29 corrected entries in season 5

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.

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.

MeganP23

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.

wolfman1378

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

DavidK93

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?

xx:xx:xx

Shay

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?

RandShami

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.

DavidK93

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.

xx:xx:xx

Shay

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.

Captain Defenestrator

A Witch in Time - S5-E8

Corrected entry: Even though Paige's witch-powers were removed with the disempowering spell she would still have been able to orb as that is a white-lighter power.

Correction: The spell removes any powers a witch possesses. Paige is half-whitelighter/half-witch, so the spell could take her orbing ability, since that is a power possessed by a witch.

Captain Defenestrator

A Witch in Time - S5-E8

Corrected entry: The Baccarra demon uses the same spell that Tuatha used 'That Old Black Magic', but Tuatha had to have one heart for each witch she disempowered and the Baccarra apparently disempowered them all with one heart.

Correction: Baccara tells his past self that the spell is from the future, so it's likely that the spell has been "improved on" so that only one heart is now needed.

Captain Defenestrator

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Corrected entry: In "Coyote Piper" when Phoebe is researching Cole's ancestry the woman at the historical society says "Cole Turner. Born in 1885." He has his 100th birthday in this episode which first aired on 19/1/2003, making him 118.

Correction: In this episode the demons are all celebrating his hundredth birthday and when Cole comments on how the cake is a very nice cake the designer of the cake says "Thank you, my liege, although I must admit, I thought you were actually 117." So, Cole's real age is known but the demons don't want to insult him.

A Witch in Time - S5-E8

Corrected entry: Leo should have known that Paige and Phoebe were dead as soon as it happened. Usually when one of his charges is hurt he feels the pain, but he was surprised to see their ashes and did not know what had happened, and he only orbed in when Piper called him.

Correction: Piper calls before Phoebe and Paige get turned into ash. She calls out of fear not because her sisters were dead.

The Eyes Have It - S5-E6

Corrected entry: When Orin shoots Piper with the power of the Evil Eye, Leo has to heal her, but she has been self-healing since the beginning of the series.

Correction: The only time Piper was able to self heal was when she was pregnant with Wyatt her first son.

The Eyes Have It - S5-E6

Corrected entry: In 'The Eyes Have It' Phoebe's vision shows her that Piper's explosion power doesn't work on Orin, so why did Piper later try to blow him up? Wouldn't it have made more sense to have Piper try to freeze him, or be ready with a knife for Paige to orb into him? Why try a method of attack they had already seen fail?

Shay

Correction: It is Piper's first instinct, ie her natural impulse, to try and blow him up, even though she knew it would not work. It does not make this a mistake.

Y Tu Mummy Tambien - S5-E10

Corrected entry: When Piper changes out of her maternity clothes, she does so in her bedroom closet. But that's the same closet that she and Leo converted into a nursery at the beginning of the season. There is no explanation of why and how it was once again filled with clothes.

DavidK93

Correction: This is not the same closet. Piper and Leo have two closets in their room. The one that is now a nursery must have been Leo's, because he takes his clothes from a dresser in this scene.

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

Corrected entry: Leo tells Piper that "there was no one there to finish [her baby book] after [her] mother died," and that's why every page from "The Sixth Year" onwards is blank. But Piper and her sisters were raised by Grams after Patty died. Why wouldn't Grams have continued filling in the baby book?

DavidK93

Correction: Maybe seeing the baby book that Patti started and never got a chance to finish was too painful for her. It's not really a mistake, it's impossible to predict how grief will affect people.

Shay

Witches in Tights - S5-E5

Corrected entry: After the girls realize that removing their masks alters their way of thinking, The Aggressor dashes in and uses his power to throw Phoebe across the room. After this, Piper runs to Phoebe but screams "Lyssie" (the nickname the cast and crew uses for Alyssa Milano)

Correction: Actually, she says Phoebe.

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Corrected entry: How does Paige know so much? First of all she knows that Cole is behind it all, though any number of demons have the ability to create temporal folds and as far as she knew Cole wasn't one of them. Second she knows that Phoebe is unhappy with Cole, just from talking to her for a few seconds. In fact, when she mentioned that she could help Phoebe get rid of him Phoebe threw her out. She seems to realise what's going on simply to save on exposition.

Shay

Correction: Paige had been suspicious of Cole for a long time at this point. Her assumptions just happened to be correct. Phoebe threw Paige out because Phoebe said she stayed with Cole so that he wouldn't kill Piper; she probably didn't want Cole to hear Paige and think Phoebe was conspiring against him and thus go ahead and kill Piper.

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Corrected entry: Cole enters his apartment on the first night and wishes himself a happy birthday. The next night is the night when Paige is at P3 and he turns the world into his alternate reality, then the next day is when Paige goes to the manor and finds his birthday in full swing. Even with the minor possibility that it was after midnight on the first night, his party is still a day late.

Shay

Correction: I have often had parties for my birthday on days other than my birthday.

shortdanzr

House Call - S5-E13

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, at P3, a tray falls onto the floor and Leo starts to tease Piper about it. A few moments later, when he jokingly runs off, Piper actually yells "Brian" instead of "Leo", which is really Brian Krause's character's name.

Correction: Actually, Piper throws the magazine to Leo and yells "Run", not Brian.
