Did You Know?


The spell that Brendan's brothers use to awaken his warlock side is - "Fratrem nostrum reconciliate, conventum nostrum consummate". This can be translated as - "Brother our to restore, coming together our completion". See more »


Prue asks Brenden if he found Father Austin before or after he turned into a warlock and Brenden says it was AFTER and the rage transformed him. If he found the priest AFTER he transformed the rage wouldn't have transformed him. What he should have said was he found Father Austin BEFORE. See more »


Phoebe Halliwell: Because I'm worried about you, that's why.
Piper Halliwell: Oh, Phoebe, don't start.
Phoebe Halliwell: No, Piper, something's up. You're turning down dates with a guy that you like, extolling the virtues of convent living, you've been working double shifts three times a week... this is not the Piper I know and I'm worried.

The Warlock That Did not Want to Be Bad
31 January 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Brendan Rowe belongs to a family of evil warlocks, and his two brothers are waiting for him to complete a death ritual and together become the "evil power of three". However, Brendan wants to ordinate as a priest to escape from his fate. After a premonition of Phoebe, Prue acknowledges Brendan and decides to help him to rescue his soul from the dark side. Meanwhile his brothers decide to kill him if he does not become an evil being.

"When Bad Warlocks Turn Good" is another good episode of "Charmed", with the actress Shannen Doherty extremely beautiful and charming, and another battle between the good and the evil. The secondary story is about a silly romance of Piper forced by Phoebe. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Bruxo Que Não Queria Ser Mau" ("The Warlock That Did not Want to Be Bad")
