Episode Number: 178
[Scene: Phoebe’s loft. Piper blows open the door.]
Leo: Piper, you gotta keep it down. (Piper gets the Book. Leo turns the lights on. Piper sits down and looks through the Book. Leo opens a cabinet, takes out a bottle, and dabs it on Piper’s wounds.) Well, there’s nothing in the Book that can fix this.
Piper: No, there’s gotta be something.
Leo: There’s not. And they can’t undo what’s already been done. (He closes the Book.) Are you sure the boys are okay?
Piper: I’m sorry you had to come back to this.
(She rests her head on Leo’s shoulder.)
[Scene: Magic School. Billie runs into the black room.]
Billie: Dumain. (He turns around.) Good, you’re still here.
Dumain: Billie, what happened? Where’s Christy?
Billie: Oh, she-she’s gone.
Dumain: What about the Charmed Ones?
(Billie shakes her head.)
Billie: Piper, Piper’s the only one left. I don’t understand, you said the Hollow would be enough.
Dumain: They got it too. They somehow found out you were going to use it against them, so they summoned it too. It must’ve split, infected you all.
Billie: I just want Christy back.
Dumain: You might be able to. You’ve got the power, Billie. You’ve projected yourself back into the past before, haven’t you? When Christy was young, when she was trapped in that cave?
Billie: Well, yeah, but I…
Dumain: Then why can’t you do it again? Only this time you can go back to change what was, to save her. You trust me, don’t you?
(Billie nods. Dumain smiles. She rests her head on him.)
[Scene: Victor’s Condo. Victor makes tea and drinks it. There’s a knock on the door. He burns his tongue.]
Victor: Mmm, damn. (He opens the door to find Piper.) Oh.
Piper: Hi, daddy.
Victor: Oh, sweetie, I’m so happy to see you. Wow. (Leo steps in.) Leo!
Leo: Hey, Victor.
Victor: You’re back? (They shake hands.) Well, I don’t believe it. This is good, right? (He closes the door.) I mean, everything worked out all right?
Piper: Um, maybe you should sit down.
Victor: No, I don’t want to sit down. What happened? What’s going on?
Piper: Well, Phoebe and Paige, um, they didn’t make it.
Piper: But it’s okay, I mean, I’m gonna fix it. I don’t know how, but I’m going to fix it.
(Victor sits down.)
Leo: Where’s Wyatt and Chris?
Victor: Uh, sleeping.
Piper: We need to, um, take them someplace, where nobody can find them so we can figure this out, do you understand?
(Victor shakes his head.)
[Cut to Bedroom. Leo sees his sleeping sons.]
Victor: How about the rest of the magical community? (Leo comes back.) W-what about that guy, uh, Coop?
Piper: How do you know about Coop?
Victor: Well, he was here yesterday, looking for Phoebe.
Leo: Who’s Coop?
Piper: Uh, he’s a Cupid…who took Phoebe to see her past loves.
Piper: So, maybe he can do the same for us. Coop? If you can hear me, I need to talk to you now.
Coop: Guys, if this is about Phoebe, she’s made it very clear to me about the way that she feels so…
Piper: Phoebe’s dead.
Piper: But if you lend me your ring, I think I can go back in time and save her. It can do that, right? I mean, you can go back in time.
Coop: Yeah, to follow love but…
Piper: Okay, so hand it over. (He gives her the ring.) Okay, what do I do? Uh, how does it work?
Coop: You, uh, just think about that person, and, uh…how much you love them. (Piper nods.) I-I gotta tell you, it doesn’t always work that way that you want it to, though, cause love, love isn’t practical, it’s-it’s emotional.
Piper: That’s okay. It’s all I’ve got.
Leo: I’m going with you. (He takes her hand.) I’m not losing you again.
Coop: Keep it simple. Just follow your heart to one of them.
(Piper closes her eyes.)
Piper: Phoebe. (They disappear and reappear in a bedroom at the Manor.) This isn’t right. (They hear voices and see Past Victor and Patty in bed, kissing. Piper gasps.) Oh, my God.
(Patty spots them and gasps.)
(She sits up and tries to freeze them, but freezes Leo. She clutches the bed sheet.)
Past Victor: What happened? Why didn’t she freeze?
Patty: I don’t know.
Piper: Probably because I’m your daughter!
(She turns away and covers her eyes.)
[Cut to stairs. Patty, Piper, Past Victor, and Leo walk down.]
Patty: You must be a pretty powerful witch, you know, to be able to come here from the future.
Piper: Oh no, it really didn’t have to do with me. It was Coop’s ring.
Past Victor: Who’s Coop, a future son?
Piper: No dad. Sorry, all girls.
Patty: Oh, you mean it’s just you and Prue, huh?
Leo: Maybe we shouldn’t tell them too much. You know, changing the past might change the future.
