Continuity mistake: Episode 8x17, "Generation Hex": When Phoebe and Cupid visit the memory of Phoebe revealing she is a witch to Dex, past-Phoebe has her hands down by her sides, but then her left hand suddenly jumps to her purse strap. Not only that, but in the original episode ("Rewitched"), Phoebe's hand remained on her purse strap the entire time.
Continuity mistake: After the Grimlock kidnaps the child getting the ball, Prue goes after it. But the demon opens a hole in the earth and jumps through it and it closes. Prue then reaches the spot where the Grimlock disappeared and she is surrounded by dead leaves and trees. Then it goes to another shot of Prue turning around. Suddenly the trees and dead leaves are gone and she is standing in an open area with green grass and no trees.
Continuity mistake: In 3-5 Sight Unseen, we can clearly see Cole turn the air conditioning very cold and open all the windows so that the Prue, Piper and Phoebe can see the invisible demon, and in season 2 when Prue is turned into a man Phoebe asks "did you fix the air conditioning?" But in this episode Phoebe asks Piper why they have never invested in air conditioning.
Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Piper tried out for a job as a chef at a restaurant called "L'Opera Ristorante" and was hired by Chef Moore. Then in this episode, she works at a bar and restaurant called "Quake," but she talks about Chef Moore quitting and leaving her in charge of the establishment, so it's not meant to be a different place.
Continuity mistake: When Paige follows Phoebe into the kitchen and is trying to convince her that she is telling the truth, Phoebe's right earring is missing in the shots showing both women, but it is there when the shot changes to close ups of Phoebe. It is an awfully large earring to be hidden by her hair in the two-shot.
Continuity mistake: You'll notice in some episodes (like "Coyote Piper") that when the sisters look out of the attic window, they can see Prescott Street below, indicating that the attic window is on the front of the house. But if you look at the size and shape of this window, you'll see that there is no window like this on the outside front of the house. In addition, in "Sin Francisco," Phoebe looks out the attic window and sees the front porch from a side view. There's no structure on that side of the house to begin with.
Continuity mistake: After Phoebe jump kicks a warlock and falls to the ground, there is a blonde woman standing next to them. In the next shot of the warlock, when Piper blows him up, the woman is gone. But all of the mortals had been frozen, so she couldn't have moved.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode the newspaper Prue is holding keeps changing from facing the camera to facing her. And as she turns to the house she drops her hand (and the newspaper) to her side but in the next shot she is holding it to her chest again.
Continuity mistake: When Piper and Leo confront the genie at the restaurant, the genie is eating food as fast as he can. At one point he gets a line of pasta sauce on his cheek. The shot changes, then goes right back to him only now the sauce is gone with no time for him to have wiped it off, especially since his hands are full of food.
Continuity mistake: When Piper is talking to Cole, they show the other Piper on the couch. Whenever you see Piper talking, you can see that the other Piper's legs change position throughout the shot. They go from being straight to both legs bent to one leg bent to straight.
Continuity mistake: In the teaser, the demon attacks Dr. Mitchell, killing him and also destroying his irises. His eyes turn white, and later dialogue confirms that the irises were gone from his eyes. However, when the Charmed Ones find his corpse, his eyes are open and his irises are visible.
Continuity mistake: The timeline in the episode is inconsistent. Right after the first courtroom scene, we see the three sisters at home, and Phoebe says that "Cole was an angel in that courtroom yesterday." Later, Cole says that he regrets the criminal being let go, "today." But they are talking about the same events.
Continuity mistake: Paige looks in the Book of Shadows and suggests that the demon they are looking for could be Belthazor, not knowing that Belthazor is Cole's demonic form. But we saw Phoebe making extensive changes to Belthazor's entry in the Book of Shadows in a previous episode, and the changes are not in evidence here.
Continuity mistake: The Stillman sisters strip the Charmed Ones' powers by using the same spell as Aunt Gail did in Season 2 (How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans). But in that episode the Charmed Ones had to first drink a potion and Aunt Gail needed to wait a certain amount of time (at least 30 minutes) before the spell worked. In the Power of Three Blondes, the Charmed Ones never drank a potion and lost their powers before the Stillman sisters even finished the spell.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, Leo tells Phoebe that white lighters are sent to their charges by "a group of elder white lighters known as the founders." However, by later seasons in the series, the word "founders" was never used. The leaders of the white lighters were simply known as the "elders."
