Leo Wyatt: Human? Yes, it does. I was actually born right here in San Francisco. I had lived here all the way up till I went off to the war.
Piper Halliwell: You mean, like Vietnam?
Leo Wyatt: No. World war II. I left med school and enlisted as a medic. And I wanted to help save people, not shoot them.

There is good and bad love

Once again fans are given a treat where the sisters are granted each other's powers and learn how to use them. Leo is the center of attention as he tries to be a guardian Angel to a woman plagued by evil. Even answering a few questions left unanswered. The comedy boys are ever present as the sisters have mishaps using their new found ability. The sweet moments are spent between Leo and Piper as they express suppressed feelings and each an understanding.

Lisa Kelly gave a great performance and left a lasting impression. Her portrayal was so vulnerable that I wanted to take her in my arms and comfort her myself. Michael Trucco seemed born to play the aggressor and if I didn't know he was an actor I'd believe he was out of his mind.

The finale actually feels like the whole episode came full circle and well rounded. The music, costumes and scenery provided a great hour of television.
