#1 The Honeymoon's Over: Aired Thursday, October 5, 2000

Piper returns from her orbing trip with Leo a month later, thinking only a day has gone by. "They" want to keep Piper and Leo apart, so Leo proposes to Piper, thinking that "they" might not be able to break up a holy union. Piper refuses at first, but after a brush with death happily accepts his proposal. The sisters fight mortals that are protected by guardian demons which are controlled by a judge. Phoebe develops a crush on a cute Assistant District Attorney, Cole Turner, whom she thinks is an innocent mortal. Just when they're about to get the judge, Cole secretly steps in and vanquishes the judge with magical fire. Phoebe discovers a new active power: she can levitate! Unfortunately, she's not very good at controlling it yet.

#2 Magic Hour: Aired Thursday, October 12, 2000

As Piper is trying to plan her secret wedding to Leo, the sisters encounter a star-crossed couple cursed by a sorcerer. Christopher spends his days as an owl while his love, Brooke, spends her nights as a wolf. The sorcerer has cursed them until Brooke comes to him as his wife, or there is a night within a day. Meanwhile, Phoebe fears that the repercussions of Piper's decision to secretly marry Leo aren't worth it. Grams comes back as a ghost to provide guidance. There is an eclipse, which not only breaks Christopher and Brooke's curse, but provides the perfect opportunity for Piper to marry Leo. Grams is ready to perform the ceremony when Leo is forcibly orbed out. It turns out that Cole, who was flirting with Phoebe and figured out about the secret wedding, informed the bad guys that he's working for about the wedding, who then informed the good guys, who then prevented it from taking place. Piper is devastated.

#3 Once Upon a Time: Aired Thursday, October 19, 2000

The sisters must help a girl who is being plagued by little trolls after saving the princess of the fairy world. They almost fail when Piper goes on strike demanding that the powers that be send Leo back to her. Piper realizes why personal relationships between witches and white lighters are so dangerous, and it is this realization that finally brings Leo back to her. The powers that be say that if Leo and Piper can demonstrate that their relationship will not endanger any innocents, then they can be together. Meanwhile, Cole continues to get closer to Phoebe and attempts to steal the Book of Shadows. Prue and Phoebe thwart his effort and see him in his demon form, but they still don't know that it's Cole.

#4 All Halliwell's Eve: Aired Thursday, October 26, 2000

Using the power of All Hallow's Eve, witches from the 1600s call on The Charmed Ones to come save a magically baby that is being born. The three sisters find, in their first attempt to save the soon-to-be-mother from the forces of evil, that they have no powers, and they must be educated in the origins of witches' power in order to complete their goal. Cole is also there, helping the forces of evil. Prue falls hard for a man who runs with witch hunters, but actually tries to undermine the forces of evil. The mother and baby are finally saved and they learn that they saved baby Melinda Warren before returning to their own time. Meanwhile, in the present, Leo and Darryl battle Grimlocks who have used Halloween as the perfect time to return from the dead and seek revenge on The Charmed Ones.

#5 Sight Unseen: Aired Thursday, November 2, 2000

When someone breaks into the Halliwells' house and smashes all the mirrors, Prue decides it's time to do some serious research on the triad, while her younger sisters think it might have been the work of a human, maybe a stalker. Meanwhile, Cole learns that his superiors have assigned an invisible demon to destroy the Charmed Ones. Prue starts to become suspicious of Cole when she sets a booby trap that catches him in the attic. What she doesn't know is that Cole was there actually trying to protect the three sisters from this new, invisible, threat. Then Prue's trap catches the invisible demon, proving her theory that the triad sent someone after them. However, what Prue doesn't know is that Piper's bartender, Abbey, is obsessed with her, and Prue almost dies by her mortal hand when she decides it's time to take over Prue's life. Piper has trouble having sex with Leo because she always feels like They are watching. Phoebe and Cole move beyond friendship.

#6 Primrose Empath: Aired Thursday, November 9, 2000

Prue follows what she thinks are signs from Them to a suffering man who is trapped in a loft about to be demolished. The man won't go outside because he feels all the emotions of the world, and the more people around him, the worse it is. Prue casts a spell to free him from this power, but accidentally picks it up herself. It turns out that the man is actually a demon assassin, Vinceres, and Cole/Belthazor set the whole thing up to free a fellow demon from a curse and get rid of Prue. As Prue starts to feel more and more emotions from the people around her, she starts to lose her mind from the pain of the world. Meanwhile, Vinceres goes after the priest/empath who originally cursed him. While trying to figure out how to free Prue from her new power, the Charmed ones find the priest, Father Thomas. Father Thomas helps Prue learn how to accept the emotions of the world instead of fighting them so she can channel the emotion into her witchy powers and defeat Vinceres, who is supposed to be unstoppable and immune to witches' powers. When Vinceres shows up at the house looking for Father Thomas, Prue kicks some Vinceres ass. Cole tries to push Phoebe away since he realizes that he's falling for her, but Phoebe won't let him. Cole is more and more torn between trying to destroy the Charmed Ones and starting to care for them.

