Notes and Trivia[]

Lady Godiva Promo

WB's promo.

  • In the WB trailer for this episode, the narrator says "Something naked this way comes", which is an obvious reference to the show's pilot "Something Wicca This Way Comes".
  • Holly Marie Combs breaks the fourth wall by saying, "Lady, keep your clothes on. This is a family show. Really."
  • The spell Duncan uses to send Lady Godiva back to her time is almost exactly the same as the spell used in "That '70s Episode" to return Prue, Piper and Phoebe to their time.
  • This is the fourth and last time that Alyssa Milano wore a blonde wig. First, as the Goddess of Love in "Oh My Goddess! Part 1 & Part 2, then as a Genie in "I Dream of Phoebe" and the third time, while disguised as a Demonatrix, in "A Wrong Day's Journey Into Right".
  • When Leslie first sees the manor, he tells Phoebe that the paper must pay better than he thought. That is the same thing Jack said to Prue when he first saw the manor in "That Old Black Magic", and Jason to Phoebe when he first saw the manor.
  • Paige officially becomes the headmistress of Magic School, which is what Phoebe saw in her vision quest in "The Legend of Sleepy Halliwell".
  • This episode marks the first appearances of Odin and Sandra, two Elders who are featured prominently in this season and the next (in Sandra's case).
  • This episode scored 4.8 million viewers.
  • At the beginning of this episode, Piper and Phoebe encounter a restaurant owner who is unwillingly to allow Piper to breastfeed Chris and Phoebe attempts to defend her rights. The ability to freely breastfeed would later become an issue that Alyssa Milano takes on wholeheartedly when she has her own children.
  • Piper does not use her Molecular Immobilization power.

Cultural References[]

  • The title is a reference to the 1999 found footage film "The Blair Witch Project".
  • Phoebe says to Lady Godiva "Thank you... for showing us you're more than a box of chocolates". This is a reference to the gourmet chocolate, which the name "Godiva" is more associated with, rather than the legend.

Continuity Errors[]

  • When looking up Lady Godiva in the alternate timeline, the Charmed Ones comment that the page on her is so small its pretty much fine print. However, the page is clearly the same as it is in the correct timeline. Additionally, since her ride never happened, it is unlikely there would be a mention of her at all.


Episode Stills[]


Piper: Lady, (referring to Lady Godiva who has stripped naked) keep your clothes on. This is a family show. Really.
