Phoebe comes in as Paige prepares to leave for her honeymoon, and
Paige is serving huge meals to the family to make up for everyone leaving.
Everyone promises not to interrupt her honeymoon with the “family business.”
They then all freeze as the last member of the Triad,
Candor, arrives to tell Christy to do her job and separate Billie from the Charmed Ones, and she angrily tells him to leave.
Paige finally leaves and Christy tries to get Billie to move out. Billie responds by trying to get Christy to meet with their parents, who are in town. Later at Magic School Christy rages at Candor who worries she’s being drawn in. They’re interrupted by two Noxon demons torturing a witch. Candor scatters the demons and assures them they’ll have their revenge before teleporting them out.
Billie meets with her parents, who can’t accept that Christy won’t talk to them. Her father warns her that they won’t come back again. Phoebe runs into “Coop” who continues on about how she’s running from love. He hits her with some magic but there’s a block keeping her heart sealed against love. He teleports her back into the past to the point where she revealed who she really was to Dex. While Coop takes her to another love out of the past,
Billie comes back to the manor and the two are back on their respective kicks. They’re interrupted when two students from Magic School arrive, including Ryan, the one being tortured earlier, and ask for their help
They reveal they were students of Leo and the Noxon demons were test subjects in their class of five. Ryan and Jen are the only two left and came to get Leo. Apparently the demons can’t be banished and only Leo knew how to stop them. Piper resolves to help them while Christy stalls, saying she doesn’t want to be near demons. Christy announces she’d rather meet with their parents to get Billie to go with her. The two demons are angry that Candor sent them off and Rondok resolves to get revenge despite Pator’s reluctance.
Phoebe and Coop are visiting when she was with Anton in an intimate encounter, then when she had a romantic moment with Drake. Then Coop returns them to the present and starts talking about Cole. Piper is insisting she can protect the students when the two Noxon demons show up. Piper seriously injures Pator but as noted, it can’t be banished, and they
Billie and Christy meet with their parents in a park and they have a tearful reunion, but Billie gets a call from Piper asking for help. Billie takes of and Christy is not happy at being left with them. Candor mentally tells her to stop meeting with her parents and she demands he meet with her. Candor warns that her parents are swaying her and she can’t destroy him until she frees herself of her family ties.
Piper prepares to set a trap for the demons using crystals and tells the students she’s all they’ve got. Phoebe and Coop travel to where she met with Cole for the first time, and then to where Phoebe had to banish Cole, and Coop offers to show her why she shouldn’t block out love.
Paige arrives to check on things and they reassure her there’s no problem and she heads back to her honeymoon. Candor approaches the Noxon demons and offers them a deal so they all get what they want if they deal with his problem.
The students suggest they use the astral plane, where time stops, and then trap the Noxons in a perpetual partial banish. They volunteer to act as bait to lure the demons in but Piper is reluctant to use them.
Coop shows Phoebe visions of the spark of love she’s felt, with Jason Dean, Les, and others.
The block breaks up and he announces she’s ready to begin again. Billie goes up to her parents’ hotel room and assures them there’s some things in her past she has to deal with. Christy gets a call from Billie and she makes a hasty exit. After she leaves the Noxons appear outside the room.
Piper is going through Leo’s files and is running out of options, and Wyatt shows up to tell her she should do it, that Leo would want her to. Christy arrives and Billie doesn’t know about any call, and they quickly figure it’s a trap. They get back to the hotel to find their parents dead and Christy sends Billie back to the manor. Pator now wants to leave but his brother Rondok still wants revenge on Leo.
Piper has the students arm themselves with potions and then drops the crystals. Rondok shows up and injures Piper, and the students throw their potions. Once Rondok is on fire they send him to the astral plane where he’s trapped forever. The next day Paige shows up to heal Piper and gripe about how they kept her out of the loop. Piper admits she’s more comfortable with Leo’s absence, and a cheery Phoebe pops in to wonder what she missed.
Christy confronts Candor who admits he set up her parents to be killed – in a fit of rage she kills him, now having enough power.
Piper: Ask the Firestarter.
