Not!warts. The gals run through their game plan one last time, with Piper oddly noting, "It feels strange doing it this way." "Well, I kind of wish we learned how to do it earlier," Raige admits. "Would've come in handy." "Well, Prue was really protective of it," Phoebe observes. "I'm just really glad she showed [the Dolt] how to do it." Is their vagueness as annoying to you as it is to me? Good. But trust me, you'll be longing for that comforting sense of exasperation when they finally get around to the reveal and your head explodes in anger and frustration. For now, just sit back and watch as Zankou blazes into Not!warts from the Manor, having at last figured out a way to thwart the school's defenses. The gals and Zankou snipe at each other for a bit until Zankou finally conjures a Flaming Ball Of Death atop his palm. Raige, with her orbing telekinesis, sends a heavy book from a nearby table into his chest. The impact knocks the FBOD wide while buying the gals enough time to scamper from the room. "Must we go through this?" Zankou snaps before charging out into the hallway after them. The gals draw him into the Not!warts library, where they split up to dart behind various tables and pillars to dodge the hail of FBODs Zankou attempts to rain down upon their heads. Zankou finally manages to corner Raige and, practically giggling with delight, advances upon her slowly to capture her powers with one last vial of potion. "[Raige]!" Piper snaps from the far side of the room. "Get out of here!" "Not without you two!" Raige firmly counters. "Ah!" Zankou sneers contemptuously. "Inseparable to the end," he continues. "But first things first." With that, he shatters the final vial at Raige's feet. The mojo cloud rises from the marble floor to engulf her as Zankou quite politely stretches out his hand and asks, "Your power, please?" Nothing happens. Raige gets this wicked grin on her face and flares out of the room. Zankou spins around in time to watch Piper and Phoebe do the same. Zankou, thunderstruck, flails about the room.
