Charmed Season 1 Episode 11 Recap
In the previous episode of The CW’s Charmed, the Charmed Ones rescued Harry from Tartarus, and Macy discovered that she and Maggie share the same father. In Charmed season 1 episode 11, Macy broke the news to Maggie and Mel.
Unfortunately, Mel and Maggie didn’t take the news well, despite Macy’s excitement at another clue. Mel felt that she didn’t know Marisol if she kept so many secrets. For Maggie, it was a lot to handle after Parker and her stint in Tartarus.
Macy cast a spell to help her find the truth. She found a box of old letters between her father, Dexter, and Marisol. They wrote to each other up until he died and were still in love. He knew about Maggie and would give Marisol updates on Macy. However, when Macy shared the letters with Maggie, they found another devastating secret. Dexter and Marisol had done something to bring Macy back from the dead that could be unforgivable.
The director of the Hilltones, the college’s acapella group, went to Athens and found an old pitch pipe. Mr. Miranda blew into it, and a demon possessed him. Maggie auditioned for the group right after hearing the news, and he loved her sad take on a normally happy song. Lucy was also in the group. They were on good terms. However, Lucy had an acapella nemesis, Effie, who always got the solo.
Mr. Miranda had the Hilltones drink a special tea. He arranged a mournful, dissonant version of “Killing Me Softly”, and gave Effie the solo. When she suggested something more upbeat, he trapped her soul. When Mr. Miranda said Effie quit and gave the solo to Lucy, Maggie touched the pipe hanging around his neck and heard Effie screaming for help.
The Book of Shadows told them that sirens used the pipe, so at the big performance, Maggie tried to vanquish him with a spell for sirens. Unfortunately, he wasn’t a siren, but their director, The Maestro. The notes the girls were singing were trapping the audience’s souls. They needed the Power of Three to vanquish him, but they needed to clear the air first. Galvin played “The Devil’s Tritone” on the pipe to release the trapped souls inside. Maggie got the Hilltones to sing a mash-up to reverse the effects of the song on the audience.
Mel came clean to Jada about her reason for joining the Sarcana. Jada already knew since they had an empath, but she felt that Mel would come to understand their point of view. Together, they magically stopped a man at the club from putting a pill in a woman’s drink and administered their own magical justice.
Unfortunately, Niko was there; she had been taking pictures of Mel and Jada. She was working as a private investigator. Niko warned Mel about Jada being part of a cult. Mel told Jada about Niko and the investigation.
