Paige introduced through Mitch bc they both work at social services. He's a social worker; the documents Prue saw were the file on his missing foster kid (the one he was trying to save). And he and Paige have been friends for years, which is why she's so easy to tease him about Prue later because "I'm your best friend, if I don't give you shit about not dating her, who will?"
And maybe Mitch is the one to realize she's half-Whitelighter; he didn't really recognize it before because it had been so long since his mom died, but after the adventures with Leo, he's full of "this is what a Whitelighter feels like" and he recognizes that energy from Paige, only it's muted so he figures she's half like he is, and he brings her to Prue and her sisters to meet.
And if we really want to get the humor going, the p's don't make the connection at first. they're like "oh, you're half-whitelighter, that's so interesting. y'know, our mom had an affair with her whitelighter. maybe your parents did too."
and Paige is like "I have no idea, my parents gave me up for adoption when I was a baby"
and the p's are like "oh, that's so sad" and just not getting it
and meanwhile mitch is sitting there going "HELLO, SHE'S YOUR SISTER!"
god i love a good dumber than a box of rocks premise. p4 all being besties and having No Idea they're related. casually making jokes like haha paige is like our fourth sister. she doesn't have any family so she's our family now. paige you're officially a member of the family! her meeting grams her meeting patty and they didn't even name her they don't know what she looks like so they're like what a lovely witchlighter <3 i hope your long-lost daughter has half the heart of her. and like. they keep casually mentioning it as like a non-possibility that paige thinks the timeline doesn't line up, which, to be fair, the girls think that it doesn't. like they'd remember if mom was pregnant. even if patty mentions having a daughter, they'd assume it was an eldest sister. someone that predate prue. paige's dream is in their book and they're like wow! we must have crossed paths in a past life! isn't that cool. mitch pulls leo aside like is paige they're half sister. and leo's like what ? and mitch is like. paige. like. p name witchlighter like could she be patty's daughter? and leo's like nah haha because.................................................. wait. and then they gotta figure out how to tell the sisters.
