Just a thought - if Curtis was able to acquire the sisters power by injecting himself with the sisters blood, would the same work for demons? if they wanted the Charmed Ones' powers couldn't the just inject themselves with the girls blood and voila, have their powers?--HalliwellManorAkaDsc385 03:25, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
Didn't that happen in a Witch in Time? A warlock injected himself with there blood and was able to touch the book of Shadows? >.< Idk if they got the powers tho. HalliwellsAttic (talk) - (contributions) 03:28, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
Wow I believe that would work it worked for The three Demonic women in Repo Manor Charmednut 11:47 Oktcber 20 2011
Magical Bonding Edit
I was thinking The Charmed Ones are four women, Piper and her sisters Prue and Phoebe are full blooded sisters and Paige is their half sister. I was thinking and heard that their power of three was special but does it work only on blood related siblings what if Patty would have adopted a daughter instead of giving birth to one of them and that daughter wasn't a witch but a wizard.
Because otherwise any other magical / mortal woman who gives birth to magical three children can have their own power of three,

The power of three is specific to the Warren line, so it has to be three sister witches who possess Warren blood and powers. Charmdozo 14:08, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
So basically anybody would be able to steal or clone The Charmed Ones powers just by injected samples of The Charmed Ones's blood into their blood veins, exactly like Patra and Pilar and Phoenix did. Many demons are seriously lacking intelligence because it sounds so simple. Charmednut 16:24 January 16 2012
I think they would only be able to channel their powers as opposed to actually stealing them, which always seemed to be the main objective for every demon/warlock, even though some of the demons didn't appear to need them (Zankou, the Source). I guess it was that hunger for more power.
In response to Charmednut, I think the three siblings powers have to balance each other's out; one witch can't be stronger than the other two, and vice-versa. An example would be the case of Wyatt, Chris, and Melinda. Wyatt was a lot stronger than Chris and Melinda, so they wouldn't have been able to form a Po3; there's no balance. That why the Elders tried to make Chris and Melinda twice-blessed as well, so they would be as strong as Wyatt and create a balance between each other's powers.126.96.36.199 04:21, October 25, 2012 (UTC)Logan
Which trio would you rather see? Edit
Which trio would you rather see beside the original and the reconstituted power of three.
Prue, Piper, and Paige
Prue, Phoebe, and Paige
Prue, Piper and Paige. Not that I don't like Phoebe, but a Piperless Charmed just isn't an option for me. P3nathan
I completely agree with P3nathan, Charmed without Piper just wouldn't work. Charmdozo 21:34, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
Prue, Phoebe, and Paige. I like Piper better than Paige but the original power of three wasnt an option and since Prue and Phoebe are my two favorite sisters i chose Paige to develop Piper's normal MI and MC and not a hybrid version.Kt111 21:36, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
I would like to see Piper,Prue&Paige,Then Phoebe,Prue&Paige since in seasons 1-3 we had Phoebe,Prue&Piper,Then seasons 4-8 we had Piper,Phoebe&Paige. I wish they did not kill off Prue because then Paige could leave with All 3 of her half sisters and then they could just take turns using the power of three against evil. Plus I feel bad that only piper&phoebe got to be the ones to live with Paige in the end it is not fair Prue they are all sisters they all should of been living together in the end.
Yeah, I'd have it the same if Phoebe died, perhaps have the powers develop differently, but not nessecarily hybrid. I don't think they would have made hybrid powers if it had been Piper or Phoebe. Orbing and TK just go well together because they're both about movement. I know people have made theories, but I don't think they would have made MI or Premonition hybrid, like I said, perhaps just have them work a bit differently or develop in different ways.
It would have been interesting to see Prue's development if one of her younger sisters had died. I think for Prue it would be close to losing a child. I think Prue would see Paige as her redemption... she'd blame herself and torture herself for not better protecting her sister and act as a mother figure to Paige... perhaps going overboard trying to protect her. I also think we'd have Prue's magic go in a similar direction to Piper's since her trigger is also anger, perhaps the Fury storyline would have been used for her, I can see that. P3nathan (talk)
I think it would have been interesting to see Prue and Piper survive and find Paige. Phoebe became my least favorite sister in season 5, so I would like to see how it would turn out otherwise. It would also be interesting to see how it would effect Cole. He's probably go on a suidice mission against the Source to avenge her or go evil again. Charmdozo (talk) 14:42, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
Yes I imagine he would, it'd be interesting to see the direction he'd go in without Phoebe. I imagine Prue and Cole would become closer due to their mutual rage. There was actually a fan fiction a long time a go called Charmed Rewitched which was an alternate season 4 with Prue, Piper and Paige. What I read of it was good from what I remember, but it didn't go so long, I think the writer ended up doing another fan fiction. P3nathan (talk)
I know which fiction you mean. I sort-of got the impression the writer was aiming at a romance between Prue and Cole though, and I would really hate that. Charmdozo (talk) 14:56, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
Yes I got that impression too... I just hoped it was going to be a good friendship, which I think would be good, because they had good chemistry. But yeah, Prue getting it on with her baby sister's ex-boyfriend is just too weird for me. I'm more interested in the original P3 anyway as you know. I love Paige, but if there's an alternate route I'd like to see, it would be the originals P3nathan (talk)
Definitely, I can only imagine what kind of directions the show would have went with the original sisters. I cannot imagine Prue during the light and fluffy season 5.