Piper: Well, we’ve gotta tell them something. I mean, how are we going to figure out why we’re here? Coop’ll fix it.
(She sees her parents holding hands and laughs. Patty laughs.)
Piper: I’m just not used to seeing you guys holding hands, let alone… (She points upstairs.) Never mind. (She turns and steps on a stuffed rabbit. It squeals.) Oh. (She picks it up.) Hey, I remember this. How old am I? I mean now, in your time.
Past Victor: Almost three.
Piper: So Prue would be five, and Phoebe…
Patty: Phoebe? Wait, who’s Phoebe?
Piper: Not born yet. (To Leo) I don’t understand how this happened. I was focusing on Phoebe, and it was supposed to take me back to when she would be alive again.
Leo: Well, maybe it did, maybe we just over shot it a little bit.
Piper: A little? Try thirty years.
(Patty puts a hand on her stomach.)
Victor: Wait a minute; I’m still a little new with the witch thing. So, what happened?
Piper: Well, we were trying to save Phoebe and Paige…
Patty: Paige? Do you mean we have another daughter?
(Past Victor and Patty smile.)
Piper: Yes, mom, you do.
Leo: But the point is-is they died…in a huge battle, and we were trying to go back in time to warn them.
Piper: But without the Power of Three, we had to use this.
(She points at the ring.)
Patty: Wait; did you say the Power of Three? Then, that makes you the Charmed Ones, right? (Piper smiles.) And you all came from me?
Piper: Well, yes, so…
Patty: So, if I’m the mother of the Charmed Ones, and we could find the grandmother, then maybe we’d be able to recreate the Power of Three, at least in theory.
Piper: (to Leo) Do you know what she’s talking about?
Patty: I’m talking about using our family magic…to get you to where you want to go, instead of that silly ring. Could that thing take us to her? I mean your Grams. Because it’d be faster than driving. (Piper hesitates.) Look, you can’t come barging in here from the future and tell me that two of my girls are dead without expecting me to help. So? Let’s get going! (Patty places herself between them.) Oh, I’ll be right back baby.
(She kisses Victor. Piper closes her eyes.) Piper: Hmm, Grams.
(Past Victor smiles. They appear in the parlor, but it’s different.)
Leo: What happened?
Patty: Where’s Victor?
(Piper sees the stuffed rabbit on the table is very old.)
Piper: Now where are we?
Old Woman: (from other room) Triple word score!
Old Man: (from other room) Hold it, that’s not spelled right.
(They go into the conservatory. An old couple sits at a table playing scramble.)
Old Woman: Sure it is.
Old Man: No, it’s not!
Old Woman: No? Is that an official challenge?
Piper: Uh, excuse me?
(The couple sees them.)
Old Man: How do you spell Zankou, with a Z or X?
Old Woman: That’s cheating.
Old Man: I’m not asking you, I’m asking…me. (He points at Leo. His jaw drops.) Well?
Old Leo: Ha! Told you.
(Old Woman groans and removes her pieces.)
Piper: Uh, are you…?
Old Leo: The future you and Leo, yeah. (He chuckles.) And we’ve been expecting you.
Old Piper: Yeah, I baked cookies.
(A plate of cookies sits on the table. Leo smiles. Patty smiles.)
[Scene: Manor – future. Piper, Leo, and Patty sit on the sofa. Old Piper sits in the chair.]
Piper: I just don’t understand how…
Old Piper: You were aiming for Grams, but you weren’t specific enough. So you came to the future, where you’re the Grams instead. (She chuckles.) And…here I am.
Piper: Wait a minute. I’m a grandmother?
Old Piper: Blows your mind, doesn’t it? Mom?
Piper: Uh, yeah.
(Old Leo enters with a plate and glass of water.)
Leo: All right, hold on, I don’t understand how you know all this stuff, and how did you know we would come?
Old Leo: Because fifty years ago, we were sitting there, where you’re sitting, talking to our future selves.
Old Piper: That’s why we were expecting you. Now, you sure you don’t want some cookies?
Piper: Uh, no. I think I’d rather have aspirin.
Old Leo: Like she said… (He gives Piper the plate with aspirin and the water.) We were expecting you. (He goes and sits next to Old Piper.) You remember when we were them? Oh, kicking butt, fighting demons.
Old Piper: Losing you, getting you back, losing you again, aye.
Old Leo: And it was all worth it.
Old Piper: Oh, you bet.
Patty: Oh, that’s so sweet!
Piper: Mm-hmmm, you know what? I’m just not quite ready for all of this. Besides, we need to get back…
Pipers: To save Phoebe and Paige…
Old Piper: Right, and the only way you’re gonna be able to do that, is if you….
Old Leo: Ah, don’t say too much Hon. We don’t want them to mess up the future.
Piper: Well, isn’t it already messed up?
