  • The sisters grow apart some more, Leo's students are smarter than Piper, and Christy fails miserably at making Billie hate the Charmed ones. Not a good start to Charmed's final 6 episodes.

  • Christie is a babbling idiot no more. Phoebe and Coop take a stroll down memory lane, and Piper tries to fill Leo's shoes.

  • This will be more of a nostalgia story than a review, FYI. Basic review: fun episode--who doesn't love a flashback episode?--without too much on the heavy.

  • Quotes (8)

    • (Piper just finished making a vanquishing potion for the Noxens) Piper: Ok. So, the next time the Noxens attack, we'll be ready for them. Ryan: What about the whole "unvanquishable" thing? Piper: Well, you know, Magic School rules don't always apply to the outside world. It's kind of like Vegas!

    • Christy: I don't have any stuff. Piper: Well, you will have stuff, every girl has stuff, we have tons of stuff, you can have some of our stuff, you gotta wear somethin'.

    • Coop: You can't keep running from love... Phoebe: I'm not running, I'm walking.

    • Ryan: Let's get out of here. Piper: Wait, you can't go anywhere. You can barely walk. Ryan: Look, if we don't keep moving, we're dead. Leo was the only one who knew how to stop them and he's not here. Piper: Okay well, what am I? Chop liver? Listen, Leo is my husband and if he sent you here for help, then help is what you're gonna get.

    • Paige: I guess I better go. Don't wanna lose my honeymoon. You sure you're gonna be okay without me? Piper: Well, we won't know until you're gone. (Paige gives her a look) I'm kidding!

    Trivia (17)

    • When viewing her past life from the 1920s, Phoebe tells Coop her boyfriend Anton was a demon. However, in the original episode Pardon My Past, Anton was a warlock.

    • In the season 7 episode The Seven Year Witch, Wyatt uses his powers to heal Piper, yet the sisters and Billie still consider calling Paige back from her honeymoon as if she's the only one around with healing powers. Piper explains in the episode Scry Hard that this is because she "doesn't want to keep forcing Wyatt to tap into his powers before he's ready."

    • TRIVIA: When Paige orbs in from her honeymoon she is holding a drink and says not to worry it is virgin. This is a consistent fact since her first appearance in the episode Charmed Again (1), Paige while never directly saying she was a "recovering alcoholic", stopped drinking in her early 20's due to it being a problem and continued to abstain throughout the show.

    • At the end of the episode Rewitched, Phoebe visits Dex while he is watching the interview with Agent Murphy. Strangely enough, when Coop takes Phoebe to the exact same moment in this episode, Dex is watching a news report on the Golden Gate bridge.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Coop says Phoebe he will show her why "it's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all". In the season 2 episode Heartbreak City, Phoebe asks Cupid not to say to her exactly that.
