Notes and Trivia

  • Alyssa Milano is wearing the same shirt she wore in the season four premiere, "Charmed Again".
  • Phoebe discovers Cole is the Source through a premonition. While she touched Cole while he was the Source before, she was unable to get a premonition off of him because the Source protected himself. It is likely the premonition now worked because Cole's love left him vunerable, as the Seer had warned earlier.
