Did You Know?


When Piper starts to reads the story of Snow White, we can see the text on the left page with a giant picture of the Hunstman on the right page. The left page reads, "Once upon a time in a land far away lived a queer little queen who had to have her way. She talked to her mirrors and so jealous was she that she made yourself ugly just so she could see, a fair beauty so twisted that lived in the woods with a little midgets who out once understood that this beautiful damsel so soon would fall sleep until kissed by a stranger in that state she would keep. So they went went on the web to find her a mate because they didn't want to live with a girl in that state." The second paragraph is a repeat of the first. The third paragraph is different, but blocked by Piper's hand. Regardless, what the book says and what Piper is reading, are completely different. When we see Piper in the next scene, she appears to be reading from the right page, but as we just saw, there was no text. See more »

I noticed a small plot hole
2 September 2020 | by daireokaneSee all my reviews

In this episode, paige doesn't recognise grams even though they met in the charmed again episode. It was a bit strange to me that they were written as they didn't know each other?!
