To return back in time after casting the spell to Move Ahead in Time.
Those who have to be returned to the past
During the witch trials in 2009, which started after Phoebe Halliwell was exposed as witch and convicted for murder, Prue and Piper Halliwell planned to use this spell before their sister was to be burned to death. They found the Book of Shadows in a wall safe in Prue's office at Bucklands, and sought for the Return Spell. Piper mentioned that it was after the demon with the tusk and before the To Discourage a Lover spell. However, the spell wasn't there anymore, suggesting that their future lives had already used it once.
- Take us back from
- whence we came
- To Time and place
- that are the same
- Let past be present
- That time regain
- The spell can only be used once, the spell disappears as soon as the spell is cast.
- Although the spell was said to have been used before, and therefore vanished from the Book of Shadows, it can still be seen in later shots, several times.
- This entry as well as the "To Move Ahead in Time" entry can be seen as the background for the season 7 DVD menu, on disc 5.
