Meanwhile, Piper is having trouble with the new chef of Quake, and the handyman Leo returns to help the Halliwell sisters to fix the chandelier.

Goofs

Further evidence of the "trick" used in the water glass/ice-cube debacle at Quake with Leo and Phoebe: the water swirls and jets up from the bottom of the glass, creating the only movement of an 'ice-cube', when the water pressure from below is too strong and one of the glass 'cubes' is forced off the pile.

The Whitelighter – The Guardian of the Good Witches
21 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the young witch Max is kidnapped by two thieves to use his power to heist a bank, he communicates with Prue through a Ouija Board, and she helps the boy. Meanwhile, Piper is having trouble with the new chef of Quake, and the handyman Leo returns to help the Halliwell sisters to fix the chandelier. When Phoebe sees him floating in the air, he discloses that he is a Whitelighter, the guardian of good witches assigned to protect the Halliweel sisters, and he was not allowed to fall in love for a witch as he did for Piper. He asks Phoebe to keep the secret, while he tries to find the best way to end his relationship with Piper.

"Secrets and Guys" is an underrated episode of "Charmed" with two good stories. The lead one, about the boy Max, is flawed, since Prue discloses her ability to the criminals, and they do not die in the end, therefore jeopardizing Max and Prue's secrets. The parallel one, also very entertaining, about the powers of Leo and his impossible love for Piper. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Segredos e Homens" ("Secrets and Men")
