Charmed (Reboot) – Season 4, Episode 5 (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Sandwich)

This episode was, I felt, the best of the series so far, and I’ll tell you why.

Interestingly, the episode kicks off by focusing on Donnie, a hobgoblin who lost his job at Ripples, the spa the sisters visited in the previous episode. His wife, Loretta, begs him to get a job, but he spends his days eating cereal and listening to a conspiracy theorist’s GemCast on how the Charmed Ones are being selfish. We are briefly shown Donnie’s mental state eventually deteriorating as he becomes sucked in by the conspiracy theorist, culminating in Loretta leaving him.

Meanwhile, Mel has been practicing her new time travelling power (according to the Charmed Wikia it’s called Temporal Manipulation) by making a sandwich, sending it back in time and travelling back to retrieve it. Moments later, she walks into SafeSpace and sees Ruby. Ruby tells her that the homeless shelter for LGBT teens that she volunteers at has been shut down, so she and Swan set up a temporary one at SafeSpace. Ruby and Swan also tell Mel that they have been dating for the last couple of months.