Continuity mistake: Paige's spell causes Darryl to acquire invulnerability and uncontrollable super strength. When he opens the door of the squad car, he accidentally rips it completely off. When he tries to put the suspect into the back seat, the man flies through the car and barrels out the other side, taking the other door with him. But immediately before this, Darryl high-fives several of his fellow officers, and they are unharmed. They should have been thrown off their feet and suffered multiple fractures in their hands.
Continuity mistake: In 'Morality Bites', Phoebe has her premonition about being executed while watching a news report on a baseball player, right after she and the others punish Pratt. When she returns in time at the end of the episode, they all watch the news report first and only afterwards look out the window and see Pratt.

Continuity mistake: In the episode "A Witch in Time," when Phoebe and Piper are going to Miles' work to get him for the first time, Phoebe runs up the steps to his work and she is wearing leather boots with a skinny heel. Then, when she and Piper are running to where the police shoot-out is, Phoebe is wearing tan Ugs. Then, when they get there and Piper freezes the scene and Phoebe is getting the bullets out of the air, she is wearing the leather boots again.
Continuity mistake: When Prue describes the way the warlock Matthew traveled instantaneously, Melinda tells the sisters that it's called blinking, and that Matthew "must have copied it from another witch." But later in the series, every warlock encountered by the Charmed Ones had the ability to blink, and it was considered exclusively a warlock ability, meaning that no witch would have had it.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode we see a man standing in the rain in front of the sisters house. After he starts walking away, they show a completely bare tree in front of the house. The next morning when Piper is driving away, they show the same tree with leaves and flowers on it. Trees do not grow that fast.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Paige goes to the citrus plant during the labor rally, her pink blouse is quite short, baring her entire midriff. When the security guard throws Paige out of the plant, Rose McGowan's stunt double is wearing a shirt in the same pink color, but it reaches all the way down to her waistline.
Continuity mistake: When Paige is telling the others she thinks Lydia is the one Cree was after, she says 'I think Lydia was the one who summoned that dust storm', but none of the sisters were present when the dust storm was summoned. They only arrived afterwards.
Continuity mistake: After Phoebe has her premonition about Paige at Prue's funeral, demonic bounty hunters show up to "eliminate" Belthazor. We see the funeral hall empty where seconds before Phoebe's premonition, there was a line of people waiting to give their condolences to the girls, Victor, Leo and Cole.
00:12:20 - 00:13:10
Continuity mistake: When Prue talks to Piper after stopping her phone conversation, she tells her that "the Sin Balls work a lot faster than [they] thought. Once infected, the victim only has a few hours before it drives them to total self-destruction." However, this is almost verbatim what was written in the Book of Shadows. It could be easily read by the viewing audience when the book entry was shown. So all three sisters should already know this.
Continuity mistake: The name plate under the photo of Leo at the Veterans Association indicates that he died on November 24, 1942. Paige's research indicates that Nathan and Rick both died on the same day as Leo, but she later finds out that they were buried at the V.A. on November 22, 1942, two days before they are supposed to have died.
Continuity mistake: In the teaser, Phoebe took off her messenger bag while she was sitting in the chair talking to Prue, and she left it there when she went up to get the door. For the rest of the scene at the house, including when Phoebe and Prue ran out of the door, Phoebe was not wearing the bag. Then, when we saw them outside immediately thereafter, Phoebe was wearing the bag again.
Continuity mistake: Robin falls over backwards after Paige dumps a cannister of marbles onto the floor. But Robin wasn't moving at all when this happened. Trying to walk over marbles will make you fall. Standing still while marbles roll around and bounce off your feet? Not so much.
Continuity mistake: Just after Olivia has killed Mr. Montana and everyone goes running up to see what has happened, Phoebe waves to Paige through the window of the Calloway's house which is shown to be right next door to the Montana's house. Earlier in the episode it had been established that they lived across the street.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode it is not Alyssa riding the horse to the café. Alyssa has a tattoo on her right ankle, which when we see when camera pans up the right leg the person riding the horse has no tattoo on the right foot, but when Alyssa rides away you can see the tattoo she has going round her right ankle.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Phoebe dangles the slumlord from the roof, the TransAmerica Pyramid can be seen behind Phoebe and Cole. A subsequent shot, after Phoebe tosses the slumlord back onto the roof, is take from the opposite side, but the TransAmerica Pyramid is still behind them, and is much closer.
