Just when Piper 'tempts fate' by stating it's Friday 13, the sisters get shot at- Prue manages to reverse the fatal bullets, but it turns out to be a mortal hit-woman, Mrs. Hellfire, who was hired to kill off 13 witches, one of which, over-enthusiastic novice Marcie Steadwell, they must help Darryl protect. While Bucklands new boss tells Prue she has to team up with Jack and sell $100,000 in 24h or both be sacked, she has to pretend to be the glamorous hit-woman to meet the sexy mafioso Jessup Bane, who the sisters rightly suspect to be a pawn of the demon of fear, Barbas.

Did You Know?


Hellfire is also a multi-platform, multi-target United States Army modular missile system. The name comes from the fact that it was originally intended to be a helicopter-launched fire-and-forget weapon (HELicopter FIRE-and-forget). See more »


The Charmed ones refer to Barbas by his real name. However they wouldn't have known his name as in his previous and first appearance he was simply known as the 'demon of fear', even in the book of shadows. See more »


Marcie Steadwell: Oh, my stars!
Piper Halliwell: What is it? What's wrong?
Marcie Steadwell: You can't keep wolfsbane and holy thistle on the same shelf. Their harmonics are in complete opposition. I mean, I don't want to second-guess a sister witch, but this is all wrong. I don't see how you can cast a spell that's worth a darn.

The Return of Barbas, the Demon of Fear
11 February 2007 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

A hit-woman tries to kill the Halliwell sisters on Friday, 13th, shooting their house but she dies when Prue protects herself and her sisters from the bullets. They find that she was Ms. Hellfire, and Prue goes undercover to investigate why a mortal woman wished to kill them. Prue discloses that she was hired by the gangster Bane Jessup, who associated to the Demon of Fear Barbas, to kill the Halliwell sisters and other witches before midnight.

In "Ms. Hellfire", Barbas returns but is again vanquished by the Halliwell sisters. Prue develops the ability of astral projection and the sisters disclose to Darryl Morris that they are good witches. I do not know how Prue was able to get the fortune of Ms. Hellfire to Buckland's Auction House. The silly Marcie Stedwell is annoying, and this episode is very weak. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Sra. Hellfire" ("The Mrs. Hellfire")
