Charmed

Be Careful What You Witch For - S2-E22

Plot hole: When teenage Prue has run away with the demon, and Phoebe and Piper find her in the park, teenage Prue is 'killed'. Her sisters drive her home to get Leo to heal her, but shouldn't they have just been able to call to Leo to orb to them when Prue was first hurt, and heal her in the park, and save driving back to the Manor and risk Prue dying?

Suggested correction: I see orbing to the park but he didn't heal her, she was already dead and he can't heal the dead, that's why the genie brought her back - that's what Phoebe wished for.

Ordinary Witches - S7-E11

Plot hole: The innocent who gets Piper's powers uses them to freeze Piper and Phoebe. But even though Piper and Phoebe no longer have their unique powers, they are still good witches; they were still able to scry, and we have encountered good witches on the show in the past who had no powers at all. And by the rules of magic within the show, good witches do not freeze.

My Three Witches - S6-E6

Plot hole: When Gith takes the potion from Chris, he ends up stomping on it and shattering the potion bottle - making contact with the potion. We've seen that potions don't have to be thrown by someone who's even a witch for them to work (like when Cole's powers were stripped etc) so why on earth would he do this? And how did it not vanquish him? There are other ways he could have gotten rid of the potion that didn't involve a way that really should have vanquished him.

Season 5 generally

Plot hole: In episode 1-2 ("I've Got You Under My Skin"), Alec buys Phoebe a martini at Quake. but then in episode 5-11 ("The Importance of Being Phoebe"), Cole tells Kaya that Phoebe doesn't drink. Then, in episode 5-17 ("Lucky Charmed"), Jason buys Phoebe a "Martini, dirty" at the end.

Pardon My Past - S2-E14

Plot hole: According to the family tree viewed in this episode, Penny "Grams" Halliwell was born on 6/23/1937, and her daughter Patty, the Charmed Ones' mother, was born on 4/5/1950. In addition, Patty's father was born in 1930. So, according to this, Penny gave birth to her daughter at age 12, while married to a 20 year old man. That's quite outlandish, to say the least. (00:20:05)

Witchstock - S6-E11

Plot hole: In the opening scene, Chris directs Piper and Phoebe on how to vanquish the amorphous demon. He says that it will attack "fast and hard" as soon as it senses Phoebe's magic when she levitates. But Chris had orbed out of the warehouse and back in, and the demon didn't react to the magic. Later in the episode, it is specifically attracted to a use of orbing, several times.

Morality Bites - S2-E2

Plot hole: The return spell for travelling back through time is supposed to have been erased from the Book of Shadows in the future, however it is visible when Prue is turning the pages of the book and talking about the new spells. (00:24:20 - 00:27:10)

Chris-Crossed - S6-E10

Plot hole: It's shown with the spell that the Halliwells leave for Chris in the attic that if something happens in the past, the future will immediately reflect that change. Chris had changed so much in the past that there should have been at least one thing different that mildly surprised him, even if he was careful to not give too much information to the sisters about the future.

Witchstock - S6-E11

Plot hole: This episode takes place in 1967, and Penny (Grams) is married to a man named Allen Halliwell who dies in the episode. Allen is supposed to be Penny's "first husband," Patty's father and the Charmed Ones' grandfather. But it was previously established that Patty's father was named Jack, and he died in 1964. Also they hint that Patty is still little but we know she was born in 1950 so she would be 17.

Hyde School Reunion - S6-E17

Plot hole: Rick is menacing Phoebe with a gun near the end of the episode. Why doesn't Paige orb the gun away from him? In fact, why did Phoebe make Piper stay upstairs? Piper could have frozen Rick, and Paige could have orbed him back to the prison. There were several obvious ways to resolve this situation that would not have caused Rick's death.

A Knight to Remember - S4-E6

Plot hole: Piper is initially skeptical at Phoebe's theory that the Evil Enchantress could be Paige in a past life, because Paige lacks the Enchantress' ability to summon the elements. However, Piper knows that in Phoebe's past life she had a pyrokinetic power, which she does not have in the present.