Continuity mistake: Paige asks how The Source was previously vanquished, but she was there both times: when the original Source was vanquished, and again when they vanquished Cole. Also Phoebe wasn't actually there for the final vanquish of Cole, but was taken back by Cupid as if it was her memory.

Continuity mistake: After Phoebe kisses Billy, she sees that the makeup over his lips has washed off and that they're in black and white again. While she applies more to him, the phone rings, Billy turns his head, and his lips are normal. In the next shot, they're back to being in black and white.
Continuity mistake: In the episode "Something Wicca This Way Goes," Phoebe's shoes change between shots. Near the end, while fighting Zankou in the basement, he hurls the sisters to the ground and Phoebe is shown wearing sandals. When she stands up, she is now wearing sneakers.
Continuity mistake: In episode 7-7: "Someone To Witch Over Me," Piper is killed by the demon Sarpedon's metallic claw. When the claw strikes her, she falls back with her arms behind her, landing partially on her palms, allowing her to complete the fall by sinking gradually to the ground. Then there is a cut to a closer shot, and we see her fall again. The second time, she falls directly into a more prone position with her arms raised and the backs of both hands facing the ground.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is walking the Dwarf to the door after finding out Piper pulled the sword from the stone, he steps outside and goes into fast-forward, then stops and goes back to normal speed as he sniffs a flower. During this, in the background, you can see Phoebe, who freezes the whole time.
Continuity mistake: When the spider demon cocoons Piper, Paige throws a blue potion (the vanquishing potion) at her, Chris catches it and jumps over the couch, knocks Paige to the floor and Phoebe kicks Chris. The potion falls out of Chris hand and rolls into Paige's open hand, it has now turned yellow (the antidote) Paige grabs it as she stands and throws it at the spider demon again and it has now turned back into the blue potion.

Continuity mistake: Midway through the episode, the Seer is looking through the sisters' photo album. Several of the photos actually include everyone who was present for the events depicted, leaving nobody to take the photo. And since the events were shown in various episodes, we know that no photo was taken at those times by any automated method.
Continuity mistake: When Chris orbs to the manor after Paige has returned home, his hair is brushed to lay mostly flat and behind his head, with a part on the left side of his scalp. When he comes into the kitchen shortly thereafter, his hair is shaggy and unkempt, with a part in the middle.
Continuity mistake: When Gideon warns Sara not to use magic to put the books in the library back on the shelves, her arms are at her sides. A second later, the shot changes to over her shoulder as Leo orbs in and she has a nearly full armload of books.
Continuity mistake: On 2/17/1999, Phoebe realizes that her past self, P. Russell, died on that same date in 1924, and was the same age as Phoebe is now. According to the family tree she is looking at, P. Russell was born on 7/2/1894, meaning that she was 29 upon her death. But Phoebe was born on 11/2/1975, according to that same family tree, making her only 23 at the time of this episode.
Continuity mistake: When Piper, Paige and Phoebe are having a food fight, Piper freezes the cake, then she throws it at Paige who suddenly has a mysterious stain on her top. Then Piper has orange food on her hands even though she hasn't touched anything orange, and the stain on Paige's top has gone.
Continuity mistake: When the Charmed Ones decide to try to vanquish Cole, Paige says that the newest potions they mixed should work, since they're "at least as strong as the ones [they] used on the Source." But they never used any potions that had an effect on the Source.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, Chris thinks back to when he went back to the past. When he and Bianca are on the tour of the manor, there are some costumes that have been worn by the charmed ones. But in the episode "Oh My Goddess (1)" Chris tells Phoebe that Paige died on that day, so how could she have worn something after she died? And if she did die that day, Chris would have never met her, since he was not yet born, and could not have learned to orb from her, as he says in "Spin City." However there are other inconsistencies with that story that Chris mentions later, seeming to suggest he lied about this to get the sisters onside. It may not be a continuity error but as it was never fully addressed in the show just what Chris was lying about (and he obviously told some) we cannot be sure.
Continuity mistake: Prue finds Brendan, as a warlock, over the corpse of Father Austin. He runs away and she pursues him. He insists that he "didn't hurt Father Austin. [He] found him like that." Prue counters, "Before or after you turned into a warlock?" His response is, "After. When I saw what [my brothers] did to him, I was crazed. The rage turned me into a warlock." So doesn't that mean that he found Father Austin before he turned into a warlock, not after?
