    This has to be the darkest episode in Charmed history. Looking back on it, I think that it might have been better if Cole was actually killed in this episode, without him returning for the first 12 episodes of next season.

    Long Live the Queen has Phoebe slowly crossing back over to the good side after she gets a premonition of a young man being killed by a demon. Whilst Cole tries to keep her evil, Piper and Paige try to lure Phoebe back over to their side so they can kill Cole once and for all...

    An explosive episode which has some of the darkest moments on the show, it's a shame that Charmed never returned to this level of darkness during the next three seasons. The closing moments, where Piper and Paige hold a mourning Phoebe in bed as the scene fades is heartbreaking and the only time Charmed has ever made me genuinely sad. All the actresses are perfect during this scene, from Phoebe's weeping, Piper's determination to help and Paige's vulnerability. The writers should of saved this for the season finale, as it is wonderfully written, wonderfully acted and features some very memorable scenes and events. Perfection.
