Prudence 'Prue' Halliwell
If you look carefully, you can see DJ walk up behind Bane as he and Prue start to make out. Then when they zoom out to show the whole room, you see DJ walk up to Prue and Bane again and tap on Bane's shoulder. Then when they zoom in, you see DJ tap on his shoulder again!
When Prue tells Bane that she wants to talk to Barbas, Bane replies by saying "Well like I said, the night is young." however Prue told Bane that the night was young, not the other way around.
Dan asks Piper to move in with her and said her sisters can move in too, at least until the windows are installed in the conservatory. She replies by saying not all of them wear pajamas. However, in the episode P3 H2O, the morning after the girls go to the camp for the first time, Leo orbs to the house and all three sisters are wearing pajamas.
Antonio Sabàto Jr. (Baine) and Greg Vaughan(Dan) have both appeared on the daytime series General Hospital as Jagger Cates and Lucky Spencer.
Just before the scene where Prue goes into Barbas' office, Piper and Dan are seen kissing. Take a look at Dan's digital watch. While it seems to be night outside, Dan's watch clearly reads 15:27.
In From Fear To Eternity it was stated that Barbas could only come out every 1300 years unless he kills 13 witches. Yet he has come back only one year later even though he didn't kill 13 witches last time.
When Jack tells Prue they are partners she asks like she still does not like him. However, she had began dating him in the previous episode when she asked him to Dinner after finding out he covered for her and specifically said that they would be mixing business with Pleasure, so why did she act annoyed that they were being partnered up?
After Hellfire is killed, Prue says that she hasw never killed a mortal before. However, that is not exactly true. In the season one episode Dream Sorcerer, Prue kills Whittacker while dreaming in self defense. While he definitely had a talent for stalking people's dreams, it was said then he was in fact mortal and just a scientific genius.
TRIVIA: In this episode it's revealed that brain washing is one of Barbas' powers. Previously, his powers shown were his ability to read fears, bring them to life and change his voice. In following episodes he will also project himself psychically (the form of astro projection Rex used in season 1) into his victims.
Why would Bane, who was obviously a professional in soliciting hits, hire Hellfire for Barbas anyway? He had no prior connection, nor did he seem to be afraid. So how is it that Barbas who living in Demon Purgatory could not possibly have access to money and apparently did not use intimidation manage to successfully hire Bane in the first place?
TRIVIA: This episode featured the song
Still After You by Earth To Andy and the song Find My Baby by Moby.
When Bane is asking Prue about the Marcy being dead, he asks her about the last name on the list. Marcy wasn't the last name on the list - her name was above P. Halliwell.
When Piper freezes Marcy, she is standing next to the piano, but when she unfreezes she is standing next to the couch.
TRIVIA: Dan reveals that Jenny has now moved back in with her parents.
TRIVIA: Prue was the first sister to get a second power or a developed one.
When Prue reflects the bullets back to the hitwoman, the hitwoman is shown as falling back from the bullets. Later when Darryl sees her dead he says "she is riddled with bullets", but there are no bullets seen in the hitwoman.
Why would Piper stand where she was when she unfroze just Bane? She was practically right next to Barbas, and she stated she'd never tried unfreezing one person before, so it might have unfrozen Barbas as well!
TRIVIA: It seems odd that Barbas has to hire a hitman in the first plac, since he's a demon and could easily kill 13 witches before midnight himself. However, last year he tried to kill 13 witches himself and was thwarted by the Charmed Ones. He probably thought using mortal weapons and a human assassin would allow him to finish them off for good, since they are accustomed to being attacked by demons, not guns.
TRIVIA: In this episode it's stated that it was Phoebe who taught Prue how to french-kiss in high school.
It's reasonable that Bane doesn't know what the hitwoman, Ms. Hellfire, looks like, but shouldn't he know what the Halliwells (especially Prue) look like? Since he wants them dead and should then recognize or at least check on her when she pretends to be Ms. Hellfire.
