Notes and Trivia

  • This is the only episode to have Christy's name in the title.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Marnette Patterson as Christy Jenkins.
  • This episode marks the reappearance of The Triad (albeit in new bodies), who were last seen in season 3.
  • Paige heals Henry for the second time. The first was in "Payback's a Witch".
  • Jason Shaw reprises the role of Greg, the fireman who dated Piper during her separation from Leo during season 6.
  • The appearance of Simon Marks, another Whitelighter-Witch can be considered a minor plot hole. A relationship between witch and Whitelighter was forbidden at the time of his birth, which was the reason Paige was given up for adoption.
  • The visual and sound effects of Simon's orbing is different than any other whitelighter or whitelighter/witch on the show.
  • Piper does not use her Molecular Immobilization power and Phoebe does not use her Premonition power.

Cultural References
