In the season 1 episode Is There a Woogy in the House?, the Shadow was a demon whose mission was to win the Nexus for evil. In this episode, however, it seems to be a neutral being with the power to choose between good and evil.
When Zankou is preparing to kill the Charmed Ones, he says it feels "almost anticlimactic". These are the exact same words the Source used when he tried to do the same thing in the season 4 episode Charmed and Dangerous.
Paige says in this episode that scrying is "witch-to-witch" stuff, but in the season 6 episode Valhalley of the Dolls Part 1 Paige uses Wyatt to scry for Leo, who was an Elder at the time.
This is not the first time Piper has been shrunk. Previously in the season 4 episode Size Matters Piper, along with Phoebe and Paige were shrunk by Gammil the collector.
When Piper and Leo are next to the book searching for a spell the image that the book is showing keeps changing without even touching the book. How it is possible? First we see a wizard page, and just before Piper blows up the pages another page is shown (the one we saw in Eames' episode).
When Piper said the woogeyman spell she did not say "return to dark, where shadows dwell, you can't have this Halliwell" which is a part of the original spell.
In this episode, Zankou tries to take in the Nexus but the first time he does this it dosen't stay in him. He said there must still be good in the house, but in the season 5 episode "The Importance of Being Phoebe" the Nexus stays in Cole, even though Phoebe was in the house right in front of them, which means even though good was in the house, Zankou should have been able to take in the Nexus.
TRIVIA: This is the fourth time that the "Woogyman" spell has been used - the three previous times were in the season 1 episode Is There A Woogy in the House?, the season 2 episode Witch Trial, and the season 5 episode, The Importance of Being Phoebe.
TRIVIA: Piper & Phoebe find a way to keep Leo safe from demons & give him something to do with his time: they put him in charge of Magic School, also giving Paige some much needed time away from the school.
TRIVIA: Wyatt sees a demon attack Leo and decides to keep him & Piper safe, so with a blink of his eyes, orbs them into the dollhouse.
Piper and Leo continuously mention that Leo can no longer self heal - since when could he ever heal himself? It was said that whitelighters couldn't heal themselves, the last time Leo did do that was in "Saving Private Leo". Whitelighters don't have to self-heal, because the only thing that can injure them in the first place is a darklighter arrow. When they do get injured by a darklighter arrow, they are not self-healing and they die.
Would a small electronic device like Elise's Blackberry really spark after being stomped on? It probably runs on rechargable batteries. Not direct electrical current.
When Leo, Wyatt and Chris are in the attic playing with the dollhouse, Piper walks in and Leo turns to talk to Piper. While they are talking, the back of Wyatt is in view, and he has his hands behind his back. The next shot shows Wyatt's front and he now has his hands in front of him, playing with the dollhouse.
If the dollhouse is a perfect replica of the manor why didn't Leo and Piper go to the attic to see if there was a version of the Book of Shadows?
Piper (to Leo): My arms are a little sore, but I'm not the one with the hole in my back.
(Phoebe is on the phone with Elise)
Phoebe: Where are you, Elise? I've been trying to find you all day!
Elise: Yeah, that's funny. I've been avoiding you all day!
Piper (about how Wyatt is stubborn like Leo): I see he's just as stubborn as someone else I know!
Leo (about how Piper is watering the plants too much when she can't deal with his humanity): I need you to be supportive... and not drown the plants.
Piper (to Leo): We're supposed to just sit here and watch you bleed to death!?
Phoebe: Read now, bitch later.
Leo: You're the one who said to improvise.
Piper: Well, since when does anyone listen to me?
Piper: I can't believe we've been miniature for two hours and demons take over the house.
Piper: You used to be a doctor!?
Leo: Yeah, like 60 years ago.
Elise: It's always life and death with you, Halliwells.
Piper covers Leo's eyes, and leads him into the magic school. She then removes her hands from his eyes.
Leo: What, you want me to clean Magic School?
Phoebe's phone rings.
Paige: Will you shut that freaking thing off?
Phoebe: I'm sorry, but you gotta admire the range, huh? We're in the underworld. It's pretty good.
Piper (to Leo, after Wyatt has shrunk them both): I will handle Wyatt. This needs a mother's touch. (yells) Wyatt Matthew Halliwell, you will stop this nonsense right now!
Leo: Wow, that's the first time you've used his full name.
Piper: Yeah, well it sounds better when I'm scolding him.
