Leslie St. Claire
Agent Kyle Brody
In Wrestling with Demons, a demon trainee only has to kill any one innocent to complete their transformation, not their entire bloodline.
TRIVIA: When Piper says to Phoebe "I'm not in the mood to lose another sister" - this is of course referring to Prue, who died in the season 3 episode All Hell Breaks Loose.
TRIVIA: When Piper collects the old man's soul, they go to the ghostly plane, which is where Piper and Leo were trapped and conceived Chris in the season 6 episode The Courtship of Wyatt's Father.
This is the only episode where ghosts appear in the white "moving on" clothes. The sisters have all died at least five times, but this is the only time that they've showed the ghost costumes.
TRIVIA: Death's list contains the names of many Charmed crew members.
If mortals aren't allowed to enter Magic School, how come Artie's wife was allowed to go in?
The first and the last time in this episode the Angel of Death teleports away he has a cool "fading corpse" effect that doesn't appear any other time he (or Piper)teleport: they just fade out in the blue mist.
In the season 3 episode Death Takes A Halliwell the Angel of Death says that Prue saw him only because she was next on the list after Reese. In Styx Feet Under Death intentionally shows himself to the Charmed Ones because he suspects that they're responsible for his inability to claim the chaplain's soul. Both these themes are repeated in the season 8 episode Vaya Con Leos - Death intentionally shows himself to Piper to warn her that he's coming for Leo; and Death is able to identify Leo as the soul he's after because Leo can see him.
Piper is obviously wearing an undershirt when she wakes up at the morgue. A strap is visible on her shoulder that's a different color then the sheets.
TRIVIA: Phoebe has her first premonition since her active powers were taken away in "Crimes and Witch-Demeanors" - this means she only has two more to get back: levitation and empathy.
Piper & Paige both return from their death but Paige's body remains in the street. Seems odd that there were not any onlookers around when she awakens.
Doesn't Paige care that she orbed to a public place right next to the street - how many witnesses to magic could that have caused?
There are not currently any Army bases in San Francisco, but even if there were, security would prevent Piper and Paige from driving onto the base.
When Death first arrives at the manor and says Artie people on his list have to die in order, they show a close-up of the list and Artie isn't on it in either the "Dead" or "To Die" column.
While Leo pulls away from Artie after examining the hole in his stomach his hand which can be seen through the hole should have moved along with him but it can clearly be seen that the hand doesn't pull away too.
Death is not supposed to be seen by mortals, but when the list appears in his hand so he can give it to Piper, his shadow is cast on the man standing behind him on the sidewalk.
Piper: You scared me!
Patient: I scared you?! Who are you, and what's happening?
Piper: Well, I think you might actually be... you know, dead. I know. Bummer, huh?
Phoebe: That's it? That's your offer, huh? No deal. Forget it.
Sirk: In that case, I guess I'll just have to kill...
(Sirk throws a lightning bolt at Paige and she falls to the ground)
Paige: Okay fine. Piper's dead.
Piper: I'm not dead. I'm Death. As if my life wasn't busy enough!
(Piper magically appears, dressed as Death.)
Phoebe Whoa! How'd you do tha... What are you wearing?!
Piper: Okay, starting to panic!
Paige: Oh no.
Piper: Oh no? What could be more "oh no" than they're taking my body away for an autopsy?
Guy: Uh, forensics is done. We're gonna take the bodies if it's okay with you.
Inspector: Go ahead.
Piper (gasps): Where are they taking me?
Paige: Uh, where are you taking her?
Inspector: The morgue. After the autopsy we'll release your sister's body to you.
Piper: Oh no, no, no! They can't do that, they can't do that!
Paige: Stop yelling in my ear! No...no, you can't do an autopsy because you see, it's against our... religion!
Paige: We agreed that the only reason we are out hunting for demons constantly is because Phoebe won't deal with her 'Leslie' issues.
Phoebe: Wait, I have 'Leslie' issues?
Paige: Why is it that every time Phoebe runs away from a guy that we actually pay for it?
Phoebe: Leo, relax. Piper's been dead before.
Piper (about Agent Brody): What's he doing here?
Paige: Probably watching me talk to myself.
Sirk: The sisters had Death's list. They knew who I was trying to kill!
Seer: And you knew about the woman's unborn child! Foreknowledge is a bitch sometimes.
Angel of Death: That's rather selfish of you, don't you think? Unless, of course, you think that death is pointless.
Piper: Well, I...
Angel of Death: It's not, you know. Far from it. Life only has meaning specifically because there is an end. Death is what forces people to live.
Piper: You know, we've given up a lot to make sure you have less work. I have two kids and a business, and I still find time to fight demons too. It's not our fault that you can't keep up.
Angel of Death: That isn't my problem.
Piper: Well it sure as hell isn't my problem.
Paige: Stop yelling at Death!
Piper: I don't care - he's getting on my last nerve.
Policeman: Again, I'm sorry for your loss.
Paige: It's okay...
Piper: Could you sound a little more upset, please?
(Sirk throws an energy ball at the Seer. The Seer shimmers out, missing the energy ball, then shimmers back in.)
Seer: Hello? I'm a Seer, I saw that coming.
Paige and Piper are about to go through the Portal.
Piper: You're stalling.
Paige: I know, but you can't blame a girl for trying.
Angel of Death: I wouldn't do that if I were you. Your sister made a trade.
The Angel of Death punches Kevin, sending him through the portal.
Piper: And you helped a demon?
Angel of Death: On the contrary, your demon helped me.
Piper: You can't do that, you're supposed to be neutral.
Phoebe: Dude, you're dead. Start acting the part.
Sirk: I'm so close to losing this foul human soul, but the Charmed Ones still thwart me.
Seer: Well, they are the Charmed Ones. And they're pretty good with the
Sirk: I want to peel the flesh from their bones while they still live.
Seer: Okay, just because we're demons doesn't mean we always have to be so...eww.
Sirk: Just tell me how to defeat them.
Seer: And you'll stop with the gross flesh peely talk?
This episode scored 4.8 million viewers.
Simon Templeman previously appeared as the Angel of Death in the season 3 episode Death Takes A Halliwell and will later appear in the season 8 episode Vaya Con Leos.
When the Death fades away, the image of a skull in Death's face is shown briefly. This is a common effect used to lead the audience without them realizing it. Technically, doing this effect is a clear reference to Alfred Hitchcock as he used the same effect in the film Pyscho, in the scene where he superimposes Norman Bates' face on his mother's skull.
Title: Styx Feet Under
The river Styx is the river that the dead must cross in Greek Mythology to reach Hades' realm of the Underworld. The ferryman Charon sees spirits across, and they must pay him with the coins that were traditionally buried with the dead. If a spirit cannot pay the ferryman, it wanders aimlessly between the worlds of the living and the dead. Also it's a reference to the HBO drama series Six Feet Under, about a family that runs a funeral home.