Continuity mistake: In the second to last scene where Piper tests her powers on the lamp and Phoebe is cleaning, you can see Piper's bra strap when she blows up the lamp but when she turns to face Phoebe its covered. Through out the scene it's covered and exposed without her ever adjusting her shirt.
Continuity mistake: Leo orbed from the Manor to Hell while it was full daylight. He orbed Jessica straight to the church, there was a brief scene, and then Leo and Paige orbed directly back to the Manor, but by the time they arrived it was completely dark.
00:31:45 - 00:33:45DavidK93
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, in the scene at P3, Phoebe launched a jump kick at a warlock after Paige has been knocked down by a small energy ball. Everybody else in the club was frozen by Piper, but when Phoebe lands she jostles a blonde extra who moves from her pose.
Continuity mistake: Paige's headstone reports her year of birth as 1975. But in episode 4-2: "Charmed Again, Part Two," Paige spoke with the nun to whom she was given as an infant on August 2, 1977, and Paige is always described as having been "given up at birth" by Patty and Sam.
Continuity mistake: In the scene when Piper is fighting off demons by herself at the start of the episode and Phoebe and Paige come to help her, she narrowly misses a fireball and jumps down to the ground to dodge it. In the shot before, her forehead is un-injured, but as she dives to the ground you see that she is already bleeding from her forehead, *before* she actually hurts it.
Continuity mistake: When the girls are saying goodbye to their father, Phoebe hugs him around the neck, then lowers her arms while they talk. When her father says "About anything," her left arm jumps back up to being around his neck, and in the next shot, it's down at the side again.
Continuity mistake: Right after Grams says "I Love You" to the sisters at the end, we see a close-up of Phoebe. In this shot, you can see the tear in Prue's shirt, but immediately afterwards, there is a shot of Prue where it appears to be sewn or something.
00:41:55 - 00:43:00
Continuity mistake: In the teaser, Phoebe has a vision of a murder. When she first sees the shadow of the attack, the assailant is holding his victim down with his right hand while stabbing with his left. Then when the vision focuses on the Medusa head tattoo on his forearm, it is the right arm that is stabbing.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Prue look in the Book of Shadows for the spell to summon Belthazor, it is written with the same artistic calligraphy as the rest of the Book. But this spell was written by the sisters themselves in episode 3-8: "Sleuthing With The Enemy." As a result, it should have a handwritten appearance similar to the pages Phoebe was working on at the beginning of this episode.
Continuity mistake: After the "dirtbag" is brought back to the manor and Piper is ragging on him, Piper gets very angry and decides to blow her husband up. Less than a minute later, Cole says "Back away slowly, Leo." Leo says "What?" and Cole says "She's becoming a fury." Then it shows Pipers hands, which now have long black fingernails, but they just suddenly show themselves right when Cole decides to show up and say she's becoming a Fury. When she blew Leo into orbs there were no long black nails.
Continuity mistake: In this episode one of the shape shifting demons from across the street attempted to take the book of shadows out of the house. He managed to carry the book to the door, but could not take it past the threshold of the house. But in the later series it is always stated that evil cannot touch the book of shadows.
Continuity mistake: During the opening, Piper, Phoebe and Cole are in an SUV and going to find a demon. A shot from in front shows that there is no rearview mirror in the SUV, just a white mark on the windshield. When they turn into the parking lot however, the rearview mirror has returned.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cole has caught Phoebe's karate kick at school, Phoebe's hands are both clutching her school books. In the following shot, her left arm is in a completely different position, and there's no reason for her to have moved it.
Continuity mistake: When Brendon is about to sacrifice the young woman he has the tip of the dagger touching her chest in one shot and in the next shot, when Prue breaks open the door, it is about six inches above her. Also, when the victim is talking to Andy she says that she felt the tip of the knife, that he was about to drive it into her, but he was stopped by three woman.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode they show Piper running up the stairs to her house in the rain. The umbrella she has is black, with a colored ring around the edge. When she enters the house the whole umbrella has changed to colors surrounding the whole umbrella now.

Continuity mistake: When Prue leaves Buckland's, she's wearing a red tank top, but when she arrives at Camp Skylark, her shirt is different, both in style and color. She can't have stopped to change, because it's mentioned she left the auction house and headed directly to the camp.

Continuity mistake: In the teaser Piper is reading a fairytale book to her unborn child. When Paige walks in we get a glimpse of the book, and both pages are filled with words. When Paige walks out and we see the book again, the right page of the book has a picture on it.
