Charmed

Charmed (1998)

16 corrected entries in season 2

Be Careful What You Witch For - S2-E22

Corrected entry: In this episode, Phoebe has a sprained ankle from fighting a demon. Surely as it was an injury caused by fighting evil (as stated in an earlier episode, Leo can only heal injuries caused by witch related activities), Leo should have been able to heal it?

Correction: Phoebe doesn't need a witch power to suffer from a sprained ankle, whether it's because of a demon or not. A sprained ankle happens to a lot of normal people, hence Leo's reason not to heal it.

THGhost

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: In the second season, Leo was suspended from his position as a whitelighter for a period of several weeks. But why didn't the Charmed Ones receive a substitute whitelighter during that time?

DavidK93

Correction: It is entirely possible that they did get a new whitelighter but not know about him/her. After all Leo only came out as a whitelighter after Phoebe caught him using magic.

Ex Libris - S2-E19

Corrected entry: Charlene said that she could remember up to when she picked up the encyclopedia, however when they were retracing her steps, she couldn't remember where it was.

Correction: Charlene remembered walking down the aisle to get the encyclopedia. That doesn't mean she remembers exactly where the encyclopedia was in the aisle. After all, a lot has happened to her since then. What with getting decapitated by a demon and becoming a ghost and all.

That Old Black Magic - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Tuatha uses a spell to disempower a witch, and the spell requires "a fresh human heart". Tuatha is an evil witch, so why is the same spell in the The Book of Shadows, a book of good magic? A spell requiring a fresh human heart is obviously not good magic, and the only way an evil spell could appear in the book is if the Charmed Ones themselves were evil, which they are not.

Correction: This is not a mistake, but ties into the exact nature of witchcraft. The craft itself is neither good nor evil, it is neutral. It is the witch using it that decides whether to use it for good or evil. It was included in the Book of Shadows as a reference or in a rare case when a good witch may have no choice to use it, maybe not by killing for a human heart, but obtaining one from a recently deceased person. Tuatha used to be a good witch, but turned evil. The spell may have been in her book when she was good, but she only started using it when she turned evil. It's the intent of the witch in how those are used. There are many spells and potions in the Book of Shadows that cause death or harm, again the intent is how they are used. If the girls had been more advanced in their craft they would have probably anticipated that Tuatha would cast that spell to take away their power.

Pardon My Past - S2-E14

Corrected entry: In the Manor, in 1924, P. Russell threw a fireball at P. Bowen, who disintegrated it with her cryokinetic power. They did this in front of dozens of mortals. Since both good and evil magical forces want to prevent magic from being exposed to the world, something like that would almost never happen. And even if it did, this was all very similar to what Phoebe and Paige did in the marketplace in episode 6-19:"Crimes And Witch-Demeanors," which immediately brought out the Cleaners to wipe everybody's memories of having witnessed magic.

DavidK93

Correction: It was already known that the people in the manor knew they were witches. The book was there for everybody to see, and potions and amulets were lying around on the table where the Book of Secrets was, so it was no secret that they were witches.

Pardon My Past - S2-E14

Corrected entry: The family tree shows the girl's father is Victor Jones. However, other episodes refer to him as Bennett or Halliwell. Also, on the family tree it shows that P. Bowen (past Prue) died in 1972. However, Prue was born in 1970 - not possible.

Correction: P. Bowen (Past Prue) died in May of 1970, not in 1972 and Prue was born in October of 1970, so the dates line up just fine.

Murphy's Luck - S2-E16

Corrected entry: Phoebe has to explain to Leo that she and Prue were once in a car accident and Phoebe was injured badly, but if Leo has been watching the charmed ones since they were children or birth, wouldn't he already know about it.

Correction: Since the Charmed ones had their powers bound after Phoebe was born, their was no need for Leo to be involved with them until their powers came back to them, which was after Grams died.

