Prudence 'Prue' Halliwell
When Leo first heals Piper and Prue he heals them at the same time. So why couldn't he have saved both of them the second time?
TRIVIA: This episode marks the first and only time Prue ever attacks innocents with her powers. First, there is Alice Hicks (although later she wasn't so innocent) and then there were the people standing in front of the manor after Piper is shot.
TRIVIA: This is the first of two season finales in the shows' eight years that ends in a cliffhanger.
TRIVIA: This is the second time Piper's life is spared at the expense of a loved one when Tempest resets the day. The first time was in the season one finale Deja Vu All Over Again. In that episode, Rodriguez originally kills Piper (as well as Phoebe) when Tempest resets the day hoping that Rodriguez will be able to successfully kill all three sisters, instead it is Andy (Prue's on/off boyriend) who is killed trying to save them.
TRIVIA: During season 3, the Charmed Ones vanquished 22 demons, five trolls, three warlocks, one darklighter, one priestess, one banshee and one life essence. In addition, Cole vanquishes seven demons and one mortal, while three demons and two darklighters vanquish each other - a total of 47 evil beings.
TRIVIA: This is the 8th time one of the sisters dies, but this time it's two of them that die. First Piper and then Prue at the end.
When Prue uses her powers against an innocent - the crazy witch wannabe Alice Hicks - she sets into motion a series of events that culminate in her own death: Alice kills Piper; to save Piper, Phoebe agrees to the Source's demand that she stay in the Underworld while Tempus reverses time; and because Phoebe isn't there to save Prue and Piper when Shax attacks, Prue dies.
When Piper is brought into the emergency room, the red EKG lead is put on her left shoulder area. But when Prue starts removing the EKG leads after Piper has died, the lead is now black (which is the correct lead for that location).
TRIVIA: The song Dream On by Depeche Mode was played in this episode.
If the Cleaners had been assigned to watch the Charmed Ones since they became witches, where were they to clean up this 'little' magical mess?
When Piper was thrown through the wall, her stomach was above the floor, but she landed on her back.
After Prue and Piper are healed, they leave to go fight Shax but they didn't ask Phoebe for the spell. How would they know the spell if they had never heard it before?
TRIVIA: This the third and final death of Prue.She was first killed in the season 1 episode Power of Two and the season 2 finale Be Careful What You Witch For.
Prue has Leo check with the Elders to see if Shax was actually vanquished. Since when do the Elders know if a demon has been vanquished or not? They didn't know that Belthazor wasn't really vanquished earlier that season.
The reporter and cameraman had a very good shot angle of Piper and Prue, as they were in a direct line of vision. After vanquishing Shax, Prue took a good look around to make sure nobody saw them. It's hard to believe that Prue couldn't see the cameraman and reporter who were directly in her line of sight.
The blood mark on Piper's shirt decreases from when she was first shot in the living room, to when Prue puts her in the car to take her to the hospital.
TRIVIA: Carrying on a season ending tradition, at the end of this episode the door of the Halliwell manor was closed, but this time it was by Shax.
TRIVIA: Michael Bailey Smith has now played four characters on Charmed - The Source, Shax, Belthazor, and a Grimlock in the season 3 episode: "All Halliwell's Eve".
TRIVIA: This episode marks the final appearance of Shannen Doherty as Prue Halliwell when Prue is killed by the demon Shax. Shannen also directed this episode, much like John Rhys-Davies. John, from the series "Sliders", conjured up the story for the episode of his departure and like Charmed, the plot of "Sliders" mostly took place in San Francisco.
If there are police everywhere and police tape to keep people back, how was the girl able to get on top of her van and shoot Piper before the police do anything?
After Alice shoots Piper, Darryl runs over there to help handcuff her but he really doesn't do anything, he just stands there. Why doesn't he run inside to help Prue and Piper?
When the soldiers are about to shoot Prue, she is standing facing the front of the room but when the camera switches the angle to inside the room, she is facing the side wall. Her position continues to change a few more times.
(Piper and Prue successfully vanquish Shax in a public place)
Prue: Oh, this is bad... (notices people standing around them start applauding)
Piper: (notices the News van) Ooooh, News at eleven...
Leo (after he finds out that Piper is dead): I don't understand.
(After breaking into the Halliwell Manor)
Alice Hicks: Cool! I finally made it!
Piper (Shocked): Who the hell are you?
Alice Hicks: I'm Alice, Alice Hicks. I've been trying to contact you! I want to join your coven!
Prue: Are you nuts? This is our home! Get outta here!
(Prue uses magic to throw Alice out of the house)
Alice Hicks (about Piper): I killed the wicked witch! The wicked witch is dead! I killed the wicked witch!
Piper: Prue, I'm cold. I can't--I can't--I can't feel my legs. Don't go. I love you.
Darryl: Whoa, Prue, Prue. Even if you can save your innocent, that still doesn't save yourselves.
Prue: Yeah, I know that, Darryl, but first things first, alright? Try and buy us as much time as possible with your captain as you can. (to Leo) And you, why don't you get back up there and whitelight a fire underneath your bosses' butts.
Piper: Hello Leo, nice of you to orb in...where've you been?!
Prue: They killed her Leo...they think we're the demons now.
Piper: We're gonna do talk shows and book signings and movie deals and then be taken by the C.I.A. and be dissected.
Prue: How can you be joking about this?
Piper: Who's joking?
Dr. Griffiths: What are you?
Shax: The end.
Piper: If you ask me, I think you're being paranoid. We kicked Shax's ass. We bad.
Piper: Which one? Oprah or Barbara?
Piper: Barbara makes you cry. We go with Oprah.
Piper: Ahh, what happened?
Leo: You almost died, that's what happened.
Piper: Yeah, what else is new.

This episode marks the third & final time Shannen Doherty has directed an episode. The first was Be Careful What You Witch For and the second was The Good, The Bad and The Cursed.
Title: All Hell Breaks Loose
The title of this episode is an expression that describes when there is confusion or violence surrounding an event. It comes from the John Milton poem Paradise Lost, in which the line read, "Wherefore with thee came not all hell broke loose?..."
Alice: I killed the wicked witch. The wicked witch is dead.
This is a reference to the famous line from the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz".
Piper: So what do you think, Oprah or Barbara?
Piper: Barbara makes you cry. We'll go with Oprah.
Piper is referring to the daytime talk show hosts, Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters. They both deal with really sad topics which in turn, sometimes cause their viewers to break out in tears.
