Charmed (2018) s02e18 Episode Script

Don't Look Back in Anger

1 - Previously on Charmed - You may live as a happy family for the next two years, and then you may never see Macy again.
If you were to lay eyes on her, she'll die.
The Faction has Harry.
No, no.
Last time you saw Harry, he drove - away with Nadia? - She was calling him Jimmy.
Julian's the bad guy.
You must be the mysterious Maggie.
I was starting to think you didn't exist.
Oh, my God.
I forgot what it was like to want someone.
I want you.
Who are you, exactly? For the last bloody time, my name is James Westwell.
My friends call me Jimmy.
My mum called me Sprog.
Once had a girlfriend call me an arse.
But never, not in a million years, have I gone by Harry.
He doesn't remember any of it.
Any of what? Witches, demons, Whitelighters.
Okay, so, you don't remember any of us? You don't remember any of the events from the last 60 years.
Do you remember anything from the Shea Group? No, I told you, it was a blur.
Look, Harry uh, Jimmy.
Whoever you are, or think you are, actual lives are at stake.
You must remember something.
Anything? Well, there was one thing that stuck in my mind.
Just a phrase.
The Forty Stone Parasite.
Forty Stone Parasite? What does that even mean? You have to give us more than that.
No, as a matter of fact, I don't, because I don't know you.
And I refuse to be held hostage by a trio of girls.
That is definitely not Harry.
Alligatum est.
Who the hell are you people? We have to figure out what this Forty Stone Parasite means.
If it means anything at all.
Well, first things first.
I'm gonna whip up a Lost Memory Balm I read about in The Book of Elders.
Do you think that could bring back the old Harry? It's worth a shot.
If I have to spend one more minute with "Sprog," - I think I might scream.
- Meanwhile, we'll figure out what else the Faction's been up to.
Listen, I think I know someone who can help.
Who? I can't believe you've been talking to Dad behind my back.
It's not a big deal, Mags.
He's just been feeding me information about the Faction.
Then why keep it a secret? Look, I understand why you're upset, but you're the one who told me to get over my issues with him, so that's exactly what I'm doing.
No, you're you're right.
I I've I shouldn't have, um I I sh No, I'm-I'm happy for you, I - Are you okay? - I-It's just My skin is burning.
My arms burning.
Something's wrong.
Something's wrong.
Maggie, what's happening? Talk to me.
I think I'm dying.
Maggie Damn it.
Once your memory's back, maybe you can try and magic your way out of there.
Oh, right.
Fairy dust and potions and all that.
Sounds delightful.
It is, actually.
Watching you save others without a second thought, fighting the forces of evil, together.
"Forces of evil.
" You're a good man Harry.
And how do you know so much about me? We were What? a team.
My arms felt like they were on fire.
It could be a poison.
Some sort of magical neurotoxin? Did you touch anything at home? Any potions, old artifacts? It's Ray.
He wants to know our ETA.
Just go.
Not till we figure out what's wrong with you.
I'll be fine, Mel.
Already feeling better.
But if it happens again, call me.
Cancun? Classic Ray.
I need to get you out of there.
Uh, to perform this spell, I need to be able to rub this on you.
Like hell you will.
I'm not exactly thrilled about it either, Sprog.
But you do want your memory back, right? Can I trust you not to run? Sure.
How about now? W All right, what's that gonna do to me? Ideally, it'll dig out your lost memories.
But there may be some side effects.
Side effects? If I unlock memories that are too traumatic, there could be psychological and/or neurological damage.
I-If it goes wrong, I know a spell to stop the process.
But right now, I just need you to be still and trust me.
This other Harry fellow, he trusts you? Mm-hmm.
All right.
Dimitte ex carcere.
Release the blockage.
Thaw the frost.
Open your eyes to what was lost.
Hey, lady? You all right? - I see you driving - Miss? You okay? Talk to me.
I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough Forget you and forget her, too Said if I was richer, I'd still be with you - Now ain't that some? - Go, Macy! - Yeah, Macy! - Although there's pain in my chest I still wish you the best With a forget you Now, baby, baby, baby Why you want to, want to hurt me so bad? - So bad, so bad - So bad - Macy! - So bad I try to tell my mama But she told me "This is one for your dad" Your dad, your dad "Your daddy," why? Why? Why, lady? Yeah I love you I still love you Whoa, I see you driving 'round town With the girl I love And I'm like, "Forget you" Bloody hell.
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
You all right? Yeah.
Come on.
Come on, sit down.
There you go.
Breathe in through the nose.