Pardon My Past - S2-E14

Corrected entry: In this episode past evil Phoebe has the power to throw fire. But in season 4, when Phoebe becomes queen of the underworld, Leo says throwing fire is an upper level demon power.

Correction: Past Phoebe was seduced into evil from Anton so infact she was evil. Present day Phoebe was carrying a demonic child who took control of her. She was not evil but went willingly with Cole/The Source.

Ms. Hellfire - S2-E9

Corrected entry: Towards the end, Prue believes Piper and Phoebe are imposters and she uses her power to throw them back - but their powers don't work on good witches.

Correction: Their powers do work on good witches, it's only Piper's freezing power that does not work on them.

Dedderbot

That Old Black Magic - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Tuatha says that there is no such thing as a courage potion, and when the girls search the book of shadows they also say that there is no magical way of giving confidence. But in episode 1-11, 'Feats of Clay', Piper casts a confidence spell on Doug so he will stop breaking everything in the restaurant.

Correction: Given that the confidence spell on Doug backfired and turned him into a conceited ass, they likely discounted that spell right away.

Captain Defenestrator

Pardon My Past - S2-E14

Corrected entry: The family tree was written in the same handwriting, and that includes that Grams died, so that would have meant that either Prue, Piper or Phoebe had written the family tree.

Correction: There was someone else that was around the entire time. Leo.

The Painted World - S2-E3

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is trying to explain to Piper why she cast a smart spell she says, "Then again, you probably do know what I'm talking about, you have a four year degree". But in 3-7, 'Power Outage', (when the sisters are fighting because they have been infected with rage by Andras) Phoebe shouts "At least i had the courage to go away to college. What's the matter Piper, the real world too much for you?"

Correction: When Phoebe states this to Piper, her emphasis is on going "away" to college. It's been established that both Piper and Prue have college degrees. Obviously Piper attended school in San Francisco, while Phoebe went to school in New York (before dropping out).

Witch Trial - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When the BOS was about to be taken, its pages turned, how could Phoebe get there that quickly from her bedroom. In fact, how could she hear them turning if she was in her bedroom, asleep with her door closed. (In "The fourth sister" all of the sisters had their doors closed at night).

Correction: There is no reason to believe that Phoebe was asleep in her bedroom just because she was wearing a nightdress, maybe she was just on her way to the attic after she woke up. This would be likely as she was interested in finding out all she could about witchcraft on the anniversary of the day they received their powers.

They're Everywhere - S2-E7

Corrected entry: In the scene where Phoebe brings in the flowers from outside, she tells Prue they are for her and continues to say there is no card. How does she know they are for Prue if there is no card to say so?

Correction: The sender would have had to give the florist Prue's name, which would then in turn be told to the driver, then to Phoebe when the flowers were delivered. The card with flowers identifies the sender to the recipient, and the sender can chose not to include one.

Ex Libris - S2-E19

Corrected entry: Phoebe's final is on Friday morning, but when she comes to the Goo-Goo Dolls concert at P3 (on Saturday, according to the posters) she's already received her grade. There is no way her final would have been corrected and her grade posted up that fast.

Shay

Correction: Her grade very much could have been posted by that point. I taught a college course and my class had their final on a friday night, We had to have their final exam grades and overall class grades by Sunday morning. So that is the same time period and everyone's grades were done. Maybe the professor had help.

Be Careful What You Witch For - S2-E22

Corrected entry: When Prue gets turned into a teenager after wishing that she wanted it to be like it was the first time, she was at a cafe with Dick. When the genie is freed, he goes to the same cafe. When Piper and Leo go looking for him, Piper supposedly knows which cafe the genie found Prue at, even though Prue has no memory of the future so she couldn't have told them.

Correction: Prue planned the date before she was turned into a teenager and as her sisters know about Dick, she probably told them what they were doing that day, which was going to a cafe. The conversation may not have happened on screen but its perfectly reasonable, I tell my sisters wherever I'm going on my dates.
