    Trivia (6)

    • Why were 3 demons sent to distract the sisters? Even without the distraction if the sisters attacked the demons they wouldn't have been able to destroy them without the potion, as when the demons first appeared it took time Leo to get the potion to the girls. The demons could have just shimmer in the basement and took Pirelli for like 5 seconds. Which brings the next question - why two upper-level demons will go to retrieve a mere mortal who is unconscious? There was no need for both Cole and Tarkin to take him and shimmer out with him.

    • Prue tells Phoebe that she saved the Belthezor flesh because in the back of her mind she felt they may need it(implying she never fully trusted Cole)However, that doesn't really make sense since she believed he was dead for the first month and had no reason to be concerned about him attacking them!

    • The piece of "Belthazor flesh" Prue takes from the freezer is supposed to have been there for months yet it is clearly not frozen when she drops it on the table.

    • If Piper can't freeze anything that's not in the same room or area, then how could Frank Perelli be frozen when he was in the car?

    • Piper is surprised when Prue opens the freezer door to reveal the Belthazor flesh, but as she is the cook in the family she should have seen it since it was right in front of the freezer.
