Charmed (2018) s01e17 Episode Script


1 Previously on Charmed MAGGIE: You really think your dad did this to you? It's a demonic infection, and only he can cure it.
You remember Fiona? The charge I lost.
Losing her made me who I am.
I suppose that's why I was given the honor of serving alongside you three.
Charity killed our mother.
You haven't changed.
You're alive? [PANTING] WOMAN: Okay, okay, okay, I'm coming.
Help me.
Harry Greenwood.
- Yes? - You are charged with having an unsanctioned relationship with Elder Callahan, and reckless endangerment of the Charmed Ones.
Can you defend what you've done? Serving the Charmed Ones is my greatest honor.
It was never my intention to fail them in any way.
Due to the serious breach of trust that led to your impaired judgment, Mr.
Greenwood, we simply cannot let you continue as a Whitelighter.
The rules exist for good reason, Mr.
Charity Callahan has been banished to Tartarus.
And you, too, must face consequences.
By vote of the Elder Council [CHANTING]: Ita factum est.
Ita factum est.
Ita factum est.
We hereby strip you of your powers.
Wait, I beg you.
The sisters are my [INAUDIBLE] [HIGH-PITCHED CHIME] [GASPING] MAGGIE: I really hope Harry's okay, you guys.
Every bite of dry cereal is a reminder that he's just Gone.
Maggie, he's not gone.
He just warned us that we might not hear from him for a few days.
Now, I know I'm no Harry, but These are his recipe.
I mean, even the Elders have to realize that what Charity did is not Harry's fault.
I mean, she was right under our noses, and we didn't see she was Mom's killer.
Yeah, but we weren't doing it like she and Harry were.
Sorry, I mean, at least you knew not to trust her.
We were the ones who kept telling you to ease up.
I know, I just wish we could help him.
The Elders and their whole "don't call us, we'll call you" thing is totally messed up.
Galvin? - Still nothing.
- MAGGIE: I'm sure whatever jungle pit or volcano he's in just doesn't have cell service.
Volcano? Maggie.
That is not helping my nerves.
He just stopped texting back so abruptly.
Maybe his grandmother was right, and his whole mission to save me from my demon side was too dangerous.
Well, no news is usually good news.
At least that's what I'm hoping.
Julia's supposed to tell me as soon as Parker's out of quarantine.
If he doesn't get better soon No, you know what? I am manifesting positivity.
Parker will be saved, and so will Galvin.
It's Niko, wondering if we can talk.
- I don't know - You're supposed - to let her go.
- - Mel.
- Come on.
Niko's engaged.
And she knows I'm with Jada.
But she's also investigating the Sarcana, so if she's digging into something, it's better if I know about it.
- - The plot thickens.
There is no plot.
Well, then, why were you thinking about her - having the softest lips you've ever - [GASPS] Boundaries.
Come on.
[KNOCKING ON DOOR] Hi, you must be Mel.
- Greta.
- [CHUCKLES] Nice to meet you.
I've heard so much about you.
They're back here.
Niko's hoping you can shed some light on the situation.
This is Scarlet.
Mel, thanks for coming.
Scarlet, can you tell Mel what you told us? Um, it's all such a blur.
I remember woods.
The color blue.
We all didn't want to be there, but we all didn't want to leave.
The word "surrender.
" MAN: Surrender.
SCARLET: The last thing I remember from the real world was reading some sappy poetry at the student union about me and my boyfriend breaking up.
I couldn't stop crying.
MAN: Surrender.
Niko and I pieced it together and that happened over a month ago.
I can't believe I lost a whole month.
NIKO: Don't worry.
The memories will come, or they won't.
We're here to help you either way.
Okay? Okay, why don't you go lie down? I saw Scarlet at the grocery store last week with a group of other women.
They were all glassy-eyed, like they'd been drugged.
Though Scarlet seemed less out of it than the rest.
She's a long distance runner, so maybe she metabolized the drugs faster? Anyway, I gave 'em my card.
Didn't hear for a couple days.
I checked in on the boyfriend, but they broke up because he moved to Wisconsin and his alibi checks out.
