When the Blonde Ones call for the Charmed Ones' powers, shouldn't Mitzy have gained Prue's telekinesis power? Paige's orbing comes from her Whitelighter side which is why she kept it, but her tele-orbing comes from Prue's power, so therefore Mitzy should have had telekinesis.
When Mabel (as Piper) comes into her bedroom with the bartender, Leo is sitting there with Wyatt. He then tells "Piper" that her behavior is unacceptable and that she knows he occasionally visit the nursery at night. However, putting aside the fact that it wasn't really Piper, what right does Leo have to have said any of that? He wasn't sitting in the nursery he was sitting in Piper's bedroom and considering he left her to become an Elder, he was out of line not only being there but calling her unfit even if it was really Piper with the bartender!
At the very beginning of the episode we can see the Stillman sisters looking like the charmed ones. When they get back to their true look, everything stays the same except their body. Anyway, the little one that plays Paige loses a pink plush in her hair in the way.
The scene when Phoebe get home in her car is clearly a false scene. If you see closely, the car is not there, it is a car introduced in a shot of the Manor. Even when she gets out of the car, the manor is not shown.
Why did Paige's phone ring about the revolt if she was there running it? Also when Paige, Piper and Phoebe use the spell to call their powers back at the end, why did it work if all their powers were stripped?
This is a second episode is a row where the loss of memory is key to the story plot.
When the three blonds fight about the powers, the audience see the bag of pretzels. Rolds Gold.
Since the book moved away from Phoebe and Paige after the Stillman sisters stole their identities, shouldn't it have rejected them until they got their identities back? Instead, the book accepts being touched and read by the Halliwell sisters at the end of the episode when they regain their powers. The reason is that the fight made the Power of Three break (like in a season 3 episode) and as the book's magic is bound to the Power of Three it's broken as well leaving it unprotected.
It seems impossible that 3 punches knocked out the Stillman sisters. Phoebe's punch to one of the sisters looked powerful enough, but when Piper walked around one of the sisters and punches her, she doesn't seem to use any force at all and yet the other sisters fall to the floor.
When the real Charmed Ones don't have their powers and the blonde ones do, Piper is about to shoot an arrow at them while Phoebe and Paige get weapons. Piper shoots the arrow and one of the blond sisters freezes it. This means that the whole room is frozen but for about a second when Phoebe and Paige are in view, they continue moving briefly, then finally freeze.
TRIVIA: Foreshadowing? Chris alludes to Piper that he's known her a long time, and she's confused by that since she's only known him for a month. Also when fake Phoebe attempts to kiss him, he's very reluctant. These are early signs to Chris' true identity.
TRIVIA: The Triquetra does not split into three ovals in this episode, like in "Power Outage". This time, the Triquetra splits and disappears from the book.
The scene where Phoebe and Paige are in the manor making the vanquishing potion for the gremlins, they both get a phone call. It goes to Phoebe & she's holding her cell in her right hand but then it turns to Paige for a second then back to Phoebe who then has the phone in her left. This occurs a couple more times switching it from her right and left hands.
If it was that easy to steal the Charmed Ones' identities, then why haven't past demons/warlocks tried it before?
When the Stillman sisters steal the Charmed Ones' power, Mabel attacks Piper with Piper's powers and Piper seriously injures her leg - yet later she can run and walk easily.
The last time they used the spell to get back their powers Prue, Piper and Phoebe gave the demon something to drink in order for the spell to work. How come they didn't prepare that to give it to the evil sisters?
The sequence where the blondes come back to the Halliwell manor doesn't make any sense - Margo is leading a union strike and Paige is there at the same time confronting a security guard. Then all three Stillmans get back to the manor and have a lengthy conversation and flirt with Chris. Then we see Paige being tossed out by a guard at the union strike only a few seconds after she met the guy.
They digitally blur out Milano's stunt double's face when she gets tossed out of the newspaper - presumably because they didn't have a stunt double with Alyssa's new hair-do yet that looks enough like her to pass without the digital effect.
The spell used to transfer the power from the Halliwells to the Stillmans states "Course unseen across the skies" but...we see the glowing energy effect. Shouldn't it be unseen?
When the Blonde Ones took the Power of Three, the powers went straight across to the opposite witch, not by seniority. ie: Piper's powers flowed into Margo. However, the Blondes receive the powers in the proper age order and when they are taken back, the powers match up: ie, the powers went from Margo to Paige.
If Chris wanted to find out who the real sisters were, he should have asked a question only the true Halliwells would know: "What is the name of their fourth sister, what are her powers, and why doesn't she live in the manor anymore?" Considering that the Stillmans were always mixing up their information about the sister's powers and what they did, it's a good probability that they wouldn't even know about Prue, so they'd get the question wrong.
How come Mitzy didn't bleed or anything after Phoebe punched her? No black eye, no broken nose, nothing? For that matter how did one punch/kick each from the Halliwell sisters knock out all three of the Stillman sisters cold?
How did all three of the blondes suddenly get back to the manor so quickly when they were all in three different places seconds before, after the girls were drawn out of the house?
The spell to call for a witch's power, which the blondes used first requires the victims to drink a special potion as was seen in "How to make A Quilt Out Of Americans", but the potion wasn't used here at all.
When Cryto stole the Charmed Ones' power, he only stole their powers he didn't "de-witch" them. They were still immune to the freezing - yet, in this episode the spell completely drained them of their witch status. This seems to be confused with the spell to disempower a witch which was used in the season 2 episode "That Old Black Magic" and in the season 5 episode "A Witch in Time".
