Alley. Paige and Piper orb in.]
Paige: Weren’t we here before? Doesn’t that mattress look strangely familiar?
probably because we saw one just like it in the last alley and the hundred and
fifty before that. They all start to look the same after a while. Now, where
is this paragon of good we’re supposed to protect?
slow down. We gotta be careful, okay?
I just need to get home before Leo is sentenced.

this waiting business sucks. I mean, Leo was an Avatar for less time than
it’s taking them to make up their minds.
it’s gonna be okay. You’re not gonna lose Leo again. The Elders still need
him. They’re not gonna do anything rash. Besides…it’s Phoebe we should
be worrying about. Her man’s disappearing tonight.
what? She didn’t tell me she had a thing for Drake!
I mean, she didn’t tell me either, but, come on, he’s cute, he’s funny,
he’s smart, and he’s destined to leave. I don’t know, that kind of
sounds like her type to a ‘T’. I mean, really, how many times does a girl
have to get hurt before she just kind of wakes up?
(A woman walks in
behind Paige, carrying flyers.)
you think she’s…the innocent.
I don’t think she’s the innocent. I think she definitely has a part in
this and she absolutely…
(The woman walks up
to them. Paige is startled.)

up.) I think Phoebe’s just been…unlucky in love lately.
ya think?! Hey! (Three more demons shimmer in. Piper gets the woman out of the
way. Two demons throw fireballs. The woman falls to the ground, unconscious.
Piper and Paige take cover behind a dumpster.) Uh, ugly metal…thing!
(She orbs a metal
pipe. It vanquishes them. Another one blows a thorns. Piper blows her up, but
one thorn hits her hand.)
Ah… (Paige pulls the thorn out.) Did we know that the female spits thorns?
Manor. Paige and Piper orb in.]
we really need to have Leo look at this.
fine, really. Leo! (Leo comes down the stairs, wearing his Elder robes.) Why
are you wearing those?
Elders made their decision. I have to go.
now? You can’t go right now. The boys are in school. We won’t be able to
see… (Leo walks down the stairs.)
this isn’t goodbye. I’m just going up there to find out what my punishment
do you mean ‘just’? You make it sound like it’s no big deal. What if
then we’ll deal with it. Come on. You’re the one who said the Elders
couldn’t yak me away, remember?
that was before I had all this time to stress out about it.
at least now we’re finally gonna know. I mean, that’s a good thing, right?
The waiting’s been killing us.
I know. It’s just…I have a bad feeling.
too. (He sighs.) But we’ve been through worse. You just have to have faith,
okay? (They kiss.) I love you.
love you, too.

Male Elder: We
didn’t say that.
We understand and we
fully accept how being betrayed by an Elder, by Gideon, led you to the
Male Elder: Still,
that doesn’t excuse your betraying us.
The council has come
to realize that the central problem is your effort to balance two distinctly
different worlds – yours with us and yours with Piper.

the only solution is to find out which world you truly belong in once and for

the love you share for Piper is so strong that you’re drawn back to her
despite all odds, then you will live with her forever.
To live fully as a
human without any interference from us ever again.

Male Elder: Then
it means that your destiny is with us and we will welcome you, although
you’ll never see your family again.
you out of your mind? I won’t do that.
Male Elder: You
have no choice.
You have to know,
Leo, this is not about punishing you. This is about helping you to find your
but if I end up with Piper, how do I know you won’t eventually butt in
again? Or if I wind up with you as an Elder, how do you know I’m not gonna
leave…by falling from grace?
Male Elder: No
Elder has ever done that before.
take away my family and I will.
We are not taking
away anything from you, Leo. This is about you making a choice, not us.
Don’t you see? This is the only way. Your heart will guide you to your true
destiny, be it love or the greater good. Whatever way it turns out, we will
honor it…as you also must.
I’ll do it. But first I’m going to say bye to Piper.
Male Elder: It
doesn’t work that way.

path towards following his destiny.

Piper, I know this seems really bad, but we can’t give up hope. Leo is out
there somewhere, and I’m sure there’s lots of ways we can find him.
I don’t know. We can scry for him, although he doesn’t have his powers, so
that might b-be difficult. We could – I don’t know. I just, I don’t

to finding out who you really are.

fingerprint card aside.)

amnesia remembers something.
I wish I did. Believe me.
Well, at least we know you’re one of the good guys. Saved old Clyde’s

I made a deal. I got to be human for a whole year. Time’s up.

Ones. Why won’t you let us help you?
I’ve done all I need to do to die a happy man, all except for one thing.
sure you don’t give up on love.
Please. Not that again. (She goes back to scrying.) Look, I’m just being
realistic, okay? I have been heartbroken so many times by love that I’m just
beginning to think that I’m supposed to live my life without it.
is ridiculous. Nobody is. I’ve been demonic without love, so I know what
I’m talking about. Love is transcendent. It’s miraculous. It’s also what
can save Piper and Leo.
well, I hope so, because if it can’t, I’m joining the convent.
(Phoebe puts the
crystal down. Paige orbs in.)
it looks as if the Elders had an original thought for once, because there’s
no precedence for what they’ve done to Leo.
We can’t find anything here either.
well, maybe I should try scrying for him. Maybe my Whitelighter side can tap
into something in him? (Phoebe
hands Paige the crystal.) It would be great to be able to tell Piper something
good for once.

match his photograph. He’s…too young.

