Quotes (25)

  • Piper: (regarding Prue) How is she? Is she okay? Grams: I'm not allowed to tell you. Piper: What? Why? Grams: For the same reason you're not allowed to see her. At least not for a while anyway. Seeing Prue now, speaking to her. Keeps her alive for you. It keeps you from moving on with your life.

  • Piper: We've cheated death before, I don't see how this time could be any different!

  • Leo: Are you sure she orbed? Are you sure that it wasn't something else? Phoebe: Leo, she disappeared. Bright white, shiny thingies came, and then she reappeared. What else could it be? Leo: It just doesn't make any sense. Cole: Why not? Leo: Because why would Shax want to kill a Whitelighter? Cole: Maybe he doesn't know she's a Whitelighter. Leo: Right, the Source sends out his personal assassin, but doesn't know who he's after? Phoebe: Is it possible that she didn't know that she was a Whitelighter? Leo: No. Why? Cole: Because she acted as if she didn't. She acted just as surprised as we were when she orbed out. Leo: Well, that doesn't make any sense either. Phoebe: Okay, why don't you go up and ask the Elders what does make sense, so we don't go risking our lives again?

  • Phoebe (after blowing up Shax): It's not enough, Shax was just the messenger. We need to get The Source. Paige: The Source of what? (Phoebe groans) Piper: Of all evil. Paige: What have you guys turned me into? (Paige walks out of the attic)

  • Piper: In this night and in this hour, I call upon the ancient power. Bring back my sister. Bring back the Power of Three!

  • (After Darryl hits Cortez over the head with his gun) Darryl: I think you've been through enough today, huh? Piper: Thank you, Darryl. Phoebe: Darryl, go, get outta here. We don't want you to take the fall for this. Darryl: No, it's okay. Phoebe: No, it's not. This is our problem, he wants to expose us, not you. Let us take care of this. Please? Darryl: If you need me, you know where to find me, huh?

  • Piper: Wait. Are you accusing us? Cortez: I've just begun to accuse you, lady! Grams: All right, fine. You caught us. Congratulations. So what are you gonna do about it? Shoot us? Phoebe: Easy, Grams. Not all of us are dead, remember?

  • Piper (referring to Prue): She's been there my whole life. I've always had a big sister. And I don't know how to live without one...

Notes (5)

  • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Znovu čerodějky (Sorceresses Again) France: Les liens du sang (Blood links) Italy: Il ritorno del trio (The return of the Charmed Ones) Germany: Die neue Macht der Drei (The new power of three)

  • This episode scored 6.0 million viewers.

  • Actor Bennett Guillory appears for the first time as The Source. He is the second actor to appear as the original Source (in demonic form). Not only did he appear in the most episodes (three, actor Michael Bailey Smith appeared in one and Peter Woodward in two) but the only actor to not return in another role(Smith played Belthezor, Shax and a Grimlock and Woodward played Aku in the seventh season).

  • Yancey Arias (Det. Cortez) has previously appeared in an uncredited cameo in the season 1 episode The Wendigo, as a bidder during an auction at Bucklands.

  • In this episode, a weird camera effect is shown that doesn't happen in any other episodes. In some scenes (like the scene in the hall after the funeral, the scene where Darryl is shown for the first time in the episode, the scene in the kitchen, etc.) the image is kinda turned to one side. The camera is not right, and it's filmed spun to the side. The whole effect is there to transmit that things are not right as they should but they are "turned" as if things were going to fall anytime.

Trivia (22)

  • At 3:24, when Paige is reading Prue's obituary, you can see at the very bottom of the newspaper that her name is misspelled as "Pru".

  • In the scene where Paige and Shane are in P3 talking, we see her drawing a circle on the napkin. When the waitress brings their drinks, she makes 2 more small marks with the pen. In the rest of the scene, she is talking to Shane explaining how she feels connected to the sisters, clearly not drawing on the napkin anymore. At the end of the scene when Paige and Shane get up to leave, the camera zooms in on the napkin and shows that she has drawn the Triquetra (the power of three symbol).

  • TRIVIA: It's stated in this episode that Paige does not drink due to it having been problematic in the past. This is one of a few facts that will remain consistent throughout the show and will be mentioned again several times from this episode up until almost the final episode.

  • If Shax is suppose to be the Source's personal assassin, then why didn't the Source send him after Cole when he killed the Triad? Why would the Source send some random bounty hunter after Belthezor, a demon who was supposedly one of the most powerful in the underworld? Yet send Shax, a demon who was of equal strength (if not stronger) after a mortal doctor (in the episode All Hell Breaks Loose) and Paige, a witch who had not yet gained her powers? Wouldn't it have made more sense the other way?

  • When Piper summons Grams to ask her why the Source thinks the Charmed Ones can be reconstituted, and Patty comes in to tell them she was the one who swore Grams to secrecy, Patty and Grams give off shadows. Not only on each other but on themselves when they put their arms up and their sleeves put shadows on themselves. Since they are ghosts and see-through how can they give off shadows?

  • TRIVIA: The "lost witch" spell, cast by Piper in the opening scene, was also used in the season 2 episode How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans. That time, however, it was used to strip the Charmed Ones of their powers rather than to find a lost witch.

  • TRIVIA: The song played after the opening credits is I Miss You by Stevie Nicks.

  • After the funeral Phoebe, Leo & Cole talking to Paige near the stairs and Piper appears. Piper goes upstairs and Phoebe says "She needs to be alone". Suddenly after that they are in the hall but they had not actually moved. They have changed one room for another without moving themselves. Phoebe is next to the sofa, and then suddenly she is next to the lamp and the wall in the hall instead.
