Jada tells Mel that Fiona is still alive and Jada asks Mel not to tell anyone including her sisters. Jada tells Mel that the elders were scared of Fiona because she was born to the keeper of the sacred flame, the source of magic, and she joined the Sarcana. Mel finally returns from Ireland and Maggie is angry at Mel because Maggie couldn’t get in touch with her for an entire day. They get in an argument, and Maggie touches Mel to try to hear what she’s thinking.

They go to sleep, and when they wake up, they are in each other’s bodies. They call Harry, and he says because Maggie touched the wall in the vortex under the house they switched bodies. Harry says that switching bodies is a more advanced version of feeling the other person’s emotions. Macy has a dream about someone turned into stone, and she goes for a run outside and sees the person she saw in her dream turned into stone and thinks she did it in her dream. The girls and Harry go to look at the statue. Macy thinks because she touched the wall of the vortex, the demon part of her has awakened.
