  • What a fantastic show the Charmed Ones put on in this episode. It just goes to show that the Charmed Ones will never be broken by evil.

    Fantastic. Excellent! WOW! This is one series classic. Besides it being amazingly emotional and full of fantastic acting from all the stars, the episode ends very nicely. At first, it starts out funny when Phoebe kills two demons and shows herself as the Queen. She then comes to her sisters when she gets a premonition, but through a series of events, Cole gets to suffer because of this. With it all being black or white and not grey, Pheobe writes two letters, one saying goodbye to her sisters, and the other saying goodbye to Cole, and is forced to choose which one to send. The ending scene is fantastic. Cole gets vanquished in an amazing special effects scene, and then the ending shows Phoebe being comforted by her sisters while she is crying on her bed over the loss of her husband Cole. She feels sad, and the mood is amplified with the perfect song being chosen to end the episode. Overall, absolutely stunning episode. 9.8 out of 10.
