The Book of Shadows

To Call a Lost Witch

Power of the witches rise
Course unseen across the skies
Come to us who call you near
Come to us and settle here.


To Hide Someone from the Angel of Death

After the Angel of Death told her that he was about to take Leo away, Piper created and cast this spell to hide her husband from him. The spell made every man in San Francisco look like Leo.

Hide him from sight,
so I might fight
ignore which leaves bereft,
my husband from the Angel of Death.

To Summon an Angel of Destiny

After the Angel of Death, an Elder and an Avatar said there was a bigger reason why Leo had to die, Piper convinced her sisters to summon the Angel of Destiny. That way, they could find out why Leo had to die.

Power of Three,
we summon thee
and call to us
the Angel of Destiny

Notes and Trivia

  • This is Rose McGowan's 100th episode.
  • This is Brian Krause's last episode until the final two episodes of the series.
    • At the time of writing, it was uncertain whether budget would allow of Brian Krause to return to Charmed, although, Brad Kern made it clear he wanted Brian Krause to return for the finale. Because of this uncertainty, the cast and crew threw Brian a farewell party after the filming of this episode.
    • Brad Kern revealed that he re-worked the budget for Season 8 and a large number of producers and crew members took a pay-cut to allow for Brian Krause to be featured in Season 8.
    • Brad Kern also mentions in this episode's commentary that they wanted to send Brian's character off with a big bang so they found a way of honoring him by having there be multiple Leos after Piper casts the spell to hide her husband from the Angel of Death.
  • Simon Templeman reprises his role for the third time as the Angel of Death, after first appearing in "Death Takes a Halliwell" and "Styx Feet Under".
  • When Piper explains to Paige that she saw the Angel of Death, Paige makes a reference to Arthur Casey, an Innocent who was taken away by the Angel in "Styx Feet Under".
  • This is the first and last time the manor's garage is prominently featured. While never mentioned before, a shot of the garage can be seen in "House Call", when Piper casts a spell erasing the manor.