Old Leo: Oh, no. Not yet. Oh, and the future is worth saving, believe me.
Old Piper: You keep using the ring; focus on who you want to go to with our heart, not with your head.
Old Leo: That way you’ll get to your Grams, and then to Phoebe and Paige.
Patty: But what do we do when we get there? How do we save them?
Old Piper: You get rid of the Hollow together.
(The ring glows and they appear in the conservatory’s past.)
Patty: I think we’re back in my time.
Grams: (from other room) You want another tissue?
Little Piper: (from other room) No, I’m okay.
(They go to the living room to find Grams sitting with Little Piper.)
Grams: Well, you’re more than okay, sweetie. You’re very, very special and you need to know that.
Little Piper: Not as special as Prue, or even Phoebe. Everyone likes Phoebe.
Grams: But you’re special in your own way, Piper. I mean, you’re kind and caring, you’re the best little helper I’ve got. Plus, you are the only one who can keep your sisters from killing each other half the time. (Both Pipers smile.) And you may not know it yet, but you’ve got gifts. The most—the most amazing gifts, and someday, those gifts are gonna make you even more special.
Little Piper: How?
Grams: Well, you’ll see. (She chuckles and gives Little Piper a hug. Piper smiles.) Now, run on upstairs and play with your sisters, okay? While I make dinner.
Little Piper: Okay.
(She leaves. Patty brushes Piper’s hair.)
Patty: You loved your Grams.
(Grams stands up.)
Grams: Who’s there?
Patty: It’s okay mom. It’s just me.
Piper: Oh, no. Mom…
Patty: Mm-hmm. (Grams faints.) Mom! Oh, what happened? (She kneels down to check Grams.) Why’d she faint?
Piper: Oh, well, probably because you’re dead.
[Scene: Magic School.]
Dumain: All you need to do is focus on saving your sister, which means focusing on the battle. Let’s try again. (Billie sits in a circle of lit candles.) Clear you mind of everything else, from all that has happened since. (Billie closes her eyes.) Let go of the pain of loss, because where you’re going that hasn’t happened yet. Think only of Christy. See her at your side. You want to save her more than anything else. And that’s what you’re going to do. That’s it. You’re almost there. Now go, project yourself back to the Triad.
(Billie opens her eyes.)
Billie: The Triad? (She stands.) What the hell are you talking about? Are you trying to trick me?
Dumain: Wha—no! Of course not!
Billie: Then what was that? You said I was going back to see my sister.
Dumain: You’re right. I should have told you.
Billie: Should’ve told me what? What’s going on?
Dumain: What’s going on is that if you don’t go back to warn the Triad about the battle, they won’t be able to stop it, which means they’ll still be killed and so will your sister!
Billie: So, you’re saying the Triad was still alive?
(Dumain rolls his eyes.)
Dumain: More or less.
Billie: And you didn’t tell me? So you’ve been manipulating me this entire time, and Christy too?
Dumain: Christy understands exactly what is going on.
Billie: And what might that be?
Dumain: Why don’t you go back and ask her yourself? Then maybe you’ll understand too.
[Cut to Past Manor. Patty tends Grams on the couch. Leo watches. Piper comes with a glass of water.]
Piper: How is she?
Leo: I think she’s coming to.
Piper: No, I meant mom.
Leo: Oh, I think it’s more information overload than anything else.
Piper: Yeah, well, welcome to the club. (She sighs.) What’s wrong?
Leo: Nothing. (Piper smiles.) I just, uh, I was thinking about: after you guys say the spell to get rid of the Hollow.
Piper: Well, hopefully it’ll work.
Leo: Yeah, if it does, it means everyone’s gonna come back to life, including Billie and Christy.
Piper: Not for long, not if I have my way.
Leo: Uh, until you do it means the ultimate battle wouldn’t have been fought yet, which means the Angel of Destiny might take me away again until it is.
Piper: Listen, all I know is that we will be playing Scrabble in the future, and I’m pretty sure you will be losing.
(Leo smiles. Grams wakes up.)
Grams: Oh, what happened? Where am I?
Patty: You’re okay, mom. You just fainted.
Grams: Well, of course I fainted. You’re dead.
Patty: Oh, yeah. I know, they just told me.
(Piper and Leo come over.)
Grams: And who are you?
Piper: Well, believe it or not, I am Piper, from the future, and this is my lovely husband Leo from the future as well.
Patty: But I’m from the past, obviously.
Grams: I need a drink.
Patty: Oh, mom.
Piper: Okay, Grams, relax. I know this is all very complicated, but we don’t have time to explain. Something very bad has happened in the future and we need your help to fix it.
Patty: We have to save her sisters, mom. We have to save the Charmed Ones.
Grams: The Charmed Ones?
Grams: You become the Charmed Ones?
(She nods. Grams stands up.)
