    The Demon Who Came In From the Cold-Cole poses as Belthazar to infiltrate an internet organization run by evil, that plans on controlling the world's information flow on the internet. Meanwhile, the sisters must vanquish the warlock posing as the company's manager without exposing Cole's role in the situation.

    A solid episode that puts Cole right back into center stage and sees his loyalty being tested. The dynamic between Cole and Phoebe grows stronger each week as Alyssa and Julian play off each other so well. It's great to see Cole trying to commit to his path his taking to be good as well as Phoebe desperately trying to protect Cole. Both characters at the point are very dependent of one another and their relationship is becoming very surreal, despite a supernatural twist.

    The Brotherhood make for an impressive group of villains and their master plan throughout the episode was well done, even intelligent. The cast that make up the Brotherhood are all good in their roles and the way they act along side Julian makes you really believe these characters have history. Seeing Cole get pushed back into his old ways is great to watch as you don't whether he really enjoys being back with evil or if he feels unbelieveablly guilty about the horrific acts his doing. Julian plays that off very well and there are times where you think Cole has really turned. Luckily, in the end it was all an act with the nice twist and Cole does help save the day in the end. But his sudden capture by Raynor, the Brotherhood was a suspenseful little cliffhanger as it leaves you waiting eagerly for next episode. All and All, "The Demon That Came In From The Cold" (God who comes up with these long titles?) is a great episode giving us some insight on Cole's past and some dark storytelling.
