Charmed (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 10 - Curse Words - full transcript

Maggie and Mel fear Jordan's curse is alive and well. Macy and Harry confront unspoken feelings.

Happy birthday, Jordan.


There's cake? Swan,

you have outdone yourself.

It's gluten-free,
sugar-free and dairy-free.


He's been staring at me
all night.

I'm sure
he's only staring

at you because you've been
staring at him.

Yeah, for good reason.
All the men in his family die

at age 25, and he turns 26 in...
two hours and nine minutes.

Didn't you beat the curse
when you saved him

from Parker?

But what if that wasn't


I-I'm gonna go get some air.

That was... sneaky.


Speaking of sneaky,
look who's here.

He's gonna blow our cover.

I got this.

- ♪ Take it or leave it ♪
- ♪ Hey! ♪

♪ Fresh off the boat,
pick up the flow... ♪

Hey, Torito.

I didn't know you were invited.

Oh, well, you know,

I started to go a little
stir-crazy in the house,

- Hmm.
- so, uh...

Whose birthday are
we celebrating today?

Maybe it's yours.

But let's call it
a re-birthday.

A celebration of the great

Santiago Raymond Vera

rising from the dead
and going back on the grid.

I don't think that
that's such a good idea, Torito.

Don't call me that, Ray.

Then don't call me Ray.

I am your father.
You can show me some respect.

I'm happy to, as soon as you
contact your buyers,

like you promised.

The ones you sold
Mom's talisman to.

These people think
that I am dead for a reason.

They are extremely dangerous.

Believe me, I know.

Join you where?


Oh, wow.

Everything all right?


I'm just, uh, trying to keep
Julian Shea distracted.


Abigael. W-What...


Hey, let's go.

Ray's gonna set up
a meeting with his buyers

so we can finally figure out
who was behind the darklighter.

Jordan still has two hours.

I can't leave him now.
What if something happens?

Nothing is going to happen.

Season 02 Episode 10

Episode Title: "Curse Words"

That thing almost...

How did you...?

I just saw it
starting to wobble.

Wow. Okay. Uh...

That's some seriously
quick thinking.


I should probably
just head home,

start 26 fresh
in the morning.

Or-or you could, um,

you could stay here,
with me.

We could ring in
midnight together.

I know the cake is ruined,
but, um,

there's still beer.
And hummus.


Well, in that case, sold.

Oh, perfect. Okay.
I'll be right back.

Thank you.

Sorry. I have to do this.

I guess Ray and I are
on our own.

Maybe he's changed.

Really? Wow.



Any idea,
who wants you dead?

Suppose a better question
might be who doesn't?

The pallor of your skin

when you arrived suggests
the use of a Hellebore venom.

That's what I thought, too.

It's a good thing
you found us.

The only known antidote
is a lavender witch

hazel injection.

I'm sure
you're perfectly capable

of finding the
culprit yourself,

but if you'd like
some assistance,

I'd be more than happy
to escort you home.

It's not necessary.

Whoa. Whoa, take it easy.

Actually, if it's not
too much trouble...


Just, a word?

I'll be right back.

You can't go with her.

Look, I know
our relationship

with Abby has had
its ups and downs...

That's a generous way
of putting it.

We need her to stay in power
as the Demon Overlord.

A title she stole
by manipulating us.

But she saved Maggie.

And not a single witch
has been killed since.

It's in our best interest
to keep her safe

and close.

Well, I'm not
letting you go alone.

The Demon World
is a dangerous place.

Funny. I used to be the one
protecting you.

Well, now we protect each other.

My God.

This place,
this place is a gold mine.

Does everything with
you come down to money?


No, of course not.

I-I'm just saying,

from an archeological

this is quite
the find.

Did I ever tell you
about the time that I hid out

in an ancient
Akkadian crypt

while ISIS raided
our dig site in Iraq?


I was in there for three days...

Candela vestiga.

..trapped in the tomb
of Naram-Sin.

He was a king

- who thought he was a god.
- Oh, so you two

had a lot in common.


Uh, don't touch that.

Okay. What is it?

It's a potion.
Doesn't even work.


They are very happy to know
that I'm still alive

and are ready to meet,
in Reno.


Tell them that we will
be there in an hour.

In-in an hour? I...

I-It's gonna take us at least 30
minutes to get to the airport.

- Right?
- We have our own airport,

right here.


They didn't have
portals in Iraq?

Uh, M...


Portals. Yeah, of course.

Portals. Yeah.

A portal. Yeah, sure.

the crazy thing about tonight,

I kind of thought something
like this might happen.

What do you mean?

My family...

Uh, there's no rational way
to say this, but...

it kind of feels
like we're cursed.

The guys, on my dad's side,
at least,

they... or we...

All die at 25.

You know?

