Love Hurts - S1-E21

Corrected entry: In this episode when Piper says the power switching spell so that she can heal Leo it switches not only her and Leo's powers, but also, Prue's and Phoebe's; however in future seasons it only affects the witches it is meant to. (00:19:00)

Correction: The first time the power switching spell was used, all of the sisters were in the room when it was cast, thus all their powers got swapped. But in the future episode this post is referring to (it specifies episodes plural, but the only other episode this spell was used in is "Ordinary Witches" from season 7) Piper and Phoebe were the only ones home when they did the spell so it didn't affect anyone else. Furthermore, in the first episode the spell was used, Prue also swapped powers with a Dark-lighter and simply had Phoebe cover her ears so as to not be affected by the spell, implying that one needs to actually hear the spell for it to have any effect.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Prue wonders where the cream is, the little container thereof slides along the table to her. Then the cream drains from the container and burbles up through her coffee. However, that's completely discontinuous with how Prue's power ever worked at any other time in the next three years. The cream should have needed to leap out of the container and into the coffee, simply traveling physically across space. (00:29:20)

Correction: Actually, Prue displays a power that is like a branch of her Telekinesis and is knows as Telematerializarion, which allows her to transport liquids through space.

Prue never possessed a power called "telematerializarion." She possessed telekinesis, which caused objects to move physically through space, and later astral projection, that created a separate manifestation of herself. Other than this single instance in the pilot, Prue never had an ability to cause objects or substance to dematerialize and materialize elsewhere. Paige's orbing telekinesis worked similarly to that, but that's not the ability Prue had.

The Wedding from Hell - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When the Charmed Ones run up to the bedroom at the end of the episode, Prue can't find the poignard as she rummages through her black purse. Elliot, who has fallen from the bed, suddenly picks up the poignard from the ground, where it is sitting next to a black purse. The way the shot is set up, it looks as if the purse has fallen there, and the poignard fell out. But since Prue is still holding the purse that the poignard was supposed to be in, and she hadn't been to that room before, the poignard's presence on the floor is completely inexplicable. (00:41:40)

DavidK93

Correction: The purse on the ground, despite being black, is very different from Prue's purse, it is most likely somebody else's. As for the knife, the three sisters are all shoved when the bridesmaids enter and Prue's purse falls from her. We don't see the knife falling out, but its reasonable to assume that it did so since it ended up a few feet away where Elliot was.

The Wendigo - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Approximately 10 minutes into the episode, the Haliwells are in the kitchen getting breakfast. While sitting at the table, Piper is heard to say "it's not, it's fine", but her lips don't move. (00:10:20)

pinkwafer

Correction: The shot is moving toward her while she is saying the line. It doesn't show her face.

Thank You for Not Morphing - S1-E3

Corrected entry: After the shapeshifter turned from a mailman into Andy, Prue told him about her father returning to town. Later, the real Andy came to the house, and then after a cut, he and Prue were talking about Prue's father, Victor. Andy has known Prue since high school, and therefore knows that Victor has been gone for twenty years. And since Prue only told the shapeshifter about Victor's return, the real Andy didn't know about it. So how could he and Prue have gotten onto the subject of Victor being in San Francisco, a fact that surely would have surprised the real Andy, without Prue figuring out that Andy wasn't the one she talked to earlier that day? (00:16:25)

DavidK93

Correction: We only see the second half of this conversation. They could have gotten onto the topic a number of ways, without Andy questioning it.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the first episode Prue uses her powers to tighten the tie around her boss' neck as she walks down the hall, but in future episodes Prue must be looking at the object she moves with her power. (00:24:45)

Correction: Actually in other episodes (like the one where she was kidnapped and tied to a chair in the basement) she only needed to picture it in her mind. She didn't even know she was doing it at this time.

Is There a Woogy in the House? - S1-E15

Corrected entry: In the scene where Prue's guests are about to leave for Quake there is a crew member visible at the door and opening the door and walking out. (00:23:20)

Stephen Edmonds 1

Correction: It is actually one of the characters in the episode walking out.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The newspaper which you can see Prue holding at the end of this episode (right before she 'half-blinks' to shut the door) has something written on it like yadda yadda yadda 'Doubt Fire' yadda yadda yadda. Yep, thats right, the same newspaper from Mrs Doubtfire. (00:42:25)

Correction: Not sure if I'm missing something but the newspaper actually says Beneath the Heading 'Gazette': 'Police Doubt Fire Was Accidental' with a photo beneath of what looks like a burning apartment building.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Jeremy is a warlock, but he seemingly cannot blink. In all other episodes all warlocks have the ability to blink, but Jeremy had to run all of the way to the manor. While in the episode The Witch is Back, Melinda says that a warlock who blinks must have taken it from a witch, that is not the case for the entire rest of the series where blinking is only an evil power used by warlocks. So either the writers changed their minds about what they wanted "blinking" to be, or they forgot what they had said about it originally, thus making this mistake.

Correction: Jeremy had to run all the way back to the manor because the sisters had cast a spell on him dampening his powers. The sisters had to use the power of three spell to vanquish him as well as the spell Piper cast on him, so he was pretty weakened at the point of the first spell.

