Charmed (2018) s02e07 Episode Script

Past is Present

1 - Previously on Charmed - [SCREAMS.]
What is going on? Have you had any weird residual side effects? Like what? - Images of worms.
- No.
If I do what you ask, will you leave me alone? "Marisol wants you to know what you're looking for is between the sheets"? How does she know about Mom? You want to try on my ring? You're pretty obsessed with this thing.
- [GASPS.]
- Maggie, wait.
I can see why my loser brother was so taken with you.
Parker is not a loser.
- He's decent and kind.
- Exactly.
- Don't talk about Harry.
- Aw.
He's special to you, isn't he? But I think you like me better.
You'll never be enough for her.
Yeah, like that Yeah, yeah, I was born to be the greatest Uh, yeah, I was born to be your favorite Look, Ma, I'm on a billboard, I made it That's what I dream every day, so I say it Yeah, I used to be broke, though Money was so-so, used to be loco But I was born to be the realest Yeah, yeah, I was born to be the illest - 'Cause anything is possible - Uh, if you don't know, it got to go Uh, I'm about to, 'bout to blow Uh, I'm about to start the show, aah! You try to knock me down, you try to take my crown Again.
Yeah, look at me now [EXHALES, PANTING.]
Not bad.
You're pushing me hard.
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, right? Ali.
I'm impressed.
So, uh, we gonna talk about the elevator incident? Thought we were pretty talked out.
You, uh, tried on my ring on, and then, and then ran away, Maggie.
Commitment spooks me.
I give.
Oh, make sure you're not dropping your shoulder during your cross.
Leaves you vulnerable.
Right, yeah, wouldn't want to be vulnerable.
Wha You cannot stop me, no Hey, you cannot stop me, you cannot stop me, go.
Wh-What is that? Is that a cloning serum? Sorting through these old potions seems to be paying off.
Do you think he's really gone? The darklighter? It would seem so.
You-you must be relieved.
Are you? - Uh - [DOOR OPENS.]
I got it.
SWAN: Good morning, visionaries.
Change your thoughts, change your world.
- Vegan breakfast taquito? - Oh, no.
I'm good, Swan.
Kat's store is closed, and I haven't seen her in a while.
Any idea when she might be back? I heard she had some kind of Vegan breakfast taquito? - Thank you.
- Some kind of what? - Breakdown.
- Oh.
Apparently she kept on seeing worms everywhere.
Worms? Yeah.
Word is, she's not coming back.
Stealing someone's sweat? Feels like an invasion of privacy or something.
A necessary one.
According to The Book of Elders, this spell could reveal what magic is present in any given person or creature.
What if I'm blowing this whole thing out of proportion? Maybe there's a perfectly reasonable explanation.
For Jordan's magical ring that gave you new powers? And a vision of him in danger.
But, Maggie, you said you couldn't tell if he was good or bad.
HARRY: And if we have an enemy in our midst, we need to know.
All right.
You ready? Yeah.
BOTH: Ostende verum tuum.
HARRY: Symbols.
Write them down.
Let me see.
What's it say? Jordan is cursed by the dying breath of a witch.
Why would a witch curse Jordan unless he'd done something really horrible? I don't believe it.
He seems like such a decent man.
How could I be so wrong about him? Well, sometimes emotions cloud our judgment.
Well, we need to get to the bottom of this before something terrible happens.
Sacred Grove.
What are those lines? - Ley lines.
- Ley what? Naturally-occurring supernatural currents.
They intersect at great sources of power, like Stonehenge, Bermuda Triangle, and the Sacred Grove.
Which is under the jurisdiction of the Elders.
Or was.
I'll explain when we get there, but we need to go now.
Sorry, we're closed.
Yes, I saw the sign.
I'm a friend of Katrina's.
I was hoping you could tell me where she is.
Actually, I'll take that.
What did you say your name was? Mel.
I'm Amita.
Kat's mother.
Kat's not well.
Can I talk to her? I-I think I could be helpful.
Are you a doctor, Mel? If not, I think you should mind your own business.
Mel? I told you to wait outside, Kitty.
Kat, can I have five minutes? - Please.
- I already told you It's okay, Ma.
Five minutes.
So, why is the grove sacred? Somewhere here, there's a hallowed tree, the fruit of which provides temporary immunity from all things magical.
Dangerous in the wrong hands.
Guess we should stock up while we're here.
The fruit is not ours to take.
This land belongs to the dryads.
Peaceful creatures.
They live in harmony with nature.
Oh, no.
The tree.
It's dead.
The grove was under the protection of Whitelighters.
MAGGIE: But they're all gone now.
A-And so if someone had stolen some of that fruit? They'd be unstoppable.
Over here.
Her wounds are severe.
