Charmed

Pardon My Past - S2-E14

Plot hole: According to the family tree viewed in this episode, Penny "Grams" Halliwell was born on 6/23/1937, and her daughter Patty, the Charmed Ones' mother, was born on 4/5/1950. In addition, Patty's father was born in 1930. So, according to this, Penny gave birth to her daughter at age 12, while married to a 20 year old man. That's quite outlandish, to say the least.

Suggested correction: In season 3 episode 9 'Coyote Piper' Piper has her 10th anniversary reunion for her high school class, which means she is 28 and therefore born in 1972. So her mother was actually 22 at the time.

The OP was referring to Penny (Grams) giving birth to Patty, not Patty giving birth to Prue, Piper, Phoebe or Paige. Penny was born in 1937 and had Patty in 1950, making Penny 12 at the time. It's likely just an oversight on the part of the writers.

A Knight to Remember - S4-E6

Plot hole: Piper is initially skeptical at Phoebe's theory that the Evil Enchantress could be Paige in a past life, because Paige lacks the Enchantress' ability to summon the elements. However, Piper knows that in Phoebe's past life she had a pyrokinetic power, which she does not have in the present.

New this month Suggested correction: This is not a correction, more of an observation that goes with this plot hole. In season 2 episode 14 'Pardon my past' Leo explains to the sisters that Phoebe was taken away her active powers, because her past self had used them for evil, but yet the Enchantress does the same with her powers, and Paige still has active powers. It took two years for Phoebe fighting as a good witch to actually gain an active power again, and then it was only levitating. Becoming an empath took seven years. So that doesn't really make sense that Phoebe would be punished for her past self actions and Paige was not.

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.

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

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. But at the end of the episode Necron magically places the shell onto Phoebe and it nearly sucks the life out of her.

Suggested correction: Phoebe had become a mermaid due to the Charmed ones spell, therefore making her immortal for the time being.

Necromancing the Stone - S5-E21

Deliberate mistake: 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?

Suggested correction: Answering this posts question...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.

Charmed Again (1) - S4-E1

Plot hole: Phoebe says Piper and Prue were able to defeat Shax without the power of three and Piper's response is it was because "Prue was the strongest." Piper would have no recollection of this event as Tempus reversed time bringing Piper back from the dead in the timeline that she was shot in. The time reversal affected everyone's memory except Phoebe, Leo and Cole who were in the Underworld.

New this month Suggested correction: I believe that Piper simply meant that statement in general and not because she actually remembered the event. She also doesn't say anything else about the timeline that was altered. In Piper's mind, Prue had always been the strongest of the three of them, because she was also the oldest. Piper and Phoebe use that statement several times throughout the series.

When Bad Warlocks Go Good - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Prue finds Brendan, as a warlock, over the corpse of Father Austin. He runs away and she pursues him. He insists that he "didn't hurt Father Austin. [He] found him like that." Prue counters, "Before or after you turned into a warlock?" His response is, "After. When I saw what [my brothers] did to him, I was crazed. The rage turned me into a warlock." So doesn't that mean that he found Father Austin before he turned into a warlock, not after?

Suggested correction: He said after because Brendan has always been a warlock. He was born that way.

Witch Trial - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Right after Grams says "I Love You" to the sisters at the end, we see a close-up of Phoebe. In this shot, you can see the tear in Prue's shirt, but immediately afterwards, there is a shot of Prue where it appears to be sewn or something.

Suggested correction: It is just the way her hands/arms are placed in the next shot. It closes the gap/tear but it is not sewn.

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.

New this month 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.

Reckless Abandon - S2-E11

Plot hole: In this episode the Charmed ones state that the ghost can only be vanquished by a potion on the ghost's bones (grave) or if the haunted object is destroyed. But in episode 1-20, "The Power of Two", Prue has to die herself to be able to vanquish the ghost with a spell, and we learn then that this is the only way to vanquish ghosts.

Suggested correction: A ghost can also vanquish a ghost using a spell as another means in addition to pouring a potion over its bones/grave.

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.

Bishop73

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.

Scry Hard - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: Piper and Leo both make comments about Leo's inability to self-heal now that he's a mortal. But in previous episodes, it's mentioned that Leo wasn't allowed to use his powers to heal himself.

Suggested correction: Leo was a white-lighter before and he wasn't able to heal himself when he was hit by a dark-lighter's arrow. However, injuries such as stab wounds would heal as seen in "Saving Private Leo."
