Magical Notes

Book of Shadows

SlaveKing

The entry in the Book.

The Slave King

Cruel even by Underworld standards, The Slave King
had subjected a lesser demon species to do his bidding
for centuries. Surrounded by his demonic court, his
word is law. Suffering by the thousands,
death is the only escape
his slaves can hope for.

Fairies

Bos-8x20-fairies

The entry in the Book.

The mystical fey that inhabit the enchanted
forests of the magical realms. These flighty pranksters
can only be seen by combining the spells,
To See What Can't Be Seen,
To Cultivate Innocence,
and
The Power of Three Spell.

To Call a Lost Witch

Power of the Witches rise
course unseen across the skies.
Come to us who call you near
Come to us, and settle here.

Spells

To Make a Muse Visible

Five of his parolees had job interviews the next day and they asked Henry to write letters of recommendation for them. Henry said he wasn't a good writer and was afraid he had to cancel his date that night with Paige. Paige then cast this spell to ask a muse to give Henry some inspiration, because she wanted to tell him she was a witch on that date. It's a shorter version of the spell Phoebe created in Muse to My Ears.

Being of Creativity,
Show yourself now to me.

To Exchange Bodies

When the Charmed Ones were all three trapped in the doll house, Patra, Pilar and Phoenix came to the Manor to destroy it. Billie cast this spell before they could destroy it. After Patra, Pilar and Phoenix were captured in the doll house, Piper blew it up. This is an altered version of the To Exchange Power spell introduced in Love Hurts.

What theirs is yours
What yours is theirs,
I offer up this gift to share
Switch the bodies through the air.

Potions

Powers

  • Energy Ball: Used by a demon at Magic School to attack Pilar (shapeshifted into Piper).
  • Telekinetic Orbing: Used by Patra (shapeshifted into Paige) to deviate the demon's energy ball. Paige used it to orb the Book of Shadows to her and to orb a pointy rock closer to her.
  • Molecular Combustion: Used by Pilar (shapeshifted into Piper) to blow up the demon. Piper used it to blast Zakal and Savard and then to destroy the doll house with Pilar, Phoenix and Patra inside
  • Shapeshifting: Used by Pilar, Phoenix and Patra to shapeshift into the Charmed Ones.
  • Fading: Type of Teleportation used by Patra, Pilar and Phoenix.
  • Shimmering: Type of Teleportation used by Savard.
  • Flight: Used by the Fairy to fly.
  • Sleep Induction: Used by Savard to put Phoebe and Paige to sleep.
  • Shrinking: Used by Savard to shrink Phoebe, Paige and Piper.
  • Apportation: Used by Phoenix (shapeshifted into Phoebe) to apport mandrake root.
  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige.

  • Fireball: Used by Pilar, Patra and Phoenix to attack the Charmed Ones and Billie.
  • Photokinesis: Used by Paige to show Henry she's a witch.

Artifacts

  • 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.
  • Doll House: A magical replica of the Manor. Savard trapped the shrunken Charmed Ones inside of it. Piper blew it up to prevent them from ever getting trapped in it again.
  • Spirit Board: A device used to contact the spiritual world and other people.
  • Billie used her modern way of scrying to scry for Christy.

Notes and Trivia

  • The destruction of the dollhouse in this episode foreshadows the events of Kill Billie: Vol. 2: Paige, Phoebe, and Christy die when the manor explodes in a similar manner.
    • Paige saying "You wanted to live like us, now you get to die like us." refers to how Pilar tried to blow up the doll house using Piper's power. It also appears to foreshadow the Manor being blown up in Kill Billie: Vol. 2
  • This is the first episode since "Apocalypse, Not" that the spirit board is used. It is also the last time.
  • This episode is similar to "The Power of Three Blondes", where evil witches steal the identities and later the powers of the Charmed Ones in order to gain access to The Power of Three.
  • When Paige asks Phoebe for help on how to reveal she is a witch, Phoebe replies "Well, hope he doesn't faint." Both Jason and Dex fainted when Phoebe revealed she was a witch.
  • Paige expresses to Piper the difficulties of telling Henry she's a witch. Piper says "Wait until you have to explain demons to him." which foreshadows the next episode where Paige draws little stick figure demons for Henry.
  • The music in the beginning where the "Charmed Ones" are fighting a demon, is the same music used in "Wrestling with Demons", when Phoebe and Prue were fighting the demon wrestlers.
  • This is the second time that Piper has been trapped inside the dollhouse and her third time shrunk, while it is Phoebe and Paige's second time to get shrunk after "Size Matters".
  • When the female demons appear in the cave after Savard has been vanquished, if you look carefully at the cave wall behind them, you can see a couple of photos amongst the papers. One is of Phoebe from Season 1, and the other is what looks like Piper from Season 3.
  • In this episode, Paige displays the power of Photokinesis for the first and only time.
  • Pilar, Phoenix, and Patra talk about these items; Genie's bottle ("I Dream of Phoebe"), Excalibur ("Sword and the City") and the Doll House ("Scry Hard").
  • Pilar revealed that they gained access to the Charmed Ones powers by mixing their blood with that of the sisters, the same method used by Dr. Curtis Williamson in "Astral Monkey".
  • Rose McGowan was sick while filming this episode. You can hear her hoarse voice throughout.

Cultural References

  • The title is possibly a reference to the 1984 film "Repo Man". A repo man is a person who reclaims purchases when a buyer cannot pay for them.

Glitches

  • When the fairy comes from the Book, the image disappears, but later (when the fairy is still there) the image has appeared again.
  • After kicking Billie out of the manor, the female demons shapeshift back into themselves. At first, there is only a white candle on the table, though three potion vials are there in the next shot.

Continuity Errors

  • Pilar, Phoenix, and Patra plan to use the Doll House to tap into their powers because the house itself is powerful and that's where the Charmed power comes from. However, it was never the house itself, it was the Nexus on which the house is built and they destroyed the Nexus in "Something Wicca This Way Goes...?".
