Charmed (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 6 - When Sparks Fly - full transcript

Macy must fight a dangerous enemy to survive; Maggie's impromptu karaoke duet with Jordan may lead to answers about her powers. Meanwhile, Mel and Harry take a gamble on a demon who may know the Assassin's whereabouts.

Previously on Charmed...

HARRY: But you need to jump!

Go now. Do it!

MEL: There's a shape-shifter out
there who looks exactly like you.

I think I'm getting my powers back.

Something happened with Jordan.

I shook his hand, and in my head,

- I had this vision.

[CHUCKLING]: I love you.

- Where's Macy?
- She's not with you?

- MAGGIE: We saw her leave with you.
- It was him.

My darklighter.

The Elders used their acolytes
to separate us into two...

Whitelighters and darklighters.

And someone let the other half out.

The darklighter...

has a master.

Macy is missing, Harry.

- We need to try Absum Veri.
- MAGGIE: What is that?

A tracking spell.

The last witch to try Absum Veri

- was found not alive.

MAGGIE: Oh, my God.

MEL: Coordinates.

New York City.

Lower Manhattan. Tribeca.

If Macy's in danger,

why isn't a red light showing up?

- Because she's not in danger.
- How do you know that?

He has feelings for her.

How do you know that?

The darklighter...

He and I are the same person.

What's happening?

Who are you?

MALE VOICE: Your new master.

Now get up.



MEL: Macy, get over here.

- [PANTING]: Harry.
- Quick, I can orb again.

Long story. Tell them to go.





[CHUCKLING]: Ah, thank God.

[SIGHS] How are you feeling?


The-the last thing I remember...

The darklighter orbed you away.

We tracked you down, rescued you...

Thankfully before anything
untoward happened.

Why don't I remember anything?

You've been unconscious.

What? For how long?

Two days.

Two days?

We took turns at your bedside.

I was so afraid that I'd lost you.

Where's Maggie and Mel?


Sorry. Dinner.

A fillet.

You must be starving.

And I was just about to open this.

Château Montenau?

I know it's a bit much.

But it's a special occasion.

We're celebrating.

That you're safe.




Celebrate the good times.

That's what I always say.


You do, don't you?


What's the saying?

"From a little spark may burst a flame"?





Oh, that's the gratin Dauphinois.

I won't be long.

Everything all right?


I-I was just gonna get some air.

But, uh... but it can wait.

MEL: The tracking spell
revealed Macy's whereabouts...

New York City...

But there's not a red
light in the whole state.

Maybe he's used some
sort of cloaking device?

Or, like Harry said,
she's not in danger.

Because the darklighter
has feelings for her

and so does he, because they...

Share a brain or...

HARRY: We don't...

Share a brain.

We share memories.

And feelings.

I searched The Book of Elders.

Nothing provides any guidance here.

I've got a tiny bit
of cloaking serum left

and a bunch of other potions,

but none of them seem
particularly helpful.

Well, we know she's in Lower Manhattan.

I think we should just portal there.

New York's a big place.

Yeah, well, maybe I
can use my new power,

see if I can get a vision.

And we're back to touching Jordan again.


Look, I know it's a long shot, but...

I've had a vision that's come true.

Maybe, if I focus, I can
conjure up an image of her

and find where she is.

It may be a long shot, but it's

the only shot we've got right now.

I need you both to understand something

about the darklighter.

He may not kill Macy,
but he's capable of things

you and I cannot even fathom.

He's all id,

and his desires cannot
be underestimated.

We need to find Macy
by any means necessary,

before it's too late.

SWAN: Ready for the rando challenge?

I pick a song, and you sing it long.

- Bring it on, Swan.

How about a duet?

So rando, Maggie.

I'm in.

Who else is in for a rando duet?


And you continue to surprise.

Even myself.

What the...?


This isn't real.

Oh, my God.

- I guess you worked it out.

Things were just getting interesting.

I focused on finding
Macy and I saw something.

- What?
- A flash, an image.

It was too quick, he pulled
away, but it was something.

- Explain.
- I can't.

I don't know how it works
or why it works but it does.

Then you need to get him alone
and touch him everywhere.


We don't have any time to waste.

How is she supposed to do
that and not get arrested?


Any trapped-in-an-elevator spells

in that fanny pack of yours?

What gave me away?


I was hoping we could spend
some quality time together...

Before the inevitable
unpleasantness, yeah?

That's okay.

We can just skip right
to the unpleasantness.


Your powers have been neutralized.

I thought that would've
been obvious by now.

It's fetching, isn't it?

Just like your dress.

The one my lesser half
likes you to wear.

Don't talk about Harry.

Don't even say his name.


He's special to you, isn't he?

But I think you like me better.

You disgust me.

Oh, no, no, no. I don't
believe you, Macy.

I'm different from him.

And you like it.

What do you want?

What's the point of this...
Keeping me prisoner?

[LAUGHS] Prisoner.

Whatever gave you that idea?

Go ahead.

Call them.

Your sisters.


And that's the plan.

Use me as bait for them.

Yeah. That's gonna be a hard pass.


Well, fortunately,
there's always a plan B.

Et voilà.



Ah, there's nothing like
the New York City skyline.

And now our location is uncloaked.