Grams: What do we have to do?
[Scene: Magic School. Billie sits in the circle of candles.]
Billie: Christy…Christy…Christy. (She appears in the past. Billie opens her eyes and stands up to see Past Billie and Christy come down.) Whoa, w-w-w-wait.
Past Billie: Who are you?
Billie: Well, I’m from the future, I came back to warn you—me, not to do this. No, no, I’m serious, you’re gonna get yourself killed. This is not going to work.
(Past Billie blasts her. She hits the wall. They leave. Billie groans.)
[Cut to downstairs. Past Billie and Christy come downstairs. The Charmed Ones orb in.]
Past Billie: We’ve been waiting for you.
Paige: Well, the wait is over.
Past Piper: No potions, huh?
Christy: We don’t need any potions.
Phoebe: Funny, neither do we.
Past Piper: (to Christy) I knew we shouldn’t’ have trusted you.
Christy: You should’ve followed your instincts.
Past Piper: Next time.
Past Billie: There won’t be a next time.
(Piper, Leo, Patty, and Grams appear in the dining room. The sisters throw power and energy at the other one. Piper opens a piece of paper and she, Patty, and Grams chant the spell. The Hollow leaves. The sisters spot them.)
Past Piper: What the—?
Piper: Don’t ask. You’ll get a headache.
(Billie comes downstairs. She is sucked into Past Billie. Piper is sucked into Past Piper.)
Grams: Now, there’s something you don’t see every day.
Paige: What is going on?
Leo: Looks like time caught up with itself.
Phoebe: How did everybody get here?
Piper: Well, actually you have Coop to thank for that.
Christy: (to Billie) What happened, what went wrong?
Billie: Not here.
(She throws a potion at their feet and they disappear.)
Piper: Oh, damn it.
Leo: It’s okay, at least Phoebe and Paige are alive.
Patty: Right, but where’s Prue?
Piper: Oh, mom. Not now.
(A ball of light comes down and the Angel of Destiny appears.)
Angel of Destiny: I’m sorry, but I have no choice.
Piper: Wait, but I…
(She disappears with Leo.)
[Scene: Manor. Living room. Phoebe and Paige sit across from Piper, Patty, and Grams sitting on the couch.]
Phoebe: Okay, so let me get this straight. Because you guys…altered a key moment in time by saving us…
Grams: And the manor.
Phoebe: Right, because of all that, what is supposed to happen after this – what? Won’t happen?
Patty: Exactly, that kind of makes this the new present.
Paige: Says the woman from the past.
Grams: Though a different past than mine.
Phoebe: (to Paige) Are you getting any of this?
Paige: Whatever, as long as we’re alive again, that’s all I care about. Plus, it’s really nice to see you guys again.
Patty: Actually, we’ve never met.
Paige: Yeah, we have, but you were a ghost. (Patty’s face falls.) Oh, does she know?
Grams: Yes, yes, we know, we’re both dead by now. We’re over it.
Patty: Well, you speak for yourself.
(Piper stands up.)
Piper: Okay, the problem is we’re still right back to where we started with Leo, and if I’m gonna have that future, that I saw with him…
Phoebe: Wait, you went to the future too?
Paige: We sure did miss a lot when we were dead.
Piper: Anyway, the point is, if I’m gonna get my husband back, we have a battle to finish.
Phoebe: And we’re gonna have to get mom home safely. Otherwise Paige and I won’t be born.
Patty: Good point.
Paige: Well, fantastic, are there any other problems we should be worrying about?
(Future Wyatt and Chris appear.)
Piper: Chris. What are you two doing here?
Chris: Somebody just screwed up our future.
[Scene: Street. Billie and Christy walk down.]
Christy: We’re gonna need Dumain’s help if we’re gonna finish what we started.
Billie: Haven’t you been listening to me? He’s been manipulating us, probably since we met him.
Christy: If we could just get to the Hollow sooner this time…
Billie: Christy, listen.
Christy: Figure out a way.
Billie: What is the matter with you? Dumain is using us, okay? And he’s not the only one, the Triad is also. Yes, that’s right, they’re still alive, or they were, but Dumain didn’t tell us that did he? Instead he tried to trick me into saving them instead of you.
Christy: Well, maybe you should’ve listened to him.
Christy: The Triad could’ve helped us figure out how to kill the sisters if they were still around.
Billie: Okay, look at me, listen to me very carefully. They don’t care about us. They have twisted everything. They’re using us, Christy. They’re using us for our powers, our sisterhood, and our lives so all we can do is kill.
Christy: And that’s exactly what we’re going to do, Billie. We’re going to kill.
Billie: Well I can’t do it. I won’t.
Christy: Then I’ll do it on my own.
