17 corrected entries in show generally

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "From Fear to Eternity", it is established that Barbas can only appear every 1300 years for 24 hours, but because he became such a popular character, he reappeared in five subsequent episodes, the majority of which took place within a year of each other.

Cubs Fan

Correction: In the first episode with Barbas he was freed from the curse that only allowed him to appear every 1300 years, which is why he was able to show up frequently afterwards.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In 2-16 "Murphy's Luck," Leo tells the sisters that the darklighter gets his victims to commit suicide because it's the only way to prevent a future whitelighter from becoming a whightlighter. But in future episodes with darklighters, he tells the sisters that if the darklight kills their target, it will prevent them from doing all the good they are destined to do as a whitelighter.

Correction: Maggie had already done all the good she was destined to, meaning if the Darklighter was to shoot her, she would still become a whitelighter because she had already earned her wing, as they say. It's believed that the only sin that cannot be repented is suicide, so it would be the only way to damn her.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In episode 1-3, 'Thank You For Not Morphing', when talking about their father, Phoebe says "He sent us birthday cards." But after that episode they made a number of references to the fact that he never sent them birthday cards, like when Piper tries to convince the others to sign Victor's card in episode 2-19.

Correction: When Phoebe says this, one of her sisters replies something like 'Selective memory much?', suggesting that in actual fact he rarely, if ever, sent them cards.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "Thank You For Not Morphing," Victor is played by Tony Denison. But in "We All Scream For Ice Cream," and all the other episodes with him, he was played by James Read. The actors don't look anything like each other, either.

Correction: A change in casting for a character is not uncommon. Epecially a minor character like Victor.

A Demon

Show generally

Corrected entry: When Phoebe first discovered that Leo was an angel and he had come back to help Max, this episode implies that he can only help new witches who are discovering their power, but he stayed with the charmed ones for years.

Correction: Leo stayed with the Charmed Ones for longer than any of his other charges because he was married to Piper.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Grams appears to the sisters (Prue, Piper and Phoebe) for the first time in the second season, "Witch Trial." When Prue dies (season three) Grams tells Piper and Phoebe they aren't ready to see her yet, but five seasons/years later they still don't get to see her, even though they got to see Grams approx. 2 years after her death.

Correction: We don't know what qualifies as "ready." It could be getting over losing her, which they never fully did; it could be needing her badly enough, which they didn't once Paige came about; or it could be some cosmic thing that we never found out. The "rules" on what makes them ready aren't ever explained.

Captain Defenestrator

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the whole show, Leo heals humans, but in one episode when everyone still thought Cole was just a human, Phoebe asks Leo to heal Cole and Leo says he can't, it's against the rules.

Correction: Leo can only heal people or humans that the Charmed ones have saved from Demons, Cole was not attacked by Demons that Pheobe can tell that is why Leo can't heal him. Pheobe thought that he just got hurt.

Stephen Edmonds 1

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the first season, witches aren't allowed to know they have a whitelighter, but later in the seasons, all Leo's witches call for him.

Correction: Witches are allowed to know their whitelighter. The Charmed Ones were a special case because their mother had an affair with her whitelighter, so Leo was ordered not to reveal himself to them.

Captain Defenestrator

Show generally

Corrected entry: How come when Rex (Season 1) astral projected, he couldn't be seen, but when Prue astral projects, she can be seen?

Correction: Prue's astral projection is a different version of the power than the warlock ability, as we see later on when Barbas astral projects as well.

Captain Defenestrator

Show generally

Corrected entry: If the power relinquishing spell is in Piper's mind, as we see in episode 4-7 'Brain Drain' when the Source tries to retrieve it, then surely they could have used that on Tuatha in episode 2-6 'That Old Black Magic'.

Correction: The spell can only be used to relinquish your own powers, i.e. Tuatha would have had to say the spell in order to lose her powers.

Show generally

Corrected entry: When the sisters are in the nightclub P3 they can hear everything they say to each other really well. If you are in a nightclub you have to shout over the music but they can talk normal and hear every word the other says.

Correction: Some nightclubs are not that loud. Plus most clubs turn the volume up as it gets later.

shortdanzr

Show generally

Corrected entry: Prue's death was not originally scripted. They just took her out of the show because Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano became bitter enemies, and Phoebe was a more popular character. In fact, Shannen Doherty showed up for rehearsal for season four and they told her she was fired.

Correction: Shannon Doherty actually left the show Charmed months before season 4 started, she actually made up her mind about that earlier in December. She left because she thought the work was no longer fulfilling and to quote her, "Theres too much drama on the set, and not enough passion for the work". She did have words with Alyssa Milano backstage and they weren't the best of friends, but according to her, that didn't effect her decision to leave the show.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In some later episodes of season four, Piper is sad because she has some fertility problems, making it hard for her to conceive a child. The only reason Wyatt was conceived is because Piper accidentally ate a chocolate that made her fertile with demon seed (explaining Wyatt's future evilness). But in season six, Chris is conceived as if Piper never had fertility problems at all.

Correction: Many people with fertility problems go on to concieve naturally.

Myridon

Show generally

Corrected entry: When magic was exposed to the world when the charmed ones were trying to vanquish the demon that eventually killed Prue, everything got out of hand, and they needed tempas in the end. However, seasons later when Wyatt (Piper and Leo's baby) exposed magic by bringing the dragon out of the television, the cleaners came and erased everything, and there was no mess (besides the loss of Wyatt. Why didn't the cleaners come earlier, when the news crew captured the exposure on tape?

Correction: As was stated, the Charmed Ones were well known for dealing with the messes on their own. As such, the only real reason the Cleaners finally interfered was due to Wyatt and his powerful abilities.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Any time Leo uses his healing touch on someone, their damaged clothing is repaired and their blood stains disappear. Since Leo can't even heal injured animals, his power certainly wouldn't have any effect on torn fabric.

DavidK93

Correction: Since Leo fixes broken pipes with his power in "Saving Private Leo" and the P3 sign in "Size Matters", we can assume that he can heal just about anything. It's anyone's guess why he can't heal animals.

Shay

Show generally

Corrected entry: From the episode where she gets her explosion power Piper seems to ignore her freezing power, even when it would be better to use it. For example, in any episode where she is faced with more than one demon instead of blowing them up one at a time it would make more sense to freeze them all at once. Even if her explosions are more powerful sometimes, there's no logical reason why she should always use them in every situation.

Shay

Correction: Yes, there is no LOGICAL reason. But considering that Prue was the only one to ever get a pure offensive power (and remembering how long Phoebe whined about not getting an active power), it makes sense that Piper, having been thinking about this all these years, would use the spectacular, flashy, big-boom power before her tried and true freezing, especially in high-pressure situations. Also remember that Piper's known from the start that she can't freeze certain baddies, so it makes sense that her first instinct would be to "reach for the explosions."

Show generally

Corrected entry: Fair enough, Paige didn't get her witchly powers until she met her sisters and they vanquished Shax together. But not all of her powers are rooted in witchcraft - her orbing, at least, is rooted 100% in her whitelighter heritage. We saw that she orbed in the crash that killed her adopted parents - so why did it take her, conveniently, 21 years to find out she could orb?

Phoebe

Correction: Remember that at first Paige could only orb instinctively to escape from danger, and how often does that happen in everyday life? The car crash and the first time she used her powers to escape Shax were probably the only times she had ever used her power. Her later ability to orb anywhere, anytime, came from months of training.
