Manor attic. Jenna instructs Piper on the ingredients for Demon Be Gone, which include bottled water, dandelion, and chickweed. Piper places each ingredient into the glass jar she holds above the table. Prue, who had been leafing through the Book of Shadows in the background, wonders why bottled water is necessary. For Cole, the purer the better, Piper perks. Ill let that one slide, knowing that the results of the study that proved tap water as clean as bottled were published the same day this episode aired. Piper seals the lid on the jar and shakes it while she bitches about her screwed-up powers. She snots that TPTB are punishing her for wanting a normal life. By this time next week, Ill be walking around like Carrie at the prom. That would be fun, but you know were never going to see it. Jenna just smiles and changes the subject. These Charmed Ones -- they're so wacky. The potion should be sufficiently mixed by now, Jenna notes, and takes the jar from Pipers hand. The Dolt orbs in behind her with some good news and some bad news. Pipers powers arent wonky, as she puts it. Theyre advancing. Turns out your powers work by slowing down molecules, he explains. And now, apparently, you can speed them up as well. This is the good news. The bad news is that Piper needs a hell of lot of practice before she can control it. Prue tells her not to look a gift power in the mouth. Theyll need all the help they can get to fight off the Bi Kraps. Her research in the BoS turned up an entry on the amulets. If the Bi Kraps acquire the spell therein, they can use the amulets to promote the cause of evil. Jennas confused. Join the club, sweetpea. She was told evil could not benefit from the charm. As were we all. Prues version of spackling over this plot hole involves the line, Maybe they figured out a way. Yeah, and maybe the writers hit the crack pipe one too many times. Phoebe enters the attic at this point, dragging the knackered Colethazor behind her. He slumps wearily into a chair and she kneels at his side. Prue astutely observes, You look like hell. Yeah, ha ha -- not. Phoebe wants to know if the Demon Be Gone is ready. Jenna replies that it must cool off a bit and turn blood red. Piper offers to get some ice from the kitchen. Prue makes with the excuses and joins her.
