Little Box of Horrors WB Trailer

  • The title is a reference to the Roger Corman film, later adapted into a musical which was then itself developed into a movie "Little Shop of Horrors".
  • The WB used the promo title "Pandora's Box" for this episode.
  • The musical piece that plays when Katya advances on Hope after she has released the sorrows would be used again in "Vaya Con Leos", in the scene before Leo is frozen.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • The title is a reference to the film, musical and a movie musical "Little Shop of Horrors".
  • Piper says that Leo is like Mr. Mom, making a reference to 1983 film, starring Michael Keaton and Teri Garr.
  • Nina's line about "one girl being born in every generation" is a clear reference to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, where in every generation, a slayer is born.
  • Katya said that Pandora's Box was "a gift the gods gave to Prometheus". In mythology, the box was given to Epimetheus, the brother of Prometheus, instead.


  • When Paige complains about the ringing in her ear, she's rubbing her temple with her right hand and holding a coffee mug with her left. In the next shot, the position of her hands and the mug have changed.
  • When scrying for Pandora's Box Piper says it is on the UC Berkeley campus; however, it is in a dorm room and there are no dorms on the actual campus. Also, the interior is not actually that of a UC Berkeley dorm, nor is the building they show the exterior of dorm rooms.
  • Sandra, the Elder, said Guardians are supposed to guard the box from being opened by demons but demons can't open the box, which is later shown when Katya tries to open it.
  • When Piper and Phoebe bring home Hope and Darcy (who is really Katya) Piper says, "there’s still a demon on the loose, and the longer he is, the more we’re all going to be affected." However, Piper said "he" even though Katya is a female.

Continuity ErrorsEdit

  • In "Sin Francisco", Leo said that the sin box was probably how the Pandora's Box myth got started, but in this episode he seems to know and has always known that Pandora's Box is, in fact, real.
