Quotes

Kyle Brody: Why haven't you left yet?
Eddie Mullen: I can't. The only way out is to end the story. Can't do that until the falcon's found.
Paige Matthews: You don't know where it is?
Eddie Mullen: No. Dan and I laid down the fundamentals at the beginning. The story's got a life of its own now.

The One Where Paige And Kyle Go Into A Book World...
10 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I liked this episode. At first I thought it was going to be boring, but it really surprised me. It is interesting though. Going into a world created in a book.

In this episode, a gnome is murdered at Magic School and Paige brings Kyle there, to help her solve the case. The gnome was deciding what books to ban from the school, and he wants to ban some really great books, by the way, and he was taken into one of the books, and then "spit out" after he was shot. A weird way to be murdered in the magic community. Kyle and Paige pick up the book, not knowing its power, and they are taken into the world. The world they are sucked into is the 1930s, where gangsters roamed everywhere. They must accomplish three things. 1. Find the original author. 2. Find the Burnese Falcon, the reason for the book. 3. Not be killed. Piper and Phoebe find the book and realize they can write things in. They can change subtle details about the plot, but only if the plot ends up being the same in the end. In the end, they find out who the authors were and Kyle and Paige save the day in the book, and are transported out of there. The one thing that confuses me, other than never seeing gangster movies, so I was already confused, is that a gnome is magical. Would bullets really kill one? Obviously the answer is yes.

Fun Fact: This is Rose McGowan's favorite episode of Charmed.

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