To Contact a Sister's Spirit

Paige casts this spell, hoping it would get herself and Phoebe in contact with Piper's spirit after she and Leo got trapped in the Ghostly Plane. However, the spell instead sent Chris (who was fading away) to the plane, allowing them to communicate through him.

Sister spirit, we call to thee.
Cross on over so we may see.

Cultural References


  • Although, Chris was transparent, his shadow still appeared on the wall.
  • When Paige is talking to Piper and Leo, her hair has loose curls, however, when she walks into the kitchen with Phoebe, her hair is completely straight.
  • After the Darklighter attacks, Phoebe uses a dropper to get a sample of his blood to scry with. When she sits down, the blood is still in the dropper, but the next frame we see her in, she's still sitting, yet the dropper is empty.
  • After Phoebe falls down from the wall, Paige runs towards her, touches her sister's back and sees that she is bleeding. But before touching Phoebe, it's clearly visible that Paige's hand is painted red already and that this paint is dry not wet. Furthermore the "blood" is gone, when Paige gets into Piper's car.

Continuity Errors

  • Gideon's orbs are blue in this episode, while in most episodes, they are purple.
  • Leo mentions that Elders aren't allowed to drink, however, he shared a beer with Chris in "Soul Survivor".