I feel for her, but, I'm sorry, why am I here? I'm wondering if the cult she escaped from is affiliated with the Sarcana.
The Sarcana are not a cult.
Yeah, so you said, but you haven't explained exactly what it is.
We're a women's empowerment group.
And we don't want anybody who doesn't want to be there.
That mark on Scarlet's hand, it looks like an "S," wouldn't you say? I'm making Earl Grey.
Anyone want some? Sure, thanks, honey.
[WHISPERS]: You hate Earl Grey.
What? You know what? Never mind, I got to go.
I'm sorry I can't help you.
Goddess Roxy, join me.
Scarlet was your friend, was she not? [WHIMPERING]: Mm-hmm.
How many people do I need for my ceremony tomorrow? Ten goddess prefects to serve Viralis, so that he may be forever blessed.
Where is Scarlet, Roxy? I, I don't know.
Where is she?! Where am I? What is this? No! No, I don't want that! What are we doing here? Run! [SHOUTS] [SCREAMS] Stupid girl! Now I need another one! Why was Roxy punished?! WOMEN: She's a traitor.
[CHANTING]: Traitor.
- Traitor.
- Traitor.
Bring me my Goddess Scarlet! Kill whoever stands in your way.
Go! I don't understand.
If I wear gloves and a mask or something, why can't I see him? When Parker had this before, he lost control during a seizure and nearly killed me.
That's when Alistair finally convinced me to allow Parker to be injected with his blood.
That's what saved him.
I know, but Parker won't go to Alistair.
No, the transfusion of Alistair's blood is what activated Parker's demon side.
There's a reason why they warn you about the bad boys.
Did you know he was a demon when you met? [LAUGHS SOFTLY] No.
No, I thought he was a charismatic millionaire and I was just a nerdy post-doc.
Next thing I know, I was living in a real-life Rosemary's Baby.
What about Macy's blood? No, it has to be full demon.
So, if I get another demon's blood, would that cure Parker's infection? There are a whole lot of unknowns.
And it would wipe out any progress we've made building up Parker's human side.
But once the infection is gone, you can use your serum to bring back his human side, right? Theoretically, yes.
[PHONE CHIMES] I got to go.
[SIGHS] Anyone seen any demons? Turns out, I need one to save Parker's life.
You two look like you've seen a ghost.
[GASPS] Hello, Maggie.
Harry? Harry, no! What happened? Hold on I've been stripped of my powers.
My body is in the process of deteriorating to what would be its human age.
Hold on And given the average life expectancy, I-I'm I'm afraid Oh, Maggie.
Oh please.
I haven't gone yet.
I may not have my powers, but I do have permission to offer you ladies advice until - a new Whitelighter is found.
- A new Whitelighter? We don't want a new Whitelighter.
We want you.
Well, I know I've lived a long life when Melanie Vera is clamoring for my counsel.
Don't joke, Harry.
This is serious.
There must be something we can do.
Find acceptance.
Not our strong suit.
My clouded judgment compromised your lives and your mission.
Listen to me.
You three are my legacy.
And I couldn't be prouder.
I am at peace knowing you will not falter in your mission to fight evil.
And, Mel, if, uh, your path were to cross with Fiona I'd like to see her before, uh Now I'm off to rest.
If you need me, I'll offer what I can in the time I have left.
[SIGHS] He was wearing his old man lapel pin.
[SNIFFLES] Pretty sure he once told me he wanted to be buried in that.
What are we gonna do? We don't surrender.
[SCREAMING] NIKO: Scarlet! Are you okay? [GASPS] Who are you? [GRUNTS] Hey, glad you're here.
It's happening today.
We're preparing the Keeper to take on her new powers.
The Keeper? You mean Fiona.
Once she activates, we take over.
We control magic, not the Elders.
What does that mean, exactly? Put it this way The Elders think inside the box, we want to blow up the box.
Well, then this might be right up your alley.
The Elders took away Harry's powers.
He's dying.
Uh, I'm sorry.
He asked to see Fiona.
We need to keep her focused right now.
