Charmed (2018–…): Season 4, Episode 2 - Episode #4.2 - full transcript

(Game chiming)

(Game over noise)

(game restarts)

(Game chiming)

Get down.

I don't know
about this.

Dude, this isn't exactly
my idea of fun, either.

But these dicks
illegally towed my baby

- from an overnight zone.
- Fine.

But if I'm gonna do this,
then you can at least tell me

where you disappeared to
after your party.

I didn't disappear.

I went home
with someone, okay?

Who? Stephen?

- No.
- Don't tell me that you got

back together with Amy...

Can we just focus on the felony
that we're about to commit?

(phone buzzing)

That your mysterious someone?

Hey, Michaela. It's Mel.

Uh, Vera.

Again. I know it's late,

but I just wanted to make sure
that you got my message.


(groans) I just...

I'll explain everything later.
Okay? But first,

we need to figure out a way
to distract that security guard.

Seriously? Your slingshot
from when you were ten?

Her name is Slingy,
thank you.

(Glass shatters)

I mean...

what if we really are sisters?

I mean, think about it.
I'm 28, you're 26.

My mom could have
easily had another kid

before I was... old enough
to remember.

I know, this is a lot
to take in, but...

don't you want to know
the truth about...

who you are?

And you mocked Slingy.

No. I mocked you,

'cause you're a grown-ass
woman with a slingshot.


Now, if you're done
playing Stranger Things,

- can we just get the hell out of here?
- Okay.


(Engine sputters)

(Engine sputters)

- GUARD: Hey.
- Ooh.

Get out of the bus! Now!

Oh, no, no, no. This
can't be happening...

Dude, that was a gun.

- Like, a real gun.
- Yeah.

- GUARD: I'm not playing around.
- Okay.





Think, think, think...

What the hell?


Get away!
The hell?

Where did all those
butterflies come from?

Oh, get off me. (Grunts)

- What the hell's going on?
- I have no idea.

- Let's just get the hell out of here.
- (engine starts)

(Crashing, clattering)



Someone's been a bad witch.


- (Growls)
- Patience, Seymour.

We'll find her.

And when we do...

(snarling, growling)

Season 04 Episode 02

Episode Title: "You Can't Go Home Again"
Aired on: March 18, 2022.

(Phone ringing)

(Switches alarm off)

(Sighs, groans)


That demon has
a pretty good left hook.

Had a pretty good
left hook.

(Wry chuckle) True.

You doin' okay?

I know this whole
Kaela thing's gotta be...

pretty disappointing.

I'm fine.

She doesn't want to be
a part of this whole thing,

and... I can't exactly blame her.

Especially after...


I am just gonna focus
on the things I can control.

Like... the
demon population.

And my thesis.


I'm just going to class.

Deal's a deal.

We slay all
the demons you want,

but we always wear trackers,

so we can find each other
if things go sideways.

Fine. But just so we're clear,

we're doing this so
I can save your ass

when you get in trouble,
not the other way around.


Whatever you say, boss.

♪ I need to get
a little bit closer ♪

♪ Need to get
a little bit closer... ♪

Happy now?

♪ To you... ♪


(Phone buzzing)


♪ Closer to you ♪

♪ To you... ♪

Hey. Chloe.

♪ Closer to you... ♪

What's up?

(Mel sighs)

♪ Closer to you ♪

♪ You could start a fire ♪

♪ With the tip
of your tongue... ♪

Drop it.

Geez. Don't sneak up
on me like that.

What part of "don't contact
me again" was unclear?

She didn't
really mean that.

I can't believe I have
to explain "no means no"

to a gender studies

Maggie, how can you be okay
with this?

She might be our sister.

Yeah. According to your
insane conspiracy theory

where Mom had another affair

and didn't tell Ray about it

and ditched her baby at
a fire station in Philly.

Mom loved cheesesteaks.

Are you even hearing yourself
right now?

The Power of Three
worked with her.

We all saw it.

It has to mean something.
I know.

But if we come on so strong
that we scare her off for good,

we're not gonna know
what that is.

So please just
give her some space

until she's ready.

Fine. No more calls.

Or texts.

- Or DMs.
- Okay.

What did I just say?


Okay, well...

Have fun. And be safe.

You, too.

[♪ ♪]



I'm sorry, not yet.

Can't serve alcohol
before 11:00.

Harry. We got a problem.

I'll say.

You know Annie,
the pixie I told you about?

Chloe's sister?

Yeah. She's dead.

And it has something to do
with this.

She got it from someone
called the Tallyman.


As in the song?

What? You know.

