Charmed (2018) s04e04 Episode Script


1 All right, ma'am, walk this way.
We're taking you in for booking.
Eyes to me, please.
You're up.
Released on your own recognizance.
You got someone you can call? Thanks for picking me up.
Of course.
You ready to go home? Come on.
Why won't you stop? Come on.
Damn it.
Maggie, I'm sorry, I think I incinerated What's wrong? I screwed up.
The patient spider watched their lives.
Saw them dither, worry, cry.
No need for action, just stand by.
For she will be there when they die.
I can't believe she didn't call me first.
- No offense.
- None-none taken.
Or Harry, or Jordan.
Look, I don't want to get involved in couple stuff, but she made it sound like her and Jordan had some kind of fight.
And, um, Harry I don't know what's going on with him, but I think he's burned out.
He told me last night he was gonna go live a little, whatever that means.
Great time for a midlife crisis.
Did Maggie say anything about the arrest? No.
And I didn't want to push her.
I had no idea she was this out of control.
I should've known.
I know I can fix this if I can just get Maggie to open up.
I think Maggie just needs time.
No, we don't have time.
Not with the Tallyman out there planning God knows what.
I just wish I could take her away.
Okay, well, what if you could? I know I'm not an expert witch, but I did survive being swallowed by a Snake Lady yesterday, so I'm sure I can hold down the fort for a few hours.
I picked one up at the Blue Camellia.
It's mostly just crowdsourced complaints for the magical world, like, "Kyons are getting into my trash," but it's a good way to keep tabs on the non-witch and demon action out there.
- Next is the witchboard - Oh, yeah, right.
How do I use that thing? All you need to know is that if you see a red light, that's bad, and you call me.
I've got you on favorites.
No cell reception where I'm taking Maggie, so you need to call me on this.
- Call you on this? - Blow into it.
All right.
I hear this, and I will get back to you in less than a minute.
- Is this all too much? - No.
I used to be a temp night watchperson back in high school, so I know how to sit on my ass and stare at some screens for a few hours.
Get out of here.
Wait, uh, where exactly are you going? What the hell is Ripples? Ripples is the number one magical spa in the Midwest.
Josefina tried to get us to go there, remember? Mel, I I'm really tired.
Maybe another time.
Well, listen to this, "Powered by an ancient, crystalline spring "that refreshes and renews.
" Sounds like a bath, which we have here.
I just I really want to be alone, okay? What you want and what you need are two different things.
You've been through a lot, Maggie.
You need this.
I need this.
We need this.
Okay, fine, I'll go, on one condition.
Please don't interrogate me about last night.
This is gonna be great for all of us.
You and I are gonna get a little R&R, and Kaela is going to get an easy first solo flight in the command center.
I'm the queen of the world! Ch-checking in the mirror Come in a little clearer I swear it's getting near I shout it on the megaphone The crowd is getting louder I got this wild power Heartbeat count to three I'm stepping out And showing off I'm busy buzzing in the street.
This can't be too hard.
Welcome to Ripples, the spa at Merrow's Spring.
I think he's a merman.
Please don't pander to me, Mel.
Hey, Arnold? You have a reservation? Yes, for Mel and Maggie.
Vera! The Charmed Ones.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, I put that in the book, and I thought it might be a joke.
You wouldn't believe how many reservations we get for Morgan Le Fay and Stevie Nicks.
Robert! Rob! Thank you, Robert.
Uh, please take the Charmed Ones' bags and such to the lockers.
Putting away the tail Right this way.
Sorry about Robert.
He's new.
And this is our lounge and gift shop with unique items you will not find anywhere else.
All bath bombs are 50% off today only.
- Hm.
- Well, maybe tomorrow as well.
And as you can see, our majestic water lily has just bloomed.
I think it's an omen that you are about to have the most soothing day.
We'll start with the Phoenix Facial.
Then the Kraken Callous Nibble Don't worry, they're just babies, don't have their adult teeth yet.
And then, my favorite, the scalp massage.
Do you have a treatment for sore muscles? From, like Fighting too much? Unbelievable.
We've been here ten seconds, and you're already fishing for info.
- We agreed, Mel.
