Did You Know?


This episode features four separate people - Andy, Eric Lohman, Brent (on some level) and David - learning of the sisters' powers. It is also the first and one of the only times that many people discovered their secret and no magic was used to cover it up. See more »


When Phoebe throws the potion, it appears that she's uses half of it to vanquish the Grimlock. When we see her carrying the jar in the next scene it's back to being completely full. See more »


Prue Halliwell: He's a reporter, trying to make a name for himself. You can't believe anything he says.
Inspector Andy Trudeau: Normally, I don't. This time, I do. We've been down this road too many times, Prue. I know you're hiding something. I have my suspicions about what it is, but I've had to accept the fact that you can't tell me or you don't want to tell me. Either way, it's not just me anymore. Lohman's onto you, or at least he thinks he is. And he's not gonna let go. Prue, if you don't level with me, I can't help you control...

Grimlocks and Revelations
1 February 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While celebrating the birthday party of her friend's son David in the park with her sisters, Prue sees a demon kidnapping the boy and uses her power trying to avoid. The despicable Bay Weekly tabloid journalist Eric Lohman witness and blackmails Prue. Meanwhile, Piper and Prue finds that the demon is a Grimlock that can only be vanquished with the root of Schisandra; further, twenty years ago two boys were kidnapped in the same spot and one of them called Brent Miller survived, but totally blind. Phoebe contacts him while Piper visits Josh to get some maps of the underground of San Francisco. When Eric goes to the office of Inspector Andy Trudeau, Prue is forced to reveal the secret of the Halliwell sisters to him.

"Out of Sight" is one of the best episodes of the First Season of "Charmed". The story is dark, and now with Andy aware of the powers of Prue, Piper and Phoebe, the stories will certainly shift to another direction. There is an amazing mistake of sequence when Prue is preparing the potion with Schisandra: she is ready to fill a bottle, the telephone rings, and when she returns, the bottle is full. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Testemunha Ocular" ("Eye Witness")
