"I've Got you Under my Skin" Episode: #1.2 -
We enter a restaurant called Quake where Piper explains to Phoebe that
the chef who hired her has now quit and left her to manage the restaurant.
The meet a friend of Piper’s - Brittany who has a tattoo which Phoebe
admires. Having a vision of a man called Alec; Phoebe tells Piper who
disapproves of Phoebe using her powers for personal gain. Sure enough, Alec
comes over and asks Phoebe if she wants a drink and they leave.
In the parking lot we see Brittany walking towards her car, as she checks
hers reflection in the mirror we see a man looking at her from the back seat
and she screams.
Next we see Prue preparing to leave Andy’s apartment after a night spent
together. As his alarm threatens to alert him to her departure, she moves it
out of the window with her power. He wakes up just as she shuts the door can
calls for her.
In the kitchen of the house, Piper is watching a television programme about
the Salem witch trials and quickly turns it off as Prue enters and asks if
she’s worried that they’ll be burned at the stake. She proceeds to tell
Piper how quickly things moved when she went out with Andy who teases her.
Prue is horrified and changes the subject to Phoebe’s late night with Alec.
At the police station, a man named Max is reporting Brittany’s disappearance
and Andy tells him not to worry too much just yet however, when he leaves,
Andy remarks that this is the fourth disappearance in a week.
Sitting outside a church in her car, Piper looks nervously at the imposing
building where it seems she is catering a function later. She asks Pastor
Williams whether the superstition that evil beings can not enter churches
without being struck down is true and he laughs it off, telling her he
wouldn’t risk it. Unperturbed, Piper gets out of the car and walks towards
the car and walks towards the entrance however, a roll of thunder makes her
jump and she leaves.
Whilst on her way to a job interview, Prue meets a handsome stranger in the
life and receives a call from Andy who wants to discuss her sneaking out of
his apartment. As the reception cuts out, the lift comes to its floor but
Prue uses her powers to shut the door and speed the lift up to her floor.
Back at the restaurant, Phoebe runs into a photographer – Stefan, whose work
she tells him she admires. He invites her to his studio to model for him. As
she tries to explain to Piper, she asks Phoebe to make a delivery for the
restaurant as the normal guy failed to turn up – she reluctantly agrees.
At the auction house, Prue is being taken to her interviewer who as it turns
out, is the handsome stranger from the lift to whom she remarked that the
auction house was “stuffy and we learn that his name is Rex Buckland.
In another part of town, we see a hand holding a candle and walking towards
a woman tied to a table. She calls for him to help her and we learn that the
figure with the candle is Stefan however as he steps out of the shadows, he
is no longer young and handsome he is old and tells her his name is “Javna”.
Using a laser to look into her eyes he appears to suck her youth from her as
he returns to his former self.
Discussing Prue’s escapades with Andy back at the church; Piper feels that
she should have been careful given their new situation. When Pastor Williams
arrives, Piper asks Pastor Williams about a “friend” who thinks she may be a
witch. The Pastor quotes from the Bible and tells her that if she goes by
the old views, her friend is evil. Phoebe meanwhile has a flash of the
winning lottery numbers and tells an old couple buying a ticket to use them
(also buying one for herself). As they leave the church we see an elderly
woman with the exact same tattoo that Brittany had in the exact same place.
Outside Quake, Andy is once again trying to convince his partner that the
latest disappearances are linked to the occult and witches but he remains
sceptical. Inside the restaurant, Prue sees Phoebe with Stefan and wearing
Armani which we learn she bought because she believes she is going to win
the lottery. When Phoebe leaves the table, we see Stefan examining his hand
which appears to be aging.
The next day, Piper is reading the Book of Shadows in the attic. Phoebe
enters and Piper admits her fears about how their lives will change now that
they are witches. She tells Phoebe that she does not feel normal and is
scared about facing the future and Phoebe tells her that they are good
witches and that their lives will not change for the worse but instead for
the better. Then she leaves to visit Stefan’s studio!
Whilst at lunch, Prue tries to explain why she left Andy’s apartment in a
hurry and he tells her not to worry and that they can take things slow
because he doesn’t want to ruin it. Their conversation is interrupted by a
phone call from the auction house, inviting Prue to a second interview.
Piper finally manages to persuade herself to enter the church and finds that
her fears were unfounded as she is not struck down when she walks inside. As
she happily walks down the stairs she sees the elderly lady from before and
recognises her from the tattoo on her hand as Brittany.
At the auction house, Rex wants to test Prue’s expertise and introduces her
to a colleague – Hannah Webster. As Rex points her to a figurine, Hannah
manages to cause a paint tin to empty over Prue who diverts it using her
powers. Rex apologises and tells Prue she has the role. When she leaves,
Hannah tells Rex she thinks Prue is a witch. When Prue reaches home, Piper
tells her about Brittany who is also there and Prue initially doesn’t
believe her but when Piper tells her she has asked questions to which only
Brittany would know the answers, she believes her.
When Phoebe arrives at Stefan’s studio, she has a vision of Javna and turns
to leave. When she is in her van, she is grabbed from behind! Back at the
house, Prue and Piper are reading up on Javna and Brittany sees the napkin
on the fridge where Phoebe has written Stefan’s address after which she
faints. When Piper and Prue reach her she tells them that the address is
that of Javna and they realise that Phoebe may be in danger at the same time
that Andy and his partner realise the same from watching CCTV camera
Prue and Piper reach Stefan’s studio and enter after hearing Phoebe’s
scream. They release Phoebe and Javna tries to capture Prue pulling her
towards him with his stare but she reflects it back using a mirror. The
three of them stand together and recite an incantation and Javna disappears.
Back at the house we see Brittany’s youth return to her.
The police arrive and Andy is confused to see Prue, Piper and Phoebe outside
the studio. He tells them they were lucky that they didn’t go inside and
they tell him that they were trying to get the van started but not believing
them; he reaches inside and starts the ignition easily.
At Quake, the lottery numbers are read out on the news but they disappear
from Phoebe’s ticket because she had used her powers to find out what they
