  • The Charmed Ones help a mermaid complete her quest for love and avoid the clutches of an evil sea witch that is out to take her immortal soul. Meanwhile, they all deal with life changes-Phoebe\'s new fame, Paige\'s job issues and Piper\'s pregnancy.

    This episode was a great season opener. The sisters all must find their footing in their roles in life. Phoebe struggles to handle her new fame as a columnist for the Bay Mirror, and find a way out of her disastrous marriage to Cole. Paige is having trouble coping with a promotion to social worker and finding time to handle her witchly duties at the same time. Piper and Leo are overjoyed about their expectant little one, but Piper is experiencing big fear that her baby will be harmed by her Charmed tasks. Despite all this, they have to step into their mystical shoes to save (of all things) a mermaid. The story makes for an interesting blend between the natural and supernatural aspects of the sisters lives, and makes them human and heroine in the same breath. It\'s this kind of quirky writing that makes a surreal subject like witchcraft so realistic to the show\'s fan base.