Tell her that it might be now or never.
Can the Sarcana help, like you did before, to break him out of Tartarus? I'm sorry, but there's nothing we can do.
You're half-Whitelighter.
You might have some way.
I don't, and asking me to help an Elder patsy is a tough sell.
Don't call him that.
He is my friend.
The Keeper is my only priority right now.
I am asking you to do this for me.
I can't help you, Mel.
It doesn't matter how we feel about each other.
There's a war brewing, sides are being drawn.
You're supposed to understand, you're one of us.
Maybe I'm not One of you.
And maybe this isn't what I thought it was.
FIONA: Everything okay? Did you hear that? I heard enough.
You were right to refuse her.
He may have been my Whitelighter once, but anyone that Cozy with my sister is not worth saving.
So, wait, I'm confused.
Did you break up? Pretty much.
Why do I get the feeling we're not here for comfort cocktails? If we can't reach the Elders, I'll make them reach us.
I'm sure with Harry incapacitated, they're surveilling us somehow.
We'll force their hand.
By doing what? Magic.
Here? I can't have these people knowing I can move crap with my mind.
Trust me, the Elders won't let it go that far.
So, uh, which one of you is coming home with me tonight? [CHUCKLES] Want to see a magic trick? Yeah, I do.
- Are we seriously doing this? - This is so dangerous, Mel.
Yeah, it is.
How dare you flaunt your magic to the public.
How dare you not give the Charmed Ones an open line of communication.
[TELEPATHIC WHISPERING] We demand you reinstate Harry Greenwood's powers.
He had nothing to do with what Charity Elder Callahan did.
And we need him.
Perhaps it is unclear who makes the rules.
MEL: More like it doesn't make sense who makes the rules.
We're supposed to be the most powerful witches on earth.
And you could be, if you would listen and learn.
You see us as tools to use, but guess what? Charity duped you, too.
Where's your culpability? We are the Charmed Ones.
Who the hell are you? Harry knowingly broke the rules and has accepted the consequences.
Follow his example.
What was that place? - That was like - Whoa.
- Mel, you were awesome.
- But it didn't work.
- What are we going to do? - [PHONE CHIMES] - - MEL: What happened? Four of them took Scarlet.
They had these animalistic blue eyes.
Maybe from whatever drugs they were on? I don't think so.
Up close, they were, like, glowing, and I could've sworn Scarlet was levitating.
- Wow.
I mean, that sounds - Crazy.
I know.
Crazy like that warehouse a few weeks ago when we showed up to take the Finches down, but they were already tied up and ready to confess.
That was just really lucky.
Yeah, unbelievably lucky.
Don't look at me.
I'm the last person who can explain this.
Are you absolutely certain the Sarcana aren't involved in this? I've only been in the Sarcana for a few months.
There's a lot I don't know, but I'll look into it.
MACY: Okay, cross-referencing glowing-eyed minions and that S symbol on their palms, I give you Viralis, a soul-sucking virility demon.
He looks into your soul, sees your deepest desire, and promises it to you in exchange for total surrender.
So cult leader makes sense, and Scarlet mentioned the word "surrender.
" [SIGHS] Hmm He keeps his victims docile by feeding them his demon blood, a blue sap-like nectar.
Every ten years, at the spring equinox Spring? It's freaking freezing.
Welcome to Michigan in March.
Climate change is real, people.
Anyway, in a ritual ceremony, Viralis sacrifices ten women using a Ooh Very phallic-looking dagger to maintain his virility and his life for another ten years.
He's using these women as demonic Viagra.
MACY: In order to vanquish Viralis, he has to be killed at the source of his power using and again, I repeat His very phallic-looking knife.
Sorry, this is just, this is really hard to, uh, to focus on some random demon when Harry is dying.
MAGGIE: Look, the last thing Harry wants is for us to let innocents die, and vanquishing this demon could save Parker.
I need demon blood and this Freudian nightmare of a bro demon has it.
W-Why don't I just give Parker my blood? It has to be a full demon, but thanks.
Too demon for some, not enough for others.
All right, well, if we're doing it, we have to do it now.
