[72virg=ins]. Phoebe bustles in with a new outfit for Piper, who calls her over, babbling that the "segment producer" will be there at any moment. She reveals a stain on the sweater of her matching outfit, but really, since the outfit's not that dressy to begin with, she could have just ditched the jacket and done the segment in a sleeveless top. I mean, she's cooking, here. Anyway, Phoebe thankfully interrupts her with the rather urgent news about Andy. Piper's freaked, but there's little time to process, as a woman smarms Piper's name from across the restaurant. Piper amusingly pulls Phoebe close to her to block the woman's view of the stain. Hee. Phoebe may not be a wage-earner, but she can be used as a human shield. Actually, that would be a really good job for her. Anyway, the woman, who's got red hair in an updo and is wearing a powder-blue-with-ugly-stripes suit that's supposed to be expensive but looks horribly tacky (not that those are mutually exclusive), says that Piper hasn't changed a bit. Piper's dumbfounded look clues her in that Piper doesn't recognize her, so she helps out with a "Joanne Hertz, Baker High, Class Of '92!" Now, I don't want to say she's had work done, but I just paused the picture on Joanne to write a few sentences, and I got a nice little flashback to the first time I saw a Picasso painting, so take from that what you will. Anyway, the kicker is that Joanne is the segment producer. She moved to New York and was trashy enough in bed to marry a rich guy who gave her a cable show in order to get her out of his hair, and voila -- Food Network's most popular show! Well, that's not quite the story she tells, but y'all are old enough to know the real deal. Oh, and the last word on Joanne? If she's seven years out of high school, then so am I. Anyway, she bitchily asks what Piper's been doing, like she doesn't already know if she's the segment producer. Piper freezes her, because she needs a pep talk from Phoebe, who comes through surprisingly well. She wraps up with, "Unfreeze that bitch in heels. We've got a demon to fight." Hee.
Park. Andy asks Prue if Phoebe's ever been wrong about her premonitions, and Prue says no, but they've always been able to change the outcome. Actually, that brings up an interesting point. Would Phoebe have gotten the premonition about Andy dying, considering that Tempus had to reset time twice in order for it to happen? In other words, would she get a premonition that wasn't part of her original future? Since her premonitions, as Prue just basically pointed out, don't typically show what's meant to happen, I would think not. Not that that's going to affect my enjoyment of the episode, as it's paced so well that I'm only catching that on my umpteenth viewing. They're talking by a hanging bench, which may or may not be important later. She admonishes him to be extra careful until they find out the identity of the demon. Andy, lost in thought, wonders if it could be Rodriguez, and tells Prue about the meeting he requested with her, and the fact that he knows she's a witch. Realizing that Andy must be right, Prue tells Andy to have Rodriguez meet her at the Manor at six that evening. Andy objects, but Prue, just as Rodriguez predicted, says she'll have her sisters there to back her up. Andy wants to be there as well, but Prue hesitatingly tells him that he can't, as that's where he was in Phoebe's premonition. She tells him to stay away, and warns, "Don't make me use my magic on you." That line should, by rights, be horrendously cheesy, but both actors give endearing "I can't believe you/I just said that" smiles, and somehow, that sells it. Told you this episode was a keeper. Prue tells him how much she still cares for him, and he promises to stay away.
