How do you mean? I can understand she was the spare tire. I think Piper got really homicidal while Phoebe got selfish.
@Dragonfly82 Yes, but I personally just never really liked her
Could it be for stealing the Book Of Shadows from unknown half siblings?
@Dragonfly82 I liked the dynamic of the three original sisters, and I didnt like how she kind of like jumped into the party
I agree. Come On! What are the odds unknown half sibling coincidentally just did happened to entirely locationized in San Francisco?
I did not like how Paige stole Darryl's soul.
Honestly, the character named Emma from Black as Cole was the most honest person in the episode....as she called them out while she was overlooked as she was overacting. While had she been a Halliwelll they would had gone full Piper. (Vaya Con Leos)
For me it would be Phoebe in Seasons 3-8. Phoebe went from being the Heart of Charmed to the absolute WORST character in the show! Once she got with Cole her entire persona changed and became such a self centered person. The show would've been better later had they killed Phoebe off instead of Prue. Considering how awful the Cole storyline ended and how Phoebe's plots were the same thing every season having Prue around would've been more beneficial (especially when Phoebe ends up useless in the final two seasons) especially since she was already losing her likability during Season 3 with how she acted around Cole.
The moment she got together with Cole her moment of being the heart of the show shifts completely and Phoebe becomes a self centered character who largely prioritizes her own needs first before even deciding to do anything else.In fact I'd argue Phoebe does pretty much become the enbodiement of her past life P. Russel in Seasons 3-8 in some instances both of which started out good, but their pursuit of love turned them into darker paths. The same path she feared in earlier seasons. The episode Sight Unseen started it when she denied Cole falling into Prue's demon trap, then the episode Power Outage escalated her selfish behavior cementing her character's unfavorable change in my opinion.
Phoebe does have the higher capacity for evil, but that also doesn't excuse some of her self centered actions which were not done by evil means or of evil influences. Any of Phoebe's likable traits from earlier seasons get transferred into Paige (along with the rest of the original power of three), like her love of being a witch. Which basically becomes Paige's main trait for the last 5 seasons. Even if Phoebe does get in on the action sometimes, it's only AFTER she's decided her own priorities were first.
It also doesn't help that her obsession with Cole was more obnoxious and mean-spirited, as every time she'd act dense and defensive every time one or both of the sisters had something to disapprove of or question about him. Yet the moment Phoebe herself came to the same conclusion she'd find Cole iredeemably evil!
Then there's her shift to wanting men and babies, while this isn't a selfish thought by itself it's how Phoebe chooses to go about this that makes it annoying! She focuses on it too much to the point where her Charmed duties get sidelined in favor of it. Then there's her focus on her "love" advice column, which she treats as vastly more important than what it really was. (Which is the thing she often prioritizes above everything in dire situations) For someone who becomes a celebrity on "love" could never seem to understand the concept of love itself and never give advice that wasn't just standard "Go with your heart".. Or the fact every men she was with had to teach her the same lesson over and over as if she wasn't even able to grasp the concept.
Even when Phoebe gains empathy it did NOTHING to give her empathy. it just let her complain to people how their feelings inconvenienced her. Like constantly complaining someone's feelings are giving her a headache, or channeling other people, only to complain she's channeling their feelings, but doesn't understand the concept of what/how they feel despite being an empath. She even uses it to intrude on her sister's lives, but hates it when they do the same.
Cole did a lot to save the Charmed Ones then he was shunned by them. Actually, he was more useful than Leo.
Prue she ruins it
What do you think?