- That is not - what I meant, Maggie.
- No, no, no.
Uh We eschew tension here at Ripples, so, for you two, the, uh, the Premium Treatment will be gratis.
Can we just try to have fun? I don't know, can we? No talking, no questions, just - Kraken nibbles, okay? - Deal.
Great! We'll have that parched and dull skin of yours glowing in no time.
Not again.
I really got to figure this out.
Queen of the world, my ass.
Did I do that? Oh, no.
Um Oh, no.
Maggie and Mel Oh, no, no.
Everything has to be perfect for the Charmed Ones, so when you are finished here, - I want you to polish the lily pads.
- Of course.
Hello? Hey, this isn't funny.
Come on, this is dangerous.
It's really hot in here.
Donnie, is that you? Don-Donnie, I swear Please.
Help! Somebody! I can't breathe.
I can't breathe.
Donnie, I'm gonna break down the door! Let me out! I can't Breathe.
- You good? - Mm-hmm.
This is so great.
After everything, you know? It was really hard to talk to Ruby.
Hard, but good.
I-I have so much work to do on myself.
But, I mean, we all do, right? We're not supposed to talk with the masks on.
Right, but I was wondering, since you're the expert, if there was a healthier way for me to redirect my anger.
Respect the mask, Mel.
- Sure, but - And also respect my intelligence.
We're talking about me, we're not talking about you.
- We had a deal.
- No, I wasn't Mask.
- But - Shh! Hey, Mel, so there's been a slight issue, um One of my doodles came to life, and then there was a ruckus, and then your lights went red for a second, and I'm pretty sure no one is in danger, but now The conch is The conch is in pieces, and I just, I just need to make sure you're okay, so What's the point? You're not gonna get this message anyway.
Hey, don't worry, I'm I'm gonna fix this, okay? I promise.
Hm Hi, there.
Excuse me.
I'm looking for Roxie.
I'm hoping she can help me fix this.
- She expecting you? - Uh, no, but I - Then she's not in.
- Okay.
Been to friendlier bars in South Philly on days when the Eagles lost.
Maybe I could help.
Hmm? I've seen you around.
Was hoping we'd meet again.
Oh, right, I didn't recognize you with your pants on.
Seriously, I can help you.
That's a Summoning Conch, right? Or at least was.
Yeah, uh, here's the thing, I'm kind of on a tight time line, and I don't know you, and I don't put my personal business on the street with strangers, so Fair enough.
Name's Dev.
And you are? Very hard to impress.
What was that? It's like I was saying, I can help you.
I'm what's known as a Ghandarva.
The intersection of music and magic happens to be my sweet spot, so you might as well let me try, unless you got a better option.
I give.
We did not come all the way to a magical freaking spa to sit side by side like bitchy statues.
I told you how I proposed to a wonderful woman, and she ran away screaming.
So, please, just let me in.
All right, third strike.
I'm out.
Okay, I'm-I'm sorry.
I just, I want to make things right.
Right? You want to fix broken Maggie.
Just like Jordan.
Cross me off your to-do list, Mel.
I am a person.
I'm not a project.
That is not fair.
You attacked a human.
That is so bad.
He was harassing me.
And I was It's okay.
I am not here to judge you.
I don't want to talk about it, Mel.
If you want to help me, just Leave me alone.
- I'm going home.
- Good.
I'm staying right here, where you're not.
Finally, some peace and quiet.
No, no.
All right.
Okay, can we just speed this up, please? You know, um, magic like this is more of an art than a science.
You should know all about that.
What do you mean? That searching look in your eye, trying to pry beauty and meaning out of everything around you.
Every artist has it.
Uh, no.
Okay, you get what art means to me, and then You get me.
And, um then I'm in trouble.
So, can we can we just Professionally speaking, - what is your power? - Oh, um - I'm a manifester.
- What? You're a manifester? Then what are we messing with this for? You can just draw a new one.
Uh, you could draw anything.
Yeah, okay, well, clearly, you don't know squat about manifestationing, and I don't really have time to explain it to you, so can you just get to it.
Oh You're a newbie.
You're very lucky you ran into me.
I can help you with your real problem.
