Sheridan is back from her coma, and remembers nothing about the Halliwells. Phoebe is outraged to learn the phone company has been overcharging for calls. Leo expects the Elders to punish him for his betrayal. Drake, a demon turned human, applies to be a teacher at Magic School and sympathises with Phoebe. The sorcerer who turned Drake needs him to use his powers before four weeks pass if he wants to get them.
- Ascended Demon: Drake made a deal with a sorcerer to become human, as he didn't want to be evil anymore.
- Big Bad Wannabe: The sorcerer wanted Drake's powers in order to begin his own conquest, and he's really feeling the pressure to get going now that Zankou is free.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Kyle freed Sheridan of her coma. While that is nice for her, she will cause major problems for the sisters down the line.
- Race Against the Clock: The four week deadline is there, but the real reason the sorcerer wants to step up his plan is because Zankou has begun a takeover of the Underworld. The sorcerer needs the powers in order to stand against him.
- Your Days Are Numbered: Part of his deal with the sorcerer meant that he only had a year left to live. By the time we meet him he only has four weeks of that year left.
