No no no no so many effing no's with this episode.
I can't even bring myself to watch it anymore and unfortunately it's one of my favourite Phoebe episodes for season 3.
I love the bad guys, I love the little ball weapon thingo, I even like the lost and found spell. But I'm sorry.
If you want to compare Cole and Prue's next mission. Then one, Cole was born a demon, he never actually had a choice but he does have a soul, he has fallen for a human and he is (trying anyway) to embrace that. I believe Cole would've been very good if it hadn't been for Prue, Paige and eventually everyone turning completely against him no matter how good he tries to act.
This dude CHOSE to be a demon, CHOSE to attempt to kill someone, and I don't even want to say attempt - he would have killed someone if Piper didn't freeze him. That's a bit more than 'attempted' - the victim, never stood a chance. So piper freezes him that means all of a sudden "oh he didn't kill anyone so he's good" HE WANTED TO THOUGH.
And I hated that a good talking to with his mum just up and changes everything.
When did Prue become not only amazing at fighting but better than our resident martial arts practitioner. Although the wrestler guys were OTT, Prue was just more ridiculous and they made Phoebe look pretty wimpy and pathetic in my mind.
But god, no, you can completely understand why Phoebe didn't tell her sisters about Cole and as others have said a few times now - if she had of told the WHOLE story, how he spared her life once, saved it another time etc they would be a bit more understanding but no the show went for the 'drama' side instead. I found at least Piper's reaction a bit more believable - shocked but not condemning and damning.
But no, I'm sorry. Besides every single episode being Prue-centric somehow. Even effing Piper's wedding is Prue-centric, they're just ridiculously OTT for Prue.
