Charmed Epsiode #8.3 – “Run, Piper Run”
Air Date: October 10, 2005
As the episode opens, Piper is rummaging through her closet, delaying going
to the interview her Dad set up for her at IBM. While she is trying to get
out of it, Leo and Paige repeat the same advice that Piper has so often
given them: this is what you wanted… to try something new. Unable to argue
with her own advice, Piper goes to the interview.
The interview goes extremely well. So much so, that the job recruiter tells
her that based on her qualifications, he would consider her for a high-level
management job. Then he takes out a digital camera and asks her to “smile”
as he takes her picture. (Remember, while we see Piper, the recruiter sees
Piper’s new identity: Jenny) He’s going to send the photo for a background
check. He tells her to come back Wednesday.
Piper leaves and the job recruiter uses the photo to perform a background
check via the Internet. Immediately, it comes up that Piper’s new identity,
“Jenny”, is a wanted person. While Piper is at lunch with her sisters, the
police surround them, and Piper, as “Jenny”, is arrested. After
visiting Piper in jail, Phoebe and Paige decide to return home and do a
background check of their own to find out who “Jenny” really is.
Meanwhile, Leo, home with Wyatt’s playgroup, is in the kitchen with Eva, a
playgroup mom. She’s obviously attracted to Leo and attempts to take his
shirt off when Paige walks in. She tells Leo that Piper has been arrested.
Paige finds “Jenny’s” photograph in an old and discovers that “Jenny’s” real
name is Mya. She decides that magic is the best way to find Mya and heads
toward the attic.
Suddenly there is a loud explosion and when Paige gets to the attic, she
finds Billie. Billie, it turns out, had been studying the Book of Shadows
but made the mistake of reading aloud. Paige tells Billie that you’re
supposed to read the Book of Shadows to yourself, when you read it out loud,
you are chanting. The girls then decide to switch Piper and Mya –
effectively transporting Mya into the jail in Piper’s place.
Meanwhile, in jail, Piper has a visit from the D.A. who, thinking that Piper
is Mya, practically admits that he killed her photographer boyfriend after
she left him for him. (The murder that Mya has been wanted for). Piper is
then orbed out of jail and Mya is orbed into jail in Piper’s place.
At home, Piper tells her family that Mya is innocent and she needs them to
orb her back to jail so they can find out from Mya what she knows about the
murder. The sisters comply and Mya says she knows nothing about the murder.
Mya is then kidnapped by the D.A. and his thugs and brought back to his
apartment. He confesses to the murder of her boyfriend then leads her to the
balcony. Mya, knowing what he has planned, says that this is murder. He
calmly replies, “No, it’s suicide”, and throws her over the balcony.
Fortunately, Paige catches her and orbs her back to the mansion.
Phoebe has a premonition that there’s going to be an earthquake and it will
destroy her boyfriend Dex’s artwork in the middle of his art show. She tries
to get him to reschedule and tells him she’s psychic but he won’t
Billie tells the sisters they should scare a confession out of the D.A.,,
just like Barbaras, the demon of fear, would do. So they decide to go to his
apartment and scare him with images of him growing old in the mirror and
then each sister takes on the appearance of Mya (who he thinks has fallen to
her death over the balcony) and confront him with his crimes. He backs onto
the balcony and one of the Myas pushes him over. Just as he’s about to land
on the concrete below, Piper freezes him and gives him a choice: confess or
get splattered. He confesses.
When the earthquake strikes, Phoebe realizes that she wasn’t supposed to
stop the earthquake, just be there.
