Blackened BLACK HOLE OF SOCIAL SERVICES. In the gloom of the office, which has been shuttered for the evening, Pre-Raige retrieves Road Kill's pendant from the linoleum in the copier room. She blathers something or other about why Road Kill was drawn into our time before Raige's boss interrupts the reverie. Mistaking Pre-Raige for Present Raige, he wonders why she's still there when everyone else has left. She rises regally and asks, "By what name did you just call me?" He smirks at her, assuming she's gotten roped into performing at the Renaissance Fair as well. He tells her to lock up when she finally decides to leave, and makes his way to the front door. Pre-Raige stalks behind him, looking vacant. I mean, "as if she's about to vanquish his stupid ass." As he exits, he urges her to be "on time for once" the following morning. Get it? "On time"? GET IT? Pre-Raige strides over to a corkboard on the wall covered with photos of BLACK HOLE employees. She plucks one off. Labeled "Paige & Eilish," it shows Rose McGowan and the show's costume designer beaming at the camera. Now that we all know what Eilish looks like, can we hunt her down and extradite her? I hear Slobodan is lonely and could use the company. "Looking forward to meeting you," Pre-Raige intones. Mua ha ha ha ha! Not.
Chez Raige. The lady of the house sits on her loveseat. The Road Kill paces about adoringly. Eventually he kneels, then sits at her side, and they whisper rash-inducing clichés at each other. She can't believe he's real. He wants "to take [her] away from all of this." "True love is falling under someone's spell." Barf. He tells her to wish for anything and he'll make sure it comes true. She lames something about being as good as Prue. Road Kill doesn't get it. She tells him to forget about it, and they lean in for a kiss. Raige has no taste. Road Kill looks like he just endured a botched rhinoplasty. Before they lock lips, Piper, Phoebe, and the Dolt orb in. Piper freezes the Road Kill, leading Raige to rise to her feet to scream. Don't these people ever knock? They would, Piper allows, but the situation has deteriorated. They bring Raige up to speed on the recent developments. Raige can't quite grasp the implications of having past lives, but she knows better than to question the trio's explanations at this point. "Does this mean I'm [Eeevil]?" she whines. "Yeah," Piper deadpans. "No!" Phoebe corrects. "Just your past self. You've grown, you've evolved." Piper joins Phoebe in making rolling-over motions with her hands. Piper reveals the plan to bind Pre-Raige's powers with the little vials of pink potion each of the invading threesome has in hand. Present Raige immediately volunteers to take care of the situation solo. It's her story. She should be the one who ends it once and for all. Phoebe questions the wisdom of this, but Piper encourages Raige's plan of action. Raige will "backtrack" to find Pre-Raige while the other remain in the apartment with the Road Kill. Once Raige leaves with a vial of the potion, Phoebe turns to Piper to ask, "Why'd you let her go?" "Because it's time we realized we can't make her do something she doesn't want to do." Those Ps. Always learning a little about life.