I-I mean, how,

you know, did they die?

If you don't mind me asking.


My dad, brain aneurysm.


car crash.

Granddad, Vietnam.

And that's
as far back as I know.

Wow. Um, I'm sorry.

I think it's secretly why I've
been trying to cram in so much.

Military, law school.

Part of me always thought

I might only get 25 years
to do it all, so...


living with fear... I get it.

Believe me.

I'm sure you do,

considering you're already dead.

It's a lot harder to fake
your own death nowadays,

what with
social media.

- Okay, I can explain.
- No,

I'm not asking you to.

I'm... sure you had
a good reason, Maggie.

Parker was obviously dangerous,
but that's none of my business.

That's yours.

But something weird happened

and I wanted to ask you
about it.

What's that?

The switch room back there.

The other day
you went inside,

and when I came after
you, you were... gone.

Like, poof.

First curses and now "poof"?

Maybe you should
lay off the edibles.

Ooh. Did you just get...

Uh, cold as hell?

Probably the thermostat?

Someone always turns up the A/C
when there's a party.

I'll get it.

Well, be-be careful.

You know, seeing as you're
cursed and everything.




Who are you?

What do you want?


Holy crap.

Spirit capture.

Spirit capture... Hawthorn.


31 degrees?

Spirit from the distant past,

from this world
you will be cast.

I send you back
where you were last,

to see you through
a looking glass.

Who's the
bad witch now?

♪ Well ♪

♪ Times is tough all over ♪

♪ But I ain't lying,
I ain't lying ♪

♪ Well, times is tough
all over ♪

♪ But I keep on trying,
keep on trying... ♪

So how's the love life?

You said they'd be here
at 11:30.

Oh, and it's 11:26, so...

relax, have your coffee, and
tell me about your girlfriend.

It's, uh-uh, Nikki,
right? Is it Nikki?

- Nikki?
- Niko.

Niko. And not that it's
any of your business,

but we broke up.

It's kind of hard to have
a stable love life,

given my family history.

Are you saying
that it's my fault

that you can't keep
a relationship?

I don't know.

My only experience with marriage
is having two people

lie to each other
about everything,

and then one of them ran away,

but not without stealing
a few things first.

Okay, that is not fair.

Your mother and I
loved each other very much.

We shared everything together.

You didn't know
she was a witch.

She didn't know
you were a thief.

I mean, my God...

They're here.

Now, look,

if these people
tried to have you killed,

then it's possible that they
know exactly what you look like,

so you just stay put, okay?

No matter what happens.

Good luck.

♪ Well, it's gonna be
the dark, dark days ♪

♪ Well, you know something else
and you know ♪

♪ Take heed, I ain't lying ♪

♪ Because I'm a smart... ♪

Like the new

I'm assuming you didn't choose
Seattle for the weather.

Oh, you know what they say:

"Friends close,

enemies closer."

And frenemies, well,
we don't exactly have

an instruction manual
for that, do we?

You really don't remember
which one you drank from?

No, and do be careful.

That bourbon cost more
than your entire wardrobe.

How about you stop micromanaging
from the couch, get up,

and help us.

I would, but I'm feeling
a bit weak.

Harry, would you mind
making me a cup of tea?

Yes, of course.


Would you mind
if I use the ladies room?

What's yours is mine,

or something
like that.

It's through the foyer.

How do you take your tea?

Milk. No sugar.

Here you are.

It's a lovely place.

Look, I'm sure

we can work this out,
witch to witch.

Jordan Chase must suffer

for the sins of his forebears.

But he had nothing to do
with any of this.

Look what the Witchfinder
did to me,

to all of us.

25 women called
this place home.

25 women who were rejected
by a world

that didn't
understand them,

or respect them,

or give a damn whether

they lived or died.

Here, they were safe.

Until he came along
and set flame to our sisterhood.

I'm so sorry.

That man was a monster
and deserves to be punished,

but Jordan doesn't.

- He would never hurt anyone.
- Yes.

Because I'm going
to make sure of it.

Well, if it isn't
dead man walking.

Yeah, well, you didn't

leave me much choice, Nadia.

Threatening me
and my family.

So what do you have
for me this time, Ray?

100% bona fide Cintamani prism.

I picked it up just outside
of Bodh Gaya in India.

This should settle
my debts.

The hell is that?

It's just a little toy
we've been working on.

Have you been to India?

It's, you know,

some of the world's
greatest cuisine.

Looks good.
We'll be in touch.

- Thanks.
- Let's go.

Yeah. That's, uh, right. Okay.

What the hell is this?
Some sort of tracker?

No, no, no, wait a...
wait a minute.

I don't know what
the hell you're talking about.

What kind of game do you think
you're playing?

- And... w-wait. Just...
- You should've stayed dead, Ray.