The conch doesn't need fixing, you do.
And what do you mean by that? What I mean is, if you want this done fast, pick up your pen.
I'm here for the neck and shoulder massage.
Okay to proceed? Yeah, of course.
Don't worry.
You're in good hands.
Close your eyes if you want to feel like You're the only one in here Singing Like Harry said "Embrace the magic.
" I'm embracing the magic.
This barely works when I need it to, and it never works the same.
I mean, it basically only works when I don't want it to.
'Cause you're thinking too much.
Okay, well, you're doing too little.
- Give me your hand.
- Why? Can you trust me for, like, one second? - Please.
- Okay.
Now What do you feel? A martini glass.
I know it's a martini glass, but what do you Feel? In your heart? Artists like us, we don't just create from what we see and think, but from our experiences.
So, yes, you're right, this is just a martini glass, but that's only half of it.
I want you to draw a martini, but this time, don't just think feel.
Hello? Anybody? I just want to get my things.
Good to know customer service sucks everywhere.
So much heavier than you look Okay.
Remember the anticipation of the drink.
The first taste on your lips.
The sensation of the vermouth as it hits the back of your throat.
I, um I've never manifested anything without the drawing coming off the page before.
And now, the final test.
What? Oh, no, no, no.
Please don't do that.
Last time someone tried one of my creations, it-it turned badly.
Like, they turned two-dimensional - bad.
- Yeah, because you hadn't met me yet.
Is it? What what's happening? - Oh, no.
- Dev! Help! No, no, no.
This has way too much vermouth in it.
What the hell? See? I told you nothing bad would happen.
- Oh, no.
- Oh, no.
- Oh - Um I jinxed it, didn't I? I think so.
Should we get out of here? E-Even for me, that was probably one martini too many.
Dude, I finally got my power working, and now I can't switch it off.
Well, maybe deep down inside you don't want this moment to end.
Oh, no, I really do.
Especially since I'm no closer to having a working conch.
All right, but you got to admit, things are trending in the right direction.
You're beginning to master your power, and you made a new friend.
That-that was a mistake.
I'm really sorry.
That's how you stop it.
Who are you? It says your sister was supposed to be here.
Will she be joining? Oh No, I-I don't I don't think so.
Siblings, right? They never do what they say they're going to.
Tell me about it.
You know, she said we were coming here for some relaxation.
Do you know what's not relaxing? Discussing and dissecting how you went off the deep end.
Well, you don't seem nuts to me.
Thanks, uh Robert.
You're the second Robert I've met today.
Okay, moving on to your scalp.
You know, I know she's just trying to help, but We're kind of out of practice with the whole Sharing and talking thing, and This isn't like, "I, you know, "borrowed your sweater and got salsa on it.
" This This is serious.
I abused my power.
I've just been angry all the Yeah, I've been angry all the time, since Anyways Now we're dealing with a real psycho, and I'm acting like him, which is just disgusting Ow! Oh.
I'm so sorry about that.
Come on.
What are you doing? Oh, Ms.
Uh, how can I help you? Have you been enjoying yourself? What is in the bag? What bag? This bag? There's nothing in this bag.
Oh, no, no, no.
Ah This isn't what it looks like.
Okay, fine, this is exactly what it looks like.
I just want you to have a five starfish experience.
You need to tell me what is going on right now.
You're gonna stay right here.
I'm gonna get some matches and then you're gone, okay? Where are the extra ones? Merrow's Spring.
That's where Mel and Maggie are.
What? Who-who did you say? So the rumors are true.
You're the new Charmed One? Uh, I can't do this right now, dude.
You know, there are, like, theories out there about you.
Like you're some sort of Charmed One puppet meant to keep them in power.
Some people say you're not even related.
I-I don't think that.
You don't seem like one of them.
What the hell's that supposed to mean? - Uh - You know what? Never mind.
That red light means that Mel or Maggie are in danger.
And I'm the only one who can help if I can figure out how to get this damn thing working! - Okay.
Let me.
- No! Don't! What the hell did you do? There's got to be a circuit box here somewhere.
Anything I can do? Obviously not.
Only witches are supposed to touch the board, not randos who can't take a hint.
