The sisters discover their family tradition has an evil counterpart, with a warlock power of three, in the persons of the Rowe coven brothers, but they can stop this from materializing by helping Brendan, who wants to escape a life of evil by becoming a priest, while his brothers are literally dead-set to prevent his impending ordination, or otherwise to kill him.

The Warlock That Did not Want to Be Bad
31 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Brendan Rowe belongs to a family of evil warlocks, and his two brothers are waiting for him to complete a death ritual and together become the "evil power of three". However, Brendan wants to ordinate as a priest to escape from his fate. After a premonition of Phoebe, Prue acknowledges Brendan and decides to help him to rescue his soul from the dark side. Meanwhile his brothers decide to kill him if he does not become an evil being.

"When Bad Warlocks Turn Good" is another good episode of "Charmed", with the actress Shannen Doherty extremely beautiful and charming, and another battle between the good and the evil. The secondary story is about a silly romance of Piper forced by Phoebe. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Bruxo Que Não Queria Ser Mau" ("The Warlock That Did not Want to Be Bad")
