Corrected entry: Why did Phoebe have to write a spell to vanquish the warlock in this episode? When they have vanquished warlocks before they used the power of three spell, "the power of three will set us free".
New this month Correction: Spells work best when written to deal with a specific demon or type of demon. There are many demons who they write spells for, and others they simply use what worked for their ancestors who then wrote the spell in the Book of Shadows.
Corrected entry: The seer tells Cole that his son will be a force of good magic unless he marries Phoebe in a dark ceremony, but in 4-1 "Charmed Again" Cole and Leo tell them about the 48hr window where a new witch gets to choose whether they are good or evil.
New this month Correction: The seer was predicting the future of the child they would have if the dark wedding was not performed. Since the child would be raised as a witch, without the dark ceremony, the 48 hour window relating to a witch just finding out about their powers would not apply.
Corrected entry: There are many references in this episode to Phoebe using a power-stripping potion on Cole. But it wasn't Phoebe who used the potion on Cole; it was Emma, the fiancée of one of his victims.
New this month Correction: Since Phoebe tricked Emma into using the power-stripping potion on Cole by allowing her to think it was a potion to vanquish him, it can be accurately stated that Phoebe was the one who stripped Cole of his powers.
Corrected entry: When someone dies, the sisters can see their spirit, but when Prue died you couldn't see her spirit.
Correction: This was explained by Grams that Prue was busy, in other words she is letting the living sisters move on with their life and Prue is getting use to being dead.
Corrected entry: Paige realises at the end that time went on in her own dimension at the same time as it went on in the alternate reality, and Piper calmly comments "Oh there you are. We were wondering" or words to that effect. Paige had been gone over a day and Leo wouldn't have been able to sense her across dimensions. Weren't Phoebe or Piper the least bit worried about her?
Correction: At this time Paige is wanting space from the sisters so there was no reason for them or Leo to look for her. It was like that when Paige and Phoebe moved out - they did not see each other every day.
Corrected entry: After Cole tells Leo, Piper and Phoebe the source has surfaced, Piper asks Leo if he can "sense Paige". Leo replies, saying no, "she's too new". But aren't white lighters meant to help witches who are just coming into their powers, which is exactly what Paige is doing?
Correction: It is also stated through out the entire show in various episodes that if a white lighter hasn't formed a bond with his new charge they can't sense them. For example when Leo first came around the charmed ones it was to get to know them and form that bond. This also occurs with Paige's new charges.
Corrected entry: When the sisters visit the vampire queen to make a deal, Piper blows up several of the vampires in their bat form. But in season 4's "Bite Me," the book of shadows says vampires are immune to witches' powers.
Correction: The Book of Shadows states that vampires are immune to witches' powers while in vampire/human form but are able to be destroyed in their bat form, which happens in both season's 4 & season 7's episodes.
Corrected entry: When Piper answers the cordless phone in the kitchen, there is a closeup of the phone ringing on its base. The phone and base unit are both white, but when the camera angle changes to show Piper answering the phone, the handset she holds to her ear has now changed to black.
Correction: The phone and base are both black - the answering machine next to it is white.
Corrected entry: At the end of the previous season Chris's hair was very short. In this episode it's several inches long, but we know its only been 2 weeks since it's stated Leo's been missing for that long.
Correction: I was watching both episodes and looked back at them with this entry in mind. Chris' hair doesn't look that short at the end of season 5. It's just styled up (like spiked up), while at the beginning of season 6 it isn't styled much and just lies flat, which is why it looks different but it's just the styling.
Corrected entry: In the courtroom when Piper freezes only the innocents, she's not able to freeze the villains when the sisters are fighting with them because she says they're immune to her power. However, in future episodes, she's able to freeze Cole - even though he wasn't an innocent in the courtroom.
Correction: Piper chose to freeze the innocents. Cole is not innocent, hence he didn't freeze, he pretended to. Piper can target who she wants to freeze therefore Cole wasn't immune to her power, he just wasn't the target of her freeze.
Corrected entry: When Prue and Phoebe first enter the ice-cream van, we are told that their powers don't work in this dimension, but a few minutes later, Phoebe gets a premonition from the swingset - if their powers really didn't work, she wouldn't have been able to.