#7 Power Outage: Aired Thursday, November 16, 2000

When Cole is urged by the Triad to hurry up and get rid of the Charmed Ones, he comes up with a plan to sic a rage spirit by the name of Andras on them. Andras takes the sisters' normal sisterly quarrels and turns them into a fight of such proportions that they use their powers against each other, break the Power of Three, and lose their powers entirely. Phoebe goes running to Cole to cry about her fight with her sisters, and Cole tries to knife her, but can't bring himself to do it. Andras busts him being nice to one of the witches he is supposed to kill, and possesses Belthazor to finish the job himself. The sisters try to mend their rift to get their powers back, and manage to do so just in time to fight off what they think is Belthazor... until a good smack makes Andras pop out of Belthazor. Belthazor kills Andras and then goes after the Charmed Ones. Piper manages to take a slice out of the demon's side which the sisters want to use to make a vanquishing potion. An injured Belthazor/Cole shimmers away. The Triad calls Cole to them to kill him for not completing his task. Before they can do so, he kills them first.

#8 Sleuthing with the Enemy: Aired Thursday, December 14, 2000

While Phoebe is trying to figure out why Cole has disappeared, Prue and Piper make a potion to vanquish Belthazor. When the older sisters use a spell to summon Belthazor so they can vanquish him, they attract Krell instead, a bounty hunting demon who the Source has sent after Belthazor. Prue, Piper and Krell unwillingly team up to find Belthazor while Phoebe finds a wounded Cole and gets Leo to come heal him. When Leo heals him, he realizes that Cole is not all human, and warns Phoebe that he thinks Cole is Belthazor. Meanwhile, Krell sniffs out Belthazor's blood on Cole's abandoned jacket and Prue recognizes it and realizes what Leo already knows. Leo, Prue, Piper, and Krell arrive to save Phoebe from Belthazor but Belthazor shimmers away with Phoebe held at knife-point. At the cemetary, Cole convinces Phoebe that he loves her and would never hurt her, proving it when he destroys Krell who tries to kill Phoebe. Phoebe tells Cole to run away and fakes his vanquishing so that her sisters and the Source will stop hunting him.

#9 Coyote Piper: Aired Thursday, January 11, 2001

An evil life essence created by a powerful alchemist possesses Piper's body just before her ten-year high school reunion and tricks Prue and Phoebe into helping her vanquish her creator. While a possessed Piper is making quite a scene dancing on the bar at her reunion, her sisters figure out what's going on. Prue figures out that without the power of three, the only way she can get the spirit out of Piper is to kill her sister, get the evil spirit to enter Leo's body, and then bargain with the spirit to bring Piper back to life. Her plan works, and then, using the power of three, the sisters drive the spirit out of Leo. Prue has a little reunion of her own with Justin Harper, and old classmate of Piper's that used to have a crush on the eldest Halliwell.

Prue and Phoebe see a little girl being sucked into an ice cream truck and while trying to save her they get sucked in too.

Prue and Phoebe help the kids escape, and then soon realize that they screwed up. Although the kids looked innocent enough, they're actually demon children. Phoebe has a vision of Prue as a child in the snowy playground with their father, and admits to her sisters that their father is in town. Although Prue is reluctant, they all agree to meet with their father, Victor. Victor admits that he saved Prue from that same truck when she was a child, and they enlist him to help save the ice cream man and trap the demon children again.

Of course, they do the exact opposite, and go after Eames, only to accidentally help him steal a Darklighters Whitelighter-killing crossbow. Natalie disapproves of Leo's casual rule-breaking, and the elders put her temporarily in charge of the Charmed Ones. They figure out that Eames is now going to try to kill a Whitelighter with the crossbow to steal the orbing power, then orb "upstairs" and kill all the Whitelighters. Natalie rigorously trains the Halliwells to steal back the crossbow, but when they confront Eames it's far too easy to succeed. Confused, they give the crossbow to Natalie, and the crossbow magically turns into Eames who kidnaps Natalie. Eames kills Natalie and steals her power to orb, but when he gets "upstairs" the Charmed Ones, along with Leo, have broken all the rules and are there waiting for him. They vanquish him, and the elders are so pleased that they lift their probation on Leo and Piper: our favorite couple is officially engaged!
