Brain Washed by The Source
7 May 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

"Brain Drain" is one of the best episodes of "Charmed". With Cole and Leo, the Halliwell sisters face the evil The Source in an excellent story. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Lavagem Cerebral" ("Brain Wash")