Chris: I mean, we don’t know what happened. One minute everything’s fine. We’re kicking demon ass, and…
Wyatt: Actually, I was kicking some demon ass…
(Chris scoffs and shakes his head. Grams points at them.)
Grams: Watch your language.
Chris: Sorry, Grams.
Wyatt: Wait, Grams? As in the Grams?
Patty: Uh, confused. Are these my future grandkids or yours?
Phoebe: No, yours.
Patty: Oh, hi.
(Chris and Wyatt smile and wave back.)
Piper: As you were saying.
Wyatt: Suddenly, in the middle of all the fighting, everything changed.
Chris: And the demons started kicking our ass-butts… (Grams nods.) Butts, just because Wyatt here lost his powers.
Piper: Wait, how did you loose your powers?
Wyatt: That’s the thing. We don’t know.
Chris: So we cast a spell to take us back to when they were lost, and it took us here. To you.
Patty: Maybe we messed up something without realizing it.
Grams: Well, with all the jumping around we’ve done, it’s a wonder everything’s not messed up.
Piper: No, it’s gotta be Billie and Christy. They used the Hollow to steal his powers. I’m gonna kill them.
(Phoebe shakes her head.)
Paige: Well, before you do that, we need to get Wyatt’s powers back. Otherwise there’s not going to be any future to save.
Phoebe: Well, I think the only way to do that is go back and stop them.
Grams: But how do we know exactly when to go back to?
Wyatt: I’ll know, or at least I’m hoping little Wyatt might jog my memory.
Piper: Well, he’s at dad’s. I mean, grandpa’s. Um, do you remember how to get there?
Chris: Yeah, absolutely.
(Patty smiles and stands.)
Patty: I’ll go, too.
Phoebe: Um, but dad’s gonna be there.
Patty: I know. I miss him. Besides, I’m dying to know what he looks like at this age. Whoo.
Piper: She, uh, doesn’t know.
Grams: Apparently I hadn’t chased him away yet.
Patty: What are you talking…? (Patty groans.) What don’t I know?
Piper: All right, everybody go, but just, you know, hurry back if you find anything.
(Patty smacks Grams, then joins the boys. Coop appears.)
Coop: (to Piper) Hey. (He spots Phoebe.) Phoebe.
Coop: Thanks a lot for telling me she’s alive.
(Piper hands Coop his ring.)
Piper: You’re welcome.
Wyatt: Uncle Coop!
(Chris whacks Wyatt on his arm. Wyatt gasps and covers his mouth.)
Phoebe: Uncle Coop?
Piper: What? (Coop shrugs. Phoebe stutters. Piper claps her hands.) All right, everybody out, go! (Wyatt and Chris hold Patty and orb out. Piper stands up.) Okay, let’s go to the condo, and get to the Book.
(Grams stands up.)
Grams: Wait for me.
(Paige orbs them out.)
[Scene: Victor’s Condo. Victor makes tea and drinks it. There’s a knock on the door. He burns his tongue.]
Victor: Mmm, damn.
(He opens the door and finds Patty there. He screams.)
Patty: Oh, surprise! (She jumps into his arms and gives him a hug.) Oh my—oh, goodness! Oh, you’re just as handsome as you ever were.
(Wyatt and Chris step in.)
Victor: W-w-what’s going on?
Chris: Hey Gramps, how you doing?
Victor: Chris! (He smiles and they hug.) Uh, what are you doing here?
Wyatt: Hey Grandpa, how you doing?
(Wyatt gives him a hug.)
Patty: Now, this is our grandson, Wyatt. Oh! So handsome.
Victor: But I-I’m-I’m, I’m, I’m-I’m so confused.
Patty: Yeah, you’ll get over it. I did.
Victor: Where did you came from?
Patty: 1975. How do I look?
Victor: Didn’t anyone tell her we’re divorced?
(She sees Wyatt trying to signal Victor to stop.)
Victor: You dumped me for your Whitelighter.
Patty: Oh, Sam?
Victor: Yeah, Sam, Paige’s father.
Chris: Listen Gramps, we’re in a bit of a jam. Where’s little Wyatt?
Victor: He’s in the other room, with uh, with you.
(Chris and Wyatt leave. Victor gives Patty a hug.)
Victor: Oh, come on, Patty. It’s all right. It was a long time ago.
[Scene: Magic School. Dumain talks to Christy.]
Dumain: What do you mean Billie’s not coming? We need her.
Christy: We can defeat the Charmed Ones without her.
Dumain: No, we can’t. We need the Triad to do that, and we need her power to go back and save them.
Christy: Well, maybe there’s another way.
[Scene: Phoebe’s Condo. Piper tosses something into the pot. Grams and Paige are there.]
Grams: Mm, that’s not nearly enough. Here, let me do it.
(She pushes Piper out of the way.)
Piper: Wha—I think I know how to do it, after all this time.
(Grams add something in.)
