Prue and Piper bring Dr. Griffiths to their home to save him from the Source's assassin Shax. While Phoebe looks in the Book of Shadows how to vanquish the demon, Prue and Piper fight and chase Shax onto the streets to destroy him. However, they are filmed and exposed live on television news as witches. They become a national sensation with a crowd in front of their house. Phoebe trusts Cole and goes to the underworld with Leo to ask him to summon Tempus and revert time while a fanatic woman shoots Piper, who dies. The source proposes Phoebe to stay with him and in return he would save her sister. Phoebe accepts the deal, and the time is reverted to the moment Shax is attacking Prue, Piper and Dr. Griffiths. Only to loose Pru. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Where is this episode????????
23 July 2008 | by wingnut105See all my reviews

I swear I have seen all the other episodes perhaps 3 times each. The reruns have been on TNT forever, several times a day. Why have I not seen this episode in rerun and does anyone know when I may? And now, in order to get this posted, and hopefully answered, I must fill the next several lines with something coherent so please forgive the following uninteresting information. I enjoy Harleys, cats, my wife, and my daughter, not necessarily in that order. My job is not the greatest, but it helps pay the bills so I guess I shouldn't complain. How about the price of gas? Now, if I could just win that lotto.......... Good gosh, am I ever going to get to the ten lines necessary to get this darned question posted? OK, let's see. How about a funny quote? Navin R. Johnson: Huh? I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends and... uh... my thermos.(From The Jerk 1979)
