  • Billie, the apprentice witch to the Charmed Ones, is initiated into the Charmed witch-life by being influenced/changed by an object that has a bad side affect.

    Billie puts on a magical belt and is turned into a super-powerful witch that has influence on women to punish men. The sisters have to get Billie out of trouble again (how annoying can that be). Pheobe is now looking for love and not only for the father of her future child. Piper is a little less sarcastic and little less annoying. Leo is, as always, informative and fabulous whenever he is on the screen. I hate that he is no longer a whitelighter to help save them. Paige has a new man in her life. He is a cop and he is awfully conflicting towards Paige.

    Billie ends up turning into a different character which is something that every Charmed One eventually encounters. That is normally the best part of the show. The writers are normally real good with using unique topics and subjects. This episode involves Greek mythology (which I love) and the Chinese terms “ying” and “yang.” It is all about the battle of the sexes-in which case, the women rule. This episode focuses on Kira, a demon, (from a previous episode from season 3-The Demon Who Came in from the Cold-which she played a demon called Klea) who thinks that if she gets rid of the male demons, she could rule. The belt happens to be the power she needs to get from under the shadow of a male demon.

    The sisters have to rescue Billie before she dies from the belt that she should have never tried on. The best part of the episode is when they use their magic. And that is why this show is GREAT!!!
