Notes and Trivia Edit

This is the first time Paige turns evil, following behind the Charmed Ones' history of turning evil a few times.

Although the spell is edited this episode, this is the second time the "To Exchange Powers" spell has been used in the series. The first was "Love's A Witch".

Prue receives a hint of her telepathy being advanced.

This is the first episode when the Charmed Ones learn of the Source's seer, but do not know their name.

Quotes Edit

Prue: You know, maybe we shouldn't go there anymore.

Piper: You were the one who ordered the cake.

Prue: But you were the one who blew it up! Did you see everyone's faces?

Piper: Did you see the face of the waiter? Luckily, I froze the room and made it seem like the cake had fallen and splattered everywhere.

Piper: Thank you, Paige. I know we will find him.

Prue: We always have.

The Angel of Death: Only this time it's different.

Piper: Hey, buddy! Would it kill you to be a little encouraging instead of having a deathly mind?

Paige: I want to stop evil. Think about this, you guys. When I take out all the darklighters, the world will be less evil and allow us to take out the rest of the evil out here.

The Angel of Death: That's not possible. Evil will always be out there. You can't stop them all.