Paige: It’s Billie and Christy, they’re not demons.
Grams: Well, they might as well be, from everything you’ve told me, which means we can’t take any chances. Oh, I can’t get over how big this Book has gotten, hmm. I’m so proud of you girls.
Piper: Then why don’t you let me stir?
(There’s a knock at the door.)
Grams: Uh, Piper, why don’t you get that?
Piper: Paige, why don’t you get that?
Paige: Okay, I’ll get that.
(She goes to the door and opens it to find Henry there.)
Paige: Hey! What are you doing here?
Henry: What am I doing here? (She hugs him.) I’m looking for my wife. She didn’t come home last night. Are you okay?
Paige: Yes, I’m okay. Of course I’m okay. I mean, weren’t okay, okay. But now we’re okay…and I think in the future we’re gonna be… (She nods.) I think we’re gonna be more than okay.
[Cut to living room.]
Grams: Don’t tell me she marries a Whitelighter, too.
Piper: Worse, a mortal.
Grams: Oh, good God, uh. Didn’t I teach you girls anything?
Piper: Hey, what can I say? There’s always Uncle Coop.
(She motions to the bedroom.)
[Cut to bedroom. Phoebe and Coop are talking.]
Phoebe: I really should be out there helping them.
Coop: No, not until we talk.
Phoebe: Look there are lives at stake here, and…
Coop: And so is love, ours. I let you kick me out of here yesterday. I’m not doing it again today. And you know why? Because I love you, Phoebe Halliwell. (He put his hands on her shoulders.) With all of my heart, with every fiber my being, I love you. Now I’ve found love for thousands of people all over the world, but I have never found love for myself, not until now. Until you. And I-I-I know you feel the same way, because I can see it, I know what loves looks like. And I am not letting this get away from us, Phoebe.
Phoebe: Apparently not, Uncle Coop.
Phoebe: Look. I don’t know what you want me to do with this information. I mean, we haven’t even been out on a date yet, and I don’t know how to get past the whole forbidden love thing. I just…
Piper: (from other room) Phoebe?
Phoebe: I’m-I have to go. I will call you, when we need the ring back.
(She sighs. Phoebe leaves. Coop sighs. Dumain shimmers in and grabs Coop’s arm.)
Dumain: Nice ring. Can I borrow it?
(They shimmer out.)
[Scene: Manor. Living room. Grams, with the Book, and the sisters orb in.]
Paige: Okay, all we need to do now is find Billie and Christy.
(Billie steps in.)
Billie: You don’t have to look far. Can we talk?
Billie: Look. I am so sorry for what I’ve done to you guys, after everything you’ve done for me. I just wanted my sister back so badly. I couldn’t even see that she was manipulating me.
Piper: Well, that’s very convenient, but how are supposed to know this isn’t a trap?
(Billie shakes her head.)
Paige: Guess we have to let her talk.
Phoebe: Where’s Christy?
Billie: I don’t know. Probably at Magic School trying to figure out a way to kill you.
Grams: But you’re not.
Billie: No. No. That was before. (Grams puts the Book down.) They twisted everything to make us think we were doing the right thing.
Billie: The Triad. They used us. They used Christy. They have spent the last fifteen years turning her into a killer. That’s all they’ve cared about that’s all they’ve wanted.
Phoebe: We’ve already vanquished the Triad.
Billie: Well, Dumain will try and find a way to bring them back. I know it.
Paige: Who’s Dumain?
Billie: He’s a demon, but he knows them better than anyone, and with Christy…they will stop at nothing.
Wyatt: (from another room) Mom, are you here?
Piper: Keep and eye on her.
(She goes to the conservatory. Wyatt and Chris are there. The others follow.)
Piper: Where’s mom? I mean, grandma?
Wyatt: She wanted to stay with grandpa to talk.
Grams: Well, that had better be all that they’re doing.
Piper: What did you find?
Chris: Well, Grandpa said that someone came and picked up little Wyatt, just before five in the afternoon yesterday.
Wyatt: Some man, but that’s all I could get out of him.
Phoebe: Wait, what man?
Billie: Dumain. He brought Wyatt to Christy and me to summon the Hollow.
Paige: And then you stole his powers.
Billie: We were being infected. We didn’t have a choice.
Piper: You used my son?
Grams: That is all in the past, dear. Now let’s just focus…on how to fix it now, okay?
Phoebe: Okay, so we have to go back in time to the day Dumain took Wyatt.
Billie: No, we have to go before that. I know him. He’s gonna warn the Triad before you can vanquish them.
Paige: Then you have to get the ring.
Phoebe: Coop? Coop? We need you. (Nothing happens.) Something’s wrong.
(Chris and Wyatt sighs.)
Chris: The Elders sent Coop down to you, Phoebe, not just to help you find love, but to help you find him.