Would've saved us all
a lot of trouble. .


I don't know who
you're working for,

Ray, but this,

- it isn't working for me.
- Wait, just wait. Wait a minute!

I have something, like
the Talisman you were after,

it's from the same source,
okay? It's in my pocket.

Here you go.

Is that... amber?

Where did you get this?


- Ah!
- Leave him alone,

or the gun won't be the
only thing that I melt.

Back off!

Back off.


No, no, no, no, no.

Wait, wait, no.

Let them go.

You've already exposed
yourself enough

by using your powers like this
out in the open, so just...

Exposed myself?
You just gave them black amber.

What the hell did you
think you were doing?

Me? I wasn't the one that put
a tracker in that thing.

And you didn't even tell me.
You could've got me killed.

And for the record,

you told me that potion
didn't work.

what the hell is black amber?

Anyone else been in or out
of this apartment?

The Susans?

Anyone who could've had access
to your private belongings?

Well, you know I like

people having access
to my private belongings.

- Abigael, please.
- Harry?

Do you mind if I, uh,

have a word with Abigael?


Macy, I'm touched
you want some girl time.

Are you a big spoon
or a little spoon?

Cut the crap,

I know what you did.

Faked your own
assassination attempt,

brewed the antidote in advance.

Now you may have Harry
confused about who you are,

but I am
crystal clear.

Now tell me what the hell
do you want from us?


I don't want anything
from you, Macy.

Quite frankly, I was hoping
you would leave.

So you can be alone
with Harry.

You really think it's impossible
for me to actually care

for your Boy Scout
of a Whitelighter?

He's not exactly
your type, Abby.

He's a good man.

Well, what can I say?

Opposites attract.

And maybe he enjoys
being with someone

who actually appreciates
his goodness.

Instead of someone who wishes
he were just a bit darker.

Binding, binding spell.

I'm pretty sure that
only works on living witches.

Okay. Um, uncrossing...
uncrossing ritual.

That should send her back
to the spirit realm,

but you need three people
to do it.


This is bad.

Jordan? Jordan!

It doesn't seem to be
blowing cold air.

I-I need you to come
with me right now.




Who's the bad witch now?

- Swan is, uh...
- Come on!



Okay. We're good.

We're good?
No, no, no, no, no, Maggie,

we're definitely not good.

Swan's out there
like she's something out of,

The Exorcist.

I don't know whether we should
call the cops or a priest,

'cause I'm... I'm feeling
all sorts of weird right now,

and not the good kind of weird.

Okay. Jordan.


That curse. The one on you
and your family?

What if I told you it was real?

Come clean, huh?

What is black amber?

A powerful substance
that's now in their possession,

- thanks to you.
- Mel, when you

deal with people like this,
you got to have a plan B, okay?

Just to save your
life in a pinch.

I shouldn't have taken it.
I'm sorry.

Well, this turned out
to be a spectacular disaster.

We didn't even get
their license plate. No.

We didn't.

But I bet you
that camera did.

Come on.

It's got to...

She faked it?

Why on earth would she do that?

Oh, come on, Harry.

I saw the kiss.

You and Abby,
in the command center.

Macy, uh...

I mean, it was just a moment.

And now she's gone to
all these lengths

just so you'll
come to her rescue.

Like the good man you are.

So, do...
Do you want to go back in

and chat with
your demon girlfriend,

or can we go home now?

Oh, go home, of course.

Just give me a moment.

Do you recognize this?

No, I've never
seen it before.

But if they both had
the same tattoo,

it must mean something.

You crack this code,
you'll find out

who's behind
all of this.

Wow, this is huge.

Thanks for
catching that.

Well, I'm not that big
of a loser,

or else your mother
would've never married me

in the first place, right?

- Ray?
- Yeah?

What really happened...

all of those
years ago...

when you left us?

Your mom and I were professors
at the university when we met.

We were
young and... wild,

we were passionate...


Right. Of course.

Well, I was
devoted to my work.

Archeological digs
all over the world and,

well, your mother,
she was lonely.

She was raising a kid
all by herself.

Well, one day,
she fell back in love

with another man, and...

Maggie came into our lives.

So... you always knew.

I did, yes.

We tried to make it work.

We did, we did.

knowing that her heart

belonged to another man,
well, that just... broke mine.

Then I started
drinking more,

and ultimately I strayed, too;
I'm not very proud of that.

And the rest, well...

the rest is, as they say,
you know...


Yeah. History.

Okay, so...

130 years ago,

my great-great-

Lawrence Mortimer Chase,
burned down the Tulipe Asylum

that stood here because...

He knew what it really was.

A safe space for

- Witches?
- And while she was dying,

one of those witches
put a curse on Lawrence

and the entire
Chase lineage,

condemning all the men
to die at age 25.

