Halliwell Witches
stand strong beside us,
Vanquish this evil
from time and space.

In this episode, the spell was adapted because it was cast by Ava Nicolae (with Phoebe and Paige helping her).


To Call Upon Our Ancestors[]


Paige, Ava and Phoebe casting the spell.

Ava Nicolae adapted the To Call Upon Our Ancestors spell in the Book of Shadows, replacing the names of the Halliwell witches with those of the Nicolae Gypsies (her family). She cast it along with Phoebe and Paige to combine Gypsy magic and witchcraft. The spell summoned the spirits of Teresa, Lydia, and Ava's mother (Marina), who protected Ava, Phoebe, and Paige from Orin's power: they deflected one of his own attacks back at him, causing his vanquish.

Marina, Teresa, Lydia...
Nicolae Gypsies stand strong beside us,
Vanquish this evil from time and space.

Cree is vanquished by the potion.


Lydia was able to disappear in a smoky and fiery cloud.

Gypsy Hunter Vanquishing Potion []

Paige and Phoebe created a Gypsy Hunter vanquishing potion, helped by Lydia. When Lydia left to warn Ava in the hospital, Phoebe had a Premonition and knew where Lydia was. They went to the hospital as well, but they were too late: Lydia was killed by Cree, right when they arrived. Phoebe then threw the potion, vanquishing Cree.


  • Divination: Teresa read Phoebe's palms. She was able to see that Phoebe was a Witch with the power of Foresight, some of Phoebe's character traits and that Phoebe's power was blocked due to stress and overworking. Lydia read tea leaves to foresee Phoebe's future. Paige read Lydia's tea leaves.
  • Premonition/Clairvoyance: While holding hands, Teresa intercepted a vision that was meant for Phoebe. She saw that a Gypsy Hunter was coming for her. Phoebe later had a Premonition of Lydia being attacked by Cree and one of Ava being attacked by him. Orin developed some kind of second sight, allowing him to observe his son and the Nicolae family.
  • Energy Beam: Used by Cree to attack Teresa and Lydia and by Orin to kill a mouse. Cree later tried to attack the Charmed Ones and Lydia, but Paige orbed them out. Later he succeeded in killing Lydia.
  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Leo and Paige.
  • Optical Energy Blasts: Used by Lydia to attack Cree. Orin later used it to attack Piper, Leo, Phoebe, Paige and Ava.
  • Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper to blast Cree.
  • Floating/Levitation: Used by Phoebe to show that she could barely levitate. Used by Cree to levitate upon a wood pile.
  • Healing: Used by Leo to heal Lydia's eyes and by Wyatt to heal Piper. Leo later tried to heal Lydia, but she was dead. He also healed Phoebe after her Astral Premonition and Piper after she was shot by Orin.
  • Astral Premonition: Phoebe got an Astral Premonition of Orin killing her, her sisters and Leo.
  • Super Strength: Used by Orin to restrain Leo and throw him across the Attic.


  • Waffediyok - An ancient Gypsy talisman that Augments the power of the possessor.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • The WB Promo title for this episode is The Gypsy Curse.
  • When Piper got her blood drawn, as in previous episodes, her baby healed the wound left by the syringe. However, later when she was shot down by Orin, her baby didn't heal her.
  • It's explained that a witch's power can malfunction due to stress and overwork. Ironically Prue's astral projection power manifested/was triggered during a stressful moment.
  • Emmanuelle Vaugier (Ava) and Tobin Bell (Orin) both star in the movie Saw II and Saw IV.
  • Phoebe's Premonition power advances. This is the first time that Phoebe gets an Astral Premonition.
    • This is the first time that Phoebe was directly physically injured by one of her vision. She was indirectly injured through her visions via psychic links as seen in "The Good, the Bad and the Cursed".
    • This is also the last time Phoebe has a black and white premonition.
  • In this episode, Phoebe said that she has not had a premonition in months. Her last full premonition on screen was in "Womb Raider".
  • This is the only season 5 episode before "Centennial Charmed" (Cole's last appearance in season 5) that Cole does not appear in.
  • Piper does not use her Molecular Immobilization power and Paige does not use her Telekinetic Orbing power.

Continuity Errors[]

  • When Teresa reads Phoebe's palm, she draws lines on her hand, however, when Phoebe sat down at the table at the start, the lines were already there.
  • Phoebe said Ava wasn't in the attic in her premonition, which is true for the first shot of Phoebe's vision. However, when Orin fades in and the shot switches back to the sisters, Ava is clearly seen next to Paige.
  • When Phoebe is having her first astral premonition, she holds out her left hand in the kitchen but her right hand is extended in the premonition.
  • In the first scene after the credits, Phoebe walks into the kitchen saying she hopes the coffee is leaded. In "The Truth is Out There... and It Hurts", Piper said that she never makes leaded coffee, as Prue was the only one who drank it.
    • However, since that episode, it's possible that Phoebe started drinking leaded coffee. Also, Leo and Paige are now part of the family, and they too might prefer leaded coffee.
