"To my three beautiful girls. May this give you the light to find the shadows. The power of three will set you free. Love, Mom."

The Power of Three Spell, also Warlock Spell, invokes the the Power of Three to vanquish evil and protect the Charmed Ones.

Referred to in the Book of Shadows as Warlock Spell, it has proven useful for the Charmed Ones in other types of situations; to protect themselves from other demons [1] or regain the trust in themselves.[2]

HistoryEdit

Vanquishing Jeremy Edit

JeremyVanquished

The Charmed Ones vanquishing Jeremy.

Prue had found their family's spirit board in the basement when she was looking for the circuit tester. Her sister Piper could not believe that they still had this, as it had been such a long time that she had seen it. She turned the spirit board around and read aloud the message that her mother had carved in the back.

A day later, when she and her sisters became the Charmed Ones, they were confronted by their first enemy, Jeremy Burns, Piper's boyfriend and a warlock. When Jeremy had trapped the sisters in the attic, Prue remembered the inscription on the back of the spirit board, how the Power of three will set them free. Prue and Piper began chanting the spell, and their younger sister Phoebe followed them. They kept chanting the spell and ultimately vanquished Jeremy.[3]

The sisters used the spell on Jeremy for a second time when he was brought back by the demon Abraxas and attacked Piper at P3. Because Piper had forgotten the spell, she called her sisters and together (through speakerphone), they vanquished him once more.[4]

Defeating the Dragon WarlockEdit

The third time that this spell was used was to vanquish the Dragon Warlock.[5]

Prevailing over the Source's HeirEdit

Charmed-Ones-Cage-Protect

The spell creating a protective shield around the cage.

The sisters had been captured into a magic cage from which magic couldn't escape. The Seer had just been crowned as the Source of All Evil and was about to kill the sisters when suddenly the Source's baby, whom she had stolen not long ago from Phoebe, became too much for her to handle.

The sisters were forced to make a plan; Phoebe said that they had to tap into all of the baby's power in order to vanquish the Seer and save themselves. All of the sisters agreed to cast the Power of Three Spell, which created a shield around the cage, which protected them from Seer's attack, and deflected it back, forcing her to vanquish herself, the unborn Source, the Infernal Council, and all of the demons in the lair.

Strengthening sisterhoodEdit

7x22-Sisters

The sisters chanting the Power of Three spell.

Zankou captured the Book of Shadows from the sisters by weakening their emotional state, destroying the confidence in themselves and the Power of Three thus severing their bond with the Book. Since their magical bond was weakened, the Book's ability to protect itself from evil was broken, thus making it touchable by Zankou and untouchable by the girls. In order to get it back, the sisters recalled all the good that they did and chanted this spell, re-establishing confidence in their powers and thus reforming their bond with the Book.

Phoebe's altered spellEdit

Nearly three years later, Phoebe created a new version of the Power of Three spell in order to vanquish the Source in his resurrected and most powerful form. The spell required the unification of magic of all white magic practitioners in the realm as well as the use of Excalibur.[6]

NotesEdit

  • This is one of the many spells to vanquish a Warlock.
  • This spell was used as the show's tag line on occasion. It would often be reworded to fit a certain theme or episode (The Power of Two, The Power of Three Blondes).  
  • A spell that requires all three Charmed Ones (to invoke the Power of Three) is commonly referred to as a "Power of Three"-spell but they should not be confused with this one.
  • Despite this being the most popular spell of the show, in the Book of Shadows Documentary, Alyssa Milano stated that whenever they would have to say The Power of Three will set us free, the actresses would complain about it.
    • It's often been rumored that the main stars had it put in their contracts for the spell to be used once or twice per season.
    • This might be the reason why the Power of Three spell has never been cast in the final season.
