A pair of vicious thugs kidnap a 13-year-old boy when they learn he has special powers. The boy is able to send cryptic cries for help to Prue, who enlists the help of Phoebe to find the boy before he is used in a bank robbery.
Meanwhile, Piper is happily surprised when her beau Leo reappears only to leave again. When Phoebe catches Leo doing some of his own magic, his secret is revealed. Leo is a guardian for witches, who returned to help the young boy. Although he loves Piper, he cannot live among witches or mortals. Even though Phoebe spills the beans about Leo's secret identity and reason for leaving, Piper disregards Phoebe's confession as a sisters sympathy and believes Leo left because he just wanted to leave.
