The One Where Piper And Phoebe Swap Powers...
22 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode. It's just really good. I love it more and more every time I watch it.

In this episode, Paige and Piper decide to swap powers so that Piper can see the world Phoebe saw. But they're interrupted by Zankou and their powers fly out the window, literally. They go into random people on the street and the sisters must find them, and get them back, before the mortals do something they'll really regret. Meanwhile, Leo sends Paige and Kyle back to when his parents died to see how it really happened. It turns out, it was the Avatars fault. They were killed by demons.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