Are you all right? Who, who are you? Uh, we're witches.
You're safe.
What happened here? I sensed that the dryads were in danger.
I came here to help.
You're a telepath? AMELIA: When I got here, there were a dozen demons.
Carnals and Malignants working together, taking what doesn't belong to them.
And the dryads? HARRY: The dryads.
They're all dead.
Carnals and Malignants working together.
Can't imagine who's behind that.
Perdu parmi vous, vipères J'ai perdu l'envie Où Que j'aille, je m'écaille Et Mon sang-froid s'est enfui Susan, you talented woman.
Abigael You could at least knock.
Apologies, ladies.
We need to talk.
Excuse us, Susan And Susan.
For the tenth time, I didn't destroy any sacred tree or take any damned fruit.
God, you're worse than Greenpeace.
What, and we're supposed to take your word for it? After all we've been through, you don't trust me? Harold, tell them how close we've gotten after our little adventure.
I'm starting to think we'd be better off without you altogether.
Ooh, someone's getting rough.
Perhaps your time with the darklighter paid off.
Maybe it did.
Macy, we need her.
I'm touched.
And much as I'd love one of your damn apples, I'm not the lucky bastard you're after.
Who is, then? You won't believe me.
Actually, she won't.
What are you talking about? It's not me you want.
It's him.
Imitare absconditum! GODRIC [ON MIRROR.]
: All hail the Overlord! [CROWD CHEERING.]
: Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! - Caine! Caine - Parker? Parker Is the Overlord? I don't believe you.
Parker wanted nothing to do with his demon side.
That's why he left Hilltowne and me.
Well, things changed, apparently.
When you all kept me hostage in your command center, my compatriots got restless.
They had teed up the Overlord.
They needed to deliver.
Enter my idiot half brother.
With the Caine family name, they assumed the Demon World would fall into line.
And they were right.
I laid the groundwork, he waltzed in and took the throne.
My throne.
If she was calling the shots, I doubt we'd find her here, with a pair of Lazy Susans.
ABIGAEL: Now, if you don't mind, either kill me or let me get back to what's left of my life.
Take me to him.
- What? No.
- Maggie.
I know him better than anyone else.
He's not behind these killings.
Maybe he can help us figure out who is.
And we can get back the sacred fruit.
What if you're wrong? Well, then I'm the only one who might be able to stop him from whatever's coming next.
Let's go.
Excuse me, I'm not the metro train.
Well, you're my ticket in.
And, frankly, I'm your ticket back from exile.
MEL: Stress-induced hallucinations? That's what the doctors call them.
I've had them my whole life.
My mother found a facility in Utah that will take me.
Maybe this time they'll actually fix what's broken.
Or at least stop me from sending you crazy texts because voices tell me that you need to look "between the sheets.
" I'm so embarrassed.
That "crazy text" you sent Saved my life.
What if I could prove to you that you are not crazy? How? The worms.
- I saw them, too.
- What? Mel, I have to go.
My mother's taking me to the airport today.
Do you trust me? Then come with me now.
Maggie, we can't let you go alone.
It's too dangerous.
Parker will feel ambushed.
If he really is uniting demons against witches, I might be the only one who can do something about it.
Can we get on with it, people? You're prepared to trust her? I don't But I have leverage.
If the Demon World were to find out that Abby's half-witch I wonder what they would do with her.
Right, Abigael? I've got this.
Also got this.
A truth serum.
Emotions cloud judgment.
I'll get the truth from Parker one way or another.
Well, while you're gone, we will get to the bottom of Jordan.
One way or another.
Don't be a stranger.
The Susans and I could use a fourth.
What? Are you and her, is? What, do you really think I'd be that stupid? She's dangerous.
Yeah, well, sometimes danger can be exciting.
Not when you're thinking clearly.
Now, back to the task in hand.
Jordan I have an idea.
Okay, so it looks like about eight guards.
But I think if you give us a fiery distraction, we can make it to the side door.
- Abigael.
- MAN: Front gate.
One of the Charmed Ones here to see the Overlord.
Maggie Vera, to be exact.
What are you doing? Getting us through that door without getting us killed.
Jab, jab, cross.
Jab, cross, hook, uppercut.
Ah, nice! Not bad for a beginner.
You ever had any fight training? Well, you know [GRUNTING AND SHOUTING.]
a little here and there.
Well, you never know when self-defense skills - will come in handy, yeah? - [CHUCKLES.]
MACY: Yeah, you know, uh The drills are great and everything, but, um Do you think we could spar? In your first session? Yeah, I-I just, I want to know what it feels like to have a punch come at me.
Fake punch.
Go easy.
We'll take it slow, yeah? [MOUTHS.]
The Charmed One, sir.
And her.
