Ariel and Shadow

In 2001, Ariel sat down to perform a ritual in her home. Her familiar, however betrayed her by knocking over several potion bottles and by doing so murdered her, stole her powers, and gave him a chance to become an immortal warlock.

When Shadow attacked the Charmed Ones, they didn't know anything about him. That is, until the Book of Shadows turned to an entry on Seance, with some spiritual help from Penny. They used the Seance ritual to bring Ariel back, who informed them how she died and how to avoid helping Shadow become immortal. She reminded the Charmed Ones that "evil exists to spread loss" and to "be careful not to lose each other."
