Charmed Season 1 Episode 17 Recap
In the previous episode of The CW’s Charmed, the Charmed Ones discovered that Charity killed Marisol. In Charmed Season 1 Episode 17, Harry faced the consequences of his affair with Charity while the sisters hunted a virility demon.
Niko asked Mel to come over. Scarlet, a woman she gave her card to, escaped to her apartment. Her memory was fuzzy, but Niko believed a cult had held her captive for a month. Because of Mel’s involvement with the Sarcana, Niko thought Mel would be a good resource.
The Charmed Ones determined they were dealing with Viralis, a virility demon. Viralis needed ten women to sacrifice themselves to maintain his virility and life force. He offered them their greatest desires before asking them to surrender, effectively hypnotizing them. Since Scarlet last remembered reading a sad poem at the student union, Maggie volunteered to serve as bait. She read a poem at the student union, and he immediately went to her. Her deepest desire was a love that would never leave.
After Harry helped them fix Charity’s tracker, which Maggie had on her, they were able to track her down to a barn. Macy and Mel found the women in the middle of the ceremony. Maggie fought Mel, while Macy went after Viralis. She threw his dagger at his crotch and vanquished him.
Harry had broken the rules by sleeping with Charity. To punish him, the Elders took his powers away. Without his powers, he would age quickly to 98 years old, the age he should be. He offered to help the Charmed Ones for as long as he could.
Mel used her powers in public to get the Elders’ attention. She fought for the restoration of Harry’s powers, considering they were the Charmed Ones and more powerful than the Elders. Unfortunately, it didn’t work.
Harry wanted to see Fiona. When Mel asked Jada, she refused to help her. Mel rejected the Sarcana and broke up with Jada. At the barn, Jada helped Fiona try to get into Harry’s mind. Later, Fiona visited at the house under the guise of helping Harry. She took him to the temple under the house and de-aged him. Fiona tried to break into Harry’s mind again and took him with her.
Maggie wanted to serve as bait for Viralis to get demon blood for Parker. Although it would reverse the progress Parker made on his mother’s serum, he needed demon blood, and Alistair wasn’t an option for them. Macy was able to get a vial of demon blood from Viralis.
Julia refused to let Maggie see Parker since he would get worse before he gets better. When she went to administer the second dose of blood, he appeared to be full shadow demon.
