In Charmed’s Season 3, Episode 5, Maggie discovers some new ways to use dance in her life to help others, apparently learning a new magical power.
WARNING: The following contains the main spoilers for Charmed. Season 3, Episode 5, “Yew Do You” which aired on Sunday on The CW.
Although the Charmed Ones have yet to cure their allergy to magic, their mortal lives have urgent demands to be heard. Maggie struggles to find a research topic for her psychology internship, Mel confronts the dean of her department who wants her to teach an outdated book on “trans identities” and Macy learns that she inherited SafeSpace after Julian’s death.
However, their personal lives and stressors come to a halt when The Charmed Ones uncovers a viral video of a woman named Julie Hoffman, who drove her car towards her beloved boyfriend while possessed by Omon’s demonic love spell. Although the sisters defeat Omon, it is Maggie who reigns supreme, unlocking a new facet of her empathy magic through dance.

Macy and Maggie find Julie by using Maggie’s power of vision at the scene of Julie’s car accident. The pair later find Julie in the nearby forest, carving Omon’s name on a tree. The sisters then take Julie mumbling and catatonic to the command center, where Maggie and Mel agree to babysit her while Mel tends to their newly inherited SafeSpace business.
In the command center, Maggie accidentally touches play on her studio playlist, causing Julie to subtly move. Mel notices and tells Maggie that the music seems to be reaching Julie somehow. Maggie responds that music is known to bring people back from catatonic states and decides to move around Julie and get closer to her. Julie begins to mimic Maggie, copying her dance moves as Maggie uses her powers to get Julie out. After a couple of quick laps, Maggie regains Julie’s consciousness, breaking Omon’s spell.
Until the “Yew Do You” episode, Maggie hasn’t really explored the range of her powers of empathy. Although she can read the feelings of others and make others feel or not feel certain emotions, this is the first time Maggie has connected movement with her power of empathy, seemingly unlocking a mimic skill. Julie was in a very suggestible state, suggesting that this could be why Maggie found it so easy to control her movements, but it could also be a promising sign that it’s a latent ability in Maggie that needs to grow. It remains to be seen if Maggie needs dance and music to use this power.
At the end of Season 3, Episode 4, there is a rift-like hole that opens in the world of The Charmed Ones, seemingly opening a way for ancient demons to enter their lives. The sisters will need all the help they can get, and a team mime would be a huge advantage in the fight.
Charmed stars Sarah Jeffery, Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, Rupert Evans, Jordan Donica, and Poppy Drayton. New episodes of Charmed air on The CW on Sundays at 9pm ET / PT.
