Good Episode, But Weird Plot
14 September 2006 | by arturo_smallcharmSee all my reviews

Since Patty died, the girls learned how to leave without her. So, one day a demon comes to the house saying that he is an old friend of Grams and Patty. This guy made a deal in the past with Patty to steal the Charmed Ones' powers, they had to cast a spell, but this take them to the past, where Mom and Grams were alive. Phoebe met his mother, finally.

But the question is about episode 8.22 Forever Charmed, where Piper travels on time and went to Patty, but she no longer recognize her, but why? I mean they went to the past in this episode at the same era, and then in the final episode, she didn't remember the all grown up Charmed Ones.

Good episode, though.
