Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Corrected entry: In this episode Wyatt has his wiccaning. After all of the vanquishing is done with the Necromancer, it's finally time for the wiccaning and the spell that is said is this:"I call forth from space and time, Matriarchs from the Halliwell line, Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends Our family spirit without end, To gather now in this sacred place And help bring this child to grace." In this spell it is said to bring forth "daughters and sisters" from the Halliwell line, Prue died in the third season and this is now the fifth season, shouldn't she have been summoned as well to bring her nephew Wyatt to grace?

Correction: Gram and Patty revealed in the comic book version that Prue could not be at the wiccaning because she was reincarnated to her next life as Patience because her destiny was not complete.

Cat House - S5-E18

Corrected entry: Phoebe says to Paige that she didn't know that Kit was their familiar, that she was just some cat that kept hanging around on the porch. But they learned that Kit was their familiar in episode 3-17 'Pre-witched', and they also said that Kit is male, unlike the woman in this episode.

Correction: They did not learn that Kit was their familiar in "Pre-witched." The idea of familiars was introduced that episode, but they never explicitly stated that Kit was theirs. It may have been hinted towards the audience the way the cat always hung around them and such, but no one ever actually told the girls' that Kit was their familiar. Granted, you'd think they would've suspected it being witches and all, but since it wasn't actually stated until "Cat House" I would not consider it a plot hole/error. They did call Kit a boy though, and not just in that episode, so the fact that Kit turns into a woman when revealed as their familiar is certainly an error.

Cat House - S5-E18

Corrected entry: In episode 3-9: "Coyote Piper," Piper danced sexily on the bar while the song "Unbelievable" played. She danced only to the one song before her sisters pulled her off the bar. In this episode, Phoebe and Paige physically enter Piper's memory (magically enhanced for accuracy), and a different song plays during Piper's dance, despite it being the exact same video footage. (00:33:35)


Correction: The reason why the music is different when Piper is dancing on top of the bar in the memory of the episode "Cat House" is because once the series had ended, any music that was used during the course of the series the license had ended and could no longer be used, with the future reproduction of DVDs of the series. All music that was used including the theme song was replaced, all with the exception of the scenes of the many different bands that performed at P3, which were kept and along with the show's outro music, which was composed by the show production staff Jay Gruska. Any TV networks that air the show will still have the original music, but other video media platforms such as Netflix, will have the new changes to it.

Thanks for the information, but in this case, if true, it proves that the change was made in episode 5-8 as aired on TV, because I saw music other than "Unbelievable" on television, in syndication on TNT, rather than on a platform. The reason I noticed the difference was that I watched the two episodes close together in time, both on TNT.


Cat House - S5-E18

Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Paige are in Piper's memory of her wedding, the warlock steps on the cake topper, crushing it. Piper feels a pain in her heart, and it shows it disappearing in the future, leading you to believe that it will have some significance. Yet, it is never brought up again in the series.

Correction: It foreshadows the couple's marriage falling apart next season.

A Witch's Tail (1) - S5-E1

Corrected entry: In the episode "P3 H20" we learn that Patty died because of the Water Demon, which is why Prue is afraid of water. However in this episode we are told that Patty was killed by the Sea Hag, and that's why Piper develops her demon fear upon becoming pregnant.


Correction: Paige actually mentions the water demon. Saying that the Sea Hag reminds her of it and that it kills in a fascinating way. That is when Piper states that she knows about the water demon because it killed their mother.

Sympathy for the Demon - S5-E7

Corrected entry: When Cole drinks the power stripping potion, his powers go to Barbas, but in season 4's "Black as Cole," when Cole is hit with the power stripping potion, his powers just disappear, no one gets them.


Correction: We are talking about completely different powers that act in completely different ways - it's not the same as stripping his demon half from his human half.

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Corrected entry: Although the actress has changed, Piper's doctor appears to be the same character as Eva, the shuvani, Paige even says 'we saved her shuvani tribe'. But throughout this episode they call her Eve. And she isn't a different tribe member because Paige tells Piper she already knows of their power, and Eva is the only one who knew from her tribe. (00:04:20)

Correction: Ava was the doctor whose clan they helped by vanquishing Orin in the "The Eyes Have It". Later on in the episode "Centennial Charmed" Eve is helping Piper prepare for Wyatt, and Paige almost orbs in front of her by accident while sneezing. They send Eve out of the room to find some ingredients after she suggests an old Gypsy remedy to stop the sneezing, and Phoebe says "it's a good thing Eve didn't see that." Paige doesn't see the big deal, because she belonged to the same gypsy clan as Ava, and says "You'd think she'd be fine with it". Phoebe says "it's one thing to know, it's another thing to actually see it." Eve and Ava are two totally different people. They look similar and they both belong to the Nicolae Gypsy Clan, but that's it. Eve knows they helped save her clan somehow, but has never seen, and may not even know about their powers.

Nymphs Just Wanna Have Fun - S5-E19

Corrected entry: When Paige rearranges the kitchen Piper asks what was wrong with the old system that had worked for the last five years. But when Piper became a neat freak in episode 5-13, 'House Call', she alphabetised all the ingredients in the kitchen, which was not five years before.

Correction: When Piper was referring to the old system, she was talking about the disorderly system that they had before. Not the alphabetized system, which they probably abandoned after the spell wore off in House's Call.