Hello, brother.
You brought her here? No, she brought me.
You have nerve showing your face here.
Parker, stop! She's not the enemy! That's funny.
Because two days ago, my sister here tried to kill me.
- [GASPS.]
- Isn't that right, Abigael? [ABIGAEL GASPING.]
Sorry, sis.
Powers don't work with that cuff.
Or have you forgotten? [ABIGAEL CHOKING.]
You tried to kill him?! [COUGHS.]
Nothing like finding a basilisk under your pillow.
You haven't a shred of proof I was behind that.
Oh, but he does.
Thought I smelled a turncloak.
Ah, Godric.
It seems my dear sister here's been working with my ex-girlfriend.
Parker, I had no idea, I swear.
Smells of poison.
It's truth serum.
I can explain.
Lock them up.
Parker! I just want a minute! After everything we've been through, don't I deserve that?! Stop.
Everyone out.
Leave her with me.
- My Overlord, I suggest - I said everyone.
I thought you were dead.
Ready? Yes.
Oh, yeah.
Ooh hey.
Ooh! But spend that on cheesecake But I got a father who will never Nice! [LAUGHING.]
Girl, don't even bother Swervin' on the old me - So, girl, don't even bother - Aah! Cheap shot.
That's not cool.
My bad.
Lesson number one Always keep your guard up, right? Lesson number two Don't pick a fight with someone above your weight class.
Can I help you with something, buddy? Uh, no, I'm just waiting for my friend here.
Well, thank you so much, uh, for the, uh, for the tutorial.
It was very fun.
MACY: I can't believe I just whacked him in the face.
Please tell me that cloning serum worked.
Mission accomplished.
Welcome to my home.
You blindfolded me so you could show me your foyer? Not exactly.
: Really? I cannot believe they let you graduate with that Spanish Mel! Higher angle, please.
- MARISOL: Oh, don't be silly.
- You look beautiful.
Mwah! I'm proud of you both.
You're so cheesy, Mom.
That voice.
That woman, she spoke to me.
Told me to call you.
Who is she? My mother.
She died last year.
You are not crazy, Katrina.
You're a medium.
A darklighter assassin came for you and other magical creatures and was sent by Someone.
We don't know who, but we had to disappear to save ourselves.
So where have you been all this time? I I'm-I'm sorry.
- I just - Don't trust me? Parker, last time I saw you, you were going on a walkabout to figure out your life.
Now you're sitting on a throne with demons calling you "my Overlord.
" Forgive me if I'm a little freaked out.
Believe me, this wasn't the plan.
Godric found me, said I could "unite the Demon World" because of who my dad was.
The Caine name meant something, apparently.
But you hate everything your father stood for.
Which is why I'm doing this.
Not to start a war like him, but to end one.
Between all the demon bloodlines.
No more scheming, no more bloodshed, just peace.
If this is about peace, why kill the dryads? Abigael told you that was me? And you believed her? Look, I wouldn't lie to you, Maggie, not after everything we've been through.
And I'll prove it.
No, wait.
I don't want to start like this.
Trust is earned, not forced.
Tell me how I earn it back.
The dryads.
Help me figure out who's responsible for the massacre.
Help me recover the sacred fruit before it can be used against us.
Some kind of Overlord you turned out to be.
Is it not enough to betray me? Now you've come to gloat? I wasn't the one who disappeared, Abigael.
The masses needed an Overlord, and I found one.
They'll follow him.
- He's a Caine.
- So am I.
You can't seriously think that twit can hold the bloodlines together.
He's simple, he's soft.
- And weak enough to control.
Oh, you still think you're the one controlling him.
That witch has already crawled inside his bleeding heart and made a little nest.
And I'll prove it to you.
Where are we going? To find out if someone here is responsible for the dryad massacre.
What is this? You asked us to find the killer.
This Is how we demons do it.
Let the torture begin.
Who was behind the killings in the Sacred Grove? Parker, there has to be another way.
Demons won't give themselves up unless their lives are on the line.
Torture isn't the answer, ever.
- But I thought - Now.
So what exactly is your plan? [SIGHING.]
: Okay.
Well, I can't move it, so I guess the ring did not reignite my powers.
Well, perhaps rejuvenating Maggie's abilities, whatever power the ring had was depleted.
This ring holds the key to so many questions.
We need to find out its history, - where it's from.
- A provenance spell.
Uh, we-we can extract its essence.
Yes, rip out its essence.
Just like me.
What the Elders did to you to make him.
You felt something for him, didn't you? My darklighter.
I-I don't know what I felt.
- You liked him.
- Harry, he was a piece of you.
Because that's all I am now pieces.
Let's get on with this, shall we? So your dead mother talked to me from the spirit world? When we first met, you said there are things that we can't explain.
