02x14 - Sudden Death

Previously on Charmed Parker!

Please.

You're better than this.

[GRUNTS]

MAGGIE: What did you do?

MACY: Parker.

You're alive.

Vivienne Laurent.

Aunt Vivienne?

You're all Julian can talk about lately.

My aunt Vivienne is always helping some charity or serving on the board of a Fortune 500 company.

GUARDIAN: The Power of Three has come to sisters of great promise.

It always ends the same.

The destruction of the sisterhood.

To breaking the cycle.

MACY: Your powers.

They're back.

HARRY: Darklighters can't kill Whitelighters?

And Whitelighters can't kill darklighters.

You aren't taking magical creatures, you're taking their magic.

It's not me.

It's them.

I want out.

Why would I ever help you?

Because I know what's coming.

But if you want any chance of stopping it, you're gonna have to set me free.

HARRY [QUIETLY]

: Jimmy Jimmy.

Where are you?

[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING]

DIRTY HARRY: Harry.

I'm in trouble.

I need your help.

[VOICES SCREAMING]

Did someone bring out the sage?

Oh, it's on the porch.

Incoming!

[PANTING, GASPING]

Oh Sorry.

Sorry about that.

Uh, I-I guess my powers are still A work in progress.

[CHUCKLES]

Appreciate the save.

I saved you from a shiner, an ice pack and a bunch of those little cartoon stars.

Okay, who is ready to restore the awesome Power of Three?

Let's do this.

[EXHALES]

ALL: Restitue potentiam trium.

Restitue potentiam trium.

Restitue potentiam trium.

We're going backwards.

It's her.

Abigael.

When she stripped Macy's demon power, she did something to block us.

We don't know that for sure.

M-Maybe it's for the best.

The Power of Three always ends in the destruction of the sisterhood.

No.

We're different.

We defeated the Source of All Evil, we fought against the darklighter, we saved Jordan from his curse.

We're not gonna get done in by some old prophecy.

Which is probably what the other sisters said.

Look, I'm not sure we have a choice here.

If these people are extracting magical powers, it's only a matter of time before they the send the darklighter after us again.

HARRY: He's not coming.

For us, or anyone.

I-I think he's in danger.

But that means You're in danger.

He dies, I die.

Simple as that.

My darklighter, he was desperate.

Telling me we had to work together.

Then he just went silent.

I tried contacting him.

He's just gone.

Did you see anything?

In the mind space?

A flash of something.

A dead body and some strange number.

- I have no idea what any of it meant.

- MEL: Okay, so we retrace his steps, go everywhere we know he's been, hope to find a lead.

MAGGIE: And if we don't find him?

Well, we have to find a way to cut the cord.

Well, think about it.

The Elders found a way to sever their connection to you.

There has to be a way to do the same with White and darklighters.

Hey.

We're clear.

Descubre el Camino secreto.

MEL: Okay, uh, we'll split up.

Harry and I will find his darklighter.

Maggie and I will scour The Book of Elders, find a severing spell.

Anything to uncouple you and the darklighter.

You're not gonna die, Harry.

We won't let that happen.

In my experience, death is not something one can will away.

MACY: Harry.

We'll see you soon.

That look between the two of you.

Okay, I'm just gonna ask: where were things left between you and Harry?

They weren't.

Left anywhere.

I I don't know where he stands.

And you?

Where do you stand?

With him and with Julian?

I I stand Right here.

Look.

Here.

This spell splits a human's consciousness from their psyche.

I think the Elders might have used this as the basis for the Whitelighter's memory wipe.

Okay, and that helps us how?

Doesn't directly, but maybe we could adapt it, try and use it to split the connection between White and darklighters.

Okay, well, I see one major problem with your plan.

I think this spell requires the Power of Three.

Which we don't have.

Which it's about time we got back.

Don't you think?

This is it, where the darklighter was keeping all of those creatures.

[GROWLS]

[SCREECHING]

Well, he's gone and so are they.

They've gone underground.

We've been to his apartment, Schmitty's bar.

No one's seen him.

We're at a dead end, Harry.

