"Don't let them make you forget why I'm doing this, Phoebe. It's supposed to hurt. Go to the Book. Remember all the losses. Then go to Zankou."
Leo to Phoebe

Charmageddon is the 13th episode of the seventh season and 147th overall episode of Charmed.


For a complete plot of Charmageddon, go here.

While the Charmed Ones enjoy their new conflict-free world, Leo learns that in order for the Avatars to protect their Utopian world, they also control everyone's destiny by deciding who lives and dies. Wanting to stop the Avatars, Leo joins forces with Zankou to undo the change. Paige receives a special surprise and Leo's fate relies on the Elders. In the end, Leo's death shocks the sisters back to reality and they team up with Zankou to stop the Avatars. Using information that Zankou found in an ancient tomb, they make the Avatar-killing potion and confront the Avatars with it. The Avatars, realizing that humanity is not ready for it yet, use the last of their power to rewind time to when the Utopian world started. Doing so breaks the Utopian spell and returns all those killed by the Avatars including Leo, who is stripped of his Avatar powers, but still remains an Elder. The Avatars are too weak to rewind time far enough to save Kyle, and Paige goes to his apartment where she is shocked to find him apparently alive. The Elders have made him a Whitelighter for his actions against the Avatars and he says a final goodbye to Paige before orbing out.

Charmageddon WB Trailer

  • This episode scored 4.0 million viewers.
  • The title of the episode is a reference to Armageddon, the end of the world. It is also a reference to the name of a 1998 film starring Bruce Willis called "Armageddon".
  • Leo dies for the third and last time on show.
  • When Phoebe touches the Book of Shadows to remember many of the losses she's seen:
  • Prue is the only one to be shown with her tombstone and funeral. Unlike the others, the way she died is not shown. This is because Shannen Doherty refused to let the producers use her image after she left the show.
  • According to IMDb, this episode has a deleted scene with a Muse. The same actress, Tara Platt, later portrayed the Muse in "Repo Manor".
  • This episode marks the final appearance of Kerr Smith as Kyle Brody.
  • Phoebe says "What's the matter, Zankou? Chicken?". The line was written by Brad Kern. The writers then informed him about the "Zankou Chicken" restaurants.
  • At one point, the demon Zankou (played by Oded Fehr) shows Leo a wall with pictures of ancient Egyptians and the jackal-headed Anubis, reminding fans of Oded's role as Ardeth Bey in the films The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.
  • This is Andy Trudeau's last appearance in the series; it is a flashback.
  • Phoebe's remembrance of Cole's death seems to indicate she still has some feelings for him, even though she appeared to bitterly hate him by the time he was vanquished once and for all in Season 5.
  • One important death left out of Phoebe's vision is that of Patty Halliwell.
  • Phoebe sees seven different events in her vision, this is the largest number of events she has seen in one vision since the episodes 'We're Off to See The Wizard', when she sees Cole as The Source at many different times and in 'Primrose Empath', in which she saw three different murders by one demon.
  • The snow globe in Kyle's apartment features the World Trade Center in New York.
  • There is a Spaceballs quote in this episode and the next.
  • The French title is 'Charmageddon - 2ème partie', making this and the previous episode the 1st and 2nd parts of 'Charmageddon'.
  • This is the final appearance of the demon Laygan, whose death (unlike Leo's) appears to carry over to time being rewound as he is never seen again after being vanquished by Leo.


  • When Phoebe and Piper are in the kitchen cooking for the party, Phoebe mixes something in a bowl and then pours it into the pie crust on the counter. However in the next shot Phoebe goes to put the pie crust into the oven and it is empty.
  • A bowl of chocolate chips moves several times between shots.
  • When Piper blasts one of the Avatars, the sound effect is heard, but no explosion is seen.
