Piper used this potion to transform some journalists into rats. The journalists were nosing around in the garbage of the Manor when Piper transformed them. Piper later reversed her magic by throwing the Reversal Potion at the rats.
Ghost Transformation Potion Edit
Paige drank a potion which turned her into the ghost of Carol Flowers. As the ghost, she tried to scare Seth Perra into letting go of the Halliwell case, but that didn't work.
Explosion Potions Edit
Billie used Explosion Potions to attack The Dogan. She threw several potions at him, but he was resistant to them. Billie finally managed to vanquish him by throwing a potion into his mouth. The effect of the potion looked like Piper's power of Molecular Combustion, so it might have been a similar potion to the one Piper created to replicate her power in Charmed and Dangerous.

Notes and TriviaEdit
- This episode introduces the kidnapping of Christy Jenkins, which becomes a major plot as the season goes on.
- This is the first episode with the name "Billie" on it. The next and last one is Kill Billie Vol. 2.
- This is the second episode of Charmed in which the sisters celebrate Halloween. The first time they celebrated it was in All Halliwell's Eve. For Paige, this episode marks the first time she's seen celebrating.
- Paige shows the journalists the attic and the broken sewing machine from Grams, blown up by Piper in Look Who's Barking.
- Paige talks about the history of the Halliwell Manor, previously heard in Is There a Woogy in the House?.
- This episode is filled with personal gain, but no consequences are shown.
- Billie freezing when the memory of Christy's kidnapping comes back is very similar to Paige freezing after witnessing a car crash in the episode "A Paige from the Past". They both experienced an event that reminded them about a traumatic event in their childhood.
- The scene where Phoebe says she is pregnant, followed by one of her sisters asking "Dex?" and Phoebe's response, "No, this guy I met at the gas station—of course it was Dex!" is very similar to when she first revealed that she slept with Jason in Season Six. In that scene, Phoebe states "I slept with my boss," followed by one of her sisters asking, "Jason?" to which she responds with, "No, Elise—of course it was Jason!"
- This episode marks the last appearance of Dex Lawson, even though the episode ends with Phoebe and Dex deciding to take things slow and figuring out how they feel about each other without the magic.
References to other movies, books, mythology etc.Edit
- The title is a reference to the 2003 Quentin Tarantino movie "Kill Bill: Vol 1".
- The close-up of Billie's eyes when she casts the spell is another allusion to the "Kill Bill" films.
- Kaley Cuoco misreads the second part of the memory spell twice in a row by omitting the second "my".
- a series continuity error happens when we see leo getting changed in the walk in closet that he had converted into a nursery for Wyatt in an earlier season.
Behind the Scenes Edit
