Friday’s episode of Charmed (The CW, 8/7c) is a biggie for Rupert Evans, both on screen and behind the camera. The penultimate hour of Season 2 marks Evans’ directorial debut, and TVLine has an exclusive first look at the Whitelighter’s creative process.
Last week’s episode ended with Macy finally confessing her feelings to Harry… only to discover that his time as the Faction’s prisoner has left him with a bout of amnesia. (D’oh!) Here’s what we can expect from Friday’s follow-up, per the official synopsis: “An urgent problem leads Mel and Maggie to seek help from their father, while Macy discovers a shocking secret about her past.”
Like every other broadcast series, Charmed was forced to shut down production last month in response to the coronavirus pandemic. According to the show’s writers, the cast was in the middle of filming Episode 20 when the shutdown occurred, so only 19 episodes have been completed. Evans directed Episode 18.
So while the May 1 episode may not feel like an official season finale, the writers promise that “many questions will be answered.” At this point, we’ll take the win.