Just all this time.
The doctors, the tests, everyone thinking I was crazy.
I'm so sorry.
Mel, how do you know so much about this? Mediums, supernatural phenomena? Let's just say my family were believers.
I'm a believer, too, in fate.
I believe the universe brought us together for a reason.
I can't.
I have been down this road before, and it doesn't end well.
I don't understand.
I know.
I'm sorry.
- MAGGIE: How's the food? - Compared to what? Oh, you brought company.
Much harder to get a table for four down here.
PARKER: I wouldn't get too comfortable, sis.
We have some questions for you.
And you're gonna answer them Truthfully.
You dosed me with truth serum? Godric, you double-dealing demon scum.
Why, thank you.
So, how do you feel about Harry? I find him adorably, wretchedly endearing, and I'd love to corrupt him in a sexual way.
Bloody hell.
Oh, good, it's working.
Who stole the fruit from the Sacred Grove? Who are you protecting? [GRUNTING.]
Abigael! Who killed the dryads? I did.
All right? I did.
It was me.
For the sacred fruit.
I thought it might give me a fighting chance of destroying him and reclaiming what's mine, but when we desecrated the tree, all the fruit turned to dust.
And will you ever stop trying to kill me? So long as I live, never.
Well, thank you for your honesty.
Take her.
Wha What's happening? Where are they taking her? - [GRUNTING.]
- Get off me.
To be executed, of course.
Execution? Look, I'm no fan of Abigael's, but she's your own blood.
She tried to kill me, and she just admitted she'll never stop.
Look, what choice do I have? There's always another choice.
If you choose to kill your own sister, there's no coming back from that.
Not for you and not for us.
Running the Demon World is about strength.
I'll look weak.
They'll come for me, Maggie.
Then give them something else to fear.
It's time.
This should show us the most significant moment in the ring's history.
And hopefully reveal how this inexplicably cursed boxing instructor managed to get his hands on a ring of such power.
Revela su procedencia.
The ring doesn't belong to you, - Mr.
- Does now.
Where's the rest of the black amber? I'll never tell you.
None of us will.
Then you and your coven can burn.
I'll find what I need in the ashes.
Take her.
- Take all of them.
No matter how long your seed may strive, it shall never take hold nor stay alive, cursed to wither five by five.
I curse you, Lawrence Mortimer Chase! [SCREAMING.]
A curse On Lawrence Mortimer Chase.
That's Jordan's last name.
Abigael Jameson-Caine, you've admitted to crimes against the Overlord and the dryads.
Such treachery can only be met with death.
I disagree.
A quick death is too kind for her.
Dying a demon too noble for her.
So, instead, sister I sentence you to be stripped of your demonic powers and your immortality.
You will spend the rest of your life incarcerated as a mortal.
Sir, I must protest.
You dare question my judgment? [GASPING.]
: Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Caine! Thank you.
For saving her.
Thank you for saving me.
Wake me up Pull at the seam Wake me up I don't want to be Lost in the dark - Pull at the seam - I don't want to feel I don't want to feel Heavy like the, heavy like the sun - I don't want to be - Wake me up I don't want to be lost in the dark - Is this a dream? - I don't want to feel I missed you, Vera.
I missed you, too.
Lawrence Mortimer Chase, also know as the Witchfinder General.
Born in 1864.
Died 1889.
25 years old.
"Five by five.
" "Cursed to wither five by five.
" Hmm.
Lawrence's son, Rudolph Chase, also died at 25.
And his son Herman, too.
Jordan's not the only one who's cursed.
All the men in Jordan's family died before their 26th birthday.
Macy, how old is Jordan? He's 25.
What did you tell her? What she wanted to hear.
That the voices stopped.
And she believed you? It's hard to have to hide your truth from the world.
But I guess you already know that.
You ready, Kitty? Be right there.
- Wait, I thought - Mel, I'm still leaving.
I don't need hospitalization, but I do need some time away just to Figure out my life.
In the meantime would you find someone fitting to watch over Spellbound? Manage the store? I'd be honored.
To what could have been.
Where are you going? I have to go.
Why? Because I don't belong here.
What if you did? Look what you and I did together.
A witch and a demon.
We found a way forward without bloodshed.
What if we could make the world like that? What if we could make peace? Yeah.
What if? I can't lose you again, Maggie.
I don't ever want us to be apart.
What are you doing? Margarita Emilia Vera will you marry me? [FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING.]
That was quite a gamble.
But it worked.
They won't be looking for you now that they think I was the one who stole the sacred fruit.
And thanks for the snack, by the way.
That truth serum had no chance.
And your powers? [GASPS.]
What's next, my Overlord? Parker's going down.
And anyone who gets in the way Is going with him.