Sympathy for the Demon - S5-E7

Corrected entry: There are many references in this episode to Phoebe using a power-stripping potion on Cole. But it wasn't Phoebe who used the potion on Cole; it was Emma, the fiancée of one of his victims. (00:15:15 - 00:16:25)


Correction: Since Phoebe tricked Emma into using the power-stripping potion on Cole by allowing her to think it was a potion to vanquish him, it can be accurately stated that Phoebe was the one who stripped Cole of his powers.

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Corrected entry: Paige realises at the end that time went on in her own dimension at the same time as it went on in the alternate reality, and Piper calmly comments "Oh there you are. We were wondering" or words to that effect. Paige had been gone over a day and Leo wouldn't have been able to sense her across dimensions. Weren't Phoebe or Piper the least bit worried about her? (00:40:40)


Correction: At this time Paige is wanting space from the sisters so there was no reason for them or Leo to look for her. It was like that when Paige and Phoebe moved out - they did not see each other every day.

Sympathy for the Demon - S5-E7

Corrected entry: When Barbas posing as Leo walks down with Piper, she sees a memory of her as a child. When "Leo" asks what she sees she says "It's okay, I remember this". Little her in the memory was running down the stairs with a toy telling her grams that she loves it. Then her father Victor approaches and gives little Piper a hug, a demon magically appears and attacks them, little Piper screams and Victor protects her while grams says a spell. How can Piper says she remembers this if they never knew about magic at the time?


Correction: Grams has already been shown to have the power to erase memories. For example in That 70's Episode, Grams made it so that little Andy wouldn't remember being frozen by little Piper. That means that she could have made Piper not remember the demon.

The Eyes Have It - S5-E6

Corrected entry: When Phoebe had her premonition of Lydia being attacked by Cree, why didn't she immediately warn her? Lydia is a Gypsy high priestess, which Phoebe knows because she just saw Lydia perform a religious ceremony, and she also knows from the previous events in the episode that Gypsy elders are aware of Wiccan magic. But instead she said nothing and waited to talk to her sisters before doing anything about the premonition. So although they were able to save Lydia, she wound up being needlessly attacked and injured.


Correction: This was a decision made by the character of Phoebe, not a mistake made by the writers.


The Eyes Have It - S5-E6

Corrected entry: The sisters act as though they have never heard of the evil eye before; but in episode 1-2 'I've Got You Under My Skin' the demon Javna invokes the power of the evil eye to steal youth from women.

Correction: Javna is the Charmed Ones' second vanquish, so it isn't all that unreasonable to assume they didn't know (or remember) that Javna's power was "the evil eye" since they were so new to the craft. They used the Hand of Fatima to vanquish him, and no "evil eye" was mentioned in 1-2 "I've Got You Under My Skin."


The Importance of Being Phoebe - S5-E11

Corrected entry: When Cole and Kaya are taunting Piper and Paige about the fact that they now own the manor, they hold the deeds out in front of them laughing for a good 5 seconds. Did they, and more importantly did Paige herself, forget that she can orb things to her? She could easily have summoned the deeds and orbed out of the house before Cole could stop her. (00:33:35)


Correction: Even if Paige orbed the paperwork to herself, it wouldn't have mattered. It wasn't the physical possession of the papers that mattered, it was the legal possession that Cole got when they used them as collateral.

Season 5 generally

Corrected entry: All through the first 12 episodes of season 5, Phoebe keeps trying to convince Cole that his powers are evil and therefor he is evil too. But in ep. 4:12 "Lost and Bound", (3rd act) Piper firmly tells the firestarter, "No, but that's not how powers work. They're not good or bad by themselves, it's how we use them."

Correction: Numerous possible explanations: 1. Phoebe and Piper disagree about how 'powers' work. 2. One of them was lying, for whatever reason. 3. One of them was wrong.

Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Corrected entry: When Paige casts the truth spell on Nate, Nate just starts telling her the truth about everything like how he's married and has kids BUT when Prue cast the truth spell a question had to be asked in order for the truth to be told.

Correction: When Paige firsts cast the spell she tells Nate that she is a witch and asks how would he feel about it. She then orbs to convince him she is a witch and she asks him again. Thats when he says, "I have to tell my wife about this" and she asks, "You're married?" to which he responds yes and adds he has children as well.

House Call - S5-E13

Corrected entry: When Piper made the house vanish, there were steps on the right of the house, but there's not supposed to be any steps there.

Correction: If you look at the right side of the front of the house their are stairs that lead up too another room.

A Witch in Time - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In this episode when Phoebe and Piper have left the car to go and find Miles (to stop him dying), the second time after past Piper has warned present Piper to go right not left, Phoebe's shoes change from what appear to be black boots or high-heels to flat beige knee length boots.

Correction: Duplicate Entry - the other one explained it better.

Sam I Am - S5-E9

Corrected entry: In this episode Paige is assigned Sam, her father and Patty Halliwell's former whitelighter, as a charge but in the episode P3 H20 we find out that Sam clipped his wings - "Piper: Sam was mum's whitelighter?" "Leo: Emphasis on was. When your mom died, Sam clipped his wings. He's mortal now, but once, yeah he was a whitelighter. He looked after your mother"

Correction: He states in this episode that after he died for the second time after being made mortal, the elders made him a whitelighter again.


Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Corrected entry: When Prue initially used the truth spell in episode 1-8, 'The Truth is out There and it Hurts', it meant anyone she asked a question had to tell the truth, and she also had to answer truthfully if she was asked anything. When Paige cast it though it only worked on Nate. If the spell had worked the same way as it had on Prue then Paige would not have had to cast it again on Grams at the end if the episode.

Correction: Paige has spent most of the season out of work and putting all her energy into studying magic full-time at this point. She's had plenty of time to revise and perfect the spell.
