In this night and in this hour
I call upon the Ancient Power.
Bring back my sister,
Bring back the Power of Three.
Piper and Phoebe Halliwell are devastated by the loss of their big sister, Prue. But even in their grief they can't forget that they, too, are in mortal danger. The power of the Charmed Ones has been broken, leaving them prey to every form of evil. Even Leo, their Whitelighter, and Cole, Phoebe's demon boyfriend, can't protect them.
In frustration and despair, Piper casts a spell to summon a lost witch and bring back her beloved Prue. The spell does work, but not as Piper intended. A lost witch is found—heir to a shocking Halliwell family secret. But can Piper and Phoebe persuade her to assume her powers and complete the Power of Three?

With a target on her back and pulled by either side, she must make a decision to either fight on the side of good or evil within the next forty-eight hours.

- When magic was exposed in "All Hell Breaks Loose", Phoebe and Leo went down to the Underworld to convince Cole to help them reach the Source so that he may command Tempus to reverse time. In the original, Phoebe went down to turn Cole good again and Leo went down to tell her about the exposure; Cole approached the Source in hopes of finding a way to convince him to reverse time.
- Cole decided against letting Phoebe cross over to the dark side and brought her home at the last minute after time was reversed.

- Darryl called Phoebe after they saved Cole to let them know that Cortez was no longer out to expose them.
- Paige mentions Sister Agnes last saw her on August 22th, instead of August 2nd.
- Cole's brief confrontation with the Source was cut out.
