It is night and a father gives his son his dinner. At that moment, they
hear a noise and are ambushed by a group of men. We learn that the boy’s
name is Max and they want to “borrow him”.
In the attic, the girls are spring cleaning using Prue’s powers! They find
their toys and Prue tells them they should throw it away. They find Phoebe’s
diaries and says she wants to keep them. Prue tells them that they should
throw away hers.
The two men (one of whom we learn is called Mickey) take Max to a mechanic’s
workshop and one tells Mickey that Max is their lottery ticket. When they
leave, Max closes their eyes and starts to rock to and fro.
Back in the attic, Prue calls for Piper and Phoebe as the spirit board
pointer starts to move of its own accord spelling out HELP MAX
The next morning, the girls are discussing Max. Phoebe tells Prue that she
will check the Book Of Shadows for any information that might help them. As
Piper is leaving for Quake she sees Leo! Telling him she’s glad he’s back
she leaves him in the house.
At the police station, Prue is speaking to Andy about the spiritual SOS they
received the night before. Andy finds it funny and Prue explains that she
had a dream that she was cleaning with her sisters and they found a Ouija
board which spelled out help Max. Andy checks his computer and can’t find
At Quake, Piper finds the new chef Harry cooking in shorts! He tells her he
has changed the menus and thrown out her knives and Piper freezes him,
taking her knives out of the bin and throwing his crab ravioli in! Speaking
to Phoebe on the phone she asks if Leo is still there and Phoebe tells her
he is and goes to find him in the living room where he is hovering in front
the chandelier!! Visibly shocked, Phoebe tells Piper she’ll call her later
and Leo falls to the ground and tells Phoebe he can explain what she saw.
She immediately assumes that he is a warlock but Leo says that if he was
wouldn’t he have tried to kill them already? She asks if he is a witch and
he tells her no but she is shocked to see a lit bulb in his hand!
In a car park outside a building, the two men that kidnapped Max are showing
him blueprints to a microchip plant, it appears that they want him to switch
the security system off somehow. He tells them he can’t do it because his
mother told him he shouldn’t use his power for bad things. They threaten to
do something to the boy’s father and the boy agrees to help. Sure enough
once Max starts to rock to and fro, Mickey goes up to the front door of the
plant and sees the security system disabled, allowing him access to the
building. When he walks outside again, Mickey sees a security guard who he
Back at the manor, we learn that Leo is a whitelighter – a guardian angel
for good witches. He tells her that her tea is cold and moves his finger
over it which instantly heats it up! Leo explains to Phoebe that he was sent
thereby the elder whitelighters to watch over the sisters when they go their
powers. He also explains that he is there to help Max who is a budding good
witch. He was supposed to help Prue receive the SOS and then guide her.
Phoebe tells him that she is the wrong Halliwell to ask to keep a secret and
that he should tell Piper but he tells her that whitelighters and witches
aren’t supposed to fall in love but he did. He tells Phoebe that he needs to
tell Piper he can’t see her again but can’t explain why.
At Bucklands, Andy visits Prue and tells her that the security cameras of a
microchip plant which was broken into picked up a shot of a car in which a
boy called Max was seen. Andy tells her that not long ago, a group of
children snuck into an arcade in the same way as the microchip plant was
broken into. He tells Prue that he went to see Max’ father and he told him
that the boy was visiting his grandparents! Meanwhile Prue is receiving a
message on the spirit board and writes it down as Andy tells her he will
find out his secret one day. The message that she received says “kidnapped
Prue visits Max’ father’s home and explains that she knows he’s been
kidnapped but can’t understand why he won’t talk to the police. He tells her
she should leave but she uses her power to lift a family photo into his
hands to show that she can help
At Quake, Phoebe and Leo are visiting Piper. Leo tells Phoebe he will
explain that as much as he loves her, his work will keep them apart. Phoebe
tells him to think harder.
At Max’ house, his father is explaining what happened. Prue tells him that
she knows that Max is fine and he asks if she is a witch. We learn that his
wife was a witch and is who Max inherited his power from. Prue tells him
that he needs to forgive his wife for not telling him his secret sooner.
Prue asks if Mr Franklin knows of an autoshop nearby and he tells her that
Max’s friend Danny has a brother who works in one and Danny is one of the
children that Max broke into an arcade with.
At the autoshop, Prue appears and tries to help Max, using her powers on
Mickey and his accomplice but Mickey knocks her unconscious. When she comes
to, she has been tied up. Mickey tells her not to try her magic again as he
has wired Max with explosives. He tells Prue he is scared but he’s also
sorry he brought her into the situation and for his powers. Prue tells him
that he shouldn’t be sorry because they’re a gift and that his father
doesn’t hate him he doesn’t understand.
At Quake, Piper finally has a few moments to talk to Leo but is called away
by the new chef and Phoebe arrives to explain that she can’t find Prue.
At the police station, Andy and Daryl wonder why Mickey Jackson didn’t steal
anything from the microchip plant and whether they are looking into
something bigger. Andy gets a call from Phoebe asking if he’s seen Prue but
he tells her he hasn’t since the morning.
At the manor, Leo gets a chance to tell Piper his news but she freezes him
and asks Phoebe is he is about to tell her she can’t see him anymore. He
tells her he’s “involved” but not in the way that she thinks and that he’s
sorry. Piper tells him she understands and that he’s geographically
Back at the autoshop, Mickey and his accomplice are preparing for their
robbery. Prue is explaining that his father will understand his power (which
is psychokinesis) and he will too eventually. Max’ father appears and tries
to bargain for his son, Prue warns him that Max is wired. Mickey tells David
(his accomplice) to put Prue and Max in the van and when he does so, Mickey
takes Gordon (Mr franklin) behind the van and shoots him!
When they arrive at the bank, Max sets to work opening the vaults and
disabling the security system. They all leave the van and enter the bank
together. Prue tells Max to use his power and disable the explosive device
then set off the alarms. Security guards appear and mickey shoots them then
tries to detonate the device which doesn’t work. Prue uses this opportunity
to use her power to throw the two robbers into the vault and close it,
enabling them to make their escape.
Back at the autoshop, Gordon is lying on the ground and Leo appears in
lights. He tells him that it isn’t time to be with his wife and holds his
hand over the wound, as he does so, his hands cast a light over the blood
and appear to heal the wound! Leo tells Gordon to raise Max well and heed
Prue’s advice. When he leaves, Prue and Max arrive in the van. Prue is
visibly shocked that Gordon isn’t bleeding and all signs of the wound seemed
to have disappeared. Gordon tells them that there’s somewhere they need to
go and tells Prue that he’d like her to go with them.
At Max’ mother’s grave, Gordon tells Max that he hopes that his mother and
him can forgive him for his behaviour and reaction to the powers and they
In the attic, Piper tells Phoebe and Prue that she felt that Leo had a
secret that he was holding back. Phoebe blurts out Leo’s secret but Piper
and Prue laugh at her. Prue tells her that with her imagination she should
write children’s books. As they continue to clean the attic, Prue tells
Phoebe that some of the toys should be kept despite her earlier words that
they should all go to the salvation army. She says that they should be saved
for their children and that she had time to think - coming to the
realisation that she does want children and that she’d make a great mother.
Phoebe asks if she saved Max or if Max saved her.
