Storyline

In Chinatown, on the day of his birthday, Mark Chao is killed by the chief of a gang, Tony Wong, without any apparent motive. His body is burned in an alley, and the police wrongly identify the corpse as being the mobster Tony. The spirit of Mark contacts Piper and Phoebe asking for help, once if he is not buried in a short time, the gatekeeper of the gates of hell Yama would take his soul to hell. Piper helps Mark and they fall in love for each other. Meanwhile, Piper and Phoebe are organizing a surprise party for Prue's birthday and Phoebe works as a psychic in the lobby of a hotel to earn money and buy a gift for Prue. When Phoebe foresees the death of one guest, she tries to save his life. Prue meets Andy having lunch with his ex-wife and she feels betrayed. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In Chinatown, on the day of his birthday, Mark Chao (John Chao) is killed by the chief of a gang, Tony Wong (Joe Hoe), without any apparent motive. His body is burned in an alley, and the police wrongly identify the corpse as being the mobster Tony. The spirit of Mark contacts Piper and Phoebe asking for help, once if he is not buried in a short time, the gatekeeper of the gates of hell Yama would take his soul to hell. Piper helps Mark and they fall in love for each other. Meanwhile, Piper and Phoebe are organizing a surprise party for Prue's birthday and Phoebe works as a psychic in the lobby of a hotel to earn money and buy a gift for Prue. When Phoebe foresees the death of one guest, she tries to save his life. Prue meets Andy having lunch with his ex-wife and she feels betrayed.

"Dead Man Dating" is the best episode of "Charmed" so far. The impossible love of Piper and Mark is very beautiful. Phoebe wearing costumes of odalisque is very funny. The distrustful and insecure Prue has a great problem to trust on Andy. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Um Encontro com um Morto" ("A Dating With a Dead")
