Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 6 Review: When Sparks Fly

at .

This season is full of relationships worth marking "complicated" on Facebook.

Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 6 is full of flirtatious moments and heart wrenching storylines.

There's no denying that there's still chemistry between Maggie and Jordan.

It's unfortunate that poor Jordan's girlfriend had to witness sparks fly between the two of them on the karaoke stage.

Maggie and Jordan's flirty rendition of Ain't No Mountain High Enough was one of the best scenes of the episode. 

Actress Sarah Jeffery who plays the role of Maggie is also the star of Disney's hit musical fantasy Descendants 3, so she's no stranger to the microphone.

Maggie: I don't know how it works or why it works, but it does.
Harry: Then you need to get him alone and touch him everywhere.

She has a surprisingly sweet voice and a natural stage presence. 

Jordan, however, stole the show with his charisma. Who doesn't love a man who can sing?

It makes sense that Maggie's visions of the future were not attached to touching Jordan but to touching his ring.

The fact that Jordan's ring is a family heirloom and has magical properties makes me believe that Jordan may also have some magic in his blood. 

Maggie also alluded to the fact that Jordan could be dangerous when she told Mel about what she saw when she touched his ring the second time. 

Maggie: May I?
Jordan: It's a little early in the relationship for this.

The writers were clearly hinting at a potential darker storyline with Jordan than we've seen thus far. 

Jordan may not be as innocent as he seems. 

There were also major sparks flying between Macy and dark Harry. I hate to say it, but Macy and dark Harry have more chemistry than Macy and the real Harry.

Macy looked incredible in the sexy red dress she used to entice dark Harry.

Although it was obvious she was using dark Harry's feelings for her to take advantage of him, she seemed to enjoy their time together as much as he did. 

My heart almost jumped out of my chest when Macy and Harry slow danced together.

In spite of trying to kidnap the Charmed Ones, dark Harry didn't seem very dark after all. A part of me felt bad for him. 

After being imprisoned for years, he was released only to fall under the control of an unknown dark force (who apparently may not be a "he" according to dark Harry).

Macy revealed her dark side when she offered to deliver Abigael to dark Harry in place of her sisters.

It wasn't clear whether Macy's suggestion was just a diversion, or whether she actually would sacrifice Abigael to save her sisters. 

The fascinating part of this episode was the relationship between whitelighter Harry and dark Harry.

Whitelighter Harry clearly had a love/hate relationship with his darker half. After he killed dark Harry, he asked Macy to tell him what his darker half was like. 

We don't share a brain. We share memories. And feelings.

Harry

Macy didn't spare his feelings by telling whitelighter Harry that his darker version was both bold and charming. 

When Harry called his darker twin a monster, Macy surprisingly responded by saying he wasn't really a monster.

Harry should have used that opportunity to tell Macy how he really felt about her.

Harry: Macy, what was he like?
Macy: He was bold. Selfish. Charming. Twisted and tortured by what had happened to him, and you.
Harry: And now he's gone. And so so is that part of me. Forever.

Instead, Harry walked away from Macy without sharing his true feelings. 

Harry probably believes that his feelings for Macy will interfere with his ability to protect the Charmed Ones adequately. 

Harry and Mel - Charmed (2018)

Piper and Leo faced a lot of trials in the OG series because of their relationship, so I can understand why Harry might be hesitant to jump into a relationship with Macy.

If Harry really loves Macy, he has to speak up before it's too late! As the saying goes, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. 

Macy made it clear that she liked the bold part of dark Harry. If whitelighter Harry is not brave enough to tell Macy how he really feels, then maybe he's not the one for her. 

I love continued play with the idea that no human is all good or all bad.

While most of us love rooting for heroes who do the right thing even when it's hard, it's hard to identify with a seemingly perfect character who has no flaws.

Even though dark Harry died, it appears human Harry, or "Jimmy," will be the newest addition to the Harry crew.

Somehow, Jimmy's body has managed to stay fully intact in the grave since 1957.

It will be interesting to see how the storyline between Jimmy, whitelighter Harry, and Macy develops. 

If Jimmy is a mixture of both dark Harry and whitelighter Harry, then Macy will likely fall head over heels for him. 

Mel has played more of a supporting role for her sisters this season. 

Now that Maggie has a new power, Macy has her demon powers, and Harry can orb again, Mel is the only sister without any power.

I commend her for keeping her promise with her sisters not to get into any relationships.

She's been incredibly focused and has not allowed her feelings for the woman in the witch shop to interfere with her mission. 

I hope Mel's storyline picks up in the coming episodes.

Overall, this was a fun episode and slightly reminiscent of a young adult fantasy novel.

As always, I want to hear what you thought about this week's episode!

Will Maggie and Jordan's relationship continue to grow, or will she stay hooked on Parker?

Is Mel going to develop a new power like Maggie die?
