Perry reports on an attack on Glandus High where the students have been drained of their magic. A few weeks later, he reports live on the scene of the petrification of Eda Clawthorne. As he is reporting, Gus comes over to him while Willow takes his microphone and leads the crowd in a protest over Eda's freedom. Perry listens as Emperor Belos but soon proclaims that the Titan desired Eda to be set free.

A few weeks later, Perry is enraged upon learning of his son's expulsion from Hexside, having a crow phone drag Gus home and grounding him.

Watching and Dreaming - 4603

During the Day of Unity, Perry and many other witches and demons with sigils have their magic drained by the Draining Spell.

Perry is turned into a puppet for months after the Day of Unity when Belos was defeated, but is returned to normal and happily reunites with his son after Belos is defeated.

Four years later, he would attend Luz's belated quinceañera and watched the Collector put on a light show.
