Charmed (1998)

21 corrected entries in season 4

Muse to My Ears - S4-E9

Corrected entry: Why did Phoebe have to write a spell to vanquish the warlock in this episode? When they have vanquished warlocks before they used the power of three spell, "the power of three will set us free".

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Spells work best when written to deal with a specific demon or type of demon. There are many demons who they write spells for, and others they simply use what worked for their ancestors who then wrote the spell in the Book of Shadows.

Marry-Go-Round - S4-E15

Corrected entry: The seer tells Cole that his son will be a force of good magic unless he marries Phoebe in a dark ceremony, but in 4-1 "Charmed Again" Cole and Leo tell them about the 48hr window where a new witch gets to choose whether they are good or evil.

brianjr0412

Correction: The seer was predicting the future of the child they would have if the dark wedding was not performed. Since the child would be raised as a witch, without the dark ceremony, the 48 hour window relating to a witch just finding out about their powers would not apply.

Charmed Again (2) - S4-E2

Corrected entry: After Cole tells Leo, Piper and Phoebe the source has surfaced, Piper asks Leo if he can "sense Paige". Leo replies, saying no, "she's too new". But aren't white lighters meant to help witches who are just coming into their powers, which is exactly what Paige is doing?

Correction: It is also stated through out the entire show in various episodes that if a white lighter hasn't formed a bond with his new charge they can't sense them. For example when Leo first came around the charmed ones it was to get to know them and form that bond. This also occurs with Paige's new charges.

Trial by Magic - S4-E11

Corrected entry: Piper convinced Paige that they should use their powers to make Andrew confess to murder. Paige wonders why it's okay to reveal their powers to a mortal, and Piper and Leo explain to her that it's all right to use their powers on a mortal because they're trying to help an innocent. But in episode 2-19: "Ex Libris," Prue wanted to use a truth spell to force the pawnshop owner to confess to murder, and Phoebe pointed out that it is an abuse of their powers to punish the guilty.

DavidK93

Correction: There's a difference between helping the innocent and punishing the guilty. Sometimes, helping an innocent will inadvertently also punish the guilty, but the main goal for them is to stop pain and suffering happening directly to an innocent.

The Fifth Halliwell - S4-E16

Corrected entry: The Seer tells Cole about the importance of the upcoming "Harvest Moon." But this episode aired in mid-March, while the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. The full moon closest to the vernal equinox is known as the Worm Moon.

Correction: Real time is not taken into account within the fiction of the show, so it doesn't matter what the actual date is when the episode aired.

Brain Drain - S4-E7

Corrected entry: Right after Piper comes out of her crazytown adventure, she comes down the stairs in completly different clothes and hairdo than she went in with.

Correction: This is not true, Piper has the same hair and same clothes.

Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: In episode 3-13: "Bride and Gloom," Prue was married to a warlock in a dark ceremony, causing her to almost immediately become evil, and this caused her sisters and the Book of Shadows to become evil as well because all of the magic is connected. In the fourth season, Phoebe married the Source in a dark ceremony, and did eventually herself become evil (as evidenced by her ability to touch the Grimoire), but the evil did not extend to her sisters or the Book. So the mistake is twofold: Phoebe did not immediately turn evil, and her sisters and the Book never turned evil.

DavidK93

Correction: The reason evil traveled from Prue to her other sisters and to the book was because of specific magic that the dark priestess performed. The marriage in itself wasn't enough to turn them evil, it was the ritual she performed in addition to the marriage.

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Corrected entry: When Nathan and Rick throw the knife and stab Leo after Leo pulls the knife out he heals himself, However throughout the whole series Leo makes it clear that Whitelighters cant heal themselves.

akievit91

Correction: Its been noted throughout the series that the only way to kill a whitelighter is with the poison from a darklighter's arrow. Leo can't heal himself when injured from a darklighter, but can heal himself from other wounds.

Marry-Go-Round - S4-E15

Corrected entry: After Page turns Pheobe invisible, Pheobe jumbs up and down, but the clothes in the mirror that are supposed to be her reflection don't move at all.

Correction: Actually that is not Phoebe's reflection, but Piper's. I you look closely you can see the bottom part of Piper's head in the mirror.

Brain Drain - S4-E7

Corrected entry: If the vanquishing spell doesn't work in the Halliwell Hospital place, then the Power Relinquishing Spell shouldn't work either.

Correction: The reason the vanquishing spell didn't work was because the spell was to vanquish the Chameleon demon. But it was The Source disguised as the Chameleon demon, so it is obviously not going to work.

Hell Hath No Fury - S4-E3

Corrected entry: During the show up until now, they make it clear Prue is 35-37. But when Piper and Paige visit Prue's grave, it says 1970-2001, therefore making her only 31.