Mel, in the event that something should happen to me, - I need you to - Nothing is going to happen.

We need to be realistic.

This is like me having a Widowmaker heart.

At any moment, I could take a breath, never to take another.

So, please, let me just say this.

You need to forgive your mistakes.

You're a born leader, but you're harder on yourself than anyone.

- Harry - Tell Maggie to trust her powers.

She has more than she thinks.

Well, more than she knows.

And Macy Tell Macy - Harry.

- I We are going to figure this out, and then you can tell Macy whatever yourself.

MACY: You're going to see Abigael?

[CHUCKLES]

No.

No way.

We need the Power of Three for this spell and if she did something to block us Uh That's a big if.

Well, do you have any better theories?

Didn't think so.

So I'm gonna find the knife, the one she used on you, we'll do a provenance spell on it, see exactly what she did to you and then reverse it.

And you think you're just gonna find it in her apartment?

Well, you said she had a bunch of hidden compartments.

A weapon that strips demons of their power?

She's gonna keep that close.

[SIGHS]

And we are out of mugwort.

[MUTTERS SOFTLY]

Hey, Mags, t-this is just about the knife, right?

Yeah, as opposed to?

A certain someone in her dungeon?

What?

Parker?

Of course not.

Because you can't tell her you know he's alive.

Our truce with Abigael and the demons require - we keep that secret.

- Got it.

Well, while you figure out a way to save Harry, I'm off to steal a knife from Evildemon Hornypants.

There were 50 pods here.

Computers.

It's like they were in a hurry to get everything out of here.

[STEADY BEEPING]

Well, maybe not everything.

It's coming from over there.

Looks like an operating suite.

They were experimenting.

Okay, but on what?

Or whom?

Do you think they were experimenting on your darklighter?

It's possible.

[SNIFFS]

You smell that?

Ugh.

I wish I hadn't.

- It's this vat.

- Uh, Harry, maybe we shouldn't.

[BOTH COUGHING]

- Oh, God.

- Ugh.

What-what is it?

What that is Is death.

- Here you go.

Have a great day.

- Maggie?

Oh.

Hey, Jordan.

Hi.

Uh, Wicca shop reopened?

Yup.

Yeah, uh, Kat asked Mel to find someone to manage it.

- You avoiding me?

- What?

No.

No, I'm not No.

[SCOFFS]

You sure?' Cause we haven't really talked since our mission.

Yeah, about that, um I get it, Maggie.

We had a moment.

It's cool.

I'm cool.

Yeah, I just I have a lot going on in my world right now, and I don't really have time for moments.

I know.

I'm just offering to help.

Every time you offer to help, - you almost get killed.

- And if I don't help balance the scales of justice, I get killed, so I'd rather risk it for you and your sisters.

Are you ever a jerk?

Like, ever?

Hell, yeah.

When people steal my first aid kits.

Or punch me in the nose.

Come to think of it, Mel's the only one who's still totally clean.

Oh, give her time.

[CHUCKLES]

Whatever you're doing, let me come with, for both our sakes.

MACY: Experiment to sever the connection between White and darklighters using hair samples from both Helens.

Nexum in aeternum divide.

[SIGHS]

Exstingue.

Let's, uh, let's try this again.

Nexum in aeternum divide.

Exstingue.

Nexum in aeternum divide.

Exstingue.

MEL: Ugh!

Is that a lycanthrope?

Uh - And the tentacle?

- Maybe a hedorah?

Though I was pretty sure they were extinct.

And the horn?

Enenra.

They have two forms.

One is scales and horns, the other smoke.

You said there was a computer with a list of what they'd captured.

Were hedorah or enenra on the list?

I don't remember, and we let those creatures go.

Well, clearly, they found more.

We know they're extracting magic.

Let's say they succeeded, from the lycanthrope, the hedorah - And the enenra.

- They take that magic and what?

We need to know what happened here.

[CELL PHONE BUZZING]

Hey-hey there.

JULIAN [OVER PHONE]

: Okay, so I have a yen for ramen, and there's a place up on West Pine where the chef owes me a favor.

