Charmed (2018) s01e10 Episode Script

Keep Calm and Harry On

1 Previously on Charmed [SCREAMING.]
It's you.
You're the Shadow Demon? Welcome to the Sisters of the Arcana.
You were gonna kill me? - [SCREAMING.]
LEON: Tartarus.
A hellish prison.
Little brother, you will pay for this.
It's where the bad guys send their bad guys.
Parker, stop.
The Portal to Tartarus! [YELLS.]
- Oh, my God.
Stay back! I'm gonna kill her! [SCREAMING CONTINUES.]
- You bloody thief.
You've robbed your last bank.
Aah! DRAGON EYE: That's how we break you in Tartarus.
We torture you with the memories that you most wish to forget.
You're gonna have to do better than a memory that's entirely fake.
The more you resist, the harder you'll fall.
I had a dream The Book of Shadows was useless.
We've been through every arcane and mystic text.
Hunter basically dragged Harry down into the Alcatraz of the underworld.
So, like Hell-catraz? - Not funny, Macy.
- Sorry.
I don't deal well with stress.
What did the Elders say? That it is unfortunate that you destroyed Marisol's piece of the Scythe of Tartarus.
The fact is, that scythe is the only known method to extract someone from Tartarus.
The Elders don't have any other ideas - how to help Harry, and - And what? And they are not particularly interested in pursuing the matter further.
Not for a Whitelighter.
So they're just going to leave Harry in Hell-catraz? It was Harry's choice to become a Whitelighter; he was well aware of the risks.
Remind me again how the Elders are the good guys? You're okay with just giving up and letting Harry rot? I am not giving up, I just Have no idea what to do.
But I will keep thinking, obviously.
In the meantime, we need you two to stay on mission.
That means you, Mel, get back to the Sarcana and find out who is murdering Elders.
Got it.
Thank you.
For you, Macy, that means figuring out what is going on at the lab.
As painful as the discovery that Parker is a demon was for your sister, it does reveal what's clearly a larger demonic plot connected to Morningstar Biotech.
Already on it.
Check this out.
It's a family operation.
Julia Wagner and Alistair Caine were married.
She's Parker's mom.
They're divorced now.
But still in business together.
Wonder if he pays her Hell-imony.
What? It's only okay when you do it? He looks familiar.
Nice work, Macy.
Anything else I should know about? Nope.
Not that I can think of.
- What was that all about? - It was Galvin.
- So what did he say? - That he's back and he's ready to talk.
I'm hoping that's not cover for burning me at the stake.
Uh, we should continue to not let Charity know he found out we're witches, and that he's walking around with an un-wiped memory, thanks to our Whitelighter being in Hell-catraz and all.
I'm starting to think that we should make a habit of that.
Keeping things from Charity.
I'm gonna go see the Sarcana.
But not because I think they killed Mom.
They broke somebody out of Tartarus.
They might be our only chance to save Harry.
I'm heading out.
Will you be all right? [SNIFFLES.]
It's been a week.
I think I'm all cried out.
- No, there's more.
- In my solitude This is all my fault.
Harry's in Hell-catraz because my freaking powers couldn't figure out my boyfriend was a demon.
The holidays are a fun time for everyone.
For the very thought of you Sorry.
I thought you might be ready for a little black humor.
How am I supposed to trust my powers again? How am I supposed to trust anyone? [SNIFFLES.]
I don't want to feel like this anymore.
I don't want to feel anything.
I know.
But you have to.
You can't push your feelings away.
Trust me, only when I let myself grieve Niko, I could finally let her go.
It's just so hard.
I know.
But you have to give yourself a break.
Now, as the train pulls west Its rhythm rocks the earth And to this unknown land We turn into the night [STONE CLINKS.]
Just a little break.
The great Khan leafs through maps We who struggle, break and bend, make us never hurt again.
And where am I to go? And what am I To find? From dark to blazing bright We thunder through ravines GALVIN: So let me get this straight.
You're a witch, and your sisters are witches, but not just any witches.
You're special.
And you sent someone to Hell-jail? And Harry, who's your "white person," went with him? [LAUGHS.]
Although both are technically correct.
- Yes.
I can't believe you're taking this so well.
You're not freaked out, like, a little bit? Well, I mean, the thing is, when I was growing up, my grandme was always talking about her religion.