The vernal equinox is today.
Where are we gonna find Viralis? I might know where he hunts for vulnerable women.
The last thing Scarlet remembers is performing poetry at the student union.
That pretentious poetry thing the Humanities Department does? Mm-hmm.
Where I will totally be performing a super pretentious poem.
I'll go as bait.
He targets human women, right? Witches are probably immune to his tricks.
I'll read his mind and do what he wants me to do, and [EXHALES] he'll lead us to the other women.
Don't think you getting kidnapped is the solution to our problem.
[EXHALES] That compass Charity used on you, Macy.
Harry took it, and a receiver ring from her.
I'll wear the ring.
You guys can use the compass to track me, and then swoop in and take him down.
And I'll help free the other women, get the demon blood for Parker.
What could possibly go wrong? "What we think we have is not ours.
"The blood courses.
Then runs its course.
"You're lost in the shadow.
"And your White Light dims.
"And I am left holding nothing "that used to be something.
"Once upon a time.
" Thank you.
[FINGERS SNAPPING] [MICROPHONE FEEDBACK] "We are, "all of us, nothing more "than briefly animated meat, "stalking ourselves in the barest of feet.
"There is nothing more" That was amazing.
Uh, thank you.
I'm V.
Are you okay? I bet that's him.
Just a little sad.
Do you need to talk about it? Come on.
You really were so great up there.
You have so much heart.
I feel like I already know you from your poem.
I see you.
And your pain.
May I tell you your greatest desire? A love that never leaves.
Look at me, Goddess.
Listen to me.
I am a love that will never leave you.
I will be with you until the day that you die.
Thank you.
Let it all go.
I don't understand.
They were here, and then they weren't.
- Where did they go? - Somewhere where they can't be tracked.
He must have blocked the tracker.
Harry? - What? - Harry! You can orb again? Uh, no.
No, no.
I was worried about you.
So I, uh, well, I followed you.
In the way a normal person would.
Uh, well, a normal stalker.
Uh, actually I thought you were just having a sisterly coffee, so I took a nap.
Aging is exhausting.
So, what seems to be the problem? Maggie's been kidnapped by a soul-sucking cult leader demon who's turned off our ability to track her.
Oh Where oh.
My eyes aren't what they were a few days ago.
Ah Oh.
A simple spell will restore this.
Refricietur quod fractum erat.
MEL/MACY: Refricietur quod fractum erat.
HARRY: There.
Wait, we can just bypass a demon's mystical security system? You are the Charmed Ones.
There's a lot you can do.
I still have some friends on the inside.
They said you were fierce in championing me.
Thank you, Mel.
We really tried.
- And we won't give up.
- I know.
Now, off you go.
You're not coming with us? Uh, at this point, I could be a liability.
I'll drive.
- Wait, uh - That's right.
- I'm sorry.
- [GROANS] Stairs.
[CROW CAWING] - Only through surrender - WOMEN: Can we all be free.
In your sacred spot of surrender, you will find your very own dagger of freedom.
I will never leave you.
As our sun moves across the celestial equator, we celebrate the ripening of man.
The virility.
WOMEN: Zara gu ban-ngar.
You will shed your flesh vehicles so that I may continue my blessed work.
Goddess Wendy Are you ready to surrender yourself to me? I am.
Viralis-ra nam-til ud sudra sangesh riganib.
Zara gu ban-ngar! - Who's next? - WOMAN: Pick me! MACY: This must be it.
The important thing is to remain unnoticed until - [KNOCK ON WINDOW] - [ALL GASP] Niko?! What are you doing here? What are you doing here? - I, uh - Our sister is missing, and we, we tracked the GPS on her phone.
Oh, God.
Mel, do you know what this place is? - Uh - It's the cult that took Scarlet.
No! I saw their van on a neighbor's surveillance camera and pulled a partial plate; it's registered to this address.
I'm so sorry.
But I promise you, Mel, I will get your sister out of there.
Mel? Harry.
He's human now.
VIRALIS: What's happening? You! This disturbance has something to do with you.