♪ Tallyman, Tallyman,
he keeps count ♪

♪ Tallyman, Tallyman,
don't step out ♪

♪ If you're good ♪

♪ Then he pays, if you're not ♪

♪ Then he slays. ♪

Oh, don't give
me that look.

We can't all sound like
the bloody Phantom of the Opera.


I am sorry about Annie. Really.

But I'm in no mood
to go around hunting bogeymen

from a magical nursery rhyme.

Harry, wait.

The Tallyman might not be real,

but there's still someone
out there hurting people.

Now, I don't know why I
was given these powers.

What my role was supposed to be
in all this.

But I know it can't be
to just sit back

and do nothing.

I thought you of all people
would get that.

I have plenty

of fufu powder.

And shito.


Mom, I'm sorry,
I really don't have time

to talk about food right now.

Knock, knock.

(Door closes)
Oh, uh, I got to go.

Okay. Love you, too. Bye.


So, Carlos said
we just need to bring booze

and dessert to Framily Dinner,
so I picked up, um...


Why are you acting weird?

- I'm not being weird.
- Yeah, you are.

You're acting

super weird right now.

Okay, look,

I got to tell you something,

but you got to promise
not to freak out, okay?


You know those butterflies
last night?


That was me.

My powers.

I'm... I'm a witch.

Okay, wait, is there...

- Is there a punch line coming, or...?
- No, no.

Brynn, this is for real.


(clears throat)

Just give me a second.
I can do this. Okay.

It's back, isn't it?


Your leukemia.

What? No. No.

The headaches.
The-the weird dreams.

(Voice breaking):
Whatever this is. Delusions.

- (Chuckles): I don't even know.
- No. Hey.

Hey, uh...

I was just messing with you.

- I was just messing with you.
- What?

That was a stupid joke.
I'm sorry.

- Oh, I really got you. I'm sorry. I...
- (chuckles softly)

Stupid. I'm seriously fine.

Totally fine.

maybe we should skip dinner?

What? No.

Look, dude, my life's
been super complicated,

and I just want one normal night
with my friends. Please?

Okay. Yeah, sure.

Uh, one normal night
coming right up.

(Both chuckle)


Drive through my gate...


Geez, lady.

You scared the hell
out of me.

Can I help you?

What the...?

What was that?

(Vehicle approaching)
Hey! Lady!

Hey! Lady, I'm talking to you!

(Engine turns off)


I know you're hungry, Seymour.

But he's not the one
we're after.


A little something
to tide you over

till we find her.

(Snarls, growls)


(Phone chimes)


(Witchboard chiming)
Oh, God.


(line ringing)

Come on, Maggie, pick up.

Hi. This is Maggie.

- I can't come to the phone right now...
- Screw it.


KAELA: Brynn, either pair
of shoes is fine.

Come on, we're gonna be late.

Mel? What are you
doing here?

You're in danger.

Yeah. From a crazy stalker lady

who won't leave me alone.

I'm serious. That big map
that you saw back in Seattle?

It tells us whenever a witch
is in trouble,

and your light just went off.

Oh, how convenient.

I don't return
any of your 12 voice mails,

and suddenly I'm in danger.

Michaela, I'm trying to help.
I don't need help.

This life of yours with a threat
around every corner?

I don't want it.

Okay? I have a life
with incredible friends

and a family
and my parents who raised me,

- who, by the way, are the only people...
- Crap.

...who are allowed
to call me Michaela.


I'm so sorry, Kaela.

Boundaries are not
her strong suit.


Please, just be careful.

- Okay.
- And just have a great night.

What the...?

Who were you talking to?

I was just giving directions
to someone who is very lost.

- You ready?
- Yeah.


Before you give me a lecture,
there was

a red light on the witchboard.

Yeah, I know. I saw it
after I got your call.

Last I checked,
it's possible to protect someone

- without going full stalker.
- Hey.

I would want to know if there's
something evil coming after me.

Yeah, but is there?

What are you saying?

The witchboard already tried
to play matchmaker

with us and Kaela once before.

Maybe it's doing it
again, trying to...

trick us into coming here.

And you're gonna bet
Kaela's life on a maybe?


you can go if you want,

but I am not letting Michaela...

Kaela... out of my sight
until I know she's safe.

Fine. I'll case the area.

But while I'm gone,
just please promise me

Keep my distance. Yeah.

Got it.

What is that?

She won't even know
I'm watching.

I realize how that sounded.

You sure you're okay with us
looking through Annie's stuff?

I want to stop whoever
did this to her,

before they hurt
anyone else.

How do you do it?

Do what?

Keep going...

when a part of you is gone.

I'll let you know when
I figure it out.

Harry, look.

Maggie told me about this place.

The Blue Camellia.

The magical bar that
Mel's been frequenting.

