Trivia

After Phoebe discovers that her powers have grown and she can now see into the past she laments "...somehow I thought I was going to get to fly". This foreshadows how her powers will continue to grow so that in later seasons she can fly into the air by levitating. See more »

Goofs

It is mentioned that Melinda Warren was burned at the stake in Salem. In fact, no one was burned to death in Salem. Those sentenced for witchcraft were actually executed by hanging; one man died as a result of torture by being crushed by rocks. See more »

Quotes

Phoebe Halliwell: You've never asked a guy out before?
Piper Halliwell: Not on a real date, no.
Phoebe Halliwell: I don't understand. Am I the only person in this family who's inherited the take a chance gene?
Piper Halliwell: Probably, 'cause if I remember my biology correctly, it's attached to the "Can't Mind My Own Business" gene.
Phoebe Halliwell: Oh. Go.

The Ancestor and the Warlock from the XVII Century
18 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1692, in Salem, Massachusetts, the evil warlock Matthew Tate (Billy Wirth) is trapped in a locket by Melinda Warren (Tyler Layton) before she is being burnt at stake. In the present days, the also evil Rex Buckland (Neil Roberts) and Hannah Webster (Leigh Allyn Baker) give the locket to Prue as a piece to be cataloged, and Prue accidentally releases Matthew, the real intention of the wicked double. Matthew steals Prue's power and while chasing Piper and Phoebe to get their powers, the trio resurrects Melinda to help them to curse the powerful Matthew and imprison him again.

"The Witch Is Back" is another good episode of "Charmed", where the evilness and malice of Rex and Hannah are disclosed a little bit more, but not their master. The romance between Piper and Leo seems to have finally started. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Bruxa Está de Volta" ("The Witch Is Back")
