartment. Agent Brody is there. There’s a knock at the door. He tucks a gun down the back of his jeans and opens the door. Paige is standing there.]
Agent Brody: Paige. Since when do you use doors?
Paige: Look, I need to talk to you.
(Paige walks in.)
Agent Brody: Great. Don’t tell me I didn’t check out.
Paige: What? No. You checked out. You knew you would. I’m here because I need to talk to you about the whole new power you were telling me about.
Agent Brody: Why, did something happen?
Paige: I’m not sure. But let’s just say that you aren’t the only one who is concerned about them.
Agent Brody: Did you see them, did they attack, what?
Paige: Just curious. How do you even know about them anyway?
Agent Brody: That’s a, that’s a long story.
Paige: Why don’t you give me the short version? Look, you said you wanted my help, didn’t you?
Agent Brody: No, I said that you would need mine.
Paige: Please, will you just tell me what you know?
Agent Brody: I just know they’re coming. That’s why I’m here. I don’t know. Everything seems to fit a certain pattern.
Paige: Pattern? What pattern?
Agent Brody: All I know is that they come from ancient times when they were in power. I’m not sure why, but something happened and then they went away, and now they’re trying to come back. They’ve been trying to come back for some time. And to do that, they need power. And that’s the pattern. I mean, they’re always after it. It won’t be long before they come after yours.
Paige: I think they may have already tried.
Agent Brody: You can’t let them. Paige, you’ve gotta do everything that you can to stop them, otherwise…
Paige: Otherwise what?
Agent Brody: They’re gonna kill you. Just like they killed my parents. I was, uh, five when it happened. No one knew who did it. That’s why I became a cop to find out. I never would’ve imagined that it would brought me to here, but it has. I am not leaving this city until I prove it.
[Scene: Underworld. Cave. A bunch of demons are standing in the middle of the cave. Three creature head demons are swirling around them. The creature head demons zap the demons and vanquish all but one demon. The creature head demons turn into two men and one woman.]
Alpha: You’re certain he’s the most powerful?
Beta: He’s their leader.
Gamma: Was their leader.
(The demon tries to shimmer out.)
Alpha: You’re not going anywhere.
Demon: Why are you doing this? Who are you?
Gamma: I still think a direct approach is best.
Beta: We’ve tried that. It’s not working. Leo’s being drawn back to his family, back to good.
Alpha: But he’s not there yet. We must drive him away, make them afraid of him if we’re to succeed. And you’re going to help us do exactly that.
[Scene: Manor. Kitchen. Piper and Leo are there. Piper is showing Leo vials of potions.]
Piper: This one should work if the beasts are just possessing us. This one should work if the last one doesn’t. It should knock out about ten of them. This one… well, this one only use if you really, really have to.
Leo: Why, what is it?
Piper: A little bit of everything, just in case.
Leo: Piper, I’m not using these on you.
Piper: You might have to.
Leo: Look, it’s the last night of a blue moon. All we have to do is wait until it passes.
Piper: Unless it’s not the Blue Moon that’s doing this to us. No, Paige said that…
Leo: The new power, I know. If it’s only after power, why would it be doing all this? It doesn’t make any sense.
Piper: Better safe than sorry. Now, Paige and Phoebe are coming home in a couple of minutes. We need to get the cage ready.
Leo: Piper, I know you’re scared.
Piper: I’m not scared. I’m worried we’re gonna kill somebody.
Leo: You’re not gonna kill anybody. I promise. Look, you already saved me. Now let me save you, and then maybe it’ll be time for me to move back in again.
Piper: It already is. Grab those.
(Piper walks out of the kitchen. The possessor demon appears.)
Leo: Who are you?
Possessor Demon: Actually, I’m about to be you.
(The demon enters Leo’s body, possessing him.)
Piper: (from other room) Are you coming?
Possessed Leo: I’ll be right there.
(He cracks his neck.)
[Cut to the attic. Piper, Phoebe and Paige are there.]
Paige: Do you think we should put some snacks in the cage?
Phoebe: Like what, a wildebeest?
Piper: Please don’t say beast.
Paige: No, I’m just saying we don’t know how long we’re gonna be in here. What if I get hungry?
Piper: Well, then we’ll have Leo throw us Whitelighter. Don’t worry about it.
Paige: Well, I do worry about it. I just don’t like not knowing what’s going on.
Piper: Leo thinks it’s the blue moon for sure, so all we have to do is make it until morning without eating anyone and we’ll be fine.
Paige: What if Leo’s wrong, you know? I mean, it’s not like he’s been himself lately.
Piper: We’ve been through this.
Phoebe: No, we haven’t, not enough.
Piper: Look, you guys, trust me. We don’t have to worry about him anymore.
(Possessed Leo walks in.)
