Behind the Scenes


The WB promo

  • This is Gildart Jackson's first appearance as Gideon.
  • This is also the first appearance of Magic School.
  • When all the heads are put on something, an object is always there to hide the hole. Sigmund's head was on a table cloth, Piper's was on a cabinet with her body in it, and then Paige and hers were on books with Phoebe's on a map.
  • In Phoebe's vision Piper's future second son said "Aunt Phoebe, we need your help". When Phoebe came out of her vision, it was Chris calling her, which made Phoebe realize that Chris is Wyatt's little brother.
  • Taking Wyatt's approximate age into account in Phoebe's vision, it could be argued that she is pregnant with Parker instead of P.J. during her glimpse of the future.
  • Kaley Cuoco, who portrays Billie Jenkins, starred in a movie about the Headless Horseman, which, ironically, was called "The Hollow", which is also a name of an ancient vapor on Charmed, seen in Season 4 and Season 8.
  • This episode shows the most people being orbed by just one person.
  • This is one of four episodes that has the word "Halliwell" in the title.
  • This episode scored 4.8 million viewers.
  • Phoebe's vision quest shows her and Paige's future selves with the same hairstyles they currently had. Paige dyes her hair back to brown two episodes later and Phoebe is growing her hair long again by the end of the season. All subsequent visions of the far off future show Phoebe with waist-length hair.
  • Piper is the first sister to be beheaded, conveniently hiding Holly Marie Combs's pregnancy for the majority of the episode.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • The title of the episode is a reference to the story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820).
  • Piper threatened to turn Slick into a toad with a spell, invoking a common stereotype of witches.


  • Zachary was able to tap into Piper's power and freeze the other students, although her power doesn't work on good witches.
  • While Piper's head is perched atop the cabinet, her hair moves into different positions: around her neck, off to the side and behind her head.
  • When the students are frozen, they're together; when Phoebe and Chris return to the Manor, Zachary is separated from the others and they are in different positions.
  • When the sisters' heads are on the table, you can clearly see the hole under Phoebe's head.
