When reunited with their long-lost father, the sisters are a little suspicious of his sudden reappearance and motives. The Halliwell's neighbors aren't all that they seem either.

Did You Know?


The audience's first encounter with the Charmed Ones' father, is the only time throughout the entire series that features an actor other than James Read. Tony Denison was first to take on the role of Victor. When viewers first meet the character, his name is Victor Halliwell, whereas James Read's portrayal was named Victor Bennett. The writers decided later that the name "Halliwell" should belong to the women in the family, so the character Victor was given a different last name. See more »

Missing Dad
7 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After many years of absence, Victor Halliwell (Tony Denison), the father of the Halliwell sisters, returns to San Francisco to visit them. Prue does not trust him, while Phoebe and Piper miss their dad and want to have dinner with him in a restaurant. Meanwhile, the nice neighbors of the Halliwell sisters are mutants that want to steal Book of Shadows.

"Thank You for Not Morphing" is a weak episode of "Charmed". The story about a group of mutants that want to get the Book of Shadows is intriguing regarding Victor, since only in the end it is disclosed the real intention of this character (is he the real father trying to protect his daughters or a mutant pretending to be their father?). My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Mutação" ("Mutation")
