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.
