Magical Notes[]

Book of Shadows[]

The Kevmay[]


The Kevmay entry.

Demons that
can incinerate human
flesh with their eyes.
You will recognize
the Kevmay by their
glowing eyes, and
considerable stature,
lower level demons,
they attack randomly
and work alone.

The Furies[]

Like their mythic ancestors,
these demonic women act
as judge, jury and executioner
to anyone they consider an
"evil doer".
They disable victims with their
sharp talons and kill with
poisonous smoke.
Note: when inhaled by a good
witch, the smoke seeks out
a portal of unexpressed fury.
It then causes the fury to
build consuming the witch's
humanity and ultimately
turning her into a Fury.


Instant Karma Spell[]

To make a demon feel
the pain he inflicts.
Let cruelty, pain
And evil ways
Follow this villain
Through all his days
Reverse the torment he creates
To turn on him
A crueler fate

Vanishing Spell[]

Let the Object
of Objection
Become but
a Dream
As I cause
the Seen
to be Unseen

To Promote Compromise[]

These words
Will travel
Through the minds
Of stubborn parties
And unbind
The thoughts too rigid
To be kind
A compromise
They'll dis-entwine

To Call A Lost Sister[]

An adapted version of the "To Call a Lost Witch" spell to find Piper.

Power of the sisters rise
Course unseen across the skies
Come to us who call you near
Come to us and settle here
Blood to blood, I summon thee
Blood to blood, return to me.

Phoebe Halliwell's General Reversal Spell[]

When Paige discovered the Book of Shadows, she became fascinated with all of the spells inside. She began casting spell after spell, and with the issue of personal gain, some of them backfired; one being the Instant Karma Spell. To reverse this magic spell, Phoebe wrote it on paper and burnt it as she created this spell:

Guided spirits,
hear our plea,
Annul this magic,
Let it be.


  • Audible Inundation: Used by the Furies to force evil doers to hear the cries of their former victims.
  • Energy Ball: Used by Cole to vanquish the Furies and to hinder Piper from attacking an innocent.
  • Healing: Used by Leo to heal Donnie.
  • Levitation: Used by Phoebe to fight the Furies.
  • Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper on the Kevmay, the warehouse door, the Furies (it blew up a car behind them as they were immune to it) and Leo.
  • Reconstitution: Used by Leo to reconstitute.
  • Molecular Immobilization: Used by Piper during a failed assault on the Furies.
  • Orbing: Used by Paige and Leo to teleport.
  • Pyrokinesis: Used by the Kevmay against Piper.
  • Shimmering: Used by Cole to teleport.
  • Smoke Secretion: Used by the Furies to infect Piper and kill innocents.
  • Smoking: Used by the Furies (and Piper when she became one) to teleport.
  • Super Strength: Used by the Furies during all of their battles.
  • Telekinetic Orbing: Used by Paige on a knife, on a lamp, and the Book of Shadows. She also used it accidentally to Orb Donnie's wig to her hand.



Paige is "busted" after using her powers for personal gain

  • Exposure - Anything that could possibly prove the existence of magic to the mortal world is called "exposure". Paige nearly exposed herself as a witch after casting the Instant Karma Spell on Donnie.
  • Personal Gain - considered to be a serious breach of the Wiccan Rede. It is a term that describes a witch using her powers for personal desires, rather than using them to protect the innocent. Paige Matthews broke this rule, and as a result, received enlarged breasts.
  • Karma - The simple universal law of cause and effect that says every thought, word, and act carries energy into the world and affects one's present reality. Neither judge or jury, it can also refer to the work we have ahead of us, which includes lessons from both one's past and present lives. Paige Matthews cast the instant karma spell on Donnie, and as a result, all of the sexual abuse he had done in the office came back to bite him in the butt, literally.

Paige orbs an Athame.

  • Athame - A double edged ceremonial knife that Witches often use to direct energies in their daily practices and rituals. Paige Matthews orbed an athame to her side after it was decided that Cole's blood would be used to Summon the Furies.
  • Scrying Crystal - A magical pendant used for scrying. Piper scryed for random evil in San Francisco. Phoebe and Paige later used the scrying crystal to locate Piper, but were unable to do so because Piper was no longer a witch.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • This is the first episode to feature the new version of the Opening Credits. Alyssa Milano is billed first, followed by Rose McGowan and Holly Marie Combs. Holly is credited "and Holly Marie Combs as Piper" (by her request) so that she is recognized as being as important a cast member as Alyssa Milano though being billed third.
  • As well as the sisters getting new title clips Brian, Julian and Dorian all get new title clips; making this the first time that every actor in the main cast is given a new title clip. This would only occur once more in the series; at the start of Season 7.
  • Also in the new opening credits, power clips are no longer used before the cast member's name clip, instead appearing in succession after each cast member is credited.
  • Along with "Power Outage" and "The Importance of Being Phoebe", Phoebe uses her levitation power three times, the most in any one episode.
  • This episode reveals that the Book of Shadows cannot be photocopied.
  • This is the third episode in which Piper becomes evil.
  • Rose mentioned on an interview that one of the balloons that was making Paige's breasts enlarged in this episode burst while filming.
  • This episode scored 5.0 million viewers.
  • In "Oh, Henry", Piper says that they'll have to distract that big scary demon, which is identical to this episode, where she referred to the Kevmay in the same way.
  • At the end of this episode, Piper finally acknowledges Paige as her sister.
  • The Vanishing Spell is used for the first time in this episode. Paige uses it to clear up the skin of a friend. It will be used several more times throughout the series.
  • This is the first time Piper is shown blowing up Leo. She will do this again several times.
  • Phoebe does not use her Premonition power.
  • The term "Karma" is introduced for the first time.

Cultural References[]

  • Paige's enlarged breasts are possibly a reference to Rose McGowan's role as Tatum Riley in Scream, where her character was killed due to her not being able to fit through a garage cat flap because of the size of her breasts.
  • Another possibly reference to Scream was the car Paige drove. In Scream, Tatum drove a Red Volkswagen Beetle, Paige's Car is a Green Volkswagen Beetle.

Continuity Errors[]

  • Paige says she substitutes the word "demon" with "dirt-bag" when casting the 'Instant Karma Spell'. However, as shown in the Book of Shadows, the word "demon" isn't part of the incantation, "villain" is.
  • As shown in the Book of Shadows, 'Villain' is spelled wrong. It is shown as 'Villian'.
  • While talking to Paige as she was "busted", Phoebe's hair is wavy, however later in the car, it's straight.
  • When Piper turns into a Fury, she is still in her same clothes and she changes them later. However, when she changes back, her clothes are back to how they were at the start of the episode.
  • When Piper blasted the warehouse door, it was obviously a dummy being blown away, instead of Cole.
  • When Piper and the other Furies arrive at the manor, Phoebe attacks two of them, but it's obviously Alyssa's stunt double.
  • When Paige is driving and Phoebe is looking through the Book of Shadows to undo the karma spell, all the visible pages are blank (almost all left-side).
  • During the fight scene between the sisters and fury-Piper, a split second before Piper sends Phoebe flying into the wardrobe, she's telling Piper "...just admit it", but if you listen carefully you'll notice that Phoebe finishes her line right after Piper hits her. Also, when Piper is shown again after Paige gains her attention, it's clear that the scene has been cut and that Holly was waiting for the next shoot to get back to her pose.
  • When Piper attacks Paige, Paige orbs out and orbs back into a different place. However, in future episodes, she is unable to orb from one place to another (until "The Three Faces of Phoebe").
