Trivia (26)

  • In this episode, Piper pulls the darklighter's arrow out of Leo. The first time he is shot by the arrow, Prue must use her powers to pull it out because Leo tells them they cannot touch the arrow because of the poison.

  • TRIVIA: This is the second time that Leo is shot with a darklighter's arrow, the first time being in the Season 1 episode Love Hurts. This time he is healed by Paige, who was channeling his own healing power, when last time it was Piper, after she switched powers with him.

  • TRIVIA: The Seer said she helped the Charmed Ones for her own future. This seems to be foreshadowing her manipulation of Cole and Phoebe in future episodes in order to intricately have herself become The Source in the episode Womb Raider.

  • TRIVIA: The spell the girls use to vanquish the Source is - "Prudence, Patricia, Penelope, Melinda, Astrid, Helena, Laura and Grace, Halliwell witches stand strong beside us Vanquish this evil from time and space". They will also use this spell to vanquish Cole (who has become the Source) in the later season 4 episode called Long Live the Queen.

  • TRIVIA: The Source calls the Hollow "the ultimate power", but later, in season 8, the powers of Billie & Christy will be called the same thing.

  • TRIVIA: This is the second time that Pandora's box has been mentioned, and it is mentioned again in a later episode.

  • When Leo came back and everyone was in the kitchen, Piper told him that the Source took her power. Leo already knew that because he was in the attic when Piper showed him that she didn't have her powers.

  • TRIVIA: This is the fourth time that the sisters have lost their powers.
