  • Just meh.

    4.5
    So I've never liked this episode. I understand them trying to fast-track Paige, having a past-life, getting her own episode etc etc but I feel this episode highlights her flaws too much and makes it really easy to dislike her.



    Firstly, I don't like how she remembers so much of her past life, almost perfectly, down to the spell. And if the evil enchantress is her past life, it means it's her ancestor/part of her blood line so by stopping her having the child isn't she effectively wiping out her family line..



    I agree that the sisters shouldn't have just burst in, it's really not like you couldn't have knocked and waited. But once Paige was at the manor why couldn't she just vanquish the demon with them there, she came to read the book, is rude to them and then just leaves them with a DEMON and the prince. I don't care if he's not the source, a demon is a demon. I found her to be extremely selfish, self righteous, rude, inconsiderate and frankly ignorant in this episode.



    But I do agree, I'm surprised they let this new person move into Prue's room. While I get it may be hard for them to move into the room themselves I was surprised they let her do it but I was glad she moved in eventually and that they didn't keep it too long nor do it straight away.



    I thought the past life was stupidly done though, the powers were OTT and that Paige could just tap into it with no effort (she can't even control her OWN powers) and the prince was kind of stupid. Another thing Paige was annoying about, just leaving him in the middle of a situation. You could've exposed magic then too. You summon this guy by stupidly reading from the book, then leave him for Piper and Phoebe to clean up because you ceebs making an effort to handle it.



    But I did like the conversation about Paige moving in. It was well acted and written. But when they asked Paige I thought she was acting like a 15 year old. She hardly seems like a 25 year old.



    I thought Glen was quite pathetic and at 25 you shouldn't be just disappearing and leaving a job hanging etc. You should be taking control of your life, getting into the workplace. Holidays are a scheduled thing. Unless you make money by travelling.



    That pink top she was wearing though! Ew. But her attitude with the whole 'out out out out out' thing, I get feeling completely angry but they're there now and need to deal with it. But she kicks them out, goes to their house to then continue ignoring them! Urgh. Sorry repeating myself.



    And I found her not wanting to leave work to deal with the demon AND the prince was completely selfish. And they shouldn't need to be nice to her to make her deal with HER problem. Moving in with them was completely different to the demon and prince. But she makes it seem like the only way the demon is able to be vanquished is if she moves in and because she doesn't want to she can't get rid of the demon. The sword would not have hurt the demon and what it took being attacked to all of a sudden be head over heels?



    And the whole "I'll bind her by myself". They are the charmed ones, it has nothing to do with being sisters. The witch thing, as Piper said, is to do with all of them so even if they hate each other, they should deal with this as the three of them. Hell Piper could probably have froze her and saved them this whole thing. And what was with throwing the potion? Yeah I'll just hope that you can't simply dodge it let alone destroy it with the amount of time you have in that long distance throw.



    So when Phoebe's past life shacks up with a demon and is under his spell, she gets her fire power taken away. But Paige's past life wants to destroy good magic and ruin people's lives but her powers don't get taken away? Yeahh nice continuity there.



    Lastly, I thought Paige's acting as the enchantress was quite bad, and that 'woe is me' pout she does will become a thing for her.moreless
  • A Knight to Remember

    9.0
    A Knight to Remember was a superb episode of Charmed and I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of character development for Paige as Phoebe and Piper asked her to move into the Manor. The story was fun and a bit quirky which I liked. It was great to see Paige's past life as an evil enchantress. Every thing works out in the end as usual. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!moreless
  • The Knight of the Rose...

    8.0
    Charmed crosses another fairy tale story with a past life of Paige's and gets mostly pleasing results.



    I generally like medieval stories, and I found this largely pretty entertaining. I didn't like that Paige acted self-centered to the forfeiture of intelligence for much of the episode. Her sisters are being attacked by a shocker demon, which they need her to get rid of, but she is too concerned with her own independence to help out. I love me some Paige, but self-centered decision making is pretty much a staple of her character. Sort of curious when you couple that with the fact that she is also selflessly courageous nearly to a fault. With the way she was acting, I was glad to see an accident create a magical mess for her, including a love-sick knight that follows her around like Dan used to slink after Piper. Of course, Paige was an evil sorceress in a former life or an alternate universe, whichever it is. It doesn't really matter, just follow along. And of course, Sorceress Paige has a plethora of cool powers. I thought Rose McGowan made an excellent evil sorceress; I especially liked when she threw Paige around a little.



    This episode ends with a run of good scenes, starting when Paige learns her lesson and gets the pep talk from Leo, the whitelighter of many pep talks. Paige then goes and faces off with her evil self while Leo gets a hand-to-hand combat scene that gets Piper excited. Haha... great stuff. This all leads to a very satisfying ending where Paige gets situated in the manor where she belongs. So, if all's well that ends well, then this is just fine.moreless
  • It's time for Paige to get into some trouble again.

