  • Bad Title, Bad Everything

    After almost a season of taking care of babies and, uh, not much else, Piper finally gets a spot in the limelight with this above average episode which is a total masterpiece compared to the season so far.

    Sword and the City has the sisters protecting the Sword in the Stone for the Lady in the Lake. Whilst many demons gather round the manor trying to pull out Excalibur, it ends up being Piper who manages to pull it out. The man teaching her how to use Excalibur is revealed to be evil and Piper begins to turn evil because of the sword.

    Holly Marie Combs has revealed in interviews that this is her favorite episode and it's not difficult to see why. Piper gets lots of action throughout the hour and its fun seeing her all done up in that leather outfit, kicking demon ass with Excalibur. Holly's brilliant at playing evil (as she's shown in the past whilst being possessed by the Wendigo, the Fury and Terra)
    and she really gets to shine in this episode. The only bad thing about this episode is that all the family seem so happy that baby Wyatt just telekinetically killed somebody. He uses his new powers to send the sword flying into Morduant's stomach, which is slightly disturbing since he's not even one-years-old yet and they're already teaching him to kill.

    Besides that, Sword and the City is a mediocre episode which is lacking that charm (no pun intended) that the writers seemed to of forgotten about this season.
