The Closing Travelogue swings us above the nighttime city for a while before cross-fading over to the Manor façade, and oh, wow. When's the last time the Glamorous Ladies gathered at the end of the episode to dispense with The Lessons Of The Week? It's been a while, I can tell you that. Flames flicker in the main parlor's fireplace as the camera pans past Raige sipping from a mug of something soothing while curled up on one of the sofas. Phoebe and Piper enter from the hall to see how their lippy bastard of a half-sister is doing after coming so close to death. "I guess I'm okay, considering," Raige shrugs. "Considering what?" Piper leads. "Considering that I was supposed to save my charge and instead she wound up saving me," comes the reply. "Maybe [The Ultimate Retard's] right," Raige breathes. "Maybe we are selfish." "Wanting a life doesn't make us selfish," Phoebe vehemently disagrees, like, go figure that sentiment's coming from the hag, "it makes us normal." "Well, we're not normal," Raige counters, echoing the glorious Grams. "We're 'The Charmed Ones,'" she continues, gifting their official title with a couple of uncharacteristically sardonic air quotes. "Nobody said we had to be that for the rest of our lives," Piper claims. "It's not written in stone." And we'll go with that for now, partly because of The Original Angel Of Destiny's testimony on the matter and partly because I'm too damned tired to dispute much of anything at this point in the recap, but mainly because CANCELLED! "I'd say we've done enough," Piper reasons, "and that doesn't make us evil." "I think it does, from [Maggot Neck] and [Ssssecretly Evil Chrissssty's] warped point of view," Raige sighs before wondering, "So what are we gonna do?" "We're gonna stop them," Phoebe calmly vows, "before they stop us." Piper flicks her eyes in Phoebe's direction, all, "Took you long enough, you stupid bitch!" as we finally fade to black.
Next week: No clue, if I rely solely upon the dismally unspecific promos the WB's vomited up for the next episode, but the good news is: 175 down, three to go! Whee!
