NotesEdit

Charmed 8x12(00:20)
Payback's a Witch WB Trailer
  • Wyatt celebrates his 3rd bithday in the episode.
  • This is the twenty-third episode to have the word 'Witch' in the title.
  • This episode marks the first time Paige has ever healed someone on her own. She has channeled Leo's power to heal Cole and him before, but she's never used the power on her own. From now on, she possesses the power of Healing and is able to use it at will. This is the last time in the series that one of the sisters develops a new power.
  • From this episode on, Charmed became the longest running hour-long series featuring all female leads in 2006. However, Charmed was ultimately replaced by the ABC drama Desperate Housewives, which ended with 180 episodes while Charmed has a total of 178.
  • Billie shows her knowledge of magic as she makes a smoke potion out of raw materials and knows that a Whitelighter's trigger for healing is love.
  • When Paige and Billie glamour into each other, Paige (who's Billie), has lost her voice. This could simply be due to the fact that during filming, Rose McGowan lost her voice. Paige´s voice lose is noticeably when she is talking to Henry in the bank.
  • The title of this episode is a reference to the expression 'payback's a bitch'. This is similar to "Love's a Witch".
  • The text in the ending credits of this episode doesn't fade in/out as it used to.
  • This episode is the last time a glamour is used in the series.
  • Near the end of the episode, Paige orbs purple a few times, unlike seen in the previous episodes. In the previous episode she was covered by purple orbs before she orbed blue. Only Gideon has been shown using purple orbs.

References to other movies, books, mythology, etc.Edit

  • Piper saying "You stay with Wyatt, and make sure he turns Pinocchio back into wood." is a reference to the story of Pinocchio, which was about a puppet of a small boy that came to life with the magic of the Blue Fairy. This is mirrored in this episode when Wyatt brings his toys to life.

International TitlesEdit

  • French: Hold-Up
  • Czech: Pomsta se nevyplácí (Revenge not Worth It)
  • Slovak: pomsta sa nevypláca (Revenge not Worth It)
  • Spanish (Spain): La venganza de una bruja
  • Spanish (Latin America): La venganza no es buena
  • German: Mit gleicher Münze (With the same coin)
