Significant Moments


Season 2

Dan first moved into the neighborhood in 1999 next door to the sisters with his niece, Jenny Gordon, who befriended the sisters the same day.

After some time, Dan found himself attracted to Piper, but didn't want to show his affection due to fear of rejection. Piper soon found out and genuinely returned his feelings. Soon they became a couple, though Dan sensed tension whenever Leo Wyatt, her ex-boyfriend, was around. Despite honesty in their relationship, Piper found herself unable to share with Dan the knowledge about her being a witch who often had to fight dark forces.

When Piper almost died from Oroya Fever, Leo healed her and lost his wings. Piper felt responsible for this and took him under her care, a fact of which Dan was jealous. Piper eventually realized her true feelings for Leo and reluctantly broke up with Dan to give their relationship another try.

He tried to find information about Leo's past, and was surprised when he only found the identity of a man who died in World War II. In the season finale, Piper wished for Dan to move on with his life, and an eavesdropping genie granted it, giving Dan a job in Portland but consequently making him age in a matter of hours. Piper and Leo then revealed their true identities, which Dan did not take well even after his youth was restored. Piper then wished for Dan to forget what he knew while he was old and to truly move on without consequences.