Yoruba this, Yoruba that.
Witches and demons.
And she even said that she did a special spell on me when I was a baby to protect me from evil.
She did.
You had a protection mark.
What? I saw it on your side when you started dating Summer.
Remember? It's a long story.
I was worried it was demonic, but it's gone now.
The shape-shifter who was pretending to be me at Christmas got rid of it 'cause it was stopping him from entering the house.
I always thought my grandme was just superstitious, but now that I look back on it, there was a few things that happened I couldn't explain.
Speaking of which can you do it again? Yo, that is wild.
- No cap.
Okay, okay.
I c I can, I can handle this.
- I can handle this.
- Really? - Mm-hmm.
- 'Cause there is one more thing.
We are working for a demon.
Aw, sweetheart.
You're getting worse.
I wish you had gotten that amulet.
I stand by my decision, Mom.
I'd rather die a half-human than live as a demon.
I understand.
I just don't know if I can save you without it.
Look what we have here.
A touching mother-son moment.
- How revolting.
- What are you doing here, Alistair? Have you heard from your brother? He stole the amulet and took off.
He's not looking to be found.
A detail that still makes no sense, no matter how many times you say it.
Alistair, leave him alone.
He's not well, and we had an agreement.
You can't just show up here.
The laboratory's my domain.
I don't remember you complaining when I handed you this plum job.
You really should be thanking me.
I want you to thank me.
- Thank - [GRUNTS.]
Our settlement has very strict prohibitions against you mesmerizing me.
I'm gonna find Hunter.
We will see if he has a different tale to tell.
SARCANA: Shifa' on haza-aljesmo wa ruho.
This is what happens to people in Tartarus? They torture you down there, destroy your hope.
And you end up like this.
And she's a witch? A very important one, known as the Keeper of the Sacred Flame.
Just like your Whitelighter, she didn't belong in Tartarus.
It's the worst of the worst.
It's Hellflame, to power the incubator.
But we don't have enough to make her better.
I'm sorry the Elders are so heartless about saving your Whitelighter.
Not that I'm surprised.
They always have been cold and out of touch.
And in power for far too long.
But all that's gonna change.
What do you mean? Soon as we get more Hellflame, you'll see.
SARCANA: Shifa' on haza I'm gonna help you get your boy back.
A demon named Dante guards the nearest gateway to Tartarus.
I can show you where to find him, but you'll want to act soon.
If Tartarus is draining his will to live, Harry will end up like this.
And you may never get him back.
Another false memory? Come on! Do your worst.
- Watch it.
- Clear off.
I said watch it, pretty boy.
Looks like those memories are real after all, eh? Still think you're a hero, Whitelighter? Jada said the Sarcana didn't have anything worth trading with Dante, but Tartarus is the prison for the worst of the worst.
The demons other demons hate and fear.
And we've got one, right? The Harbinger.
He's got to be one of the ten most wanted for that place.
So you're saying we get Harbie from the Elders to trade for Harry? Yeah, what do you think? You've had worse ideas before; I just can't think of one right now.
Maggie, what is up with you? Nothing.
Your Harbie idea works.
- I got to go.
- PARKER: Maggie.
- Maggie, please.
- Go away.
I never wanted to hurt you.
- Look, you have to believe me.
- Don't touch me.
Never hurt again.
All clear.
Need some help? GALVIN: Damn.
Aw, man.
Any chance you came prepared for this? Have you met me? I keep a pair of sneakers lying around in case a zombie apocalypse breaks out while I'm at work.
Of course I came prepared for this.
Hey, Galvin.
Check out these gene sequences.
I don't see any Wait.
The protein structures are irregular.
- It's not - Human.
But these are.
I think she's turning human DNA into demon DNA.
Come on, come on, come on.
What the hell's going on? - I'm so sorry.
- So unprofessional.
It is.
This is a genetics lab, not a motel room.
Get the hell out of my office.
It'll never happen again.
- Got it.
: Yes! [BOTH LAUGH.]
Do you want to come over to my place? You mean like stay over? Yeah, yes.
Mm, there's something I should probably tell you first.
Oh, come on, it can't be any bigger - than telling me you're a witch.
- Yeah.
Yeah, no, you're right, um I'm a virgin.
MACY: He had a better reaction when I told him we work for a demon.
