Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Past is Present

at .

Maggie, Mel, Macy, and Harry were all forced to fight their own inner battles on Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7.

The tension between Macy and Harry was thick as thieves. 

Harry was clearly bothered by the fact that Macy was attracted to his darker half.

It's ironic that while Macy was attracted to dark Harry, Abby is attracted to Harry as a whitelighter.

Harry made no effort to shut down Abby's very forward sexual advances.

It's possible that there's a part of Harry that likes the attention from Abby.

Maggie: So how do you feel about Harry?
Abigael: I find him adoringly wretchedly endearing and I'd love to corrupt him in a sexual way. Bloody hell. 

Abby is beautiful and alluring in spite of her attitude, and Macy knows it.

There's also a chance Harry just liked the fact that Macy was jealous.

Abby and Harry would make a terrible match, so Macy has nothing to worry about.

Other than a few snide comments, Macy has handled the awkwardness in her relationship with Harry remarkably well.

Harry: Do you really think I'd be that stupid? She's dangerous.
Macy: Yeah well, sometimes danger can be exciting. 
Harry: Not when you're thinking clearly. 

It's amazing that Harry and Macy are still able to work so well together.

Macy's maturity and ability to handle herself with grace in tough situations is part of what makes her so attractive. 

Macy and Abigael Face Off - Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7

Macy's fight scene with Jordan was wildly entertaining. What's not to love about watching two hot people go at it with boxing gloves?

The look on Jordan's face when Macy took a cheap shot was epic. He had no idea what he was dealing with when he agreed to spar with Macy.

Macy: I'm starting to think we'd be better off without you all together. 
Abigael: Oh, someone's getting rough.

The collection of clips of Macy battling demons after Jordan asked her if she had any fighting experience was a great humorous addition to the scene. 

Harry looked like such a creeper stealing Jordan's ring in the background.

Harry in the Woods - Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7

Although the writers have spent a great deal of time on Jordan's storyline, his role is the most confusing on the show.

He's not a clear love interest for Maggie, as far as we know he doesn't have any powers, and he has no idea that Maggie and her sisters are witches. 

Macy and Harry spent most of the episode trying to discover the secret behind Jordan's ring, but they probably should have gone with Maggie and Abby in case they were needed instead.

Abby is not trustworthy, and Maggie has no active powers, so it was not wise of Macy and Harry to send them to face Parker alone.

Despite the time and distance between them, Parker and Maggie did not skip a beat. 

There is so much natural chemistry between them. With Parker as the new Overlord, I couldn't help but think about Phoebe and Cole from the OG series. 

Maggie and Parker Reunite - Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7

Unlike Cole, Parker seems to have less of a mind of his own.

From his dad to Godric, to Maggie, Parker is always being controlled by someone. I hope over the course of this season that he develops a thicker skin and more of a mind of his own.

Macy: And so, if someone had stolen some of that fruit... 
Harry: They'd be unstoppable.

Parker's notion that he will be able to bring the demons together to create a more peaceful existence is incredibly naive.

Demons are characteristically selfish beings.

Even Parker admitted that the demons only respect power. He uses fear to control them.

Parker is going to be in for a rude awakening when he realizes it's not going to be as easy as he thought to create peace amongst demons and witches.

Nonetheless, Parker and Maggie seem destined to be together.

I melted into my chair when Parker asked Maggie to marry him. Nothing is stronger than true love! 

Maggie broke her promise to her sisters not to let her love life distract her when she hooked up with Parker.

She hesitated before initially kissing him, but their attraction was too strong for her to ignore.

Mel is going to have a heart attack when she finds out about Parker's proposal. 

Unlike Maggie, Mel honored her promise not to get into a relationship, and she let Katrina leave town.

That crazy text you sent saved my life. 


Mel and Katrina's relationship is also slightly confusing.

Although they appear to have some type of bond, Mel refuses to tell Katrina that she's a witch.

Katrina didn't even question why Mel also saw worms, or how her mysterious text message saved Mel's life.

Maggie is Fierce - Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7

It seemed out of character for Mel not to be more intrigued by the fact that her dead mother was communicating with Katrina.

It was also strange that Mel willingly accepted the keys to Katrina's shop since the two don't know each other very well.

The overarching plot of the series (if one exists), is becoming hard to follow.

For starters, the Charmed Ones have made minimal effort to get their powers back.

Since the Power of Three is their legacy, it's surprising that this hasn't been more of a focus for the sisters.

The sisters have also managed to remember a remarkable number of spells for not having the Book of Shadows.

When Macy sees Maggie hold up a white potion before she and Abby travel to see Parker, she immediately recognizes that Maggie is holding a truth potion.

As new witches, their sudden mastery of spells and potions doesn't make the most sense.

I was also disappointed that after seeing Jimmy's eyes open in the grave on Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 6, Jimmy was nowhere to be found in Episode 7. 

Abigael In a Robe - Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 7

Godric's betrayal of Parker and alliance with Abby, however, does seem like it has the potential to be an exciting new storyline.

Like always, I want to hear from you!

Do you think Maggie should accept Parker's marriage proposal? 

Will the Charmed Ones be able to save Jordan from his untimely death?

Will Abby be successful in reclaiming her position as the demon Overlord?

If you didn't catch this week's episode, you can watch Charmed (2018) online!

Charmed airs Fridays on the CW.
