Up in the Room of Death, Prue draws a blanket up over Pipers body. Sniff. Out in the hall, Special Forces Pete (or we could be up to Special Forces Billy by now) kneels against a doorframe and aims a high-powered rifle at the wall hiding Prue. The rifle has a heat-sensitive, plaster-penetrating scope which reveals Prues form as she paces back and forth in the Room of Death. He targets her head. Quick cut down below, where Source Earl Jones intones, It shall be done. Special Forces Billy squeezes the trigger, and we shift into BulletCam, following its trajectory through the wall. The bullet wings into the room. Prue raises her hands to the sides of her face in shock. The bullet slows, then stops right in front of her nose. Time reversal kicks in, and the bullet hurtles backwards out of the room and into the rifle. Theres a very quick rewind of this short scene followed by a series of shots of time tramping backwards across San Francisco. Fast fade to the much-abused grandfather clock in the manor hall. The hands on the face whiz backwards to reset themselves at 6:25 AM.
Piper rolls her eyes as if to say, The only problems with saving innocents are the stupid innocents themselves. Prue gives Doc the shorthand version of whats going on. Hes a healer, which means he does good. Either hes already saved too many lives, or hes about to help someone the dark demonic forces sent from the flaming maw of Hell want dead. To prevent this, The Source has sent the aforementioned demonic assassin, a personal lackey of his named Shax. Thats a horrible name, but I expect nothing less from the hax who write these damn things. And that was a horrible joke. Lets move it along then, shall we? Docs had it. He thinks this is all some sort of practical joke perpetrated on his undeserving self by his second wife. Hell soon learn otherwise. Prue begins to explain the evil theyre up against is very real, indeed. Dr. Griffiths, this is anything but she starts, but cuts herself short when she feels a chill run through her body. She calls for Phoebe as the sound of a raging whirlwind amps up a bit on the soundtrack.
