  • A must watch episode! Not because it makes any revelations or because there are any great demon fight sequences (because there aren't), but simple because it'll make you laugh.

    The Akashic records, as legend has it, is a written account of all significant events throughout time. Should it fall into the hands of evil, in the words of Piper, 'the world's a goner'. What better prize could there be for knowledge collecting demons? Unfortunately these Collectors, though unable to decipher the key themselves, have found the innocent who has been able to crack the code, Eric.

    Eric's father (whose knowledge has already been drained by the Collectors) is being looked after in a hospital where (surprise, surprise!) Phoebe is temporarily working, thus making it very convenient for her to get her next premonition. She sees Eric being captured by the Collectors and his knowledge being drained by their lethal injection fingers. She rushes home to consult the Book of Shadows. Prue and Piper are having their own problems. Prue suspects that Jack, the Internet auction guy, is a warlock because he seemed to be in two places in the split of a second. Piper, while packing to attend a weekend with Dan, is trying to reassure herself of Dan's morality and gets a shock when Kit hisses at him, a trait she generally reserves for warlocks. The two decide to cast a Mind Reading spell in order to find out if these guys are really demons, of course they cast it before Phoebe informs them that all they had to do was prick the guy, as warlocks don't bleed. The spell turns out to be very 'informative' for the sisters, and hilarious for us, as Prue and Piper's telepathic conversations contain their thoughts before the filtering process. It does also prove that Dan is indeed an ordinary human being and that, contrary to suspicion, Jack is not a warlock, but a twin. His brother Jeff was just checking out Prue for his brother. (Another hilarious scene!)

    In the meantime, on returning home (just after Piper and Prue cast the spell) Phoebe finds all the information she needs about the Collector demons and she and Piper leave to save Eric, arriving in the nick of time. The demons decide that if they can't get to Eric, they'll bring Eric to them (the usual back up plan!). They kidnap his father and demand that Eric come alone to the park. Luckily the sisters read his mind and follow him, managing to use the demons powers against each other, however not in time to prevent a portion of Eric's and Phoebe's memory from being erased. This turns out to be a good thing, as Eric doesn't recall that the sisters are witches. Though Phoebe doesn't remember Eric either, they do meet again at the hospital. Does Phoebe get the cute guy in the end after all?
