Notes and Trivia
- This is the Season 9 finale.
- Paul Ruditis has already confirmed that the Charmed comic book series will continue for another season.
- The title of this issue is an obvious reference to the Power of Three. It may also be a reference to the movie "300", which is also about an epic battle in Greece.
- The people shown at the cover are, from left to right: Phoebe Halliwell, Piper Halliwell, Paige Matthews, Prue Halliwell, Coop, Cole Turner, Henry Mitchell and Darryl Morris, with Leo Wyatt flying above them.
- This is the only cover in Season Nine to feature all the main characters.
- An alternate cover with Darryl completely covered by shadow was made by David Seidman to avoid spoiling his return, however it wasn't released due to Zenescope accidentally releasing the cover that revealed his face.
- Piper displays her molecular powers and Paige her Whitelighter powers on the cover.
- This is the first time that Prue as "Patience" is on the cover. This is also Prue's first season finale since the events of All Hell Breaks Loose and her 4th in total.
- This is the second time that Coop, Henry and Cole are on the cover. The fifth time for Leo and the first for Darryl.
- This is the fifth time that Piper uses her powers on the cover, the third for Paige and the second for Leo.
- This is Cole's first season finale since the events of Witch Way Now?.
- All the empowered mortals lost their magic after Prue cast a spell.
- At the end, Prue continues the season finale tradition of Charmed, by magically shutting the duplicate Halliwell manor's front door with her telekinesis.
- It's revealed the Charmed Ones, despite already being powerful, are going to grow even more powerful in the future.
- The Nexus of the All allows one to tap into much more power and magnifies than the powers of the Charmed Ones. It could also be the reason such powerful spells that affected magic itself could be effective.
