Darryl enters and, without even greeting Piper, starts searching the premises for the Mummy, also known as "Inspector Cortez." More expository blather, saved only by the fact that Darryl actually wasn't present when Phoebe and Grams sent the Mummy to Nepal or wherever. The Dolt reassures Darryl that everything's fine; they sent Cole to retrieve him. Cleansing Burst Of Synchronicity, as Cole squiggles into the hallway at that moment. The boy's crouched down a bit and panting, and he doesn't return Phoebe's hello. We quickly discover the reason for this as a Demonic Bounty Hunter rays into the parlor. The DBH tosses a lightning bolt at Cole, Cole parries with a Flaming Ball Of Death, and the DBH sizzles his way down to Hell. Let's all say this next bit with Cole, shall we? "Damn bounty hunters. They're like gnats." "Bounty hunters" this evening is like the secret phrase from PeeWee's Playhouse. I keep expecting the furniture to scream every time I hear it.
Darryl asks Cole for the Mummy's current location. Cole tells them all not to worry, as he's set the Mummy in "a place where he can't tell a soul what he saw." The Dolt cautiously asks, "Where'd you put him?" Cole shoots a quick glance down at the floor and shrugs. Feebs, bright of tone but not of brain: "In the basement?" Piper, clenched: "I think he means a little bit further down than that." Darryl blows a gasket, spluttering demands for explanations and so forth. Phoebe ushers him out the front door, telling him the Gang of Four will take care of everything. Piper turns to the Dolt to suggest that he "reason with" the Mummy. The hope continues to be that they can convince him to remain silent on the topic of the events of the previous evening. Cole frets for a moment about the possibility the Mummy will "expose" the sisters, which is misguided. If the unnecessary exposure of Piper and Phoebe concerns him, he should go after the costume designer. Anyway, Cole picked up on something else during his little visit to Hell. He heard gargoyles. Seems the carved beasties we see on cathedrals and such are normally in "a resting stage." When triple-E Eeevil threatens, however, they reanimate to warn of its presence. Cole supposes the howls of the gargoyles mean that The Source has "surfaced." They quickly deduce that The Source is after Rose. The Dolt still can't sense Rose's whereabouts, as she is new to the, uh, craft, or whatever, so the four must rely on the details Finola provided during her last visit in order to locate the new sister.