Possessed Leo: Talking about me?
Piper: Where are the potions?
Possessed Leo: Potions? Oh, I think I left them in the kitchen.
(He cracks his neck.)
Piper: What was that?
Possessed Leo: What was what?
Paige: Okay, uh, I’ll get them from the kitchen.
(Paige walks out of the attic.)
Phoebe: So keep your eye on us after we transform and make sure we don’t move any of the crystals.
Piper: Oh, no. I don’t want Leo here, in case we attack him.
(The doorbell rings.)
Piper: Who could that be?
Phoebe: Oh, I think I know. I’ll take care of it.
Piper: Well, you better hurry.
(Phoebe leaves the attic.)
Possessed Leo: Why would you attack me?
Piper: Well, technically you’re still an Elder, and we feel the same way about Elders as we do Whitelighters, so just to be safe.
Possessed Leo: So you view me as a threat.
(Leo cracks his neck.)
[Cut to the foyer. Phoebe opens the door.)
Phoebe: Leslie, hey.
Les: Let me guess. Bad time?
Les: Look, I-I-I just wanted to apologise.
Phoebe: For what?
Les: Well, for the way I acted earlier. I was, I was just so…
Phoebe: Yeah, really upset, I know.
Les: Well, now who’s finishing whose sentences? Look, I just didn’t want to leave it like that, that’s all.
Phoebe: And I don’t either, uh, but is it possible that maybe I could call you tomorrow?
Les: We’re running out of tomorrows.
(They hear a loud crash coming from the attic.)
Phoebe: Uh, yeah, I know. I’m gonna call you tomorrow. I promise. (She kisses him quickly.) Okay.
(She closes the door.)
[Cut to the attic. Possessed Leo throws bolts of electricity at Piper. She dives out of the way. Phoebe and Paige walk in.)
Phoebe: Leo, what are you doing?
(The television orbs towards Leo and he orbs out.)
Paige: Piper, you okay?
Phoebe: Still think Leo’s fine?
Piper: That wasn’t Leo. He was possessed or something.
Paige: Again? Well, it seems to happen a whole lot.
Phoebe: And if it did happen again, it can’t be connected to the blue moon, ’cause it’s not up yet.
Paige: Maybe it’s that whole new power thing. Maybe that’s who’s setting Leo up.
Piper: But why? For what?
Paige: Well, if Agent Brody’s right, for power.
[Cut to the Magic School. Leo and the Elders are throwing electricity bolts at each other. The girls orb in.]
Phoebe: Okay, now what?
Piper: Throw the potions. (to Leo) Hey! Over here.
(He looks at the girls and they each throw a potion at him. Leo falls backwards leaving the possessor demon standing there.)
(Piper tries to blow the possessor demon up but he shimmers out.)
Odin: You have betrayed us again!
(Odin zaps Leo and he falls to the floor.)
Piper: What are you doing?
Odin: I’m warning you! Stay out of this!
(Piper steps forward.)
Phoebe: Oh, no, Piper. Do not.
Odin: You will be stopped.
(The blue moon rises and the girls turn into the wolf-like creatures. They run towards the Elders and Odin throws electricity bolts at them, knocking them back unconscious.)
[Scene: Magic School. Morning. Piper, Phoebe and Paige wake up.]
Paige: Oh, what happened?
Odin: You attacked us.
Phoebe: Oh, really? Then how come I’m the one with the headache?
Odin: We were forced to defend ourselves.
Piper: Where is Leo?
Odin: I sent him away.
Piper: Away. Where?
Odin: It’s none of your concern now. You attempted to save him, you failed. That’s that.
Piper: The hell it is.
Odin: He tried to kill two more Elders.
Paige: No. He was Possessed. You just didn’t see it.
Odin: No. What I saw was what I never would’ve imagined. The Charmed Ones turning into demons.
Phoebe: No, that wasn’t demonic. That was, you know, that time of the month.
Paige: No! It was a Blue Moon.
Piper: The point is, we didn’t have a choice. We can’t control it.
Odin: Which is why I’m keeping you here until we figure out what to do with you.
Piper: What to do with us? You need to let us go so we can find the real demon is.
Odin: Out of the question.
Phoebe: Then I guess you won’t be finding out about that new power. Only they could’ve sent the demon after Leo.
Paige: You said yourself they may be coming after the Elders next.
Odin: But what if you turn back into …
Phoebe: Oh, that was just the Blue Moon. That won’t happen for another fifty years or so.
Piper: Yeah, and by that time, we’ll just be a menace to a rest home, so I think you’re safe.
Odin: Very well. See what you can find out.
Piper: No. Not without Leo first.
Odin: He can’t be trusted. He wouldn’t be vulnerable to possession if…
Piper: You can give us Leo now or you can find your own damn connection to the new power.
