Whitelighter-in-training Paige (Rose McGowan) is given her first assignment by the Elders. She must act as guardian angel for an alcoholic derelict named Sam Wilder (Scott Jaeck) -- who, unbeknownst to Paige, is not only a fallen Whitelighter, but her own father to boot! Meanwhile, Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Leo (Brian Krause) encounter unexpected perils while interviewing prospective nannies for their unborn child. And Cole (Julian McMahon), unable to vanquish his "evil" side, desperately tries to maneuver the Charmed Ones into vanquishing him (in other words, he wants to commit witch-assisted suicide!).