Correction: In the season one episode "Dream Sorcerer", a nurse in the hospital states that Prue is 27 when she is brought in after the accident. This is consistent with her grave saying that she was 31 when she died.

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Corrected entry: Leo has always stipulated that he cannot heal himself, but when he gets stabbed by Rick his wound instantly heals itself.

Correction: Leo can't heal himself, however, the only thing that can kill a whitelighter is a darklighter's arrow. Since Leo was stabbed by a knife, it healed automatically, just like when Piper blows him up time and again.

Charmed Again (2) - S4-E2

Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Piper were trying to help Paige use her powers, they said that she should wave her arm at the candle because thats what Prue did. But when Prue got her powers, she controlled her magic with her eyes not her arms.

Correction: Actually, Phoebe tells Paige that Prue did this "squinty thing" with her eyes and that Paige should try that.

Trial by Magic - S4-E11

Corrected entry: After Glen finds out about Paige being a witch he jokes about calling off the tabloids. Piper freezes him and says, "you wouldn't find it so funny if you'd lost a sister that way". But time was reversed and the sisters' magic was never revealed, Prue was killed by Shax. Also Piper had no memory of that day, when time was reversed she had no idea why Phoebe wasn't there, so why would she blame Prue's death on that?

Correction: Prue would never have died if they hadn't been exposed to the media. Without the exposure, time wouldn't have needed to be turned back. As for Piper not knowing about the exposure, Phoebe, Cole, and Leo were in the Underworld and therefore not affected by the time change. They would have filled her in on how and why Prue died.

Charmed Again (1) - S4-E1

Corrected entry: Paige apparently only gets her witch powers in this episode, but that doesn't fit with what we know of magic from the rest of the series. If Paige was born a witch, she would have always had her witch powers unless they were bound (which we know they weren't since she would have also lost her orbing ability until now), so she should have been telekinetically orbing things her whole life.

Shay

Correction: In a later episode, Leo and Paige go back in time to when Paige's family was killed in a car crash. We find out then that she survived because she orbed out before the crash. So, she had her powers, but she was not aware of them.

Charmed Again (2) - S4-E2

Corrected entry: When the Source, as Shane, stabbed Cole, it was broad daylight. The sisters and Leo didn't find him to heal him until late at night. This means that Cole's semiconscious, bleeding body was lying next to a city sidewalk for half a day without being noticed by anyone.

DavidK93

Correction: It is possible that no one saw him, this is not a mistake.

Trial by Magic - S4-E11

Corrected entry: When Paige decides to use magic to show Glenn that she really is a witch, she casts a spell that is supposed to "expand his imagination," but instead makes his body able to expand and contract like elastic. But why would Paige cast an unfamiliar spell on Glenn, instead of just using her orbing talent to provide quick and obvious proof of the reality of magic?

DavidK93

Correction: Because by "expanding his imagination" he will be more likely to believe and accept what she is telling him, while simply orbing might make him freak out and not be able to accept it.

Hell Hath No Fury - S4-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene where Paige's coworker Donnie makes a crack at Billy the mail boy about his inability to "tear [himself] away from the cleavage in this section," he glares accusingly at Paige. But Paige was wearing a high-necked red blouse. She certainly looked attractive, but there was no cleavage in sight.

DavidK93

Correction: Donnie is a jerk. He made a mean comment about Paige that probably had more to do with the kind of clothes she usually wears than what she was wearing that particular day.

Marry-Go-Round - S4-E15

Corrected entry: In this episode, Cole has become the Source, and he has no trouble attending his own wedding to Phoebe in a church. But in episode 4-2: "Charmed Again (2)," we learned that the Source cannot enter a church at all.

DavidK93

Correction: The Source couldn't enter the church in "Charmed Again (2)" because of the gargoyles. Not every church has gargoyles - maybe the one Phoebe and Cole were getting married in didn't, which would allow him to enter. Given how careful he was about planning the wedding, I'm sure he would have made sure of that first.

Shay

Size Matters - S4-E5

Corrected entry: In episode 3-5: "Sight Unseen," the sisters learned the importance of taking mundane precautions when it comes to their personal safety, after Prue was stalked and almost killed by a mortal human being. Particularly stressed was the need to lock their door. In this episode, however, Paige comments that the front door was unlocked, and Leo says that the front door is usually left that way since otherwise demons just break the door down.

DavidK93

Correction: It's possible that, in the year since Prue was stalked, they realised that locking the door was more hassle than it was worth since, as Leo points out, it did keep getting broken. Maybe they changed their minds - it does happen.

Shay

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Corrected entry: In the episode Saving Private Leo, Leo can't heal the dead but yet he manages to heal Piper even though she died.

Correction: She didn't die. Her spirit was still there, close to her body. As they explain it all the time, you die when you move on. When you're a ghost, you haven't moved on yet.