At first when Ms. Hellfire starts shooting, the cereal bowl breaks. Later when Piper starts to run to Prue and Phoebe the bowl seems to break again.
TRIVIA: This episode marks the second appearance and vanquish of Barbas, the Demon of Fear.
TRIVIA: Darryl learns that the Halliwell sisters are witches.
TRIVIA: In this episode Prue gets a new power - Astral Projection.
When Marcy is doing her protection spell her arms are up when Piper freezes her but when she is unfrozen, her arms are level with her body.
Phoebe and Piper see Prue walking up the driveway from the kitchen like she's going to come into the house from the back, but she then walks in the front door.
Barbas knows that he needs 13 dead witches by midnight and he also knows that Marcy isn't dead so why doesn't he arrange for her to be killed? It's no good having the Halliwells dead if she's not.
To avoid a police investigation, Morris helps the sisters to make it look like Ms. Hellfire died because of the explosion in her 13th victim's store. Shouldn't a medical examiner have discovered that she had a bunch of bullets in her body and been a bit suspicious?
Although it's convenient for the Halliwells that the hitwoman carried a purse with ALL her info in it, it's not very realistic. Most of that stuff would be left at her place; the purse and anything else would stay in the car. No respectable hitwoman would sneak around - about to make a hit - with a purse flung over her shoulder!
Barbas (to Willis): Your greatest fear is that Bane will be double crossed, and will come to kill you...
(Bane bursts through the door with an automatic gun and fires at Willis, who screams and falls over, Bane leaves the room, and Willis gets up, relatively unharmed)
(Reading Ms Hellfire's notebook - Prue: Telekinises, Piper: Freeze, Phoebe: Negligible)
(Trying to decide on a plan to stop the hitman)
Prue: Send flying?
(The sisters are hiding behind the couch, while being shot at)
Phoebe: Since when do demons use bullets!?
Piper: Maybe it's not a demon?
Prue: Who else would want to kill us?
Phoebe: You know you were a little sharp to the mailman yesterday and we all know how testy they can be.
Phoebe (about Barbas): I never get tired of kicking his butt.
Phoebe: Where's Prue?
Piper: Way overdue. She's assumed the identity of the hitwoman.
Piper: Yeah, and guess what. She's got a new power. She can astral project now.
Phoebe: Are you kidding me?
Phoebe: Are you kidding me?
Phoebe: I hate her.
Piper: I know.
Prue unrolls lipstick and a blade points upwards.
Prue: Mmm. Not exactly Avon calling.
Darryl: I don't want to know if you own a damn broom, a skillet, a cauldron, a dust buster. I don't give a damn.
Piper: I don't even care that it's Friday...
Phoebe: Shh! Don't even say it.
Piper: The 13th. See, I said it and nothing happened.
Someone starts shooting through the windows of the house. They scream and run past the dining room, into the living room. Prue and Phoebe dive behind the couch and Piper stays on the other side of the room.
Phoebe: I told you not to say it!
Piper: Oh, so this is my fault?!
Phoebe (after she hangs up Prue's phone): I am very tired and now I need a nap.
Prue: Emergency staff meeting? When this morning?
Phoebe: 9:30. Be there or be fired.
Prue: I'm on my way.
Piper (walking into the solarium): Morning.
Phoebe: Hi. (to Prue) Do you recognize that person?
Prue: I don't know, she looks vaguely familiar. Kind of like a sister we used to have. What was her name? Pi... Pipp..
Phoebe: Pi... Pippy?
Phoebe: Whatever happened to her?
Prue: I don't know. She fell in lust with the next door neighbor, started spending all her time there.
Prue (while she, Phoebe and Piper are being shot at): Oh, like I need this today.
Prue: Phoebe, I'm working.
Phoebe: More like you're working it!
Phoebe: Who knew perky could be so annoying?
Piper: Are you happy?
Phoebe: I'm delirious.
