Apartment house. Piper's having tea with Lillian, Leo's elderly widow. This actress is so fine in this small role that I wondered where she was when they were casting for Aunt Gail in the "How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans" ep. Lillian informs Piper that Leo was studying to be a doctor before he fought and was killed in WWII. They both note his "marvelous touch." Then Lillian tells Piper that the ghost of Leo visited her one night. He was bathed in a white light and urged Lillian to "move on" and not expect him to come back into her life because now he's "immortal" and "in good with God" and has a "hard-bodied, gorgeous twentysomething trophy girlfriend with supernatural powers." Actually, the visitation appeared shortly after his death in the 1940s, and he told Lillian that "another love" was waiting for her. So she married a doctor and had children. Now she even has a great-grandchild. Piper thanks Lillian and gets up to go, because she "got what [she] came for."
Halliwell Manor. Night. Parlor. Casper Blonde expositions about getting grabbed by Libris. She doesn't remember what happened after she was pulled into the bookshelf. Prue: "He must have taken her somewhere else to, you know [makes a cutting motion across her neck]." CB stares at Prue, appalled. That's it. The lazy Ps are NOW OFFICIALLY the callous Ps. Take note. Pheebs reiterates their need to "find him, and catch him." Phoebe offers to go to the library and retrace CB's steps. The hard Ps will follow to protect Phoebe with their active powers. Prue pooh-poohs this as "too risky." Phoebe offers Prue, "You help me with my demon, and I'll help you with yours." Man, they're selfish; they're family but this all has to be quid pro quo. Whatever! Just then, Piper walks into the foyer. The callous Ps and Casper Blonde usher her out the door with them as they head to the university. Pipers wonders what's the big and asks who CB is. Phoebe rather heartlessly replies, once again, "My DEAD friend!"
University. Library. Casper Blonde shows Pheebs her notes. Then Phoebe and CB head to the scene of CB's abduction in the stacks. The hard Ps follow. Phoebe slowly reaches for "The Encyclopedia of Demons" on the shelf. She grabs it, but nothing happens. CB thinks that maybe "demons can see ghosts," and therefore Libris is avoiding the trap set by CB. But suddenly Libris morphs forward and pulls Phoebe headfirst into the bookshelf vortex. CB jumps in also. Phoebe is thrown into a storeroom. Libris makes a sickle appear in his hand, and swings it toward Phoebe's head. Casper Blonde channels her rage well enough (or has been spending her free time re-watching the "Patrick Swayze getting training" scenes from Ghost) that she's able to grab the sickle before it lops off Phoebe's noggin and all of the air escapes. Back at the bookshelf, the hard Ps try to figure out where Pheebs went. Piper hears shrieks coming from the basement air vent. She books downstairs. Prue slumps forward. Astral Prue appears in the storeroom and Hallmarks, Demon hide your evil face/ Libris die and leave no trace. The demon disappears as his sickle clanks onto the floor. Phoebe thanks god for Casper Blonde being "a quick study." CB thinks "justice has been served" and stands there, waiting to go Into the Light. Phoebe tells her to "take care." CB's still standing there. She wonders why it's "not working." Phoebe shouts, "I HAVE NO IDEA!" and looks perturbed.
