'Charmed' Season 2 Episode 5 will delve deeper into Harry's psyche as he and the sisters try to get Macy back from Darklighter Harry
When last week's episode of 'Charmed' ended, Mel, Maggie, and Harry realize that Macy was taken by Harry's Darklighter. The existence of Darklighters was confirmed when Harry went to visit the first Whitelighter ever made — during the Salem witch trials — who is now housed at an institution along with her Darklighter.
This week, Harry tells Mel and Maggie that the demon assassin that looks like him is, in fact, his Darklighter and that is who has Macy. Just as normal Harry may have feelings for Macy, dark Harry seems to as well.
We also learned in the last episode that Poppy Drayton's Abigael, who was masquerading as the demon overlord, is, more importantly, Alastair Caine's daughter. She has not explained why she tried to kill Macy in particular, but she might be resentful that the Charmed Ones are going around vanquishing demons.
This week, Abigael tells Harry that if he lets her tap into his subconscious in an attempt to connect with his dark side, she can help them find Macy. In an interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Tessa Blake, who directed this episode, tells us that the show will delve deeper into Harry's psyche.
Abigael could be tapping into Harry's memories from when he was a human — which were locked away when he was turned into a Whitelighter — and figure out what parts of him made dark Harry.
Meanwhile, Mel and Maggie try a different path to find their sister, Macy, with a spell. We have been seeing Mel experiment with potions to make up for the powers she lost and this episode could allow us to see her exploring more potion-making.
In the last episode, Maggie, when in contact with Jordan's ring, sees a premonition. She initially thinks it is her old power of empathy and was reading his thoughts but realizes later that she had seen something from the future.
Ahead of the episode, Rupert Evans tweeted, "I'm excited about episode five on Friday... It was a unique script, like nothing we've had on @cw_charmed before. It's like a psychic fusion of minds... A paradigm of discovery for #Whitelighter. Do not miss it... For my money, one of the best episodes of the season. Next level."
'Charmed' airs on The CW on Friday nights.
