Mystical Cave - Eternal Night
Phoebe falls hard onto the ground…another failed walk through her vision quest. Rubbing her sore back, she complains, "What, am I a masochist? Enough already." Enola: "Every journey requires a sacrifice." Phoebe: "Yeah? Well, guess what - my whole life's a sacrifice, okay? If that's all my future holds, then forget it, I don't want to see it." Enola: "You're fighting it, don't. Don't use your powers to get through, they're not working very well anyway. Just let it come to you - want it more than anything." With Enola's reassuring look, Phoebe lets out a sigh and accepts more of the brew. In Phoebe's vision, she's in the manor again, same spot as last time, but calmer, focused on the golden curtain. The fireball whizzes past, but she ignores it and keeps going. The black hooded demons attack again, but without her to react, they fall right through her. She makes it to the conservatory, to the light, which glows brighter as she walks through it…and into her future. Phoebe, wounds now healed, confused by her surroundings, enters to find it's warmly lit, still surreal, but no sense of danger. Two little boys, around 4 and 6, vie for who gets to play with a game as Piper enters from the living room. "Come on Wyatt, let your little brother play with the game, too." Phoebe: "Little brother?" Paige: "Phoebe…" She turns to see Paige, adorned in the familiar robes of the Magic School, standing in the dining room, "I gotta grade papers, can Piper take you to the doctor instead?" Phoebe: "The doctor?…I don't understand." Piper, passing by, "Gotta make sure out little niece is doing okay." Dream Piper pats Phoebe on her stomach, causing Pheebs to look down…to reveal she's pregnant. Phoebe: "What!?" She's thrilled, then hears, "Aunt Phoebe?" She turns to Wyatt's brother, who stares at her, "We need your help." A white flash brings us back to the cave, Phoebe out of her vision quest, to see Chris beside her, "Phoebe? Did you hear me?" She blinks, realizing the vision is gone, disoriented at seeing Chris there. He tries again, "We need your help…are you okay?" Remembering, she touches her stomach, "I don't know…" She turns to Enola, "Am I?" Enola: "You tell me. What'd you see?" Phoebe: "I saw…children…MY child…a normal life, without demons - is that possible?" Enola: "With your powers, you know by now what is truth and what is not. Embrace those powers again, embrace your path and it will take you there." Phoebe stares at her, grateful, "You have no idea what you've done for me." Enola: "You should go. So you can use your powers to help us save our school."
P3 - Night
The crowd's dancing to a new one by Ziggy Marley, who's live stage set ends to applause. At the bar, Piper and Phoebe hang out, clapping as well, as Paige saunters up. Paige: "Hey, wasn't Ziggy Marley supposed to play here before?" Piper: "We had to reschedule. So, how's Zachary doing?" Paige: "He's doing alright, back home with his family. Although, I wouldn't be surprised to see him back at Magic School some day. I think he heard us, about accepting who he is." Piper: "So you're not going to bind his powers then?" Paige: "No, he didn't want me to. Although, he helped me realize that it might be a good option for somebody else." Phoebe: "Richard?" Paige nods, "He can't handle it, so why should he have to, right? Maybe I can help him to accept that. Maybe I can finally help him, too." Phoebe: "You're gonna be a great teacher one day, Paige." Paige: "Teacher?" Phoebe: "Yep, at Magic School. Just one of the many little tidbits I saw on my vision quest." Piper: "Yeah, well she won't be teaching Wyatt there, that's for sure. I'm suddenly a lot more concerned about tearing him away from his family than raising him as an only child." Phoebe: "You might not have to worry about that someday, either." Piper: "What? What are you saying?" Phoebe: "I'm saying…" She spots Chris coming down the stairs and heading for the back room, and Phoebe deflects Piper's question with, "I'll be right back." She moves off over Piper calling to her, "Wait, hold it, you didn't answer the question!" Piper looks to Paige, who shrugs it off. Near the back door, Phoebe catches up with Chris, stopping him. "Hey." Chris: "Hey…you come over to kick me out?" Phoebe: "No, I came over to ask you a question." Chris: "What?" Phoebe: "I need you to be honest with me, Chris. No running away, no games, just the truth, okay?" Chris, needing her trust, "Okay…" Phoebe pauses for a beat before she hits him hard with, "Are you Wyatt's little brother?" Chris holds a poker face for a moment, not wanting to answer her, but knowing he has to, "Only if I can get Piper and Leo back together in time."
