While in the police station with Darryl, Phoebe touches an abandoned baby called Matthew and she has a premonition of a ghost killing the Matthew's father. She convinces Darryl to bring the baby home, where the inexperienced Halliweel sisters get into troubled situation. Meanwhile, Prue is preparing a presentation with Jack expecting to go to New York, and Dan helps Piper with Matthew. Prue discloses the father's name and sooner the sisters find that the ghost was the chauffeur of the family and he is killing all the men of the family as a revenge for his death.

"Reckless Abandon" is a very dark episode, with many deaths, but all of them simply forgotten because of the survival of the baby. The conclusion, with Alexandra van Lewen not grieving the loss of her husband and her mother-in-law, and happy with the baby in the police station, is at least ridiculous. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Abandonado" ("Abandoned")
