Charmed Ones Guild

Season 8 summaries were written by Ortal

8.01 Still Charmed & Kicking
The episode begins in the sisters' funeral, as they are all thought to be dead. Everyone is crying over their pictures, and Paige, seeing that no one stood by hers, decided to go on a desperate act and 'dress up' as Janis Dickenson (sp?) and cry over herself, understanding that she 'wasted' most of her life on magic more than anything else, but she also understands that she could never truly have life without magic when she is forced to answer a call from a new 'green' witch, Billie (Kaley Cuoco). On any case, after that they decide its time for them to adopt new identities in order to stop confusing their family, and Phoebe creates a spell that will reveal their true selves only to family members, while the outside world will see them as their other selves. Phoebe spots a co-worker in her funeral whom she never spoken to before, and asks him about it - getting a premonition of both of them being married. Piper is still a little worried about her demon free life and gets paranoid that they might found them out.

8.02 Malice in Wonderland
Hoping it will lure the Charmed Ones out of their alleged hiding, a demon uses the Alice in Wonderland fairy tale to lure teenagers with similar names to the hero of the story.

The sisters save her, and come to the conclusion that she could help them fight the demons in San Francisco while they can live their semi-magic-free lives.

8.03 Run, Piper, Run
Following the advice of Paige and Leo, Piper goes off on a job interview in order to find a new direction in her life. During the interview she gets shot (with a camera), and the image goes online for a background check. What Piper doesn't know, however, is that her new identity was taken from a model (Maya Holmes) who was framed for murder - and she only finds out about it when she goes to jail, and discovers that Maya is innocent, and that the D.A that she left for a younger guy killed him, and framed her. When Paige and Billie switch between Piper and Maya, Piper tells them what she found out and together they come up with a plan to stop the D.A from killing Maya.

On her date, the guy turns out to be quite dull (although hot ;)) but something else gets her attention. A woman marches up to meet non other then Phoebes new boyfriend, Dex. Paige gets immediately suspicious and decides to investigate, thinking that Dex is a real player and wanting to protect her sister from a heart-break. She eventually goes undercover as Sylvia (the girl Dex was meeting with) and finds out some inaccurate information. She hunts down Dex' in his own apartment and questions him about it as Sylvia, finding out the truth in the process (and having an encounter with Phoebe, who recognizes her as Paige). All the while, a demon in Mandy-The-Housewife suit is slowly getting Wyatts trust (while pushing all of Pipers buttons), and lures him into a very much demon-infested Magic School. Her true plan is to conjure up a demon from the wasteland - The Source. Billie is tired of having her nose in the books and asks Leo to go and experience the true essence of magic, in the Magic School. Leo is reluctant to agree, but Billie uses a potion to bring both of them in (forgetting the potion to bring them back out). They found out what happened to the school, and decide to go investigate (and try to find a spell to get them out as soon as possible, before any demons find their true identities). Billie comes back one the spell is found, while Leo stays behind to watch for his son. Piper discovers that Mandy is a demon, and she took Wyatt, and Phoebe pounces on Paige - raged that she interfered with her love life again, while Wyatt (with the help of the demon) manages to conjure The Source back, and now the sisters must find a way to destroy The Source, and save Wyatt.