[GASPS] If anybody comes through that door Kill them.
Anything for you, Master.
Where are you, creep-o? - [DOOR RATTLING] - [GASPS] [SHOUTING] Ow, Maggie! [DAGGER CLATTERS] Well, this makes things easier.
[CHANTING QUIETLY] Ah! Without your powers, I can't [CHANTING QUIETLY] [SHOUTS, GRUNTS] You couldn't just stay under the radar, huh? Mark my words I will get into that mind of yours before you die.
[YELPS] [PANTING] Oh Maggie, it's me, your sister.
Please don't do this.
[SHOUTS] Okay, fine, the gloves are off.
- [SHOUTS] - What about Parker, huh? - Remember him? [GRUNTS] - Parker? Who will die and leave me? I'm with Viralis now.
He'll love me until the day I die.
[BOTH GRUNTING] - [SNARLS] - [YELPS] He gives me everything Parker and Harry can't.
A love that never leaves! [GRUNTING CONTINUES] MACY: Maggie, Mel.
I got this, go get him! [SNARLING] [SHOUTING] MEL [IN DISTANCE]: Stop it! Get off! [CREAKING] [SNARLING] [GROWLS] Maggie, you're choking me! Macy, help! Yeah, trying! [STRAINING] Damn it! [MAGGIE SNARLING] Uh [PANTING] [GROANING] [CRIES OUT] [COUGHING] Oh, my God.
Mel? What what am I doing? Why are we in a barn? Oh, please get me out of here.
Actually, I need you to stay here for a few more minutes, okay? You were a little to the left.
Okay, come on, and if anything happens in there Is that? Is what? Nothing.
Let's go.
Did you freeze time? Shh.
Come on, old man.
Ah Scarlet.
I'm so glad you're here - Maggie.
- Harry.
Thank you so much for coming.
[GROANS] I wish I could heal you.
- Me, too.
- [CHUCKLES] - Hey.
- Hey.
Managed to get my hands on some of Viralis's demon blood.
It's all yours.
That's gonna help them.
Our cult leader seems to have vanished.
Something weird's going on here.
You always seem to be right at the center of it.
You should put some cream on that.
You wouldn't want it to scar.
Did it work? Please tell me I joined a demon cult and I won? - Oh, no.
- No, no.
No, no, it-it seems to be working.
- So can I see him? - No.
I was able to administer the first dose, but that means that he has demon blood coursing through his veins.
I'm gonna give him the second dose tonight.
A place it all begins A chain reaction This is where it gets worse before it gets better.
I will call you as soon as he's well enough, I promise.
We must be strong It's only just begun It's not over yet This battle's only begun Now that we've pulled the thread What's coming can't be undone [GROWLING] It's not over yet.
I mean, I had my hands around Mel's throat.
She was coming at me with this crazy force.
And then Macy swooped in with the final save.
I guess I did do the swooping this time.
[WEAKLY]: Well, it sounds like you all worked beautifully together.
And, Maggie, I know it's not the same, but We are a love that will never leave you.
Oh, I can, I can take that.
Oh Uh, do you-you want a snack? No, no, no.
- Tuck you in.
- Thank you.
[CRACKLING] I want to save Harry's life.
You came.
And why would you want to do that? Because I want the Charmed Ones to be in my debt.
And what about the Sarcana? FIONA: Who cares? This is my choice.
What are you doing here? She's saving Harry's life.
Fiona, there's way too much at stake for you to risk your power on a dying Whitelighter.
That dying Whitelighter's more important than you could possibly understand.
[WHISPERING]: Understand me, Jada, do you know what I could do to you? You'll find two of your Sarcana friends under my bed.
If you're fast, they might still be alive.
Is that a yes? Yes.
I'll bring him back when he's well.
I don't know when that will be.
There's so much I want to say.
I'm so sorry, Fiona.
Oh Harry I'm sorry, too.
[CHANTING QUIETLY] That which is hidden, reveal itself.
That which is hidden, reveal itself.
That which is hidden, reveal itself.
Oh, there you are.
[GRUNTING] I guess you're coming with me.