Where has Grams (or at least her guidance) been lately? Remember when she used to flip exactly to the page they needed all the time? After the evil sisters tried to steal the book in the first scene, Grams should've showed Piper their page.
In the scene where Piper fires the bow at the blonde Stillman sister, she freezes it , but Phoebe moves a bit - despite her supposed to be frozen.
How did anyone know the first names of the Stillman sisters? They never said them in front of the Halliwells' or Chris.
Who put the Stillman sisters in the Book? Piper, Phoebe, and Paige obviously had no knowledge of them, and presumably neither did Prue. Unless they're a lot older than they look, they wouldn't have been enough of a nuisance to bother writing an entry on them before Grams died. Nor would they have been important enough for one of the "beyond the grave" entries that pop up occasionally. So how'd they get in there in the first place?
Coworker: I think this place is maldito - cursed.
Paige: I think I'm maldito.
Margo: Well, from where I'm standing, that seemed like a stupid thing to do. And I know a lot about stupid things!
Piper: Yeah, see, she's got us there.
Margo (disguised as Paige): Slow down there angel.
Chris: Paige, did you just call me angel?
Mitzy: Don't call me a chippy! (pushes Margo)
Margo: Don't push me! (pushes Mitzy back)
Mabel: Just shut up! (pushes the both of them and the chandelier falls) Uh-oh!
Mitzy: Not the nose please.
Piper and Phoebe are in the club talking about lunch while a bartender cleans at the bar.
Phoebe: So let's go... (moans) ...oh... oh...oh...oh...
Piper: Was that a moan?
Phoebe hits Piper, then grabs a cocktail napkin and uses it to cover her mouth as she whispers to Piper.
Phoebe glances at the bartender again.
Phoebe: That new bartender guy is checking you out.
Marble: Well check what these common witches just did. We are standing in home of the Charmed Ones. We got their powers, we got their book. And we've got blonde multi-tonal hair!
Mitzi & Margo: Oh yeah!
Mabel: There's nothing wrong with Phoebe's, Mitzy. You'll get to levitate.
Mitzy: Yeah. Six feet in the air.
Margo: Let's go, let's go! I'm dying to orb some place far away and exotic... like Fort Lauderdale!
Piper is trying to feed Wyatt.
Piper: Alright, look, Mommy'll try it. Mmm. So horrible! Wow, is that horrible.
Piper: Just don't forget a hat for those ears.
Elf Nanny: I always keep the baby warm.
Piper: I meant yours.
Jack: I have to admit, Piper, when you said that there'd be fringe benefits, you weren't kidding.
Mabel (disguised as Piper): Oh, I'm all about job satisfaction.
Chris orbs in directly in front of Piper and Phoebe.
Piper & Phoebe: No!
Phoebe: We're not demon hunting. We're going to lunch.
Chris: Hey, I am not unreasonable. We can hunt demons after lunch.
Paige: She couldn't hit the broadside of a beauty parlor. Look at that dye job.
The Stillman sisters have just stolen the Charmed Ones' powers as Piper tries to freeze them but can't.
Mabel: Lets see, what was that freaky little hand thing you did? Like this?
Mabel puts her hand out in front of her, as the table behind Piper blows up, and Piper hurtles backwards crashing into the wall, causing a wound on her leg.
Piper: Oh, I'm down!
Margo (masquerading as Paige): Everyone knows The Charmed Ones are blonde.
Paige gasps in outrage.
Phoebe walks up to Mitzy, who turns around.
Mitzy: Not the nose, please!
Phoebe: I think you have something that's mine?
Mitzy gasps and touches the diamond necklace around her neck. She removes the necklace and gives it to Phoebe.
Mitzy: Sure. It's yours. Anything you want.
Phoebe: Thank you.
Phoebe swings and hits Mitzy in the face.
Mitzy (disguised as Phoebe): We got 'em now.
Piper (mocking): Yeah, you got us now, so why don't you blow us up?
Phoebe: Piper, death bad. Life good.
Paige: Don't worry, that bimbo couldn't hit the broad side of a beauty parlor. Check out that dye job.
International Episode Titles:
Czech Republic: Tři blondýnky (Three Blondes)
France: Le pouvoir des trois blondes (The power of three blondes)
As seen in other episodes (or example in the season 7 episode The Seven Year Witch) the book that fell to the floor is not the real one. They use a false book as a prop, that has no pages and it is kind of a cartoon box, in the scene when the book has to be thrown. Tecnically, the real book could get broken doing these kind of scenes.
The WB used the promo title "Dirty Blondes" for this episode.
Paige: Demons are after the book every week.
This is an allusion to the show itself. She is talking about Charmed, from the inside and saying that it is a TV show where, every week, a demon appears and tries a new plan to get the book, their powers or their lives. It is a commont effect shown in TV shows: Make the audience realize that they are watching a TV show and that the characters don't know about it -it's called "breaking the fourth wall". The same thing happens in the episode The Bare Witch Project when Piper says "This is a family show".
Title: The Power of Three Blondes
This is a reference to the Charmed term "power of three", which is the magic that makes the Charmed Ones so powerful.
Mabel: We are Charmed and dangerous
This is a reference to the term "armed and dangerous", as well as a reference to the season four episode "Charmed and Dangerous". Plus "Charmed & Dangerous" is a 1999 movie that is about a man, tormented by beautiful women, that decides it's all a giant conspiracy of women against him. He vows he can survive entirely without them, and sets out to rescue other men from falling victim to the feminine wiles, but he soon discovers it's not as easy as he thinks.
