Notes and Trivia
- This is the thirteenth episode to have the word 'witch' in the title.
- The WB used the promo title "Charmed on Trial" for this episode.
- The actual episode does not match the flashback clips used in The WB's trailer for this episode. In the trailer, clips are shown from the following episodes:
- Holly Marie Combs is significantly and noticeably featured less in this episode, as with the remainder of Season 6, due to her real life pregnancy.
- Billy Drago reprises his role as Barbas. This is also the first time Barbas is shown Flaming like many other upper-level demons.
- As in "Cat House", archieved material of Julian McMahon as Cole is shown. This marks the second time he was shown since his vanquish in "Centennial Charmed".
- There were no clips featuring Prue Halliwell as talks between producers and Shannen Doherty failed when she didn't allow for her image to be used.
- Andy's death in "Déjà Vu All Over Again" is shown, though his face is never seen. Additionally, he is only referred to as Prue's first love – never by name.
- When Chris accidentally drops Phinks into purgatory, Drew Fuller said "shit" during taping, but dubbed over the word "shoot" for the completed, aired episode.
- Phoebe is disempowered in this episode. Part of this is because her leviation power was too expensive in terms of special effects.
- This is the first appearance of Inspector Sheridan.
- In this episode, Barbas accused Phoebe for Cole's fall to insanity after her constant rejection of him. Cole did the same in "Y Tu Mummy Tambien".
- Sheila's hair is now shoulder-length, when she previously sported a pixie cut seven episodes earlier. This supports the six-month time jump after Wyatt's first birthday.
- The title of this episode is a reference to the film Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)
- When the Cleaners freeze the scene, and Paige and Phoebe turn around, it is clear they are in front of a green screen because parts of Phoebe's arm disappear and reappear for a second.
