Prue Halliwell: What's the vaccine for? What does it protect against?

The Warlock Terminator
16 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Gavin, a warlock from the future, comes to the present to eliminate people that will develop a vaccine against the evil warlocks. Meanwhile, Prue casts a spell making people around the Halliwell sisters and themselves telling only the truth for twenty four-hours and then forget everything. She wishes to disclose her secret about being a good witch and her ability to Andy and see his reaction. But sometimes truth hurts.

"The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts" is a very good episode of "Charmed", a sort of "The Terminator" and "Liar Liar" blended together. Both stories are interesting and funny, and the conclusion with Prue finding how Andy would react to her secret is consistent. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Verdade Está Lá Fora s Dói" ("The Truth Is Out There and It Hurts")