From what I hear,

it's a bit rough around
the edges for a pixie.

She would never go
to a place like that.

Unless she was looking
for something.

Like a special coin.

(Music playing indistinctly)

Propinqua quod longe.

Much better.

Boxed wine, bean dip...


How is that better than
being a Charmed One?

Mel, pick up your phone.

I've been looking for danger
for the past hour,

and I still haven't
found a...



Can I help you?

You don't happen to know
the owner

of this motor coach, do you?

Who are you?

Just a concerned citizen.

Have we met before?

I think I'd remember.

Now, what are you?

That depends on you,
I suppose.

Help me find the witch
who owns this bus,

and I will be nothing more
than a brief

and fleeting memory.


I can be something
much, much worse.




(Indistinct chatter)
(music playing)

Hard to believe this is where
Mel's been spending her time.

Beats getting your
ass kicked every night.

I can tell you that much.

Trouble in demon-hunting


I don't know, man.

Maggie's just so far away

No matter what I do,
I can't seem to reach her.

Well, she's still grieving.

Try to meet her
where she is.

What if she just
keeps drifting

further and further away?

Trust me on this, I wasted
too many moments with Macy

worrying about the future

instead of cherishing the time
we actually had together.


That's the first time
I've heard you say her name

since she died.

What are you boys drinking?

Double whisk...
Nothing for us.

But, uh,

we were hoping maybe you could
help us with something else.

Ever seen anyone around here
with a coin like this?

I serve drinks,
not information.

No, wait.

We work with Mel
and Maggie Vera.

The Charmed Ones.

Kiss-n-tell Mel. Mm.

Tell her she left
her tab open.



A friend of ours was murdered

by whoever's giving out
these coins.

Now, I don't know
about you,

but I've seen enough senseless
death and bloodshed

to last two lifetimes.

So do me a favor

and tell me where the hell
you've seen them,

because I know you have.

(Phone ringing)

Yeah? Mm-hmm.

You're the boss.

There's a regular here.
A leprechaun. Deals in coins.

He might be your guy.
Or he might not.


Oh, don't thank me.

Thank Roxie.

Come on, I am not
the worst dancer here.

I have moves.

You've got a move:
The Brynn.

(Both laugh)

I mean, hey, he's not wrong.

You get two drinks in the girl
and she's all, like...

Here it comes.


Do it with me.

( "Bailando" by Deluxxe playing)

Com e on,

There we go.

MAGGIE: Mel, Mel,
you were right.

She's being hunted by
some crazy old lady

with a monster in her purse.

Old-timey fashion?

Schoolmarm vibe?

Deadly pet tentacle?

Yeah. How did you...

It's called a Vittra.
I read about them

in the old Book of Shadows.

They were an ancient order

who protected
the secret of magic

by killing anyone
who showed it to humans.

I didn't think
there were any left.

Well, there's at least one,
and she is pissed.

That is not good.

You think?

Uh, where's Kaela now?

She's right over...

No, wait. Sh...

She was just here.

Oh, crap.

Guys, go. Go.

Go, go.
Bad butterflies. Go.



What the hell is going on?

[♪ ♪]

You had one job.

First you rip me

for calling her too much,

and now you're
freaking out because

I lost sight of her
for one second.

What is going on with you?

I am terrified, okay?
Of what?

The Vittra?
This. All of this.

That bringing in
someone else

into this... this life,
this sisterhood,

means the same thing
that happened to Macy

is gonna happen
all over again.

We couldn't stop

the destruction of
the sisterhood before.

Why should this time
be any different?

Maggie, look.

Murder-y Poppins is
in the building.

What was in those edibles?


(Sighs heavily)

I tried to tell you.
It's real.

(Chuckles) I'm a witch.

So you're not sick?


That's your first question?

You're my best friend.
I frikkin' love you.

Yes, that is my first question.

Although I do have, like,
400 other questions.

Yeah, you and me both.

Do you think that this could
have something to do

with your birth parents?


(fire alarm sounding)

Is that a fire alarm?

(Indistinct chatter)

Heard a rumor there's
a leprechaun around here

who might know a thing
or two about coins.

Who's asking?

What, you were expecting
a wee fella?

Roxie sent us.

I'm gonna cut to the chase,

This coin killed
a friend of mine.

A pixie.
And I have it on good authority

you had a hand in it.

I'm a lot of things, boyo,

but I'm no pixie killer,
just a middleman.

Mm. For who?

All I'll say is
some fella came 'round

Looking to score
some cursed gold.

Was offering a boatload for it

So I didn't ask
any questions.

Did he call himself
the Tallyman?

Didn't get a name.

Where can we find this fella?

I don't sell out
me customers, lads.

Bad for business.

