Love's a Witch


The Power of Three Blondes is the 4th episode of the sixth season and the 115th overall episode of Charmed.


For a complete plot of The Power of Three Blondes, go here.

Three evil sisters cast a spell to steal the Charmed Ones' identities. After they got the Book of Shadows, they cast another spell to steal Piper, Phoebe and Paige's powers. The Charmed Ones quickly escape thanks to Paige still having her Whitelighter powers. Left with no other powers and without identities, the only thing the sisters could do to get everything back, is to convince Chris that they are the real Charmed Ones.

Magical NotesEdit

Book of ShadowsEdit


The entry on the Stillman sisters.

The Stillman SistersEdit

Mabel, Mitzy and Margo
Common witches known for their
small time hustles and cons.
Not worth vanquishing. If they
become a nuisance, try a
simple spell to bind their magic.

The entry in the Book of Shadows.

To Call a Witch's Power Edit

Powers of the witches rise
Course unseen across the skies
Come to us who call you near
Come to us and settle here.



Mabel casting the spell.

Bowl Divination Spell Edit

Mabel Stillman used this spell so she could spy on the Charmed Ones. A bowl with a black liquid in it are required for the spell to work. When cast, the spell shows what the desired person is doing at the surface of the liquid in the bowl.

Give me sight through the blackest bile,
Show me the faces I revile.
Identity theft

Mabel Stillman's Identity Theft SpellEdit

Mabel Stillman cast this spell together with her sisters to change their identities into the Charmed Ones'. The spell turned the Charmed Ones into nobody. It made the world see them as Piper, Phoebe and Paige, although they still looked like themselves. The spell also changed every picture of the Charmed Ones into theirs.

Blinking faces, blank and ho-hum,
We are they, and they are no one.
Grant to us the Power of Three,
And turn them into nobody.

Anti-orb SpellEdit

Margo Stillman said she casted an anti-orb spell to prevent Paige from orbing. That way, Paige couldn't show Chris that she was half Whitelighter, and that she and her sisters were thus the real Charmed Ones.

Notes and TriviaEdit

Charmed 6x0400:22

Charmed 6x04

The Power of the Three Blondes WB Trailer

  • This episode's title is an obvious reference to The Power of Three.
  • Phoebe is able to plant a premonition, even without any powers. However, it is possible that if she knew how to call for a premonition, she could send someone a premonition as well. (The Power of Two and Ordinary Witches)
  • Margo created an "anti-orb" spell that prevents whitelighters from Orbing.
  • Although probably just for comic relief, it's questionable as to why any evil would be deemed unworthy of vanquishing.
  • Mitzy says that they are "Charmed and dangerous", an allusion to the episode of the same name.
  • This episode is similar to "Repo Manor", where demons impersonate the sisters to access the Power of Three.
  • Jenny McCarthy, who plays Mitzy Stillman, had a small role on the movie Scream 3 and her character in the movie was also auditioned for by two other people, Shannen Doherty, who played Prue Halliwell and Charisma Carpenter who played Kyra on Charmed.
  • It is not known if Margo got any powers at all, since most of Paige's powers come from her Whitelighter side. However, when the Halliwells came back to the manor that night to confront the Stillmans, the Stillmans closed the doors to trap them. It has been speculated that this was Margo using Paige's Warren-witch power of telekinesis, but she could have possibly used a spell or potion to do this as well. Although, Paige's powers have been stolen by other demons intent on stealing witches powers, such as the Source, the To Call a Witch's Power spell was unable to do that.
  • Mabel was unable to freeze anything until she got scared; this is similar to how Piper originally triggered her freezing power for most of the first season.
  • The "To Separate a Witch from Her Powers" spell is used in this episode like in "How to Make a Quilt Out of Americans", but in this episode, the required potion is not used.
  • When the Stillman sisters fight with each other, the triquetra on the cover of the Book of Shadows splits, as it did in "Power Outage".
  • The sisters keep a trunk of "demonic leftovers", a collection of weapons left behind by demons after they are vanquished.
  • Piper loses her powers for the twelfth time and Phoebe for the tenth time in this episode. Paige also loses the Telekinetic part of her power again and has her orbing power stopped.
  • The Book of Shadows didn't turn evil when the Stillmans got their hands on it, unlike in "Bride and Gloom", when the sisters were turned evil and it flowed through the Book. The Charmed Ones weren't able to touch it after Mabel cast her "identity theft" spell, because the Book was distrustful of them.

    WB's promo

  • The WB Promo title for this episode is Dirty Blondes.
  • This episode contained many hints toward Chris' identity. He provoked the Stillmans into a catfight, as he likely knew his mother and aunts' powers were tied to their bond as sisters. He was also clearly freaked out when "Phoebe" and "Paige" were hitting on him and made a remark about knowing the sisters his whole life.
  • It is unknown how the Stillman sisters got an entry in the Book of Shadows, since they appear roughly the same age as the Charmed Ones. It can be presumed that either Grams or the Elders added the entry.
  • The evil sisters' names all start with the letter M, just like the Charmed Ones' names all start with the letter P.
  • Unlike in season 3, the points of the triquetra left the book's cover in this episode, while previously the points just separated.


  • Piper and Leo's wedding picture is in a different place than the one with Mabel and Leo and the picture with all three sisters is in a different place as well.
  • Piper's leg is severely injured when Mabel blasts her into the wall. However, when the sisters return to the manor, Piper is able to run and she's wearing the same pants as before, with no trace of blood.
  • In the attic, when Mabel freezes the sisters, Phoebe's earrings still move.
  • When Mabel freezes the room, Phoebe is in a different position than before.
  • When the Stillman sisters are talking about who gets which powers, Margo had her hand by her side, but in the next shot, when she talks about Mitzy's attitude, she has her hand on her shoulder.

On the right you can see Jennifer's stunt double.

  • During the scene when Paige goes to the citrus plant during the labor rally, her pink blouse is quite short, baring her entire midriff. When the security guard throws Paige out of the plant, Rose McGowan's stunt double is wearing a shirt in the same pink color, but it reaches all the way down to her waistline.
  • When Phoebe kicks Mabel after the Stillman sisters have taken the Charmed Ones' powers, Jennifer Sky's stunt double's face can be plainly seen, and also her hair is darker and less full.
  • When Phoebe is thrown out of the Bay Mirror office by a security guard, Alyssa Milano's stunt double's face is digitally blurred.
  • When the Stillman Sisters first walk into the attic, Phoebe and Paige are facing towards each other in front of the door. At the next scene when Mabel froze the scene, Phoebe and Paige are facing more towards the inside of the attic.
