Storyline

Leo is shot by the arrow of dark lighter Alec who is obsessed by his charge, and ask the sisters to help protect them as he is being targeted by the dark lighter. Piper casts a spell to swap her powers with Leo's so she can heal him but the spell also causes Prue and Phoebe's powers to swap. Piper fails to heal Leo because she can't find what triggers his powers. Piper and Prue ultimately find the better way to kill Alec and save Leo. Meanwhile Andy leaves his job to help protect Prue's secret from being exposed by an Internal Affairs investigation, headed by one "Inspector Rodriguez". Written by Arturo Domínguez, edited by Rosie

Swapping Powers
1 February 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While protecting the human and future white lighter Daisy, Leo is wounded by a poisoned arrow shot by the dark lighter Alec, who wants to seduce Daisy to procreate evil. Leo asks the Halliwell sisters to protect Daisy, and Piper casts a spell to swap the healing powers of Leo with hers, but accidentally Prue and Phoebe also switches their powers. The sisters have difficulties to handle their new acquired abilities, and Piper is unable to trigger the healing power. Meanwhile, Andy is having troubles with the Internal Affairs protecting Prue, and he is temporarily suspended from his duties.

"Love Hurts" is an excellent episode of "Charmed", presenting action, romance and comedy in adequate doses. Phoebe, as usual, has some of the best lines, such as when she says that problems are for Mondays mornings; or when she questions Prue and tells that she is not the yellow pages of innocents. When Prue says to Andy "Welcome to my world" is also great. In the end, the lesson that the pleasant power of love heals, while the painful power of hate kills. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Amor Dói" ("Love Hurts")
