Plot Overview

Paige and Henry assist one of Henry's parolees into getting a loan, but upon being rejected, he runs his car into the bank and holds every hostage at gunpoint. However, when Billie arrives to enlist in Paige's help to track down a Possessor demon, the demon takes control of Henry's parolee and makes matters worse in an attempt to get back at Billie for nearly killing him. During the ruckus, Henry gets shot and this moment triggers Paige's ability to heal on her own, thus saving Henry's life.

Meanwhile at the Manor, Piper and Phoebe deal with Wyatt's third birthday party. Things get crazy when a dejected Wyatt makes his toys life-sized using his powers to animate them.

  • The episode wasn't terribly bad, but it wasn't exactly spectacular. Wyatt conjuring up the Village People turned out to be an unintentionally hilarious moment and for the most part, the party scenes were mildly better than the main plot. Grade: C --Contrivance 20:38, 7 February 2007 (EST)
