In this episode, the spell was adapted because it was cast by Ava Nicolae (with Phoebe and Paige helping her).
Ava Nicolae adapted the To Call Upon Our Ancestors spell in the Book of Shadows, replacing the names of the Halliwell witches with those of the Nicolae Gypsies (her family). She cast it along with Phoebe and Paige to combine Gypsy magic and witchcraft. The spell summoned the spirits 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 back at him, causing his vanquish.