One, two, three.
And out through the mouth.
One, two, three.
Have you had panic attacks before? - Panic attacks? - Mm-hmm.
I saw a lot of them when I was deployed.
No, no, this is, like, a magical neurotoxin - Something.
- Oh.
That mimics the exact symptoms of a panic attack.
Mind if I ask what was going on when this first started? Mm, nothing, really.
Just me and Mel were, um Talking about Ray.
I mean, my dad and I, we have issues, but He doesn't have that kind of power over me.
I'm a frigging Charmed One.
Those soldiers I treated They were tough, too.
But having a panic attack doesn't mean you're weak.
It just means you're human.
Uh look, I appreciate your medical opinion, and truly thank you for the help, but this is not a mental thing.
This is like A virus.
Or magical, or magical virus.
So, a little Purification Tea and I'll be fine.
Oh, thank God.
Come on.
Come on, wake up, please.
Come on! Wake up! Look, I'm sorry.
I tried to help, but I can't get whatever happened to you pinned on me, all right? Whoa.
That portal.
It gets me every time.
I know, right? - Hey.
Are you okay? - Mm-hmm.
Little Bug.
- I missed you.
- Missed you, too.
What is this? This is what Dad's been up to since he left.
Piecing together everything he could about the Faction.
- You've been busy.
- Yeah, well ChooChi helped.
Hey, Mace.
Long time no see.
Uh, well, yeah, not, not since class this morning.
Saw you getting your freak on earlier.
Come on, lighten up.
Did you just? What, you see something you like, you think it belongs to you? So you're not gonna twerk for me now? Yeah, how about that drink? You're so uptight.
Don't ever touch me again! You're on fire! What the hell was that? What's happening? What's happening? Secret meetings in Florida, shipping routes in the Midwest.
The Faction's everywhere.
Look at these private jet manifests.
The same people you saw at the Shea Group fundraiser.
All flying together somewhere.
All with their destinations left blank.
Wherever these people have been going, that's where we need to be.
Nothing about Forty Stones? What did you say? That was the only clue Harry gave us.
Something about a Forty Stone Parasite.
The Iguazu Circle.
It's the Stonehenge of Brazil.
There's a ring of 40 stones thought to have - supernatural powers.
- That must be it.
The rain forests down there are filled with parasitic monsters.
Maybe the Faction's going after them.
I don't know, Mel.
I've looked and there's nothing about Brazil on that board.
That's because these people are very good at covering their tracks, hon.
Let's do this.
I think I'm gonna sit this one out.
You're still not feeling well? - Yeah.
- Okay.
You haven't gone soft, have you, James? Ah, damn it.
I know you must've lost your whole-ass mind to think you can walk into my house at 3:00 a.
, drunk? Uh, no-no-no, Dad No-no-no.
You may be in college, but you are living under my roof, and saving money on room and board, which means you got to play by my rules.
- I know.
- No-no-no! No more excuses.
Macy Vaughn, you have got to buckle down.
One minute you want to be a baker, then it's music; now you're studying science? You got to pick one and focus.
And if I catch you like this again, it'll be game over.
Honey? Macy, what is it? Oh, no, you'll just think I'm being drunk and And stupid.
I'm on your side, always.
Even when I'm upset.
Now tell me, what's going on? Um there was this guy, this idiot from my class.
He-he said things.
- What did he say? - D-D-Doesn't matter.
I got mad.
Really mad.
I lost control and then there was fire.
Fire came out of my hands, Dad.
Am I, am I crazy? Mm.
You're tired.
You've had a lot to drink.
Why don't you just lay down, and We'll talk about it later, okay? You'd better get out here.
That thing we always worried might happen? Well it happened.
Let me guess.
Wasn't the place? I don't want to talk about it.
I could have sworn that that was it! I mean, come on, where else are we gonna find a Forty Stone Parasite? Nowhere.
Because that's not what Harry heard them say.
What? He was delirious, Mel.
So what if he thought he heard "Forty Stone Parasite," but he actually heard "Fort Easton Power Site"? It's an abandoned military base in Oregon built around a hydroelectric dam.
Six months ago, the government sold it to an undisclosed buyer.
The Shea Group.
It's big, it's isolated, and it's got a built-in power supply.
So it's basically a supervillain's dream house.
Way to go, Little Bug.
I'm not little anymore.
Hello? Macy? Hello? H-Hello?! Hello?! Who's there? Oh.
Hey, man, uh, I'm trying to reach Macy.
Maggie was pretty upset earlier.
