"Charmed" Season 2: "The Rules of Engagement" Has Deadly "Fine Print" for Maggie, Parker [PREVIEW]

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 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 – and for the show's creators, the sandbox of creative possibilities now knows no bounds.

And it looks like those creative possibilities are getting blown wide open heading into this week's midseason finale "The Rules of Engagement" – and considering how last episode ended? We're pretty sure you know where this is heading.

But what could go wrong with Maggie and Parker (Nick Hargrove) getting married, and then heading off for a couple's "corporate restructuring" of the underworld? I mean, it's not like Abigael (Poppy Drayton) and Godric (Nathan Witte) are scheming behind Parker's back or anything…

Let's just say that's only the beginning of Mel, Macy, and Harry's concerns – and don't get us started on them!

"Charmed" season 2, episode 8 "The Rules of Engagement": MID-SEASON FINALE – Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) makes a life-changing decision that her sisters and Harry (Rupert Evans) fear will destroy her. Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, Jordan Donica and Poppy Drayton also star. Kelli Williams directed the episode written by Zoe Marshall.

The reboot of the iconic series "Charmed" is back for its second season and the Charmed Ones are thrust into a New World Order unlike anything they've ever imagined. After the tragic loss of their mother in season one, the three sisters came together to discover they are formidable witches, and under the guidance of their White Lighter Harry, the Power of Three successfully stopped the impending apocalypse. But saving the world is a tall order, especially when you're not even sure what your place is in that world and now the whole magical community is looking to you.