Wyatt: They were hoping you’d fall in love with a Cupid. It was the only way that they could make it up to you after everything you sacrificed.
Chris: And they weren’t gonna put you through what mom and dad went through, so…
Wyatt: It wasn’t and it will not be a forbidden love.
Phoebe: Okay. Uh—I don’t know how that information helps us right now.
Wyatt: Well, in the future, when you’re together, you guys are like one.
Chris: All you have to do is think about him and he’s there.
(Phoebe closes her eyes. Coop appears, groaning in pain.)
Phoebe: Oh, my God. What happened?
(Wyatt and Phoebe help Coop up.)
Coop: I fought him for as long as I could.
Phoebe: Okay, who did this to you?
Coop: Some demon. I’m sorry he, uh, he took my ring.
Billie: We’re too late. They’re going back in time. But I can too.
[Scene: Magic School, Black room. Past Dumain is talking to the Triad. Dumain and Christy appear.]
Dumain: My lords. We come from the future to warn you about it. The Charmed Ones are going to get the Hollow at the same time Billie and Christy will.
Christy: Which means we’ve gotta get to it before they do this time.
(The Charmed Ones and Billie appear.)
Dumain: Get out of here!
(The Charmed Ones throw potions at them, vanquishing them.)
Piper: Oh, yes.
(Piper blows up Dumain. Christy gasps and steps back. Past Dumain is about to shimmer out, but Piper blows him up.)
Christy: I don’t understand! How could this happen?
Phoebe: Billie projected us here.
Paige: By focusing on you.
(Coop’s ring orbs to her.)
Christy: How could you?
Billie: Christy, please. It’s over. Just come home.
(Christy throws a fireball at them. Billie deflects it back to Christy. She’s vanquished. Billie falls to her knees and cries.)
[Scene: Manor, Conservatory. Grams paces. The Charmed Ones appears.]
Grams: Oh, thank God.
Piper: Is everything all right? Did anything change that wasn’t supposed to?
Wyatt: Nope. (He orbs to Piper.) I got my powers back.
Piper: I see that.
Chris: Now, where’s Billie?
Paige: She used her own power to get back.
Coop: But she at least tried to help out, right? I mean, tried to make amends at least.
(The Angel of Destiny appears with Leo. He and Piper exchange a smile.)
Piper: Okay, hang on a second. You’re not gonna take him away again right?
Angel of Destiny: No, this is the way the battle was supposed to end all along, and it’s over. Congratulations.
(She disappears. Leo takes Piper’s hand.)
Piper: (to Leo) Hi, there.
(He pulls her into a kiss. Everyone cheers and applauds.)
(Coop opens his arms. He and Phoebe kiss. Piper and Leo hug and laugh. Patty and Victor enter with little Wyatt and little Chris.)
Patty: Did we miss anything?
Piper: Uh, no. Well, we…changed the past, fixed the future, and saved the present. That’s all.
Victor: What’s that?
Paige: Yeah. If you haven’t figured it out by now, ya probably won’t.
Phoebe: Oh, it doesn’t matter. Just as long as everything’s back to the way it’s supposed to be.
Grams: It will be if you get us back. I mean otherwise, uh…
Paige: How are we gonna get them back?
Coop: Oh, I can take care of that.
Phoebe: Yeah, but how will you know where to take them back to?
Coop: Well, the ring will. (to Piper) If I can ever get it back.
(He winks. Piper rolls her eyes and throws the ring at Coop. He catches it and laughs.)
Chris: Just make sure you return them just before they were taken. That way they won’t remember anything.
Grams: Oh, no, don’t-don’t do that. I mean, there are so many things, wonderful things that I just don’t want to forget, you know.
(She giggles. Chris shakes his head.)
Patty: There’s just as much I don’t ever want to know. (She sighs.) Like what happened to Prue. Victor told me.
Piper: Oh, mom.
Patty: That’s all right. I know everything happens for a reason. I believe that. I also know that when one door closes another one opens.
Victor: (to Patty) Thank you for coming by.
(Victor kisses her forehead. Piper and Leo kiss. Paige hugs Patty. Chris gives Grams a hug. Victor hugs Piper. Wyatt hugs Leo. Coop, Phoebe, Grams, and Chris go in a group hug. Leo hugs Victor. Everyone laughs and mixes.)
[Scene: Manor. Dining room. Phoebe and Paige sit there. Piper comes downstairs and puts the Book on the table.]
Paige: Don’t tell me we have to go fight a demon.
Piper: No, I don’t think we’ll have to do that anytime soon.
Phoebe: Then what’s with the Book?
Piper: Well, I think we should write everything down. Everything that happened, everything we want future generations to know, so that we can pass it down, just like it was passed down to us.
(Phoebe smiles. Paige nods.)
Paige: After you.