(Odin flicks his hand and Leo orbs in.)
Leo: What’s going on?
Piper: You’re about to be exonerated. Again. Book of Shadows.
(The girls and Leo orb out.)
[Scene: Underworld. Cave. The Possessor demon is there.]
Possessor Demon: What else do you want from me? I did what you asked. You’ve got to protect me. They’ll find me.
Piper: We already have.
(He sees Piper, Phoebe and Paige standing near by.)
Paige: Who were you talking to?
(He tries to shimmer out but Piper freezes him. She then unfreezes his head.)
Possessor Demon: What happened? Did you just freeze me?
Piper: She asked you a question. Would you rather I blew you up?
Possessor Demon: Wait. Don’t. If I tell you, they’ll kill me.
Phoebe: If you don’t tell us, we’ll kill you.
Paige: You may want to pick your poison.
Possessor Demon: They’re more powerful than anything you’ve ever seen.
Piper: Who is?
(The creature head demon flies past the possessor demon, zaps him and then disappears. The possessor demon is vanquished.)
Paige: Well, I guess Leo isn’t seeing things after all.
Phoebe: Can we get out of here now, please?
Piper: Whoever you are, stay away from my husband.
(They orb out.)
[Scene: Agent Brody’s apartment. Agent Brody is there. The phone rings and he answers it.]
Agent Brody: Brody. Paige. Hey. I was getting worried.
Paige: Yeah, I know. That’s why I wanted to call you to let you know I was okay.
Agent Brody: Well, I’m glad you did. So, uh. what happened? This new power wasn’t really after you?
Paige: No, it was actually after something else.
Agent Brody: Oh. I mean, that’s good, obviously. I was just hoping to, you know, get a lead out of this. That’s all.
Paige: If it makes you feel any better, they were after my brother-in-law.
Agent Brody: Brother-in-law?
Paige: Yeah, well, not directly. They actually used a demon to get to him.
Agent Brody: A demon?
Paige: Well, he’s fine now, though. You know, we dis-Possessed him.
Agent Brody: Wait. You did what?
Paige: Well, we got rid of the demon. We get possessed all the time. It’s no big deal. (She chuckles.) Hello?
Agent Brody: Um, yeah, sorry. I guess I’m just a little new at this stuff.
Paige: I thought you said you knew about demons.
Agent Brody: Uh, no, I said I knew a lot about witches. The rest are just, um, theories. That is until I met you.
Paige: Well, be careful what you wish for.
Agent Brody: What do you mean?
Paige: What you don’t know can’t hurt you, right?
Agent Brody: Well, it’s already hurt me. That’s why I’m here. I’m glad you’re okay, Paige.
Paige: Thanks. Bye.
Agent Brody: Yeah.
[Scene: The Bay Mirror. Phoebe’s office. Les is there packing up his stuff. Phoebe walks in.]
Phoebe: Packing up?
Les: Yep, packing up. I left all your stuff in the bottom cabinet. I can put it back if you want.
Phoebe: No, that’s okay. I can do it. What time’s your flight?
Les: Noon. So you ready to come back?
Phoebe: More than you know. Thanks to you.
Les: Me? Well, I didn’t do anything. I just kept the seat warm for you.
Phoebe: You did more than that. And you know it. When I first met you, I was totally lost. That’s why I needed to get away from all of this, you know? I couldn’t give advice, especially not about love. And I realize that I was just afraid. But I’m not afraid anymore. (They kiss.) Thank you.
Les: You’re welcome. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be, huh? You and me.
Phoebe: Maybe not right now. But I do think our signs are compatible, so…
Les: See ya.
Phoebe: See ya.
[Scene: Magic School. Piper is waiting there. Leo walks in.]
Piper: Where were you? I was worried.
Leo: I was just checking on the boys.
Piper: We found the Possessor Demon right where you said he’d be.
Leo: Did you vanquish him?
Piper: No, uh, but some creature head thing did.
Leo: You saw him?
Piper: Yeah, we saw it. And I don’t think we’ve seen the last of it.
Leo: That’s what I’m worried about.
Piper: Come on. Let’s go home.
Leo: I can’t.
Piper: Well, the Elders said you were free to go.
Leo: It’s not the Elders I’m worried about, Piper. I’m worried about you. I’m worried about everybody. Look, the Elders were right, this new power was after me because I was vulnerable. You know, vulnerable enough to put my family at risk. Piper, you were almost killed because of me, because of what they did to me. I can’t let that happen. I won’t.
Piper: Leo, I know you’ve been though a lot. I do, but you fought so hard, and the boys need you. I need you.
Leo: It’s too dangerous. I have to stay away from you for your own sake. I’m sorry.
(Leo orbs out.)