Suggested correction: This is not a correction, more of an observation that goes with this plot hole. In season 2 episode 14 'Pardon my past' Leo explains to the sisters that Phoebe was taken away her active powers, because her past self had used them for evil, but yet the Enchantress does the same with her powers, and Paige still has active powers. It took two years for Phoebe fighting as a good witch to actually gain an active power again, and then it was only levitating. Becoming an empath took seven years. So that doesn't really make sense that Phoebe would be punished for her past self actions and Paige was not.

Possibly Paige had past lives in between the one we saw and the present one. So she could have already atoned for the evil past life in another past life.

That could very well be true since Paige's past life as the Enchantress was much further back in the past than Phoebe's.

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Plot hole: When Piper freezes an object it always continues with its path when it unfreezes, but when she unfreezes the knife Rick has thrown at her it drops to the floor. (00:36:20)

A Knight to Remember - S4-E6

Plot hole: According to Paige's "fairy tale" the witch ends up with the prince. If this is really a past life, the sorceress ended up with the prince in the Middle Ages. So why do they have to fix it? Everything was just going the way it did according to her fairy tale, and good magic was obviously still present in the world.

The Fifth Halliwell - S4-E16

Plot hole: Cole explains that the demonic power is driving Karen mad because she is human. Cole later has Paige infected with one to drive her mad. This doesn't make sense since Paige is doubly not human, and shouldn't be driven mad. In fact the Charmed Ones have had demonic powers before and were not driven mad, but instead turned evil.

There's Something About Leo - S7-E9

Plot hole: Kyle holds Phoebe at gunpoint during the entire climax. Piper could have completely defused the situation by simply using her freezing power on Kyle. Instead, she stands helplessly by.

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Plot hole: When Rick and Nathan held Leo down so he couldn't get to his charge, why didn't he orb to her side to save her?

Freaky Phoebe - S7-E19

Plot hole: When Paige and Leo are talking in Leo's office at magic school, Paige compliments Leo for being such a good headmaster. She mentions that after being headmistress for a year, it's harder than it looks. If she became headmistress after they killed Gideon (i.e. when baby Chris is born) and she's been headmistress for a year, that would make Chris at least a year old. Chris is obviously not one year old just yet.

Suggested correction: Seeing as she is working at a school, she probably meant a school year, which only lasts for 10 months and not a whole year. She took over for Gideon after he died, so the school year had already started. And she also argued with the Elders first on even keeping the school open, so the school year was already partly over before she actually became headmistress. So like I stated previously, she probably meant a school year instead of an actual full year.

Feats of Clay - S1-E11

Plot hole: Phoebe's ex-boyfriend Clay shouldn't have known Prue worked at the auction house. Phoebe says she hadn't talked to him since she left New York, and when she arrived in San Francisco, Prue was still working at the history museum.

Cubs Fan

A Knight to Remember - S4-E6

Plot hole: When Phoebe tried to kick the Shocker Demon, she became electrocuted until Piper interposed with a large wooden stand. But when the prince attacked the Shocker Demon with his metallic sword, the demon was cowed and the prince was unharmed.

All Halliwell's Eve - S3-E4

Plot hole: When Phoebe and Cole are using the apple peel to find out her true love how does she not recognize that it is Cole? Even with the mask it's very clear that it is him.

Be Careful What You Witch For - S2-E22

Plot hole: When teenage Prue has run away with the demon, and Phoebe and Piper find her in the park, teenage Prue is 'killed'. Her sisters drive her home to get Leo to heal her, but shouldn't they have just been able to call to Leo to orb to them when Prue was first hurt, and heal her in the park, and save driving back to the Manor and risk Prue dying?

Suggested correction: I see orbing to the park but he didn't heal her, she was already dead and he can't heal the dead, that's why the genie brought her back - that's what Phoebe wished for.