00:00:15 - 00:01:35
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eva is teaching the sisters about ways to draw power on All Hallows Eve, she cuts an apple in half and puts a leaf over the seeds in the center. The leaf goes from small and only covering the center to bigger and covering more of the apple.
Continuity mistake: During the meeting with Phoebe's boss (regarding her newspaper column), when Phoebe's hearing is "stolen", the white handbag flips over (top faces Phoebe, then bottom) and upside-down (note flap/clasp) on the desk between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Paige is trying to convince Piper and Phoebe that she needs to save Larry's soul, she has the Book of Shadows open to the page on vampires. In subsequent shots, the open page changes to two different demons; but Paige's hands are down by her sides the entire time, so she couldn't have flipped the pages over.
Continuity mistake: When Piper and Jeremy are in the elevator, he pulls a knife on her she freezes him. When the camera shows him from her p.o.v he has this really "snarling" looking face with his mouth open. But when the camera changes the shot from looking at them from outside the elevator, his face is completely different and his mouth is almost closed.
Continuity mistake: Piper and Leo both make comments about Leo's inability to self-heal now that he's a mortal. But in previous episodes, it's mentioned that Leo wasn't allowed to use his powers to heal himself.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode Piper is talking to her sisters in the parlor with her watch is on her left wrist and a bracelet on her right wrist. She goes upstairs to her room to cry and her bracelet and watch have switched places.

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe first meets and talks to Nathan in the hospital, she has no ring on her right hand in shots showing her face, but in any shots from behind her she has a ring on. The ring appears and disappears between transitions during their conversation.
Continuity mistake: Right after the Hawker demon attacks, Piper picks the baby up and the head of the doll is covered and you can't see the face; a quick change in camera angles shows the baby's face and the blankets are all arranged and folded to frame the baby and no time has elapsed to allow this to happen. Also, the doll used as the baby double is much smaller than the baby and is very noticeable in shots that switch back and forth between the covered doll and real baby.
Continuity mistake: In the scene with Paige and Jordan Bridges' character, nearer the end, when they are sitting on the couch and his possessed character leans in for a kiss, from the back shot, he leans in and his head is tilting towards his right shoulder (you see part of his profile and the back of his head and Paige's face); when they change the shot so you see the front of his face and the back of Paige's head, his head is tilted back towards his left shoulder.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning and throughout most of the episode you can see the entrance to the basement. If you look to the right of the door you can see a light switch by the door with the cover on it. At the end of the episode they show the entrance but this time the cover to the light switch is off.

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe comes out of her vision quest the third time, the shaman holds out the potion cup by the handle, but in the next shot, she's holding it by the bowl. The cup also appears to jump from her right hand to her left.
Continuity mistake: When Black Jack Cutting's parrot delivers the invitation to Piper and Phoebe, it drops the invitation on the window sill. When Leo goes to pick the letter up, it moves closer to him than it was before (in particular, watch it relative to the parrot's left foot).
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene in the club with the DJ playing, they have an overhead shot of the club. In the lower right hand corner we see Paige and Dave talking with Leo and Piper, but after the scene cuts out Piper is just walking in. This can't be since we already saw them talking.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Paige and Piper are doing first aid on each other, Piper makes quite a production out of the business of peeling the backs off band aids to apply to Paige's arm - but when she slaps it on Paige's arm, it's a non-adhesive white 4 x 4, which Paige has to hold on her arm with her other hand.
Continuity mistake: The only way any of the charmed ones can see the fairies is with the fairy dust, but in several other later seasons and episodes when the charmed ones need the magical community's help they can see the fairies without any help from fairy dust or a spell.
Continuity mistake: Kit the cat shows up in Something Wicca this Way Comes (Episode 1,1), as the girls' familiar once they have received their powers. It is obvious that the cat just showed up by comments made by the girls, along the lines of "where did this cat come from" (not literally). However, in Pre-Witched (Episode 3,17), they make the same kinds of comments about Kit just showing up in this episode, which is suppose to have happened 6 months before Episode 1,1.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is looking in the Book of Shadows for information about Eames, she comes across the Belthazor page, and lays the page down flat. In the following shots, the page moves to her hand, then lying down flat, then to her hand again.
Continuity mistake: When Paige complains about the ringing in her ear, she's rubbing her temple with her right hand and holding a coffee mug with her left. In the next shot, which is cut too fast for her to have moved, the hand on her temple has jumped to holding the coffee mug. The mug has also jumped to in front of her mouth.
