Goofs

The Charmed Ones travel to the future to save Phoebe from burning at the stake. There's a spell in the Book of Shadows to return to their own time, which can only be used once, and will then disappear. When they want to get back and look for the spell, while finding the Book at Bucklands, it's already gone. When they're back at the manor, still looking for ways to get out of there, we can see Prue flicking through the pages, and when the camera zooms in on the Book, the 'Return spell' is clearly visible.

The Importance of Ethics
4 February 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Halliwell sisters play a prank with their neighbor Nathanial Pratt because his dog always defecates in their sidewalk. Phoebe has a premonition of her death in 2009 executed by burning at stake and the sisters cast a spell to travel to the future. They see the destiny of each one: Prue is a wealthy workaholic businesswoman without a mate; Piper is divorced with a daughter; and Phoebe will be executed for killing a man. This incident with Phoebe provoked a witch hunting leaded by Nathanial Pratt. In the end, the sisters acknowledge the importance of ethics.

In spite of giving an important message about ethics and morality, since the sisters are not allowed to use their powers for personal advantage, this episode is only reasonable. The story is absolutely inconsistent with the fate of Prue. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Questão de Ética" ("Matter of Ethics")
