And just like that, Rodriguez is pulling up to the Manor. Andy, sticking to the letter of the promise if not the spirit, is staking the place out from across the street. As Rodriguez walks up to the steps, Kit, who's been getting a lot of screen time this episode, meows rather aggressively at him. He gives Kit an appraising "Should I waste a lightning bolt on you?" look.
Inside, Prue says they should go over the plan again, and Phoebe agrees, since "I want to know why I'm the one answering the door." So the viewing audience can be twice-blessed with the image of you shuffling off this mortal coil, Feebs. Prue says it's because she knows martial arts, and I have to admit that if Feebs thinks that's a poor substitute for the power to freeze or telekinesis, she's got a point, but it serves her right for complaining about her passive power anyway. The doorbell rings insistently, and Piper says that's not a good sign. Phoebe: "Which means if he doesn't want to kill Prue, he wants to date her." Ha! Everyone should get a bon mot before they die. And with that, I am signing the death warrant of the entire TWoP staff. See you in hell, friends. Anyway, Piper goes into the living room and Prue up the stairs, as planned, and Phoebe answers the door. Rodriguez goes through the motions of showing his badge, but as soon as he closes the door, his eyes go red. When Phoebe turns around, she goggles in terror, but she doesn't do so for long, as Rodriguez pummels her with a lightning bolt. She goes flying over the balcony, crashes into the wall and demolishes a couple pictures, and falls to the ground. Yessss! (If this were a later season, that would have been "YEEEESSSSSSS!") Piper calls her name, but when Rodriguez fires a bolt at her, she freezes it and him. Prue, on her way down the stairs, TKs the bolt back into Rodriguez, who vanishes with a howl. The elder Ps rush to Phoebe's side, to no avail. She's dead.
