Fans of the old Charmed series who never felt "right" giving The CW's take a fair shake should've been thrilled with the finale to the show's first season. Without going into heavy "spoiler territory," let's just say it looks like they won't have to worry about Macy (Madeleine Mantock), Mel (Melonie Diaz), Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), and Harry (Rupert Evans) treading on any of the previous series' "sacred ground." Even better? Fans of the current series can continue enjoying the series without the constant comparisons.
Which allows them to focus their full attention on this week's episode "Careful What You Witch For" – and that's good, because they're going to need it. Mel and Harry are going to have to do some serious DaVinci Code-type stuff with the Book of Elders that might requite a dimensional jump. Meanwhile, Macy has to find a way to balance the angel and devil on her shoulders – and from the looks of things, save the angel who's injured and desperate:
"Charmed" season 2, episode 3 "Careful What You Witch For": THE STRUGGLE IS REAL — While Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Harry (Rupert Evans) try to crack the Book of Elders, Macy (Madeleine Mantock) struggles with the good and bad aspects of her demon side. Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) competes with Jordan (Jordan Donica) for a promotion. Macy ventures out alone and meets an injured and terrified witch named Abigael (Poppy Drayton). Mel and Harry visit another dimension. Gina Lamar directed the episode written by Nicki Renna
