    Power Outage-In an attempt to destroy the Charmed Ones, Cole enlists the help of Andras, a demon who magnifies anger into rage. Meanwhile, when the sisters lose their magic after using their powers against each other, they are left defenseless against attacks from the Triad and Belthazor.

    The best episode to feature Cole trying to kill the Charmed Ones and some turly surreal sisterly moments, "Power Outage" is a superb episode that brings a lot of revelations to the table. There have always been issues between the sisters but their demon fighting pretty much got in the way with them telling each other how they really felt. The best scene of the episode is definately the big fight where all 3 sisters have a big blow out about how they've been filling for so many years. Our 3 leads are excellent here and it's shocking how the fight ends with the sisters using their powers on each other.

    Julian McMahon is really starting to come into his own as Cole/Belthazor as he is struggling to be the merciless demon his always been, but can't help but be helplessly in love with Phoebe. The scene where Phoebe goes to Cole's apartment for help is a beautiful scene, with Phoebe's vunerablity and Cole's inner struggle throughout. It's a great development that Cole lets Phoebe go home, showing how much he cares about her. Another wonderful scene is the sisters finally working out their issues and regaining the powers back as they learn to always be honest each other from now on for the sack of their destiny.

    Once again, there are some flaws, with the most irritating one being Jason Carter's terribly grating acting Andras, The Demon Of Rage. Either he thinks his a much better than he actually is or his partial deaf as his constant shouting made his scene almost unbearable! But anyway, I also really enjoyed the fight scenes throughout this episode like the sisters' quick rehearsal with Leo impersonating Belthazor and the sister finally getting a piece of his flesh, then Prue sending him flying through one of the windows. The episode ends with a shocking end as Cole kills the Triad as he has now gone obviously and completely mad! All and All, "Power Outage" is another superb episode with wonderful performances from the leads, a great demon plot, and terrific developments.
