Quotes

The Angel of Death: [laughs incredulously] You still don't get it do you? There's nothing you can do.
Prue: I can't just let an innocent man die!
The Angel of Death: You have to let him die, you have no choice. And until you can learn to accept that, you'll just keep missing the bigger picture.
Prue: What bigger picture?
The Angel of Death: Here, I'll show you.
[He extends his hand, which Prue regards warily. Death smiles slightly]
The Angel of Death: Oh, don't worry: it's not your time. Or not just yet, anyway.
[Prue takes Death's hand and they vanish]

Prue Meets The Angel of Death
23 April 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While on the beach with Phoebe, Prue sees an unknown woman taking pictures of her with a shadow next to the woman. Meanwhile, Cole is chased by two Seekers, vampire-demons that suck the knowledge of humans. The evil demons suck the former landlady of Cole, and then Andrea, the woman that took the picture and rookie assistant of Inspector Reece Davidson. Prue casts a spell to summon the Death, and the Angel of Death shows her the bigger picture, proving that death is not evil and only comes when the time has come. Prue accepts and finally grieves the death of her mother. Meanwhile the Halliwell sisters face and cast a spell to vanquish the Seekers.

In this excellent episode, Prue learns about the neutrality of the Reeper: the Angel of Death is not an evil being since it only arrives when the time of the victim has come. The evil Seekers are great, but not enough to face the Power of Three. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "O Anjo da Morte" ("The Angel of Death")