When Bad Warlocks Go Good - S1-E18

Corrected entry: After the sisters stop Brendan from killing the woman and the police arrive, the woman tells Andy that she heard the name Prue. Andy tells Prue he can place her at the scene. But she can't be the only Prue in the city and the woman never saw Prue, so he can not place her at the scene.

Correction: Andy meant that he knew Prue was there at the scene. It might not have held up in a court of law or anything, but at this time Andy knew that the sisters (especially Prue) had a habit of being at crime scenes without any reasonable explanation. And honestly, Prue isn't exactly a common name.

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Corrected entry: According to this episode, the binding spell that Grams cast on the sisters when they were children would be automatically unbound when she died. If this happened they would not have needed to read a spell to gain their powers in the pilot episode 'Something Wicca This Way Comes'.

Correction: Grams bounded their powers including spell casting and potion making, so when she died only their spell casting and potion making powers were unbound, Phoebe still needed to read the spell to gain all their powers back.

No. Grams said their powers, that includes all powers. If they had all powers reading from the book would not be needed.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: At the very beginning, we see Phoebe running to the house. Not Piper. The way the episode is edited would have you think it was actually Piper returning to the house. Inspection of the umbrellas they carry into the house will show that the one from the beginning is the same as the one Phoebe brings with her. Piper's umbrella is black with white spots whereas Phoebes is black with a trim around the outside. (00:02:00)

Correction: The person we see running up the stairs could not be Phoebe beacuse this person is wearing a dress, and when Phoebe comes in she is wearing pants.

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Andy gives Prue a key as an early birthday gift, and tells her that it's a key to the Calistoga Spa, where he has arranged for them to spend the following weekend, in adjoining rooms. But where did the key come from? You get a room key when you check into a resort, not the week before your vacation. (00:00:40)

DavidK93

Correction: The key is just a gesture saying that is where he wants to take her for the weekend. It is not the actual key to their room.

Deja Vu All Over Again - S1-E22

Corrected entry: In 'Deja Vu All Over Again' Tempest tells Rodriguez he has brought him back to the exact moment they met. Tempest first appeared to Rodriguez at midnight, but it's light outside when he says this. (00:16:55)

Shay

Correction: Actually Tempess says that he brought him back to the place they first met.

The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts - S1-E8

Corrected entry: In the lift, Tanya has a white top beneath her blue jumper, but in the manor, she doesn't have a white top on. (00:24:15)

Correction: You are correct that in the first scene when they are in the manor you see no white top on underneath her blue sweater. After they show Prue and Andy talking they cut back to the manor and Tanya was sitting on the couch looking through the book of shadows you can clearly see her white top.It may have been beacause her sweater was up higher so you could not see it in the first scene.

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Corrected entry: If the sisters are innately magical even without their powers, as we see when they go back to save Melinda in episode 3-4, how are Piper and Prue frozen by little Piper?

Correction: When Prue and Piper were in the diner trying to use their powres in front of their mom and failed to work they assumed that only one set of girls can only have powers. So if older Piper and Prue did not have any powers they were actually not witches.

Stephen Edmonds 1

Deja Vu All Over Again - S1-E22

Corrected entry: In 'Deja Vu All Over Again', after Piper calls Phoebe it's an hour before she gets to Quake and only after that does Joanna arrive. During the third time they live the day Phoebe tells Piper to come home immediately when she calls, but Piper talks to Joanna before she leaves. If she was supposed to come home immediately why would she still be at the restaurant an hour later?

Shay

Correction: Phoebe says that you should ome home as soon as you can beacause we have a lot of demon hunting to do. So that would give Piper some time to tell Joanna what se can do with her life and her show.

Dream Sorcerer - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Prue is dreaming and the dream sorcerer scratches her, she starts to bleed on her left shoulder. However, when she is checking in the mirror after having woken up, the scratches are on the right shoulder.

Ronnie Bischof

Correction: If you look into a mirror you are seeing yourself in reverse. When Prue was looking at the scratches on her back they are on the left side becaue of the mirror effect makes it look like it is on the right side.

The Power of Two - S1-E20

Corrected entry: In the first shots of this episode, they show the ghost of Alcatraz and a soul collector. They failed to take away the shadows of both the ghost and the soul collector. There's a scene where a crowd of people are looking into the jail cell that the ghost and the soul collector are in. It shows no ghost, no soul collector and, importantly, no shadows. The next scene shows the ghost and the soul collector, and miraculously they have shadows. (00:02:35 - 00:05:00)

Correction: It's showing what the cell looks like to ordinary people: empty. But then it shows the TV viewers that there really is something in the cell.

The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts - S1-E8

Corrected entry: The morning after Prue says the truth spell, Piper is wearing a green shirt with a necklace, but when she goes to Quake, she is wearing a white top with a necklace, and when Piper is back at the manor, she is wearing the same green top, but without a necklace.

Correction: Not really a mistake. Many people have work clothes and casual clothes that they change during the day, especially in the service industry.
