Ordinary Witches - S7-E11

Plot hole: The innocent who gets Piper's powers uses them to freeze Piper and Phoebe. But even though Piper and Phoebe no longer have their unique powers, they are still good witches; they were still able to scry, and we have encountered good witches on the show in the past who had no powers at all. And by the rules of magic within the show, good witches do not freeze.

There's Something About Leo - S7-E9

Plot hole: Kyle holds Phoebe at gunpoint during the entire climax. Piper could have completely defused the situation by simply using her freezing power on Kyle. Instead, she stands helplessly by.

Freaky Phoebe - S7-E19

Plot hole: When Paige and Leo are talking in Leo's office at magic school, Paige compliments Leo for being such a good headmaster. She mentions that after being headmistress for a year, it's harder than it looks. If she became headmistress after they killed Gideon (i.e. when baby Chris is born) and she's been headmistress for a year, that would make Chris at least a year old. Chris is obviously not one year old just yet.

New this month Suggested correction: Seeing as she is working at a school, she probably meant a school year, which only lasts for 10 months and not a whole year. She took over for Gideon after he died, so the school year had already started. And she also argued with the Elders first on even keeping the school open, so the school year was already partly over before she actually became headmistress. So like I stated previously, she probably meant a school year instead of an actual full year.

Cheaper by the Coven - S7-E3

Plot hole: When Grams is summoned for Chris's wiccaning, she reminds Piper of "the talk" they had when she was a teenager, about how important and special being a witch was to Grams and how it would be to the girls someday. But in the first episode, the girls have no inkling they are witches, and when they find out it's passed through the maternal line, they wonder if Patty or Grams was a witch - suggesting that they aren't sure or have no memories of them as witches. I know there was some memory altering at certain points, but why would Grams have a conversation specifically about how great it is to be a witch and then erase that?

Show Ghouls - S7-E15

Plot hole: When Leo tells Piper that he believes he found the demon Sargon in the Book of Shadows (which may be the demon Count Roget made a faustian deal with), Piper looks at it and says that they vanquished this demon five years ago. Which would've meant they vanquished the demon with Prue. When in fact the only demon that happened with was Zahn in season 6 episode 6, "Soul Survivor," and they did that with Paige.

Something Wicca This Way Goes - S7-E22

Plot hole: The sisters are preparing for a big showdown with Zankou and vaguely discussing their plan. They don't outright say it (so as not to give it away) but discuss how they wished they "had learned it sooner" but "Prue was very protective of it." They're discussing astral projection which originally was stated as a Prue-specific power and not one that could be taught. The show ignored the original introduction of the power as developing naturally as one of Prue's powers, and was not an ability that could be learned, just so the episode had a way for the sisters to defeat Zankou.

New this month Suggested correction: In which episode did they say astral projection couldn't be learned? In the series, the sisters aren't the only one to learn to astral project and the series has indicated it is one of the few powers that can be taught. Additionally, others have gained this ability through spells or other means. The monkey injected with Prue's blood could astral project.

New this month Suggested correction: Ok, that might be true in some way, but during the whole series, the sisters have proven that they can basically make a spell or potion for anything, that's why they are the almighty Charmed ones. At some point during the series, they had lost their powers (again) and Piper had made a potion to replicate her blasting power. So it is totally possible that Prue had figured out a way to replicate her natural power of astral projection trough a spell. When the triade first came into the picture, Prue studied the Book all the time and practiced her powers in every way that she could so she could protect her sisters. So it is entirely possible that she found a way to share her power.

Ordinary Witches - S7-E11

Plot hole: When the man and woman receive Piper and Phoebe's powers, the lady freezes the man and Phoebe due to fear, but good witches don't freeze, so if Phoebe froze (which she shouldn't have due to only her active powers lost) then why did the man? If he had Phoebe's powers then he isn't mortal and therefore should not freeze.