And I take it that witch...

Is currently possessing Swan.

But I think that if you can
survive the next 17 minutes,

the curse will officially
be broken.

This is the most insane
thing I've ever heard.

And yet, it's the only thing

that seems to make
any sort of sense.

How the hell
do you know all this?

Speaking of insane...

Look, the truth is,
my sisters and I, we're...


That can't be good.

That's weird.

Where's it coming from?

Hello, Visionaries.


what the hell?


What the hell?

Abigael, you and I

can never be.

For all the reasons
you already know.

You're a demon.


But the other
part of me...

...the witch, is very real.

You bring out the
best in me, Harry.

I see you for
who you are.

Screw the darklighter.

In my eyes,
you are whole.


Just got a text from Maggie.

We've got to go. Now.

Wait, so Swan is possessed by...

A very upset ghost-witch

who wants to kill... him.

What is this place?

Oh, I think you're gonna need
a drink for that, young man.

Um... so we'll explain
everything later.

But for now,
just hang tight.

That thing up there...

Way above my weight class.

Oh, and um...

I'm gonna need your ring.

Whatever helps.

You scared the crap
out of me!

- I'm sorry.
- People, stay focused.

We're doing
the uncrossing ritual.

That thing may
look like Swan,

but... she's a
crazy-ass killer.


Bring Jordan Chase
to me now,

before I burn this miserable
place to the ground.


You mean like he did?

The one who "set flame
to your sisterhood."

If you want to become
the very thing you hate,

then by all means kill me.

But if there's any
witch left in you...


..let him go.

He should not pay for the sins
of Lawrence Mortimer Chase.

He's a kind and decent man.

And he wants you
to have this.

My ring. Oh...

I'm ready.

Ad spiritus mundum,
redite numquam.

Ad spiritus mundum,
redite numquam.

Ad spiritus mundum,
redite numquam.

Thank you...

for sparing him.

And us.

I wish I could tell you
that it's over,

Margarita Vera,

but a witch's curse is not
so easily broken.

What else do I have to do?

Not you, him.


the curse isn't
broken until...

You balance the scales
of justice.

That was her direct quote.

What does that mean?

She didn't say.

I guess it's for you
to figure out.

I know it's a lot.

So it's okay if you
have questions.

What about flying broomsticks?

It's not a thing.

Pointy hats?

Only on Halloween.


Good for drinking,
not for melting.

Witches and humans?

What about them?

Are they allowed to...


they can, but it's...

it's complicated and...

- it rarely works out.
- ♪ Help me to see clear... ♪

But they can be friends?

They can.

♪ Leave a light... ♪

My neck.

What did I drink?

Oh, you know, the usual.

Wine, beer. Spirits.

Come on, Swan.

I'll drive you home, yeah?

Come on.

Up, up, up, up, up.

Oh, yes, yes, yes.

Thank you for a...

memorable birthday.

I haven't been this
sore since I tried Pilates.

♪ Ooh, ooh ♪

♪ Leave a light ♪

♪ A light on at the door. ♪

I should get going.

Oh, uh...
going where?

Make sure Abigael's
antidote took hold.

We did leave rather abruptly.

Harry, how can you go back there
after she manipulated you?

Well, we still need her
on our side, Macy.

You have feelings for her.

And if I did,
why would it matter to you?

Because she's evil.

I don't want you
to get hurt.

Macy, I'll take care
of my affairs,

you take care of yours.

Wait, what?
W-What is that supposed to mean?

It means there's
a handsome billionaire

awaiting your call.

I only went out with Julian

to stop him from demolishing
the command center.

I can't help it
if he likes me.

All right,
let's drop the pretense.

You know damn well
how I feel about you,

so please, don't make this
harder than it already is.

You should have what
and whomever

your heart desires, Macy.


You call this number.

It's my buddy ChooChi.

- What? - You've got a

- named "ChooChi"?
- Yeah.

He's a cop.
Well, was a cop.

But he is discreet,
and he'll help you track down

the owner
of that license plate.

You're just a wealth of
shady information, aren't you?

Eh, well, you know, some
fathers teach their daughters

how to fish, and I teach them
black market survival skills.

You can do both.

You know, if you want
to stick around.

Of course you can't.

Mel, I want to stay.

I do. I want to
stay right now,

just like I wanted
to stay then.

But it isn't always about
what we want, is it?

Well, now that they know
that I have access

to this black amber,
well, they're gonna

come after me
for it, and...

And it won't take them long
to connect you to us.

So just let me do the
right thing for once.

Okay, Torito?

You take care
of your sister.

You tell her I said goodbye.

Please promise me
you're gonna be careful.

These are very dangerous people.

It's nothing that
we haven't dealt with before.

I hope you're right.

It's alive.

Oh, my God.

Not God.
