  • Phoebe tests out Destructive Potions on a chair in the attic.

  • Intuition: (through Premonition) Phoebe felt the presence of Evil in Magic School.
  • Shimmering: Type of Teleportation used by Creo and his fellow Demons.

  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige.
  • Beaming: Type of Teleportation used by Coop.
  • Hologram: Used by the Triad to show Billie Wyatt's evil future from the alternate timeline.
  • Telekinesis: In the Hologram, Wyatt flung Chris. Billie used it to fling a dagger into a Demon and to move Christy's fireball towards the Charmed Ones.

  • Sensing: Asmodeus sensed someone was coming to their room in Magic School.

  • Hovering: Used by Paige to hover whilst meditating.
  • Fading: Type of Teleportation used by a Nymph.
  • Super Strength: Used by an Ogre to knock Phoebe down.
  • Pyrokinesis: Used by Christy to create a large fireball.


  • Book of Shadows: The Halliwell Family's magical tome. In addition to spells and potion recipes, the Book of Shadows contains information on warlocks, demons, and other supernatural beings. It was created by their ancestor, Melinda Warren, and was passed down every generation.
  • Billie's Book of Shadows: Billie copied useful spells and potions from the Warren Book of Shadows, and also wrote down extensive notes about their history and the evils they fought in her own Book of Shadows.
  • Scrying Crystal: A magical pendant used for Scrying. Phoebe used it to scry for Creo.
  • Shillelagh: It appears to be a conduit of Leprechaun magic, allowing any magical being (presumably) to access the rainbow path.
  • Lust: One of the Seven Deadly Sins. Dumain infected Phoebe with it to distract her.
  • Grams's Ring: Grams's cursed ring that turns the wearer into a typical housewife.

Notes and Trivia

  • This is the last of twenty-four episodes with "witch" in the title.
  • Phoebe confesses her love for Coop in this episode.
  • This is the first time we see Paige telekinetically orb demons into a wall like Prue used to with her power.
  • This episode marks the second time Phoebe gets infected with Lust, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. The first time was in "Sin Francisco".
  • Piper is affected by Grams's Ring, similar to Phoebe in "Lost and Bound".
  • When Piper is talking to the Fairy, the empathy sound effect can be heard. This is the last time it's heard in the series.

Cultural References

  • The title of the episode is a reference to the book and film Gone with the Wind (1939).
  • Paige refers to the Triad as the "wizard behind the curtain", which is an obvious reference to The Wizard of Oz.


  • The colors on the rainbow are reversed. The color red is actually on the outside of the rainbow with the violet being on the inside.
  • After Piper is turned into a housewife, an image from the attic was used during the close up. The Book of Shadows can be seen behind her, but a second later she walks away from behind the book stand.
  • After catching Phoebe and Coop kissing, Piper goes to the Book of Shadows which is open on the Truth Spell. She flicks through a couple of pages and stops, but the page shown in the close up is the Truth Spell again.

Continuity Errors

  • Dumain says that the Witch Doctor turned Paige's inner truth into obsession. Actually the witch doctor turned her jealousy over Glen's marriage into obsession. ("House Call").
  • Grams's Ring affects Piper differently than it did with Phoebe. Phoebe slowly turned black and white, while Piper doesn't and gains Hyper Speed.


  • "I'm Not Dead" performed by P!nk
