Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Grams soon thereafter says that the Necromancer has had "almost seventy years" to regain his strength.

Centennial Charmed - S5-E12

Plot hole: In 'Centennial Charmed' Paige orbs to another reality where she loses all her powers. Leo tells her the this is because she was never called as a witch in this world, but Paige had most of her powers before she was called because of her whitelighter blood, so she should retain these. Leo says that Paige has assumed the life of this reality's Paige, but then adds "...or at least the life she would have lived if she hadn't been killed". If alternate Paige had lived she would have had Whitelighter powers, even if she didn't know about them, so our Paige should also have them. (00:28:00)

Plot hole: The Sea Hag says at the start of the episode to Mylie that as an immortal being, only she can place the augur shell over her heart to give up her life.

Sympathy for the Demon - S5-E7

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

Plot hole: In this episode, when Piper and Leo are preparing the nursery, Leo tells Piper he has been watching her her whole life, and she says "That's a little bit creepy". she acts as if she doesn't already know this but in episode 2-22 'Be Careful What You Witch For' Piper says, "You have been watching me my entire life". (00:04:45)

Cat House - S5-E18

In "Just Harried" we see the cake fall and the Statue skid on the floor, but in the actual episode it was caught under the cake.

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

Plot hole: Paige says she cannot wait to tell the local witch doctors that Borneo demons are not impervious to magical powers. But in the episode 'House Call', they act as if they have never heard of witch doctors, let alone dealt with them. (00:01:45)

The Day The Magic Died - S5-E15

Plot hole: In the episode "The Day Magic Died," Phoebe and Paige first find out that magic is down when Paige tries to orb the unicorn. But, when she tries to orb it, she makes a scrunched up face that would suggest that she knew magic was out and she hoped that she could orb.

The Importance of Being Phoebe - S5-E11

Plot hole: Close to the end of the episode, when Phoebe is going into the house pretending to be Kaia pretending to be Phoebe, Paige and Piper tell Phoebe that the demon twirls her hair, a lot. Cole also brought this to our attention much earlier in the episode. Phoebe says she's got it, and goes into the house. Paige had indicated that the problem with getting into the house was that there's a "whole load of demons" and a force field. Phoebe was to impersonate Kaia in order to get past all of these defenses. But throughout the whole time she's in the house, Phoebe never twirls her hair. (00:38:40)

Suggested correction: That's true, but she had already proved herself to be Kaia to the demon actually guarding the door. So it's possible that the demons inside the house didn't pay that much attention to her actions after she had already been given the 'ok' by their guard.

Cat House - S5-E18

Plot hole: The demon is killed when Leo proposes, hence before the wedding. So how is he able to break the cake topper?

Suggested correction: The demon was able to break the topper because the demon/Paige/Phoebe were being moved in the memories in the order Piper and Leo talked about their past. Since they talked about the wedding before the proposal, the demon was able to break the topper.