Uh, technically she owes me the entire restaurant because I own it, but I-I would love to go, but I-I can't.

I'm, uh I'm on a deadline.

Really?

'Cause, I mean, it looks to me like you're just separating an egg.

Uh, you're back From, uh, Paris?

Barcelona, but yes.

Hey, you know, if you, if you didn't want to see me No, no, it's-it's not that.

I'm just I'm just, I'm stuck on an experiment.

An "eggsperiment"?

It was there, so I took it, - so I - Mm-hmm.

[BOTH CHUCKLE]

It's-it's my friend, the one I had to borrow the Airmid machine for.

He's really sick.

Life and death.

I'm sorry.

Bell's inequality theorem?

Yeah, I'm-I'm exploring genetics vis-Ã -vis quantum entanglement.

When disparate particles are so intertwined that any action performed on one affects the other.

- You-you know quantum mechanics?

- Mm.

I could use your help.

You know, your coming here compromises me.

Makes it look like we're in bed together.

Though there might be some merit in that.

Um, I asked her to bring me here.

I've been cursed by the dying breath of a witch.

And this involves me how?

He has to balance the scales of justice, but we don't know what that means.

If he doesn't succeed, his descendants will be cursed and his life will forever be In danger.

I like a good challenge.

Always a thrill succeeding where the Charmed Ones fail.

[CELL PHONE BUZZES]

Um Text from Mel.

She says it's an emergency.

Is there some place I can take this?

A little privacy, of course.

Tori.

Keep an eye on our friend.

Don't want her snooping around.

Thought she'd never leave.

Now let's see if we can't get to the bottom of this Curse.

[GULPS]

Revela su procedencia.

This will show us what happened here.

- Thought we'd get more of a reaction.

- [SHOUTS]

- Sedatives, quick!

- Yes!

[GROWLING]

No.

No.

No.

No, please.

No!

[CELL PHONE DIALING]

We need help!

[SCREAMS]

What the hell was that?

What about quantum sudden death?

- Here you go.

- Thank you.

I thought about that, but it would decay both particles.

I need to sever the connection without killing either subject.

Which are?

Mental metaphor, um, imagine he's got sick cells Let's call them dark cells And healthy, light cells.

I need to disconnect their fates.

I thought about disrupting the environment using quantum teleportation What?

No, it's just, the way you think, the questions that you're asking about unseen forces that control the universe.

You know, this-this may not be the right time, um, but I'm on the board of a foundation that's working on malaria abatement, and we just lost our lead epidemiologist to another project, and I don't know, I-I was just wondering if maybe you would consider, um, like, consulting?

You-you want me to work for you?

Not for me, but with me.

TORI: Hey.

What are you doing?

Sorry, just quick hydration for the skin.

And you need to do that now?

Never underestimate the power of skin care.

[WHISPERING]

: Finge cor.

Muta Mentem.

Alia Eventa Mihi.

Shape the heart, change the mind, give me results of a different kind.

[GRUNTS SOFTLY]

[LAUGHS SOFTLY]

[REGULAR VOLUME] : Hey, Tori.

Why don't you show me where your Overlord keeps her weapons?

They're in the dungeon.

Like, where the prisoners are kept?

Yes.

Of course they are.

MEL: That monster.

Have you ever seen anything like that?

Something that can turn to smoke, spit acid, change form?

There isn't a single creature with all those powers.

The husks.

The enenra can turn to smoke, the hedorah can spit acid - and the lycanthrope - Can change form.

Put them together and you get some sort of monstrosity.

But it'd still need a host to contain all that magic.

Your darklighter.

Perhaps.

Found it.

That's an old-fashioned burner.

- [PHONE BEEPS]

- Huh.

That doctor.

The last call she made before she was killed.

Someone in Duluth, Minnesota.

Daunting, living with that sword of Damocles over your head.

I mean, what's to stop me from killing you right now?

That's, uh that's rhetorical, right?

Suppose I could help you with your curse give you a foolproof way of balancing the scales of justice.

What would that look like?

There are witches out there seen as threats by demons.

