Present Nursing Home. Phoebe lies in PMGS's bed. Leo asks her if she's all right. Is she there? PMGS stands up from her wheelchair, stating, "Here, there, everywhere." She opens up a jewelry box, and takes out the amulet. Why, she had the "Heart of the Ocean" all along! She walks to the railing and flings it into the watery depths with a girlish sigh. I mean, she holds up the amulet to Leo. He gapes. PMGS wipes her face and turns into Anton. Anton pimp-slaps Leo into the bathroom door, knocking him out and revealing a bound and gagged PMGS inside. Anton sings the "Only Girl in the World" song and puts the amulet on Phoebe as she lies on the bed in her trance. She wakes up as Evil Phoebe, and asks where she is. Anton tells her that she's been "reincarnated." Remembering that his soulmate is Princess Not-So-Bright (tm Nora Dunn in Miami Blues), he further elaborates, "Reborn." Evil Phoebe and Anton neck.
Sure your hair is "shimmery," Milla. It's also the same color as Ronald McDonald's.
1920s Halliwell Manor. A cut-rate sepia-toned establishing shot with one lonely period automobile driving past. Cut to Pre-Phoebe inside, explaining to the pre-hard Ps that, "I'm not who you think I am -- I'm a different me." Pre-Prue and Pre-Piper don't buy it, and advance toward her. Pre-Pheebs blathers some more about the three of them "evolving" into "good sisters, happy sisters." Pre-Piper quips that she must have cut off too much oxygen to Pre-Phoebe's brain. Hee. I love me a good dig at Phoebe's mental incapacities, regardless of the era. Pre-Phoebe decides to "screw this" and starts her "In this time and in this place" return spell mantra to try to escape to the present. When she finishes her spiel, she looks over the banister and still sees her pissed-off flapper sister/cousins. Pre-Prue shoots an icicle ray at Pre-Pheebs and it leaves an icy hole above her on the wall. Pre-Phoebe books up the stairs.
Intermezzo Nursing Home. Prue brings water to PMGS. PMGS thanks her effusively (natch). Piper says that the nurse will be there shortly to make sure the old lady is okay. Leo rubs his hurt jaw and bitches, "I'll be fine, thanks for asking." Piper tells him he will get "no sympathy out of [her]." Prue asks PMGS if she can get anything else for her. PMGS requests some product-placement gelatin dessert that won't be named until they send MBTV their advertising fee. Prue's face says, "You know, old lady, I was only asking to be polite, what do you want -- the sun, the moon, and the stars if I have time?" while her voice replies that she'll "see what [she] can do." Prue ignores PMGS to join Piper and Leo for a processing summit. They voice their disbelief that Anton would use PMGS to set a trap for Phoebe. Word. Wouldn't Anton have shown up at Halliwell Manor a long time before the events in this episode? Anyway, Prue gets on task and reminds them that they need to get Phoebe back from the past. Piper worries about confronting Evil Phoebe, since she's probably protected by the amulet. Leo states the obvious -- that they need to get the amulet off of Evil Phoebe long enough for Pheebs and Evil Pheebs to switch lives. Then Phoebe will have to wear the amulet to protect her in the present from the past life curse. Prue gets as mired in the mechanics of this plot as I do and states the "bottom line -- find Evil Phoebe and get the amulet." Piper and Leo have no follow-up questions. They reason that since there are only five minutes left in this episode and Evil Phoebe only knows about the Halliwell Manor set, EP and Anton will be waiting at the house to try to trap and kill them. Leo and the hard Ps book home.
