Charmed

Season 6 generally

Question: Some episodes towards the end of season 6 feature different end credits with a Warner Brothers logo but in some repeats they replace them with the normal credits - why?

The Painted World - S2-E3

Question: How did Phoebe send Kit inside the painting without being trapped too? Probably she read the spell and not Kit (duh) then she should've been trapped instead of her - or both of them if she held her in her hands. And why did she do that? She knew about the warlock, wouldn't have it been easier, if she'd got inside, found her sisters and together read the liberating spell... as it happened later?

Desperate Housewitches - S8-E4

Question: Why does Paige ask Phoebe and Piper how they vanquished the source the first time when he gets brought back at magic school with a demon and the help of little Wyatt? She was there the first time and helped vanquish him.

Answer: Wasn't Prue the one who helped them kill the source the first time? Not Paige.

Answer: Just a character mistake. The possibilities of "why?" are endless, but it could be that one of the writers forgot, or was a new staff addition, and nobody else picked up on it.

Size Matters - S4-E5

Question: At the end of this episode Leo goes outside to heal the glass from the sign of P3. In a previous episode (Season 3 - The Magic Hour) when Christopher is injured in owl form he explains he can't heal animals. An animals genetic makeup would be a lot more similar to a human's, so why can Leo heal glass but not animals?

Answer: There are a lot of factors involved in who and what types of injuries can be healed, or can't be healed, by a Whitelighter, so their powers are limited. The ability to "heal" glass and clothes is more of a a mending or restoring ability. But, the trigger for healing is love, so it seems (with speculation) this "Love trigger" only applies to human-to-human love. In addition, there are restrictions for Whitelighters and they're only suppose to heal wounds inflicted by evil, so it's possible animal injuries aren't caused by evil and thus can't be healed.

Thanks for the response - hmm I see what you're saying as that had all occurred to me too however Leo healed Piper's finger after she cut it not by evil but by cooking in the kitchen in "blinded by the whitelighter." As for the restoring glass and clothes this is the only time I can recall that he does this as a whitelighter. I'm a big fan of the show and grew up watching it but after my 20th re-watch I realised that had always puzzled me. Still a brilliant show regardless! Thanks again.

Question: So I'm not sure if I understand. Up until Leo was found to be a white lighter, Piper froze him several times. Sorry if this has been addressed before, but was Leo faking being frozen?

Answer: Only witches, or half/part witches eg. Chris, cannot be frozen (if I recall correctly) so, no, Leo was not faking. But that's just my opinion.

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Question: Does anyone know the song that is played right after the intro? Not Secret Smile, but the one played on the Netflix version.

Answer: The song is a studio band original song and not available. I think they didn't even name it. Many of the licensed songs used in "Charmed" originally that Netflix can't or won't pay for have been replaced with similar sounding songs from a studio band. This is one of the few completely different sounding songs.

Show generally

Question: Why didn't Prue ever make cameos after she died like her mother and grandmother did from time to time?

Answer: Shannen Doherty (who played Prue) really wanted to leave the show beginning of season 3. There was tension between her and Alyssa Milano and she had a hard time working with others who didn't seem to care about the show as much as she did. When she told the show's producers she wanted to leave (get out of her contact early) she was told "no." Once she was done with her contact, she simply had no desire to return to the show, even for a cameo. The other characters who died during the show weren't part of main cast and under contact, so to them, doing an episode here or there wasn't a big deal. To Doherty, there would have been too much drama (and probably hatred). There were also reports that Doherty didn't give her permission for her likeness to be used after she left, although show producers said they didn't use any of her likeness due to budget issues.
