Book of ShadowsEdit
- In the days of Ancient Greece the Titans were
- God-like beings who ruthlessly ruled the earth.
- Like other magical beings their powers were tied
- to their emotions but on a much grander scale.
- A burst of Titan rage could spark a massive
- earthquake or a hurricane of epic proportions.
- The mortals of the era were terrified
- by these beings' abilities and worshiped them
- as Gods in the hopes of appeasing them.
- Ultimately the Titans could not be vanquished
- and the only way they could be stopped was
- by magically entombing them in ice, an act which
- brought an end to their terrible reign.
To Free the Titans Edit
An unidentified Demon spent decades trying to find a way to free two Titans, Meta and Demitrius from their tombes. When they were freed, the Demon asked for their help to take over the Underworld, but Demitrius killed him with a lightning bolt.
- Emergo dormio libertas cæles dicio!
To Release the Essences of the Greek GoddessesEditAfter the Elders (in The Heavens) died, Chris convinced Leo to do something the Elders would've never allowed. He enterd the vault in the Upper Regions and took the vase which contained the Essences of the Greek Goddesses out. He cast this spell to unleash them on the Charmed Ones, turning them into the Goddesses of Love, War and Earth.
- Eccere, oh, gee,
- Ac mando ma mento.
- Paige made several strong potions to attack the Titans, however, they weren't strong enough.

Notes and TriviaEdit
- This episode marks Dorian Gregory's 50th episode as Darryl Morris.
- The Whitelighter language first heard in Blinded by the Whitelighter returns as background noise while Leo is in The Heavens.
- The male whitelighter who was turned into stone by Meta was a mold of Brad Kern.
- The vase which contains the essences of the Greek Goddesses was previously used in "Which Prue is It, Anyway?".
- The mortals that were imbued with God-powers by the Elders let the power go to their heads and forced the world to worship them. This is yet more proof that mortals can't handle magical powers.
- Brian Thompson, who plays Cronus, also appeared in "Apocalypse, Not" as War, one of the Four Horsemen.
- Joss Whedon admitted that he used the phrase "Oh My Goddess" from this episode in Buffy the Vampire Slayer's series finale "Chosen". Willow said this after releasing the essence of the Slayers from the scythe.
- This is the first appearance of Drew Fuller as Chris.
- This is the first two-part episode not to feature the shortened credits, instead the normal Season 5 opening credits are seen.
- Chris is the first adult male witch seen on the series, though his true nature is not yet revealed. Previously, all the male witches seen have been children.
- This episode scored 4.9 million viewers.
- The WB used promo title "Charmed Goddesses" for this episode.
References to other movies, books, mythology etc.Edit
- Phoebe mentions Mary Poppins, the famous 1964 Disney movie.
- The title of the episode is a reference to the phrase "Oh, my God!".
- When Paige is asking Phoebe what kind of beings she saw in her Premonition, she points at a page in the Book of Shadows. When the shot then turns to Piper who had just walked in, you can see Paige was pointing to the To Call Upon Our Ancestors page which is used to vanquish The Source.
- Phoebe and Piper mention that they have no air conditioning in the manor and never had, though in Sight Unseen, Cole turned the manor's air conditioning on in order to flush out the invisible Troxa.
- When Paige is turned to stone, her hair (as a statue) is first down and wavy. However, a moment later, the statue's hair is in a low ponytail, as it was before she was turned to stone.
