"Oh, I am not going anywhere with you people. You burst in here talking about Pandora's Box and guardians and witches and god knows what else. Now you expect me to leave with you."
—Hope to Piper and Phoebe.[src]

Hope is a student at Berkeley University with her best friend Darcy. Upon the death of the previous guardian, Hope received Pandora's Box and became its new guardian.

History[]

Hope2

Hope discovering the box.

Hope received the box after Nina, the previous guardian was killed by Katya. Without knowing anything about the box, she opened it and accidentally released a wave of sorrow. Meanwhile, Katya shapeshifted into Nina and asked the Charmed Ones for help in finding the box. When she and Piper found Hope, Kayta revealed herself and attacked, though Piper forced her to retreat after a battle that destroyed Hope's dorm room.

The sisters took Hope to the manor and explained what was happening. Hope was unwilling to accept her destiny, unsure if she really believed in magic. Hope then got a call from Darcy asking to meet. When Wyatt orbed into the room, Hope freaked out and accidentally blasted Phoebe before running away.

Hope met with Darcy, who turned out to be a disguised Katya. She forced Hope to open the box by threatening to kill the real Darcy, to which Hope complied, releasing the sorrows.

Hope8

Hope protecting herself.

After Pandora's box was opened, Katya double-crossed Hope and prepared to kill her, though Hope managed to blast her weapon away and the Charmed Ones arrived. Katya pretended to retreat, but instead shapeshifted into Darcy and went with Hope and the sisters. She tried to convince Hope not to trust the sisters, though they suspected it was Katya. Paige then switched places with Hope by glamouring into her and went with Kayta.

When Katya took her to the Underworld, she tried to kill Hope. However, as Paige had taken her place, she vanquished Kayta and returned home with Darcy and Pandora's Box.

At the manor, the sisters realized that Hope was able to return the sorrows to the box. Hope didn't believe she could, though Darcy mentioned that the last thing in the box was hope. Feeling supported by this, Hope was then able to call back the sorrows and begin her life as Guardian.
