Did You Know?


When Phoebe and Paige revisit Piper and Leo's wedding, at some point Cole asks past Phoebe if she's ok. (To which she lightly responds "Oh yes.) This snippet was not present in the season 3 episode "Just Harried" from which this particular flashback came from and is likely extra footage that did not air. See more »


When Piper used Leo's power for the 1st time and healed him, he says lets go and orbs out of the attic but when the original one it would have to have been Piper who orbed, and she would not know how. But, when this really took place, no one orbed, they walked/leaned down the stairs. See more »


Leo Wyatt: Piper, what are you doing? You can't freeze the shrink, we're on the clock!
Piper Halliwell: Forget the clock we are gonna need a calender cause this is gonna take months.

The cat's out of the bag !
27 June 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Finally ! There were two little things that bugged me this last season : 1) where did the Halliwells' cat go ? 2) Why hadn't anyone tried to learn a bit more about it, especially in a house filled with witches that supposedly know their own myths ? While I feel that Kit the cat ought to have been involved in more episodes, especially as it features in ALL the beginning credits, this one settles the question once and for all.

Apart from that, this is an average episode. All the parts involving Paige and Phoebe revisiting the past are rather nicely done, although the quality of the picture is clearly inferior in earlier seasons. Anyway, it is really cool to see everybody looking so young and behaving slightly differently. Besides, the editing manages to leave Prue out of every shot without being too obvious about it. It is too bad they couldn't get Paige to really see, maybe even meet Prue. On the other hand, the pretext leading to Paige and Phoebe's little trip down memory lane feels very contrived. Piper and Leo may have had a few spats, but nothing ever suggested that their couple was on the verge of imploding. As for their session with the shrink, it is a bare shell of a pretext, since the poor guy barely says three sentences while they alternatively reminisce and freeze him. It is even less interesting since it never gets any proper resolution. So the basic idea for this episode was good and had potential, but its realization spoils it.
