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.

At the end of the episode, while the video tape left by Victor is playing, only brief glimpses of Mom are shown in the Christmas morning scene. If you look very closely, you will see that it is actually Alyssa Milano. See more »

Phoebe Halliwell: No, by myself before dinner and I had a premonition about dad when he hugged me. He was stealing the Book Of Shadows. Yeah, you were right about him, Prue. I didn't want the premonition to be true. I was hoping, praying that there was a perfectly good explanation for it. Hoping that, that he was really here to be with us. I just wanted him back in our lives. He's our dad.

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")