She didn't pick up when I tried to check in, so I thought she might be with Macy.
Oh, no, no, no, no.
Oh, there's a woman here convulsing.
- I need to get her help! - Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Turn her on her side, keep her from choking, but stay put.
- What? - Stay put.
I'll be there in five.
Hurry up, will you? Come on.
It's all right.
It's all right.
We're good.
Do you hear that? This place generates enough power to run an entire city.
Then we got to find a way inside.
See what the Faction's using it for.
Sure, but how? You can't just melt human guards, and I am not bringing a baton to a gunfight.
This kind of reminds me of the Lonely Lair in BattleDown.
- Oh, my God.
- Huh? - Huh? - You're right.
- Uh-huh.
- What's BattleDown? Well, it's an online game we've been playing.
You two you've been playing Games together? Only a couple of times.
You're not even a gamer.
I know, but Dad, well, he got me into it.
It's not just the Faction you've been talking about.
You have this you have this whole secret relationship.
And I'm not, I'm not More guards.
More guards.
We have to get off the road.
Right now.
Let's go, let's go, let's go.
I've brought someone to help.
But whatever you do, do not, do not look on the other side of this sheet.
Dad, you're scaring me.
Promise me.
I promise.
Hello, Macy.
Do I know you? No, sweetheart.
But I've spent the last 20 years wishing that you did.
Because, you see, I'm your mother.
- Dad! - Macy! - Dexter! - Macy! - Macy, Macy, please.
- No! No - Please.
- Dad, no, no, don't.
- Macy! Don't! - Don't keep her from me.
- Don't - Baby.
You need to hear her out.
I wish I had more time, Macy.
But this barrier between us, it is a matter of life and death.
So, please, do not do that again.
I've needed you so many times.
How can you come this close and not even look at me? Ay, my baby, I'm so sorry.
I know.
But they're the necromancer's rules.
Wha? N-Necromancer? That's not a thing.
Before tonight, you probably didn't think fire could possibly come out of a young woman's hands.
My baby.
This world is far more complicated than you know.
So then what what am I? Many things.
But Right now, the only thing that matters is that you are my daughter.
And I love you.
So much.
Harry? We're up here.
How's she doing? - She stopped convulsing.
- That's good.
Yeah, but I didn't do anything.
All of a sudden, she seemed so at ease.
Like she was dreaming.
Whatever you were poisoned with, it must be resistant to that tea.
It's not poison.
It's panic.
I've been having panic attacks.
What? Since when? Since this morning.
Actually, that's not true.
Maggie, do you remember Dr.
Gordon? - Yeah, Mom's work friend.
- Yeah.
She was a therapist.
Now, we didn't want to tell you that it was therapy because, well, you were already so upset about the divorce and you were refusing to go to school, you were hyperventilating to the point where you passed out, so, well, she was treating you for For panic attacks.
See, this is the problem.
All the secrets and lies because no one in this family thinks I'm strong enough to handle the truth! That's why you didn't tell me that you weren't my biological father, and why you didn't tell me that you guys are BFFs.
Maggie, you're right.
I screwed up.
- But this may not be the best time.
- No, you know what, Mel? It is.
Because I am pissed and I'm hurt and I am tired of pretending I'm not! Look, I get that it must have sucked finding out your wife cheated and had a kid that wasn't yours.
But it's also really hard to be that kid.
Living a life with so many missing pieces, and not being able to talk to the one person who can fill in the blanks, because like it or not, Dexter is gone, Mom is gone, and that just leaves you! Ray, it is just you! - I understand.
I - That's why I needed you to talk to me about this stuff! Not Mom, not Mel, but me! Maggie - Why didn't you just tell me? - What are you looking at? - Maggie - What?! Look.
What happened to them? You did it.
When you were letting out all of that anger, it's like your powers expanded.
It's almost like they were feeling all of your emotions.
Okay, listen.
Listen, Maggie.
Let's just go in there, okay? And let's see what the Faction is up to.
And then when we get back home, I will start filling some of those missing pieces in.
I promise.
Okay? Okay.
She's not breathing.
What? Uh, seizures can cause chest muscles to tighten over the lungs.
- You've got to heal her.
- What? What? - Heal her? - I can't.
- You really don't remember anything? - No.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
I'm losing her.
All right, do something.
Stay with me, Macy! Yeah, quick.
I know the world can be a cruel and frustrating place.
But when you feel yourself start to lose your temper, I need you to breathe.
Because when women like you and I lash out, there is no second chance.
And I know it's unfair, but as more powerful women rise up in the world, things'll change for the better.