He was basically speechless.
And here I thought I was so lucky to start something with someone who accepted all of me.
He was probably just surprised.
I know we were when you told us.
Back me up on this, Maggie.
What is with you? Nothing.
Never better.
Seriously, you are all over the place.
Did you take one of Mom's old benzos again? You must be out of your charmed minds.
I take it you got my message.
You want to give a warden of Tartarus the Harbinger of Hell? If it's to get Harry back, yes.
Do you remember how hard it was to capture the Harbinger in the first place, and now you want to give it to demons? Don't even get me started about you talking to the Sarcana about Tartarus.
It's not like the Elders were helping.
The Elders will never allow this.
We do not negotiate with demons.
The Harbinger is a demon that belongs in jail.
We'd be taking it back to where it belongs.
And no one can open the can since you enchanted it.
We have to try.
For Harry.
If we don't get him out soon, we might lose him.
He could be changed forever.
I don't care what the Elders have to say.
Do you realize what you are asking me to do? Yes.
We've been through this with Angela.
Harry is worth saving, and I know you think so, too.
I didn't think she'd be this heartless.
Let's go get Harry.
DRAGON EYE: You're not worth saving, Harry.
You might as well just give in.
Hello? Dropping off or picking up? - Are you Dante? - I know who you are.
Charmed Ones.
We need Harry Greenwood.
And we can pay.
I've come across a gaggle of ladies just like you before.
Tried to offer me a measly ankh and lodestone to get someone out of Tartarus.
What if I told you we had the Harbinger of Hell? Look at that.
The Harbinger of Hell neutered in some dime-store paint can.
I always wanted to get my hands on that guy.
Don't just stand there.
Let me see it.
We need to be sure - that Harry's still - That he's okay.
- What is happening to him? - [HARRY GROANING.]
MEL: Quick, how do we get him out? With one of those? This ain't Club Fed there, Charmed One.
It takes a special kind of man to break someone out of Tartarus.
Well, do it.
We don't have much time.
Hold your horses there, sweets.
I don't buy the car without kicking the tires once or twice; it's just bad business.
Is this a trick? You won't be able to open it.
It's enchanted.
Wait, what? It's empty? No one swindles Dante and gets away with it.
Now you die.
What do we do? We have to break Harry out ourselves.
How do we do that? MACY: Get Dante to tell us how by reading his thoughts.
Follow my lead.
Maggie, seriously, what is wrong with you? Okay, Mel, come on.
Unfreeze time.
Maggie, go.
Read his thoughts.
Dante, how do we release - someone from Tartarus? - [DANTE CHUCKLES.]
Like I'd ever tell you.
MACY: Keep holding on, Maggie.
How do we release someone from Tartarus? - I'm not getting anything.
What? I don't think my powers are working.
Maggie, what did you do? I'm sorry, I didn't want to feel anymore.
I'll make you sorry! MEL/MACY: No! [SCREAMING.]
: Help! Help! Maggie Now, go get me the Harbinger, or you'll never see your sister again.
Go! CHARITY: Mel, I swear to you, I did not give you an empty vessel.
Oh, come on, you obviously didn't trust us - with the real thing.
- That is not what happened.
I figured out what's wrong with Maggie.
She took her pain away with a spell.
These are habit-forming and have serious side effects.
Like her powers not working? Guess she didn't read the fine print.
- Her powers aren't working? - MEL: Yes.
And now she's stuck in Tartarus, so we need to get her out.
Where is the real Harbinger? Mel, I have no idea.
This does not make any sense.
After the exorcism, that paint can was in my possession at all times.
Oh, no.
What? Alistair Caine.
That's why he looked familiar.
Would you mind switching paint cans with me? Pleasure doing business with you.
He must have mesmerized me and switched paint cans.
No one has ever been able to mesmerize me before.
We are dealing with a very powerful demon.
Who now has the Harbinger.
So what are we supposed to do? We use our personal connection.
Yes, my dad is the demon Alastor.
Also known as the Dark Master.
Also known as the dick who stole the Harbinger.
I get it.
The demonic apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
We don't have time for name-calling.
Maggie's in trouble.
Which is the only reason I'd ever set foot in a frat house that smells of stale beer and white privilege.
You say you want to help Maggie.
I'll do anything.
Tell us where the Harbinger is.
My dad has him.
