Celerity Demons

Celerity Demons are powerful beings
who can move at the speed of light
and feed off of lesser demons.
Proud, solitary, aggressive and
with quickness faster than human
sight they are very difficult to both
find and fight.
However, destroying one is
possible...Boil mandrake root,
hummingbird wings, eye of newt and
Sagan's Strings.

Notes and Trivia

Cultural References

  • The title is a reference to the jazz song "Someone to Watch Over Me", which was originally composed in 1926 and has been covered by many artists.
  • Phoebe says "We're not Brody's Angels", a reference to the TV series "Charlie's Angels", which has also been made into two movies with the same name. Piper previously made a similar comment about Leo in the episode "The Devil's Music".

Continuity Errors

  • Piper knows Sarpedon's name when discussing him kidnapping Kyle. However, he didn't mention his name in front of the sisters and he only features in the Book of Shadows on the Celerity Demons page, with no mention of any of their names.
  • On the tombstone that Alpha shows Leo, Paige's name is listed under "Halliwell" instead of Matthews.
  • As Piper lies dead near the end of the episode, her arms are above her head and set apart from each other. However, Leo revives her, her arms are placed together supporting her head.
  • When Piper and Phoebe are being brought back to life by Leo, Piper has the weapon that killed her stuck in her stomach, then the next shot, it's gone.
  • In Centennial Charmed, the combination of a power and a spell was required for Alpha to turn Cole into an Avatar, however in this episode he achieved so solely through power granting, without the use of the spell.
