Any decent photo studio takes more than one picture. Also, because it's digital, he should have been able to tell that there was something funky about the picture and surely could have taken another.
The Seer foresaw her own death somewhere in the Underworld by the hands of Zankou. However, although Zankou was the one to kill her it happened in the attic. So either her premonitions weren't very accurate or the future was still subject to change. So how can they trust the premonition she shared with Phoebe?
When Paige says to Piper "I'll be there to vanquish them (the Avatars) with Kyle's potion", Piper didn't seem surprised, it was like she knew already, which is strange because nobody was told about it or knew except for Paige who was surprised herself when she found out.
TRIVIA: Oded Fehr (Zankou) is the second actor from the movie The Mummy to play a character the series. The first was Arnold Vosloo, who played a darklighter in the episode Murphy's Luck.
TRIVIA: There's a small chain of middle eastern takeout restaurants near the Warner Bros. studios in Burbank, California called Zankou Chicken. Brad Kern did not know this until he had already given Zankou this name. When the other writers found out and informed Brad Kern, a little reference was made in a few episodes later: Phoebe's line "What's the matter, Zankou... chicken?"
TRIVIA: Piper and Phoebe find out Leo is now an Avatar and Kira, the Seer is vanquished by the demon Zankou, who was previously imprisoned by the Source.
This episode marks the death of the Seer, Kira, by the hands of Zankou, who makes his first appearance.
If Paige orbed into the manor just to get some clothes, then why did she orb into the hallway, a couple of feet away from her room? Surely she would orb straight into her room, instead of making the effort of then walking all the way into her room.
The double doors which are seen at the beginning when Piper and Leo are getting the family portrait photo taken, it is exactly the same doors as Phoebe's work and from the police station. You would think that different doors could be used after 7 years.
Hasn't Paige learned her lesson? The last time she turned her back on her sisters to be with a boyfriend, he turned her evil. Surely she would take this time into consideration.
The Seer is looking through a photo album in the attic in this episode, and alot of the pictures are of actual events that happened in episodes, like one from "Baby's First Demon". These pictures contain everyone in the family, and there was no camera put on a timer anywhere in the episodes, so who took the pictures?
The Seer received a premonition of her own death at the hands of Zankou, so why didn't she shimmer out when Zankou attacked? Leo mentioned that she could shimmer, when he first went to save her from the Underworld.
After Inspector Sheridan is shown in a coma and Phoebe and Kira are talking to Leo, Leo points at them as he is leaving in a tight frame shot. Then when the camera is pulled out and Leo is orbing away, his arm is dropping and it is his left hand that he was pointing with.
How the heck did Piper get the big family-sized portrait of herself, Leo, and the boys on the same day (if not the same afternoon) as when it was taken? No photo studio develops that quick.
Paige (to Kyle): I took your advice and made a home cooked meal...even though I can't cook.
Zankou: Hello, Sugar.
Seer: Did I call you that ever? What I meant to say was, "Hello, swirling particles of scum".
Piper: Why in the hell would a powerful demon wanna be made human?
Seer: Exactly, hell being the operative word. As in I live there and it sucks.
Phoebe: What I don't get is why you want to be human. I mean, did the bad stuff just start to get to you?
Seer: No, the good stuff did...Being a demon is about feeding the endless emptiness. And I'm sick of it. I long for the subtle notes in between.
(Paige comes out of her bedroom.)
Phoebe: How's it going in there?
Paige: Not loving the demon interruptus.
Leo (about the Elders): They want us to protect a demon.
Piper: They want us to do what?
Leo: They want us to protect a demon, just until...
Piper: Yeah, no, I heard you the first time. And the answer is absolutely not! This is how things spiral out of control.
Phoebe: There's a downside to being able to feel things sometimes.
Seer: Well, I'd still take good that's not always good over bad that's never good.
Seer (about Darryl): Go easy on him. His wife's had him sleeping on the couch all week.
Darryl: How does she know that?
Phoebe: Seer. Get it? She sees things.
Phoebe (about the Avatars): Is it possible that they're good? Is it really possible?
Seer: It's a smart question... one I'm sure to answer for you once I get my labpoo and the ability to feel.
Leo: I know the Avatars are good... because I'm an Avatar.
Piper: What?! That's insane! What does that mean?
Leo: Look, I'm the same old Leo.
Piper: Only ... not! Is this how you went from psycho crazy guy to happy-happy guy? Because you became an Avatar?
Leo: Everybody has to come to the truth in their own time.
Piper: Okay, Leo, you know what? Don't guru-talk me, because you are in far too much trouble if you think...
Seer (interrupts): Okay.
Piper: Even you made the Avatar future seem threatening.
Seer: Well, duh. If I made it sound peachy, you wouldn't have helped me.
Paige and Phoebe see the Seer in the house.
Phoebe: Paige, demon, no active powers, do something!
Paige orbs a mirror towards the Seer, but the Seer moves and misses it. The mirror breaks instead.
Seer: Is that my bad luck or yours?
Seer: Furies. Toxic. Heavy in the 'ick'. Hate me. Grimlocks. Heavy on the 'grim'. Hate me.
Seer: So why did the Elders tell you to come and get me? They know we had a thing?
Leo: We didn't have a thing.
Seer: Mmm. Trying to put that ugly past behind you. I get it.
While looking through the photo album, Phoebe keeps touching to get a premonition.
Seer: Oh, that's it right there. If you're not going to get a premonition, you can at least try and untie that knot.
Leo: Look, what if I personally guarantee you get what you want?
Seer: Oh, I'm supposed to trust you now?
Phoebe (after she comes out of her vision of the Seer's death): I saw the most beautiful thing ever... and the most terrible.
Phoebe is smiling during her vision of utopia.
Piper (to Leo): She's smiling. Right?
Seer (to Leo): That surly one's your wife?
Seer: Just don't let him eat the eggplant!
Piper: What's wrong with my eggplant?
Phoebe: Forget happy endings, we can't even have happy beginnings.
Phoebe: Are those my earrings?
Seer: Yeah. Sorry. They were calling out to me.
Paige orbs a plant towards the Seer.
Seer (while running away) Whaaa! Leo a little help please!
Phoebe: Did she just call for Leo?
Phoebe: My little girl... oh, gosh, she was so cute.
Seer: Yeah. Not normally big on the rug rats, but she was cute.
Seer: I came back, didn't I?
Leo: Because you need us.
Phoebe: And because she likes us.
Seer: Everything is going to be great. And later tonight, everything's going to be really, really great.
Paige (smiles): Really?
Paige: I'm dressed. I'm not changing. Go away.
Phoebe's phone rings.
Phoebe: Oh, phone! You're good.
