Quotes

Piper Halliwell: Maybe I should talk to Leo.
Phoebe Halliwell: Sure. Hold on a second.
[sees Leo floating while working on chandelier]
Leo Wyatt: Phoebe!
Phoebe Halliwell: Let me call you back
Leo Wyatt: Phoebe wait. I can explain.
Phoebe Halliwell: You are a warlock, aren't you?
Leo Wyatt: No. Wait. Wait. Wait. Think about it. If I was a warlock and I wanted to hurt you, don't you think I would have done it the last time I was here?
Phoebe Halliwell: OK. Good point, but still most normal handymen use ladders to fix chandeliers. Are you a witch?
Leo Wyatt: no.

The Whitelighter – The Guardian of the Good Witches
21 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the young witch Max is kidnapped by two thieves to use his power to heist a bank, he communicates with Prue through a Ouija Board, and she helps the boy. Meanwhile, Piper is having trouble with the new chef of Quake, and the handyman Leo returns to help the Halliwell sisters to fix the chandelier. When Phoebe sees him floating in the air, he discloses that he is a Whitelighter, the guardian of good witches assigned to protect the Halliweel sisters, and he was not allowed to fall in love for a witch as he did for Piper. He asks Phoebe to keep the secret, while he tries to find the best way to end his relationship with Piper.

"Secrets and Guys" is an underrated episode of "Charmed" with two good stories. The lead one, about the boy Max, is flawed, since Prue discloses her ability to the criminals, and they do not die in the end, therefore jeopardizing Max and Prue's secrets. The parallel one, also very entertaining, about the powers of Leo and his impossible love for Piper. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Segredos e Homens" ("Secrets and Men")
