  • Fantastic episode. One of my personal favourites as Phoebe makes a tough choice and Piper struggles with emotional demons of her own.

  • Quotes (22)

    • Cole: This is not a game, Phoebe. You walked through a one-way door. You try to turn around now, they will destroy us. Phoebe: Who, my sisters? Cole: The Underworld. If they think we're working both sides, they will revolt. If they do that, if they unite against us, I promise, we will pray for death. Phoebe: I'm sorry, I didn't… Cole: I get it, Phoebe, better than anyone. I know what you're going through. It'll rip you apart if you let it. Phoebe: How do I not let it? Cole: You make a choice. And you stick to it.

    • Phoebe: Can you do anything about this thunder, because it is making me nuts. Seer: I have no sway over the weather. I do have a friend who works with wind, but she's out of town.

    • Paige: You evil son of a bitch. Piper: Phoebe, get out here and help us, damn it! (Paige puts the crystals in an almost circle when Cole reappears) Piper: Paige. (Cole throws Paige against the wall) Piper: Phoebe, you heard what he said, he's gonna kill us, help us! Phoebe (whispers to herself): Forgive me.

    • (Phoebe comes in and Cole puts out a fireball that he was about to throw at the Charmed Ones) Cole (to Phoebe about his being about to kill her sisters): I'm sorry. It's for the best. Phoebe: I know it is. (kisses him then steps back and puts down a crystal trapping him in a forcefield) I'm sorry too. Cole (looks at the forcefield around him holding him in then at Phoebe): Phoebe, no. No! Phoebe (tearfully): I'm sorry baby. I'm so sorry. Piper: Prudence, Penelope, Patrica, Melinda... (fire appears near Cole's feet) Phoebe (tearfully): Astrid, Helena, Laura and Grace... Cole (to Phoebe): I'll always love you. Paige: Halliwell witches stand strong beside us... Phoebe (sadly): Vanquish this evil... Piper, Phoebe & Paige: From time and space. (Cole is consumed by flames and explodes)

    • Piper: I’m sorry Paige. I don’t know what got into me. It’s one thing when your sister has a husband that you can’t stand. Its another when he’s the source of all evil.

    • TRIVIA: This is not the first time Phoebe has turned evil for love. In her past life she turns evil when she fell in love with the warlock Anton. Only in that life Prue and Piper (then her cousins in their past lives) had to kill her in order to break the alliance.

    • TRIVIA: Cole is vanquished by the Charmed Ones in this episode.

    • When Cole enters as Phoebe is writing the two letters at the end, she scratches her head with her right hand. In the next shot we see her left hand pulling away instead.
