Cut to a church, somewhere in the city. Vince, not following Cole's orders, manhandles a church secretary, trying to find out where Father Thomas is. She tells him the priest was confined to a mental hospital three years ago after suffering a nervous breakdown, and for her troubles, he gives her the burnt-cheese face. Slick, Vince. Real slick.
Cut to Prue, cowering in the basement of the manor, her hands clamped against her ears in a futile attempt to shut out the screaming voices coming to her from seemingly every house in the neighborhood. And for an upscale neighborhood of pricey Victorians, there's an awful lot of domestic violence going on behind those lace curtains, apparently. Piper and Leo enter, asking Prue what's wrong. She hyperventilates an explanation about the pain the empath power is causing her, and as she hits a spike in the emotions she's receiving, her telekinesis flares out, buckling the floorboards above them. Piper declares the empath power was never meant for Prue, and that they're going to give it back to Vince as soon as they find him.
Condemned Demon Emporium. The area is taped off with yellow "Police Line" warnings, and there are several squad cars parked in front, along with an ambulance from the coroner's office. Phoebe runs up to Leo and Piper and asks after Prue, who has stayed in the car. Piper notes Phoebe's walk-of-shame attire, and after confirming Phoebe did indeed have all-night sex with Cole, she and Leo fill Phoebe in on what's happened. Phoebe "smells a demon," Piper wonders how a demon would obtain empathic powers, and Leo guesses they were placed as a curse on the demon by a true empath. The three enter Vince's abandoned loft, and Phoebe is flung into a string of visions: Vince frying the deputy, Vince frying the church secretary, and Vince frying Father Thomas at the nuthouse. Piper wonders how Phoebe could have a vision without touching anything, and Leo notes the loft is likely "dripping with psychic remnants." Thanks for that mental image, Leo. Ew. Phoebe's not certain the last of the murders has taken place yet, and the three agree to head over to Crest Hills. Prue, meanwhile, huddles in the back seat of the car, going all Snake Pit on everyone.
