Crossed, Triple-Crossed is the 19th issue of the Charmed Comics. It's a Paige one-shot.


For a complete plot of Crossed, Triple-Crossed, go here.

When a criminal threatens Paige's happy family, she looks to her past to deal with the mortal menace. Conjuring up a detective from one of her favorite noir novels, Paige creates a street smart gumshoe to help set up a sting and take down the hood. But when the fictional private Dick decides he likes life outside the pages, the set up takes a dark and dangerous turn in ... Crossed, Triple-Crossed.







Magical NotesEdit


  • Paige cast a spell so a glamoured Henry could mimic her voice.

To Summon DickEdit

Paige casting a spell in the comic
Buckthorn, nutmeg, and a few bleeding hearts.
Bind some old school skills with internet smarts.
Let him know what I know, see what I've seen.
Everything else, give him power to glean.
To fight modern crime lords and how they think,
Send a street-wise detective that bleeds ink.

To Let Richard Quinn StayEdit

  • Cast by a glamoured Henry, so the spell had no effect.
Bleeding hearts, buckthorn, nutmeg, and more.
Bind past with present, now with before.
Turn page to flesh with a touch of pink.
I release him now with blood from ink.


  • Paige used a potion on Dick to return him to the novel.

Powers UsedEdit

  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige.
  • Remote Orbing: Used by Paige to orb Quinn to her, and then back to the Manor.
  • Glamouring: Used by Paige to make Henry look like her and to give Dick color after the fake spell.
  • Cryokinesis: Used by Henry Mitchell Jr. to cover all his toys in ice.
