Pretending to be a new neighbor, Gaxageal appeared at the manor with a plate of pastries. Although he pretended to be friendly, he refused to shake hands with Henry due to "germs" and quickly left. The sisters instantly suspected something was wrong and Paige cast a spell on the pastries, revealing them to be evil. Some time later, Gaxageal stormed the manor while Piper was on the phone with Prue, angry that the sisters were not dead yet.
Three months later, the sisters dicussed how Gaxageal attacked three times already and mentioned they had expelled him each time. They found an entry in the Book of Shadows about the Old Ones and learned that they needed to strike his heart to defeat him. Cole later informed them of Gaxageal's location and revealed that the Old Ones were only vulnerable in their true form.
Just as the sisters set out to confront him, Gaxageal and his minions attacked the manor. After the sisters vanquished the minions, Gaxageal revealed his true form and grabbed the sisters with his tentacles. The sisters then cast a vanquishing spell, but it only managed to weaken him. Acting on an impulse, Paige then called for his heart. With his heart gone, Gaxageal exploded in slime.
