So while I don't really have anything against this episode, Blinksterboy says exactly what I'm thinking:
"Paige was really annoying in this episode. I can understand why seeing Belthazor might have shocked her but did she have to go on about it all day? In the six weeks she's known Cole he's not done anything remotely evil. Granted, it was an important part of the plot but I felt it was over the
On top of that because she finally learns about what he USED to be, she starts being all weird. On the phone 'morphed into any demons lately?', treating him like he's guilty.
Yes he's done a lot of crap in his life, but he was a demon doing it, an evil being who knew no better, he's finally learning better, realising there is a reason to live for good, and I think that makes him quite special as a 'person' and deserving of more respect than the little he got in this episode, not just from Paige.
The woman wanting revenge was extremely over the top for me and done quite badly. While I get it, you lost your husband, this is another human being fully aware of the existence of demons, why is nobody killing her to silence her? And I hated how she acted so selfish in the park and in the house. I get she wants revenge, but you can't just devote yourself to magic, you aren't magic, you might know his MO but knowing EXACTLY when and where he'd be without scrying or anything is total crap.
I thought the whole protige thing was interesting, it'd make sense that he would've had someone that he trained in his life that was of his 'species'.
Piper saying "honey we can't have a demon in the family" I thought was quite selfish and rude.. Phoebe risked eternal pain or torment to bless Piper and Leo's wedding, but she wants to marry a man she loves and is trying to be good and Piper shuts down in what she believes is a humorous way.
Either way, this is where Paige goes downhill for me for a while. At least the anti-cole Paige. She has NO reason to distrust Cole yet she does from the moment she saw him in the book. This wasn't her 'sensing' he's evil like she sensed the creepy house was evil. Cole IS NOT evil yet, he hasn't done anything yet, and hasn't yet by the time Paige goes on a complete crusade against him.
I hate identifying a demon by an 'energy ball'. It was Cole's because of an energy ball? I'm sorry A LOT of demons have energy balls and they all look identical.
