Breaking the Sibling Bonds

The Triad advises Cole to kill Phoebe instead of sleeping with her, otherwise he would die. Cole summons the spirit of rage Andras, a demon that increases anger to rage, and asks him to infect the Halliwell sisters, breaking their sibling bonds. Andras succeeds and the charmed sisters lose their powers, and Phoebe moves to Cole's place. However Cole is in love for Phoebe and controls Belthazor and spares Phoebe, asking her to return to her sisters. When Belthazor unleashes, he fights against the charmed sisters and then Cole is summoned by the Triad.

"Power Outage" is a great episode of this irregular series. The situation of Cole, a demon in love for a good witch that he is supposed to kill, is intriguing and attractive. With the fate of the Triad, the next episodes are promising. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Sem Poderes" ("Without Powers")
