Maggie continues to be carried by the charming Rebecca Rittenhouse in an episode that doesn’t live up to her talents.

Maggie season 1, episode 11 recap
This episode of Maggie is moving towards Amy’s wedding. Of course, the inevitable secret will come out between Jessie and Maggie. Oh, and we find out exactly why Dave is such a great guy.
Maggie is feeling apprehensive about going to Amy’s bachelorette weekend. Instead of rooming with her best friend Louise, she has been placed with Ben’s girlfriend, Jessie, for some reason. We first think this happened because Amy wanted to room with Louise, with whom she has forced her friendship. However, Maggie discovers she was put with Jessie because she requested it. Why? Because Amy’s friend Mindy frustratingly always steals Jessie’s thunder or just, like, her seat at a table. Anything that pushes her back into the crows. One would wonder why she would not room with Amy, going out with her brother and all, but this creates genuine suspense and conflict in the episode.
When they go out to dance at a club, the group finds out no other friends of Amy are coming. She says most have prior engagements like jobs, kids, or family. We are guessing that she has pushed most friends away with her pushy personality. As she puts it pathetically later, the best three girls a friend could have included her brother’s girlfriend, her brother’s neighbor, and that person’s childhood friend. The girls find this surprising, even Louise calling her a loser behind her back as she forces Maggie onto the dance floor. She does not want to go because she has been inundated with visions lately. This does not help matters since every time she touches someone, another comes racing in. The experience has become overwhelming for her. Maggie looks like she may pass out, and then she loses her vision.
Remember when Amy was mad and said, “Damn it, Dave!” when Maggie reported he had a vision that he wanted a full-sized cake for the wedding? Well, he deserves one because we find out Amy’s fiancé is a great guy. When Ben wants to take him out for his bachelor party, he starts to name things he wants to do. Like, see a screening of Moulin Rouge downtown. Ben brings up how about something more “bachelorly”? Dave responds, “Jersey Boys?” Ben notices these things that Amy would like to do, and he loves making her happy, so he loves doing these things for her.
This is where I would recommend trying to distract any woman from watching Maggie because the character of Dave is about to mess with your life to the third degree. Ben suggests they go to a rage room to get some aggression out. They do, but Ben finds out Dave has been anxious and scared the entire time. Where do they end up? Watching a documentary on seahorses mating, he even tells Ben that he thinks the man should carry the baby for the woman.
Damn it, Dave.
Meanwhile, Maggie calls Angel about her issues without seeing her psychic abilities. He tells her it can happen, and often they may get them back. So, not the concrete words she wanted. He gives her a name, Marcus May, who, by coincidence, lives near the hotel. Maggie does not want to tell Amy because it would take the attention off her weekend, but Louise spills the beans, and the four are off to Mr. May’s house. When they arrive, he has never gotten them back, but he wonders why Maggie wants them around? His life has been remarkably freeing since the life change and loss of his insights.
The girls wait for Maggie while they discuss the cowardly lion had nothing in his nether regions. (Which was never a problem for Louise before when she drooled over Mufasa in a previous episode). Maggie comes out excited about the new possibilities. She ends up drinking too much that night and partying too hard. She wakes up with a hangover and still cannot regain her powers.
