Missing Dad
7 January 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

After many years of absence, Victor Halliwell (Tony Denison), the father of the Halliwell sisters, returns to San Francisco to visit them. Prue does not trust him, while Phoebe and Piper miss their dad and want to have dinner with him in a restaurant. Meanwhile, the nice neighbors of the Halliwell sisters are mutants that want to steal Book of Shadows.

"Thank You for Not Morphing" is a weak episode of "Charmed". The story about a group of mutants that want to get the Book of Shadows is intriguing regarding Victor, since only in the end it is disclosed the real intention of this character (is he the real father trying to protect his daughters or a mutant pretending to be their father?). My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Mutação" ("Mutation")