Correction: Prue's telekinesis does not work against the ice-cream man because hers is an active power; one that works outside the mind of the Witch who is using the power. Phoebe was able to get a premonition because her power was passive; it only works in her mind as she's the only one who actually sees her premonitions. Had Phoebe tried, she would not have been able to levitate whilst inside the ice-cream truck.
Corrected entry: In the beginning, Prue and Phoebe are in the alleyway and they kill The Guardian with a sharp object to The Guardian's rune. The bad guy, Emilio, is lying unconscious on the top of the dumpster. A few scenes later, Phoebe and Prue are discussing why they should or should not help Cole prosecute, and Prue says something along the lines of, "And Emilio saw us use our powers". Since Emilio was unconscious, he could not have seen them use their powers.
Correction: Prue actually used her power to throw him on top of the dumpster in the first place, so he did see her use it before he was knocked unconscious.
Corrected entry: In 2-16 "Murphy's Luck," Leo tells the sisters that the darklighter gets his victims to commit suicide because it's the only way to prevent a future whitelighter from becoming a whightlighter. But in future episodes with darklighters, he tells the sisters that if the darklight kills their target, it will prevent them from doing all the good they are destined to do as a whitelighter.
Correction: Maggie had already done all the good she was destined to, meaning if the Darklighter was to shoot her, she would still become a whitelighter because she had already earned her wing, as they say. It's believed that the only sin that cannot be repented is suicide, so it would be the only way to damn her.
Corrected entry: Piper convinced Paige that they should use their powers to make Andrew confess to murder. Paige wonders why it's okay to reveal their powers to a mortal, and Piper and Leo explain to her that it's all right to use their powers on a mortal because they're trying to help an innocent. But in episode 2-19: "Ex Libris," Prue wanted to use a truth spell to force the pawnshop owner to confess to murder, and Phoebe pointed out that it is an abuse of their powers to punish the guilty.
Correction: There's a difference between helping the innocent and punishing the guilty. Sometimes, helping an innocent will inadvertently also punish the guilty, but the main goal for them is to stop pain and suffering happening directly to an innocent.
Corrected entry: In "All Halliwell's Eve" the charmed ones go back to the past and don't have their powers because they wern't born yet. But when Cole and Prue go back to the Wild West, Prue keeps her powers even though she hadn't been born yet.
Correction: They don't actually go to the past. They go to an alternate realm/plane where the inhabitants are forced to relive the same time and events over and over because they keep making the same 'wrong' choices.
Corrected entry: When the Charmed Ones run up to the bedroom at the end of the episode, Prue can't find the poignard as she rummages through her black purse. Elliot, who has fallen from the bed, suddenly picks up the poignard from the ground, where it is sitting next to a black purse. The way the shot is set up, it looks as if the purse has fallen there, and the poignard fell out. But since Prue is still holding the purse that the poignard was supposed to be in, and she hadn't been to that room before, the poignard's presence on the floor is completely inexplicable.
Correction: The purse on the ground, despite being black, is very different from Prue's purse, it is most likely somebody else's. As for the knife, the three sisters are all shoved when the bridesmaids enter and Prue's purse falls from her. We don't see the knife falling out, but its reasonable to assume that it did so since it ended up a few feet away where Elliot was.
Corrected entry: The Seer tells Cole about the importance of the upcoming "Harvest Moon." But this episode aired in mid-March, while the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. The full moon closest to the vernal equinox is known as the Worm Moon.
Correction: Real time is not taken into account within the fiction of the show, so it doesn't matter what the actual date is when the episode aired.
Corrected entry: Approximately 10 minutes into the episode, the Haliwells are in the kitchen getting breakfast. While sitting at the table, Piper is heard to say "it's not, it's fine", but her lips don't move.
Correction: The shot is moving toward her while she is saying the line. It doesn't show her face.
Corrected entry: After the shapeshifter turned from a mailman into Andy, Prue told him about her father returning to town. Later, the real Andy came to the house, and then after a cut, he and Prue were talking about Prue's father, Victor. Andy has known Prue since high school, and therefore knows that Victor has been gone for twenty years. And since Prue only told the shapeshifter about Victor's return, the real Andy didn't know about it. So how could he and Prue have gotten onto the subject of Victor being in San Francisco, a fact that surely would have surprised the real Andy, without Prue figuring out that Andy wasn't the one she talked to earlier that day?
Correction: We only see the second half of this conversation. They could have gotten onto the topic a number of ways, without Andy questioning it.