Now, I can't help them, per Se.

The optics could be damaging, to say the least.

But if you, however, can rescue them, your debts will be paid.

How do you know this will work?

I've done my homework.

I always do.

Now if you want the names of those witches, you're gonna have to tell me why you're really here.

Like we said, to get help.

Oh, Jordy.

Come on.

I could put my hand on your head and yank it out of your consciousness, but that's such an unsporting way to deal with a human.

The "woe is me" curse business, the fake text from Mel, the scurrying to places unknown?

Oh, how sad.

Oh, she's brought her new flame here to try and rescue her old one.

Now, I like you, Jordan.

You smell sweet and you have nice eyes.

I can think of a lot of ways that you could be utile to me, but Maggie made the mistake of telling you Parker is alive, and I won't have people knowing that.

Parker is alive?

[QUIETLY] : Just get in and get out.

[GROANS]

You've got to be kidding me.

Okay, demon-stripping dagger, which one are you?

- [SIGHS]

- PARKER: Hey, Vera.

Parker.

[INDISTINCT CONVERSATION]

This is where the call came from?

According to Ray's cop friend Choochi.

He did something with cell tower tracking.

Not that I think that we should trust somebody who goes by the name Choochi [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING]


DIRTY HARRY: I'm in trouble.

Mel.

That's what I saw, in the mind space.

My darklighter.

I think he's in there, somewhere.

Julian, it's a really incredible, uh, o-opportunity But?

Now is not the right time.

Okay.

Why do I get the feeling you're not telling me something?

WOMAN: Mr.

Shea?

Meghan.

- Thank Pierre for me.

- Will do.

[GRUNTS SOFTLY]

What's this?

This is food.

From this French pop-up that my buddy owns.

So, here's the thing.

[CLEARS THROAT]

When I get stuck, I eat.

The secret is in the ganache.

They emulsify the chocolate and the cream together, and voilà .

Emulsion.

Maybe that's the answer.

Wait, did my dessert thing actually work?

Revelation.

Thank you.

[LAUGHS]

Thank you for helping.

Uh, thank you for the job offer, for-for everything.

I'm sorr I PARKER: Can we just talk?

There's nothing to say.

Well, then, let me explain.

I don't have time, Parker, and honestly, I I don't care.

Look, I'm sorry for everything that happened.

Stop!

Really.

I cannot do this with you right now.

And I'm-I'm not here for you.

Maggie, that wasn't me.

Yes, it was you.

It was part of you.

The part of you that is never going to change.

[EXHALES]

What are you looking for?

Please, just Let me at least help you.

The ritual dagger.

The one used for stripping demons of their powers.

The second pipe from the left.

Eye level.

There's a hidden compartment.

[SIGHS]

So glad you two could catch up.

[WHOOSH]

WOMAN: All right.

Let's unload this.

[INDISTINCT CONVERSATION]

MAN: Let's put it in lockdown.

Checklist.

MAN 2: One more.

Roger that.

[BEEPS]

AUTOMATED VOICE: Lockdown initiated.

[WHIRRING, HEAVY CLICKING]

The number I saw in the mind space.

W2.

West side, floor two.

We need to work fast.

Come on.

That's it.

The door in my vision.

[GRUNTS]

Something's preventing me from getting inside.

Allow me.

Where's Jordan?

What did you do with him?

I set him ablaze and served him to the guards as an amuse-bouche.

Way to use the influencer spell.

Only problem is it wears off.

This was all my plan.

- Leave Jordan out of it.

- JORDAN: No.

I'm the one who thought we could distract you - with my curse.

- Oh, look at you two trying to protect one another.

So cute.

Don't they make the sweetest couple, Parker?

Let them go, Abby.

Little bro still trying to play the hero.

Shall I break the news to him, or you?

You really were the dupe, my friend.

She used you to try and get this dagger so she could strip all the nasty demony parts out of Parky-Poo, and the two of them could run off together as witch and human.

Right, Magdalena?

Is that true?

No.

Then why else would you want this dagger?

Because when you took Macy's demon powers away with that knife, you took something else with it.

