Generation Hex

Aired Sunday 8:00 PM Apr 16, 2006 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • When viewing her past life from the 1920s, Phoebe tells Coop her boyfriend Anton was a demon. However, in the original episode Pardon My Past, Anton was a warlock.

    • In the season 7 episode The Seven Year Witch, Wyatt uses his powers to heal Piper, yet the sisters and Billie still consider calling Paige back from her honeymoon as if she's the only one around with healing powers. Piper explains in the episode Scry Hard that this is because she "doesn't want to keep forcing Wyatt to tap into his powers before he's ready."

    • TRIVIA: When Paige orbs in from her honeymoon she is holding a drink and says not to worry it is virgin. This is a consistent fact since her first appearance in the episode Charmed Again (1), Paige while never directly saying she was a "recovering alcoholic", stopped drinking in her early 20's due to it being a problem and continued to abstain throughout the show.

    • At the end of the episode Rewitched, Phoebe visits Dex while he is watching the interview with Agent Murphy. Strangely enough, when Coop takes Phoebe to the exact same moment in this episode, Dex is watching a news report on the Golden Gate bridge.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Coop says Phoebe he will show her why "it's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all". In the season 2 episode Heartbreak City, Phoebe asks Cupid not to say to her exactly that.

    • By following Phoebe's heart, Phoebe and Coop find themselves witnessing Cole's demise in "Centennial Charmed". How can Phoebe remember how Cole was vainquished, if this happened in an alternate reality, and Paige was the only one keeping her memories when the normal reality was restored?

    • Paige is looking directly at Christy when time stops and the latter talks with Candor. When time starts up Christy has dropped her fork, is facing differently, and looks markedly different...but Paige, still looking at her, doesn't notice the substantial changes which would have occurred simultaneouly from her point of view.

    • TRIVIA: This episode marks the death of the last Triad member, Candor. Christy killed him after he murdered her & Billie's parents.

    • When Phoebe and Coop are revisiting Phoebe's past lives, they revisit her season 7 love, Drake. When he leaves the room, Coop speaks aloud to present Phoebe with no regard to whether past Phoebe will hear him - since they duck and hide, obviously they are visible to the past people, so can't they be heard too?

    • TRIVIA: This episode marks the death of Billie and Christy's parents, Carl and Helen Jenkins.

    • TRIVIA: Wyatt speaks his first full sentences in this episode.

    • Phoebe was wrong when she brought Cupid to the college campus and said that that was where she first met Cole. They actually met the day before, when Phoebe and her sisters stopped a man from killing Det. Morris in an alley. The sisters stuck around for witness statements when Cole showed up and introduced himself as the ADA. The college campus scene was just Cole seeing if Phoebe knew more than she let on so Cole would have a better case in court against the man that tried to kill Det. Morris.

    • TRIVIA: The following made appearances in this episode via clip footage from past episodes - Eric Dane, Nick Lachey, Julian McMahon, Billy Zane, Monica Allegeir, Rebecca Balding, Tyler Christopher & Jason Lewis.

    • Why did Paige bother dragging all of her suitcases down the stairs, when she was going to orb them away with her anyways?

    • TRIVIA: In this episode Coop and Phoebe visit her past memories in a quest to help Phoebe start again with love. The past memories are from the season 8 episode "Rewitched", season 2's "Pardon My Past", season 7's "Seven Year Witch", season 3's "The Honeymoon's Over", season 5's "Centennial Charmed""Baby's First Demon", season 6's "The Power of Three Blondes" and season 7's "A Call To Arms".

    • TRIVIA: David Starzyk and Barbara Niven reprise their roles as Billie's parents from the earlier season 8 episode "Mr. & Mrs. Witch".

    • TRIVIA: In this episode Christy demonstrates that she can talk telepathically to Billie, but Billie answers vocally.

  • Quotes

    • (Piper just finished making a vanquishing potion for the Noxens)
      Piper: Ok. So, the next time the Noxens attack, we'll be ready for them.
      Ryan: What about the whole "unvanquishable" thing?
      Piper: Well, you know, Magic School rules don't always apply to the outside world. It's kind of like Vegas!

    • Christy: I don't have any stuff.
      Piper: Well, you will have stuff, every girl has stuff, we have tons of stuff, you can have some of our stuff, you gotta wear somethin'.

    • Coop: You can't keep running from love...
      Phoebe: I'm not running, I'm walking.

    • Ryan: Let's get out of here.
      Piper: Wait, you can't go anywhere. You can barely walk.
      Ryan: Look, if we don't keep moving, we're dead. Leo was the only one who knew how to stop them and he's not here.
      Piper: Okay well, what am I? Chop liver? Listen, Leo is my husband and if he sent you here for help, then help is what you're gonna get.

    • Paige: I guess I better go. Don't wanna lose my honeymoon. You sure you're gonna be okay without me?
      Piper: Well, we won't know until you're gone. (Paige gives her a look) I'm kidding!

    • Wyatt (to Piper, who was questioning whether Leo would allow the students to go ahead with their plan): Let them try. Daddy would.

    • Candor (to Christy, as she sticks her arm through him, slowly killing him): Congratulations... you just passed...the final...test.

    • Candor (after he killed Christy's parents): I did what was necessary.
      Christy: They were my parents!
