Goofs

The potion for the vanquish spell, the one that Melinda used in Salem 300 years previously, requires a feather from an endangered spotted owl, which makes it difficult for the sisters to make the potion. There weren't any spotted owls, endangered or otherwise, on the East Coast where and when Melinda came from. See more »

Quotes

Prue Halliwell: Oh, yeah. You want to have that conversation with him? Hey, Andy, I hate to bother you, but this 17th century warlock is trying to kill me and my sisters. Any thoughts?

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")