I've seen the paint can in his study.
- Great.
So, let's go to his study.
- Okay.
There's no way you can get in there.
I'll get it for you.
- No way, we're getting it.
- You can't.
- Not without me.
- You expect us to trust you? What other choice do you have? You know what, he's right.
You saw what's happening to Harry.
Maggie's being tormented down there, too, and as soon as that numbing spell wears off, she's going to feel everything.
You okay there, Cinderella? Can I take you out on a proper date? - It's you.
You're the Shadow Demon? - Let me explain.
DRAGON EYE: Scream all you want, Charmed One.
I'm under strict orders to give you a hell of a hard time.
- Help me! - [WHIMPERS.]
I feel so lucky to be the mother of two special young women.
: No! Mom, help me! [CRYING.]
Get me out of here! Anyone, please.
Harry! - Harry! - Maggie? - [GASPS.]
- Harry? - Maggie, is that you? - Harry? Please, Harry, I can't take it anymore.
But you have to hold on.
I-I can't.
I'm so tired of all of it.
I know, but you mustn't give up hope.
I did a spell to numb my pain, and now it's all coming back.
Oh, no, Maggie Everything hurts too much.
No, no, that's how they break you, Maggie.
: Please HARRY: Listen to me.
You have to fight it.
Let love be your strength.
I loved Parker.
All it did was hurt me.
Then gain strength from me.
And know you'll never be alone.
Let me take her pain.
Give me the memory instead! - Come on, you overgrown lizard.
Torture me.
I dare you.
Be careful what you ask for.
DOCTOR: I'm sorry, there's nothing more we can do to save your son.
It's my fault.
- HARRY: No.
Harry! Harry? [COUGHING.]
Are you all right? [COUGHS.]
Wait here.
I need to shut the surveillance off.
It's in there.
- In where? - In here.
Let's get out of here.
Good evening, Julia.
You're gonna tell me what really happened to Hunter.
Looking for this? Tell me what happened to Hunter.
Parker banished Hunter to Tartarus because he's in love with Maggie.
That's the Harbinger, all right.
Back to Tartarus, where you belong.
Not so fast.
- We want Harry and our sister first.
- DANTE: Fine.
I can't promise they'll be in mint condition, though.
MACY: Maggie, Harry.
Are you all right? We need to get him out of here.
Good evening, everyone.
You have something that belongs to me.
First of all, that is mine.
Secondly, it's come to my attention that my son, Hunter, is rotting in your prison.
- Parker sold us out.
- What? - I don't just open the gate - Silence! I'll deal with your insubordination later.
Oh, where are my manners? I'm Alistair Caine.
Charmed, I'm sure.
But, of course, we have already met.
Stay back, demon.
You know, Dr.
Vaughn, most companies would consider that a "fireable" offense.
But, luckily for you, I'm just a big softie.
If you think I'm going to spend one more day working for you in that lab, turning humans into demons You are out of your mind.
Oh, and you must be Mel, the time-witch I heard so much about.
From your backstabbing frat boy spawn? Is that any way to talk about the love of your sister's life? Hey, Mags.
I'm so sorry about the breakup.
Can we please kill him now? Oh, I would love to see you try, empath.
Do you know what they say about a witch with passive powers, hmm? That's right.
Now, Dante, if you don't mind, I think it is time to release my son.
MEL: No.
It's not.
Oh, you dumb witches.
You dare think you have the power to hold sway over me, Alastor, the Dark Master, Viscount of the Malebranche, Executioner [GROANS.]
Put a pin in it, Daenerys.
Enough small talk.
I can't even do anything with my stupid passive powers! [CRIES OUT.]
HARRY: Let love be your strength.
Screw you and your demon family.
No one messes with my sisters or my Whitelighter.
Give me your hands.
Maggie, how are you doing this? MAGGIE: I'm not.
We are.
We're doing this.
No, this isn't possible.
Keep going.
MEL: He got away.
What happened to you down there? Life laid What a mess.
Walked with a ghost I never thought that I'd say this, but I really missed you, Harry.
Well, thank you, Melanie.
I just wish we could've vanquished Alistair before he got away.
What was that, Maggie? Some new spell? I don't know.
It came to me when I read what you were thinking: "Let love be your strength.
" I knew if I could reach you guys, I could just Channel this thing between us.