That is not okay. That is not acceptable!

look, I don’t need to take a breath. I need to find my husband! (She hangs
up. She breathes heavily and starts going upstairs.) Oh god. Someone please
help me. (She collapses on the floor. She stands up and starts walking up the
stairs. She looks down to see her body.) Oh no. Am I dead again?

body appears in his arms.) Those pricks can be vicious. Pun intended. The
poison works slowly, but it’s also fatal.

Fatal? Okay, I don’t see any other choice. We’re gonna have to call the
Elders to heal her.

options or something.

we can do.

with a napkin.)

are you saying?
think she was trying to say something to us or at least tell Piper something.
Why would she tell Piper not to give up hope if all hope is already lost?
you think it’s some kind of test?
if it is, it’s one we’d better pass.
(Darryl walks over
with a file.)
besides the John Doe that you two found matching Leo’s description, you
know, my guys have come up with two more so far.
there any way we could speed this up?
I have as many men as I can on it without drawing suspicion from Sheridan.
(An officer walks
over, handing Darryl a file.)
looks like something you might want to see. John Doe just saved some guy’s
life in Texas.

front. The driver steps out. It’s the Male Elder.]

away. Drake crawls toward the book.) Come on, would you? I… (He notices the

anything about me or love.

have is powerful, enduring.

who he is, and I’m in a coma.

if Leo’s not here, we’ve got nothing.
we should have come here first instead of traipsing all over the map.
he can’t be far. The sheriff said that he just saw him here not too long
ago. (Nadine comes our.) Hi. Uh, maybe you could help us. Look, uh, we’re
looking for somebody, this guy right here. (Phoebe shows the photo of Leo and
Piper at their wedding.) Have you seen him?

left about an hour ago, hitched a ride on a big rig.

I think. Had some kind of California sign on the side.

not surprised. I
heard how you saved that man’s life back there.
else would have done the same thing.
Male Elder: There.
You are wrong there. Not everybody’s got the calling. Say, maybe this means
there are a whole bunch of somebody’s out there that need you. Maybe it’s
your love of helping others that you’re really looking for. You obviously
have the healing touch.
don’t know about that. Although it did seem familiar, like I had a purpose.
Male Elder: Perhaps
you were working for the greater good – you know, helping people when you
lost your memory. Maybe deep down, you sensed that the people that you were
helping still need you.
guess I have to hang in there till my memory comes back, huh?
Male Elder: Yep.
Listen to that inner voice.
know, you sound more like a man of the cloth than a truck driver.
Male Elder: In
a way, maybe I am. You learn a lot about life on the road. I mean, sure,
it’s lonely sometimes. But I take heart in knowing that whatever sacrifices
I make personally, I’m still bringing people what they need, and to me,
that’s what it’s all about. Say, I’m gonna be heading north here soon.
You’re welcome to join us if you want.
Male Elder: O-Others
who, uh, who think like I do. You know, who want to help. Of course, if you
think that you’re meant to be somewhere else, I mean, that’s okay, too.
Because, I mean, look, it’s up to you.
[Scene: Manor. Living
room. Cole and Piper are there.]
not quite sure what’s so hard to grasp. Love transcends every plane of
existence. All you need to do is believe in it with every fiber of your being
and just send it out to Leo.
does that mean? I don’t understand.
could never get through to you. I could always sense when there was something
wrong with Phoebe.
clearly Leo is not sensing that something is horribly wrong with me.
because he doesn’t know who you are, which means it’s gonna take a bigger
jolt from you to jog his memory.
know, it’s odd how invested you are in all of this, considering I’m the
one who helped vanquish you.
you know, bygones and all, but you’re changing the subject.
I am. (She stands up.) And this is not gonna go any further until you tell me
what you’re getting out of this.
(Piper nods.) I don’t know what you’re talking about.

to trust you, then you need to come clean first.
don’t want Phoebe to give up on love.
hasn’t been able to find love since me or at least hold onto it. And I know
that’s my fault.
maybe you should have thought of that before you decided to become the source
of all things evil.
I already feel guilty enough, all right?
why aren’t you talking to Phoebe about this instead of me?
you’re my only hope. I’m cursed to live in eternity without love for what
I’ve done, and I accept that. But I don’t want Phoebe to be cursed, too.
She needs love. She-she deserves it. But she’s not going to keep looking for
it unless you give her a reason to. Now, you and Leo are that reason.
All right. So how do I do this love beacon thing?
you need to do is let go so that you can move onto the next cosmic plane.
I see. You mean the one where I’m dead.
know it sounds crazy, but it’s the only way to get through to Leo.
I can’t. I have a family. I have boys that need me. Besides, that doesn’t
even make any sense.
it does. Think about how a person halfway across the world knows the instant
their loved one is hit by a car. It’s because they’re struck with a sudden
burst of love, a-a psychic shock, the kind of shock that can only come from
the total loss of a loved one. You need to let go. You need to die.
what happens when that doesn’t work? What happens when he doesn’t feel
this psychic jolt? Then I’m just plain dead. I can’t take that chance.
Besides, my sisters will figure out a way to save me. They always do.
then you risk losing Leo and your boys for good. Can you take that chance?
Big Rig. It stops where highway 40 meets highway 87.]

this is where I head north. What’s it gonna be?

can assure you, there is nothing more rewarding.
