Goofs: Just before Grams dies, she places the Book of Shadows in a trunk which is to the right of the attic door. In the series pilot Phoebe finds the trunk in front of the window.

  • In the flashbacks Grams is worried about the girls losing their connection as sisters if they become witches which is why she plans to use the potion on them the day she dies. But the girls time traveled back to before this event and she saw they were going to be fine.
  • The show's writers apparently forgot the gender of Kit the cat. Previously, Kit was female, but now Phoebe says, "You know, I don't think I'm ever gonna be able to look at Kit quite in the same way. Or get undressed in front of him, for that matter."
  • The bottom of Piper and Phoebe on the picture was badly cut (so they could move closer to each other). Near the end of the magical photo transformation, Prue's right hand shifts into a slightly different position.


"When three sisters reunite they unlock powers that have been dormant since they were children. In fact, they are the Charmed Ones, the most powerful witches alive -- charged with protecting the innocent from evil."
