Manor kitchen, later the same morning. Piper sits poring over the BoS as Prue bustles about. Seeing a pot about to boil over, she squints and TKs the dial to "off." Jeez, I'm glad they don't feel like they have to introduce us to the sisters' powers every episode anymore. Imagine how tiresome it would be to see Phoebe hooting and yodeling through the air in the first scene of every wretched show. Phoebe walks in wearing a brown business suit. As she enters the scene, she grabs her breasts emphatically, and if that's supposed to be some dialed-down equivalent of a crotch-grab, she can just think again. Of course, it could just be that one of her implants turned over or something. Phoebe kisses Prue's ass for a moment, and then advises Piper to go to the doctor, even though she just came from the hospital. Gah. Piper babbles something tiresome about how she's got to help Mikey, but under duress, promises she won't do anything without her sisters. Prue goes to warm up the car or something, and Phoebe starts an annoying freak-out about her first day on the job. Piper: "You're one of the smartest people I know." Ha. Hee hee hee. Ah-ha ha ha ha ha. Hoo, boy. Piper Halliwell, ladies and gentlemen! Oh, wait, she was serious. Well, I guess that proves that Piper's exposure to other human beings has been almost nonexistent. It would explain why she finds the Dolt attractive, anyway. Phoebe thanks her for the pep talk, and leaves.
When she's gone, Piper turns the page, and finds an entry on her creature, which is called, unsurprisingly, "The Wendigo." We get a good look at a rather lengthy entry on the Wendigo, part of which reads, "The Wendigo is a non-dead creature that roams the earth destroying the good-hearted and those in love. His fate is to wander the earth feasting on human hearts." The first Wendigo apparently fed on the heart of a lover that betrayed him, and his heart was turned to ice as a result. Also, the Wendigo looks like a human except when the full moon is out. I did a quick search for the Wendigo, incidentally, and the legend of this creature does exist, but although the Charmed version is a bastardization, it's not offensively so, unlike many, many examples I could mention, so I won't dwell on it. Also, this short story was based on the legend of the Wendigo.