Damn it.
I had one job to do, and I blew it.
You need three pinches of henbane, six teaspoons of red salt and a dash of mugwort.
It's a reconfiguration potion.
It fixes objects back to their original state.
It should help with the board.
And the conch, too.
You could have fixed the conch this whole time? I was kind of hoping to get to know you first.
To get to know me? Okay, dude, I like having a good time, but not at the expense of people who trust me.
- Yeah, honestly - People who count on me! I honestly didn't realize how dire the situation was.
- What's wrong with you? - You're so cool, and the more we talked, the more things snowballed, and I'm sorry.
You said henbane? Yeah.
Listen, I'm still pissed at you, but I need your help, so you're gonna come and help me.
I am so sorry.
It's just, there's never been a death at the spa before, so of course it happens on the day the actual Charmed Ones are here.
I guess I panicked, and Please shut up! Maggie? Please don't vanquish me! What? No.
We'll figure out what happened here.
But first, I need to make sure that my sister's okay.
Oh, yes, of course.
And I can help with that.
According to the schedule, Maggie should be in the aromatherapy room.
- And where is that? - It's just down the breezeway, third door to the left, but, uh, fair warning.
Our aromatherapy room is a little different.
It uses scents to bring people back to a needed happy memory.
So when you do enter, you will be in Maggie's session, and it may be Personal.
Hello there.
Maggie? What the hell? Mel, where the hell are you? I'm right here.
I think they're ready.
Are you the real you? Or was the you that passed through me? I'm me.
Oh, thank God you're okay.
Are you okay? I was just watching us from four years ago, you know, before all the witch stuff.
We were so busy, and we thought our problems were so big, but we always found time to raid the fridge.
And make the most monstrous garbage nachos imaginable.
I'm pretty sure that's why I decided to go vegan.
I-I'm sorry for what I said earlier.
I don't want you to leave me alone.
But last night, I lost control.
I hurt a man.
I felt his nose break.
I mean, the sound he made was Now I have a court date in a week.
And I knew that telling you would mean I'd have to face it, and I wasn't ready.
But I guess now I'm glad I'm telling you because you can help me through it.
And I'm here to help with the whole Ruby situation.
But just promise me we'll share all the stuff, not just the trauma.
I want to, like, do your hair and gossip about stupid reality shows.
I just really want to be with my sister.
You know, I know it can't be exactly how it was, but maybe it could be close.
Hey, why'd you come back here? Well, there's no easy way to say this, but There's been a murder.
What? Someone died, and you didn't immediately say something? Well, you were having a moment.
Step away from the fountain, and What was that? Stay back! For your safety, please.
Donnie, get these people out of here.
Something's definitely not right.
- Sure doesn't smell right.
- Oh! - What the hell - Phew! - is going on? - I don't know.
Someone must have tainted the spring because the bloom, our pride and joy, looks and smells like a nightmare.
Oh, just when I thought things couldn't get any worse.
First Robert dies, - and now - Did you say "Robert"? He just gave me a massage.
Uh-hmm-hmm, uh-hmm-hmm, hmm Hmm, hmm, uh-hmm-hmm.
Okay, if this doesn't work, and you're messing with me again, I'm gonna manifest an anvil over your head.
So, we gonna save the day now or what? No.
There's no more "we.
" - I got to go.
- Okay.
- Now.
- Right, well, then, till next time Oh, I didn't get your name.
- It's Kaela.
- Well, if you need me, Kaela, you know where to find me.
Okay, y'all, I'm coming.
Right this way.
- Thank you.
Please remain calm.
- I'm gonna have to take at least four showers.
I can't believe this Tally-weirdo had his hands all over me.
The lamia, the leprechaun, and now here? How does he know where to keep finding us? I don't know.
But I know that when I do find him I don't I don't feel so good.
Hey, it's okay.
We got you.
Oh, my God.
What the hell is that? What is going on? Someone poisoned the water lily.
It's shooting thorns.
I'll stay here and help him.
You go get the Tallyman.
Are you sure? Positive.
I think I've beaten up enough people this week.
