Although it is said that all the Halliwell ancestors will be summoned, Prue and Patty are not shown during Wyatt's Wiccaning.
During the wiccaning when Grams first takes Wyatt from Piper she is wearing both earrings. But when she turns toward the matriarchs she is only wearing one earring and Wyatt has the earring in his hand. Then when she hands Wyatt back to Piper she has both her earrings back again.
When Piper and Paige vanquished the Creeper, Piper called Paige and said that she was needed but all that was done was a spell was said and a potion was thrown. Piper could've done that by herself.
Penny said that the last time the Necromancer attacked was at Patty's wiccaning. So when did they date? Penny was still married to Allen at that point, as shown in the season six episode Witchstock, he did not die until the late 1960's when Patty was older!
It is said in this episode that Grams' romance with the Necromancer is the reason she gave up on love and began hating men. However, that is contradicted in part during the season six episode 'Witchstock' when it is said that Grams' gave up on love and became bitter with the death of her first husband Allen.
Phoebe is shown seeing Jason by looking out a certain window but in the episode Womb Raider, that window shows the house next door, not the street.
TRIVIA: When Wyatt has his Wiccaning, it's the first (unofficial) appearance by twins, Jason and Kristopher Simmons. They would take over the role of Wyatt, at the beginning of season 6, but not be officially credited with the role until halfway through season 8.
TRIVIA: The notes Grams put in the Book of Shadows about the Necromancer are very similar to the notes Phoebe added to the book about Cole/Belthazor, in the season 3 episode "Look Who's Barking".
TRIVIA: Scout Taylor-Compton (Thistle) also appeared in the season 3 episode "Once Upon A Time".
How is the Necromancer a ghost? To be a ghost, one must have a soul, and demons don't have souls, unless they are extraordinary like Cole - a fact that has been mentioned a few times.
In the episode "Bride and Gloom" Cole says that demons and other evil beings cannot love, which is why the Warlock Zile couldn't say "I love you", but the Necromancer told Grams that he loved her in this episode.
TRIVIA: Paige uses the Truth Spell on her boyfriend Nate, just a Prue did on Andy in the season 1 episode "The Truth Is Out There And It Hurts".
TRIVIA: Grams says the spell to vanquish a ghost has to be said by a ghost, which is the same spell Prue used in the season 1 episode "Power of Two" and Piper used in the season 4 episode "Saving Private Leo" when they both died in these episodes.
TRIVIA: Foreshadowing? Grams mentions that male witches are prone to evil, along with the Crone's "great" things she saw, will this cause a problem with Wyatt?
Why couldn't Paige or Piper cast the spell to summon Grams? They waited for Phoebe so she could do it, but they could've done it.
When Paige's boyfriend is in jail, in one scene he seems to have a roommate, but when Darryl lets him out he leaves the door open. Wouldn't the inmate escape - unless he was moved to another cell?
Piper is attacked by the demon's fire and flown away across the room hitting a mirror and shattering it, but she seems uninjured.
When Grams starts her man bashing rant, Leo points out she was married 4 times,which is also the amount of times said in the season three episode 'Magic hour' However in "Lost and Bound", Phoebe stated Grams had been married six times when she put a hex on the engagement ring.
When Leo is in the bedroom with Piper discussing Grams, Wyatt is awake, and then a few shots later is clearly asleep, and is then awake for the remainder of the shots.
Grams (to Piper): I am so sorry. I never realized how much my anger, my bitterness affected my life, or yours. And I'm most sorry for what I did to my great-grandson…If ever I wanted a second chance, it would be with him, and you.
(Piper hugs her.)
Grams (to Phoebe and Paige): Don't make the same mistake I did. Don't ever give up on love.
Darryl: Do you know how much trouble I'm in? The man's got constitutional rights, you know?
Paige: Oh, constitution, schmonstitution, Darryl.
Piper: What are you doing with Wyatt? I thought Grams was gonna spend some time with him.
Leo: Well, she didn't want to.
Piper: What? That's ridiculous.
Leo: Really? Then why didn't she want to touch him or change him or feed him?
Piper: Well, she's probably just resting before the ceremony. She said she was gonna do it as soon as we get rid of the Necromancer.
Leo: Piper, it has nothing to do with the Necromancer, and you know it. Grams doesn't like the fact that Wyatt's a boy, and she makes no bones about it.
Phoebe: What's going on here?
Piper: Your grandmother hates your nephew. That's what's going on here.
Grams: That's not what I said.
Piper: Oh, she only said that she hates men!
Paige (about Jason): I'm just saying, he could be living a double life. He could be married. He could have a mistress. He could be gay!
Nate(about magic): I just didn't know it was really real. Oh my God, my wife is going to love this!
Paige: Wait, you're married?
Nate: Did I just say wife?
Paige: You didn't tell me you were married!
Nate: I didn't tell you that I had kids either, but...
Leo (to Wyatt, after Grams shows her disgust about a boy witch): Now you know why we don't summon her more often.
Phoebe (to Wyatt): But no spitting up. And none of that toxic poop you do sometimes. Grams hasn't been around babies since she was alive.
Leo: Paige? Darryl's on the phone, he's pretty pissed. Something about your boyfriend?
Paige: He's not my boyfriend, he's my ex-boyfriend.
Grams (about the Necromancer): I was just trying to show how much he craves life, the sensuousness of it - food, drinks, sex...
Piper: Oh! I don't want to hear about a dead demon doing the dirty.
Necromancer: Penny Halliwell. The witch who stole my heart. You should have seen her. The glint in her eye, the way she held up her hand and sent me hurdling
into that wall.
Necromancer: Didn't hurt as much as the potion did, though. I can tell she made it herself. The flames were excruciating. She was furious with me, which can only mean one thing: she still feels the passion, the heat.
Shreek: You sure that wasn't the fire?
Piper: Grams was alive when she banished the Necromancer, right?
Piper: Okay, well, now she's dead!
Paige: You sound so happy about that.
Grams: And, you know, men are just so...
Paige: Evil! That's what they are. They are just plain evil.
Piper: Oh. I take it Nate wasn't too happy about you being a witch.
Paige: Oh, Nate was fine with my being a witch. It's maybe his wife that would have had a problem.
Piper: He's married?
Paige: Yeah. With two kids.
Piper: Oh, honey, I'm so sorry.
Grams: I told you she should have gotten a dog.
Grams (after Phoebe and Paige leave for their dates): They'd be better off with a dog. More loyal, and they die sooner.
Phoebe(to Wyatt): You could be on the cover of GQ, you're so handsome!
Paige: We done here?
Piper: Yes. Sleaze away.
Paige: Well, at least I get some.
Paige: Maybe you'd be okay with this?
Nate: Yeah. Hell yeah!
Piper (reading in the Book of Shadows what Grams had written about the Necromancer): Enjoys Clark Gable movies?
Darryl: This is so not my problem!
Nate: Listen to the doughnut hog!
Paige: Ghosts can feel pain. Maybe I could just orb his testicles somewhere.
Piper: Paige! There will be no talking of testicle-orbing in front of the child!
Leo: Or in front of his dad either.
Nate: What's so funny?
Darryl: You'll never know. A little friendly advice-don't ask me questions, don't call Paige, and walk away as fast as you can.
Nate: Is that a threat?
Darryl: Actually, Nate, it is.
Necromancer (to Grams, who the sisters didn't realize he knew): Penny!