Only a matter of time

before your sisters

and your Whitelighter friend find us.

Then why cloak us at all?

I thought we could get
to know each other.

Confining our relationship

to your dreams was getting tedious.

Oh, don't worry.

Your sisters will be here soon.

And this will all be over.


Are you sure about this?

It's a disruptor potion
from The Book of Shadows

I've been experimenting with.

It should fritz out the elevator.

Last time we experimented,

we almost got eaten by a demon hound.

Go time.


Hey, wait up.

Sorry to bother you.

It's just I left my
keys upstairs in the gym

and it's-it's locked.

- Could you, um...
- We have dinner reservations.

It'll only take a minute, yeah?

Yes. Yep, yep. Just-just one minute.

SWAN: Everyone stay very calm.

I'm sure the lights
will be on in a minute.

Oh, no. Must be a power outage.



Lola says it's affecting
the whole building.

- Really?
- Yeah.



What's up with you tonight?

[SCOFFS] Nothing.

Busting in during karaoke.

I like to sing.

Mm. And now. Now, you're...

I'm freaking out.

- I'm afraid of elevators.
- Mm.

So could you just hold my hand?

Dammit, it's not working.

I-I-I'm just, I'm still nervous.

Could I try your other hand?


Of course.


What just happened?

Well, the good news
is is that it worked.

A little bit too well.

I knocked out the power
sources up here and...

Down there.

Well, power is power,
regardless of the source.

The question is, how do we get to...

Schmitty's on the Lower East Side.

You're not the only one
who's been experimenting.


I'm getting stronger every day.


As ever.

Come on, Whitelighter.

You got this.

[GASPS] - Oh.

Are you okay?

It worked.

I orbed another person,

but it's taking its toll.

Sooner or later, we are going
to get our powers back, Harry.


Looks like your sister just did.



You want to tell me what's going on?

All the touching,
pawing at me like I'm...

Like I'm one of the
Beatles or something.

Maybe I just like you.


Um, I know my behavior seems...

Strange... sometimes.

And I can't explain everything, but...

What I can tell you is...

There's a man and he came for us.

Me and my-my sisters.

We got away, but if he finds us...

He'll hurt you.

Worse. Probably.

My turn to ask questions.

[CHUCKLES] Ask away.

That ring...

Where did you get it?

saw the darklighter.

MAN: You got a lotta nerve

Move one more muscle

Whoa. We don't want any trouble.

You want a warmer welcome,
give me my money, Jimmy.

You can't cheat a demon
and expect to live.

I think you've got the wrong person.


I held up my end,

helped you deliver your deliverables,

set you up in your swanky place.

Now pay up, Jimmy.

- Jimmy.
- Unless you're telling me

there's someone out there
that looks exactly like you.


You'll get your money

when I'm good and ready to give it.

Now, take this witch to my swanky place.

Where you set me up.

Why don't you take her?

You live there.

Oh, you know...

I have my reasons.

Money first.

Then I'll take her.

I don't have it on me.

Then we play for it.

- Play?
- Poker.

You win,

debt's clear, and I deliver
this one free of charge.

And if you win?

I get my money...

And her as well.


Jimmy's in.

Jimmy's in.


MACY: What are those devices?

I've never seen anything like them.

Not your business.

So much firepower in one place,

and yet you yourself have none.

Someone's pulling your strings.

Giving you orders.

You could have turned
me over to your boss.

Or... or is it your master?

But you decided to set
up a nice little dinner.


I had this idea you and I
could deliver the other ones.

Deliver them.

To who?


Oh, come on.

You said you wanted us to
get to know one another.

Where did you come from?

I want to know everything about you.

I was a prisoner.

Your Whitelighter,

- They ripped me from his body.

My body.

I was the leftovers tossed
into the garbage bin.

For what felt like an eternity.


That sounds horrible.

It's criminal, is what it is.

Then someone came along

and released me, gave me my body back...

And I felt something.

Hot, cold.

Pain, pleasure.

And desire.

I'll never give that up again.

And the person who released you...

Now controls you.

All I have to do is deliver
the power they want...

And I'm free.

And we...

uh, my sisters and I, Abigael, the Kyon,

we are that power.

He wants to collect us.


I never said "he."

I think I can give you
exactly what you want.

Without involving my sisters.

Your freedom...

And me.

I'm listening.

First I'm gonna need you to untie me.

MAGGIE: Family heirloom?

Yeah. It, uh...

It belonged to my

Lawrence Mortimer Chase, apparently.

It's so unusual-looking.

My dad inherited it.

My mom gave it to me after he died.

I was only four, but...

As soon as it fit, I started wearing it.

I'm sorry.

Death. It's part of life.


My... parents died,

both of them...

Same year.

This year.


Didn't realize all that
happened this year.

If you need anything, uh...

A place to stay...

Someone to throw a punch or two...

I'm your guy.

[CHUCKLES] Thank you.


Sorry. Uh...

Huh. It's Lola.

Guys! Swan's on TikTok.

We're making the best

here at SafeSpace Seattle.

Who's up for some kombucha pong?


[LAUGHS] Well, at least
someone's having fun.

Oh. You mean being trapped in
an elevator with me is not fun?

I didn't mean it like that. Sorry.

No. You're a mic hog.