What in The Little Shop of Horrors? Hey, you! What the hell? Mel? Maggie! Kaela? What are you doing here? I saw your light, and-and it went red, and I broke the conch.
We'll talk about that later.
Just get over here, stay down.
What's going on? Oh, you know, you try to relax for a day, have a Mai tai, get a foot massage, and then, the Tallyman poisons a magical spring, and you're under attack from a killer plant.
Am I right? I got to get to those bath bombs.
If I can do a purification incantation over them, lob them into the spring, it might counteract the Tallyman's poison.
Though I might die in the process.
I have an idea.
I'm in the Tallyman's memory.
Come on.
You can do it.
I I can't.
Listen, this is our power.
We can stop any mechanical object, and it can't hurt us.
It defines you as a gremlin, and there's no way that my little brother doesn't have it.
Watch me.
What the hell is this? Your turn.
I know what I have to do.
Great use of color and space, but how is this helping us? Just wait for it.
You need a lot of bath bombs, I'll get you a lot of bath bombs.
Yes! Yes! That's enough.
- Let's do this.
- You know the Purification Incantation? I did a little light reading in the command center.
Hoc expurga ad omnia Mala pugnanda.
- Ready? - Yeah.
Oh, my God.
If this works, it should reverse whatever he did.
It's-it's never worked for me before, and-and Mom says Don't listen to her.
You were a baby, right? Now you're 18.
You're a man.
You just have to believe in yourself.
I-I believe.
I believe! I-I believe! I believe.
What a disappointment.
This is a happy memory? Oh, God, what is he up to now? Hey.
You good? - Hey.
- Hey.
Most soothing day ever.
Hey, look, I love being a part of this, but I'm thinking maybe I should tap out of serious witch business.
Today, you guys left me alone for four hours, and I broke Mel's conch, shut down the witchboard, and accidentally let some guy into the command center.
I think maybe I'm not ready.
Screwing up is part of the process, trust me.
We need you.
Okay, well, there is another issue.
People are talking.
About? About where I came from, about who I am really, if I'm legit or not.
I know that I've been saying I don't want to look into my biological parents.
Which we respect that choice.
- Mm.
- I think maybe now I have to.
We'll figure out a way Together.
Are you sure? I mean, like, it could bring up some messy family secrets.
Everything about us is messy.
Exhibit A.
- Yes.
- It's a lot of chili.
More cheese.
Chili peppers, more cheese.
- Oh! - Oh! - Oh, Brynn's got our backs.
- What's up? I told her about our non-relaxing spa day, and she used the Marriott Bonvoy App to book us a vacation away from our vacation.
- Ooh.
No magical spring? - I am in.
Speaking of our zero-starfish-rated experience I can't stop thinking about the Tallyman.
I mean, he literally had his cold hands around me, and didn't do anything.
Maybe he was too afraid to take a shot.
He's not the boogeyman.
Seems like he doesn't have any power at all.
He's just a really angry gremlin with a grudge.
I saw that little gremlin's happiest memory, which was seriously messed up.
Total psychopath fuel.
So, what's his endgame? We'll figure it out tomorrow.
- Okay? Tonight, we're gonna have fun! - Mm-hmm.
Did you do that? D-Don't look at me.
That's the time it disappeared.
Earlier today, I was trying to stop time, and I thought I destroyed the clock, but Oh, my God.
I think I sent it through time.
Hey, did you see this? Is this real? I know.
I know.
You'd think I'd had enough of these, but I had a close encounter of the very confusing kind today.
Dunc, my man, question for you.
Have you ever met someone who is more and less and more than they appear to be? You can't be serious.
The Charmed Ones are disgusting.
It's so callous.
They just let that poor lamia die.
That's awful.
She tried to kill Kaela.
That's enough for me.
Oh! Hey, did you see that? And did you see what happened at the spa? They just sat there and laughed.
Maybe someone doctored those videos.
They could be fakes.
I never trusted them.
This can't be true.
You're so gullible.
The Charmed Ones are no heroes.
If you're not a witch, you're on your own.
Can we just have one nice night out without a tirade, please? Fine.
If you don't want to hear the truth, then that's on you.
It's shocking, but you know what they say.
Never meet your heroes.