    6.0
    A Knight from the Medieveil era has been placed under a nasty spell by an equally nasty sourceress. When Paige accidently summons the enchanted Knight to the future, he mistakenly believes her to be the love of his life and, it seems will not take "no" for an answer, nor will he believe her when she tries to explain to him that he is wrong and that she is not who he thinks she is. Perhaps this will teach Paige to stop playing with magic that she knows nothing about? After all, it will only get her into trouble.



    I think the relative mediocrity of this season is being shown a little too regularly here and I feel that it's mostly due to the absence of Shannen Doherty and audiences trying to accept Rose McGowan while Rose herself does her best to fit in. Let's hope it all sorts itself out in time.moreless
  • Good Knight..

    6.5
    An episode so light you'd need to tether it to a tree in case it floated away, 'A Knight to Remember' is the show having fun. While it's certainly candy floss viewing, even for this series' usual standards, there's an undeniable charm (excuse the pun) to be found here and as a means of getting all of sisters under one roof, it works. There's even a brief moment at the beginning where Piper sulks in Prue's room to Mazzy Star's 'Into Dust' that will surely tug on the heartstrings of long-term fans. It's another Paige-centric episode, one that gives Rose plenty to do, and I gotta say she pulled off the Enchantress very well. I wonder, though, did they alter her voice or was that all McGowan?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (15)

    • Phoebe and Piper cannot use any electricity in the manor to avoid attacks by the shocker demon. However, after the shocker demon attacks from the VCR, Phoebe goes into the kitchen and gets a bottle of water from the fridge, which has condensation on it- it is obviously cold, so the fridge is obviously on - using electricity.

    • When the Enchantress appears in the Manor why didn't Piper just freeze her? Since she's evil it would have worked on her.

    • When the Enchantress comes to the present she shares the identical appearance of Paige. However, in the season 2 episode Pardon my Past, it is said that the only reason that Phoebe recognized Piper and Prue's past lives was because they recognized each others spirits. This obviously is not the case here though since when Paige's boss and the Prince can not tell them apart!

    • If Paige was in fact the Evil Enchantress in a previous life and the events had happened as she remembered in her fairy tale, then why wasn't the world filled with dark magic? According to Paige's fairy tale the evil enchantress wound up with and had the prince's child before killing him, so why wasn't the world filled with evil like Piper said would happen if they didn't stop her?

    • TRIVIA: Paige is the second sister to have an evil past life. Phoebe was the first.

    • Glen said that Paige was 25. This cannot be possible because if she was left at the church in 1977, she would have been 1 year old. If nobody knew about her than how could they have kept her a secret for a year?

    • Piper says that Prue said "The Charmed Ones come first" but throughout the whole show we have never heard Prue say such a thing.

    • TRIVIA: This is one of 4 episodes in season 4 in which Cole does not appear.

    • TRIVIA: Mazzy Stars' song "Into Dust" is played in this episode after the credits.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode it's stated that Paige was the Evil Enchantress in her past life.

    • In the beginning of the episode, Piper is stirring her coffee in a mug that says "God Bless America" on it. Due to recent events of 9/11, the mug was added.

    • TRIVIA: The picture that the Enchantress ripped off the wall says "Paige & Eilish" on it. This is in fact a picture of Rose McGowan with the Charmed costume designer, Eilish, rather than an actual character that works at South Bay Social Services with Paige.

    • TRIVIA: Paige moves into the manor in this episode.

    • The evil enchantress rips the picture of Paige off of the bullletin board and the thumb tack stays in place. When they show the back of the picture there is no rip or even a hole in it.

    • According to Paige's "fairy tale," the witch ends up with the prince. If this is really a past life, didn't the sorceress end up with the prince in the Middle Ages? So why do they have to fix it? Everything was just going the same way it did according to her fairy tale.

      Piper: Phoebe. (to Lady Julia) We're witches and we have the potion that will stop the Enchantress.

      Prince: It doesn't matter. We're meant to conceive an heir, my love.
      Paige: Ugh! Stop saying that!

      Evil Enchantress: Because this is my destiny, not yours.

    • Piper: What do we do, go back to the Middle Ages or the Medieval Ages, or whatever the hell ages that was?

    • Phoebe: Defiant, clever, and independent. Kind of describes Paige, right?
      Piper: As well as stubborn, stubborn, and more stubborn.

    • Paige: You can't be here. You need to leave right now before security comes.
      Prince: I will not leave until you are with child.
      Paige: Okay. A, I always use protection; and B, you're a fairy tale!
      Prince: I won't harm you.
      Paige: Just keep that sword of yours sheathed, pal.

    • Phoebe: But we could do something if we lived together. That's when we're the strongest.
      Paige: Are you two out of your freakin' minds?
      (Paige runs upstairs)
      Piper: Don't people storm out of the house when they're angry?

    • Paige: This better be important.
      Phoebe: I can't use my blow dryer.

    • Piper: Phoebe, we can't just schedule vanquishes. I mean, demons don't fit into the day planner.

    • Leo: What the hell happened here?
      Phoebe: Paige's past life tried to kill us, that's what happened here.
      Leo: What?
      Piper: Yeah, Paige, the evil Enchantress, same soul different lifetime. She came through some magical portal looking for Prince Carjack.
