For a complete plot of The Good, the Bad and the Cursed, go here.

When Victor takes Phoebe to visit a deserted town, she gets the same injures as an American-Indian trapped in a time loop of that town. Prue enters the time loop with Cole (which is stuck in the mid-1800s) to save the man, and Phoebe, from death at the hands of a local thug.

Time LoopsEdit


Time Loops entry.

A Time Loop is a Period of Time that repeats itself over
and over again ad infinitum. Sometimes a Loop is
localized to a specific place or group, but at other
times a Loop's effects can be felt globally. A few magical
beings are powerful enough to create Time Loops, such as
Tempus, the Devil's Sorcerer. But the causes of a Loop can
also be more Cosmic. For Example, certain spiritual
traditions believe that a great Evil or great Injustice can be
cursed into a Time Loop until righted. Once the evil has been
eliminated or the injustice has been corrected, Time will
stop repeating itself and again move forward for those
who were trapped in the Loop.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • The title of this episode is a reference to the film The Good, The Bad and the Ugly (1966).


  • When Phoebe and Victor are walking through the ghost town in the background on the porch, there is a water bottle, left there by either a cast or crew member.
  • When Cole first shows up at the manor, he has a slight beard and mustache. But once he and Prue shimmer to the town, he's clean shaven and then has the beard and mustache again.
  • In the living room after Phoebe was shot, Prue's arms are crossed, then when in the next cut, her arms are at her sides.
  • While in the town, Prue picks up the clothes of a guy, but later she is wearing a woman's shirt.
  • When Sutter's men go to find Bo, as they're on their way riding their horses, you can see Prue waiting on her horse outside the building, and then the scene changes to Prue playing with the revolver inside the church.
  • When Sutter falls from the horse after Prue shoots, and runs, you can clearly see that it's a stuntman.

Behind the ScenesEdit


Leo: Piper, he's gonna kill me when he finds out.
Piper: Oh, don't be ridiculous, you're already dead.

Victor: Don't get me wrong, Leo. I want this marriage to succeed, that's why I'm warning you. But there are dangers out there worse than demons and warlocks. You do know about them, don't you?
Leo: Well, yeah, sure.
Victor: Well, the dangers I'm talking about you're not even gonna see coming. The thing I'm talking about will just sneak up on you and destroy your marriage if you're not careful. Leo, do you know what a Whitelighter is?

Victor: You can't trust the Whitelighters, Leo. They're sneaky little bastards.

Phoebe: Well, don't get mad at me, I've been shot.

Cole: Gotta hold my hand.
Prue: This already sucks.
(Prue holds his hand and they shimmer out.)

Prue: Hi. What am I? A potted plant?