Do you understand? I think so.
And in the meantime, my sweet girl, please, clamp down on your emotions.
It's the only way to keep the fire at bay, and keep you safe.
W-W-Where are you going? I promise, our paths will cross again.
But until then, please know that I will cherish this moment for the rest of my life.
Mom What's happening? Mom?! Be careful with her.
She can't remember any of this.
Of course, ma'am.
Hello, Macy.
She called it a balm.
It was supposed to restore lost memories or something, and then there was a blast and she went flying across the room.
Okay, so clearly, the spell backfired.
The question is why? When did you get this cut? - Where? - Right behind your ear.
I-I don't know.
A scar that fresh, raised The Faction probably implanted something in your head.
The Faction? What are you talking about? A magic blocker of some kind.
That'd explain the-the spell blowback, the memory loss.
Hey, what are you doing? Isn't that keeping her alive? It's just delaying the inevitable.
The only way to save Macy is with magic.
Which means you, Harry.
We're gonna have to cut this thing out of your head.
I beg your pardon? Who are you? I'm someone who helps people.
Special people, like you.
So, you're gonna stop the fire from happening again? Not exactly.
But I will take away the trauma, so you can live the life you were always meant to live.
It's okay.
Macy, I would never do anything to hurt you.
You have my word.
What's your name? Call me Harry.
Hold on.
No bloody way are you cutting into my head.
I know what I'm doing.
I have emergency field training.
She needs you.
Just do it.
Before I change my mind.
Hey! How'd you get in here? The main entrance.
You're here for the demo? Exactly.
Now where is it? We've heard so many great things about this damn dam.
So far, we're not impressed.
Well, you're a bit early.
Yeah, because we don't have all day.
You don't get to where we are by being late.
Follow me.
Got it.
You can be an honorary sister.
By the power of the pouf.
Jump! Now! James Macy.
Come on.
Harry? Where are your sisters? Oh, they-they went to track down your, uh, uh, Forty Stone Parasite.
I was afraid you were gonna say that.
We need to find them, now.
Damn it.
They must have put more of that green poison in my system.
Well, what is it, Harry? What do you remember? What are Mel and Maggie walking into? Access confirmed.
Viewing station activated.
Beautiful, aren't they? And right on schedule.
Lockdown initiated.
Please stay where you are.
Nobody move.
Hell no.
Mel, don't.
There's too many of them.
They'll shoot.
Maggie? Julian.
What are you doing here? I'd ask you the same thing, but Everyone knows the handsome billionaire's always the bad guy.
Macy was right.
It really was Julian all along.
But now he knows what we are.
And where we are, which means SafeSpace is no longer safe.
So, Mom really came to see you, back when you were living in New York? I was so wrong about so many things.
Are you crying? Just feeling a lot of feelings.
See, my whole life, I-I believed that restraint was this essential part of who I am, but maybe it's not.
Maybe it was something Marisol and my dad imposed upon me to protect me from the demonic side that I-I didn't know how to handle.
I want to know what Harry was like back then.
Ah, well, he was Harry.
Our Harry.
Or at least, the full Windsor knot version.
But he was sweet and kind, and in my darkest moment, he was there for me.
Mom must have wiped his memory, too.
So he wouldn't be tempted to tell you.
Yeah, I-I wonder if she knew that we were Destined? Speaking of destiny, I think we might have to save the world again.
Yeah, I don't know what Julian has planned, but if he needs a magical army for it, it can't be good.
Then we'll just have to take him down.
You know, psych was your mom's major too, right? Well, before she got into women's studies.
Oh, I had no idea.
Come here.
Sit with me.
Maggie, you're 20 years old.
Your life can still be whatever it is you want it to be.
Now, no pressure but I do have some friends on the faculty at the University of Washington if you ever need me to make a call.
Don't they think you're dead? Yeah, well for you I'd gladly be resurrected.
Maggie you have every right to be angry.
No kid should have to go through what you went through, and for that, I am sorry.
I am.
But the reason why I never told you the truth about not being your biological father was because it never really mattered to me.
From the day you were born, you were my daughter.
And to admit otherwise would have been a little too painful, because the truth is, see, the truth is I love you too damn much.
I love you, too, Dad.
You're a real softie, huh? What are you doing? I feel like dancing.
That spell blew you back with quite a bit of force earlier.
You might have a concussion.
No, Harry.
What I have is clarity.
I don't want to overthink this anymore or temper my feelings or keep waiting for the right moment.
So, what do you want? For you to get your ass over here and dance with me.
