Two demons want to get revenge on wood nymphs and kill their Satyr. While the first tries to kill the nymphs, the other tries to lure them into believing that he is their new Satyr so that they would bring him to the Eternal Spring. The Wood Nymphs flee to the city, and the Elders send the Charmed Ones to help them because they fear exposure. When one Nymph is killed, the remaining two change Paige into a Nymph to be complete again.

Book of Shadows
Piper mentions from the entry on Nymphs that only certain types of magical beings can be turned into Nymphs. The entry itself is never seen and the content is thus unknown.
To Locate Nymphs
Paige was working on a Spell to locate Nymphs, based on combining the four elements: water, wind, earth and fire. However, because the Nymphs were on TV, she never finished it. But later, Piper and Phoebe finished it to find Paige. It teleported them to the forest where the Eternal Spring was. The Spell itself is never seen casting and thus unknown.
When Tull drank from the Eternal Spring, he became invincible and immortal. As a Vanquishing Spell wouldn't work, Paige suggested that they could cast a Spell to turn Tull into something else immortal, like a tree. She then improvised the first part of the Spell, and Piper continued to finish it.

- So take this demon and give him roots.
Phoebe brought a Vanquishing Potion with her to vanquish Xavier and Tull. Xavier still tried to attack Piper and Phoebe, but they dodged his stream of fire and Phoebe threw the Vanquishing Potion. She later tried the same Potion on Tull, but because he had drunk from the Eternal Spring, he was invincible and thus Immune to the potion.

- This is Paul Ruditis' (writer of a few Charmed novels and the Charmed Comics) least favourite episode. Rose McGowan expressed a dislike for the episode as well.
- It is also the lowest ranked episode of Charmed on TV.com with a ranking of only 7.3.
- The fountain that the nymphs dance in was filmed on location (March 8, 2003), in Pasadena, at City Hall. The courtyard and fountain is actually on the backside of City Hall, facing Euclid Street and All Saints' Church.
- The Bunyip is mentioned again. Phoebe mentioned it in "Chick Flick" and it was shown on a page of the Book of Shadows in "Morality Bites".

- A journalist at The Bay Mirror defines the nymphs as "Godiva Girls", referring to legendary Lady Godiva. The Charmed Ones will meet Lady Godiva two years later in "The Bare Witch Project".
