Question: Christy and Billie Jenkins are very powerful witches, yet it's been established that their parents are ordinary mortals. So, where did they get their powers from?

Jane'sBitch

Chosen answer: In the episode Mr and Mrs. Witch, Billy's mom explains that their grandmother was a powerful witch and that it just skipped a generation.

Maria Santos

Show generally

Question: In the opening credits, Holly Combs is credited with "and Holly Marie Combs as 'Piper'". Why was she credited with her character's name, when none of the other three lead actresses were?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Her agent/manager negotiated a special billing as part of her contract. It distinguishes her from the rest of the cast, probably when she became a producer on the show.

Question: In the first few seasons, the Charmed Ones can retrieve a spell from the Book Of Shadows by just hovering their hands over the book & the book will turn to the correct page. However, in later seasons they have to turn pages manually. Why?

Chosen answer: They weren't searching the book. They were "concentrating" and their ancestors (Grams specifically) were helping them search. Later, they begin to know what to look for.

Used Karma - S6-E13

Question: I don't understand how Phoebe can turn the fireballs the swarm demons threw back on them. She doesn't have an active power like telekinesis which can be used like this. Could someone explain it to me?

Chosen answer: She uses her ability as an empath to tap into the demons power and use it against them. She did this for the first time in Valhalley of the Dolls to make Piper feel the loss of Leo.

Season 6 generally

Question: How does Chris still have his powers when he travels to the past, but the witches did not when they went to the past?

Chosen answer: With Chris being from the future (and being half-witch, half-whitelighter), he must know about the fact that his aunts can't use their powers in the past. Therefore, he would think to write an advanced spell so that his powers can be used.

THGhost

Answer: It was a different spell, you can see that from episode Chris-crossed, the charmed ones did not drew anything when travelled to their past. It's also explained from the conversation from Phoenix and Chris.

All Hell Breaks Loose - S3-E22

Question: Later in Charmed they bring the so called "cleaners" in episode 6-2 when Wyatt conjures a dragon and magic is exposed. Why didn't the cleaners appear earlier in this episode when Piper and Prue exposed magic?

Nenita2015

Answer: That was a mistake in the series.

Chosen answer: When the cleaners first surface in season 6 it is mentioned that usually the girls have been able to clean up their own messes (as seen in season 3 episode 22 when Phoebe turns back time thus concluding in the death of Prue).

Show generally

Question: Why can't Paige heal people? I've only ever seen her heal about one person. Is there any particular reason for this?

Chosen answer: Chris explains in the episode "Valhalley of the Dolls" that healing is extremely difficult, and can only be done by accomplished Whitelighters. Paige has only had her powers for a few years and is only half-Whitelighter, so at first, she can only heal people when Leo helps her. In Season 8, when she realizes she loves Henry, she unlocks the trigger to Healing (as explained by Leo at the end of season 1), and is able to heal others like a regular Whitelighter from then on.

Season 7 generally

Question: It's been shown that Zankou has the ability to steal powers through touch utilizing Power Absorption. Yet, why did he need a potion to steal The Charmed Ones' powers?

LazyBoy09

Chosen answer: Zankou can only steal the powers of demons - he cannot steal the powers of good witches because he is evil. He would need a power stripping potion to do that. Now that he has control over the book of shadows he is now able to make the power stripping potion.

Stephen Edmonds 1

Answer: Zankou needs to kill the demon or witch to steal their powers.

Show generally

Question: If "Whitelighters" are "technically" dead how is it Leo can do everything human? Eat, drink, feel, love, oh and father children. As well as when "Grams" and Patty came back they often came in human form at least some of the time?

Chosen answer: They are given a new physical body that has the "triple helix" DNA like witches.

Myridon

Show generally

Question: In the theme song, are the lyrics "I am the son/and the heir" or "I am the sun and the air" Because they both seem to fit.

Chosen answer: The theme song is "How Soon is Now", originally by the Smiths, but performed for the show by Love Spit Love. Same lyrics either way: "I am the son, I am the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar. I am the son and heir of nothing in particular."

Deja Vu All Over Again - S1-E22

Question: What is the song called that is played at the end, and who sings it?

Chosen answer: You're probably talking about 'Calling All Angels' by Jane Siberry. It's available on her album 'Whe I Was a Boy.'

Charmed Again (1) - S4-E1

Question: At the wake, Phoebe interrupts two people talking, and she says in passing, "Excuse me, Aaron." Is this Aaron Spelling in a cameo? Does he make others throughout the series?

Chosen answer: Yes, this is Aaron Spelling.

Show generally

Question: When Cole first appears in Charmed, the first time Piper uses her freezing power in court, Cole doesn't freeze but in later episodes he does. Why?

Nenita2015

Chosen answer: Because during this scene, Piper was only freezing the Innocents in order to draw out who the demons were. She has the ability to control her power to freeze only what/who she wants at a given time so when she was using her power here, all the demons would remain unfrozen as she intended. Cole knew she and her sisters were witches and what powers they had so he knew Piper could freeze. Since Piper was only focused on freezing the innocents, Cole was just pretending to be frozen in order to pass off being one. Remember, at this point, they do not know Cole is a demon.

I've Got You Under My Skin - S1-E2

Question: What is the song that plays immediately after the opening credits/theme, over the shots of San Fransisco? [At least in the version on Netflix in the UK - other versions seem to have "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia]. The lyrics go something like this: "We hope and we pray for a break, that the weather around us might change, that hope just fell asleep in the hole where burdens keep pulling and pressing the weight of the problems in life that we face, but faith's so incomplete."

Chosen answer: I get the impression that it is a studio band doing a "sound-alike" piece of music that may not have ever been released but was done just for the show. I'm not sure it has a title or can be found anywhere outside of the episode.

We All Scream for Ice Cream - S3-E10

Question: What is the original song playing in the background as Victor enters? Some of the lyrics are "get you out of my head," "you're like a sexual high," "get out of my head".

Answer: This is according to Tunefind: The Cause by the band "27".

Alan Keddie

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Question: When Grams talks with Patty on the phone, Phoebe was surprised that their mom said she had a premonition, and then mentioned that Prue told her that Patty had the power of freezing. How did she or any of the girls know what kind of power Patty could have?

Chosen answer: Most likely from the Book of Shadows, since it's not only a spell book, but a history of the Hallewell line.

Still Charmed & Kicking - S8-E1

Question: Why do the sisters keep changing their appearance throughout a few episodes? We're there issues with replacement actresses that caused the changes? Victor references that they keep changing identities but there is no good explanation as to why.

Chosen answer: You have to watch the previous episodes but basically they are pretending to be dead. They cast a spell to change their appearance in which only Victor and each other can see them for who they are. Their appearance keeps changing because they can't decide what to look like.

Show generally

Question: If Chris says Piper died when he was 14 why was she old at the end? And why don't they say how she died?

Ashari Coles

Chosen answer: Chris originally came from a Dark Future that was changed when he saved Paige's life. It's in that dark future that Piper died.
