Premonition: Used by the Seer to foresee how the Source's attack on the Charmed Ones would end. Phoebe got a premonition of Cole taking the Source's fireball to save her life. The Seer also had a Premonition of the Hollow's destruction, claiming she saw nothing in the future, and an unknown premonition later..

Artifacts:

 

  • Hollow - an ancient vapor and the most powerful magical force of unknown origin, which absorbs all forms of magic it comes in contact with, whether it be good or evil.
  • Crystals: Used by the Charmed Ones to temporarily contain the Source of all Evil.
  • Darklighter Arrows - An arrow, poisonous to Whitelighters, used by Darklighters to kill Whitelighters. The poison will slowly kill them, if not healed in time.
  • Darklighter Crossbow - Used to shoot Darklighter Arrows with.

 

Goofs: When the Source unfreezes the vase he blew up a piece falls on the stand where the vase stood on. The piece disappears as the camera pans up.

  • When the Seer disappeared after helping the Charmed Ones, the camera is panned back to Cole (when he says "A very evil person"), some of the Seer's hair can be seen at the left side of the screen.
  • The Source's voice is noticeably higher in the scenes preceding the opening credits. Throughout the rest of the episode his voice is considerably lower through the use of special effects.
  • When The Source throws a fireball at Piper, if you pause just before she hits the wall, you can see her stunt double's face.
  • When the Source uses Telekinesis to throw Paige into the mattresses and boxes, you can see a cream colored long sleeve shirt on the stunt double and their actual skin tone on their hands.
  • When Cole throws fireballs at the Source, the crystal that the Source orbed earlier is still shown on his left hand. However, when the sisters cast the spell to vanquish him, the crystal is no longer visible. Then when the camera's angle shifts to above his head, the Source is shown holding the crystal again.
  • When the Source opens the box containing the Hollow for the first time, you can clearly see wires inside the box.
