Synopsis by Rovi
Bad luck has come in spades for the Charmed Ones this week. Piper (Holly Marie Combs) may not be able to reopen P3 due to safety hazards; Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) is slapped with a lawsuit for giving bad advice in her newspaper column; and Paige (Rose McGowan) faces a long jail term after a car accident. Coincidence? No, this streak of misfortune is all the handiwork of the semi-demonic Cole (Julian McMahon), who hopes to get Piper and Paige out of the way, take over the girls' manor, and locate the Nexus of Magic -- all the better to regain Phoebe's love! Further muddying the waters is the fact that the Phoebe who is facing a lawsuit is not the "real" Phoebe, but a malevolent shapeshifter.