I dont think they would have rushed to introduce Wyatt until Prue had at least a potential love interest given that it could potentially become another Bride and Gloom. The same thing with Phoebe and Cole's wedding. Even if at the end it didnt work out I doubt they would have wanted Prue to be the lonely spinster although that is a different angle for Fifth Hallliwheel. Some of the storylines were rushed in my opinion like Wyatt, and the Source's vanquish to the point that because of rushing them the writers had to create characters like the leprechauns to make it more family friendly.Kt111 (talk) 17:19, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
Even though i still loved charmed with Paige part of me thinks that had Prue lived the storylines would have been more balanced and lingering on the three sisters equally and not so much on husbands or kids (Leo, Wyatt and Chris) like it happened after her death.Kt111 (talk) 00:14, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
Season 4 was rushed, it was like season 4 was made to be the final season, as season 5-8 was like a new show for charmed. Wasn't the original plan Cole as the source for half of season 5. Buffyfan123 (talk) 04:36, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
Prue, Phoebe, Paige because I liked Phoebe's role as middle sister. Piper's role as the oldest was nice but I kind of got the feeling that the majority of the show after Season 4 was about her. Yemi1010 (talk) 09:35, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
Cole as The Source for half of season 5 would have been a good idea in my opinion... because to be honest the way they did it, it just felt like they were desperate to keep Julian in the show so stretched out a story arch that really they'd already finished. I mean really, I thought they completely destroyed the drama and intensity of Cole's vanquish in Long Live the Queen by having him back in the show, what was it? One episode later? Way to minimize the drama! I always thought a better way to go with season 4 would have been to have the sisters find out about Cole early on and then give Phoebe the biggest challenge she's faced as a Charmed One: saving the man she loves from being taken by The Source of all evil. Cole being influenced back into evil and Phoebe trying to help him fight it would have magnified the drama of their entire storyarch and then when she finally lost him (which I personally think she still would have) it would have been all the more devestating.
Anyway, I'm getting off topic.... as I said: Prue, Piper, Phoebe would be my main interest. As a Piper fan Prue, Phoebe, Paige just wouldn't work for me. Prue, Piper, Paige could have been interesting and it would have kept Piper as middle sister, which would have been a plus for me. As for what we got: Piper, Phoebe, Paige... I still enjoyed the show, but the sisterly chemistry just wasn't strong in later seasons. It went from 3 sisters who happen to be witches, to 3 witches who happen to be sisters... and then kind of ended up like 3 witches who happen to live under the same roof some of the time! It just got weaker and weaker I thought. Plus with the original P3 we had the eldest: head strong leader, middle: neurotic mediator and youngest: fun loving wild child. Now we had that same formula a bit initially in season 4, but then I thought it became less and less clear. P3nathan (talk)
I think they had to blend the original charmed ones' different characteristics into the remaining sisters making it really difficult to tell their real motivations. I like that their personalities were so defined in S1-S3 it made the unrealistic storylines more real because they knew what they wanted and why. I think by giving Paige Prue's indepent streak when it came to witchcraft it made Paige seem selfish, inmature and childish whereas Prue's independence came from a need to protect her sisters. I agree P3nathan it became more of a chore to stay in the same house instead of a choice one of the reasons why was the arrival of Wyatt and later Chris. That was the point when i thought of the manor as Piper's house. That is another one of th reasons why I think they rushed into introducing children while still maintaining Phoebe and Paige as recklessand wild single women.Kt111 (talk) 18:08, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
Sixth Sense Edit
I was about to re-wrire some of this article, and I'm sure the sisters have a sixth sense I remeber in Sense and Sense Ability Piper states that it was like a sixth sense, Leo then replies "It's always been there, It's part of what makes the power of three so strong" am I right, or am I trippin'? — OriginalAuthority 21:11, August 1, 2013 (UTC)
Phoebe dying instead of Prue Edit
Would The Power of Three still work if Phoebe died and her powers were transfered to Paige (Except Empathy)? Because I'm writing a fanfiction with Prue being saved and Phoebe dying.
- Prue's power wasn't transferred to Paige when she died. Paige is born with the powers she possesses. The Power of Three would still work if, of course, Paige was reunited with Prue and Piper by the Book in the manor. -- PerryPeverell 05:18, December 8, 2014 (UTC)
