"You're not going anywhere!' Paige said to the Anubi demon, holding a ball offire over his face menacingly. "Not until you tell us what you've done with all the witches you've taken." The Anubi let out a low, menacing laugh and a chill ran down Piper's spine. "They're all dead," he told them. "But we still have their blood if you're interested." Piper's breath caught in her throat as the Anubi turned its massive head toward a line of more than twenty canisters on the windowsill. If each one held the blood of a different witch, then there were even more victims than they had thought. Suddenly, Piper felt her whole body go numb. She turned and looked at Tessa and Taryn who were huddled together by the door. "That means that Tina is ... Tina is actually ..." Taryn took one step away from her sister and fainted, her body falling limp on the floor. Tessa crumbled next to her and started to sob. Her heart twisting painfully, Piper turned slowly back to the Anubi, lifted her hands, and just as Phoebe, Cole, and Leo flung themselves out of harm's way, blew him to pieces.
Prue decides to use an antique camera to take a picture that may be used on the cover of 415 magazine, but when she does, the models and Phoebe's mysterious new boyfriend, Nikos, collapse, and the Charmed Ones must go to Hades to rescue them.

At a remote resort in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, a tree bursts into flames, an animal skull oozes blood, and a wolf threatens to attack, then vanishes like a ghost. The police suspect a nearly extinct Native American group that was forced off the resort's land long ago. Others blame the owners of the resort for defiling sacred tribal lands. Phoebe and Paige arrive for a pre-opening weekend and some sisterly bonding, but are soon drawn into danger by incidents both natural and unnatural. A powerful shaman holds the key to the mystery with his secret knowledge -- knowledge that is shared by the wolf haunting the land. The sisters call upon Piper, Leo, and Cole for guidance -- and summon all their powers to confront a demon as cunning as any they have ever encountered!
The door opened before they'd even had a chance to touch it. This time, though, they weren't met by a single, business suit-clad woman, but by four tall, muscular women dressed in pink sports bras, jogging shorts, and sneakers. Looking at their powerful physiques-broad shoulders, massive upper arms, corded thighs-Paige felt very small. Phoebe could take them, Paige thought. Between her martial arts skills and her levitation powers, even four Amazons didn't stand a chance. And these weren't real Amazons anyway, just figurative Amazons. She noticed that Phoebe had tensed, and believed her sister was probably weighing the odds as well. The women were smiling at them, but the mood had changed. Confrontation was in the air. "Ms. Winship is ready to see you now," one of them announced.
"And I'll stay here and deal with the painters and any Darklighters that might show up," Piper One put in, smiling. "Then you can go to P3 and take care of Rinaldo while I bake!" "Perfect!" Piper Two exclaimed. They both stood up and started for the door that led to the foyer, but Piper One suddenly paused and grabbed Piper Two's arm. She immediately pulled her hand back. It was a little bizarre touching a person who was essentially herself. Now she knew what her body looked and felt like from the outside as well as the inside. This was way more intense than a mirror image. If she dwelled on it for too long, she knew it would freak her out. "Wait a second," she said. "What about personal gain?" "Hey. This is going to make us a much happier, saner witch," Piper Two told her, swinging her hair behind her shoulder. "It's for the greater good."
Ophelia Jensen's good witch granny Abigail revels in her paranormal powers. But Ophelia never asked for her bothersome psychic abilities -- especially since they proved worthless when the thirty-something librarian's best friend Brian was murdered by a still-unknown assailant. Now, five years later, another friend is gone, killed in almost identical fashion. Even dear old Abby isn't safe, distracted as she is by her fight to prevent a massive, mega-polluting pig-farming operation from invading their small Iowa town. And Ophelia can't count on her snarling, scoffing nemesis, police detective Henry Comacho, to get the job done, so she'll have to take matters into her own hands. Because a common thread to the crimes -- and a possible next victim -- is suddenly becoming troublingly apparent . . . and it's Ophelia Jensen herself!

Bad Noon losing Piper saw a thick, enormous black snake rear up beside the flickering fire. "What kind of snake is that?" Piper asked. "It ... it looks like the creature from my vision," Phoebe told her. "The snake that was going to devour that girl." "That's no snake. It's a loa, an evil voodoo spirit," Randy muttered. The monstrous creature turned its head toward them. Its eyes were twin pinpoints of flame. Deadly fangs jutted from its mouth. Piper had never seen anything that was so purely evil. "It's seen us!" Yvonne exclaimed. "This is it. You must use your power now if we are to escape." Stepping out of the shadows, the three Halliwell sisters joined hands. They advanced slowly on the loa. "The Power of Three," Piper called out to steel her sisters. They squeezed her hands. "The Power of Three," they answered back.

Somewhere in lime... Phoebe couldn't help noticing that something was very wrong: the way everyone was dressed like the cast of a Thanksgiving play, the horse and carriage, the buildings made of wood.... Unless I've landed in some bizarro Pilgrim party, she told herself, that demon brought me into another time zone-one that's not even close to Pacific Standard! Suddenly it seemed as if everyone in the village was rushing over to gawk and gasp at the strange girl hiding behind the cart. "See her belly?" an old woman said, scowling. "Pierced with a ring, it is. It is the mark of the devil, I say." Phoebe glanced down. "My navel ring," she muttered under her breath. "Witch!" the mob cried, closing in around her. "Witch! Witch!" Phoebe felt the hair on the back of her neck stand up. If she remembered correctly, people in the past didn't exactly like witches. In fact, they sometimes made a point of killing them.
