The One Where Piper Has A Lot Of Arms...
3 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode. It's not the best one but it's still very good. It's not my favorite Season Premiere, but still a good watch.

In this episode, we see Leo struggling with the fact that future Chris is gone. And tries to find Barbas. Leo and Piper go to Hindu wedding and they get transformed into Shakti and Shiva (don't think I spelt those right). Piper get's multiple hands, which was really creepy. And we find out that if they consummate their love, the world will be reborn. So they can't let that happen. Phoebe feels like she needs to take some time off work, so Elise hires a ghost writer, Leslie, who turns out to be guy. Eventually, Paige and Phoebe turn Leo and Piper back to their normal selves and they go and vanquish Barbas. I'm a little sad, because I loved Barbas quite a lot. He's been in it so much.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