You just created a spell.
Do you realize that? Through the fire [COUGHING.]
Oh, he's in bad shape.
Let's get him home.
From the ashes, we get all our second chances You feeling okay, Mags? I'm feeling.
I can't believe I tried to take my feelings away.
I mean, what was I thinking? MACY: You were heartbroken.
It's understandable.
Well, it's nice to know I can trust my powers again.
I just wish I could trust certain other things.
After everything Parker said, I can't believe he'd sell us out to his dad like that all over again.
I know.
I was actually starting to think he might not be that bad.
For a half-demon.
Can you imagine growing up with a dad like that? I mean, my dad was moody.
But Parker's dad can rip off his entire face.
The worst part is, I can't stop thinking about him.
Where is he? MEL: Just so we're clear, the Elders have no right to portal in here and pretend they give a damn about Harry.
Not after they left him down there to rot.
Mel, that is the Sarcana talking.
It's me.
If you just came over to lecture us on the rules of magic and the proper way to conduct ourselves, you can leave.
But If you really do care about Harry, and you came here to comfort him, then here's his tea.
Made just the way he likes it.
And I'm the white Because that's what you do when someone you love is hurting.
You're the left hand, I'm the right And all I know Is you feel like home Harry? What happened? And I'm the stage I found out who I really was.
Whatever they showed you in Tartarus, it is not the full picture.
They were torturing you.
Playing mind games.
I was a common criminal, and I caused the death of my only child.
Someday soon I was a wreck.
I had to know what memories they'd use to torture you, so I reviewed the memories we took from you.
You saw my memories? I'll be there But that's a major rule violation.
You could lose your Elder status.
Yes, you had a past.
But everything you did, you did to save your dying son.
But he died anyway.
He lived.
You saved him.
Don't look so surprised.
The same qualities that make you a great Whitelighter now are what made you a wonderful father back then.
And, Harry, he's still alive.
Why are you telling me all this? 'Cause that is what you do for someone you love.
You're the wine And I'm a traveler And you're the front porch light Yeah, all I know Is you feel like home The only thing I know I just wanted to make sure you were okay.
So you can sell us out to your dad again? What? I don't know what happened, but I was doing this to help you, Maggie.
Please don't hate me.
: Why do you have to be like this? If I didn't have to be, I wouldn't.
You don't know what it's like to hate a part of yourself.
Oh, time How am I ever supposed to believe you again? You made me not want to feel.
And you made me want to feel.
Parker, I can't do this right now.
Oh, that feeling Please go.
Stealing time Broken glass won't fit the way we like My dad's leaving town, by the way.
Whatever you and your sisters did, I've never seen him run scared before.
Who am I to let you down? Why'd you call me here? Business or pleasure? Where did you get that? It doesn't matter.
The Elders are only looking out for themselves.
I am done playing by their pointless rules.
For the Keeper.
This is a lot of firepower to give to someone you barely know.
I trust you.
Why? Words are cheap.
And you let your actions do the talking.
Sometimes my actions say the wrong things.
You want to get out of here? Mm-hmm.
Don't stop what you're doing, doing, doing.
- Macy, I-I need to tell you something.
- Before you do, I thought about it, and it's fine.
The whole virginity thing threw you for a loop, and I get it.
It's unusual.
Come-come on in.
Thanks for being so real about this whole thing.
But, yeah, I was still trying to wrap my mind around you being a witch who fights demons and then Hell portals was a thing, so When you said that last part, it was pretty much the virgin that broke the camel's back.
I'm sorry.
You don't have anything to apologize for.
'Cause when you didn't respond to my texts, I panicked.
Because I-I'm totally okay with what you do or-or don't do with your own body.
Sorry, I must have been breaking Harry out of demon jail.
Ah, right.
'Cause that's a thing you do.
That is a thing I do.
Look just because I'm a virgin now doesn't mean I'll stay one forever.
That's good to know.
But that's not what I came over here for.
I was looking through those files we took from Dr.
Julia, and I found this.
She was sequencing your DNA.
Your sisters', too.
This can't be right.
What? What is it? [STAMMERS.]
I'm the half sister.
I only share a mother with Mel and Maggie, but this says they share 23% of their DNA, while Maggie and I share 52.
That's impossible.
Unless They don't share a father.
Maggie and I do.
