The Charmed Ones try to help Mylie by getting Craig to tell her he loves her, but she is kidnapped by the Sea Hag. Phoebe tries to get a divorce, but a very powerful Cole reappears at the last minute and declares his love for her. The Sea Hag can only be found by a mermaid, so when Paige casts a spell to find her, Phoebe is turned into a mermaid. Piper finds herself paralyzed by fear with her new pregnancy, and stays behind while Leo, Paige and Phoebe save the mermaid and finally get her boyfriend to admit his true feelings. Once their mission is accomplished, Phoebe decides she enjoys the freedom of the sea, and decides to escape Cole by remaining a mermaid. Cole tries to do good deeds to prove to Phoebe he's no longer evil.

Piper, disgusted by her panic attacks, casts a spell to make herself fearless. Phoebe continues to swim away her troubles, while Cole continues to try to prove his goodness.
