After Leo left, Ryder, a handsome male-model in his 20s type, appears and offers Piper some company. The scene looks like a cheesy cinematic scene with orchestra playing in the background.
Surprised, Piper recognizes Ryder from a soap opera. Ryder wants to sweep her off her feet but she doesn't want to. Wind blows in the room, revealing a transformed and not pregnant Piper. She is wearing an evening gown matching the tux Ryder is wearing.
We now move to Piper's room where she is sound asleep with a novel, "Savage Love", opened next to her. Leo is asleep next to her. Both are dreaming that they are not alone.
A transparant creature, unknown if good or bad, touches Piper's hand and disappears through a wall. The creature moves to Paige's bedroom and sprinkles magical powder over her.
We learn that when Phoebe woke up a creature was in her bedroom begging her to help him. But was she still in her dream? She finds out about a Tracer Demon.
We see the demon standing in a sewer. He is heading to a Upper-level demon, Axel. Behind the demon, satchels similar to those used by the creature.
Axel is not happy that Tracer failed. Tracer assures Axel that he won't fail again. He is curious to know what Axel does with those satchels, dream? Demons can't dream. But stealing the satchels means that humans won't either... without dreams humans will need to deal with issues during the day... meaning getting angry. Axel will get elevated in the Underworld from all his little scheme.
At the newsroom, Elise congratulates a reporter, Bill, on his work. She assigns him a new case. It has been the third time shots are fired, all seem to have been caused by anger. Phoebe comments that even HER readers have been angrier lately. As she leaves to take a call from Paige, the reporters around Elise fight to know who'll get which case.
Paige, talking on the phone with Piper, thinks that her sister is going too far by thinking there is danger everywhere. A "soccer mom" is waiting for Paige to move out of the parking space but Paige isn't in a hurry. The soccer mom gets mad and yells at Paige.
Piper is watching a soap opera set in an hospital. It features a woman named Sienna and a man named Ryder. Paige and Phoebe storm in already in a conversation. Phoebe thinks that the problems are all linked to her dreams. Phoebe comments that it is linked to the premonition in her dreams.
Piper wants peace because she has been waiting for weeks to see what is happening on TV. Phoebe closes the TV and says they have work to do. Piper is not happy!
Phoebe thinks that a demon is causing an anger epidemic. Piper just wants the remote! Proof of the anger epidemic? Not happy at all, she finds another TV to watch the end of the soap.
Phoebe and Paige go to a campground seen in Pheobe's premonition. Amongst the normal sounds of a campground at night, we can hear magical powder falling down and see a golden glow. The creature, who is in reality The Sandman, emerges from a tent tying up his satchel.
A tracer demon appears and asks The Sandman if he really thought he wouldn't be back for him. The tracer demon moves his hands and The Sandmand corporealizes.
(Note: We don't have the spoilers here, but I suspect that the Tracer demon uses his powder on Phoebe which explains the next spoilers.)
Phoebe is immobilized after a masked killer raises his chainsaw to to strike her. Paige orbs out with her. Tracer can see the Masked Killer who is now disappointed that he couldn't kill Phoebe. He knows that he is Phoebe's nightmare.
Paige and Phoebe bring the sandman back to the manor. Piper and Leo come in. We learn that there are more than one sandman and that they sleep when their charges are awake. They talk about what sandmen do and the fact that Phoebe's nightmare popped out of her head.
Back at the sewer, Axel is pissed that Tracer lost the Sandman to witches! Tracer tells him about Phoebe getting hit by too much powder and him knowing about the Masked Killer. Tracer explains to Axel his plan... He wants to use too much powder on all the Charmed Ones so that they dream long enough so that he can kill the Sandman.
Paige helps out preparing hors-d'oeuvres for the baby shower. Piper thinks that Paige is over doing it!
Phoebe prepares a summoning spell for Tracer, while the two others with Leo are in the kitchen. But no need for the spell, Tracer appears! He throws both satchels at Paige and Piper making them fall and absorb all the powder.
Leo tries to attack the demon, but too late, the demon threw the content of another satchel on him and then goes off.
We see Piper down on the floor. She is now wearing the same evening gown we saw at the beginning and she is no longer pregnant. Ryder appears.
Paige blinks and sees Kooky, the creepy clown from her dreams, standing in front of her.
As Piper embraces Ryder, she remembers her baby and inquires about it. Leo talks to her. Leo can see Ryder.
A chainsaw sound followed by Phoebe's scream stops them all. Phoebe is in the attic now surrounded with the Sandman and the Killer. Even if the Sandman warned her that she can't fight her own dreams, Phoebe goes after the Killer who strikes her revealing a bloody hole in her upper chest. She is slowly losing counsciousness as Tracer appears.