Something that's blocking the Power of Three, and I want it back.

Oh, so that's what this is all about?

Go on, then.

Do your little provenance spell, or whatever other nonsense you had in mind.

You won't find anything.

Because I didn't do anything to Macy.

It's not me.

Which means The Power of Three problem is you.

The lot of you.

I guess the sisterhood has some issues to work out.

Now, after you've finished examining that dagger to your satisfaction, feel free to take your luggage and get out.

PARKER: Hey, Jordan.

Take care of her.

She can take care of herself.

[POWER SURGING]

- [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING]

- Ah [FAINT VOICE]

: Harry Harry [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING CRESCENDOS]

[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING CONTINUES]

Harry help.

Help.

[RINGING STOPS ABRUPTLY]

Oh, God.

[POWER SURGING]

Mel, stop!

I found him.

They put him back in the jar.

Okay, but if he's in there [POUNDING ON DOOR]

What's behind that door?

[POUNDING CONTINUES]

[BOTH CRY OUT]

[LOUD SNARLING]

Harry The jar.

- [GASPS]

- Oh HARRY: What's he doing?

- [HIGH-PITCHED RINGING]

- [PAINED GROANS]

No.

Ah!

[PANTING]

That was close.

Thank you for risking your life again to help me.

I-I'm sorry I didn't tell you he was alive.

I just I was sworn to secrecy, I No, Maggie, I don't care about that.

I care about you.

You all right?

I'm-I'm fine.

really.

If some piece of you went back there for him, it's okay.

I didn't.

You know, when I thought he was dead, at least there was closure.

But now it's like The wound is reopened?

The last few months have been a lot.

And I've been trying to put on a brave face and act like I'm all right, but Trauma Takes time.

So you take yours.

Whatever you need.

I need to figure out what's blocking me and my sisters.

You will.

Hey You're alive.

So are you.

The host.

The corpse.

[POWER SURGING]

The one they brought back to life.

They're reanimating the dead.

Giving them magic.

To what end?

MACY: Well, did you get any answers?

No, just, uh, more questions.

How about you?

Did you, uh, figure out a way to sever Harry from his darklighter?

No.

I don't think it can be done.

Okay, well, what's this?

Emulsion.

Taking two separate compounds and turning them into one stable mixture.

Watch.

Duo colligentur.

[RUMBLING]

I couldn't separate Whitelighters and darklighters.

But I might be able to put them back together.

MACY: How are you?

It's strange.

All this time in fear of him, running.

And now we're protecting him.

Did you find anything out about severing the two of us?

I don't think it can be done.

But you did figure out something else.

I'm not recommending it but it's your life, so you should know.

There may be a way to put you and him Back together.

Merge us?

We-We'd need the talisman to get him back out of the bottle and, uh Since someone's still controlling him.

But if we merged, I'd control him.

We don't really know who'd be in control, Harry.

It's a It's a very dangerous proposition.

I never even thought I'd get a chance to be whole again, or what that even looks like.

You know, obviously, it's your choice, your journey, but, um, I wouldn't want to risk losing you.

When all your demons come This you.

Macy, this journey I'm on has caused me to feel things, do things that are foreign and terrifying, and I fear have diminished me in your eyes.

I feel you now I can feel you And if today turned out differently, if this were my last day, the loss of our friendship would be my greatest regret.

Don't cry, my dear What can I do to get my friend back?

We've only got so much time here You just did it.

I worry about you at night.

Running into Parker I'm sorry you had to go through that.

Yeah.

It was a lot.

And the whole Power of Three thing.

It's not Abigael who's holding us back.

It's us.

Well, whatever the issue is, we need to figure it out, fast.

'Cause I think what I saw today is the tip of the iceberg.

I'm afraid that there are more monsters out there, And they're coming for us.

[INDISTINCT LOW CHATTER]

I'll keep this brief.

We experienced a breach this afternoon at our site in Duluth.

Nothing to worry about.

We still have the upper hand.

Magic Is threatening our very existence.

And it's up to us to stop it.

Only we can save the world.