Thanks for the whiskey,
but we're done here.

I wouldn't leave
if I were you, Frank.

Oh, yeah?

And why's that?

Because I poisoned that bottle.


You both drank
from it, too.

My God. Yeah, he's right.

Oh, if only there
were someone around

who could heal the poison
out of our systems, hmm?


Now, unless you want to die

an excruciating death,

start talking.

I don't know how to find him.

- It was a dead drop, I swear.
- Where?

At an old cabin in
the woods, outside Newport.


Now get the damn poison
out of me!

What poison?

See you around, Frank.



(Fire alarm sounding)

(Clicking tongue)

You've been
a very naughty witch.

Using your magic in front
of humans. (Clicking tongue)

Who the hell are you?

Your punishment.

(Cries out)

Back the hell off.
She's with us.

I'm afraid I can't do that.

Rules are rules.

No exceptions.

(Cries out)


You injured a human
with your magic.

What happened to
"no exceptions"?

That one wasn't supposed
to be here.

That's why I pulled the alarm.
She's the guilty one.


No, Seymour, please.

It was a mistake, Seymour.

Oh! No!

She needs a doctor.

No, she needs a healer.
And fast.

That leprechaun better not have
given us a fake address.

(Door creaking)

HARRY: Oh, this is definitely
the place.

Just a character from
a nursery rhyme, huh?

(loud click)

What was that?


Damn it.

Don't move.

Pressure switches
rigged to explosives.

I've seen them before
in Afghanistan.

If one of us takes
the pressure off...



Still no reception,

Of course, my bootleg
Whitelighter powers

don't include orbing.

If I could just reach you...


I could orb us both
out of here.

Or you could just
orb yourself out.

Well, that'd set off
the explosives.

Jordan, I know
I've been an ass lately,

but I'm not going anywhere.

Man, if I survived 26 years
of a witch's curse

just to die like this,
I'm gonna be so pissed.

If I don't die,
I'm gonna relish

every second I get with Maggie.

Try to meet her
where she is.

And I'm gonna do the same
with you.


Maggie's not the only one
still grieving, bud.

(Door creaking)


How did you...

I told you I'd use this thing
to save your ass.

We need you guys back
at the command center now.

My best friend is dying, and
we don't have a lot of time...

No, wait!

This place is wired to blow.
Don't move.

Okay, um...

Well, if there is
an "on" switch,

there's generally
an "off," so...

There. That's the disconnect.

Um, the question is,
how do we reach it?

Macy's telekinesis power would
be super handy right now.

So would Kaela's power
of manifestation.

You're like her, aren't you?

A witch.

Take care of her for me.

She may act tough,
but she needs people.

That is what
keeps her going.

(Breathing weakly)



- I can't do it. Hmm-mm.
- Yes, you can.

Do you have something
to draw with?

- Always, but...
- Here.

You're gonna draw on my jacket.
No, Maggie, you don't get it.

When I want to manifest
stuff, nothing happens.

But when I don't, poof!
All of a sudden

there's an apple, and your
cousin is a paper doll.

Kaela, you need to breathe.

Just do it.

Listen to him.
This is what he does.

Close your eyes.
Close them.

Visualize something that
can reach the switch.

Something familiar.


Something you know so well

you could sketch it
in your sleep.

Got it?

Mm, mm-hmm.


Draw it.



Now, open your
heart to magic.

It's a part of
who you are.

Your friend needs you.

We need you.

Because you...

You are a Charmed One.



Huh! You did it.


Duck, dude.

Hurry, she's fading.


It's not enough.

Come on. Come on.

Come on, B.

Come on. You're too stubborn
to go out like this.


Took you long enough.


Thank you.

All of you.

Well, this sure has been
a night to remember.

Hey, about that,
we were kind of hoping

you could, like, forget it.

Forget what?

You ready to go?

You're not coming, are you?

Look, this is something
I gotta do.

Not because I want to,
but because I need to,

for both our sakes.

Well, I expect daily texts,

okay, weekly FaceTimes
and regular visits.

Seeing as I'm just, um,
a big, freaky,

glowy circle away.



Are you okay?

Yeah. Hmm.

Thank you for saving her.
And me.

It's what we do.

And I'm sorry for
pushing you so hard

to join our screwed-up
little family.

I didn't even consider that

you might already have one
of your own.

It's okay. I get it.

If joining this fight
is what I have to do

to keep the people I love safe,
then I'm in.

You sure?

We don't want
to force you into anything.

Fate brought us together
for a reason.

And I'm not gonna lie, I...

I kind of want to see
what that is.

Between these cursed coins

a lot more seriously.


Sure you don't want to stay in

Not exactly ready
for the whole
