Notes and TriviaEdit
- At the end of this episode, Piper finally decides on a name for the baby: "Wyatt Matthew Halliwell". Wyatt after his father, Leo Wyatt, "Matthew" after his aunt, Paige Matthews, and "Halliwell", as agreed on by Piper and Leo, because it's respected in the magical community.
- Names voted for Baby Halliwell: Peter (in keeping the "P" tradition), Prudence Melinda (the name Piper and Leo initially wanted to name the baby, when they still thought they were going to be getting the daughter Piper saw in Morality Bites), Potter (after Harry Potter), and Jason (after Jason Dean, Phoebe's new boss and love interest)
- The Warren Family Tree from "Pardon My Past" makes a second appearance. Male names on the family tree rejected as ideas for Piper's newborn baby include Herbert, Clarence, and Milton.
- Paige seems a bit disappointed at it taking awhile to include her on the tree, as she's not on there by this episode's time.
- Eric Dane makes his first appearance as Jason Dean.
- This episode aired March 30, 2003, but in Used Karma, which aired January 25, 2004 (not quite 10 months later), Jason will be upset that Phoebe went 15 months without telling him that she was a witch. However, time jumps between episodes have occurred before and could have happened here as well.
- This is the first of two appearances Grace Zabriskie would make as the Crone.
- At the end of the episode, Jason states that he learned less about his last girlfriends family than he has of Phoebe's and although not dating yet, the remark hints at a future romance.
- The WB used the promo title Little Angel.
- Piper mentions that Wyatt would probably grow up to be neurotic. Ironically, Wyatt isn't the one who grows up to be neurotic, it's Piper and Leo's second son, Chris, that grows up to be obsessively neurotic.
- Wyatt can generate forcefields to protect himself from demons, which is probably what made Piper invincible during her pregnancy. Also Wyatt realizes that when baby alarm goes off his family will come running, and therefore uses his power to set it off whenever he wants attention.
- This is the fifth episode with the word demon in the title.
- Paige's hair is a bright red at the beginning of the episode and it's clear, she just recently colored her hair, however, in other scenes it is much darker and it is clear she has brown roots.
- When going to the demonic market, Paige appears decked in a bright blue short dress and blonde wig, clearly standing out from anyone else in the market. Logically, the bright colors should make her disguise easy to catch, but only the parasites manage to figure her out and even for them, it takes a minute.
- When Piper, Leo, and Paige are looking at the family tree It shows Victor's last name to be Jones.
