Trivia

According to the series' Stunt Coordinator in the Charmed season eight DVD bonus features, the effect of Prue's telekinesis destroying the attic in this episode was accomplished by rigging every object in the room to strings which were then tied to a Chevy Suburban truck. When Prue flicks her hand on camera the driver is cued to accelerate the truck on the other side of the attic window. This caused all the tied objects to crash through both the attic window and wall to dramatic effect. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Nathaniel Pratt: I love the smell of burnt witch in the morning.
Phoebe Halliwell: At least I'm paying for my crime. There'll come a day where you have to pay for yours too.
Nathaniel Pratt: Remorseless to the end. Let today be a lesson to all those who would seek to defy human nature with their way of life. Let today serve notice that black magic will not be tolerated in our society and let today be remembered as the day we burned the witch.

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")
