  • Cole is working to assist The Charmed Ones ... Or is he?

    One of the continuous storylines througout Cole Turner's tenure on the show is the burning question - is he a good guy, a bad guy, a truly evil guy, or perhaps, all three?

    In this episode, he is definitely playing the good guy as he goes undercover as his alter-ego, Belthazor, to mix with a group of unsavoury demons whom, it would seem, answer directly to 'The Source'. He does a mighty good job of convincing the nasty underworld brotherhood that he is one of them (perhaps too good?) and his is, we hope, helping the girls with this deed rather than making life tougher for them.

    In an almost secondary storyline, Phoebe graduates. THAT certainly didn't take long! She must be a super genius to have gotten through all of her required classes that quickly. I'm impressed!

    Watching the Good Guy/Bad Guy Cole is very interesting and again, I will say how well I think Julian McMahon plays him; both his evil and his vulnerabilities. There is a lot more to come yet.