(Piper turns the Book. Phoebe finds a blank page and uncaps a pen, then writes.)
Phoebe: (Voice Over) So much has happened over the last eight years. So much has been gained and lost. Still, in some ways, I feel like my life is really just beginning.
[Scene: Magic School, future. The Angel of Destiny is marrying Phoebe and Coop with the family around.]
Angel of Destiny: Do you, Phoebe Halliwell, take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?
Phoebe: I do.
Phoebe: (Voice Over) And it was. For though I had loved before, I’d never really known love until I met Coop.
(She and Coop kiss.)
[Scene: Phoebe’s loft. Phoebe, pregnant, rushes out with Coop.]
Phoebe: (Voice Over) A man who I shared this special little girl…
Phoebe: Yes, I am okay.
(Coop picks up a bag.)
Phoebe: (Voice Over) I had long ago foreseen, but feared I might have never have.
(Two girls run and hug her.)
Daughters: Mommy, we love you!
Phoebe: I love you too.
(She kisses their heads. Coop joins them.)
Phoebe: (Voice Over) Along with two other special little girls, I had not foreseen. (The girls go to Billie as Phoebe and Coop rush out. Phoebe drops something, but Coop picks it up.) I was suddenly so blessed to have a new family of my own, and old friends to share it with.
(Billie hugs the girls and they wave.)
Daughter: Bye, mommy!
[Scene: Bay Mirror. Phoebe types on her computer.]
Phoebe: (Voice Over) And though I kept working and giving advice to those who asked, I was more interested in helping them find love, since, finally, having been loved.
(Her poster behind her says Phoebe’s ‘Finding Love.’)
[Cut to Manor, Present. Dining room. Paige writes in the Book of Shadows.]
Paige: (Voice Over) Phoebe had become somewhat of an expert on the subject. As for me? Life without demons opened up similar avenues.
[Scene: Police Station, Future. Henry brings in a teen.]
Paige: (Voice Over) Henry of course, continued to look after his parolees, even if they didn’t want to be looked after… (Henry sees Paige and the kids, a boy and two girls.) While still making time to help me with little Henry and the twins.
(He kneels down and the kids hug him. They squeal with delight.)
Henry: There’s my girls!
Paige: (Voice Over) Which allowed me time to finally embrace my inner Whitelighter.
[Scene: Alley. A Darklighter fires a crossbow at Paige as a woman cowers behind her.]
(She orbs it back to the Darklighter and he is vanquished. Paige helps the girl up.)
Paige: (Voice Over) And to help the next generation of witches come into their own.
[Cut to Manor, Present. Piper writes.]
Piper: (Voice Over) So that Paige could pass on all that she’d learned, not just to her own children, or to mine, or to Phoebe’s…
[Scene: Manor, future. Piper and Leo are in the parlor. Piper hands out lunch bags to two boys and a girl.]
Piper: See you later.
(The children leave. Piper and Leo kiss.)
Piper: (Voice Over) But to other future witches and Whitelighters as well.
[Scene: Manor. Chris and Wyatt are mixing up a potion.]
Piper: (Voice Over) Which filled the time between when we were doing the fighting, and when our kids were old enough to take over.
(Chris adds something and there’s a small explosion.)
[Scene: Manor, kitchen. Piper is cooking something on the stove.]
Piper: (Voice Over) Allowing me time to get back to my roots and cook something other than potions, for once. (Piper tastes the sauce.) And open the restaurant I’d always dreamed of owning. (She puts the spoon down and pours it in.) As for Leo, after we reclaimed Magic School…
[Scene: Magic School. Leo is teaching.]
Piper: (Voice Over) He went back to teaching.
Leo: So who’d like to try it first?
(The kids raise their hands. Leo points to a boy. The boy holds out his hand and orbs a book to him.)
Piper: (Voice Over) Which he continued to do until it was time to retire.
Leo: Awesome. Great job, Matthew.
(He takes the book.)
Piper: (Voice Over) And although we certainly had our struggles…
[Scene: Manor, Living room, future. Old Piper sits in a chair with a girl, reading the Book of Shadows.]
Old Piper: And heartaches over the years, we’re a family of survivors and we will always be. Which is why we’ve truly been Charmed.
Girl: Again, Grandmamma, again.
(Old Piper chuckles and closes the Book.)
Old Piper: Oh, dear. No, I can’t. I need to rest. But you can look at it for a little while if you’d like, hmmm? (She kisses her head and stands up. Old Leo waits nearby.) After all, it’ll be yours one day.
(She takes Leo’s hand and they head upstairs. Girl opens the Book.)
[Cut to stairs. Old Leo and Old Piper head up as photos are shown of Wyatt, Chris, Leo, Piper, Grams, Patty, Victor, and the sisters.]
[Cut to front door. It opens and children run in. Girl waves her hand after they come in and the door is closed.]
