Charmed

Charmed Again (1) - S4-E1

New this month Plot hole: Phoebe says Piper and Prue were able to defeat Shax without the power of three and Piper's response is it was because "Prue was the strongest." Piper would have no recollection of this event as Tempus reversed time bringing Piper back from the dead in the timeline that she was shot in. The time reversal affected everyone's memory except Phoebe, Leo and Cole who were in the Underworld.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Plot hole: Piper mentions that Grams banished the Necromancer "sixty years ago" at Patty's Wiccanning. Grams soon thereafter says that the Necromancer has had "almost seventy years" to regain his strength. However, Patty was born in 1950, and this episode aired on 5/4/03, at which time Patty's Wiccanning could not have been more than 53 years earlier.

Witchstock - S6-E11

Plot hole: When Piper and Phoebe appear in the past, Penny chides them not to "use [their] magic so openly." Immediately thereafter, Penny uses magic to turn some police officer's night sticks into flowers. That was some pretty open use of magic, right there.

Suggested correction: Well, I can't remember Penny's exact wording, but even so, if someone saw Piper and Phoebe materialize out of nowhere they would've been exposed. Penny turning the nightsticks into flowers was much less obvious, because the cops would've had no way of knowing how it happened or who was responsible for doing it.

A Witch's Tail (1) - S5-E1

Plot hole: The Sea Hag says at the start of the episode to Mylie that as an immortal being, only she can place the augur shell over her heart to give up her life. But at the end of the episode Necron magically places the shell onto Phoebe and it nearly sucks the life out of her.

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.

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.

Charmed Again (2) - S4-E2

Piper says "how does a white-lighter get somebody knocked up?", but when she went to the future she saw herself with Leo's baby, and Leo told her that he hadn't clipped his wings.

Sympathy for the Demon - S5-E7

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Plot hole: In 'Centennial Charmed' Paige orbs to another reality where she loses all her powers. Leo tells her the this is because she was never called as a witch in this world, but Paige had most of her powers before she was called because of her whitelighter blood, so she should retain these. Leo says that Paige has assumed the life of this reality's Paige, but then adds "...or at least the life she would have lived if she hadn't been killed". If alternate Paige had lived she would have had Whitelighter powers, even if she didn't know about them, so our Paige should also have them.

Season 6 generally

Plot hole: Why doesn't Chris ever use his powers against demons? We know he can use them in this time, since he blows up Leo in "Oh My Goddess" and kills a Valkyrie in "Valhalley of the Dolls", and after "Chris-Crossed", when it was discovered he was half-witch he had no reason to hide them from the sisters, yet he never once used them against a demon, even when one of the Charmed ones is in mortal danger.

Suggested correction: Actually Chris couldn't use his powers up until the "Chris-Crossed" episode because before this episode the sisters couldn't find out that he was part witch because then his cover as just their whitelighter would have been blown. Basically he had to keep his powers a secret until the "Chris-Crossed" episode.

Cat House - S5-E18

Plot hole: When Phoebe and Paige are be sent through Piper and Leo's past we see things that that cannot be true.1. When Leo was dying in "Love Hurts" you see Piper and Leo orbing, but in the actual episode they walked down the stairs.2. In "Just Harried" we see the cake fall and the Statue skid on the floor, but in the actual episode it was caught under the cake.

Cheaper by the Coven - S7-E3

Plot hole: When Grams is summoned for Chris's wiccaning, she reminds Piper of "the talk" they had when she was a teenager, about how important and special being a witch was to Grams and how it would be to the girls someday. But in the first episode, the girls have no inkling they are witches, and when they find out it's passed through the maternal line, they wonder if Patty or Grams was a watch-suggesting that they aren't sure or have no memories of them as witches. I know there was some memory altering at certain points, but why would Grams have a conversation specifically about how great it is to be a witch and then erase that?

The Importance of Being Phoebe - S5-E11

Plot hole: Close to the end of the episode, when Phoebe is going into the house pretending to be Kaia pretending to be Phoebe, Paige and Piper tell Phoebe that the demon twirls her hair, a lot. Cole also brought this to our attention much earlier in the episode. Phoebe says she's got it, and goes into the house. Paige had indicated that the problem with getting into the house was that there's a "whole load of demons" and a force field. Phoebe was to impersonate Kaia in order to get past all of these defenses. But through out the whole time she's in the house, Phoebe never twirls her hair.

Black as Cole - S4-E8

Plot hole: After Cole explains he might not be able to regain control after embracing his demonic half, he tells Phoebe she should have the Belthazor vanquish potion ready just in case. But in "Look Who's Barking", Piper tried using that potion on Cole and it didn't work because he had himself magically protected from it.

Witchstock - S6-E11

Plot hole: After Paige changes the past, the ghost of Grams changes from a no-nonsense demon-hunter into a pacifist hippie. So, apparently, we are now in an alternate timeline where Grams never became assertive, and stayed a hippie all her life. The episode went to great lengths to establish that if Grams had stayed a hippie, she and the Charmed Ones would have all died young. But the ghost of Grams was still middle-aged, instead of decades younger, and Wyatt and Chris were still there, but they wouldn't have been if their mother Piper had died as a child.

Plot hole: When Prue first releases Matthew, he blinks several times, then blows out the windows and jumps out. Why would he do this and reveal who and what he is when he could have simply blinked?

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Plot hole: Throughout the series, it's established that good witches don't freeze. In this episode, however, Little Piper freezes Future Prue and Piper when they come back to the manor to "kidnap" their younger selves. Simply because the Charmed Ones reason that only one "set" of sisters (past/future) could have their powers doesn't mean that Future Prue, Piper and Phoebe aren't good witches. In other time-travel episodes, the sisters remain immune to freezing and are still able to say spells make potions, meaning they are still good witches. For example, in Season 8 "Forever Charmed," Piper and Leo go back to 1975 (the same time-period as this episode) using Coop's ring, trying to find when Phoebe is alive again. However, when a startled Patty tries to freeze them, only Leo freezes. Piper does not, though she likely cannot use her freezing/exploding power in this time.

Plot hole: When Leo tells Piper that he believes he found the demon Sargon in the Book of Shadows (which may be the demon Count Roget made a faustian deal with), Piper looks at it and says that they vanquished this demon five years ago. Which would've meant they vanquished the demon with Prue. When in fact the only demon that happened with was Zahn in season 6 episode 6, "Soul Survivor," and they did that with Paige.

The Power of Two - S1-E20

Plot hole: When Andy, Phoebe and Prue are in the attic figuring out how to vanquish the ghost of Alcatraz, pages starts flipping, the book opens up to the page where the truth spell is, and Andy finds out that Prue cast that spell on him. Later when he asks how much time Prue gave him to react, she says "a minute or two". But in the episode "Truth is out there" (1-8) it was first in Prue's office when she told him, and the clock on the wall shows that it's 25 past 5. And it was 8 o'clock when Prue cast that spell. So few hours later when Andy and Prue are at Andy's door, it's almost 8 o'clock and Prue says she needs the answer now. So doesn't Andy have more like few hours rather than few minutes to react?
