Notes and Trivia[]

BFD 01

  • The WB used the promo title Little Angel.
  • This is the fifth episode with the word demon in the title.
  • At the end of this episode, Piper decides on a name for the baby: "Wyatt Matthew Halliwell". Wyatt after his father, "Matthew" after his aunt Paige and "Halliwell", as agreed on by Piper and Leo, because it's respected in the magical community.
    • Other names considered were Peter (in keeping the "P" tradition), Prudence Melinda (the name Piper and Leo wanted to name their daughter, Potter (after Harry Potter), and Jason (after Jason Dean, Phoebe's new boss and love interest).

  • Eric Dane makes his first appearance as Jason Dean.
  • This is the first of two appearances Grace Zabriskie would make as The Crone.

Cultural References[]
