As Richard Montana's interim assistant, Paige gets deeply attached to him. However the young widower stems from a witches family which is engaged in a bitter feud with the Callaways, the rival witches family of Richard's thus-killed wife Olivia, who is a after revenge at all costs. Paige sabotages the bloody fight, which accidentally worsens it, and Olivia takes possession of her, so she can cause greater havoc, even resolving to get Richard the hardest way. Chris can't dismiss Leo's suspicion of his intentions with the Charmed ones. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Title is based upon the expression "Love's a Bitch". See more »


Paige is injured in her right shoulder by an energy ball whilst playing pinochle at the Callaway house. She goes back to Halliwell manor to treat her wound, and returns to the front of the Callaway house some hours later wearing a clean shirt, with her wound covered and no longer bleeding. When the Callaways fire an energy ball at the gate, Richard Montana pushes Paige out of its path and she is not hit by it. Yet in the next scene, she is inside the Montana home holding a cloth to her now bleeding-again right shoulder, an identical wound and bloodstain to her original energy ball injury. This does not make chronological or plot sense. See more »

Chris Halliwell: What's wrong? What's wrong is - I don't do babies. Not my thing.
[Leo orbs into room]
Chris Halliwell: Leo however, great with kids, especially his own. You're not following me are you?
Leo Wyatt: Why, should I be?
Phoebe Halliwell: Oh there's a lot of love in this room. Okay, so um there's a bottle in the fridge if Wyatt wakes up and a diaper rash cream only if he needs it ok? We've gotta keep that butt moist!
