    • (After seeing the sisters and Leo in their new identities walking away from the house) Darryl (laughing): Well all right, all right.

    • Zankou (of the Nexus): It's just sheer, unadulterated power. The kind the Charmed Ones have been harboring for far too long. Now it's my turn to play. Kahn: What'll be your first moveā€”once you possess it, I mean? Zankou: Oh, I don't know. I'll have full access to the Book of Shadows, of course, which means I'll have ultimate power. (Laughs.) I hope I don't get bored.

    • Zankou (about the Charmed Ones): You can't take them head on. It doesn't work. That's how demons die. Not this demon, not this time.

    • Sheridan (to Keyes, about the Charmed Ones): Look, you can do whatever you want with them afterwards. You can expose them, hide them, dissect them, I don't care. I just want to be the one to bust them.

    • Zankou (after he absorbed the Nexus): You can't stop me now. Paige: Oh yeah. Piper: Watch us.

    Trivia (37)

    • TRIVIA: The first demon to die in this episode is the 500th evil being to be vanquished on the show.

    • TRIVIA: During Season 7, a total of 119 evil beings are vanquished, comprising 98 demons, 13 vampires, 6 pirates, 1 half-demon and 1 mortal. Of these, 58 are vanquished by the Charmed Ones, 21 by Leo and 9 by Zankou.

    • TRIVIA: This is the final episode to feature the exterior of the Manor with the Halliwell women. As of Season 8 only stock shots are used.

    • Zankou has used Phoebe's power to anticipate that they were going to the Bat Queen demon for help. Since he's so sure that the power will mean he can be ahead of them in their game, how come they manage to trick him so many times when they astrally project? Surely the power would have made him aware of what he was dealing with, thereby giving him the perfect opportunity to kill them whilst they're lying on the sofa unconscious!

    • After there is a huge explosion in the basement, the police go straight into the house and seem only to be checking that the air is okay. They would have no way of knowing if the building itself were safe or not, given that the whole foundations could have been compromised. The last thing they would have done is to send hordes of police into a possibly unsafe structure. For that matter, how come an explosion that large takes out some of the support beams of the room, but leaves the stairs intact?

    Allusions (2)

    • Zankou: Patience is a virtue.
      This line was said in the film The Mummy by Rachel Weisz. This movie also starred Oded Fehr who plays Zankou in this episode.

    • Title: Something Wicca This Way Goes
      This is a reference to the pilot episode "Something Wicca This Way Comes". That was when they started their lives as witches and this was meant as the end, since it was originally written as the series finale, if the network hadn't picked up the series for another season. Also, like the original episode it also made a reference to a Shakespearian quote "Something wicked this way comes".
