When criminal mastermind and Prue's former flame Bane Jessup  is attacked by a powerful demon named Litvack , he manages to escape, but kidnaps Prue to force her to use her powers to save him from certain death. The mutual attraction between Prue and Bane is even stronger upon their second meeting, and after Piper and Phoebe "rescue" Prue from a compromising situation, she convinces her reluctant sisters to trust Bane enough to follow his plan to destroy the demon.

Meanwhile, the spell Phoebe casts to help Piper decide between Leo and Dan only adds to her confusion.

Trivia: Litvack is the last name of a writer & producer for the series. Steve Railsback who played Litvack is the first actor credited as a "special appearance".

 

  • The second appearance of Antonio Sabato Jr. as criminal Bane Jessup. The fans liked the chemistry between Prue and Bane so he made a second appearance.
  • The Source is mentioned for the first time in this episode (although he was mentioned before as a "he" in Season 1).
  • Throughout the episode, Piper keeps receiving signs that seem, to her, to point either to Leo or to Dan as her ideal husband. She and Phoebe, however, decide that the signs are really pointing out to them where they need to go to find Prue. This is in fact not true: all of the signs that seem to point to Dan are in fact useful for finding Prue, but some of the references to Leo have no such apparent purpose. For example, Leonardo's Boutique in Bodega Heights: Bodega Heights, which Piper initially takes refer to Dan, is in fact meant to be taken literally, but there is no significance to the fact that the store is called Leonardo's.

 

Goofs: When Piper confronts Phoebe about casting the spell to help her decide between Dan and Leo, Phoebe's finger jumps to the back of her ear, then disappears. In a following shot, her finger is now resting on her neck.
