Magical NotesEdit

Book of ShadowsEdit

BansheeEdit

3x21 bos banshee --- to track a banshee

The Banshee entry

is a Demon who
wanders the earth
feeding on souls in
great pain. Hunting
only at night, this
Demon uses her voice
as a high pitched Call
to locate a victim, by
hearing the inner cry.
She does this by
zeroing in on the waves
of pain that emanate
from the stricken
A Banshee then
elevates her Call
into a Scream, so
powerful it kills
those she targets.

Cole's Human FormEdit

Cole's human Form

Cole likes walks in the park,
jazz, fine wine. He's ticklish
(toes and waist especially) He's
an excellent salsa dancer, pretends
otherwise. He likes steak,
medium rare, and artichokes.
He's great in bed. Good stamina.
Belthazor/Cole Turner
Born 1885
Father: Benjamin (Human)
Mother: Elizabeth (Demon)

WB's promo

  • Darryl does not appear in this episode.
  • Prue doesn't use her Telekinesis or Astral Projection power.
  • Piper doesn't use her Molecular Immobilization power.
  • This is the last time that Prue is seen going to P3.
  • This episode reunites Shannen Doherty and Joe E. Tata (Police Inspector), who played Nat Bussichio on "Beverly Hills, 90210".
  • This is the first time Piper vanquishes someone on purpose with her new power.
  • This is also the last time Prue sees Cole in the episodes, albeit as a dog. She'll see him later on, in The Heavens Can Wait.

  • This is the last episode to feature Kit. However, she does appear again for the official final time in "Cat House", when her sudden disappearance is explained.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • The title is reference to the 1989 film "Look Who's Talking".
  • In Irish legends, the Banshee wails outside the house of someone who is about to die; which could possibly be a foreshadowing to Prue's death. However, aspect of Banshees does not apply to the Charmed version.

GlitchesEdit

  • When Phoebe is in the kitchen with the Book of Shadows, her pen doesn't touch the pages.
  • At the beginning Phoebe pastes a photo strip on the book, but when the shot changes after she says "So we prepare future witches in case he attacks" the strip is printed on the page, not pasted.

Continuity ErrorsEdit

  • Piper tells Phoebe that she is not the first Halliwell to fall in love with a demon, referring to herself and Jeremy Burns. However, Jeremy was a warlock.

MusicEdit

  • At the start: The Corrs, "Give Me a Reason"
  • At the end: The Corrs, "Breathless"
