To Call Upon Our Ancestors

The entry in the Book of Shadows.

Prudence, Penelope,

Astrid, Helena,
Laura and Grace.
Halliwell witches
stand strong beside us,
Vanquish this evil
from time and space.

In this episode, the spell was adapted because it was cast by Ava Nicolae (with Phoebe and Paige helping her).


To Call Upon Our AncestorsEdit


Paige, Ava and Phoebe casting the spell.

Ava Nicolae adapted the To Call Upon Our Ancestors spell in the Book of Shadows, changing the names into those of her family and replaced Halliwell witches with Nicolae Gypsies. She cast it with Phoebe and Paige, who were helping her. The spell summoned the ghosts of Teresa, Lydia, and Ava's mother (Marina), who protected Ava, Phoebe, and Paige from Orin's power. They deflected one of his own attacks, which hit him, causing his vanquish.

Marina, Teresa, Lydia...
Nicolae gypsies stand strong beside us,
Vanquish this evil from time and space.

Cree is vanquished by the potion.


Gypsy Hunter Vanquishing Potion Edit

Paige and Phoebe created a Gypsy Hunter vanquishing potion, helped by Lydia. When Lydia left to warn Ava in the hospital, Phoebe had a Premonition and knew where Lydia was. They went to the hospital as well, but they were too late: Lydia was killed by Cree, right when they arrived. Phoebe then threw the potion, vanquishing Cree.

Magical BeingsEdit

  • Teresa - A fortune teller. She was killed by Cree in order to get her eyes.
  • Lydia Nicolae - After Orin found out Teresa's eyes weren't the ones he was looking for, he sent his son after Lydia. He killed her, but the Charmed Ones vanquished him before he could take her eyes out. Orin did it himself in the morgue.
  • Orin - A Gypsy Hunter. He was cursed with blindness by the Evil Eye, and only the Evil Eye could reverse it. He ordered his son, Cree, to go after the Nicolae Gypsies, knowing that one of them beared the Evil Eye. After killing Teresa, they found out Lydia had the Evil Eye. Cree killed her, but couldn't take her eyes because the Charmed Ones vanquished him. Orin did it himself, in the morgue, and restored his sight and obtained Lydia's power. He was vanquished by Ava Nicolae, adapting the To Call Upon Our Ancestors spell.
  • Cree - Orin's son. He killed Madame Teresa and Lydia, and then got killed by the Charmed Ones with the Gypsy Hunter Vanquishing Potion.

The Eyes Have It WB Trailer

  • When Piper was shot down by Orin, Wyatt didn't heal her. It could be the wound was too severe then for Wyatt to heal (as Piper's pregnancy advanced, Wyatt's powers must have grown); Leo had to heal her.
  • An episode of Criminal Minds is called "The Eyes Have It" as well, and it also involves someone taking eyes from people and putting them into something else.
  • In the first scene after the credits, Phoebe walks into the kitchen saying she hopes the coffee is leaded. Although, four years earlier, Piper said that she never makes leaded coffee, as Prue was the only one who drank it.
  • It's explained that a witch's power can malfunction due to stress and overwork.
  • Emmanuelle Vaugier (Ava) and Tobin Bell (Orin) both star in the movie Saw II and Saw IV.
  • Phoebe's Premonition power advances. This is the first time that Phoebe gets an Astral Premonition.
  • The WB Promo title for this episode is The Gypsy Curse.
  • The WB Trailer for this episode doesn't mention Cree or Orin.
  • Paige is shown to have prior knowledge about Gypsies and their magic.
  • In this episode, Phoebe said that she has not had a premonition in months. If you notice, since the episode "Witch Way Now?", Phoebe actually did not have a premonition in any of the episodes until this episode.
  • 'The ay(e)s have it', means that those who said 'yes', win the vote.
  • This is the only season 5 episode before "Centennial Charmed" (Cole's last appearance in season 5) that Cole does not appear in.
  • The spell that calls upon the Halliwell Ancestors does not summon any ghost-like beings that attack the evil that is to be destroyed yet the Nicolae-version does.


  • When Teresa reads Phoebe's palm, she draws lines on her hand, however, when Phoebe sat down at the table at the start, the lines were already there.
  • Phoebe said Ava wasn't in the attic in her premonition, but she is clearly seen next to Paige.
  • When Phoebe is having her first astral premonition, she holds out her left hand in the kitchen but her right hand is extended in the premonition.
  • When Phoebe, Paige and Ava are saying the spell in the attic, one of them says "stand strong beside me," instead of, "stand strong beside us."
    • That was Ava, who seconds before practised the spell using that line. Given that they were under attack, it is normal for her not to think of changing "me" to "us".
