To Summon a Nexus

Natum Adai Necral,
Daya Intay Layok!

Shortened Woogyman Spell

I am light,
I am one too strong to fight.
So go away and leave my sight,
And take with you this endless night.


  • Paige made several vanquishing potions for Craven's tribe.


  • Shimmering: Type of Teleportation used by Craven and his tribe.
  • Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper in an attempt to blow up Craven (he shimmered out, so she blew up something in attic). She also blew up two members of his tribe in the conservatory and she opened the doll house by 'blowing up' a place in the conservatory. She also blasted the pages of the Book of Shadows.
  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige and Wyatt.
  • Flaming: Type of Teleportation used by Zankou.
  • Shrinking: Used by Wyatt to shrink his parents.
  • Projection: Used by Wyatt to lock his parents in the doll house.
  • Telekinesis: Used by Zankou to prevent himself from getting hit by Paige's potions and to throw Phoebe and Paige out of the Manor.
  • Force Field: Wyatt placed a force field around the doll house to protect his parents.
  • Energy Ball: Used by Zankou to threaten Phoebe and Paige, to attack Leo and to vanquish Craven.
  • Shadow Blasts: Used by Leo to attack Zankou and to vanquish two demons.


  • Scrying Crystal - a magical pendant used for scrying. Paige scried for Craven's tribe after he attacked Piper and Leo (not seen). She also said she scried for Piper and Leo, but was unable to find them. Piper made the crystal at Magic School float and drop on the map at Prescott Street, to let them know she was in the house.
  • Doll House - a mini replica of the Manor. Wyatt played with it and he trapped Piper and Leo in it, after he shrunk them.

Notes and Trivia

Cultural References

  • The title is a reference to the movie "Die Hard".


  • The doll house isn't actually a complete replica, as the exterior is different and the conservatory is shown to be in a different place.
  • When shrunk, Piper and Leo reach the book it is open at the Demonic Sorcerers page. When it is seen again, it is open on the Deflection page.
  • Zankou smashed the cell phone Elise gave Phoebe, but when Phoebe is back at the Mirror she has the phone again and uses it to talk to Elise.

Continuity Errors

  • Paige says to Phoebe that scrying is witch to witch stuff but in “Cat House”, the warlock is seen scrying. Also in “Y Tu Mummy Tambien” Jeric is seen scrying. Leo can even be seen scrying in many episodes.


Behind the Scenes


(Jordan approaches Phoebe.)
Jordan: First, my teacup. Now he's on my computer.
Phoebe: You know what? Isn't this kind of obvious?
Jordan: What?
Phoebe: He likes you. (They look over at the man sitting at his desk and the man winks. The fashion editor walks away.) Any other questions? No. Okay. I will be in my office, in a meeting. (Phoebe walks back into her office.) Can you believe those guys?
Paige: At least they're not pre-pubescent.

Piper: (from inside box) What are they doing?
Demon: They're stalling.
Craven: Just kill them and evil will control the Nexus this time.
Paige: This time? What do you mean? You've tried before?
Phoebe: I bet they lost some demons too. Yeah, we've had some experience with the Nexus.
Craven: They're lying.
Zankou: No. I read Piper's diary. I guess I'll need to make her big again for you to do this.

(When Wyatt traps Piper and Leo in the dollhouse.)
Leo: What just happened?
Piper: Uh-oh. (in high-pitched voice) Wyatt. (moments later) Wyatt, let us out of here.
Leo: Yeah, we know you were only trying to help, but daddy needs to get to the hospital, but...
Piper: Shhh! You're just gonna scare him. That's probably why he put us here in the first place; to protect us.
Leo: Great. We're supposed to be protecting him.
Piper: (sigh) Okay. Let me handle Wyatt. This requires a mother's touch... WYATT MATTHEW HALLIWELL! YOU WILL STOP THIS NONSENSE RIGHT NOW!
Leo: Wow, first time you used his full name.
Piper: Well it sounds better when I'm scolding him.
