While I see where Phoebe is coming from, the idea of letting someone die should be followed with a LOT of evidence. But her being all "It's all about Cole" is kinda crap to me. Cole gave you a warning and has done nothing else and yet you still condemn and blame him!
I actually liked this episode, and enjoyed the ending. Probably longest boyfriend arc on this show besides Jack and Dan. 2 episodes!
I mean I think it sucks an innocent had to do die, but when it's your time it is your time. And my god what was with the fourth vision. ALL she sees is Cole above her bed but she automatically decides he's there to kill.
Can anyone really blame him for giving up?! (Sorry for the constant Cole rants. I guess you've all gotten what I do and don't like about the situation. Not long now though).
I do agree that I'm surprised magic advanced so much but I guess writing spells takes minutes, and evil has probably been researching how to do this for years so I can see both arguments.
"death wants him, death will get him" "says you" .. really Cole has done nothing murderous at all! God get over yourself.
I thought it was very big of Cole to offer to protect the man the love of his life is shacking up with.
While I've always liked Leo's pep talks I feel they all just changed their minds too suddenly. Like Phoebe at least had a look of realisation on her face, but Paige sat there miserable then all of a sudden was "oh but wait", to me it was just too sudden.
Finally, for such smart bad guys, Bacarra was extremely stupid in not thinking their whitelighter would show up to orb them away. And if he was there from the start probably could've orbed all of them.
